Hi Kevin,

We were so impressed with the professionalism, efficiency, and skill with which you approached our home inspection. We’d like to say thanks again, and that we were glad to meet you. I’m glad I saved your name in my phone, when hearing about you a few years ago! Your professionalism was apparent, from seeing you come prepared (bringing and using all the right equipment to see all the nooks and crannies of the house), to appreciating your patience in answering our many questions and giving home maintenance tips while we followed you around. I literally would have taken notes, but you reminded us that you provide a home ownership how-to! Thank goodness. Next, we were happy to see how you complete your notes by dictation, and take photos, resulting in a thorough, systematic inspection, and inspection report provided same-day. The cost of your inspection is well founded for the time you spent in your assessment, your experience and skill to know what to look for, and the quality of the report you provided us. We will happily recommend your business to everyone we know!

S.W. & C.M.

Hi Kevin,
We can’t thank you enough for doing such a thorough inspection and being so patient and professional with us while we “shouldered” you during the process.
We gained quite a bit of knowledge ( I wish I knew even just 1/10 of your knowledge base) and sincerely appreciated the pride you take in doing not just a good job but an excellent job.
Scott and I were commenting the other day that we wish hiring good people was like when it was when we first started out 30 years ago in that you could count on people that you hired and you knew your money was being very well spent.  Unlike today, you are constantly being disappointed by various trades people and they really don’t seem to care except to get the cheque cashed as quickly as possible.
You certainly made us believe again that there still are exceptional people out there that do want to do a great job and know the importance of great customer service.
We truly can’t say enough about your work and your “inspection side manner” and will definitely be recommending you to everyone and all who need to get an inspection done.
I just wish you lived next door so I could bend you ear every now and then.
Again, thank you so very much.  We appreciate your thoroughness and a job very well done.  We quite enjoyed getting to know you.

We have had nothing but great experiences working Kevin Hawes of Assured Home Inspections. He is organized, professional, and thanks to him and his very thorough inspections, we were able to finally find the perfect home for our young family. Although we had to have three different homes inspected, we were happy to spend the money to get such important information. Kevin helped us in this process by providing us with the most detailed inspection reports we had ever seen. Thanks again Kevin, and we have already started recommending your services to our friends and family.

Kevin, as far as I am concerned you are the best in the business. You did such a great job for us, that when we met with the rep from the Home Builder, he agreed to rectify all of the concerns you found during the inspection under the 1 year new home warranty before we even moved in. We’ve been here for almost a year now, and we couldn’t be happier. You are so Thorough, and your report is so clear and easy to read that it makes the process a great experience. I can understand that because of this, you may not be a favorite among some realtors, but that is not my concern, as you are truly looking out for the best interests of your clients. Please keep up the good work, and I would be more than happy to refer you to anyone in the future.

Hello Kevin, Thank you very much for your services yesterday. I will definitely say that I am a very satisfied customer, and will recommend your services to anyone I know who is purchasing a home. I went through the Inspection Report with my wife and family, and they were also very impressed. Your Report has saved us a potential $30,000.00 in liabilities that we would have had no idea existed, based on our walkthrough of the property. I really feel like, after your Inspection, that we are truly informed about every aspect of the Condo Unit we are considering purchasing. Thank you again Kevin.

Sincerely,

R.L.

Hi Kevin,
I really wanted to thank you for doing such a thorough job on the inspection, I am sure it was not one of the easier ones you have had to do.
Furthermore, I wanted to compliment you on your professionalism as well as the quality and clarity of your report.  It was really impressive. Obviously trying to buy a place remotely is a challenge and having such a great resource as yourself is fundamental to such an endeavor. Whether or not we decide to buy, I am confident that you have provided the information I need to make an educated decision.
No doubt we will be suggesting you to our friends and using your services in the future.
Cheers,

A.P.

I am sending you a referral regarding Kevin Hawes of Assured Homes Inspections. Kevin had been referred to us previously when we were looking for a good home inspector. We had the pleasure of meeting Kevin for the first time on Wednesday March 18 2009 when he conducted a home inspection on a property we were in the process of purchasing.Kevin began his inspection at 8:00am and had completed all the outside work by the time we arrived at 9:30am. We spent the rest of the morning with him inside the house. We were impressed by his diligence and thoroughness. His knowledge of building structure, internal systems and codes of practice seemed comprehensive with an inside knowledge of historical problems that could possibly occur. He demonstrated the controls and settings for all the household heating and water systems giving advice and warnings as appropriate. I watched him investigate the evidence of a past water leak until he was satisfied that there was no present problem. He pointed out many things that were new to us. At the end of the hands-on inspection he checked the outside facing walls and ceiling with a very high tech and expensive infrared camera looking for the absence of insulation and any other anomalies. At about 12:15 we, (and our Realtor) sat down with Kevin who he gave us a comprehensive verbal report on the inspection. He followed closely his typed notes, printed moments before on a mobile printer. The notes also contained recommendations and requirements for us to follow, much of it recommendations to serve our own interests.We were given a binder containing information from house maintenance to a broad range costing scale for many projects.That evening I received an email containing a full inspection report with digital photographs highlighting the individual points found on the inspection.My wife and I can highly recommend Kevin Hawes of Assured Homes Inspections as a professional and worthwhile investment in home inspecting.

Regards,

I.N.

Hi Kevin,
Thanks for this! Great work! We did find the inspection process to be both informative, educational and most importantly thorough. So, only positive feedback from us – that’s probably the best $$$ we’ll spend on our house. We definitely won’t keep you a secret; we’ll tell everyone we know who needs a home inspection to go to you.
Cheers,
C.A and B.A.

Thanks so much Kevin. We both feel much more confident with our knowledge of our new home and wouldn’t have that without your help. You certainly gave us more value for our dollar than we could have expected and will certainly keep your info. on hand down the road for ourselves or any friends or family needing similar services. Thanks again.

Hello Kevin:
Again, many thanks for conducting the inspection in such a comprehensive and detailed way; and informative too. The photographs are most useful in illustrating your observations as described in the report and summary. And also in supporting your suggestions/recommendations. It was quite beneficial for us to have done business with you. All the very best to you and yours.
Sincerely,
D.C-F.

Kevin,

Thank you so much! It was a pleasure for me as well. I expected to be bored and exhausted, but I came away feeling empowered to be able to look after my own place properly. You are very good at explaining how things work.
I plan to put your business card on the intranet bulletin board at the company where I contract, along with a recommendation. That potentially reaches 700 people.
All the best,
G.D.

I had a fantastic experience with Assured Home Inspections. Very thorough and informative. I would recommend to anyone to use this company when buying a house!!!!!
Thank you for what I consider great customer service. You don’t find it to often.

Hi Kevin,  Thank you for your time and effort; we really appreciate them and it was a pleasure to meet you as well. My parents would like to extend a thank you as well.  I was unsure of what to expect with a home inspection and can say I was pleasantly surprised with it being such a positive experience. We were all very happy with the home inspection process, I appreciate you pointing out potential concerns with the house and was glad that overall it passed the home inspection, of course minus the concerns you had pointed out.  I would/will definitely recommend your services to anyone that is in need of a home inspection in the future. Thanks again Kevin,

L.L.

Kevin,
It was great meeting you, and thank-you for your professionalism dealing, with our home inspection. We appreciate the honest opinion you gave and thorough report. We know we have a lot of work ahead of us. Your report gave us a good feeling that the home we are about to buy, albeit old, has a solid base from which to work from.
Thanks again,

J.F. & C.F.

Hi Kevin,
I just wanted to thank you again for your help with our inspection (both of them ). I have purchased 7 homes over the past 12 years, have of course had multiple inspections, and I can say without question I’ve never had one even close to as thorough as yours. Not only did you find things that I’m sure other inspectors wouldn’t have, but you took the time to explain to me each issue and what needed to be done to resolve it. It is a rare occasion when I meet someone in any industry that takes true pride in their work and really thrives to be the best at what they do and I really appreciate you exceeding my expectations.
I would recommend you to anyone and if I can ever be of assistance in providing you with a reference please let me know.
Thanks again and best regards,

J. H.

Thanks Kevin.
I was able to download the inspection report and was very pleased with the details. It will be helpful in conveying to the various contractors what I need done. I was most impressed with the quality of your work and your personable manner. I will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends.

J.N.

Thank you Kevin.
This is the first time that we ever had a home inspection done and we learned a great deal. You were very thorough. I appreciate the time you took to complete the inspection and answer our questions. We will definitely call you for any future home inspections.
Regards,

J.P.

Dear Kevin,
I cannot express the appreciation I have for the thorough home inspection I received on Thursday. This being my first home purchase for myself, at times has been extremely nerve racking. However, after the advice and guidance provided by you, has given me the knowledge I need to manage a home. At no time did I feel as if you were in a hurry and just doing a job. It is obvious that you care about your clients and the quality of your work, by taking the time to explain what you saw, and making sure I understood exactly what you were talking about. After the full inspection, the time you invested informing me what you felt should be attended to quickly and things that have time to be corrected, was above and beyond the fee you requested. I would highly recommend you to friends and colleagues considering a home purchase. Thank you again for a job well done.
Cheers,

J.S.

Hi Kevin,
It was our pleasure to have you perform the inspection. I believe you were not only qualified, but thorough. With the cost of homes in Calgary, your service has helped calm our nerves about this stressful purchase. Thank you very much for your professional and friendly service today.
Cheers,

K.S.

Kevin Hawes from Assured Home Inspections was professional, thorough and completely worth the investment. I figure he saved me about $40 to $50 thousand on the first house I put an offer on, but which I did not purchase. On the second house I knew exactly what I was getting into, what needed to be done and pretty much which order it needed to be done in. Kudos!!

Kevin,
Thank you very much for the thorough and honest inspection. You are an example of professionalism and integrity, and I feel assured that you have identified all the areas of concern. The fact that you were professional and provided a full report within hours of finishing the inspection, with photos, and information sheets, etc, is really appreciated.
Your work is impeccable and I’ve met a lot of professionals, but few professional hold such standards as yourself.
Thank you Kevin. You have helped us re-evaluate the home with the new information and allowed us to continue the process knowing full well what we are looking at.

As a realtor I recommend Kevin Hawes to all of my clients because of his knowledge about homes and the thoroughness of his home inspections. His dedication in client care and client satisfaction really shows in the work that he undertakes, not to mention giving all his clients personal contact information so they can ask him questions any time. I recommend that everyone use Kevin for home inspections. You won’t be disappointed.

Thank you very much Kevin!
I did find it [the inspection] very educational and informative! I appreciate the suggestions you made in regards to maintenance and repairs. Also the pictures you took and attached were very clear and concise. We were approved today and will be taking possession on the 7th! Thanks for putting our mind at ease that this was a sound purchase!
Rest assured that I will be handing your name and cards out to anyone I know that would need a home inspection!
Thanks again!!

Thanks again Kevin. Your Inspection Report is very much appreciated, as it has given us a great outline for all the little odds and ends that we can repair as we begin to enjoy our new home. Most importantly for us was your exposure of the poor workmanship regarding the roofing, and the fact that the roofing needed to be redone immediately, By having this knowledge, and your pictures in the report, we were able to present a good case before closing the deal. i am happy to say that there is going to be a large stack of new shingles in the garage (enough to do the whole house at no extra cost) when we move in, courtesy of the seller, as a gesture of good faith. Money well spent on your services saved me a pile in the weeks to come when i have a new roof on my new home.
