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

Years of experience: over 20 years of work experience relevant to performing home inspections, and over 3 years experience as a certified professional home inspector, Radon Measurement specialist, and Wood Destroying Pest Inspector.

Prior to becoming a home inspector, Greg spent much of his career in food processing plant management - work that requires attention to detail and adherence to strict guidelines and procedures, with the health and safety of the public and his direct reports dependent on mastery level knowledge and execution. Greg's great communication skills also served him well in that career. Greg absorbs knowledge like a sponge, and also worked in construction for several years. Our inspectors collaborate a lot to provide our clients witb the best information, and although he has less hands on construction experience than some of our other inspectors, Greg is often the first to respond when one of us is looking for input on a fresh peculiarity. He either has the answer or will find it, with expediency. Greg is an awesome inspector and a fantastic member of our team.
