Travis Minshall

Certified Professional Inspector

Years of experience: 20+ years in skilled trades, general contracting, and inspections.

Travis coming on board is a dream come true for us. Travis and Roy worked together several years ago in the remodeling industry, and more recently building Travis' new home. Travis is a wealth of knowledge who can (and has) built homes from the ground up, and is a jedi master ninja guru when tackling just about any other residential construction/ renovation/ remodeling project you can think of. Fortunately for you, he has decided that the best way he can use this knowledge to serve our community is by joining Vigilant as an InterNACHI Certified Professional Home Inspector.

Travis lives in Cedar Rapids with his better half, Nikki, & their beautiful daughters, Brooklyn & Quinn


Drew Hoppenworth

Certified Professional Inspector

From a very early age, Drew learned construction skills from his Dad (remodeling, carpentry, etc.), and they renovated several homes together. Prior to becoming a Certified Professional Home Inspector and joining Vigilant, Drew was an expert trouble shooter (managing a team of 5 other professionals for a number of years) in the tech field. The same passion for finding the root cause of a given symptom that made him a rockstar in that field has made him a rockstar home inspector. Truly a top notch building consultant.

Drew lives in Marion, Iowa with his wife, Meghan & their kids, Henry and Charlotte.
