Hello Kent, I was very pleased with both your inspection and your explanations to me outlining the issues and "non issues". It will give me a very good starting point on things that need to be addressed immediately versus those that can wait/cosmetic.

You are awesome and I'd recommend you anytime! Jill

- D.G., October 2016
I picked Kent randomly from a list I was given. The list contained highly recommended inspectors, and I simply chose one. With my little experience in looking for homes, Kent did such an amazing job of finding issues I know that I would have never noticed until I moved in or maybe even later down the road. Detailed explanations and the concern for safety and prevention of damage was exceptional and well thought through. I would gladly recommend this guy to any new or experienced home owner in the future.
- D.S., September 2016
Would recommend Kent to anyone who wanted a job well done!

- S.S., August 2016
Kent was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was thorough in explaining things and did an excellent job writing the report and taking clear pictures of things that needed fixed.
