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 or pickleball court, organizing charity Spikeball or Poker tournaments, and spending time with his beautiful wife and Australian Sheppard, Emma. Kurt’s other passions include traveling, art, personal finance & investing, property renovations, problem solving, and business building.

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.
