Mark was very thorough and knowledgeable. He explained everything verbally the day of the inspection and in his written report which included pictures. He answered any questions we had and helped us understand our options. We feel confident in the house we chose knowing that Mark looked at every detail for us. ”

Agent, Keller Williams Realty

“We met at the property and Mark was detailed and thorough in his inspection, answering our questions and provided a detailed report with clear pictures. Then, he called the next day after we had time to review the report to see if we had any questions, we did, he answered them, and made sure we knew that our understanding everything is part of his job. Other inspectors we have worked with haven't done that and I loved it”

Mark was very professional, quick to respond, and communicated to us during the inspection even though we were out of town. He was great to work with!
