What sets Kris apart is not simply his being knowledgeable and trustworthy, but also his excellent communication skills! We met Kris at our new house at the end of his inspection and he gave us a verbal rundown of all of the important points of our home inspection report, which was followed up shortly thereafter with the detailed written report. I appreciated that in all forms of communication Kris used words and terminology that even I, a not-particularly-handy-person, could understand. And he did this with respect and grace. An inspector’s job is to find things that are wrong, and no one likes to be the recipient of bad news, yet even when delivering this, his words and tone were thoughtful and kind. He happily answered all of our questions, told us we could reach out to him with any more questions (which we did), and he answered those with patience and grace, too. If you’re on the fence about who to hire as an inspector, look no further. With Kris you have found a true alley.

Kris did a great job! He produced a comprehensive report with lots of photos marked up with arrows to show the exact area of concern or specific issue noted in the narrative. His descriptions are easy to understand and offer clear remediation steps. He calls out what level of skill is needed and even what types of materials should be used to address each deficiency. The inspection was thorough and efficient. Kris is personable and knowledgeable. He answered all of my questions eagerly. I like a guy who gets excited about crawl spaces!
- B.K., May 2020
Kris produced a very thorough a detailed report within 24 hours of having completed the inspection.
- M.B., May 2020
Kris was quick, friendly, and efficient during his inspection. He was especially accommodating and considerate since my inspection had to happen during the Covid-19 pandemic.
- J.R., May 2020
I was extremely impressed by Kris' thoroughness and exactness to detail! I felt like he went through the house with a fine-toothed comb, catching every small detail, down to small cracks and nails. This was extremely helpful to know exactly what we would be dealing with as homeowners. He was very friendly and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an inspection!
- B.P., April 2020
Kris was great in less than ideal circumstances of COVID. He explained things in detail and went into further detail with each question we had. It was nice to get his professional perspective of the property. We would gladly recommend him!
- R.L., April 2020
Detailed and articulate report. Kris also took the time to explain in terms I can understand what his findings were. Great guy and will recommend to friends and family.
- D.S., March 2020
Kris was a consummate professional - his work and resulting report were highly thorough. He was also very personable and patient in discussing his findings and answering my questions during the inspection. My experience working with him not could have been any better. Thank you, Kris.
- W.C., March 2020
I found Kris to be very knowledgeable, polite, thorough, and I appreciate how he took the extra time to explain what he was doing and what his findings meant and more importantly, why they were documented. All expectations were set up front and were met. I would highly recommend this inspector.
- D.B., March 2020
The best job of any professional I've ever hired to do anything.
- R.S., February 2020
Very satisfied and will use Kris’ home inspection service again. Kris provided a thorough inspection. Every important point was explained in details on site with pictures shown. Report was elaborate, but clear and easy to read.
- D.L., February 2020
Kris was incredibly helpful, friendly, and willing to take the time to talk us through the entire process and his recommendations. He did a thorough job and was flexible on scheduling and working with us to find a time that worked with our schedule.
- J.W., January 2020
Kris was an absolute dream to work with. He was happy to accommodate our scheduling needs by working with our quick turnaround time.
His actual work was detailed and thorough; I have confidence that he performed a solid inspection. He hung around after the inspection to present his initial findings and answer the myriad of questions we had. Our final report was delivered that evening and elaborated on our discussions from that morning.
I can't compliment Kris enough. Every aspect of partnering with his was smoother than I could have imagined. Home buying can be stressful, but Kris is one thing you won't have to worry about. 10/10!
- K.W., January 2020
He's a great inspector. And he explains a lot. And he sends really good information on his reports.
- J.E., September 2019
Kris was incredibly thorough in his inspection of our new home and was able to articulate clearly any areas needing maintenance or further attention as we proceed in the homebuying process. Kris' scope of knowledge is evident in his exhaustive report and his friendly, approachable demeanor made the entire process both informative and enjoyable. Thank you Kris!
- A.J., September 2019
Kris was VERY thorough! I have been a part of 4 home inspections in my life and I can easily say that Kris is the BEST!! I will definitely be using him for any future real estate transactions where his keen eye and attention to the littlest detail is needed. Thank you Kris, for keeping our family and our future homes safety as your number 1 priority!
- J.J., September 2019
Would absolutely recommend.
- Y.O., August 2019
Knows his stuff-would highly recommend to anyone needing a home inspection.
- C.F., July 2019
Kris was extremely thorough in the inspection and we received a detailed report with images. We were on site during the inspection and we were able to sit down with Kris after his inspection to discuss what he found. He was able to provide pictures, point out some of the specifics in person, and share industry standards/recommendations for changes and maintenance moving forward. As first time home buyers, we especially appreciated his educational approach and feel like we learned so much - that will inform our purchase but also how we'll take care of our home for years to come.
- K.K., July 2019
Prepared, on time, skilled with exceptional communications skills with clients. As a Realtor, Of the 15+ inspections we've done through him, I am impressed with the quality, narrative and imaging presented in the inspection report itself. I have yet to see one comparable to Kris's documents. Our clients have high expectations. Kris meets those criteria and represents a key person in our overall business.
- S.I., Kirkland WA, July 2019
We LOVED Kris! He was super knowledgeable and very efficient. I'm so glad we picked him for our first home inspection (he was highly recommended by our real estate agent). Not only did he do such a thorough inspection but was willing to go over the big-picture things with us in person. He eased our worries and was honest and smart. Thanks Kris! -Lilly and Nate, Duvall, WA :-)
- L.S., July 2019
Kris did a very meticulous inspection and took the time to answer all our questions. Very happy with his service!
- S.M., June 2019
Kris, thank you so much! We have a big "to do" list with the house, but all achievable. I may have a question down the road, but will do as much as possible myself outside of the major professional work. Again, thank you so much for the detailed report and pictures. This will allow me to go 1 by 1 and prioritize. Cheers!
- B.F., June 2019
Kris is prompt, courteous, thorough (very thorough), detailed and kind. Kris arrived early and started work on the outside of the house prior to the appointment. He is very polite and willing to answer any questions I had regarding how certain things work in the house. He inspected a new construction for us and still managed to find very small details that need to be addressed by a very good builder. His inspection is detailed in descriptions and every item is shown with a set of pictures. The items he discovered and identified which I could request the builder to fix worth way beyond the inspection fee!
- J.C., May 2019
Kris was extremely detail oriented and explained his findings and opinions with clarity. I would highly recommend Kris and his team to my friends and would use them again in the future.
- J.F., May 2019
Kris was incredibly helpful, patient, and willing to answer my questions. I would definitely recommend him to others.
- E.H., March 2019
Kris was great! He came out last minute, was very thorough, and was also very kind. And his pricing was reasonable. I would definitely recommend him.
- J.D., March 2019
Wishing I could leave 11 stars for this fine individual. I never have any qualms whatsoever recommending Kris for a home inspection, knowing that he is thorough, effective, and has an excellent "bedside manner," if you will. He can explain to a layperson why something is a big issue, or if something that has caught the buyer's eye why it may not be the problem they assume it is, approximately the work involved in remedying said issues and what buyers should expect over the next few years in terms of life of different systems/roofs/decks/plumbing, etc.
He's also just an overall, very kind person and someone who I'm always grateful to see, knowing my clients are in the most excellent, capable hands.
- C.N., March 2019
Kris came highly recommended from a coworker of mine and after working with him, it was no surprise why. He was highly knowledgeable, personable, and did a great job explaining everything to us during our walk through. His report was very thorough and easy to understand, which gave us a lot of confidence moving forward. I highly recommend Kris and would gladly work with him again.
- R.B., March 2019
Chris is Efficient, thorough, funny, and patient!
- M.P., January 2019
Thorough inspection with great notes and explanation.
- L.B., January 2019
Best home inspector I have the chance to work with, Very thorough.
- E.W., January 2019
Kris is a true professional with a very delightful demeanor. The inspection was extremely thorough and I know that Kris will be there for me if I run into any issues after I submit my inspection report to the builder. It was a pleasure doing business with you, Kris. Thank you!
- J.D., January 2019
Kris was very thorough in finding all the issues and was very clear about what needed to be fixed. He also provided a great lesson on the various maintenance items I should do on an ongoing basis. He answered questions as I negotiated the final purchase agreement. He provided directions and photos in some cases to help me understand the issue. Everything was prompt and courteous.
- A.K., November 2018
Professional, kind, patient, personable, thorough...... Kris is a delight to work with!
- R.K., October 2018
Kris was very professional. He arrived promptly, provided our client with a detailed report and made himself available any time that our client had any questions or needed clarification. We would absolutely recommend Kris to any of our clients for future inspection needs. Thank you Kris!
- A.M., October 2018
Kris was punctual, fast, kind, and efficient. It was a pleasure to work with him!
- R.C., September 2018
Kris was great! Friendly, courteous, and professional all the way. We had a time crunch that left us needing an inspector within 24 hours. Kris moved his schedule around for us and never made us feel like we were an inconvenience. We will absolutely recommend him to friends and family who need the services of a home inspector.
- M.W., September 2018
Kris is excellent. He is very thorough in his inspections and had a very detail written report along with pictures ready for us to review very quickly. In addition, Kris pointed out both minor and any larger concerns in person as we were present for most of the inspection. We highly recommend Kris and will use him for any future home purchases should we need an inspector.
- J.M., September 2018
The very best!
- R.S., August 2018
Thorough, made great recommendations, and most importantly Kris made great conversation throughout the inspection.
- G.B., August 2018
Kris did a great job inspecting our new construction. He carefully explained what he was looking for and gave tips on future maintenance. His write up was clear and useful for a follow up meeting with our builder.
- J.E., July 2018
Kris was very thorough and explained all my questions. I feel as though Kris is very knowledgeable which showed me he really loves his work. His report is very easy to read and covers a lot of detail about the home I am purchasing.
- T.S., June 2018
I cannot recommend Kris highly enough for a home inspection! Below is a quick overview of why.
1. Detail: Kris was thorough during both the inspection and the write-up. His level of detail was much higher than the seller's inspection and allowed me to negotiate seller credit for some necessary repairs.
2. Patience: Kris spent hours on my inspection (and the home was not huge). He was efficient, but took any extra time he needed to explain his findings to me. I never felt that he was rushing or eager to move on to the next project.
3. Timeliness: While Kris took his time with me and the house, he then turned around and got the report back to me in less than 12 hours without sacrificing quality of the report. Again, this allowed me to negotiate with the seller before signing. In today's fast-paced market, every hour makes a difference.
4. Humor and friendliness: Kris will keep you chuckling throughout the process. He obviously enjoys his job and it shows!
Thanks again! Will tell all my friends and family.
- K.G., April 2018
Kris is thorough and organized. Perhaps even more importantly, my clients enjoy being around him. He is patient with all their questions and takes his time. He is extremely personable, while also being completely professional.
- A.M., Seattle WA, April 2018
Kris was excellent and very detailed in examining my own house as well as explaining conditions that I needed to be made aware of. As I am considering selling and wanted to be prepared prior to listing.
I am a Real Estate Broker and have been in residential sales since 1974.
Definitely will be referring Kris to future Buyers and Sellers.
