Why Professional Realtors say they will continually refer us to their Clients
January 10, 2017
“Rick is an excellent home inspector. He is punctual and very thorough when he inspects a home. Rick goes the extra mile to research an item or concern to make sure that the client is getting the best knowledge and information when they are buying a home. He never rushes through to get to his next appointment. He works like me, By Referral, and explains the inspection in detail to his clients. He takes pride in his work. He can be reached at www.homeinspectorinc.com. I have been helping people buy and sell homes for over 28 years and have hired many companies to inspector homes. Rick is one of the best. “
Top Real Estate professionals know they need to recommend vendors who have their client’s best interest in mind. 14 years of experience and dozens of Yelp and Google 5-Star reviews prove this is exactly how I have built my reputation.
Every so often we ask our Realtor contacts to answer a brief survey. Here are some of the comments they have provided.
Appreciate the one on one contact with buyers and sellers.
“This home inspector does a thorough and complete job on identifying home issues and future concerns for respective Buyers. I have always been very satisfied with Rick Daniel’s detailed observations and his willingness to review all issues with the Buyers directly. His report format is written in layman’s terms for easy comprehension. I would highly recommend his home inspection service for any of my future escrows. I trust his opinion.”

(I am not sure what to do about that)
Thorough investigation even on “As Is” properties help clients to budget for repairs
“Rick Daniel is a very professional home inspector. He points out things that are of concern, but does not go over the top as some inspection companies do and really scare the buyer. He is extremely thorough, probably does one of the longest inspections I have seen. But then better to be thorough. Rick takes lots of pictures so that the buyer can view any issues that come up. I believe Rick’s home inspections are a great value and he will try to accommodate your schedule. Give him a call today, you will thank me later!”
Peace of mind knowing the structure is basically sound, even if the building is rough
The buyers can read and understand the report.
The report is not loaded with technical verbiage

Former purchasers insisted you inspect their new purchase
Your dedication and thoroughness have gained you respect
You make me look good with your good reports
Your inspection of the garage door was a bit “overzealous” but I would recommend you again.
(I bent a garage door during the autostop-reverse test. I bought the client two new matching garage doors.)
When you make a mistake, you get it taken care of fast and don’t pass it off
You respond quickly to requests
Your accurate and representative reports arrive quickly
You are willing to visit and answer former clients questions long after the report is done
“Absolutely the best! Rick Daniel is thorough and professional. He knows his stuff, and is able to communicate clearly with buyers and sellers. His reports are complete and easy to read, including photos to illustrate the items noted. I’m an experience Realtor, so I’ve worked with lots of different inspectors. Rick is always my first choice. My clients trust him, as do I.”

The summary pages are very important and helpful
You reduce my liability with your information. I would rather lose an escrow than end up in court.
