Testimonials

Jeff Frishof is always our first choice as a Home Inspector for both our buyers and sellers. We appreciate his level of expertise and professionalism. He educates our clients about the condition of the home, without alarming them, and he will frequently suggest a solution. We also appreciate his professional approach to getting the invoice and the contract to the clients, and the quick turnaround. He e-mails us the report, and provides a hard copy the next day. He is excellent!

This Code of Ethics is applicable to all CREIA members as defined in the CREIA bylaws. {EFFECTIVE January 6, 2006}
