Mr Thornton was very helpful and informative. He was very pleasant and understanding. He answered (with explanations) all of my questions and we would recommend him to anyone needing a professional home inspector.
- J.F., July 2017
Jeff gave us the most thorough and exacting inspection report we have ever seen! He also included a variety of small details just for our information (such as the location of 'hidden' switches) that go above and beyond a mere inspection and add great value to his services. Thank you, Jeff! Highly recommended.
- G.F., June 2017
Jeff could not have done a better job. He responded to our timetable and scheduled a convenient time, showed up when he said, made a professional impression personally and with his equipment, was engaged, unhurried throughout the inspection, debriefed us thoroughly and provided the written report within hours. Further, he offered to respond to follow up questions (which he did) and said he was available if and when we closed on the house if we needed any information he might have. I have no suggestions for improvement, a rare thing for me and my wife and kids will attest.
- F.W., June 2017
He did thorough work and kept it simple in explaining it. He advised me what I could do myself and what probably needed a contractor. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who needed an inspection.
- E.W., June 2017
You did an awesome job. You saw things that I never saw that was wrong with the home I was interested in. Now I just hope the home owners fix them before I purchase this house.
- S.P., June 2017
Great job. Very thorough inspection.

- J.J., June 2017
Jeff is very professional and personable. He answered all of my questions to my satisfaction and full understanding of the issues at hand. He took his time and did a very through inspection of the home. He even took a look at 2 items for me that were not part of the required home inspection. Ron
- R.N., May 2017
Would definitely recommend Jeff and Assurance Home Services! The level of detail is awesome and allows us to really understand the property we are looking to purchase; both the good and bad. With the bad, we are able to create a Request for repair document right on the site, which includes his supporting documentation of issues. We "hope" this will be our next dream home. THANKS Jeff and Assurance Home Services!
- R.G., May 2017
I am very satisfied that Jeff did a top notch job. He inspected all areas of the house in great detail. His report is clear and to the point.

- M.B., February 2017
This is the second time Jeff inspected a home for me in 2017. The first home he saved me from buying which needed a new roof, major leak in bathroom causing inside wall mold, and electrical issues. Jeff is the family member you need to inspect your house and is 100% honest, complete and professional. He IS always on your team and has your back. He returns your call promptly - which is rare today. Best word to describe Jeff's work is awesome and priceless ! Finally, he reviews the report in lay terms for guys like me who did not get the mechanical and home repair gene. I am a tough grader and Jeff earned A+ both inspections with me. Rob in Dallas NC PS: I did buy the 2nd house !
- R.T., February 2017
The report was very therral. Thank you for pictures and the videos. It was a great help in showing us what we need to do in order to move into the home and feel safe!
- D.B., February 2017
Jeff was thorough and explained everything in detail. His report supported his findings and is easy to follow. I would definitely look at hiring Jeff again
- C.R., Charlotte NC, January 2017

- J.B., January 2017

I, as a former high school teacher and former contract negotiator for the USAF find it hard to score anyone without showing room for improvement, but I have to give it to Jeff. Wherein I would have normally given him a "9" to show room for improvement, but his detailed report pushed me to give him that Perfect "10". Thanks Jeff, for a Job Well Done! Charlene
