About Us

Jake Short, Lead Inspector

Jake Short is not your typical home inspector. Coming from a forensic investigations background, his eyes are trained to see things that others may miss. He moved to Flagstaff about 10 years ago to attend NAU. While in school, he became a family man by getting married and eventually having little ones. Jake got his degree in Chemistry pre-forensics so he could become a Crime Scene Investigator. When he was purchasing his home with his wife, Ashley, he enjoyed investigating the house with his inspector, looking for concerns. He has always enjoyed serving others and this was his way to both investigate and serve the people of Flagstaff.

After getting his credentials for home inspection, Jake met an experienced inspector of 30 years in Flagstaff named Brion. Jake mentored under Brion to really get a feel for Flagstaff and Northern Arizona. After nearly a year of mentoring, Brion trusted Jake enough to sell Jake his home inspection business. 

Here we are some years later, Jake has been using the tips and tricks that he learned from Brion to keep the Northland Inspections legacy alive while bringing technology and gadgets into the business as well. It is our goal to provide a personable experience for our clients. We strive to educate or clients so they can walk away confident that they know more about their prospective home than the current owner does. We can assure all of our clients that they will not be disapointed.
