Only One Inspector

When you hire Good Counsel Home Inspections, you don't play inspector roulette. I am the only inspector. I handle the inspection process from scheduling to inspection report and your follow up questions.

Fully Licensed and Insured

I am a fully licensed and insured home inspector in the State of New Jersey. In addition to this I am bonded though one of my professional organizations, InterNACHI. I am also a licensed pest inspector for wood destroying insects, and an NJPMA Credentialed Inspector.
