John was so professional and detailed in his work. I would recommend him to anyone needing home inspection services. He’s my guy!
- D.S., May 2021
John was very informative during our inspection. We were nervous about inspecting an older home (approx. 70yrs old) that still had many older major systems in place and he was very thorough through every single one. He went over everything in detail at the end of the inspection and the report we received was just as detailed. We feel a lot better, more confident, about pursuing ownership of an older house now that we have some insight to these major systems and their wear and tear. Thanks a bunch, John!! We appreciate you!!

Awesome ! John Wait is the ultimate professional. He is timely, courteous, thorough and very professional. His reports are informative, easy to read and very instructive with plenty of useful photos. His first inspection gave me peace of mind about the work needed on my house & serves as a compass to guide me. His second inspection gave me invaluable information about the quality of work done/ not done on my house. He's a life saver. I'll ask for him to come out again to re-inspect behind other contractors, to help me see and understand what was or wasn't done. Thanks John! I've already recommended him to friends.
