Thank you so much Mike! You are extremely prompt at getting the inspection scheduled. We appreciated all the time you spent with us and the knowledge you imparted on us about the home. Excellent!

We were very impressed with the inspection! Being first time home buyers we were nervous and didnt know what to expect, but Mike took the time to explain and thoroughly go through everything. We never felt like he was rushing and appreciated the patience he had with any questions we had. We will definitely recommend him!

Mike did an absolutely outstanding job in my home inspection. He was very accommodating in the set up and scheduling of the inspection. We also needed a radon test done and he has the capability to do a short term radon test along with the home inspection itself. He also knows what he is talking about. His background is a handyman and along the home inspection gave us great advice on anything that had a defect, and how we should go about fixing that. He covered every single part of the house for us and gave us the results in a straightforward way. He is very thorough with his work and very easygoing and nice to work with. I would absolutely recommend Mike to anyone needing an inspection in the area.

I chose Mike for my home inspections because he is ASHI certified. He saved me from a potential money pit with the first home he inspected for me. I appreciated the thorough explanation of all the areas that would need to be addressed in the 100 plus year old home. The report gave me enough information to determine whether or not it was a good fit for me. He gave just as thorough of an inspection and report on the second home he inspected for me. It gave me an idea of those things that would need to be addressed immediately and in the future to minimize any surprises. I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for a complete home inspection.

Mike is so thorough and explains everything in terms that are understandable. He also interacts with homeowner and realtor in a confident, polite manner. I would always want Mike Bender to inspect my home and would definitely recommend him to friends.

Thanks Mike for the very complete home inspection & prompt report!

Money well spent! Mike is very professional and thorough in his inspection process. He doesn't miss a thing. His final report was emailed to me the same day. The report is well organized and every issue is well documented including photos. Mike Bender definitely exceeded my expectations.

Thank you Michael for doing an excellent job. As first time home buyers we knew little about inspecting the house we wanted to buy. Michael provided a very complete report of everything we needed to know and he saw so many things we missed when looking at the home on our own. Michael is clearly experienced and his work ethic is rock solid. Our experience was so good I must provide positive feedback. We received so much helpful advice - Its great to find out what the house is really going to cost to fix up rather than our belief that what we saw looked fine and was therefore good enough. We almost walked into a money pit. Sincerely, M. Colby

I was Very happy with his work, It took some time but I was glad he was very detail oriented and did a good job at explaining everything that he had found. I would definitely use his services again.

I am so happy I found mike to do our home inspection. I had no idea what to expect since this I was our first time buying a home. He was early and easy to talk to. He pointed out things to my fiancÚ and I to help us understand the things he was looking at during the inspection. Most of all he was thorough with the report and I would highly recommend him!

Mike, Thanks for being so professional, observant, and knowledgeable. I feel much better about my decision to purchase this house after your inspection. You seem to have discovered all/any issues with the house. Thanks for working around my schedule so I did not have to take time off from work. Paul

We are first time home buyers and we're very happy that we chose Mike. His affiliation with ASHI was reassuring because we know they are stringent on who can be ASHI certified. He made sure to explain various things and take the extra time to give us tips even if nothing was wrong so we could have a better sense of the structure of our home. We both feel better equipped to be homeowners because he took that extra time. His inspection was very comprehensive - we know from his inspection the house's worry spots, what issues need to be fixed right now or later, and what we can expect to worry about in a few years. In addition, he was professional but approachable and friendly. He does a great job explaining issues (what the issue is and why it is important) which helped us to get a better sense of how critical an issue could be. Loved working with him and were very happy with the results!
