Tim Fortunato

Year Licensed:2013


Personal Information: 2 Children


Interests: Camping and travel


Tim Fortunato moved to the Valley of the Sun from Philadelphia in 2000 anxious to start a life in the fair weather. As Tim was exposed to the Valley’s booming housing market, he took his fondness of people and his love of houses and fit right in as a certified residential appraiser. After operating a successful appraisal office, Tim took that passion for homes and their efficiency to the HVAC market where he learned the intricacies of residential cooling and airflow as a technician. He learned the importance of whole home comfort as a Building Performance Institute Certified Home Energy Auditor for SRP and APS. Still nurturing his desire to help home buyers make informed decisions, he obtained his home inspector license. The best part of inspecting a home as opposed to appraising a home is that the inspection is based on discovered fact, not opinion. Tim enthusiastically continues to educate and assist buyers on their biggest financial investment.

Personal Information: 

Interests: 

  

    I moved to America from England in the late 70's ending up in Arizona in 1980. In 1983 my family moved to Chandler and it has been in my life ever since. Graduated Chandler High Class of 92' (Go Wolves!!). I have seen the valley and more specifically Chandler boom over the last 30+ years and it still amazes me how spread out the valley is. I started home inspections in Oct of 2001 coming from the air conditioning industry. Most of my home inspection career was spent with Tom Sanders and Assure Home Inspection. I now have the opportunity to be with a company and be more independent and look forward to it. I live in Chandler with my wife and kids (oldest has graduated Chandler High and the youngest is on her way....again Go Wolves!!). If you see me around Chandler stop and say hi.

Arvin Beckler

Year Licensed:2017

Personal Information: Married with 3 children

Arvin grew up doing construction and remodeling with my father from the time could swing a hammer. He spent years learning everything I could about home construction, from framing to finish carpentry. In his early thirties he went to University and got a Bachler’s Degree in Computer Information Systems. He then spent the next 22 year working as a computer programmer and IT Manager. After weathering numerous Corporate take overs and buyout by investment groups Arvin grew tired of the corporate world and started to look for something that he could enjoy doing again. After some research and a suggestion from a friend, a realtor, he soon realized Home Inspections were a great opportunity.  Arvin now enjoys helping people evaluate the home they have chosen to purchase and showing them the workings and systems of their home.
