Arlington Home Inspection
Arlington, MA 02474
Morgan is 'friend of friends' so he was my first call when I needed an inspection on a small commercial building. He and his assistant throughly and methodically went over every detail of the property and asked the property owner all the hard questions that we needed answers to. He got his probe and flashlight into all the hidden spaces and stayed on track when something did not look right. I am a contractor so I know what we were looking at but it was especially helpful for me to have his blunt, realistic perspective on my side because as the buyer it is easy to gloss over problems when you have an emotional desire for everything about your dream property to be okay. I got an excellent written report and came away much more confident about what I was getting into. Exactly what a property inspection should be! Jamie, Arlington MA
I had Tom helped do the inspection on the condo unit I was going to buy in East Boston. Tom is very helpful, took his time go through the condo and explain in details of everything. Tom report is very clear and I like how he suggested alot of things in the report. Overall Tom is very friendly and useful. Although our deal with the condo is falling apart but I'll sure have Tom to inspect my next condo purchase. The reason I gave it 4 stars because the customer service is terrible. I called so many times but often time Kristen never around to answer the phone. The worse part is that she takes $150 deposit when I made an appointment which I have never seen any inspection company does that. Also I was concern about the roof so I requested to have Tom looks at it during the inspection. Kristen told me that she'll send me the permission form to have the seller sign but then she never get the form to me. I emails, and emails her at least 5 times to ask for the form. She never gave me one. Anyway, at the inspection Tom made it very easy and prepared to go to the roof which I'm really appreciate that.
MKC made my experience of having a home inspected very educational! I worked with Jack Mason and he was great! He was there early already checking out the property as we arrived. He pointed out a lot of things that the normal consumer would not recognize. Unfortunately, we did not end up purchasing the home due to underlying complications with the home...but the search continues and Jack will be the first person I call if I need another inspection!
Jack was extremely helpful inspecting two houses for us. He was very thorough and did not mind me tagging along from start to finish. I was very pleased as he showed and explained all the things that he was inspecting. He also sent detailed report with photos included just a couple of days after. It was very clear that he is very knowledgeable and masterful in home inspection. Highly recommended!
We worked with Tom Berthiaume on a home inspection in Metrowest Boston. Tom did an excellent job, and the report we got back was extremely thorough and comprehensive. As first time home buyers, Tom explained everything in detail and was extremely patient and friendly. We would definitely use Tom again in the future. The quality of the report you get is well worth the price.
I called MKC based on their rating and was not disappointed. Tom did my inspection and did and excellent job. He was very thorough and pointed several areas where we may want to get subject matter expert to further investigate. I took him up on it and Tom was spot on in his initial assessment. He answered all of my questions and was very helpful throughout the entire inspection. Highly recommend.
MKC made the whole home inspection process extremely easy. We needed to have an inspection performed in a short timeline (we were calling Thursday attempting to schedule for the following week) and contacted MKC after reading reviews on Yelp. MKC was able to accommodate this short timeline by scheduling us for the following Monday at 9:00 am. While our realtor had recommended other inspectors and MKC's price was slightly higher than others we had called, I was very happy we went with MKC. We worked with Morgan, who was extremely thorough, detailed, and professional. He was very attentive to all aspects of the house (from small items such as dishwasher positioning to larger drainage issues) and explained everything to us in detail. He also took his time to check everything carefully rather than rush the process while taking thorough notes and photos. The end result was a detailed and clear punch list report, which he prepared within 24 hours. We had planned to perform a radon test that day as well but unfortunately were unable to do so because of the amount of work still in progress on the house. We plan to have Morgan back both for the radon test and to check the results of the work on punch list items.
I worked with Morgan for our home inspection. He was great to work with. He was very thorough, and gave me a full report at the end with photos (electronic document). He was knowledgeable and walked me around the house explaining everything as he was making notes and taking pictures.
Morgan was exceptional, as other reviewers have said. His thoroughness and attention to detail were incredible. He was methodical and gave off the confidence of a seasoned professional while also feeling approachable and welcoming of questions. He also took meticulous notes and digital photographs of everything he saw, which we received in an extensive (66 page!) report two days later. This let us focus on what he was saying during the inspection as opposed to scrambling to jot down notes. I plan to use MKC for all future home inspections.
We worked with Doran on our inspection. He was already there when we arrived. What a great guy. Was helpful, knowledgable and explained everything thoroughly. Everything was very quick and easy from scheduling the inspection to receiving the report. Would highly recommend!
