“This is a must for anyone thinking to purchase a home… Tim’s services go behind the facade and ferrets out all the pluses and minuses for the structure. Even if you don’t use his inspection report to negotiate with, it gives you a realistic, honest and thorough picture of what you are buying and what additional projects you’ll be looking at in the future–whether it’s a dripping faucet, faulty wiring or carpenter ants. Thanks to his thoroughness, I didn’t make a huge mistake. Use Tim to look behind those few coats of new paint. We WILL be using him again in the near future.”
(Todd & Susan Ekstrom)

“This is to thank you for the incredibly thorough and detailed inspection you made of the home we are purchasing on Orcas. We have bought and sold a number of properties over the years but we have never encountered a home inspector who was as careful and conscientious as you are. We were amazed you would sit with us after the inspection and go through every photo you took and explain what you had found and what it meant. That you would also patiently answer every question we had was also greatly appreciated. The strong sense we have of your integrity and care in conducting our home inspection gave us great confidence in proceeding to buy our Orcas home. We look forward to seeing you on island in the future.”
(Arthur & Judy Winer)

“Thank you again for your home inspection of our second property, which you did in our absence. We hired you on a tip from our real estate agent. We were extremely satisfied with your performance. You told us on the phone that the inspection would take 2 to 3 hours. We have parted from the house some 6 hours later at no extra charge. You patiently explained and answered every question we had. You crawled to all out of sight places, walked on steep roof, removed furniture and stored items of renters to see it all. You took dozens of close up photos. Your amazingly thorough report was over 30 pages long. Unfortunately seller, days before closing escrow, decided to be foreclosed on. We had to hire you again, in our absence, for our second choice of vacation home on Orcas Island. You performed that inspection on your own, just with keys borrowed from listing agent. We now have both the electronic and hard copy!

“Let us tell you, you have not cut any corners. This second inspection of our property is as thorough as the first one, so many pages and photos. You have saved us a lots of money by uncovering quite a few defects seller is obliged to fix before closing of escrow. Our situation of having you inspect for us 2 properties in one month is unique. Your both reports were timely delivered and very professional. We would always hire you and will recommend you in the future to our friends wanting to buy a house on beautiful Orcas Island. Thank you so much.”
(Josef & Bonnie Sedivec, San Diego, CA)

“Tim’s report was extremely thorough & comprehensive. His findings were presented in an organized, easy to understand manner, with clearly defined recommendations. Most importantly, Tim’s availability to answer our questions was invaluable in our decision to proceed with this purchase. We would highly recommend Tim and will certainly use him again in the future.”

“Tim carried out a thorough, professional inspection and provided a superb written report with photos of all points that needed repairs or improvements. A careful walk-through gave us a solid understanding of how the house functions. And his help didn’t stop there; shortly after the second-day walk-through and review he sent us information on how to make several improvements to the property.”
(Joe & Meg Massey)

“Tim, we simply cannot express how pleased we are with your home inspection. We have never experienced such thorough and complete service before. The personal time you spent explaining each detail of the report was very reassuring. We move into our new home with an in depth understanding of its idiosyncrasies and inner workings. More importantly, we have a sense of safety that we cannot place a value on. Thank you!”
(Evan & Valerie Buxbaum, Orcas Island, WA)

“Tim, thank you so much for the great job on our home inspection. You are the perfect person to be a Home Inspector, because you have personally done contracting not just overseeing but actually doing the remodeling yourself. You know what to look for, what is important and what is not. We have never had a home inspection that comes close to the service you offered us. The report was very well organized, extremely thorough, and you never tired of my endless questions. You offer a terrific service, if we ever purchase a home again in the area, you will be our inspector.”
(Jo Ann & John Scoggin, Alta, WY)

“Tim Hance was very professional and thorough with his inspection. The report was precise, well written, and easy to understand with lots of photos. His service was also fast and reasonably priced for all he did. If I ever need a home inspection again I will use All Island Home Inspections. Thank you for a great service!”
(Shelly Kalal, Andover, KS)



“I have found Tim Hance to be efficient, reliable, and responsive. His inspection reports are both detailed and comprehensive, yet presented in a clear and concise fashion. A true professional, we in the San Juan Islands are fortunate to have Tim Hance!”
(Kathryn Farron, Windermere Real Estate, San Juan Island)

“I have been involved with real estate on Orcas Island for 21 years. I am delighted to find that your work ethics and thoroughness exceeds past experiences with inspectors, as well as surpassing my expectations. I have had both personal and professional experience with your work and have never had to think about how my clients will be treated, or have to second guess the report that you deliver on schedule. I also know you will give recommendations that will save the owner/client money in the long run. I do not hesitate to recommend your services.”
(Teri Williams, T. Williams Realty)

“I have been in real estate for 36 years and believe Tim to be by far the best home inspector I have ever used. In addition, in these trying times I have found that having a home inspection done when you first take the listing is very advantageous because buyers are sometimes looking for ways to get out of a deal or substantially penalize sellers for relatively trivial issues. I highly recommend using Tim Hance’s services for both buyers and sellers.”
(Wally Gudgell, Associate Broker, Windermere Orcas Island)

“As a real estate professional for 25 years, it is refreshing to have a thoroughly professional home inspection company respond to the difficult demands of today’s real estate market. Tim Hance has done an exceptional job in his inspection and reporting. Thanks,Tim, and I will recommend your company to my clients.”
(Ken Speck, Associate Broker, Cherie Lindholm Real Estate)

“Tim of All Islands Home Inspections is a pleasure to work with. He is prompt, courteous and service oriented, a true professional. I will continue to place Tim’s service at the top of my list.”
(Jaylin Peacock, Windermere Real Estate)

“Besides being a thorough inspector, Tim is very professional and responsive to my clients whether it be regarding scheduling, reports, or follow up questions. He is knowledgeable and personable leaving all my clients feeling comfortable and educated about the facts and condition of the property they are considering. His speedy, graphic, online reports are great, concise and easy to read – and make it easy for me to consult with my clients whether we are in the same room or miles apart! I know my clients are in good hands with Tim!”
(Sybil Mager, Associate Broker, Island Group- Sotheby’s International Realty)

“Each time my clients choose Tim Hance of All Islands Home Inspections I have confidence knowing they are getting the most comprehensive, detailed inspection available. Tim brings many skills to the table; one that stands out for me is his ability to communicate respectfully and professionally with both buyers and sellers. He is timely and produces a detailed report that is exceptional. I recommend Tim to my buyers; I also refer him to sellers for a pre-listing inspection/report.”
(Gwyneth Burrill, Windermere Real Estate)

“I have used Tim Hance at All Islands Home Inspections on two real estate transactions in the past year and found his inspections to be thorough and well documented. He responded quickly to all phone calls and completed the inspections in a timely manner, even on property on a non-ferry served island. I found him energetic, competent and the buyers were impressed with his presentation. I would not hesitate to recommend All Islands Home Inspections in the future.”
(Jane Sawyer, Coldwell Banker San Juan Islands Inc.)
