Mark was wonderful! He was very informative and answered all of my questions. He got my inspection packet sent to our realtor the same day. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and I will use him in the future on any future home buying.
I was pleasantly surprised by the detail and comprehensiveness of the inspection that Mr. Rakow performed. The attention to detail that was paid to each and every aspect of the inspection was just amazing. Furthermore, I received a condensed report with the findings of the inspection just a few hours after the inspection was completed. One cannot ask for better service than that!
I had an outstanding experience with Mark. As a first time home buyer, he took the time not only to inspect the house, but to educate me the entire time on topics such as how certain systems work, how to conduct both active and preventative maintenance, as well as how the climate and environment of the Wiregrass affects the house.
I was apprehensive hiring a home inspector not knowing what ties one may have to a realty company, and perhaps overlooking an issue I wouldn’t notice to ensure the house gets sold. It was very clear early on that this is not the case with Mark, and I am extremely confident after this process that the house I am buying is in great shape. Furthermore, before leaving the house I was given a binder full of recommended improvements and other informational suggestions. As if that wasn’t enough, Mark came back to the house to re-inspect the roof when minor repairs had been done to it, at no cost to myself. I could not possibly be more thankful for the demeanor, professionalism, and services provided by Mr. Rakow.
Mark did an excellent job. He was punctual, honest and very, very thorough. He did an extensive inspection which was invaluable to me as a homebuyer. I would highly recommend Mark and his company to anyone in need of a quality home inspection.
Mark was hands down the best home inspector I have ever dealt with. At first I was not really looking forward to the whole process based off of other experiences buying other homes, but Mark turned that around completely. He showed up on time, got started right away, walked me through any areas I had questions about, pointed out immediate concerns that would need work to prevent further damage. The best part was he took pictures of everything, and gave me a 2″ binder with all of the findings with reference to actual international building code (which Alabama abides by) and honest recommendations for fixes and solutions. An absolute professional, I would recommend his expertise to any homebuyer and in fact if I buy any more properties in Alabama I will be calling him again.
