Josh began his professional career working as a home consultant for CMH homes in 2005. in 2008 Josh was promoted as one of the youngest General Managers in the history if the company. Overseeing and managing over 45 completed homes per year, Josh gained an eye for detail and an appreciation for quality work from his contractors and employees. His years in the trade have helped him to understand not only what goes into building a quality home, but what can go wrong as well. Josh was responsible for inspecting the homes during the various phases of construction as the general contractor.  

Josh recently was recruited to open a State Farm Insurance Agency in Salem, Va. in 2015. In helping his insurance clients and working with local REALTORS, with home insurance, Josh discovered complaint after complaint about the home inspectors in the area.  


Josh co-founded Green First Home Inspections to provide the right inspection, at the right price, right away.
