After accidentally buying a new dryer that still wasn't drying, I hired these gentlemen to clean my dryer vent. Quite possibly no one had ever cleaned the vent in the lifetime of the house because it took EES Services three sets of tools to get the job done. Each time they explained to me what they were going to have to do. I thought this meant there would be additional charges on my bill, but aside from my additional request for a vent cover, the price they quoted was the price I paid even though my vent clearly was not a simple project. Excellent work!

I have ordered numerous home inspections over the past years as I am a real estate investor. I will say that out of the home inspectors that I have used, the team at nextday inspect did a terrific job! I was impressed with their acute attention to detail, noticing even the smallest defects, and their state of the art equipment. The report was rapidly delivered once they finished with the home inspection. I will be using them for my future real estate projects.

Cathy's staging is first class. We were having a real problem selling our home in KPW, and ultimately changed realtors...to the Mary and Cathy Team. Within slightly more than a week the house sold for a substantial amount more than it had been listed at. Cathy's staging played a major role in this result.

R.J. knew exactly how to set the house up for market. He told me what to do and the the house showed better that I ever thought it could. He brought in a good contract with a fair price. The contract work was delivered in a timely fashion. He made himself available to answer questions at all times. He aligns himself with good people to assist the customer through the transaction. That is important. You feel confident every step of the way through the transaction. His photographer takes very good pictures to make the house show very well. The web site is very comprehensive and easy to use. He is always courteous and he presents himself well. He knows the neighborhoods and he knows the business very well. He is a true real estate professional.

Linda was a lifesaver for me! Despite the fact that I was only looking for a rental, Linda gave me her time and attention like I was a buyer. She worked within a very small set of parameters to find me what I needed on a very short timeline. She was responsive, friendly, honest and extremely helpful. I will be using her next year when I am ready to buy! Thank you so much, Linda

    Exceptional full service broker. Conducted outstanding marketing campaign including video, brochures, open houses, and still photography. House was sold with 60 days at near asking price and closed in less than 4 weeks. Francie handled all of the closing details in a very short window with superb results. She is truly a real estate professional. She takes pride in her work, and she helped us every step of the way. She will be my broker on any future real estate transactions, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a full service broker. You will not be disappointed.

    Holly is a terrific person to work with, always upbeat and very positive. She was always there when we had questions. She is an advocate for her clients. As my 5 year old says, Mrs. Holly is the best. We will definitely be using Holly as an agent again. She made the process of selling our home very smooth and easy. She has all the qualities anyone would want in an agent. Thank you Holly!!!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a home inspection?

    A home inspection is a visual inspection performed by a trained professional to determine the condition of a home’s main elements. The inspection usually takes several hours, during which the professional takes multiple photos and notes, tracking information for a final report. After the inspection, the pro will create a printed report, complete with photos and detailed information, summarizing the condition of the house. A home inspection is often used by potential home buyers prior to purchase to determine if there are larger issues (such as dry rot or a faulty foundation) that are not immediately visible to the untrained eye but that would cost a lot of money to resolve. Home inspections are also used by real estate agents and home sellers to address any concerns before putting a home on the market. Longtime homeowners can also schedule a home inspection to get a snapshot of their current home condition and identify any issues that need to be addressed. A home inspection is not a legal document that can be used for divorce or estate settlements, nor can it be used to secure loans or mortgages.

    How do you find a good home inspector?

    A home inspection should tell you the true condition of a home. A competent home inspector closely inspects your home’s structure and foundation, looks for termites and signs of problems like mold, checks the wiring to ensure it’s in good condition, and investigates the HVAC system, among other items. To find a good home inspector, first research whether home inspection is licensed in your area; not all states require licensure.

    If there is no regulatory body that licenses home inspection in your state, there are other ways to make sure you are hiring a trustworthy professional. Carefully look into the person’s reviews and ask for references. Ask if they are committed to continuing education, and whether they are active members in any reputable home inspector organizations. Some organizations that recognize and/or certify home inspectors are the American Society of Home Inspectors, National Association of Certified Home Inspectors, and American Home Inspectors Training. Don’t be shy about asking to see credentials and licensing.

    What does a real estate agent do?

    Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

    • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
    • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
    • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
    • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
    • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
    • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
    • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
    • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
    • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
    • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

    What should be included in a home inspection?

    A complete home inspection involves a visual investigation of all major elements that make up your home. A home inspection is a vital part of buying or selling a home to ensure you’re not accidentally buying a termite-infested home or one with major structural defects. Paying for an inspection before purchasing a home can save you a lot of money in the long run. The national average home inspection cost is $310, with prices ranging higher or lower based on your location and the square footage of your home. After performing a walk-through inspection, the pro should provide you a printed report — complete with photos and recommendations — detailing what’s in good condition, what would benefit from minor repairs, and what needs immediate attention. Home inspection pros know how to spot trouble areas, but they’re not licensed contractors, electricians or plumbers, so they may suggest you hire a licensed pro to address specific problems. Here are the main components that a home inspection covers:

    • Home structure
      • Foundation, grading and drainage, roof covering, roof structure, interior and exterior attic walls, ceilings and floors, interior and exterior doors, windows, stairways, fireplace and chimney, porches, balconies, decks, attached carports, and crawl space.
    • Electrical
      • HVAC system, heating equipment, cooling equipment, ductwork and vents, fixtures and switches, branch circuits, receptacles, service entrance and panels.
    • Plumbing
      • Water heater and equipment, drains, waste systems, vents, and plumbing fixtures.
    • Appliances
      • Garage door openers, garbage disposal, dishwasher, exhaust range, range hood, bathroom exhaust fans, cooktop, oven and microwave.

    What should you look for in a real estate agent?

    When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

    Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
