RFE Investment Partners has made an undisclosed investment in Max Home Inspections, a provider of home inspections and ancillary post-close services in Florida and Texas.
Founded in 2016 and headquartered in Davie, Florida, Max Home also provides services that include pest control, repair and renovation, and preventative maintenance services.
In connection with the investment, Scott Swayze will become CEO, while co-founder Silvia Rossbach will continue to guide the company in an advisory role as a board member.
Shawn and Silvia Rossbach and Mitch Feinglas will maintain a significant ownership stake in the company alongside RFE. Moving forward, Max Home’s headquarters will relocate to Austin, Texas.
On the transaction, Swayze said in a public statement: “I am excited to partner with RFE given their long successful track record of growing home service companies through both organic avenues as well as the execution of an aggressive add-on acquisition campaign. I believe this partnership will enable Max Home to transform the home inspection landscape by becoming the ‘employer of choice’ for new hires as well as the ‘partner of choice’ for all inspection companies who see the value in joining the Max Home family to enjoy our tools, technology, suite of offerings, capital base, and employee-first culture.”
Michael Rubel, managing director at RFE, expressed considerable enthusiasm over his firm’s investment in Max Home. “The fragmented nature of the home inspection industry presents exciting opportunities, and Max Home has built a unique approach to the market through a diversified and scalable model,” he said in a public statement.
Founded in 1980, RFE invests from the lower middle market to fully professionalized and market-leading middle-market companies.
