owner / inspector

David Horning

David Horning was introduced to residential home construction at an early age, as his father was a carpenter. David built his first house at the age of fifteen and has worked in residential construction, in one form or another, ever since. As he has personally performed most aspects of home construction from foundation to roof, he knows houses, construction methods, and the materials used.

David started Home Pro, Home Inspection Services in 1984, becoming the first full-time, inspection-only company in the Willamette Valley. Prior to that, home inspectors worked part-time inspecting houses, usually in conjunction with another line of work in one of the construction fields. 

David says, "We are a small company of two inspectors and a part-time office staff, which allows us to tailor our inspections around our clients’ needs. We therefore create a more personal, educational, and customized experience than other inspection companies. We enjoy interacting with our clients and encourage them to attend the inspection whenever possible. The most often repeated feedback comment from happy clients, assures us that their time with the inspector in what may become their new home, was the highlight of the inspection."

“Number 1” inspector

Kent Ramsey

Kent Ramsey was born into a construction family. His father owned or worked for several large construction firms in the Willamette Valley and Kent “grew up on the jobsite.”

Kent worked for his father and other contractors in the Willamette Valley until coming to work with Home Pro, Home Inspection Service in 2003. At that time all Home Pro inspections were performed by a team of two inspectors, David and Kent.  Since 2014, Kent has been the lead, primary, or (as he likes to say "Number 1" inspector.

Home Pro often receives favorable comments from pleased customers pertaining to Kent's knowledge of construction and important inspection issues, his ability to educate his clients, and his excellent sense of humor.
