Comments: Very helpful. Incredibly thorough detailed inspection.

Review Date: 12/05/2020 | Author: Milka S.

Comments: John was a great educator while completing our home inspection! We learned so much as 1st time homebuyers about the maintenance and upkeep that will be required of us with this purchase. He also made us feel welcome to contact him again in the future if we have any questions.

Review Date: 11/11/2020 | Author: Caleb K.

Comments: John provided such valuable information in our home buying experience. He took the time to explain such great details about the home and what we could do to actually save some money in regards to our Utilities. The experience and knowledge that John has surpassed my expectations by far. He has the patience (if you are willing) to discuss with you everything that he sees as you walk through with him. I did research about 10 other Companies, but I am so glad John was referred to us by Homestead Realty Inc. I would suggest that anyone reading this pick up the phone and call immediately, because this is the one guy that will be able to answer and explain any questions you may have about your situation. Thanks again John, and I most definitely recommend your services to others looking to hire someone like you. Caleb / Kathy and Family

Comments: I hired John in 2011 to inspect my home prior to purchasing it. Good price. Unfortunately, I found a lot of things wrong with the home that were not caught on inspection. Things are missed, but the roof started leaking the 1st year I bought the home, and the opener broke on my garage door the 2nd year neither of which were covered under warranty.

Comments: I'm a Realtor who called around to find a Home Inspector as part of my service to a Client. KJ Wood was the was the 1st to reply, professional, knowledgeable, courteous, & on time. For what is included in the cost (even commuted from Franklin WI to Kenosha WI), the best price I've seen in a long time. He is now at the top of my referral list for Clients who are in need of Home Inspections, Lead Testing and Radon Testing as well. I look forward to doing business with him again & again!

Comments: My experience needs to be experienced to be understood. John is a unique human being and treats you as one. He does not do it for the impression; he does it because that is who he is. He is a very knowledgeable and professional person. He identifies with you and with what he does for you. He is easy to talk to and relate with. It is an experience of a lifetime to see him work and point out the details in the house. He is one very positive person. I never met him before he worked for me. I only read other people's impression like this, but I will doing a disservice to other prospective clients if I do not write this. I am an immigrant from Africa.

Comments: I am a first time home buyer and as a younger woman, I feared not getting the same type of service that perhaps a male or a married couple would have. However, John with KJ Wood was exceptional! He arrived early, was extremely personable, professional and his knowledge was beyond impressive. I felt that he really advocated for me and I would not hesitate to hire him again or recommend him to family, friends or colleagues. I felt a lot less anxiety about this purchase after working with him. If you want a laid back, experienced, detail-oriented inspector for a great price then look no further, hire KJ Wood.

Comments: Inspected house we made an offer on in Shorewood. Everything from the quote to scheduling was easy and prompt. We are first-time homebuyers. John was a walking encyclopedia of knowledge and practical advice relating to the home, which was built in the 1920s. The experience was everything I hoped for, and more -- he invited any and all questions (I asked A LOT), he gave a running commentary while he toured the home, and he had us look at every detail he looked at. He used an iPad to snap 15-30 pics of the home, and was able to send us a complete report with the pics included by the end of the night. Awesome. The price was extremely reasonable, and he even gave us a discount because he "loved the house so much" and had such a good time on the inspection. He does take credit cards btw. Besides being extremely knowledgeable, John is very friendly and approachable, and the whole process was enjoyable for us. We walked into the home feeling unsure of ourselves and our recent decision to make an offer. By the time John was finished, we were extremely confident in moving forward with the purchase and he really put us at ease. He was adamant about the great condition of the house, and got excited about little details we definitely missed on our own visits. That was huge for us as first timers. We can't wait to move in next month! He was so helpful, our realtor even requested his info so she could use him as one of her suggested inspectors for her future clients. John also offered a referral for some of his contacts in various trades that do good work and would offer a discount. He let us know that he's always available to answer questions or elaborate on any parts of the report, and he even offered to come over and assist with small diy projects, should we ever become stuck. I anticipate many spending many weekends on projects, hanging out, enjoying a few beers -- so maybe i will take him up on the offer some day. All in all, a great experience, can recommend without hesitation.

Comments: Provided a quote right away. Inspection was thorough, but still timely. He pointed out a few minor things and was helpful in explaining where and why some items were good, but not great. My inspection was in a relatively new home and he actually ended up knocking a little bit off the initial quote because the inspection was so smooth.

Comments: John came to the inspection site on time and was a pleasure to work with. He took the time to thoroughly inspect every area of the home. Exterior, Attic, interior rooms, all outlets, appliances, furnace, water heater, electrical panel, fencing, deck, hot tub and although the pool was closed offered to come back at no charge in the spring to do a complete inspection on the in-ground pool and equipment. He pointed out and noted areas that needed immediate attention (safety concerns), items that should be fixed but were not a limiting factor on living in the home, and items that he would recommend fixing but were more cosmetic or "nice to have" things. Overall I am VERY happy in our choice to hire John, extremely pleasant to deal with on the phone, quick to respond to text and emails, and even better in person. He offered numerous times to come back and answer any questions my wife and I may have, offered to speak with the lender/listing agent and owner on any of the findings that he discovered. I never felt rushed during the inspection and genuinely fell like I made a friend with John and look forward to working with him in the future! I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of his services without hesitation!

Comments: John was amazing through the whole process. He was very informative and made sure I understood everything before proceeding to the next inspection point. He was at least 25% cheaper than most and I've used other inspectors and they didn't compare and they charged more. Highly recommend

Comments: John was knowledgable and more than willing to give a helping hand even after the original inspection with minor tasks around the house. John has a great personality and was able to beat competition prices by about 100 dollars. John was professional, and a greta guy to learn from and work with. Easy to see why he is rated the best.

Comments: BEST INSPECTOR AROUND. John is the best Inspector I could have possibly hired!!! He is 100% genuine and you can tell he is here to help you. I am a first time home buyer so he made sure to educate me on everything going on. I went with my Realtor and my parents and by the end of the day they all wanted his card as well because everyone wanted John's services. He is just one of a kind. you would be insane if you took your services anywhere else. Great and thorough inspector but an even better person. I can't say enough good things about KJ Wood.

Review Date: 12/16/2014 | Author: Yael M.

Comments: John was very friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. He is a bit old school, as my realtor pointed out, since he brought a book to make notes rather than a laptop and he didn't take any photos, as some inspectors do. But he saw what was needed, made good recommendations, and was very happy to share anything and everything.

Review Date: 12/02/2014 | Author: Amanda W.

Review Date: 11/07/2014 | Author: David speckman S.

Comments: Knowledgeable and very communicative. Clearly explaining what he was looking and and doing. A pleasure to deal with while arranging for the inspection and scheduling the visit. Did follow up very quickly on a question not able to be answered during inspection. Serious but with a food sense of humor which are good traits. Hope my relator was also favorably impressed and will make future recommendation as I would recommend this firm but don't have many opportunities to make these recommendations

Comments: Informative and professional. As first time homebuyers, we were really looking at the inspection as our "second opinion" so it was wonderful when right away you could tell he not only knows his trade but actually enjoys what he does! Thorough and friendly service. John will stand behind his work even after the inspection if you have questions down the road. On top of that, we found him to be very affordable. Highly recommended!

Comments: First time home buyers, and we had the most amazing and educational experience with John. I am thoroughly impressed by his depth of knowledge, passion for what he does, and his willingness to answer all of our questions. We had about a 3 hour inspection slow walk through of everything. His professionalism, friendliness, and courtesy to my wife was simply outstanding. He offered to come back w/ future help on many levels, and he even offered to go paint shopping with us to pick brand and explain the high gloss, flat, satin, etc. and which rooms for what type of paint.

Comments: John took his time to review all areas of the property, and handed us a manual on his findings as he toured the various areas. He made me feel confident in my home purchase because he was experienced with home inspections, and helped by telling us how to improve the flaws. He also stated to call him anytime we have a question on the property, which made me feel that if a problem arises, I don't have to worry about how to handle it. I recommend them.

Review Date: 06/23/2014 | Author: Mary B.

Comments: I made contact with Mr. Wood through the Home Advisor web site. He is the only one I spoke to, even though others had tried to contact me through the Home Advisor. I like the way he presented himself on the phone, followed up with good emails, and after reading his reviews I asked him to do the home inspection for me. I was expecting him to do a good job and he did so. I have nothing bad to say about his work, and all the good things that others have said about the quality of his work, I found to be true.

Comments: John was on time and professional. He is also one heck of a guy. During and after the inspection he will go over each and every thing he found / didn't find. The inspection lasted about 2.5-3 hours and he didn't miss a thing! He also would tell me how to remedy a problem area and even offered to help free of charge. I'm a disabled Veteran and live on a very fixed income. KJ Wood (John) has a very reasonable price vs the other inspectors I had contacted. The individual service was through the roof and I would definitely recommend him to anybody looking to buy a home.

His presentation though not the least expensive was the most professional and what I most appreciated was that he did it in consultation with me.

Again - John has kept me informed whenever a delay or change of plan has occurred. My pergola should be finished today - it looks wonderful.
