​​​​​​​​​I chose you based on the positive feedback posted on your website, and you lived up to the hype! You were timely, informative, flexible, personable, and incredibly thorough. We were grateful that you made sure to answer any questions we had and take the time to look (or re-look) at any aspects of the home we requested. Even my picky father-in-law had no complaints - and he loved that you got out your ladder and checked out the attic! Our real estate agent was impressed by the report you sent, and we were impressed that we received it just hours after our inspection. Because of your report, not only could we confidently ask the sellers for remedies, but we also know what we will need to address ourselves as time goes on. We would recommend you to any of our friends and family, without hesitation. Thanks again! Jennie, Westerville, OH

I feel that it is easier to make better decisions having you doing the home investigations. I can't thank you enough . Twice you saved me from getting involved in a money pit, I love your service and I would recommend the service highly to anyone who is a home owner or thinking of buying a home. It is certainly detailed and shows all things a house hunter would not think to ask about or even see when looking at a house. I felt most confident having Jim Troth in charge and him knowing what to look for. I love Habitation Investigation. Thanks Jim 
From Evelyn I was in Marysville. I live in Germantown

I was extremely impressed with the level of service from Jim! He has been nothing but honest, upfront and professional.

Jim, thanks so much.
This report is really great - especially with the pictures. We have forwarded to our builder with the focus on the items listed as potential safety hazards those listed as water damage issues.

Thank you so much for all the information regarding the inspection. We thought the inspection was very detailed and we really appreciate that you not only listed some of the items that need attention, but that you also included information on how to handle the problem. I have already given your card to my teaching partner. She is going to be looking at houses in Powell next month. If you need a reference, Mike and I would be happy to refer you!

After working with a non-professional home inspector for 2 homes (we cancelled the contract on both) we were impressed with your assessment of our home. The inspection was well worth the money and the internet full report was very thorough. I have had compliments on it from numerous family members. Most of all, I enjoyed the pictures that came along with the report, if they were not taken we would have had a hard time figuring out what you were talking about. Everything was done in a timely matter and we felt we received an objective and thorough report.

Thank you for your work and we are glad we could give you business!

Hi Jim,
Thanks for such a thorough job! I appreciate you taking the time to answer some of my own mundane questions and probably disrupting your normal routine for going through the house. I am glad to have been there! I learned much... things that I NEED to be aware of as not just a homeowner, but as someone who will take the time to care for it the way it should be!!!
Have a great week.
Thanks again,
Christina, Marysville Ohio
