Great job Steve. I appreciate the quickness to get the inspection scheduled and the report completed.

I always suggest using Steve! He is always willing to explain things he finds to clients. Very knowledgeable and reliable.
- S.D., November 2018
Steve & Oliver did an excellent job inspecting this property and making notes on all findings. They also explained their findings and explained the required fixes on each item. They also did an nice job explaining what maintenance would be suggested to the home buyers.

You and Oliver are the best, thanks for being so responsive and helpful!
- J.J., November 2017
I have worked with Steve and Oliver for 5+ years and he is exceptionally detailed. I've not had any of my clients complain that something was missed and found in the future. Highly recommended.

Very thorough and conscientious inspector on a fairly non-standard home. Since I was unable to attend the inspection I had a number of follow up questions which he thoroughly addressed to help me fully understand. Thanks for all your time and help Steve!
- T.B., March 2017
Steve is the best. My "go to" inspector.
- J.S., Grand Rapids MI, February 2017
Steve is thorough and happy to explain potential issues to whatever level of detail you're comfortable with. Steve has inspected several houses for me, and I've never encountered anything that he didn't highlight. I have complete confidence in Steve, and I've made many decisions to buy or to walk based on his feedback.

Thank you for all your help with our home inspection. You provided a thorough summary of the condition of our new home. Your experience with older houses was a real asset; It allowed you to give us some tips for maintaining and improving our new-old home. Thank you!

Steve and his assistant were pleasant, efficient, knowledgeable, and professional. I have confidence in the quality of the report he delivered. He took his time answering my questions, which I appreciate. I would definitely have him inspect any future house I may purchase, and refer him to others!

I was very impressed with the thoroughness of the inspection and the detailed explanation that followed. I felt extremely well informed and was grateful for all of the items he noticed, that I wouldn't have. I highly recommend him for any home inspection!

Thank you Steve .. i sure do appreciate your attention to detail and your courteous manner. I will certainly pass your name to my friends. Dick O.
- D.O., March 2011
Steve you did a little more than what was expected to get the job done. I really appreciate excellent customer service. Thank you!
- S.M., December 2010
Thanks again for the AWESOME inspection. I feel that it is an invaluable tool for me to understand the problems in the house and to address them with a little bit of insight into what needs to happen versus just taking a contractor's word for it... that might sound mean, but you don't always know who to trust. With this report I can manage the issues that need addressing right away and move through the other issues as time and funds permit. Anyhow, I appreciate your time and my sister has already said that when she starts looking for a house, she will use your services to inspect the one she will purchase in the future. Thanks again!! Erika
