Meet Your Inspector

Kurvin Gordon

With over 23 years of construction experience, Ugly Duckling Inspections is here to provide superior service and knowledgeable advice that helps achieve the real estate goals of our clients throughout the Williamette valley.

Our founder’s first summer job was working in construction at 15. Growing in knowledge and skill he builds his first company at 23 building custom tradeshow booths. His second company was a test of business acumen building custom homes in Pinedale Wy during the “great recession”.
Pursuing his passion of giving back to the community, he helped the residents of Idaho and Texas navigate large-scale disasters and emergencies. When his mission was finished he took that dedication and build a multi-faceted company in Texas that serviced all aspects of home buying and investing.

Kurvin brings that same passion and dedication to Ugly Duckling Inspections. Building a team of highly skilled inspectors that help homeowners, or soon-to-be, maintain and grow their biggest assets, their home.

“I help them turn Ugly Ducklings into Swans.”

– Kurvin


We will be people and a company that is trusted in the marketplace – one that stands for integrity and sets a standard for it, inspiring others to be always truthful and fair as principles held higher than profit and traditional business goals.

Building Long Term Relationships

We are loyal to our clients, ensuring their needs are met first, and we are there for them every step of the way.


When you do good things for other people, things that often they cannot do for themselves, then other people do good things for you. No matter how you name it or explain it, goodness creates goodwill and it is contagious.

Mission for Excellence

We demand more of ourselves than our clients. A confident pursuit of the highest quality.


To devote yourself to becoming really good at it, you have to believe that there is a quality to it, that this thing you are doing is worth all the effort it takes to get it right, something about it fascinates you, and you love it in a way that relentlessly seeks creativity and excellence.
