This is the second time I used Eric in buying property in South Portland, ME. He does a very thorough and professional inspection. He is always friendly and does not mind any questions or concerns I may have. Eric points out any imperfections but he also explains which items I may have to really be concerned with and those that are less serious in nature. I feel completely informed when Eric provides his report. David H. South Portland, ME
