Walter Staheli #HI16459

Florida Home Inspector  

Walt has been two things in his life, a Marine and a builder and he has loved them both.

After studying for his degree in Civil Engineering from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, he joined The Marine Corps.  His love of this country and dedication to its values kept him there for almost 26 years.  After achieving the rank of LtCol, this highly decorated Marine Officer left the active duty ranks to begin his second career as a civilian.

It wasn’t long before he turned to his training as a Civil Engineer and began his life as a builder.  Starting his career in the home building industry, it quickly became apparent he had an affinity for not just the structural aspect of building, but also many systems and components that made up that home. As he did in the Marine Corps, he became a student of his new profession.  He studied how to become a better builder, leading to Certifications from The National Association of Home Builders as a Certified Builder and a Certified Green Professional.  But his experience didn’t stop there.

When homebuilding slowed down, he turned to commercial construction…and again excelled in running major projects.  From retail sites to restaurants, hotels, college buildings, dormitories, and multi-family, he has been assigned to run major projects all over this country, the largest being a $250M hotel and amenity complex in Orlando.

After completing the OSHA-approved 30 Hour Safety training along with training in First Aid and CPR, his career has come full circle, and now has returned to his residential roots in assisting his clients make one of the most important decisions of their financial lives…evaluating their prospective new home.

Give Walt and his small team a call today and allow him to put his years of experience to work for you.
