About Mike Yielding

From there he ventured south to the Gulf Coast where he worked as a carpenter and a journeyman plumber and electrician on various condominium high rises and beach home construction projects. Mike has also had experience in the construction of log homes.

About John Mize

John Mize graduated from the University of South Alabama with a degree in Latin American Studies. After graduation John deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq as member of the U.S Army Special Forces. John was awarded both the Combat Infantry Badge and Bronze Star for his service.

After his military deployments were finished John became a contractor for the DoD in a program with the goal of keeping American soldiers safe from roadside bombs.

During his time as a contractor, John took the opportunity to take an online Home Inspection course through the American Home Inspector Training University.

After completing AHIT John successfully passed the National Home Inspector Exam and the ASHI Standards of Practice exam and was awarded his license as a home inspector in the State of Alabama. John joined Alabama House Whisperer and has performed more than 500 fee paid property inspections over the last couple of years and is now an American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) Certified Inspector (ACI). This is the highest certification classification for ASHI inspectors.

A personal word about John Mize:

“John never ceases to amaze me! At times when we are inspecting together John will casually point a defect out, and then reason the issue out until he comes up with the causality. He is an extremely intelligent, talented and personable guy. I would let him do the inspection on my prospective home without hesitation. When John does come upon something he does not quite understand, he never hesitates to call on me for a second opinion. I endeavor to allow him to reason out the problem on his own-out loud with me asking questions-and nine times out of ten he figures it out for himself. He has been like a sponge, soaking up this old hand’s knowledge. Along with his abilities as a Home Inspector, John Mize is a hero! He has defended his country and flag, placing himself between our safety and security and our country’s enemies. I want all my clients and business contacts to know they should not hesitate to call on John for their inspection needs. Calling on John is like calling on me. We will always do our very best ‘house whispering’ for you in return for your faith in us.”
