Why hire me

I am a service business, I discovered early on that the most effective strategy for keeping you happy is to deliver a superior product, be an excellent communicator and share my knowledge.
For me, this means not using technical terms or industry jargon that will confuse you but instead to explain things in an easy to understand format as I would want to hear them. It also means taking the time to listen to your comments and questions and see if your uneasy or skeptical or concerned and walk you thru it with you
I built my business on the promise of superior service – I will not skip corners, I will exceed the national standards in my industry and share my knowledge with you.
I will inspect your home the same way I would inspect my own home and I will treat you like family. I've always done business this way and my client satisfaction rate is very high as a result.

Very prompt in responding to inspection requests and detailed oriented in the report. John was very friendly and took the time to explain inspection findings.

John did an excellent job! He took the time to explain what he found. The report is well documented and organized. I took off work and drove from Columbia to meet with John and he made sure it was time well spent!

I was extremely impressed with John's thoroughness and professionalism in conducting the house inspection. He crawled over, under and around everything to evaluate every potential area of concern and did not cut any corners. In addition, he generated the report very quickly and 71 pages later an all-encompassing report was available. I would recommend him to anyone.

I was considering buying a 100+ year old house, knowing it would require some work. Thank goodness John inspected it! He found major electrical, foundation, plumbing and other problems that two walk-throughs would never have revealed. He explained everything by phone that he would inspect and answered many questions. He inspected the property within a week and submitted a very detailed report. The few hundred dollars I spent for an outstanding report probably saved me many tens of thousands of dollars on major repairs. Hire him! --Susan B.

John did a very professional and efficient inspection for us. When I made my first call to him, he explained the process very clearly. He responded quickly to emails. We had the inspection report in less than 48 hours of the initial phone conversation. Great service and very easy to work with. Thank you John!

I called John and ordered an inspection on a condo we have under contract. He talked to me prior to the inspection to see if I had any specific areas of concerns to ensure he addressed those things in detail. He conducted the inspection in just 2 days after I requested and in plenty of time to beat the required inspection completion date. He provided a typed up report including numerous digital pictures on the same date as he made the inspection. John clearly has a critical eye for detail. I called him after that to ask some questions where I wasn't sure and he talked to me for 20 minutes and answered all my questions and then some. I coudnt be happier with his services and would highly recommend him to anyone needing an inspection. It was money well spent.

John drove from Lake of the Ozarks to Springfield on a Sunday to accommodate our schedule. John was very thorough in his inspection. He did not rush through any part of the job, and offered some affordable options to address and correct the areas of concern. He showed us pictures before he left and included them in his report for us. It is obvious he likes what he does, and he is honest about his results. If we need a full home inspection, we will definitely call John.

Very knowledgable . I have purchased several homes and John has been the best inspector I've hired yet.
- R.H., April 2015
Thank you John for taking the time to help me measure out the rooms and check that the washer and dryer work. It was really nice of you to explain issues with the home and offer suggestions for reasonable fixes for those issues. I definitely feel a lot more at ease purchasing this home now. Thank you, Crystal.
- C.L., April 2015
I have never used an inspector before. I needed one for the purchase of a residence. I hit a grand slam finding John. He was the quintessential inspector... precise, knowledgeable and showed true professionalism. Thank You so much. Will defiantly use John in the future.
