So I was in a very tight squeeze, I was forced to work with a small group of home inspectors that were certified by my clients mortgage program. I was double booked twice by two different companies, the confusion wasted our first four days for the Home Inspection. This put us in a situation where we needed the home inspection within the next 24 hours. When I got hold of Mekdim he squeezed us into his schedule by starting his work day two hours earlier than normal! Furthermore he was very personable, efficient, and thorough on the inspection. I plan on using Mekdim going forward, he was awesome to work with and my client liked him too! Thanks Mekdim!
