      I am completely satisfied with the service I received from Southern Home Inspection Team. From the moment I picked up the telephone to the actual inspection of the home they gained my interest. Lee Garrett was my inspector. He was very respectful and helpful. The service he provided was outstanding. He gave me vital information which I would never had even thought about pertaining to my future home. 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!

      I was very pleased with how quickly you were able to schedule the inspection. 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.
