Born out of a love relationship with the 100-year-old farmhouse Rick Belliveau bought after moving to Maryland, Rick combined his electrical engineering knowledge, US Navy submarine experience, and natural teaching ability to conduct pre-purchase home inspections for friends and relatives. He attended the Property Inspectors Training Institute course and quickly pursued the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) membership and certification while doing many more inspections on a part-time basis. The growing demand for his inspections resulted in a career move from Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory to a full-time inspections service. HHI now averages more than 2,000 inspections a year.
Over the years, Rick has grown the company to include 7 full-time and 2 part-time certified, licensed home inspectors as well as 2 offices; one located in Highland, Maryland, Howard County and the second in Prince Frederick, Maryland, Calvert County with both offices having full time-staff to meet our clients needs. In addition to pre-purchase home inspections, HHI offers pre-listing, maintenance and light commercial inspections as well as radon, mold and deck inspections.
