Joe was super responsive and I was able to have him inspect the short-sale property I am buying on a saturday. He answered all my questions and gave me his honest opinion on things. I liked how personable he was with my husband and I. Thank you for your help Joe!!Sep 11, 2018Verified

Thank you Judine. Great customers like you always make my day!
I have purchased multiple houses in different states over the years. Our experience with this inspection was excellent. Joe was patient, punctual and most important very thorough. He went through the property methodically and carefully. Some of the items he mentioned could only be seen with great experience and meticulousness. Trust Joe with your purchase decision -- you will not go wrong.Jun 4, 2018VerifiedAA-MSA, INC Inspection & Enviromental Testing's reply
