The reviews don't lie. I hired this organization and the inspection by Panos was absolutely excellent, and very thorough. Panos was extremely polite and professional. I highly recommend this company and will be referring their services. Thanks for a job very well done.

I could not have been happier with James. Strongly recommend him especially in a bidding war pre offer inspection. Although I did not get my fixer, I also did not overpay $125k like the new owners did who sadly will be saddled with many expensive surprises. I learned a lot and feel a lot more confident in the search for my next great home with such a knowledgeable, helpful, caring and competent inspector. Excellent report and superior value for services!

James was punctual, courteous, thorough and clear in reporting all his findings, during the inspection. As a first time home-owner, I've gained valuable insight into so many things that should not be looked over when purchasing properties. His unbiased opinion helped me save a lot of money that I would have invested into things that weren't worth spending over. I'm glad I opted for Inspection Services Group Inc. and would highly recommend their service to all homeowners.

James was excellent. It’s a stressful business buying a property. He was professional and knowledgeable and gave me all of the information I needed to move forward with peace of mind. He was extremely informative, highlighting any and all short term opportunities as well as any longer term requirements. He was friendly and courteous. Highly recommend !!
16:04 08 Dec 21
Panos was our inspector and he was great! We are 1st time home buyers and he was very informative and explained everything ever step of the way. This company was efficient, quick and easy to use. Would 100% recommend!!

James went above and beyond and helped us get the peace of mind we were looking for.We bought our house recently and had no chance for an inspection and were terrified from our investment. James responded quickly set us up with an appointment and we got ourselves a complete guide around where and what can we do with our priorities set thanks to his very detailed guide provided in the same day with even a price guide and life expectancy for our home assets.Thanks once again james and the team great job

Second time having Panos complete a home inspection for us and we couldn't be happier. Panos is knowledgeable and well versed in his area of expertise. We'd highly recommend Panos for all your home inspection needs :)Thank you Panos! 😊
14:59 29 Aug 21
Couldn’t be happier with our experience with James. Clearly extremely knowledgeable and thorough. He took the time to explain his findings to us, our options to remedy deficiencies, and made a number of recommendations for preventative maintenance.Update: in the years following the home inspection, James has been really helpful with trades referrals for projects and repairs. I would definitely (and have) recommend James' services to family and friends.
12:00 26 Aug 21
The inspection was very thorough and professional.
13:04 19 Aug 21
James is very friendly and a pleasure to work with. He is extremely thorough and found things that I was unaware of.

This is one review I couldn’t pass up on providing!! For me, having a home inspection is a must for any purchase I make, and recently I decided to provide a pre-inspection on a home I was selling to support the value and marketing strategy to the sale of my home. In walked Panos; to describe him in once sentence, he is a true gentleman of the old school. To his core, he is a man of honesty and integrity and these values are unshakable by anything you could possibly imagine. He will not sugar coat and he will not bend the truth of what he is tasked to do; and that is to give you an in depth analysis of your home. He is highly educated, a subject matter expertise with lots of knowledge and continues to invest in his business with the most advanced tools, and continues his certification that is above and beyond what is required to practice in the Province.Panos, walked us through our existing home, identified issues that we didn’t even know existed even though we lived in the house and was missed by the home inspection completed at the time of purchase. In the end, we addressed the issues and achieved our purpose of providing a fully reliable pre-inspection and made the sale of our home that much more frictionless and avoided many of tactics made by some home buyers.With the purchase of our home, we wanted to know what exactly we were buying and what issues might arise after the purchase. Panos provided the type of home inspection that is detailed, with evidence and illustrations to help us understand what we were getting ourselves into. It was the type of inspection that made you feel like “I know my new home intimately”, it was like I lived in it all along and knew what needed to be done, I even get estimates for any repairs before closing on the property. What surprised me the most, is the added value of his protection package that he offers, any business owner that stands behind his product and services says a lot about the workmanship and pride they take in their work. When you consider the average cost of a new home and the investment you are willing to make, the product and services provided by Panos seems like a no-brainer, I encourage anyone who is thinking of buying/selling a home to give Panos and his team a call, I promise it will alleviate a lot of anxiety and buyer’s remorse throughout the process. Thank you Panos for giving myself and my family the peace of mind, you are PRICELESS!
00:20 10 Feb 21
Absolutely amazing service. Highly knowledgeable, exceptionally professional and courteous. Would definitely recommend.
02:55 05 Feb 21
If you want someone responsive, reliable, and trustworthy, James is your man. You need someone like James for what is likely the biggest investment of your life. Unfortunately there are many inspectors out there who cut corners. James it the opposite. He will take his time with you to explain and if he does not know, he will tell you. That's what I needed.
21:57 30 Jan 21
James is a professional and completed a very thorough inspection. I would highly recommend him.
01:27 30 Jan 21
James was super amazing! He did our Home inspection and we could not be any happier. He did a great job during these COVID times and was following all protocols.

We highly recommend James to anyone who's looking for a peace of mind when buying a home!
08:02 29 Jan 21
James was very thorough and knowledgeable on our home inspection. We were very confident that we made the right purchase of our home once he explained every detail of his inspection. We would definitely recommend him and use him again.

Very professional, showed up on time, has all set of equipment and tools needed for a good quality inspections, answered all our questions, report very well done. Highly recommended.
14:48 07 Dec 20
James is a fantastic home inspector, we've used him twice now, for the pre-listing home inspection and also a new home buy inspection. He's extremely knowledgeable, very easy to talk to, an excellent communicator in explaining complicated issues to someone without the underlying knowledge, and a pleasant guy to be around. He came highly recommended from a realtor friend, Anna Oliver at Sotheby's, and didn't disappoint. It's awesome to walk a house with James, spend a few hours with him, and learn pretty much everything you can about a house, from foundation to the tip of the roof... he knows it all. I would recommend James even if you just want to find out what's happening with your own home... they provide a full manual on your home.I would highly recommend James, and the Inspection Services Group.
11:34 30 Nov 20
James recently performed a home inspection for a bungaloft my wife and I were looking to purchase. His evaluation was very thorough and informative.

18:33 15 Nov 20
James did a house inspection when we were buying our first house. James was there early and ready to go. James was very thorough, gave us tons of great additional tips and information during the inspection since Im a first time home buyer which really put me at ease.

My Fiance and I are going through the process of buying our first home. Panos came as a referral from our real estate agent. We had heard horror stories about home inspectors before and did not know what to expect. Panos blew every expectation we had away, he was professional, timely, took time to explain things to us, it made me feel like a family member was going through the home inspection with us. You could tell that he had our best interest in mind with everything. I could not recommend Panos more. I will most definitely be using the Home Inspection Services Group for any future home inspections I have. Look no further than this company. Thank you so much Panos!
18:27 21 Sep 20
James is very professional, he has inspected two houses I thought to purchase. While inspecting he saved me thousands of dollars because both homes would have had so much more work. He does a thorough job and makes sure it’s done right. I will definitely come back to James for future house purchases! Thanks man you are awesome!
13:37 09 Sep 20

From the moment I was introduced to Panos from other reputable Real Estate Agents in Toronto and Durham, my clients and I are extremely satisfied with his services. From attention to detail, to explaining how the home being purchased runs/works to my clients, to answering every single question buyers may have, regardless if it is their first home, or the 3rd home in their life.Panos attention to detail has saved my clients thousands and thousands of dollars by simply noticing deficiencies, or assuring my clients of a well built home or well renovated project.Panos is extremely responsive, professional, well spoken, and always willing to work with the Real Estate CRAZY schedule that requires inspections within hours/day notice.I have personally used Panos great service for my personal home and my wife couldn't be happier for the reassurance of her biggest investment, not to mention a full report of the status of our home.I highly recommend Panos for any inspection you need, from Barrie to Toronto and from Niagara Falls to Durham. If you want to protect your biggest investment in life, call Panos to make sure you are making the right decision. Absolutely all of my clients were in awe with his service.Thank you Panos,Giovanni MurgaRE/MAX Hallmark Realty Ltd.

This was caused by landscapers who did not know or simply did not care what they were doing and blocked the cold room vents completely and also allowed the downspout from the roof to drain almost on the porch.
