"Chuck Ryan did the inspection on two old and tricky properties I have put in offers on. His inspection was by far the most important piece of the puzzle in making a decision on whether to buy. He is extremely thorough and detailed and gets you the comprehensive report quickly. He also includes an action list so you'll know what projects to tackle as soon as you move into your new place. And he is enjoyable to work with. His price may be higher than other inspectors you'll find, but he is worth every penny and more."

"Real Inspection Services performed two home inspections for my wife and I within the last year.  We walked away from the first home based on the team's uncovering of substantial roof and electrical issues.  What really distinguishes Chuck and his team from other inspectors is their expertise separating major deficiencies in a home from correctable flaws.  We trust the team's knowledge and opinion and highly recommend them to anyone purchasing a home."

We have used this service twice and were extremely satisfied. Larry is very thorough and knowledgeable. We have recommended Real Inspection Services to all of our friends currently interested in buying a home.
