Dear Joe,

Jim and I are so grateful for your help with our home inspection that I just had to write a personal note.

Because of your knowledge and experience – and the incredible measures you took – we were able to avoid a situation that would have been much too costly and problematic. We’re very fortunate to have met a man of your honesty and integrity, and we are truly grateful.

And we look forward to working with you again soon on what we hope will be a much more successful venture.

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,

Deborah Meyer and Jim Gassambone

Joe is a total professional He was super thorough and took the time to explain everything. I have extensive experience in the building trades but wanted an unbiased opinion. He didn't miss anything that I picked up on and all his explanations were spot on. Money well spent!!

We were buying an older home and I wanted a really good home inspector. Joe had great reviews on google. I contacted him and his responses were prompt and were to the point. He explained to me detail what all things he would look at. On the day of the inspection Joe was early to the appointment. He walked me through every detail of the inspection as he was doing it. He explained to me what he was looking for and what would be a violation. He also patiently answered all of my questions and concerns. What impressed me most was his continued support. I have reached out to him a few weeks after the inspection with questions and he has always been prompt in answering my questions/concerns. Joe is a true professional who really enjoys what he does. It was a pleasure working with him.

My husband and I can't say enough good things about Joe! His vast knowledge, attention to detail, and great personality make for a fantastic experience from beginning to end. He truly left no stone unturned when inspecting our home, arriving before our scheduled time to inspect the roof and perform our oil tank sweep, and spending more than 3 hours total (on a small cape!). My husband and I asked a hundred (probably more) questions during the process, and we were so pleasantly surprised to see how patient he was with answering questions and explaining every detail of our house to us. He never once made us feel silly or a bother, which was so appreciated, as the home inspection can be overwhelming for 1st time home buyers. You truly do get the sense you are walking through the home with a family member who really cares about you and your well being, as he is so invested in making sure that you are aware of and fully understand every single thing he notices. We will be singing his praises and recommending him to everyone we know who is looking for home inspection services! Thanks so much, Joe! Danielle & Adam

Over a month ago, I left a favorable review for Joe on HomeGauge but felt the need to come here to leave another review because he is so deserving of it. If you need to hire a home inspector, do yourself a big favor and hire Joe without hesitation because he is truly the best! He is highly qualified in his profession and will thoroughly inspect the home you plan to buy. He is quick to provide you with a very comprehensive inspection report with photos and extra information that most inspectors do not routinely include. In my situation, a piece of extra information provided in his report was crucial during my repair negotiations and will end up saving me a ton of money. What impressed me most is Joe's availability and support after the inspection was completed and the report delivered. More than a month after my home inspection, I continued to reach out to him with follow-up questions about various inspection issues, and he was always patient, kind, and helpful in further explaining everything to me. I truly feel that he has gone above and beyond to educate me and guide me through a challenging process. I wholeheartedly recommend him if you are in need of a home inspector!

Joe is a wonderful individual that has passion for what he does. He was very professional, thorough, and detail oriented during his inspection. The report that he provides you in the end not only addresses items for repair but also tips and other information about the house that is useful to know as homeowners. We HIGHLY recommend his services.

5 stars all the way. Never met the man in my life until the day of our home inspection but I am so glad we found him and chose him for the job. He was complete, thorough, meticulous, informative and professional. Nothing got past him; and he was so knowledgeable about every aspect of the home- electrical, plumbing, HVAC, termites, etc. Provided great advice and suggestions and without question saved me money. Thank you Joe. I’d highly recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection.

The most professional and thorough inspection i have had on a home purchase . Joe went top to bottom looking at every little thing to make sure everything was in working order. I absolutely recommend Joe to others especially first time buyers who might not know what to look for.

Joe is very thorough in his inspection and the report was beyond detailed. He is very knowledgeable whenever we asked any questions, and in fact he uncovered some serious fire hazards in the electrical work. We also were able to follow up with additional questions after the fact, Joe was more than happy to answer and explain and provide suggestions. He was also helpful with cco issues we had on the property that came up post inspection, highly recommend!

Joe was extremely professional and thorough in conducting our home inspection. He arrived promptly (even before the agreed meeting time), and took time to help us understand all identified issues (from minor to major [structural, environmental, etc.]). Joe used detailed photos of the issues to supplement his report, and also included the impact of each. This helped us better understand which items should be raised to the seller for remediation, prior to contract closure. He was personable, skilled, and extremely knowledgeable--I would recommend Joe to my closest family and friends!!! Thanks Joe!

Joe did an amazingly thorough inspection of the house and delivered me a report the next day. He found a number of items in the house that I would have never even thought to look for. I was able to use the report to negotiate seller credits for the home and will use the inspection report as a road map post-closing for repairs and maintenance. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and responsive. I highly recommend his services and wouldn't think of buying a home or property without getting his eyes on it.

Last week Joe from HomeVantage did an inspection of a condo apartment my wife & I are purchasing. He did a complete & thorough inspection. The report he sent, via email, was in great detail, totally understandable & included a summary explaining what items & problems he thought needed to be taken care of before moving in. I was with Joe while he was conducting the inspection. During the inspection he pointed out to me many of the items listed in the summary. I found this very helpful. Thank you Joe for your time spent & for your thoroughness. I would definitely recommend you to anyone needing an inspection service. Best Jay

Joe was the inspector for the first home my wife and I sought to purchase. He was incredibly thorough in going through the home, explaining how things worked and what to look out for in the future, as well as clearly pointing out issues he would address in his report. His report was extremely timely, as we received it the same day as the inspection! The report was in depth, had many images, and was very useful in helping us get issues addressed by the seller. Would absolutely use Joe again for any inspections in the future and would recommend him without reservation.

In my almost 40 years of building and real-estate experience Joe is the most highly qualified home inspector I've had the opportunity to encounter. Joe's experience and knowledge from his years as a building contractor and a construction official for a local town brings a very unique and specific expertise to his home inspection business that I have yet to find in another inspector. I highly recommend Joe as a home inspector to anyone who wants a very complete articulate and extremely knowledgeable inspection on their home.

I'm not one to write reviews but Joe was exceptional. The whole process of the inspection from contacting him, picking a date on line & then inspection itself was the easiest part of my difficult real estate transaction. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough & trustworthy. His report was very detailed, easy to understand & well worth it. You can't go wrong with Joe, he is a genuinely nice man & I highly recommend him.

Owner/Inspector Joe was awesome! He is a great inspector and extremely knowledgeable. He explained everything to me as we walked through the property. This was extremely helpful for a first-time home buyer. He had some great recommendations for preventative care in the future as well. His report came within 48 hours too. I will use him again in the future and will recommend him. Forgot to mention... he is extremely personably too.

My husband and I are both very please with our home inspection performed by Joe. He did a phenomenal job. He was very professional and conducted the most detailed inspection I had ever witnessed.

I could not be happier with the service and expertise that Joe provided. He was incredibly thorough from the smallest detail outside to things inside that I would have never even considered looking at. Joe explained everything during the process as he was inspecting. This gave me a much better understanding of the ins and outs of my home. I would recommend HomeVantage to anyone looking for a detailed home inspection.

Joe was incredible throughout the home inspection process. Joe took the time to explain things as he was doing the inspection and was very patient in answer all my questions. Joe's work resulted in a significant savings after getting the seller to repair the issues identified. For me, it was important to find an inspector that had construction experience so I did a lot of research. It was surprising to me to find out that many do not actually have construction experience. Joe has over 35 years of construction and code experience and after watching him work first hand that was evident. For example, Joe ACTUALLY goes up on the roof and does a full inspection. I spoke with inspectors that wouldn't go up on the roof and have seen others just put a camera on a poll and take pictures (I personally wouldn't hire anyone that will not go on the roof). In addition, approximately 9 years ago I used one of the inspectors that charges double all the other inspectors and I can personally tell you that Joe was better. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Joe.

Joseph inspected a property purchase I am making and I was very pleased and impressed with his thorough, detailed approach. What separates him from the majority of others is his wide ranging background from being a contractor and building inspector, so he can look at it from your point of view as a homeowner and property investor. He can tell you how much something is going to cost and the risk analysis vs just the problems a place has. I find it hard to believe you will find better choices and would use Joseph again and will recommend him to others. He even takes credit card on the spot, what's not to like?
