I had a fantastic experience working with Insight Property Services, and I couldn't say one bad thing about them. They did a home inspection and a mold report. Actually, they outsourced the mold and air quality reports, I think. They get an A+ from me.
I had a home inspection done by them a few months ago. I can't remember the name of the gentleman who did our inspection, but he was very thorough. He explained things to me very well, and he was just very nice and took his time, which I appreciated. He was very honest about the things that needed to be fixed and what didn't need to be fixed right away. They were recommended to us by our real estate agent, I believe. We are moving, or attempting to move, into a new place. I would say they did a fantastic job.
Insight Property Services did a home inspection, and everything was great. Tom, the inspector, was competent, and he actually explained everything pretty well. He was very detailed, and he showed us everything—even minor things that needed to be worked on. The company was a referral from our real estate agent. Everything was pretty standard. They get an A+ rating.
He was very thorough in the inspection process. I found them through my real estate agent. They deserve an A.
It was a very good experience. I guess they were thorough, and the report was also good and helpful. It was an inspection. The work was A-grade.
Everything went very smoothly. They told me what I needed to hear, and when I asked them a question, they were able to answer it. They did a condo inspection. I was actually referred to them by someone I trusted, and that's why I followed through with it. I'd definitely give Insight Property Services an A.
He was nice guy. They did a home inspection. He just took his time and appeared to do it right. The company gets an A grade.
Insight Property Services did a home inspection for the refinance and for a purchase. When we went to purchase the condo that we're moving into, before we went to the closing, we had an inspection. They seemed to be thorough, and they did tell us some things we had suspicions about. As far as I know, it is fine. They did fine. My husband dealt with them more than I did, but from what I remember, everything was done very well.
We had a home inspection in the middle of May. Generally, they were on time and prompt, so it was a pleasant experience. We actually just asked our real estate agent to set it up, and Insight Property Services was the only one that was available. I would give the company an A grade.
They did a home inspection. They had a very thorough report and thorough inspection. They were respectful of me and my knowledge. I have had other home inspectors before who were very sexist, and this company was not, so that was nice. I knew people who knew them and had a good experience with them. Their report was thorough, but it was also very quick. I guess I would give them an A.
