“I want people to be able to stake their reputation on my service”
Are you buying or selling a residence or commercial building?
Before you make that big real estate transaction you should have an inspection for peace of mind. Before you schedule an inspeciton, ask several questions:
- What is the inspector's experience? Many people new to the business talk about their construction experience. Find out how long they've been inspecting. Better, find out how many inspections they've actually done. My experience is that more than 3,000 inspections is necessary to really be comfortable inspecting all kinds of properties. To date, I've inspected over 11,000.
- Are they insured? We carry $300,000 coverage in the event of an error or omission.
- Who is their client? In simple words, the person who pays for our services is the client. While we cooperate with all parties to the transaction, our main focus is the buyer of the property.
- Do they have a privacy promise? Ours is that we will not sell or give away a client's information to 3rd party vendors including alarm companies, repair contractors, or warranty companies. Of course, if you need to find these types of companies, we have an approved list of top quality vendors.
Please call for our rates or to schedule an inspection.
Over 11,000 inspecitons since 1988.

Customers can Gauge service providers on the following 10 attributes. Not all attributes will apply to all service providers.
- Punctuality and Timely Completion: No one likes to wait or have large windows of time where service providers "might" get to them. No one likes the job to drag out because of the service provider's other projects or if it becomes apparent that the SP did not plan well.
- Workmanship: No one likes shoddy work, shortcuts, or tradesmen who take advantage of the customer's lack of awareness of what is good quality work.
- Responsibility: Many home owners do not wear shoes in their home and service providers should wear covers over their shoes when necessary. SP's should not travel into rooms that are not in the work scope. They should not use the toilet without asking. If the SP soils or breaks something, they should try to replace it.
- Professionalism: A Professional does not try to add unnecessary work to the contract. Nor do they try to make themselves look good by demeaning their competition or by discussing religion or politics. Professionals stand behind their price and make the experience pleasant with the customer.
- Cleans Up Daily: Customers like to know that each day when service providers leave the room, it is in a broom swept condition, meaning nothing laying around loose, dangerous, all cords are rolled up, and trash or debris is contained or removed. SP's should clean up at the end of the job.
- Friendly: No one wants to hear service providers' personal problems. The service provider should be pleasant to be around.
- Responsive to a Customer's Call: Call backs should be made in the same day and the service provider should do what was promised.
- Well Organized: Generally speaking, from start to finish, the process went well, any concerns were addressed or corrected, and the repair or project ended well with everyone satisfied.
- Hygiene: The service provider should look clean, smell clean, and wear shoe covers indoors when needed.
- Recommended: Would you recommend this individual or company?
