Jeff completely exceeded any expectations I had before about home inspectors!! After the inspection was completed Jeff took me around my home and explaining things and showing me important details about my home that I needed to know. This gave me so much comfort knowing I chose the right company! Now I am able to complete my home purchase with confidence. I have learned so much about my new home. The detailed written report has great information for future reference. THANK YOU JEFF!!!!
- M.M., July 2019
Jeff did a great job and, a week after the inspection, he made himself available to talk to us by phone to help us better understand the problem areas in our home and roughly how much it would cost to fix them. I would definitely recommend Jeff to any other prospective home buyer.
- M.P., June 2019
Quite impressed with the Full Report and Summary. I met with Jeff at the end of the inspection. Jeff went over the priority defects explaining each without drama or unnecessary techno-crap often spouted by other less qualified inspectors. Jeff conducted a safe, thorough inspection. I will definitely call on Jeff for future inspections in his service area. Having dealt with other home inspection firms around the country, Jeff is by far the best When you want to believe the property is perfect, it is imperative to have Jeff on your side to provide a painfully objective report. His repair list proved invaluable both for us as well as the seller.
