He's an effective communicator and we understood from start to finish what his observations were and what they meant.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Cerro charges according to the size and complexity of the house; we live in a big house with three ac units, unusual construction, etc. so ours was expensive. But considering that we want No Surprises when we put the house on the market, we think this was a good investment. He's prompt, diligent, informed and constructive. We've heard anecdotally that some people, especially Realtors, are critical of him but that may be because sometimes his finding probably affect price and even the sale itself. He was here for 12 hours but it was time and money well spent.

I cannot possibly recommend Larry high enough. He is a master at what he does, his level of expertise is as good as it gets. He is patient, thorough, and gave us all the information we needed to make a good decision. We would certainly use Larry again in the future.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We have a historic home w/ a crawl space, which required an extreme amount of detail and expertise to access.
