Founder, Managing Member of Grace Home Inspection Services, LLC

Clay attended University of Houston as an Electrical Engineering major before finding himself drawn into the world of high finance where he worked for over 27 years. Starting in the 11th largest independent bank within Harris County, as the world adopted branch banking and the fight for the largest and most branches became intense, he found himself working for the banks which became BankOne, NA and finally JPMorgan Chase. He served variously as District Operations Manager within Houston, Regional Manager of staff modeling (7 states 1,200+ offices), and Regional Audit Manager (3 states, 700+ offices) in addition to leading various national project implementations.

Clay has always been interested in construction and has long done his own remodeling and furniture building as well as that of his neighbors when caught in the right mood. At the end of his banking career, the idea of becoming a Real Estate Inspector was introduced by a friend and REALTOR®.

Clay joined TPREIA for the camaraderie, fellowship and wealth of knowledge found among its members. He has not been disappointed.
