Recent Client Testimonials for Reid Stever

We are in the process of selling our home & buying a new home in the Fishtown area of Philadelphia.  I had to attend the inspection of our new home by myself as our relator & my husband could not be there.  Our realtor had recommended ValueGuard and my husband had used them 7 years ago when he bought our existing home.  I CAN NOT say enough good things about Reid Stever who was their inspector that came out yesterday.  He was very thorough, very personable and he took time to explain things so that I could understand them.  I felt like he was genuinely happy to be there & wanted to do a good job to ensure that we were getting a good home!  I would use them again (and we may have to based on some of the things he found), recommend them to anyone in the area that is looking for an inspection company and although I am sure you can not request a certain inspector I can not say enough good things about Reid who just happen to be the inspector that was assigned to our home.

The Valueguard team was exceptional. They were able to book an appointment the day after I called. The inspector, Reid  was on time, very personable, and was knowledgeable about his job. He was very thorough and explained what he found in each section of the inspection as he went, which was then backed up in the inspection report. The report also contained cost estimates for work that needed to be performed. We also used them for Radon testing which was extremely easy.
D. Wilkens, Philadelphia, PA

Our home inspector was Reid and he did an amazing job. He went through every spot in the house and took his time explaining everything to me as we went. It was a 3 story row home in the Fishtown neighborhood. It took about 3 hours to complete. We spent a lot of time in the basement going through several things that were concerning. He identified several things that needed to be repaired, and differentiated things that were not needed, but were recommended. It was a great experience. Punctual, professional, great value for the money. Would highly recommend this service to anyone needing a home inspection prior to purchasing a home! We also had the radon tested the same day, which took about 20 minutes to set up in the basement and we had the results back within a week. The full report from the home inspection came back about 24 hours later. Very fast turnaround for the amount of detail that was included!

I hired ValueGuard previously for another house inspection for a deal that thankfully didn’t go through. The inspection caught some serious structural issues that we were happy to walk away from. On the second inspection, this time a different and far more well-kept house, ValueGuard did another great job.
I requested Reid for both inspections because he was extremely personable, patient and informative as I asked many questions. I’d hire him again, even though I hope don’t have to (at least anytime soon)!

I can not say enough how amazing Reid is.  Beyond thorough and informative.  He is always my first choice & recommendation.
