Fred was extremely thorough from start to finish. From the first call with providing information about the entire process, to thoroughly reviewing each part and system of the home during the inspection. Reports were thoroughly detailed and Fred didn’t hesitate to explain or further review any items we asked about or that he advised we should look further into. This is a service provider who goes a...

Mr. Freer was professional, and quick to respond to all communications. The inspection itself was thorough, and he made every effort to give clear explanations of his findings at each stage of the inspection. The report itself was filled with more details, pictures of any important line items, and was easy to digest. After the inspection, Mr. Freer has continued to be a valued resource and respond...

Everything from receiving a quote to having Fred inspect the property went very smoothly. He was very quick to respond, and gave us a lot of details up front in his emails, which was great so we knew what type of inspection we were getting and how much any add-on services would be. As first time homebuyers it really took the stress off of us to know we had someone who knew what they were doing ins...

Fred was phenomenal. From our first phone call to schedule the home inspection, he showed superb professionalism and was able to accommodate our schedule. He is thorough, honest, calm, extraordinarily knowledgeable and I especially appreciated that he made himself available for questions via email/phone afterwards. It was clear that Fred approaches each home inspection as if his family member is p...

Mr. Freer made the home inspection process, one that was both foreign and scary to me, so much easier! From the moment we spoke on the phone to schedule the inspection appointment to the follow-up emails after the inspection to ensure I received the inspection report, and to answer any additional questions that I had, I have been beyond impressed with his knowledge, patience, kindness, and profess...

Fred is an expert within a field of experts. His qualifications/certifications are beyond extensive. He is constantly reviewing any changes in the industry and keeping up-to-date on things many didn't even know had changed with codes, etc. When we were initially shopping around for inspectors/quotes, we had another inspector that wasn't going to be able to help us, due to timing issues, ask me who...

Fred is a very thorough home inspector. He took his time to inspect the house and relayed all of the information in a very detailed report. Fred went through the different sections of the home and then recapped his findings to us after each portion. He was also available for follow up phone calls to help interpret the findings in the inspection report. The cost of the inspection is higher than mos...
