The Dancer & Co.


At Dancer & Co., we help people find their way home. Home is that place where you and your family should feel safe, unplug, unwind, connect and be together. Knowing this makes our job even more meaningful.

Our inspectors are a dedicated group of individuals that were chosen because they care. By creating bespoke reports that help to tell the story of the home for that short moment in time while they are there, Dancer & Co. has raised the standard for home inspections. 

No matter if you are buying or selling in Frederick, Howard, Montgomery, Carroll or Anne Arundel County in MD, Northern VA, Washington DC, Delaware, Charles Town WV or FL our inspectors aspire to give you an experience that will stay with you forever and are ready to support you every step of the way in the inspection process. No question is too small, so ask away while you are at the inspection, enjoy and soak in the experience and may your new home be filled with many years of love and happiness.
