- M.D., July 2021
Bill is my inspector. He should be yours too! This is the 5th time I've used Bill Anglin for a Home Inspection. This time it was a bit different, though. 7 yrs. ago Bill inspected my 1907 home and at that time I did many of the needed repairs. As an aging woman, this time I needed a complete list of repairs and maintenance projects in the order of importance. He was professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and kind. Bill spent more time than expected going through my home from roof to VERY narrow crawl space and from corner to corner and everything in between. All systems were inspected. I now have a complete list of needed repairs with many pictures for clarity and, also, to help jog my memory later on! I can easily hand this report to a contractor and he will know exactly what needs to be done, no questions asked. This report was well worth every dime spent! Bill, thanks again for being so easy to work with and for a job well done!
- N.W., March 2021
Bill was very thorough with his inspection and demonstrated keen knowledge of all the systems in the house. I would recommend Bill to a friend.
- C.N., March 2021
Bill was super thorough. He answered our questions along the way, so we had a better sense of the issues. His home inspection report was detailed and helpful, both for us as buyers and for the sellers.
- B.T., February 2021
Very Thorough, explained in full detail any concerns, and was very friendly
- M.S., Spokane WA, November 2020
Very thorough and helpful with actionable advice in real time. Appreciate Bill's professionalism and expertise.
- J.H., November 2020
Bill did an amazing job inspecting our new home. He was so thorough and explained exactly what he was going to do. Bill is truly gifted at what he does and I would recommend him to anyone who in is need of a home inspection.
- B.T., October 2020
Bill was very informative! Thank you for walking me through the inspection report and explaining what improvements were most important, and which to monitor. As well as for pointing out access points for various systems that may have been otherwise not easily located. I will absolutely request Bill for any and all future inspections!
- S.B., September 2020
Bill was great! He took the time to explain and show you what he was looking at and why he was doing it. I would recommend him to anyone needing his services, he is very professional and personable.
- A.B., July 2020
We have used Bill several times and have never been disappointed. He is very thorough and provides a lengthy report. He always responds to questions and gives you the information you need to make “one of the biggest” decisions and purchases you will likely make. He is a true professional and usually our “go to” inspector.
- D.G., June 2020
Bill was on time, in fact he was early. He was great in explaining everything and making sure I understood what he meant. I left the inspection with no questions and knowing what my next steps were in regards to needed repairs and what needed to be monitored. I will definitely recommend him to others and will use him again in the future.
- K.M., May 2020
Very thorough and personable. Identified important problems and had good advice. Would use him again for sure!
- B.M., April 2020
Third time using Bill as our inspector. Was very attentive and answered all my questions. Couldn't give higher praise. Great interact and quick turn around on the inspection report. Beau
- B.B., November 2019
Bill is the best thanks again.
- P.S., October 2019
Best inspector I have ever used.
- P.S., October 2019
Frankly speaking, my words don't fully describe the experience with Bill. He is extremely friendly, open, and willing to answer any questions you may have through out the entire inception process. He is extremely thorough in his inspection, not to "bash" the house but to inform you to the best of his ability what needs to be fixed, what doesn't need to be fixed, or just what to keep an eye on. This is further illustrated in his report which he personalizes by sprinkling in tips and tricks for those "do-it-yourselfers" or first-time home buyers. I love these notes in his report because it gives me a suggestion for a fix or a straight fact on a non-intuitive building code. Bill's full report is an invaluable resource for whichever home you end up in because it will gives you so much insight specific to YOUR home, not just a home in general. I will be requesting Bill for all of my future Home Inspection needs.
- M.R., October 2019
Bill was incredibly helpful and communicative. He let us walk around with him during the whole inspection and explained all of the things he was checking and why. We highly recommend Sherlock Homes!

Thank you for walking me through the inspection and explaining everything so clearly of what improvements were most important. Sherry
- S.M., February 2018
Bill was very thorough, knowledgeable, and professional. He brings lots of equipment to the inspection site, ranging from the moisture gauge to the heat camera. He is literally equipped with all the necessary tools to detect every detail that might need attention or raises a concern. As a bonus to him being professionally competent, Bill is also an excellent communicator. He explains his findings in a clear and understandable manner, he answer phone calls and inquiries in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend Bill as a home inspector to my family and friends.

Thank you. I enjoyed you allowing me to follow you around and allowing me to learn my way around my possible new home. Your knowledge was exceptional and through
- D.H., October 2017
I have used Bill now for 3 home inspections over the years. He is very meticulous and you will feel that you know everything about your home after he inspects it. He also takes the time to let you know what you can do to fix any issues that may arise. By far the best inspector I have ever had.
- K.H., October 2017
Very very thorough and knowledgeable. Performed a very detailed inspection on a weekend and had a comprehensive report. Bill is a consummate professional with ample experience.

- A.L., July 2017
Great attention to detail! Always willing to show and explain findings. Very patient and attentive to homeowners concerns.
- P.L., July 2017
Bill did a great job with our inspection. He showed up on time, was ready to go, and walked me through the process as he answered my questions. He was very professional and his report far exceeded our expectations! The time he spent at our place was greatly valued. Not to mention, he seems to be just a genuinely nice person. We didn't need the inspection for financing, but only because we are buying my grandparents' home and wanted to know what issues we needed to address. So glad we chose Sherlock Homes and would definitely recommend Bill's services.
- R.C., July 2017
Bill was courteous, informative and helpful. We greatly appreciate how thorough and patient he was worn or report and questions. Thank you very much!

Thank you very much Bill. I couldn't believe how much goes into inspections. Your feedback was appreciated.
- J.R., June 2017
Bill Anglin provides a superior report. The report price was low and the product is top notch. I known exactly what needs to be done to my home and how to complete each task with the links and photos for each item referenced in the report. Bill was on time for our appointment. The report was furnished to us sooner than promised. This is the first home inspection I have ever had completed as my previous home purchases were all new builds over the years. Very valuable report to have. Thank you Bill.
- T.K., June 2017
Very impressed, detailed and thorough.
- J.H., May 2017
Did an awesome job meticulously detailing every little detail of the property! Can't imagine anyome doing a better job!
- K.M., May 2017
Bill was very thorough and would highly recommend him!
- K.C., April 2017
The report that Bill provided on the home that we are attempting to purchase exceeded every expectation! The depth of inspection was fantastic and it's obvious that he takes great pride in his work. The items that were documented were legitimate issues and his recommendations were biased neither toward the seller nor the buyer; they were reasonable, earnest, and of great value to both parties. After the inspection, Bill made it a point of contacting us to cover every detail to ensure that all of our questions were answered and that there were no misrepresentations made. He also made it clear that we should reach out to specialists for specific answers to our questions which was extremely appreciated. I will highly recommend Sherlock Homes and specifically Bill Anglin at every opportunity.
- E.R., April 2017
bill distinguished himself in all aspects, exceeded our expectations completely, and we will recommend him widely with our highest praise and confidence. having purchased homes around the nation and internationally, we have some experience with home inspectors. bill easily wins our 'best inspector ever' prize. for areas of potential improvement, and we struggled to offer even one; we'd welcome more of bill's advocacy on behalf of prospective buyers for properties bill inspects. for example, bill's findings at the 630 aspen property included issues with crawl space venting, passive radon system absence, front patio slab cold joint failure, gfci wiring faults in the kitchen, and more. with each, we would welcome his 'local market expect' assessment of estimated costs for resolution and perhaps names of contractors for us to contact. beyond that one suggestion though, we simply wish the above rating scale included '11' for bill alone. really superb work from a professional, attentive, interactive, and kind gentleman. on the basis of bill's assessment; we rescinded our offer and plan very soon to retain bill for our next inspection. thank-you bill so very much and work well done sir! best, betty and dave
- D.T., March 2017
Bill Anglin inspected our home in late 2009 as part of our purchase. Now he returned at our request as we go forward to sell the house! He is very detailed and provided 53 pages of his findings. We have already started repairing/adjusting items that he highlighted. He is very professional and friendly, and even made a small repair to our kitchen oven during his time here. Thank you Bill.
- J.L., March 2017
Bill, I soooo appreciated your patience and taking your time letting me follow you around during the entire inspection! You are personable and professional. You steadily kept on task and clarified any questions I had as well as thoroughly explaining what work was needed in the home to bring it up to standard. When done, I knew why the roof would need replacing in 3-5 years, the necessity as far as the era the home was built to have a sewer scope, where the automatic sprinkling system was hooked up and how it worked, why one extends linoleum under the dishwasher, safety issues, etc. Being a single woman buying a home, it is a necessity to know what needs immediate fixing and what can wait and know what down the road will need repair! GREAT job. I am thankful for your thoroughness and integrity! Respectfully, Annie
- A.S., March 2017
Bill was very professional and personable. He walked me through every issue with the house so that when I reviewed the written report I understood all of his comments and what needed to be addressed. Thank you for all you help Bill!
- L.C., February 2017
Bill was very detailed and a pleasure to work with.
- R.P., January 2017
Bill did a fantastic job. Very thorough and detailed in his inspection.
- E.A., January 2017
Very professional, courteous, and kind. Bill explained everything he saw in a way I could understand and how to fix the minor issues. He was extremely thorough in his inspection and I have no doubt he covered everything in the home, which gives me great piece of mind. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a home inspection!
- J.M., January 2017
Excellent work. Explained everything! Very thorough!!! Bill knows his stuff, would not trust anyone but him!
- C.M., December 2016
Bill, Recommending you to perform our home inspection was one of the best things our realtor has done for us. Knowing whatever issues there might be with a big purchase item like a home is an absolute priority in our opinions. You have saved us from the shock, grief, and aggravation of discovering home problems post-purchase by your thorough and detailed inspection reports. You inspect a home as if you are going to be living in it yourself, which we very much appreciate. Steve & Dolores P.

I would highly recommend Bill to anyone looking for a quality home inspector. Bill was there on time and went through the whole inspection with me answering questions as they came up. Next time I am in need of a home inspector I will be calling Bill.
- R.M., October 2016
Bill's report was very thorough and documented clearly stating all inspected parts of the home through detailed description and photos. Since we could not be at the inspection, he followed up with us to go over the report and any questions we had. He was very nice to work with and would highly recommend him for home inspections.
- C.W., October 2016
Bill’s inspection was very thorough and precise. He took time to fully explain all aspects of the process and his write-up was very detailed but easy to understand. Bill’s inspection was exactly what we were looking for in a home inspection. Thanks Bill!
- L.S., Spokane WA, October 2016
After 3 home inspections, all done by Bill I was able to find a house that was structurally sound, affordable and safe. His comprehensive and extensive home inspections were completed in a professional manner including lengthy phone conversations that touched on serious safety concerns. The inspection document itself, is an excellent point of communication, should I decide to hire contractors to complete recommended repairs. I would absolutely recommend Bill Anglin's Home Inspection services to any future, potential homeowner. Bill's Home Inspections provided me with certainty and clarity when faced with home seller disclosures of "I don't know" and I highly recommend his services.
- , October 2016
Bill, your customer service and work ethic exceeded all of our expectations. Your visit was very informative and educational for both of us. We appreciate your eye for detail, your patients with our questions and the sheer knowledge you have in your field. Much thanks! We will definitely recommend you to everyone we know and reach out to you if we need your services in the future. Keep up the good work.
- B.S., October 2016
This is my second home inspection by Bill Anglin. Both inspections were Professionally done and incredibly thorough, documenting the condition of every major house system (plumbing, electrical and structural), including observations with respect to costs of repair. I also received follow up phone calls, that highlighted and summarized the 59 page plus reports. Bill's home inspections have allowed me to make an educated decision with respect to buying a decent house. Investing several hundred dollars to keep from making a $100,000 mistake is well worth the price. As I continue my search for a new home, I will hire Bill again because I know he will tell me honestly and unequivocally, if my next house needs minor repairs or major remodeling.
- , September 2016
Bill did a very detail and thorough job. We were very impressed with him and would recommend him without reservation.
- D.S., September 2016
You did an amazing job. We feel confident moving forward with purchasing our home because you shared your knowledge and suggestions with us. Thank you!!
- L.C., August 2016
Bill is a great home inspector, and I am extremely happy with his inspection to my new property. He looked closely at every aspect of the house from its plumbing, electrical system, and everything else. I am currently overseas and Bill made process easy and very simple. After the inspection, I received the home inspection within a couple days. Great Service! Thank you Bill
- M.S., July 2016
Profesional service and friendliness. Will recommend to others.
- J.M., July 2016

- Y.G., June 2016
We are so happy with Bill performing our home inspections. He's caring, prompt and professional and has a thorough knowledge of home construction that provides us with a sense of security and knowledge of the home he's inspecting that is as beneficial to the seller as the buyers. We'll always use Bill for our home inspections as we know we'll get a complete report as well as helpful suggestions to assist with future home maintenance...and he treats us like family. Keep up the great work Bill!!
- K.C., Phoenix AZ, June 2016
Very thorough, and professional.
- R.O., June 2016
Bill is an extremely thorough and knowledgeable inspector. The inspection took over twice as long as the last one that we ordered on a comparably sized home. We really appreciated the running commentary during the inspection. This permitted us to weigh the findings without having the physical report and this was important to us due to a short time frame.
- M.H., June 2016
Bill was very thorough. The property looked like it just needed new carpet and paint. He discovered minor water damage that could have caused further damage if not repaired. This discovery helped us make an informed decision.
- R.D., Spokane WA, June 2016
Thanks Bill, you did a very thorough inspection and I appreciate it.
- S.D., May 2016
Bill was very thorough and took the time to explain not just what needed to be fixed in our new home but a variety of things that we ought to do regularly to properly maintain our home.
- D.T., May 2016
Bill was fantastic! He took time to look over everything thoroughly. He also explained everything in detail and answered all my question. I would recommend Bill to anyone purchasing a home.
- C.A., May 2016
Thank you so much! Bill was awesome. He explained everything to me '& was very thorough, checking everything in the house
- J.T., April 2016
Fantastic job! Extremely thorough.
- J.K., April 2016
Bill's thorough inspection, detailed report, and suggested repairs were top notch. Bill came highly recommended and I couldn't agree more. Not only did he list defects, but he showed pictures, descriptions and links to web sites that detailed how it should be and how it could be fixed. As a buyer I doubt you could find a better inspector to give you an accurate understanding of the condition of the home and of needed repairs.
- J.C., April 2016
Very thorough!! Thanks for everything Bill!
- S.P., April 2016
