Just a few of Mike Pistor’s recent testimonials
Mike Pistor is terrific. My agent complained that he took longer than other inspectors she’s worked with, which was A-OK by me. He was knowledgeable, solicitous, and couldn’t have been more professional, so I was comfortable that the inspection was as thorough as possible.

I had a great experience with Mike. He was very thorough and explained what he was looking for, why it was important, and lots of great tips for maintenance. He was fifteen minutes late for the appointment, but this was due to a traffic accident. He called to let me know of the delay, and was very courteous. I felt the report was very thorough and included the most important information needed as well as a lot of useful information any homeowner would need in caring for their new home.
J. Reyes – Philadelphia, PA
Mike Pistor was our home inspector for a property we were under contract for in South Jersey. He was punctual, thorough and provided us with an enormous amount of home owner knowledge ie where safety shut off valves were located, what we needed to do and how often we had to perform certain tasks in order to maintain/extend the life of the house from nuts to bolts. He was also very personable and easy to get along with which made the 3-4 hours of inspection actually enjoyable. Most importantly he was very communicative about why he was looking at something or photographing an area and spent time to show us everything he was documenting and how we could prevent certain issues in the future. He also helped us price out (estimates) of what all of the repairs would cost so that when the report came we could make an educated decision about whether we wanted to close on the house or not. We ended up not purchasing the house due to significant repairs/areas of neglect. However, we found another home and had Mike come out again for an inspection and it was just as great as the first time and this time we ended up purchasing the home. I would not hesitate in recommending Mike Pistor for anyone looking for a great home inspector.

This was the second time Mike Pistor inspected a house for us. We specifically requested him since we had a good experience the first time. The first time he uncovered defects which caused us to pull out of the sale. This time he did a thorough job and found some problems that made us aware of what needed to be done before move in. We did buy the house. Mike does a great job!
