About Your Home Inspector

Licensed Home Inspector Mike Donitzen

Why you should hire AHI as your home inspector.

I can’t speak for other home inspectors, but the reason you should hire me, and I mean no insult. I don’t care if you buy the property!  You hire a home inspector to make you aware of the condition of the home not sell it to you. I am not a Realtor, that’s not a home inspector’s job. That’s why you should hire me as your home inspector.

Be wary of mold and home inspectors that make light of this health hazard.  See Virginia Code 55.1-703. Virginia home buyers are advised to exercise due diligence when purchasing a home, including obtaining a home inspection and a mold assessment performed by a business that adheres to the EPA mold assessment guidelines. The VA Home Inspection Standards do not require home inspectors to report mold even if they see it during a home inspection. 

Over 43 years of experience building, repairing, and inspecting homes



I am Mike (Dee) Donitzen, licensed home inspector and owner of Aztec Home Inspections Inc. I truly believe my quote ” When the cost of one’s service is more important than their customer and their integrity, both lose.”  I will always report siginificant discoveries what I find during a home inspection and not worry about losing a referral. 





Located in Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley I serve Harrisonburg, Mount Jackson, Staunton, Luray, Waynesboro, Lexington, and Charlottesville, Virginia, and the surrounding area.


With over 43 years of experience building and repairing homes, and over 11,000+ completed home inspections, you’ll benefit from my knowledge and support during your home inspection.

Home inspectors in Virginia are not required to have direct home building experience or tell you about the home’s maintenance needs. This can leave the home buyer lacking in need to know crucial information about the property!

If you are looking for a trustworthy, knowledgeable home inspector with hands-on experience building and repairing homes, then hire Aztec Home Inspections as your home-buying partner.

Aztec Home Inspection reports include maintenance and upgrade documentation to help prepare you to take care of your investment.
