I have worked in the residential construction business since 2000, primarily working in high-end remodeling and renovation for the first eight years of my career. I have personally performed or assisted in every phase of construction, giving me the hands-on experience to identify properly performed work in older buildings, condo conversions, and new construction alike.
I used my experience to transition into a career with Allstate Insurance Co. and Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, but found I was hard put to resist teaching my clients about their home’s construction on the side. I returned to remodeling in 2013, and ultimately to home inspection the following year. I take an unusually thorough approach to home inspection, and have a policy of only performing one inspection a day to ensure every house receives my complete attention. I believe strongly in communicating with my clients and investigating all possible pitfalls in an inspection.
I have always appreciated both old and new construction practices, and my interest has given me more knowledge than most home inspectors, particularly when it comes to identifying problems before the signs are obvious. I believe strongly in continuing education and am constantly refining my skills through my membership in the International Association of Home Inspectors (InterNACHI).
As a home inspector, you can expect me to make sure you completely understand my findings – and likely to teach you something new about home construction. I am always attentive, never rushed, and completely at your service – in English, Russian, or Romanian.
“We hired Vio for a bunch of small handyman projects to get our home ready to sell. Vio was responsive, knowledgeable, honest and skilled. We were super happy with all his work: painting, replacing roof shingles, plumbing, electrical, painting, sheet rock, cleaning and repairing. He always arrived on time and completed the work in the amount of time he forecasted. Plus, his knowledge as a home inspector himself was incredibly valuable in terms of selecting the right work and projects to tackle. We would hire him again in an instant and highly recommend others do so as well.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Vio on a couple of my listings now. He was most recently instrumental in helping prepare a home for market. My seller was thrilled with him and his meticulous work. My seller said that he is neat, professional, and very conscientious of being in the seller’s space. He’s a hard worker and a terrific guy with great instincts for what needs to be done.”
