Ken Rentz

About Us:

VIP Inspection Services Inc is dedicated to providing clients with a reasonable priced, thorough inspection.  We will explain what isn't working, what will need maintenance every year and what needs to be monitored.

For Agents: 

We are an added value company.  We can arrange for the pest, water and septic inspections.  We also perform radon testing.  Ken and Pat are licensed real estate brokers.  Because we are members of the TMLS, we have access to the lockbox codes.  We can usually schedule all inspections and tests for the same time as the home inspection.  Ken can meet the client and perform the inspections without you needing to be present.  Pat does the well testing, radon testing and septic inspections.  We outsource the termite inspection.  This allows you to do what you do best - sell houses.

About Ken:

Ken has been in the construction business since he was a young man.  He has demolished burned out homes, built homes, remodeled homes and built additions.  His knowledge is extensive.  He loves to teach, so when he is ready to answer questions at the designated breaks in the inspection, fire away.  He'll explain anything you need to know about the house you are buying.

Ken is absolutely amazing at what he does. He takes his time to thoroughly inspect the homes. Then he goes through the report elaborating on anything that he finds. To top it off, he's just a very nice and pleasant professional. I really look forward to our next home inspection!! Thanks so much Ken:)

Ken was extremely thorough, took his time, and payed attention to every small detail. He showed us the very few things that he found that needed to be addressed, and made sure that we understood every part of the inspection. I can say with full confidence that I am more than happy with the inspection, and have no doubts that we are purchasing a great home! To note - we asked for Ken on a recommendation of my sister who had the exact same things to say. I would suggest using Ken Rentz to anyone who needs a detailed inspection done by a top rate inspector!
- A.W., May 2020
I've had many home inspections, but never one that was this thorough and helpful! I am super impressed by the quality of work and details that will assist me in making an informed decision on buying this home. Ken, as well as each of the individuals on his team, was knowledgeable, helpful and informative throughout the process. I appreciate it so much!
- K.F., June 2019
Ken is a very detailed and thorough inspector. This is the second time I have used him, and would highly recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection.

Very friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

- V.H., May 2018
Ken and Brian where both prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. Their pleasant demeanor was appreciated and made asking questions easy. The presentation at the end of the inspection was well executed and enhanced the final reports that were created later. After the Home Inspection was finished, Ken stayed for the Pest Inspection that had been delayed and acted as a liaison which shows a dedication to quality service.
- W.W., November 2017
Very professional and detailed inspection, good work. It'd be better if could take a more closer look over the roof.
- Y.S., August 2017
Thank you for your kind attention to my Buyers. Your inspections are done in a manner that inform but do not scare the clients. It is detailed enough for them to ask for important repairs, but also they can refer back to it at a later time to do additional repairs or upgrades. Love that you do it all.
- C.T., August 2017
Thanks great job
- J.R., July 2017
Ken does a very thorough job and was ready and willing to answer any questions I had; it's evident he really wants to do right by his customers. We hired Ken to do our 11-month warranty inspection because he had done such a great job on our pre-closing inspection, so we knew we were getting quality. His reports are complete and understandable. Thanks Ken!
- J.H., June 2017
The inspector was very thorough and took time to answer all of our questions. Will recommend this service to our family and friends.
- G.H., May 2017
Tyler Williamson is a fabulous inspector. He found multiple problems in our new home construction that would have gone well past the settlement date before resolution. He is highly professional, and a great guy; a real joy to work with. I would not hesitate to use VIP inspection services again, and will refer them at every opportunity.
- J.Y., May 2017
Mr. Rentz and his team are very experienced and work on every detail of the inspection. Besides his wonderful work you also can expect lots of education and suggestions about the property which he inspected. Highly recommend.
- Y.S., March 2017
Great presentation of material and answered all questions clearly and in detail.
- B.M., October 2016
Great guy, really professional and informative.
- A.S., July 2016
Very knowledgeable and thorough, but not persnickety or fussy. Very personable, and gave some much-appreciated advice on the home itself and how to get the most out of it. Very grateful to have had Ken's expert eye on things!
- J.H., June 2016
Ken did a great job. He and his partner were very personable, knowledgable, and thorough. He explained things in an easy to understand manor while teaching us a bit about everything as we went along.
- B.P., March 2016

Great job Tyler
- C.W., February 2016
My husband and I would like to thank you, Ken. You were very approachable and answered all our questions. You were very thorough in your reports and we really appreciate it.
- D.J., February 2016
Ken was very professional and explains the home inspection findings very well. I would recommend Ken.
- N.B., January 2016
I debated whether to have an inspection because I thought I gave the townhouse a pretty good inspection inspection and I have some construction experience. Ken did a very thorough inspection and found 11 things I missed. Many of them minor but when you add them and total them if I had to have someone to fix would have cost me $2,000. Negotiated that $2,000 off of my purchase price. Ken efficiently went through his findings at the END of his inspection. This saved me 2 1/2 hours of time at a very busy time at work. WELL WORTH the COST.
- , November 2015
Detail oriented, professional and ethical. Ken took his time looking at every detail in the home I was purchasing. He explained step of the inspection (before, during and after the process), took detailed notes of his findings, and was engaging. He made sure that I understood the scope of his work and answered all of my questions. The thoroughness of his inspection and the completeness of his report were crucial in helping me make the decision to purchase my home.
- M.S., October 2015
As usual the best! Thorough, professional and friendly.

Your inspection was extremely thorough, professional and we certainly learned a great deal about the home we are purchasing. We truly appreciated how you addressed us, as the customers, when explaining the home's defects even though the sellers and their real estate agent were also present. Thank you very much!
- M.C., July 2015
Extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and professional. Could not expect better service.
- D.B., June 2015
Ken is extremely thorough, detailed, and able to present a purely unbiased inspection report. He has provided one of the best inspection reports I have ever seen. For any future house, I would insist on using him as my home inspector. Additionally, he is courteous, respectful, and seems to be just a really good guy.
- J.C., April 2015
Today at 8:28 AM I was very pleased with my home inspection performed by VIP. Ken was professional, knowledgeable, and personable. Although I am purchasing a new home I still wanted independent assurance that there were no concerns with the construction or systems. Ken and his team were very thorough and efficient. Before leaving, Ken personally reviewed the full inspection with me on his computer and physically showed me all items contained in the report. Going above and beyond, he also showed me how some items in the home worked and provided some tips for safety and utility cost savings as well. I received the full electronic report two hours after the inspection was completed. I can see why VIP was recommended by my realtor and I am very happy with every aspect of the experience. Thank you!
- V.S., March 2015
Ken Rentz was very professional he broke ever thing down so we could understand things. I would highly recommend him to someone else.
- D.F., February 2015
Extremely thorough and professional. He gave us a detailed, face to face, report on his findings using easy to understand terms and description. Wish we would have coordinated with Ken for our current home's inspection. We will definitely call on Ken again in the future as needed.

Ken is a very responsible and polite inspector. His report covers a lot of problem. It is very helpful to us.

This was as extensive and detailed a report as I have seen in residential real estate. I worked in commercial real estate for over four decades and would consider the report and follow up by the inspector as exceptional.

Hi Ken, You were spot on with your inspection. As it turns out there was a roof repair done a few years back that was not disclosed. You caught the little evidence of it! My husband and I learned a lot from you and appreciate that you took the time to educate us. Your attention to the little details separates you from the average inspector. Thank you for a great experience. Diane and Tom Brown
