About the Founder, Rick Sayers:

Providing excellent customer service and value are the foundations of my professional practice.  As an engineering manager (at HP), state-certified home inspector(HI9363), and residential contractor (CRC1329531) with over 3 decades of experience, I have the technical and practical knowledge to provide thorough, unbiased inspections of your home, condo/townhome, investment property, or their component systems.

Educating and guiding others toward smart choices is another of my passions.  So much so, that after earning my engineering degree, I earned both Masters and EdS degrees from the University of Florida’s College of Education.  Because of this, I know that personal preferences and needs matter, and your home inspection is ultimately about informing you.  Your home is likely the most significant investment you’ll make, and it is crucial that you feel completely comfortable with the choices you make when buying, improving, or selling.  Whether you are an experienced do-it-yourself type or a busy family needing to move in fast, I will work with you to find practical, economic options that best suit your needs.

I have lived in this area for over 30 years and I do my utmost to serve the community by honoring the citizens who look out for all of us.  This is why I offer 15% discounts to: teachers, military personnel and veterans, first responders, those in law enforcement, physicians and medical staff, clergy, UF & Santa Fe College (alumni, students, faculty and employees ), and my personal favorite heroes, those 62+ years in age (unlike one of my former employers, I do pay for breathing… congrats!).

Informed Inspection, Inc. is ready to help you.  Go ahead, schedule your home, condo, insurance or light commercial property inspection.  You will be glad you did.
