Texas Licensed Home Inspector

Reviews

We are very happy with the services provided by the company The Smart Inspector. The entire inspection process was very professional and smooth, in the final report with each finding, Forest proposes a solution, also the convenience that the report is on the web, in a user friendly interface, plus a Free Home-Maintenance Reminder book! We will definitely use it again in the future and we recommend it to anyone who needs someone reliable, prepared and professional for the inspection of your home.

Forest was a referral to us. We called several inspectors when purchasing our first home. From the beginning Forest impressed us, was very polite on the phone, the day of the inspection he really took his time and did a fantastic job. He answered every question we had. We felt secure and comfortable asking him any questions. He also gave us recommendation and was very sincere on his report. We absolutely recommend him 100% best inspector for sure!

Forest is my go to home inspector. Not only does he know his stuff, but he explains things in a way that is easy to understand. Highly recommend.

About The Smart Inspector

I’m Forest Ivey, the Smart Inspector. Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, I still proudly call DFW my home. Despite having lived in multiple countries, I always came back to my roots. My wife of 8 years and three-year-old twins are all natural born Texans, too!

I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades and a master of learning. I speak multiple languages, play multiple instruments, and love to build racecars. I enjoy woodworking, welding, and electrical work. I pride myself in doing more work than is necessary and always doing things right the first time.

When it comes to home inspections, rest assured that I will be quite thorough with every inch of the property. From the roof ridge down to the foundation, no nook or cranny will go unnoticed. Relaying the findings to you, the client, is just as important as discovering them in the first place, and I will make sure you have a full understanding of the property you have inspected.
