Glenn, Thank you for the very thorough home inspection, and thank you for doing it on a Sunday! I have successfully received the detailed report. It appears to be very well organized, detailed and the photos are most helpful.
I was extremely happy with the home inspection and Glenn. He is a very professional inspector and made sure both I and my client understood all aspects of the report and the home.
Glenn, It was a pleasure meeting you today at our home inspection. I will add you to my preferred list of home inspectors. It is a short list, so you will hear from me again.
Glenn, it was great to meet you today. Tony my buyer was very impressed with your thorough home inspection and appreciated the time you took to speak with him about the condition of the home. I am extremely impressed with your timeliness and will definitely add your services to the rotation on our team.
Glenn was fantastic -knowledgeable, patient, and willing to answer all my questions. I feel so much better about buying my first place after talking with him and reviewing his home inspection report. Every issue was described in detail, with pictures, specified what needed to be done and gave an indication of severity of the issue (basically, what I need to deal with first). I have an electrician coming out before contingencies are released so I know what it's going to cost because of Glenn's suggestion. I will not hesitate to recommend your company to my friends and family. Thank you for everything!
I am an investor and I was so impressed with Glenn's thorough review with another home inspection that Glenn performed so I requested Glenn for this property. I like his approach of an explanation first as far as what we should expect during the home inspection and the review after the inspection of what deficiencies were found. It is nice knowing what to expect in the report. For the future I will always request Glenn for my home inspection needs. - Thank you.
I am very impressed with your company when I scheduled the home inspection. Glenn did a great job inspecting the property. The next day he provided a very detailed report with photos; plus a summary of the most notable deficiencies, beginning with safety and health items. He was able to answer all my questions with clarity and great depth of knowledge. Thank you for making this a pleasant and educational experience.
