About the Inspector
ASHI and InterNACHI Home Inspector
Elliott Fried is the owner and lead home inspector of Lake Ridge Home Inspections, LLC. Although the state of Georgia has no licensing requirements for home inspectors, Elliott takes his responsibility to his clients seriously and maintains membership in both the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). Through these highly respected organizations, he has access to the industry’s best training resources and educational materials so that he can offer the best service possible to home buyers, sellers, and owners. Additionally, Elliott has been certified through American Home Inspectors Training (AHIT). During his time off from work, he enjoys bike riding and spending quality time with his wife and their two dogs.
An Inspector Who Knows How a Home Works
Before becoming a certified home inspector, Elliott worked for many years in both the residential and commercial fire and water damage restoration business. It was this experience that taught him just how much he loved detail-oriented work and left him with a solid understanding of how the systems and components of a home are supposed to work properly. Wanting to do more of this type of work, Elliott decided that a career as a home inspector would be the perfect fit for him. Personable in nature, he enjoys getting to work closely with his clients as he figures out the details of a home and helps them better understand their own investments.
Reserve Firefighter Background
Elliott has been a member of the County Volunteer Reserve Firefighter Program for the past 12 years. Through his volunteering, he provides rehab support on-scene to firefighters along with carrying out many other support functions. These include offering Amateur radio communications and bike medical support for public events, teaching Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training classes, and teaching Stop the Bleed classes to his community. He loves helping and educating people, which is exactly what makes him such a great home inspector, especially for first-time buyers who want to learn more about homeownership.
