Carl did a professional, thorough inspection of our new home and the reporting was great. He went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. I would definitely recommend him!
- T.C., May 2022
Carl was very professional with his inspection. He answered any and all questions I had at the time. While the house is a larger house, he took his time to go over all the details and make sure all of his notes were correct. He gave clear and easy to follow descriptions of what he was seeing and what needed to be fixed. I would highly recommend Carl to whoever needs an inspection completed.
- J.B., March 2022
Carl was quick to respond and schedule after I reached out to him. At the survey, he took his time to explain all of the items he found to me. He was friendly and thorough and the report was back to me the same day. I would 10/10 recommend.

We contacted Carl based on a family member referral and were able to arrange a prompt appointment. His knowledge and thoroughness reflected in his valuable report. We were comforted by the detail in his inspection listing the items and level of priority. We used this report and had confidence to make major decisions on a home purchase. A+ !!
- M.H., December 2021
This is the home inspector you need without question!! Not only provides an exceptional service, but a great person all around as well. Carl took the time to not only point out what wasn't perfect in the house that we're serious about purchasing, but HOW to potentially go about fixing it. Very thorough, and his after-inspection summary report reflects this as well. An outstanding individual with unparalleled service!
- L.L., October 2021
I was very pleased with his work, would call him again and recommend him to family and friends. Thank you Carl.
- P.C., August 2021
Carl was kind and professional. He went through every inch of the house; if there was a leak he found it, chipped paint he found it, a crack in the step..He found it! He was incredibly detailed and gave me a 38 page inspection, which allowed me to go into my loan with an extreme amount of confidence and comfort! My brother is a MR Fix it and he was even extremely impressed with Carl's report. I have nothing but good things to say about Carl and wouldn't consider hiring anyone else for a home inspection!
- C.S., MT PLEASANT MI, April 2021
