"Chris, I just wanted to say thank you for getting me the report last night, I know you were on a tight schedule. It was very helpful this morning when I met with my contractor (who incidentally was very impressed with your report; so I gave him your information). Thanks again and have a great weekend."

Thank-you very much for your time on Monday. I appreciate you conducting your inspection on such short notice as well. I learned a few things as well!!
Thank you very much for your very thorough inspection and report. The pictures in the attachment will be extremely helpful in addressing the repairs that will be needed. Looking forward to hearing from you this week with the results of the radon and mold tests.
Thank you again!

"Thank you, Chris, for all of your help. We learned so much today.
We are going to talk over everything with Rebecca and then get it over to the builder.
Hope you have a great weekend.
Thank you for the documentation, you did a great job. Can you give me more details on item 15: Burners not turning off properly. Does this mean the flame lowers but you have physically blow out the light when it should shut the gas?
Thanks for your inspection on Monday. Your knowledge and willingness to help are impressive. I am very pleased with your reports and will definately consider you or refer you in the future.
Something unbelievable happened after the inspection. My agent discussed with seller agent your inspection results and requested $10K reduction in pricing. The seller agreed completely with this and reduced the price by $10K on Tuesday.
"Mike, I think you know Chris Curles. I had the most interesting inspection yesterday. He now uses an infrared scanner/camera - it was amazing. There are some examples on his web site below. We saw a discolored place on the roof decking from the attic - the scanner revealed that it was an active leak. Heat loss is visible at walls, for example it is possible to "see" where insulation is missing! This could also be a non-invasive way to begin to evaluate stucco homes, especially at time of listing. The buyer walked across the room and we could see where his foot "prints" were because of the heat transfer from his feet - very CSI~! The first time home buyers were impressed and reassured and were so happy that I had insisted they be present at the inspection (to write the check - haha!). Chris said he could come to a sales meeting to demonstrate if you are interested.

I appreciate your thorough report. It is very informative and comforting.
I will be following up on all points and correct/investigate any of your findings needing correction. I think it would be easier to get someone from Jefferson to check for water leaks. Your check for Saturdays inspection is in the mail as of today.
"Good Morning Chris and my apologies for the delay in getting back to you.
At any rate each time I have referred you or even used you on my personal home purchase it has been more than a pleasure. Your professionalism, prompt follow up and thourough reports are bar none! I will be using you personally and referring you to my clients forever!!!!
Keep it up...
By the way I'll be calling you again in about a week or so...just wrote another contract and will need you"
