Joel Hazelbaker, Owner, Hazelbaker Inspections

Joel Hazelbaker, Owner

(HI874, R2238, CGC#1519084, SL3117925)

In 2004 my wife and I decide to move to Florida. I shut down my business in Ohio and starting building homes in the Florida Keys (all high end waterfront properties). I turned my expertise to the home inspection field and began providing quality home inspections throughout Lee and Collier counties in 2010. He is fully licensed and insured as a Home Inspector, Realtor, General Contractor and Radon Technician.

My main selling point is my substantial construction experience. Most home inspectors have little if any practical experience in the construction industry and are ill equipped to do home inspections. My extensive back ground in quality control in the commercial and residential construction industry make me uniquely qualified to provide in depth, detailed home inspections.

My focus is in providing the home buyer with thorough inspections that will provide them with the facts they need in making an intelligent decision on what may be the largest investment of their lives.
