The inspection exceeded our expectations as we assumed it was only a report and we did not expect to have so much time for questions and instructions! Really great experience overall.

I very much liked the clean communication and that it did not feel like Joel rushed though the whole inspection giving us a very detailed perspective of what we could be getting into.
