"No Surprises"
After 30 years in the same home, my wife and I are planning to downsize by selling our house next year. In order to get ready for that sale, we engaged Bob to conduct a "seller's inspection" so that we will have no surprises when we put our home on the market. We are glad that we did. Bob conducted a thorough review of the most important systems in the house and prepared a well-illustrated, easy to follow report that was comprehensive and to the point. Fortunately, we had just a few items to address and we should have those ready when we put the house up for sale. A couple of items were quick and easy fixes that Bob taught me how to do myself with some inexpensive supplies. We would give Bob and Total Picture Home Inspections our highest recommendation.

It was a pleasure working with Bob. He is knowledgeable, engaging, and educating, but what makes Bob exceptional is the care he exhibits throughout. The experience with Bob was one of thoroughness and a completeness. He is a consummate professional who does not take any shortcuts and advises his client at every turn. Bob Lam enjoys my highest recommendation for home inspection.

At the suggestion of our selling agents, we had Bob come and complete a home inspection of our property prior to putting it on the market. Bob did a thorough job and identified a few things that might have popped up on a buyer’s inspection, which we chose to remedy before the house went on the market. The eventual buyers chose to waive the home inspection as part of the sales contract; however, we learned from our old neighbors that the buyers did have a home inspector come in after the sale went through. Much to the new home owners' delight, their inspector was unable to find anything in need of repair aside from replacing still-functioning (but old) gutters. While we did a great job maintaining the home while we were there, we believe having Bob inspect the home before it went on the market contributed to our success on the a fast and lucrative sale. We would highly recommend Bob to anyone in need of a home inspection!

Bob, I want to thank you for the wonderful home inspection work you performed for us recently. I appreciate your very meticulous approach and thorough explanation of all tasks performed, the standard against which you assess condition, and recommendations for remediating any shortfalls discovered. Your approach was very helpful and allowed me to make timely improvements to ensure every aspect of our home was ready for showing by our realtor. The follow-up, adjustments to observations based on remediation steps, etc. all give evidence of your interest to help us ensure our home was ready for sale. I would heartily endorse you and recommend you to any homeowner looking for a thorough inspection. Without a doubt, you provide a 5-star service.

We're glad with the result, especially a quick sale. Your expert home inspection definitely helped with the sale. Out of 3 contracts, not one was submitted with a home inspection contingency. I appreciate the time and care you took working with us.

"5 of 5 stars"
Bob inspected a house we were planning to sell. He took the time to walk us through each aspect of the inspection, ensuring that we fully understood both the positive aspects of the property and any potential issues that needed attention. We received a very detailed report shortly after the inspection. We appreciate his expertise, friendliness, honesty and responsiveness and would recommend Total Picture Home Inspections very highly.
