Talk about thorough!! As a first time home buyer, I was made aware of every possible thing in the house. A 2-hour inspection followed with a detailed analysis with pictures emailed to me. I feel prepared and confident knowing what will need to be addressed now and down the road. Extremely professional and knowledgeable. It is worth the money you pay to have a proper inspection. I highly recommend Don!

This being our 1st home buying experiencing, we'd heard a lot of about choosing the right inspector and the risks of choosing the wrong one. Not only was the experience of scheduling everything through Angela in the 20/20 Home Inspection office effortless, but meeting and experiencing the inspection process with Don was very informative and he walked/talked us through it along the way. His meticulous nature and attention to detail really showed through on his very detailed and thorough inspection report. I would highly recommend Don to any future home buyers! Thanks again Don for your professionalism and expertise.

- P.D., Keyport NJ, April 2013
Don Oakes conducted his inspection with efficiency, an eye on details of importance while maintaining an ease of communication. As a real estate professional, the manners of the inspector to convey the condition of a home honestly without understating or overstating things is an important part of this process to all involved. Moreover, if a home happens to be in above average or good shape - despite some expected normal defects - it is also of great comfort and assurance to a Buyer and Seller to state the case. Don Oakes is a professional with an approachable, positive attitude. From one professional to another, that is appreciated...Jim Casaburi, RE/MAX Award Realtors, Brick, NJ
- J.C., March 2013

Donald was great. Did a professional job as I've come to notice this comes with 20/20 Home inspection. The job is thorough and you're kept well informed throughout the entire inspection process. Donald explains everything to you as he walks you through the entire inspection process and shows you everything so you're aware first hand on what he is seeing and the issues that need to be addressed. I have to say I will continue to use and recommend 20/20 home inspections to everyone I know. I felt very confident that the inspection was being done in the best interest of me the buyer and not just treated as a paid job or just another day at an inspection site.I have used them for 3 home inspections as myself and my fiance are looking for our first home. Thumbs up Donald and 20/20. Excellent job and very professional easy going guy. Thanks again for a great inspection.
