Thorough and honest surveying!
I know surveying is no longer a requirement in home buying, but we wanted surveys done on our house, as well as our daughters, for our own use. John Massey came out and did both properties for us. He spent 5 hours at each house on 2 different days and thoroughly marked the corners and lot lines. He also went to the DeKalb Co courthouse prior to coming out to research both properties. I was so impressed because at one house he had to spend hours literally digging around for a 70 year old property line marker that apparently is now in a tree. He spent hours at the other house cutting through bamboo, trudging over a creek, through barbed wire, etc. to find the property lines. The price was extremely reasonable, and although we did not want a formal report, we could have had him do one for us. I would highly recommend John Massey. He is a very thorough and honest surveyor.
