Certified Professional Home Inspector
Hi, my name is Jose (Pepe) Diaz. Born in one of the biggest cities of the world, Mexico City and educated at one of the most famous educational institutions of the city, IPN (Instituto Politécnico Nacional). There, I studied the career of Construction Technician.
As a construction vocational student I did a lot of architectural drawings and some artistic; structural calculations; topographical surveys; some graphic design; construction procedures and techniques. I learned the basics of carpentry, plumbing, electricity and iron work. Basics of Interior design. Basics of Architectural design. Basics of Civil Engineering. Planning and administration in construction.
I worked as a specialized drafter at LYTSA (Lumbreras y Túneles, SA) doing drawings for presentations of the subway tunnel work progress in Mexico City. Took photographs at the work site. Visited tunnels under construction to update drawings for presentation to city government officials.
I have been living in El Paso Texas since 1995. I worked for more than eleven years as a foreman at a carpentry shop. I did home repairs and remodels along with building custom furniture and plantation shutters.
I also worked at Charlotte´s Furniture for a total of about 5 years as a customer service technician/furniture refinisher, solving problems with all types of furniture sold by the store. Fixed, restored, modified and refinished antiques to modern furniture. Dealt directly with customers both in English & Spanish regarding furniture issues in their homes or at the store. Advised customers about furniture maintenance and care.
After years of experience and my background, I decided to return, surprisingly, to the career I originally studied in Mexico, but this time as a home inspector. I worked for over a year in the Real Estate field as an Apprentice Home Inspector under the direct supervision of a Professional Home Inspector where we performed over 400 inspections. I received my license as a Professional Home Inspector after finishing all educational, training and field experience by TREC requirements.
I'm aware of the ongoing home inspection competition, but I believe that honesty, moral principles and diligence can set the difference in customer service.
And, I'm here to serve you!
