Frank was such a sweetheart and caring. He is a great person and very knowledgable and gives great advice. Very polite and on time. I had questions, he answered and he was very patient. I needed my hope soon to be condo inspected and i got Franks name off of here and was hesitant to call but i am sooooooo glad i did. I wouldnt recomend anyone else for a home inspection. He was curtious enough to offer any advice after ive moved in and any questions i have about anything he would be willing to help in anyway he can. You wont find that in any one else, this is a true human being who actually cares about his job and the peoples homes he inspects and not to mention the actual people. He puts you at ease, we all know how stressful home buying can be. Frank does a great job putting you at ease. Wonderful human being!!! Thank you frank

We were looking for someone to do a home inspection ASAP because we are trying to close quickly. I checked some reviews online and Thomas had quite a few really good reviews and was rated with 5 stars. I spoke with him Friday afternoon when I found out we were under contract and he was able to do the inspection for us the next morning. He arrived a bit before us, and had already done an outside inspection and inspected the roof and then when we arrived, he went over what he found in great detail. Then we went inside. He was very thorough in every room and didn't skimp on any of the details. He crawled around on the floor, checking under appliances, up in the chimney, and climbing in each of the attic accesses. He was very prompt in getting me the electronic inspection report the next morning. and accurately reported all of his findings. Just because he has a reasonable fee doesn't mean that he is cheap in quality. I am very happy with the decision to hire Mr. Wolf to do our home inspection, and if we were to need another inspection, I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again!!

Could not ask for a better inspector/inspection. Don was very detailed and thorough. I really can not say enough of how impressed we were with his work. He did 2 rather large houses in the same day for us totaling nearly 10 hours. I have already recommended him to many of my friends that are in need of inspection services. I rarely recommend anything to my friends let alone write an online review like this. I wouldn't bother looking elsewhere for another home inspection. If I needed another, I would hire Don in a second.

Dave did my home inspection for a condominium in Hoffman Estates and did a wonderful job. He is very detailed oriented and his report covered everything from going on the roof, to dating the furnace, to checking for mold and moisture, and even checking every outlet to make sure they work properly. Outstanding Job, you cannot go wrong.

Robert did a fantastic job on my house inspection. He went through each and every detail meticulously and called out anything out of the normal in his report. His report was again very detailed covering things which didnt meet the codes/standards, recommendations, problem areas etc. During the house inspection, he took time to explain things in detail which was very helpful for me as a first time home buyer. During the home inspection, there was still a lot of snow on the roof, deck etc. Given his sheer dedication and passion for his work, Robert not only came back for a detailed roof inspection but also came for a follow up visit to inspect if things were fixed properly. Robert was very punctual and was very receptive of my needs. He is very knowledgeable on his subjects as well. He went over and beyond his required work and I feel so glad to have taken his services. I will strongly recommend Robert to all first time home buyers and would personally take his services, when required.

With this being my first home buying experience, I did not know what to expect, but I am very happy that I selected Master Home Inspectors!! I was sold on the length of experience alone, before I even met with the inspector. The home inspection itself, was informative and very thorough. Every process was explained to me patiently, before, and during the walk through inspection of the home. David Mcmasters made me feel very comfortable during the inspection process. My questions were encouraged and welcomed. Each question or concern I had was professionally addressed, and explained in a knowledgeable manner. The information and feedback provided by Mr. Mcmasters was informative and detailed for me to properly understand what was being discussed. Overall service was on time, safe, friendly, and honest, which is extremely important when deciding to invest into a home. I would definitely recommend and refer David Mcmasters with Master Home Inspectors for future business and services. David Mcmasters is the true definition of service with a smile. Thanks again!

BRT, inc is an extremely professional and highly skilled company that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Their attention to detail with home, thermal, and radon inspections is second to none. They offer wonderful customer service and were on time and efficient in their work. They are very thorough and take the time to explain things while they are on the job. I would definately recommend them for their home/business camera installation as well. Their no monthly fee surveillance systems provide me the peace of mind that I need while giving me the convienece of monitoring the cameras from my phone and other smart devices. They are the best in the business!

I'm in the process of buying my first home, and I hired Ed to do the home inspection. The inspection lasted approximately 3 hours. Ed's inspection was thorough, and he was very professional. Ed was comfortable with me watching him and answered questions I had. I would definitely recommend Ed to anyone looking for a property inspector.

Dan was very helpful when I called to setup an inspection and felt that Christi would be the best fit for the job because of her background (architect) and the location of the property. When she showed up she was ready to go and inspected the outside of the property as thoroughly as she did the inside. She took over 2.5hrs to complete the inspection. She answered all my questions and gave me very helpful information. The actual report was so much more than I expected and helped me negotiate a better deal with the sellers. I highly recommend Domicile Consulting for your inspection needs! K. Shorewood, IL

Robert Lozano was hired to do a home inspection. He was very thorough and explained everything To be done within the two hours of inspection beforehand. He was not an alarmest but informed me of a few minor problems with the house. He is an educator as he explained his evaluations of certain areas of future need. I appreciated Robert's calm manner and would highly recommend his services. He made an intimidating experience into an educational and non threatening experience.

Choosing the best home inspector can be difficult. Different inspectors have varying equipment, experience, knowledge, reporting methods, standards, and pricing. I am glad to answer any questions you have to help you choose the right inspector. I write my reports off-site, so that I can give you a proper inspection report. While some inspectors who write the report on-site are competent and knowledgeable, an inspection that depends entirely on the inspector's knowledge base and immediate response to the situation is at best incomplete. I take the time, 7 to 24 hours from the inspection, to pool other resources like the following: - Sharing pics and thoughts with other inspectors. - Consulting with builders/pest control specialists. - Looking up codes. - Investigating appliance models. - Reflecting and utilizing any other resources I feel the situation calls for. I bring an arsenal of testing tools, measuring devices, knowledge, and experience to every inspection. I inspect the following: - Roof - Vents - Flashings - Trim - Gutters - Downspouts - Skylight - Chimney - Roof penetrations - Decks - Stoops - Porches - Walkways - Railings - Eaves - Soffit - Fascia - Grading - Drainage - Basement - Foundation - Crawlspace - Water penetrations - Heating/cooling systems - Main water shut-off valves - Water heater - Plumbing fixture/faucets - Drainage sump pumps with accessible floats - Electrical service line/point of entry - Meter box - Main disconnect - Service amperage - Electrical panels - Breakers - Fuses - Grounding - Bonding - GFCIs - AFCIs - Fireplace damper door and hearth - Insulation - Ventilation - Garage doors - Safety sensors - Openers - And much more! Finally, my home inspections are focused on saving you money, helping you understand the home's needs and bringing you peace of mind. Jason Jeske CPI (Certified Professional Inspector)
