- G.A., October 2021
110% Job Well Done! Within 48 hours of contacting Patti, we had the home inspection complete on our potential future home. Patti and Tony were very professional and thorough!! The inspection report was provided on the same day and it was very detailed with well documented findings as well as much needed guidance on how to monitor and reduce the further damage caused by any shortfalls discovered. This is the second time we've had the pleasure of US Building Inspectors helping us with our home inspection and it certainly will not be the last. Thank you for the high quality work!!!
- M.G., July 2021
The inspection has been the least stressful of the entire purchase process. The professionalism and detail of my inspection was above and beyond. I recommend US Building Inspectors to everyone that needs an inspection.

- J.L., June 2021
From first call with Patti all interactions were professional, knowledgeable + timely. Tony the inspector was on time and very helpful. He did a complete inside, outside, top to bottom inspection. He explained everything in detail even suggesting how to fix any issues and prioritized them in order needing to be done. Complete inspection report was available the very next evening. I will recommend US Building Inspectors Inc to Any and ALL looking for a home inspection. Thanks Patti + Tony

Very thorough and detailed.
- J.M., February 2021
We were incredibly pleased with the responsiveness and professionalism of Patti Hofstrand and her inspector, Tony. Tony took the time to explain the process and to point out areas of concern as he inspected the property. He introduced me to the other inspectors working that day on the pool, pest, and gas lines and what they were looking for and their results. Patti was very accommodating to our schedule, enabling the inspection to be done within our timeline. She explained what inspections were necessary and why and responded to my questions in a timely manner. I would recommend Patti and her team, they were thorough and complete in their inspection of our property.
- K.B., February 2021
It was a very thorough inspection. Tony looked into all areas of the home and let us know of immediate actions that needed to be taken and other areas that we should keep an eye on.
- J.L., January 2021
We were not familiar with Florida rules and codes for the inspection when we called this office to schedule the inspection. The office was very fast to get back to us and guided us through the process. Patrice was professional and Tony was very knowledgeable and helpful inspector. After the inspection was completed we needed more reports for the insurance companies, Patrice was able to provide it to us without any delays. Absolutely the best company to deal with! We are very pleased with the services. Thank you Patrice and Tony!

This company was great! I had to reschedule inspection twice and they were understanding and made big effort to be there for the actual inspection on very short notice. I highly recommend them. Tony was fantastic and very professional. Responds to texts quickly. Very thorough and accurate inspection and report. I give them 5 stars!
- K.E., October 2019
Very thorough, knowledgeable and professional,. Home buying can be a scary time in a person's life. It is a huge investment and they make sure you know what you are investing in from top to bottom, inside and out. The report was very informative and assisted me in budgeting for future repair costs and for bargaining with the seller. They are amazing!
- D.C., October 2019
Thanks Patti and Tony, you were great. From the first phone call to the finished report, they made it a very easy step in the purchase of my new home. Patti was so welcoming and easy to talk to. She made me feel at ease with getting everything set up. Tony did an excellent job inspecting and explaining everything to me. Patti told me she does not go to every inspection site as that is Tony's job, but she came by to meet me and that made me feel even more like she truly cared. They are very professional and knowledgeable, yet personable, and a caring team. From appointment to payment, it was an easy process and they did a great job.
- L.R., Lake Worth FL, September 2019
Patti and her team always deliver a comprehensive, informative and easy to understand report. They are reliable, trust worthy and a pleasure to do business with !

A wonderful company. Very professional, thorough and knowledgeable. Tony made a stressful day fun. The owner Patti followed up with a phone call to explain in detail things from their report.
- T.E., June 2019
I would like to thank Patrice Neri and U.S. Building Inspectors company for doing a fantastic job in getting my home inspected. I made the appointment with Patti and she scheduled the site inspection within 48 hours. A comprehensive report was filed within 48 hours and this included a wind mitigation, mold inspection and termite inspection. When I arrived at the house a few days later and did a walk through with the Realtors, Patti's report was spot on with everything mentioned that needed to be done. Patti and team were quick, efficient, courteous and hard working. I have full respect for the job she and her team did and I am very happy with her and her team's work. Great job U.S. Building Inspectors!

Patti is the consummate professional home inspector. She is extremely thorough and gets the work done on time. More importantly, she explains observed issues in layman's terms and suggests a variety of specific solutions. Highly recommend!!
- J.S., November 2018
The Best , Thank You. Great Company.
- N.C., October 2018
Evidently an inspection is crucial. A dedicated and knowledgeable inspector is key. That?s what we got. The potential issues he discovered had me passing on the purchase. They WILL be doing my next! Thank you Patti and your team!!
- R.J., September 2018
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Patti to anyone. She's thorough, knowledgeable, conscientious, and fast. She also takes the time to explain and answer questions her clients may have. Many thanks to her.
- J.D., August 2018
Patti and the the inspector who came with her were very thorough. The information they gave us was factual and to the point. We were very fortunate to have found someone with Patt's expertise. I will most certainly want to use US Building Inspectors and Patti again.
- G.S., July 2018
I have used Patti three times in different homes before making a commitment to buying the home. Each time, because she and her team are so thorough, it has revealed every issue I needed to be aware of before going through with the purchase. The most recent inspection she did for me uncovered problems that were not visible to an untrained eye and would have cost me thousands of dollars. Thanks again Patti. You're the best!
- S., July 2018
I found Patti to be very thorough, knowledgeable, caring, helpful, and generous with her time. I would not hesitate to recommend her and her company.
- J.D., June 2018
Patty was very thorough!! She took her time during the walk through to explain all the findings. I would recommend Patty to my friends. She is reliable and friendly!!
- C.B., May 2018
I've been on both sides of an inspection with Patti and the first time was when I was selling my older home. Patti and her team discovered things that I wish I had taken care of earlier. Items such as not having GFCI outlets, a Water Heater that was working perfectly but was so rusty it was about to crumble (I would never have seen that if they didn't point it out). Now that I'm buying I just had to have them inspect the new house to see what problems might be lurking there. And they discovered items I again never saw when I signed the contract to purchase. Items such as broken tiles on roof, leaks on flashing, corroded water pipes. Patti and Tony are an outstanding team of professionals and provide an incredibly comprehensive report of their findings.
- S.T., March 2018
Patti does a great and thorough job with her inspection. She brought along professional pest control folks. She and her colleague did a very detailed inspection of all of the systems and structures in the house. They pointed out several situations that wouldn't have been apparent to the layman. We greatly appreciate the job they did and will benefit from the details they pointed out. I highly recommend them for your real estate inspection needs.
- J.M., March 2018
Patti and Tony were absolutely fabulous. Being a board member of my Chicago Condo Association, i have seen many inspection reports. This is one of the most thorough and thoughtful inspection reports I have already seen.
- S.G., Boca Raton FL, January 2018
Patti and the two other guys did a fantastic job for me she loves what she is doing she enjoys helping people and their family making the right decision for their new home
- R.P., January 2018
The most professional inspection you could ask for. Patti and her team are the best. You cannot get a more complete report.. Thanks again for helping me make the right purchase decision.
- J.K., Lake Worth FL, January 2018
Incredibly thorough. Very quick to communicate. Answers emails, cell, text on weekends and at all hours. She explains everything and walks you through the inspection with utmost attention to detail.
- L.S., November 2017

- C.M., March 2017
I don't know much about building inspection, but I can definitely tell that Pati cares about the quality of the inspection and documents. The pictures were excellent and I was able to understand everything.
- M.F., March 2017
Wonderful lady! Ms. Neri was very nice and informative. Her report provided quite alot of detail and pictures of the home, so that I know where I stand as far as repairs/remodeling. It was a pleasure to do business with her.
- M.N., March 2017
Thank you for loving what you do! When someone loves what they do, they operate in complete excellence. Patti, what you did for me allowed me to be fully aware of my situation and gave me the understanding i needed to make the right decision. Your work was on time, precise, and accurate to the "T". Your level of expertise is undeniable and i would recommend you to anyone! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
- J.S., March 2017
I thought they were very thorough and professional and friendly
- J.B., February 2017
Patti was amazing !!. Her report was extremely thorough. I have bought and sold several homes and she exceeded any inspector I ever had. My grand-daughter Nicki was right. She described Patti as a "pit-bull" When it comes to home inspections, Patti really is a pit-bull !! Nothing got by her!!
- T.H., February 2017
Patti was awesome. Incredibly knowledgeable, thorough investigation and vision, wonderful sense of humor blended with professionalism. I will be recommending. Thanks Patti!

Patti did a very thorough inspection of home I am buying. Good detail and easy to understand. Very pleased with her service.
- D.C., Hertford NC, February 2017
Patti did an excellent job for us. She did a very through inspection of the house. Since we could not be there, she called us right after the inspection and went over the details with us. She told us to call if we had any questions when we receive the full report. She is very busy with inspections but still answered our calls and responded to our emails. She was very honest and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her for your home inspections.
- K.C., January 2017
Thanks Patti. You did a great job!
- P.R., November 2016
Patti is OUTSTANDING!!! we are purchasing a home in FL but live in TX. Patti took all the stress away with one phone call. She took the time to explain exactly what was going to happen and what to expect. She was able to coordinate several other inspectors in different fields to be there at the same time so that everything was inspected in the same appointment. After the inspection she took the time to call me and in such a calm, straightforward informative way explain the high points of the inspection and answer all my question in a way that was very easy for me to understand. When I received the report I was blown away at the level of detail! I've had homes inspected before, several times, and have never had a report with the level of detail including so many photos. Even with all the technical information in the report Patti wrote it in such a way that was extremely easy for me to read and understand. Patti also took the time to thoroughly answer any follow up suggestions I had! Patti you are amazing and I can never tell you how much I appreciate you! You took what was the most stressful part of buying a home out of state and made it the easiest stress free part of the entire purchase!!!
- A.H., November 2016
Friendly and serious person on doing her job
- D.B., August 2016
Patti was excellent. Her report was very thorough and it identified the major issues of concern. I would definitely use her again.
- D.V., August 2016
Patti and her team (Tony) were awesome. They performed a thorough inspection and truly did not miss a thing. They took me around and showed me trouble spots that I as a homeowner, would need to pay special attention to in the future. They pointed out all the problem areas and possible deal breakers (of which there were none). Their expertise instilled confidence in the fact that I felt good in purchasing a home that was 23 years old. They were truly impressive. I would strongly recommend US Building Inspectors to anyone considering buying a home. This is the large purchase and Patti and Tony are top notch experts in their field!!! As a side note, I should mention that I was a contractor in Virginia and worked as a production manager at a large home improvement company. So I like to think I know a thing or two about construction. You can trust this company will do right by you.
- , April 2016
Patrice Neri and US Building Inspectors did a very thorough job inspecting the home that I am Purchasing. They are very professional and did a wonderful job inspecting the house.

Patti - you did an incredible job with our inspection report. You were very detailed and provided recommendations that I will definitely be utilizing. I am very happy with the quality report you produced for us!!!
- M.S., March 2016
Patti is a true professional and is very knowledgeable and experienced in her field. Every aspect of the service she performed was thorough and meticulous from her initial inspection to the detailed report that followed. Upon completion of the inspection, she took the time to walked me through the house to point out areas of concern as well as positive attributes that should be noted to an insurance company for the purpose of discounts. My realtor said he has never seen a inspector perform an inspection as thoroughly as Patti did. Her wind mitigation inspector and termite inspector were top notch as well. Thank you US Building Inspectors!
- S.H., March 2016
This was the most thorough home inspection we have ever had. Patti and her employees were very professional throughout the process, explained everything in detail afterwards, and answered all of our questions. They definitely exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend them.

Patrice did an exceptional inspection. I have bought three homes in the past and her inspection was by far the best. She was extremely thorough which was reassuring. She took the time to speak with me afterwards and focused in on what I needed to know immediately. This allowed me to start an action plan with my realtor and it saved me time and money. I would highly recommend Patrice's company to those looking for a home inspection. You are the best! Thanks Patrice

- R.C., December 2015
For my house i am selling, the inspection here was 4 scribbled lines. Patti was totally thorough. With the pictures and ratings I saw my new home in an entirely different way. How professional and yet so approachable. 10 really isn't a high enough rating.
- K.S., November 2015
Patti was great! She was very detail orientated. Her lengthy report will help us develop a plan of action to tackle each repair! Thanks

- C.P., March 2015
Patti was the most professional inspector that I ( we ) have ever dealt with. She was thorough , to the point, and her report was prompt and easy to decipher. In fact , the title company originally wanted me to use their inspector - and are now asking for her business card. Patti's knowledge of her job is truly above the average inspectors , and everyone who was present for the inspection, was impressed. . We cannot speak any highly of her . I am beyond pleased and feel confident in her work . Thank you . Suzanne 754-234-2761

The reports were very thorough and the recommendation you listed will be a valuable tool for us to properly maintain our new home in the future. Thank you, Ana & Robert
- A.C., January 2015
The best Inspector I have used in 20 years in the business. Patti & her crew just came in & took over, explaining in great detail any issues that could present a problem down the road for the buyer. My buyer was equally impressed, Patti is now on speed dial whenever needed, I highly recommend her. Keith J Continental Properties
- K.J., January 2015
One of the best.
- V.S., January 2015
Patti is the best. She was my inspector when I was buying my house and was really helpful, she spent over 4 hours and had 3 guys with her. Very professional and honest. I will recommend her anytime.
- P.P., December 2014
- D.P., November 2014
Thanks Patti for going above and beyond the call of duty. You've been thorough, professional, reachable (for sure!) and trustworthy. We appreciate all you've done to help this process move forward! Can't wait to move in!!
- B.W., October 2014
Patti came highly recommended by someone that I really trust in the housing industry. Called Patti on a Wednesday and needed an inspection within 7 days, she was more than willing to accommodate my request. I was not able to be present but when they were done with the inspection she called and did a walk through with me. Her thoroughness with the inspection made fell comfortable in continuing with the purchase of an older home.
- D.S., October 2014
I would recommend Pati. I wasn't at the inspection but the report was thorough and I most appreciated the quick turn around to do the inspection. Thanks.
- R.M., October 2014
Keep on doing what you're doing...'cause you're doing it right ! Thank you !
- A.M., October 2014
Patti was extremely informative, answered all of our questions and went through the entire inspection with us. We will definitely recommend Patti to our friends and family!
- D.C., September 2014
Patti was not only punctual, professional, informative, but also very thorough. Would definitely use her again and recommend her to family and friends. Thanks again for everything.
- D.W., August 2014
Having purchased 11 homes for both personal and investment purposes, I have never had a better inspection team. Most recently, thanks to the extensive and thorough inspection on a home I am considering buying, the report showed major defects that an inspection done by another company for another potential buyer for this same house did not pick up on at all! Thank you Patrice Neri!
- S., July 2014
You are awesome!!!!
- J.D., July 2014
Thank you Patti
- H.C., July 2014
Patti was excellent. She was on time and very thorough. She went over everything.She let me know what things needed to be taken care of immediately, and what could wait. She even stayed longer than expected as I had many questions. I would recommend Patti and your company very strongly to anyone. Best regards, Beate Hernandez
- B.H., June 2014
Patrice Neri did a very good job. She checked every part of the house and I feel she gave me a very honest report. I would recommend her to anyone who was buying a house.
