J. Wendell Watson

Hello, I’m Joseph Wendell Watson, Professional Inspector, TREC License #22801.

I work for you.

I am a storyteller. It's my job to tell you "the story of the property" so that you can understand and act on the information to make timely, smart decisions.

Do you need an inspection for pests, including wood destroying insects? I am a licensed Commercial Technician (Termite category) TDA #0800772, under the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Structural Pest Control Service, working with J and M Pro Service LLC, TDA TPCL 0759577.    

Does your property have a septic system? I am certified by the National Association of Wastewater Technicians to inspect onsite sewage facilities.

I am a Certified Residential Thermographer. I have been trained in the use of infrared imaging systems to inspect homes and other structures. Thermal images can be useful in detecting things such as insulation voids, concealed moisture and overheating electrical panels.

I promise to provide you clear, concise inspection reports that you can act on.

I worked more than 30 years as a "storyteller" through public relations and marketing, providing customers with critical information to make decisions.  I apply my decades of analytical, storytelling and business experience to ensure that you have critical, understandable information you need to make decisions.

Austin Real Estate Inspection Services, pllc, is a Texas Veteran-Owned company. I served in the U.S. Air Force after graduating from Rice University in Houston. l also worked on the staff at Texas A&M for several years and then earned a Masters degree from the University of Texas at Austin – so blue & gray, burnt orange and maroon all swirl in my blood!

I understand the challenges of permitting, construction and adherence to building codes. I worked on construction crews doing site preparation, concrete and foundations, framing and sheet metal work. I’ve done the hands-on work of renovating my own homes and helped build a few homes for charitable groups.

I look forward to working for you.
