Customer Thoughts:

Jim Sofet earned the right to be my exclusive home inspector by virtue of his professionalism and reliability. Jim's encyclopedic knowledge of the housing business and applicable building code coupled with his thorough, timely and unbiased reports made him a critical part of my brokerage efforts. The risk management dynamic he added contributed, without question, to the overall success of my brokerage. Ours was a highly compatible and truly mutually beneficial association for several years prior to my retirement. As such, Jim Sofet has my very highest recommendation for a like association with your business.
