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
