Honestly, all of the reviews below outline why James is so phenomenal. I, however, want to focus on the two things that were most important to me: how thorough he is and also how communicative he is.
We arrived to our new home as first time home buyers and James had already been there for about an hour or so. He stopped what he was doing to introduce himself to us and give a very quick brief of what he’d already found and what he still needed to check. He said he would be quick with the first talk, since we were going to do a complete walk-through after, so he would be much more detailed then. He pointed out a few minor issues to us immediately and then continued on his inspection as we walked around. About 15-20 minutes later, he was done and came and got us for the walk-through (our house is tiny, heh).
As promised, James did a COMPLETE walk-through of everything: inside, outside, backyard, front yard, sidewalk areas, patio areas, the garage, the water line, etc. I’m serious… everything. The walk-through itself took about 40 minutes since we had questions, and he seemed happy to communicate everything to us in detail (see, communicative AND thorough). All in all, he only found some minor issues that we can put in a repair order for, but he said the house was in good condition and congratulated us.
He also sent an extremely detailed report within about 1 business day, inclusive of pictures, possible fixes for things, and detailed descriptions of the issues that there were.
If I ever buy another house or need another inspection, I will absolutely be calling up James. He was everything you want your home inspector to be, and more!
