Seattle Home Inspector Jim Estrada

Jim Estrada, president and lead inspector for Property Inspector LLC, has an incredible passion for the inspection business. After graduating from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Chemistry at the age of twenty, he was involved for the last thirty five years in extensive remodeling projects and property management. He graduated at the top of his class from Inspection Training Association, the premier home inspection school.

Jim has been inspecting for almost 15 years and preformed over 10,000 inspections. His inspections exceed the Standards of Practice of ASHI, (The American Society of Home Inspectors); he’s a certified member of ASHI, and on the ASHI local Board. His inspections also exceed the Standards of Practice for the State of Washington where he holds his Certified Inspector License #210. He is licensed by the Washington State Department of Agriculture #65027 as a Structural Pest Inspector for detecting Wood Destroying Organisms. These inspections are recommended along with all home inspections.

Jim says:

“We’ve been doing a great job for over 5,000 happy home owners in the Greater Seattle Bellevue Metropolitan Area for almost 15 years now. If you have been to our website, you’ve read what some of those folks have to say about our service and follow up resources. Before I got into the home inspection business, I remodeled and managed properties for more than twenty five years.

Very few inspectors in Greater Seattle have that kind of experience – experience that we put to work for you at your home inspection. We can communicate in English,  Chinese, Filipino, and Spanish with our reporting WE WORK FOR YOU!

Not the Realtor or the Seller, or the lender, or anyone else. Most of all, we have a genuine interest in seeing that our Clients are given our clearest and most honest opinions about the conditions in the home they are considering. We’ll tell you what we see. We’ll talk to you about how important anything might be, and we’ll discuss what your options are. We are a full-service inspection company, and we are out to do you a great job.”
