Great experience with Dave and Sheila! Dave carefully looked things over and explained things in ways that a non-handy and less experienced potential home buyer was able to understand. He was patient and took the time to listen and answer questions thoroughly. Sheila kept us all together and provided assistance and support throughout the process. The report is well written, easy to follow, and includes larger, user-friendly pictures. Highly recommend this team - they know their business and handle it extremely well.

Dave preformed a home inspection so I was able to list my home as, "Pre-certified." He was thorough, explained everything so that I could understand it and e-mailed me a detailed report about my home with photos, so that I could show potential buyers. Dave and Shelia make a great team, that I recommend you use again and again! ~ Heather
