Michael Bryan just conducted an inspection for my recent rental home purchase. I found him to be extremely professional, very responsive, and went out of his way to provide a thorough, detailed inspection. He even went out of his way to provide an additional condition report letter to my lender to help clear an underwriting requirement. I will definitely be using Michael again. Great Job Michael!!
