About Us

Our mission is to provide property buyers, sellers and owners unbiased, comprehensive technical information regarding property conditions that allow well-informed decisions.


Gary and Kay Sloan founded Discovery Inspections in 1997. Their ambition was to create a home inspection company that could help homebuyers by providing the information needed in order to make a sound buying decision. Along the way, Gary and Kay built a world class team that is dedicated to serving the local home buying community at a very high level. From the ground up, Gary and Kay knew and taught the significance of quality, service, professionalism, and growth to the Discovery team. Wanting more growth opportunities and a bigger future for their team, Gary and Kay decided to partner with Residential Inspector of America (RIA) in 2023.

RIA is family operated but is one of the largest and fastest growing home inspection companies in the country and has completed more than 250,000 home inspections. The Discovery and RIA partnership exists to bring enhanced service, value, and opportunity to homebuyers, real estate agents, and to our team members.
