My realtor had strongly recommended Colvin's Quality Inspections, and I am so very pleased he did. Leslie provided very thorough inspections on two different properties that I was evaluating for purchase. On both occasions, he was very flexible with his schedule to accompany everyone involved. His inspection summaries were quite detailed and he offered extra time to provide added context with me by phone, as I could not be onsite for one of the inspections. His input greatly helped with my decision-making, plus his reports enabled my realtor and me to negotiate needed repairs. Leslie is professional and truly enjoyable to talk with. I recommend his services if purchasing a property on the peninsula. Tim McGuill

Leslie Colvin took the time to explain everything he was going to be looking at and was very thorough in his inspection. I had called on a Friday afternoon and they took the time to call us on a Saturday to schedule the inspection for the following Wednesday. He went over things with again after the inspection. Definitely would hire him again. Thank you Leslie.

- R.G., Astoria OR, September 2013
Les was great. To begin with Les recommended that I be there for the inspection. Then before he started his inspection he told me where he would be starting and exactly what he would be doing. Anything he thought was important enough for him to include in his report, he would then ask me if I wanted to see it. He even offered me a pair of disposable coveralls to crawl around underneath the house to see exactly how he performed his inspection and what he was looking for and what those signs were. His inspection took about 5 hrs. and he covered everything. I would recommend Les to anyone who asked me for "a good home inspector. He was very, very professional the very best.
- B.W., Des Moines WA, July 2013
Thank you for the thorough inspection. Brian and I felt our potential investment was in good hands with your expert inspection and overall knowledge. We appreciated the comfort level we felt. We also enjoyed the conversation. Taking the time to get to know someone a bit while doing business is a quickly fading courtesy. Thank you for taking the time!

Les provided a home inspection for us 5/16/13. He appeared knowledgeable,experienced, thorough, and completed his report in better than a timely fashion! Les was open to questions, suggestions, and appeared sensitive and fair to both the potential buyer, the agent and the seller. Generally, a friendly guy. We believe Les is the guy to call ~ he knows how a house should be! Jim and Lina Grace

- D.K., Washougal WA, April 2013
thanks for the excellentt and through inspection.... Glenn & Beth
- G.M., Castle Rock WA, November 2012 did a great job. The reason I don't give it a 10 is that I always leave room for improvement because the human race as a whole will never be perfect and it is always out there as a goal we all strive to achieve but never will. That's why we are humans. The only perfect score I would ever give anything is mother nature and it took her 3 1/2 billion years to create an envirioment that humans can live in...thanks....Gene Lilly.

Les Colvin does one of the most thorough reports of any Home Inspector that I have used over my twelve year in real estate. Les provides clients with excellent pictures of the exterior and interior along with details when something needs to be repaired or replaced. My clients always comment that his rates are fair, he completes his reports in a timely manner and he is willing to go discuss his reports with clients. Les tells it like it is.
- J.J., Ocean Park WA, August 2009
I think I already filled this out but, if not, I highly recommend Les to inspect your home. He is both professional and thorough and I highly recommend him.
