    Sebastian was a godsend! He was early, friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and thorough. Took us about 2.5 hours to complete an inspection of our 2000sq ft town house, and Sebastian was sure to explain everything to us in full detail. … More He was patient with our questions (new homeowners and we had no idea about anything), and took the time to explain what many things in the house did, which made us feel comfortable. Report came in ahead of schedule and was very clear on the issues (including detailed pictures) and included some tips on where to find more information. 10/10 would recommend using HomeKey & Sebastian in the future. We will for sure use them for our next home!

    Absolutely thrilled with the service we received from the HomeKey Inspections service members today. We are in the process of purchasing a home and were fortunate to have a home inspection contingency included in our contract. Sebastian … More was thoughtful and thorough and, when he quickly realized there may be a piping issue, enlisted the assistance of Ian to perform a same day sewer scope inspection. As a result, HomeKey identified some major (and very pricey!) issues unknown to the seller, and us. We are so thankful to have these issues identified in advance of closing. I highly recommend anyone in need of inspection services to go with HomeKey, you won't be disappointed.

    Very thorough and knowledgeable inspector (Jay). Incredibly lucky to have him - he came out first for a pre drywall inspection but house wasn’t ready, he still gave us lots of good detailed info that helped us communicate with the builder … More and get it ready for Jay within a week. He came out again and wrote up a very good detailed report. We are very grateful. I should mention the office staff is very fast, responsive and friendly too. Thanks Jay and Homekey team!

    The people at HomeKey took the stress out of one price of the home-buying process. I had Mike for my home inspection. He was very thorough and professional. The support staff was also very responsive and made scheduling and payment very … More easy. I could not recommend them enough.

    I found HomeKey on the internet and saw their fantastic reviews. From first touch (phone call) to the actual appointment scheduling (48 hours later) to the report (24 hours after inspection), this process was seamless and easy. The inspector, … More Sebastian, was professional and extremely polite, and very patient with my many, many questions. I'd use them again in a heartbeat!

    From the beginning of the process from scheduling to receiving the report, the experience with HomeKey Inspections has been amazing. Jennifer and owner Ian was so helpful and informative when I wanted to pre-book my inspection well ahead … More of time since I did not receive a solid date from my builder till a week ahead of time. Since my condo unit is unique and I own the rooftop, I requested an additional add-on service and update to the contract. I had such a great experience with my inspector, Wolfgang. He was very professional, intelligent, and kind. Before the inspection, he provided his planned steps and processes so that you are informed the entire way. He also educated me on what he is looking for, how many rounds he’ll take walking the property and why he takes certain pictures. For any findings found, he took the time to explain the severity, why it could be a potential issue and how the builder could fix it. He was able to get to areas on the rooftop and found issues that I would have never been able to see. The report was received next day as promised. It was well written and organized with clear pictures that I was able to provide to the builder for fixes. Overall, it was money well spent and I have recommended HomeKey Inspections to others and will be booking them for my final inspection.

    Our inspector from HomeKey, Sebastian, was great! Used the company for an inspection for a home purchase, they scheduled for us very quickly. He let my husband and I shadow along the whole time, answered all of the questions he could as … More he inspected different systems, and didn’t skimp on anything (incl. roof, sub panel in an outbuilding). We got the report the next evening and it was SO THOROUGH. Tons of photos, information, and recommendations. He was also very friendly! Highly recommend to others.

    These guys did a great job on inspecting a home we were trying to buy. They were able to inspect the property on short notice and the inspector did a wonderfully thorough job. The report that was submitted was also easy to access and navigate. … More We were able to use the online report to select items flagged for replacement/repair and export them into custom lists to send to contractors for quotes. I would highly recommend HomeKey.

    Very professional and thorough! Answered all my questions and offered up many many observations throughout the inspection. They were very flexible with timing and were able to quickly adjust when I needed to reschedule the inspection earlier. … More The report was very thorough and full of pictures, which helped with getting issues fixed afterward. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    Before booking the Inspection, I called and received an answer from a live voice. She was nice and answered all of my questions. I was directed to the website to check appointment availability, and was able to book times within 48 hours. … More
    Once I booked the appointment, the inspector (Jay) showed up right on time, and was very articulate and set the expectation of what he would be looking at. He worked mostly autonomously, as I was working from home, and was respectful of my time and my work obligations. He provided a verbal recap, and told me a report would be coming soon. I paid the invoice, and the report came via email within around 24 hours.
    Overall great experience, and the cost was pretty good as well.

    Janet was super easy to communicate with and was a super big help. Was able to assist in helping us with an inspection in under 24 hours. Chad was early and had already started the inspection and explained in detail everything he found. … More He answered every question we had with professionalism and was awesome enough to dumb things down for us.
    Will use them again when available.

“We were very impressed by Darren and the Excel Inspections Team. We had a short turn-around time to meet the seller’s desired closing date, and Excel was unfailingly cooperative. They had the radon detector in place within 48 hours of my contacting them, and they answered text-message questions even in the early AM. The on-line reservation system was easy to use, enabling us to book the inspection on Monday morning and have it fully completed by Friday evening during a busy spring season. I definitely recommend the Excel Inspections Team to anyone buying real estate in the Northern Virginia area.”

“While working with Ian I felt like I wanted to become a home inspector just so I could hang out with him and his team every day – or buy a house every day so I could have Ian and his team inspect it. All companies should be like Excel Inspections with extremely professional, competent people who are also super-nice! I really can’t say enough nice things about Excel Inspections – you have to use them.”

Anya K., McLean, VA - 3/24/2016

“My wife and I were very happy that we chose Excel Home Inspections. Ian was on time, professional, and a wealth of knowledge. He was thorough and took his time to answer all our questions. He did not rush the inspection and gave us a wonderful roadmap of the “fix-it” items in the short and medium term and gave us maintenance and DIY tips. We cannot recommend Ian enough!”

Brooks R., McLean, VA - 3/28/2016

“This is my first time buying a house, and working with Ian was the first time in this treacherous process that I felt like I could actually trust someone and they had my interests at heart. I paid a little extra for the Infrared Leak Detection, and am very happy I did. 2 pretty serious leaks were revealed that did not show up in the initial inspection.”

Chris K., Washington, DC - 1/12/2016

“Jenn was very helpful in accommodating our start time and the need for multiple changes in schedule. We were delayed and Ian was able to get started without us but catch us up afterwards which we really appreciated. Ian was thorough and clearly explained the issues he was documenting along the way. A detailed report with issues classified as major or minor and pictures with issue descriptions was delivered later that evening and we were able to share with our builder to get most items addressed. Very pleased!”

Dolly S., Arlington, VA - 6/10/2015

“We’ve used Excel twice in two months, and before that tried at least two different home inspection companies for other purchases. Ian’s knowledge, thoroughness, and professionalism is unmatched. He finds every issue you should be aware of, and then gives you a reality check as to how serious those issues are, and whether they are unusual relative to the age of the home. Reports are timely, and detailed. We’ll choose Excel every time.”

Jelli F., Arlington, VA - 8/22/2014

“Ian did an excellent job at our home inspection. We’re first time home-buyers and he did such a great job of not only explaining everything he was looking for in the inspection but giving us tips on how to fix things, pointing out what’s really minor and/or cosmetic and what legitimate concerns were. We would definitely recommend working with him!”

Anna B., Fairfax, VA - 1/13/2015

“I have heard stories and read reviews for many other home inspectors, and I can honestly say that I have not seen any other company out there with as many constantly high reviews for both the quality of work and caliber of people as Excel Inspections. They are truly of the highest quality and integrity – something worth every penny when it comes to the largest purchase of your life. I highly recommend Excel Inspections to all my friends and family, and plan to use them again for any future needs.”

Megan M., Simi Valley, CA - 2/11/2016

“Like many others, I was impressed by the consistent 5-star ratings and glowing reviews on Yelp. So, I scheduled to have Ian come out and perform an inspection. And, I’m so glad I did. He was on time, energetic, knowledgeable, and conducted a VERY thorough review (about 3.5 hours). I walked around the home with Ian and he pointed out every issue he saw as well as provided tips for future home maintenance.”

Shiji T., Washington, DC - 12/13/2015

“First time home buyer, and Darren was amazing throughout the entire process. Very thorough, and took the time to explain every issue, good or bad. The report was completed promptly and included fix actions for each discrepancy. I am confident that I have there information I need to make the right decision on this property, thanks to Darren.”
