Client Testimonials

Redfin - reviews from the Redfin real estate site.

I am extremely impressed with the performance and customer service I have received from Ron at 1st Rate Home Inspections. I was very wary of selecting a qualified inspector because, like anyone, I wanted every problem to be found.

Ron's attention to detail and willingness to provide explanation for everything could not have been better. I am very satisfied with the inspection and the report that came shortly after the inspection (which was very thorough). I will recommend using 1st Rate Home Inspections to all of my family and friends, and I will definitely choose Ron again if I need another house inspected in the future. I could not have had a better experience with this home inspector.

I'm extremely pleased with the service that was provided to me by Ron at 1st Rate Home Inspection!!! His reports were very informative & detailed. Every time I had a question or concern he would respond quickly I wouldn't have to wait hours much less days. I called a couple of company's before I came across 1st Rate Home Inspections and their prices were much higher than Ron's. If you want a Home Inspection at a very reasonable price  with full detailed reports and pictures at no additional cost then you want 1st Rate Home Inspections!!!!!!!!!!

Ron - your report is great. Thank you for doing such a professional job on the inspection, and being willing to share your findings so clearly as you went along. I learned a lot.

The items needing priority attention were clear. I have a better chance of spotting future problems with the information you gave me.
I would be happy to recommend you to anyone.

I think you do a great job and handle the "challenges" of any property without scaring off the buyers. I also think you've been very fair with your pricing of inspections, ie. the Waterford in Rossmoor.

Thanks! Betsy Sanders

My wife and I are currently in the process of buying a second home as an investment property. For piece of mind we opted to have the property inspected as a contingency for the sale. We chose 1st Rate Home Inspections Incorporated for two reasons; competative rates coupled with the way in which the business owner (Ron) presented himself during our initial conversation.

I was not disappointed in our choice. The inspection was scheduled immediately. Ron arrived on time and conducted a thorough inspection. I was impressed by his attention to detail. By the end of the inspection I was reassured that this property was structurally sound and in excellent condition.

Ron provided me with a detailed written report which explained in great detail his observations and evaluations of the various components within the house. As noted above his inspection provided me with piece of mind that there were no hidden issues with the property.

I highly recommend Ron and 1st Rate Home Inspections. I will readily use them in the future.

Thanks for the great inspection and all the time you took to explain things.  I'm glad we have guys like you around.

I really want to compliment you on your promptness, service, knowledge, patience (sorry you had to wait so long for our buyer,) presentation and summary, non-alarmist attitude, walk-through, humor, conversation, how quickly you got the report to us and the all-inclusive, but easy to absorb style of report, complete with photos.  It was most impressive that you immediately remembered the buyer's one question later about the damp soil and knew exactly what it was. 
We give you a 13 out of 10 score and will highly recommend you to all!  It is such a relief to finally find "our" home inspector after shopping for the last few years!
