About Us

As a Certified Professional Inspector, I'll bring over 20 years of industry-related experience to bear for you.  It's an honor working for my home-buying clients and helping them make Informed decisions.  ​Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I'll be an advocate for you, serve you and your family's interests, & bring peace of mind to your New Day.

Customer Reviews

"Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness
D.J. showed up on time and did a great job on our historic building.  The drone’s eye view was crystal clear and showed us exactly what we were buying.  D.J. was thorough with his inspection and his report was essential in helping us make the decision to buy."

What can I say about DJ and New Day Home Inspections? Extremely professional, answers any and all questions you may have, responsive, and overall a nice person. The attention to detail that he has went above and beyond what I expected. The report that he prepares and sends to you is high quality and goes into the details that you are looking for. He makes sure that you understand everything he is reporting and explains everything in easy to understand terms that the average person can understand. Whether I'm buying a house again, selling, or just need an inspection for another purpose, I'll be calling DJ again.Highly recommend!

"DJ does a great job! Very professional and thorough.

He takes time to explain things and is an excellent communicator!  We have used him twice in the last 3 years and would recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection!"

"Brett was awesome. Professional and a pleasure to speak with. He provided me with the important details while on site, and the inspection report had every detail I could ever ask for. I would definitely recommend."

"My husband is active in the air force. We had one week to get house picked out, offer made and get back to base before our actual move a couple months later. We hired a different inspector, and after that report, and questions unanswered, I was so uneasy.  I contacted Mr. Schmidt (sorry if misspelled). He didn't normally work so far from Tyler, but he cleared a day to redo the inspection and caught several issues the other guy missed.  I would use his services again if I could."
