Thank you so much for your services. Waylon did an outstanding job for us . Waylon was very professional and knowledgeable of his job. Honestly he saved us from purchasing the home. There is truth in the saying, “you can’t judge a book by its cover”. Please let Waylon know how we appreciate him. Chris, Waylon went Above and Beyond on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 for us. Hoping you have a good day. Thank you again, Chris Gieselman

Precise, on-time, thorough, professional, quick turnaround, excellent service. These are all words I would use to describe Chris Matthew's inspection service!
- B.E., August 2020
Chris provided a thorough review of the prospective home we are considering to purchase. I am a licensed structural engineer myself, with over 35 years of experience, and have personally built several homes myself. Chris' review included several items that I missed on my personal walk-thru. I am very satisfied with the comments and concerns he identified, and the recommendations he included in the report. His review was WELL worth more than the fees he charged to do this review. Absolutely recommend him for those considering or in need of a review.
- H.P., August 2020
Chris was very thorough in his investigation a very courteous and helpful on the phone. We were surprised at how Trump lie he was able to complete the investigation and get the results to us. I would definitely recommend him to others.
- E.P., August 2020
Would definitely recommend. Did an inspection and saved me from wasted money time and heartbreak. Also explained the most serious problems. What would need to be repaired before moving in. Requested Chris for a 2nd inspection but he was unavailable. He sent a highly recommended replacement Landon Matthews.
- L.B., WASHINGTON NC, August 2020
- N.T., July 2020
I am pleased on the through inspection that had taken place. This helped me by seeing a lot issues of concerns that need to be discussed with the buyer.. I was not aware of all the problems just by looking at the place.. The inspection write up describing the issues and pictures of concerns were very helpful. I am highly satisfied. Thanks again.
- S.M., July 2020
We were very pleased with the job Chris did!
- M.P., July 2020
Good company and very helpful. They did everything when and how they said they would. Landon Matthews was my inspector - Good Job!
- W.F., Minnesott Beach NC, July 2020
Waylon was very thorough and detailed oriented. He took my call to discuss the inspection during his lunch and was extremely accommodating. Since I am in Dallas, the inspection is critical to my final decision. The site was very helpful each step of the process. Thank you!
- R.B., The Colony TX, July 2020

- D.N., July 2020
This was the 5th such home inspection report that I have read through in the past 2years. That said, Chris did a great job on the evaluation and the report. He is very thorough in in each aspect of the evaluation. The report itself was a very easy read, better than other reports I have had that confuse the seller or buyer. Chris did a great job and I absolutely recommend him.
- E.J., July 2020
North Carolina is one of the states that do Not require homeowners to disclose any things that are wrong with the property they are selling = "Buyer Beware!". The only peace of mind that you can get, is by having inspections done by certified inspectors. My real estate agent recommended Chris to inspect the house I am considering purchasing and I am very glad she did. Chris did the general inspection and also a wood destroying insect (termites and other bad bugs) inspection. Chris was able to come out very quickly upon being notified by my agent, which was awesome = so quick. Chris did a very thorough inspection and he found: some electrical problems that are not up to building codes, as well as some water leaks, slow drains, most of the windows not being able to be opened, most of the baseboard heaters not working, water damage, a slightly sagging ceiling and other things that are of concern. Now I have a thorough and accurate report to give to my agent, who can then negotiate with the seller, so that I won't have to bear the cost of all of these problems. Chris inspected the house at noon and the results were completed and a link sent to me by email that same night, with easy instructions on how to access the inspection reports. I was able to log in to the website in seconds and view the results online and even able to download and save the inspection results in the PDF File format (which every computer is able to open). The format of the inspection results is very easy to read, well laid out and detailed descriptions are included (as well as some pictures even). I highly recommend Chris. He has replied to my emails very quickly and has answered all of my questions completely. Already told him that if for any reason this house purchase falls through, he will be inspecting the next house I win a bid on. Thanks again Chris for all your help!
- E.V., July 2020
Chris provided a very professional and thorough inspection. We appreciated his 'layman' descriptions to any defects we needed to be aware & how they may or may not cause problems going forward.
- H.F., TAYLORS SC, July 2020
I selected absolutely to recommend Mr. Matthews for his inspections. He was thorough and detailed. I am extremely satisfied with his knowledge and abilities.
- T.K., July 2020
Chris came in and did a thorough, detailed job inspecting the home. We are very happy with his work and the resulting report.
- D.I., July 2020
Thank you for the easy to read and detailed inspections!
- T.N., Greenville NC, July 2020
I would recommend Chris for an inspection as he done an awesome job given all the areas that he could review and inspect on this actual property. He treated the inspection as if it was a property that he was looking into purchasing. To be a first property that I have looked into. He has made it at ease to discuss and of course a learning factor of unknowns within properties.
- R.C., July 2020
Great Job. Done very timely. Report is full-featured and highly useful.
- M.L., Greenville NC, June 2020
Our report was through, detailed, and written in a easy to understand manner.
- V.C., Centereach NY, June 2020
Chris has created a seamless online model for connecting his clients with experienced, professional, and effective inspectors. Reports are in depth with easy access to online PDF's that include pictures and excellent descriptive details for buyers, sellers, and agents. I would highly recommend this company for any and all inspection needs. Great job!!
- J.A., June 2020
I give 5 stars for service, professionalism, communication, friendly. Overall great experience. Chris set me down & explained everything he was doing and everything he found in detail. I’m so pleased with his service I’m hiring him to do a follow up to make sure that everything that the seller agreed to fix is indeed fixed.
- N.H., NEW BERN NC, June 2020
I was very happy with Chris Mathews. He was accommodating of the quick turn around I needed for a home inspection. The report I received was very thorough and helpful in making the decision to move forward with a home purchase.
- S.H., Paducah KY, June 2020
Very thorough inspection and also convenient to have home inspection and termite inspection done together. I am very pleased and would highly recommend Mr. Matthews!
- B.P., June 2020
Your professionalism and thorough inspection is unmatched. The inspection of a 53 year old property was meticulously executed and a potentially disastrous investment had your work not exposed the damages and safety hazards. My family is truly grateful for your service and commitment to your customers and profession.
- A.C., DPO AE, May 2020
Very quick and the report was spot on. Got way more information than I was thinking I would. Thanks for doing a great job.

- E.H., May 2020
Very thorough. And reasonably priced for our new home inspection!
- K.M., May 2020
Always prompt, thorough and his work has always helped in making my decisions about a property. It has also helped in my negotiations as a buyer.
- W.B., NEW BERN NC, May 2020
Excellent knowledgeable and all around superb experience. Very thorough at all points in their inspection and took time to explain every little piece at time of inspection without having to wait on the formal report. Highly recommended!
- D.B., May 2020
It was a big house with lots of special features and he didn't miss anything! Thank you.
- K.H., May 2020
Excellent inspection. Extremely thorough. Very courteous & helpful. Absolutely knowledgeable about what to look for. Amazingly prompt in issuing a lengthy, yet comprehensive report. Some confusion in names, which isn't really a problem. I've had a problem with others names on a first time basis all my life. Also, my name is most often confused in spelling & pronunciation.
- K.S., May 2020
Outstanding and thorough inspection. Highly recommend Mr. Matthews for your home inspection!
- T.R., New Bern NC, May 2020
Chris was very professional and courteous. He answered all the questions I asked in ways I could understand. I would highly recommend Chris !

- M.T., April 2020
Hello Chris! Just wanted to tell you now good of a job you really did. I will definitely be calling you for all of my home and pest inspection from this day forward. Thank you for being so thorough in your work. You really do a wonderful home inspection. Thanks again.
- M.T., April 2020
One word that describes Chris and his team is "impeccable". From their honest communication, thorough performance, and professional appearance, I am so grateful, that they came highly recommended. When I received the report, is was so thorough and well organized, that I agree with others, that it will determine my decision on my purchase. My recommendation to all, before settling on a home, is to call Chris and his team as the first task on your list, not towards the end of the buying process. Bravo Advance Termite!!!! Kudos!!
- M.O., New Bern NC, April 2020
Very quick and efficient work! He explained everything to me in terms I would understand and sent the finalized report within minutes of finishing. Would absolutely recommend Chris to others!
- A.P., April 2020
Great detail. Didn't buy a house because of your inspection. A lot of hidden problems. Will definitely use again when me and the wife find another home we’re interested in.
- J.K., March 2020
- J.A., March 2020
Waylon was very thorough,prompt, and respectful.
- D.P., Wallace NC, March 2020
Very thorough inspection! Highly recommend.
- A.L., March 2020
I'm helping a very special client in an area I'm not very familiar with, so I looked to HomeGauge to find a local home inspector that also handled pest inspections. I'm so happy that I found Advanced Termite and Home Inspections! Chris answered all of my questions for my client, and his inspector Daniel was very thorough and knowledgable. If I ever have another client in this area again, I know who I'm recommending for the home inspection! Thanks guys :)
- T.M., March 2020
Chris was very thorough and knowledgable. My father-in-law is a retired county building and home inspector with extremely high standards for an inspection and he was also very impressed with the report. Chris took the time to answer all of my questions, explain his findings, and ask for and address my concerns. It was an overall fantastic experience and we will definitely use Chris again and recommend him to friends and family.
- R.G., Greenville NC, March 2020
Chris was professional in every way. He answered all of my questions and performed a complete and factual inspection. Thank you Chris.
- B.S., March 2020
A friend recommended Chris to me. I contacted him via email and he responded to my request within a half hour. He scheduled the pre-sale inspection at the same time to take place within a few days. That was amazing to me. He showed up as scheduled 5 minutes early. WOW. I am not used to businesses around here doing what they say they are going to do when they say they will do it. And his inspection was very thorough. I should have hired him before I purchased this house. He was courteous and professional. I like the web site he uses to. I cannot say enough good things about him. I will be happy to complete another survey should potential buyers get a survey to see how the reports match up.
- S.L., March 2020
Very thorough, professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Very good system of providing, accessing and responding to report.
- R.D., February 2020
Chris, I was very pleased with your timely arrival at the inspection site and the thoroughness of the report. I feel you did an excellent job and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in need of a home inspection.
- S.R., February 2020
Chris scheduled my inspection quickly. I received my report quickly and it was very thorough.
- S.B., Kinston NC, February 2020
He did an outstanding job. The level of detail was very suprising. His explanations along with pictures gave me a clear and precise description of the condition the home is currently in. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Thanks for your assistance in a very stressful process.
- N.A., Yuma AZ, February 2020
Very knowledgeable and personable. Informative.
- S.R., Mt. Olive NC, February 2020
Waylon was on time, did a thorough job, answered my questions, and offered insightful information. I am very pleased with the level of professionalism and since I did not ultimately purchase this particular home, I will definitely hire the same group for the next candidate home.
- D.G., February 2020
Chris did a great job and was very easy to talk to. He carried himself in a very professional way and did a great job inspecting the house. I would definitely recommend to future home buyers
- T.K., February 2020
My experience was great. The inspector was already hard at work as arrived at the house. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He had no problem answering my questions, even if they didn't pertain to the home inspection in question. Once he was finished, he had my report prepared within minutes. I will absolutely recommend Chris to my friends and family in the future!
- C.R., Havelock NC, February 2020
