CAR Certified Home InspectorASHI

As your home inspector, I will do everything I can to give you an in-depth assessment of your current or future home. I truly enjoy and take pride in helping home buyers and sellers by providing them with guidance and information during the important process of purchasing or selling a home.

Certified by InterNACHI, trained by Pillar To Post, and a member of ASHI® (American Society of Home Inspectors), I have performed hundreds of inspections and enjoyed evaluating everything from small condominiums to multi-million dollar estates. Growing up in Guatemala and moving to the U.S. after college has given me a different perspective in life and an appreciation for the values of hard work and ethics to achieve one’s goals in this beautiful country. If you need a Spanish-speaking inspector, I’m your man!

Prior to becoming a home inspector, I enjoyed a long and successful career conducting online investigations and intelligence analysis. I worked with executives, prosecutors, law enforcement agents, and other investigators around the world. I am also very lucky to be married to a beautiful, smart, and caring woman and to be the father of our four wonderful kids. I look forward to working with you and being part of your home-buying team!

As a home inspector with the Pillar To Post Schroeder Team, I’m excited to work with you and get you all the information you need about your future or current home. I am certified by InterNACHI, certified and trained by Pillar To Post, and a member of ASHI® (American Society of Home Inspectors). I enjoy working with our clients and making sure that each home inspection I perform is a great experience.

Born and raised in Southern California, I bring a special appreciation and knowledge of the greater Los Angeles area. Growing up as a musician, I had the privilege of playing at area venues such as The Roxy and The Whiskey. Before I began my journey as a home inspector, I worked various jobs where customer service and accuracy were my main priority.

Outside of work, you can find me trying a new restaurant, helping animals in need, or playing ice hockey. When I’m not out on the ice myself, I’m rooting for the Chicago Blackhawks!


As Client Liaison, I want to make sure your interactions with our team are pleasant, professional, and efficient. My work experience has prepared me to help you with your home inspection needs. For more than a decade, I was an Executive Assistant to numerous top executives at Hollywood studios. I am well-versed in getting projects completed on time and following up on all details. My top priority is making clients happy and helping them understand they are in good hands.

When I am not working, you will likely find me at a yarn store picking up supplies for my latest knitting project. Socks are my specialty and my friends always ask for them as gifts. If I’m not there, I’m at Dodger Stadium cheering on our 2020 World Series Champs! It doesn’t get better than munching on a Dodger dog and watching them clinch another win!

As founder and President of the Pillar To Post Schroeder Team, my highest priority is to serve you by providing a thorough, high-quality inspection report, delivered same-day, combined with a superior customer service experience. My goal is to educate a home buyer or seller about the home while advising them on any concerns they may have—simply put, to be a trusted advisor during the home-buying process.

Trained and certified by Pillar To Post, North America’s largest and top-ranked home inspection franchise, and a member of ASHI® (American Society of Home Inspectors), I have performed hundreds of home inspections. Although I continue to enjoy inspecting, managing the constant demands of running a business is a full-time job in and of itself! My objective as a business person is to create a culture that keeps our employees as happy and productive as possible so that they continue to provide the top-quality service we pledge to our customers. You are the reason we are doing this work, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to serve you.

I grew up in small-town Ohio and moved to Los Angeles right after graduating from the University of Miami. During my childhood, I learned a lot from my father, a mechanical engineer, who single-handedly built a cantilevered, second-story, three-bedroom and bathroom addition to our home so that my three brothers and I could each have a room of our own.

Before embarking on my journey as a small business owner and home inspector, I enjoyed a decades-long career in broadcasting, garnering an Emmy Award for my work helping launch the NFL on Fox in 1994. Highly technical and detail-oriented, I hold our work to the highest standards, a quality that is crucial when it comes to real estate transactions. I look forward to working with you on yours!
