@Jessica Kaklins You call around to licensed inspectors and contractors . Now just remember , nobody works for free , you will be paying a contractor and or an inspector to look at each and every house you put an offer on .
Word of mouth is probably the best way to meet any professional in any field. Ex: using a contractor that a friend had excellent experience with. Contractors whom are not Trustworthy will not stay in business long look at how long they've been in business. Look for licenses, insurance certificates etc.
