Mike inspected my property and was so knowledgeable and helpful! Mike went out of his way after my home was purchased to do me a solid just so I could have hot water that same day! Not only would I use this company again, I will recommend the company to future clients. Thank you Mike for making my first experience with you guys a great one!!

I was setup with a home inspector thru my realtor team and upon further review I was not thrilled to use them. I went searching thru help and good and came across Smart Choice and it was indeed a smart choice! Mike was prompt with scheduling and super friendly! Again he was super prompt in arriving and very professional yet friendly. He went they his process and got straight to work, he did a full inspection of literally anything and everything and noticed things I would have never noticed on my own. Upon completion of the inspection he walked myself and realtor thru the home to point out what he found along with recommended actions to take place. We further sat down went back thru everything and he provided me with contacts should I need them and offered to be at my disposal should I have further questions or concerns! I would recommend him to anyone. My realtor even took his information to further recommend to other clients! Definitely worth it for me!

Mike was a punctual, detailed oriented, knowledgeable, easy to talk to and very cool guy.

He showed up to house before I did and was already looking at the house! I was very impressed of how he paid attention to every detail inside my house. He was explained everything to me and when I had any questions he answered them. He emailed a detailed-attentive report that was easy to understand. Thank you Mike and I hope to do business with you again.

Mike was flexible on scheduling and made it easy to set up an appointment. He is extremely thorough and is genuinely concerned with detailing every issue with the home. We are not the most savvy people when it comes to things like construction, and Mike was happy to answer all of our questions.

He sent the resulting report in under 24 hours. The report is really cool: It's comprehensive, easy-to-read and nicely illustrated with photos.

I'm sure there are other good home inspectors but Mike is our go-to guy. 100% recommendation.

Michael H

Mike was so easy to deal with. He spent time doing an inspection of a property we are in the process of purchasing. He was sure to answer any of our questions and came up with great solutions to things we wanted to do with the house. Would recommend Mike to anyone needing a good quality home inspection and a good price.

Sarah Krohn

He was responsive, flexible with schedule and most importantly provided a home inspection that I trust will not give me surprises later. I wish I would have used this company with my first home! On top of everything, affordable price not trying to take advantage! Thanks Mike!!

Mike is always professional and very detailed with his inspections. I've used him several times for myself and have referred him to family, friends and clients. Everyone has always been extremely satisfied with his services.

Rob Chlopek

Mike was so easy to work with. We hired him for our pre drywall and completed inspections on our new construction home. Being a first time home owner I had lots of questions. He was always quick to return my phone calls and happy to take the time to help me address any concerns I had during the build. His reports were detailed and simple to read as well. Overall a very professional and patient guy. We would absolutely hire him again.

Detra Harris

Michael was beyond professional, detailed and helpful. For a new homeowner, he took his time in our home, making sure all was intact, working and in good maintenance. He showed me how to turn the water on and off in the house and how to maintain important maintenance of the house. He was kind and welcoming and I would recommend them to anyone!

Halle Melendez

Mike performed our home inspection. He was responsive, professional and thorough. His inspection report was clear and concise and we received it before 9am the morning following the inspection. He was also flexible on the timing as I had to schedule it after work. Highly recommend!

Mike was absolutely fantastic, he was very thorough during his inspection and was communicative throughout the entire process. He was able to make the appointment quickly and when I changed my mind and wanted to add the radon test another day he was able to get that done quickly as well. He also provided the reports to us the very next day. I will definitely be using Mike in the future if we are to purchase another home!

Positive: Punctuality
Our inspector was prompt. He did a great job looking over each room in detail. He did a very thorough job. Professional yet friendly. Good experience for me especially being my first time going through this.

Mike was great, walked me through everything, not only doing his job, but making sure I was understanding what I was looking at. He was detective-like in finding any areas of concern around the house and telling me how they likely happened, and in looking for things that nobody ever thinks to check. This sort of attention to detail, and understanding, can only come from years of experience. Professional, personable, thorough and efficient. I tried to find a negative to validate the pros that I shared, and do not have one to offer. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Mike was outstanding during the inspection of my new home. He took the time to look at the property in full detail finding many items that were incomplete or non-functional. Not only did he show me the issues but he also took the time to explain how items should look and function. After the seller completed all items Mike came back to the house for another inspection to ensure items were completed correctly. He saved my family thousands of dollars and a lifetime of pain. Thanks Mike

Our inspector Greg was very thorough and provided us with a lot of useful information. He thoroughly answered all of our questions and provided us with helpful insights. My wife commented that she felt more confident in his assessment than one that we had done on our own home a few years back.

Mike from Smart Choice Home Inspections came to our home and was very courteous and professional right from the start. Asking about taking his shoes off, explaining the process, verbally giving directions and then also leaving paperwork with all the directions written for reference. He was friendly towards our animals and made this experience easy and enjoyable. He also texted me letting me know he is ahead of schedule and wanted to see if it was possible if he could stop by ahead of the arranged time! I would happily recommend Smart Choice Home Inspections to anyone in the Chicagoland area that wants to have a professional assess the Radon levels in their home.

Antanas Senkevicius

My husband and I have been house shopping for a while now and when we found our dream home we wanted to make sure that this investment was for life so hiring a good home inspector was key. I couldn't believe how detailed Mike was when inspecting. He not only pointed out potential big problems but the small things too! It was wonderful to know that there weren't going to be any surprises in our future. With his thorough inspection we were even able to negotiate a cheaper price for the house!

Sandra K.

One of the best in town!!!! Even my realtor was EXTREMELY impressed with him!!! Super honest. Super personable. Understood that I was a first time homebuyer and did not mess around. I appreciate his honesty, he was there BEFORE the start time and has the WHOLE exterior inspected and ready for review. Super impressed. Would refer him to anyone in need of an inspector. Also extremely reasonable

Liv L.

Charissa S.

Mike was not only a great inspector but also an overall awesome guy. He is very kind and smart. He walked me through everything and taught me about how to use and clean things throughout the home. He really made sure that I felt confident in each area before we moved on to the next section. I definitely recommend his services for anyone buying a home, and I will be using him again in the future!

Mike's service was fantastic in all aspects. Very knowledgeable and great at relaying information about our future house. Mike also was kind enough to provide recommendations that we could use for a number of repairs our home needs shortly after closing. I would highly recommend Mike!

I have a 100 year old home, and needed a thorough home inspection prior to purchasing. Ian at Smart choice did such an amazing job on my inspection, I was able to negotiate with the seller to cover some significant costs for repairs. Thanks to Smart Choice, I saved thousands!
