I have owned my own remodeling business, working on turn-of-the-century buildings and homes. I have also worked with several banks to renovate their repossessed homes. Since moving to Helena, I have spent five years working for contractors as well as renovating homes. Through all this, I have learned what it takes to give a report that has been seen as more acceptable for both the buyer and the seller.

His attention to detail and extra care is very impressive!

It was a pleasure doing business with Warren & Lynn. They were very generous with their time and knowledge. I thought I was pretty familiar with they house, but Warren pointed out several surprising situations that need to be dealt with. They were thorough, efficient and professional, and reported back to me quickly. I highly recommend Spur Home Inspection.
- J.W., September 2020
Thank you Warren and his beautiful wife Lynn for a great inspection. A little background, I have built 5 of my own homes in the $300-500k range so I know everthing right? Only a fool represents himself, the old adage says. I asked Warren if I could tag along and he was most gracious. He asked my concerns and we went on. He'd show me an area of interest and I'd say look at this too. This went on over two and a half hours. Half way thru he knew I wasn't going to buy the house but he finished the inspection completely and had the report by morning. First thank you for driving an hour out of the Helena area and even with short notice on a Saturday. And secondly for letting me divert you from your routine method of inspection. Sadly we backed out of the home purchase but it saved us tens of thousands of dollars and heartache . I would recommend Warren and Lynn to anyone wanting an honest complete job of a home inspection. And we have new friends too.
- M.N., September 2020
We appreciated the thoroughness of the inspection by Warren, especially since we were unable to be there. Having a representative there on our behalf was also helpful. We would highly recommend Spur Home Inspection to others.
- K.T., September 2020
Yes, I do recommend Warren to other agents. I just let an agent in my office know about him today when she asked me who I use for home inspections. Also had an out of office agent meet him last Saturday during a home inspection.
- R.P., Butte MT, August 2020
Warren and his wife were friendly and thorough! Warren took the time to explain to us things that we weren’t familiar with :)
- A.S., August 2020
Warren did a great job. He took time to literally walk us through his inspection, and he suggested repairs and talked with us about how to maintain the home, providing specific examples of maintenance to prioritize. Warren was helpful, friendly, and approachable. He also was professional and very thorough. I would happily hire Warren again in the future, and I would highly recommend him.
- A.G., July 2020

Warren was great. He and his wife were very friendly and thorough and explained things in a way they could be understood.
- R.N., July 2020
The inspection was very thorough and the report expertly written. We knew exactly what needed to be done, what was important or could wait, and Warren took the time to point out potential issues that should be addressed soon. They provided pictures of each deficiency and gave suggestions on how to repair them, or who to call. I was very pleased with the professionalism and friendliness of my team. Their knowledge and experience were evident throughout the inspection and in the inspection report. The website and inspection report tool are outstanding! The ease of accessing the report, skipping straight to the summary, adding things to the list of items to be completed or accept 'as is' and sharing it with our realtor made everything easy and expedient during a process full of deadlines! I would highly recommend this team whether you need an inspection for buying/selling a home, or just for maintaining the one you have.
- J.S., June 2020
Warren was absolutely amazing for our home inspection! He was very thorough when inspecting our new home. He explained in great detail some of the issues related to the new home. I would definitely use his services again in the future. Thanks!

I would like to thank warren sears and his wife for their very through and professional inspection DJF
- D.F., June 2020
The information I received from Mr. Sears was honest and truthful. I wanted to buy the property in question but with the information I received Mr. Sears let me know exactly what I was investing in. Mr. Sears did not influence me in any way weather to buy or not buy the property. Mr. Sears let me know what the condition of the property was in and what would need immediate attention. After consideration I felt that the property did not meet my expectation. The investment I made with Mr. Sears was well worth the cost. I would absolutely recommend Warren Sears as your inspector and will use his expertise in the future.
- W.W., June 2020
Warren was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. We had a wonderful experience, and would highly recommend using his services.

Warren and his family are some amazing and whole-heartedly genuine folks. He was recommended to us for our first home, once, and we will never go anywhere else. An inspection is more than someone coming and looking around your new home. Warren makes that time worth while, and let's you know exactly what you are up against.
- T.M., Helena MT, January 2020
Warren, I was happy to be allowed to observe your inspection process. It was very through and I am pleased to know all your findings so that we can make corrections. As a result, we have already recommended your company to another prospective home buyer. Thank you for your service. Robb Ellis

- A.E., August 2019
When looking for a home inspector our realtor gave us a few names with Warren being one of them. We reviewed their websites then we chose Warren based on the referral, his experience and reviews. We live out of town, so we were a little nervous. Our nerves were quickly set aside as from my first call, Warren and his wife responded immediately and were very personable. We were buying a home that needed a complete renovation, which we thoroughly discussed. Warren listened then then promptly scheduled our inspection with focused details. Throughout the process, he was knowledgeable, friendly, timely, communicative and ultimately provided excellent pictures with detailed results from the inspection the following morning. His charges were on target and we feel like he delivered exactly what we needed. We highly recommend Warren and we will definitely be calling on his services again. Respectfully, Brian & Polly

- J.T., July 2019

Warren gave us a very professional inspection. It was clear, concise, complete, and was 'well pictured' which gave us, the buyers, the information that we wanted and needed.

It was our pleasure to meet both Warren and his wife, Lynn.

Mr. Warren Sears and his wife are very kind and patient people. I used SPUR Home Inspection for two houses, the condition of which differed greatly. The inspector and his helper arrived early and ready to work. They were happy to answer my questions and speak to my concerns. The reports sent to me were very detailed with good photos and recommendations for observation and repair. I was given a very good overall idea of what needed to be done to make each home safe and live-able. In one case, I was saved from investing in a home that would have been a huge liability and money sink, and for that I am very grateful. In the other, I was shown small details that needed to be ironed out to get the place up to my high standards. Thank you SPUR Home Inspection for helping me make more sound real estate decisions!
- A.C., November 2018
Warren was VERY thorough and specific when he did our inspection. He is definitely worth the money!! Use us as a reference if you'd like.
- R.K., October 2018
Warren was exceptionally professional while also being very cordial. After walking beside him through the inspection of a rental property, I came back to my house and checked out some issues I would never have thought about. I have to think he is at the top of directory for honest and efficient home inspectors in the Helena area. He arrived early and sent me the final complete report the next morning. I recommend Warren to everyone. J.H. 10-14-18
- J.H., October 2018
