About Geoff Stewart
Home Inspector Credentials
Geoff began his extensive inspection training in 2005 with Certified Inspection Training while living in Marin County, CA. He subsequently moved to the Oregon coast to start his inspection business. Oregon requires the prospective home inspector to become State Certified, pass the National Home Inspector Examination as well as hold a Residential Specialty Contractor’s license through the Oregon Construction Contractors Board.
The Oregon inspection certification process is exhaustive and culminates in a grueling examination. It doesn’t stop there. As a home inspector, you must complete 30 continuing education credits in the two years prior to the date the certification expires.
Geoff has gone above and beyond to become a member of the national American Institute of Inspectors since 2008, and became President of the Association in 2014. In addition, he is a Certified Foundation Inspector for Harrison Engineering, LLC for manufactured home loans for FHA, HUD and VA compliance. He previously served as a Verifier for the Oregon Dept. of Energy and performed inspections for large builders who built to Green Building Standards.
Previous customers praise Geoff for his thorough observations, timeliness and easy-to-understand explanations. Geoff is particularly proud of the fact that many of his customers have been real estate agents who have even hired him to inspect their own homes.
Prior to becoming a home inspector, Geoff worked as a sales representative and wood grader in the wholesale tone wood industry, the wood used to build musical instruments. He takes pride in his keen eye for quality and his ability to work with people. When he’s not inspecting houses or promoting awareness of the home inspection industry, Geoff loves to garden and cook. He’s also an accomplished classical guitarist.
