Brent is our outside field inspector. Brent does the ongoing “short” inspections during the year on all our properties each year including the special “pet inspections”. The purpose of these inspections is to be sure the house keeping is up to par, that damages are not being done to the property, that unauthorized pets haven’t been brought in and more. We do a personal move-in with the tenants. Brent meets the tenants at the property to give them the key, go over the move-in inspection report; shows them how to turn the water off in case of emergency; where the GFI’s are; where the return vents are – reminding them to change the filters monthly and more. Brent also handles the initial inspections on all new accounts and the “move-out” inspections which take him anywhere from 1 to 4 hours to complete and takes hundreds of photographs of the property to document its overall condition and specific items that need to be repaired, replaced or updated. In 2018 Brent relocated to Las Vegas from Orange County and has worked in this field since February of 2013. His email is Inspector@AvalonOaktree.com

Israel also conducts the move-out inspection reports which take him anywhere from 1 to 4 hours to complete and takes hundreds of photographs of the property to document its overall condition and specific items that need to be repaired, replaced or updated.
