Great job!

Jeff is the best!!
- J.P., February 2016
Jeff, the slab on the property we inspected did not belong to that property, it belonged to the property across the way. Had I known that earlier, I would not have put in an offer on this property and of course would not have paid for an inspection. Having shared that with you, I now want to were professional, kind and very helpful. You answered my questions to the best of your knowledge and you were honest when you could only speculate about the cause of something. But most of all loved working with a Veteran and knowing your company was doing great things for Veterans! Even though paying for the inspection was a financial loss to me. I felt like it couldn't have gone to a better company. Semper Fi Tanya Alexander
- T.A., January 2016

- D.E., November 2015
I had showed up just to take a look around and was interested in the home inspection process. I was a bit shy and awkward when I showed up but Jeff was so chatty he made me feel so welcome. He seemed to enjoy showing me everything he was doing and was extremely thorough about everything. He even let me climb up in the attic to take a peak. Jeff is a super fun, enthusiastic guy who loves his job. I would recommend him to anyone!
- A.L., October 2015
Thanks for the quick and detailed report! The use of the FLIR camera is a nice tough - so was the extended bathroom / shower tests!
- A.M., October 2015
Sorry its taken so long to get back to you - our computer hard drive crashed and we finally are up and running with a new drive.. I have a gofundme account to help pay for the recovery of the old drive - our pictures more than anything. Any way - you did great and we will always recommend you in the future as well as use your service if we purchase again. Thanks
- K.S., October 2015
Mr. Duncan was very proffesional and did a very complete job saving me probably more than the inspection cost thanks

The home inspection experience (as a home buyer) that I've received from Mr. Jeff Duncan has been the best that I've ever encountered through my home buying experience. Mr. Duncan is thorough, pays attention to detail, informative and patient, just to name a few. I'm planning to fix and update my home according to the home inspection report that I received. This will definitely save me time, money and make the home more appealing should I be on the seller side in the future. I highly recommend Mr. Jeff Duncan and will definitely use him and the Real Estate Inspection Company again for any future real estate transaction.
- R.F., June 2015

- H.X., May 2015

- J.H., April 2015
Jeff is amazing!!!!! Once I got to the property he was already there looking over the outside of the property. I took my daughter with me to inspection and he is so friendly and family oriented. Jeff walked me through the major fixtures of the house. I am VERY happy with his services. THANK YOU!!!!!!! The price for the inspection was also great. Thank you again. I will be recommending his and his company to family and friends.
- M.L., April 2015
Worked quickly while still being extremely thorough. Report was detailed and received it right away. Great experience working with this company.
- N.a., April 2015
Jeff very thorough during the inspection. He was able to find many things that we had passed over during the initial walk-through of the house. He was also able to explain everything so that even a first time home buyer like me was able to understand which possible issues might be red flags and other issues that would be really easy repairs.
- J.T., April 2015
Highly engaged and enthusiastic
- E.L., April 2015
Jeff did a fabulous job. He was on time, thorough, and very approachable. He encouraged questions and was happy to share his knowledge. Being an older female, I appreciated it very much that he made it a point to show me where the gas, water, electricity valves/boxes are located so that I would know what to do if I ever needed to turn anything off at the source. He had a well written and detailed report drafted within 2 hours after the inspection which is helpful in moving things along. He seems to love his job and that makes a huge difference also!! :-)
- T.V., March 2015
Jeff was very professional, punctual and thorough. He explained what he was doing as he did it. Jeff also took his time. I would recommend him!
- S.O., March 2015
Jeff did an outstanding job inspecting my new home!!! Thanks so much.
- D.S., March 2015

- C.C., San Diego CA, March 2015
The inspection was very thorough and informative. Jeff really took the time to explain every aspect of the process to my husband and I.
- J.P., March 2015
Jeff was not only professional but presented an incredibly detailed inspection report complete with pictures and adequate detailed explanations for all findings.

- A.S., March 2015
Jeff did a great job, and he offered a lot of good maintenance tips.
- B.H., March 2015
I was impressed by the professionalism and the thoroughness of Jeff's inspection. I highly recommend the use of the company and their personnel and will use them again if I ever have the need.
- E.P., February 2015
A home inspector can make or break a transaction. Having a good home inspector to talk to your clients about the findings and address questions or concerns is crucial! I have been working with Jeff for several years now & I will continue to recommend him! He is friendly, knowledgeable & thorough. Detailed reports are completed & received the same day. Jeff is a great home inspector, one of the best in the business! That’s why I’ll continue to have him as part of my team!

- A.C., January 2015
Very professional and thorough. I'd recommend them to my friends.
- S.L., January 2015
As a first time home buyer, Jeff, made me feel more confident and less apprehensive about purchasing a home. Since this will probably be the largest purchase I will ever make, he made the whole buying process that much easier and helped diminish some of the anxiety with his thorough analysis of the property. He took his time answering all of my questions and never made me feel uncomfortable. I would definitely recommend Jeff for that peace of mind.
- G.G., December 2014
Jeff is knowledgeable and patience. He explained why certain items require inspection and provided a verbal summary at the end of inspection to bring awareness of the issues with highest severity. His detailed report includes pictures and illustrations to help explain issues further. The use of thermal detection helps us to decide whether to pursue further testings. Highly recommended!
- M.K., December 2014
Jeff is a consumate professional. He performed a comprehensive inspection of the house I was buying. Due to his thorough and meticulous inspection, he saved me literally thousands of dollars in needed repairs, corrections, replacements that were needed. I will not hesitate to use and recommend Jeff in the future. Thank you!
- C.P., El Cajon CA, November 2014
Jeff was so informative and willing to teach me about various components of the home (i.e. how to turn off the gas, flush a hot water heater, change air filters). Very professional and provided a clear report.
- M.L., November 2014
I recently had Jeff perform an inspection on a home that my wife and I were purchasing. I couldn't have been more happy with the recommendation that our agent gave us in getting Jeff. He was very professional and very thorough in everything he did. He even allowed me to follow him around and had no problem explaining things to me that I didn't understand. He went out of his way to explain everything that was going to come up on the report so there were no questions or surprises. I would recommend him to anyone in the process of purchasing a home.
- B.H., November 2014
Great job, very thorough with clear explanations and context.

- K.M., October 2014
Jeff was our home inspector. My wife and I were quickly impressed with Jeff's knowledge and with his patience as he very clearly and understandably answered each and every question we had. His taking the time to further explain home maintenance tips was greatly appreciated. We felt much more comfortable about the inspection process and with our soon to be new home as a result of our interaction with Jeff. His report was thorough and very well done. Jeff certainly knows his profession and we are very glad to have been fortunate enough to have him as our home inspector. Jim & Lucy

Jeff was incredibly professional arriving to the home early and staying past the inspection to answer all of our questions. He hit every minor detail, both inside and out of the home.
