Josh inspected our property prior to its sale and was thorough and provided clear communication to both myself and the... new buyer. It's hard watching someone else pick your house apart, but we were so impressed with Josh's work that we asked him to inspect a property we were hoping to buy. His report was fabulous and he went above and beyond answering our questions about pool legislation. Unfortunately that sale fell through, but Josh has assisted us yet again, with our current purchase. He has been thorough, answered my phone enquiries for clarification and produced a report in a timely manner. He even called me after the inspections to fill me in on his findings before the formal report arrived knowing that as we were in a rushed, multiple offers situation that we needed a fast response. Highly recommend SIBI.read more
