Jimmie did a very thorough inspection and report. During the walk-through, he explained everything in a way I actually understood which is saying something because I truly have no experience with this kind of thing. As we walked through he also gave me tips on things to keep an eye on through the house, things I needed to replace every so often, and things I need to make sure I don't let sit without attention for too long. I feel like I know a lot more about what I am getting into with my house and am confident I can handle it. Highly recommend him!

Jimmie is thorough both his inspection and report. He provides great photos and details to explain what he sees. 10 Stars!!!
- M.R., Bloomington IL, September 2022
We were thoroughly impressed with the attention to detail that Jimmie put into the inspection of our new home! He took the time after completing his inspection and walked us through each room and all around the outside of the house and pointed out even the most minute of details that he caught during the inspection. We feel confident in our choice of home to purchase because of his inspection. He emailed us the official inspection report in a timely manner and it is easy to read and understand. The pictures and explanations with each picture leaves nothing to question because we were given clear and concise information on each thing he put in the report. We are very happy that we had Jimmie come to do our home inspection and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an inspector, hands down! Sronce Household, July 2022
- V.S., Heyworth IL, July 2022
We were thoroughly impressed with our inspection. Jimmi was available quickly and provides the results in a timely manner. His knowledge of regulations was immensely impressive. He was very detailed in pointing out the smallest of things to the major things. He took his time walking us through every room of the house and explaining everything he found to us. He made our decision to purchase a home a confident one. We would highly recommend Evans Home Inspections.
- N.W., Flanagan IL, May 2022

- B.C., Bloomington IL, April 2021
Jimmie was the very best. He took the time to walk us through every detail (many that would have never occurred to us). He was very professional and friendly and made the information he was giving us very easy to understand. He also gave us excellent advice on what he would do as a homeowner to have the home be its’ very best inside and out for safety and to avoid any future problems. The report Jimmie submitted was impeccable. There was so much information that it could have easily become overwhelming and yet, he made the report so clear, concise and user-friendly that we were able to read through it with no questions at all. The photos were clear and helped provide a very helpful visual to point out each detail he explained in his report. I would (and will) recommend Jimmie to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home. I trust his work wholeheartedly and believe we truly got the best inspector and home inspection ever. In this current crazy seller’s market, I feel completely safe purchasing this home knowing Jimmie has given it his approval.

It was a pleasure working with him, and would absolutely refer him to anyone looking for a home inspection.

- J.J., Normal IL, September 2018
Jimmy was incredibly thorough and very friendly. He will explain anything that you ask about, such that you will understand completely. His attention to detail is amazing for example, he was able to spot signs of a roof leak that were next to impossible to see. He was able to find several safety issues that prompted a well needed response, preventing potential lost money or peace of mind prior to purchase. Understanding that being a home owner will always require a fix or replacement from time to time, he made us well aware of items that will need to be taken care of and if not, how it could cause further problems in the future.

Jimmie has a really good eye. Great attention to detail, very thorough, excellent report and takes his time to explain everything. He's been a tradesman in many of the fields he inspects so knows what he is talking about. It's just plain foolish to not have a home your going to throw a pile of money at inspected. It's just as foolish to "bargain hunt" to save a few bucks. With this being said, his price was very reasonable and even came in under the other person my real estate agent initially suggested. And he identified a very big potential problem for us which we are investigating now. Glad I used him! And on top of it all he's a really nice guy! Now you can't beat that. Thanks Jimmie!
