Yvonne (The Boss)
With a background in Architecture, I have a general understanding of a home. As part-owner of Pro Spex Home Inspections, I have a general understanding of the home buying process. As a mother of four and homeowner, I have an understanding of what it takes to endure! Whether it's the home inspection process or the juggling of schedules and time. Questions need to be answered and assurances need to be made. At Pro Spex, there is someone you can talk to who is not computer-generated! So continue to call. I would love to hear from you and provide the help you are looking for!
Just Ask Our Customers:
I highly recommend using Pro Spex for inspections. You can not beat their customer service. Yvonne took the time on a Friday evening to explain everything I could possibly need to know about getting a radon inspection in a condo and even followed up with me after it was done to congratulate me on a radon free condo!

Growing up in a large family with cousins in different countries has shaped me into becoming a very outgoing person with a passion for traveling. Being around people, I have always had a strong desire for the need of helping others. A graduate of Laurel High I plan to attend Howard Community College before transferring out of state perhaps in the later future, My favorite color is red. In my free time, I like to be with my friends either exploring new and fun things to do, taking painting classes, going to museums, and art galleries. I also have a passion for music and enjoy attending concerts by my favorite musicians. I got into writing in middle school when I developed a passion for books. Reading was not enough, I wanted to create my own stories and began free writing short stories before joining my Journalism class and school newspaper in High School. That instantly sparked my interest in journalism. I like foreign countries in Europe. I want to visit Italy, for the culture, scenery and food. As well as Spain, France, and Greece. I also want to visit Indonesia and spend some quality time in Bali, it has always been a beautiful island I crave to experience.
I was born and raised in Maryland by my Haitian mother, who taught me home values in this complicated world. Growing up Haitian in an American society help me have the best of both worlds, living and learning traditional values from my mother and learning the modern perspectives of life for myself. I am student at Bowie State University with a major of communications with a focus in public relations, hoping to graduate in May 2020. I have a love for music and been singing in choirs since the third grade and currently sing with my school's Gospel Choir. My favorite color is pink because all things fascinating are pink like flamingos. I inspire to have successful career in public relations and hope to get the opportunity to work behind the scenes in the music and television industry. Now as a student and working part as a Pro- Spex associate I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to the movies, museums, and concerts.
Born and raised in Maryland I have always had a passion for photography. After high school I decided to pursue my dreams and go to school for photography at the Art Institute of Washington. While working in the home furnishings industry I discovered my interests in homes, design, and building. After three years in the retail industry I decided it was time for a change. I wanted to be around homes and also continue to help people, Pro Spex seemed to be the perfect fit. I also enjoy playing music, going to art galleries, and spending time with my family most importantly.
Looking back it started in high school. I was born in London England, where I spent most of my high school years. I enjoyed playing the violin, loved math, carpentry and soccer (the real Football). We later moved to my parents homeland, Dominica. There I continued studying math, physics later to become a teacher before moving on to become an air traffic controller and flew small planes. Sitting still was never one of my strengths. I discovered I liked teaching when I taught high school math and later design communication at Howard University school of Architecture. Architecture refined my communication skills and gave me a 2nd chance to teach;
Home Inspections gives me an opportunity to continue to educate people, meet new people daily and the mobility I have always been drawn to. And then there are my kids. Between my wife (The Boss) and I, we have Martial artists, a budding gymnast, football player and a soon to be Interior designer and two young men out in there world doing there thing............... 🙂
Customers say it best:
Glen and ProSpex originally came from a friend that has used him twice in the past. Good lord, look no further. I was not aware that one person could spend two hours inspecting an 850 sq foot condo, but I now can confirm that it is. Glen was extremely knowledgeable, courteous, patient, professional, and did not make me feel unintelligent for not being knowledgeable on what to look for when expecting our new condo..............

A native to Baltimore City, I joined the U.S. Army after high school working as a crew chief for helicopters, learning about the working systems, and how to keep them flying, while traveling around the world. In a few short years, I became a technical inspector, and found inspection was my niche. This opportunity allowed me to work for years as a quality control inspector in the manufacturing world of jets and helicopters after the military working for major aviation companies. I have also worked in the home and commercial construction field, installing electrical systems from start to finish, learning about some of the various types of building construction along the way. I like to spend a good part of my time learning of the constant improvement to building materials, and seeing how building are designed, maintained, and repaired. I like to be hands on with everything, working with my home, cars, and boat, using them in my spare time, whether from in the backyard, or on the water.
We Do What We do for People Like You:
We give Pro Spex 5 stars plus!! We hired Pro Spex Home Inspections because our realtor highly recommended them. We are buying our first home and we wanted to do things right and Pro Spex was the perfect choice for us. Each rep we spoke with over the phone was very informative. Joe Clavey, our inspector, was very humble, competent and patient with us and answered all of our questions. He told us what the inspection included and when we got our report we saw that everything he told us was in that report. ..........

I have always been interested in how the built environment affects people's quality of life. I started getting my hands dirty (literally) at the early age of 14, alongside my father, a brick mason for many years. I also worked on a farm and built furniture by hand.
As a Kansas native, I completed school, then moved to Brooklyn, NY where I met my wife of 39 years. With my knowledge of masonry construction, training in conventional and gas fireplaces, certification as chimney inspector, there is no doubt that I love homes!
I have a hidden hunger and driven knowledge for home improvement, and volunteering with community organizations. Being part of the Pro Spex Team of home inspectors, I look forward to sharing my communication skills, and knowledge to a Team of already great Inspectors.
Customer Opinions Matter:
Great experience!! Easy appointment setup process, very reasonably priced, excellent customer service. Stephen did my inspection and he was very thorough. He arrived early and talked me through each step of the process. Answered all of my questions and provided tips on maintenance items to look out for. The inspection report was provided timely and, while being easy to understand, was comprehensive and very detailed with photos and comments. Highly recommend!

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Steve moved to Maryland in 2010 to be closer to his now wife. Together they are raising their twin boys Ben and Clyde born in May of 2017. When his hands are not full with his boys, Steve loves to be outdoors hiking, paddling and surfing with his dog (who loves to splash in the waves after a wipeout). A community minded individual, Steve spends his spare time volunteering at the local hospital with Buster, his dog, who has received Presidential Accommodations from two Administrations for his wags, woofs, and licks with the hospital patients. In his better days, Steve enjoyed athletic success in on the baseball and football fields. Both are passions that he plans to share with his children as coach one day (Go Giants! Go Niners!). Steve loves to work with his hands, furnishing his entire house by hand. His attention to detail combined with career spent in customer service related fields will equal a service experience that few others can offer.
Customer Satisfaction Counts:
Spectacular service from inspector Steven P. A thorough inspection conducted with professionalism, integrity, and a wealth of knowledge. Steven was very patient, answered all questions, and provided helpful tips along the way. My agent stated she will be adding Pro-Spex to her go-to inspection company list. Look no further...this is the company you need to book! Thank you again!

Today I had a home inspection done by Matthew Nunez. Very professional! He arrived early and did a great job! I wish I needed more inspections done to hire him. I definitely recommend him!
Chelise M. Oxon Hill Maryland
A resident of Frederick MD.
Growing up in Buffalo N.Y., I always enjoyed looking at all the different Architectural types of homes the city had to offer from Victorians, Tudors and even Frank Lloyd Wright Homes. I started painting houses when I was 16 to earn money to buy my first car. Over the years I have learned how to do many home improvement projects from installing ceramic tile floors to doing electrical upgrades. After quite a few years of holding various managerial positions in the Consumer Beverage Industry I decided to settle down from too much business travel and utilize my professional skills to become Home Inspector and follow my passion of being around houses.
The main goal is to help clients make an informed decision about the home they want to buy. I also like educating homebuyer’s on how to properly maintain their house along with ways to help them save energy and money. Homes are getting more energy efficient and complicated so that's an area where I have been focusing on additional education.
Customers Want Detail:
My inspector Chris Quick is a stickler for detail, looking at EVERYTHING very thoroughly for several hours, and patiently walking us through every inch of the house. I am upgrading from a condo to a house, and I wanted someone trusted to tell me if there was anything wrong with the house. Chris was my guy. If we ever move to another house, I will call Chris and Pro Spex again. They are THAT good! !
Carol HM. Maryland
As a Native of Washington D.C. (Chocolate City) I am also a graduate of Phelps High School. Soon after graduating High School, I found myself working in the plumbing industry, and developed a specialty in diagnosing underground drainage problems. Many people question how I can love being so close to sewage (minus the smell of course), but for some reason, I do! I love learning the new hi tech systems and teaching people about this part of the home that is often overlook. With over 10 years of experience in this field, I look forward to using it every day to help customers avoid major expenses.
I, fortunately, am a Cowboys fan and as you can imagine, the family rivalry is pretty intense during football season. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with Family and Friends. My two daughters are the joy of my life and I am truly enjoying the opportunity of being a Dad. My favorite movie is Taken 2, and favorite city is Miami.
