"I wanted to thank you for doing such an exceptional job as our home inspector. I was blown away by your professionalism, vast knowledge, and attention to detail during and after our inspection. I appreciate how extremely thorough you were during our home inspection. Also, thank you for provided us with such a detailed inspection which outlined every aspect of our new home using photos, diagrams, detailed descriptions and instructions. Additionally, thank you for providing us with our inspection write up so quickly. Your website serves as a tremendous resource and I find your website easy to use when accessing our home inspection file. Your inspection serves as a tremendous resource for us to use in maintaining health house, which I find to be extremely valuable as a new homeowner."
am so glad we chose you as our home inspector. You were flexible
in setting up a meeting time and date for our inspection, in addition to
your affordable pricing. I would, and will, refer you to all my
friends, family, and anyone I know of that is planning on buying a home.
Your service as our home inspector defines “professionalism” at its
best. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Thanks again for your part in this!"
While the findings of your inspection resulted in us exercising our right to cancel the purchase agreement, we are very glad that we were able to do so instead of purchasing a home that would have required so much time, money, and repairs/maintenance. Not only will we be passing your information onto some friends who are looking to purchase homes, but you will be hearing from us again in the very near future when we find another home that we would like to purchase.
Again, thank you for your services, and we will be in contact again soon!
You did a great job with the inspection. I thought it was awesome that not only did you tell me what was wrong, you told me the proper way to fix things. I have already given your card out to a few people and will be sure to recommend you to anyone I know who is looking for an inspection. Jessi and I are keeping one of your cards for ourselves in case we decide to move again (hopefully not for a while now). We might also contact you to come out every few years just to check on the house and point out anything we overlook.
Thanks again Eric!"
"I would like to comment on your professionalism. you were thorough and informative and kind and patient. I know when I move into this condo I will feel very comfortable and confident and not have to be too concerned about any Surprises. You covered everything from A to Z. Thank you for the follow up CD and home owner's manual. That was sort of the icing on my inspection cake. I do appreciate the time you spent doing the actual inspection and the patience in answering all of my questions.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to others and I will keep your number for any questions that may arise. Thank you kindly. God bless you!
you very much. You were awesome. I have already recommended you to a friend. I
told her how professional & honest you were.
best money I have ever spent!
"I cannot thank
you enough, for the complete and thorough job you did, with the
inspection of our impending home. You not only did an amazingly thorough
assessment, but you added a personnel and caring touch, due to the
history and specific character of our house. You also provided the
right amount of emphasis with regard to what were the most significant
items we should understand, and what work or improvements we should
consider in the near or long term. I learnt a great deal from you,
not only relative to current items to attend to, but what to look for
through time, For Mary and I, this inspection became our list of
"Things-to-Do", and it gives us great confidence, that we have
a complete and expert list as a foundation for this!! Actually,
while still in Germany, we are having work done to correct and improve
many of the items you recommended we attend to immediately, such as an
Electrical Distribution upgrade and HVAC equipment upgrade with added
return ducts for improved circulation.
is the third time that I am involved with home inspections. The third
time must be the charm since this time it was totally different. I was
actively involved in the inspections process from start to finish. Mr.
Batke was very professional, courteous and very details. He explained in
details what he will do prior to asking me for permission to go ahead
with the inspection. Mr. Batke went though every inch of the house
inside and out, he explained in details the conditions of everything, he
made suggestion on what must be done and he even suggested the time
frame that it must be done (his suggestion was based on the age of the
items he inspected). I am 100% satisfied with the job that Mr. Batke
performed and would strongly recommend all home buyers to use his
service. His service was a peace of mind that will be so invaluable in
many ways for many years to come, other than Mr. Batke, I think I know
more about the condition of the house than even its owners. Thank you
Mr. Batke for a job well done and for being so details in your
inspections and for being so attentive in serving my interest."
"I would like to extend this letter of recommendation in respect to the services provided by Independent Home Inspection. As a single mother I have called several inspectors in Livingston County, hoping for an honest and reliable person. Needless to say, I got lucky. IHIC exceeded my expectation. Eric is extremely detailed. He found things that my real estate person and contractor missed. As a result I asked the selling bank for price adjustment and they agree to reduce the purchase price by 4%. I saved thousands of dollars."
"I will use IHIC performance as a basis or model standard by which I will judge other contractors. IHIC’s performance has excelled in all categories, including customer contact, safety, adherence to schedule, and attention to detail and also of great importance, with price."
compelling is the depth of support in regard to recommendation and
concerns. Eric speaks the language of dedication, commitment and
customer care. Based on the above I would highly recommend IHIC on any
project requiring home inspection services."
was a wonderful inspector and my husband and I will recommend him
to anyone who is looking to buy a home. As a first time home buyer it
was really helpful to have someone walk through and explain what needs
to be fixed immediately and what can wait. He even caught things that a
city inspector missed. He was great, it was a pleasure and the
inspection was very thorough."
were very satisfied with the service of IHIC. The inspection was very
detailed and we were informed immediately while walking through if
something was questionable. The report is a full detailed lengthy
report. We were surprised at the detail contained in the final report.
We would highly recommend Eric Batke for any home inspection. As a
matter of fact we have already given his number out to some
you so much for the detailed inspection. We really appreciate how
you explained everything and that you were so thorough. Thank you
again, we will recommend you to anyone we know that needs an
did two inspections for me, each of which was done very thoroughly and
professionally. I felt that he really cared about my safety and
security in the house. He provided me with information about
passing codes and also very practical advice that will benefit me as I
live in and maintain my new home. His advice was well researched
and spanned a wide variety of topics, some of which were very specific
to the period and materials of my particular home."
