My husband and I are first-time home buyers and were nervous coming into the inspection. Ben put our minds at ease. He started by asking if we had any specific concerns about the home and then made sure he checked all of them. He was very thorough; our real estate agent said he was much more thorough than many other inspectors she's seen over the years. At the end of the inspection, he walked us through the home and pointed out every issue, both major and minor, he thought we should know about and explained the maintenance requirements and schedules for the various components like the water heater and HVAC. He was patient and answered all of our (many!) questions. The written report was easy to understand (with pictures that helped explain the issues) and ready the next day. We would absolutely use Ben again and recommend him to others.

Ben was fantastic, friendly, thorough. I'd say my only recommendation would be to pull me aside and show me more as he's going through items. We have loved Dunsing's work overall!
- M.R., Lincolnwood IL, February 2019
This is my first time working with Dunsing Inspections and the process has been great. From the initial sales inquiry/scheduling, to the inspection, and quick report turnaround. Specifically, we worked with Ben Schwartz who could not have been more helpful and professional. Ben also pointed out a serious mold issue in the attic of the home which was missed by myself, both brokers, and a contractor.
I am happy to have found my new go to inspector.
- N.B., Chicago IL, February 2019
Thanks Ben for all your help. It was an education to say the least!
- C.M., Chicago IL, December 2018
Ben and his team were great to work with. I had a challenge with scheduling and the office staff was able to accommodate. Ben brought another colleague to help with training and the two of them were able to do a very detailed, effective inspection in a timely manner as well as provide two sources of experience.
- K.M., October 2018
Ben & Jamie from Dunsing did an inspection for me last week and it was more than I could've asked for. Ben is extremely professional, polite and an expert in his craft. He got right down to business and made sure that I understood everything as he went step by step. I would highly recommend him to anyone and feel more comfortable with the property now that he has gone through it.
- T.C., October 2018
Ben was very thorough. He checked items I was particularly worried about like the fireplaces with extra care. He explained every step of the inspection which made me feel more confident in my purchase. I would definitely recommend him to anyone else who is looking for a complete home evaluation.

- J.C., Glenview IL, February 2018
Ben is knowledgeable and nice. We are first time home buyers with lots of questions and he answered them all.
- J.B., January 2018
Once we took possession of the home we were very disappointed to find things that were either not mentioned in the report or that were incorrect. One glaring example is the cold water valve on the upstairs laundry washer. It was rusted and turned off. I only realized this when I attempted to wash a load in cold water and found there wasn't any flowing. When I turned the valve on it made loud noises and vibrated due to a faulty safety valve. This was in plain sight at the time of inspection. One other notable error was that we were told the gas fireplace was inoperable. We had someone out today to do a repair and found none was needed. We still had to pay for a service call.
- V.D., November 2017

He took the time at the beginning of his inspection to address any concerns that I might have had had with the property he was inspecting and explained everything that he found, both good and bad, during his assessment and at the completion of the inspection he reviewed everything with me in detail and answered any questions that I had.
Ben's completed Inspection report is as thorough as his inspection process. The report is easy to follow and he follows up his comments with photos of the areas inspected within his report as reference.
I will definitely use Ben again for any future inspection needs, and I would absolutely recommend Ben to friends. and family.

- M.S., carpentersville IL, February 2017
I absolutely adored Ben. In fact, I thought he did such an incredible job I recommended him to the person who is buying my co-op in Evanston. (I may regret that!) Ben took the time to do a very thorough inspection. He didn't cut any corners. He also took the time to explain to me what he was doing and why it was important. He gave a summary of his findings at the end. He was personable and had a great sense of humor, which I fear you probably need in this business. He was clearly well informed. I will use him for the sale of my home in Kenilworth to find the weak spots that need fixing before we go on the market. I can't say enough good things about Ben.
- C.L., Kenilworth IL, February 2017
