With over 20 years of construction experience, this man from Westchester is known nationally. Here’s how Joe Mazza became Home Inspector Joe.

A dream that most people have is to wake up one day and become recognized. That’s exactly what happened to Joe Mazza, a home inspector based in Westchester County. Mazza was a construction working, grinding every day in New York City to make ends meet. “I was just burnt out and sick of dealing with the people I was dealing with in New York City,” says Mazza. “I was making them a lot of money and not making enough for myself.”

“My main focus was to do something where I could help people,” says Mazza. “I love helping people.” Home inspections popped into Mazza’s head, and the rest became history. The passion he has in home inspection is seen by everyone. As a result, his business blew up immediately.

On July 29, 2019, RIVR Media reached out to Mazza with an idea for a television show after seeing him on Instagram. “They liked the way I worked behind the camera and how I presented myself and explained everything,” says Mazza. “One thing led to another, and here I am.”

Most shows on television today are renovation shows. The show is different because everything about a home is being covered. On top of that, the producers liked that the show was based in New York with someone who was born and raised in the area.

One of the main things that Mazza loves about this show is that he can continue to help people in the area in which he lives. “I drive by these houses and see these homes a lot,” says Mazza. “It’s nice to say to my daughter, ‘Hey Gigi, daddy worked on that house.’”

Mazza and his crew try to keep the houses that they work on relatable, in accordance with the area in which they are filming. In Westchester County, that area ranges anywhere from 2,000 to 3,000 square feet. On top of that, they usually try to complete the home within 30 days. “It doesn’t always work like that, especially around here [Westchester],” says Mazza. “There are always delays.”
