About Us

A note from the founders

Hi, we're Michael and Kevin, the founders of Spectora. Since 2015 we've been talking to home inspectors, getting to know the industry, and working hard to build the Spectora platform. We get up early and stay up late, excited to offer a great product combined with responsive service.

We believe that home inspection reports should be visually appealing, understandable, and full of useful information. We do research with focus groups to optimize the final report for agent and client satisfaction, the main driver of your business. We believe the home inspection process should be the modern web experience, fully integrated with the latest in technology.

We believe your software should be powerful AND easy-to-use, helping you do your job faster. We value a clean interface over packing in features that very few people use. We want to streamline your workflow so you can improve your bottom line, even if it means foregoing some customizing details.

We value innovation and rapid progress - we will frequently put out new features and rely on your feedback to improve them. We believe in utilizing the latest technologies to push the industry forward. We want our software and services to feel like a "steal" for you, providing a return-on-investment you'll brag about to your friends and colleagues.

If your values line up with ours, give us a try. It's free, no credit card required. We're here to build lifelong relationships with our customers, so don't be surprised if you get a call from us after you've played around with the software a bit. We'll even check in from time to time to see how we can do better.

We'd love the opportunity to show you what we can do.

Kevin Wagstaff

Founder | Digital Marketing Specialist | Content Producer

Hi, I'm Kevin. When you join Spectora, I'll be the guy you interact with for on-boarding, digital marketing solutions, and product support. I'm also the writer behind many of the articles found in our Resource Center.

Prior to founding Spectora, I worked as an SEO Specialist on the Search Engine Optimization Team at HomeAdvisor, where I did content creation, link building, on-page optimization, competitive research, partnership building, and rank tracking.

I have also been a Realtor for several years. After talking to dozens of home inspectors during real estate transactions, I learned of the pain points inspectors had with software, marketing, and business growth. My brother and I started building a platform to solve these problems.

I bring an analytical approach to marketing for Spectora clients, using data metrics and the latest in SEO knowledge to improve home inspection businesses. Don't hesitate to get in touch with questions!



Michael Wagstaff

Founder | Product Designer | Software Engineer

Hi, I'm Mike. I'm the designer and software engineer of the web platform and mobile apps. I also write content and do tech support. Let me know when you have feature requests, encounter bugs, or need data imported from other platforms.

Before starting Spectora, I spent 12 years building web and mobile applications with my consulting company Denver Digital Media. I've worked with businesses of all sizes, from startups to Fortune 100 companies.

I am an outlier in the world of tech, being both an engineer and a designer. I believe functionality and design are inseparable in good software. I'm building Spectora to be full of powerful features while maintaining an ease-of-use and approachability that makes it your favorite platform to use.

I love hearing feedback on our product - please reach out anytime.



Mark Castillo

Director of Marketing | Web & Graphic Designer

Hello! I’m Mark. I work on marketing for Spectora and handle all website requests. If you’re in need of a website for your inspection company, I’ll work on marketing for you as well!

Before joining the Spectora team, I worked in marketing for the largest family owned jewelry company in the US, Shane Co. I helped modernize their branding and visual advertising, contributing to the company’s best years in sales.

In college, frustrated with the pace of my first web design class, I began teaching myself. Before completing my first course, I started pounding the pavement, selling websites. By graduation time, my websites were all over town and my first entrepreneurial experiment was thriving!

Since then, I’ve always loved being part of that exhilarating new beginning for business owners. I get really excited about graphic design, advertising strategy, and branding. With Spectora I get to do all of that!
