A 25-year veteran of the U. S. Marine Corps, Guy Hartman is no stranger to hard work.
He retired in 1998 after a long list of accomplishments and challenges including Marine Corps boot camp, Marine Corps Officer Candidate School, U. S. Navy Flight School, Navy Test Pilot School and earning a Master of Science degree. All while raising a family.
He was the chief test pilot for the presidential helicopter program located at the Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, Maryland. He led his team in developing a test program that remains in use and is now the model for other military test programs on the base.
Hartman continues to innovate. When formulating his future career trajectory, Hartman honed in on franchising in home inspections, an area of personal interest and experience.
“I had been interested in becoming a home inspector for many years,” he said. “I came to the AmeriSpec® franchise so that I could quickly build my business. From personally buying and selling many
homes, I felt AmeriSpec had a consistent product that was clearly better than the competing franchises.”
Now, four years into being an AmeriSpec® owner and continuing to add staff and inspectors to his franchise, he says there’s no place he’d rather be. “I’ve had some fantastic and unique
experiences in my life,” Hartman said. “But, I’d rather be doing what I’m doing now – running my AmeriSpec® home inspection business!”
During his military career, Hartman sold and purchased many homes and had several inspections done by AmeriSpec. Impressed by the consistency and experience overall, the AmeriSpec business model was his choice when he retired from the aviation industry and was contemplating his next career move. With a home base in Jupiter, and a service area that covers north Palm
Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties, Hartman helps South Florida buyers, homeowners and realtors with all their home inspection needs. His wife, Cindy, handles the operations and marketing while Hartman covers the inspections. With new ideas and innovation in mind, Hartman began building a ServiceMaster networking group for support and business synergy. This unique vehicle benefits all ServiceMaster franchises in his area – ServiceMaster Clean®, ServiceMaster Restore®, AmeriSpec® and Furniture Medic® – with relationship building and interaction between each other, home buyers and the real estate and insurance communities.
Full-knowing a healthy balance of work, personal time and community give back
is important, Hartman plays the drums in his spare time and plans to support a youth baseball team in the near future. Maybe, he’ll call them the “Inspectors.”
