Introduction: I am a licensed inspector, a licensed INSTRUCTOR in the state of Illinois on Home Inspection topics, and one of only 7 supervisor instructors for the state of Illinois...for an international inspection association. We service clients who want thorough inspections for their large investment. Warning: Do not go for cheapest! Article warning May 18, 2018 said: "...an investigation by Checkbook Magazine found the people you hire to catch flaws may not spot or even look for clear signs of trouble." (See full article link in my profile.) I look for potential problems that may not surface for years. Five years down the line, our clients are happy they went for thoroughness instead of cheap. I am a trained certified energy auditor and a thermal imager to find SOME issues hidden behind walls. . Some reports are highly confusing, with no pictures. My reports are so user friendly that one of my clients told me that after reading my report, she knew her house better than she knew some of her friends! I have been in the construction field for over 20 years. When I decided to be a home inspector, I enjoyed the privilege of helping new homeowners to learn about their prospective new home. They come away much more informed about the value of the buy, and also how to maintain their home with information they would never have known. All of my clients thank me for helping them out on their buy, ability to renegotiate fix and repair or price, and increasing their knowledge about homes in general. I enjoy helping.

The report sent was 100 pages detailed everything. The house on first glance excellent but inspection showed a couple issues we didn’t see. Would recommend GS&JT services.

We just bought a condo in Chicago located in Streeterville and I contacted Leon immediately after the current owners accepted our offer. He’s very responsive and easy to work with. He provided a quote and answered my questions the same day (Saturday). The inspection was scheduled on a Wednesday morning and the report came out great! It is around 50 pages, is very detailed and included clear pictures of everything, including the water, appliances and common areas. He was able able to point out an electrical hazard that I will need to repair prior to moving in but other than that, it is a fairly well maintained unit and I felt confident about that after Leon’s Inspection.

Details: Buying, selling, or leasing property • 1,001 - 1,500 sq ft • 2 bedrooms • 2 bathrooms • Home has none of the above • Condo/Apartment

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We price to do a thorough job. We price reasonable but not too low to skimp on a quality job. We are known among many agents as being the most thorough inspector they know. Many have told us so. We discount thru agents who refer us.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We outline what we will inspect. We give customers choice to be there or not, depending on their work schedule. They don't need to take off work unless they want to. We supply thorough report complete with pictures of all issues found. It's our aim for customers to feel comfortable with their decision to purchase.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Yes, continuing education is required in the inspector's association I belong to. This keeps us abreast of the latest industry updates. We have added training for the extra benefit of thermal imaging for our customers. I am a licensed continuing education instructor on home inspection topics.
