It was already 5 star, but I wanted to take the time to say that Brian did a fantastic job. We are really thankful for a thorough report and especially appreciate how kind and polite he was. He obviously knew what he was doing, but he took the time to break it down in a way that we could understand. He was great!

Best inspection I have every had done on a home! 5 stars isn't enough. This was my 5th home to have inspected and I wish Calibre had done them all!

Sandra Juergens

I have talked to my Realtor and told her how impressed I was with you and told her to make sure she really recommends you to clients. If I can think of others I can tell, I will be happy to do so. I was impressed with you professionalism, your thoroughness and your extreme patience in explaining items to your client.

Thank you! I have enjoyed the newsletters and look forward to their assistance in maintaining my home. We closed yesterday and are in the midst of moving in this week. We have a sales call with CPI next weekend for the security system. I have been thoroughly impressed by your commitment of providing your customer more than just an inspection and you will be top of mind when I learn of anyone buying a home.

John Telo

We've purchased 8 homes in several states.
Each time we had a home inspection done.
All of these inspections were less than 2 hours in duration. I found your inspection process to be the most thorough & focused I have ever seen. Your attention to detail on every area in the home & your clearly explained review was exceptional. I truly appreciate a job well done, especially when such an important purchase is under consideration. I will be sure to recommend your company in the future. Thank You.

Latosha and Bill

He was punctual, thorough, professional, and we really felt that he was looking out for our best interest. Overall we were very satisfied with Calibre Home Inspections and would recommend their services to anyone looking for an inspector.
