Mr. Farmer was open and cordial. He was open to discuss every aspect of the inspection process. However, the most positive aspect of Mr. Farmers work was his attention to detail and his absolute professionalism. Not only would I refer him, I'd actively recruit him if I were to ever need another home inspection.

Brian was extremely helpful sorting all stages of his inspection. He was honest, professional, and straightforward. His inspection and advice saved us from making a poor decision. I would recommend him without hesitation and plan to use him again for any home inspection needs.

Brian was fantastic. He was able to get out to our property right away, and quickly got us back a full detailed report. There was so much detail from photos, videos and clear explanations for findings. Brian was great to communicate with made him self avaviable and was very timely. This was my 3rd time using an inspector so I'm somewhat familiar with the process but I will never use another inspector. Brian is very thorough, knowledgeable, efficient, urgent, and a great communicator.

- L.O., March 2020
Brian was very quick to respond to our request for a home inspection which was critical in our situation because of a deadline we faced on the pending offer we had made. He was very thorough and although the home looked good on the surface, Brian found numerous serious flaws that kept us from making a huge mistake. It would have taken over $10,000 to correct the problems and the owner was not willing to fix them. So, thank you Brian. Well done!!
