With all of the excitement that comes along with home shopping, I believe many people overlook the importance of having their future home inspected before committing. Many people trust their "buddy" agent or the seller's agent to provide the knowledge they need regarding the structure, wiring , etc. I know couples in my age group often rely on their father or grandfather (who has always been had with a hammer) to "okay" the property for them. People, YOU NEED A CERTIFIED HOME INSPECTOR. Now, I have bought and sold many homes , and will tell you first hand- not all inspectors are created equal. Many home inspectors lack the knowledge, equipment and integrity to do a thorough job in protecting the buyer. Michael Shaver is one you can trust. He is punctual, honest, thorough knowledgeable and prepared. He will treat you like family and inspect the home as if he were the one buying it. I couldn't imagine hiring anyone else to inspect my prospective properties! Thanks for the wonderful work, Mike!!

The home inspection was by far the most complete and open home inspection process our family has ever been involved with as home buyers. We have purchased and sold three homes over the years while serving in the military. In one of our previous purchases our family incurred significant financial loss in order to make the home safe and sound for our family. These issues should have been easily caught by a knowledgeable and competent home inspector. We now know how important a proper home inspection is to a family undertaking a large financial investment to provide a safe environment for their family. Therefore, this should never be a check the box process in order to make a quick buck, or just to enable the purchase of a home to move forward. We will certainly use Mike in any future home inspections and highly recommend his "Buy Wise" business practices to anyone in need of a honest and thorough home inspection.

Mike was both professional and easy to do business with; saving us time and money by coordinating our termite inspection. His inspection report far exceeded my expectations. It was very thorough and contained several high resolution photos highlighting areas of inspection and/or potential problems. I would use Mike again and certainly recommend his services to others.

While I'm knowledgeable about homes and their systems, I decided I would hire a Home Inspector for this purchase. Michael Shaver was highly recommended to us. I met Michael at the home to be inspected. I learned things about the home that I would not have known about if I had viewed the house on my own. Michael is knowledgeable about construction and the mechanical systems of the house. He gladly explains issues (and nonissue) with the home. His price is reasonable and his desire to do a good job is apparent.

Mike was very thorough in his inspection and made himself available for any questions we had. His knowledge and expertise brought peace of mind with the purchase of the property. We were going to purchase another property but his honest evaluation prevented us from entering a money pit. We used him again for another home shortly after the deal fell through and he did the inspection free of charge! This is the third home we have bought and Mike went above and beyond in providing exceptional service compared to past inspectors we have used. If we ever need an inspection again, we will definitely use him. We highly recommend him for your home inspection. He provides quality, efficient and honest inspections.

Michael Shaver did an outstanding job on our home inspection.

Mike was very thorough, in my opinion, in his inspection. He gave detailed information back to us, including very good pictures, which will be very helpful in making repairs. And the price for the inspection was right as well. Thank you for your time and effort, Mike.

I have been through several home inspections, in several different states, and I have never seen anyone be as meticulous and thorough as Mike Shaver. He took his time and checked out every detail of the new home I am buying, and he took the time to point out specifics and to clearly explain them to me (without talking down to me, or over my head!) Extremely personable and completely professional! I highly recommend him and would use his services again in a heartbeat!
- J.M., Owensboro KY, April 2015

Thank you for the impeccable service! We will definitely be using his services in the future!

Mike Shaver did an extraordinary job. He's really hardcore when it comes to getting down and dirty in crawlspaces and inspecting roofs. He's meticulous, experienced, and I'm going to recommend him to everyone I know.

Mike from Buy Wise was very knowledgable and informative. He arrived on time,was courteous, and respectful of myself and my property. He answered all questions I had at the time of inspection and if there was anything he was unsure of he quickly got me an answer.
