I've been a real estate broker since 1986 and for the past 20+ years I have only been recommending John, Scott, Bill and Paul from Cornell & Associates to do home inspections (Water & Radon Tests) for all of my Buyers. And, all of my past home buyers (hundreds of them over the years) have been totally satisfied with the results of the home inspection which includes a very detailed Online and/or PDF report with photos, detailed descriptions of all of the issues they found during the home inspection. Plus, the average report is 50+ pages long because it includes information about all of the major systems in the home or condo and how to maintain them over the years of ownership!! The home inspectors with Paul Cornell & Associates are the best that I have experienced in my 30+ years of being a real estate broker in Massachusetts. Nick Rioux, The Buyer's Broker Co.

John Gallagher was affable, knowledgeable and extremely detail. Not only was he extremely thorough in inspecting the house of our dreams, but he also took the time to explain how the house functioned in great (and interesting) detail. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs their house inspected by a competent, likable person.

So knowledgeable and thorough and a pleasure to work with, I would recommend John for any home inspection.

John was exceptional, professional, and honest. I will recommend him to all of my friends and hope to do business again with him in the future.

John was great. Clearly knew his stuff. He exposed a few potential issues that will now be taken care of by the developer that I would not have know about with out him.

John is extremely professional, and thorough with his inspections. I've used him several times this year, and he is very consistent with how he evaluates a home.

This is the second time we have used Paul Cornell and Associates. These guys are great. John was thorough and explained everything to us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. In fact my friend is buying a house and already mentioned John to him.
- D.R., Natick MA, April 2014
Excellent job. Exactly what I expected to get from an associate of Paul Cornell. This is the third home of mine that you have inspected (since 1993) and I haven't been dissappointed yet. One more to go... Cheers, Dan Murphy

John was on time in fact early for the inspections we had together on Saturday. He was very professional and thorough. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
- L.N., March 2014
Very very thorough and easy to communicate with. Detailed without being confusing. Clear about the impact of problems and whether he could offer an assessment of the risk of more domain specific issues, like foundation cracks. In the case where he couldn't, he was very direct about the kind of inspector/engineer that should be consulted for an evaluation.
- J.F., Billerica MA, February 2014
John was very thorough and knowledgeable. He caught some major issues that could have cost us money in the future. Very courteous and professional as well.

Thanks so much for the incredibly detailed home inspection and report. It will allow us to correct the things that need immediate attention, while providing us with a road map for what needs to addressed in the near future. This is immeasurably valuable to us as new homeowners.
- C.V., Wellesley MA, March 2013
John was thorough and made sure I understood everything before leaving the property. He arrived early to make sure he had comprehensive notes and was therefore able to start walking me around and giving me valuable information about the property immediately. I would highly recommend him for anyone's home inspection!
