The Home Inspectors
Jamie started Gold Key in 2005 and used his experiences in a variety of fields to help grow the company into one of the area’s largest and most trusted inspection companies. His background in teaching gives him an edge when it comes to educating buyers during the inspection process. His construction background gives him the knowledge base necessary to identify potential or current defects that are visible during an inspection. His love of building and houses gives him the enthusiasm that is vital to creating a memorable home inspection experience. Of all the responsibilities involved in owning a business, his most enjoyable moments are spent educating buyers on their home and helping their home buying dreams to come true.
Eric is a 1993 graduate of Western Michigan University with a degree in business management. After many years of working for the printing industry he decided to make a career change in 2007. He started his own home inspection education at that time and also became a professional in the HVAC industry. He is NATE certified in heating and cooling, EPA certified in refrigeration and educated in electrical systems. He was offered a great opportunity to work as a licensed home inspector for Gold Key Home Inspections. He is also certified to complete radon analysis testing and termite inspections. This is a position that he takes great pride in and understands the importance of each report that he writes. He enjoys meeting new people and has always tried to present his findings in a manner that is both professional and easy to understand. He looks forward to serving you for your next home inspection.
Before Dan joined the Gold Key team, he spent ten years working both with HVAC and refrigeration companies, as well as a skilled trade’s technician for a college campus. He received his initial education at Ivy Tech. He is now a licensed home inspector in the state of Indiana. He is also certified to complete termite inspections and radon analysis. One thing Dan enjoys about home inspections is the variety of homes he encounters. He has inspected homes ranging from old homes built in the 1800s to new construction homes. When Dan is not working, he enjoys watching sporting events and camping with his family.
Brad is not new to the housing market and real estate industry. He has family members that are realtors which has helped him to understand how the inspection process works. He started in construction right out of high school, working for a concrete contractor pouring basements, slabs, and patios during college, but ended up in the manufacturing field and worked as a supervisor for many years. After too many years of off-shifts and missing out on family time, Brad decided his handyman skills and his construction knowledge should be put to better use and he got back into the construction field doing small home repairs and concrete work. His sincere desire to help others and his conscientious personality, led him to become a home inspector . Brad really enjoys helping buyers and sellers! He takes great pride in making sure everyone understands the details of the inspection. Brad is married and has 3 grown sons and one grandson. He enjoys spending time with family, boating and traveling.

Learning something new everyday and educating the home buyers on their new home are some of the things that Josh enjoys about his job.
