Detecting Real Estate Issues

Need to detect environmental issues in real estate?

You've come to the right place.

We can help — we know what to do.

We have experience navigating the maze of California water and air environmental regulations.

Perhaps you just received a letter requesting action with lots of unfamiliar, scientific words, or your potential buyer has questions you can't answer. Or, the DTSC, RWQCB, or EPA clearly want some action — but what does their letter mean? What will it cost you? How or What should you do and when?

We have the technical and scientific expertise to navigate and analyze environmental regulations.

How? We can evaluate a wide variety of highly technical environmental problems — from soil, groundwater, health risk issues, mold and fungus, to Superfund allocations, and PRP letters.

Just when it seems like you just hit a brick wall, we can be there to assist you.
