Commercial Real Estate Inspectors, LLC was founded by two men with a solutions-oriented approach to commercial property inspections, Bob Pace and Ron Litchfield. In his late teens, Bob developed an interest in the construction field and launched his career as a General Contractor doing carpentry, large remodeling projects, and new home construction.
Bob eventually formed a successful home inspection company with a friend, which conducted 175 – 200 inspections every week and became the largest company of its kind in the United States. Roughly 10 years ago, he shifted his career to focus on commercial inspections. He says, “I’m the kind of guy who reads building code books for fun and has a great memory for details relating to construction - and I really love doing it.”
Ron is the co-founder of Commercial Real Estate Inspectors, LLC. A business owner in one way or another for 43 years, Ron was dedicated to ensuring all of his clients’ needs were met with the best possible service. He founded Commercial Real Estate Inspectors, LLC in 2006 with friend and business partner Bob Pace, and remained dedicated to his clients and team for nearly 15 years.
Ron's extensive knowledge of building and managing businesses from the ground up provided a foundation of success for the company which has continued to grow year over year. Ron passed away in June of 2020. He is sorely missed, and his legacy appreciated, as we move forward without his leadership.
Bob brings an invaluable level of experience in building inspections to Commercial Real Estate Inspectors, LLC. He has been certified as an inspector by the California Real Estate Inspection Association (CREIA) since 1994, and has personally conducted more than 5,000 successful inspections in the last 18 years. Since 2006, Commercial Real Estate Inspectors, LLC has completed thousands of commercial inspections for its customers.
In addition to his experience in the field, he has personally trained 24 inspectors, including every inspector at LaRocca Inspections.
Ron and Bob’s vast experience culminated in the formation of our unique RISK Assessment® report, which gives customers a comprehensive picture of each property’s current condition and industry-standard solutions for any problems we find.
