Washington Home Inspectors

Kurt Nickelsen, CMI, CPI

As a resident in the Southwest Washington since 1979—specifically Camas, WA for 30 years—I am a witness to the defined quality of living for all who choose to make this area their home. As a home owner since that time, I realize the significance of making an educated decision about real estate, and I bring both the personal and professional knowledge that I have attained in that regard into your home.

Having worked for the City of Washougal for over 18 years, where duties included the inspecting, maintaining and repairing of commercial property and publicly owned buildings, as well as the inspection of playgrounds as a Certified Playground Inspector, it was an easy transition for me when I began to focus on residential inspections in the late 1990’s where I partnered with another local inspector and co-owned and operated Inspection Consulting, Inc. After many years I decided that my vision for SW Washington and NW Oregon consumers demanded something new and exciting, and thus Nickelsen Home Inspections, LLC was established in 2005. In my 11 years as a home inspector, after having performed 8,000+ home inspections, my work as a home inspector has been nothing less than exciting.

Whether I am working for a first time home buyer, or inspecting an investor’s vacation home, my local experience is working for you. Licensed with the Washington State Department of Agriculture and a member of the Washington State Pest Management Association, I have attained the knowledge and expertise necessary to prosper not only as a home inspector, but as the owner of this locally owned and operated inspection firm. The success that I have enjoyed in the last decade is a testimony of your trust, and I sincerely appreciate it!

If you need educated, professional and trustworthy inspection services give me a call and you will be satisfied.

I called to set up an appointment. I got an appointment for the following day. Inspection at noon, 30 page report with pictures that evening. All by email. Kurt Nickelsen gave me an extensive report pointing out areas that needed attention as well as pointing out features of the house I had not noticed. I was very pleased with his efficiency, knowledge, thouroughness, and professionalism. I recommend Nickelsen Home Inspections, LLC to all. He works hard for you.
