This lady did NOT call me for her home inspection! Kidding aside, you have to be
careful who you use.
Mike Holmes & and his son are amazing guys. I've watched them for years. They have the
courage to acknowledge there are problem people in their industry, the home inspection
industry, as well as the real estate industry in general. They have little to no tolerance for it.
Thankfully, they are in a unique position to educate the public about these things and it is
making a difference. It encourages me to do the same, because I share their values.
The "WHY" you should consider using me begins with a brief education on some of the
problems here- and how I differ from many of my competitors. The home inspection industry is
NOT regulated in Hawaii. There are no licensing requirements. There is no supervision. That
means anyone can call themselves a home inspector. Like any industry, we have the good
apples and the rotten ones. The bad ones cause problems for everyone. They hurt people
when they do a poor quality inspection, and they understandably anger otherwise good
Realtors, when they miss important things or when deals fall apart for all the wrong reasons.
Here are some of the things going on here on Oahu in respect to some other home
inspectors- based on my own experience, discussions with peers, ongoing feedback from
Realtors, and how I differ. It bears mentioning, as again the industry is not regulated here:

Wouldn't it be just wonderful if:
Smart Buyers protect themselves through education, and researching major purchases
thoroughly first. They entrust those with experience in areas where they do not have the
experience themselves. They do not pay top dollar for something that needs thousands of
dollars in immediate repairs. Simply put, smart Buyers have a plan and are not influenced by
market or other pressures. They only buy when they have found the best home for them.
They stay in charge, and have home inspections performed. They know a home inspection is
not a warranty, but having it done just might prevent disaster. They also know having a
professional home inspection by a seasoned inspector is money well spent.

A real estate professional
Blackburn as a
inspector. We feel lucky.
Wayne impressed me
from start to finish. He
spent 5 + hours combing
through our prospective
residence from the crawl
space to the roof top and
everywhere in between.
He probed, tested and
examined all of the
systems, appliances, and
conditions in the house.
He provided a 17-page
narrative list with 132
items/issues for us to
consider before we
proceeded w the
transaction. It was
thorough. A few of the
problematic electrical and
plumbing issues were not
obvious and we would not
have discovered. He also
provided a binder with
color photos taken from
drone. V. cool and helpful
to see from numerous
aerial perspectives. When
he was done, he sat down
and explained the good,
the bad and the ugly in an
unhurried conversation. I
highly recommend him.
