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.

- 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

- 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
