On time and very professional. His report was in-depth and feedback was excellent. I highly recommend his services!Jul 8, 2018Verified
I cannot say enough great things about Darren. He was so easy to work with. Scheduling was a breeze, he walked through the home with us, explained in great detail everything and then quickly provided an extremely detailed report. His price was spot on and my wife and I both feel like we couldn’t have picked a better home inspector for our first home. After we read through the report he let us call him with more questions. If you want the consummate professional, look no further.May 3, 2018Verified
He was very thorough & answered all of our questions. We also appreciate his 12 month re-visit offer.Apr 29, 2018Verified
Darren was fantastic and thorough. Explained everything while doing a walk through what he found with us. Made us feel comfortable with the purchase.Feb 2, 2018Verified
I was very pleased to have Darrin do our inspection, especially as he has been licensed in a previous state which is not a requirement in UT. He arrived early for the job, did a great job reviewing each of the concerns and answering my questions. I was very happily surprised that he used an infrared gun to check for moisture when others usually charge $50-$100 for the service. And to top it all off he did all this during the midst of a personal tragedy. His professionalism is above reproach.Nov 13, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My prices are within the average range for my area, and are based on the square footage of the home. I have a few levels of pricing, depending on your budget. While I strive to be competitively priced, I like to emphasize, that less expensive is NOT always the best choice. Sometimes you really do get what you pay for! For more details on my pricing, and the different levels/types of inspections I provide, go to my website.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I am completely adaptable and "First-time-home-buyer" friendly! I start off by informing the client, what to expect, and how the inspection process works. I also encourage them to write down any questions, or concerns they have, prior to the inspection, so I can make sure to answer them. My relationship does not end with the customer, at the end of the inspection. I emphasize that I am a continuing resource, for any questions they may have in the future (no charge). As well, ALL my inspections include a re-inspection, at anytime within the 12 months following the initial inspection. This is a great resource for those clients that opted for a home warranty, and to find out any items that need to be addressed prior to the expiration of that warranty.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I was formally trained at the Ed Klopfer School in Florida, which requires completing a 120 hours of instructor based training. Current member, training and certifications, by InterNACHI (National Association of Certified Home Inspectors). Experience includes 20+ years in the construction industry, and over 7 years in the home inspection industry. I have completed more than 500 Home Inspections. I am licensed by the state of Florida, which requires passing a NATIONAL INSPECTION EXAM, continuing education, insurance, and fingerprinted background checks (Utah currently does not require any formal training, insurance, or licensing for Home Inspectors).
