About Our Team:

Each of our inspectors possesses an extensive skill set that contributes immensely to performing property inspections. While they all come from different backgrounds, each inspector brings their own unique knowledge, talent and capabilities to the benefit of the entire team. This truly makes Spectrum an outstanding company!

Every inspector maintains a positive attitude and completes our scope of service by exceeding standards and expectations constantly while delivering the Advanced Scope Inspection. All inspectors and office staff work 7 days a week and do everything possible to create an outstanding experience for our clients and customers. This is only possible through teamwork.

Our inspectors hold weekly meetings in order to discuss ways to achieve a higher level of service at every inspection, whether it be through returning to the property after an inspection to re-inspect, or to provide a presentation at the conclusion of the inspection. We accommodate same day inspection requests and perform inspections at odd hours to accommodate the schedules of our clients. Our reports are guaranteed within a 24 hour turn around. Every single member of our company is dedicated to giving you the best service possible.

Casey headshot
Casey Kealoha
Office Manager and Scheduling Coordinator

Casey is our detail-oriented friendly face in the office and received this job by pure nepotism. Okay, we may be joking about that last detail, but Casey does share a birthday with Spectrum as she is owner and operator Lynn Donohue's daughter. Casey and Spectrum were both born twenty-three years ago, and she grew up in a world full of real estate sales and property inspections, making her the perfect candidate to manage the Spectrum office in later years while she earns her two bachelor's degrees in education and Spanish language. She has officially worked for Spectrum sporadically for the last six years, and has proven to be a sponge of information from years of listening to her parents operate Spectrum. Casey is most likely the chipper voice that will greet you when you call our office, and her attentiveness to detail is sure to accommodate whatever request you may have - from information questions to scheduling your very own Spectrum Inspection!
