Jamie started in construction when he was a teenager and took his 25 years of building and remodeling experience and built it into a strong and successful business. Angie was a travel agent, also growing a successful business, networking with other local entrepreneurs, and helping to build community. When the two decided to buy a home, however, everything changed. A less than exemplary home inspection alerted them to a possible gap in the industry they knew they could fill.
And so they took that experience and decided to be the change in the industry that people deserved. Now, at J.Wahl Home Inspection, with Jamie as one of the experienced home inspectors and Angie as the business-minded perfectionist, they have built a home inspection company the industry and the community can count on.
