I recently bought my first home and had James inspect it for me based on a recommendation. I was very impressed with his knowledge and ability to explain issues to someone who isn't an expert. He uses technology others don't and provides a very thourough inspection report. Highly recommend him for all inspection needs.
Tom was our home inspector and he was a delight to work with. He spent almost 2 hours with us going over every nook and cranny in the house, explaining the good, the bad, and the strange. He had very confident and insightful answers to every question that we had and offered knowledgeable and experienced remedy suggestions, including what you can do DIY or should hire a handy man or contractor for. He was like an open book and as first time home buyers, we really appreciated that. I would highly recommend Peace of Mind Home Inspections and inspector Tom to anyone needing a home inspection. True to their name, spending a few hundred dollars with them has really given us peace of mind on what were getting into with our home and what we can expect down the road from it.
Going into my first home purchase, I didn't know much of what to look for etc. These folks were recommended by my realtor and I'm very happy to have went with them. The response from my first email was almost instant. Very detailed. Friendly and up front. We did a home inspection with radon check. The Inspector (Chuck) not only did a great job. Very detailed, explained everything to us in a way we could understand. These folks really have a passion for what they do and it's hard to find that now days. Now the details of the inspection. The initial cost was on par for a first time inspection. Based on what others priced out. But when we got the final report and saw how detailed it was. I felt like I should have paid them more. 5 out of 5 for sure and I would definitely go to them again in the future and will be recommending them.
Peace of Mind Home Inspections came highly recommended by my realtor. I spoke with Jim on the phone. He was polite, understanding and helpful. He got me scheduled quickly and fit it into my schedule. The cost of the inspection was very reasonable. Chuck was the inspector that came out to the home I'm hoping to purchase. He spent several hours checking everything, behind several nooks and odd spaces, he took pictures and made notes. I arrived after the inspection and he had his laptop and pictures available to walk me through the things that he'd noted. Ultimately the house is in great shape, so there wasn't anything unexpected. He paused for me to ask questions, made some suggestions on ways to deal with a few things, and suggested a contractor and/or professional for some repair needs. He gave me an outlook of what might need fixing immediately and approximate age and need of several potential major expenses (furnace, roof, AC, appliances, plumbing, etc). I was given a CD of the photos of the inspection after our meeting. Later the same day, I received an email with the full report. Chuck was extremely personable. He had excellent customer service, was engaging, light hearted and honest. I really felt at ease and felt like he listened to my concerns and didn't make me feel foolish for asking the questions I did ask. I could not recommend Peach of Mind Home Inspections enough. Wishing I could give a 10 out of 5 and feel that the name of the company is quite fitting! =)
Chuck completed my home inspection today and did a fantastic job. I myself have worked as a home inspector in the past. Chuck was thorough, knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I was truly impressed with the job he did. I will not hesitate to recommend your company to my friends or others needing inspection services.
Jim, Thank you for your wonderful service and communication. Chuck was so great and went above and beyond what I was expecting. Thank you to both of you and I'll be recommending your service as much as possible.
Hey Jim, Emilee thought you were very thorough and professional! Thank you for helping her understand the process and explaining everything. Will definitely refer you again!
Chuck, Thanks for all your work, it was a pleasure having you be our inspector again! We really enjoy how thorough you are and the detailed explanations that you give. Jacquie and I will definitely recommend you to friends and family looking to purchase a home.
Dear Friends, I have used Jim's services twice now, and man he is the most thorough inspector I have worked with in my Real Estate career.
I am a first time home buyer with plenty of nerves and questions. Jim Peterson with Peace of Mind Home Inspections settled my nerves and walked me through the entire process. He went beyond the services of a home inspection to ensure that I felt comfortable with the home. He gave me a discount because of my employment as a police officer and expressed gratitude for the position. Overall, a great experience, I will be passing his number to all friends and family.
Jim, Thank you again for all of the work you did. It is a great feeling and huge relief to see all the time and effort you put in inspecting out new home. The worries of what might come up is greatly reduced after seeing how thoroughly you went through the house. As a potential buyer, there is just not enough time (and lack of equipment) during a showing to do such a thorough inspection. Once again thank you for your work and the Peace of Mind you provide.
Chuck, Thank You!! We are extremely happy with your attention to detail. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family!!
Jim, Thanks again for your help with the inspection. You certainly provided a lot of peace of mind in my home purchase!
Hi Jim, Thank you for the nice inspection yesterday- you covered a lot of material and the report was impressive!!
We were very impressed with the level of detail AND specific guidance he covered in 3 hours! Additionally, he added insight into our neighborhood and style of construction for our home, which is a big help for us as we've relocated back to MN. His deliverables were high quality, timely, and proved to be very effective in getting concessions from the seller. We'd absolutely recommend James to anyone in the market for a home inspection.
