Testimonials

Russ is amazing! He's knowledgeable, takes time to explain everything on the report, has suggestions for prices on how much a repair may cost, what's a high priority to be fixed and where your risk tolerance lies for minor repairs. No question Russ is the guy!

Russ is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I appreciate him being such a positive part of our new home.
- M.M., November 2016
Mr. Mathewson did a very thorough and professional job inspecting our home-to-be. He even found things that the roof inspector and the pest inspector overlooked. He took the time to listen to my questions and gave clear easy to understand answers. I would definitely want him to inspect a future home for me.

Russ Mathewson was great. As I was doing a 'fast close' of an older home, he was sure to go through the major points of his inspection- even before his timely report arrived, so I could remove my inspection contingency on the sale contract. Relocating from a metro area of 2 million people to Greater Ridgecrest has been unnerving to say the least. It can be hard to find what I would consider 'true professionals' in any given field, or knowing who to trust. Do not be concerned, as Russ is a true professional by any standard, knows what he is taking about and takes the time to impart his vast knowledge in regards to any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you ********** ten stars !

Very knowledgeable and was able to reassure me when I was fearful of not knowing what I am getting myself into if I purchase the home, as it is the biggest purchase I've ever made, as well as one of the most important. I just wanted to make sure it was fully inspected and that I would not purchase something that I didn't know if it needed major repairs or not. Russ was very honest and friendly and went over all the information with me completely and

Russ is very prompt, professional, and trustworthy. After he completed a thorough home inspection, he gave me his card and told me that he makes himself available to his customers for questions anytime from that point on. He assisted me with several questions, he spent many hours of his own time researching unusual issues with the home. In addition, he created and maintains a website, which lists reputable local licensed contractors. I highly recommend his services.

- S.M., September 2011
Russ spent more time at the property than any other inspector in our community would have done. He then returned for another consultation with the buyers spending another hour or more just reviewing the defects of the property with them. The buyers were extremely satisfied with the report and have confidence in Russ. I will recommend Russ to all of my buyers! Monika Lenz, broker associate Coldwell Banker Best Realty Ridgecrest, CA
