Mr. Hollis Brown with Thorospec inspected my newly purchased Arlington home during the week of February 23, 2014. Being new to this, I brought a family friend who has built houses for over 40 years. It was obvious to us that Mr. Brown was extremely competent and skilled at doing his job. He was very thorough and pleasant to work with. He takes to new technologies very well and his report stunned us with pictures, diagrams, and explanations.
I highly recommend Mr. Hollis Brown and Thorospec. My realtor with a major Arlington firm was right on the money on this one and told us Mr. Brown trains home inspectors.
Thank you for a thorough and professional inspection of the property. As a first-time homebuyer, I appreciate the time you took to explain the inspection process and your findings. Definitely recommend this service!
As a first time home buyer, I was admittedly nervous about the tight home inspection contingency deadline and having to rely on the home inspector. Thankfully, Hollis, who my agent recommended that we use for my home condo inspection, quickly eased my apprehension and assured me that I was in good hands.
Hollis was on time, professional, and demonstrated the knowledge and thoroughness that you would hope for from someone with the experience that Hollis has (15 plus years). Hollis additionally answered all of my questions on the spot and emailed a complete, comprehensive report to me within a few hours of the inspection.
I could not have asked for a better first home inspection experience and would highly recommend Hollis to any potential home buyer.
This was my third time in three years using Hollis Brown for a home inspection. Again, he was 100% professional: on-time, thorough, and top-quality in his work. Very highly recommended.
Mr. Brown's inspection report helped us to better understand on the current condition of the property we interested, and the outstanding issues required to be addressed or resolved prior to moving forward.
We are very fortunate to find Mr. Brown to help us to make decision on this property. We will definitely contact him in the near future if we have any questions or need additional help.
