We used Jim for our first home purchase inspection. We bought a townhouse that was built in the 80's and we had a lot of concerns that after we purchased, it would fall apart. My fiance and I were just about to get married and both in college when we made this purchase, so needless to say we were under a lot of pressure to get a lot of things done. Jim was extremely quick to respond. I emailed him about our interest in using him for our inspection and he returned my email within 30 minutes on a Sunday afternoon. His price was not only the best we found in our search but a flat rate no matter how long the inspection took or what he found, which was wonderful for a young couple in college. He worked with our schedule easily and explained everything very well, answering any possible questions we had. Come inspection day, Jim was early, prepared, knowledgeable and confident. He was very meticulous and left not one part of the house untouched. He even wiggled his way up into our roof, even though the entrance was located above a number of shelves in a very small closet. Jim even gave us some advice on how to keep our older heating system clean. After an extremely thorough inspection and lots of questions from this concerned couple, we were extremely satisfied with his work. Jim went above and beyond when my father (who does not live where we do and was concerned at not being present for the inspection), emailed him a list of questions about the home. Jim called him immediately and answered every question he had and put all his worries to ease. Jim then had our inspection report done within 3 days. The whole process of the inspection with Jim was the least stressful part of the whole home purchase. Not only was he very qualified for the position, but very at ease and friendly. We found Jim to be a wonderful person to work with and would gladly recommend him to anyone.
Thanks again Jim. I cant tell you how much we appreciate your work with us and our family. We will use you in any situation where we need an inspector :).
