Hello, my name is Travis vonRentzell. Tracker Home Inspections is a dream that has come together for this born & raised Nebraskan. A little bit of information about the name “Tracker”. I always wonder what the story is behind the name of a business that isn’t part of the owners’ name. Tracker is part of this owners name but you wouldn’t know that if I didn’t fill you in a little bit about ME. My name is Travis and my 1st born who is an angel of SIDS but always my right hand man is Tucker. That is how I got my business name. A true dream comes true, with a little nudge from an angel above.
First things first a little bit about me, I come from a small town of Ashland, which sits between Lincoln and Omaha. Many would say I was born with a “hammer in my hand”. When it comes to any construction or re-vitalize project: “I have an idea”, “I’ve seen it, I’ve heard about it, or I have done it”. Of course I attended school for construction and worked for construction businesses. Over the years I have been involved in building homes for myself, family, and friends; renovation projects every chance I got, handy man projects, and Construction project management. As a child if it could be built, I could build it!
At the age of 19 I bought my first house. Some would call it a real “GEM”. The realtor met me to show me the house with a little concern on his face: first at my age, second at my attire. I showed up with tools in hand ready to crawl around every nook and cranny. When I got done I explained to the realtor where my concerns were and what I thought was great about the property. Now mind you this house cost me less than what an economy car retails these days. The realtor was even more shocked when I said “let’s make a deal”. Needless to say that house was a great adventure, and taught me so many things I couldn’t have learned in any class or book. It really was a true “GEM”.
Of course over the years I have grown with the society and the efficiencies in today’s building materials, but good never goes bad! Every house out there is a “home” for someone and a part of their character.
As a home inspector I am not looking to tell you all the “wrongs” with the property your selling, purchasing, or the place you call “home”; I am here to tell you how to provide for your “home” to keep it in touch with your character! Keeping it safe and friendly you might say.
I could continue about all the classes I’ve attended and been a part of, to become a home inspector but for one you can find all of that within this website and two that don’t really explain who I am. My real life experience of myself explains my opening sentence of Tracker Home Inspection: “a dream that has come together for ME” Travis vonRentzell.
