John (Jack) Brunelle CPI® , CCI

President and CEO

HomeTeam® Inspection Service of South Orange County

Jack began his professional career after receiving his college degree in electrical technology.  Joining the family business as an apprentice plumber, he was exposed to every phase of home construction, from pouring of the foundation to the finishing touches. As his training continued, Jack observed each tradesman perform their tasks while honing in on the means and methods of installation throughout the entire home building process.

In the following years, Jack acquired licensing for Construction Supervision, Plumbing, and Heating/Air Conditioning, which lead to self-employment as a General Contractor and Plumbing/HVAC contractor in both Massachusetts and Connecticut. Later, he added the HomeTeam® Inspection Service franchise to his business portfolio, eager to share his knowledge with home buyers and Real Estate community as a Certified Home Inspector and licensed participant in the U.S. EPA’s Radon Proficiency Program.

With opportunities open in California, he and his family made the move west. Jack took employment as a Senior Project Manager with EMCOR Group Inc., a global Fortune 500 company specializing in mechanical and electrical contracting. During this tenure, he added ‘LEED® Accredited Professional’ and ‘Certificate of Mastery’ from the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA™) to his credentials.

Leaving his position at EMCOR, Jack now dedicates full time attention to the leadership of his second HomeTeam® Inspection Service franchise, based in South Orange County, California. Jack looks forward to bring the unique TEAM concept of Faster and Better home inspections to benefit the local real estate community.  HomeTeam has over 150 locations in 35 states and Canada.

Jack’s current industry credentials and 40+ years experience now include passing the National Home Inspector Examination®,  National Association of Certified Home Inspectors® (NACHI)  designation: ‘Certified Professional Inspector®’ (CPI), InterNACHI ‘Certified Pool and Spa Inspector’, certified mold and radon inspector by International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants (IAC2), member Organization of Real Estate Professionals (OREP), affiliate member Orange County Association of Realtors® (OCAR), and CREIA Certified Inspector (CCI) by California Real Estate Inspection Association.
