Robert leaves no stone unturned - is very thorough - and sincere, engaged, and realistic. If something is not as it should be it doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't buy the property - Robert offers suggestions for repair or maintenance to mitigate future issues. Having this kind of knowledge helps one determine feasibility of replacement, repair, or realistically whether it's a worthwhile purchase despite any adverse discoveries. In other words, common sense prevails and Robert is a common sense kind of guy!

We couldn't be more thrilled with Mr. Smith's professionalism, promptness, courtesy, and reliability in his inspection of our prospective home. He delivered 100% as promised, and at a lower price than I anticipated. The reports with which he provided us are painstakingly thorough, and they've been invaluable in helping us toward closing on this property. He found details we'd never have even thought to look for. My only regret is that I didn't utilize his services twenty years ago when I purchased my first home.

Bob did a great job! He arrived on time, looking very professional, and was very patient and helpful with all of our questions. He was highly communicative via email, which made life easier for me so I could contact him on my schedule. His report was so thorough! We included the photos and his descriptions in a request for repair assistance to the home sellers, and they agreed to help us out--I really think all those photos were crucial in illustrating to the sellers what needed to be done. I am also really glad we ordered the extra asbestos test after Bob spotted some suspicous-looking insulation--it came back postive and we are going to get it professionally removed. That gives me peace of mind. Bob, we would recommend you again and again! Thanks!

Bob, I can't thank you enough for doing such a thorough inspection. I read over the report and have to say the level of detail along with the pictures is outstanding. I did a lot of research online before choosing an inspector and I couldn't be happier that I chose you to do the job. I learned a great deal about the house and your report will be used to negotiate with the seller. It was a pleasure meeting you. I will most definitely be recommending your services. Best Regards, Nicole

Bob did a fine job inspecting my condo. He was attentive to detail and thorough in answering my questions, and the resulting report was clear and well-organized. I also had Bob do a mold test on the property, and he proved to be efficient and knowledgeable in carrying out that task too. Highly recommended. Larry

I was immediately impressed with Bobâ??s quick turn around time to return calls and/or e.mail. The day of the inspection he was right on time, very knowledgeable, and professional. I really appreciated that he was easy to talk to and didnâ??t mind if I asked questions as well as getting in his way to look at whatever he was looking at. He was able to answer my questions to my complete satisfaction and great at explaining all that he was doing, testing, and looking at. I would give him two thumbs up, 5 stars, and recommend him to anyone! Thanks Bob!

He did a very good, thorough job and asked me if I had questions. He answered my questions and explained some things to me that helped me in making my decision on the property. The inspection report I received is very detailed, with many photos of the property and the areas inspected as well as all the thermal imaging pictures. It's very helpful to see the photos when going over the report.

Professional and courteous demeanor. Open & willing to take time to answer questions and educate me on all issues I was uncertain about. Inspection was not rushed. It was a very thorough process. I received my inspection report quickly which was inclusive of all the areas discussed. A picture is worth a thousand words and the report included a picture for every concern. Thank you Bob! It was a very exciting experience and well worth it! Sincerly, Rebecca Doe

When one has found perfection, there is no point in looking further. Robert Smith is by far the best home inspector! The report we received was not only informative, but written in such a way that even a novice homeowner would be able to understand what the potential problems are for the home and easily take the appropriate corrective and preventative steps. Anyone looking to purchase a home or with a home that is more than a decade old would be well-advised to have Robert Smith inspect it for them. They would not be disappointed with the suggestions for saving energy, safety concerns, and preventative maintenance. Needless to say, we are thoroughly impressed and satisified with the awesome service provided! Thanks again! Sincerely, Paul and Michelle Groleau
