Joe was awesome! Even though the property was a rehab and most things appeared to be in good shape, he still took his time with the inspection. Joe & his partner were thorough and went above and beyond to explain everything.

Joe did a very thorough inspection of the home we looking to purchase. During the walk through he took the time to explain everything to my husband and myself. If he felt something was going to be a concern for us in the near future he was able to tell us within reason how soon that item would need to be addressed and about how much it would cost us. That is very helpful when considering whether or not to purchase a home. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone.

You are awesome at what you do, even though it is bad news that you give people, you really are the warning before the incorrect purchase. Hopefully, in my case the seller will comply and we will meet again for one final inspection. Your services are awesome JOE!!!!! You are very knowledgeable and extremely nice dealing with two women that don't know a great deal about homes but are learning as they go!!!!!
- C.M., October 2012
The inspector was very detailed, informative, and taught me alot about the home that I did not know as a first time home buyer. He did a very thorough inspection and even gave me tips on thins to look out for in the future for the house. I felt very much at ease after dealing with this inspector and I would recommend this inspector to anyone buying a house, especially a first time home buyer who does not know much about the structural components of a house. His detail and instruction really made me feel comfortable and knowledgeable about purchasing and reasoning in my new residence. Bring something to take notes because this guy is an information highway! He has my 100% recommendation to be used again and by other. Also in comparison to other inspection companies, the price is great!
- M.J., September 2012
