Roy Newcomer, along with his son Scott and his wife Virginia, founded Newcomer’s Home Inspection Service in 1989. Their home inspection service grew to be one of the largest home inspection firms in North America, performing over 25,000 home inspections. With 14 inspectors on staff, the need for professional training was essential. In 1993 seeing a need for more properly trained home inspectors, Roy and Scott started the American Home Inspectors Training Institute (AHIT) in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
In 1995 Scott Newcomer started Newcomer’s of America Property Inspection Service, a national home inspection franchise. After a few years, Scott decided to restructure the franchisees into independent home inspection firms and partner with Roy to expand AHIT. In 1999 Mark Newcomer joined the family business to lead the financial, regulatory and compliance areas of the company. In 2003 Randy Orth joined the company as the Chief Operating Officer to lead the company’s national expansion. Randy’s extensive operational and training experience, combined with his start-up business experience, keeps AHIT focused on the needs of our students as they develop their inspection businesses. AHIT continues to strengthen its support to its students and inspectors with over 30 highly experienced and successful trainers to assist you in getting into the business and growing your home inspection company.
