  • review rating 5  I've worked with a lot of inspectors before and Reed is probably among one of the best that I've had the please of working with. He was very nice, professional, patient, and very detailed! He explained everything as he walked us around the house and actually pointed out what the problems were, so we could see it ourself and ask questions if we didn't know. Later once we received the actual report we were able to understand the report and his comments which was also accompanied by plenty of photos. If you ever get the chance to work with Reed you wont regret it!!! Lastly thanks so much Reed for explaining everything for us in detail to make sure we were on the same page!!

  • review rating 5  Last week we asked Reed to inspect our prospective new home. On a moments notice he went to the home, did a very detailed comprehensive and well documented inspection. He spent a great deal of time inspecting the home and then walked us through each and every item he found to be a concern and answered all of our questions. Our experience with Reed exceeded our expectations. He also followed up after the inspection and offered additional resources and advice. I would use Reed again and would refer family and friends to him as well. Thank you, Reed.

  • review rating 5  I am a local real estate agent and I had a client who was closing on their new home, but there was an issue on the day of closing. Without hesitation Reed - Home Detective Owner came to the home to help us review the problem at hand. He clearly is knowledgable and I was amazed by his willingness to help my buyers on a short notice. I will definitely be referring out more of my business to Home Detective Inspection Company - MN! It's nice to have an expert you can trust! PS - We were able to close that day with confidence because of Reed.

  • review rating 5  Reed has exceptional customer service and does an outstanding job inspecting homes. After the inspection he responded ASAP to any questions we had and provided us with so many additional resources and services that we didn’t know existed. He also has a great network for home construction updates. Very personable, friendly, responsive and professional. I have used other home inspectors in the past and Reed is the one I will recommend to my friends and family to use.

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.

Katie S.

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.
