These are three organizations dealing with home inspections and other services. Use caution when hiring one of their members, or anyone that claims to be a member. Although I'm sure that most of their members are honest, what concerns me is that the member I hired, Timmy Reeder in Crandon has done some pretty bad things which may include harassment, slander, defamation of charecter, fraud, etc. These three organizations refuse to do anything, so be cautious. If they do take action against Reeder, I will be glad to post it here.

The above is just my opinion and not to be taken as fact.

It is not true that NACHI (now InterNACHI) refuses to do anything. All of these organizations are willing to do something when a court or other governing body finds in favor of the plaintif. Once I got wind of this parties complaint, as the Wisconsin InterNACHI Chapter President, I forwarded his complaints to the InterNACHI Director of Professional Development.

He confirmed that InterNACHI cannot take action against a member for not living up to an agreement at this time, but the other issues of harassment, slander, defamation of character,are serious allegations and the compliant has been forwarded to 2 members of the InterNACHI Ethic Committee to investigate.

I can promise that his comlaint would be handled in a similar way by any other organization. One cannot reasonably expect that a member be kicked out on the basis of 1 complaint where liability has yet to be determined.

To suggest that people "Watch Out" for members of any of these organizations because he had a bad experience with one member is wrongheaded.

To begin to trash the organizations because they want to handle the issue in a fair an even handed manner, does not reflect well on the complaintant. He is still entitled to his day in court and further investigation. If his allegations prove to be true, he will get his justice.

Its now been over 5 months since these items were brought to the attention of NACHI. First we were told the guy in question wasn't even a member, and the we were told he was, and so on like this for a month. These organizations have done everything in their power to protect people like Reeder and to help him appear legit. I am looking into taking legal action against all of the above organizations.

Here is a partial list of all the things Timmy Reeder has done, in addition to possible consumer fraud as far as the actual tests he was hired to do. Timmy is a member of NACHI and there partner, IAC2

1. Called my 76 year old mom at her home in IL at least 2 times. The first time he left a message. He then called her back at 7:30am the next morning, woke her up, and proceeded to yell at her before slamming the phone down and hanging up on her. She called me in tears and feared for my safety. He may have had his wife or another female call my mom again and when my mom asked who was calling, the caller replied, "the Darien Police Dept" and hung up. My mom lives in Darien, IL. We have subpoenaed the phone company for the blocked number. My mom has absolutely nothing to do with this. He has her phone number because years ago he used to cut our grass. He was much better at that and I hope he still has his lawn mower. I sent copies of these complaints to the WECC.

2. After I received the tearful call from my mom, I called Reeder and told him to never call my mom again. He hung up.

3. He then went to the Forest County Wi. Sheriffs Dept. and filed a complaint against me claiming harassing phone calls. He also claimed that the reason he called my mom was because I was refusing to pay him for the work. Lie number 1. I paid him before he left my home and have filed a suit in small claims to recover my money. Copies of this were sent to the WECC.

4. He then goes to the Vilas County Sheriff and files another complaint. In this one he now claims I am an ex employee and that I was harassing him through phone calls. What about his claim in Forest County that I did not pay him? Lie 2. Copies sent to the WECC.

5. I filed a claim in small claims court and at the mediation he now claims that he did what I hired him to do. Lie 3. Up until this point I assumed he was simply lying in his reports since he is friends with the people that built our house and he thought I was going to use them in arbitration. Now I found out that he never did what he was hired to do.

6. In his responses to the other complaints I filed, he simply accuses me of lying, calls me names, and makes many other untrue accusations in an effort to make himself appear legit. He also has sent along copies of his 2 false complaints with the Sheriff, and has even included another false complaint filed by a woman I don't even know. This woman has absolutely NOTHING to do with Reeder and myself. Her complaint was about a completely different matter, but this didn't stop Reeder. Slander and/or defamation of character. Sent to WECC

7. I am the Wi. representative for Home Owners Against Deficient Dwellings (HADD). Reeder created a fake email and contacted me through HADD's web site. The HADD secretary forwarded his fake email to me and asked me if I could help. After emailing the fake email address, I realized what was going on and did some checking to confirm this email was in deed from Reeder. It was. Lie 4 or is that 5? There are so many I lost count.

8. Reeder informed the builder that he did some testing for me and their lawyers have sent at least 3 letters to my attorney asking about them. In addition, Reeder showed up to our arbitration with the builder on their behalf. The builder has copies of our confidential report. This clearly violates every organizations code of ethics.

9. At the St Germain, Wi. town board meeting they mention my lawsuit against Reeder. This has absolutely nothing to do with the town, but somehow Reeder has once again made my confidential reports and service very public.

The founder of NACHI lies, so why would anyone believe anyone that belongs to any of these organizations? Get your facts straight Dave. Find out everything instead of just picking and choosing what you want to deal with. The actions and comments from Dave prove my point.

Here is the most serious violation of NACHI's code of ethics and every other organizations code, TIMMY SHOWED UP AT OUR ARBITRATION WITH THE BUILDER!!!! Let me say that again, despite the three letters sent to the builders attorney stating that we would not be using Reeder or his useless reports, Reeder was here with the builder on their behalf. So according to Dave, "One cannot reasonably expect that a member be kicked out on the basis of 1 complaint where liability has yet to be determined." this isn't enough to do anything. Reeder could have cost us approximately $10,000 or our whole case if he would have testified. How? He has lied about everything listed above and his reports are useless so a reasonable person can only assume that the builder's reason for having him here was because he would help them by lying. I only hope and pray that while NACHI waits for more complaints before doing something, that someone else's dreams aren't crushed by Reeder's actions. By the way, because of Reeder's useless reports we did hire another honest person to redo the tests. He is not a member of any of the above organizations.
Bottom line, by not doing anything, NACHI, IAC2, and ESA have basicly let people like Reeder and other members know that they can pretty much do what they want without any consequences. These organizations will protect them.

The above is just my opinion.

Here's another interesting fact. Reeder claims to belong to IAC2 which is connected to NACHI. He even has a link and their logo on his web page, but his name is not listed anywhere on IAC2's web site.

Since I am not the one investigating this, I don't need any facts. I read enough of your compliant to see that it warranted futher investigation and asked that it be looked into.

The ethics committee that I know, rarely leaves a stone unturned. If Reeder is a members and your alegations prove to be true, he will be dealt with.

You won't get far by trying to assasinate the character of others associated with these organizations. It serves no useful purpose and could stand in the way of achieving a satisfactory resolution.

Dave sent me an email on 7/11 stating that the ethics commitee at NACHI would would contact me and look into my complaint. I'm still waiting while in the meantime it's business as usal for Reeder. It's also been over 3 months since I first contacted all the organizations that Reeder belongs to. How many of you people reading this may have been a victim of Reeder or one of the members of NACHI, IAC2, or ESA while people like Dave and Joe try to figure out how to protect Reeder? Pretty sad if you ask me.

Below are Nachi's Code of Ethics which I believe Reeder has violated. Why does NACHI have these but don't do anything when a member violates the code? Is Reeder the only one that gets away with this? Do all the other members abide by the rules? Read what the guy above claims Reeder has done and compare them to these code of ethics.

The InterNACHI member shall not engage in any practices that could be damaging to the public or bring discredit to the home inspection industry.

The InterNACHI member shall be truthful regarding his/her services & qualifications

The InterNACHI member shall not communicate any information about an inspection to anyone except the client without the prior written consent of the client, except where it may affect the safety of others or violates a law or statute.

The InterNACHI member shall always act in the interest of the client, unless doing so violates a law, statute or this Code of Ethics.

The InterNACHI member shall use a written contract that specifies the services to be performed, limitations of services and fees.

The InterNACHI member shall not perform or offer to perform, for an additional fee, any repairs or associated services to structure on which the member or member's company has prepared a home inspection report, for a period of 12 months. This provision shall not include services to components and/or systems which are not included in the InterNACHI standards of practice.

The InterNACHI member shall not engage in any act or practice that could be deemed damaging, seditious or destructive to InterNACHI, fellow InterNACHI members, InterNACHI employees, leadership or directors. Member(s) accused of acting or deemed in violation of such rules shall be reviewed by the Ethics committee for possible sanctions and/or expulsion from InterNACHI.

Well, Dave has proved my point about NACHI, IAC2, and ESA. They won't do anything to enforce their own rules and code of ethics. What does that tell you? In my opinion, you would be better off looking in the Yellow Pages for an inspector in you area. Just close your eyes, run your finger down the page, stop, open your eyes, and call whoever your finger is pointing too. As long as they are not members of any of the above organizations, hire them. The odds of getting someone honest are much better then hiring anyone associated with these organizations. Just my opinion.

So, Dave, nothing to say? I guess we can all agree that everything stated here is correct and accurate. Now I can safely say that everyone should avoid hiring anyone associated with NACHI, IACQ2, and ESA. The reasons are right here, they're a do nothing organizations whose purpose is to try to give credibility to crooks. Just my opinion

Just wanted all members and staff of ESA to know that I had my day in court with Mr. Schuler earlier today after a month and a half of waiting after he postponed. The coward did not even have the courtesy to show up and attempt to defend his ranting. Case dismissed in my favor. Just goes to show that you can complain all you want but when the devil in the details comes out, those who are honest and reputable are ultimately vindicated.

Good Afternoon,

My name is Joe Lyons Vice President of Environmental Solutions Association.
One of your members Dan Schuler is sending out the below email to our members
about Tim Reeder. He is stating that we are doing nothing about this and I
can show you several emails of where it was explained what we would do when
he is found guilty in a court of law as there are two sides in dispute with
different information. I also investigated Mr. Reeder and had been in contact
with the BBB and WI Department of Consumer Protection and concurred with
their statement about this being settled in a court of law. I can also show
you which is starting to be harrassing emails of threats to us and to another
organization.

Please advise your standpoint with Mr. Schuler.
Honest one
