OMG! John was the absolute BEST!! He arrived early ("if you're early you're on time, if you're on time, you're late".), he was professional, and so thorough! John addressed every nook and cranny of the home we are looking at purchasing. He told us what would need to be addressed in order of importance, and we had his comprehensive report when we woke up the next morning!! John explained things to us clearly, as he inspected the home, pointed things out to us so we would know what he was referring to, and so there were no "surprises" in the report. John didn't just do the inspection, and send us a report, he made sure we understood what the concerns were and how concerning they were. I can not say enough about John and AA-MSA. We were able to schedule quickly, and the price was reasonable. I will definitely be recommending him to others, and will look to have him inspect any projects we so at our new home!

We hired AA-MSA to conduct a home inspection prior to purchasing a home. We reached out to a few companies but AA-MSA was the most responsive and provided great value. Our home inspector was Rich M. He was punctual and was wearing a polo shirt with the company's name properly showing his affiliation. He also introduced himself and gave us a brief summary of what he will be doing and what we should expect. He was very knowledgeable and personable and we felt safe around him. We moved to another portion of the home so that he could conduct his inspection alone. When he was done with the basement, he called us and showed us issues, level of seriousness, and what to expect if not mitigated, as well as possible solutions. Rich did this with every level of the home, showing us the issues and providing an explanation and solutions. He took his time to ensure that every corner of the home was inspected. He also answered all of our questions. We received the inspection report the following day. The report was very detailed and definitely assisted in our decisions with the home-buying process. The company also reached out after the inspection to check on our experience. Highly recommended.

Details: Buying, selling, or leasing property • 2,001 - 2,500 sq ft • 2 bedrooms • 3 bathrooms • Basement • Condo/Apartment

Guys look no further. End your search right here!!. I spoke with Joe on the phone, this being my first home I had a lot of questions and even bigger concerns. Joe answered every one of my questions with detail. The guy treated me like family from the second he answered my call. Not only did he give me a better quote, they worked around my schedule. I also want to thank Vita ( my guardian angel) AA-MSA are doing an amazing job. My inspector was Rich M. Came 15 mins early to check the property on his own. Professionalism A1. Knowledge A1. I can’t thank AA-MSA enough, I feel like I ow them dinner. Again stop your search here and book now!…. Feel free to thank me later.

My experience with AA-MSA was very positive. From the initial contact with Vita to the home inspection by Rich (very friendly and personable), they were professional and attentive. Rich was early and he introduced himself and explained the steps for the home inspection. Rich knew that he was inspecting an old house -240 years old. Rich's house is also old, over 130 years old. As such, he knew what to expect and assured us of any concerns that my wife or I had. He was methodical and explained every step. My background is in engineering and renovation and everything that Rich pointed out was accurate. I did not feel rushed as he took the time to look at the electric panels, windows, exterior siding, chimney, basement, checking appliances and so much more. All the while, explaining and answering questions from my wife, realtor, and myself. As this is my fourth house, by far, Rich was more experienced and detailed than my other inspectors. I would highly recommend Rich and AA-MSA.

From my first interaction with Vita to my last, every moment of the home inspection process was a pleasure.  Not only was she professional, she was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable.  Joe arrived for the inspection on time and in the pouring rain. Took his time outside and was completely thorough through every part of the house.  He then sat and explained EVERYTHING to us!  Icing on the cake, we received our report in less than 24 hours... on the weekend!  I will recommend everyone I know to AA-MSA. THANK YOU JOE & VITA!! Yes 👏
