Geoff was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He did everything he said he was going to do exactly when he said he would. He communicated with me every step of the way and was friendly, polite and provided a very detailed report that he helped me understand. Couldn't recommend him more, thank you so much!

Purchased our first property a few weeks back and had Geoff do the building and pest inspection. He was excellent from day 1, very polite and prompt and accommodated us in a short time frame. Not only he provided us with a detailed B&P report but was also available for a chat about the report and explaining things which I didn’t understand. Geoff is hands down the best guy you can get for doing your B&P report, will recommend him to everyone 😊

First of all, I'm sincerely thankful to Geoff for accommodating my request in such short notice. He was quick to get back to me with a formal quote and took the sincere effort to shuffle things around and make himself available (less than 18 hours from the time when I reached Geoff over the phone and the actual property inspection. Unbelievable!!!). And the way Geoff inspected the whole property in detail with an elaborated follow up report was highly commendable. Australian Building Inspections are certainly the best in business from my perspective and I'll never shy away from referring them to my friends and family. Exceptional service indeed!!! Thanks heaps.

I approached Geoff for my building inspection after reading reviews about his thoroughness and he didn’t disappoint. He quickly responded to my initial query and had completed a building report within a couple of days. Not only was the report exceptionally detailed but Geoff made himself available for follow-up phones calls to discuss any immediate and ongoing maintenance issues.

Very happy customer here!

Geoff was extremely helpful throughout the whole handover process and goes above and beyond to help homebuyers.

I would recommend him to anyone around me that is looking to purchase a new or old home!
05:10 31 Mar 22
As a first home buyer who know little to nothing about house, Geoff has helped me a lot. He is a very detailed person, the report clearly shows all faults plus the evidences.

We will definitely be using his services again soon!

21:37 15 Feb 22
We highly recommend House Inspections Melbourne and Geoff Sharp. We are second home buyers, looking for the right forever home. We're looking at established homes that are likely to need some kind of work so its important we get good advice early on. Geoff has been really responsive, pro-active, and delivered a thorough and easy to understand report - but the best part is he is incredibly helpful in post inspection conversation about options - everyone's situation is different and he genuinely wants you to buy the right house for you, and his advice will help you make those decisions. I will be using Geoff's service again and would recommend this business to anyone.
22:55 12 Feb 22
Geoff did a thorough inspection of a property I was looking at and his written report was comprehensive. He was also very helpful in explaining everything, answering all my questions, and talking through what would be need to be done if I did buy the property. While the news about this property wasn't good, it was what I needed to know so that I could make an informed decision.

Geoff provided an inspection for the handover of our new build a few years ago. He was very thorough, knowledgable, genuine and friendly. Geoff operates with high integrity. We have since contacted him to be involved in the inspection of our current new build as we trust and respect his experience. Geoff is always so willing to help. Would highly recommend.
08:29 14 Jan 22
I called Geoff at 8PM on a weekday, just before Christmas, to arrange an urgent building inspection on a new property. Geoff answered all of my questions patiently, and gave extremely valuable advice, taking my circumstances into consideration.On the day of the inspection, Geoff was very professional and informative. The report was also rather detailed, outlining all the items to be addressed.Geoff even had great advice for upgrades, that would enhance the property.I will be contacting Geoff in the future and highly recommend his services. It is rare to receive such good quality, professional service!Regards, Tim.

I can not fault the help, professionalism, knowledge and service providedOutstanding
01:06 20 Dec 21
Being a first home buyer, i was nervous about possible areas of concern when purchasing the property. Having a building and pest inspection was a must. Searching for a good building inspector online led me to Geoff at Australian building inspections.Geoff was approachable, quick to respond, and explained the process before the actual inspection. Geoff was able to do the inspection within a day or 2 and provided a comprehensive report with lots of photos for evidence and my own reference.Geoff made himself available after sending the inspection report to discuss and make me better understand, in layman terms, the areas i needed to focus on. Geoff offered to make himself available if i needed for him to speak directly to a tradie afterwards to fix a couple of areas i needed to fix within the next 6 months.I would definitely leverage Geoff's services again in the future and recommend him to others.
22:29 19 Dec 21
Geoff did a building and pest inspection for us recently and couldn't have been better. He was really accommodating when we needed it completed at short notice, and had a very thorough report to us by lunchtime after a morning inspection. Geoff made time to take us through it by phone and gave us some really great advice.He gives honest and thorough advice, and the peace of mind that we know what we're buying and which jobs need prioritising and monitoring once we've moved in.
01:05 13 Dec 21
Geoff was, professional, friendly, efficient and always ready with help and advice. An absolute pleasure to deal with, Highly recommended.
02:02 27 Nov 21
Through engaging Geoff as a property inspector, I’ve found him to be fantastic at his job. I highly recommend him, 5+ Starts!! Geoff is professional, responsive, thorough, sincere and flexible. I met Geoff almost 10 years ago when he provided us with the property inspection that led to us purchasing the house we currently live in, which we are very happy with. There wasn’t too much wrong with it yet the faults that were there, Geoff found and communicated to us, so we walked into the auction aware of exactly what we were buying. Since then, Geoff has always been generous with his time. There have been several occasions I’ve called him about properties we were looking at. He’s generously shared his knowledge with me when I’ve reached out about these properties, even though unfortunately they didn’t proceed to the point of needing inspections (other buyers getting in before auction!). Yesterday, Geoff performed another property inspection for us. He found more faults with this property than the last one (which we bought and were happy with). The reassuring thing is that if there is a fault to be found, Geoff finds it. Also, he is excellent at communicating in a way that is understandable even for me, who knows very little about building and construction. I highly recommend him, 5+ Starts!!
03:15 26 Nov 21
Geoff was great to deal with, gave us honest advice and feedback and was very flexible when conducting our pre-purchase inspection. The report was very thorough and was received within a few hours of the inspection. Geoff was also really happy to discuss any concerns we had. I wouldn't hesitate to refer him to anybody looking to buy a property.
21:28 15 Nov 21
Geoff was able to complete the inspection two days earlier than I had requested - he was very prompt and we received the report within the same day.
00:51 15 Nov 21
Joe did told me details about problems in the house and how I can get them rectify. Highly recommended
06:25 04 Nov 21

06:19 31 Oct 21
Geoff made the house inspection process easy as he organised the time and date with our agent - nothing more for us to add to our list.

Thank you
00:35 27 Oct 21

I had to do urgent inspection and Geoff was able to move his schedule and make this happen in 48 hours. Also his inspection was very high standard and very detailed. I would recommend Geoff’s services for anyone.Michael
08:52 22 Oct 21
Geoff was super helpful and readily available to answer all my questions, of which there were many! I'm a first home buyer and had some concerns about a new build I was looking at, and Geoff was able to assess it same day and provide a verbal report directly afterward to alleviate my concerns. The paper report was quick to follow, and he had so much knowledge and advice on how I could best remedy any minor issues, even when they weren't related to the quality of the work (such as notes on drainage, concreting etc). I can't recommend Geoff enough as a patient and caring inspector who goes out of his way to help. And yes, I bought the house. Thankyou Geoff! 😊

After having Geoff inspect our first home with a very detailed report, there was no question who I would get to inspect our new family home.Nothing but the best customer support especially over a very busy Christmas period on short notice.Simply the best service we could have asked for.
09:14 07 Oct 21
We had our house checked over by Australian Building Inspections 4 years ago before purchasing our first house. Geoff was very knowledgeable, professional and offered a great post inspection service.

Very happy customers - Steve & Monika.
11:06 04 Oct 21

Money well spent.

So, I hired Geoff to get a building inspection.Geoff thoroughly inspected the building a wrote a report which made the builder fix the issues.I thank Geoff for his integrity of writing the report against a volume builder knowing who the builder was and helping me getting the issues fixed.
22:35 24 Jun 21

I engaged Geoff for a pest and building inspection on a property that was subject to these items. Geoff was responsive in arranging an appointment.

I certainly recommend Geoff and will use him again should I purchase another house.
10:38 22 Jun 21
I had a complex insurance dispute after a tree fell on our house causing extensive damage. We called Geoff to assess the damage and write a report. His superbly professional report won the case with the Ombudsman. We received nearly triple the original insurance offer due to Geoff's expertise, courage and honesty.
12:37 21 Jun 21
I have no hesitation in recommending Geoff to carry out a building and pest inspection report. He is reliable and extremely thorough in his investigative work, and his report is comprehensive. Geoff is very willing to clarify or discuss any aspect of his report if necessary.

05:41 08 Jun 21
We got a few houses inspected before we eventually bought our home at a last min auction WITHOUT an inspection! We liked Geoff's work so much that we got him in to give us a report on the place we had just bought even though it was too late to back out. It was great to have a trusted expert run his eye over the place and help us identify anything we might need to look into sooner rather than later. Geoff is professional and easy to work with and I still have the detailed report 5 years later as a reference. I am happy to recommend Geoff to any of my friends who are in the market.
04:54 08 Jun 21
We contracted Geoff to do both building inspection and pest inspection prior to buying our property in Ventnor, Phillip Island. He’s very professional and did a very good job. I would highly recommend him.
03:17 08 Jun 21
I used Geoff to carry out both a building and pest inspection when I purchased a house. His work was terrific and in fact lead to the vendor having to complete some significant works as he was not aware of the potential problems. Glad Geoff was our professional for this.
00:44 08 Jun 21
Great service and advice provided really helped with our decisions on buying a house. Geoff was more than happy to discuss findings over the phone and explain what it all meant.
00:42 08 Jun 21
Having used the services provided by Geoff Sharp on two house purchases I have been assured of a responsive and very professional service on both occasions with invaluable reports of high quality and good value for my cost.
00:41 08 Jun 21
We had the pleasure of Geoff's expert service on 2 occasions. In both, we were very happy and satisfied with his professionalism, timely service and ease in all transactions - from inspection of properties to final reports. His knowledge and advice were appreciated and acted upon forthwith. We wouldn't hesitate to have Geoff inspect any future properties, if opportunities presented themselves. If you are looking for someone who is professional, with integrity and communicates well, look no further than Geoff Sharp from Australian Building Inspections Pty Ltd.
23:03 07 Jun 21
We had Geoff Sharp inspect two prospective properties we were interested in purchasing back in 2018. On both occasions, Geoff was professional and prompt in his undertakings for us. Geoff demonstrated a clear understanding of what needed to be done and we were very happy and satisfied with his quality of work for us. From inspection of the properties to providing the reports. If you are looking for a building inspector who is professional, timely and easy to communicate with, look no further than Geoff Sharp. Highly recommended.
22:55 07 Jun 21
Geoff’s company has provided excellent practical advice at very reasonable cost. I’ve used his company’s services many times and highly recommend his building inspection services
21:44 07 Jun 21
Geoff provided such a thorough inspection that resulted us passing the sale through due to the many issues Geoff found. We later settled on another property after Geoffs inspection proved it worth the buy. Will definitely use his services again in the future.Jackie and Darren
21:37 07 Jun 21
21:25 07 Jun 21
Geoff was very thorough in his report. Our builder managed to fix the issues he stated on the report. He was very helpful when I had questions to ask and easy to deal with. Would highly recommend him.

Geoff came out quickly and gave us a true picture of what was going to be needed in the house we were going to buy! Report was really detailed and had recommendations of what issues to address. He has a wealth of knowledge!I would never again buy a house without an inspection and will definitely be calling on Geoff when the time comes around again.

13:53 07 Jun 21
13:10 07 Jun 21
When we purchased our property we had never bought somewhere before and didn’t really know what we were looking for. Geoff was very professional, helpful and thorough. He gave us a very comprehensive report including photos which indicated all the actual and likely problem areas. This was enormously helpful in assisting us to negotiate the purchase price down as we had solid information to inform us about what needed to be done. All areas he identified as problem areas have turned out to need work but the main thing was we went in with our eyes open and knew what needing to be addressed. I can’t thank Geoff enough for all his advice and support. He made a very stressful process much easier for us. Thanks Geoff!
12:50 07 Jun 21
We used Geoff to do a townhouse inspection in Brunswick, Melbourne. We had used someone different for another house and weren’t that happy with them. Geoff in contrast was efficient, knowledgeable and professional, very thorough and gave us really sound advice.Some of the things he mentioned were absolutely spot on - eg we didn’t have a balcony but he noticed neighbours did and mentioned they might have leaking issues due to a change in regulations since the building went up. He was right!! We did buy the property and we were happy with Geoff - I highly recommend his services.
12:47 07 Jun 21
We found Geoff from House Inspections Melbourne to be throughly professional and knowledgeable when my husband and I hired Geoff to do the inspection for our property. So much so, that we recommended him to our son when he purchased his property. His reports were detailed and provided information that allowed us to make informed decisions.Thanks Geoff!
12:12 07 Jun 21
I highly recommend Geoff for building inspections. He is very thorough and gave us a detailed report.
12:08 07 Jun 21
Australian building inspections were such a great help when i first bought my home in helping me fix the property and get it to great living conditions.Thanks to Geoff and the team

I used Geoff's company a few years ago to inspect a property that I didn't end up bidding for as a result of the inspection report provided by Geoff. It was a pleasure working with Geoff and the team - all communication was clear and timely, the fee was reasonable and I considered it good value for money, and the report provided was clear and concise and enabled me to make an informed decision about a property purchase. I highly recommend.

Geoff has done amazing job in completing the home inspection. He’s been very thorough and has covered off every aspect to ensure a potential purchaser has a clear understanding of any potential problems that may exist. He was most willing to discuss the report in detail to ensure the condition of the property was well understood.
02:08 28 May 21
Geoff was very helpful and knowledgeable, full of good advice and tips. I would definitely recommend him if you need a property inspection done.

Geoff was fabulous to work with. I needed a building and pest inspection to be completed for the property within 24 hours and Geoff was able to do it for me. Geoff has explained and shown all the things that I need to be aware of inside and outside the property. He also explained to me potential risks that can take place based on his thorough assessment. The written detailed report was provided to me within a few hours after inspecting the property. I'm very pleased with the service. Geoff has given me great recommendations on the next steps and noted things I need to monitor on an ongoing basis. I highly recommend Geoff if you require a building and/or pest inspection!

Working with Geoff has been a fantastic experience. I had a building and pest inspection done for a property I was purchasing. I contacted Geoff less than 24hrs from when I needed the inspection and he worked to accommodate. As a first home buyer, I’d never been through the inspection process before and was unfamiliar with the checks associated, language etc. Geoff talked me through his findings shortly after finishing the inspection. He explained everything so articulately and explained terms and building conditions I was unfamiliar with- without making me feel silly for asking. He gave me advice on how to liaise with the agent and had the report back to me in about 9 hours. The report is very detailed, very clear. Geoff has been thorough and explicit in his comments and recommendations. Such an efficient and easy process with Geoff. I’d really recommend Geoff and this service to anyone as it was a great customer experience.

We strongly recommend Geoff. He was very responsive and gave us a really detailed, but clear, report about the house we want to buy. He also took us through the key points of the report on the phone and was very patient with our layman questions. We feel a lot more confident about buying the place and what we need to do to protect and improve it.
23:04 01 Mar 21
Great quality service, efficient, friendly and professional. Even after the report has been completed, Geoff took the time to answer my questions regarding things that was on the report to help me get a better understanding of the property I was purchasing.
08:14 28 Feb 21
Geoff was fantastic to deal with and very thorough with his inspection of a pre-purchase house inspection. As soon as he was done with his inspection he called me and spent the time to talk me through each of the different items he saw as being relevant and was incredibly helpful at helping me to understand the level of risk and potential financial pitfall that might exist with each. His effort and time was very much appreciated and I would be more than happy to recommend him to anyone looking for a pre-purchase bulding inspection.

Excellent service from Geoff here. From the initial call, to the updates and then to the actual day of the inspection, the report and the conversation afterwards - everything was great. Using them for my property inspection has literally saved me lots of heartache and worry. I highly recommend Geoff and the team at houseinspectionsmelbourne.
00:45 08 Feb 21
High quality inspection report and excellent service.Geoff did a fantastic job and was very easy to deal with. He was able to turn around the report really quickly and professionally.Money well spent.
10:57 06 Feb 21
Geoff is fantastic , we got him to do a inspection on our new house and he was very professional and thorough and a pleasure to deal with. It was the best decision we have made getting Geoff to go over our home before handover he was extremely thorough and found a couple of things we would of never even thought to check , would highly recommend to anyone
07:07 05 Feb 21
I am the first home buyer thus, I had zero knowledge how I should organize a pre-purchase property inspection but Geoff was so helpful and he made that inspection damn so easy.Once you enter your details and what service you would like to receive from him, you do not need to do anything but Geoff or his team does everything for you. When an inspection is completed you get a call from Geoff and he goes through the report with you and highlights what you need to be aware with the property.To sum up, as other reviews indicate, I highly recommend to get contact Geoff and organize the inspection and you have no regret.

Geoff did a great job turning around an urgent inspection for me. The level of information and advice was very helpful. Would heavily recommend.
00:59 05 Jan 21
Geoff took over when we were very dissatisfied with another report we had paid for did not even report on issues we had seen ourselves. Geoff’s report was very informative. He found and reported on things that we didn’t even think about. Geoff was very helpful and followed up after sending the report through to offer any clarification we might require. I feel confident now that we have the correct information to move forward and purchase our home. Thanks Geoff.
08:15 04 Jan 21
Geoff was extremely helpful coming out on the 2nd jan during the busy season. We met him on site at the end and he gave us his professional opinion. It was really helpful to have this as we were negotiating a private sale.Geoff works for his client (us) and gave us his unbiased professional opinion. It was well worth the price given the inspection informed us the house had major structural damage and would need immediate repair before tenanting or living in. Thankyou.
22:46 22 Dec 20
Geoff is thorough in his inspection and was very responsive. He took the time to elaborate on his findings and provided his recommendations on actions required before finalising the property purchase and after. Great person to deal with.
23:03 17 Dec 20
05:02 15 Dec 20
Geoff was great he came out to inspect our new build with only a couple of weeks notice just before Christmas ( we actually didn’t think we would get anyone at that time of year ) and we were very happy he could do it. He did a great job and would highly recommend him.
00:26 01 Dec 20
Geoff and his team were really dedicated and helpful to us. The service was conducted very quickly and efficiently. After providing the report, Geoff even offered to gave us more explanation on his detailed findings & very patient with a lots of questions from us 🙂 . Can't recommend him enough !!! Geoff is really the knowledgeable & passionate professional, who you can trust with his expertise and local knowledge.

01:30 29 Sep 20
Exceptional service, highly recommend Geoff Sharp for repurchase house inspection. Prompt, professional and very generous with his time. I am a first home buyer and to have the advice and support of someone so thorough and knowledgeable provided me with much needed confidence and security. Geoff provided an extensive report with detailed information, including photos. Geoff followed up with a phone call to talk through the report and any questions or concerns that I might have had. I received advice on the current condition of the house and on priority items requiring attention should the purchase proceed. I completely trusted Geoff’s advice. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

00:13 24 Jul 20
Geoff went over and above. I couldn’t be happier. We were in an absolute rush (48 hours) and Geoff was incredibly helpful. Every question we had he happily answered. He was quick to communicate and reply and gave us frank and honest advice. This was the first time dealing with this process and we are enormously grateful for the work Geoff provided. He stepped us through things and gave us sound peace of mind. Thanks Geoff, we are grateful.

We were very impressed with Geoff's promptness and professionalism. The inspection was very thorough and the report we received the same day was extremely detailed. We felt reassured and supported in our decision making. We would definitely recommend his services.
01:41 19 May 17
We received a fast, prompt professional service. We had a very small window to meet a deadline & House Inspections Melbourne were very helpful fitting our inspection in at the last minute. Their report was very thorough. We highly recommend them & will be using them again in future.
19:41 15 Mar 17
We approached House Inspections Melbourne with a complex case of major tree damage to our house requiring a report. Geoff came to the house promptly, took much time to explain the damage and assess it and then wrote a very comprehensive report in a very short time frame. Couldn't be more satisfied.
05:38 21 Jul 16
We had Geoff come out and do an inspection on a property me and my partner were ready to buy and we are so glad we did. It failed the inspection quite badly and so it was the best money we ever spent. Geoff was very professional and we received the report the same day that he inspected the house
05:42 26 May 16
I couldn't have been more impressed by the service that House Inspections Melbourne provided. If you're thinking of buying a property, don't hesitate to call Geoff and his team.
03:42 20 May 16
We have recently had 2 inspections done by Geoff.Each report was extremely thorough and detailed. The reports enabled us to have full knowledge of all issues with the properties.The first property had a host of underlying problems that only someone with Geoff's experience and expertise could have alerted us to.We did not go with that property thanks to Geoff's report.The second property that Geoff investigated for us had some issues, but the information enabled us to decide that we would still bid on it. Also giving us the knowledge of which issues needed to be fixed ASAP.I would highly recommend anyone contemplating purchasing property to get a report done by House Inspections Melbourne before you make any decisions. We have learned a valuable lesson about what might look great on the surface can have major and costly issues below the surface.Tony
21:05 16 May 16
We had House Inspections Melbourne assess a property and provide a written report. Geoff was fantastic, providing invaluable and timely advice. I would highly recommend Geoff and we would definitely use his services again.

Excellent service from Geoff. Very detailed report and all within same day. While doing the inspection on site, he provided pros and cons of having various features in the house and also gave me changes I should do right after moving to our new home based on urgency.I will definitely recommend his services.
04:10 17 Mar 16
Geoff has undertaken two building and pest inspections for me, and both times the report has been comprehensive, and explained with a follow up phone call. He has also answered additional questions for me post-inspection, which I've found extremely helpful. I'd definitely recommend!
03:43 11 Mar 16
Thorough report, and excellent customer service.
23:48 10 Mar 16
It was just great to get House Inspections Melbourne to have done this very crucial inspection. It was one of the next best thing we have ever done after purchasing a house. Geoff Sharp has been very encouraging and supportive to a first time home buyers like us. He showed up on time, neat and courteous. He knew so well his job and had even been kind enough to explain things without losing focus on what he was doing. He had covered everything and there were a lot of issues found beyond what our naked eyes can see. After he left, he even assured us via text message that he will be just a phone call away if there will be any thing he can be of help. The report we received later that day was very comprehensive and objective. Thank you so much Geoff.
12:34 12 Feb 16
Superb services. Geoff was very helpful & informative, and both the inspection & the report were done in a most timely manner. It was an absolute pleasure.
04:16 10 Feb 16

13:31 09 Feb 16
Geoff was punctual, took time to explain every issue clearly to me, and suggested what can be done and the cost. Even better, the report was sent to me on the same day, so that I could follow up with the builder immedately. Best part, he even asked me to give him a call when the builder responds. What more can I ask?! Will happily call him again should I / my friends need another inspection.
22:48 07 Feb 16
I was provided House Inspections Melbourne contact details by the agent. I made a booking through the website which was easy and then was contacted by Geoff within the hour. The building and pest inspections were arranged and performed the SAME day. To say I was impressed was an understatement! A comprehensive report was obtained the following day. By now I'm super impressed. This process of the project could not have been made easier. I have no problems recommending Geoff and House Inspections Melbourne as a 5 star service.Kind RegardsMarcus Furlong
07:21 07 Feb 16
Geoff was thorough doing our inspection, pointing out issues he found and what the process would be for a professional to fix them. Over all a positive experience with House Inspection Melbourne.
12:43 03 Feb 16
Brilliant customer service!!! Being a first home owner, Geoff did an excellent job of getting me up to speed on how we view and inspect a property. Meticulously drafted report will help both me and my builder to address all aspects of our property. A definite recommendation from me to the team at House Inspections Melbourne!!!
07:32 22 Dec 15
Geoff Sharp is a professional building inspector and takes good care of his clients. The inspection report he produces is very detailed with relevant screenshots for clear understanding. Highly recommended!

Have had two inspections done (so far) by House Inspections Melbourne. Both times the inspections were arranged within 24 hours and I received the inspection reports on the same day the inspection was done.The reports are extensive and easy to understand.Geoff was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He pointed out obvious and non-obvious faults in the properties.Highly recommended.
06:35 10 Dec 15
We engaged this company and Geoff Sharp to inspect a house we were thinking of buying on Phillip Island. A detailed and comprehensive assessment was carried out and was followed up by both a written and verbal report. This allowed us to become aware of some significant issues that while not imminently serious if they were not attended to could become so down the track. We were able to use this report to help in our negotiations and win a significant discount in the purchase price from the vendors. It is clear this could not have happened without the strength of the house inspection report and so we are very grateful and decided to purchase this home.
01:31 05 Dec 15
Very thorough, would highly recommend!
23:25 02 Dec 15
I recently purchased a property in Surf Beach, Philip Island and Geoff from Melbourne House Inspections service was outstanding. The house we bought had a few issues and thanks to the recommendations made by Geoff we were able to make an informed decision on how to proceed with the purchase and costs involved. We booked the inspection only the day before and had the report via email the same day as the inspection. I would highly recommend House Inspections Melbourne to anyone wanting a pre purchase property inspection.
03:59 12 Oct 15
considerate, friendly, professional service which exceeded expectations. Pleased with the detailed same-day report.
23:45 27 Sep 15
Geoff was warm, approachable, knowledgeable and incredibly willing to help.Highly highly recommended.
04:06 13 Sep 15
Geoff was quick to respond, polite and thorough. We received a written report with photos soon after the building and pest inspection. Very happy with his work. The house we had inspected went to auction and we were not the successful bidders, but we are happily using Geoff's services once again on another property. Recommended.
03:30 11 Sep 15
Definitely got the experience and knowledge on the particular subject. Provided all recommendations and improvement on findings and best solutions to rectify the building and pest problems. Went through all details and hard to reach areas to provide customer a detailed report. Highly recommended!!!!
01:26 19 Aug 15
We found Geoff to be very professional in his approach to inspecting a property on our behalf, his report was very detailed and very helpful in going through and explain the report which was very understandable to read and we received the information the same day. A five out of five.
13:57 10 Aug 15
We engaged Geoff to inspect a property in the Eastern Suburbs. We were pressed for time and needed an inspection in the next two days and a report issued ASAP. Geoff inspected the property as promised, provided excellent verbal feedback and provided the report well ahead of the time indicated. We were able to luckily exit the contract because of key findings in the report. Really happy with the service, reliability and professionalism. Thank you.
10:34 20 Jul 15
Had my first inspection with Geoff today and he was great! He was very thorough, showed me what to look for, provided clear explanation of what was wrong and the rectification work required. I received a detailed report highlighting all the things we talked about on the same night too! we will definitely use Geoff again for future inspections.
11:10 06 Jul 15
The service from House Inspections Melbourne was excellent from start to finish. Very helpful lady on the phone to book the appointment, which was fit in the very same week, The detailed inspection report, was great! We learned a lot from it actually.This is our first home purchase so we want to be cautious and do it right. Getting this report has hugely helped us, as we liked the property a lot but had some reservations which were confirmed. The photographs and summaries in particular were very useful. Thank you.
10:17 01 Jul 15
Came with excellent recommendations and brings a lot of experience.
02:54 26 Jun 15
I have now used Geoff for inspections on 2 properties going to auction - and I would never purchase a property without one. Geoff provides invaluable information and insights, which has allowed us to make informed decisions with these properties.Geoff has also honored his promise of a 2nd inspection for half price, which is most helpful.He is so happy to discuss the report and the property with us, so we are clear on what we are in for. Would definitely recommend him to anyone! Thanks Geoff!!
10:56 23 Jun 15
Friendly, great service and detailed oral and written reports.
01:46 31 May 15
Geoff from House Inspections Melbourne has performed 2 pre-purchase inspections for me and I am very happy with the results. He is very thorough and very knowledgable, and provided some good advice for immediate repairs, and ongoing maintainance. In one instance the inspection saved me from around $15,000 worth of unseen work, i would not hesitate to recommend his services.
05:45 07 May 15
We have been looking far and wide to buy the right 'renovator's dream' for a while. We can't thank Geoff enough for his detailed inspection and willingness to follow our search around the countryside: on separate occasions he travelled significant distances to meet us in Mornington and then Mount Martha. His open conversation, frank assessment and exhaustive report allowed us to truly understand the challenges we faced. His advice was invaluable and allowed us to make an informed, confident choice. Without his open and honest feedback, our path would not have been as smooth as it was. Would we recommend House Inspections Melbourne? Absolutely.Thanks, Geoff, for the time you invested in our search - your professionalism and expertise has been appreciated.
22:59 26 Apr 15
Fantastic professional service and a very detailed and thorough Building/Pest Report. The follow up service was also brilliant. Highly recommended.
10:49 17 Jul 14
I recently hired Geoff to do an inspection on a property i have purchased. I found his service to be excellent, I was present whilst he did the inspection and he happily showed me any areas of concern and explained in detail what was required to rectify any of the trouble spots, along with a detailed report. Geoff has a genuine passion for his work and strives for customer satisfaction, I highly recommend him!
