Home inspection

Allen was referred to me for a home inspection on my home (that I was selling), and the entire experience was excellent.

Allen and his colleague arrived on time, discussed a plan (top floors first), and kept me informed of their progress and if they encountered any major issue.

They worked quickly, professionally and educated me on any remediation steps.

At the end, the home inspection report was delivered to me within 24 hours with descriptions, photographs, and comments.

I would recommend Allen to anyone who is looking to get a home inspection report done.

Thank you Allen

Home Inspection Walk Through

We had Allen walk us through the home inspection on a house we recently purchased, as first time buyers we had a lot of questions for him! He arrived promptly and explained how all of the major systems for the house work together, provided answers for everything we asked, and pointed out the other things we should know. He even helped me with disconnecting the old dishwasher so I can get an upgrade installed. Overall a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anybody.

Home inspection

Allen was very through and informative. He took the time to explain to us what issues were cosmetic and what he knew to be critical issues needing immediate professional attention. He answered all our questions and sent his report within the day leaving us with confidence in the purchase of our new home.

We highly recommend Allen!!

I worked with Allen to complete an inspection at a property I was interested in purchasing. He was extremely thorough and knowledgeable during all the inspection activities. He gave a great summary post inspection and talked me through all the details including outlining important areas to take note of for future repairs.

I was extremely satisfied with Allen’s total service and I would use him again and recommend him to my friends and family.

Home Inspection

Allen gave us a home inspection after we purchased our home when we had some concerns with the original one the seller had done. He was very thorough, friendly and honest giving us some peace of mind. Would highly recommend.

Home Inspection

Highly professional home inspection. Allen and his team attended early and clearly explained the process. They reviewed the property thoroughly, provided a helpful report, and answered all of our questions. I feel much more prepared moving forward thanks to his comments and support. I would strongly recommend his services if you are looking to purchase a home.

Home Inspection

Allen was referred by our realtor. Allen was very professional, extremely knowledgeable and very personable. He took the time to answer all of my questions and at the end of the appointment provided me with a detailed account of all his findings.

I highly recommend Allen!

Allen is an amazing home inspector who I highly recommend. As a real estate agent it's important to me that I can trust the professionals who work with my clients. I recommend Allen to all of my clients and use him for all of my listings. Allen is very professional and his knowledge of homes is second to none. He always takes the time to explain the various systems, point out any issues, suggest ways to fix and answer any questions my clients and I have. He is friendly, polite and always on time. I can't say enough good things about Allen and I would give him 20 stars if I could!

Real Estate Home Inspection

Allen is absolutely amazing. I have worked with many home inspectors in the past, and after using Allen's service I wouldn't consider any one else. He is extremely thorough, concise and professional with each inspection, ensuring that the job is done, and well beyond regular standards. He is very patient and will explain the details of the home and things to caution in the past, present and future.

I highly recommend Allen for home inspections before or after putting your house onto the market if you want to protect your equity as best as possible!

Definitely Exceeds Expectations

Allen was professional, detail-oriented, and efficient. He kept me in the loop as the inspection progressed then carefully walked me through every issue they found with the house - which, for a 100-year-old house in Toronto, is a long list. I needed an inspection done on an extremely tight timeline (with add-ons services too), and Allen not only booked me for a date very soon after I called him, but even went out of his way to deliver results AHEAD of schedule. I'm very pleased with his services and have no doubt that his work is worth every dollar.
