I attended the University of Kansas and earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Computer Science. After many years in the corporate world, I decided to pursue an opportunity to help people and be in business for myself. I started Crown Home Inspections in 2003. I enjoy helping buyers make sound decisions on the purchase of their new homes. Every day is a new adventure because you never know what you are going to see. In my free time, I enjoy fishing and traveling. I’m a Royals, Chiefs and Kansas Jayhawks fan.

I previously lived in St. Louis and owned my own property inspection business. My family and I made the decision to move to Kansas City so that we could be close to my wife’s parents. As part of the move I sold my St. Louis business and joined the Crown Home Inspection team. This had been a great fit for me. My time away from work is speant with my wife Carrie and my two sons enjoying kayaking, hiking, camping and other adventures. When it comes to sports I love the Baseball Cardinals and the Kansas Ciy Chiefs. Kansas City is a great place to live and raise a family.

I attended Olivet Nazarene University with a Business of Arts in Business and minor in Management.  After an aptitudes test revealed that being a home inspector would be a good fit, I attended ASHI training and became qualified as a home inspector.

 

My wife and I have two children.  When I am not inspecting homes, I’m installing Christmas lights as a small business owner of Midwest Holiday Creations.  I also enjoy shooting, doing puzzles, camping, and being outdoors.

When your brother, John Clason, asks if you can do him a favor– what do you say? You say, yes, especially when it turns into a full time job for the last few years. I love people so this job is a perfect fit. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Human Resources and Communications. After holding a corporate HR job, I decided to stay home with my two girls for a few years. Since then, I have also been a Catering Director, Grant writer, floral designer and accounting assistant.

 

When I am not working, I love to be with family and friends and travel with my husband of more than 30 years.

After 17 years as a stay-at-home mom, I enjoy being in the work force and using my sales and marketing experience to support Crown Home Inspections. I have a double major from the University of Kansas in Communications Studies and French, but don’t ask me to book your inspection in French!

 

My passion is volunteering and I spend most of my free time helping organizations in the Kansas City area including the Junior League, Reach Out and Read, and BVPAGE to name a few. My husband and I are big sports fans – especially the Kansas Jayhawks. We enjoy watching games and hanging out with our three sons.

Tom O’Reilly

SignTraker

A jack-of-all-trades! I earned a BA and MBA from Baker University and worked in the telecom industry for 33 years. I retired from Sprint as a Senior Manager of Engineering and Planning after 25 years and established Advanced Biohazard Cleanup LLC in 2009. My business takes me all over Missouri, Kansas and surrounding states. I enjoy working with SignTraker because it allows me the opportunity to try something new, be outdoors, and help people with their business.

 

Work keeps me busy, but in my spare time, I like to be in the great outdoors, spending time with my family (wife Olivia and 3 children), and collecting first edition antique books.

I am a Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness graduate from Northwest Missouri State University where I played on the Women’s Soccer Team. I have found a perfect fit to further my career at Crown Home Inspections where the company’s foundation is based on teamwork and customer service.

Aside from working I love to be surrounded by family and friends as well as anything that involves the outdoors. My desire is to travel the world and experience as many new places as possible. I love meeting new people and building new relationships which is more than fitting for this job.
