Thank you for the thorough inspection and taking the extra time to address our specific concerns. Your wealth of knowledge certainly helped settle some fears and made us aware of other issues we may not have discovered on our own. We are much more comfortable with the purchase of our future home after your input.

Joe is the man! I would suggest him for any job, large or small. The attention to detail is second to none, and he's more than willing to explain everything to you, in person, on site!
- B.C., October 2015
Joe does is very thorough and is a consumate professional. Important to me is that he takes the time to answer questions in a non-technical way so that laymen -- like me -- can really understand his report and the specifics of what needs to be done. Joe is our go-to-first-guy. Thanks, Joe. Doug DeCarlo and Radavie Riom

Best inspection ever. Thanks, Joe, for the incredibly detailed report and an informative walk-through that really helped me understand how best to move forward. I feel like our meeting showed me what to expect for the next several years as a homeowner, while also getting me excited about my purchase. I sent my report to my dad, a property manager for decades, and he said it was one of the most thorough he'd ever seen. So glad to work with you, Joe!

As a real estate agent, I have been using Joe for all of my inspections for nearly 2 years now. I highly recommend him to all of my clients, as he is honest, extremely thorough, very knowledgeable about the home inspection process, is an excellent communicator, and very professional. His reports are delivered on the day of inspection, so there's no waiting around wondering where your report is. He makes it seamless by arranging the radon, pest, and water inspections - He's a one-stop-shop! Thanks Joe for all you do!

Joe was very professional and extremely thorough. He was more than happy to have me tag-along throughout the inspection process so I could get a good idea of the condition of the house. He caught a potential structural problem with the foundation (that past inspectors had overlooked) which could have been catastrophic in the future. I would highly recommend Joe Farris to anyone in the process of purchasing a home. Absolutely outstanding work.
