I highly recommend John and Doug!
I'm not just a buyer, I am also a Realtor. Over the years I have accompanied many buyers on home inspections. John and Doug are two of the best I have ever met! Their thorough and informative inspection kept me from making a very costly mistake! As a Realtor, I plan on recommending them to my clients and other Realtors in the future. I want my clients to receive the same high level of knowledge and professionalism that I received on the home inspection that they did for me.

Tim O'Leary is a great home inspector. Here are the reasons. As others have noted, he appears to be obsessively early. Don't worry, you can show up whenever you want to. He has all the requisite knowledge, but has a talent for making the issues clear to those of us who don't know as much as he does about building construction. Most important, he is an advocate for your interests and will give you the information you need to proceed with the purchase, should you choose. The report he produces is easily understood, written to facilitate your position in the purchase process, and delivered quickly. I highly recommend Tim O'Leary.
