    I wanted to thank you for the thorough and professional inspection you conducted for me. ... and for the "free" helpful hints you gave along the way. It's refreshing to encounter someone who really seems to enjoy their job.

  • Mark,

    Thank you for the prompt email on those reports.
    As a military member who inspects, troubleshoots and performs periodic function tests on mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, let me say, your report was nothing short of fantastic! Completely thorough and from top to bottom, the report gave me great awareness as to the true state of the home. The "Summary" report was particularly useful for things I need to stay aware of or repair in the near future; extremely helpful for me as a new and first-time home owner. The photo additions and explanations were great!

    All in all, exemplary job, man! Any Airman heading to Minot, look for a home... I'm sending them your way.

    Thanks again Mark!

  • Dear Mark,

    This a note to thank you for allowing me to observe your inspection this morning and for answering my questions. I know little about the operation of a house so sharing your knowledge was a great help for me. I was also impressed by the thoroughness of your inspection and the speed and detail with which you prepared your inspection report.

    Thanks again.

    Sincerely,
    Robert S.

  • Mark,

    Thanks for the quick report. I was quite impressed by your thoroughness, findings, and report format. I think is I were to buy a house anywhere in the nation, I'd seriously think about hiring you to do it. The things you found were certainly an eye opener for me, i.e., things you can't really tell about by just looking at real estate add photos. Whether we wind up buying the place or not, your services was worth every penny.

    Best Regards,
    Tom C.
