Very professional and thorough
- J.S., Troutman NC, March 2017
I thought he was very knowledgeable and thorough. Also did a good job of explaining what exactly he was checking.
- E.W., March 2017
It was so nice to meet Kent! I had asked if he could stay and wait for my husband to get to the house after leaving work so that he could go over his findings with him, and even though he had completed the inspection, he stayed at the house talking to me while we waited! He was very thorough and knowledgable and we were comfortable relying on his report. I will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a home inspector! Thank you again!
- A.P., February 2017
Hello Kent, I was very pleased with both your inspection and your explanations to me outlining the issues and "non issues". It will give me a very good starting point on things that need to be addressed immediately versus those that can wait/cosmetic. I thank you for your time taken to help us through this process and being prompt, friendly and your willingness to ensure we had a great understanding of your findings. You are awesome and I'd recommend you anytime! Jill
- C.B., January 2017

Kent was awesome through the whole process (so was Sherry). Kent provided timely responses to all requests (phone, e-mail). He arrived onsite ahead of schedule and his inspection was very thorough (never appeared rushed. Always very methodical). Kent was available and willing to answer any questions before/during/after the inspection and provided a detailed professional report within hours of completing the inspection. Highly recommended.
- R.E., December 2016
Kent is very thorough and does a very good job of "finding" everything that needs attention when doing an inspection. He is also friendly and patient, taking his time to go over his report with the buyer. I would highly recommend him for an inspection! =)

- D.G., October 2016
I picked Kent randomly from a list I was given. The list contained highly recommended inspectors, and I simply chose one. With my little experience in looking for homes, Kent did such an amazing job of finding issues I know that I would have never noticed until I moved in or maybe even later down the road. Detailed explanations and the concern for safety and prevention of damage was exceptional and well thought through. I would gladly recommend this guy to any new or experienced home owner in the future.
- D.S., September 2016
Would recommend Kent to anyone who wanted a job well done!

I was familiar with Kent's work from previous projects so there was no question that I wanted to use him for my home inspections. I've used him for 2 home inspections and he is outstanding. He is very detailed in his inspections and is clear about what he finds and what the remedies are. I trust his knowledge and expertise completely. He doesn't miss anything!
- S.S., August 2016
Kent was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was thorough in explaining things and did an excellent job writing the report and taking clear pictures of things that needed fixed.
