As a real estate agent, I need pros that I can count on to help my clients sell or buy real estate. Bobby is at the top of my list for home inspections. He is knowledgeable, helpful and responsive. He has a friendly but professional demeanor and patiently explains things in a way everyone can understand. He has actually helped many of my clients get to the closing sooner and with less headaches because of issues that took the extra effort to discover. Lastly, Cardinal has a great website and signing up for an inspection is incredible user friendly.

Mr. Schmutzler is extremely professional and thorough!!! He meticulously inspected every inch of this home insuring he left no stone unturned.

Mr. Schmutzler (Bobby) conducted a professional and thorough inspection based on detailed knowledge of the many technical requirements for basic construction, safety and household systems and appliances. He also prepared and detailed and clear report with understandable statements of issues identified. I personally appreciate that he was gracious and patient enough to explain how he inspected, used his equipment and made determinations of issues. I certainly will recommend him to other potential users. Sincerely, Steve Johnson

I find it very difficult to imagine a more thorough inspection. I don't have any experience with the rest of the inspectors you guys have on staff at Cardinal, but if they're half as good as Bobby I'd recommend them in a heartbeat. Bobby thanks for all your help and hard work.
- B.W., June 2016
Bobby was on time and very pleasant to interact with. He has a great sense of humor and was able to provide a thorough and accurate report of the condition of the home even with a house full of people in his way. He was able to point out things that I missed when walking the property and answer any questions I had on the severity of the issues found. I would highly recommend him.
- R.M., May 2016
Bobby is thorough. He crawled all over that house looking to see if the house had been repaired as it should (this was a re-inspection). I highly recommend his service. He is pleasant and professional. Thanks, Bobby. :)

Bobby arrived on time and introduced himself. He was clean cut and professionally dressed. He is very professional, friendly, personable, and knowledgeable. He answered all my questions throughout the inspection and even offered me a pair of overalls to wear because I told him I was going under the crawl space with him. He pointed out the type of plumbing, moisture readings and explained the readings, what they should & should not be. Bobby made sure that all my questions were completely answered and he seemed happy to answer them. I would certainly request Bobby to perform the next house inspection if I needed one. Thank you!!

Bobby was very friendly and very knowledgeable on all aspects of the Home Inspection. He took the time to show and explain some of the features the home has and it was important to know. There were some faults in the house to which an explanation of why it happens and what to do to fix the problem was given. Bobby was very thorough and has all the tools and gadgets necessary to complete the inspection. I am very pleased with the final report, and the detailed information for each area inspected. There is also an overview highlighting the key areas to look at which is very helpful. All repairs were explained and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I would certainly recommend him as an inspector to anyone needing a home inspection!

- W.B., April 2016
Bobby: It was a pleasure meeting you and working with you as you went through the home inspection with me. Great job! My only comment, and it may not be included in your normal scope of work, was that there was several planks missing in the yard fence and one sticking out with nails in it by the sidewalk. I would have liked to have seen that in the report if possible. Other than that minor issue, I'd recommend you to anyone for a home inspection.
- M.O., April 2016

I didn't meet Bobby but I found his inspection report to be very thorough and his recommendations helpful.
- L.S., February 2016
Bob is a super inspector and has no issues explaining deficiencies to clients of mine. He is courteous and seems to enjoy getting to know my clients in the time he is with them. His explanations are simple to understand. Bob arrived at the house early enough to complete the roof inspection. Being a Friday afternoon, it was super not to have to be in afternoon traffic heading back to Mt. Pleasant. It was super to be able to get to the interior inspection upon arrival just prior to our inspection time.
- C.L., February 2016
Bobby was excellent! He arrived a few minutes early, did not rush through his inspection of the property and did a very professional job. He spent 30 minutes with us at the conclusion of his inspection and verbally reviewed his findings with us and showed us detailed pictures. He answered all our questions and made sure that we understood his answers to our questions.
- J.W., February 2016
Bob just completed a report for my Buyer's client. It was the 1st time that I worked with Bob but found his work to be superior. I would strongly recommend Bob & Cardinal to anyone looking for a solid inspection company.

Knowledgable, THOROUGH, and a generally nice guy. USE HIM! My agent was happy to see it was Bobby conducting our inspection. He explained what we was doing and checked every single thing in and around the house, telling me in simple terms what issues were there, what they'd lead to and recommended corrective action in a nice simplified summary (with photos). I enjoyed spending 2 hrs with this inspector! If you use Bobby, you'll feel confident that you're not buying a money pit!!!
- N.W., November 2015
You are a 10 in my book, Bobby. Thank you for making the client feel part of the process and to be informed on the present condition of the home and how to improve it with maintenance.

Bobby is the best inspector I've ever worked with. He's professional, knowledgeable, punctual, and goes above and beyond. Most of all, he makes you feel at ease. Inspections can be scary for anyone, especially for the first time home buyers. With Bobby's help, he has the ability to translate the "what seems to be scary items" into "it's normal routine maintenance". His personality shines throughout the entire process. He also helps you with whatever you need post inspection. I am proud to work side by side with Bobby!
- M.N., October 2015
I will definitely be requesting another inspection from Bobby. Very easy to work with and I appreciate you giving me a call back during your Friday evening to answer a question my client had. Great service and an inspection that was not over the top. Thanks again.
