Here’s what some of our customers have to say about us.

Debbie M

Fred was an incredible (and friendly!) home inspector to work with; not only was he thorough and provided more than what we expected, but he also explained what he was inspecting and what to look out for in the coming months. Fred also kept everything very clean, and checked in with us every so often with updates. We also got our report very quickly within 2 hours with a detailed writeup. We would highly recommend Fred!

Jefferey S

Fred, our home inspector, demonstrated exceptional professionalism and dedication to his craft. From our first interaction, his commitment to ensuring that we were well-informed about our new property was evident.

Fred’s efficiency was further highlighted when he delivered the inspection report. Not only was it provided swiftly, but the quality was also top-notch. Every detail was well-documented, accompanied by clear photographs and concise explanations.

All in all, Fred is more than just an inspector; he is a guide through the complex world of homeownership. We highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a thorough, professional, and approachable home inspector.

Fred was professional and helpful, explaining what he did as he inspected our home. He offered both objective assessment in his report and verbal opinions about risks, when asked. I’d definitely hire him again.
