About Me - Your Home Inspector

My name is Brendan Ahern and I am the owner and sole operator of Homefront Inspections, LLC.

I am also a Marine Corps combat veteran and Purple Heart recipient. As a veteran who has served overseas, I know the importance of home. I will always put my mission (your inspection) first, and I will get the job done for you the right way- thoroughly, efficiently, and safely!


I joined the Marine Corps in 2005 and was stationed in Twentynine Palms, California, where I met my wife, Molly. I served with the 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, and was deployed to Iraq in 2007, and Afghanistan in 2008.  Following my honorable discharge from the military, Molly and I moved back to my hometown Chicago where we married and I studied to become an electrician. 

Eventually, we tired of the big city life and in 2012 we moved to the great state of Indiana, where Molly grew up.

I worked for a residential landscaping company before obtaining a commercial driver's license.  Then, I went to work for Monarch Beverage, an Indianapolis-based beer and wine distributor, driving a semi-truck.  During this time, Molly and I bought our first home and had our daughter, Elladora.


As a family, one of our biggest life goals is to live off the land and become as self-sufficient as possible.  I have a passion for all things related to homesteading, and accordingly, the most important part is the home itself!  I love to learn about architecture and homebuilding techniques and technologies, and my military training has taught me how to pay great attention to detail.  I will put these passions and skills to work during your home inspection, and I'm confident you will be delighted with the results.

When I say, “I know the importance of home,” it's because after traveling around the world experiencing the many things life has to offer, both good and bad, I’ve found that home is the best place to be.

Home should be a safe place where we are free to be ourselves, spend time with the people we love, and make our fondest memories.  As an existing or potential homeowner, you want to rest assured, knowing your property is safe and will retain its value over time.  My mission is to provide you with a careful and complete inspection and report, so you can relax and enjoy what home is really all about!
