home inspection

Allen was very helpful both in terms of making himself available to meet our short and often unexpected timelines and in terms scope and coverage of work. Allen offered many options and insightful solutions and was strong in detecting work that needed to be done and on what priority resolution would be required. We have used Allen before and were pleased each time. Given all the craziness in the real estate market it was good to get Allen's level of commitment and support to help us make key decisions.

Home inspection

Allen was referred to me for a home inspection on my home (that I was selling), and the entire experience was excellent.

Allen and his colleague arrived on time, discussed a plan (top floors first), and kept me informed of their progress and if they encountered any major issue.

They worked quickly, professionally and educated me on any remediation steps.

At the end, the home inspection report was delivered to me within 24 hours with descriptions, photographs, and comments.

I would recommend Allen to anyone who is looking to get a home inspection report done.

Thank you Allen

Home Inspection Walk Through

We had Allen walk us through the home inspection on a house we recently purchased, as first time buyers we had a lot of questions for him! He arrived promptly and explained how all of the major systems for the house work together, provided answers for everything we asked, and pointed out the other things we should know. He even helped me with disconnecting the old dishwasher so I can get an upgrade installed. Overall a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anybody.

Allen was very through and informative. He took the time to explain to us what issues were cosmetic and what he knew to be critical issues needing immediate professional attention. He answered all our questions and sent his report within the day leaving us with confidence in the purchase of our new home.

We highly recommend Allen!!

I worked with Allen to complete an inspection at a property I was interested in purchasing. He was extremely thorough and knowledgeable during all the inspection activities. He gave a great summary post inspection and talked me through all the details including outlining important areas to take note of for future repairs.

I was extremely satisfied with Allen’s total service and I would use him again and recommend him to my friends and family.

Allen gave us a home inspection after we purchased our home when we had some concerns with the original one the seller had done. He was very thorough, friendly and honest giving us some peace of mind. Would highly recommend.

Highly professional home inspection. Allen and his team attended early and clearly explained the process. They reviewed the property thoroughly, provided a helpful report, and answered all of our questions. I feel much more prepared moving forward thanks to his comments and support. I would strongly recommend his services if you are looking to purchase a home.

I highly recommend Allen!

Allen is an amazing home inspector who I highly recommend. As a real estate agent it's important to me that I can trust the professionals who work with my clients. I recommend Allen to all of my clients and use him for all of my listings. Allen is very professional and his knowledge of homes is second to none. He always takes the time to explain the various systems, point out any issues, suggest ways to fix and answer any questions my clients and I have. He is friendly, polite and always on time. I can't say enough good things about Allen and I would give him 20 stars if I could!
