Mark is an absolute professional. Very thorough, explains things well and certainly gives you the confidence (or not!) whether you should pursue a home after one of his inspections. As a Mortgage Broker I come across a lot of home inspections, none are to the same standard as Mark's.
Very impressed with Mark's professionalism and the the level of knowledge he has about property, building, council regulations and requirements. Mark inspected a property for us and was suspicious that a basement garage and deck has been done illegally, i.e. without council consent and in a very DIY way. After checking council records I found that he was right. Marks advised me on what council certification I should get from the vendor to ensure the house is safe to live in before going ahead with the purchase. Mark has saved me at least $30K and allot of headaches. Highly recommended!."
Great and professional service from mark. Mark responded my request to inspect the house on a very short notice. Thought the agent forgot to bring the keys to inspect underneath the house. Thanks to mark he kindly came back again to inspect the house and make sure that i am making an informed decision regarding the house.
Mark is very detailed in answering any question. Answered all my calls/inquiries after the inspection.
We have used Mark at Harbour Home Inspections twice and cannot speak highly enough about his attention to detail, thoroughness and knowledge. Mark checked items in both houses that we would never have thought about checking, and so with his thorough process and knowledge of the building industry it gave us great peace of mind to be able to continue with the purchase of both houses. He was excellent at explaining technical information in easy to understand language and was very happy to take the time to provide explanations for any queries we had. We would highly recommend Mark to anyone wanting to work with a reliable, trustworthy, unbiased and highly skilled pre-purchase home inspector.
We're looking for our first home and had Mark inspected the house for us. From the first phone call to the end of the inspection/reporting, he maintained high level of professionalism, yet friendly and swift responses to all email and text messages.
Mark picked up a lot of essential issues that we overlooked despite having been to the property twice. His inspection gave us a clear sense of how far we could go with the house at auction by factoring in expenses to be incurred after the purchase.
We will definitely use Mark again and highly recommend him for any pre-purchase inspections. It's worth it considering it's one of the most valuable investments in our life-time.
The report itself was extremely comprehensive, well written and easy to understand...I purchased the property with no hesitation, knowing there would be no hidden surprises...Two real estate agents themselves said it was the most thorough report they had seen and both of these agents have used him for friends and family. Again I was impressed by Mark's reliability, thoroughness, and attention to detail in providing a report with enough relevant information to sway a decision. I would strongly recommend Mark and Harbour Home Inspections for anyone considering purchasing any type of property
I used Mark to inspect two properties. The inspections were done promptly and reports were clear and concise. I was very impressed with Marks willingness to discuss the report and provide more information.
On the second property there were questions after the pre settlement inspection. Even though it was 7 weeks after Mark had completed his report he still responded to questions
Mark just did our pre purchase inspection couple days ago, he is really friendly and helpful. We have to call him at night to ask him a few questions, he is really happy to help and offer his advise to us. He is really easy to deal with and I would for sure recommend him to any other who want to do a pre purchase inspection. I was recommended by my friends and collegues to him, he is a certianly a good guy to trust.Thanks for all your help. We would for sure ask you to do any other prepurchase inspection in the future!!!
I have used Mark at Harbour Home Inspections for many house inspections over the past 6 years, some of which I purchased and some not. He provides a sound view of the house bones, highlighting all possible or actual issues, repairs or maintenance required, and details this in an excellent report. His communications is outstanding and he is reliable and cost-effective. I highly recommend him and am totally happy with the advice and outcomes I have achieved in my investment porfolio, thanks to him.
Great Service. The Best report I've received over 10 years and many houses, and I got it the same day!! Communication great, and issues explained and photographed, saved me thousands. Highly recommended.
I was impressed with the quality of the inspection and indepth reporting - and then to be happy for me to phone to discuss the report for at least half an hour with me, really made me realise I had chosen the right company for the job. Thankyou very much, I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.
I can't recommend Mark enough! He was such a huge help with checking out this property and gave me on going support, great value for money and an incredibly detailed report. Don't buy a house without getting Mark to check it out first!
Mark was definitely the man for the job. Not only he is professional at what he does, but he is very literate. I.e. he explained the result of home inspection in a straight forward manner that is very easy for us to understand. Everything was done on a timely manner and pointed out several area that we did not notice and provide suggestion on how to fix them. In addition, he sticks to the quote that he had provided us initially and he managed to reschedule one of his clients and put my job
