In our 31 years in business, we have grown and cultivated a skillful team of inspectors, living and working throughout CT and bordering counties of Rhode Island and New York. I would like to introduce you to the Tiger Group Team. We have inspectors to assist you in your local area or with particular property specialties. Individually, our inspectors are the core of our company; together they further strengthen our service level through working together on multi-inspector luxury properties and commercial buildings as well as providing an in-house network, sharing expertise with one other.
Most often I am involved in business operations, but I still enjoy being in the field for inspections; I have had a life-long love for buildings and new construction that started with my construction experience and degree in Construction Management. Based on my field experiences, I have developed our ongoing inspector training program, one of the valuable strengths of a multi-inspector organization. We all continue to benefit from our combined expertise.

Our Fairfield County Manager, George Turner is one of our most requested inspectors, often complimented for his patience with clients, helping first-time buyers, and experience inspecting luxury properties. He is also a HUD Consultant, assisting clients in navigating the 203k Renovation Loan process.
Are you a fan of This Old House? Alan Williams has inspected more antique homes than most inspectors have done any kind of home inspections, serving Eastern CT and RI. Keith Powell also has a passion for historical preservation. He just finished building his own new construction home and also works with our Commercial Team, so we’d call him very well-rounded. And Tiger has Antique Home Specialists in every county.
Piete Velsor was fortunate to have gone through our training program with antique home extraordinaire David Townsend, adding a skill for inspecting vintage homes to his construction knowledge. He has inspected hundreds of Connecticut shoreline waterfront properties and enjoys all the curious things we find as inspectors.
