Texas Licensed Home Inspector


    5 star review  Forest was amazing. I have learned so much from him during the inspection process. I have referred him more than once and my clients are very satisfied. His report was complete and he took the time to explain to the clients. I will continue recommending him.

    5 star review  Wow! Forest Ivey is THE BEST home inspector in Texas! I was very impressed with his work and professionalism - The Smart Inspector indeed! An excellent job well done, very thorough from start to finish. He took pictures of EVERYTHING and explained in detail what the problems were and how I could get them fixed in a format that was very easy to understand and follow. Also he had different fancy gadgets to check heat and lights and all sorts of things around the house I wouldn’t have even thought of looking for. He made me aware of every single detail of my house and I learned so much. I would 200 percent recommend Forest as your home inspector. I have worked with other home inspectors in the past and no one has even come close to the top notch quality and detailed worked Forest has done. If you want to know exactly, in every single detail big and small what is going on with your home - you need Forest Ivey to come to your house! He will make the process very easy and understandable as well and is willing to answer ever single question you may have. HIRE THIS MAN! You will be very glad that you did!

    5 star review  Forest is my go-to inspector for the Prosper area. He is very responsive, does a thorough job, and goes over his findings with me and my clients as soon as he finishes. I love his reports as well. He is easy to work with and does a wonderful job. Highly recommend his services.

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.
