Homestars Reviews about Zegarra Home Inspections

Michael is friendly, knowledgable & a true professional.  He put us at ease with the home inspection process.  I’ve been through three home inspections and this experience was by far the best.  His report is incredibly detailed with pictures to show us what he is referring to.  He has equipped us with the knowledge to make an informed decision on our new home.  I will definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home inspection

V. Tang – Richmond BC

We contacted Michael because he was referred to us by another couple, and it was one of the best decisions we made during our purchasing process. Michael was extremely patient, thorough and worked around our tight schedule. He was professional, courteous and very insightful. Michael took the time to explain every aspect of the home inspection process to us and didn’t leave until he made sure we were comfortable with the presentation. I would wholeheartedly recommend Michael to anyone who is looking to buy .

R. Sabour – North Vancouver BC

Michael did an amazing job. He was in the 3,250 sq. ft. home we planned to buy for a few hours. He really took him time with every aspect of the home. I followed him around during the inspection and he explained all the details to me, made recommendations, and gave advice. He also gave cost estimates for work that needed to be done. Likewise, he was personable, professional and polite. A family member familiar with inspection work told us it was the most thorough report he had ever seen. He encouraged us to contact him with any further concerns, and the report was not only timely but extremely complete. He has equipped us with the best knowledge to make an informed decision on our new home, and we would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home inspection. We were so happy with his service, and will certainly be calling him for any services needed in the future.

A. San Juan – Vancouver BC

Michael was pleasant and professional. The inspection was very thorough as was the walk-through explaining what he found. There was one item that has been referred to the builders and some recommendations which I will follow. Follow-up was good and I have no regrets on using this service.

Jenifer Barnett – Burnaby

Michael Zegarra was recommended to me by a close family friend. My fiance and I had a very tight timeline for the inspection and Michael gave us multiple options in order to meet our needs. Being a first time home owner, he was very thorough and clearly explain all the steps involved with me. After explaining that I couldn’t meet him in person, he took the time to talk me through all my worries and made me feel at ease with the process. Adam, my fiance, did the inspection walk-through with Michael and only had awesome things to say. Overall, it has been an excellent experience and we have already shared his contact with some of our friends.

Kathy Do – Burnaby BC

As a first time home buyer, I was not sure what to expect with the home inspection. Michael was very thorough with both his inspection and his explanation of findings. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and personable. The detailed report he wrote was very descriptive and easy to read. I will certainly recommend Zegarra Residential Inspections to all of my friends in the future.

Amanda – Vancouver BC

We were very fortunate to have Michael as our home inspector. As a first time home buyer we were not familiar with the inspection procedure. Michael was very patient and explained everything to us using the language we understand. He did a thorough inspection even though we called him out last minute and it was getting really late. He emailed us a hard copy report the next day as promised and he also gave us a follow up call to answer all the questions we had. On his report he listed each item that requires attention, service or replacement. I was really impressed with the level of service he provided. I will definitely recommend his service to my friends and anyone who’s purchasing a property.

Claire Wang – Vancouver BC

As a licensed Real Estate Professional in the Lower Mainland, clients often ask for recommendations during the sales process. Michael is not only an effective communicator, but very knowledgeable and detail oriented. All of my clients who have used Michael, have found him to be extremely professional, and appreciate how he takes great care in spending time with them. He explains the finer details, and answers any of their questions, even post inspection over e-mail or the telephone. In addition to his detailed reports included in his extensive service package, he provides a walk thorough to allow clients to view remedies, deficiencies and options for upgrades; allowing them to view these with their own eyes.  His exceptional service and approach not only impresses the buyers, but also the listing agents. Michael’s thorough and concise work comes highly recommended!

Faisal Vallani (Real Estate Professional)

I was buying a condo and don’t know much about the structural or mechanical aspects of the building and wanted some expertise. Michael was knowledgeable and helpful with his comments and inspection. I was impressed with his thoroughness and he took the time to answer all of my questions.

J. O’Donnell – New Westminster BC

My realtor has recommended several Home Inspectors to me for my going-to-be new home/apartment. It is pure luck that I pick Michael Zegarra. He is so thorough and detail orientated on the inspection, then walks me through the Strata, pointing out the thing I need to aware with explanation on his findings. Other than the usual practice providing the client an inspection report, he give me a surprise follow-up call to see if I need any further clarification. Also, he is willing to gobeyond on providing some handy man to do home reconstruction. Quite an extraordinary customer service provider.

Doreen Cheng – Burnaby BC

I appreciated Michael’s organized and comprehensive work. Well prepared pre-inspection document, detailed orientation and Q&A during inspection and final report with suggestions settled all my uncertainties as a new home buyer in Canada. I would definitely recommend him.

TC – Port Moody

Thank you Michael for all the good work. I appreciate your diligence and friendly dealing and would recommend you to my friends.   Have a great day.  Thanks.

D. Bhardwaj

As first time homeowners, we were unsure of the process. However, Michael Zegarra was very thorough, kind and helpful, which was comforting to us. He was very confident and did an excellent and comprehensive analysis of the unit. We are very pleased with his performance. We are very impressed with the quality of the customer service, and we will definitely recommend your company and use you in the future.

J. Lines & D. Griffith – Downtown Vancouver BC

Our close friends hired Michael for a home inspection for their property and highly recommended him to us. As first time home buyers we were quite nervous as owing a home is a sizeable investment and commitment. We knew a home inspection was important.  We called a few home inspection companies to compare their services but ultimately decided on Michael. His approach for our first phone conversation immediately put us at ease. He spent time answering our questions, some of our concerns of the house and above all helped us prepare for the day of inspection.  During the home inspection, Michael was thorough and informative in explaining his evaluation of the property. He identified in particular some major issues of a wet basement as a result of failed perimeter drainage. We didn’t know how important drainage was and the major costs involved repairing it. With this major deficiency along with many other recommended improvements, we were able to renegotiate our terms of purchase saving us thousands of dollars. We love the house and are truly appreciative of his efforts. My wife and I are now proud home owners in Burnaby.

M. & P. Sohail – Brentwood Burnaby BC

I was buying a condo and don’t know much about the structural or mechanical aspects of the building and wanted some expertise. Michael was knowledgable and helpfull with his comments and inspection. I was impressed with his thoroughness and he took the time to answer all of my questions.

J. Wood – New Westminster BC

Michael did a great job of explaining the inspection process over the phone. He explained things in a non-technical way and that was extremely important for me since I was a first time home buyer. He spent some time reading the engineering document that was given to me by the stratta and explained things very clearly. His inspection was very thorough, from exterior to the interrior, he checked everything, small or big, he made sure nothing was left untested. In his final inspection report he explained things in detail and made recommendations that I found extremely helpful.

I would recommend Zegarra inspection to my family and friend without hesitation as the inspection service and professionalism was remarkable!

A. Nematollahi – Downtown Vancouver BC

I have used Michael for a number of inspections for my clients. He is very honest, thorough, knowledgeable, and experienced . He spends time and explains everything to the potential buyer so they know what to expect from the property. I would recommend his services to anyone, and will keep referring him to my clients.

Diana Klejne (Real Estate Professional)

As a first time condo buyer, Zegarra Home Inspections has been an amazing help. Not only was there a thorough inspection of both the suite and the buliding/strata, Michael took time to go though the report with me and explain all the results and recommendations in a way I can easily understand. Thanks so much for making an intimidating process so simple and stress-free.

S. Cheng – Downtown Vancouver BC

To buy a home is probably the biggest and most important financial decision a person can make in their life time.When it comes to the home inspection,I know I can trust Michael Zegarra not only as a dedicated professional but as an honest one as well.He has made my decision to go ahead with my purchase a lot more worry-free.That is why I have no reservation recommending Michael and Zegarra Home Inspections to everybody.

G. Lengyel – Coquitlam BC

Thank you for the follow up. We found your report to be comprehensive and thorough and it gives us a better understanding  what to expect in the future. It would have been beneficial to have a visual inspection of the roof but understand the difficulty of access and we investigated the issue in the strata documents as you suggested. Following up in the strata minutes was one the concerns you raised, we are confident that the stata has issues in hand. It was good to have a phone conversation with you and be able to have questions answered immediately. The photos in the report were useful as we are doing this from a distance and can’t be there in person. Subjects have been removed and the deal moves forward so thank you for your timely and thorough inspection and feedback.

B. Reed – Australia

I received Michael’s contact through a friend and was very happy with his inspection. He was extremely organized and professional. He did a very thorough inspection of everything in the apartment including many things that I would have never thought to check myself. He was very patient and helpful to answer any and all of our questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend him to any new home buyers.

Len Dominelli – Vancouver BC

Very professional, friendly and thorough. Having the home inspected was the most important thing to do before we removed subjects. Michael helped us plan inadvance of the inspection day which really helped reduce our anxiety. On the day of inspection he explained all the deficiencies and offered recommendation on improvements. That really helped us as we’re first time home owners. We are comfortable and confident with the report provided and would definitely recommend his services to friends and family. Thank you.

L. Ross – South Burnaby

Michael Zegarra was referred to me by my Real Estate friend.  We are first time home buyers so we didn’t know who to trust to do a good job and I trust her judgement.  We had a deadline to get the inspection done and Micheal was able to squeeze us in on his already full schedule.  I could tell when we got there that he established a friendly rapport with the owner.  It was a pleasant experience. He was friendly, professional, efficient and gave us great advice to add value to the home in the future.  We learned a lot from him in a short amount of time.  His service is reasonably priced for the value that he gives.  Other inspectors we checked into didn’t offer a life-time contact for future issues for this price.  We recommend him above all of the ones that we checked into.

T. & D. Campbell – Cloverdale Surrey BC

I came across Michael while searching for a home inspector and found that Michael was kind, courteous and knowledgeable throughout the inspection process. He pointed out specific items to look out for and gave me the confidence to finalize my decision on a home purchase. His follow up after the inspection was admirable as well. We were planning to renovate the property and Michael provided contacts in various trades to assist with my project planning. I highly recommend Michael for your future home inspection.

Andy Lee – Richmond

We would like to thank you so much for the thorough house inspection. Monica and I had taken a fairly good look at this property prior to making an offer. Our family friend hired Zegarra Home Inspections to inspect their Vancouver Special and highly recommended Michael to us for our home inspection. As a matter of fact, our realtor had also suggested three home inspectors that she confidently supported for any first time home buyer, Zegarra Home Inspections was on her list! We had no idea just how detailed you were, you helped us address many important questions with the homeowner which we really appreciate. You patiently guided us through the inspection of the home, explained some heating system maintenance tips and performance of other mechanical systems. You covered points we never would have considered such as important electrical improvements with ground fault interrupter GFCI outlets near all water sources and location of emergency shut off valves. Your inspection report was very detailed and easy to read. The many photographs included in the report helped us reference the problems to be fixed. We are very pleased with the professional inspection of this property and very happy with our new purchase. We know that anyone requesting a home inspection from your company is getting the best service anyone could expect.

K & M Palmer – Steveston Richmond BC

I wanted to thank you for taking the time to come out to the Blackford properties. Everything was perfect. I found you to be very informative and through with your assessment of the property.

P. Robertson – South Vancouver BC

My boyfriend and I are first time home buyers and you can imagine how nerve wracking and unsure the feeling can be. But our realtor made the whole experience a wonderful journey. She recommended Michael for our home inspection. He made us feel very at ease. I felt great comfort in what he had to tell us. Michael was thorough and informative and didn’t mind answering questions even days after the inspection. I highly recommend Michael and his services to my family and friends.

R Iglesias & J Thomson –  Port Coquitlam

It was truly a pleasure to have Michael as my home inspector. He was punctual, detailed, organized, thorough, and readily available to discuss and answer any questions I had before, during and after the inspections. Michael makes sure that everything is in order and ensure that you understand what needs to be done. I highly recommend him.

Gabriela – Vancouver BC

I needed to have someone inspect my home within two days and I was fortunate to have Michael Zegarra of Zegarra Home Inspections do the inspection on such short notice. He was prompt and easy to reach. Michael was very professional and provided a high level of customer service. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

He investigated every aspect of my home from top to bottom and provided an accurate report with detailed information. Once I reviewed the report, he took the time to follow up with any questions and concerns that needed clarification. Although, this was a very stressful time for me, Michael was very patient and made an extra effort to provide a follow up report when it was required. Michael came through on everything he committed to. I would highly recommend you choose Zegarra Home Inspections.

S. Bains – Burnaby BC

MIKE ZEGARRA Home Inspection Service was recommended to me by one of my best friend, Ivan C. who is also my banker.

My girlfriend and I were buying our first home together, a 1 bedroom townhouse with a garage. The place looked really great but as everyone knows, you really don’t know what the condition is until after an inspection.

This is where Mike’s great service comes in. We found that Mike is VERY PROFESSIONAL but at the same time, super down-to-earth and honest. He didn’t rush and cut corners like some home inspectors do. The more we listened to what Mike had to say, the more confident and at ease we became in knowing that this home is the right choice for us.

From the 1st phone call with Mike, to the actual inspection, to the follow-up calls and inspection report, Mike showed why his service is worth every penny.

For sure, I will be recommending Mike Zegarra Home Inspection Services to all of my friends.

Julian & Eva   – Richmond  BC

Michael Zegarra is a conscientious, meticulous, and communicative inspector. As a first time buyer, I was extremely impressed by Michael’s analysis of the material and construction of the condo I bought. Michael explains everything in detail, giving the right amount of information for clients. Highly recommended!

Michael – Burnaby BC

Michael is professional and thorough. We asked him to inspect a house we were looking to buy. In our experience, here’s what you can expect from Michael Zegarra: 1. He’ll walk you through everything he’s going to do, how he’s going to do it, and most importantly why he is going to do it 2. He’ll look through every nook and cranny of your potential future home, appliances included, in a non invasive manner, meaning he’s not going to carve holes into walls 3. He’ll explain his reasoning/thoughts as he is inspecting 4. He’ll deliver a comprehensive report shortly after the inspection. In our case it was less than 5 days 5. He’ll provide you with recommendations on fixes that should be done, make recommendations as to some other fixes that may have an impact on the long run, and also nice-to-haves Throughout the process, he will always keep the client informed. Overall, we are impressed with Michael service. We think that the level of service and quality we received is quite rare in the modern day and age and would and will recommend him to anyone who needs a house inspected.

Michele – Maple Ridge BC
