IN BOBBY'S WORDS - A PERSONAL BIOGRAPHY
I am a born and raised local Oklahoman. I have been married to my wife Amber since 2009, and we have two boys, Judson seven and Easton two. They are our pride and joy!
I graduated from Lawton High School and then attended Cameron and studied Criminal Justice. Along the way, I pursued a career in the natural gas industry. I worked for CenterPoint Energy for 12 years prior to my switch over to the field of Home Inspecting. How this came about was really all in God’s timing and trusting in His greater plan.
I became friends with a man named Wesley Haworth. He was local business owner of Haworth Residential Inspections. One day, Wes asked me “if working with at the gas company was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life”? To be honest, it wasn’t. Although I had a lengthy career and worked for a great company, I felt the need for more in my life and had recently been praying for guidance and direction.
Later that year, I took the leap to become a home inspector, with Wes as my mentor. I was learning from one of the best! In Jan 2018, Wes decided to retire, and I took over the business full time. I take pride in my customer service and attention to detail. I would love to help you navigate through the homebuying or selling process. Please feel free to give me a call if you have any questions!
