The Inspector Home Inspections Print

Certified Partner since 2016


The Inspector provides comprehensive Home Inspection services in the Southeast Valley.

A professional top to bottom Home Inspection gives you the information you need to make an educated decision about one of the biggest purchases you may ever make.

I am not your average Home Inspector. You need a clear and accurate assessment of the home you are about to purchase. Unlike my competition my average Home Inspection takes 3 to 6 hours to complete. I book one inspection per day so I am not rushing to finish your inspection so I can get to my next appointment. You and your home have my full attention for as long as it takes to inspect all aspects of the house. I then take the time necessary to do a full walk through of the inside and outside of the house with you showing you what I found and pointing out important features of the home. I answer the questions you may have about this home at that time.

I then spend several more hours completing an easy to read but very detailed Home Inspection Report that explains all of my findings during the inspection. I include a summary at the beginning of the report detailing the most important issues. I also include plenty of color photos highlighting issues along with a section showing important information such as the electrical and water shutoff locations. I then email the report to you in .pdf format so you will have all of the details and information available when you need it. I inspect each home as if I were moving my own family in to it. In short I care about what I do and want you to be comfortable with your upcoming home purchase!

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you! Give me a call today at 48-039-09970 to schedule your Home Inspection or to get answers to your Home Inspection questions.

Specializing In: Single Family Homes, Town Houses, Condominiums, Luxury Homes and Patio Homes.

"I found Toby through the Rosie on the House web site "Find a Trusted Partner" and he lived up to expectation. Booking the home inspection was made easy, even though the seller had to change the first appointment, a simple phone call to Toby and we had a new inspection date arranged. The report is clear, with lots of pictures including arrows so you know exactly what he's referring to and of course he does a walk through and explains everything, even making suggestions for ongoing maintenance. Thanks Toby, and thanks Rosie on the House! Sandy K"


"We are completely delighted with the quality of home inspection that Toby did. He is incredibly thorough and very easy to work with. He presented his findings to us, the buyers, and the elderly sellers at the same time (at our request) and did it with tact and grace....not always easy to do in that circumstance. His 69 page written report was very in depth with lots of pictures and documentation, and we got it the same day as the inspection! In the inspection report Toby also provided additional information about equipment serial numbers, filters sizes, etc. that were useful to us as the future home owner. He charges more than some other inspectors, but in my opinion it was worth the extra cost. Bottom line, we feel comfortable that Toby gave us an accurate picture of the condition of the home we were planning to buy. We highly recommend Toby and would most certainly use him again.

"Tobe Karlquist, owner of The Inspector just completed a home inspection for a house I am in the process of purchasing. He was very professional and after completion took the time to explain what he found. It was great because he showed me the valves for turning water and gas on/off. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Rosie for making this device available. Judy"
