I’m Don Lawrence, the proud owner of ThoroCheck Home Inspections. I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

When I was twelve years old, being easily impressed, I asked a lady who owned a hardware store how she got so wealthy. Her answer was simple, and it stuck with me. She said, “you must find a need and fill it. And when you do, you must always put service and quality first. The money will show up”.

After a career in the remodeling business that lasted forty years and experience dealing with incompetent contractors and homeowners that don’t care, I decided to venture into home inspections. In 2017, remembering what the lady who owned the hardware store had told me and realizing I had found my true calling, I started ThoroCheck Home Inspections and have never looked back.

In the four years, I have been full-time into home inspections, the industry has advanced and gradually become considerably more beneficial for my clients. For example, it is now much easier to provide quality services with clear reports displaying pictures, video content, and more, all with a much faster response time.

The part of my business I find most rewarding is the recognition and appreciation I receive from my clients. I am thankful for the reviews my business gets and proud to play a part in the on-point decisions my customers tend to make when buying or selling a home. As they say in the military, “we got your six” when it comes to home inspections. 

As an individual, I believe what sets me apart from the others is my commitment to always conducting myself based on integrity, honesty, and the morals I was taught by my parents. I believe in putting service and quality first, even if it initially hurts.

I attribute my success to hard work, the dedication of my team, the support of realtors, and most of all, the loyalty and faith my customers have shown. Being always available and ready to pounce into action has helped my business grow and blossom.

Taking an idea, a vision that was once in my mind’s eye, and watching it become a reality has been a truly life-changing experience that has given me immense satisfaction over the years and is a testament to my never-say-die attitude.

When I am not at work, I enjoy many different activities and hobbies. I like spending time with family and friends, play guitar in a worship band, working on my twenty-six-acre farm, and spending time in my home gym.

I also believe in giving back to society and, as part of that belief, do a lot of mentoring for young businesses and start-ups. 

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
