Team Brightside

Scott Brown

Scott is a New York State licensed home inspector, a NACHI certified home inspector and a licensed radon measurement specialist.

Scott’s interest in construction began at an early age while working with his father on DIY projects around the house.

After graduating from Syracuse University Scott moved to Albany for work and later to the Caribbean island of St. Croix before returning home to Syracuse.

After returning to Syracuse Scott landed at a large regional home improvement company, eventually carving out a position on the executive team as the director of operations where he stayed for nearly a decade.

When not inspecting Scott can usually be found at the dome rooting for SU basketball. His favorite part of inspecting is educating first-time buyers about their new home.

Jeff Dugan

Jeff is a 2006 graduate of SUNY Potsdam and a NYS licensed home inspector. Jeff’s resume brings home building experience and his knowledge as a professional firefighter to the team.

When Jeff isn’t working he can be found traveling the U.S. to compete in Marathons and Iron-man competitions. He has competed in 21 states so far and has his sights set on all 50.
