Brent just saved my butt from buying a house that could have potentially cost me thousands in repairs in the very new future -- money I just don't have. There's a reason this guy has 10 out of 10 ratings -- he's just that good. He spent about an hour alone on three rooms on the ground floor of this three floor townhome I was looking at. During that time he found: a crack in the foundation that was leaking, black mold under the stairway and a plumbing leak from the first floor bathroom. The real estate agent was a bit flabbergasted because she had had her own inspector through the townhome only a year or so earlier and her inspector had missed these things. Brent has a very fine eye for detail and will spot things you will likely miss with an untrained eye. He was extremely patient with an overprotective father who had a million questions and dealt with the entire inspection with the best sense of humour I've come across in a long time. He is genuinely brilliant at his job and gives you a manual you can take home to review what he found. He also provides you with a synopsis and photos of the house he inspected. But what struck me most about him is that he genuinely wants to see you get a house that's in good shape -- he wants the best for you. And that's pretty rare to find. When I do find my next house, and the search begins again (ugh), you know who I will be calling. (You've been warned Brent).

Ohhh Peg...you know me, my specialty is killing peoples dream homes and handling overprotective fathers! ... Ha! Hardly, your father was a true gentleman! Actually, that was a very nice home, it's just too bad it's not going to be for you. I would never tell you to buy or not to buy the home, my job is to tell you about the home. Unfortunately in this case mold was definitely the issue. That's too bad. In regards to the other home inspector, I don't know what to say, in fairness, I wasn't there a year ago to see what he/she was looking at. However, you're wise to get an inspection when buying a home. Thanks so much for the feedback Peg! As well, thank you for choosing Classic Home Inspections! See you soon!
