Our Team

Our Team

The Sterling Inspection Group was founded in 1999 in Puyallup, WA by owner and senior inspector Michael Wicklund. Since that time, Michael has developed a loyal following of real estate professionals who have come to expect nothing but the best from Sterling. We create a home inspection experience like no other, and expect only the best from our team members. This expectation of excellence has spread to clients across the Puget Sound who continue to refer their friends our way.

While Sterling Inspection Group remains constant in its ability to provide outstanding service, we also see the growing need for change as we expand our reach to the public. In 2012, we began this expansion and we will continue adding superior inspectors to our team as we strive to exceed the expectations of our agents and clients across the beautiful Puget Sound. You can always expect the best from the Sterling Inspection Group, Inc.  Contact Us TODAY at 253-841-1128 to schedule your appointment!

Matt Shirer, Licensed Inspector

After spending several years working with rental and investment properties, Matt decided to bring his quality-control and customer-first mentality into the field of home inspection. In fact, it is the desire to provide clients with the details they need to make sound, informed decisions that motivates Matt to do the best job he can with every home he inspects. He is a true professional, who not only likes people, but is determined to serve them well.

Adam Walker, Licensed Inspector

Adam attributes his people skills (and familiarity with what goes into the guts of a home) to more than a dozen years of retail management in the hardware store industry. But don’t let Adam’s easy-going nature fool you. When it comes to home inspections he’ll do what it takes to get into the areas of a home most people never see to make sure Sterling’s clients are informed and comfortable with their purchasing decisions.
