Mike Bowles T&M Property Inspections

Michael Bowles

President, T&M Property Inspections Inc.

Mike’s entire family has been involved in different areas of the trades for generations. From the time he was a child until he grew up there has always been some kind of tool in his hands. After graduating from high School, he decided to try a different route and spent some time in big business working for a fortune 500 company. During this time, he learned some great business mottos, best demonstrated practices, and even got a college education. After corporate business started to change in ways he felt were wrong, he decided to get back to his roots and left the corporate world to become a Union carpenter. Mike had an unfortunate career ending injury in the field and wound up having some down time which ended up being a few years. Having that much time to think about things made him hungry for success and he wanted to try and bring all of his experiences together.

This is the point in this story where T&M Property Inspections Inc. was created. It started with a slogan “Because your investment deserves protection” and is more than just a catchphrase, it shows that we genuinely care about our customers.  Mike believes that a family based company motto has certain feelings that are unexplained, and that friendly family approach and tradition continues today.  “When you work with us, you will be treated like a member of our family, and we will gladly and proudly help to ensure that your potential new purchase is safe, functional, and free of major defect.”

April Hill

Head of Operations at #1 Plumbing Company, Inc.

# 1 Plumbing Company, Inc. was started by Mike Lange, April Hill’s Fiancé, in 2013. Mike comes from a long line of plumbers. With his father and both brothers in this business, it gave Mike the experience and time to perfect his trade. He is now passing that trade down to his son’s and has truly created a family business.

Up until June of 2017, Mike had been running the company solo. Mike and April agreed that due to the rising healthcare costs associated with taking care of her disabled father, April would leave behind her corporate job of over 15 years and take over Operations at #1 Plumbing Company, Inc. April’s previous experience was in Accounting and Purchasing. Since leaving her job, April has been taking classes and seminars to learn more about her new Operational Roles. Her and Mike have been implementing processes and procedures to help streamline the company to run more effectively and efficiently.

April Hill grew up in a single parent household with her older brother Joe. What her late mother lacked in stability, she made up for with encouragement to become anything she wanted to be and instilled a sense of responsibility, humility, courage, persistence and confidence in her that continues forth today.
