We were bidding on a "fixer" and so wanted to make sure we had a very thorough home inspection. George was terrific in that he took the time to look at and document everything, and he explained each thing to us as we walked though the house together, and the relative importance of each issue. I would absolutely recommend him to any one who asks.
