Get to Know Kelly and the Jollys
Meet Kelly Jolly
You will sense our difference from other businesses when you first call America’s Home Checkers. There’s no answering service, but a pleasant-voiced live person. Most of the time, it will be my mom, Martha. She’ll help you with scheduling and pricing your inspection. Sometimes, my dad Harold might answer the phone.
A licensed home inspector himself, we started the business together in 1993. He retired from home inspections in 2016, but is still active in radon machine recovery and testing results, marketing, and helping with day-to-day activities. My youngest daughter Kaitlyn holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in marketing-related fields, so she coordinates our promotional activities.
My grandfather, Aaron, owned a sawmill in Sampson County, North Carolina and instead of contracts, he believed in the power of an honest handshake. He lived by the saying “Your word is your bond”. This principle was passed down from my grandfather to my father, then to me, and I’ve passed this along to my two girls.
I’m so glad to have my family involved in the business to provide excellent personal and professional customer service. That’s the Jolly Family way and we are proud to offer it to customers throughout the Greater Triangle area, including Durham, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Hillsborough, Wake Forest, Youngsville, Butner, Creedmoor, Bahama, Timberlake, Rougemont, Roxboro, Garner and Apex.
Experience & Standards
In addition to our personal Jolly Family service standards, we follow the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), one of the most respected and recognized organizations in the home inspection industry. No other home inspection organizations have training and continuing education requirements as strict as ASHI’s.
We bring decades of top notch professional background in related fields to complement our inspection services. I started working in construction in the early 1980s and became a Licensed General Contractor in the early 1990s. We’re also former real estate agents and remain active Multiple Listing Service members, which makes it easier to access most any property and work closely with area real estate agents.
If you choose America’s Home Checkers as your home inspector, you’ll have full access to information on your home long after your inspection is complete. Not only does your digital report stay available online for five years, but I welcome your calls for more information about your home, even 10 years after the inspection. It doesn’t even have to be a problem, feel free to call any time you have a question.
Kelly Off The Clock
When I’m not conducting inspections, I really love spending time with my family cooking or enjoying music! I’ve been married to my wife Gina for 32 years and we’ve raised two daughters, Ashley and Kaitlyn, and now have two grandsons, Eli and Jayce. We also have two dogs, Sophie, a golden retriever, and Cali, a Yorkie.
I’ve played guitar in a few country and rock and roll bands over the years and still love listening to and playing music when I get the chance. When I’m cooking, the more people there are, the better I like it. Just for fun, I often set up at events like Lakefest and prepare barbeque and all the fixings, using recipes my granddad taught me when I was 13, plus a few favorites of my own creation.
The Jolly family has always been, and will always be, dedicated to serving this region professionally and personally and we look forward to serving you.
