~ RP & LP

"Thank you for your time on Friday and your thorough approach to the job. You were friendly, knowledgeable, and walked us through the entire house systematically so we could easily understand everything you had found during the course of your inspection.

We appreciate your services and hard work and won't hesitate to recommend you in the future."

~ SS & KL

"Thanks so much for everything today. You were awesome and we really appreciated everything.

The builder, was pretty receptive to everything we brought up, upon your recommendation.

Thanks for the follow up email, and thanks again for everything today!"

~ DB & DB

"I would like to thank you for sending me the information and photos on termites. I have decided to walk away from this property based on the inspection results. ... and would not hesitate to use Coastal Inspection Services again in the future."


Buying a new home can be very stressful, especially when considering an older home with potential for unforeseen problems. Brad put our minds completely at ease with his reassuring, calm and competent manner. He has a remarkable ability to explain potentially complicated building matters in a straightforward, understandable way. He took a great deal of time to personally walk us through his findings and he followed up quickly with a comprehensive written report. Brad is a very personable professional. We highly recommend him.

~ BC & MC

"You do very nice work and I will be sure to pass that along. I have now had 3 separate house inspections in 10 years and this is by far the most thorough and comprehensive."

~ L.A.

"I was so impressed with your work and your report. I ended up buying the house but got the sellers to drop the price a few thousand dollars to compensate me for some of the repairs to be done immediately. The owner is a qualified electrician so he has agreed to fix the few electrical issues....

So thank you for such thorough work and for explaining everything to me as well as you did. I especially appreciate how you fit us in on the Monday so that I could be there and see for myself what I'm getting into. This was my first real estate purchase as a single person and I felt like you were working for me, in my best interests. I will strongly recommend you in the real estate world. Thanks Brad - money well spent!"

~ TP

"We would like to thank you for all the invaluable information gained during your very thorough inspection of our potential house purchase - excellent job. Your professionalism and knowledge really helped us to understand the nuances of the property, and your patience in explaining items of concern, in layman's terms, certainly helped us understand potential problems and their related costs."

"You really went above and beyond, not only in the extra time you spent to ensure we had all the facts, but the evening you devoted to ensuring we received your full report by our next day deadline."

"We were very impressed with your excellent service, your attention to detail, and your thorough and complete report."

"Definitely we would have no hesitation in recommending your company to potential home purchasers."

"Please feel free to add this to the many testimonials already on your website."

"We wish you all the best."


"We just wanted to pass along how incredibly impressed we were with your inspection. The time and effort that you put in, not to mention how thorough you were, really gave us a comfortable feeling. Thank-you so much and we will highly recommend you in the future. Personality plus!"


"Coastal Inspections highlighted countless defects in the house I wanted to buy.
The end result was that I withdrew my offer saving myself many thousands of dollars as well endless heartache.
Excellent inspection and Brad's professionalism showed throughout the process.
Nothing escaped his attention. One very satisfied customer here !!!."

~ PM

"If you want attention to detail, a thorough walkthrough, and a very reasonable price, then look no further. Brad from Coastal Inspection Services Inc. is all that and more. If you compare our home inspection on our last purchase, it is night and day. He is worth every reasonable penny that he charges. If it wasn't for Brad we would have purchased our new home not knowing there was an area of major concern. We added a term to our contract so that we are covered for something that could cost us up to $13,000 to fix."

"Thank you again in helping us make our purchase with absolute confidence."


"Thank you for the excellent work you did on our behalf. You were a pleasure to work with and exceeded our expectations. We found the report clear, professional and enlightening. We have taken the advice to have an electrical inspection and are awaiting the report. Thanks again. We will refer you to others and engage you again if we buy another property."


<Post Home Inspection Follow-up> "The electrical inspection went well. It will cost about $1,500.00 to take care of the immediate electrical problems and the seller has agreed to acknowledge that, so it was definitely worth having the inspection done."


"Thank you for this <final home inspection report> Brad. This is the most thorough and complete inspection report I have seen. Excellent job. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for an inspection. there is no comparison between this one and the one we had done last month. All the best to you and if we ever need an inspection again we will contact you."


<Post Home Inspection Follow-up> "You're welcome Brad and we were watching Holmes on Homes last night and thanking our lucky stars that I found you on the web. You are in his league (I hope that is a compliment)" :)


"Hi Brad, I wanted you to know that based on the good work you did and a subsequent walk through, I decided not to lift my "subject to" and have let the property go. I am happy with my decision because I believe that the issues identified are reflective of a bigger issue. Thanks again for all your hard work and time, your good efforts helped me make a difficult decision, but one I am content with and one that was the right one for me!"

~ CH

“The home inspection process we had with Brad at Coastal Home Inspections was really worthwhile. The information we received does help us to know major and minor problems of the house that we should be aware of before purchasing. It's also the key for us to negotiate on the new price and terms with the seller. We highly recommend the home inspection with Coastal Home Inspections to family, friends and everyone before buying their new homes.”


"We want to thank you for your very detailed inspection and the detailed report which you provided. We visited the house yesterday, with a local tradesman, with a copy of your report in hand. He will attend to the major issues which you identified and the conversion of the putting green into a media room. He was extremely impressed with your work and we are sure will help spread the word about your work, as will we."

"Thank you again. We are very impressed with the manner in which you conduct your business."


"I just wanted to thank-you again for all your work and the time you put into your recent inspection. Your professionalism, attention to detail, follow-up, and formal presentation was second to none. I really do appreciate your work on this one, it meant the most to me and my family."

"I will definitely hire you again and, given an opportunity, will certainly recommend you where possible."

~ KH

"Just a quick note thanking you for your in depth inspection of my daughters future home. The information that you have sent to her is invaluable and the time and effort that you spent on the inspection is well appreciated. I have had inspectors in the past and have always felt like I shouldn't have hired them. In this case, your thorough inspection was money well spent. We will be definitely recommending you to anyone that needs a home inspector."

"Thanking you again"

~ TS Family

"Hi Brad, thanks for the report … Again, thanks for your thorough investigation of our new house."

"It was great to meet you today. Thanks so much for spending so much time going through the house with us today, I know we went far over our allotted 45 minutes for the inspection walk-through, however it was much appreciated. Buying your first home is very scary, but it's really nice to know that you have inspected the house as if you were buying it yourself." :)

I am sure it will increase business for you and I will definitely recommend your company, as will our Realtor."

Thank you for taking the extra time to inspect the roof vent leak, it was a relief to be able to set my mind at rest as to the extent of the leak so far.

I will be recommending you to all my friends and colleagues for the excellent service and informative report and conversation you provided!"
