After purchasing his first rental property, Matthew quickly learned and appreciated the priceless value of a great home inspection. After making a few mistakes by not valuing the home inspection process, Matthew set out to learn as much as he could about home inspections to protect himself as he invested in additional properties. As he learned more, and investigated the industry more, he found there was a need for more, quality home inspections. He became a student of the industry and soon after became a licensed home inspector himself. In addition to being a home inspector, Matthew is also a licensed New York State home inspections teacher, a licensed Mold Assessor, Termite Inspector, Utility Consultant, and 203k Consultant. He also owns and operates a home inspection school, helping others attain their dream of becoming a licensed home inspector, and has put dozens of people into the profession. Matthew also saw that many of his students excelled at doing home inspections but struggled with the business side of the industry. From that revelation, The Home Inspection Boys were born. He knew that if he developed a great business model that was easy to learn and operate, he could help other home inspectors achieve their dreams and allow them a way to build wealth and create equity in a business. Matthew’s passions are real estate and people. The Inspection Boys allows him to live out his passion every day.
When he’s not working, Matthew is a devoted family man and father of five children.
Matthew has always had a passion for real estate and helping people. After purchasing his first rental property he quickly learned value of a good home inspection. Learning from his mistakes he started learning everything he can about home inspections. Noticing what the industry was lacking he set out to become a licensed inspector. Matthew has 17 years of construction related experience. He is also a NYS licensed home inspection teacher, licensed mold assessor, termite inspector, utility consultant, and 203k consultant Understanding that the industry was changing and technology was replacing a lot of the old ways. Matthew started a home inspection school. It wasn’t enough; he then realized that most students were great at doing home inspections but not great at running a business. This was the birth of The Inspection Boys. He wanted to combine the latest technology with the systems and processes to be successful. When not at work, you will likely find Matt alongside his family of 5 in one of their many homes enjoying family time.
Robert also shares Matthew’s passion for real estate and people but took a different path to success in the home inspection industry. Robert grew up in an incredible family and and his parents loved and supported him in everything that he did. Like many parents, they wanted Robert to be successful and wanted him to get a job and work for someone else as a way of providing for himself and his family. Robert and his wife Melissa started their family when Robert was just 20 years old. Robert says that having his first child at such a young age propelled him to think about the way he wanted to raise his kids and how he would provide for them. He knew that he wanted to run his own business and become an entrepreneur so he would have control of his future, and make money for himself, not someone else. With his background in construction, Robert was soon introduced to the home inspection industry. Finally, he had found an opportunity that combined his desire to succeed in his own business, with the knowledge and skills he had learned in the construction world. By becoming an Inspection Boys franchisee, Robert soon had his own successful franchise and wanted to teach others how they too could own and operate their own franchise.
Robert believes that anyone with a strong work ethic and a desire to succeed can own and operate an Inspection Boys franchise, and he will be there to support them along the way. A little back information of where I have been to understand my visions for the growth of The Inspection Boys & partners. My beginnings is not so different than the average person who was brought up in a middle class family. I grew up with a roof over my head and the worlds best parents, but parents with very limited vision of what’s possible outside of what they knew and were comfortable with. I started my family at the young age of 20 with my wife Melissa. Having a child at an early age began as the scariest thing I could imagine but was the biggest blessing I could of ever asked for. I knew that the struggles I witnessed my parents go through was something I never wanted to feel, this FEAR is what set my attention to focus on what is possible and helped to exit my “comfort zone”. I found the home inspection profession was something I was passionate about and also can help others which I enjoy greatly. With previous knowledge and experience in construction I completed the NYS requirements quickly to obtain my home inspection license over 4 years ago. Being a licensed home inspector has provided a great education and has been an asset to being able to run a successful home inspection franchise. The ability of knowing and experiencing many of the difficulties a franchisee partner may go through and having the ability to advise them of how to navigate through from having first hand experience is exponential. Focusing on the most important aspects of running a successful business and learning many of the traps and paths that don’t lead to success allows us to be a great partner for our franchisees. I believe very strongly that each and every person can achieve the greatness we all have within ourselves and I am excited to be a position now to help those seeking their greatness find it!
