Independent, Family Run Business
Lenny Andrews founded Hawk-Eye Home Inspections in 2002 based on his commitment to and pride in the Beaufort community. Although not a Beaufort native, Lenny has called Beaufort home since 1988 when he was stationed at Parris Island. As a Marine, Lenny refined his ability to give due attention to detail, which now allows him to perform thorough and thoughtful home inspections today. After Lenny left the military, he remained in Beaufort to raise his three children.
Lenny has built his business from basic principles such as integrity, transparency, and commitment to customer satisfaction. Lenny prides himself in his first-hand knowledge of the construction industry. Before opening the doors to Hawk-Eye Home Inspections, Lenny acquired ten years of construction experience and served as a foreman on construction crews building homes around the Beaufort area to include Harbor, Fripp, and Hilton Head Islands. During this time, Lenny gained experience with electrical, plumbing, roofing, and framing.
Lenny’s oldest children—Seth and Destinee—are graduates of Beaufort High School. Lenny’s youngest son, Gunnar, is still in primary school in the Beaufort area. Lenny has been a pillar of strength in his family’s lives. Among other things, Lenny has served as a volunteer coach on his kids’ baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, and football teams. Recently, in 2017, Wardle Family YMCA recognized Lenny with the distinction of Coach of the Year.
In his spare time, Lenny spends his time in nature—hunting, fishing, and beaching. Lenny also spends time with his wonderful wife, Lisa. He thanks her for her love, faith in him, and especially for her culinary masterpieces, which he will always happily enjoy.
