Randy does a great job! He is thorough, patient, and communicates well with agents and clients. He also does a nice job educating buyers about their new home. I recommend Randy without reservation.
- J.R., Charlottesville VA, May 2021
Randy was great! Thorough, knowledgeable, and took the time to review our concerns and explain different bldg systems (e.g. hot water heater, HVAC, architectural features).
- D.A., April 2021
Randy was delightful. Super knowledgeable, professional, respectful, efficient, thorough and overall really helpful in orienting me to what would be my new house. His detailed report with pictures makes it easy to refer back to the items that need attention and especially useful when negotiating with the sellers. Highly recommend.
- P.D., April 2021
Professional, knowledgeable, personable, and easy to work with!

I would absolutely recommend Randy for home inspections. Very professional and knowledgeable in his craft!
- E.E., April 2021
We were not in town while the inspection was done and never met him in person, I feel like we know Randy through the professional and careful job he did. He was available by phone and text for any questions I had and took good care of us.
- R.G., Apex NC, March 2021
I found Mr. Ryning to be knowledgeable, professional, and thorough during the inspection process. He was patient and eager to answer any and all questions I had (which were plenty). I was very impressed by his level of experience. Knowing I am a first-time home owner, he took the time to explain equipment and condition of items to me so that I understood their purpose and how best to handle issues on my own. Mr. Ryning is easy to get along with and enjoyable to work with as well. He put me at ease all through the process. I will highly recommend him to friends in the future who are in need of an expert home inspection. Oliver Creek Home Inspection should be commended for their great communication process prior to and following the home inspection. I received several very prompt emails and easy access to the inspection report.
- R.D., March 2021
Randy is outstanding and I would highly recommend him. He answered all of my questions during the inspection and I had a follow up question that I called him on a Sunday and he picked up the phone right away and answered my question.
- S.C., March 2021
Randy was awesome! I could tell he was very thorough and genuine as he was inspecting the house. I totally trusted everything he said.

- M.H., March 2021
Although Randy was recommended by my agent, I was not expecting such a pro. He was very thorough and extremely thorough. He explained every defect he found and the severity of each one with possible solutions. He also showed me the operations for the furnace, ac, irrigation, air purifier, and other devices. He took his time and showed he really cared about his task. I would certainly recommend him to other home buyers. Nancy Butler
- N.B., March 2021
I would absolutely recommend Randy. He is pleasant, courteous and completely professional. Very thorough. Answers questions honestly.
- A.M., March 2021
Randy has been phenomenal as my home inspector. In fact, I used Randy as my home inspector for back-to-back inspections because his first inspection prevented me from making a six-figure mistake. Randy is extremely thorough, wonderfully professional, and a helpful teacher. He answered every single one of my questions, no matter how basic they were, and he also provided sage advice for whom to ask if the issue was beyond his scope of practice. Thanks to having Randy as my home inspector, I feel more confident going into my purchase as a better informed homeowner.
- L.G., March 2021
My realtor highly recommended that I use Randy for my home inspection due to his previous experience with Randy's work. After my experience with Randy, I will absolutely recommend Randy for anyone looking to receive a quality home inspection. Randy's attention to detail is outstanding. He allowed me to ask questions and addressed concerns during the inspection, and he also documented all issues with photos and details in the report. He even included suggestions for preventative maintenance that will be beneficial for areas that were not necessarily problems at the time of inspection, but may be in the near future. I highly recommend Randy and his expertise in helping anyone with their home inspection. Thank you Randy!
- T.J., March 2021
Randy was great to work with. He was on-time, did a thorough job, did not rush, and took time to explain his findings and also answer my various questions. He was able to provide various recommended corrections to the problems he noted during the inspection. Randy seems to be a practical person with an easy-going but professional demeanor. I would highly recommend his services.
- J.L., February 2021
We appreciate the thoroughness, calm, intentional order of work done in inspecting the house.
- S.G., February 2021
Randy Ryning was highly recommended to us by friends who recently had him inspect the home they were purchasing. We were equally pleased! Randy is thorough, detailed, and very knowledgeable.

- J.P., January 2021
Randy was great to work with! Quick to respond to email and text which made planning an inspection date very simple. He was extremely thorough with his work and took the time to go over everything with me and my client during the inspection. The full inspection report was also delivered the same day which was very detailed and my clients were thrilled about that. Thank you for all the great work Randy and look forward to using you again.

Thorough Job
- M.S., December 2020
I'm so thankful to have had Randy as my home inspector. He was professional and informative. The inspection and report was thorough, detailed and easy to follow. There were aspects of the house that I would never been aware to look for, but Randy did and gave me an excellent picture of what to consider in what to expect to make sure the house was safe and sound. I would absolutely refer him to other friends for house inspections!
- L.A., Charlottesville VA, December 2020
Randy's inspection was thorough and meticulous. He tolerated well our following him around and asking questions. The comments and suggestions contained in his report were concise and very useful in our decision process regarding the home he inspected for us.
- B.M., Rockville MD, December 2020
Randy was a great home inspector! This was my first home purchase so there was a lot I didn't know, but Randy did a great job inspecting the home and patiently explained many features of the house as well as gave us some helpful tips on things to do once we moved in. I would definitely recommend Randy to others!
- E.B., November 2020
Randy was absolutely fantastic during our home inspection process. He was on time (early), knowledgeable, professional, easy to talk to, and an overall pleasure to work with. He went through the step by step with me, educating me on the home, and talking through each item that eventually made its way into the report. Typically, home inspections identify areas needing attention, but Randy also identified items that I could take comfort in, where I could be confident something was built well or a feature added that adds value. During the entire process, I was able to ask questions, which were always answered, and without hesitation. Oliver Creek Home Inspection will definitely be my first call if ever needing a future home inspection. Highly recommend.
- N.S., November 2020

- L.K., November 2020
Everything I could have wished for. A thorough job, a clear report with good descriptions and pictures. Extra pictures just to document "things the new owner might want to know" - like "where on earth is the main water shutoff in this house?". Randy was unhurried and seemed happy to answer all my questions - a pleasure to work with!
- E.D., Charlottesville VA, November 2020
I would highly recommend Randy! He was efficient but thorough and kept me apprised of any concerns throughout the inspection process as they were discovered.
- P.H., October 2020
Through and personable, Randy was pivotal in my home buying process and would recommend him to anyone looking for a inspector.
- N.D., October 2020
Randy was on time, explained the process up front, and provided a thorough evaluation of the home noting several issues we would not have been able to see. His report was timely, thorough and detailed (including pictures to show each area of concern) and provided us with the information we needed to make a determination of whether or not to purchase the home. This shows he truly provides an unbiased, accurate inspection which is all that a potential buyer can ask for. I would highly recommend Randy!!!

- L.M., Charlottesville VA, August 2020
Great Inspection
- B.H., August 2020
Randy was exceptional! He was matter-of-fact yet personable and able to describe complex issues for a novice like me. Additionally, the detail within the report has given me very helpful direction on where to turn as my house ages. I am particularly impressed with the checklist feature. Including pictures of what needs to be dealt with helps a great deal as I wait for closing and visualize what needs attention in my new home.
- M.G., August 2020
Randy spent at least 4-5 hours on the actual inspection and did a very comprehensive job. It was interesting to note the use of a drone to inspect items like the roof and gutters rather than having to resort to using a ladder.
- A.B., August 2020
Very thorough, very professional, and incredibly helpful.
- J.S., August 2020
Randy was terrific-- very communicative and thorough. He took the time to explain things as he went through the house, and also gave us the opportunity to follow him as he went through if we wanted to. Since he updated frequently during the inspection itself, we didn't feel we needed to do that, but we appreciated the chance to do so when particular issues came up. Thanks, Randy!

Randy Ryning did an excellent job. The home inspection was thorough and he explained everything to the buyers in a clear and concise way.

- F.T., June 2020
Incredibly thorough. We are confident our home has been inspected top to bottom and in every corner. This is especially important to us since we are moving from so far away and have had so little time to see the home ourselves. We will absolutely use Randy again if we ever need another home inspection. Thank you!
- M.H., June 2020
Randy did a great job with our home inspection. He was thorough with the inspection itself, and provided a detailed report with a helpful explanation of what repairs should be highest priority and which are more minor in nature. He sent us a copy of the inspection the same day that the inspection was completed! We would definitely recommend Randy and Oliver Creek Home Inspection.
- K.Z., June 2020
Excellent experience with our home inspection as the seller; thorough review of property and very professional. We decided to hire Randy to complete the inspection of the home we plan to purchase. Again, he did not disappoint. Incredibly thorough work and answers questions even after his work is done.
- R.D., June 2020
Randy provided a very thorough report and made sure to point out specific items of concern to me. He is also very quick to get the final report completed so that you as the buyer are not waiting days for your inspection report. That is very appreciated.

His professionalism was palpable from the onset of our interaction. It gave me the confidence to move forward with the home buying process and I would recommend his services to anyone!
- J.L., April 2020
I am a realtor in Charlottesville and this was the first time I had recommended Randy to a client for an inspection. He was thorough and knowledgeable and didn't mind that we asked a lot of questions. As this was an older house, he clearly set expectations up front that it was inevitable that some issues would arise. When he presented those issues in his report, they were detailed in a way that was educational vs. alarming. I would definitely recommend Randy and I look forward to working with him again in the future!!!
- S.N., April 2020
Randy is extremely thorough, professional, and excellent at communicating with clients. I would highly recommend him to any of my clients and colleagues. Very impressive!

- C.C., March 2020
I was extremely impressed with Randy throughout the whole inspection process! He was thorough with his preparations beforehand including my specific requests. I unfortunately was unable to be present on the day of the inspection due to a work conflict, but he spent several hours checking the whole property out for me. The most impressive part was the extremely detailed electronic report I received less than 24 hours after the inspection that included super helpful pictures and a breakdown of the functionality/quality of all aspects of the home. I will 100% recommend Randy to anyone looking for a fantastic inspector who clearly takes pride in his work!
- S.P., March 2020
Randy was very pleasant over the phone and very thorough in his report.
- H.R., February 2020
Randy is the most thorough inspector I have ever engaged. I have purchased 15 homes during my lifetime and hired inspectors for each one. Randy's report was very detailed and to the point. Best of all, the presentation was clear, precise and easily understood. I would definitely engage Randy again if the need arises.
- S.T., February 2020
Randy was a life saver. We were in a bind and needed an inspector at the last minute due to a medical emergency with our previously scheduled appointment. Randy made himself available to do our inspection within 3 hours of us contacting him. This was especially appreciated as we had to travel over 2 hours to reach the property. He did a very detailed inspection, answered all our questions and submitted a report that laid out everything in a very clear manner. We would highly recommend Randy and we were very pleased with his work.
- J.P., January 2020
Randy just did a recent home inspection for my buyers. He was available on short notice when they called him. Randy showed up on time, did a thorough inspection and was very good explaining everything to me and my buyers. I would highly recommend him.
- V.W., Palmyra VA, January 2020
I was extremely skeptical to the home inspection process and wondering if it was truly worth it, but Randy made destroyed my skepticism. An extremely thorough walk through that helped me understand exactly what I was looking to buy with my home. A few hundred up front has helped prevent thousands within the year and I could not have been happier with his knowledge set, professionalism and honesty. would highly recommend using Randy as I will be sure to recruit him for all of my future purchases.
- B.S., December 2019
Randy is the best! Thorough and professional yet friendly and personable. I would use him again every time!

I would recommend Randy to inspect any other properties I should purchase in the future. He is a very nice young gentleman and I feel like he was honest and thorough while he was inspecting the home. He answered questions as I walked along with him during some of the inspection. He also did a Radon Test for the home and I recommend that anyone purchasing a home to do this test regardless of what kind of home you are purchasing. Randy had the reports to my email address almost in less than a day. Very fast and accurate! I highly recommend him to inspect your home too! 10-30-2019
- L.M., October 2019
The online tool for making a request list is great. It makes a nice report, and is easy to convey what we want to the other side. I was a bit worried about the report during the home inspection, as you seemed very casual and took a lot of time to answer our questions. But it turns out you were taking good notes on your phone (you warned me you were), and we were very pleased with the thoroughness and completeness of the report. Would have liked to receive the home inspection agreement and cost breakdown before the home inspection started. It would have helped clear my expectations knowing payment was due in full the day of the inspection.
- W.E., October 2019
Randy was a very nice gentlemen that answered my questions as we went along with the inspection my questions as he did the inspection. He appeared thorough throughout the inspection. I appreciate the detailed pictures and data. This can be used for the repairs and better understood for the repairmen. It was a pleasure to meet Randy and I would highly recommend him to inspect your home.
- L.M., October 2019
Randy--Thanks so much for taking the time to inspect our house and for the thorough job you did. We appreciated greatly the way you explained things for us that need attention. I felt like you were inspecting this house as if it were one you were going to purchase yourself. Great job!
- R.B., October 2019
Randy was very knowledgeable and professional. He took the time to explain several items he would later note in his report, this made for better understanding the report. I found him not to be bias towards either the home owner or home buyer. Also I got the radon test, which he did not push one way or the other, he provider us with the information we needed to decide to have the test or not. I definitely would recommend Randy.
- V.D., October 2019
Randy did a very thorough pre-listing inspection and happily answered our many questions. His report was well written and illustrated and goes into detail--it's been super helpful. Thanks!
