General Info
The home buying process is difficult, to say the least, as I am sure that you know by now how confusing it can be at times and how it definitely has its fair share of stressful moments. My job is to insure that you know exactly what you are buying so that you aren't caught in a bad investment where possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars and the next 20-30 years of your life are at stake. It's quite a responsibility, but one that I have successfully taken on more times than I can count.As different inspectors have varyingqualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing; one thing for certain is that a home inspection requires years of training, skill, and lots of work. Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily upon the individual inspector's effort. Should you do me the honor of becoming your home inspector, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort and that you will be completely satisfied with my services or your inspection isFREE. This I pledge to you.

Started great, ended poorly

Hired John to do a short notice inspection. This was against my better judgement because I read a review that said he never returns calls and is not timely on returning report. When I told him about the review he said it was because he was in the hospital. Anyway, he came out and did a thorough inspection. He said he would have the report to me within 24 hours or it would be free (which never happened) and I emphasized how important it was because we were trying to close within that same week. He also stated for me to contact him if I needed a pest inspection report that is required by the VA and he would send me one (I attempted to contact him and never heard back). So, after the inspection it took him almost 5 days to return the inspection report. In the meantime, I tried calling, left voicemails, texted and even emailed him with no returned calls, emails, nothing. I also had to hire another person to come and do the pest inspection because he never delivered as promised. We ended up not closing on time because of him but the sellers were gracious thank goodness. AVOID WASTING YOUR TIME AND MONEY with Home Inspector John, LLC!!!

Overall

Inspector John showed up 30 minutes early to walk the two story roof prior to walking me around the outside and inside of both my garage and home. His attention to detail, depth of knowledge and overall professionalism has to be on par or above anyone else in his profession. His report and feedback was thorough with a fast turn-around (approximately 24 hours). I highly recommend him for home inspections, especially if you want someone who will take the time (3-4 hours) to walk through every detail as well as walk a roof that is higher than one story.

Overall

Took money, never provided inspection report. Was stuck without inspection and no time to do anything about it. Never returned phone calls, texts or emails once he got the money... 100% scam, BEWARE!!!

We had a great overall experience. So glad we attended the inspection as my wife and I learned so much and that made the report just a reminder of what we had already learned. John is a true professional and we were glad that our agent recommended him.
