Did not hire after getting an estimate three times that of a competing bid. We accepted the competing offer and the surveyor did a thorough and competent job.

From first contact Dominion Surveyors were professional in every respect. Both the telephone and in-person exchanges were first rate. All my questions and concerns before and during the work were promptly addressed. The resulting product (needed for county permit purposes) is clear and complete.

They arrived on the date and time they said they would be here. After completing the survey the surveyor showed me his findings on the ground and indicated that I would receive a Montgomery County approved surveyor's certificate. They were courteous and helpful.

We wanted to attend the survey, but our Realtor insisted it was not possible. We just received the survey map. Had little contact with surveyor.

They said that they would produce a written survey showing trees included in my property and the company would send me the report within one week. Three weeks and several calls later, I still have not received the survey, and I am quite frustrated.

Front corner markers apparently were removed during utility trenching years ago, creating ambiguity about property lines. Based on Angie's List ratings we called Dominion Surveyors. Dominion performed as promised except that they did not call to notify us when they would come to the house, which we requested when we placed the order. We wanted to be able to speak with the surveyor at the time the work was done but he came when we were not at home.

I spoke to Bruce on the phone - he was very courteous - on a Tuesday. Surveyors showed up the following Monday late afternoon. We now have clear boundary demarcations on our property.

Fast forward three years later when we plan on doing some work to our house. County tells us our plat is incomplete as it does not have house on it. Tried contacting this company 3 times in span of one week to get original work updated. No reply. Highly unprofessional. If you can't handle basic administrative tasks like calling people back in a prompt manner, you should not be in business. Also, company never explained why the original work was incomplete. Found another surveyor at a reasonable rate who agreed to do job in quick time. Update 3/2014 It is funny how some people stretch the truth and others flat out lie. As we stated in the original review, the surveyor never even responded to 3 calls. Therefore, we never requested any discount, or as he calls it, 'gratis', as we never spoke to anyone there. If people make mistakes, I can deal with that. If people are liars, I can't. Caveat emptor (buyer beware).

Great work, highest quality, and very pleasant people. Work was top quality and fully worth the price. They were timely and reasonably priced when other surveyors were neither. An excellent transaction with a skilled service provider.

Excellent! I called for a survey to be done. The receptionist mentioned that it would be done within ten business days. The first visit was done within that time frame and the final visit was done within 48 hours after that deadline. I had the formal plat with copies the day after the final visit. The work was high quality and all my questions were answered. I would definitely use them again.

They were willing to answer all of my questions and gave me information that helped me to consider how to hand a complicated situation. They were very prompt in responding to my call and took a lot care in listening to understand my situation and helping me.

Job was done professionally, explained work performed and what to expect next. Provided writeup and drawings in the next few days as promised. Thought the cost was somewhat expensive but after comparisons of other surveyors, the cost was similar to all companies.

The receptionist was extremely helpful in setting up the appointment and providing an estimate. The surveyors arrived on time, were very polite and explained everything they were going to do. After the work was finished, they explained what they did and asked if I had any questions. In all, a very professional transaction.

Dominion Surveyors, Inc. made the entire process super easy. They responded to my online message within hours, providing us with an estimated completion date for the work and a price quote. The survey was delivered ahead of schedule and at the (very reasonable) price we were quoted.

It went spectacularly well. I am pretty sure I received a call back within a hour and they offered to come out virtually the next business day. We then had days of torrential rain (you can't survey in the rain). I think they kept in ocntact with us every day and it seemed to me that they felt worse about the weather than we did (and obviously there is nothing they could do, but when the rain stopped they were here and did the job. They were just great!

We had contacted several surveyors, and found Dominion to be the most reliable and reasonably priced. It did take a while for the project to be done, but the crew was extremely friendly, and even waited for us to return to the house (10-15 minutes) after they had finished to give us a walk through of the property lines. We received the plat both via email and hard copy. We appreciated the email so we could move more quickly with our fence project. We would definitely recommend them.

Recent Review: Bruce Landes Surveyor and his people did a great job. Rachael, in the office was especially helpful. I needed a job rushed for a real estate closing and they had a surveyor come out on a Sunday to help me meet my deadline. Very responsive and professional group.

Recent Review: Borderline was very responsive to my request for a survey. They were able to come within a few days and charged 1/3 of what some other surveyors wanted. They even marked more points along the line than the expensive guys were willing to do. They were very pleasant to deal with and very patiently answered all of my questions. I highly recommend them.

Recent Review: They were very professional and took the extra time to get things right. They had to correct mistakes that had been made by other surveyors in the past and follow up with making sure the job was done correctly. This took extra time but I could see how important this was for future land sales, etc. I have used them over the past 15 years for several surveying jobs.

Recent Review: It went swimmingly well. I placed the survey order on a Tuesday, and had a call with results by Friday. Tom's team discovered that the neighbor had a fence and a significant amount of debris on the property that we were buying, and we had to delay closing two and a half weeks to resolve the issue. While I was at the property looking at the issue, Tom's team was there doing the lot staking, and his team agreed to place some additional stakes to help me resolve the issue. Once the issue was resolved (the fence was removed), Tom's team promptly came out to re-survey and delivered a new plat within 24 hours. Overall, NoVA surveys saved me thousands of dollars and countless headaches. I highly recommend him to all who are looking for a surveyor.

There are more than 50,000 surveying licenses in the United States. This number doesn't include unlicensed Pros.

How do you know which surveyors near you are good and which are bad? Here are some tips:

What do land surveyors near me do?

Licensed professional land surveyors determine where your property ends and a neighbor's abutting lands begin. They can guarantee their work and make land transactions legally binding. 

Buying or selling a home or unimproved property usually requires a land survey.

The highly trained professionals carrying out this dispute-settling, argument-ending, nerve-soothing work are licensed land surveyors.

Several types of surveys are possible:

Boundary — property lines

Location — improvements

ALTA/ASCM — for commercial properties

The completed survey forms part of the title, which is protected by title insurance. The cost of a land survey is usually worth every penny. 

How much does land surveying cost near you?

The national average for title insurance is $463, with a range of costs from $75 to $950, depending on location, terrain (swamps and ravines are harder to survey than pastureland), and complexity of the job. 

What should I think about if I hire a land surveyor near me?

A surveyor will note improvements on the property since the last survey. Using a total station theodolite (TST) — that fancy measuring tool you see on a tripod when land surveyors are at work — licensed, professional land surveyors also measure angles, distances and terrain elevation. Ownership of a total station theodolite is not a qualification for being a licensed land surveyor.

If you cannot find online reviews about a land surveyor near you the state's professional licensing board can be a good place to check. Another source is the National Council for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) which issues land survey licenses. Be certain the surveyor carries insurance. Ask for recent references, and be sure they are familiar with your property's type of terrain.
