Spectora Spotlight with Kevin Wagstaff

What nurses, restaurants, and photo booths have to do with home inspections - Allen Dicharry

July 29, 2020

Allen is wise beyond his home inspection years. My guess is it has something to do with his previous careers in nursing, ministry, home flipping and owning a photo booth rental service.


This was such a fun and refreshing conversation. Allen is only in year 2 of his home inspection career, but he is off to an amazing start. 100 Google Reviews. A thriving agent referral network. A healthy work-life balance.


We can all learn from Allen's blend of focus, humility and dedication to his clients and learning. He dropped so many tidbits of wisdom that has me excited to share this episode.


Here are most of the books we referenced, some of which I've read and highly recommend!
