Ryan was very nice and professional and did a super thorough job of the inspection. My real estate agent and several other people in my circle commented on how detailed it was. He also talked through all of my questions (which were a lot) and offered to continue to answer questions in the future and gave me some helpful hints on what I should or should not nice to do vs must do from future vendors I might have out to the house. I also really like the format of the inspection report itself.

Ryan was able to accommodate a tight inspection contingency turnaround for us. His inspection was highly thorough and informative. The online report was very helpful and well written to show us what was a critical fix and what would be simple maintenance work. He also walked us through everything he had seen in the house before he left and took a lot of time to answer our questions. We will definitely use Chronicle Inspections for any future inspections!

Feb '18 Seattle, WA
As a contractor in the city, I am constantly reminded companies that communicate well are often times the ones providing the best products. Whether looking for a home inspector or another service it starts with good communication which drives results. Having worked with Ryan on multiple levels he consistently delivers on these qualities. Ryan is skilled and extremely knowledgable in construction from the ground up and in home renovations. These experiences clearly help him in carefully evaluating homes for his customers. I have used Ryan’s services in the past and will continue without hesitation.
