As a licensed realtor I have had many years of inspections. Let us just say that some inspectors are very poor,lazy or inept in their reports. John Jacobs was tasked with inspecting an unusual property. He was professional and very thorough in both his oral and written report. 133 pages. Yes I would recommend him.

I have been a Realtor in Missoula for 13 years and I recommend John to all of my clients, as well at to other Realtors. His work is thorough and his reports are second to none. John is very knowledgeable, and he is easily able to explain technical aspects of a home inspection to clients in laymen's terms that they can understand. If given a choice, I will never use a Home Inspector other than John for the transactions that I help my real estate clients with. He is an integral part of the high quality services I strive to provide for my clients, and is always my first choice when I need a home inspector.

- L.W., September 2017
John Jacobs is my go-to inspector. He is thorough, informative, and professional. His complete report is always done timely and includes everything you can think of that needs attention. In addition to that, he always includes tip for buyers on how to maintain the home. He goes above and beyond and as a Realtor® I need to trust that my referral won't ever cost me a client.

- L.W., November 2016
John is always thorough and considerate. I appreciate that he is available to answer questions for clients (and me) as needed. The whole process can be so overwhelming to buyers, and being able to communicate concerns and ask questions makes a huge difference for them. I have full confidence in John and his common sense and knowledge. Thank you John!
- j.g., Missoula MT, October 2016
John is very knowledgeable and thorough. He is friendly with buyers and open to answering their questions. He is always a pleasure to work with! One thing to improve on would be that if you are going to include videos in your report, it would be helpful to also include a still photo because when we agents download the report and send it to the seller as proof of things wrong, the video is lost in translation and not available for the seller to see. Food for thought!
- J.A., August 2016
Extremely knowledgeable and thorough. Took time to answer any questions about the house. Highly recommended
- J.H., July 2016
Great job John!
- R.J., June 2016
John was very thorough and professional and my clients really appreciated his service!
- S.H., April 2016
John, Thanks for doing such great work and providing photos, etc.!
- B.D., April 2016
John is at the top of my list of inspectors I use. Even though distance is sometimes a factor, I highly recommend John as his report is thorough and delivered to the client in such a way that the practical aspect of his findings is easy to understand, digest, and "gauge". As the buyer agent, and as the seller agent, I so appreciate takes the reinterpretation out of the equation and makes it much easier to discuss the findings intelligibly with the client. Minimizing room for error and misunderstanding.
- W.M., Polson MT, February 2016
Thank you, John! You were kind, prompt, and created an immaculate report. My clients and I really appreciate your professionalism and I will definitely recommend you in the future! Really appreciate your hard work.
- N.C., February 2016
Danny and I are so impressed with your thorough and fast report. I think you looked at ever crack and corner. I am very pleased how you explained the construction in simple terms that anyone understand. The pictures you took are worth a million. I think you really enjoy your job because you go way above and beyond to help out your customers. Thank you very much in helping us realize our new home.
- M.D., September 2015
This will be the fourth home I've purchased in my 53 years and I've never experienced such a complete inspection. Not only did he address the problem areas but he also listed thorough instructions on how to rectify the situation and/or how often to do the maintenance needed. I am extremely happy I decided to use him as an inspector and would recommend him to anyone considering a home purchase.
- M.K., September 2015
Love the fact that you totally understand construction and have such an easy way of relating the information you find with the clients, keeping them calm and involved.

Such and awesome inspection! John J. obviously put a lot of time and energy into his end written product and we walked away with a document that will serve us for years to come. This is the most thorough inspection I have seen. Would do business with him again in a heartbeat. Thanks. Mike
- M.B., November 2014
Very pleased with John's product and presentation. Confident that ,as a buyer, we received good professional service and advice.
- B.A., August 2014
John inspected a house I was selling (hired by the buyer). I was so impressed with the job he did on that house that I hired him to inspect the house I was buying. He was very easy to work with and had very quick, efficient turnaround time on the report. It was emailed to me the morning after his inspection. It seems he has a good background in proper construction techniques and can accurately identify problems with houses, including water/waste systems, electrical, frame, roofing, insulation, and appliances to name a few. He seems especially detail oriented which is a very good quality to have for a home inspector. The report we received was very professional and detailed, with many excellent pictures (probably 40 or more) showing his findings. The other useful part of his inspection was that he briefly discussed possible remedial measures to take regarding issues with the house. Last, I liked that the report included reminders of annual maintenance to perform after we move in.
- J.F., February 2014
I am very impressed, Pictures, explanation were great! I would recomend John to everyone. Good, Thorough work
- M.W., November 2013
