What are people saying about us??

J. Rock

I, as a Realtor, love his thoroughness and his ability to explain his reports/findings to my clients in a way that they can fully understand. His responsiveness is the best I've experienced among inspectors and his flexibility to accommodate tight timelines (even in the evening after he's worked all day) speaks volumes about him.

Mike did a great job for my clients, he was timely and professional.  He even went back out to open the door for the plumbers to their inspections.  Great service, I'll def be using him again!

Natalia M. 

I must say I couldn't be happier with my experience. Showed up in a mask for one and as professional and courteous as you would expect anyone to be. Very knowledgeable and happily answered anything that I had questions about. Being in the Realestate business I've used quite a few inspectors and have to say nobody impressed me this much. I'll be a repeat customer for sure!

Amber K, 

Mike was really great, he showed up on time and was very thorough on the inspection of our new home. We would definitely refer him to our friends and family.

I highly recommend Mr. Thompson. He was very thorough during the inspection and answered any questions I had.
