“After this process, both my husband and I remarked that it’s a shame we don’t need a home inspector more often. We had such a great experience working with James and would hire him all over again in a heartbeat. He was incredibly thorough, taking time to check every little detail (including tons of things we never would have thought to even ask about). After he does his super detailed inspection, he walks you through his findings — AND he explains crucial things about how your house works (for example, he showed us how to use our new fireplace, where the water gas and electricity control panels are and how to operate them, etc.). Even if we aren’t asking the seller to repair all the things James found, we now have a perfect checklist for what repairs we need to do upon moving into the house. Plus, he’s very friendly and easy to talk to. Seriously, worth every penny!”
“We are in the process of buying a new house and selling our old house (like most people using a home inspector are). James did an excellent job finding all of the issues with the new house so that I am comfortable buying it now that I know all of the house’s problems (which fortunately turned out to be minor). I wouldn’t have known what a good job James did if I wasn’t able to compare his work against the person that inspected my house. I was a bit concerned about the inspection, but that inspector didn’t find some of the issues (though minor) that I knew existed. I am just glad I had James inspect the house I am buying. In addition to the great job he did, he answered all of my follow up questions. Thanks James!”
“I had initially agreed to use the seller’s inspector for our home purchase. Wanting to get an inspector more neutral I was driving up from LA to Sacramento for an inspection the next day before I realized that I should not use the seller’s inspector. I was referred to James by another broker and called his office who was most helpful in scheduling James for the day after. So I canceled the inspection with the seller’s inspector not really knowing what to expect from James.
My wife and I were totally impressed with how meticulous and thorough James was in going through every part of the home. I was told that inspectors do a fast job and then talk to you at the end. Not so with James. He took his time and even answered questions my wife and I during the inspection. He was quite tuned into every possible detail in the house and pointed things out to us as he went along, and although I felt we were interrupting him a bit he did not mind. He pointed out things that should be repaired and was very fair in telling us what was our responsibility and what was the seller’s responsibility. He was able to physically get into small spaces, like the crawl space, that I could never imagine being able to get into.
And the final report with pictures and full explanations came so very promptly. The report made so much sense because he had taken the time to verbally tell us things before. And he tells you whether it is optional to do something, or whether it is important to do something.
Whether you are the seller or the buyer, James is the home inspector for you. I very rarely write yelp reviews, this is maybe my 10th one, but when someone totally impresses you, I felt I wanted to let others know.
He even offered to come back to make sure the repairs by the seller were made–the repairs that we physically could not see, like the crawl space. In other words, we felt he was doing this job because he cared about the process-he cared that the home was in good condition. No rush, just caring.”
“James was wonderful!! The inspection process was a breeze and the added feature of correlating a seperate pest inspection through the website was a time saver!! The report its self was easy to read with color coded identifiers and pictures. I highly recommend Chris. He is not the cheapest and probably more expensive than the other home inspectors, but there is a reason for that! Quality, professional, and thorough inspection!!”
“James, is an excellent Home Inspector. Very professional and I highly recommend him.”
“I cannot say enough good things about James. He is such a thorough and respectful individual not only with his outstanding service, but as a person as well! He went the extra mile to give me the peace of mind I so needed as I was purchasing my first house with my fiance, and was discouraged by our realtor to not do an inspection. A HUGE red flag. I let James know of my distress and he personalized the inspection by asking me if there are any specific things he would like me to have looked at. He arrived right on time and got straight to work. James is the BEST Home Inspector in Sacramento HANDS DOWN. If you don’t believe the raving reviews about him, then go ahead and take a big risk with someone else. James will not disappoint and you will be so happy that you went with him. James, thank you again!!”
“My wife and I were blown away by the thoroughness of James’ report. It was 60 pages long and included many pictures and specific detailed recommendations.
We were also impressed with how quickly James got the report to us – it arrived in my Inbox less than 12 hours after he finished the inspection – impressive!
Since our house is 93 years old we were very grateful that James was able to explain the difference between things that are “old” or “unusual” and things that are “a problem.”
Often times you get exactly what you pay for. Sacramento Home Inspections is definitely not the cheapest, but James is the best home inspector in Sacramento and we were grateful to have him!”
“James completed a thorough inspection. If you are looking for a home inspector, don’t hesitate to schedule one with him! Thank you!”
“James is the best. He is punctual, professional and knowledgeable. You can count on him to be very thorough and detail-oriented. I am a first-time buyer and very nervous. James was always there when we have questions, always polite and patient. He is very prompt with replying email. If you have time to join him in inspection, you can definitely learn lot about the house from him. His report has tons of pictures, detailed descriptions and very professional suggestions. His suggestions is not only towards which parts needs to be repaired but also the maintenance to keep the current good condition. We are very lucky to find him as our home inspector and definitely recommend him to any home buyers.”
