After graduating from the University of New Hampshire, Jon moved from the East Coast to Minnesota with his fiancée, Allison. His love of all things structural led him to study civil engineering at the University of Minnesota, then on to a residential landscape design and build company, where he helped homeowners realize their dreams of transforming yard and home. During the winters, Jon took on home remodeling projects, including renovating all the rooms in his current house, overhauling the bathrooms, redoing the landscaping and building a raised paver patio off the back of the house.
Home renovation and improvement and real estate have long be a passion of Jon's – and home inspection was the perfect way to blend his engineering background with his understanding of construction and his love of design. Jon is an associate member of the American Society of Home Inspectors and has passed the National Home Inspection Examination. He has completed Home Inspector training classes through the Kaplan Professional Schools, Inspection Training Associates (Kaplan ITA), the national leader in home inspector training. Jon stays on top of developments in home inspection, ownership and real estate through continual education at the Kaplan School and active engagement in the ASHI Association. He is also an affiliate member of the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors, Inc.
When he's not inspecting homes, Jon enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter and son and making the most of all four Midwest seasons through a variety of outdoor sports and activities.
