We Work for You

Home Inspections are our only business. We are impartial; we only work for you. Your interests are our only interest before, during and after the inspection. Our job is to provide you with a fair, comprehensive, independent evaluation so you can understand more about your important investment.

"Thank you for the service you provided my clients today.  I have been in the real estate business for 30 years and just recently did business with you for the first time.  I am very impressed with your knowledge and the non-alarming and educational approach you use with the client.  I was further impressed when I received a copy of the report within an hour of leaving the inspection.  You will certainly be getting more business from me and my company."
Mark, Clifton Park

What to Expect

We encourage you to join us during the inspection so we can talk about what we see, and so you can ask questions as we inspect the home. You will get insight into maintenance and energy conservation, tailored specifically to your home. In addition, we offer free telephone consultation after the inspection.

"I wanted to write, and let you know that we had an electrician look through the house today. Everything went well, and nothing too unexpected was found. He realized a few minor issues that we can work towards getting fixed, but nothing of consequence. I wanted to thank you for your help through all of this. I know it was a pain to make the changes, but I just wanted to get it looked at. The electrician who did the work, Rob O'Keefe, gave you glowing reviews as well. It seems that you have had prior business. It is nice that my wife and I will now have piece of mind with the work that you both did to get us to this point. I want you to also know that we would recommend you to our friends and family in the future, so hopefully when you hear my name again you can crack at least a little smile."
