This review is several years past due (2014), but I am still so thankful for the 2 reviews Jim did for us. We were first time homebuyers and Jim saved us from purchasing a terrible home. Jim accurately told us the costly fixes that would need to be done in the first 5 years of us living in our current home (roof, driveway, water heater, chimney). We are currently thinking about moving in the next year and Jim is the only inspector we will use with our next home purchase. I cannot recommend him enough!
