About A Better Look
In 1993, I obtained my General Contractors license but remained working for others until I could establish myself and step out on my own. During the boom of the mid to late 1990’s to 2006, we had a great run in SW Riverside County. We even added a C-53, swimming pool license. With the down turn in the building industry, we needed to re-invent ourselves. So I turned to what I know best, helping others make wise choices and protecting them in advance. The logical step was home inspecting. As a contractor, we are always critiquing, fine tuning and inspecting.
Make the Wise Choice
Due to our wide service area, we find many different issues due to the age of certain communities. From L.A. County and older O.C. and Inland Empire neighborhoods, we find galvanized water pipes and cast iron waste and drains, but in newer areas we have copper and ABS. Today, many of the new homes have what is called Aqua Pex water systems or non metallic plumbing. There is composition shingle or hot tar/rock roofs compared to the concrete tile in the Temecula/ Murrieta Valley. It is best to have an inspector that is knowledgeable in multiple aspects of the building codes and applications.
Why are inspections important? For the buyers protection. When just a quick, general over view of the property is done many small but important items can be overlooked. That is why you need to hire an inspector that is qualified and neutral, one that can inspect honestly, with out bias for either the buyer or seller. When we do an inspection we report the facts of the home as it sits on the day of the inspection.
We feel Placing Your Trust in A BETTER LOOK home inspections is one of the wisest moves you can make outside of choosing a Great R/E Agent and Lender. The home buying process can be stressful and emotional, make sure you surround yourself with knowledgeable, competent people to help guide you through the process.

Our Founder, George Mills
My name is George Mills, and I own and operate ‘A BETTER LOOK” home inspections. We are a full service, non invasive inspection company that prides itself on honest, thorough examinations of the property we are inspecting.
I have been in the production and custom home building industry for 37 years. Right after high school I took a job with a local builder where I spent the next 18 years as a framing subcontractor to some of the biggest developers in Southern California including Fieldstone Communities, The William Lyon Company and J.M. Peters.
I personally played a major role in the building of over 3000 homes all over Orange County and the Inland Empire, as well as many custom homes in the La Cresta, De Luz, and Temecula wine country.
Born and raised in sunny Southern California, Jeff married his high school sweetheart and has raised two beautiful children while working various retail jobs during the early 1990’s. Jeff started his real estate career in 1998 when he became an appraiser, eventually starting his own appraisal business serving Riverside and Orange counties. Jeff and his wife ran a successful appraisal business until the real estate market turned in the late 2000’s when they both turned to other careers.
2016 provided an opportunity to get back into the real estate game as an inspector with A Better Look and Jeff hasn’t looked back. An avid music lover, Jeff spends his free time playing music, working on guitars and fishing.
