- R.C., May 2017
Chris arrived early for our inspection, so early that he was able to conduct an exterior inspection prior to our arrival, which we were thankful for because it saved us from being out in the rainy weather. As for his professionalism, knowledge, and keen attention to detail we were EXTREMEMLY impressed! He went over everything with us, in detail, as we walked around the exterior and interior of our home. He answered all questions thoroughly and was very helpful with his opinions as to what issues we should address now and made us aware of what we should be looking for in the future. We will absolutely be referring all of our friends and colleagues to Chris for their future home inspections!
- J.F., Virginia Beach VA, May 2017
Chris was awesome! He was very professional. He accommodated my schedule. He was early, not on time but early, which was very important to me. He encouraged me to follow him throughout the inspection and answered all my questions throughout. He explained any issues he found to me on the spot along with stating the same in the provided Home Inspection Report. We couldn't have been happier with the service he provided us.

- P.M., Virginia Beach VA, April 2017
Chris is very knowledgeable and explains his findings. He has experience and knows the area.
- D.S., April 2017
Chris was objective when he shared his findings of the home. He did not try to sway us one way or another as to whether or not we should purchase the property, he just gave us the facts to empower us to make our own decision. He was thorough in his inspection of the property, and checked for things I would have never thought to (or known to!) He was timely, professional, and had the latest technological equipment to do his work, which heightened my confidence in his findings. I highly recommend Chris and will use him again for future inspections!
- S.T., Newport News VA, March 2017
Absolutely thorough and detailed, Chris has a gift for explaining his work to new home buyers in a way that they genuinely understand. His reports are extremely well-written and illustrated. His integration with technology - from testing tools and aerial photography, to his basic processes for scheduling and sending reports - is superior to any Home Inspector I've used. I recommend his services without hesitation. Thurman Williams Long & Foster Real Estate

While I was not there to meet Chris during the inspection, his report was very detailed. I feel that he was able to find a lot of things that I wouldn't have even thought about looking at. Not going to lie, I was very excited to get the report with overhead views of our new home Chris took with a drone. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone!
- J.T., March 2017
Chris was very professional and has a great attention to detail.
