Mr. Novotny was very helpful in this process. He was quick, thorough, and knowledgable about a variety of different items. He was aware of current market values and very careful to explain the prices he was giving. He was pleasant to work with and our family felt relieved to have someone come in give us a realistic estimation of the value of the home's contents. We would definitely hire him again.

Excellent. We hadn't had the house checked for termites for about three years. They gave us an appointment quickly. The very nice and knowledgeable man came and said there were no signs of termites or any dangerous spiders. He recommended no action and charged us no money. I will definitely call them again when needed.
