How We Started

Our founder, Josh Rizek, heard from people who were disappointed with their inspector and wished they’d had better options. He knew his attention to detail and his passion for real estate would be a perfect fit to help others in their search for their home.

Josh has had experience in a number of industries, with small businesses and larger corporations. He has learned from each of these experiences and brings the best of both worlds to what he does at Acorn Inspections.


A Family Business

I am a husband and father of two boys with a daughter on the way. I would do anything to help my family stay safe, and that is exactly the way I will inspect your new home.

With the same care and attention I would give if it were my own. Because when you hire me, you’re family.

– Josh Rizek, Owner
