My name is Chris Russell and I am the owner and lead inspector at Dragonfly Home Inspections and Building Consultation.  After an extensive architectural and planning education and a career in many aspects of designing, building, planning and managing construction of many shapes, sizes, budgets and types, I decided to use this experience as a home inspector to help others as they were getting ready to buy their homes. It has been a rewarding choice and it is gratifying to help others in such an important way, as there are few decisions as important as a house purchase.

Business Philosophy
While some parts of my business have changed over the years, I have not wavered from the basic premise to work exclusively for my clients in providing them with the best, independent, unbiased home inspection services possible. 

When searching for a home inspection, you should recognize that many competitors are parts of larger national chains and franchises. I have found that bigger is definitely not better when it comes to home inspections. I am a private, independent, small business serving the Chapel Hill, Durham, Cary, Apex, Mebane and greater Triangle community and have no plans to become a franchise with increased volume, decreased quality and decreased customer support.

Up To Date Home Inspection Training
Ongoing annual training, education and certifications are a key part of my business to keep on top of the latest construction trends and techniques to ensure I remain up to date and well prepared for your home inspection.  I keep abreast of home inspection updates as well as annual radon test training and certifications.
An Inspection Service You Can Refer Your Family To
Much of my competition focuses on a one-time home inspection, whereas I recognized long ago that people do not tend to stay in their homes as long as they used to and therefore offering great services each time ensures future returning clients. In fact, I have had the opportunity to work with many clients on multiple occasions for their future home purchases and I am gratified to have extended these services by referrals to their family and friends. My best and favorite referrals are by word of mouth from those I have had the opportunity to work with.

Customer Reviews
It takes a bit longer to conduct thorough inspections and offer great customer service, but I believe it to be well worth it. Don’t just take my word for it, listen to what my clients have to say:

  •   Pittsboro - “Chris did a home inspection on a property that we are planning to buy. He is extremely thorough in his work and takes time to explain in details the issues he comes across. He is very professional and knowledgeable and gives honest opinion when needed. His input helped us make our decisions quickly and easily. I definitely recommend him without reservation and would use him in future if I ever needed a home inspection!!!”

  •  Cary - “I worked with Chris for my pre-drywall and final home inspections for my new home. He was extremely thorough in both and was extremely patient in explaining us everything that has been done right and everything that needed fixing. He was able to explain the minutest of details in simple layman's terms and it really helped us understand everything we needed to know about our home in great detail. We never felt rushed at any point during the inspections and Chris made sure that more than sufficient time was given for the job. He is very nice and easy to talk to and put us at ease about any concerns we may have had. I'm very happy to be writing this review for him and am glad that I worked with him for my home inspection.”

  • Apex – “Chris performed an inspection on my home. He was recommended to me by a good friend of mine. He is very knowledgeable and professional. Chris is great about following up with you afterwards for questions after he leaves. I would recommend Chris to everyone.”

  • Chapel Hill – “Chris did home inspection twice for us - one time for our investment townhome and the other time for our primary single family house. Both times, Chris did extremely thorough inspections on our homes. He explained to us what he found in great detail and has always been nice and patient answering questions we had - a lot of them were silly! Most importantly, Chris is honest and trustworthy. He provided us his honest opinions, which helped us to make the best decision. We completely trust him as a person and trust his input as a home inspector. “
