Home Buyers

We understand that buying a home may be the largest purchase that any of us make in our lifetime. We know that you are probably in love with the house, you wouldn’t have put an offer in on it and signed the contract if you didn’t. From first time buyers to seasoned professional investors – we can help!

A good understanding of the condition of the property is important in reducing the home buying stress by helping you make a sound buying decision that supports your goals and desires. We are here to be like a trusted big brother going through the home starting on the roof and ending at the foundation with stops at every system in between. We can help!

We can help by providing a through, unbiased and unemotional inspection of your property. You may have fallen in love with the granite counter tops or the over-sized marble floor tile laid on the diagonal with no grout lines. But what did you think about the type of attic construction? What about those missing tiles or shingles that you can’t see from the ground? We take a much deeper and more detailed look. You’ll know a lot more about the house after our inspection than you do now!

Our inspection and report is similar to an EKG you receive at your family doctor’s office. Our report, as an EKG, may indicate a need for further analysis, repair or maintenance. We can put the results in perspective to help you with your buying decision.

We are here to help you through the process. We can promise you that you will not find a more thorough inspection team. Our inspectors perform the inspection with your best interests as a home owner and home buyer in mind. We will take the time to make sure you understand the condition of the home you are about to purchase. We don’t do this because we have to, we do this because we want to.

  • Darrel is knowledgeable, professional, thorough, and extremely helpful. I am just moving to Boynton Beach and have run into a lot of things I didn't know about buying a house in Florida. Darrell knew what I needed and gave a fair price. Since the inspection I've probably had a million questions about various things and Darrell has gone above and beyond to not only answer my questions but recommend people to get estimates from. He has responded to every question, most of the time immediately. I would recommend them to anyone and will use them again!

  • Darrel Abbey is by far and without a doubt the best home inspector I have ever encountered. He is extremely thorough and generally a pleasure to be around. Darrel showed up early and went above and beyond to assist me outside of the direct inspection with his local knowledge. His inspection report was detailed, easy to read, and very clearly deciphered between major and minor issues. Additionally, his equipment is top of the line, and something you won't have the benefit of with all inspectors, and still his prices are extremely competitive. I'm thrilled I was referred to him.

  • Very thorough & professional! I signed a contract for my new home purchase on 4/17 and by 4/22 Your Inspector Guy was performing the inspection. He is extremely detail oriented and didn't miss anything! Their price is comparable to what they do and worth every penny!

  • Most people in the technical service industry really has a difficult time in explaining or translating what they are doing to individual(s) who don’t work or have an understanding of the same. However, what I respect and appreciate about Jennifer (not to single her out but she was the one conducting the process) was that she take the time in using simple analogies that makes very easy to follow and understood the nature of the work being completed by her. Hence, I am recommending anyone who maybe considering on using this company for any of the many service(s) they provide to right ahead and use them. Thank you.
    -Javaune Daley
  • These company saved me from buying a home that would've been a nightmare. They found what most inspectors wouldn't. I'm really grateful.
    - Daniel Morales
  • Your Inspector Guy has recently completed three separate inspections on our properties and each one was first class. Jennifer has amazing knowledge, experience and a tenacious desire to cover every square inch that must be inspected and evaluated. Jennifer located important flaws and issues in the properties in places that other inspectors missed completely. And the reports that we receive from the company are amazingly complete with numerous photos of problem areas and in-depth conversations on what should be done to correct the problems. Those reports are generated by the end of the day of the actual inspection, so we don't have to wait around for any reason. As owners of multiple properties we rely on Your Inspector Guy and their determination to leave no stone unturned to provide us with 100% of the information we need for buying and maintaining a property. As an extra plus, their pricing is reasonable, and the entire process is agreeable and satisfying. We highly recommend Your Inspector Guy.

  • Guy has done inspections for several of my clients and they were ALL extremely pleased with his thoroughness attention to detail.
    -Thom Montrois, RE/MAX Properties
  • I wish I could choose more than 3 best attributes to describe Guy's work. In addition to being reliable, punctual, and extremely personable, his work is impeccable. He is extremely thorough in his home inspections, taking photographs and detailed notes for the client's reference. He is also available for follow-up questions. I feel confident hiring Guy to do my home inspections, knowing that my clients will know exactly what they're buying. And, for my own reference, he is more than happy to explain to me any issues he finds during an inspection, so that I can review the results in detail with my clients.

    I fully recommend Guy Hartman and Your Inspector Guy for your home inspection needs, whether you are a homebuyer, seller, or a real estate professional.

    -Kristen Danzig, Realtor Jupiter & Juno Beach
  • Simply, Guy is a thorough and knowledgeable home inspector. But what continually impresses me is Guy's ability to convey his findings in layman's terms, which not only educates clients and agents, but more importantly, calms the often anxious homebuyer. He is prompt, polite and a joy to work with. I use Guy on my personal purchases and always recommend him to my real estate clients.
