Gregg represents the name of his company well, 1st Choice Home/Property Inspections. If you need a comprehensive, detailed Home and Property Inspection done, with a report that substantiates the work performed and the findings, Gregg should be your first choice. He’s detailed in the methods used to complete his inspections. He’s always on time and extremely friendly and best of all when the inspection is completed he sits with you and discusses his findings. All other inspectors I’ve dealt with in the past simple visit the property, do the inspection, hand you a business card and email you a report. They don’t take the extra few minutes to go over their report with you and answer any questions you may have while you’re still at the property. Gregg should be the first person you think of when needing an inspection completed. Fredo, Broker Island Brother Realty

I'm currently representing the sellers on a huge property in Villa Park and the buyers hired Gregg to do the inspection for them. I was very impressed. He is one of the most if not the most professional knowledgeable inspector I've ever come in contact with and I've been doing this over 10 years. Great efficient inspection and great use of technology. My favorite part of the day was when he hands me a flash drive on his way out the door saying here's the entire inspection for you. Very impressive.

Gregg was on-time, in fact he was early. He performed the inspection thoroughly and completed the summary immediately afterwards. He was helpful with questions, available for calls, and informative. Would definitely recommend!
- S.P., January 2016
I will highly recommend Greg Traum! He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He arrived early and was fully prepared and ready to go when buyers arrived. He was interactive with buyers and answered all their questions. He reviewed his findings in detail and offered assistance should they have any questions while reviewing the report at home. Most importantly, the buyers felt they received a very thorough inspection for their money!

Gregg conducted the home inspection on a Tuesday on short notice; unfortunately, we were not able to be there. He reviewed parts of the report with us after emailed to us, though. It was great that the report was available immediately, too, and included detailed photos of any issues.
