Anytime and everytime I would have Bill inspect my home. He is very thorough and detailed in his documentation.
- A.B., Memphis TN, February 2022
Thank you again, Mr. Bill, for working with me. As the buyer this time, I can fully appreciate how thorough you are with the home inspection. Hopefully I will have more clients to send your way this year!
- J.G., January 2022
He was on time and did a very thorough job. He was there for about 4 hours and gave a very detailed report.
- M.G., Memphis TN, January 2022
Bill was very professional and provided a very in depth inspection report. He also took the time to explain his concerns with certain areas and gave personal advice and ideas of what to do with certain parts of the house. Overall with his detailed report and advice helped me choose the right decision on the home I was looking at.
- C.E., Memphis TN, November 2021

- B.C., Memphis TN, October 2021

- K.D., September 2021
I will never buy a property without having Bill Burross do an inspection. This inspection is more than I could have asked of and I'm inviting him to come back again after repairs are completed to ensure it meets the standards he's shared. Hire Bill Burross if you care about the investment you're going to make. - Justin J. Pearson
- J.P., September 2021
Mr. Burross was not only very professional and knowledgeable, but he was extremely thorough. It was refreshing that my husband and I could feel completely confident in his abilities and trust that our money was spent well. Mr. Burross spends way more time inspecting your property than the average inspector, and he takes his job very serious. After the report was finished his services did not stop. He checked back in to make sure we were satisfied with his work and to answer any questions we had. I will definitely recommend Bill Burross to others.
- O.W., September 2021
He is the best: 110% reliable in every area; doesn't cut any corners; the most hard-working, thorough inspector around, and I wouldn't trust my client's future with anyone else.
- R.F., August 2021
Bill did a great job! He was exceptionally detail oriented which provided us considerable piece of mind. Basically, he looked at things we probably never would have thought about until something went wrong. He is definitely the guy I would want inspecting my home!
- V.C., July 2021
Bill was a pleasure to work with. He was very professional, detailed and explained the process. He does excellent work and will definitely refer him to others who need inspections.
- R.W., July 2021

- J.W., Memphis TN, April 2020
Bill is the most thorough home inspector we have used. That is a good thing. He takes his time to make sure he is able to adequately evaluate every part of a home. The reports he provides are great. They include pictures of specific areas and he summarized the items that he recommends repair or replacement. If you are unsure where to look for someone to inspect your home, look here at Bill Burross.
- T.A., October 2019
Bill has my highest recommendation. As a former clinician and present healthcare administrator I appreciate Bill's absolutely flawless and professional teaching approach to informed consent. You will have a very clear view of what Bill proposes to do, and then he will do exactly what he describes. When he is finished you will receive a thorough description of every aspect of the subject property's condition--so long as Bill can put his eyes on it he will report on it--the ultimate "house detective." He'll even go where only spiders and mice go (as long as he can fit). You will then benefit greatly from ongoing access to a cloud based application (mobile friendly) to review the inspection and help you manage current essential repairs and ongoing maintenance. I was fortunate to discover Bill Burross, and would never consider making a real estate purchase without an inspection performed by him in hand. The report allows you to understand exactly what you are buying, and is a perfect tool to help level the playing field between seller and buyer in a neutral, fact-based way. Bill Burross stands head and shoulders above any home inspector I have ever used, and he has earned my trust and respect.
- C.C., Memphis TN, October 2019
Very professional~took time to explain things to me. Very informative ~I would definitely recommend Bill.

- B.E., Memphis TN, February 2018
Bill was thorough, prompt, and courteous. The inspection was scheduled on an unusually cold day. Bill did not let the terrible weather deter him from the job. He spent over two hours outside in the cold, carefully inspecting items I would have overlooked. Interior inspection was equally detailed. The final report was easy to read and understand, and the website provided a simple way to create our buyer’s list of items to be corrected.

Mr. Burross was very professional. He was very thorough and presented the inspection information in an easy to follow format complete with supporting photos and commentary on potential consequences of each item identified.
