Home Inspection reviews in Sarasota

  • Michael and his Wife performed a home inspection for me on May 21st, 2018. They were extremely thorough and they identified several major issue that were not obvious. He is a master Home Inspector and his skill and experience were obvious during this home inspection. Michael saved me from about 150,000 mistake on a 250,000 home and I greatly appreciate his service. I will definitely use his home Inspection service again and I highly recommend him to others.

  • We had a great experience using Blue Heron for our home inspection in Sarasota, FL. Joe Cockey, the owner, responded to our request in under 24hrs, we found the answers to all our questions about pricing and duties right on his website. He was well connected with other service providers, for us that included septic, well and insect specialists. We all met at our property the day of inspection. Joe and his people were professional, courteous and appreciated that we took interest in what they did and what they had to say. Joe spent over 4 hours on this inspection. The report we got was great. The problems were noted right up front and everything else was well documented with pictures and recommendations. It was a big property to inspect and we felt Joe left no stone unturned.

  • Very well! Mike was punctual & did a detailed inspection of the home/condo. I’ve used Mike several times as have my fellow Realtors. I’ve had no call backs from buyers after the sale w/any complaints or problems they felt were over looked.

  • I want to take a minute out of our hectic schedule of buying a home, and all of the stress that goes along with doing so, to recognize a GREAT local business. Our BIGGEST concern was the condition of the home, and if there were any underlying issues. Like most buyers, we didn't have a clue as to who to contact to give us a honest assessment of the condition. We don't run in those circles, so how do we know if the inspector is working with the agent to get the home to pass, or being honest? We've bought several houses in our time, and each Inspection was handled by one person. I've always questioned this. How can one person be an expert in every area? Pool/Roof/Foundation/etc? Direct Inspections(Michael Koester-Owner) brought a team of people, that specializes in all areas of concern. HUGE sigh of relief, when I saw this. Keep in mind, this was six(6) days before Hurricane Irma hit our area. Our future house passed with flying colors.. Post Irma(the next morning) Michael and crew were back out at the house again, to make sure nothing changed, as we are closing in ten days. He was more than fair on the re-inspection cost, and went above and beyond, pointing out things that needed attention. We HIGHLY recommend Direct Inspections, and Michael! Thank you SO MUCH, Michael!!! We are raving fans of YOU, and your team!! The Hardy Family

  • Inspector was very knowledgeable, professional and thorough. He discussed any issues he found with us, and within 24 hours of inspection completion, provided a comprehensive inspection report within which included a detailed write up, as well as photos.

  • Michael Koester/Direct Inspections did an outstanding job. Michael brought three individual experts for termites/pests, AC, and the pool. We received extensive reports which were a refreshing departure from the boiler plate forms that many other inspectors use. Michael and his crew were professional and prompt and gave clear explanations of their findings. Whenever I emailed Michael with a question, he called me almost immediately to address my inquiries. I recommend Mechael and Direct Inspections without reservation.

  • We are buying a home, and needed an inspection done. My realtor gave me a few names of inspectors, but I found Modern Home here on Angie's List, and the ratings were so good that I decided to choose them.

  • As a Realtor I get to interact with many Home Inspectors. Michael and his team at Direct Inspections do an excellent job and I would recommend them to anyone purchasing a home in the Sarasota/Venice area. In fact, Michael just completed an inspection for my husband and I of a home we are purchasing for ourselves in Venice. He is thorough, efficient and extremely knowledgable. He will answer all your questions while on-site and is very responsive to any questions you may have after receiving his reports. He also has a large network of contacts that he can reach out to, if necessary, to address any concerns you have with your new home. Direct Inspections is a great choice!

  • Michael with Direct Inspections was fantastic. I am purchasing a home in Sarasota and we are trying to do a quick close. I called Michael on a Sunday and he answered the phone (off to a great start). We scheduled the inspection over the phone and he had a confirmation e-mail to me within minutes. He was up front about costs and I felt it was reasonable and inline with the comps in the area. He also had two independent professionals come out (one for A/C and one for termites) which was a huge bonus!!! Michael was thorough and honest at the inspection. My wife and I were onsite the entire time and we felt extremely comfortable with him and the other two professionals that came out. At the end he did a walkthrough and he explained everything (in simple terms too which is important because by no means do I know what contractors or inspectors are talking about sometimes)... The report was exactly what we discussed on site and I had it the same day. Plus I even needed him to switch the name on the report to match the name on the loan and he even did that for me on a Friday night Memorial Day weekend. Can't say enough about his commitment to his work. He certainly has our approval and I would recommend him 1000% to any home buyer. Don't get caught up with realtor suggestions. Be independent and book direct with Michael at Direct Inspections.
