Diligent Home Inspections Testimonials
Bob Moody arrived right on time to inspect a house we were considering purchasing. He showed his identification and went to work immediately explaining what his service would cover and what it might not. He provided me with a binder full of interesting material a homeowner should investigate, and reminded me to ask as many questions as as I felt I needed to ask.
Over the next several hours Bob walked around the outside, over the entire roof, and then inside to check every room in every floor of the house including the attic, inspected all electrical outlets and the panel, garage door for safety features, plumbing fixtures, window integrity, appliances and home infrastructure such as gas furnace and central air. He was happy to have me follow him every step of the way and explain what was up to snuff and what might be a concern. He is obviously well versed in local building codes and construction practices, as well as being a former firefighter and officer, so I am confident that if there were any potential fire hazards I would have been informed.
The following morning I received a very detailed report showing photos of anything that might be considered worthy of note and a corresponding explanation detailing the nature of concern.
I believe that this was absolutely the best expenditure I could have made to ensure that the house was as expected and that there were no hidden problems. Bob has many reviews and as of this writing has a 5 star rating with Google Reviews. It’s easy to see why.
This gentleman is worthy of the highest recommendation!
We highly recommend Mr. Moody for general home inspections. He is extremely thorough and found things that one of our other inspectors missed. He gave us detailed information on how to maintain the home, as well the things that needed to be fixed. We appreciate your past service to this country and your continued service to the community through your work as a diligent and comprehensive home inspector.
ATTENTION NEEDED FOR YOUR BENEFIT: I am the first home buyer and had all my doubts and reservation due to lack of knowledge around the whole process of home inspection and more so on how will i be maintaining the home in the long run when i will acquire it. I am writing this review just to help you guys and not Bob to get the most quality out of the bucks you are going to invest in your home. Bob was detail oriented in his report, very thorough in explaining each and every thing and very keen in looking each part of the house. With him working on your side you are not just getting a home inspector but also getting fire safety inspector and a coach to guide you every step for the future maintenance. I bought a house made 2012 and was not expecting things to find in inspection but to my surprise Bob listed 4-5 items including things which only a fire safety specialist would know to make my future home safe for my kids. The promptness and detail in his report is something to commend too. Being an analyst as a professional, it surprised me the details and the completeness of his reports in such a short duration of time. For me there are not enough words to explain the experience I had with Bob and the comfort you get with him while going along through the inspection. Information he provided in each item he was inspecting, was very informative and to be honest I could not even have to ask him any questions (even though i had the list of questions from my wife from internet:)) just because he was proactive in explaining than taking the reactive approach. I am ending this review just with words of high recommendation for anybody who is looking for a professional with a next door neighbor kind of attitude to help you make a right and informative decision. AGAIN, I am posting this review for you all as i thought one should get benefit of his experience as a fire safety instructor and home inspector for probably the biggest decision of your life.
During our home-buying experience in preparation for moving to Baltimore, Bob walked us through the home inspection process in a professional and personable manner. He did not mind me accompanying him at every step of the inspection. Throughout, he patiently explained everything he did and found. Thus, I learned a lot about the house I would be calling home and felt more comfortable with the purchase being made. And the pens! The pens he gives you with the inspection are amazing.
Bob went above and beyond on our new build. As a FTHB, he showed us the ins and outs of our new house and gave us professional advice on maintenance and upkeeping. He was honest with everything and was very thorough with his inspections. Bob was on site early and we even rescheduled our inspections even though he was already on site because the house wasn’t completely done by the builders. He recommended it at his own expense and had my best interest in mind. Extremely professional! He was more than “diligent” in his services and I would refer him to anyone looking for a reliable and honest service who was very affordable!
I enjoyed the experience. It felt less stuffy and official, and a lot more like spending time learning from your uncle. Bob’s wealth of knowledge seemed to run the spectrum of things that you wouldn’t expect an inspector to know or even care about. He happily shared his secrets with us and I know that I will be calling upon him in the future.
We used Bob twice within weeks of viewing two homes of interest. Bob is very thorough, explains answers to all of your questions, and makes you feel that he is invested in the safety of your home. Thanks Bob!
The quality and attention to detail Bob demonstrated at the home inspection far exceeded my expectations. Every part of the experience was professional and of a high quality. Bob is very knowledgable, experienced, and honest. I will not hesitate to recommend him to any home buyer.
We used Bob for a Ryan Home’s new constructions and couldn’t have been happier. Bob is very thorough and took his time explaining everything he was going to do and did. He is more than happy to dumb down industrial jargon. He was very courteous and professional at all times. We used his services for our pre-drywall and final walk-through. For the final walk-through he even went up in the attic to inspect the insulation. Not only did Bob provide the findings within 48 hours, but he was happy to explain the report and provide his professional opinions to the post-report response from the builder. We highly recommend him.
Had a great experience with Diligent Home Inspections! Bob showed up on time and we were really impressed with his knowledge. He worked well with out schedule and walked the entire property and home with my husband, explaining everything he saw and made comments on. Would highly recommend and use again.
Our real estate agent recommended this home inspector to us because of the thorough and diligent work he had done for other buyers. He absolutely lives up to the name of the company! He was available on short notice and really took the time to inspect every aspect of the house (even going well beyond the time others might). But the thing that was most impressive was his willingness to explain things to us, answer any questions that we had to the best of his ability and gave us invaluable information that will make us confident in our purchase and knowledgeable about our new home!
Bob Moody was professional , honest, thorough, and knowledgeable. He was willing to accommodate us on the time. Even though it later in the day, he still took his time and thoroughly review everything making sure we understood what the concerns were during his inspection. I highly recommend Bob Moody, he did an outstanding job. Thank you! Bob!!!
Top notch, 5 star service. Above board, honest, detailed, and professional. I loved doing business with Bob of Diligent Home Inspections. I had my pre-drywall inspection with another company with which I was so dissatisfied I changed course.
From the moment I called Diligent Home Inspections, I knew the experience would be different. First of all, Bob called me back right away and left a message to return the call. He made me aware of the scope of his services – what was included and what was not – quoted a fair price in comparison with others, and when I decided to utilize Bob, he sent the contract and payment terms, in writing, in advance, so that I knew what to expect on Inspection Day. He served me well during the inspection itself. We had an appointment at 9:00 am in the morning. Bob was on-time and kept the proper arms length distance with the Builder. He told the Program Manager of NVHomes he would not provide the inspection report directly to him unless he had my approval to do so. He conducted a thorough inspection and explained the systems well, to me. He ensured I understood what he was doing the entire time. I would use him again, and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs an inspector.
Most importantly, it was clear to me Bob was working for me, had my best interest in mind, and was not trying to flatter the Builder to get more work. Great guy. Can’t say enough about him.
I am a realtor in Maryland, and I prefer using Bob at Diligent Home Inspections. He is an inspector who genuinely cares for his clients. He is extremely detailed and will literally bend over backwards to make sure he provides the best report! I highly recommend and look forward to using him through my real estate career.
They were very accomodating with changing the time of my inspection due to schedule changes and weather. Much more affordable compared to other companies I called. Very thorough inspection and explained any concerns about the house. I would recommend Diligent home inspections to friends and family.
Incredibly helpful and thorough! I would definitely use again.
Awesome. He’s extremely thorough, professional and pleasant. Took time to explain everything to the clueless(me)….. Will definitely work with you again….
Bob does an excellent job and knows his stuff! He does a thorough inspection and will answer any and all questions with great detail before and after the day of the inspection. Bob also allowed us to reschedule our inspection without any extra charge! He is awesome! As an agent it’s important to have an inspector you trust and Bob is someone you know you can trust!
Inspector was on-time, knowledgeable and friendly.
It was a pleasure meeting you. Your inspection report provided me sufficient evidence to make the right choice on this home purchase. Once again, thank you!!!!!
You were amiable, professional, and honest with us, and in the end you went out of your way to accommodate my work schedule in giving my family a ride home. You are worth way more than you charge.
Your post reports and photos of this property were so clear and well done, just beautiful. It has been a privilege to work with you, experience your expertise and your proficiency.
