Justin was not our inspector. Russ Valleyfield was our inspector. I sent him a follow-up email asking for clarification on a couple of items in our report and he never responded.

This is the second time that I have used Justin for an inspection. He is very thorough and explains things in even greater details during the inspection than in the report. The report is a great punchlist for me to prioritize repairs and upgrades.

Geo was very professional and did a great job with our inspection. I would happily use him again for another project.

Justin was phenomenal and very thorough. This is the second home he has inspected for us, and the first time he conducted has inspection he saved us from purchasing a lemon of a home. This inspection he exceeded all expectations. His attention to detail was outstanding, his willingness to explain in detail his findings was refreshing. Justin is an asset to your company and I will recommend him to friends and family.

Justin was very thorough and explained everything he was looking at/for. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
- E.M., August 2017
I would recommend Justin for anyone looking for a specific individual for inspection. Justin was very friendly and knowledgeable in this profession. He gave us a lot of advice on our first home purchase. A special thanks to Justin as we had to request for a report within 24 hours due to the seller's agent threatening us to sign the contract within the next day. Justin was able to accommodate our urgent request and got the report to us before 24 hours. I have nothing but admiration for someone who love their job so much and at the same time helping others so genuinely.
- S.C., August 2017
Justin was very thorough and took time to explain what general maintenance should be done on the home we are purchasing.
- A.R., May 2017

Justin thank you so much for being absolutely thorough. I couldn't have chosen a better inspector for this home. I am just so pleased with the overall experience. I will definitely be in contact again for future home inspections and continue to recommend you to clients, friends and family of mine! Thanks again.

Justin was just fabulous! I am a first time home buyer so I had a lot of questions. He was very thorough and explained everything to me as I followed him around the house. He even gave me a lot of good advice. His report included everything we talked about and was very detailed. I would definitely recommend Justin and First Choice!
- N.K., January 2016
Justin is a true professional! He uses his skills in a systemic approach for the inspection and goes through everything methodically. In addition to identify problems, he spent time educating me on proper ways to take care of a house. The report is very detailed and easy to read and understand. I am so happy that I have chosen Justin and the First Choice as my inspector and will highly recommend him to my friends and colleagues without any hesitation or reservation. Thank you so much, Justin.
- J.L., August 2015
Extremely pleased with Justin's inspection. I would highly recommend First Choice Inspection Services.
- E.B., July 2015
Justin did a great job walking me through the whole inspection process and really explaining to me in detail what he was seeing while walking me around. Granted he was also training a new inspector at the time, which might have explained some of the extra explanations, but either way I felt really taken care of throughout the whole process. Based on his thorough and honest report I will probably have to pass on the house that was inspected, but I will definitely be back to have him inspect the next one!
- J.S., July 2015
Justin was very thorough, and explained the home inspection process in understandable terms. He offered several helpful tips for new homeowners, which provided me with more confidence to begin that journey. Justin was extremely professional and I completely trust his judgment.

Justin, thank you for a professional home inspection. After the inspection I felt that we had received an education. Many problems surfaced but we never felt pressure to make a quick decision. Inspections are intended to alert a buyer to problems but the final decision is the buyers. Our final decision on the property was one based on fact and information. Great job!
