Notes from Past Clients

Dear Dave/Tamaria,
Tracie and I thank you for all your time and efforts that you have given us in helping us to receive our mortgage agreement.  Both of you were extremely generous in your efforts in promptness and effectiveness towards helping us achieve our mortgage.  There will be no hesitation on our

 part to recommend you to future clients.  Again, thank you so very much for your time and efforts.


Dave and Tracie


Dear Dave,
Just wanted to drop you a few words to say thank you for the very professional job regarding the building inspection you performed for me.  After watching you work I had already made up my mind to send your boss a letter commending your performance.  I must say it was a pleasant surprise to find from your business card that you were in fact

the boss.  It was quite obvious that you are very knowledgeable and take pride in your work.

Dear Mr. Muirhead,
I am writing to thank you for the inspection you performed on our new home.  I was VERY please with the job you did for us and the advice you gave me concerning the house and how to avoid any problems that might arise, and fix what problems did exist.  I must say that I had been lead to believe that the house inspection would be nothing short of cold and impersonal, however this was not what

 I experienced at all.  Not only was the inspection very thorough, but you took the time to explain your findings and how they would affect the future life of the home. The most impressive thing to me was the fact that you took the time to investigate the two outlets on the outside of the house, and find  that they were connected to the timers on the stairs, which controlled the heat strip on the roof.  I felt that you went out of your way to find the answer for me, when you really didn't have to.  This is the difference between an adequate job and an outstanding one.
Again, Thank You
Terry Witt


Dear Sir,
I just wanted to say "thank you" again for the great job you did while inspecting the home I'm trying to purchase.  I received the report in the "nick of time" and I can't tell you how much I appreciate the trouble that you (and your secretary!) took to make sure I received the report so quickly.  Your expertise in the inspection of my future home was an experience I would gladly share with anyone considering hiring your services.
Thank you again!
Nancy Cestaro

A PreSale Home Inspection is the Ultimate Gesture of Full Disclosure


 The advantages of having your house inspected before you have a buyer are many:

  • You can have me, a State of Connecticut licensed home inspector (License #87), inspect your home and generate a report that provides you with full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.

  • You can schedule the inspection with me at your convenience.

  • I encourage you to accompany me during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's inspection.

  • My report will reveal problems ahead of time which:

    • might make your home show better.

    • gives you time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.

    • permits you to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.

  • If you correct any items of concern that are found during the inspection, we will return, within 60 days, inspect the correction(s) and issue a revised report reflecting the satisfactory condition of the component(s).

  • Being aware of potential problems will allow you the time to obtain estimates from several contractors instead of relying on a potentially overinflated buyers estimate.

  • My report proves that you have disclosed any uncorrected problems, thereby eliminating them from being used by the buyer for price reduction.

  • My report might alert you to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.

  • My report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to your potential buyers.

  • A seller inspection permits a clean home inspection report to be used as a marketing tool.

  • A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on your part.

  • My report might encourage your buyer to waive the inspection contingency.

Give us a call, and let us help streamline your real estate sale.  And of course we always stand ready to inspect the home you are buying as well.
