George does a very thorough job and is extremely knowledgeable. I have used George twice now and he has been responsive to my questions and timely in performing the inspection. He really does a quality job.
- P.G., April 2017
George was polite, personable and very detailed. He took the time to explain things and walked you through each step. He made sure you understood everything and gave you opportunities to ask questions and even encouraged you to ask questions. No question was a dumb question to George. Not only did he follow up with me the following day, but also said if I would have any questions later to not hesitate to get in touch with him. I couldn't have asked for a better or more thorough inspector!
- M.M., April 2017
This is the review I left on Yelp and Angie's list: George was expedient, detailed, thorough, and produced our final report within hours. Everyone that saw the report was impressed with how detailed George was. He is responsive and follows through quickly. I would highly recommend George to anyone!
- S.R., March 2017
Thorough and knowledgeable, I'm completely satisfied.
- S.L., March 2017
George did a great job with the inspection. Everyone told me he is the best, and now I know why. Thanks George!
- M.C., March 2017
Very thorough with an amazing attention to detail.
- S.R., March 2017
George does a very thorough job. He always takes the time to explain everything. I never feel rushed.
- A.E., Winnetka IL, March 2017
George, Thanks for your great service and for producing a timely and thorough inspection report! Katie Coogan
- K.C., Winnetka IL, February 2017
Thank you so much, George! It was a pleasure working with you. You were so friendly, helpful and thorough during your inspection, which we really appreciate as first time home buyers. You were so great at answering any of our questions or concerns during the home inspection, and the report you sent us is well-written, very user-friendly and detailed, which is what we were looking for. We will be sure to recommend your services to any friends or family looking to purchase a home in the area. Thank you again!
- C.H., February 2017
George was great! He was very thorough and walked me through each step of the inspection to keep me informed. The report is detailed and he completed it very quickly.
- M.D., February 2017
George was able to arrange his schedule to do my inspection the day before. He came to the property earlier and had already inspected the roof and foundation. Inside he was very thorough, and explained all potential problems and if they needed immediate attention or can be corrected at a later date. I felt he did an excellent job and addressed my concerns. His report was also very helpful with good pictures and explanations. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
- J.P., January 2017
Very thorough and pays attention to details, which is very essential for a home inspection.
- S.G., Chicago IL, January 2017
Great job! I look forward to working with him in the future.
- C.L., January 2017
I love how George interacts with my clients. He likes to educate them and helps them understand how everything works and how to maintain them. The only suggestion I would give is to add in the report a way to rate the significance of an issue reported (mild, moderate, extreme) or something similar (minor/major; cosmetic/safety issue; etc). It would help me and my clients to understand the significance of any items called out or in disrepair. Thanks again and I will definitely be using George again!! Loreal
- L.U., January 2017
George did a very good job overall. It snowed the day before we had the inspection, so not able to visually climb up and inspect the roof, gutters and chimney. Prompt and on time. Explained to us a few things he found when meeting us. Inspection report was very detailed. I was impressed on how fast he got the report to us. I would highly recommend.
- P.G., December 2016
George was the most professional, knowledgeable, informative and practical home inspector I've ever worked with. He turns out his report immediately and is generous with good advice at a competitive price. George is very personable and a pleasure to work with. A+ George! Thank you.
- G.E., December 2016
George was very thorough, informative, and professional. He made me feel more comfortable with the investment I was making in my home, and put me in a better position to negotiate the terms of buying the property. His report was very easy to follow and included pictures of everything. I'd recommend George to anyone in need of a home inspection.
- A.B., Evanston IL, December 2016
George did a thorough inspection for my buyers. They were very happy with his work and the extensive report that they can refer to in the purchase and care of their new home. Thanks again George!
- E.B., December 2016
George did a great job, was very open to discussing issues and potential issues during the inspection and definitely went the extra mile while on the job. His report was detailed, organized and very useful in the rest of the home buying process. Highly recommended!
- C.Y., November 2016
George, I was very pleased with your inspection. It help tremendously in my purchase price. My next buy will also include your service. Thank you, peter p.
- P.P., November 2016
George helped us inspected two homes, and in both instances George done an excellent job. George allowed us to tag along with him while he inspected each area of the house (outside, inside, attic, backyard, trees affecting home, basement, electric panel, furnace, heating, water, etc… basically every corner of the home). During the inspection process George explained what he was doing and what he was observing, pin pointed the problems, provided the reason for the problem, provided his recommendation and solution, and more importantly allowed us to ask questions. George also provided a very detail inspection report within 24 hours for us to review. With this report, we were well informed about the condition of the home which assisted us with our decision making. We walked away from one purchase due to concrete foundation and moisture in the basement that would be a disaster for us down the line. All-in-all, George was friendly and great to work with. I highly recommend George if you’re looking for an inspector for your new house.
- M.L., November 2016
George performed a very professional inspection for my client. His understanding of the process and explanation of the items he inspected in a comprehensive and yet understanding manner was very helpful to the very inquisitive Buyer.
- R.P., Stillman Valley IL, October 2016
Very thorough in all of his work and explained all that he did.
- M.K., October 2016
When selling our home there were inspections by three different companies. I found George Norberg to be most respectful of the home. The report was well organized, easy to understand with clear pictures. When it was time to inspect the home we were buying we received the same excellent service.
- T.K., September 2016
Unfortunately this was my first inspection so really don't have anything to compare to. Overall friendly and professional.
- I.F., September 2016
George did an excellent job on the condo inspection. Very thorough, and called our attention to two areas of concern. Without George's report and knowledge, our Attorney Review letter would have been severely lacking.
- W.S., September 2016
Very satisfied with George thorough explanation of his inspection techniques, tips and advice, and overall demeanor. We are very satisfied with the service he provided and will recommend Detail Home Inspection, Inc. to other homebuyers.
- F.N., September 2016

- T.G., September 2016
George was extremely thorough in his inspection, and we received the inspection report the same day. George was friendly and took care to make sure we followed what he was saying and answered the many questions we had. He not only inspected the house, but gave us very useful and practical advice on proper maintenance of a home, information crucial for first time homebuyers like ourselves. I would definitely recommend George to all potential homebuyers, and thanks again George for the great service and speedy report analysis! Best, Jonathan and Michelle Johnson

George is an excellent inspector. He inspected two homes for us, one that we didn't end up purchasing because of issues George found during inspection.

adolph and karen want to thank george for his extencive inspection of our new home above and beyond great experience
- A.R., June 2016
George is very customer oriented. He is very pleasant to talk to. He will go over the items that he is showing you and thinks about root cause of any issues he is identifying to help the home owner with remediation(s). I had compared him to some. i like that he was not a fast talking salesman like others i contacted. his reports were on par with what was expected and the photos help in making sure issues were documented for the owner of the house to inspect as well. overall a good inspection.
- V.V., May 2016
George was a true pleasure to work with. He was very understanding with all of our general questions and did an excellent job of explaining everything that we looked at and went through.

George did a great job for us. He was professional, thorough and informative. He went the extra mile for us by going up on the roof of the condo building to inspect the a/c, which was no easy task. He provided us with a comprehensive inspection report the same day. Couldn't be more pleased!
- , April 2016
George was excellent, thoughtful, courteous and careful. I am used to home inspection with estimate ranges for needed repairs. This is the norm in Canada and would be a significant service enhancement. Just a suggestion.
- W.B., April 2016
The report was very thorough and I recieved it very fast. Lots of pictures which helped to know what needed to be repaired.
- N.K., April 2016

- M.M., March 2016
Hello George, As I commented to you as we walked around the property, I have never purchased a home or observed a home inspection before. None-the-less, I was very convinced of the quality and DETAIL of your inspection after only a short time of watching you work. The answers and explanations you gave in response to my questions helped me to understand what you were seeing. Maybe I asked more questions than the average home buyer, but you were patient and generous with the time you gave to our inspection. Need I say more? Well, your written report was just as thorough, detailed and easy to understand as you were in person. Many thanks; excellent work! Sincerely, John V.
- J.V., Northbrook IL, March 2016

- D.B., chicago IL, March 2016
George was extremely thorough and did an excellent job explaining everything in the house. Additionally, his report includes detailed explanations and pictures of the cited area. He climbed into every nook and crawl space to examine the property. I would highly recommend George!
- P.F., Manalapan NJ, March 2016
I thought Goerge did a great job with the inspection. He was extremely thorough and open to assessing things I pointed out; i.e., water damage on various walls and skylights. He took everything I said seriously and did not discount what I was asking. We had a subcontractor in to assess basement water issues and he took special care to ensure we both were up to speed on what was being communicated. My only area of possible improvement/constructive feedback is to control emotions when frustrated. There was a water heater that was difficult to access in the ceiling and the way he handled the situation was out of frustration and made things slightly uncomfortable for a few minutes. With that being said, I would have been frustrated if I was in his shoes because it was a pain to deal with and an unforeseen time-suck. I would, without hesitation, use George for another inspection.
- J.R., San Franciscon CA, March 2016
Prompt and a good communicator, which is what you're looking for. George also gave us some recommendations for contractors and pointed out little things we can do ourselves. This was our first home inspection, but it seemed like George have us exactly what we needed.
- C.S., Culver City CA, February 2016
Thank you for doing such a thorough job on the inspection. From the speed and absoluteness with which you identified and commented on every aspect of the house, it was clear you knew exactly what you were talking about. I appreciated your advice on ongoing maintenance and how to address issues with the seller.
- T.P., February 2016
George did such a great home inspection! He was incredibly thorough and so detail oriented. He definitely is the only home inspector to use when buying a home!
- M.M., February 2016
Thank you, George - once again you've performed yet another thorough and informative inspection! My clients are always quite pleased with your ability to explain inspection issues, along with home maintenance tips. Priceless information!
- D.K., Winnetka IL, February 2016
My client is a first time home buyer and I was not able to be at the inspection, something I always want to be at. I told him he was in good hands with George. My client thanked me for referring George and he felt so taken care of because George did an excellent job of explaining everything to him in detail and answering all of his questions. I will always recommend George to my clients because of his professionalism, knowledge and ease to work with him.

George did it all. On time, thorough, and took the time to explain what we were finding.
