Russell was professional and worked with my schedule. He had quick response time to emails and was on time for his appointment. Very friendly and I would recommend him again!
- H.K., June 2022
Russ is a true professional. Communication was excellent and he was right on time for the inspections and water test. He also generated an inspection report very quickly. He took his work seriously but also had a sense of humor and common sense that made him easy to work with. Most importantly, he was committed to assessing the property carefully and to making sure that I understood any issues he found with the house and septic system. By the way, I strongly recommend getting a septic inspection from Russ even if the house is fairly new and wouldn't seem to need one. It is worth every penny.
- S.R., May 2022
Russ did an amazing job on our inspection - very Comprehensive, Super Proffesional, Timely and complete my home is complicated property and he reviewed all the aspects of this wonderful old home . I would recommend Russ again and likewise use his services again if needed. Thank you Russ great job
- M.R., April 2022
Russ came to us highly recommended by both our realtor and our friends in the area. He was clear and concise about his availability, costs, and timeline. He coordinated with the seller's realtor so he could place the Radon test in the house prior to his physical inspection, was early/on-time for our appointment, and was extremely thorough but very efficient during the inspection. At the end of the inspection he gave a thorough verbal debrief and was prepared to show some pictures when we had more detailed questions. Our inspection results were relatively clean, but we had no expectation that we would receive the full detailed report by that evening (on a Friday no less). Professional and straightforward through the whole process, thanks Russ!
- K.D., March 2022
Russell is knowledgable, highly detailed, and conveys his information and opinions in a straight-forward manner. All good qualities of a professional home inspector.
- M.D., March 2022
I checked out a few inspectors in the area. He turned out to be one of the few who provided all the services needed! Extremely professional and thorough. I will only use Bird Dog in the future.
- J.J., December 2021
Extremely thorough with the building. Explanations of problem areas large and small easy to understand. All problem areas come with detailed recommendations .
- S.O., October 2021
Russ should be everyone's go to inspection person; he did a wonderful job on my inspection. He provided me with a very detail report & I will only be calling him in the future..
- P.M., September 2021
Very thorough, clear information. Great communication before the inspection and very helpful throughout. We would definitely recommend Russ in the future!
- A.B., September 2021
Russ was great. We live in another state so he did the inspection without us present. He was so thorough and sent a detailed report. He had a cancelation so he did our inspection the day after we contacted him. Very easy breezy to deal with. Thank you so much Russ.
- D.O., September 2021
Russ was very responsive and did a fantastic job with the home inspection. He really pays attention to detail and that is exactly what you want in your Inspector. In addition, his website and initial app is very quick and easy to fill out so you can get the process going very quickly.
- J.M., September 2021
Russ inspected a home for us that was built in 1860 along with a new addition built in 2015. His inspection process is thorough and he is meticulous reporting on his findings. We also liked the fact that he is not an alarmist and gave us clear explanations of all the issues and pointed out which are higher priorities and which issues concern items that we should just keep an eye on in the future.
- R.Z., August 2021
We would highly recommend Russell for home inspections. He is professional, knowledgeable, and very responsive to questions. Russell was a pleasure to work with! Richard and Anne Larnard
- A.L., August 2021
Very thorough inspection overall. I highly recommend Russ's septic inspection if you have one.
- J.V., July 2021
Outstanding turnaround and attention to detail. We needed someone fast, reliable and thorough. Russell was all that and more. If our primary house were closer, we’d ask him to check that one too. Top marks. Thank you.
- D.L., June 2021
Russ had done the inspection on the house I sold a few months back so I knew how thorough he would be when I needed the inspection for a home I was considering buying. I was not disappointed and Russ provided the results I was looking for, easing any concerns about moving forward. I would absolutely use him again if I needed to and would highly recommend his services to anyone buying a home in the area he covers!
- D.P., Putney VT, April 2021
Russell was so extremely thorough, thoughtful, and helpful throughout the inspection process. Our report was easy to read, and I absolutely loved how much care and detail went into it. Every few pages I'd look at my partner and say "this is...incredible!" Highly recommend Bird Dog Inspection for any of your relevant needs!
- A.S., April 2021
What a great inspection job! Russ was on time, helpful, meticulous and professional. The reports were detailed and the pictures very helpful to our understanding of various issues. I would happily recommend Bird Dog Home Inspection!
- S.B., March 2021
Russell was very thorough and explained every one of his findings. His report was amazing and every detail was professionally presented with high quality photos for each finding. I would 100% choose him again for a future home inspection. Thank you Russell!

Russ does an excellent job -- provides a clear report with good pictures.
- B.C., October 2020
Russ was very thorough and quick to respond to emails. I highly recommend Bird Dog!
- T.R., October 2020
Russ met or exceeded my expectations at every level. He has excellent background and hands on expertise across a wide variety trades at the highest levels. Perhaps most importantly, Russ is thorough, listens and communicates well. I would unequivocally recommend Russ Rosinski for any type of home inspection .
- B.L., Raleigh NC, August 2020
Great customer service! Russ fit me into his busy schedule to help me close on my condo as soon as possible which was very much appreciated. His inspection report was thorough and he was responsive to all of my questions. His report was also very user friendly and helped identify and flag issues that required attention/fixing prior to closing and were easily sent to the seller. Would highly recommend.
- K.D., August 2020
Great interaction with Russ. Inspection was done timely, reports were detailed. Would definitely recommend Russ to friends and family.
- E.C., July 2020
Russ Rosinski is a superb home inspector. His professionalism and attention to detail are awe-inspiring. His inspection saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars on a home we liked but which had so many invisible underlying issues--but not invisible to Russ-- that we ended up terminating that purchase, thank goodness. Then we hired Russ again for the place we eventually bought, and would hire him again in a heartbeat. Wish I were as good at my job as Russ is at his. Highest recommendation--there aren't enough stars on the scale to rate him--he's off the charts.
- H.B., July 2020
Russ is professional, efficient and well respected by the real estate industry. His reports are comprehensive. We would absolutely use him again and unequivocally recommend Bird Dog Home Inspection.
- G.O., June 2020
Very easy to book an appointment. Russ was very focused and incredibly reliable. His report was fact driven and very detailed. I was very impressed with the service and how thorough the inspections were. I highly recommend using Bird Dog Home Inspection.
- J.B., June 2020
Russ was great, finding things left out by another inspector. He came out during the COVID19 crisis, and responded quickly and efficiently to our requests, concerns, and questions. I would recommend his knowledgeable, responsive service to anyone.
- J.H., April 2020
Russ was tremendously helpful. He is exceedingly thorough and his report was formatted in a way that could be easily understood. He clearly distinguishes any immediate concerns upfront and follows with an in depth report loaded with pictures. Report available online and for download. Very professional and not a stone unturned.
- J.G., April 2020
Russ is awesome in every way. Great communicator, punctual, thorough, great with follow up!
- S.G., March 2020
Russ was incredibly thorough and honest, but also helped us keep it all in perspective. He gave us an idea of how serious every issue was, and kept us from panicking about the little stuff. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.
- C.P., March 2020
Russ is extraordinarily efficient, thorough, knowledgeable, and polite. In addition he was very patient with questions I had about the inspection. This is the second home inspection Russ has done for me, and he continues to have my highest recommendation!
- M.A., January 2020
I would highly recommend Russ. The inspection was both thorough and expeditious, and Russ' explanations were very helpful.
- G.G., December 2019
Russell was very professional and thorough. We were very satisfied with his service.
- K.P., November 2019
This is my second home inspection with Mr. Rosinski, and he was amazing! The inspection was timely, thorough, and it was written with great care and was very complete. I would highly recommend Russell Rosinski.
- E.C., November 2019
Our inspection was done promptly and thoroughly. Very detailed, with photos.
- J.Y., September 2019
I appreciated his efficiency and thoroughness -- obviously the home inspection is one of many hoops to jump through in buying a home, but this was also a good learning experience for me as someone who's never owned a home before. The report is easy to understand and a good tool for prioritizing repairs/remediation and planning for ongoing maintenance.
- K.M., August 2019
This is long overdue, I submitted the request online and Russ got back to me the same day. We set an appointment for the following week and I got the report back the night of the inspection. His report was extremely thorough and explained each issue in detail. He also provided information on items that should be addressed in the future. I highly recommend him if you are looking to purchase a new home!
- L.M., South Newfane VT, August 2019
I think you are very professional and helpful in sharing information. I especially like your use of the "Home Gauge request list followup feature - that is a great feature for your clients. thanks, Meg
- M.S., August 2019
What I appreciate about Russ, is that he is prompt, polite, is always available for follow up calls. Russ is a hard worker who gets his reports out very quickly. Thanks Russ!
- S.P., July 2019
Highly professional individual who made every attempt to keep me informed in a way that made actual since. I would definitely recommend him and would absolutely use his service again. Excellent job!
- E.B., July 2019
Everything about working with Russ made it an excellent experience: he responded to our request quickly and did the home inspection within the week. We received the inspection report that same evening and had radon and water tests back in 2-3 days. The work was meticulous and comprehensive, and his interpretation of the information was understandable and realistic. Also I know that we can follow-up with him if we have further questions. Highly recommend!
- C.G., July 2019
Russ is prompt, personable, knows his business inside and out, and delivers. We have hired him twice in the past year and have not one complaint. We would recommend him to anyone who wants the truth about a house, and wants a thorough job done.
- M.H., June 2019
Very thorough and diligent. The reporting provided was very detailed. Buying a house is an investment and important to know what you are buying. I had viewed the house on 2 occasions, prior to the home inspection, one included bringing a home improvement contractor with me. The additional concerns found in the inspection were very important call outs and helpful in help us make a decision. Very happy that we called Bird Dog Inspection.
- D.N., June 2019
Russ IS the bird dog when it comes to sniffing out a house. I've used his services several times because I trust his abilities. He knows how all the house systems work and recognizes when they don't. His website offers support for homeowners who need guidance for getting organized to remediate a house and make it into a home.
- B.T., Park Ridge NJ, June 2019
Thanks for your attention to detail. This will be most helpful as we now have a comprehensive list of what's there and what's to come.
- E.T., June 2019
In my job I am involved in the oversight of over 300K sq. ft. of office and special use buildings including the current reconstruction of a 130K sq. ft. nursing home. That experience is the basis for me to say without hesitation that Russ did an excellent job identifying concerns and issues for the home we are considering purchasing. I have worked with a number of inspectors/commissioning agents/engineers over the years but almost none were as efficient (and personable) as Russ. If you're looking for a through and quality home inspection report you will not do any better than engaging the services of Russ Rosinski.
- R.B., April 2019
I don't know if it was Russ R. or the seller's agent, but the arrival time for the inspection was changed, and no one let us, the buyer who is paying for the home inspection, know of the change in time - so we were shut out of the home inspection. We did not like that. And the inspector did not have change for our cash payment, so we lost $9.50 in the exchange - no we will not go broke because of this. Otherwise, we give Russ a #10 on the inspection report - it is much more than we expected - and will help us to repair the needed repairs when we get some extra money. Thank you again, Russ.
- M.H., March 2019
Russell Rosinski just finished inspecting a home for me. He was on time, very professional and very patient considering I asked a lot of questions. He was very thorough and when he was finished he went over everything in detail. I received a quick turn around on the written reports too. I would recommend Bird Dog Home Inspections to anyone, you wont be disappointed.

We have had to schedule the inspection remotely, as we do not live in state, and we found the whole process of working with Russ very efficient and easy. Russ was always quick to reply to our questions and communication with him has been great. The inspection report was thorough and detailed and really helped us in knowing how to proceed in the purchase of the house. Turn around on the inspection report was also very quick, so we did not have to wait long to get the results of the inspection. We would highly recommend Russ to any potential client.

Would definitely use Bird Dog again, and recommend to others!
- J.L., March 2018
I was absolutely delighted with the home inspection Russ provided. Not only did he spend hours pointing out the houses problems, he offered several cost-effective fixes. My friend came with me whose father and brother were home inspectors. He said he had never seen such a comprehensive report before. In addition, Russ took his just very seriously and very little else. It was great to laugh during this very nerve-wracking time. It was a great inspection performed by a great inspector.

Very detailed report leaves nothing to the imagination. Every area well documented with photos and comments. Russell is good about returning calls and shows up as scheduled. I got what I paid for and then some!
- P.B., January 2018
Russ covered every inch of the home. Following him through the process was a total education in owning this particular house. This was impressive but then the next day he had the report to us, complete with dozens of labelled pictures, thermal imaging, and many recommendations both for urgent fixes and useful improvements. In short, Russ's inspection was 100% great and we would recommend him to anyone.
- D.L., January 2018
Russ is an amazing home inspector. How do we get a Russ in every state?! He was so thorough, on time, professional and not an alarmist all while being very detailed.

Russell Rosinski exceeded my expectations for a home inspector. He uncovered a number of areas for improvement (AFI) and actions recommended (AR). All conditions were well documented, illustrated with images and his report provided solutions to correct the condition. Without a doubt, this was the best home inspection report I have ever seen. I deeply appreciate his thorough evaluation of the property. This was money well spent, great value.
- R.M., October 2017
Russell was very professional and thorough with his inspection and I would highly recommend Bird Dog Home Inspections. Tom Avery STS Properties LLC
- T.A., October 2017
Russ was so very thorough and clear with his recommendations...very easy to work with, open to peripheral questions during the inspection and advised that I didn't need a service, which saved me $150. Impeccable service!
- B.H., September 2017
I am a first time buyer and didn't know what to expect from a Home Inspection. What I received was a detailed and thorough report covering areas I never would have thought of. I especially liked the included photos of potential problems which helped me to understand their significance much more than just listing them without the photos. Service was prompt, professional all the way and price more than reasonable. When searching for a home, everything can look great in the photos but you need an experienced professional to peel back the layers and give you the whole story. Great job, Russ, and thank you.
- G.B., September 2017
Russell was great to work with! He delivered the thorough report very quickly and was super kind and communicative.
