BLUE STAR HOME INSPECTIONS
By Dr. Kasia Suarez Photography By Sarah Greaud Photography
Matthew and Angela Lynch, owners of Blue Star Real Estate Inspection Services, work toward the same goal as REALTORS®: helping each client find a home that is safe, affordable, and the best fit for their needs. The Lynches molded their business to cater to clients and agents by providing online and mobile scheduling, extending office hours, working weekends in the busy season, and helping loyal agents who need an inspection in a pinch. Blue Star’s software allows online scheduling, assessment of availability, referencing of past inspections, and the creation of a repair list directly from the inspection report! These tools help agents serve their clients efficiently and completely, turning them into a one-stop shop. Blue Star Real Estate Inspection Services provides high-quality residential inspections and14 • May 2022
ancillary services to the families and REALTORS® they serve, and they do so by following their mission, vision, and values as a family-owned company.
Matt, a native of Odem, is no stranger to hard work and discipline. He was recruited out of high school to play baseball for the Texas A&M Kingsville Javelinas. During the summers, he worked at local refiners to save money for tuition and college living expenses. He left college after three years, realizing he was making more money at the refinery than some people who had a four-year degree. After spending several years successfully climbing the ranks, Matt reached a plateau and discovered he could not advance without returning to college. He continued working full time while earning a degree in Industrial Engineering with a minor in Business Administration from Texas A&M Kingsville.
lessons: never take people for granted, treat others with love, and always give your best because tomorrow is not guaranteed. Utilizing what she learned as a receptionist, secretary, and paralegal for high-profile law offices, Angela is the ever-cheerful voice behind the phone. Her past experiences prepared her to create and manage an efficient and welcoming office environment. Matt is proud of how she oversees the operations and growth of Blue Star and says she is what makes him successful by believing in him and helping make their dreams a reality. The couple’s strengths fill in any gaps in the other’s weaknesses, and they provide clients and REALTORS® with a seamless experience.
Blue Star Real Estate Inspection Services has expanded, adding two additional inspectors. They are in the process of hiring a marketing person and are excited to sign a lease in an office building. For the Lynches, home inspections are a business and a profession, not just a job. They have over 100 positive Google reviews and thrive on feedback because they are always looking for ways to improve. They do things with purpose, utilizing their mission and vision statements when making decisions.
“We are purposeful about keeping ourselves and our staff up-to-date on any changes in regulations or procedures related to home inspection,” Angela shared, “because you don’t know what you don’t know. We are constantly learning and surrounding ourselves with like-minded people. We belong to the coaching group Inspector Empire Builders. This network of top home inspectors in the country continues to raise the bar in this industry and helps us stay current and elevate our business.”
Matt continued, “At Blue Star, we take the extra time to give our clients and agents the attention they need. We know first-time homebuyers are nervous, so we like to prepare them and their REALTORS® to be fully informed and confidently aware of the condition of the home. I’ve always found it rewarding to be able to teach people. I want agents to know that cheaper does not mean better, and a shorter report does not mean an easier transaction. We do not ever want anyone to feel like we are impeding or sabotaging their deal; we know that the best REALTORS® want their clients to have the most accurate reports.”
As business owners, it would be easy for the Lynches to get caught up in work 24/7, but instead, they utilize their ability to control their schedule so they can have plenty of family time. All four of their children enjoy a variety of sports, and Matt and Angela juggle schedules, practices, and games so they can cultivate their children’s interests. Matt enjoys coaching his son’s Little League team and supporting local high school athletics.
The Lynch family is intentional about being involved in the community. One of their biggest goals is showing their children a love for God, being a living example of how rewarding it is to have a servant’s heart. Angela is a member of several CCAR committees and focuses on events that educate home buyers and improve policies for homeowners and REALTORS®. She is honored to give back to the industry that supports their family. Matt, the quiet but brilliant introvert, and Angela, the big-hearted people-person, work in unison to serve their community.
They currently provide residential inspection services, wood-destroying insect/termite inspections, sewer scope camera inspections, visual pool inspections, and septic inspections. They can easily set up hydrostatic drain leak tests with a local, trusted, preferred partner plumbing company. They look forward to adding more services for REALTORS® and clients in Corpus Christi and seven surrounding counties. Blue Star Real Estate Inspection Services is making an impact on lives by providing professional, knowledgeable, honest, and reliable services, giving REALTORS® and their clients peace of mind as they make the right choices for their families’ future.
