What our Clients are saying about us…..

“Mike was very professional and helpful when it came to inspecting my first home.  It made my first-time home buying experience much less stressful.  I would highly recommend Mike from DLM Home Inspection to anyone looking to purchase a home.” – C.M. Bourbonnais, IL

“I also like the report he provided after inspection. Not only did he turn it around that night after the inspection, he provided photos or the problem areas as well as general maintenance tips for the furnace, hot water heater, etc. I still look at the report a few times a year to make sure I am keeping up with the general maintenance. I would highly recommend DLM, ask for Mike he’s great.” – T.K Huntley, IL

“We were extremely pleased with how thorough he was with his findings. Within 24 hours after the inspection, he sent us a full report complete with photographs of each issue, information on how to resolve it, and even a list of area service providers….With Mike’s report, we feel we walked into the deal with our eyes wide open! We’ve lived here for two months and refer to his report often for information on what needs to get fixed and how to go about it. My husband and I would hire him again in a heartbeat.” A.R. Lake in the Hills. IL

“Mike was perfect – showed up on time, walked me around every piece of the condo, was quick and efficient but also helpful (for example, explained the process for quick ways to fix issues he found that we could elect to do). Perfect inspection experience.”  – A.G. Chicago, IL

“Mike was nice, respectful, and able to explain in detail the appropriate method of remediation for the issues that were noted. It was a smooth and informative process and obvious that he was very knowledgeable about what he does. A+!” – M.W. Chicago, IL

“The report that we received from Mike was amazing.  It had a detailed report including pictures of the problems/issues. Not being technical people, Mike reviewed each finding with us and put us at ease.  Mike made suggestions on critical repairs that the seller should pay for and ended up saving us thousands of dollars.  With his years of experience, he also offered advice on how long we might have before some of those items needed to be replaced, as well as a budgetary number.  We now live in our dream home and couldn’t be happier. We’ve passed his name on to as many friends and family as possible, and have nothing but good things to say about him!”  – S.K. Naperville, IL

“Mike was great. He is patient and willing to answer every question you might have. He is super knowledgeable. And he makes himself available after the inspection for follow up questions if needed.” – N.S. Chicago, IL

“Mike was very thorough and gave many helpful tips to take into consideration. He was able to get access to areas that looked inaccessible. He takes pride in his work and was being very open to all questions. The report was very detailed and has many things to look into in the future. I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone that is looking to get an inspection completed.” – E.A. Carol Stream, IL

“Mike is very thorough and professional and takes great care to explain all of the details of his report, during the inspection and afterward, and to put everything into a helpful perspective with regard to convenience, monetary and safety/security issues. If I make an offer again I will definitely re-hire him to conduct the inspection.”  – D.L. Chicago, IL

“Excellent report. Thanks for talking me through the inspection. The information you provided was extremely thorough and very helpful.”  – P.D. Forest Park, IL

“Mike was very thorough and pointed out a lot of useful things about our new property. He was able to schedule on our short timetable and arrived promptly. We had a good experience with our inspection and the report was very helpful (complete with pictures).”  – W.C. Chicago, IL

“Mike did a great job. Our appraisal went very smoothly because Mike was efficient, thorough, and easy to work with.” – K.M. Chicago, IL

“…We hired Mike from DLM to do a home inspection.  He showed up early to the inspection and started immediately. He was very friendly, yet professional. He explained to us what he was going to do, and then began a very thorough inspection.  Not only did he find issues with the house that I would not have thought to look for, he advised the types of problems that could occur if the issues were not tended to.  When his inspection was finished, he again went over his report showing several pictures of each problem. He answered every question we had with through information.  We left the inspection and by the time we got home, Mike had emailed me a very detailed report (including several photos).  We were very impressed with Mike, his professionalism and his knowledge.  We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspector.” – K.R. Yorkville, IL

“Awesome!! I can’t say enough good things about Mike C. and this company. He is a reliable person and I definitely trust his expertise in our home search. It’s nice to know someone is looking out for us as we comb through potential homes. Thank you!!!” – J.B. Chicago, IL

“Mike was a true professional. His inspection was thorough and detailed, but we really appreciated the additional advice he provided on maintaining the home once we’re living in it. We would recommend Mike 100%.” – J.S. Chicago, IL

“We recently used Mike to inspect our new home and could not have been happier with the service or the quality of the inspection.  Mike was able to make it to the property on very shot notice, did a very thorough job looking over everything and turned around a long, detailed report (with pictures) in a matter of days.  Ultimately, we had to request a several thousand dollar credit from the sellers based on some of the items that Mike cited in his report.  Being able to rely upon an inspection report that was detailed, credible and supported by analysis and pictures went a long way towards convincing the seller to meet our demands. ” – M.C. Hinsdale, IL

“Mike was punctual, efficient, knowledgeable, and thorough with the inspection. I was very impressed by his professionalism. His report on the Gold Coast condo unit was very detailed and he provided potential solutions to the problems. His website is very easy to use. I would definitely refer my family and friends to him and rely on his services again in the future when necessary.” – J.K. Chicago, IL

“My friend has told me all the great things about Mike, therefore, we decided to hunt him down to perform our inspection.  It was an excellent decision we have made.  Mike shows his professionalism in countless ways.  He arrived way before the appointment time, explained to us his actions/opinions as he inspected the various areas, answered all of our questions (even when they are dumb) thoroughly, sent us the inspection report the day of.  Not only that, he is very transparent with his reporting, agreeing to add est cost in the supplementary section and also is still in contact when we needed his help with referrals toward the end.   

“Great guy to work with, and is extremely knowledgeable, Highly recommend!” – S.L. Chicago, IL

“Mike was great. Very patient in explaining each nuance of our (very old!) home to us. He was prompt in his follow-up and even available to answer questions we had, after the fact. He also offered referrals for contractors, and based on the high level of service Mike provided, I will certainly take him up on connections to his colleagues.” – C.J. Chicago, IL

“Mike did a very thorough job with our home inspection. Also, he was able to quickly identify those things that may present a genuine danger to the home, which helped us negotiate with our seller to have some repairs fixed. He came well equipped at the time, which made the inspection process very fluid. I would definitely recommend Mike for others who need a home inspection.” – L.D. Chicago, IL

“Mike conducted our home inspection and we were very impressed by him.  He was extremely thorough and took his time to explain everything during the process.  He was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the home.

“Mike was really flexible and efficient with appointments for inspections. We contacted him on Sunday night around 10pm and we had everything set to go on Monday by 9am! When he inspected the condo, he was very thorough and watched every detail in the condo. He gave great feedback on the condo and gave us tips on remodeling with his 20+ years experience . He’s the one you’d want to have your prospective housing inspected!” – L.T. Chicago, IL

“Mike was very quick to respond to a short-term inspection request and showed a great deal of knowledge throughout the review. His report was very thorough and easy to understand for a first time home buyer.” – B.B. Chicago, IL

“I feel very lucky we found Mike. He is very professional, patience and super nice. He replies to my emails promptly and always called me back the same day after I left a message. I am a first time home buyer, so I had tons of questions. Mike guided me through and I was pretty sure what I was buying when I accepted the contract. He came more than 15 minutes early, fully equipped. He climbed up the roof, the attic and entered the crawl. He caught a bunch of problems big and small. We finally had an attorney list of fixing for about 30 items. That saved me a lot money than being surprised after we move in. The listing agent became very emotional to Mike since he found a big issue about the roof, but he handled it very calmly and professionally. If you wanna be sure what you are buying, you won’t want to miss Mike. The most important, he is not going to disappear after you pay:) We recommend Mike to everyone.” – M.M. Glenview, IL

“Mike was great and definitely the best professional we worked with during the entire home buying process.” – A.D. Chicago, IL

“I gave Mike a 5-star review on a condo he previously inspected for me, because he was so thorough and found so many little things, it led to me eventually cancelling the deal. For this place, he paid the exact same attention to detail even though the property was in much better shape (move-in-ready). He was still able to find a few minor things that led to a small credit at closing. But knowing that he did the inspection, and did not find anything major, made me that much more comfortable with the purchase and living there for years to come. Seriously, do yourself a favor and hire Mike for your inspection.” – D.P. Chicago, IL

Not only did he have the best price, he was so thorough and offered pictures and detailed descriptions of any repairs/suggestions. He even offered insight on how to clean certain appliances and what updates to make in the future. He provides an electronic document with pictures that is very easy to follow and understand. He is great!” – P.T. Chicago, IL

“As with our previous inspection with Mike, he was very thorough and provided a great level of detail for our inspection. After the inspection was completed we have a great checklist of items to review and complete as weekend projects. With two inspections completed by Mike, we recommend his services.” – J.R. Melrose Park, IL

“Polite and easy to work with. Great professional.” – T.S. Chicago, IL

“Mike was awesome to work with. My husband and I both trusted him and felt his inspection was incredibly thorough. We would definitely hire Mike again and would recommend him to others.” – C.M. Brookfield, IL

“Having had experiences with other home inspectors in the past, we definitely could see and tell that Mike’s inspection is much more detail-oriented and considerate. From the critical deal breaker findings, to the information on the areas/equipment throughout the home (e.g. ages and serial numbers of A/C units, water heater, furnace; locations and instructions of meters, shutoffs, etc.), and everything in between – we were for sure satisfied and informed well about our new house. As a result we were able to get the seller to fix most of the problems Mike found due to his accurate and detailed description of the problems, with to-the-point illustration photos. Plus, Mike’s rates are the great, actually the best we could find for his grade of expertise and reviews.” – C.F. Chicago, IL
