Meet The Face Behind Evergreen Home Inspection
I’m Ernie Simpson, the proud owner of Evergreen Home Inspection.
I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
I started doing home inspections in 1982, as I saw this business as something that was both interesting and extremely valuable if done right. As a home inspector, I could help people to understand the house they were interested in and save them from buying into properties that would bankrupt them.
When I first started, the overall quality of inspections was very low, as there were very few home inspectors back then. Today, however, the number of inspectors and the quality of inspections is much higher universally. The reports produced after the inspection are also way better. They include photos now, which makes it easier to understand the report. Similarly, they are helpful for inspectors to maintain quality control.
As an experienced home inspector, I have learned so much over the decades. To share my expertise and insights with home buyers, I compiled them into a book last year. It is called ‘The Ultimate Home Buyer’s Handbook,’ and is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Besides sharing useful content with home buyers, being a home inspector allows me to do a range of exciting work. During an inspection, I need to conduct hands-on research to identify problems and the best ways to solve them, which can be challenging but also rewarding, in my opinion.
To ensure my clients are happy with the services I provide, I make sure that I am as thorough as possible by taking enough time to do things right on the first attempt. I don’t rush an inspection, and I try to be appropriately alarmist only when need be and non-alarmist with the routine problems and issues that are commonly found in the house.
When interacting with my clients, I provide them honest feedback to look out for their best interests. After the inspection is completed, I convey what we can do and can’t do so that buyers can accurately assess the risks when buying a home.
At the same time, I am persistent with my efforts to help my clients and have the ability to communicate effectively with them whenever they have doubts or questions.
Over the years, I have achieved various forms of success like surviving the ups and downs of the real estate market, obtaining positive feedback and referrals from clients, and writing a successful book for home buyers.
When I am not at work, I love spending time outdoors either while gardening, hiking, or biking. I also like reading profusely about everything when I am free, and I enjoy Maine at the family lake house during our vacation time. Similarly, I like to spend as much time as I can get with my beautiful grandchildren.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
