Texas Licensed Home Inspector
I used The Smart Inspector on a house after we entered the contract phase. His insight saved me from getting into a money pit. I used him on the next house we went under contract with, and we purchased that house. He was professional and helpful. I will use him again, and recommend him to others.
Forrest was amazing and very thorough with his report, taking the time to explain things to these 2nd time home buyers. The website interface was great and very easy to understand and relate back to our realtor. Not only would I recommend him, but I myself will nit forget to ask him first.
Forest was very thorough and I really liked the program he used (which I had never seen before!). Typical inspections are 45 pages long and his process was much less complicated. My clients were able to review his finding with ease. The Smart Inspector definitely will be added to the top of my list of preferred home inspectors. Thanks again!
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.
