Your inspection, of the home we are purchasing, made it possible to go to the seller with solid evidence of certain structural and safety issues that we were able to get credit for in the escrow. The oral summary prior to the delivery of the written report gave me a comfort level in the purchase that there would be no real issues in the house that would stop the purchase. Your house inspection was thorough and your conscientious methods did not disrupt a nervous seller. The follow up letter needed by the bank helped move along my financing of the home. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone, over all a professional and effective home inspection.

I recently hired John to inspect a house I had made an offer on, in Venice, CA. His work was meticulous, the detail in the home inspection report was outstanding. I showed his report to my father-in-law who is an inspector in Virginia, and he was also very impressed. John's house inspection gave me everything I needed to negotiate effectively for credits, and move ahead with the house purchase with complete confidence. I can thoroughly recommend him.

John Mettle is a consummate professional. Having purchased and sold a dozen houses in the last 15 years, I’ve had a chance to work with many of the areas home inspectors, and John is by far the best. If you want to be certain that you have a complete picture of any issues that may exist in a home you are considering, John must inspect it. His attention to detail, his thoroughness, and the completeness of his reports, are impeccable. I personally would not even consider purchasing a house without John first inspecting it.

We recently hired John Mettle to inspect a home that we subsequently purchased. He was incredibly thorough and pointed out many issues we otherwise would not have noticed and that less thorough home inspectors would not have discovered. He found major problems like a broken chimney, even though the exterior was covered by thick foliage. John's report and referrals to other highly competent professionals allowed us to determine the exact nature of repairs and to seek and receive appropriate credit from the sellers. He was professional and courteous at all times, and we highly recommend him.

As an Agent working with Buyers, I am excited to have John Mettle back in the field. John's home inspection reports are most thorough, professional and user friendly.The format of his reports with pictures, summary and itemized sections help me and my Buyers understand and discuss what the concerns and issues are with the house.It makes it easier for me to get estimates from contractors and helps me negotiate credits with the Sellers because the issues are clearly spelled out in his inspection reports for everyone to understand.

I've now completed two separate property inspections with John and look forward to engaging him in the future as well. I'm very happy with the level of detail in his reports, they are composed in an easy to read fashion, and have been instrumental in the diligence of prospective property acquisitions.
