I graduated from CWU in Ellensburg with a BA in Business and worked several years in marketing before starting Star Appraisal in 1985. Star Appraisal then spred its wings to include professional Home & Pest Inspections. Star Appraisal & Home Inspection is a Caring Company providing exceptional customer service.

I am a Washington State native with love and passion for the Wenatchee Valley, Lake Chelan, and Central Washington.

My qualifications include:

  • AS in Electronic Technology

  • WA State Licensed:
    • Home Inspector
    • Certified Residential Appraiser

I believe a good education is critical in refining and developing your skills as a professional. All of the services are done by myself, a highly trained, experienced residential real estate professional.



Expect the Best; Demand the Best; Get the Best


I provide Thorough Visual Home Inspections and Evaluate the Conditions of the Components of the Home based upon Serviceability and Durability.

I perform extensive visual, pre-purchase and private home inspections. I evaluate the conditions of the components of a home from the foundation to the attic; as well as, the roof.

I report my findings of the serviceability and durability of these components. My reports also evaluate and report any safety conditions that may be potentially or eminently hazardous.

I do not give any estimates or do any repair work; therefore, I report my findings in an unbiased manner with no direct interest in the outcome of the report.

I strive to provide excellent service in meeting your needs for residential appraisals. Appraisals are limited to Chelan and Douglas Counties. I use on line data services; as well as, direct links with the counties for the most current sales and property data.

I am an active member of the NCWAR MLS for data and have key box accessibility to further accommodate customers.

My reports are delivered via e-mail in PDF format, although both cd & paper format are available if requested.

I do both Conventional & FHA Appraisals but do not offer Drive By Appraisals.

Structural Pest Inspections

I provide Complete Structure Pest & Dryrot Inspections for discovery of pests, dryrot, and conditions that have or may cause damage to the Structural Integrity of the Home.
