Google Reviews from Satisfied Customers

  • review rating 5  Reed was prompt---arriving early the next day after I called him. He expertly inspected our home---spending extra time on attic venting issues. His report was thorough, with numerous photos documenting various items that he found. I couldn't be more pleased with his work. He helped us prepare a plan on how to attack an attic venting situation. We certainly will refer Reed and his company to others.

  • review rating 5  Reed was professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and punctual. He worked hard to turn around our inspection quickly and on short notice which gave us peace of mind that we could lock our purchase agreement in quickly. I would recommend Reed to anyone and will definitely use his services again should I find myself needing a home inspection again. Truly a phone number not to lose.

  • review rating 5  Reed was great to work with! He was extremely quick to reach out to us, and fit us into his schedule (our offer was accepted, and he was able to do the inspection the next morning!). He did a very thorough job, and was very helpful and complete in his explanation and walk through when my husband and I arrived at the home. He was professional and honest, we would recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspection. We look forward to working with him again in the future.

Home Detective MN Home Inspection Reviews


Wonderful. Exceeded expectations. Very detail focused work, he is very responsive to follow up questions we had, provided a great write up at the end of the inspection. Would highly recommend and would definitely use again. Very personable.

Purchasing a home can be very stressful for first timer’s like my wife and me. Reed walked through the entire house after his inspection with us and really showed and explained a lot that we will find very helpful for years to come. He was very prompt and easy to work with and took all of the stress completely out of this part of the process. From all of us involved, THANK YOU Reed and your business for being there for us!

Ryan N.

Everything went very well. Reed was extremely professional. He was very thorough, he answered all my questions and took the time to make sure I understood everything. Which I really appreciated being a first time home buyer. I would recommend Home Detective of Minnesota to anyone in need of a home inspection.
