- C.E., August 2018
Thank you so much for not only a QUICK RESPONSE, on a Saturday, but also for a thorough inspection, quick identification of the biggest issues (which were pretty benign, all things considered), and then spending anther hour as I summed up a repair plan, discussed your family and involvement in the community, insights on the 'newer' construction; what worked well, and what didn't / needs further improvement, etc. Cheap at twice the price, thank you! - Mark

James Pate was one of the most thorough, kind hearted people I have ever worked with. I called James requesting an inspection on a house my fiancé and I were interested in buying. Within 24 hours he had already set up a time within the week to inspect the house. The night of the inspection he sent us very thorough results with photographs and information on what needed to be repaired. I talked to James several times on the phone about the inspection report and solicited his advice on what was most crucial to fix right away. James was so helpful and even gave suggestions on which neighborhoods were the safest/most desirable in Corpus Christi, and which route my fiancé should take to get to work everyday. If you work with James you will not regret it! He is amazing! Thank you James! -Lisa S., NC
