Stuart Malamut was excellent. I met him at the property to attend the inspection. He engaged me throughout the inspection, educated me on the nuances he found, and physically showed me what he found to bring clarity to exactly what he was referring to in his report. He was extremely professional, made me feel confident in his ability to provide me the best inspection to make an educated decision on the property. Butch Upton was fantastic. Being a certified stucco inspector, he arranged to inspect the stucco accents on the house to ensure there were no signs of concern. I met him at the property as well, he took his time to explain what he was looking for and why. He pointed out a few corrections he felt was required to tighten things up. He was also extremely professional and gave me confidence in his ability to look out for my best interest. The quick turnaround on the inspection reports were appreciated. Both of your professionals are assets to your company and you should be proud to have them represent your business.

David Biggerstaff, our Inspector, was phenomenal. He was very thorough and took the time to walk us through everything that he found.

The inspector took the necessary time to inspect the property, and he was able to communicate simply as he shared his findings with me. I felt more at peace when he was finished with his report. He also went the extra mile to explain some ways to keep the house in good order should I purchase. Being a first time home owner, this was great support to have. Extremely professional, thorough, and helpful.

We had a very positive experience with Robert. He provided a thorough report and spent time walking through his findings with us, as well as answering additional questions we had (where is the water shut-off valve, etc.). We appreciated his willingness to take time to answer our questions so thoroughly and walk around the home pointing to show provide additional details about his findings.
