i am extremely pleased with your work, your web site, your comprehensive report... You are the buyers friend. My very resent experience with another inspector was very disappointing with the lack of an accurate or comprehensive report. a previous contract and inspection on this property that had fallen through compared with your report left the sellers speechless with the faults and problems brought to light. i highly recommend you to anyone looking for a prepurchase inspecction.
- J.P., July 2015
I was completely satisfied with the inspection Tom did for me. He was awesome!!!!

Tom, I was very pleased with your knowledge of the inspection you did on the home I am purchasing. Not only were you there when you said you would be, you also pointed out the items I was concerned about and gave me a straight forward answer. And thanks for the report, for it was very easy to understand with the drawings, explanations, and pictures. Thanks again! Jimmy
- J.L., February 2015
A great job inspecting our property.
- R.D., January 2015
We hired Tom to thoroughly inspect our property prior the expiration of our first year home warranty. The cost was very reasonable and affordable, his service was professional in every aspect, and he has proven his expertise to be very valuable. Having uncovered multiple issues and important problems that the builder will now have to address at no cost to us has made our choice to hire him a huge relief. We would never have recognized the deficiencies, perhaps may have even suffered some devastating situations in the future even, had it not been for his vast knowledge and experience through this inspection process to detect and report on them for us. If you are investing in a home, this is the man to request before your warranty ends, so that you as a home owner will be protected!!!
- J.K., January 2015

He was quite thorough and very professional, easy to work with.
- P.L., July 2014
Absolutely the best home inspector we've ever worked with! He is extremely thorough, documents everything with clear photos, and explains his report in detail--even suggesting repair methods and basic ways to stay within a budget without sacrificing quality. After the HVAC inspector left, he even pointed out an issue that the AC guy had overlooked at the power box which is a fire hazard and absolutely must be repaired. In addition to being grateful to Tom for his sharp eye and ethical practice, we highly recommend this gentleman and will use him again. In fact, we look forward to it. Thanks, Tom.
- W.A., July 2014

The performance and care you took on providing me a home inspection not only answered a lot of questions, but revealed a lot of things about the home that were not disclosed oon the sellers agreement of the description of the property. As a result of this you have saved me thousands of dollars that I would have spent on a home that is not worth it. I would definitely recommend Tom to anyone who is purchasing a home.
- L.N., May 2013
Excellent service, on time very thorough, great service! Well worth the $250 fee!

I have never had a home inspection as thorougher than the inspection by Tom Nichols. He went over the entire house with a "fine tooth comb". Every appliance was throughly checked and notes made if any deficiencies were found. He also checked the structure from roof to concrete slab and noted all deficiencies with very clear pictures and explanations. All in all Tom was the best inspector I have ever had and I have had home inspectors check out several homes over the years. The very best!
