Kurt Stein, founder of HouseScan Inspections, earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Engineering from Penn State University. His knack for problem solving led him to Northeast Florida to pursue a career in engineering and operations working for several large manufacturers.

After purchasing several homes in Northeast Florida, Kurt’s exposure and interest in real estate expanded, and he soon recognized a significant opportunity for improvement in the historically monotonous and unchanged home inspection industry that could benefit home buyers and realtors alike. In 2017, with a slew of improvements in mind, HouseScan Inspections was born, and Kurt has never looked back. In just a few short years, Kurt has grown HouseScan to become one of the largest and highest-rated inspection companies in Northeast Florida. Every day he looks to improve his team, systems, and processes to continue bringing the “ultimate home inspection experience” to more customers in Northeast Florida.

When Kurt isn’t busy inspecting homes and working with his team, you’ll find him on the basketball court, organizing charity Spikeball tournaments, spending time with his wife, Stephanie, and Australian Sheppard, Emma. Kurt’s other passions include traveling, art, personal finance & investing, property renovations, problem solving, and business building.

As the Office Manager, Jillian is the voice behind the phone that so many of our wonderful customers have had the pleasure of speaking with each day.

Anybody that’s met Jillian knows the professionalism, unmatched customer service, and problem solving capabilities that she brings to the table.

Jillian was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL and grew up around construction and business with her Father as a marine contractor and her Mother as a retail store manager. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of North Florida and brings an incredible amount of relevant experience to her role.  She has a combined 12 years of experience in Office Management, working for an Electrical Contractor, a Plumbing Contractor, a Window Covering company, multiple Real Estate teams, and even vacation rentals.

When Jillian isn’t helping make the home inspection process enjoyable and painless for clients she enjoys expressing herself creatively by painting, sewing, and cooking. In her downtime, Jillian is usually reading, working 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzles, and spending time with her husband and two dogs outdoors.

Devin has always had two great passions; the outdoors and construction.  Growing up in coastal Florida with a General Contractor as a Dad provided plenty of opportunities for both.

After graduating from Georgia Southern University with a B.S. in Natural & Cultural Resource Management, Devin completed an internship with the Bureau of Land Management in California. Devin then moved to South Carolina to take on a Leadership Role with a college ministry for 5 years. He then returned to Florida and began work as a biologist for an aquatic management company.  Finally, as a home inspector Devin is able to combine his background and passions to provide unmatched service, promising each client the highest level of integrity, diligence, and expertise.  He is driven to exceed expectations and help individuals make the most informed decisions possible. With this background and mindset and consistently inspecting over 40 homes per month, Devin has solidified himself as one of the best and most thorough inspectors in Jacksonville and has since been promoted to field manager and is responsible for training of our newest inspectors.

Devin is a man of Faith, a Husband, and a Father. When he is not found on the water surfing or fishing, look for him playing volleyball on the beach, working on his house or spending time with family, friends and his pup Trident.
