Darrel W. Creacy

Owner and Certified Master Inspector

TREC# 6473

I am Darrel Creacy, the owner and Chief Inspector of AMVET Inspections, I am also a Native Houstonian. In 1985 I enlisted in the United States Coast Guard, served our Great Country for 20 years then retired as an officer, Rescue Helicopter Pilot and Aeronautical Engineer. I have a B.S. Degree in Aeronautics from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University my minor is in aviation safety. I also hold licenses as an FAA Aircraft Mechanic, FCC Radio Operator, Airline Transport Pilot and Certified Flight Instructor. I have worked as a corporate helicopter pilot and worked as a Life Flight Pilot for 7 years from 2009 to 2016.   My back ground in construction comes from my father who was a bricklayer for more than 50 years. During my formidable years I spent all my summers and many weekends on construction sites working in the Texas elements. My father and I have built homes from the ground up physically putting them together ourselves. During my Coast Guard career, I held positions twice as a Facilities Manager. In late 2002 I had decided I would retire from the Military in 2005, so I went back to school and fulfilled the required education to satisfy the State of Texas to become an inspector.

I passed the Texas Real Estate Commission's (TREC) Professional Inspectors test the first time I tried. I attained my license in 2003 and have honed my inspection skills to serve my clients to the best of my abilities. I strive to be the most professional and valuable person that my clients deal with during their real estate transactions.

I am Kirsten Pyykola, I am the office manager for AMVET Inspections, I handle scheduling and booking for our wonderful clients, I do love going out on the field to learn new stuff about homes & getting to interreact with clients in person.


I am also affiliated with Women’s Council of Realtors (WCR) I have been with them for 3 years and serving on the board for 2 years. I am also a member with InterNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors).

I strive to give our clients the best information that comes with our home inspections also, to answer any questions or concerns they may have with their real estate transaction.

Jim Murray

Associate Real Estate Inspector

TREC# 21378

Hello, I am Jim Murray and have lived in Montgomery Texas for the last 15 years.  I am a 22 year veteran of the U.S. Army where I was a Chief Warrant Officer and an Army Aviator.  After leaving the military in 2005 I became a pilot at Memorial Hermann Life Flight.  I've always been a bit of a handy man and I thought I'd put that to use by becoming a Certified Home Inspector.  I did my training for this position through Champions School and on the job training with Certified Master Inspector Darrel Creacy.   I am a TREC licensed Real Estate Inspector and a member in good standing with Internachi (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors).


As a helicopter pilot I've always taken my position with great responsibility and paying attention to details to perform these duties.  As a Home Inspector I feel the same responsibility to my customers to ensure their home is what they think they are getting with no surprises after the purchase.

"The right inspection, right away"
