I love that man to no end and very proud to call him my friend. Larry Frace has a heart the size of Texas too and he cares so much for everyone. Larry is an "Old School" inspector and a very smart one at that. He uses the latest in technology but thinks before he does something. Well over thirty some years as a Home Inspector.. .. I think he is close to 40 years almost. This man is a Legend and I am honored to call him a friend of mine.

... and if you stumble across this Larry Frace, I love you man.




Nobody protects your biggest financial investment like the KING of Home Inspections!

John Paul ................

Thanks for the kind words. I've taken a few educational classes or picked up a few certifications or licenses along the way but not like this fellow.

71 yrs old & 35 yrs in inspections leaves me with about twice what I've attached here BUT most of mine are not used so not listed here.

The main ones I use in Expert Witness, etc are here.

Dan, Some of yours would take longer to acquire. Your field of knowledge is wide. The other guy does have more inspection specific qualifications, but a few of those totaled would only take a number of months to acquire. Certifications only go so far.

My vote goes to you

JP .............. at 71, I've had a few years to pick up some training, etc. 50 years of work in the trades and 35 yrs of inspecting (the 1st 6-7 yrs part time) and a bunch of related training there.

Grew up in a foundation, heavy equipment family building highways, roads, shopping centers, residential foundations, etc ..... Training started about 12 yrs old.

Original College construction mngt & mechanical engineering (hvac). Later in life structural engineering course work AND another degree in Real Estate.

Built large multi-family apts / condos in Denver & Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

National Service Mngr / Trainer for large Appliance / hvac manufacturer.

Factory Service Rep for Friedrich Air Conditioning.

Construction Supervisor for large volume Texas Builder .... SF homes, multi-family, strip centers, Senior Citizen Retirement Homes, Motels, etc.

Got sent to a lot of training classes along the way.

Mainly I've been out there a long time and got trained along the way.

Dan, That is a lot of real world experience. There is no substituting that part of the equation in inspection quality.
