Andy was INCREDIBLY thorough and in a different league than the inspector we had for our last home purchase. If you want to know every little thing about a property to make it perfect, he's your guy.

JD is a very informative and helpful inspector. He walked us thru several phases of the inspection and answered all of our questions. We are very pleased with his service and really appreciate his integrity, which seems to be hard to find in the business world.

Mike was extremely thorough during the inspection. He was also great at communicating the issues and was friendly. We really felt his care for the process, as he took his time and went out of his way to ensure that we were informed on the most critical issues of the property. As first time homebuyers, we couldn’t be more thankful for our experience!

Our Home Inspection was performed by Felipe Machado and I cannot say enough good things about him. He was extremely professional, kind, and informative. He answered all our questions (and we had a lot!) and gave us a lot of information and tips for proper fixes and maintenance of our new home. No question was too silly and he didn't make us feel dumb for some of the questions we felt like maybe should have been obvious to us! He showed us everything we should look out for in the future and "treated us like family" in his thorough inspection and recommendations to us. We felt very comfortable with him and felt confident that he did a thorough job of inspecting our home. He delivered the report very quickly, and we really don't see how the service could have been any better. The report was detailed and summarized all the key things we should fix first.He was great and I would recommend him and Highland Home Inspection to anyone.

Great communication. Thorough inspections. Jamie walked me through everything I needed to know and was happy to answer all my questions. When he didn't have an answer for a weird thing, he asked his team and got some feedback while he was still performing the inspection.I've used these folks twice and will happily continue.

Jamie did our first ever home inspection and I didn't know what to really expect, but I felt he was very thorough and took his time explaining everything to us home buying newbies. He made sure we understood what he was explaining and what actions were or weren't recommended to take moving forward. I felt he was very thorough and answered all the questions we had (and even ones we didn't know we had!) and we left the inspection feeling very confident. We even got our report the same day! I definitely recommend Highland Home Inspections.

I am a realtor and I use Highland Home Inspections whenever possible when working with buyers. They are organized, professional and always patiently answer my clients' questions. They provide ample detail, but are not alarmist. They are particularly good with first-time home buyers.

Highland Home Inspections came highly recommended and they did not disappoint! JD did the inspection on our 1910 row house in November 2020. The detailed report he gave us following that has been really helpful since then, as we've begun to make well-informed improvements on our home. As someone who's in a similar position (I do home energy audits), I have pretty high standards for this sort of thing and JD / Highland Home Inspections definitely exceeded them.

JD was extremely thorough during our inspection, and was excellent at walking through everything he found. He was very pleasant to work with, and patient in making sure we understood all issues identified. JD also showed photos of everything he discovered no matter how small so we understood exactly what the problems were. I'd highly recommend him for any house inspection in the future, I can only hope everyone buying a house feels as informed as we did after using Highland Home Inspections.

JD was a great thorough inspector who put in the time and attention to detail ensuring that not only the report he provide was of high quality, but that even walking away from the inspection we were comfortable with knowing the condition and areas of concern for the home we are purchasing. Sadly I don't plan on buying another home any time soon or I would be working with Highland Home Inspection and requesting JD again!

I cannot tell you how happy I am with the home inspection we got. Our inspector showed up on time, and answered every single question I had and then some. Never once did any of my concerns get brushed aside or meant to feel silly.I explained that I grew up in a home that caught fire and the floor was falling out due to water damage/mold. And every time I asked, "Is [insert feature about the house here] a fire/water hazard?" I was answered honestly and empathetically!We found out about the defects in our home, and were directed to the people we should contact to really get specialized opinions about. But Highland has eagle eyes. Our inspector picked up on things both me and my husband hadn't even realized were there.I'd rate this service a 10/10 if I could. They're worth every penny. There was no hustle, no hassle. Very thorough and super knowledgeable. If/when I ever need to get my home inspected again, I'm going to contact them. I'm not a bot and this review was not paid. I am a real person, just like you reading this. I went through all the home inspection companies and settled on this one, and I'm glad I did.I can tell you they're worth it!

I highly recommend this company. I’m a first-time home buyer, and went through my home inspection with Andy Vergara. He was thorough, knowledgeable, and personable. He explained everything in terms I could follow and gave me tips on the things I could install or monitor myself. He also explained that he was going to find a lot of issues, but that I should try not too feel overwhelmed, because not everything would need to be addressed right away. I really appreciated the info, as I’ve never been through an inspection before. I received the final report about 24 hours after the inspection, which was much faster than I expected. Completely satisfied with my experience.

Andy Vergara is just simply an all around great person. He really does a excellent job and knows homes inside and out. He taught me more in the hour I spent with him then what I learned in my 8yrs in construction. He was able to answer any and every question I had with detail. I like him so much that I would recommend him to anyone. Keep up the good work Andy and good luck on your book.

We were quite impressed with the apparent thoroughness of our home inspection and by the inspector's knowledge. Highland came recommended by our broker, who spoke highly of this particular inspector. We also were glad to get his report early the next morning. The one caveat I will make is that this was the first time we have used any home inspection service, so we cannot make any comparisons.

Could not have had a more positive experience with Highland Home Inspections during the home inspection for our new house. JD was a consummate professional. He was detail oriented, was obviously experienced and extremely knowledgeable, but most importantly was a great communicator who was able to portray nuanced issues in a way my novice mind could comprehend. He took great pictures, kept us posted throughout the process, and provided a timely, detailed report replete with important recommendations. Could not have been a better experience!

Dan was very friendly and helpful, taught us a lot about our future home, and promptly provided a thorough report, complete with explanations and pictures. This will be very useful to us well beyond closing. The back office was also very prompt and courteous. I highly recommend Highland Home Inspections!

We used Highland Home Inspections in January 2021. This was our first time using any inspection services. Their website was super easy to use and book an appointment and they reached out right away with confirmation.The inspection itself was super detailed and informative. Our inspector Mike helped us understand everything and answered any questions we had in detail. He not only took the time to inspect the house and provide recommendations but also educate us about the various options. He was super thorough and inspected the house like it was his own. He did not leave any stone unturned and that reflected in the detailed report we got within 24 hours. The report had pictures for every section and elaborate information about each section.We would definitely recommend them!!

Barry came out to inspect a 20-year-old home that we're in the process of buying. He was professional and extremely thorough with the inspection, taking upwards of four hours end-to-end. He was patient and took time to explain his key findings to us. And the very next morning, we had the full report emailed to us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company.

I heard about Highland Home Inspection from my brother who used the company just a week before I did. As a first time home buyer I didn't know if Highland Homes would be able to do the inspection on such short notice but they were happy to help and flexible with a time that worked for my schedule. Andy was on time and ready for the job. He took the time to thoroughly inspect the whole condo and patiently answer any questions I had. A few times I needed him to break it down even more so I could understand and take good notes and he was happy to help. When it was done, Andy said I will have the report in my email the next morning, but I ended up getting it that same night! With Andy's detailed inspection, I was able to negotiate the price down and get a home warranty from the current owners. I am sure the whole Highland Inspection team is great if they are anything like Andy! Would 10000% recommend.

I've been in the business over 15 years and have been through enough inspections to know an exceptional inspector. Barry Hoskins is one of my favorites. He is thorough and unalarming. He has a way of pointing out deficiencies in a home without making them seem scary. Not an easy task when buyers' emotions are running high. Highland Home Inspections is at the top of my list.
