Ottawa, ON Franchise - Inspector Nathan Boucher

Our Home Inspector Nathan Boucher was exceptional! A true professional who was very focused and diligent throughout the entire process. He made sure to take the necessary time to fully understand our property and provided detailed notes every step of the way. Nathan was extremely friendly and easy to work with, especially during the summary portion where he made us feel extremely confident in our purchase decision, while also being very clear and honest regarding the advisable work that needs to be done. I can not recommend Nathan and Mike Holmes Inspections highly enough and will certainly be doing so to anyone who crosses my path. Thanks Nathan!

We were very happy with the inspection process- it was very thorough, Phil and Jackson were very patient and thoroughly answered all of our questions in a way that was easy to understand. We feel confident in their inspection and think we have a solid understanding and foundation to work off of in terms of what steps we are going to take next in addressing some of the the issues that we knew existed and ones we found out about through the inspection.They really covered all the bases and more and we will definitely be referring them in the future. We feel they went above and beyond what we were expecting and really appreciate how they conducted the inspection and their willingness to work with us.

London, ON Franchise - Inspector Kory MacDonald

Kory was a wonderful inspector. He is knowledgeable, personable, and experienced. I never felt like he was rushing to get through the inspection of my house. His explanations to me were thorough and detailed, and he was able to explain issues he found in a way that I could understand. He was lovely to work with and I trusted his opinions and recommendations. From booking the inspection to getting the final report, I had a great experience and am happy I went with Mike Holmes inspections.

-Ysabel
Orillia, ON Franchise - Inspector Dave Lobo

I wanted to email after spending the afternoon with Dave to inspect our potential home in Orillia.   I have never seen a home inspection that was so thorough or professional.  I learned more from this home inspection than I did watching my father finish project after project during my childhood.  Dave took the time to explain all of his concerns from start to finish, taught me what is and is not acceptable about each issue and why they were or weren't a cause for concern. I wanted to go into this project with both eyes open, and after this inspection I feel like we're taking on this project with x-ray vision.

Thank you so much for doing what you do, and I will definitely recommend your business to everyone I know, as well as call for your help in the future. Again, thank you
