Description

Welcome to Ricker Associates Home & Building Inspections. We are pleased that you have taken the time to review our page. We are an experienced and professional Home Inspection Company that has successfully served our customers for 25 years. We are based on Boston’s North Shore and regularly travel nearly anywhere based on our customers needs. Established by me, Charlie Ricker, I perform very thorough Home Inspections for buyers who want and need to know the true unbiased condition of the property. Then, as an educated buyer you can make decisions about your purchase. Every inspection is completed as if I were buying the property myself and I am squarely in your corner at all times. A quality home inspection performed by an experienced home inspector is one of the most important steps in the home buying process and if done properly it can save you thousands of dollars in some cases. During the inspection I also make sure that you are familiarized with the operating systems of the property, emergency and seasonal shut-offs, and I also offer recommendations on maintenance issues. I service all of Boston's North Shore, Marblehead, Salem, Beverly, Manchester, Etc. All of Cape Ann, Gloucester, Ipswich, all of the Boxford/Topsfield areas up to New Hampshire, and everywhere in between. I also work in The City(s) of Boston, Cambridge, Charlestown, Somerville, Newton, Wellesley, Needham, Concord, Belmont, Brookline, Etc. Essentially from the Cape and Islands out to Worcester, and up into New Hampshire and Maine....

Charlie Ricker, President of Ricker Associates Home & Building Inspections, Llc. recently performed a thorough and complete home inspection on a detached condominium I am purchasing. I could not be happier with his inspection and expertise. He was able to point out a major safety concern that could have resulted in a significant fire. This is actually the second time I have benefited from his expert services. The first time was during an inspection on a single family home over the summer. During that inspection he noted serious concerns which enabled me to withdraw my offer. I was able to avoid being stuck in a home that would have required numerous repairs, time, frustration, anxiety, lost sleep, and money. His reports are detailed, thorough, and informative. He is friendly, honest, and professional. I am a first time home buyer and he put my mind at ease. I highly recommend his services.

Charlie was very professional and took the time to explain everything as he went. I shadowed him the whole time and he was great. After he was finished he gave me a high-level understanding of major issues that would need to be fixed soon and sent the full report within a couple hours. Highly recommended!

Charlie inspected a house we were interested in purchasing. He was very thorough and provided us a 26 page report detailing all aspects of the house.

Charlie was phenomenal. He was incredibly detailed and knowledgable. It was clear from the start that he was in our corner (the potential home buyer) and not the realtors. In fact, when our realtor heard beforehand who we were using, she was panicked that he would ruin the deal because he would find too many "issues" with the house. This was the best news we could have heard. That means he was the...
