Miriam Saliba, Inspect It Like a Girl

I was welcomed into the Inspect It Like A Girl family in 2010 as a joint business partner with Pam.  I came on board as the Marketing Director and absolutely fell in love with inspecting.


I absolutely love having the opportunity to be such important parts of helping our clients find their dream home.  I couldn’t ask for a more rewarding and fitting job for me.


Here at Inspect It Like A Girl , we understand that purchasing a home is a stressful and time-consuming task. The last thing you need at a time like this is to deal with a home inspector who is difficult to deal with or hard to contact or who causes any other kind of stress. We know that the goal of a home inspection is to help home buyers relieve stress by providing them with the information they need to make an informed choice. Our business philosophy has always been to be as professional, straightforward, and as communicative as possible. When people in the Jackson area hire Inspect It Like A Girl as their home inspector, they know that they are getting an inspector they can trust to do the job right and give them the information they need.

Over our many years in business, we have built a reputation for excellence that we are extremely proud of. We love that we are one of the Jackson areas most trusted home inspectors, and we want to keep it that way. When you hire us to inspect a property, you can be sure that your inspection report will be thorough, detailed, and accurate. As home inspectors, our job is to take as much of the guesswork out of the home buying process as possible. When you know that your home inspector has made a thorough and comprehensive inspection, you can confidently make your decision about whether or not to purchase the home.

Real estate is the largest investment that most people will ever make. When you are considering whether or not to purchase a home, make sure that you are making the most informed decision you can, by relying on a professional, high quality, ASHI Certified home inspector, like Inspect It Like A Girl . We are looking forward to hearing from you.
