We are a couple that is buying our first home and it is a fixer-upper… Terry and his team came out to do the home inspection and they were GREAT! Terry was happy to have us following him around the house and he explained EVERYTHING in clear English, without talking down to us at anytime. He didn’t sugar coat anything and gave us his honest opinion on every little part of the house, good or bad.

I won’t go into the whole story but he went out of his way to accommodate us and spent extra time at the house to make sure he saw everything that needed to be seen. He was never in a rush to get out of there and answered all our questions fully and with absolute professionalism.

Dear Terry,

It was great to meet you and your son Jordon at the house we were considering at 5th Street in Petaluma recently. In reviewing reports from other properties you've inspected, we were impressed by your detail and thorough evaluations, which is why we wanted your input on 5th Street. We really appreciated your professionalism, expertise, integrity and candor when we met. Although you didn't have the opportunity to complete your report, we'd like to show our appreciation and at least partially compensate your for your time. As we continue to search for a home in Petaluma. we know that you and Jordon will be our allies on helping us understand possible issues with any homes we're considering.... Thank you again, and we look forward to working with you soon...

Sincerely, Knorr & Harper
