      Joe K was exactly what we were looking for in an inspector, knowledgeable, timely and submitted a very useful and easy-to-digest inspection report.

      Southern Home Inspection Services was recommended to me by my buyer's agent through a referral form the inspection service he typically uses in another part of town. I had done a little research in case I needed to find my own inspection company, and I was pleased to find the SHIS was my top pick from independent research and also referred by another firm. My inspector was Jody Von Ostrand, who proved to be professional, knowledgeable and quite entertaining as we were well matched in temperament and sense of humor. Jody has performed two inspections for me now (I went back to him for a second home inspection) and both times I was impressed with the thoroughness of the inspection, the promptness of the written report, and the overall review at the end of the inspection. In booking both times, I spoke with Tona Dobson in the office. She was a delight to work with and handled scheduling perfectly. I heartily recommend Jody and Tona, and Southern Home Inspection Services for your inspection needs.

      We were very pleased with the job performed by our inspector, Lee Garrett. He was extremely thorough in his inspection of the home we are purchasing, and after he was finished, he fully explained everything on his report. He showed us the coinciding pictures he took with the things written in his report, and then, walked with us through the house to show us exactly where everything written up was located. He was extremely patient with all of our questions and answered each one to our satisfaction. I would highly recommend Lee Garrett with Southern Home Inspections!

      We meet with Jody Van Ostrand on Sunday to conduct our home inspection. Jody was a very knowledgeable and friendly inspector. He reviewed and explained every concern that was pointed out in detail. He offered great advice on home maintenance and upkeep of certain items. The inspector welcomed all of our questions and answered them all throughout the inspection and in conclusion of the inspection. Jody was very professional and we felt very confident that the inspection was done to the best of his ability. We especially loved the fact that we were able to get a copy of the inspection report along with very descriptive photos on the same day of the inspection. We would definitely refer Southern Home Inspection services to all of our friends and family that are in need of a good home inspection company. In addition, Tona has great customer service as well!

      Lee called me ahead of time to review any specific concerns we might have, which we did. He emailed us a detailed report with pictures, and then he called us the very evening after he did the inspection and he reviewed his findings. Our friend who was present at the inspection added that he was very kind and thorough. This is the second inspection Lee has done for us and we could not be happier. Thank you so much for having such a great employee and a responsive customer service aspect to your business. It means a lot to us and we would highly recommend your company to others.

      We had our framing and final inspections scheduled with Joe. He was friendly and professional. He conducted a thorough inspection and provided the written results on the same day. He also gave me a lot of advice on home maintenance and care during the inspection. This advice has been invaluable. Two months after the final inspection and the closing on our house I reached back out to Joe on a Sunday via email with some questions on building codes. Joe responded to my questions on the same day. Again, this was a Sunday so Joe not only provided answers long after the inspection, but he provided them on a Sunday. I highly recommend Southern Home Inspection Services. They are experts and provide great customer service.

      Southern Home Inspections did a great job! Joe was there on time and did a very thorough inspection. Afterwards he went through everything he found and explained what needed to be fixed. We are first time home-buyers so we had a lot of questions regarding the things that he found and he answered all of them with great detail. Would definitely recommend him to anyone needing an inspection.

      We had a home inspected by Joe this past Friday in Jasper, Georgia. Joe was friendly, professional, experienced and helped us by walking us through everything he was doing. We will be having another home inspection soon, and we wouldn't want any other company or inspector doing the job! Thank you again!

      I am a first time homebuyer, and was nervous about having the inspection. I called a trusted friend who just purchased his home in 2012 and asked if he had any recommendations for a home inspector. He referred me to Lee Garrett who gave him a thorough inspection of his home and whom he was completely satisfied with. When I called S.H.I.S, the secretary was extremely nice and answered all my questions. I was quoted a price, and had several reminder emails sent to me. Lee Showed up on time, answered all my questions, and did a very thorough inspection. Lee crawled to the back the attic and found a spot in the roof that was impossible to see from the ground. He later took out his ladder and documented pictures of the spot. Within hrs. I was sent an email with my inspection and pictures. I would recommend S.H.I.S and Lee Garrett to anyone in need of a home inspection!

      I bought my house almost one year ago. The inspection was very thorough! However what was amazing was the service AFTER. On move-in day, It was August 1st and VERY hot and the a/c was not working. I am a single mom and was alone and had no idea what to do.Then I remembered I had the home inspector's cell number Lee Garette, saved in my phone. I called and he thought back to the the inspection and instructed me to check the circuit breaker - told me where it was and how to check if it was on or off - I flipped the switch on and I had A/C! Then, months later, as winter came on sooner than expected there was a freeze warning. I knew I had to turn off the outside water spigots. For a second time I called thinking this time, he won't answer! But he did and helped me again to find the outside water shut off valve and turned it off so the pipes would not freeze. THAT IS SERVICE!

      I am a first time home buyer and going through the process can be confusing as well as frustrating. In the process of ordering the inspection, Southern Home Inspection Services helped immensely. They were very friendly, accommodated me as much as they could and really knew how to deliver great customer service. While on site performing the inspection, Joe Kelcourse was very friendly and honest about the inspection. He did a great job making sure I understood the issues before we left the site and got the report to me as soon as possible. If I need another inspection, Southern Home Inspection Services would be my go to as well as a recommendation to family and friends in their need.

      The prospect of putting a house on the market in today's economy filled me with dread until I contacted Southern Home Inspections. Tona Dobson was so friendly, personable, and professional that I felt immediately at ease. I was pleased and surprised that my inspection was scheduled for the next day at a time that was convenient for me. The inspector, Jody Van Ostrand was prompt, professional, and very knowledgeable. I enjoyed meeting him and learning more about my home as we walked together through the inspection process. He was straightforward and candid in helping me prioritize the issues I should address before putting the house on the market. Exactly what I was hoping for! The completed report was in my hands by 10 pm that evening and included a coherent summary as well as photos and a thorough itemization of issues. I sincerely appreciate the time and attention Jody devoted to my home inspection. I now feel much more confident in making decisions about necessary repairs to expedite the selling process. I would highly recommend this company to anyone considering selling or buying a home.

Lee not only performed his evaluation with great attention to detail, but he also showed me exactly what I needed to be aware of and what needed immediate attention to what could wait. This was my 4th home inspection and Lee was the most thorough of all. Thank you Lee and SHIS!

His report was 65+ pages, included detailed pictures, and documented even the smallest details. You could tell he really spent a great deal of time looking in every crack and crevice in the house. This is our third inspection during our time as home buyers and Southern Home Inspection blows the rest away. They service is well worth the money!

Jody was very willing to do what it takes to get the job done, including working on Christmas Eve. He was very thorough on inspection, and we felt very secure in making the decision on our retirement cabin. He communicates very well, taking extra time to explain any issues he found, and did a great job for us. Thank you Southern Home Inspections and thanks to you.

The company is military friendly and I do recommend their service to anyone looking for complete customer satisfaction.

      We were extremely satisfied with Southern Home Inspection Services. They were courteous and professional starting with the phone call to set up the inspection all the way through the final report and follow ups. Sheila was great in explaining the type of inspection I needed and setting it up. Joe conducted the inspection. He was on time and very thorough. He also took the time to explain what was being inspecting and pointing out both the good and the bad. We will definitely come back the next time we need a home inspection and will refer Joe and Southern Home Inspection Services to family and friends.

      We had our new home inspected by Southern Home Inspection Services at the suggestion of our Realtor, based on of the quality of their inspections. We were VERY pleased with our inspector. He did the inspection on a day that was threatening rain, and he arrived early to get the inspection of the outside of the home completed before the rain started. He then went through each room in the house including the attic, and took pictures of each and every issue. He waited for our Realtor to arrive so he could go over the results, and he turned around a VERY extensive report, including pictures of everything covered in the report, within just a couple of hours. This inspection reassured us that we're buying a home that's in good shape, and it also gave us the opportunity to work with the seller to repair the items the inspector suggested to have repaired. Thank you!

Jody made it clear from the beginning that he was there to provide me detailed information about the property that would assist me in making a good decision. He was very clear in his summary and the written report was very thorough. I have not used an inspector before but would surely use you any time I need one.

      Being a first time home buyer in a southern state has my husband and myself quite turned around. Nothing was like it was the first time we bought a home, so needless to say we were worried about our trained eye vs a professional. Jody Van Ostrand was amazing! Not only was he open and honest with us about everything, but he was quite entertaining as well! He took us through step by step and taught us all sorts of things we will need to know about our home. We could tell right away that he also truly enjoyed his job! Thank you so much to Southern Home Inspection for all of your help in making this process as smooth as possible.

      As an out of town buyer, I unfortunately I chose a different company to do my home inspection to save $100. I am paying the price for the poor inspection the other company did and the subsequently hired contractor who has ripped me off for the necessary work. I have turned to Southern Home Inspection for advice, despite not being a client, and I my faith in Southern charm and hospitality has been restored by Sheila, who is warm and compassionate and Joe who is honest and knowledgeable. If I ever buy another home in Georgia, my first call will be to Southern Home Inspection! Wish there were more stars to give you. Thank you.

      I am extremely satisfied with Mr. Garrett's work. He was very detailed and thorough during his inspection. My real estate agent was impressed with how thorough his work was and how the report covered all the possible issues with the house. He took the time to explain all those findings with me and even walked around the house to point them to me personally. He was patient and very professional with all my questions. I feel that I will be making an informed decision with the purchase of the house. I would Highly recommend Mr Garrett and your company to anyone looking for an inspector that will provide them with a complete picture of the house they are looking into purchasing and the current or potential issues facing us as homebuyers. I do realize that this was a visual inspection only and there are certain things that could not been seen or predicted. But nevertheless he made sure to point this fact to me and the limitations of his inspection. I still feel that he did his utmost to inspect the house thoroughly and document everything he could see. I will certainly recommend your company to my family and friends.

      We have to get a number of inspections done, and are always too happy when our clients pick Southern Home Inspection Services. The biggest advantage we find in using them is their very realistic summaries. It is easy to see what our clients really need to address. Some inspections send a 40 or 50 page report, and you have to dig to find what is really important, and what is basically minimal. Also, we have always been able to get the report back the same day. This is vitally important when you are running on deadlines.

      I have used SHI for several years and my clients have always been very happy with their services. As a long time Realtor, I have seen the inspections which other agents have used when I was the listing agent and the thoroughness and professionalism of SHI is unparalleled. They take the time to go over the inspection issues on site with my clients and myself and that just gives everyone great reassurance. The one time I tried someone else, I was disappointed and came right back to SHI as I feel they are the best out there for my clients.

      Southern Home was asked to provide a very quick turn around and they did so because I only had 2 days to find a home and wow did they save me from making a huge mistake. Found another home and Southern Home was there at 9 AM the next morning - this time we found a winner - bought a home in 2 days - WOW.

      Inspection report was very thorough and completely understandable. All points of FHA Hazard and Safety was completely and accurately addressed as well as the recommended cures. I wish every inspection I reviewed was this professionally done and concise.

      First of all, Tona was so very helpful and kind when I called to make the home inspection appointment. It is hard to adequately express how much easier a process she made this for me (I am a nervous first time home buyer). Tona led me through all of what I needed to do, what she would be emailing to me and what I should expect. She set up an appointment for me right away, knowing I would be in my short little due diligence time frame. And best of all, most of all, she is so warm and sincere and so kind and lovely a lady that I felt more like I was chatting with a friend than making an appointment for a service. Tona is delightful. I just love her! Now...to the gentlemen. Jody (hopefully I am spelling his name correctly, if not...sincere apologies) was a doll.; always happy to answer my one million questions and explain exactly what he was doing and looking at and why. He helped me understand things about electricity and conduit coverage and wiring. I will long benefit from the information he gave me! Andbest of all I think, has the truly positive way of looking at everything. It was so refreshing and appreciated! Anthony was beyond wonderful. In the couple of hours I spent walking around that house with him I learned more about how things work, what is and is not a good idea for a home, what to do, what to look at, what to look for and how to resolve issues than I have learned in my many years of consulting expert repair people and books and do it yourself programs. I was awed by all the information. It was so obvious to me that he really knows what he is doing. I was so grateful to have him there. And he was a pleasure to talk with. He was able to look at pipes and things in the house and literally recreate some of how the house had been configured (for lack of a better word) in the past and what changes had been made. It was so interesting and amazing. I will never forget it. My whole experience with everybody at your company has been truly a pleasure and so helpful to me. It is such a blessing to deal with such good and honest people. I appreciate each of you so very much!

      The inspection report that we received from your inspector is undeniably the most professional, thorough, organized and timely inspection report that we have ever received! We are immensely satisfied with the services we have received and hope to be able to utilize your services again when needed. Once we are finally moved to GA, we will highly recommend your services to anyone, particularly the other people from our company that will be transferring to this area.

      Your inspector was great and answered all of my silly questions with patience and thoroughness. If anything, not only did your inspector pick up on a few important flaws but the biggest thing I received was peace of mind. I don't think you can put a price

      Hi Guys, at first I was hesitant about having an inspection done thinking that all was well via my untrained eyes, but after my meeting with Bobby, boy was I wrong. He uncovered things that I never even thought about. I have had inspections done several years ago but not one like this. Getting the professionally printed report on the spot is such a huge plus too. You guys are running a very professional, courteous and knowledgeable operation. I will be calling upon your services again in a few more weeks because I have since changed my mind on the purchase of the house that was recently inspected. Not because of the inspection report but for other personal reasons. My hat is off to you and I will definitely refer you guys to friends and family members. Thanks again.
