Mario Neira

A Strategic and Diligent Home Inspector

Mario Neira has many qualifications and is currently working on adding another one to his achievements: the InterNACHI Certified Master Inspector (CMI) certification. He is the owner and operator of ABIR Inspections and has worked in the industry for over 20 years, gaining knowledge about residential home and commercial property inspection, construction, remodeling, repair, and business ownership. He has been a strategic thinker his entire life, and he uses this to his clients’ advantage during the approximately 5-7 hours that he spends thoroughly inspecting a building’s components for defects and explaining his findings.

Outside of his career, Mario enjoys spending time with his family, reading Time and Forbes Magazines, going to the gym, playing Billiards, bowling, kiteboarding, and participating in water sports.

Experience and Background


Mario has spent 25 years consulting with clients about both residential and commercial construction projects, navigating them through project planning, development, construction bids, project inspections, and new construction inspections. He has also been called as an expert witness in legal cases involving construction and building inspection because of his reputation and knowledge in the industry. This experience makes him an incredible home inspector who is able to answer most questions that come his way, handle every situation with professionalism, and think fast on his feet when presented with a problem.


For a few years, Mario founded and operated a modern fencing and decking business that also handled remodeling, handyman work, and construction. During this time, he performed multiple repairs for Agents of Coldwell Banker Real Estate in South Tampa, specifically addressing issues and defects listed in their inspection reports. This hands-on experience means that, as a home inspector, Mario can do more than just find the defects in the building – he can tell his clients how to best approach most repairs.


Towards the end of Mario’s time in high school, he began working part-time for a general contractor. He was promoted within his first year to a project supervisor and eventually started working full-time for contractor Don McLain.
