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 Home 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!

Michael Wicklund, Owner/Senior Inspector

After 17 years as a remodeling contractor, Michael transitioned into the home inspection industry and, in 1999, began inspecting homes throughout the Puget Sound. As an inspector and the owner of the Sterling Inspection Group, Michael has built a strong connection with realtors and homebuyers alike.

Brian Dickes, Licensed Inspector

Joining the Sterling Group, Brian brought a great knowledge of home safety to our home buyers. Drawing on his experience as a retired firefighter, Brian has increased our ability to educate first-time home buyers as well as build a trust with our clients better than ever.

Kevin Wicklund, Licensed Inspector

Home buyers are looking for an advocate to help them make an educated decision. With a construction background that began very young as he worked alongside his father, Kevin was a natural fit for the inspection industry. His efficiency and attention to detail are the perfect traits to help our clients.

Jon LaRose, Licensed Inspector

Jon’s calm, matter-of-fact manner brings a level of comfort to home buyers during a time that can often feel stressful. His easygoing demeanor--as well as his exceptional knowledge and proficiency during the inspection--helps our clients feel confident in the decision-making process.
