Testimonials

Thank YOU for a job well done! I appreciate your professionalism especially when dealing with the sellers ,when they gave their unsolicited responses to the inspection that I the buyer paid for. You handled yourself extremely well and I love that. I also love the fact that you explained everything .....you just didn't do your thing and explained your findings at the end of the inspection. I appreciate the fact that you also gave us things to do for the basic maintenance or upkeep of the property. I feel better about the purchase of such huge investment!! Thanks a MILLION

Tim Bills is the most thorough and detailed oriented home inspector that I have found in my 37 years as a Realtor in Northern Virginia.
