Thorough inspection with a generous side of education. I feel incredibly more confident in our new home after hiring George to look it through. Seriously brilliant hire
- D.K., February 2018
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. Thank George! It was a pleasure working with you.

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

George was polite, personable and very detailed. He took the time to explain things and walked you through each step. He made sure you understood everything and gave you opportunities to ask questions and even encouraged you to ask questions. No question was a dumb question to George. Not only did he follow up with me the following day, but also said if I would have any questions later to not hesitate to get in touch with him. I couldn't have asked for a better or more thorough inspector!
- M.M., April 2017

George was able to arrange his schedule to do my inspection the day before. He came to the property earlier and had already inspected the roof and foundation. Inside he was very thorough, and explained all potential problems and if they needed immediate attention or can be corrected at a later date. I felt he did an excellent job and addressed my concerns. His report was also very helpful with good pictures and explanations. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
- J.P., January 2017
Very thorough and pays attention to details, which is very essential for a home inspection.
- S.G., Chicago IL, January 2017
Great job! I look forward to working with him in the future.
- 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.
- P.G., December 2016
George was the most professional, knowledgeable, informative and practical home inspector I've ever worked with. He turns out his report immediately and is generous with good advice at a competitive price. George is very personable and a pleasure to work with. A+ George! Thank you.
- G.E., December 2016
George was very thorough, informative, and professional. He made me feel more comfortable with the investment I was making in my home, and put me in a better position to negotiate the terms of buying the property. His report was very easy to follow and included pictures of everything. I'd recommend George to anyone in need of a home inspection.
- A.B., Evanston IL, December 2016

George, I was very pleased with your inspection. It help tremendously in my purchase price. My next buy will also include your service. Thank you, peter p.
- P.P., November 2016
George helped us inspected two homes, and in both instances George done an excellent job. George allowed us to tag along with him while he inspected each area of the house (outside, inside, attic, backyard, trees affecting home, basement, electric panel, furnace, heating, water, etc… basically every corner of the home). During the inspection process George explained what he was doing and what he was observing, pin pointed the problems, provided the reason for the problem, provided his recommendation and solution, and more importantly allowed us to ask questions. George also provided a very detail inspection report within 24 hours for us to review. With this report, we were well informed about the condition of the home which assisted us with our decision making. We walked away from one purchase due to concrete foundation and moisture in the basement that would be a disaster for us down the line. All-in-all, George was friendly and great to work with. I highly recommend George if you’re looking for an inspector for your new house.
- M.L., November 2016
George performed a very professional inspection for my client. His understanding of the process and explanation of the items he inspected in a comprehensive and yet understanding manner was very helpful to the very inquisitive Buyer.

Very thorough in all of his work and explained all that he did.
- M.K., October 2016

Unfortunately this was my first inspection so really don't have anything to compare to. Overall friendly and professional.

George is very customer oriented. He is very pleasant to talk to. He will go over the items that he is showing you and thinks about root cause of any issues he is identifying to help the home owner with remediation(s). I had compared him to some. i like that he was not a fast talking salesman like others i contacted. his reports were on par with what was expected and the photos help in making sure issues were documented for the owner of the house to inspect as well. overall a good inspection.
- V.V., May 2016
George was a true pleasure to work with. He was very understanding with all of our general questions and did an excellent job of explaining everything that we looked at and went through.

George was excellent, thoughtful, courteous and careful. I am used to home inspection with estimate ranges for needed repairs. This is the norm in Canada and would be a significant service enhancement. Just a suggestion.

- M.M., March 2016
Hello George, As I commented to you as we walked around the property, I have never purchased a home or observed a home inspection before. None-the-less, I was very convinced of the quality and DETAIL of your inspection after only a short time of watching you work. The answers and explanations you gave in response to my questions helped me to understand what you were seeing. Maybe I asked more questions than the average home buyer, but you were patient and generous with the time you gave to our inspection. Need I say more? Well, your written report was just as thorough, detailed and easy to understand as you were in person. Many thanks; excellent work! Sincerely, John V.
- J.V., Northbrook IL, March 2016
