"John was extremely thorough and patient with us. Since we were first time buyers, he took the extra time to walk us through the general maintenance and preventative procedures of all of the systems in our home while answering all of the questions that we had." ~James D. West Bloomfield

"John is the best. He not only provided us valuable insights to the condition of our new home, but his Home Energy Report was an invaluable tool in our final home buying decision. We recommend him to everyone." ~Tammy G. Chesterfield

"As a first time buyer, I had never experienced a home inspection and had many questions...John was great. He took the time to thoroughly answer them all and he demonstrated a knowledge base that I found comforting as I never realized everything that can be learned during a home inspection." ~ Denise A. Ann Arbor

"My husband and I were living in our home for almost five years before we had our (Safety & Maintenance) inspection. Our furnace has what is called an electrostatic filter. Being first time buyers, we had no idea what it was or what to do with it. At one point we actually thought that since it was made of all metal and not cardboard like most other filters that it did not to be touched. We couldn't have been more wrong! As it turns out, you wash it once a month in the dishwasher. Who would have thought?!? Well thanks to John, the furnace is working better than ever and I am not having to dust near as much. That alone was worth the cost of the inspection. ~ Michael M. Flint
