- R.H., November 2020
Keven was great to work with! This is our 2nd inspection he has completed for us. Knowledgeable and helpful for asking our builder what findings we should prioritize having corrected prior to close. This is a New Construction Home - worth the money !!
- L.F., Marysville WA, August 2020
I have used Keven for over 15 years! He is my #1 go to inspector! Together we have worked on hundreds of properties together ranging from luxury homes up to 2.6M, multi-family apartments, condos, town homes! Keven can do it all! He is professional, prompt, knowledgeable, very kind and easy to work with. My clients LOVE Keven because he communicates clearly and provides solutions and helps to keep sales on track.

Kevin @ True North Home Inspections Is excellent @ what he does! His website navigates smoothly. Booking online was easy & I setup my inspection within days. True North’s pricing is more than fair. I received my written report the next day. Review the sample report on the website & compare it to other inspectors . Thanks to True North my family is safe. (Did Not Close)
- J.S., Renton WA, September 2019
Best inspector that I've encountered. Incredibly detailed and thorough work. Will definitely use Kevin again. I've already recommended him to my family and friends.
- S.Y., September 2019

Keven was exactly what you are looking for in a home inspector.  Clearly knowledgeable about his field with the experience to support it.  The property we had inspected was fifty years old and had had questionable maintenance over the years, as well as some "unique" improvements.  Keven had extensive experience in the area and with homes of all sizes, ages, and condition and was in no way daunted. 

He did an excellent job prioritizing what needed to be done.  His report was extensive, yet easy to read for a layperson.  The information we gained from his inspection has been invaluable with creating a plan to restore and renovate.

Keven is friendly and professional and I can't recommend him enough. 

- L.F., March 2019

Keven was professional and knowledgeable during our inspection. This is our second time requesting his service and he was great! Both times he was thorough and efficient. I can rest easy he did not miss anything. 

- K.N., March 2019

Keven was very thorough and professional. I will definitely be calling him again for any future inspections.

- L.R., Bothell WA, March 2019

Keven was extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and used the latest technology and tools to conduct our new home inspection giving us peace of mind and identifying potential issues no other inspector could identify without the tools and techniques he used.  Highly recommend! 

- B.M., Kirkland WA, January 2019
Keven is thorough with his inspections and he is very knowledgable with the Housing rules and regulations, which is great. He is easy and flexible to work with, which makes the whole experience smooth
- B.S., December 2018
Keven does an awesome job! Very thorough, able to catch issues from the obvious to the obscure. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and patient, willing to share insights, and explain things. We had a great experience with Keven, we highly recommend, and would definitely use again!
- M.J., November 2018
It was a pleasure working with Kevin. He was not only able to point out issues but gave several tips during the inspection that could help a potential home owner with energy cost in the future. Thank you Kevin for everything.
- M.B., September 2018
Professional and Great Service. Totally recommend.
- K.C., BELLEVUE WA, March 2018
You're a true professional!
- J.F., February 2018
Extremely impressed with the attention to detail in regards to inspection and reporting.
- J.B., January 2018
Thank you for everything you did! Much appreciated!
- C.B., November 2017
We've hired Keven on multiple occasions and have been more and more impressed each time he completes a report for us. Keven is extremely thorough and professional, and always put's the interests of his customers first. We highly recommend Keven to anyone who wants a quality home inspection that will be second to none! The Anderson's
- A.A., October 2017
Kevin came highly recommended by a friend of ours. We find that recommendation true to the word. We hired TrueNorth services twice now. Kevin is thorough, incredibly knowledgeable with building code and PNW conditions. Kevin also keeps you in the loop thru out the process. Our report(s) are detailed - pics and video included. Thermal images help a great deal w/ conversations we had to have with the builder. All in all, we find Kevin's inspection outstanding.
- A.N., September 2017
You caught things I saw while on the casual observation as a buyer. Very thorough and its VERY much appreciated. John
- J.S., Anchorage AK, September 2017
The best of the best!!!!
- K.F., Federal Way WA, July 2017
He was quick, thorough and efficient. Highly recommend him.
- M.K., July 2017
Keven was very thorough with his review! He has inspected 2 houses for us so far and we will absolutely use him again for future inspections. His report included great thermal imaging shots showing issues that would normally be invisible and he now does video to further help convey information that is vitally important in understanding the health of a home. Because of the friendliness of Keven and the very strong open and honest inspections we are now seriously considering having him do yearly inspections for us.
- C.B., July 2017
Keven does the most thorough and comprehensive reports out there. His information is accurate and reliable. His experience in the industry is trustworthy and I would not want my Buyer's working with anyone else. When working with my Sellers, they also benefit from using Keven before putting their home on the market. This is part of my listing strategy and it gives both the Seller and myself confidence to list the home without putting ourselves at risk to leave money on the table due to some other inspectors report or Buyer's agent's negotiations. We are equipped to sell at highest and best list price when we inspect first.
- G.W., March 2017
Keven was awesome with his service. I have never had anyone using thermo technics; mind you I just moved from S.F bay area and sold the home about 7 months ago. And the home inspector didn't have any of the high tech analysis as Keven has done. I was very impressed with his work. He was also very pleasant, too.
- J.K., January 2017
Keven was great! He is very knowledgeable, thorough and professional. He will take the time to explain any of his findings so you can be educated on what you are looking at in a home. His reports have an excellent use of pictures and video to display exactly what he is finding. We have used his services twice and will definitely again if needed.
- M.F., Rocklin CA, December 2016
Very detailed report. Loved the thermal camera because of its purpose and compactness. Will definitely refer him to my friends.
- J.M., December 2016
Kevin, It was a pleasure to have you inspect our house. You are very thorough, knowledgeable, and have great PR skills. Your report was well organized, easy to read. Thank you, Billy
- W.W., October 2016
Keven is fantastic. Super detailed and does a great job with follow up.
- S.D., January 2016
I have used Keven exclusively for over 12 years and he is THE ONLY inspector I will recommend to my clients! Not only is his work top notch, reports clean and crisp, thermal technology amazing, his great communication skills and professionalism helps keep deals together
- J.D., December 2015
Keven was wonderful!! He was very detailed in his work and made us feel very comfortable during the inspection process. I would recommend him to anyone and would use him again myself.
- W.R., TACOMA WA, August 2015
Awesome job, gave plenty of information.
- E.R., Edmonds WA, August 2015

- K.R., July 2015
- K.M., June 2015
excellent service, extremely thorough, fast turnaround to get the very detailed report. Very helpful on recommendations and very good value for money.
- r.h., seattle WA, June 2015
Keven was amazing! He provided one of the most detailed and thorough reports I've ever seen, and the videos he provides with his reports really help to educate the homeowner about potential problems and their causes in a very clear way. He arrived on time and explained his process and recommendations during the inspection. He also spoke to our builder and convinced them to go above their contracted requirements in order to provide added ventilation in our upstairs crawl space and prevent mold. I would absolutely use Keven again for my future inspection needs and cannot recommend him enough for yours.
- E.v., Seattle WA, May 2015
Comprehensive inspection. Money well spent!
- K.J., May 2015
He is excellent guy for house inspection. No other words.
- S.B., Bothell WA, March 2015
We feel the report was very well detailed and helped us convey to the seller items that they really did not want to hear about. The video report was especially impressive of the items that need to be addressed. We appreciate your skills and experience and would definately use or recommend your services in the future.
- R.M., March 2015
Thank you for a very thorough inspection and explaining the process. And for the timely report. You were very personable and easy to work with. Again, thank you for your professionalism.
- L.d., Benton City WA, January 2015
We have had Keven inspect four homes for us in the past 10 years and he always exceeds our expectations. He is extremely personable and thorough when performing the inspection. he goes above and beyond what is required of a home inspector and he will always be a step above the others. Thank you so much for taking such good care of your clients and such pride in your work!
- K.D., January 2015
Second time we have used Keven's services. He is fast, thorough, detailed, and to the point. Highly recommend!
- A.B., November 2014
You are always fabulous!
- D.S., September 2014
Keven was very thourough and professional. He took time to explain everything and had the state of the art equipment to ensure that anything needing attention was found. He addresssed our concerns and provided an easy to follow presentation of what needed to be done. We would reccommend his services to anyone buying or selling a home.
- K.M., September 2014
Keven did an excellent job and performed a very thorough inspection for us. He was very professional in a semi tough environment and provided a detailed report that was most helpful in making the decision to purchase this house or not.
- d.h., monroe WA, August 2014
Professional, knowledgeable and detailed. Definitely would recommend him.
- S.H., Redmond WA, June 2014
Thanks Kevin. Looking forward for re-inspection.
- U.M., June 2014
Kevin was very knowledgeable and professional. I would/ will be recommending him to anyone I know who needs an inspection completed.
- M.O., June 2014
Thank you for the most thorough inspection that I could hope for. I will recommend you to anyone I know that is looking for a home inspection. Thanks again, Lon
- L.P., June 2014
Kevin, Great job uncovering the settling and moisture issues. I decided to walk away from this property after talking to numerous structural engineers. It sounds like the settling issue is huge with newer cantilevered townhomes. Hopefully will find another home soon. Thank you, Rob
- R.M., Issaquah WA, April 2014
The best. Direct and honest
- M.M., April 2014
I've used Keven for over 10 years and he is the ONLY home inspector I will recommend to my clients. Jason Decker Windermere Real Estate
- J.D., April 2014
- J.C., March 2014
Honestly, we were initially skeptical about having a thermal but since purchasing a home is a big investment we thought it wouldn't hurt. Turned out it was worth every penny, and probably would have paid more. Keven takes pride in his job and is incredibly thorough, detail-oriented, and has a critical eye; Obviously all things you desire in an inspector. This was our second inspection and it was supposed to be thermal-only, but Keven found several items that were of concern that our first inspector did not find such as a leak above our bathroom (something you would never find in a traditional inspection that didn't leave trace). The fact that he took the time to look around outside the thermal was impressive. The report we received was also incredibly impressive and concise with pictures to help the reader understand exactly the problem they're looking at even though they're not well-versed in the lingo. If we could do it again, we probably would have gone with Keven only.
- J.K., January 2014
Keven is a great home inspector, he is very thorough and professional. I was very satisfied with his good work the first time and asked for his help again the second time when I put an offer on a different property. Again, very satisfied with his work. I'd highly recommend him to anyone!
- T.W., November 2013
I've worked with Keven for over 10 years and he is by far the BEST inspector I've used. He is as good as it gets with regards to skill, knowledge, great reports, technology and clear communication. He is THE ONLY inspector I can recommend. Jason Decker Windermere Real Estate
- J.D., October 2013
Keven, It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday. I'm thoroughly impressed with your professionalism and how you've incorporated technology into your business. The reports are organized and well written. I look forward working with you in my next real estate transaction. Warm Regards, Mary Pong, MBA Better Properties Seattle
- M.P., October 2013
I was very impressed with Keven's level of knowledge and professional service. I would absolutely use him again for future inspections for my buyers, and I will recommend him to others as well.
- S.B., October 2013
Always professional and courteous, extremely competent and helpful.
- R.A., Stanwood WA, September 2013
Keven has done many inspections for my buyer clients in the past. He is always on time, very professional and is accessible to the buyers throughout the inspection should they have any questions. He gives a brief overview of the major issues at the end of the inspection and quickly gets a copy, including photos, of the entire inspection to both the buyer and the agent. I highly recommend him for any home inspection. Cheri Ingram, Windermere
- C.I., Kirkland WA, August 2013
Thank you for your professionalism and prompt reporting.
- L.O., Mill Creek WA, July 2013
Thank you Keven, your inspection was very thorough and truly appreciated. Early suspicions on mold and leaking and your follow through to the smallest of crawling spaces revealed some major issues that need to be addressed in negotiations and are safety and wellness concerns for ourselves and our children. Definitely will recommend to future homebuyers.
- S.M., June 2013
I've been doing inspections with Keven for 10 years and he is as good as inspectors get.
- J.D., May 2013
Kevin's inspections are thorough, including photos and videos that document existing and potential problems for the homebuyer and seller. I recommend having him do an inspection on your home once a year.

Kevin was great and every thorough. Loved the report and the detail.

This was my first experience working with Keven. He arrived to the inspection appointment several minutes early. He was very professional, knew how to use the latest technology, was available to the buyer if they had questions, explained issues thoroughly and overall did an excellent job. I would highly recommend him!
- C.I., Kirkland WA, August 2012
Keven does an amazing job! He explains things well and really focuses on those small things that you may not notice. We will definitely be referring Keven to all of our friends!
- T.S., Seattle WA, July 2012
Keven does a great job when inspecting a house and gives great information regarding how to make repairs. He is willing to go the extra mile to make sure his customers understand everything he is going over during the inspection. Keven has currently inspected three houses for my wife and I with no complaints. Keven drove from Monroe WA to Camano Island to inspect a house for me. Keven's pricing is better than other people I have quoted. Great job no issues or complaints from this customer. Ronald and Tiffany Meyer
