REVIEWS

Please take a look at reviews our clients have given us – organized by type of situation and client:

OUR EDUCATIONAL APPROACH:

“Our home inspection was with Morgan and we very much appreciated his attention to detail and the time he took to teach us while he inspected. There were several features of our new home we would not have otherwise understood without Morgan.  The thoroughness of the written report was also appreciated by the contractors we hired to fix some of the items – everything was laid out and it simplified their planning.  We were referred to Morgan by engineering friends of ours and now we understand why – meticulous, thorough, and entirely pleasant!”

OUR THOROUGHNESS:

“Hired MKC Associates for single family home inspection in Boston. They came recommended by friends who were very pleased with their service. MKC was prompt to respond to my questions prior to the inspection over the phone. The inspection itself was done by Jameson, who was extremely thorough! He inspected every nook and cranny of that house inside and out, very personable, explained what he was looking at and finding as he went along, and followed up with a thorough report with photos. My father is a building commissioner outside of Boston, he was present for the inspection as my trusted back up, and later commented how impressed he was with the MKC inspector.”

OUR PERSONALITY AND DEMEANOR:

“Working with Jack Mason was like getting a home inspection with the klick and klack brothers.  He’s the kind of guy you like immediately and want to know for the end of time.  Just like the car talk guys, when he tells you something is going to cost 15 grand to fix, there’s an easy laughter in the air and sense of gratitude and confidence that the problem has been correctly diagnosed.
MKC may be a bit pricey, but I have the sense now that you just do not find the attention to detail, warmth, and genuine interest in providing great explanations.
The radon tester, John, was also thoroughly awesome.  He explained the statistics and dangerous nature of excess radon, including where it comes from, but he also indulged me in explaining more about our electrical system.
With MKC you get double value, the knowledge of what is wrong with your home, but also, because they encourage you to walk with them while they inspect and are so forthcoming with what they’re seeing, I feel I took a masterclass in home maintenance and repair and now look at my home with new eyes.
Do not go anywhere else.  You have found the right people.”

OUR REPORTS:

“Our inspectors name was Jack and he was the best. Very detailed home inspection and a great guy. Can’t recommend enough, really did a great job. The report is very thorough and has pictures and descriptions of everything. This is our first home purchase and Jack took the time to explain everything and made everything clear and easy to comprehend.”

WHEN FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS WORK WITH US:

“I am a first time home buyer and like anyone else, was very nervous about the inspection. I came across this company on Yelp and did not know much other than their great reviews here. They were all right. We had Tom Berthiaume and he went above and beyond during the whole process. Not only did he point out everything to use, he did it in a manner in which we could understand, provided recommendations, and gave us a world of knowledge of things we are not familiar with.
These guys are the real deal. Tom explained his background, his licenses, and walked us through absolutely everything. We had many questions and he had answers for them all. We even went over a past inspection that was done a month prior and explained to the selling agent what they missed and what needs to be done prior to us buying. This was a nervous day for us and Tom nailed it and put us on the right position for the remaining process.”

Michael Q.

OUR SCHEDULING AND COORDINATION OF THE INSPECTION:

“I have no problem for giving MKC 5-star. They really deserve it. I think every company should be run like MKC. They shined from the beginning. First of all, customer care staff was very courteous and efficient. I did not have to wait for more than 5 seconds before a person picked up the call and when I had to keep changing appoint time and day while back and forth between my agent and seller’s agent, they were happy to keep revising it without any hesitation. The inspector showed up on time. But the seller’s agent was late. But the inspector was very understanding and we checked from outside. He was very methodical and paid attention to minor details with explanations to me. He was happy to answer all my questions. In that way he was a great teacher as well. I learned so much from him. Then, the report came to me in a few days. His report covered all the point big or small without missing anything, yet concisely written with nice photos. There are 2 versions. Full and summary. They can be converted into PDF easily. I think every penny was worthwhile spending at MKC. I highly recommend them to anyone.”

OUR AVAILABILITY ON SHORT NOTICE:

“First off– I called on short notice and was able to get someone in within days to do an inspection on my condo, so I was impressed off the bat! Tom did my home inspection this past Friday and he was great.  He was very detailed focus and friendly — explained everything to me and made me feel very reassured in my first home buying process.  My realtor said he was great and even took his card to pass on to other clients.  I would recommend MKC to anyone buying a home!”

Melissa S.

OUR CONCERN WITH THE SAFETY OF OUR CLIENTS:

“Wonderful job. Professional, thorough and overall excellent! Went through everything carefully and explained it all so well. Highly recommend. Best home inspectors out there – even saved my life when I went to touch the electrical wiring!!”

Carla S.

OUR CLEAR COMMUNICATION:

“This was my first experience buying a place on my own and Morgan immediately gained my trust. Though I only contacted him around 6pm, due to a cancellation he was able to offer me an appointment for the very next day. During the inspection, Morgan was extremely thorough and spent a lot of time explaining to me the significance of his findings regarding all of the systems and any necessary corrections or repairs, as well as educating me on how to maintain the different systems to prevent problems and keep the condo in good working order. The report arrived the following day via email and was both detailed and clear, including photos to indicate specific areas of concern. Both my agent and the sellers’ agent were really impressed with his attention to details, as well as his interpersonal skills. I would not hesitate to engage Morgan again and heartily recommend him to others.”

WHEN THE CLIENT IS NOT ABLE TO BE PRESENT AT INSPECTION:

“Rob did an amazing job on our inspection. We are working on a purchase of a 100+ year old home and I can’t imagine doing it without him. We asked a lot since we’re relocating and were unable to attend during the inspection itself, but Rob was there with our realtor, provided the report, and did a great job explaining his biggest concerns via phone. We couldn’t be happier with our inspector/this company and highly recommend.”

Joe K.

WHEN WE HAVE INSPECTED MULTIPLE PROPERTIES FOR A CLIENT:

“This was the 4th home that Rob Amaral has inspected for me and I can’t imagine using anyone else. Based on his reports, I have purchased 3 of the 4 homes he has inspected. Everything he told me about each house has held true, and allowed me to make informed decisions about renegotiating the sales price and what repairs to make after buying the house. While he may be a little more expensive than other inspectors, you are paying for his expertise, and it is worth every penny! My most recent purchase was an older multi-family home and because of all the issues he found I was able to negotiate $50,000 off of the sales price. While that is probably an extreme example, on the other 3 houses I was able to negotiate $5,000 off of another multi-family, feel confident in my purchase of a foreclosure condo, and walk away from another potential multi-family purchase that would have been a disaster. At the time of my first inspection with Rob I was a first-time home-buyer and I was so grateful to have someone looking out for my interests as the buyer. While I like my real estate agents, at the end of the day they want the sale to go through because that’s how they get paid. Rob was impartial, with no conflicts of interest, and was able to educate me on the biggest purchases I’ll probably ever make in my life. He’s one of the few tradespeople that I feel confident recommending and I give his name to everyone I know that is purchasing a house. He is knowledgeable, thorough, and gives you the history on certain housing materials and construction techniques, giving you a better understanding of the home you are purchasing. I really cannot say enough good things about him, he’s fantastic!”

Autumn W.

OUR AVAILABILITY AND PRICING:

“I had a great experience with MKC – I contacted them through Yelp and Kristen responded to my inquiry almost immediately. We spoke on the phone the next morning and she was helpful and informative, and was able to set up a home inspection for the same week at a reasonable price.
Jameson did the actual inspection and was communicative, clear, and thorough. He arrived on time, didn’t make me feel rushed, and answered all the questions I had. The report itself was very clear and comprehensive. 
I won’t hesitate to use MKC again for another home inspection!”

ON AVOIDING MONEY PIT NIGHTMARES:

“I have used Tom Berthiaume twice and have been extremely pleased.  He is the most thorough inspector I have ever used.  In one instance he was able to alert me to a problem that I had never considered.  A house had a collapsed building that looked to him like it might be in a wetland.  I made some calls and found out he was right.  That could have been a nightmare as it might have resulted in us having to clean it up without machinery.  How do you place a value on avoiding nightmares?
I have also recommended Tom to a friend who used him.  I know my friend and his wife were also quite pleased.”

Daniel C.

WHAT REAL ESTATE AGENTS HAVE TO SAY:

“I’m a real estate agent and have recommended MKC to all of my clients for their professionalism, detail-oriented reviews and knowledge. They surpass any home inspector I’ve met and would trust them with my own home. Their reports are incredibly thorough and easy to understand. While fees are higher than average, you get what you pay for. They will spend a full day at a single family (9a-3p) and several hours on a condominium. Morgan tends to get backed up so book well in advance!”

Nicole B.

OUR IMPARTIALITY:

“Excellent inspection – thorough and precise. Morgan Cohen inspected a condo for us. Our realtor was impressed with how Morgan examined the overall state of the building as well, which many inspectors give short shrift to in condo sales.  Morgan politely but firmly held his ground when a realtor suggested a particular item did not need repair, and Morgan thought that it did. (And it did!). Morgan delivered the report by email in 24 hours. It was clear and detailed. Morgan is also friendly and fun to work with.  He answers questions in  a way that non-builders can understand.  He knows his stuff.  
Around $500 for a 1400 sq ft place, that was built c. 1910. (Older properties cost a bit more for inspection). Worth every penny.”
