I reached out to Ms. Riou and it was the best decision I could have ever made. We run a center for children who have been victimized and we are required to have a safe space for them. Ms. Riou went above and beyond to make sure that we were up to code. She told us the very smallest things that most people would overlook but she advised us on how to make the corrections. She was on time and very detailed. She had no clue who we were nor why this was so important, but she was amazing and very thorough. I truly appreciate 1stResponse Home Inspections. Ms. Riou went above and beyond for our agency, and I truly appreciate her. If you are reading my review, please call her for your service needs. She is dependable and follows up with you quickly. Our agency is truly thankful and appreciate everything. Sincerely, Rose Grant-Robinson Executive Director Coastal Children's Advocacy Center

Lavonnia Cummings was a dream to work with. After having to make fixes that the inspector of my previous home in another market missed while i was buying, when i was selling i had to make repairs that should have been made prior to me buying. I wanted a thorough inspector that would make sure this never happened again and Lavonnia and 1st Response was the right team for the task at hand. Her keen eye and sound observations made this process a breeze. I absolutely would recommend her for anyone looking to buy their next home!

Ms. Cummings (and her associate) were very professional: prompt, equipped, knowledgeable, efficient, thorough. She understood our apprehension about some of the conditions she noted, and offered explanations that eased our apprehension. She welcomed our numerous, sometimes repetitive, questions and responded candidly in laymen's terms. Ms. Cummings' inspection reports were detailed, instructional and immediately comprehensible; the detailed report included photos/graphics that precisely highlighted each area of inspection as well as its status. Ms. Cummings' temperament is well-suited to her job; she clearly enjoys her work. We would recommend Ms. Cummings' services without reservation.

Great experience with lavonnia, she was on time and very friendly. She took her time inspecting outside the home and then moved through each room showing different things and educating me on different appliances around the home to keep them up to date. Overall it took about 1.5 hour and I received my report later that day. Her report was very clearly written out with photos and arrows showing any areas of concern or attention was needed. I would highly recommend lavonnia
- N.H., March 2020
Lavonnia is a professional, thorough, detailed inspector. She worked hard to identify items on our new constructed home and had our best interest in mind. I would strongly recommend 1st Response! Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. A. Smith
- G.S., February 2020
We are very glad that we went ahead and got this inspection. Even though we thought we inspected pretty well, Lavonnia found things we didn't even know to look for. Both ladies were very nice, explained everything and answered all questions. We will definitely be recommending 1st Response and appreciate how they respond so fast and are so thorough!! Thank you!!
- J.S., February 2020
Lavonnia provided a great inspection for our new home. I was originally not going to have an inspection, due to it being a new build. She found multiple items that needed to corrected, such as sealing issues and missing paint on the house. The builders are correcting everything she found and saved us money on fixes we would have had to do within the first year. Having bought houses previously, other inspectors found less items on a old home than she did on a new one. I feel like she took time and cared to make sure she provided a great report to us. I feel like other inspectors I've had just rushed through the process. During our walkthrough with the builders, they made a comment to my wife that the home inspector did a good job. Thank you!
- S.S., November 2019
Thanks so much for being a part of our new home purchasing experience. We really appreciate your professionalism and will be recommending you to other new home buyers in the future.

Conducted a great an thorough inspection. She was very careful to make sure she did not skip, or miss anything, and aside from just the "X's and O's" of the report, she also took the time to break things down for me, and give me her personal opinion about the property as well. It was very helpful in my decision to move forward confidently. Have already, and would definitely recommend her to anyone. I plan on using her again in the future also

She has far exceeded my expectations of this home inspection. There was not one thing Mrs. Cummings could have done better. She was awsome. I feel like i can do some home inspections because of all of the knowlege she laid out, she gets 10+ 10+ 10 in my book.

- L.F., April 2018
I actually followed her as she did the inspection (A good way to get to know the house you are about to buy). She did a great job: sort of like an education about the house (of what's wrong and what might be wrong in the future).
- B.T., April 2018
Lavonnia was very friendly, efficient, and thorough. She arranged and did the inspection quickly, encouraged me to be there so she could go over her findings with me, answered all my questions, and then produced her final report in less than 24 hours.
