The Highest-Rated Inspectors in Chicago

What They’re Saying

Bob was fantastic from the time he answered my first phone call to the time he delivered his final report. I have never seen such a thorough inspection and detailed report. The photos in the report make understanding what's in it very easy. He also took the time to explain all the things he found in the house and give us his advice on how to handle some of the repairs. He was kind, courteous, respectful and professional. I would recommend A1 Property Inspection to anyone!

Katherine Ast

Roger did a great job for my home inspection. He was very thorough and explained everything to me in a way I could understand. He answered any questions I had and was extremely polite. He was early to the inspection and took his time to make sure he has everything documented. I appreciate that they include pictures and fixes in the report as a check list for things to fix over time or maintenance. Roger had great advice and I truly enjoyed working with him and this company. I highly recommend A1 Property Inspection.

Amanda Schretter

As a Realtor it is detrimental to have First Class people & Companies to recommend to my clients. Bob at A-1 Property Inspection Corp. is at the top of my list. I know that when I refer Bob the clients are always treated with the upmost integrity and respect that can be given to a
client. His services are beyond reproach. It is an honor to have him as part of my team!!

Stephanie Herbert

Bob recommended a further inspection of the brick on a home we are buying. A few recommended contractors were able to take a look. 2 of them independently identified that the lentils are bad and the rusting is causing cracks. Total of ~15k work needed to replace them.
No house is perfect but we love the place. An expensive surprise avoided and a little to work out with the sellers. Thanks again, we’re in a much better position because of Bob’s work.
