About First Choice Property Inspections
Ed Martino—Certified Master Inspector (CMI)®
Ed Martino is the owner and inspector of First Choice Property Inspections, LLC. For most of us, the reality of buying a home can be hard to swallow—because even when you think you’ve tread carefully, there’s always that voice in the back of your head wondering if you’re making the right decision. When Ed inspects a home, he strives to lessen those doubts, helping his clients gain confidence by bringing the home’s present state into sharper focus.
For This Home Inspector, It’s All Been Worth It
Ed’s extensive background in construction is what set him up for success in the inspection industry, providing him with the exceptional level of knowledge required to earn distinction as a Certified Master Inspector (CMI)®. Ed has worked with contractors, county officials, real estate agents, and countless satisfied customers for over 40 years—and it’s all been worth it. Without that experience, Ed wouldn’t be able to do the job he loves today, helping people learn all about the quality of a home’s construction so that they can make a responsible investment decision.
A Personal Concern for Every Client
- For your safety and financial protection, Ed uses specialized tools during an inspection whenever necessary—including a moisture meter, gas leak detector, and carbon monoxide detector
- Ed encourages his clients to be on-site the day of the home inspection, allowing you to play the part of the active observer so that you can see potential defects for yourself and ask any questions that come up
- After the inspection is over, you’ll be able to call Ed at any time during the days and months ahead to ask additional questions and to seek advice about the home’s repair and maintenance needs
When he’s not inspecting homes, Ed spends the majority of his time enjoying the company of his wonderful family. Some of Ed’s hobbies include snow skiing, amateur radio work, and volunteering in the community. Ed mentors home inspectors in the field and teaches at the Home Inspector Institute in Voorhees, NJ.
