Having the opportunity to work with Artie Collins for our home inspection was enjoyable. His knowledge of home, termite, and pool inspections helped us understand what we needed to know for the home purchase. We highly recommend Art for anyone who wants straight forward and fair reporting. We would use Art again should the opportunity present itself.

I have been selling real estate in AZ since 1984. I have used Artie for years and have tried other inspectors when he is on vacation and their work does not even compare! For instance, Artie will test every single outlet in a home to verify it works, but the state only mandates they have to test 1 or 2 outlets. The state also says they don't have to pull furniture away if it's blocking an outlet. Therefore, most inspectors will not test more than 1 outlet. This cost me hundreds of dollars when over 8 outlets did not work in a home when I didn't even know they weren't tested. I will always wait for Artie to return before booking with another inspector.

Artie is a great inspector!
- L.O., November 2016
I have been using Artie for a few years now and I can't convey enough how thorough he is. I love his reports due to how precise they are, how each section is laid out, and his comments as well. A seller is not responsible for fixing everything an inspector finds so it helps to add those notes so the buyer can refer back on how/what to do to fix those items. I've seen many other inspector reports but they don't come close to Artie's!
- S.D., Goodyear AZ, November 2016
Very nice and does not rush. Art was very thorough with his explanations on issues and when asked gave estimated cost to repair or fix.
- M.W., August 2016

- V.K., April 2016
Artie was very friendly and pleasant to be around. He conducted his inspection in a very professional manner and was thorough. The report was immediate and explained in an easy to understand manner. I will defiantly use Artie's services in the future.

Once again, Artie came through.. and on short notice! Artie is my number one resource for a quality home inspection. This time, my client only had a 4 day inspection period and Artie was able to come on the same day that we called him. Another great experience and satisfied client!
- N.E., March 2013
Artie always takes his time to answer every question my client's have. He is thorough, friendly and extremely professional. I use him whenever I can!
- N.E., February 2013
Artie has a number of qualities that I found superior to his competition. Neither my wife or I are Engineers, but he explained his findings in a way that was understandable to us, and free of jargon designed to intimidate rather than inform. His demeanor is very pleasant, and he made us feel very comfortable with him from our introduction. He welcomed questions, sometimes asked repeatedly to make sure that we understood what we were asking as well as to clarify his responses. His answers were direct, and often enhanced by opening things, or showing as photographs. He is a great subject matter expert, who knows the home inspection and maintenance business, and is willing to share his knowledge. He is very engaging, interpersonal, open, professional, and committed to meeting or exceeding the expectations and needs of his customers. Purchasing a house is a major decision for my wife and me, and he made us feel knowledgeable about the nuts and bolts of our new home. WOW!!!!!!!!!!
- J.R., Sackets Harbor NY, December 2012

I would DEFINITELY suggest Artie Collins for anyone in need of home inspection services!
