We really appreciated Jon's flexibility and willingness to work around our fearful dog. Jon was very detailed and thorough in his report while being easy to work with and explained details in a way that was easy to understand. We will definitely use Jon in the future.
- T.W., Fletcher NC, February 2018
Jon did a great, thorough, and honest job with our home inspection. We're first-time home buyers, so it was very nice to have peace of mind provided by Jon throughout the process. He pointed out smaller details that I feel others may have missed along the way. On the day of inspection the roof was covered in snow, which allowed minimal visibility for defects - but nonetheless one was spotted. Jon went back a few days later to check out the electrical junction box (due to blockage on day of inspection) and also went back onto the roof to check it out in its entirety. He went the extra mile to ensure we were getting the full picture painted. We were very happy with the overall customer service provided by Jon - I can see easily why he is recommended!
- J.S., February 2018

This is the 2nd home we have purchased in the last 5 years. We had someone else do the 1st inspection and John Hettrick just completed our 2nd inspection. John was BY FAR the best inspector we have used. He was very thorough with his work, and then stayed with us to explain all of his findings. He made sure we, as buyers, understood any issues that he found with the home. I would recommend John to anyone that is needing a home inspection. -Bryan

Jon Hettrick is a true professional! He makes the home inspection process understandable by breaking it down with great example, using pictures and explaining it in terms even I understand! A house is a living entity that requires regular attention. When a buyer hires Mountain Home Inspections, that buyer will know what needs their new home has, and whether that attention is immediate, soon or eventually. I strongly recommend Jon Hettrick for your home inspection needs.
- A.P., November 2016
This is the first time that I utilized Jon, but it certainly will not be the last. First of all, he made the process seamless for my buyer client. The day of the home inspection and FHA super water test, he was prompt, cordial, efficient, knowledgeable and fully inspected every facet of the home including going in the crawl space and on the roof. He then thoroughly reviewed his findings with my client even immediately showing pictures on his laptop and discussing them in depth so that there was clear understanding of the issues as well as sharing utility cut-off information for a new buyer. The reports that followed were thorough and timely. I was impressed and would highly recommend him. Thank you.
- J.L., November 2016
Great job. Very thorough. Helpful and detailed report includes many pictures and videos.
- S.A., September 2016

You are a real pro who enjoys what you do, and we were fortunate to have the pleasure of working with you.

Jonathan, you are the very embodiment of a "fine toothed comb." Excellent service, thank you!

Jonathan has done several inspections for me during my efforts to purchase a home in Asheville. I could not be more pleased with the manner in which he conducted the inspections. He welcomed me to walk with him as he thoroughly inspected the homes. He listened to and answered all of my questions. The inspections were quickly followed up with clear, understandable written reports sent to me via email. Jonathan has a calm, courteous, trustworthy demeanor that makes interacting with him easy and pleasant. I highly recommend him as a home inspector.
- S.B., September 2016
Jonathan thank you for providing a complete and impeccable inspection report. It was a complete pleasure working with you.

I called for an inspection and Jonathan was able to schedule one for me within 3 days. I live in Miami so I was not able to be there for the inspection. We spoke on the phone afterwards and Jonathan went through the whole report with me. It was very easy and a pleasure working with Jonathan.

- J.R., Black Mountain NC, February 2016
Jonathan was extremely thorough in his inspection, and was able to explain the results in a clear, concise manner. As someone without a lot of knowledge into the inner workings of a home, I appreciated his patience and willingness to provide explanations and guidance in a level that I could understand. I would definitely recommend him to anyone considering purchasing a home.
- A.L., Asheville NC, December 2015
You were the most thorough inspector I have ever seen! We had a pre- inspection by a family member that has been a contractor for 30 years and he didn't find anywhere near the amount of issues you discovered. If it were not for you we would have purchased a home that would have severe foundation issues and potentially dangerous for my family. We are still searching for a new home and intend to use your skills again before buying. Thank you for being so professional and thorough! Sincerely the Holloway family.
- J.H., November 2015
The report had excellent meticulous detail with pictures to accompany the text.It is very helpful to me as well as to the seller and the HOA so that everybody knows what they have to do. Thank you,Rachael Diamond
- R.D., November 2015
John is worth every penny! From my first call, until I received my report - John was super friendly and so very helpful. After crawling all over a 1928 bungalow - he spent almost 2 hours going over the many issues with the house. I am afraid if I had not had such a great inspection, that I could have missed so many problems. I learned a lot from John. It's a lot easier to make a hard decision when you have all of the information. John will let you know what's going on. My realtor told me that she had never seen a report like Mountain Home's and that she hoped all of her clients would choose him.
- C.M., October 2015
Thanks so much Jonathan for inspecting another home for me. The buyers were thrilled with your inspection.
- J.W., October 2015
I have known Jon Hettrick personally for many years, and know him to be a person of intelligence and integrity. And when my real estate agent recommended Mountain Home Inspections, it was a no-brainer to retain his professional services. It was a pleasure to have him inspect an older property we were in the process of purchasing. Although Jon was very busy that week, he fit us into his schedule and did a very thorough job. In addition to his detailed report with many photos, he talked with me personally to summarize and discuss his findings. He answered our many questions readily and was very helpful in explaining his findings, helping us to sort and prioritize items that needed prompt attention, items that could wait, and items that were noteworthy but required no attention. I get the impression that he is genuinely interested in our best interest as we moved forward with our purchase. It is clear that Jon enjoys his work and takes pride in it.
- M.M., October 2015
Jonathan was thorough and informative. I especially appreciated the time and care spent with the customer and I in going over the findings immediately following the inspection. The time you spent with us was invaluable in moving forward with this transaction as there were a number of issues that came up. By spending the time to explain these items on sight we were able to better understand the severity of the issues (or lack there of) so we could make informed decisions about how to address them with the seller. I will not hesitate to recommend Jon to my customers and colleagues in the future.
- M.L., October 2015
Jonathan was thorough and informative. I especially appreciated the time and care taken to go over the inspection report with the buyer and I immediately following the inspection. This is invaluable to us as we move forward with the transaction. This helped us both to fully understand how the home functions and gave us on-sight perspective of the severity (or lack there of) of the issues that came up. I will be recommending Jon's services to my customers and colleagues without hesitation.

My buyers were really happy with the inspection that Jonathan did - and they really liked him! I will keep using him! thanks Jonathan!

Jonathan, We were very impressed by the inspection you performed for us our the home we are purchasing. Your report & photos were very through and you explained your findings to us which helped us make an informed decision on our purchase. You really "jumped thru hoops" to get us our radon reading quickly as we had some real time constraints. We highly recommend you to anyone looking for a quality inspector who communicates effectively and gets the job done. Thanks, Mary Winn
- M.W., June 2015
Jonathan, you did a good job of pointing our the things that weren't right with the house. You found some foundation problems that we have had looked at by experts and have ask the buyer to pay for since this wouldn't meet code and could cause serious problems in the future if not fixed. Without you finding this problem we may have been looking at some substantial additional expenses in preparing this house to be a vacation rental. Thanks for your help! Frank Dixon
- F.D., May 2015

Jonathan, I was so impressed by your extensive and thorough inspection of my parent's home when you inspected it for the potential Buyer. Adding to that, you were professional and personable at the same time. I have told several people about you and I will call you when/if I look to purchase a home in the future as I know I could totally trust your work and you. If anyone ever needs a reference for your company, I would be glad to speak to them. I have dealt with Home Inspectors a couple of times and you were far more thorough than any previous Inspector I have dealt with!
- A.R., March 2015
Johnathan was great. Very thorough and personable during the inspection. He also required the pest inspector to come revisit the home in fear of insect damage that was overlooked by the 3rd party pest inspector. I would highly recommend Johnathan to anyone considering buying a home in the Asheville area. He is top notch!! D.S.
- D.S., Candler NC, March 2015
