In this area we will share information with the readers about businesses in our cities. San Marcos is more than beautiful rivers, education, and good neighbors. It is also the businesses that make up the economy of our city. These businesses are owned and/or operated by our neighbors and often overlooked in the mainstream media.

We sent out questionnaires to dozens of companies in San Marcos and the surrounding areas and will feature a new one each week. If you would like your company featured on an upcoming Business Spotlight, shoot an email to with your fax number and we will send you a questionnaire.

Business Spotlight – First Look Home Inspections

Bill Payne


6673 Center Point Rd.
San Marcos, TX 78666




Description of Products/Services sold:
I perform quality inspections of existing homes, new construction (phase inspections), commercial property inspections and Home Energy inspections.

Why are you located in San Marcos?
Born and raised in San Antonio, my wife Valerie, and I moved to the San Marcos area in 1985. San Marcos has been our home ever since. We love it here and believe strongly in our community.

What makes your business unique?
My past experience with inspection services and customer relations are my strongest qualities. I do not have a lengthy history in the construction business. Some people feel this is a negative for new inspectors, and it can be if you don’t have other qualities. From early in my career as an aviation technician performing inspections on light aircraft to experience gained as a field engineer performing facility evaluations and coordinating computer room remodels, I have developed skills and an understanding of the inspector process. That experience along with my longtime passion for building and remodeling gives me a unique and I hope, a superior approach to home inspections.
