Phil was a pleasure to work with and did an excellent job
- E.V., July 2020
I could not thank Phil enough for his detail-orientation, depth of knowledge, and accessibility during the inspection. I would highly recommend him and will think of him first if home inspection services are needed again!
- P.D., June 2020
Great job! I really have no suggestions, which is rare given that I tend to have very high standards.
- J.T., Chicago IL, June 2020
We could not have been happier with Phil! He has a wealth of knowledge and was extremely patient with us and all the questions we had. He took his time during the inspection and was extremely thorough. He communicated promptly and was very easy to work with. We would recommend him to anyone who asks and will absolutely keep his information for all the questions I'm sure we'll have as first time home buyers.
- J.A., May 2020
Phil did an excellent job showing us how to maintain our new home. As new homebuyers, we had a lot of questions, and he was very patient with us and thorough.
- N.L., May 2020
Phil was a pleasure to work with on the inspection. He was very knowledgeable in all areas and thoroughness made me feel comfortable on this part of the home buying experience.
- N.S., February 2020
Phil was super helpful to explain every detail to me that was of major concern. He is also extremely kind and I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know.
- M.S., January 2020
Phil was very thorough and patient. We left the inspection with a clear understanding of the issues in the home and the relative urgency of each. The report was delivered when promised and clearly summarized what we had discussed. I would definitely work with Phil again in the future and recommend him to others.
- R.M., November 2019
Phil was very thorough and friendly. He went above and beyond to try and answer any of the questions that I had about the property or issues. I would 100% use him again on our next inspection.
- N.S., November 2019
Phil is an expert in his field. He is also patient, attentive, efficient and customer-centered. He has been my recommendation for many years. I would recommend him over and over in a heartbeat.
- L.P., October 2019
Phil was very knowledgeable and really did a thorough job of inspecting the unit. I would definitely recommend him .He also gave some great tips about maintenance etc.
- D.G., July 2019
Couldn't ask for someone more thorough or who was better at explaining everything he was doing. Highly recommended!
- R.M., June 2019
The only thing I would change is I?d give 100+ stars if I could. HANDS DOWN: we would not want any one else to do our home inspection. We just met Phil and he did a PHENOMENAL job. His diligence, and I mean literally every single square inch of the property, provided us with an EXTREMELY thorough inspection report. Although the report is long, he makes it very easy to understand an he provides ideas/solutions/pictures. He was/is awesome. (Thanks again, Phil). As first time home owners, he made us feel SO comfortable asking as many questions as we wanted through out his inspection. Ps. He even passed my parent?s approval (keep in mind my mother is Sicilian so she is sassy and has high standards). My husband and father were also very impressed. WE APPRECIATE YOU PHIL!!!! Thanks again.
- D.F., May 2019
Phil was absolutely amazing! It was clear he knew what he was doing and he made sure that we understood everything too, which is just what we needed, as first-time homebuyers. His turnaround time for preparing the report after conducting the inspection was very fast, and the report was incredibly detailed, with everything laid out in a way that made it easy to read and that then made it easy for us to identify what we needed to ask the seller to fix. I would recommend Phil to anyone and everyone who needs a home inspection and wants it done right.
- K.T., April 2019
Phil was incredibly helpful, thorough and detail-oriented throughout the entire inspection. The house has so many nuances and little details, and he took the time to review everything. I feel very confident about the house and the work Phil did. Thanks so much!
- D.S., April 2019
Phil is thorough, communicative, and absolutely a pleasure to work with. As an inspector, he approached our new construction condominium as if it were his own, identifying potential areas of concern and providing useful context on the best elements of the building structure. I would absolutely recommend Phil. He is second to none!
- R.J., February 2019
Phil is a knowledgeable and thorough inspector! As long as we live in Chicago, we?ll seek out his services when needed.

- G.P., January 2019
Phil was very thorough in explaining what and why he looked for certain things during the inspection process so that once I moved into my new home, I was aware of what was there.
- N.R., December 2018
Phil, you were a knowledgeable and kind inspector! Thanks for all your insight. It was a pleasure to meet you.
- K.P., October 2018
Phil Gould is simply the BEST home inspector we've ever worked with. We have purchased eight homes since the 90's, and he is head and shoulders above the rest. He is incredibly thorough and meticulous, uncovering several hidden trouble spots that were material in the plumbing, electrical, and heating system. We recommend him without reservation.
- C.B., October 2018
I was very impressed with Phil' thoroughness and knowledge. The home inspection on our previous house by another inspector took half as long as the inspection done by Phil on the home we are buying that is half as big. Highly recommended.
- C.L., August 2018
We?ve worked with Phil twice now and appreciate his knowledge, thoroughness, and informative approach.
- J.K., July 2018
Phil was absolutely terrific! He is extremely knowledgeable and explained in a detailed manner every step of the Home inspection. I was under the impression I was purchasing a perfect home and Phil was able to find items I would of never bothered to check. Definitely will recommend him to friends and family!
- J.V., May 2018
I would absolutely recommend Phil without reservations. He did a thorough job and explained every step of the inspection to me, allowing me to understand not only the inspection process itself, but everything related to my apartment and its technical aspects as well. I will never thank him enough for making the inspection process run so smoothly even though I was a first time home buyer.
- L.L., May 2018
Phil is one of the most thorough and professional inspectors I've worked with. His approach is very thoughtful and he knows how to separate important issues from the minor ones. His reports are clear and precise. I highly recommend!
- C.M., May 2018

You?re the most professional, detailed, and passionate inspector I?ve worked with. Thank you!
- F.Y., March 2018
Phil did a terrific job of discussing the process of the inspection with me and was able to answer any questions I had! He was able to turn around a report the next day that clearly identified the results of his inspection. I will definitely recommend Phil to any friends in need of a home inspection!
- C.K., March 2018
Phil was an absolutely meticulous professional. He listen/answered all my questions/concerns. He pointed out all the problems as he was doing his assessment and made sure I understood all the lingo. I would recommend Phil to everyone!!!
