Team Brightside

Scott Brown

Scott is a 2001 graduate of West Genesee High School, a graduate of Syracuse University and a New York State licensed home inspector. Scott’s interest in the construction industry began at an early age after working with his father on DIY projects. After college he began a career in the construction industry eventually rising to become the director of operations for one of the largest home improvement companies in the U.S.

When not inspecting Scott can usually be found at the dome rooting for SU basketball or traveling the northeast in search of the perfect craft beer. 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 professional home building experience to the team.

When Jeff isn’t inspecting 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.
