    "I can't thank you enough for all the inspections you have done for me over the span of my 17 plus year career in real estate in the Short Hills and Summit area. You have always been very thorough, keeping the potential buyers informed, but not nervous when there were serious issues. And, you've always had knowledge of how the problem could be resolved, an approximate price for taking care of it, and the names of several professionals to fix it. Along with you knowledge and calm manner, you have always managed to fit my customers into your busy schedule. Tom, thanks for your years of superior service! "

    "Tom Sanford of Empire Inspection has been performing home inspections for my clients for approximately nine years since I have been in the business of selling real estate. He does a very professional job. He is always punctual and efficient. He does his job while integrating the client in the inspection, answering their questions and explaining the various systems and maintenance issues of the home. His report is very thorough and easy to understand. I especially like the format of the report which gives an "executive summary," noting the major and minor items of concern, along with maintenance and upgrade type issues. When highlighting areas of concern, Tom also readily recommends specialists in the field that I can call upon for a second opinion. I especially like using Empire Inspection because the report is thorough, easy to read and breaks down the repair items into major, minor and maintenance categories. The summary at the end is helpful when sending around to the attorneys and realtors as you don't have to send the entire report, just the summary. I like using Tom because I trust that he will find everything that is deficient in a home, but he doesn't make a bigger deal about things than is necessary. He is rarely late and the inspections are done in a timely manner. I also like Tom because he lets the realtor do their job and he does his job. He doesn't comment about the value of the house, never asks how much they paid or anything that is not his business! Lots of home inspectors do, and I find it can be interference."
