Home inspection: deliverables included a detailed written narrative report, price estimates for repairs, and a termite report. We needed a home inspector for our potential property purchase in the Ridgewood/Glendale area of Queens, NY. After checking on-line for licensed engineers specializing in home inspection in the area–we used some home-inspection industry associations to verify affiliation and credentials (http://www.ashi.org/) is one of them. The search turned up three “good-looking” potential inspectors, all providing the narrative report including images. All three answered my emails promptly, and all gave upfront estimates. Upon asking for specific references–houses they had inspected in the past 12 months with identical construction as our intended purchase, only one, Gregory, came back with specific locations. Convinced Gregory was our person, we booked him in. We had a horrible day–the snow was heavy this winter in NYC, and the ground was covered with snow and it was sleeting at the time of inspection. No matter, the inspection must go on. Unfortunately, we could not inspect the roof, but given the owners’ own time in the house, he determined the actual life-left in the roofing system. Taking into account the original skylights, documenting some leakage, he could confidently give us the report the roof needed to be replaced sooner rather than later. Gregory spent nearly two hours at the home, going through every detail we had originally considered an issue, and found several trouble-spots we had missed/would have never thought of–an example was the ladder to the roof–NYC code states it needs to be metal; it was wooden. Overall, he was great; showed up on time, delivered the report completely detailed as promised, and on time. His best comment was, when we asked him about what he thought about the property, what was “good” about it, he replied, “You will have to ask your real estate agent about that. My job is to find out what is wrong with the property.” On the do and do not front: Do: Your research into the home inspector–check his professional affiliations; do your own walk-through and document where you see issues, and then bring that list along with you for the home inspector. Don’t: let price dictate the engineer you select–the cheapest is not always the best. Finally, as the day was miserable and we could not get to the roof, Gregory agreed to come back and re-inspect the areas in question and to head up on the roof/ exterior crawlspace for an additional nominal fee at our convenience.

He did a home inspection for me. He checked the exterior and interior of the home and did a check of the roof. His price was what he advertised on his website. He did charge me additional to provide estimates for work he recommended to be done and he gave me a senior discount. The price was fair for the service performed. The service was great! He emailed me a lengthy report. It was very detailed and thorough. I did call him back with questions and he responded that same day. He was also on time for the appointment.
- Arthur L. – Bronx, NY
I used Gregory Martins to do my home inspection seven years ago. After looking at several homes in Brooklyn, I finally came across the one that I felt was a fabulous fit for my needs. I made an appointment with Mr. Martins to view the house. He was extremely professional and explained the entire inspection process and the report he would be mailing us. He did a thorough inspection of the house (everything from basement to roof). He spoke to the home owner and at the end of the inspection gave us a list of possible issues with the house. One of the issues he warned us about was the basement with it’s full bath and kitchen and the issues that it presented. Afterwards, he provided us with the written home inspection report and made sure to write up his findings on the basement. With his inspection report we were able to have the home owner lower her asking price.
Over the years, I have kept reviewing his home inspection report. He had informed us of several issues and what the cost of the repairs may be when he inspected the house. As time passed some of those issues became reality and his projected cost was very close to what we paid. A few months ago, we had the Department of Buildings come to our house and were looking at the possibilities of thousands of dollars in fines for the basement if we could not prove that we did not do the work. When we went to ECB Court, we were able to produce Mr. Martins inspection with it’s thorough description and had the fines tossed out. He saved me at least ten thousand dollars in fines.
Mr. Martins was very professional, responded quickly to all my calls and inquiries (pre and post inspection), his price was reasonable and he managed to save me tons of money at the time I bought the house as well as afterwards!!!!
