We moved from CT not knowing anything about FL Real Estate and the issues that complicated how to choose the best house for us.  What is wind mitigation? What is an air handler? And what, exactly, did we need to know about hurricanes before we closed on a house?  Jim and Rachel kindly spent an entire Saturday morning walking us through the house we were considering, explaining everything they were doing and why, until we understood it, answered questions we did not even know to ask, and offered a professional tutorial on how we should care for the house in the future.  We took lots of notes!  In the end, their counsel made all the difference.

We used Coastal Guardian Home Services when buying our present home and found them to be very professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. They paid attention to detail, climbing up on the roof and into the attic while inspecting the property. We feel a comprehensive evaluation of the structure, mechanicals, plumbing and electrical was made, enabling us to feel confident regarding our home purchase. We would heartily recommend this service to prospective home buyers.

TOP NOTCH! What a great experience! Jim and his team are masters at their craft. Jim was on time, professional and extremely attentive to detail. His communication throughout the entire process was friendly, easy to understand and very thoughtful. I would highly recommend The Coastal Guardian to anyone considering a home purchase. Save your time and save the hassle. Call Jim for an honest, fair price. You won’t find a more trustworthy or harder working inspector in FL… PERIOD!

While purchasing a new home in town I heard from good authority that Coastal Guardian came highly recommended. When it was time for that all important home inspection I called them, and I am so thankful that I did. As soon as I called, I was talking to Rachel who was personable and efficient. She explained the entire process, answered my questions and booked my appointment. When Jim came out to do the inspection I was impressed with his professionalism, his knowledge and his thorough attention to detail. I knew that I was in good hands. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Coastal Guardian to anyone needing their services. They are the real deal!
