Testimonials and Reviews

Thank you so much, James.

We really enjoyed working with you and greatly appreciate the care you put into your inspection and explanations. As first time homebuyers, you did so much to ease our apprehensions with the process. We will absolutely recommend your business to anyone we know purchasing a home, because we couldn't possibly be any more satisfied and happy with your work! Thank you.

Today was a great day with Mr. Beck. He was very detailed and described his process and procedures. Very knowledgeable and willing to share the challenges and changes that would be safe and better for us as a homeowner. James is truly the best and will deliver the results while saving you money as well. Keep up the great work sir and thank you for your incredible service.

James was awesome - he did an incredibly extensive inspection of our house. We were very comfortable moving forward with our home purchase with the peace of mind that James' inspection brought us. This is the second time we've had James as the inspector for a house purchase, and both times he was amazing.

James did a very thorough job inspecting my soon to be home. He was friendly, professional and answered all of my questions with useful details. I found his report to be clear and easy to read. His diligence and skill even impressed my protective father (a knowledgeable homeowner and extremely meticulous man). James has earned my trust and I now feel more confident and safe completing the purchase of my home. I would highly recommend his services.

As a real estate broker, having resources that are knowledgeable and detailed about their job is priceless. That's why I knew I would use James Beck with Soundview Inspections when it came time for my own duplex purchase since he has helped a few of my clients as well. What I appreciate about James is that he is thorough, has experience with homes and can help answer questions onsite as they come up. Thanks for the great customer service and great work James!

“Sound View Home Inspections turned out to be a terrific choice for home inspections. Being a hands-on type, I wanted to be present during the inspection and learn as much as I could about my new home. My inspector, James Beck Jr., conveyed trustworthiness from the start and was more than eager to educate me and ensure I understood the significance of any problem he discovered.
I was able to ask any question I could think up and follow him around during the entire inspection. Although I didn’t follow him into the insulation-filled attic, he crawled in with protective suit and discovered a previous roof leak in a remote, hard-to-access corner (in other words, I give 10 out of 10 on thoroughness).
He was extremely helpful and obviously cares about his work and his customers’ peace-of-mind in their potential new home. I highly recommend this company to anyone who will listen.”

I appreciated your time today and the home inspection work you performed. The report was spot on and gave much more detail than what I was expecting. I know I will certainly recommend your services to anyone who needs a top notch home inspection. Off the top of my head what I appreciated most was your honesty, fair prices, on time, expected duration, level of detail oriented review, general knowledge, respect for safety for yourself and crew.

James was a very professional, friendly and personable inspector. He walked us through everything he found on our home and provided accurate information on each item to help us understand the level of importance and how to address the issue ourselves. He went out of his way to fit us into his schedule and his rates were very reasonable! I would recommend him to all of my friends and family.
It was an absolute pleasure meeting you and having you do the home inspection for me. I appreciate all the feedback provided in this report and will have Sekou pass on the information to the current home owner for resolution on the more critical items. Thanks again for all of your help. You are a true professional and have a fabulous rapport with your customers. All the best to you with your business, Feel free to stop by and say hello whenever you end up in the Camano Island area..

Hi James

Good Morning Mr. Beck
I mean James, thank you for all of your hard work, and you did a FANTASTIC job in the inspection Report. I am so humble and grateful that you didn't hold back any punches, sometimes we really want something, but we have to look at the bigger picture, this home is lovely on the outside and inside, but it has some serous issues that needs to be addressed, and they will. Whatever GOD has in store for me, it's for me, and it's going to come as a Blessing and not a Curse, so I am allowing his Will "JESUS" to be done in all aspects of my life. God Bless You and Have A Lovely Day.
Karen not Kimberly Take Care.... LOL
