5 Stars Plus. Professionalism and thoroughness on the inspection and a wealth of information was provided. The documentation and service is a model for what every home inspection should be. Justin Nickelsen earned a great recommendation here. A tremendous performance from start to finish. We now refer people to him and highly recommend his services.

Justin Nickelsen, CMI Robert, What a wonderful compliment. We really appreciate your business and kindness! Take care! - Justin Nickelsen, Nickelsen Home Inspections (Vancouver, WA / Portland / OR)

I enjoyed the excellent service provided. Justin demonstrated expertise in the field both on the ground and in the inspection report. He was all over the house and the detached cottage. Being a multiple structure property, Justin took the extra time and care, to complete the job. The inspection report clearly communicated the condition of the home, and is thorough, concise and comprehensive. I sincerely recommend Nickelsen Home Inspections without hesitation.

Justin did a great job working with us during a process that was wholly unfamiliar to us! We are first time home buyers, and had about a million questions. Justin explained the entire process to us as he went, and provided us with a very thorough report on site. He clearly and concisely categorized all of the problems and potential issues, and explained to us what needed to happen to get them resolved! He even took multiple phone calls from us asking follow up questions later with a smile and a friendly attitude. We thank him so much for not leaving us with an overwhelmed feeling, which can easily happen in the home buying process, especially if you're new to it!

Thank you for writing and thank you for the job you did. We are so happy, I think we were meant to be here. The value of our home goes beyond money of course, but you made an honest inspection of the property and we appreciated your services.

Nickelsen Home Inspections did a fantastic job in inspecting the home that I plan to purchase. Because the home was built in the 1920s and has been extensively remodelled, the inspection required some extra time to examine and consider. Justin from Nickelsen delved into every nook and cranny of the home, took excellent photos of every item of concern, wrote a top notch report, and followed up on every question I had regarding the inspection.

Finally, Justin was able to identify a serious problem with improper ventilation and mold beneath the home, a problem which would have prevented me from buying the house, had the seller not been willing to remedy the situation. Thanks to Justin, I will continue in the closing process with peace of mind, knowing that his thorough inspection both prevented some serious risks to my health and home and saved me many thousands of dollars in repairs and treatments.

Thank you Justin and Nickelsen Home Inspections!

I called to set up an appointment. I got an appointment for the following day. Inspection at noon, 30 page report with pictures that evening. All by email. Kurt Nickelsen gave me an extensive report pointing out areas that needed attention as well as pointing out features of the house I had not noticed. I was very pleased with his efficiency, knowledge, thouroughness, and professionalism. I recommend Nickelsen Home Inspections, LLC to all. He works hard for you.

Highly recommend Justin from Nickelsen's Home Inspections. Justin was very thorough and quick to answer any questions that we had. He went above and beyond in making sure we understood the report and in explaining anything we didn't know much about. Although the purchase of the house didn't happen, you can bet we will use him again when we try again.

Justin did a phenomenal job with our home. You can tell he is an extremely ethical person. He pointed out a lot of things that even my husband (trained in construction and building) didn't see right away. His attention to detail was impeccable and his timeliness and professionalism were amazing. Inspecting a home that was over 100 years old would seem daunting, but he was extremely thorough and precise in all his assessments. We were lucky to have someone so experienced work with us.

His report was finished promptly and his overall friendly and relaxed attituded helped ease any concerns we had. Justin has a way of explaining things in a very easy-to-understand and patient manner. I couldn't possibly think of entrusting a home inspection to any other person from here on out. Highly recommended.

I am very happy with the inspection Justin did. He was very thorough and took the time to explain several things that I had questions about. He went above and beyond what he needed to do, in both the inspection process and the detailed report. He was very helpful and professional in communicating with me, my realtor,and the seller. I would highly recommend him!

We had Justin inspect our new construction that we purchased in October in North Portland. Although he did find some issues with the house, I feel like he missed a lot of things. Also, he told my husband he would check out the roof, but ended up just using binoculars on the ground. I got this inspection for my peace of mind, but I don't feel at all confident that he did a thorough job. He seemed like a nice enough person, but I would not recommend him for a new construction. Perhaps this is all one can expect from any inspector.

Meg F. - On March 1, 2013 we first saw this. We take all reviews seriously, and are truly dismayed that you found our service lacking in any way. As noted in our home inspection report and in the information accompanying the inspection (email, etc.) we make ourselves more than available to answer any questions about the inspection and the procedures of the inspection. We also make sure that the client knows, by communicating with them, that they are more than free to communicate with us. As such, we are troubled that you haven't contacted us directly with your concerns prior to telling the public about them. Do know that our inspection services, from top to bottom, is conducted in a manner that vastly exceeds the Standards of Practice set for inspectors in the State of Oregon--standards which were supplied to you with the inspection report, along with the service agreement. We are currently in the process of trying to figure out which inspection this was (we do not know off the top of our head) and will be attempting to contact you directly to resolve the matter. We appreciate your candor and bringing it to our attention, though wish you would have felt free to contact us directly.

I was actually referred to another home inspector, but their reviews were terrible. I ended up using Justin @ Nickelsen and I couldn't have been happier with the whole process. He works crazy hours and was available whenever I needed to get ahold of him. Justin was professional and thorough and very nice. He made the whole process so much easier for me. Thanks :)

RIck did a great job on my home inspection. He was very meticulous. He politely answered all of my questions as we went through the inspection. He also provided suggestions for cost-conscious ways to solve each deferred maintenance item that we encountered along the way. I was very happy with his professional workmanship.

Very thorough and professional. Explained what was critical and what not in ways I could understand. My parents were especially impressed by the onsite inspection report and the instant gratification there helped speed along my real estate transaction. Radon testing also proved invaluable and I highly recommend it if you are buying a house.

He inspected a home for us that we loved, and sadly during his inspection found way too many things wrong with the home. Most of the things he discovered were not required to be looked into for a home inspection. He went above and beyond those requirements and we were so thankful that he did, otherwise we would have ended up with a home that required way too many fixes. About a month later we had Justin inspect another home for us and he gave it an enthusiastic stamp of approval. He wrote a great inspection report for us and we were able to communicate clearly with the seller the items that needed to be fixed. Justin even went above and beyond AGAIN to communicate directly with the seller about things that needed fixing and suggestion for the best way to fix them. Thank you Justin and Nickelsen Home Inspections for helping us find our dream home in Vancouver!!

We have used Nickelsen for 2 home inspections. Both times they have helped us avoid SERIOUS issues with the houses we were considering to buy. They present the information in a manner that allows us to make educated decisions on how to move forward in the home purchase process. They literally saved us from ourselves on one home and helped us make a much wiser purchase on another. I've always said you should never buy a home without getting an inspection, now I say you should never buy a home without getting NICKELSEN to inspect it!

We have looked at several homes in the last 8 years, and had several other inspecters. No one even came close to the kind of thorough professional inspection done by Justin. His fees are minor compared to the expense and grief his thoroughness saved us. We would never even consider any other inspecter! We highly recommend him to anyone and everyone including friends, relatives, and in one case even a stranger. Truly world class all the way. Every business should be this good.Thanks!

Justin is phenomenal to work with. He was thorough, considerate, and friendly. His report was detailed and concise, and during the inspection he made sure that I knew exactly what was going on. I never felt like he was rushing to get done, and he never made me feel like I was asking too many questions. He took time to explain what he saw and, more importantly, he explained the process. World class service and excellent presentation. The only inspector I'll be recommending.

Talk about thorough. I was extremely impressed with Justin's professionalism and his willingness to take the time to explain the process of the inspection every step of the way. I'm sure I made him late for other appointments, but he always had time to answer my questions when something irregular came up.

His report was again, very thorough and well written. Instead of check off boxes like I've seen used on past inspections, Justin writes everything out about the internal/external condition of the home.

Would recommend this company in a heartbeat.

I would, without any hesitation, recommend Nickelsen Home Inspections to any homebuyer. A few months ago, we made our first offer on our first home. Justin performed the inspection and he did a great job of explaining everything he was doing and he was very patient with our questions. That home ended up not being the one for us, but one month later, we found another worth looking into. Nickelsen Home Inspections was brought in again, Justin and Kurt were both there to offer their expertise and I couldn??t be more thankful. They have both gone out of their way to make sure we understand exactly what we are getting into. Also, after every inspection, we have received a very detailed report on their findings with pictures to clarify so there is no question about the condition of the home. Call on Nickelsen Home Inspections if you want a trustworthy, well-informed start to your new home.

I have been referring Nickelsen Home Inspections for almost 4 years. I have found them to be professional, fair and honest. With everyone looking for the best bang for their buck, I can assure them they won't regret choosing Nickelsen. I would certainly use them for my own home.

Not having bought a new house in several years, this was my first experience with having a home inspection. I wasn't sure what to expect, but having remodeled professionally for several years I knew I could tell what was basically going on with this older home I was looking to purchase.

When Justin showed up he explained how it all worked, what he would look at, how far an inspection went and who to see if I wanted to take it further; if I wanted a mold or radon test preformed, for example.

He was clear, concise and completely through in his inspection - taking over four hours to carefully check out this place from top to bottom. He produced a report, about thirty pages long, with carefully taken photos of any problems he discovered.

As a result of Justin's professional and painless (for me; not him) examination, we were able to see and present all the things that needed to be fixed or accounted for in our offer to the seller.

I would use him again without any reservation and would also recommend him to anyone who wanted to know exactly the shape that house that they are thinking of buying is actually in.
Thanks Justin for all your good work.

I would definitely recommend Nickelsen Home Inspections for future home buyers. My husband and I are first time home buyers and feel very lucky to have chosen such a great inspector. Justin was extremely thorough in his inpection process and explained all of his work in detail. He provided an on the spot report with pictures. With his help and advice we were able to get repairs (fixing of siding and crawl space) done to our house (all paid for by the sellers) and obtain a warranty for the repairs. Justin was extremely pro-active, and at one point even talked to the owner of the company making the repairs, in order to make sure the repairs were performed properly. My husband and I will definitely be referring his services to our family and friends.

I would highly recommend Nickelsen Home Inspections, LLC. As a first time home buyer Pillar To Post inspected our home and their report doesn't even compare to how thorough Nickelsen Home Inspections put into the inspection of our home. Justin answered all our questions and explained the answers in detail, and also gives us a report with detailed pictures so we know exactly what is wrong and how to fix the problem.
Thanks NHI, LLC

Justin provided an excellent and thorough inspection, complete with a detailed report and pictures. He was professional and his work was professional and timely. We were so impressed, we sought out his business for inspecting a second house!

This was our first home inspection ever for my boyfriend and I so we weren't really sure what to expect. As soon as we met Justin, I knew that we were in great hands. He was very down to earth and laid back which relieved your concerns and relaxed the whole process. He answered all of our questions and was VERY thorough (a good thing) with the entire inspection overall. At the end, we were given a complete package including the entire inspection report broken down by individual sections, photos and recommendations. This took the guesswork out of the identifying the major and minor opportunities which was very appreciative.. A+!

We recommend Justin and team for any inspection in the future, we will definitely use again. Thanks Nickelsen Inspections!!

Thanks again!!

As a real estate agent in Vancouver, I know how important it is to surround myself with a team I can trust. When recommending Inspection Services to my buyers I ALWAYS recommend Nickelsen Home Inspections.

I know I can trust Justin to do a complete, detailed inspection of every property in a timely manner. I feel completely comfortable sending my clients to meet Justin at the house because he always takes the time to go over his report and any inspection items - explaining to the client in plain english any items found during the walk through. Plus, Justin follows up with a detailed report that includes color photos and a detailed summary.

The service doesn't stop there! Whenever I have questions or need referrals for repair - I know I can call or email Nickelsen Home Inspections and get a quick response.

I go farther then just recommending Nickelsen Home Inspections. I also called Justin when I was looking to purchase a home myself. It was Justin's inspection that found recalled plumbing on one of the potential purchases! I can't say enough good things about Justin and the guys at Nickelsen.

I would highly recommend Nickelsen Home Inspections!

I recently hired nickelsen to perform a home inspection for me and although I was aprehensive about it, once I met justin face to face I was instantly releaved. he was down to earth, friendly and best of all strait to buisness. As a first time home buyer I feel justins exstensive knowledge of home inspections is something every home buyer should have access to before purchasing a home. (there were several items I dought I would have found or recongnized prior to them becoming big money issues) Its the only way to know what your realy buying. and who deosnt want to know that? Thanks justin

My husband and I have nothing but the highest regard for Nickelsen Home Inspections and have used them for 2 homes. People who think that because they buy a new home, they don't need an inspection are wrong! In our brand new home Justin found several issues, the worst one being our sewer lines were going up in several places instead of down, the way they should be going! The poor plumbing continued but finally in the end we found someone to do the job correctly. All total Justin was here 4 times for one house. Each time he was very timely, personable,thorough, helpful and in our case extremely patient. We also used him on an older home that we needed to make a rental. If you can believe it our sewer lines were going up in a couple of places again (as well as a few other minor issues)! Fortunately, we had finally found a good plumber. I can't say enough good things about Justin and his great attention to details, he saved us today from future problems that could have really caused great damage.

Buying your first home is an exciting and, at times, daunting experience. The professionals at Nickelsen Home Inspections immediately put me at ease during the inspection of the home. The report that I received from NHI was extremely complete and thorough and presented in a easily understandable format.

Justin was fantastic, after the inspection he sat down with me and explained what he found in plain English and recommended various solutions based on the best practices that only years of experience can provide. Since purchasing the home I have followed some of these suggestions and couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you so much for making my first home buying experience enjoyable.

I found the service you provided to be friendly, helpful, informative, knowledgeable, efficient, and skilled. I was impressed that I left the inspection with a hard color copy and electronic copy of the report! Wow!

Justin, you were simply great to work with. I had a list of questions to ask, and before I could, you asked me for the list and made sure everything was answered and I understood. I really appreciate your thoughtful and courteous service. It was actually a fun and informative experience and I was happily surprised by that. I would definitely recommend your service, or use you again.
