I have used Mr. Schaefer three times. I will NEVER use anyone else. He is extremely professional and more thorough then anyone else who I have used in the past. His many years of experience is evidence on his extremely detailed reports. You have saved my family and I many many headaches during the entire process of purchasing houses. Thank you very much Mr. James Schaefer, I look forward to your exemplary service in the very near future.

Jamie was punctual and seemed very thorough. He answered all of our questions and wrote a really comprehensive report. Thanks so much for all of your help!
- S.B., August 2016
If you are in need of a home inspection look no further than Jamie Schaefer. His professionalism and thoroughness are beyond reproach. I recently had a home inspection completed by Jamie and was amazed by the results. Jamie was extremely thorough yet quick in conducting his inspection which lasted about an hour. I received his detailed report within a few hours of the inspection. And when I say detailed, I really mean it. The report contained dozens of photos with each one having a detailed description of what you were looking at and even some ways to remedy a problem if one was seen. Some of the photos even contained arrows which pointed directly to a problem area. Thanks to Jamie we are now able to prioritize and determine which areas of the home will require our immediate attention and which can be done down the road. If you are considering buying a home I would very highly recommend him.
- J.P., July 2016
Jamie is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. He was able to accommodate our request on short notice (2 days), showed up right on time and did not rush us at all. He spent time answering all of our questions and provided an extremely comprehensive 100-page report with photos and documentation. I highly recommend him!
- J.C., July 2016
Thank you. You were on time, You answered all my questions during the inspection. Your report was easy to follow and understand.
- L.R., March 2016
If you took the first time home buyer's class you'll know a Home Inspector is a must, but who to choose is the big question. I am recommending Mr. James Schaefer to be your first choice because of my experience with him. He was very informative during the inspection and has valuable knowledge. He also answered all questions and address my concerns promptly. After his Home Inspection I was in a better position to negotiate confidently for a reduced price because of hidden issues. I also received a free one (1) year termite service contract. After the job was done he would still answer his phone to give advice. I can continue to give you more reasons why to choose Mr. James Schaefer as your Home Inspector but at the ending I will highly recommend him to anyone.

I was a pleasure meeting you and having you perform the home inspection of our potential home. You made the process seamless and gave detailed explanation of all my questions. I am grateful to you for such good service. Thank you, Francois Assad

Jamie, Thank you so much for the professionalism and knowledge. I really appreciate your expertise, and I'll definitely recommend you to anyone that asks.
- M.B., July 2015
I have worked in the real estate market for 9+ years and have never witnessed a more careful and thorough inspection than what Jamie does. His knowledge is second to none.
- D.J., July 2015
Thanks for your thorough and revealing report. The photographs and comments really go a long way in forming an understanding of the true condition of this property. I appreciate your efforts to help us make wise decisions as we move forward toward purchasing this home. Regards, Vic Lana
- V.L., May 2015
Very insightful and professional.
- S.Z., April 2015
We wouldn't buy a home without a home inspection, and we wouldn't use any other home inspector but Jamie Schaefer. Jamie is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. He pointed out and explained the obvious things and things I never would have even known to look for. In addition to the time he took to explain everything to us, the report he sent was very detailed and easy to understand with pictures and comments. We can now buy our home with confidence thanks to Jamie.
- R.M., April 2015
I am very new to this home buying process and I must say I'm really impress with your work. The report is professionally done, and you paid very special attention to detail. Secondly you were very prompt to the inspection site and my spouse was very much impress with you. You actually deliver; you said report would be ready the same day and it was. I have a few friends who are looking to be e a homeowner as well and I will definitely recommend your services. Thank You K.Lewis
- K.L., March 2015
thank you again Jamie, great job !!
- J.D., March 2015
Jamie Schaefer did a fantastic job inspecting the home we are purchasing. Jamie is very professional and possesses an attention to detail that is comforting when making such a large financial decision. His comprehensive report contains comments and recommendations that are easy to understand. Additionally, his website is simple to navigate and provides a secure log-in to view your report and additional documents related to the inspection process. I highly recommend Jamie Schaefer's services.
- R.L., March 2015
My husband and I were very impressed with the efficient, expedient, thorough and professional service that Mr. Schaefer provided. Receiving a completed home inspection report online the same day was extremely beneficial. I will confidently refer Mr. Schaefer to all of my friends and family in need of a home inspection in the future.
- A.J., March 2015
We selected Jamie to perform the inspection of a home we are buying and could not be happier with the services he provided. First, we wanted the inspection to be scheduled very fast and he gladly made the time to be available the very next day, and he was punctual for the appointment. He is very knowledgeable and conducts the inspection in a very professional and respectful manner. He was able to quickly identify some serious conditions that required immediate attention, and others with the potential to become a problem if not addressed. Even being an engineer, I can honestly say I would not have noticed most of the issues Jamie quickly identified. He also included a termite inspection which added to my peace of mind. As an owner or potential buyer, it is highly recommended that you participate in the inspection since Jamie really takes the time to go through the process with you, explains issues he identifies so you are aware of any potential problems, and he answers any question you may have. For me this was extremely valuable. To my surprise, I received the full inspection report on the evening of the same day he conducted the inspection! Money well spent. I highly recommend Jamie Schaefer for any home inspection.
- A.S., February 2015
Great experience, would highly recommend his service to anyone looking for a home inspection and professional assessment of a house or building. Not only to determine the existing condition of a building, but also to advise on what necessary steps to take to correct any existing or future problems.
- L.B., VALLEY STREAM NY, February 2015
It was absolutely amazing working with James Schaefer. He was recommended by our Realtor. He was easy to talk to; he answered all the questions that we had. He provided the home inspection report within a few hours and he had tons of resources available for us which we will be taking advantage of. With it been winter, parts of the property was covered in snow at the time of the inspection, but he was more than willing to come back at a future time to inspect those areas and provide an amendment to the report. We will definitely use his services again.
- E.O., February 2015
Mr. Schaefer was most professional, honest, and thorough. He was extremely responsive to our request for services, including doing our home inspection on a Sunday. He submitted his report on a very timely basis as well. I would recommend him without hesitation.
- N.M., February 2015

- P.F., December 2014
Mr. Jamie Schaefer was recommended to me by my broker who has been using his services for years. I first called on a Wednesday and Jamie was on site and ready to inspect the house on Friday. Later that evening I received a very detailed report with pictures. No detail, no matter how small was left out. I was very impressed with his background, knowledge of homes and his professionalism. You certainly get what you pay for and more. I would definitely recommend Jamie to my friends and family and look forward to working with him again for future home purchases.
- J.R., December 2014
Mr. Schaefer is very thorough in his inspection, but at the same time he does not make the buyer feel that every problem is crital and can't be corrected. He also takes his time in explaining what has to be corrected and why.

Inspector Schaefer is truly a professional at what he does. He was absolutely cooperative in taking time off from his scheduled day off to aaccommodate me for my house inspection. He arrived on time and did a thorough intricate look at all the areas in and around the house. There were questions that were answered for me, which ordinarily I would not have known.

Jamie was extremely professional from start to finish. Being a first time homeowner I had not idea what to expect during a home inspection. He told we what to expect when we spoke on the phone. The day of the inspection he made sure I was aware of everything he was doing. He answered all of my questions as we went through the house.

The quality of the report in the end was excellent and will serve as an owner's manual for the home.

- P.J., Queens Village NY, August 2013
Thanks Jamie for always being early and taking care of business. I will definitely recommend you to friends and family!
- N.K., Fresh Meadows NY, August 2013
I found the 77 page report thorough, easy to follow, with helpful photos, written standards of the inspection, and stated limitations of the inspection process. Areas where there is clutter were not observed. In my opinion, it would be worthwhile to inform the owner or the broker to remove any clutter that would hinder a clear observation of under-sink plumbing or to remove any blocking of electrical connections, prior to any inspection. As an example, potential plumbing leaks under the sink might not be easily observed because of clutter. The report says, "Re-inspect after clutter is removed." Report does not say by whom. I presume he means the new owner. I would rate the report A-. sid krimsky
- S.K., August 2013
Very thorough and well written report and extremely helpful in considering the purchase of our new house. Very reliable and knowledgeable in all aspects of the home.
