Istvan Zsako, Owner Istvan Zsako, Owner – I am a licensed Residential and Commercial Contractor who is a Certified Home Inspector by ASHI(American Society of Home Inspectors) and AHIT(American Home Inspection Training). With over 20 years of Home Building, Remodeling and Home Maintenance experience, you will receive the benefit of an experienced professional, in home construction, to assess the condition of your home purchase and evaluate existing problems that will need correction. I have had the pleasure to work with many excellent and reputable builders in Santa Fe such as Hulocker Homes, Casa Solterra Design, Denman Construction, Tierra Concepts, Baglione Custom Wood Works, Zachary’s Homes and Sierra West Design to name a few.

When I first came to Santa Fe, in 1998, I was drawn to the beautiful mountains overlooking Santa Fe. I could not stay away and decided to move to Santa Fe to live. I enjoy hiking and camping in the mountains, and canoe on the rivers and lakes nearby. Sitting around watching the sunsets never gets old. The mountain snow cover in the winter is great for going snowboarding and sledding. My latest construction project has been my wife and I remodeling an adobe home and converting the structure to use solar electricity and solar heated water for heating the home. The idea of using the suns energy to reduce the impact on the environment and reduce day to day living expenses has been an inspiration. Never get tired of the 300+sunny days a year in New Mexico!
