Our Origins

A-Pro® was founded in 1993 by Greg Mangiaracina, an entrepreneur with a background in mass marketing. His personal experience buying a house highlighted the deficiencies in the home inspection process. At that time, the organized home inspection industry was relatively young, and home buyers often relied on friends or family with construction knowledge for advice.

Mangiaracina recognized the need for deliberate technical training, business and marketing expertise, and standardized inspection practice.


By 1994, A-Pro® was up and running, offering:

  • Technical Training: A formal training program for inspectors.
  • Standard of Practice: Detailed guidelines for conducting inspections.
  • Business Support: A startup and operations program.
  • Proprietary Software: A narrative-formatted inspection report to maintain consistent quality.

Innovating for Success

A-Pro® provides a comprehensive package for newly recruited franchisees, enabling them to build a real business backed by a trusted brand. By 2001, A-Pro® had become one of North America’s premier home inspection companies, surpassing competitors that had started a decade earlier. Many of our early franchisees, like Todd Tuvell, continue to thrive within the A-Pro® family. Todd, who began as a home inspector in New Orleans in 1994 and 1997, moved to Wilmington, DE, where he established his own A-Pro® franchise. Today, Todd serves as the Vice President of Franchisee Acquisition.
