About Our Company

Meet the Owner

American Eagle Home Inspections, Inc. was founded by owner and InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector® Fred Knowles. When not inspecting homes throughout western Washington state, Fred enjoys discovering new places and travels frequently with his wife.

Fred has been involved in the building industry for fifty years and has been a licensed home inspector since 2000. Throughout his career, he has worked in building maintenance, heavy construction, residential remodels, and new home construction from the ground up. Coming from a construction background, Fred had the skills needed to properly inspect a home, and he knew how important it was to get an accurate inspection. When a friend suggested he’d be an excellent inspector, Fred decided to become licensed and opened the doors to American Eagle Home Inspections nearly 20 years ago.
