Mr. Baumgardt did a competent and professional job. He pointed out and explained the problems that existed, suggested whether or how to deal with them and the likely cost, and answered all my questions. I would definitely use him again in the future.
Kent was excellent. He came out quickly and was very detailed. I like his coaching on what to focus on for concessions from the seller. He spent several hours on the home.
Kent Baumgardt encouraged us to accompany him as he conducted a thorough inspection of the 3- floor condo. He explained his findings and provided useful information about maintenance needs and life expectancy of the appliances, water heater, air conditioning and heating units. He gave verbal and timely written reports that included specific recommendations for the buyer. Mr. Baumgardt was punctual, personable and professional.
Kent was very prompt and professional in getting us scheduled quickly (within a few days of our call) to meet our deadlines. The inspection process was meticulous and comprehensive. Kent explained everything along the way and provided us with a full written report less than 48 hours later. We were very pleased with the service and highly recommend Baumgardt Home Inspection.
Very detailed written report, good communication. Our home was not that big but he gave it a good going over and the cost was a lot less than we expected.
Kent provided excellent information as we walked through the home together during the inspection. He was very prompt with a complete written report I received the next day. His attitude was professional, helpful and personable. The cost of this inspection was very fair. I am sure he saved me more money than the inspection cost partly because of his reasonable price and also that he was able to find deficiencies I could negotiate into my offer to purchase under the sellers responsibility to fix.
If you are looking for a home inspector who will blow you away, this is your man. Kent was beyond thorough and exceptionally professional. He went over in detail what the issues were, what his concerns were, and in some cases what needed to be done immediately BEFORE closing the property. Not only did he provide a thorough scope of the issues, but even was kind enough to discuss one of the problems, in detail. with the person who was repairing the foundation. I thought this was above and beyond service and as the home buyer, appreciated his taking extra, unpaid time. Those who need a salesperson type personality may find Kent a bit on the dry side. He is not a big talker, or a hand holder. His style is direct and confident. You ask, he tells you and without filters.
