George is an awesome inspector! He moves quickly and notices so many details, but always has time to slow down and answer questions when I didn't understand something. He's professional, but also personable, getting to know you a bit through the process. George's report was extremely thorough and we will be using his report to make repairs on our future home. A definite 10 for George!

No comments, awesome job. I'm sure you saved us a boatload of money.
- P.R., Chicago IL, January 2019
A detailed and honest inspection. George is a personable and up front inspector to deal with. I would do business with him again.
- P.T., January 2019
Hi George, I am passing along a concern the listing agent Gary had when fulfilling the repairs in the attic for 614 Stone Brook Ct. in Elk Grove Village. Because a certain vent was not marked, the HVAC could not easily identify which vent was crushed and needed straightening. This caused confusion and time loss, resulting in the wrong vent being addressed. This caused the need to call the HVAC back after the re-inspection for a single repair, something the listing agent was reluctant to do. Gary suggests that a method, such as stickers, be used to identify such repairs. He thinks this would have avoided the confusion and time caught up in requesting a 2nd service call for a single, misidentified repair. Thanks, Karen Rhine
- K.R., January 2019
George was great to work with. He wasthorough and patient!!! His report will be an excellent reference tool for future repairs and his photos were clear and crisp.

Dealing with George was a great experience. He went above and beyond my expectations. George offered advice that was beyond the scope of testing the air quality in my home by suggesting other vendors and solutions to my problem. I now have a valuable resource on which to draw in the future. Thank you.
- T.G., October 2018
George was very punctual (made a Saturday appointment a week out, and he was there early), thorough (created a 135 page report--with photos--detailing critical and not-so-critical issues), responsive (had the full report less than 8 hours after the inspection was complete) and helpful (followed up with recommendations on a variety of contractors I might want to consider for the work to be done). He also made it a point to explain what he was doing/seeing at every step of the way, and to point out/explain particular issues. Finally, George has responded post-inspection to all sorts of questions. Would highly recommend him for his honesty and integrity.
- M.S., September 2018
George was right on time, very knowledgeable, personable, incredibly thorough and made mention of many items that I would not think about such as the possibility that there may be asbestos in the popcorn ceiling, that Chicago mandates sprinklers which could mean a special assessment in the future as well as several other things. Very helpful and worth every penny
- S.G., September 2018
The assessment was clear cut, accurate, enlightening, and informative. The Inspector was friendly, yet impartial.

George was fantastic! He arrived early, provided ample photos inside his detailed inspection report and walked our property with us pointing out an issues that caught his eye. Once we received his report - within the same day as our inspection - both my wife and I were impressed with the ease in which we could identify the problems he found. His report allowed us to note requested changes we wanted performed and permitted us to email both our agent and lawyer to request these modification and repairs be performed per George's detailed recommendations report.

Perhaps get an appointment book online for people to select times and you can either confirm or deny them. Or you can simply upload your blocked times and dates- 1 to 2 weeks ahead of time for people to see your availability. Then people can select and fill out a brief survey for you to collect their information. Like a virtual secretary and appointment setter. Just a suggestion. Sharaka M. Leonard

His report was also very helpful with good pictures and explanations. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

- C.L., January 2017
I love how George interacts with my clients. He likes to educate them and helps them understand how everything works and how to maintain them. The only suggestion I would give is to add in the report a way to rate the significance of an issue reported (mild, moderate, extreme) or something similar (minor/major; cosmetic/safety issue; etc). It would help me and my clients to understand the significance of any items called out or in disrepair. Thanks again and I will definitely be using George again!! Loreal
- L.U., January 2017
George did a very good job overall. It snowed the day before we had the inspection, so not able to visually climb up and inspect the roof, gutters and chimney. Prompt and on time. Explained to us a few things he found when meeting us. Inspection report was very detailed. I was impressed on how fast he got the report to us. I would highly recommend.
