Was prompt and completed the inspection in the time allotted; knew exactly what to look for - and plainly explained any issues on the spot; good to work with - had a good sense of humor that made the inspection seem to go by faster, and issued the final inspection report promptly. Highly recommended!

Very much enjoyed meeting, talking and working with you. Really appreciate all your input and insights. Loved the password you set up. It cioncided with a question I had for you after the inspection and we all had left the property. Have a couple more questions for you, and will be calling to discus.

Grover is very knowledgable, thorough, and best of all, he is efficient. Grover inspected every aspect of a 5000 sq.ft. home in about half the time it would take many inspectors. I see the main difference as a lack of theatricality on the part of this inspector. Thank you, Grover, for a job well done.
