About Us

Matt Smoak- Owner/ Inspector

Home Inspector/ Pawleys Island, SC/ Family

I want to first thank you for choosing Island Inspections- LLC! 

My name is Matt, I have spent the last 20 years working in public safety, from paramedic to law enforcement. I know what it means to provide protection and ensure safety. I have been married to Jen for 18 years and we have three kids. Maintaining the desire to serve and protect, I became a SC Certified Home Inspector. I want to make sure the house you're purchasing is safe for you and your family to live in. 

Purchasing a home is probably the largest investment you will make and Island Inspections- LLC wants to make certain you KNOW what you're buying. It’s easy to get emotionally attached to a home. When you couple your joy with a thorough and complete inspection, you can rest assured that your investment is a good one. I will go through the house in a strategic and detailed manner. I provide a computer- generated report that is easy to read and understand. I utilize digital photographs to illustrate any areas of concern. So on closing day, you know you‘re making the best, sound decision in your investment.

Having gone through the home buying process myself with a family of 5, I know how important it is for the client to understand what’s going on every step of the way. Clients are welcomed and encouraged to accompany me on the day of the inspection. Upon completion of my inspection, you will be provided a well written, detailed report full of pictures of potential issues and defects.

 I adhere to the South Carolina Standards of Practice (SOP) and InterNACHI’s (SOP). Both scopes can be downloaded below.
