Im glad my Agent referred me to your company, like seeing local companies work together. Don was wonderful to work with, was on time and ready to go. He walked through every step of the house in and out, explaining and showing everything that was in good condition and what was found that needed to be repaired. Very thorough and knowledgeable, made it easy for ne to understand things. The report was just as detailed with everything explained and with pictures. I would highly recommend Don, and this company. The price supported the worth of time spent and place they have to crawl into for investigation. I appreciate what you did for me, Don. Thank you.

Don was excellent. He was knowledgeable and took the time to explain aspects of the mechanical systems that were new to me. His inspection turned up a few things that I would not have found on my own. He came fully equipped, arrived on time, worked efficiently and was very thorough. I would recommend him to my best friend.

Don is extremely friendly, informative, thorough, and a true professional. The inspections he has done for me have been meticulous and gave me the information I needed as a home buyer to have the peace of mind to help make an informed decision on what Is most certainly the biggest Financial decision of my life. I cannot stress how important it is to get the best home inspection service possible when purchasing a property. I believe that Don and his company provide that caliber of service and I highly recommend them for all your home inspection needs.

Don was so thorough and professional. He took the time to explain each issue he found to me. More importantly, as a first time homebuyer, I really appreciated that he wanted to make sure I knew how to operate all of the utilities and he showed me where all of the shut off valves were. I really felt like he was there for me. Thank you Don!

As a Realtor, I see many home inspectors at work. I am confident that by recommending Don to my clients, each will be comfortable with his ability to inspect a home completely. Don is knowledgeable and diligent in the scope of his work. Equally as important, he thoroughly and clearly explains what he discovers to my clients. This allows each client to be comfortable as we continue with the home buying process or move on from it.

I have been wondering who a specific inspector was from a specific deal wanting to use him again; it was Donald Lariviere (lookin through old reports, i was able to confirm). Now that im sure, i will use him whenever im able !!! non alarmist style but, thorough and willing to walk my first time buyer through every issue (or, NON issue)

Don is always very thorough and is willing to explain everything to the buyer. Helpful information for first time buyers. I recommend his business to all my buyers
- S.E., Seekonk MA, August 2019
Donald was the absolute best. Inspected everything.. Told me the problems with my house and also gave me an idea of what I have to do to fix the problem. He also told me what repairs needed the most immediate attention because of safety reasons and which repairs don't need immediate repair. Before he inspected my house I just knew my house needed some work.. After he inspected my house I knew exactly what I needed to do have my house with no issues.

Don was delightful to work with. He took extra time to explain things that I'll need to know in my new home, e.g., water heater and furnace/air conditioning functioning. He was patient while I took notes, very professional and fun, too.

Don was very professional and thorough. He went through everything and explained to me as we went along. Don was very detailed and knowledgeable in what he was doing.
