  • 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.

    thumb Arthur Hornbaker
  • 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!!

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.

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.
