Testimonials

“Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and my family. Ensuring the safety of our home lives for years to come is a huge task, and you flat-out knocked it out of the park. The breadth of knowledge you brought to the table was far beyond what I’d expected and has helped immensely, in multiple ways. I also wanted to specifically mention the report and book you’ve provided. Not only are they both full of great information, but the report also made great use of current technology and exemplifies how businesses should harness that to their advantage. Being in the IT field, it’s something that I truly appreciate seeing (as well as using your iPad/iPhone to conduct the inspection) and wished that more companies would do. If there’s any way I can help grow your business, please let me know, as I’d recommend you with high praise.”

-Brian Kozma

I recently bought my first house and had an inspection done by Brent Shoemaker. The inspection went very well! I was very pleased with the way he conducted the inspection, and how thorough he was with everything. As this was my first experience, Brent was very willing to answer any questions that I had, and explained everything to me that he found. He also had a lot of tips for me, being a first time home buyer I was very appreciative of that. After the inspection I was provided a very readable and thorough report as well as a little book filled with great information regarding homes in general.


I would definitely recommend Shoemaker Inspections for anyone who is getting a home inspection. Not only did I learn a lot in the 3 hours I was with him, I now have peace of mind moving into my first home. This was definitely money well spent!

-Meaghan Machiele

“I have purchased several homes over the past thirty years, and have had home inspections on each one.  I have never before experienced  the level of concern and knowledge that was given  me by Mr Shoemaker.  Mr. Shoemaker was extremely thorough and took the time to explain all aspects of his inspection.  He showed genuine concern for me as a home buyer.  I would highly recommend him to anyone purchasing a home.”

– Sharon Hall

“Over the years, I’ve had several inspections on my own homes done, and have seen many in my time as a mortgage loan processor. Shoemaker Inspections did the most comprehensive inspection I’ve seen. Not only did it show me what issues I had to deal with, but they were prioritized so I knew what to correct first and what could wait. I highly recommend them!”

– Dan Mills

We were really pleased with Brent. He is very personable. Knowing his construction background made us at ease. We knew were were in good hands. He really knows his stuff.

-Honey Lee

I would agree with what everyone else has said. Very knowledgeable and informative. We were on a tight time frame and he was able to turn our report around in less than 24 hours.

-Scott Malefyt

“I think you deserve 5’s for all of them.  I sent your report to my Uncle who has been doing inspections for 20+ years and he really liked your report with all of the photos.  He also thought you did a very thorough job and the report was “excellent.”

As a real estate investor on the east side of Michigan, I've come to expect a high degree of experience, knowledge and professionalism in a home inspector. I was not disappointed! Moving out to the west side to our new family home was a big step for us and it was refreshing to have My Shoemaker handle this task. Not only was he very thorough, but he was also very knowledgeable with every aspect of the home that he inspected. I got an education just listening to him go through the things he found. The inspection report also very valuable to have. If I get into investing out this way down the road, My Shoemaker will be my first call inspector! Thanks Brent!

We have used Brent Shoemaker's expertise for the second time now, and once again, he did a thorough, professional job. The property had not been updated in recent years, and he provided a detailed assessment of the property. I especially appreciated that he let us pick his brain on the best way to approach some of the issues he found on the property. He gave us a good perspective on what needed to be addressed immediately, and what could be addressed over time. He was always open to questions and gave good advice.

We had Brent inspect our newly contracted and unheated HUD home in the middle of a very cold January day. He arrived on time and spent well over three hours going over the many aspects of the home that needed his close scrutiny. He is meticulous in his inspection. His digital report is very clear and forthright; we still refer to as we engage each step of the renovation process. We recommend his services highly and value the work he did for us. Thanks Brent!

Brent found a number of mostly minor issues for us to address before listing our house, and most of them were things we were unaware of, even though we live here!

Brent was great to work with, this being the first home I've purchased, he made it easy to understand and very clear on the conditions of the home. Not to mention, when the only appt. available that day was during my work hour, he went out of his way to reschedule to my needs. His integrity in his work is absolutely astonishing, calling out everything that is wrong and right about the home, even in front of the home owners! Due to his honesty, the home owner repaired some of the things that we're not met to code! Thanks Brent! You've saved me money and most importantly gave me the confidence into buying my first home!

When buying my new home, I called around to get quotes and estimates for my home inspection. Brent Shoemaker's was the lowest price among the bunch. For some that may be a cause for alarm, but I decided to take a chance and I'm glad I did! Everything, from the appointment reminders to the final inspection PDF is very professional and extremely useful for a first time home buyer like myself! I am very happy customer :)

Home Inspection-Brent Shoemaker

★★★★★

Prior to flying from Arizona to South Haven, Michigan on a short notice I reviewed numerous home inspection reports and found Mr. Shoemaker’s reports to be representative of other technological reports I have used in the past. I had flown in town for my father’s funeral and wanted to have a home inspection done the next day. So first, let me commend Mr. Shoemaker’s willingness to accommodate my schedule. His 3 hour inspection of our home resulted in a computerized report depicting areas of concern with recommendations and timelines for each repair. I feel confident that his report provides a clear road map for those improvements necessary to prepare the estate for sale. In addition to the quality of service rendered as a home inspector, he also made some calls and provided a referral for a home appraiser, realtor, and a pest control company. Each referral exemplified the same professionalism as Mr. Shoemaker. I agree with the comments expressed by the other reviewers. You cannot go wrong if you choose Mr. Shoemaker for your home inspection. His report is superb and he takes the time to discuss his findings in length. Thank you for living up to your reputation.

Kirsten and I recently purchased our first house and were a little cautious on who we should use for a home inspection. We decided to have Brent conduct the inspection after reading a few of the review, and to say the least he did not let us down. The first impression went a long way and after a few minutes of meeting Brent his personality shined through. He is extremely professional and thorough in every aspect of his inspection. At no point did either of us feel like Brent was rushing through areas of the house or that he had other places to be. He took time during each room to explain up keep that we might expect and educate the two of us on our new home. After looking through the report the pictures and detail are extremely helpful and a true value for what he offers! Thanks again Brent for everything you helped us with, we truly appreciate it!

Ive known Brent since high school and he has always been an honest, trustworthy and integritous person, so naturally I called him when I found out he had a home inspection company. Brent came in to our potential new home and went through everything with a fine tooth comb. He was meticulous about everything. Brent explained things to me that needed to be done so I understood what he was talking about. He also gave me pointers on how he would fix a couple of things that needed to be taken care of. Hes also great with kids. My 2 year old daughter had to come with me to the inspection and he was very patient with her. He even let her help him point the flashlight at things when he needed to see them better. I got a very well put together and easy to read inspection report emailed to me a few days after the inspection so my realtor could have it on Monday morning to review. Thank you so much for the hard work you did to inspect our house. If any one ever needs a home inspector Shoemaker Inspections is the first place I will send them.

As a first-time homebuyer, I was a bit apprehensive about the home inspection process. I contacted Brent, and he replied right away and fit us into his schedule for the following day. His attention to detail and patience in explaining his findings made me feel completely at ease and confident in moving forward with the home purchase. In addition, the report and informational booklet he provided will be great tools for us now and for our future as homeowners. Thanks Brent!
