Just a few of Mike Bluestein’s Recent Testimonials
Everything was great! Mike was there before we arrived, he walked us through the entire process, step-by-step, stopping along the way to tell us how we can fix certain things ourselves, or how to go about getting a professional to come in to take care of it. Mike took a number of photos of any issues he found, so I’m confident that everything we saw on the inspection made it into the report. Thank you!
C. LaRoche – Abington, PA
Mike arrived for the inspection early and had a list of things to show me before even I walked in the door. He was very professional and most importantly, extremely thorough. Because of his experience as a contractor, he was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the home repairs needed. He was also able to give me a general idea for what I could expect to pay to have these things fixed. The day after the inspection I received his report, which included detailed descriptions of recommended repairs and photos for reference. Mike was great to work with and I had no problem asking him questions along the way. I would absolutely use them again and wouldn’t want to purchase another home without having them check it out first.
S. Wolfe – Philadelphia, PA
Mike was very friendly and did a terrific job. Showed me and explained different things to me that I wouldn’t have been aware of. I would have full trust in him for anything. I really appreciated his concern and truthfulness with me. Wouldn’t hesitate to refer anyone to him. And of course your company, which he represents very well.
S. Cann – Fairless Hills, PA
The inspection was very thorough and detailed. Mike Bluestein was great at explaining technical details in ‘plain English’ for the ‘technically challenged’. And in pointing out things that, while functioning fine, were a bit ‘aged’ and might require attention in the future. He also described just what ‘attention’ might be needed, how to know when to get the attention and what the approximate cost might be. Very valuable information when purchasing a house and a great bargaining tool! And, above and beyond the call of duty, took the time to explain the use and care of some equipment not immediately familiar to us, such as the propane fire place. Altogether, a great experience.
M. Rosenquist – Hockessin, DE
“Mike Bluestein was very thorough and detail oriented. He took the time to explain problem areas, potential problems, as well as routine and preventative maintenance. This house had several issues that would have been tough for me to repair within my budget. Thanks to Mike I didn’t purchase a money pit!”
