I would recommend Elite Home Inspections, Jeff Hardesty. Very professional, very thorough, takes lots of pics of anything he finds and puts them all in a nice report and prints them right there at the house. Goes over thoroughly and will help you zone in on important items that need to be repaired and also guide you on maintenance of certain things.

Let them know I referred you..they'll treat you like their baby. :)

Appts are made with wife, Michelle, she runs the office. He and son do all the inspections together as a team. They also do inspections in NC if needed.

number is 1-888-435-2329

Go to, to get a qualified home inspector, ask for experience and testimonials. The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), founded in 1976, is North America's oldest and most respected professional society of home inspectors. ASHI's goals have always been to build customer awareness of the importance of a quality home inspection and enhance the professionalism of home inspectors.

My favorites are

Good Afternoon Tim. Hopefully you've found your home and are now a the inspection phase of the home buying process. If you haven't yet found the home you wish to purchase, you are doing some great legwork in advance. If you are working with a real estate professional, ask what companies they and their other office mates feel are reputable, responsible inspectors. It would be prudent for you to call each inspector, ask them their fee, what their inspection covers, what kind of final report you'll receive and if they have any past clients you could call for references. If you follow those guidelines for any professional you may need in the future, you will have the information needed to make an informed decision about who you feel will be the best for you. I hope this helps. If I can be of any assistance please don't hesitate to call. Good Luck!
