Q: When is a home inspection necessary?
A: I usually answer this: "Well, it depends: how many surprises can you afford?" All kidding aside, although home inspections are not mandatory, they do make very good sense. Knowing the condition of a potential home allows you to make decisions with confidence and peace of mind. It also allows you to be proactive, and helps to keep your valuable investment in good repair.
Q: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
A: Teleportation! Breakfasting in Paris in the morning, beaching it in Fiji at noon, and still getting home in time for dinner. All the travel without the hassles!
Q: What is one skill/talent you wish you had?
A: Free running. I'd love to have that athletic discipline and body strength. It also looks like fun - until someone gets hurt.
Q: What is the last book you read?
A: Bee-keeping for Dummies. We need to help those little guys.
Q: What is your all-time favourite film?
A: The Croods - enough said.
Q: What do you love about what you do?
A: The work is never boring. I also get to meet lots of wonderful people who, for a moment, allow me the privilege of participating in the pursuit of their hopes and dreams.
