Ross Neag of Domicile Consulting was our inspector. I needed his expertise on a house we were buying. I had NO idea who to choose so we went to YELP for the highest reviews and they came up!
When I talked to Ross on the phone he was very nice and when I asked him what sets him apart from the rest – he said he treats his clients as if they are family. And that was sooo true!! It was like having my well informed uncle or brother near our side.
He was able to tell us in person the problem areas – whether big or small what was going on with this old frame house in Chicago. There was never a point in the inspection that we didn’t understand something – and if it was something challenging – he would break it down to terms we understood.
His finished report was available online and in full detail – including photos with either arrows or circled items. It was very thorough inspection of the house. Including the performance of the house and how best to optimize the house. Amazing.
In the end there was way too much stuff to do to the house – and learned it was basically the ‘lip stick on a pig’ house. So a big THANKS to Ross for finding all the hidden problems that this owner was trying to hide with paint and what not. We did not go through the process of buying the house.
NOTE: about 2/3rds way through his inspection he realized that everything was going to cost too much to fix – because he knew our budget. So he basically stopped the inspection after he got all the ammo we would need to pull out of our accepted contract. And in doing so he saved us money on his inspection. Smart!
The next time we need an inspector – we’re using Ross again. He’s super friendly and we’ll recommend him to all our friends and family – as he did treat us as family!
