Jeff Tillery
QHC Inspector

Hello my name is Jeff Tillery, I am married to my wonderful wife Sheena and we have three beautiful children, Garrett, Grace and Griffin. After earning a degree is turf management and spending over 20 years in the golf course industry I began searching for a new direction in my career. My interest in home inspections began during several construction jobs I was involved in during my time as a golf course manager and during construction of my own homes. I was fascinated in how a home and all of it’s components performed and that remains the same today. I have been a licensed home inspector for 3 years now and have completed several hundred inspections. Over the years, there has been one thing missing from my business and that is not having a team behind me to share my thoughts and learn new things about the home inspection industry with. Quality Home Consultants provides the supportive, engaging environment I have been missing and I am thrilled to be part of their team. I look forward to working with you in the future.
