What our Customers Say

We stand behind our work and our customers have nothing but good things to say. Here are a few examples:

Sol from Property inspection Pros performed a home inspection in columbia for me. He was prompt, professional, thorough and informative. He pointed out many potential issues with the home that we were purchasing and we were able to negotiate the home at a lower price due to the defects. I highly recommend them for home and mold inspections.read more

Was very impressed with the thorough inspection of the property we are buying. Sol noted many little things we had completely missed as well as several we would never have been aware of , due to being in places out of common view. It was great getting the report as all issues can be resolved before settlement. Definitely worth the money for his expertise as in the end, a money saver.read more

We had over 300 units we had to inspect before a deadline. Sol worked with us every step of the way to ensure the paperwork was processed in time. He even came out a second time to inspect units we weren't able to enter the first time around at no additional charge. Will definitely be using again.read more

Sol was very timely, personable, professional, and responsive to all of my questions and I especially loved his intimate familiarity with Baltimore City architecture. Sol also had a great rapport with my contractor - who showed up toward the end of the inspection in order to price repairs based on the inspection. All in all it was a great experience and I was personally appreciative of his availability on limited notice (as we wanted to complete inspection immediately after the ratification of the contract). I'd highly recommend Sol and Property Inspection Pros 😃read more

Sol was very thorough, timely, and responsive. We have used him twice since the first home we looked at fell through. He walked us through everything that he was doing and seeing and was really helpful for first-time home buyers like us. Would definitely recommend him to all my friends and family.read more

Sol did a fantastic job inspecting the property. He handled the termite, mold, and radon inspections as well as the main structural home inspection. He was very thorough in his report and really cared about doing a good job. He also provided several tips for maintenance around the house that went above and beyond what he needed to do. I highly recommend Sol.read more

Quick turnaround! My original inspector had an emergency, found Sol and was able to book him within the week. He was early to the appointment, but not too early. He was incredibly thorough and honest. The software he uses for his reporting was really helpful in showing the relation between what we saw from he described. It was very easy to follow. When we came up with a request list for the seller, the software auto-created it based on which findings we wanted to include. I highly recommend Sol to anyone looking to inspect a property.read more
