Texas Licensed Home Inspector

Reviews

    review rating 5  As a Realtor it’s important for me to be able to trust and rely on my vendor partners for their knowledge and expertise and I absolutely get to do that with Forest. He is truly “The Smart Inspector”, using the latest technology and his experience to conduct thorough and detailed inspections. I love that the inspection reports are delivered extremely fast, meaning before I even make it to my car at the end of the walkthrough! I know my client’s and I are in great hands when working with The Smart Inspector, thank you for all you do.

    review rating 5  Loved his knowledge & professionalism. I truly feel like we are partners in this together for the greater good of our clients. On top of that the co-branded materials add a nice personal touch to humanize the home buying experience.

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.
