Meet Our Team


Our Inspectors

Our team of Charlotte Home Inspectors is top-notch. Every inspector we hire fits a specific personality profile that is thorough, detail oriented, patient, and smart. After our inspectors take the state required training of 200 hours and pass the certification exam, we train them to meet our strict Starmark Home Inspections standards. On top of the state required training, our inspectors train for an additional 480 hours in the office, learning our systems and expectations. After that, they shadow our owner and lead inspector, John Hill, for at least 200 inspections before going out on their own. We want you to know you’re getting the best possible information on your home.

John Hill

John Hill

Owner and Lead Inspector

For 15 years John was a practicing civil engineer in NC with a PE designation. He was a project manager for several skyscrapers, a bus terminal and fire station in Charlotte, outfitted a wing at the Charlotte airport. In his spare time, he also remodeled and repaired homes in the Charlotte area.

John has been a home inspector for more than 20 years. His engineering training, practices and my personality, led him to establish a reputation as a very detailed, thorough, patient, and honest home inspector. His goal in establishing and expanding Starmark Home Inspections is to provide homeowners with the best value in Charlotte Metro Area home inspections.

“John and his team were detailed, thorough and well versed. Easy to work with and they had all the tools and equipment needed to do a one and done visit. Their work will help us in deciding on buying a home or not.”

Derek Berger

Derek Berger

Inspector, New Home Specialist

After many years of problem solving in the IT world, Derek decided to apply his skills in the Home Inspection Industry. His attention to detail and focus make for a great inspector, while his patience and knowledge make for a great report. He is great at thoroughly examining every area of a home and clearly explaining his findings. He graduated from the top Home Inspector Licensing School in North Carolina and meticulously studied under John. You’re in great hands with Derek!

“We purchased a new-build and assumed it would be in almost perfect condition; Starmark proved otherwise! They were able to provide an extremely comprehensive review that, once we work with the builder to rectify Starmark’s findings, will ultimately give us peace of mind on our home purchase. Would definitely recommend.”

“The home inspector Derek did an excellent job! We had him to inspect a new home we were building. He found things that would have been missed.”
