Michael Shaver responded to my request for an inspection promptly, professionally, and helpful. He conducted a very thorough inspection, with understandable notes, pictures, and explanations. I am so grateful for his professional and friendly manner, which inspired confidence and peace of mind. I believe from his inspection report, that I have a much better knowledge on the condition of the property. So, I would absolutely recommend Michael Shaver as a home inspector, I greatly appreciate the great job that he did!!!

I was impressed with how thorough the inspection was! In particular, I was thankful for the thorough inspection of the electrical system / breaker box, beyond what other inspectors look at - and I found out it is due to Mr. Shaver's background in the power industry prior to being an inspector! Thank you for catching additional safety issues, Mr. Shaver!

Mike did an amazing job! He was prompt, professional and very courteous. I can not recommend Mike Shaver more highly.
- C.J., CALHOUN KY, October 2019
Mike was very thorough in his inspection and did not sugar-coat anything. He truly did my inspection as if he was the one looking to buy the property. I would not hesitate to use his services again.

Mr. Shaver was the most professional and thorough home inspector I've ever hired. He spent extra time explaining in
great detail his findings and what would be necessary to repair or replace any discrepancies. I will continue to use his services in the future. I highly recommend Mr. Shaver.

Thank you Mike, for your inspection of two properties for me in the past few days. Not only did your inspection reports give me vital information in making my home buying decision but your knowledge and keen eye in this field made me feel so much better! I will never ever buy a home without an inskdctionfirst, and you?re the guy I?ll call every time!! Thank you for coming out so quickly when I was in a time pinch and thank you too for giving me a discount on the second inspection when the first home contract fell thru. I don?t know any inspectors that would have done that. Closing is in a few days, and I feel so much better having your report. Thanks again!!

My experience and satisfaction was very positive...Mike took his time conducting his inspection of the home that I was purchasing. Mike was very detailed, thorough, professional, customer focused and very knowledgeable. Mike's professionalism and approach made you feel like he was inspecting the house as if he was going to buy it...it was great having him in our corner. I will use Buy Wise again and will refer Mike to anyone that is in the market to buy a home.
- B.C., June 2018
Mike was wonderful throughout the entire process and gave a far more thorough examination of the house than we were expecting. He told us all of the issues and even gave us a personal recommendation that we trust completely. We will be using him in the future and telling everyone we know about his service. He is timely, professional, and trustworthy. Thanks Mike!
- D.H., April 2018
Definitely knowledgeable in his job. Pointed out alot of things that hadn't been seen or thought of. Some of the best money I spent when looking at a renovation project. All around great guy to work with!
- N.L., April 2018
I was very pleased with the service I got from Michael, unbelievably professional very detailed as well as easy to understand report. I would highly recommend BUY WISE HOME INSPECTIONS to my family and friends.
- D.C., April 2018
Mike is always professional and works very well with the clients. I trust that Mike will thoroughly inspect the property and take time to explain any concerns to the buyer. I highly recommend Mike with Buy Wise.
- J.R., Owensboro KY, November 2017
We got a much more thorough inspection than we expected and are very satisfied! We felt comfortable asking questions and feel that all of those questions were answered. We feel much more comfortable purchasing the home we were interested in now that we know there were no major problems and are well aware of the minor problems, most of which we hadn't noticed when we looked at the house the previous two times. I would recommend Mr. Shaver to my family and friends! If you want an inspector that won't cut corners or rush through the process, Mike Shaver is your guy!
- B.L., October 2017
Mike, you did a very good job in a very professional manner. You pointed out items that I missed in my inspection. You explained everything in easy to understand terms so me (buyer) and the seller both understood. Thanks for the inspection on a short notice. GOOD JOB!!!
- D.H., Santa Claus IN, August 2017
Well worth the money you save on repairs. I missed some of the most expensive repairs. Thanks for a good job.
- J.T., Owensboro KY, August 2017
He is very detailed and compassionate for first time homebuyers.
- J.A., Owensboro KY, April 2017
With all of the excitement that comes along with home shopping, I believe many people overlook the importance of having their future home inspected before committing. Many people trust their "buddy" agent or the seller's agent to provide the knowledge they need regarding the structure, wiring , etc. I know couples in my age group often rely on their father or grandfather (who has always been had with a hammer) to "okay" the property for them. People, YOU NEED A CERTIFIED HOME INSPECTOR. Now, I have bought and sold many homes , and will tell you first hand- not all inspectors are created equal. Many home inspectors lack the knowledge, equipment and integrity to do a thorough job in protecting the buyer. Michael Shaver is one you can trust. He is punctual, honest, thorough knowledgeable and prepared. He will treat you like family and inspect the home as if he were the one buying it. I couldn't imagine hiring anyone else to inspect my prospective properties! Thanks for the wonderful work, Mike!!
- J.B., Maceo KY, January 2017
he was extremely though. He saw problems the owner didn't know existed. we would use him again. Great job.
- D.M., Hawesville KY, May 2016
Very thorough and efficient inspector. Would definitely recommend him for anyone buying a home. He has your best interest in mind.
- K.H., Owensboro KY, May 2016
The home inspection was by far the most complete and open home inspection process our family has ever been involved with as home buyers. We have purchased and sold three homes over the years while serving in the military. In one of our previous purchases our family incurred significant financial loss in order to make the home safe and sound for our family. These issues should have been easily caught by a knowledgeable and competent home inspector. We now know how important a proper home inspection is to a family undertaking a large financial investment to provide a safe environment for their family. Therefore, this should never be a check the box process in order to make a quick buck, or just to enable the purchase of a home to move forward. We will certainly use Mike in any future home inspections and highly recommend his "Buy Wise" business practices to anyone in need of a honest and thorough home inspection.

Mike was both professional and easy to do business with; saving us time and money by coordinating our termite inspection. His inspection report far exceeded my expectations. It was very thorough and contained several high resolution photos highlighting areas of inspection and/or potential problems. I would use Mike again and certainly recommend his services to others.
- C.A., Huntersville NC, April 2016
While I'm knowledgeable about homes and their systems, I decided I would hire a Home Inspector for this purchase. Michael Shaver was highly recommended to us. I met Michael at the home to be inspected. I learned things about the home that I would not have known about if I had viewed the house on my own. Michael is knowledgeable about construction and the mechanical systems of the house. He gladly explains issues (and nonissue) with the home. His price is reasonable and his desire to do a good job is apparent.
- M.K., April 2016
Mike was very thorough in his inspection and made himself available for any questions we had. His knowledge and expertise brought peace of mind with the purchase of the property. We were going to purchase another property but his honest evaluation prevented us from entering a money pit. We used him again for another home shortly after the deal fell through and he did the inspection free of charge! This is the third home we have bought and Mike went above and beyond in providing exceptional service compared to past inspectors we have used. If we ever need an inspection again, we will definitely use him. We highly recommend him for your home inspection. He provides quality, efficient and honest inspections.

Michael Shaver did an outstanding job on our home inspection. Not only was he accommodating to the schedules of the buyers and the sellers, he also provided a very thorough, detailed, and professional report.

Mike was very thorough, in my opinion, in his inspection. He gave detailed information back to us, including very good pictures, which will be very helpful in making repairs. And the price for the inspection was right as well. Thank you for your time and effort, Mike.
- K.W., Owensboro KY, April 2015
I have been through several home inspections, in several different states, and I have never seen anyone be as meticulous and thorough as Mike Shaver. He took his time and checked out every detail of the new home I am buying, and he took the time to point out specifics and to clearly explain them to me (without talking down to me, or over my head!) Extremely personable and completely professional! I highly recommend him and would use his services again in a heartbeat!
- J.M., Owensboro KY, April 2015

Thank you for the impeccable service! We will definitely be using his services in the future!
- M.L., Owensboro KY, March 2015
Mike Shaver did an extraordinary job. He's really hardcore when it comes to getting down and dirty in crawlspaces and inspecting roofs. He's meticulous, experienced, and I'm going to recommend him to everyone I know.
- J.B., Owensboro KY, March 2015
Mike from Buy Wise was very knowledgable and informative. He arrived on time,was courteous, and respectful of myself and my property. He answered all questions I had at the time of inspection and if there was anything he was unsure of he quickly got me an answer. Mike did a very thorough inspection and got a detailed report to me in a timely matter. I would recommend his service to anyone.
- C.H., Philpot KY, March 2015
Mike was informative and took time to explain to my wife and I what the inspection showed and what it meant as home buyers.
