Often times the inspection companies are owned by a very qualified, experienced inspector, but that person is NOT who actually does the inspection. They may even use multiple inspectors in a single house so to divide the responsibilities. Trade Secrets Inspections are all performed by Rick Kooyman personally. Rick is a three decade plus residential contractor with thousands of new builds and remodels, of every size and budget. Rick has been not only inspecting but studying homes, their systems, and how they age for many years and thousands of properties. (NEW TEXT TO ADD) We are affiliated with the Florida Association of Building Inspectors (FABI), and International Association of Certified Home Inspectors. Having been trained through both, staying on top of industry standards and continuing education remains a priority.

Rick Kooyman is also an accomplished commercial pilot and retired flight instructor with several ratings.
