About Wade Hancock

Wade HancockDuring the course of a routine home purchase, Wade’s mother contracted the services of a professional home inspector recommended by a real estate agent. The inspector’s report informed his mother of 11 problem items. After closing, Wade visited his mother in her new home and found 14 problem items on the front porch alone. His mom was initially satisfied with the inspector’s performance, but she soon learned a much more thorough job could have been done. This is, sadly, a common occurrence.

With over 20 years of commercial design, industrial design and construction experience behind him, Wade decided to provide an alternative to the status quo, and Hancock Consulting & Inspections, PLLC was born.

While working for various engineering firms during his career, Wade’s commercial/ industrial design portfolio of clients include AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, Department of Defense, NASA and many others. A steadfast commitment to quality propelled Wade to high levels of responsibility within several of these companies. You can imagine the attention to detail required by NASA.

After deciding to include the residential market into his service offerings, true to form, Wade didn’t take the easy route. Completing over 440 hours of instruction and earning thirteen (13) certifications from Texas State University, Wade passed the State Professional Inspector exam on his first attempt.

Married in 1995, Wade and Lisa Hancock make a good team. They work together to ensure their clients receive the highest level of service. Their four children are high performers in school, are active in the community and participate in several extracurricular activities. Wade is very proud of his family.

Wade believes Hancock Consulting & Inspections provides his clients with the best opportunity to obtain a complete and accurate vision about the condition of their property. Wade will perform the same level of inspection for you as he would for his own mother.


We hired Wade to do our home inspection before we bought our house earlier this year. He was thorough and took the time to teach us some things about the house we were buying. He provided us with a detailed report quickly which we appreciated since during the home buying process it feels like you are spending all your time chasing down paperwork!

This review is long overdue. I wanted to do inspections throughout the construction process for my house that was finished in July. Wade at Hancock Consulting & Inspections came out and did both the Rough In and Final inspections. He was very good at explaining what everything meant while we walked through and pointed out all of his findings. He was also happy to answer any questions that I had and I didn’t feel rushed. His turn-around for the inspection report was within 24 hours for both inspections which is incredibly helpful, especially during construction. I’d definitely use Hancock Consulting & Inspections again.
