Jim did a very thorough inspection. He went through items with a fine tooth comb and we feel very satisfied. He did the inspection and turned around and gave us the report all in the same day! Thank you House Master!

Friendly, competent, informative, answered questions appropriately, and gave relevant references/recommendations when warranted.

The personal service is the main reason. Jim was very friendly over the phone even though I've never met the man. He seemed knowledgeable and found issues very easily missed.

Jim is always prompt and courteous. His reports are well organized, clear and easy to follow.

– Shelly

Mr Heck was great to work with. He went way above & beyond what was necessary for us, and I would be more than happy to continue working with him on our future inspections.

– Stuart
Minden

Jim was thorough, took photo's of conditions so that I would get a better idea of what he was looking at that needed attention. Very thorough, professional. The inspection I understand took at least 2 hours, I am impressed.

Not happy with how long it took you to do the inspection nitpicking on small items is not cool

– John S
Coleville, CA

I’m not sure at all what you’re referring to as “nitpicking”. There were several important defects and that’s my job, to report what I see. As a licensed inspector, I have to conform to a set of standards that adds up to almost 300 things to comment on or observe at an inspection. If there was any particular item you were concerned about, feel free to contact me anytime.

Carson City

My main concern was you delayed the process of doing this you received the order on the 6th of January and you didn't do the order until the 23rd which delayed my closing of the loan

– John S
Coleville, CA

Are we talking about the same house in Coleville? The inspection took place on Dec. 9th. The report was completed by the end of the day. ??

– Jim
Carson City

My mistake Jim sorry about that I thought it was the appraisal FHA I apologize. We're cool.
