Sheldon was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the home. He assisted my husband and I immensely with walking us through and explaining everything about the house. Sheldon was a joy to consult with during inspection and my husband and I really appreciate the wealth of knowledge that he bestowed upon us as first time homebuyers! We would recommend Sheldon to anyone who is looking for a home inspector!

- R.R., August 2016
The service was incredible. Sheldon was professional, through and knowledgeable. He took his time and ensure that I understood everything, he managed my expectations on what my home should feel, operate and look like. This was my first time building a home and I was not happy with the process and unsure of the quality of craftsmanship use by the builder. However the inspection that I received for Mr. Faison made me rest my mind knowing that the builders are fixing the issues that were found and that I am aware of how my house operates.
- W.S., August 2016
They were very helpful and very knowledgeable. I was taught a lot.
- K.W., August 2016

They made an effort to point out little details that I need to fix and pay attention to. I was very impressed with their knowledge and professionalism.

- M.M., Washington DC, April 2016
Very thorough inspection conducted on the home on 41st Street in DC. We were leery about purchasing a renovated property due to the horror stories we've heard about unscrupulous builders. Mr. Faison took us through the entire house and explained all nuances of what we should and should not see to our satisfaction. I've been through this home buying process three times and this by far was the best home inspection we've had performed thus far. Alton C

Great person to have as an inspector. Explains everything he sees with insight on best possible way to handle them.
- T.H., December 2015
Sheldon was great. As first time home buyers there is no way we would have known what we needed to know about home maintenance without Sheldon. We feel much more comfortable taking on a mortgage because we know exactly what we're buying. Sheldon and Sheldon are a great team and are extremely knowledgeable, punctual, and courteous. I would gladly work with him again. Do yourself a favor and take a bit of stress out of the home-buying process with an inspector who is going to do a thorough job and give you an education at the same time.
