"I needed a pre-offer home inspection done within 48 hours before offers were being reviewed and my real estate agent recommended Bruce. Bruce made himself available on very short notice and allowed me to walk through with him during the inspection. He took the time to answer my (many) dumb questions and explained everything in detail. He also finished the full inspection report with photos and videos later that evening which allowed me to feel comfortable making an offer which waived inspection contingency. I would recommend Bruce to anyone in a heartbeat."

"We had the inspection done in November, but the sale didn't close until May (so I apologize for the late review!). Bruce did a very thorough job on the inspection; I haven't had any extra "surprises" show up since taking possession of the house, even though it sat vacant for another six months after he looked it over. The information he provided has been a huge help in prioritizing forthcoming repairs and improvements. On the day of the inspection, he showed up early and had already inspected the roof and exterior of the house by the time I showed up. A real pro, and a nice guy as well!"

"Bruce was very thorough in the inspection. He explains everything he is looking at and patiently answers any and all questions that a new home buyer has about maintenance and repair of the house. We have used him twice now and been very satisfied both times."

"I highly recommend Bruce for any home inspection. He was prompt, friendly, and very thorough. He was very patient and took the time to answer all of our questions. His inspection helped put our mind at ease during the home buying process. His report is clear and concise and clearly laid out in an easy to understand manner. I can't recommend Bruce enough. I don't honestly know what other inspectors charge, but the price we paid with Bruce was a bargain for the piece of mind we received in return."

"Bruce H. was professional and conducted his inspections in a timely manner. Even on short notice, Bruce was able to arrange an inspection for my home that was expected to have mold. Through text and emails Bruce was able to arrange, conduct, and review over the results within a week. I do also appreciate that he conducts his inspection by social distancing practices. Friendly service. Will use his services in the future."

"When you are considering who to pick for your Home Inspector, the choice is easy with Bruce. Because he is willing to crawl into these dark creepy places that you don't want to touch, and takes clear photos so you know what he is talking about in plain English when you go over his findings together - because of this and because of his skill level with all kinds of fixing things - he makes it EASY to understand what is really going on with this property and you can clearly make decisions about what to do. And that's what you really want, right? To get the data by a qualified Home Inspector to help you figure out your best move. Plus - his report is SO easy to read on your phone. So the convenience level is superb. That is just added bonus to an already over qualified Home Inspector. That is what you are getting: an over qualified home inspector in Bruce. Just use him."

"Our agents contacted Bruce on a Sunday, he was able to inspect the house on Monday, and had the full report done for us that night! It's nice to find people who are timely and helpful, especially when it comes to an already stressful home buying process. He explained everything, took pictures and made realistic recommendations so we could make educated decisions. The online report was very detailed and easy to understand. Highly recommend Bruce!"

"I am currently in California and purchased a home in Bremerton Washington. Bruce was heaven sent, our agent recommended him and I'm so glad she did. He is so professional, thorough, detailed. I didn't have to be there and received the most thorough explanations, videos when needed, one could not ask for more. I highly recommend Bruce at Local Inspections to everyone and especially out of state clients. The price was great. I had a report sent to me the evening of the home inspection. In the past I have waited up to 3 days for the report. Thank you Bruce, I wish you continued success with Local Inspections!!"

He was patient and took the time to answer any questions I had, and at the end of the inspection he went through his pictures and explained everything that was going in the report and why. An absolute professional. Thank you Bruce!"

I would recommend Bruce and Local Inspections for any real estate transaction that comes my way. His knowledge of every bit of the process is amazing, and it shines through when you have questions about how to proceed later. Prices are fair as well. He is truly great at his job and it shows."

"We are about to buy our very first home and know very little about the process. Bruce was our inspector - he was extremely friendly and thorough. He was also great at explaining both the inspection process and what he was looking for/testing for/finding during the inspection. We never felt rushed or like we were asking dumb questions. His online scheduling and reporting tool is easy to navigate, payment was very simple and straightforward, and everything happened promptly. We would absolutely recommend Bruce and Local Inspections to anyone buying a home or in need of inspection services."
