About us

In 1995 Bret  Butler founded Butler Property Inspections in Napa California; and since that time he has been offering inspections of single family homes, multi-family buildings, commercial buildings and manufactured homes.  His written reports are narrative in style (they are not "check list" written), include a number of pictures and exceed the industry standards of practice.  Bret has been a licensed General Contractor and California Real Estate Broker in the past; however for more than 2 decades his focus has been on building construction and inspection.  Bret is code certified by the International Code Council as a "Residential Combination Inspector" and is a certified inspector member of the American Society of Home Inspectors.  

Bret earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Southern Methodist University in 1985.  After living in Napa County for 25 years and raising two wonderful daughters, he now resides in Sonoma County with his partner, Sharon and their many animals.  Bret enjoys family, mountain climbing, camping, water sports and international travel.
