Mr. Esposito was thorough and very informative. He took the time to explain and show me how the major appliances operate (i.e. the water heater, electrical panels, etc.) He also gave me helpful tips on how to maintain certain areas in the home. He was friendly and patient with all my questions. I would definitely recommend Mr. Esposito to family and friends.

My husband and I are very satisfied with Mr. Esposito's professionalism. We had the inspection the day after signing the contract. The report is very detailed and informative. Investing a few hundreds before purchasing a home can save you thousands in the long run. Thank you again. Definitely will recommend! God bless you for the work you do. 👍

I had a great experience with John Esposito's company, the House Detective. The inspection was very reasonable and extremely professional. The equipment he had to inspect the house ,(moisture detector, etc.), was quite impressive. I didn't expect that level of sophistication for the reasonable price I paid. The turnaround in providing the report was extremely quick...same day if I remember correctly. The reporting tool that he has online is very user-friendly, and allows you to view the entire inspection report, or just what his recommended repairs are. You're able to customize it for your needs. The report is professional and very easy to read. He did find a few minor issues, which I was able to negotiate with the seller. More importantly, I received peace of mind that I was getting solid home. I would recommend the House Detective to anybody looking for a home.

John was an excellent and extremely thorough inspector who went above and beyond to explain the details of my home inspection to me a novice first time homebuyer buying a 1 family home in Queens, NY.

- B.F., July 2014
John, Thank you so much, especially for letting me know which personal property is still usable. That information will save me thousands of dollars. I now also know what I may be able to speak to the seller about as far as repairs or concessions, although it is a Fannie Mae foreclosure. I'll give that a try and see what happens - it can't hurt. In any case, I feel so much better knowing what those previously hidden costs may be now, so I'm better prepared for those those.
- I.S., July 2014

- T.M., February 2012
John, amazing job from start to finish. You went far beyond providing just an inspection. You provided us a sense of security with your work, honest professional opinions, patience in answering our questions and I also realized how you handled the subtle aspects of the job like performing in front 8 people which included the sellers agent and 3 of the property owners and more importantly my wife AND her MOTHER (2 of the harshest critics anywhere!) all the while picking proper times to relay important information to us and privately countering the agents who downplayed the severity of some of the issues. I can go on, but you get the idea. I was totally satisfied that I hired you and my wife and her mother all commented how good you were.... that alone speaks volumes. Thanks John! See you at the next inspection! -Larry
