Ryan was amazing. So incredibly knowledgeable. Both my husband and I learned so much about what to look for in a house simply by listening to him and all his findings. Ryan is skilled, knowledgeable, very accurate, thorough in his inspection, and super friendly and helpful. He also gave us advice on how to proceed and what can be done with some of the issues of the house. If we have more inspections or things to do and need someone who knows his work, we will definitely get back to him. Highly recommended! Thank you so much.

Absolutely Fantastic inspection! My realtor told us on our way out that he would be saving Ryan's information for future clients in this area, he was so impressed not only with the thoroughness of his inspection but also the way he presented it. He told us most inspectors seem to focus only on the negative but Ryan found a number of positive attributes about our future home and let us know about them in addition to the things we should be looking out for, which made for a very enjoyable walk thru. He explained things very clearly and was very quick with the final report being emailed. Absolutely the guy you want to call especially if you're a first time buyer and feel a little overwhelmed!

Ryan is the exact professional you want to inspect your home! Being a former builder of homes, he knows exactly what to look for. Even better -he knows the materials, products and craftsmanship that goes into building a home. He knows how these products and materials are supposed to function and hold up over time and in the environment. As well, he knows the building codes! All of this knowledge and experience is indispensable! I know, because I have been involved in having homes built, remodeling homes myself, buying, selling and renting out homes for over twenty years. I wish I could have had Ryan on many of those builds, purchases and remodels! Ryan provides a very thorough report that he goes over personally with you on the phone. He takes all the time you need, answers all your questions and concerns -and talks and explains everything "at a level you can understand." The videos and pictures along with his descriptions and analysis he provides are indispensable! Ryan's integrity and passion for doing a thorough job right for the customer, shows in every aspect of his business. I will be sure to use Ryan's expertise in every home related business I pursue in the Verde Valley in the future!

Ryan is fantastic! As a contractor, he really knows houses, and he is extremely good at explaining issues to the buyers. My only reluctance at leaving this good review is I'm afraid everyone will discover how great he is, so it will be harder to book him myself.
