Our goal is simple—to give you the information you need when you need it, so you can make the right decision with your investment. Whether you’re buying your family’s new home or renting a commercial building for your growing business, NPI North Chicago Metro gives you peace of mind.

Owner and Inspector Joe Beaton is a US Air Force veteran, having served during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in supply chain management and an associate’s degree in business management. He brings years of property inspection experience and fantastic customer service to the Chicago North Shore area. When he’s not busy inspecting, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters, traveling (to Canada, the Philippines, Japan, Italy, and many other exotic locales), and rooting for the Chicago Cubs and Blackhawks. 

Our office is a locally owned franchise, part of the NPI organization of nearly 300 inspectors. Every inspection is different. All NPI inspectors have access to technical support seven days a week. This means questions are answered in a timely manner, which means you receive complete results when you need them.
