We work with many real estate brokers in a cooperative manner, not only to assist clients at large; usually the “Buyer,” but indirectly for the “Seller” too; to create a smooth transition from their offer to their closing. If anyone tells you to use the Inspector of their choosing after you have taken the time to research your own, there shouldn’t be any interference whatsoever. If not, or if anyone insists that you should use one of their “recommended” or “approved” inspector, you should be suspicious of that policy.
Most real estate brokers work hard too, and will encourage a smooth transition within the entire selection process. Keep in mind, the home inspector you’re paying for is working exclusively for your best interest.
I’ve worked with Robert three times now on different properties, and each time, he’s been so helpful and professional. He goes beyond the regular scope to give me additional information and input, which is much appreciated. Don’t worry if he takes a few days to get back to you; he’ll be in touch and do wonderful work!
I purchased. He came and inspected the property promptly, identified the problem areas and tested. He sent copies of the lab tests and explained the results clearly, including the required clean up and removal process. All the the work was completed quickly and cleanly. Re-testing assured the property was clear and safe. The best part of the entire process was Robert and his folks did exactly what they said they would do, when they said they would do it, and were finished on time. No extra charges, no extra time. The work was excellent. I recommend them highly. – Cynthia W.
I was living in a really unsafe house and they did such an incredibly thorough job going through every nook and cranny and documenting every issue with the house. I would’ve had no idea how much there was to fix and how much danger my health was in if it wasn’t for him. He was communicative, kind, and thorough, as was Pancho. Very highly recommend!
