About John Overholser
John lives in West Virginia with his wife, Brooke, and two sons and is eagerly awaiting the arrival of their daughter!
John enjoys working with the Top To Bottom Services family so much that he makes the long commute every day and says, “meeting so many different people and seeing so many different homes” is what intrigues him about being an inspector. In particular, John says he is a big fan of inspecting historic and log homes.
“I never feel like I’ve seen it all and am constantly making new discoveries all the time. It keeps me on my toes and gives me something to discuss with the team so that everyone can learn from my experience.”
John started inspecting under his own company in 2011, but has been working with Top To Bottom Services since 2013; currently he holds the dual title of Building Consultant and Ancillary Services Manager. John has inspected thousands of homes in MD, VA, DC, and WV, and is NRPP certified as a radon measurement specialist; as the Ancillary Services Manager, John runs the Top To Bottom Services certified radon lab.
Additionally, John is an accredited Maryland Lead Risk Assessor and a certified water sampler and has also been certified in mold, indoor air quality, and infrared inspecting and testing.
In 2017, John was given an appreciation award from Top To Bottom Services for his service and dedication to the company and its values.
John enjoys growing his marine aquarium and corals, and also enjoys making smoked meats and BBQ. He host the annual Top To Bottom Services employee BBQ and cooks more than 50 lbs of meat for the occasion in his three smokers.
Despite his large stature, standing at 6’5” tall, he is known by many agents to be the guy that can get into almost any space.
John has lived in 7 different states all the way from California to Maryland. John’s family includes a small flock of chickens which have names and give us nearly 5 eggs a day.
