Our inspectors have been learning and focusing on preforming inspections for years. They are all enthralled with construction and how things are constructed. Our inspectors are not just inspectors but more like investigators. It’s not enough to just identify the problem or defect. Our inspectors love to try and determine the source of the problem to help you make an educated decision when purchasing your home!

The inspector will view the properties with you explaining everything in detail, so you understand it, including the visual limitations that may exist. Extensive training and experience give our inspectors the insight about houses similar to yours, so they really know what to look for and can readily compare your house and its systems with other houses of similar age and condition. All homes have strong and weak points, and they are not always what they seem. The systems that we have incorporated into our company will allow you to gain the perspective and sound information you need to make better decisions.

I started TTBS in 2004 out of my home. We have grown to fill our own facility in Gaithersburg. I have been blessed to have found excellent employees along the way and have been fortunate to have been selected by some of the best real estate agents in the area to work with their buyers. We now have three distinct departments that have focused on the providing superior service. I have licensed inspectors providing an entire suite of inspection services, our real estate sign post department delivers and pickups signs for hundreds of agents throughout Maryland and Northern Virginia and our carpet and upholstery cleaning department was built on over 18 years of experience. We provide an excellent warranty and unparalleled service. My biggest regret is that I haven’t thanked all the people who have helped me grow my business enough. Saying it one time is simply poor. I truly appreciate all God has given me and those who have trust in our company. Thanks for all your support!
