Dave entered the home inspection industry in 1982 and has personally inspected over 15,000 residential and commercial buildings. He is the former president of ASHI of Southern New England, a trainer for the EPA radon program, and is currently the lead trainer for the EPA in mold and lead. When David created Sherwood Inspection Services, he had a vision for a home inspection company that would be thorough and professional, while simultaneously making the information easy to understand for buyers, sellers, home owners, and realtors. He has even developed a procedure for evaluating residential properties that is now used industry-wide.

Executive Instructor

John is committed to enhancing the home inspection industry not just for today, but also for the future. He acts on this commitment by providing home inspection business owners with industry-specific coaching. In 2003, John and his wife Kathy started their own inspection company, Checklist Inspections, in Phoenix, AZ. They started as a single-person operation working out of their home and have since grown to be a multi-inspector firm with their very own training center. As leaders in their market, Checklist Inspections was one of the first firms in the state to offer in-house ancillary services. John is also focused on creating a positive company culture within all companies he works with.
