“One word to describe this dynamic duo: ‘Wow!’.
Mari Jo and Jamie were hired to inspect a property I was purchasing. The house had many features I have never worked with before, including an air re-circulation system, cedar shake roofing, zone heating/cooling and a recirculating tub. These features and a few others had made me uneasy but the team at REI took the time to explain how, not only they worked but shared experiences they had with these types of systems and what to expect.
The confidence they gave me put all my worries at ease.
The two spent at least 5 hours at the property, and thorough hardly describes it. Every single outlet was tested, every light, breaker, GFCI switch, sprinkler zone and more…
The report I received that same day was an entire book of suggestions, issues, and perks. Complete with descriptions, photos and highlights. The report helped me go back to the sellers and they fixed everything that we asked for AND we got some serious cash off.
Mari Jo and Jamie were worth their cost literally 10 times over for me. I was so impressed that I will be hiring them again to do an inspection on the house I am moving out of and selling to find any issues up front!
11/10 stars from me!
Thanks you two, keep up the great work!”
“I highly recommend REI for your home inspection. I hired Jamie and Mari Jo to inspect a cabin we were purchasing. There were many issues with the cabin that concerned me; so I was very fortunate to have chosen them for the inspection. They were very thorough and spent at least 5 hours at the property performing the inspection and then giving me a very comprehensive explanation of their findings. I received the final report, which was very detailed and included pictures, later that same day. Their thorough and very professional report gave us great leverage to amend our purchase agreement and have the sellers address the issues and complete some costly work prior to closing. Thank you Jamie and Mari Jo for your professionalism and taking so much of your time to conduct a very in depth inspection. You are very passionate about your work and it really shows!“
“Real Estate Inspections did a thorough job and we were completely satisfied. The pricing was very reasonable and they took the time to explain everything to our understanding. We would highly recommend them.”
“I couldn’t ask for a more thorough and complete inspection. And Jamie and Mari Jo explained everything to me clearly, so I had the complete story about my house from their inspection! Thank you!”
“We had a great experience with REI! They were super efficient, friendly, thorough, and fairly priced. I would recommend them to everyone!”
“As we approached our potential property we saw Jamie in a hazmat suit going into the crawlspace of our potential cabin with Mary Jo, in hand, with an I Pad for documentation. It was then that my father and I knew this was going to be a great inspection done with integrity and accountability . We are/were first timers for cabin living in Northern Minnesota and feel after our personal meeting (not so much business) that we could make a great adjustment to our new cabin and will live the life the way we have always wanted! NO WORRIES… They both had my father and I talking about how great they both were prior to talking about issues with the cabin! Our meeting with both Jamie and Mary Jo felt like we had people who cared just as much, if not more about our investment in the property. With their “Meticulous” attention to detail, all important tips and most important the ability to make you feel like the property we were buying was one of their own. It was no doubt that what they do is special and important for all to experience.
When you think of one of biggest purchases in life “your home/cabin” the stress of wondering what might be wrong or what other expenses will be they really find it all and are transparent. If you are looking at buying a property and need an honest thorough “Duo” who knows building codes, they are the best in the business! We are grateful to have seen their passion for what they do but more important making sure the integrity of the process is their for all they may encounter. Thanks Jamie and Mary J0″
“Very friendly, easy to ask questions and straightforward, would recommend!”
“Just recently (March 2018) had an inspection done by REI. They were prompt to return my call, extremely professional during the entire time I was working with them, and thorough hardly begins to describe the great job they did.
Very personable, and easy to understand, Jamie and Mari Jo made sure I was comfortable understanding their information and notes before moving on to the next subject.
Their final report was incredibly detailed and they were precise with locations of issues, detailed on what they would recommend, and completely transparent on what they found.
This company clearly has a passion for what they do and in addition to the great initial job- they also offer follow up consultations to their customers to ensure that they STILL get great service even further down the road.
I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a home inspection- or even just has questions- Jamie and Mari Jo were both very knowledgeable about up to date standards and common issues, and were very open about their recommendations.”
A huge thumbs up!
“The inspection was thorough and they took the time to walk us through every little item that was discovered and why it was something that needed to be looked at, compared to other inspections we have had which we simply get a report. In addition both individuals were very helpful and the pricing was fair and upfront with no surprises.”
“We are very pleased with the quality of our home inspection. Jamie and Mary Jo were very detailed in reviewing every aspect of our new home and relieved any concerns we had. I feel confident moving into our new home. Their findings were provided both (a) during the final walk through with the buyer and seller and (b) in a detailed report including pictures of findings. Pricing was fair and service was quick. We highly recommend this inspection company.”
“Thank you for doing such a thorough inspection of the property! We greatly appreciated having an unbiased opinion on the condition of the home we were purchasing. Thanks to your service we were able to negotiate more off the home that we otherwise wouldn’t have. Highly recommend. Very timely and competitively priced!”
“We were very happy with the work done by Jamie and Mary Jo. They were incredibly thorough and took all the time we needed to answer questions and walk with us throughout the property to show us the results of the inspection. The report was also very helpful and descriptive, complete with clear pictures and diagrams. We’ve had several inspectors in the past and REI is the best by far.“
“We used REI to inspect a lake cabin. The thoroughness of the inspection was fantastic and they discovered issues that we had not noticed. After the inspection, Jamie and Mari Jo toured the property with me and explained what was wrong/right and how to fix the wrongs. The report was extremely detailed and I received it that same day. Friendly, professional, and detail oriented. Great company!”
“Super easy to work with and very detailed inspection. Thank you for your hard work.“
“We had an excellent experience with this company. Jamie and Mari Jo were thorough in the home inspection and walked us through every aspect of it. I would absolutely recommend their services!”
“Fast and thorough, very pleased with their work! We were not present at the time of the inspection and through our realtor and Jamie they answered our question immediately!“
“Jamie and Mari Jo were so helpful!! They took time, making sure nothing was overlooked and then explained everything to us in detail. We would recommend them to anyone!!“
“I just wanted to say thank you for doing my home inspection for me! I learned a lot and now will have a great report to go off of when repairing and updating. I also want to thank you for the discount you gave me for the Heroes Home Advantage program. It helped a lot! Hope you have a wonderful 2018 and thanks again!”
“Great people, great at what they do! My buyers have only had great experiences working with Real Estate Inspections…they’re able to answer questions about the house and the home inspection process. Highly recommended!”
Without a doubt REI is very thorough and trustworthy inspectors. They came to my home to inspect for the buyers of my home who hired them. They thoroughly inspected my home finding problems needing repair, that I was unaware of and should have been informed of, by the previous Inspector when I purchased this home two years ago. I realized that when I required an inspection prior to my purchasing this/my home. I had a shoe in inspector who should have brought to light these deficiencies and I could have had them addressed to the previous seller for repairs. I now have to pay to fix these issues prior to my sale. So, it is essential for both the buyer and seller to address the issues when necessary to avoid any delays in the purchase / sale of their home. I bring this learning lesson to light hopefully for others to know the importance of a good home inspection whether you are a buyer or a seller. REI sets the precedence for a thorough and trustworthy inspection for other inspectors to follow.
Jaime and Mari Jo are professional and very detailed in their home inspections. They found items in need or repair that we missed and could have costed us thousands of dollars. We have used them twice and I would highly recommend their service to anyone looking for a detailed home inspection.
