Mill Park VIC
A prompt and thorough report.
Kieran was very quick and professional with his communication. I also appreciated how quickly he was able to organise the building inspection with the real estate agent directly, which made it much more convenient for me! He took the time to explain his report and answer any questions that I had about it. Thank you! Very smooth process, no hitches at all. I would definitely hire him again.

Botanic Ridge, VIC
My request was handled in a speedy and highly professional manner. The report was detailed and carefully explained. Excellent follow-up phone call to see if I had understood everything.
Exceedingly professional in their inspection. They gave us a thorough report and a verbal conversation stating any issues with the property. This enlightened us to extra works we would need to do on the property, which we wouldn't have known about otherwise. We hired Kieran for a second consult on another property and trusted his professional opinion on the sound structure of this property. We were able to put an offer in with peace of mind that this property was in excellent condition. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to purchase a property. Their rates are also competitive and affordable.
