Michael was very professional and took the time to explain every step of the process and what he was doing during the inspection. I was very comfortable working with him. He is a great asset to your team! I will be calling him when it is time for me to have my condo inspected prior to selling it!

What we really enjoyed about Mick's work is that he spent a lot of personal time with both my wife and I to explain what he saw with the townhouse inspection. He made it very easy and clear to understand. Very professional. Will certainly recommend Mick to anyone who is looking for a home inspector. Keep up the good work Mick!! Craig & Eileen - Streamwood

Absolutely happy with our experience - as a first time home buyer, we didn't know much about the process and Michael was very helpful.

He answered all of our questions and went beyond our expectations. The report was provided to us very quickly and the website is very easy to use. Getting the request form/report was very useful. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family.
