Hiring Curtis Moore was the best decision I could have made regarding my search quest. I researched many professional, experienced Private Investigators, both online and locally, and chose Curtis as the best possible option from the 23 contenders. Now that I've experienced: his superior work ethic, his valuable insight in discerning my needs, his thoughtful follow-up call the day after I'd processed his investigation results and his incredibly prompt response-I have but one conclusion. *Curtis Moore walks on water.* This is your choice, People. It is impossible that so many glowing reviews from his clients can't lead you to desiring the same peace of mind and spirit which he will offer you. I'm incredibly grateful to have crossed paths with him via this site. Believing for the best for all who enlist his services as well. Thank you so much, Curtis. You rock!

Curtis is the most honest person I've ever met. Once he got the details of the project, he called me and offered me free (FREE) advice. He said that I don't need to pay anybody and explained me in detail the steps to be taken. He also declined my offering to pay him! If you need a private investigator, hire him. Without doubt. He is on your side and will make everything possible to help you. I can't thank him enough!

This Private investigator definitely has tons of experience, and he was very prompt and professional. I will only like to do business with him, he is very trust worthy and straight to the point. It was a relief to me that I found someone who had so much knowledge, and got straight to business, and helped.

When I first started my search for a private investigator it was overwhelming to say the least. I needed someone to find out the relation between a few people and when Ashley reached out I of course was skeptic. But BOY am I glad I hired her. She only charged me $75, and had a 24 hour turn around. She was very professional and timely, and not to mention took the time to hear out the reason as to why I needed this information and took me seriously. She knew and understood how important this was, which I appreciate. If I ever need any kind of service like this again, I would for sure hire her. I’m a heartbeat.

I had a response to my posting in less than ten minutes. After a brief chat and an agreement was reached, I signed pretty straightforward paperwork after I returned from the gym (the only delay in the process and it was on me). Ashley promised me the information within 24 hours and sure enough, she delivered the information about 4.5 hours later. I had a friend who was a private investigator for a large local firm and he said he would have charged $300 to do the same thing that I paid about a sixth for. One cannot beat that.

I thought I filled this out before Thumbtack. Stop losing my reviews. Anyways Eagle Eyes, Andre is a total professional. I had clients who I knew stole my money and I needed his help. He was up before 6 am getting video of them and doing comprehensive reports and his rates are very good. Yes I will and am using him again. Thanks thumbtack for having this site. It really helped me find a great Private Investigor when I needed one quick. I definitely give Andre 5 stars.

Eagle Eye Investigations services are first rate. Their investigators are well prepared and professional. I really appreciate Andre H. assistance as he was able to acquire valuable evidence necessary for an upcoming court case. He was also able to successfully locate and process serve someone that had been avoiding being served for months. I recommend Eagle Eye Investigations without any reservations.

PROFESSIONALS TO THE MAX!!!! Bill not only gave me the confidence that he could execute this mission without any problems, but he also gave my client the information he was looking for. The client was more than happy for all bill did. As an Investigator and a business owner, I highly recommend Bill and Coast Investigations to anyone. They are true professionals and that you don't find everywhere. Thanks Roger

I was very pleased with the service of private server that William Robb provided for me. He said he would be able to complete it with one try and he did just that. He chose the right time of the day on a holiday weekend and he had it planned so well and I do not think he could have planned it any better. Ricardo

This company and its owner and founder, Dana Ceasar, are amazing! I previously hired an investigator who was unable to serve the defendant in my case for well over six months. I emailed this company, and her professionalism, style, tone, and understanding were all I needed to hear to know this company was the one! BUT, that's not even the icing on the cake! They found and served this person in LESS than 24 hours! I am a lawyer myself, and I know what it takes to get something done well, right, and thoroughly! Dana and her company have the IT factor. Also very important to know about her company is she doesn't try to sell you a bunch of what you don't need like a lot of the other investigation and security services do. Yes, I keep saying she because she deals with you personally! And then she sends her people out for you! She goes right for the facts; she collects from you what she needs; and she moves in with focus and diligence. By the time I got home three hours later, the work was DONE! I sat down with friends and had a drink, refreshed and relaxed! Now, I hope you never have to go after someone, but if you do, Ceasar Investigations and Security Services, LLC is your woman, your company, your GLADIATOR!

I have run into nothing BUT roadblocks trying to get this issue resolved. I decided to file a claim and paid for sheriff service. They were unsuccessful. This was over a 2-week period. I decided to try a process server. I found Dana online. I was hesistant at first, but when I made an initial call to get information about Ceasar ISS services the answering service was very polite and helpful, which is a PLUS for me. When I spoke with Dana it was a DONE DEAL. Dana was very professional. Each time I had to communicate with questions she responded. Admittedly I did not think Dana would be able to serve this person, but I thought I would try -- nothing to lose. WRONG. I gave Dana the papers on FRIDAY and they were served on MONDAY. Needless to say Dana's telephone number is in my CONTACTS list permanently.

Job involved locating 2 former tenants in MD who owe past due rents over $10,000 Unlike any other private investigator or process server I have worked with over the past year, Dana took initiative using the facts I had from the rental application and background info I had accumulated. She found one of my tenants quickly and judging by the interaction and results thus far, I am very happy with Dana knowing that she cares about my issues and won't back down even though the job may not be easy. Her motivation and initiative is refreshing and very much appreciated. I highly recommend her and intend to use her for all future jobs.

I was more than happy with the work they did for me and the time period with which they completed the work. Both the administrative contacts and investigators made sure I was comfortable with the process and our goals. I recommend them to anyone for investigative work. I rated them a four based on the fact that they were unclear about their charges.
