Using Navigator Home Inspection was the best decision we made when buying a house. Jon does a fantastic, thorough job and the best part is how easy and comprehensive the report summary is to use and refer too. We had a great time reviewing the report in person with Jon which he does with patience and expertise. We really can't say enough good things! He also gave us tips and recommendations on who to contact concerning some of the points in the report, which all also turned into good experiences as well. Getting a home inspection is essential and we certainly recommend Jon Kline with enthusiasm. - Holly and Steven

Hi Jon, Great work on the Ashmun property. Appreciated the common sense approach for a house of this age and condition. I've had inspectors in the past overreact to nearly every deficiency. It was a relief to have an inspection that highlighted the serious issues with side notations on minor stuff. Take care, Jared and Annette
