My wife and I don't know a lot about houses so the fact that Anthony was nice enough to really take the time and go over even the smallest details with us about the house we are looking to purchase was awesome.

– Todd L.

The inspector was very professional and knowledgeable about his field. But more importantly he encouraged my client to follow him throughout the home and ask questions. From top to bottom, he explained to my client exactly what he was checking and why. He even offered simple solutions for repairs and/or maintenance.

This is our third time using HouseMaster and every time Anthony Carrozza and his sons, all were professional, thorough,informative and made that extra effort to make sure the job was done on time and right! I highly recommend them to others all the time. Thanks again for yet another job done well and making it easier to move forward with our purchase. Sincerely, Karen

Anthony was well spoken and worked efficiently. He took time to explain to my clients every area of the inspection and each noted item in the report to ensure they had a good grasp on it. I appreciated his friendly demeanor and helpfulness. It make this process more enjoyable when you can work with pleasant and professional people!

– Jenny C.
Lancaster, PA

Tony was very friendly and knowledgeable. I am a first-time home buyer and he was very helpful during the inspection. He was thorough (the inspection took over 2 hours) and answered all of my questions. He noticed and documented even the smallest of things. He was also helpful in providing general information and offered recommendations on things I would need to do on a regular basis (as simple as when to change batteries in the smoke detector, to ensuring I knew to monitor the sealed crack in the sidewalk so that I could ensure it remained sealed over the years). I would highly recommend him to any new homeowner!

– Gwen M.
Manheim, PA

Being first-time home buyers, we had never been through the inspection process before. Zack inspected our property, and he was very patient and thorough. He answered all our questions and didn't try to rush through any part of the job. Our inspection report was in our hands within hours, and this allowed us to immediately begin discussing repairs with the seller and not lose any momentum in the purchase process.

– Ryan B.
Columbia, PA

As first time home buyers, we have needed to rely on the expertise of professionals to help guide us through the process of buying. We are so thankful to have found Tony as our home inspector! From the moment we met him, it was clear that he is fantastic at and enthusiastic about his job. He answered every question we had, gave us even-toned advice about what is urgent and what's not, and was an absolute joy to work with. I would recommend Tony to anyone!

– Mary A.
Elizabethtown, PA

Anthony was a pleasure to work with. He methodically laid out the process he would be going through, communicated each step, and I felt went the extra mile to explain things to me. His attention to detail was second to none and while I felt I had a good understanding of the items we needed to look into further, his report laid out the story in an easy to understand and well documented manner. If Anthony is any indication of the professionalism and commitment to service HouseMaster stands for, I would highly recommend this company for your next home inspection.

– John G.
Ephrata, PA

My clients love your entire team! Your team does a very thorough job and explains things to my clients in ways they can understand them.

Zakary Carrozza-One of the most professional individuals I have every worked with. Inspection was very completed. The reports were exceptional in appearance and it was completed and delivered in a timely manner. I have requested Mr. Carrozza for my next inspection and would recommended him to anyone and everyone!

– Lawrence S.
Hummelstown, PA

This was my first time recommending you to a client...and my clients made a point to relay to me how impressed they were with your work, and that they'd definitely recommend you in the future. They had even tried to set up an inspection with another company...and long story short, they chose you hands-down. Thank you!

– Chelsea E.

I refer this family owned business to all my clients. Tony, Zak, and Anthony Carrozza are professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. My clients follow "the inspector" throughout the home from attic to basement, asking questions along the way. At the end of day, my clients receive a comprehensive report with in-depth explanations of the findings and plenty of pictures. It is a pleasure working with the HouseMaster Team. ~Diane G Reedy, Realtor Note: You may share my comment with my name.

Yes, we got to the unit a little late, caught up to Zak, and wow, what a fantastic son you have. And, to the point, a great home inspector. My hat is off to you!

– Allen C.

Anthony was a consummate professional. While inspecting our home, he took the time to show my wife and I any trouble points he felt needed discussing. He gave his honest opinion without any bias whatsoever. HouseMaster is a family owned business and it shows through their employees in the best way imaginable. I would definitely recommend HouseMaster in the future without hesitation.

– Matthew T

Tony Carrozza is very professional and his level of experience was clearly apparent during the inspection of this property. He explained the process and was available for any questions or concerns I may have had during the process. Upon completion of the inspection, Tony, stepped me through his report showing me the photographs and the results of the inspection. He had the finalized report completed and transmitted to us just several hours after the inspection. It was a pleasure meeting and having Tony as the inspector of this property.

– Greg S.
Coastesville, PA

I have had two homes inspected now and both were done with detail and perfection. Both inspectors were very easy to work and talk with and explained everything they did and were going to do in detail. I will use HouseMasters for every home I buy in the future.

– Jedd M.
Lancaster, PA

Have had sub-standard inspections in the past. Your inspector was extremely thorough, explained every finding in detail, made excellent recommendations for safety upgrades. The report was ready and delivered same day and was easy to read, with supporting, annotated photos. Just overall a very professional job. Far over and above the quality of inspections I've seen from other companies. Left me with a high confidence level that I knew everything about my soon-to-be new home.

– Jessica M.
Marietta, PA

Zak was very thorough, professional, and answered all my questions in a courteous manner. His report was very comprehensive and greatly exceeded my expectations. It was clear to me that he was very knowledgeable about his work. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
