Hi @Vincent M

 

looking in Google Maps, I find you position 5 for >> Home Inspection Pompano Beach, FL

You certainly need to build up your overall authority, even for your business name.

 

When i searched your business name and area, your own website is not position 1.

As you build your website authority, business citations, local links and general brand awareness, your positions in both general search results and map results will improve.
