Every nook and cranny was inspected with Larry Smyj of Aurora Home Inspections! He even checked the microwave by making us a much-needed bag of popcorn! The report he then sent was gorgeous: easy to follow and understand, covered every part of every room, and it included links and guidelines/advice on how to improve areas that needed work, and in general how to keep your home in good shape. If we have questions in the future about our hopeful to-be-house, I would not hesitate to reach out to Larry as he knows this stuff in and out! He even gave us our first house-warming present, a 25 foot tape measure 🙂 Fantastic experience.

I had the good fortune of finding Larry at Aurora Home Inspections…  Within 24 hours of speaking with Larry on the phone, he was present on the ground taking a close look at every detail of the property.  Not only did he do a remarkably thorough job at lightning speed, but he also did so with genuine warmth and good humor.  Most importantly, he displayed an incredible amount of professionalism and integrity.  For example, when I asked him about additional features he could easily have added (e.g., mold lab testing), he made sure that I was fully aware of the relative necessity of each, instead of padding his own bill.  He was even wiling to advise against extra features that would have brought more revenue for him for very little extra work.
Finally, he truly goes the extra mile by offering additional services (e.g., product recall assessment, pest assessment — as a licensed exterminator himself) that other inspectors may need to refer to other professionals.
If you need a property inspected, do yourself a favor and reach out for Larry at Aurora Home Inspections!

We just recently booked Larry for our home inspection and were extremely happy we did. We needed someone to evaluate and inspect a home before we purchased it. Larry arrived right on time and was very personable. He was very well versed on everything related to the home. He was able to answer all of our questions. We had a lot of them being that we are first time home buyers and not experienced in this field at all!
Larry gave us a preliminary report and then emailed us the full report.
I would definitely recommend him for anyone looking for a home inspector

Larry was extremely professional and did an excellent job.  Covered room by room without rushing and answered any questions that came up. He took the time to explain what he was doing, what he found, the condition of what he found and the best way to remedy it. Tags were placed throughout my basement clearly labeling boilers, heaters, water main, switches, etc.

… great job with my home inspection. He was very knowledgable, explained everything he did in detail and was very patient and concerning. I would definitely recommend him to friends; he was my first home inspector and if I every purchase more properties in the future, I will call always call Aurora Home Inspections!

…answered all our questions (first home purchase…) and was great to work with. Took extra time to explain various details during the inspection. Report and any related follow-ups were of excellent quality and delivered in a timely manner. Very knowledgeable given his background as a former contractor.

…Within 24 hours of speaking with Larry on the phone, he was present on the ground taking a close look at every detail of the property.  By the next morning, he had completed a detailed 20+ page report, complete with assessments, pictures, explanations, and recommendations…. when I asked him about additional features he could easily have added (e.g., mold lab testing), he made sure that I was fully aware of the relative necessity of each, instead of padding his own bill.

…The ability to pay with a credit card on a square card reader was fantastic as well.  Larry also provided us with a great guide to home ownership and things to look out for.  He even gave us advice like checking with the tax assessor’s office to make sure the taxes are accurate for the home.

He helped to ensure and prioritize with us and our real estate agent , that the appointment would happen on time, and was punctual. The actual inspection was great- he was thorough, and asked the Sellers important questions on our behalf. He also showed us tips for how to use our new home & it’s elements effectively.

….I used Larry’s report (and still am) as a reference to make home repairs after we closed on the house.

….He calmed our nerves throughout the day with light hearted jokes, anecdotes, advice, and referrals while all the while remaining extremely professional and on-task. I truly feel like we “know” this house now. The report was created quickly and professionally, complete with easy to read bullet points, prose, and clarifying photographs. Even after the submission of the report and our payment (by credit card, on the day of the inspection- great convenience!) Larry has been quick to reply to our emails as we continue to move through the process from contract to closing.
