About David

David K. Smith
 
 

     I am a husband and father of four as well as a recently retired 20 year veteran of the Longview Fire Department.  After graduating from with honors from Paris High School, I completed my education at the prestigious Austin College with a degree in both Economics and Business Administration.

 

 

 

     I began my career in the construction industry working hands on with both builders and general contractors  therefore, I have vast array of knowledge in all aspects of this business.  My experience allows me to look for deficiencies and also recognize quality workmanship.

  Also, my career as a firefighter has also given me the ability inspect commercial businesses and residential structures alike.  I have been trained by some of the most qualified and recognized inspectors in the industry and received my certification from one of the top rated schools in the nation in home inspection. 

     I  realize that performing a complete and thorough inspection is important for my clients because buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will make as a consumer.  Being aware of potential issues beforehand will help with ones choice and peace of mind knowing they are making a good decision.
