Anytime that you are purchasing a property, I understand that it is a HUGE investment. Everyone involved needs to know every aspect of the property.  I take pride in providing this service.  The majority of my business is from client referrals and from online searches.  I work directly for the client.  My job is to insure that the client understands every item that may be reported.  My job does not end after the report is completed.  Should you have any questions days or months down the road, you are encouraged to give me a call and I will do whatever it takes to insure that you are completely comfortable with the property.

Recent reviews by Systematic Home Inspection clients

"I can not recommend Systematic Home Inspectors enough. John is the owner, and I'm pretty sure, the only inspector in his company. You're not getting some random greenhorn. You can tell he takes pride in what he does. He showed up 30 min early, but didn't require I was there the whole time, which was helpful. I am a very detail oriented person.  John's thoroughness was just what I was looking for in an inspector, someone  who would point out the things that I would point out, if I knew what to look for. I feel so much better about our impending first home purchase, and it's due in no small part to John's meticulous report. If you're looking for a straight shooting inspector, you definitely get your money's worth with John!"  3/7/17

Mandy H. - Roanoke, TX

"We used John to inspect a prospective home and he provided a very detailed, thorough report and took time to go over the items on the report with my wife who was on site. We were very pleased with his work and his prices are typical of any quality inspector. We would highly recommend him."  2/20/17

Sewon Y. - NY, NY

"John is a great inspector! We used Systematic Home Inspections for our new construction home prior to closing. He found several minor errors that can be fixed by the builder prior to closing. Although they are minor errors, they could potentially become big issues in the long run. John was very informative and took the time to explain every detail. He caught details that I wouldn't have ever thought to notice. I would highly recommend Systematic Home Inspections. The inspection cost is reasonable and will most likely pay for itself in the future with things he finds. His reports are very detailed as well. Highly recommend!!" 2/16/17

Anish J. - The Colony, TX

"John does business the way it's supposed to be done. Was easy to setup an appointment, answered emails promptly, showed up and did a great inspection, answered all of my questions, explained his findings and sent me a written report the same day! Would/will definitely recommend him to my friends and family. Great service, couldn't ask for more."  1/30/17

Dan N. - Ft. Worth, TX

"John was referred to us by our realtor and we couldn't be more happy with his help! He scouted every little bit of our home, and gave us super detailed information on how to proceed. He even was able to answer our questions on how to turn off our water and other important information about our home. Highly recommend."  12/21/16

Janelle N. - McKinney, TX

"Words fail me. John is an inspection guru. Seriously, he is amazing and much more thorough than I expected. My husband and I are buying a home and we had a rudimentary understanding at best of how inspections work. Thankfully, we found John here on Yelp and he is worth every single penny. Check his other reviews and see just how incredible he is. The positive testimonials are 100% accurate. He is a contortionist crawling under itty-bitty spaces and walking over the entire roof. Oh, by the way, he changes shoes during the inspection so he doesn't track dirt inside the house. Who does that? LOL! He really is very thoughtful and for first time buyers like us, he breaks everything down in detail. Takes photos of absolutely everything that you wouldn't have noticed."  10/22/16

Amanda A. - Wylie, TX

"John did a great job inspecting our new house and he worked around our schedule since the builder kept changing the closing dates. John was very detailed and thorough in his report and went over the findings with me in person. Piece of mind = money well spent. Recommend him 100%!"  8/29/16

Daryl G. - McKinney, TX

"I had a non-urgent and small inspection job and asked John to contact me the next time he was in my area.  John came by a week later and gave me great feedback on some preventative things I could do to the house/driveway which will definitely eliminate some future headaches for our house.  Very responsive and easy to work with, highly recommend!"  8/29/16

Sean B. - McKinney, TX

"John was fantastic for our home inspection! Even our realtor was extremely impressed with him:) He was quick to respond to my inquiry and scheduling was seamless.  He gave us a very thorough report before the end of the day! Would highly recommend!"  8/17/16

Cheri C. - Frisco, TX

"We received a very detailed inspection report from John, which we really appreciated especially since we are not physically located where the house we were buying is located!  He was very responsive both via email and phone, and answered several follow up questions we had post-inspection.  I highly recommend him."  8/14/16

Mylene V. - Oakand, CA

"I rarely write reviews, but wanted to give John credit for his inspection process, report, and communication.  He has 5 stars for a reason. His report pointed out items not listed on the seller's inspection report.  The information gave me a better negotiation position with the seller.  Order your report from Systematic Home Inspections."  8/1/16

Bill V. - Grand Prairie, TX 

"I would not trust anyone other than John to do home inspections for me, and would recommend him to anyone I know. I was extremely excited when I put an offer on a home and they accepted! John inspected and found the home to be a complete nightmare! I never would have known withtgrgout his meticulous attention to detail. I am beyond grateful to John!!"   7/12/16

Jessica M. - Dallas, TX

"We are very happy with the quality of our inspection performed by John on our new build. He spent 5 hours inspecting our home and provided us with a very detailed and informative report that same day. His report listed every defect he observed throughout the house along with an informative explanation about how serious each defect was and what could happen down the road if the defect was not corrected. He also provided us with supplemental information regarding the materials that were used to build our home. John also took the time to speak with the contractors and builder who were on sight at the time of his inspection. We recommend John highly and without reservation and will definitely be calling him to re-inspect our home before the warranty expires."  6/21/16

Angela M. - Sherman, TX

"We found John on the Internet he had all five stars and all five stars are absolutely well deserved !!!!! he is A-number 1 for sure!!!!!He gave us a detailed inspection and a detailed report and emailed the report to us that evening after inspecting our home that we are buying He is very professional , sweet , and understanding. He spent 4 hours on the inspection for us and we really appreciate all his hard work thank you John for being a standup great inspector if you're looking for a wonderful inspector for your home or business  to check everything in detail, then  you have found your company!!!! Thanks again John."  6/9/16

Joseph D. - Plano, TX

"I had taken John's service a month back for a Frisco home inspection as a prospective buyer. I write this review now as I now have another similar service to compare it with. I had contacted  John after looking up Yelp for house inspection service in the area. John is a thorough professional, his work is detailed, his communication clear and precise, and the report covers all issues with specifics. He had all the time to go through each and every finding in detail with me, and the same were very well documented in his report.  I will strongly recommend John's service for house inspections."  4/17/16

Ajay D. - Coppell, TX

"We had John inspect our new build a month after we moved in. He did a great job and was very thorough. We were able to take his report to the builder and have them fix everything since we were under warranty :) We will definitely use them again for our next house!"  4/12/16 

Christina B. - McKinney, TX

"He arrived early and went straight to work.  I had no idea an inspection could be so thorough.  I was beyond please with his assessments.  Hire John S. you will get your money's worth!"  4/15/16

Tracey G. - Ft. Worth

"John was very professional and accommodating.  We only had a 5 day option and he was able to come the next day.  His report was detailed with photos.  My father who works as an energy auditor said it was one of the best inspection reports he has seen.  We ultimately did not buy the home due to problems found during the inspection.  He saved us from a very poor investment! I would definitely recommend John! Great experience even though we did not purchase the home."   2/23/16

Jordan D. - San Francisco, CA 

"Professional and reliable! You know you can depend on him when his list of defects/recommendations are acknowledged by builder. He took his time to explain his findings and make sure you know what they are all about. Will use him again in the future! Highly recommended!!!"  1/24/16

Kevin N. - Irving, TX

"Reliable, professional and good lines of communication. Delivered on his work and was timely with written report (including pictures). Would recommend but you have to schedule quickly to get day and time you want!" 1/23/16

Bee A. - Richardson, TX

"Great communication and very efficient. We couldn't be at the inspection, but he was still extremely thorough and it's clear he has a passion for what he does. The process couldn't have been easier and we received a prompt, fully detailed inspection report with photos over email. Highly recommended!"  12/10/15

Kasey F. - Lewisville, TX

"John responded promptly to phone calls which shows he really cares. I appreciated his advice."  11/23/15

Hahn B. - San Antonio, TX

"I contacted John after reading many of the reviews and was very impressed with his service.  John inspected our new build and was very thorough, finding many things that slipped through the cracks.  Aside from his professionalism, John is a really nice and down to earth guy who was willing to make some additional recommendations and suggestions beyond the standard home inspection process.  I'm using his report to go back to the builder to have all of the items repaired.  I will definitely use him again in the future."   11/18/15

K W. - Plano, TX

"John is very professional and thorough, I have used him on 2 inspections so far and would not hesitate to use him again. He is very detail oriented and explains well what the issues are and what kind of repair is required to address them."  9/22/15

John C. - Irving, TX

"As mentioned in previous reviews, John is worth the 5 stars.  Every bit.  I rarely leave reviews,  but nowadays when the expectation is set and an individual/business not only meets that expectation but goes beyond, it is very deserving that other people hear about the good experience we had.  Especially as easy as it is to find "dirt" on just about every business today.   We are purchasing a 2-3 year old home, but just wanted to make sure with a 2nd opinion from a trained eye that we weren't stepping into a mess.  John was very prompt in responding, arrived early to the inspection, as stated in other reviews very thorough, and spent a good amount of time walking us through his observations.  I feel absolutely confident in our purchase.  I will definitely use John for all my home inspections in the future."   8/6/15

J S. -  Frisco, TX

"We used John on two different houses. On the first, as we were going over his pictures, he discovered his camera wasn't recording when he tried to film a small leak under the house. Even though he was already done with the inspection, he put his suit and mask back on and crawled back under the house to get a good video in case we needed it. He saved us years of headaches and wasted money...we ended up walking away from that house because he did such a great job finding issues. He's incredibly thorough, and he went over all of his findings with me in person. He also patiently answered all of my really dumb questions. Can't recommend enough."  7/29/15 

Brian S. - Dallas, TX

"I needed a good home inspection on my first house purchase.  These yelp reviews on Systematic Home Inspections are not fake, John is the real deal. He walked me through the house and explained everything that he was going to include in the report.  He was extremely thorough almost too thorough as he scared about the purchase, but thats his job!  That evening he emailed me the report and it looked great. By his recommendations, I brought in an electrician and HVAC guy to further investigate concerns of his.  His concerns ended up proving right, I sent John's report, and the electrician/hvac estimates over to the Seller and ended up netting upgrades and refunds on the close of the house.  John is a stud, will recommend to anyone buying a house."  5/24/15

Robert M. - Dallas, TX

"Called John based on the good reviews on yelp.. John did a an amazing job, not only inspecting the house but also breaking everything down and explaining it. He even checked the addict when there was tires and boxes in the way of addict door, it didn't stop him. He went the whole mile.. Thanks John I highly recommend."  5/11/15

Gabriel B. - Lewisville, TX

"Great job. Took time to walk me through areas of the house.  Knowledgable.  Did not rush through inspection, but then got review to me that night - very prompt."  4/22/15

Mark M. - Chicago, IL

"I am a widow buying my first new (downsized) home for retirement so finding a qualified inspector who could explain issues to me was of utmost importance.   I was not disappointed by previous reviews.  John arrived early for the appointment and spent more time than scheduled.  He inspected everything I would expect and a lot of things I did not expect.  Because the home was not quite complete (about a week before closing), he gave me several suggestions to discuss with my builder during this final phase.  He also gave me several hints about keeping the home in good shape for a long time after I close.  When he finished his inspection, he spent significant time with me, walking me through each of the photos he took and the findings associated with them.  His report was thorough and complete with photos and I received it just five hours after the inspection was completed. I highly recommend John as an inspector for new or existing home inspection."  4/4/15

Deborah B. - McKinney, TX

"I thought John did a great job on my home inspection. He found several items to repair, including a cracked window, shower with no hot water, rotted siding, clogged drains and most importantly, showed where there was hail damage to the roof and fence.  After the roofer he recommended met with the sellers insurance adjuster, we were able to get a total roof replacement and fence stained prior to closing. I highly recommend!"  1/25/15

Bodie P. - McKinney, TX

"John is awesome and fantastic.  He did two inspections for us--the first one saved us from a house that had a recalled electrical panel and a terrible roof that the owner did not want to fix.  He did a discounted second inspection for us and always sends a full detailed report (with pictures) the same day.  I'm more of a "hands off" person, but my fiance likes to "be in the mix" and ask lots of questions.  John was more than helpful explaining things to him and went over each report with us in detail when he was finished, showing us all potential problems in the house.

We ended up buying the second house (after working with the previous homeowners to fix a few things).  We've now lived in this house for six months and have had no surprises or any problems we weren't prepared for based off of John's expert inspection.  I cannot recommend John highly enough--he is without a doubt THE BEST and worth every single penny to have peace of mind when purchasing a home!"  1/2/15

Bri A - Richardson, TX

"I had a fantastic experience with John.  We were purchasing a 1 year old 2013 build home so it was fairly new, but after reading horror stories on line on various new builds we decided it would be a good investment to find a good inspecto.

John was incredibly thorough, and went through all the small issues with us during the last 30 minutes of the appointment.  He had nice things to say about the condition of the home and was quite knowledgeable about  the codes and requirements of the city. After reading all the wonderful reviews on yelp I am glad we went with Systematic Home Inspections. Will definitely be referring John to any other friends who need their home inspected!" 12/16/14

Philip C. - Frisco, TX

"My family and I are relocating from Virginia Beach, about to close on a new build home that we have only had the chance to see once, briefly, in person. While the home inspection wasn't necessary to close, I knew I would feel better knowing someone had inspected it. Being that my family and I were in transit, I was not able to be there for the inspection.

John was scheduled to be there at 9am but was able to arrive early and begin the inspection at 830. By early afternoon I had received a detailed report with plenty of pictures of any defects that he found. I was able to email that report to the builder to make sure that they were attended to before the initial walk through. I will also be able to conduct the walk through with the home inspection report in hand. Simply having the piece of mind gained from John's inspection was well worth the inspection fee. Overall, the entire experience with Systematic Home Inspections was fantastic. John worked around a couple of schedule changes while being incredibly professional throughout the process. He has my highest recommendation for anyone looking to have a home inspected."  11/13/14

David W. - Anna, TX

"Great job! John demonstrated great knowledge & great communication I will definitely recommend Systematic Home Inspections."  9/19/14  

David B. - Anna, TX

"Had a very good experience with John and Systematic Home Inspections. He has an electric lock key-thing, so the realtor didn't need to be there... bonus, one less thing for me to coordinate. He showed up on his own on the morning of the inspection (I assume on time), and I showed up toward the end of it and he walked me through everything.  Pointed out issues and necessary repairs.  His knowledge of codes and explanations of the problem areas and concerns was much appreciated.  

The report had good photographs included and a detailed summary.  Matter of fact, his report helped me negotiate $5,000 off asking price.  Very happy overall."  9/3/14

Paul M. - Dallas, TX

"John was very detailed and very nice, he took his time to go over the entire report. Highly recommended!"  7/1/14

Del P. - Allen, TX

"I had John inspect an older home I was purchasing. The home hadn't been occupied for a few years, so I needed a very thorough inspection. John went into great detail in his report, and even covered some specific areas that I had questions on. I live in a different state, and he was great to communicate and handle everything over the phone and email. I will definitely be recommending John in the future."  6/24/14

John H. - San Francisco, CA

"John is a professional and thorough inspector. His report includes everything including major structural/potential problems and other critical things in details. He is also very prompt and friendly for each communication. I recommend him for thorough inspection."  6/17/14

Gyungsung B. - Richardson, TX

"John showed up on time and completed everything in due time.  He answered all my follow-up questions and took some time to walk around the outside of the house with me to answer some lingering questions I had." 5/1/14

Chad M. - Wylie, TX

"We had a great experience with John.  We hired him to inspect the house we were buying and:
- it was easy to communicate with him (which I did by email)
- he seemed to be very knowledgeable and thorough, and his comments giving color and context around how serious different things were was very helpful.
- he put together a thorough report and sent it back to me that same evening.  If we had another need for a home inspection, we'd hire John again!"

Eduardo B. - Denton, TX  

"John was able to accommodate short notice, very professional, called ahead to say in route, showed up on time, spent time and documented all / any findings. He was very professional and supplied the detailed report of the inspection. He was able to answer all of my questions in detail when needed and provided a handy common watch out report. He made my home buying experience much easier and set my mind at ease. I would use John again in a heartbeat!"  3/20/14

Masayuki M. - Allen, TX

"John showed up perfectly on time. He informed me that he had arrived and was going to do surveying outside first. He informed me about what he had found outside and continued inside. The whole process took about 3 hours. John was very thorough and he did not skip anything. I had an inspection report emailed to me within the day and have already contacted my builder for getting the repairs underway."  3/17/14

Mirza Q. - McKinney, TX

"I had a contract on a $158k house in Carrollton.  Everything seemed absolutely fine to me.  The Seller's Disclosure showed no problems.  I hired Systematic Home Inspections because they were the highest rated on yelp. That rating is deserved.  John found problems with everything, the foundation, wiring, plumbing, roof, leaks, dead rodents. I am backing out of the house now.  While I regret losing the money on the option and the inspection in the short term, it was worth the money to avoid the long-term expenses that would be associated with the property."  2/17/14

Paul D. - Dallas, TX

"John was thorough and professional! The report was delivered in a timely manner and proved to be a useful resource for our builder. I'd recommend John to anyone involved in purchasing a new home." 1/19/14

Mark A. - Parker, TX

"Thorough, professional, competitive pricing, on-time, and did I mention thorough? John did an inspection on our new-build home and boy are we glad he did! Can't recommend enough! A+ 100% satisfied."  1/15/14

Paul L. - Frisco, TX

"John is very nice and very good in details. His home inspection report is professional with many photos, so it is easy to read and check the problems of the inspected house. I would recommend him highly."  1/14/14

Shouyi W. - Grapevine, TX

"John was easy to work with and provided a detailed and thorough home inspection report.  He gave a more detailed report on the roof than other home inspectors I've worked with.  Because of this I was able to those items fixed by the seller before closing.  He was also able to do a follow up inspection in a tight time frame.

There was a cold front coming in before closing and he proactively gave me some timely advice to protect the house from damage."   12/24/13

Fred C. - San Jose, CA 


"We selected Systematic Home Inspections to perform our new construction home inspection and we were not disappointed! The inspection was thorough and very detailed... exactly what you want when purchasing a home. John left no stone unturned and we feel extremely comfortable with his report. In addition to performing a thoughtful inspection, John delivered the report in short order! I highly recommend Systematic Home Inspections if you want an accurate and professional inspection prior to buying a property."   12/16/13

Cheryl H. - Frisco, TX

"We had bought a new construction home in the DFW area and wanted our own home inspector to review the work of the builder.  We called John up over the weekend and he was able to see us in just a few days.  He was very responsive throughout the whole process to all of our questions and concerns.  John also provided us with some education on why things were done and should not be done with new constructions.

John is very knowledgeable about what he does as well as being humble and honest.  Very important attributes in this line of work.  We are very appreciative of the fact that we found John on yelp and that he really delivered in the way that was described in the previous comments." 12/15/13

John G. - Allen, TX

"John was very easy to work with and flexible as well.  The inspection itself was really good, John was very thorough and took the time to answer all of my questions and show me and inspect items I pointed out. He even pulled out his ladder and moisture meter to help alleviate some fears I had on an area that looked off. The day of the inspection it was below 60, so John let me know he didn't test the ac as it could damage the units due to the temperature. John suggested coming back when the weather was more compliant to check the ac system, which he did and sent me the results for. In all he was great to work with ad I feel much better knowing I will be moving into a home John inspected!"  12/5/13

Nadeem P. - Allen, TX

"John is very detailed with his inspections and provides a thorough report. He is extremely helpful and willing to take the time to go through my list of questions so that I can stay well-informed. On top of that, he is also very responsive by email or phone. I've dealt with a previous inspector that hardly took the time to advise me on questions like John and it made me feel very uneasy. So I would definitely recommend John for any home inspections!"  11/1/13

Kristine N. - Dallas, TX  

"John came out to inspect a Victorian built in 1909 I was under contract on. I'm really glad he did because his findings on the electrical system really saved me from getting into what could have been a real mess. The place had numerous code violations and safety concerns, and was basically uninsurable as is. It was a fixer upper, which is no problem as I can handle most anything cosmetic or minor, but I don't mess with any major electrical or foundation work. Bringing the place back up to par as a property was an investment I was willing to make, but that didn't include several thousand dollars to overhaul the breaker boxes and a lot of wiring. Negotiations with the seller broke down over that issue (they were a wee bit shady), but I'm happy I didn't get myself into a money pit. John's inspection really did save the day, and I'm going to have him do the inspection on the home I'm going into contract on now."  10/15/13

Joshua M. - Richardson, TX


"Meticulous, personable, thorough and more than punctual.    John showed up early and finished on time and even went back up on the roof to re-look at an issue I was concerned about -- after I told him it wasn't necessary.  More importantly, thanks to John, I can purchase this house with a sense of comfort." 10/13/13  

Todd L. - Dallas, TX


"After doing some research on Google for a home inspector, Systematic Home Inspections was highly recommended, and now I see why. John was very professional, and knowledgeable. He was able to answer all my questions via telephone and email before our meeting. He showed up on time as promised and spent over 3.5 hours going over every square in. I would use him again and highly recommend his business."  10/10/13

Rob M. - Keller, TX


"Excellent and highly recommended"   10/2/13

Mark M. - Allen, TX 


"Very good service! Punctuate and detailed report sent on time. Reasonable price too."  9/18/13


 Derek D. - Frisco, TX


"Buying a home in DFW and I've used his services (twice!) and was thoroughly impressed with the quality and attention to detail- in one case, the home had been previously inspected.  When I'm buying a home I want to know EVERYthing - no surprises - and for that John's your guy."  9/10/13

Sara W. - Grapevine, TX


"I was building a home, and had a long and trying experience. Since we were concerned with the construction integrity we decided to get a home inspection the week before closing. This way we could have a professional to go through before the builder walkthrough. I saw that John got great reviews and called him up and asked him if he could be available. He came out to the property and was early. My husband and I are thoroughly impressed. As of yesterday I was scheduling the appointment, and today less than 24 hours later I have a printed out inspection! Talk about speedy and great service. He was extremely thorough, and we feel much better having the professional eye. Thank you John!"   8/29/13

Brandy D. - McKinney, TX


"We are moving from southern California to Dallas and are buying a property in Dallas. John was able to schedule our inspection early enough in the option contract period. He promptly informed our realtor (we couldn't be at the property for the inspection) that we should get an engineer inspect the foundation because he found some potential issue that need further investigation. On the same day of the inspection, John sent us a very through and detailed inspection report with pictures and recommendations for all the issues he found. This is an older home so the report was very long. For a person like me who is not handy at all, have almost no knowledge about the environment and houses in Dallas, John's detailed report and being able to explain everything to me on the phone are extremely valuable."  8/28/13

Hong L. - San Diego, CA


"Great work. Fit our urgent need into his busy schedule. Detailed report with pictures was super helpful. Highly recommended."  8/2/13

Jake D. - Keller, TX


"John was very professional in inspecting our first house. He was detail oriented and never rushed with the inspection. Home buying process is nerve-wracking, getting a professional home inspection adds much needed peace of mind.The thorough report generated by John helped us figure out issues that need to be fixed right away and what items in the report can wait for a while.Also the report helped us with price negotiations."  6/24/13 

Arjun K. - Coppell, TX


"I don't normally write reviews, but the positive reviews were the primary reason I chose John. He gets good reviews for good reason. He was on time, courteous, thorough, and had my inspection back to me within 24 hours. Forwarded to my builder to complete immediately as my home warranty was going to expire that week. More than satisfied with a job that was well done"  6/22/13 

Bryan J. - Mckinney, TX


"John is an excellent inspector, he did a great job, really good person, easy talking and really helpful. Thanks to him the builder is fixing 90% of the stuff he found so great job John! will do another one in less than one year with him."   6/20/13

Sergio L. - Irving, TX

"Thank you again for coming out and inspecting our potential home on such short notice. We truly appreciated your attention to detail, professionalism, and customer-focused demeanor. We would highly recommend you to anyone."  6/6/13

Joey D. - Lewisville, TX


"I was referred to John by two sets of friends. They both recently purchased, or are in the process of purchasing, a home, and used John for the inspection. They raved about him, his attention to detail, and his ability to fit in an inspection quickly. I emailed John, and we quickly hashed out an agreement for a home inspection. John was able to do a thorough inspection of the home and emailed me the report. After going through the report, and finding it to be very easy to understand, we decided on not going with that home. We found another home that we liked, emailed John immediately and scheduled an inspection. Being Memorial Day Weekend, John was able to do it Tuesday Morning. Again, very pleased with his work. I, without hesitation, will completely recommend John to you, and anyone else needing a Home Inspection."  5/30/13

Shawn A. - Garland,TX


"John did an excellent job inspecting our new home. It was extremely important to us that we were aware of every aspect of the property and he left no stone unturned. He also provided a very thorough and professional report that very clearly illustrated the items that needed to be addressed. We HIGHLY recommend his services to anyone who needs a professional evaluation and inspection of their home."  5/21/13

Jessica L. - Mckinney, TX 


"John was a pleasure to work with. He was easy to schedule and showed up on time. He went over every aspect of my inspection with me and promptly emailed me the report. He explained things thoroughly so that I would understand the issues with my home and be able to discuss them with my builder. I was very pleased with his work and have recommended him to my in-laws for their new home."  5/3/13

Amber R. - Plano, TX


"Excellent service, John came on time, did a thorough inspection of every item, I bugged him a lot with questions about what to do, how to maintain, etc, he patiently explained everything to me. He took pictures of everything that needed work documented it and compiled a neat report for me. Will refer him to anyone needing a good house inspection."     4/10/13

Biju P. - Plano, TX


"John w/ Systematic Home Inspections performed the inspection on my soon-to-be new-to-me home this past fall. I was impressed by his attention to detail with everything from preparing the property and me for the inspection to completion of the final inspection report. The seller's realtor threw several challenges at him that he handled very professionally. He was timely, organized, thorough, and responsive. He thoroughly investigated and documented areas of potential concern and then reviewed his report with me to make sure I understood each issue. I highly recommend him!"   4/8/13

Katie J. - Dallas, TX


"My husband and I are first time home buyers and need any information we can get from a reliable source. We were very impressed with John and Systematic Home Inspections. He was friendly and helpful to talk with over the phone, as well as in person. His inspection was comprehensive. He did a good job explaining everything to us and I feel confident that our home is a safe place. I don't believe you can get a better price for the excellent services rendered. I will recommend him to anyone I know purchasing a home. Thank you for the excellent job!"  3/15/13

Samantha P. -  McKinney, TX


"John was great to work with. He was quick to respond to questions via email. He arrived and started the inspection early. I wish every service I used was as great as his."    3/10/13

 Jason H. - Allen,TX


"Great experience. I bought a 1940s home in East Dallas and had John do the home inspection. He was thorough and exhaustive in his inspection and report. I shadowed him for much of the inspection and he took the time to explain to me what he was looking for at each stage. John shared his view on what was good and bad on the house and why. His prices are more reasonable than the chain inspection companies and his attention to detail is exceptional."  2/27/13

Matt J. - Dallas, TX


"We are building in the area and hired John to inspect our new home. I highly recommend John based on our overall experience. His communication was thorough, he answered questions we had with patience and detailed knowledge. He took his time inspecting the exterior, interior, roof, appliances, attic. His total time of inspection with full discussion afterwards was approximately 4 hours. I received my full report via email later that night. I also appreciated that he had three pairs of shoes that he wore throughout the inspection, which shows much regard to my house and it did not go unnoticed. 

We found John through numerous research and trusted his reviews on Yelp, and we are glad we went with him. We joked with him that we are going to make sure we advertise for him in our new subdivision but I am a firm believer that the best compliment to a business is referral. So with that, I'm spreading the word! Thanks John!   2/25/13

Susan B. - Trophy Club, TX


"John did a fantastic job with my home inspection. He was very thorough and pointed out all problems, big or small. He also answered all of our questions we had during the inspection, and gave us much appreciated advice on how we could handle the different issues he found. Setting up an appointment was very quick, he arrived ahead of time the day of, and had a detailed inspection report emailed to us the same day. I'll definitely recommend John to anyone looking for a home inspection!"   2/12/13

Chris M. - Richardson, TX


"Awesome guy to deal with. We actually never met in person. Found him on one of the web forums. We mostly emailed, scheduled home inspection for a new construction. He identified a few issues, that i would have never seen on my own. Builder was able to take care of those issues and everything went smoothly."  2/5/13

Amer K. - Carrollton, TX


"I will be honest in saying that I chose SHI because he was the cheapest. But, I was also buying a fairly new home and didn't expect a lot of issues. Regardless, John was professional and thorough in inspecting my future home. Although the house is fairly new, he showed me several minor issues, easily fixable and that will definitely help in making my new house last a lot longer. Along with the inspection report, he also sent over a home care guide. John also worked with me on payment issues and provided a receipt and the assurance that any documents with private information was shredded. I am very pleased with John and his inspection and I can't wait to move into my new home."

Kate I. - Mckinney, TX


"John did an inspection for us at the last minute on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday and we were extremely happy. We had to change schedules several times leading up to the inspection and John was always flexible and easy to work with. We hired John based on his high ratings, and found his service to be 100% as advertised.

As first time buyers, we had a lot of questions not only about things that might be wrong with the house, but also about how we can take care of the house to prevent issues John has seen in past inspections.  Not only was John incredibly thorough in his inspection and report (our builder commented that John looked at things that most inspectors do not), he spent time explaining many of the features of our house and how best to use them to a degree that not even our builder had done.  We hired an inspector for peace of mind on what is a very substantial investment. After John's inspection, we felt confident in our purchase and more informed about the house we are purchasing."   2/4/13

Josh H. - Frisco, TX


"John did my home inspection a couple of days ago and was awesome.  Very fast response, reasonable rates, and very detailed and thorough report."  1/23/13

Robert P. - Frisco, TX


"I found John through Yelp reviews and they did not let down! John responded to my request within an hour or two and was consistently a great communicator throughout setting up our appointment to follow through with the results of our inspection (having them sent within a few hours of the inspection completion!). We had John inspect our new construction home and he was extremely thorough, finding things we would not have even thought to look for. He took plenty of time walking me through the entire report, taking numerous pictures and answering all my questions. I will most definitely be calling John before our 1 year warranty runs up to have another inspection. HIGHLY recommend!" 1/16/13

Lisa F. - Grapevine, TX


"John was great! He is resourceful, responsive and very well informed. Highly Recommend!"  1/15/13

Kevin W. - Allen, TX


"John was awesome. He was on time and did an amazing job. Our Realtor also said he did a great job!!!"  1/10/13

Miranda F. - The Colony, TX 


"John did the inspection on my home today. He is very professional and really cares about his customer. John pointed out all the problems, answered all the questions I had, and told me how to take care of the house. I highly recommend him for home inspections."  1/8/13

Alex H. - Little Elm, TX


"The main reason I picked this company, aside from the good reviews, was that they had a website with detailed info and an email to contact them. I was surprised at how many inspection companies only provided a phone number and not an email. I asked John numerous question through emails. He always replied quickly and answered all my questions. John gave us some good tips and was very professional. He didn't try to rush the process and paid attention to details. He emailed the report the same day. I'd expected an inspection to be stressful, but it was fairly stress free. Overall, I would say it was a positive experience."  12/24/12

Rania K. - North Richland Hills, TX


"John inspected my new home back in August and I was real pleased with the service he provided. He showed up to my home promptly and I felt care was given to how he inspected and tested the various parts of the home. I found John's report to be thorough and he pointed out a few minor issues that the builder would need to correct. I appreciated the peace of mind I had after John inspected the home and I would recommend his services."  12/15/12 

Jason S. - Carrollton, TX


"Got me set up very quickly over the weekend on very short notice. Quite impressed. Real estate office mentioned he did a very thorough job!"  12/11/12

Michael M. - Richardson, TX


"John was awesome! Friendly, knowledgeable and understanding of FTB endless questions. My realtor put him on her " to use" sheet she was so impressed. I recommended to my brother and they liked him too."  11/26/12

Paul K. - McKinney, TX


"John conducted a thorough review, exploring every accessible part of the home and garage, identifying both its strengths and defects. He helped to put the defects in perspective -- which ones needed attention to prevent further problems, which were unpredictable, and which were unlikely to be troublesome. He answered all of our questions clearly. The written report that followed was equally clear and complete, and well-documented. We would recommend him without reservation."  10/28/12

Cher S. - Rowlett, TX

"John performed a home inspection for my daughter and her fiance for a potential home purchase. From the very first phone call John was a pleasure to work with. He was very helpful and informative, and scheduled an inspection for the very next day. On the day of the inspection he was punctual, thorough, professional, friendly, and polite. He thoroughly explained his inspection findings in person at the house, and then emailed a copy with more information to my daughter. My daughter and her fiance ended up not buying that house, but plan to call John for an inspection when they find another one. " (Angie's List)

Beverly M. - Desoto,TX

"John did a wonderful job on our inspection. He was polite, thorough, clear, punctual, and flexible with the scheduling. I highly recommend him."  10/11/12

Brandee M. - Richardson,TX


"John performed a very thorough inspection. I closely monitored our new construction house from the very beginning and I am very particular on all the details. I expect the same from an inspector. John impressed me with his professionalism. He made adjustments when the inspection date was changed a few times, was early at the house, climbed on the roof of our two story house, checked all electrical outlets, found a water leak, identified a circuit breaker size issue, answered all my questions, gave maintenance tips, spent more time doing the inspection compared to other inspectors I interviewed, got the report the same day and more. I highly recommend John."   10/10/12

Rod V. - Carrollton,TX


"I found John on Yelp and after checking around decided to go with him. I am glad that i made the right decision as John was very professional and thorough in his inspection. Along with many other little things, he identified some cracks and recommended structural engineer to check the foundation of the home. as it turns out, there was a shifting issue with the foundation and we are thankful for him pointing it out for us.

The inspection report was also thorough with pictures and suggestion solutions for fixing the issues. Definitely recommend him."  10/5/12

Hassan F. - Dallas,TX


"I contacted John so that he could make an inspection of a condo we were interested in purchasing. Despite the fact that it was a small property, he definitely took his time doing a good job. He talked us through the whole process and patiently answered all of our questions. He caught several problems with the condo and we decided not to purchase due to his work. Will definitely use again for future home inspection needs."   9/5/12

Kristine T.  - Garland,TX


 "John was absolutely amazing to work with. He scheduled the appointment to fit my schedule. He was great in beginning the inspection and letting me come at the end so that I did not hav eto wait for 3 hours. He confirmed my appt the night before. I was extremely pleased with how thorough he was in inspecting the whole home and explaining every single aspect of his inspection to me. He was very knowledgable about the building standards and what i should expect from the homebuilder. I got my full report within a few hours along with a home care guide. I would recommend John to anyone looking for a thorough home inspection by a hospitable, knowledgeable person."    8/21/12


Eric R. - Plano,TX

"This is the first home inspection I've ever had done. John did an excellent job. He is very detail-oriented and took a lot of pictures. He took time to answer all of the questions that I had as a nervous first-time buyer. I don't know how he got the report put together so quickly, but he must have the process down. It came later that same evening. It had all of the pictures he had taken and all of the notes he had taken. He seemed to have a really good knowledge of current building codes/violations and of common problems that different home builders and developments have had historically. Overall it is clear that he likes what he does and takes pride in it."   7/28/12 

Grant K. - Allen,TX


"John did a great job inspecting my new home. He spent about 4 hours going through every inch of my house. Very friendly and professional. I really appreciated the electronic report because it is much easier to find than a paper one."    6/12/2012 (yelp)

Daniel H.  - Frisco,TX

"My husband and I found our latest home in McKinney and needed a home inspection.  I saw the reviews here on yelp and called John, leaving a message.  He got back with me within 10 minutes and I scheduled the inspection.  I was out of town and he had the inspection report emailed to me that  same afternoon as the inspection.  The whole process was smooth and the report was easy to understand, making us feel better about the whole home-buying process... which is always a pain.  He found several items that the seller ended up fixing prior to moving in.  Thanks again John! "  6/1/12 

Anja S.  - McKinney,TX

"What a wonderful experience! John was extremely professional, detailed and thorough throughout the entire process. His report was easy to read, understand and the pictures were so helpful. He was timely and easy to work with as well as followed up within the expected time frame. Also answered all our questions.  Highly recommend utilizing Systematic Home Inspections!

Jill G. - Roundrock,TX

"John was extremely thorough and professional in handling our home inspection and his assessment helped us prepare in working with various contractors for our home renovation. He walked us through all of the photos and made suggestions for remedies in the issues he found. I would highly recommend Systematic Home Inspections to anyone going through the buying process. "   4/23/12 (yelp)

Regan G. - Dallas,TX

John showed up on time (actually early), proceeded his thorough household inspection; interior, exterior, roof, plumbing, irrigation etc. professional, came up with things I'd have never noticed or found until it was too late - and things I think others would have passed up (quiet, but buzzing circuit breaker box). no hassles with scheduling and didn't act like he was in a rush- took the time necessary to complete the job, rather than working on some schedule. these things are important and the work/pride shows.. Also, tech savvy which sometimes is lacking with inspectors work - you'll get digital formats of all report details..  3/30/12

Aaron E.  - Plano,TX

I thought John did an amazing job on inspecting our new house! I was being told by the sales office I didn't need one but I went ahead and got one and glad I did. John found some things that I wouldnt have noticed that could become problems later on and found things I wouldn't have ever known to look for. He took pics to show along with a detailed report and got it the same day! He was very professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend!!  3/18/12 (Google)

Casey P. - Melissa,TX

John's professionalism is stellar. From the time he entered my home, until he left, he made me feel secure in his knowledge of every aspect of his inspection. Explaining as he inspected along with his demeanor and knowledge of every aspect of home inspection will lead me to recommend him highly to anyone needing his service.Kudos John! 1/12/12 (Yahoo Local)

Jennifer B. - McKinney,TX

John was wonderful to work with. I look forward to recommending him to someone in need of a home inspection. We got a thorough report, pictures, and the much needed personal attention we needed as first time home buyers.

It’s hard to find people you can trust. John is one in a million!1/3/12

John did a great job showing me what needed to be repaired before closing on my new house. I used his report to negotiate with the sellers to make repairs before closing. He was helpful explaining everything at the inspection and when I called him the next day. Thanks John.  (kudzu.com) 10/26/11

John is without a doubt the most trustworthy, capable and professional individual I have ever hired to perform a service. John was on-time and extremely thorough which helped identify several issues within my home that needed repair. Thanks to the detailed Home Inspection Report that John provided, I was able to know exactly who to contact to make repairs as well as avoid possible major issues down the road. I recommend John without reservation.” September 4, 2011

”My experience with John as a home inspector was excellent. He handled the inspection of my townhouse with a high professional attitude, and was always ready to answer my numerous questions even when it meant that he had to stop what he doing. A friend recommended Systematic Home Inspections to me, and I am so glad that she did. I will not hesitate to recommend John to any of my friends. He is not only extremely professional, but very reliable and dependable. He made my first time home buying experience a great one!” 7/12/11 (from Yelp)
