Alex Christensen - Owner and Home Inspector

Alex has a passion for helping his community.  He views home inspecting as a
critical tool in unearthing the knowledge home buyers and sellers need to
empower the decision process.
Prior to joining Pillar to Post as an employee, Alex worked fighting wildfires
throughout the Northwest.  It was there that Alex discovered his passion for
community and helping those around him.  After moving to Seattle in 2017, he
began working for Mary’s Place, a local Non-Profit. He served at Mary’s Place
in various capacities, improving community engagement and helping families
in need get back on their feet.
Alex embodies the same drive for professionalism and customer satisfaction
that characterizes the Pillar to Post brand.  He brings a drive for excellence in
customer service based on his years in the field and experience helping
realtors, buyers and sellers make homeownership a reality in the Puget Sound
area. He understands that thorough, non-biased and calmy explained
reporting is essential the inspection process. Now, as Co-owner, he is excited
to offer his years of experience with the Van Pamel Team and continue to
deliver on the customer-first mindset that established one of the Seattle Area’s
most respected and trusted home inspection teams.
When he’s not inspecting, you can find Alex hiking the trails of the Pacific
Northwest with his dogs and girlfriend or Snowboarding at local resorts.
