Ken did a very thorough job, spending a good amount of time after the inspection to make sure that I understood all aspects of the inspection. I would highly recccommend Ken, because if he can do such a good job on a house as unique as this one, there is nothing he wouldn?t be able to handle!
- M.B., La Crescenta CA, November 2017
Ken is AMAZING! He is an extremely professional, intelligent, informative and personable (see hilarious) person. We couldn't be happier. He was very thorough, answered all of our questions, explained the summary of his inspection in a way that we could easily understand, walked the entire property with us and showed us exactly what ought be addressed. We didn't feel rushed or underserved. Give that man a raise! Thanks, Ken and The Real Estate Inspection Company. It's no wonder you have as many wonderful reviews as you all do. If you're reading this, HIRE THEM...yesterday!! - A.O.Reed

Extremely knowledgeable, and great communicator to break it down in simple terms to both the Realtor and Buyer!!!
- J.L., Encinitas CA, August 2017
I liked Ken efficiency and proficiency. He is highly knowledgeable in his profession. He covered almost everything in detail, the area we even didn't think about ourselves. Provided detailed report of all what is working and what is not working and what requires Repairs or Replacement with picture pointing to the fault. Overall, I highly recommend him for your home inspection. Also, I definitely will ask Ken service for all my future home inspections. Thanks Ken for detail report, much appreciate it.

Ken is a very personable fellow. He was thorough in his work and very helpful in his explanation of inspection findings. His jokes aren't the greatest (okay- they were really from Amazon's Alexa) but his stories are good! We would highly recommend Ken to anyone wanting a professional inspection on their home.

- S.W., Ramona CA, June 2016
Ken gave a great and thorough inspection. The report itself was very detailed and we learned a lot of information about a home that we greatly value. The home care videos are a wonderful touch in the report and the supporting images are great! We loved that Ken used recent technology for the thermal imagery. We enjoyed his detailed findings and friendliness which made us comfortable being there at the inspection with him. He was more than punctual at our meeting since he was already getting started before we got there (And we were 5 minutes early to boot!). Thank you for your knowledge, detail, humor, and time efficiency!

If there was a rating higher than 10, we'd give it to Ken Heller. He was a pleasure to work with, and did an examplary job inspecting our prospective home. He is thorough, educated, and highly informed in the home inspection business. We feel highly confident in the inspection and report done by Ken. Should we, or anyone else we know, need a home inspection, Ken will be the first person we recommend. He made us feel comfortable asking questions, and eased some of the stresses that surround the home buying process. Thank you Ken Heller!
- R.A., January 2016
This was the most thorough inspection I have seen. Thanks , Ken Mary scully
- M.S., November 2015
Ken was thorough and patient. He answered our many questions during the inspection and walked us through each section of the report when he was done. His findings were invaluable to us and I would not hesitate to recommend him and The Real Estate Inspection Co.
- L.M., November 2015
If I were a Realtor, Ken Heller would be my "go-to" guy for sure!!! Ken has completed 3 home inspections for properties I intended to buy (this third one is, hopefully, a charm). So, I feel like I've gotten to know Ken a bit. Love his friendly style and professionalism. I totally trust the information supplied in the "sit down" review and his reports, and will use all of the information as a basis for tackling "fix it" tasks. I miss Pipsqueek.
- L.E., Ramona CA, November 2015
Ken is always professional and thorough in his inspections. Very personable and takes time to explain if the client should have any questions.
- D.S., Ramona CA, November 2015
Ken was great. He explained what we wanted to know about and didn't explain the parts we didn't want to go through that day. He was fun and professional. When we called him a few days later to follow up on a question, he recognized us and gave a thoughtful, thorough answer.
- D.C., November 2015
Great service and professionalism!
- H.B., October 2015
Wonderful service, very professional, explained things clearly, and took the time to answer all of my questions. Highly satisfied and would definitely recommend!

- D.Z., October 2015
Ken was great! Very thorough and detailed. Also very helpful with my clients, answering any questions they had, and explaining things in a way that was easy to understand.

- C.P., October 2015
Ken is very professional and did a fantastic inspection of the home.
- K.N., October 2015
Ken, One of the most informative inspections I've worked with. Thank you for doing such a thorough job and documentation. Will always recommend you guys.
- D.P., October 2015
Very professional and thorough. I enjoyed watching Ken inspect the home and learned a lot things about the house and now feel more comfortable moving in. The list of recommendations is great and gives me some things to improve upon once i move in. Thanks Ken.
- S.K., October 2015
Ken is very personable and engaging individual; he was diligent and very professional in conducting his inspection, and would occassionally explain what he was searching for or point out key observations that he felt needed to be emphasized. He was very good at explaining his findings while running through his final report and even provided details when requested. Overall, I was extremely pleased with the inspection and Ken and would highly recommend him to others. In addition, he had a very good professional relationship with my RE agent, which made me even more comfortable.
- G.F., September 2015
Thank you Ken. I was extremely impressed with the professional and thorough inspection you performed on my house purchase. In reviewing the report with my friends, they were also impressed, especially with the photos and explanations. Here is why: 1. The systematic and complete process you follow to investigate the house - I feel confident if it could be found you found it! 2. The pictures and explanations to show what is booth good and bad. It is strange that most people spend more time looking at and checking out their new car than their new home. So the inclusion of various appliances, plumbing, etc. was a really useful part of the report. 3. Ken is a great guy, easy to talk to and explains both what he is doing and why he is doing it during the inspection. That was both educational and re-assuring. 4. The items highlighted with problems also included recommendations for correction, including simple D.I.Y. options for items not requiring professional services. 5. The price was reasonable. If you are going to buy something that takes 30yrs to pay off, why would you go cheap on the inspection that may save you years of financial and emotional heartache. Overall I am delighted with Ken's work and the HomeGauge report. Highly recommended and I would definitely use their services again.
- C.R., September 2015
ken did a great job. the report is in details and concise. Thanks!
- b.y., September 2015
It was really great having you inspect what I hope is our future home. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to my concerns and to let me tag along throughout the entire inspection. I feel like I learned a lot about the home, and I learned a lot about what things I should keep an eye on in the future. Regards, Melody
- M.B., September 2015
Ken. Excellent work. Very thorough inspection. You have a keen and experienced eye. Thank you for investing the time to share the nuances of the property with us.

Pleasure meeting you, and loved how in depth you had gotten, as well as advice. Thank you Ken. Salute.
- N.D., July 2015
The inspection was very comprehensive. I appreciate the electrical portion, specifically, because I wouldn't know what to look for electrically. I wish you guys had a boroscope to do an internal plumbing inspection as well. (Maybe something to look into for the future?) The only thing I didn't see written up was the second water heater under the spiral staircase.
- D.F., July 2015
We really appreciated your friendly demeanor and informative, thorough inspection! We would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family, or to request you if we ever need inspection services again. Thank you!
- P.O., July 2015
Thank you for your honesty, suggestions and warm personality. It was a pleasure having you viewing our new home and supplying us with honest feedback. ps. My wife loved the "stash".

- b.h., san diego CA, June 2015
Ken was very thorough and examined all aspects of the house. His report was very professional and organized into each functional chracteristic of the house (e.g. appliances, plumbing, electrical). He went through the report with us section by section and explained his findings and recommendations as well as any other information he had collected during the inspection. Ken also walked us through the house to show certain observations he'd made and to further explain some of his findings. Overall, the inspection was well worth it and Ken did an excellent job. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone who may need a property inspection. Well done.

Ken was absolutely wonderful! He was very thorough even down to the smallest detail. There were photos, infrared thermal checks, and even videos! He didn't miss a spot! His report was detailed and I loved the suggestions and recommended do it yourself fixes. I will definitely recommend Ken's services ten fold. After the inspection he went through every item point by point. He was professional, astute, and a pleasure to work with. Thank you Ken! Your knowledge, professionalism, and skill set was impressive. I will be sure to recommend Ken to anyone that needs a home inspection. Even my realtor- who himself is very thorough, commented that he was one of the best inspectors he had has seen and that is saying a lot!

Our experience with Ken and his team was excellent. VERY thorough inspection that painted a very clear picture of what we needed to address.

We got lucky with scheduling due to a last minute cancellation; Ken was punctual, friendly, helpful and answered every single question we had. Highly recommend to anyone seeking a thorough home inspection and will definitely use again in the future. Thank you!!
