Description

Any home, regardless of when it was built, its location, or the materials used to build the home, can expose its residents to radon. Many states require that a home’s radon history be disclosed to potential buyers. As a result, radon testing may play an important role in the real estate transaction process. Real estate agents that are better informed on the potential hazards associated with radon as well as mitigation techniques will be able to better guide their clients through the real estate transaction process.

Course Objectives:
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
•Identify risks associated with long-term radon exposure.
•Describe ways that radon can infiltrate a house.
•Explain testing measures that can be used to identify the presence of radon in a home.
•Describe the benefits of radon mitigation systems.
•Guide their clients through the real estate transaction process with particular sensitivity to radon.

Instructor

Meet your instructor, Greg Clatterbuck. Greg, founder of Clatterbuck Home Inspections, embarked on his journey after earning a physics degree from Longwood University. His academic path was guided more by his desire for activity than by the gravity of choosing a major. Post-graduation, Greg delved into the world of residential structural design at the Roofing and Flooring Trust Company, gaining invaluable insights into the construction of homes. This foundational experience laid the groundwork for his future success as an exceptional inspector.

However, Greg soon found himself seeking more fulfillment and purpose. Despite a stint working with a local inspector, the fire department beckoned to him, echoing his longstanding volunteerism. Opting for a career that demanded action over desk-bound monotony, Greg became a dedicated firefighter and paramedic, a role he’s upheld for two decades. The demanding yet flexible 24-hour shifts afforded him the opportunity to pursue his entrepreneurial aspirations.

Drawing upon his background in physics and structural knowledge, Greg ventured into the realm of home inspection, leveraging his firefighting experiences to hone his ability to thrive under pressure and cultivate strong interpersonal skills. His decision to recruit retired and active firefighters as inspectors proved ingenious, as their inherent traits—punctuality, professionalism, attention to detail, discipline, and effective communication—contributed to the rapid growth of his business.
