About Us - Our History
In the early 1980’s, company founder J Reilly worked on commercial highrise and residential home construction in CT and NY with some of the largest construction companies at that time, including: Franford Construction of New Haven, Banton Construction of West Haven and Leviere of Wallingford, CT.
Mr. Reilly then founded Shannon Construction in 1985; it was later incorporated and renamed Shannon Group and Associates, LLC and was located in New Haven, CT. In the boom years that followed, he led the company into the Real Estate support arena and broadened the company offerings to include the following services: relocation inspection services, pest inspection and control, environmental inspections, and historical restoration consulting and services.
The company was reorganized in 2002 to focus solely on real estate support as demand for thorough and high-quality inspections grew. Due to his knowledge and expertise in several areas including commercial property, estates and antique homes, Mr. Reilly was also sought out by local certification organizations to educate and train field inspectors and real estate professionals. Since then, Mr. Reilly developed a model for high-tech team inspections which enable the company to offer home buyers same-day inspection reporting in digital and printed format.
The Reilly Group remains a strong local presence offering home inspection services to home buyers and sellers as well as litigation and foreclosure inspection services to mortgage lenders, brokers, and law firms. In 2007, the Reilly Group began offering Energy Audits to help home owners lower energy costs.
As always, we don’t follow the standard, we set it.
