About RIC Home Inspections

A native of Greenville, Tommy Donovan feels fortunate to have had the opportunity to see his home town mature into what it is today. He took over the reins of RIC Home Inspection back in 2003 ending his stint as a home improvement sales representative for a locally owned home remodeling company. In fact, it was during the restoring process of his first home, a 1914 Arts and Crafts bungalow near downtown Greenville, that Tommy developed his appreciation for houses and all of the components that make them tick. “It was an adventure! I quickly learned what it means to be a homeowner who fully understands what it takes to maintain a home. It was through this process that I acquired most of my hands-on experience of home repairs.”Tommy also credits his background in Journalism as a contributing factor in how he sets himself apart from your average home inspector. After graduating from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, Tommy spent several years working in the news departments for WYFF-TV and WORD Radio right here in the Greenville area. “Surprisingly enough, home inspection and news reporting have very much in common with each other. Both disciplines require an ability to collect a large amount of data quickly and accurately while transforming this information into a report that communicates complex issues in a clear and concise manner to your clients. This all has to be done while being able to back up suggestions with facts from reliable and trusted resources. It is this type of communication skill that does not come easily for folks with a contractor-only background.”Tommy is currently a Certified Inspector with the American Society of Home Inspectors and is also actively involved with the South Carolina Association of Home Inspectors: whose efforts are geared toward raising home inspection standards across the state. Tommy believes this type of involvement is critical to passing on a good experience for his clients. “What most people don’t realize is that there are no requirements on the books that mandate things like continuous education or national certification for home inspectors in South Carolina. It’s these types of programs that can insure the overall professionalism of our industry.” Tommy’s biggest thrill as a home inspector is helping his clients ease the hectic process of carrying through with one of the biggest investment of their lives. “I feel that the real estate agents do a fabulous job of introducing a buyer to their new home, but it’s the inspector who has the privilege of helping the buyer get to know their new home on a more personal level. With this type of knowledge, homeowners have an easier time of understanding how this new home fits into the needs of their family.” A family man himself, Tommy enjoys the companionship of his supportive wife and 3 wonderful children. His family is devoutly Catholic and is actively involved at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in downtown Greenville. Also in his spare time Tommy can be heard volunteering periodically on the airwaves at Catholic Radio WCKI 1300AM.
