I would absolutely recommend Mick to anyone who needs a home inspection. I was extremely impressed with how thorough he was in doing our inspection. He took the time to explain any issues and did a great job of answering all of my questions. Buying a home can be stressful, and it is great to have the assurance of a knowledgeable inspector who obviously cares a lot about making sure that your future home is safe.

Michael Meyer and associates gave us an appointment for our inspection right away. We received the final report right away too. Thank you MM and Associates! When I arrived to the house, Mick was already there early walking the the outside of the house with his binoculars. Impressive! We walked with, and watched Mick as he inspected our new home and was amazed at his thorough detail. He answered all of our concerns and educated us about the damages. He found damage we would have never noticed! We are incredibly thankful.
- L.T., May 2016
Mick did an excellent job of identifying the problems with this house. He has provided us with the information necessary to make a justifiable counter and may have saved us thousands of dollars in repairs. Thank you. We will definitely hire you again.

Mic and his dad did an outstanding job of inspecting my present home in 1995! Mic did an equally great job on 9/16/15 on a house I am buying now. I have recommended him to dozens of people over the last 25 or more years. Geep up the great work Mic and Al. Brent Bauer,
- B.B., September 2015
We were so impressed with how thorough Mic's inspection was. He looked at things we never would have thought of and the results of his report were very helpful to us. The resulting report, complete with photos, was very professional and very easy to understand. His photos helped us understand what otherwise might have just been "words" to us. After finishing the inspection he walked us through the areas that might be of concern. His polite, pleasant personality made the inspection even better. Doing a great job these days is usually all we ask, but to have a person be considerate, pleasant and knowledgeable makes it first class.
- B.D., September 2015
Perfect personality for making the buyer feel comfortable. Very detailed, knowledgable. Mike showed concern that everything he inspected was put back in place. Mike found things I never thought to look at. Great inspector.

Nick performed our inspection. He was very courteous and easy to talk too. Did a thorough inspection of the entire home, and pointed out areas of concern and possible remedies to those problems. I would definitely recommend Michael Meyer and Nick to friends and family.
- K.W., Elgin IL, June 2015
You were calm and willing to slow down enough to answer my questions and that was comforting for a single woman. I appreciate that even though you were finished when my son arrived you took the time to review things with him. The completeness of your report enables me to understand what another inspector might be looking for when they come to inspect the home I am selling. I am addressing those areas to better present the home for sale. I feel it gives me an "edge" on selling.
- C.F., May 2015
Friendly, thorough, very knowledgeable.
- T.K., Dundee IL, May 2015
Very thorough, answered all questions asked throughout the inspection, and explained everything he was doing. Hoghly recommend

Michael Meyer is a wonderful ambassador for your company. He was expedient,courteous, helpful and extremely gracious. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael Meyer to anyone requiring his services. Sincerely Carol Gauger
- C.G., May 2015
Thanks Mike for such a thorough inspection. As an architect I had used many inspectors for houses that I did additions to and renovations and in 35 years I never had such a more pleasant young man who was very professional, uncovered things I didn't see and presented us with a complete report. It was well worth the fees. Thanks again
- C.M., May 2015
Mic was recommended to me through my realtor. I couldn't have done a better job finding one on my own. He was very easy to work with and did an excellent job on the inspection report. He was professional and got our report back in less than 24 hours.
- A.M., May 2015
I knew the inspection was thorough and the recommendations thoughtful and helpful. However, when our realtor and then our attorney saw the final full report, both said basically the same thing: "this is easily the best HI report I've ever worked with." Thanks so much for your help in making our home purchasing experience easier.
- B.M., May 2015
Mic was not only very down to earth, but he was extremely knowledgeable in his field. He was patient in answering all our questions and was very thorough in his inspection. When it was all said and done, we left feeling confident that no stones were left unturned. We would definitely recommend Mic for all future homebuyers.
- B.B., April 2015
Mike is knowledgeable, professional and courteous. We appreciated the time he respect he gave us as he thoroughly inspected our potential home purchase. We used him two years ago, and based on that experience, we didn't hesitate to contact him again. Thanks Mike!
- K.A., Sleepy Hollow IL, April 2015
Thanks for being thorough and taking detailed pictures. In this particular case, we were looking for a good inspection that would help us understand our risk and investment challenges. Your inspection was the missing link to our analysis. Also, thank you for taking time to walk us through your findings and engaging with us during the inspection. Very helpful. All the best and I'm sure we'll talk again soon, since we ended up not buying this place.
- D.M., March 2015
Mick does a very thorough and professional job. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection.

Extremely thorough. Best experience with a home inspector to date. I would highly recommend him, and will not use another home inspector again.
- D.B., Palatine IL, July 2014
Thank you so much for your thorough inspection. Your suggestions have already been extremely helpful. Peter Schopen was here yesterday and treated the house, inside and out, for carpenter ants (which he showed to me) and spiders. Also, Prate Installations has been here and I am awaiting scheduling to have some outside roof work and inside attic vent installation and repair. Other issues will be on hold 'til probate is completed. I have forwarded your report to Cherie. Thank you again. Regards, Bev Nelson (P.S. Love this software. Very user friendly.)

Mike, Thank you, for doing such a thorough job inspecting my potential new home. Your experience and knowledge really show when you are doing your job. That's such a comfort to someone that isn't understanding of the construction industry. I was lucky to have had you recommended to me, and will certainly be quick to recommend you in the future to anyone buying a property! The nicest part of working with you is that you took time to explain things in terms that I understood. Thank you, again!
