Soooo glad that I went with Louis of Hallmark Home Inspections rather than an agency who just contracts out people to show up at a home inspection (and you have no clue their experience/expertise). Louis went through every single room with me of the 100 year old Victorian we just purchased and pointed out things I would never think of. He spoke with me in a language that I understood and answered every single one of my questions with solid, concrete and honest answers. I felt like Louis was a family friend helping me out rather than someone who was watching the clock and looking to cut corners. Having only met me the day of the inspection, he really felt like a trusted friend and made this process as smooth and as educational as possible. Couldn't recommend him enough!
Louis did such a thorough inspection of our first home in 2011, we knew he was the only person we would trust seven years later on this inspection.
I left the inspection with an in-depth understanding of my new home. Even though this home is 92 years old, I really feel that I know what I am buying.
My co-workers warned me about substantial problems found shortly after moving into their new homes that were not discussed during their home inspections. I was so happy that we had done our homework and found Louis. My co-workers were very surprised at how detailed his report was. They also could not believe that we had spent over three hours at the inspection. Louis made such a difference in our home buying experience.
I had purchased many investment properties over the years, so I really thought I knew what to expect on the inspection. Let's just say that my previous inspectors were not very impressive. I quickly realized that I never had worked with a professional as knowledgeable and thorough as Louis. It was money well spent.
My spouse was traveling and could not attend the inspection. Because this was such an old home, I didn't know what to expect. Louis was so great in explaining everything as we went through the house and clearly answering my questions. When we later reviewed the report, I was very comfortable discussing details with my spouse. Louis even spent quite a while on the phone days after the inspection to be sure he had answered all of our questions. He is a true professional.
Thanks Louis. It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday, and I really appreciate receiving the report today. I've read other inspection reports before, and yours is much clearer and more user-friendly than others, so I appreciate how you have approached this.
