Colleen, There are many excellent home inspectors, the state offers a list of licensed inspectors, also you may want to check into ASHI as they too have a list. I would hope that you or your office manager are aware of these sites and your requirements to provide such list.

It appears to me that this question is exactly what is under investigation by a sub-committee of the MA Board of Registration of Home Inspectors on internet advertising.
As I understood the issue at the board meeting, the concern is Massachusetts General Law Chapter 112 Section 87YY1/2. There are also restrictions that adversely effect the ethics of the home inspector. Please communicate with your home inspector when providing referrals, especially during a time of sub-committee investigation.

In my area (North Eastern Massachusetts) I like John Ward from the Homestead Report and Paul Maida from Maida Home Inspections.

I tend to like small independent inspectors. You know who is going to show up and they have to stand on their last home inspection.

Tom Skrodski and Joe Bottone are the two inspectors I refer for my buyers.

My first choice is Mark Demers, then Joe Bottone. After that alot of he inspectors have gotten too careful with too many unnecessary repairs..etc.
