THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN HOME INSPECTION

Reviews_by_listen360_large

We completed a Buyer’s Review of a Home Inspection Report with Walter Collodel. This is our first house so we were a bit anxious about maintenance and repairs. Walter was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and thorough. He took the time to explain everything to us in detail and provided really solid practical advice. He went above and beyond. The Report itself is also a great resource and reference with clear photos and diagrams. We had been house hunting for a while and have seen a lot of home inspection reports during our property search. This Report was head and shoulders above the rest. Can’t recommend more!

Thank you for your great and informative home inspection. Lee David couldn't have been more helpful during the whole inspection and gave us the piece of mind to proceed with the purchase. Thank you very much Lee David and the Carson Dunlop Team!

The fact that they automatically registered all the appliances with Recallchek on the same visit as the inspection is amazing!

Great service! Was referred to us by our agent.I really commend one of your inspectors Hal Woolley for doing the inspection of our new home. He was very informative and knowledgeable. He had great attention to detail. He walked us through step by step on things we should monitor, the do's and dont's in the household even though he was busy inspecting our house at the same time. It felt like a learning curve for us especially I do not know much about what to look for within a home. He made sure to address critical issues in our next home and provided us professional solutions and recommendations. He readily answered our questions as well and made us involve with the entire inspection process. Definitely outstanding service and love love the household bible book that he gave me as it provided me more information on how to maintain and take care of our home. Very detailed inspection report! plus plus 10 for great service! More than what we expected ! highly recommended!

Prompt and knowledgeable home inspectors. Have used them a few times in the past and will continue using them going forward. Reports were turned around within the day.

I've had the pleasure of the assistance from Carson Dunlop, twice before. Recently, in the throws of a bidding war, my real-estate agent suggested we wave an inspection in order to have a better chance at the bid. I told him "no, we may need to find another place, because I won't go ahead without Carson Dunlop going through it first."

The first line of my review; thank you, Josh Natovitch!I only put a review when I put a bad review if I receive poor service. This is because I customarily expect the service to be as good as the money you pay, and good service does not fundamentally require a review. But the service I recently received from Carson and Dunlop baffled me. I'd never seen someone who cares so much. Josh Natovitch, who performed the inspection, showed up just on time. He was a gentleman, professional, and extremely friendly. So I told him that we are first-time home buyers and don't have any experience with buying a house." But I didn't know that he would put on 3 hours of extensive course and explain to us every detail about the house, teach us how to take care of the house, and come to the attic and explain every dang detail.I am not sure if this is how everyone in this company performs, but if I want to use their service ever again, I will explicitly ask for Josh, and I know I will not be disappointed.This service is what I call "a service well worth."

Carson Dunlop is an excellent home inspection firm offering complete assistance with referring and arranging other forms of inspections such as WETT. As a long term Realtor I am always thrilled to recommend my clients to Carson Dunlop when they require a Home Inspector of any style of home, industrial or commercial property. There is no risk level to my recommendation because I have no doubt Carson Dunlop will provide excellent honest and accurate representation. Hal Wooley is incredibly efficient, great personality and definitely a Master in his field. This expertise is extremely important to my Clients. My Clients and I will definitely sleep easier knowing that they had all of the facts to make the right decisions for their purchase, home renovation and or/additions prior to them taking actions to finalize their Agreement of Purchase and Sale or any other contracts.

Very thorough and detailed, I don’t know how anyone would purchase a home without an inspection. We learned how to change the filter in the furnace, the age of it, and when it should be replaced. We learned where the shut offs were. Simple things like that save us from having to search for them. It’s nice to see what we had to do right away and what we would have to do in the years to come, it gives you an idea of how much you’ll be spending to maintain the home in the next 1-10 years, so there are no surprises.

I've been dealing with the folks at Carson Dunlop for over 10 years now. I have had nothing but great service from them in every transaction and they always manage to exceed my expectations. I refer other professionals whenever I have an opportunity and they are always thankful. Well done!

Pre-purchase inspection. Also, he found @$300 in deficiencies which we had seller remove from purchase price so the the report cost was cut by %50.

Both my home and business properties were inspected by Carson Dunlop. The inspection reports were very thorough yet easy to read. CD also provided me with a historical review of my commercial property and neighbourhood; information I would have never thought to search for on my own.The Inspector reviewed the issues (and we had some) and discussed my options for repair and cost. This helped me to renegotiate the purchase price with the seller. Six years after purchase, a leak developed in my basement on the adjoining side with my neighbour. I reached out to Carson Dunlop and at no extra charge, they helped determine the problem was associated with my neighbour’s property. Their recommendations saved me time and money making them truly a partner I can rely on time and time again.I strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a home inspection.

I have used Carson Dunlop many, many times over the years both with my Buyer Clients and my Seller Clients. They provide predictably good quality, professional Inspections and thorough Reports. As well, they are always willing to discuss their Report not only with the Client, but also others interested in the property when I have had a pre-Listing Inspection. Their name is synonymous with quality & reliability. When you have a Carson Dunlop Inspection, then you have peace of mind.

I have had nothing but the greatest experiences with Carson Dunlop over the past 30+ years and many, many inspections. They are extremely knowledgeable and conscientious.On those rare occasions when there was a problem, usually due to the inspectors not having X-ray vision or outside the scope of the inspection they were very quick to offer a solution even years later.I will never have anyone but Carson Dunlop do an inspection for me.

I used them to inspect a home I was buying. The inspection was done by a gentleman name Jim Gibson. He was great! Super knowledgeable, took his time and checked out the home. I loved that he didn't rush and went above and beyond with explanation. Hard to find service like this nowadays IMO. If you don't want to stress or second guess your choice I would go with Carson Dunlop

Engineer Gordon Mathieu, with Carson Dunlop, recently inspected a house we had put an offer on. Gordon was extremely professional. He did not rush through the inspection or his verbal explanations of the intricate electrical, plumbing and heating systems. Gordon has years of experience and it shows in the quality of his work and his great communication skills. It was a pleasure working with him.

I have dealt with Carson Dunlop on many occasions over the past 25 years. They have always been consummate professionals. I have recommended them to family members, friends and business associates and have never received anything but thanks and positive comments. There is a good reason why they have endured and flourished in a challenging industry.

Sheila was warm, cordial and efficient. A huge asset to your team. We did the home inspection before we confirmed an agent. Of the 3 agents we interviewed all 3 use and highly recommend Carson & Dunlop.

I've done a lot of work with Gordon Mathieu and I've always had very good service. He's professional, very knowledgeable and he explains everything clearly to my clients, he puts them at ease. By the time the inspection is done, my clients feel they understand the property they are about to buy. That's very important to me. The rest like the call back on the appliances, the waste pipe inspection are very nice to have too.

I dealt with Michael on the phone lines to book everything up, and he was AMAZING. Very hands-on, friendly, caring, and informative. Good customer service is very rare to find these days, so it was very nice and refreshing. Made me feel very positive about Carson Dunlop as a company. Our inspector (Walter) was also wonderful, detail-oriented, and a good guy. The house deal didn't go through due to the inspection, and they really helped us through it. If the company is filled with people like Michael and Walter, will always use and highly recommend this company!

I have been priviliged to work with Julie Gates several times this year. Julie is really a wonderful asset: forthright, practical, intelligent, and solution oriented. She certainly knows what she's doing. Carson & Dunlop are lucky to have her.

Very impressed by how thorough my inspection was. My inspector took his time looking over the whole house and did not seem like he was just trying to get it done as fast as possible.

Josh Natovitch was gold! Knowledgeable and thorough beyond expectation! Absolutely amazing! He explained EVERYTHING to us as first time home buyers with such patience and elaboration that was absolutely exceptional! He went above and beyond what was required to help us have a more thorough understanding of the house we were buying. And the 50-page report he sent us within only a few hours was another surprise of the quality of the service we received from him. He helped us get rid of all of doubt we had about the house and because of him, we made our purchase with all the confidence on the planet! It was money WELL-SPENT because of him. Josh is highly recommended, and so is Carson Dunlop!

Very detailed and very knowledgeable inspector. Specifically Hall Woolly is amazing. We have used him twice (we walked away from one property and the other we bought) and both times he has impressed us and our real estate agents.

We are so glad we took our agents suggestion to have Gordon Mathieu do our inspection on our less then perfect house before we listed. Our agent told us that he is the only inspector she would use when listing a house. Gordon knew exactly what to included about our home and what he did not have to include in the report. It made selling the house easy and we got over asking. We purchased a home which also has an inspection completed by a different inspector at Carson and Dunlop - it was tougher and more detailed on the home and outlined issues for us to address with the seller.

My buyer clients made an offer on the property that was conditional on a home inspection of the new build property. The new-build inspector from Carson Dunlop carried out an inspection of the house, some minor issues were noted and the sellers were able to resolve them. This process led my buyers to feel confident in waiving the inspection condition and purchasing their dream home. Very happy clients and agent. Thank you.
