About Honest Home Inspections, LLC

Honest Home Inspections is a Premium Service Inspection Company with full time inspectors and a full time support staff to serve you in every way we can. We offer many services  that other inspection firms simply can't. Why would you trust any other company with the largest investment of your life?

We are a multi-inspector firm and only employ the finest in the industry. All inspectors must be formally trained through an approved home inspection school before we will even consider hiring them. All Inspectors must go through and pass rigourous training under the president and lead inspector and they must obtain their certification in mold inspection before they are allowed to inspect for you. In addition, there are educational requirements above and beyond the state requirements to remain employed in our company. All inspectors must obtain the certification of Professional Certified Inspector (CPI) and are expected to work toward and obtain their Certified Master Inspector (CMI) designation.

Hi, my name is Scott LeMarr, President and founder (2005) of Honest Home Inspections, LLC, A Multi-Inspector firm with inspectors that care about you. My experience in residential real estate goes back well over thirty years when I purchased my first home at a very young age. Since then I have moved my family ten times, relocating to different cities six of those ten moves. Five out of the ten moves included hiring a home inspector prior to closing on our home. We were only satisfied with one out of the five and thoroughly disappointed with one individual. When I found myself at a crossroads with Corporate America there was a strong desire in me to help people and when the decision came to pursue a business on my own I was reminded that there was a need for high quality home inspectors. In addition, I would be able to help people with my experience and knowledge. I make sure this knowledge and attitude is continued in each inspector we hire.

During my research on the business of home inspection, several people were asked, including some realtors, what they were looking for in a home inspector. Surprisingly honesty came up several times. Thus, after an education with American Home Inspectors Training Institute, Honest Home Inspections, LLC was established in 2005.

My education at Wheeling Jesuit University and my education at American Home Inspectors Training Institute both stressed the importance of an honest and ethical business. I am happy to be operating a family owned business as it allows us to provide to you with an honest, moral, and ethical home inspection business bent on doing the best job possible.

During my families many relocations, all of the homes purchased needed remodeling. We painstakingly remodeled each and every one of them, replacing needed components such as roofs, siding, furnaces, A/C Units, additions, decks, plumbing, electrical, etc. I have been through both the pain and the pleasant experience of hiring contractors, doing the work myself and working with both great and downright terrible Realtors. During this time I also purchased investment property further adding to my experience in real estate and in older homes, several over one hundred years old.

Why the Bichon Frise as a mascot? We have had several Bichons and found them to be inteligent, caring animals willing to go to great lengths to please. This is similar to the way we run our company so the match is very close, this small company is large enough to serve  but small enough to care!

Let us take some of the stress out of purchasing your home or investment property by providing you with all the knowledge you need to make a sound decision, in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Buying and selling a home is truly one of the most stressful situations in anyone's life, Let us help!
