FAA Certified UAV PIC
You only have ONE shot to get the inspection right when buying or selling a home. Your safety, health, and finances are at risk if it is not done right. That's why you need this guy.
Wayne Blackburn began his professional home inspection career in Honolulu, Hawaii back in April 2002. He was a member of ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) his first 8 years in the business and passed the supervised National Home Inspector's Exam in 2004. His real estate background began 27 years ago in Tampa, Florida where he served as a Property Manager, Construction Manager, Historic Registration Consultant, and as an avid renovator for his own properties. Oahu's Realtors value his work and refer him with confidence because they know the thoroughness, honesty and professionalism he provides are the best form of risk reduction for everyone.
Wayne has a reputation of honesty, integrity, and acting to protect his client's best interests. He is an advocate for regulating (requiring licensing for) the home inspection industry in Hawaii, AHIT-Certified, HAHI Master Level (Hawaii Association of Home Inspectors), a Licensed Home Inspector in Florida, and an FAA Certified UAV (Drone) PIC (Pilot in Command).
He conducts every inspection personally; he brings the objectivity, background, experience, tools, professionalism & ethics needed to do the job right- every time.
Wayne is also a licensed real estate salesperson in Hawaii (RS-78659 currently inactive). In fact, he has been a real estate licensee since 2011- selling in two of the most expensive, prestigious markets in the world: Vancouver BC, and Honolulu. This experience is a real plus for Wayne's clients because it means he has a far greater sensitivity, appreciation and understanding of all parties, and the working parts in a real estate transaction. Bringing parties together to solve problems is invaluable, in emotion filled, time sensitive matter.
All said, hiring or referring Wayne is a win-win situation because it means you are working with a very caring, ethical and professional individual with unmatched credentials- one who appreciates and understands all positions (and related emotions) in a transaction. His loyalty to his client- while standing ready to help everyone work through a transaction, separates and differentiates him from others.
You are MUCH more than a just paycheck to us.
Wayne takes pride on every inspection he performs and he truly cares. If you are not 100% satisfied, he will do everything he can to resolve the concern, up to refunding 100% of the inspection fee if necessary.
