Darren did an awesome job with our home inspection. Would definitely recommend him!Mar 23, 2019Verified
Darren was extremely kind, knowledgeable, and has great attention to detail. He noticed something the home owners had failed to include in their disclosures and really saved me headache down the road. Highly recommended for pre purchase home inspections. Darren was able to give me tons of solid advise on how to maintain different aspects of the home as well. *If you're going to have mold testing done, just make sure to ask for that ahead of time so he doesn't have to make two trips, my bad Darren!Aug 8, 2017VerifiedPPi - A Property Inspection Co.'s reply
No worries Carlos! I have decided to start carrying mold tests and equipment with me, from now on. You've been awesome to work with!
I'm so glad we decided to go with Darren for our inspection. We are first-time buyers and he was friendly, attentive and extremely helpful. As he walked us through the home, he spent extra time with us discussing possible fixes, priority of the problems he found and he really gave us the confidence and knowledge to make educated decisions about our home purchase. I would recommend him for anyone needing an inspection.Aug 21, 2017Verified
I was super impressed with the service I received. PPi was incredibly responsive to my questions, helpful in every way, and made the stress of this whole inspection a breeze. After the initial inspection, he let me know that the gas wasn't turned on at the home and that he would come back for free to make sure everything was good, once it was turned on. I felt that he really cared. I would absolutely contact him again if I needed another inspection. Thank you again!!Sep 21, 2016Verified
Darren was such a pleasure to work with. I received a bid within minutes of posting. We needed a home inspection done within a couple of days and Darren came through for us! His attention to detail is second to none! Every nook and cranny was inspected. He was professional and explained even the smallest finding possible. His price is phenomenal. There were absolutely no hidden fees. Thank you Darren for helping us through this home buying process! Truly a professional!!Mar 19, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My prices are within the average range for my area, and are based on the square footage of the home. I have a few levels of pricing, depending on your budget. While I strive to be competitively priced, I like to emphasize, that less expensive is NOT always the best choice. Sometimes you really do get what you pay for! For more details on my pricing, and the different levels/types of inspections I provide, go to my website.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I am completely adaptable and "First-time-home-buyer" friendly! I start off by informing the client, what to expect, and how the inspection process works. I also encourage them to write down any questions, or concerns they have, prior to the inspection, so I can make sure to answer them. My relationship does not end with the customer, at the end of the inspection. I emphasize that I am a continuing resource, for any questions they may have in the future (no charge). As well, ALL my inspections include a re-inspection, at anytime within the 12 months following the initial inspection. This is a great resource for those clients that opted for a home warranty, and to find out any items that need to be addressed prior to the expiration of that warranty.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I was formally trained at the Ed Klopfer School in Florida, which requires completing a 120 hours of instructor based training. Current member, training and certifications, by InterNACHI (National Association of Certified Home Inspectors). Experience includes 20+ years in the construction industry, and over 7 years in the home inspection industry. I have completed more than 500 Home Inspections. I am licensed by the state of Florida, which requires passing a NATIONAL INSPECTION EXAM, continuing education, insurance, and fingerprinted background checks (Utah currently does not require any formal training, insurance, or licensing for Home Inspectors).
