What Our Customers Are Saying
Jeff was very informative throughout the inspection and asked me if I had any questions. Knowing that Jeff built homes in prior years gave me some extra comfort while he was inspecting the residence. I asked him a question about knocking a wall down and he explained to me the smartest method of approach to accomplish the project, just awesome.
It was absolutely a pleasure to work with Jeff. He was extremely diligent in his work and really took the time to explain everything to me. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Great, professional job.
We absolutely love Jeff’s home inspections. Even though we had to see him twice due to a failed close, we enjoyed having his timely yet thorough explanations and detailed pictures of exactly what needs the home requires and even the minor fixes that are not a major issue but can also be improved. His years of experience as a builder shows through in every area! When ever we buy again, we are calling Jeff!
Very professional and extremely knowledgeable. Went above and beyond explaining everything he found and went through.
Very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly.
