My realtor gave me the names of 3 inspectors. I called all of them and am so thankful I chose Brian! Brian inspected a house for us in a very timely manner. When speaking with Brian on the phone for the first time, he was very patient and explained exactly what he would look at during his inspection. He answered my questions about some concerns I had. He spent a good deal of time with me on the phone and again at the house. After his inspection, he showed us his concerns about the house. He arranged termite inspection with a company he trusts. That inspector also thoroughly explained his findings. Brian again answered questions on the phone after the inspection. He never made me feel rushed. My husband and I feel very confident in Brian’s ability to inspect a house! If we ever need another house inspection, you can be sure we will call Brian.
