Reporting clearly and thoroughly: An informative walk-through is one thing, but what if your attorney can't make sense of a hand-written checklist? Speaker of the House reports is neatly presented, with issues detailed in a narrative fashion. And, they always include a concise summary of major concerns. Reports are emailed same day or next morning.
Making sense of it all: Are you new to the type of home you're purchasing? Whether you're new to home ownership or new to the area, Mike helps put the information into perspective, so you know what's expected for the type of building you're buying. He helps you prioritize repairs and offers recommendations for addressing defects. Read more
Mike is the real deal. Friendly, funny, knowledgeable, and thorough. My wife and I are/were house buying neophytes until a few days ago when we closed on our first house. We booked Mike for the initial inspection and also for a secondary inspection at the final walk-through. He knows Chicago building code like the back of his hand, and he takes the time to explain and educate you on anything and everything that you may or may not understand. Even the smallest of details, he takes the time to explain the short-term and long-term implications of the issue/repair/feature/etc... As long as he is available, I will book Mike for every home inspection I ever do in Chicago for the rest of my life.Original recommendation
Mike is a true pro- he's VERY thorough. You will know exactly what issues you'll be looking at when you purchase a new (or old) home. We hired Mike to inspect our 70 year old home before we bought. He was extremely honest, and we know what issues will pop up as time goes on. Very highly recommend.Original recommendation
Mike and Ginger were extremely good at what they do. I feel confident that the house I'm buying has been gone over with a fine tooth comb AND I was totally entertained by them!!!! Good job!Original recommendation
