James and Tashina are hands down the best ever! From the moment you call in to schedule an inspection all the way to the close of transaction and beyond. They have a concierge service that will schedule things such as hvac and termite. During the home inspection, James makes sure he leaves nothing untouched and explains everything in a way the average person can understand. They will even come back and make sure everything is done correctly before closing! You won't be disappointed!

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, especially enjoyed working with Phillip he's a nice guy with a great personality, incredibly helpful and very patient ( we had to go over the inspection by phone and I have really sketchy cell service so it took about a half dozen calls to finish up). I definitely recommend going through Journey home inspection they'll do a thorough job and it won't cost a fortune.

I strongly endorse Journey Home inspections for their exceptional services. They promptly scheduled my clients and provided a speedy report that was very comprehensive. The report was also easy to comprehend. James directly communicated with my clients and carefully explained and reviewed all the aspects of the home inspection.

I have worked with other inspectors in the past but I have not seen a company be so reliable with communication & information.

I'm super thankful my clients got such a thorough inspection and feel confident and informed in the end! 10/10 recommend.

I can't say enough good things about James and Journey Home Inspections! I was referred to him by a REA friend. He was able to get me in within 2-3 days and did the most thorough inspection! I am a real estate investor and James walked around with me teaching me as he went along. He was so respectful and kind and he gave me all the facts about the house and let me come to my own conclusion about whether or not it was a good investment. He got me in touch with other people that may help me in my journey. He was so thorough and kind and that makes me very excited to work with him in the future!

Journey Home Inspector Services were awesome! Gave us a very detailed report that included pictures of everything they looked at. I have had an inspection done before that I only got a report on what needed to be fixed. They were very professional when we walked in and let us know what they had found that were minor fixes. James (the owner) also did a follow up call a couple of days after the inspection to see if we had any questions upon review the full report. I, myself, do not understand a lot of what was in the report so he explained it in a way I can understand. I will definitely be recommending Journey Home Inspector Services to anyone I can, and I will use them when/if we decide to move to another property! Thank you James & everyone I was in contact within the company!

Excellent experience working with James. As a real estate agent, the most important thing is to make sure clients minds are put at ease. James reached out to the clients and explained the report and made sure they knew the severity level of each issue. And has left an open line of communication between them. This is rare and much appreciated.

Wonderful experience. James was very thorough and ensured he went through the report with me line by line. He was able to explain things that were in good order but may have issues in the future and was very clear about what absolutely needed repair now. I liked that I could bundle other inspections with the home as well.

There is a reason that the only reviews on here are 5 stars. I haven’t had the opportunity to work with too many home inspectors just yet, but I can tell you that I won’t need to. James was incredibly professional, and a wonderful communicator to both myself and my clients. I will be recommending him in the future!

James was able to get our inspection scheduled quickly and encouraged us to be at the home to answer any questions we might have. We also felt at ease with the inspection knowing he would use specific tools and instruments to find any issues that might come up that could be hidden from the natural eye. He even let my husband crawl around the attic with him. He was able to go over the full report with us after the inspection and explain everything in great detail. Not only is James well versed in his field, but he was also a joy to work with. Thank you again!

The service was scheduled and performed in a very timely manner and the report was available to my client the next morning. James then followed up with both me and the client to ensure that there were no questions or outstanding issues. James was very personable and easy to communicate with which made the entire process less stressful for the client. Outstanding customer service!

James was very professional from start to finish and a pleasure doing business with. We had a tight timeline to get our inspection done and he was able to accommodate us. We live out of state, so leading up to and the day of the inspection he was in constant communication with my husband and myself. We got a very thorough report with pictures of everything! We highly recommend him to do your home inspections!

Review rating: 5 out of 5.
James is super friendly and a professional. He listened to my concerns and made sure to review them during and after the inspection. Everything was done in a decent amount of time, and you could tell he is extremely thorough. After they inspected our home, they made sure to cover every single thing they found! I am glad that we spent a few dollars to in the end save us thousands and heartache later. The report was sent to me in less than 24hours with pictures and explanation of repairs needed. Definitely will recommend James if you need an inspector for your home!

First time ever doing a home inspection and I know it went the way I wanted it to go. Very informational especially with being a new home buyer and don't understand the value of everything that comes with purchasing a home. Walk through the whole house together and gather valuable information interior and exterior. Explain the good the bad and the ugly and further steps that I should take. Also due to a wide variety of home inspection give input on everything that was documented on how to make it better. Understand a client perspective and if a client doesn't understand also voice opinions on the best option. Very informative and TAKE AS MUCH TIME AS POSSIBLE TO EXPLAIN TO THE CLIENT ALL INFORMATION. VERY PROFESSIONAL.

The Journey Home Inspection team was amazing, and the communication was on point!!! James went out of his way even on a Sunday to fully go over his report. He doesn't just coordinate his own home inspection. He helps with scheduling other initial inspections as well!! Honestly working with the Journey Home Inspection team was a breath of fresh air!! Thank you again!

James was terrific to work with. He made time in his schedule to accommodate my schedule so that I could be present for the inspection. He was very thorough and answered any of my questions. He delivered the inspection report very promptly electronically. This our fourth house purchase and he is at the top of the list for inspectors we have worked with.

James was able to fit me in very quickly for an 11-month inspection. He was incredibly thorough and willing to explain anything asked during that time. Not only was he very thorough about finding things our initial inspector did not, but he was very personable and relatable. He quickly turned around one of the most detailed inspection reports I've ever seen and I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the market for a home inspection.
