Thanks for the report. I just went through it quickly and it looks great and very thorough. I really appreciate your work today - it's so valuable to have the assistance of someone with your knowledge and experience. Plus I enjoyed learning a lot for myself!
I'll definitely give you call if/when we buy another house and I'll recommend you to my friends in the meantime.
Just a note to say thank you for your extensive report and for sending it so promptly – talk about “instant service with a smile!” Also, thank you very much for taking the time to explain everything to me and for addressing all my questions and concerns.
Perhaps we will meet again, as I continue my (seems-like-forever) search.
Thank you for all your help. I found the home inspection report superior to others we have received in the past. We will definitely use you again.
This is an excellent and thorough report. Thanks for the great work! It's worlds beyond the inspection report we had done when we purchased our first home a few years back.
Thanks for moving ahead without the check. Let me know if you haven't received the check by early next week.
Thanks again for coming out today and providing your professional opinion on this property. Your insight and suggestions are invaluable, and I already have my To Do list started for when we take over ownership of the property!
Best wishes for continued success in your business. I will refer people to you as often as possible.

Thank you for your thorough inspection today. It was a pleasure meeting you and I really enjoyed your inspection style. As a broker who closes in excess of 30 transactions per year, it was truly refreshing to meet you today. All the best for your success in the home inspection business!
