Timothy Wojnar, CPI, PE

Certified Professional Inspector (InterNACHI)
Licensed Professional Engineer

Tim founded Home Inspection Geeks in 2016.  After working as a mechanical engineer in the power and gas industries for 8 plus years to start his professional life, Tim desired a new career where he could make more of a direct impact for the client.  He always had a fascination with home design and construction and decided to get his Home Inspection License to feed into that passion. Tim started Home Inspection Geeks with the belief that he could make the inspection process better for his clients and that a safe and reliable home is an essential foundation for adults and children alike to live their best lives.  Along with his Inspection License, he also holds a Profession Engineering License and is certified by InterNACHI. Tim lives with his wife (Dawn) and two boys (Jake and Chase) in the Logan Square Area of Chicago. He is a passionate Cubs fan and sports fan in general. Tim also enjoys being out in nature, doing handyman projects around his home, and listening to audiobooks whenever he gets the opportunity.

Certified Professional Inspector (InterNACHI)

“Born and raised in Chicago I grew up the youngest of 3. Love family, friends, listening, and making people laugh. I strive to be genuine and kind to everyone I meet; “A smile goes a long way when someone’s having a hard day”….hey, that would actually make a good bumper sticker :thinking_face:

I’ve always been fascinated with learning how things work, have an eye for detail, and have 13+ years of experience as an Independent Contractor. I’ve taken that knowledge and focused it on helping potential home buyers prepare for what may be the largest single investment in their lives.
The great thing about Home Inspection Geeks is that our service doesn’t end when your inspection is completed. You become part of the HI Geek family and we are here to help answer any questions that can and will arise with your new title of Home Owner.
Remember, being a Geek is a good thing! “:nerd_face:

These activities not only provide relaxation and enjoyment but also strengthen the bonds with my loved ones.

Overall, I find joy in creating positive experiences both in my professional and personal life.”
