Orlando – HERO Inspection and Environmental

With the unique customer-first approach, I just knew that I could make it a success.

I am originally from Germany, and in Germany, it seems as everyone grows up with a background of learning construction, architecture, and engineering with their dads – just like I did. I have always loved building and remodeling long before it became cool on HGTV. A diverse background in customer service, veterinary services and working with my hands, cultivated a unique set of skills that lead to the home inspection profession calling my name.

I was in the process of moving from Seattle to Florida with my boyfriend who happens to be a childhood friend of one of the original HERO Home Inspection owners, Greg Fowler. Listening to them talk, I kept hearing about Greg and Curt’s (the co-founder of HERO)success with a fresh approach to a blue-collar business.So, since the beginning, I’ve had my eye on the HERO franchise. I appreciate the customer-first approach that Greg and Curt were taking in an industry dominated by inspectors who have the traditional mentality to burn and churn. They were coming from a direction of being a home-buyer’s advisor and offering up support and protection, rather than always trying to be the smartest person in the room.

The HERO model is a new way to do business in the real estate world because it supports the professionals in the industry and American families buying their new homes. When Greg and Curt said they would love a HERO franchise in Orlando… it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I just knew that I could make it a success.

So, I took a leap. I started a new business in a new city while moving as far across the country as possible.By combining my passion for building along with customer service and taking great care of people, I’ve landed in the perfect career – a HERO franchise owner.

In addition, being one of only a few women in this business, I appreciate the incredible support I have received from the Real Estate industry in Central Florida. They have been an invaluable resource for my business and success. I look forward to protecting many clients and their Realtors® for years to come.
