“Thank you, Brass Tacks, Inc and Ethan Hotchkiss for a job well done. Taking advantage of the opportunity to inspect your home along side a certified home inspector is a plus, but Ethan made the experience that much better. I have a general eye for home components, but Ethan was able to better explain thoroughly what we were looking at. His expertise was evident and I felt very comfortable asking questions and he was very willing to explain in general terms. Home inspections play such a large part in purchasing the home of your dreams or maintaining the home of your dreams. I would recommend Brass Tacks, Inc and Ethan to anyone I know, love, or acquaintances with. Thank you, again!”

“We were extremely pleased with the level of service and professionalism we received with our home inspection. Ethan encouraged us to be present at the house during the inspection so he could further explain some of his findings. He took extra time to explain the causes and solutions to some of the findings we were concerned with. I would certainly recommend using Ethan for future home inspections.”

“We have had two homes inspected by Brass Tacks Inspection Services, and we were really pleased with the service both times. Ethan was both friendly and professional, and he was happy for us to be present during the inspection so that we could see firsthand what he was seeing and ask any questions we had about the process or the home being inspected. He was thorough and unbiased, and we truly felt that we were in good hands. I would highly recommend this company.”

“We wanted to thank you for the home inspection that you performed for us. The overall process of purchasing a home is both daunting and exhausting. This is true especially when it is your first home and you have never been through the process before. We were very impressed by the thoroughness of your inspection and the time you spent going through each step. We were also impressed that you took so much of your valuable time explaining everything you were doing and the tips you gave throughout the process. We are forever grateful for your professionalism and attention to detail. We would recommend Brass Tacks Inspection Services to anyone.”

Thank you

“Ethan provided a professional and invaluable service to us in the home buying process.  His willingness to spend time with us as he assessed the home we eventually purchased helped us ask valuable questions and request important amendments to the home.  His inspection was especially helpful in the purchase of an older home, something we had no experience of previously.  Ethan raised some important issues that were then brought to bear in the purchase price of the house once the appraisal was done.   I would recommend him without reservation.”
