Meet Jesse Weaver

Jesse grew up in Auburn, WA and started in construction as a teenager in the late 1990s working for his family's remodeling company in West Seattle.  In 2011 Jesse decided to enroll at AHIT to become a licensed home inspector.  Shortly after graduating, he launched Northwest Home Inspector.

Jesse has since worked hard at growing his business and earning the trust of his neighbors while becoming seasoned in the industry.  In 2019 Jesse met Gregory Schwartz while training recent inspector school graduates.  They hit it off immediately so Jesse and Greg decided to team up to share the workload.  This move has even further compounded the success of Northwest Home Inspector as Gregory offers unique insights and he genuinely cares deeply for his clients. Jesse comes from a lineage of home inspectors with his mom & step-dad running School of Professional Home Inspectors in Burien and his cousin running Abode Analysis in Sammamish.

His passion for inspecting is only eclipsed by his love for his two cherished daughters and the devotion to his adored sweetheart, Heather.  For fun Jesse enjoys being creative with his girls, art, playing the drums, snowboarding, paintballing, cars, super dork-level PC gaming and snuggling with his 3 legged Bengal cat, Thelma.

Meet Gregory Schwartz

Greg’s current life is a far cry from what it was while growing up in London and Spain (Greg is fluent in Spanish). His university sent him to St. Louis to complete his business degree.  After emigrating to the US, he realized a desk job wasn’t his cup of tea, so he picked up an odd job on a construction site and the rest is history. He continued working under general contractors, honing his skills and mastering tile work, until he decided to venture out on his own. He had a successful career for several years as a General Contractor, focusing on residential remodels.

Eventually his wife suggested that he make the switch to home inspection. And, she was right – it fit perfectly with his knack for troubleshooting and attention to detail (Greg still holds the record for highest final exam score ever recorded at his inspector training institute).  Over the past few years, not only did Greg’s career change, but his lifestyle did a complete 180 as well. He and his adored wife moved to the country, in Montesano and started raising animals. He also joined the local fire department as a volunteer firefighter, and recently became a certified EMT. In his limited free time, you can find him working on projects around the farm or re-reading his favorite historical biographies while snuggling with his former barn cat, Charlotte.

"Northwest Home Inspector found two invisible roof leaks in the 2nd floor ceilings using an infrared camera which prompted a roof inspection, which prompted a new roof recommendation which the sellers graciously paid for."
—Matt J.


"Jesse was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. I especially liked the infrared camera as it provided very valuable information in just seconds."


"Jesse uses the latest and greatest technology to ensure you're well taken care of. He's very friendly, will tell it to you straight, and will work with you as your ally, rather than a one-and-done report generator. This is how business should be done."
—Joe H.


"We had a new construction home inspection with Jesse.  His infrared equipment helped us identified missing insulation portion of the house. He also coordinated pictures with each issue to help our builder addressed the issues accordingly. Overall, Jesse was excellent. We're planning to ask him back before our one year warranty!"
—Daranee R.


"This will be our fourth home we’ve bought in three states and by FAR Jesse is the absolute best inspector! He was quick in delivering the report and it was extremely thorough! If Google had 10 stars I’d give them all to Jesse."
—Luane R.


"Jesse carried a significant number of tools (drones, infrared cameras, outlet testers, lead testers) and discovered many issues that were overlooked by a previous inspection. He's friendly, thorough, and practical. Would highly recommend."
—Nick E.
