It is so rare to have such professional, thorough, and go-the-second-mile work done these days. Many thanks! Your friend,”

“Gary, The seller had someone tear out the paneling in the basement area on the north wall, and it was in worse shape than I could have imagined. There was obvious deflection of the wall inward, open cracks over 1/4" wide and complete deterioration of most of the wall framing. The entire north wall and possibly the east wall will need to be replaced. The leakage has been going on for quite a few years, and has obviously been an ongoing problem for the owner. Kathy and I cannot thank you enough for helping us avoid what would have been a very large mistake.”

Mike K.

“Thank you Gary. When you pick up the radon test today could you do me a great favor and look at the propane level and let me know what it is? Thanks again for your thoroughness. I hope we can share a cool drink this summer.”

William K.

“Thanks, Gary. We got the radon under control and a water filtration system installed. Everything seems to be okay. Thanks for everything.”

As I mentioned we’re going to take down that section of roofing over the deck, re-do the gutters and maybe move the hot tub out of the porch and onto the patio.

Jeffrey P. H.

“Gary- T hank you for your very prompt report. We will review and advise if we have any questions.”

Bob & Joan A.

“Thanks for your very thorough report, Gary. Now we know what we need to do. I just got back home from Indiana tonight (Sat). I couldn't really view the pages very well on my iPhone so I just forwarded your email and attachments to Bill so we could discuss it over the phone and decide what we wanted to do about the purchase. We decided to let it go forward as it. We're going to replace the septic tank and take care of the other smaller repairs in the spring. It's very reassuring to know there aren't any really major problems with the cabin. Again, thank you so much for doing this so quickly. We really appreciate it, and I'm sure the sellers did too since they wanted to leave for AZ. Enjoy the fall!”

Marsha & Bill G.

“Hello Gary, Debbie and I thank you for your service today. Your professionalism and attention to detail during the property inspection was very much appreciated.

“HI Gary, Had you ever inspected that place before? I sent the e-mail with attachments to Peggy saying too many critical and semi critical items that I'm not going through with this deal. A lady I work with, her mother lives near Eau Claire in a bi level home and had to have walls taken down as to rotten/mildew drywall and major digging up around house to pitch the ground away from house--6 mths of work. There is a better home on Perch Lake that appears to be better for 229,000. Thank You for your quality report and I most likely will be using your service in future. Sincerely,”

“Thanks for the time you spent with me on this inspection. I have worked with many inspectors and find that some are not as thorough or as knowledgeable as you appear to be. Even though I have quite a bit of real estate experience, this type of property is a bit different than what I have been involved with. I appreciate your expertise. The inspection was a good value.”
