Charles Shaver did a great job. His inspection was very thorough and provided valuable information. One comment for the follow up service is: if the system could send out email about "Create the request list" earlier - maybe the same time when the report is available, it could be more useful to me. In my case, I already talk to my realtor to create a request list before getting email from the system. Thank you for your service!

We called Charles to do a home inspection prior to purchasing a 80-year old house in Detroit. Charles was responsive, pleasant, professional, thorough, and very informative. We warned him up front that as first-time homeowners, we had very limited knowledge. He took the time and care to point out what he was seeing, how the problem could be addressed, and who should be doing the repairs and when. The report was provided within 30 minutes following the inspection and just as thorough. Thanks, Charles!
- M.A., April 2017
Great Job and fair prices. Charles was very diligent and responsive to all my questions. Even though I'm out of state he has been my eyes and ears when it came to buying a home unseen. Would definitely recommend him to all friends and investors. J.C.O California April 23rd, 2017

As first time home buyers you were so helpful in knowing what we need to fix and how to take care of things that wouldn't come naturally to someone who hasn't owned before. I've already recommended you to a friend who's in the market to buy a house, and I'll tell other friends about you when they're ready to buy as well! And when the time comes to purchase our next house, we'll surely be giving you a call! Thanks for everything!
