Local Couple Bringing The No. 1 Home Inspection Company to Orange County Jay and Claudia Engel

Jay Engel had always wanted to own his own company, and after 25+ years of working in the mortgage industry, he was ready to make the leap. With all of his experience and understanding of how the real estate and home buying process works, Jay is able to be a calming voice of reason, as he helps his clients traverse the jagged landscape of the home buying process. His sense of humor, paired with his informative and detailed home inspection, helps set his clients at ease.

Jay’s goal is to help home buyers make an educated and confident decision about buying a home, providing them with a high-quality, unbiased documentation of the home’s current condition. And, he can wear shorts to work whenever he wants.

In Jay’s free time, he enjoys playing basketball and football with his 9-year-old son.
