I have been working with Russell for 10 years. He is always professional, prompt and detail oriented. I would recommend him and trust his knowledge and expertise.

Russell did such a great job inspecting my home. He was thorough and provided explanations of every image taken so I could be reassured the criticality of each inspection result. I would highly recommend him!
- K.C., April 2021
Thanks for the detailed report. Appreciate your timeliness and getting the job done for us!

Russell came highly recommended by our realtor and was "as advertised"! Very responsive, and flexible as our inspection date had changed multiple times. I would highly recommend Russell for anyone looking for inspection services. Anthony Merlino & Family

Russell was truly a professional. Got started right away, kept me in the loop the entire time. Explained details, the report was accurate and very thorough!! If I ever need another home inspection done, he's the person I'm calling!
- P.K., April 2021
Russell was amazing. He took his time to go over every part of our house we plan to purchase. He kept us involved the entire time when he found something concerning and made sure we understood the time frame in which it'd need to be addressed once we were the official owners. We would 100% recommend him to any person looking to buy a home.
- J.S., April 2021
Came highly recommended from our real estate agent. He did not disappoint! Would use him again in the future.
- D.Q., March 2021

There are so many people to meet and so many things to take care of when in the process of buying a home. Russell Boltin at Cardinal Home Inspections came highly recommended to me thru my realtor. At first I was like, ok another contact. But when the home inspection appointment came and I personally met him, I immediately was able to discern why he came highly recommended. Not only did he arrive a little ahead of schedule (which I was happy about), but he exuded a top level of professionalism. He went right to work and he had different gadgets with him to measure things that may not be able to be seen with the regular eye. I didn’t hover over him as I wanted to get some measurements while at the house, but I did note that he was very intentional and thorough with what he was doing. He definitely knows his craft, but had a pleasant personality showing exceptional people skills. He was very relatable and spoke in a very understanding way. He is definitely smart and knowledgeable. He spoke with me and went over a summary of what he did and what he found. He was patient and answered all my questions. Within 24 hours I had a pdf report that included photos, findings, and color coded recommendations for the different levels of needed repairs. It was clear, concise, informative, user friendly, and very understandable. I feel like I have a very valuable document and clear understanding of the current condition of the house. Having this lets me be able to make needed decisions and negotiations. I’m so happy with this experience and feel blessed that such a high quality inspector was put in my path. I found absolutely nothing to complain about in this experience. I highly, highly recommend this company/inspector. I support small businesses in times like these, over large corporations where I may not get to speak to the same person twice. Please strongly consider hiring Cardinal Home Inspections and Russell will be a fantastic resource to your advantage. I rate as many stars as possible in my review. THANKS FOR BEING AWESOME!

The final Inspection report was very thorough. I appreciate the attention to detail. Given that we are not able to be at the home site during it's construction, this report gives us peace of mind that our home was properly built.

Russell is the best. He actually did two inspections for me, with the first resulting in me not buying the house due to the significant issues he uncovered.

Russell and his partner were extremely thorough. They walked the roof and the crawl space. Took them 2.5 hours and they worked well together. Russell thoroughly summarized the issues and told us what was significant versus what was "normal" wear and tear. He left a card in case we had other questions. I have purchased many investment homes and Russell was knowledgeable, professional and personable. Excellent job!
- M.N., January 2018
Russ, Thanks very much for your detailed work on the inspection. I really appreciate it. It was a pleasure to meet you and work with you, Paul
- P.L., Mount Pleasant SC, January 2018
Though I am a first time home buyer and have never ordered a home inspection prior to now, my realtor (Pam Zibura with Agent owned Realty) and CardinalHI worked together in getting the home inspection done in a very timely and efficient manner. The inspector was very detailed in his findings and pointed out some areas that should required immediate attention. I found the report to be extremely satisfactory. It provides me with what I feel is needed to safely maintain this home as I plan to live here for many years to come. Thank you Russell.
- M.T., November 2017
Did a great job of answering all my questions!
- P.M., Greenville SC, November 2017
Awesome inspection, very thorough and detailed. He explained everything clearly without alarming us.
- P.C., November 2017
I just want to say how great Russell was. He was very professional, thorough, and explain everything he found. He pointed out all the areas of concerns he had and went over his report onsite with me when he completed his report. I'm a GM for a HVAC service company in Boston and understand how difficult it is to find works like Russell. Thank you
- R.S., November 2017
Me and my husband were clueless when finding a home inspector for the house we were considering buying. Our realtor gave us several recommendations and we went with Russell Boltin and we did not regret that decision! He was so thorough and professional. The report was outstanding. He combed the property with a fine tooth comb! If we do not purchase this house, and find another- we will go with Russell Boltin again! I HIGHLY recommend him.
- A.D., October 2017
Russell could not have been any more thorough or professional!! I was nervous to select a home inspector company without any recommendations, but he will forever have mine. I could not be happier with the services provided.
- A.D., October 2017
Very helpful and thorough inspection. Identified the critical items that needed to be discussed with the seller.
