I'm very pleased with the Steve's service, he voice recorded and took photos of the issues of the home that were fire and electrical issues and future problems in the house.

Steve was organized but took time to examine all aspects of the house and pool. Very concise verbal summary of the repair issues at conclusion of inspection. Written report was clear and detailed as to repairs needed or in one instance for further investigation by specialized contractor. Highly recommend.
