Scott was on time and got straight to work. He was extremely thorough and knowledgable. He didn't rush and explained the major problems in detail. My sister-in-law's father is contractor that owns several properties and read the report and was very impressed by how detailed he was. Highly recommend!

Scott is fair, diligent, thorough, accurate, and efficient. A person could not ask for a better inspector. He understands how all the mechanical works. He considers the age of the home and the current state of the home. He turns on & off every appliance, water fixture, mechanical. Opens & closes all window, etc... I know when Scott has completed his inspection, what my home will need to make it safe and livable for our family. I trust Scott.

Was very thorough and patient and answered all our questions, very impressed with the home inspection and the report was ready within hours and would highly recommend both Mike and Domicile Consulting.

I began this process with a great amount of anxiety and Mike was able to turn the whole experience around for me. He is exceptionally thorough and professional as well as calming and personable. Mike explained his findings to me in clear, simple language and helped to allay my fears about buying an old building. This is the second time we have worked together and he would be the first inspector I would call if I needed another inspection done. He and Dan Cullen work well together and helped make what has been a very frustrating experience into something very manageable.A big thank you to both of you!

Great inspection ... I appreciated your candor and thoroughness. Thanks again

I would highly recommend Mike for a home inspection. He arrived on time and immediately started taking pictures of the house and before I knew it he was on the roof inspecting things. He was very thorough with every inch of the house and explained everything to me in simple terminology for me to understand. Also, he did not rush through the inspection and took time for any questions I had. Also, the report was very detailed and meticulous about what he told me along with provide suggestions for later improvements. My brother-in-law is in the trades (electrician) and was very impressed by the detailed report. If I ever need another home inspection I will definitely call Domicile Consulting! Thank you so much Mike!

Mike was great! He was friendly and knowledgable, and most importantly, took the time and effort to explain the ins and outs to us lay-people.
