What our clients have to say about Coastal Inspection Services Inc - Home Inspection Testimonials

"Thank you for your excellent service. You helped to make this purchase a pleasant experience. I have printed the report and will be reviewing it shortly. I appreciate your willingness to answer any questions I may have. Again, thanks." ~ SB

"We received the inspection report in good order. The time onsite with you and the inspection report was very helpful in understanding the maintenance and repairs needed in the home and in the final negotiations on the home sale.

Thanks for being so prompt with this. Much appreciated." ~ RV & K

"It has been a true pleasure meeting Brad O'Connor. He did an excellent job inspecting the property and producing a report that went a long way to helping us make an informed decision. He met us on site, was friendly, approachable and extremely knowledgeable. He was thorough in his examination and patient in his explanations. We wouldn't hesitate to engage his services again and to recommend him to anyone." ~ JD & WO

"We would like to thank you for your professionalism and expertise in the inspection of the house we have now purchased. Coupled with your humour, you have a Midas touch! We expressed our appreciation of your work to (seller) and forwarded your summary to him. He is now won over, and he said that when he buys his next home he will be calling you. We will be telling our friends who are in the property investment business.

Again, thank you for an excellent job." ~ PYN & AB

"I have just been going over your report and I am very glad that I was able to go through the house with you. Lessens the shock factor of the report completely and gives me a much better visual as to where everything is located. It's been a pleasure dealing with you, and if/when we have friends and family moving over to the Island I will definitely be pointing them in your direction for a Home Inspector. Thanks so much." ~ PF

"I have been meaning to do this for a couple weeks now, but I just wanted to say Thank You so much for the work you did for us over the past two years. I cannot tell you how much it meant to us to have someone on our side through the whole process. During our three home inspections you performed for us, I never felt intimidated from lack of knowledge as you explained everything to us in great detail. You were a true professional and your attention to detail was evident through your extensive reports. We are incredibly happy with the purchase we made and I would not hesitate to recommend your services to friends and family, (I actually saw an ad posted on UsedVictoria asking if anyone knew a home inspector and I sent them your info!)

I hope you realize that what you do positively contributes to people's lives directly; we would not be in this house without your expertise. I actually took the report you made for <house address> and made a list of items I need to do to the house based on your recommendations.

Thank you again so very much, I hope our paths cross in the future." ~ CT & KA

"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

The only feedback I have is positive. I was really pleased with everything from your professional and friendly manner to the thoroughness of the inspection. ~ MJ

I definitely appreciated your knowledge, attention to detail, and professionalism you provided during the inspection. It is my impression that you thoroughly covered all areas of concern. I would highly recommend you to anyone needing home inspection services. Thank you! ~ HK

"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 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!"

"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

"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 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." ~ CL/LL

<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)" :) ~CL/LL

"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." ~ JM/MB

<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." ~ JM/MB

"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 difference between making an informed decision and making a WELL informed decision: being provided with honest, diligent, thorough, and trustworthy facts. Our home inspection with Brad was one we are extremely grateful for. Brad's professionalism saved us potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars of headache. The money invested with Brad was very well spent. We will be recommending you to everyone we know.

Thanks again, Brad." ~ SJ/BJ

"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." ~ GM/PM

"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." ~ LA

"Thank you so much. For all your hard work on the weekend. Both the real estate agent and my family said what a wonderful person you were to work with and how highly they would recommend you to anyone looking for a building inspector."

"Thank you again." ~ DH/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.” ~ BC/BC

"Thank you for your professionalism and your prompt timing on the home inspection. I appreciate you taking the time on a Saturday to do this for us." ~ D.F.

Your professionalism, attention to detail and your ability to explain the information in a straightforward way are second to none.

I will be able to use your report as the basis for my home maintenance which will be so very helpful to me as a new home owner. 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!" ~ JR

"Our Realtor also was impressed. He found you to be very polite and helpful. I found your name in the yellow pages. I had called other companies and they didn't respond to my voice messages. I was pleased when you answered your phone so quickly. Best of luck with your new website. I am sure it will increase business for you and I will definitely recommend your company, as will our Realtor." ~ DF

~ BG & MS

"Thanks Brad, we received the report. Again, we would like to say thank you for accommodating our short notice request and providing such a thorough inspection and report. The walk through was informative and helpful, especially with our limited time frame."
