Mike really helped us to not only better understand the condition of the condominium unit itself, but the building and common areas as well. We learned a lot during our inspection. Thank you for a great job!

Mike spent a good amount of time with us at the property and did a completely thorough job. I liked the fact that he walked us through the inspection, both inside and out, and pointed out the areas that needed some sort of repairs or replacements. He answered all the questions we had and helped us to make our final decision.
