Michael Brisbin, Licensed Home Inspector Michael Brisbin has been a full time Home Inspector since 1993; serving the greater Puget Sound area. Mike has experience in the remodeling and the construction industry, mechanical and civil engineering, and worked for the Building and Public Works department at the City of Bothell. He attended the University of Washington, studying Civil and Mechanical Engineering. Mike has performed thousands of inspections around the Puget Sound region, in four counties; inspections on single-family homes, multi-family buildings, condos, manufactured homes and new construction.
Mike is an active member in the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) - both at the National level and with the Western Washington Chapter, since 1996. He served as the Chapter Vice President and President between 2011-2016. As a member of ASHI, Mike follows the strict Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, which all members must adhere to as a minimum inspection standard. Mike is also an Associate Member of the Washington State Pest Management Association (WSPMA). To maintain the WA State Structural Pest Inspector (SPI) License, 60 hours of approved education credits (every 5 years) is required in the Home Inspection/Pest/WDO fields. This WSDA SPI license is strongly recommended for all home inspectors performing WDO/WDI inspections. Mike acquired his license in 1993, at the beginning of his home inspection career.
Mike and his wife, Jane (has been in the real estate industry since 1987), attend many of the National and Local ASHI Home Inspections conferences, Canadian (CAPHI-British Columbia) and ASHI conventions/annual meetings and the Inspection Training Associates (ITA) National Expo.
Christi Baqui, the Office Manager, and my wife's daughter, is answering the phones in the office, booking inspections and does some of the paperwork. After being in the Title industry for a few years, and in more recent years a paralegal at a local law firm, she retired to spend time with her new grandchildren (Skyler and Jaiden). She has an understanding of the needs of the prospective Buyers, Sellers and Brokers, and is qualified to answer many of your questions about the Home Inspection process.
