Experience the Abear Difference


Born and raised on the central coast, Steve is a well known staple in the local inspection industry. Starting at the young age of 15 in the family business, Steve learned early that success is earned, not given. Many days full of hard work and growth opportunities have shaped him through the years. Though the experience he gained was hard earned, that knowledge has placed him at the top of his field.

With much appreciation for the community that contributed so much to his accomplishments, Steve sees the value in giving back. Donating to Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, Cops N Kids and multiple other non-profit organizations that provide invaluable assistance to our local community. As a sitting member of the Board of Directors for the International Footprinters Association, Steve contributes his talents to help bridge the gap between Law Enforcement and the public through the annual COPS-N-KIDS event. With the confidence that his efforts make even a small difference in the community, Steve is always happy to be of service.

Jamie ParkinsABear Property Inspections is proud to welcome Jamie Parkins to our team! When considering the expansion of our company, we knew the person that would be selected had to be made of “The Right Stuff.”  Jamie definitely fit the bill. With 26 years in the industry, and an impeccable reputation as a top notch inspector, we found our man!

Jamie is a California native with deep roots in our community. Starting his career in the industry prior to graduating from Righetti High School, Jamie’s course was solidified early. Like Steve, Jamie began by learning a strong work ethic in the family business. Working in multiple departments of the Termite industry, the knowledge of building science was enhanced. Performing home repairs first hand helped Jamie understand not only -how- the damage occurred, but -why- the damage occurred. Adopting the notion that it’s not enough to fix the problem, but to correct the issue. Through his career he has managed to develop a keen sense of finding answers by evaluating all available information. ABear Property Inspections was looking for the right person with real world insight to actual conditions, and not just some guy that read a Home Inspection book then took an online test. Jamie has years of in field experience and the ability to objectively evaluate conditions. In addition, he has personally and professionally  interacted with thousands of home owners and Real Estate Agents during the Escrow process. Jamie absolutely is the right man for the job!
