It matters not what we say about our inspections as much as it matters what our clients say. The following is just a small sample of the feedback we get.
“I cannot recommend Mr Rider enough. He was on time, very nice, professional, & extremely detailed. As a first time home buyer I had a million questions for him as did my family. He is very knowledgeable and thorough. Thank you Mr Rider!” Leah Gifford Virginia Beach
“Andy was timely and punctual during the inspection as well as professional and personable. He did a thorough inspection and he concluded with a presentation of his findings in a very knowledgeable way. I feel he set up my wife and I to make the best informed decisions. I cant speak higher of Andy and his home inspection. I would recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection.” Ryan Ross Virginia Beach, VA
“Andy was fantastic! I was quite impressed with the level of detail and time he took on the house inspection and it definitely helped me to make an informed decision on purchasing our home. I don’t plan on ever moving again but if I did I would most certainly use the same company and request Andy to perform the inspection.” Jeffrey Shotwell Suffolk, VA
“Informative. Best part: Andy didn’t talk DOWN to me, but he did answer my questions. Also- he’s likable. He got right down to it and went over his findings with me before he issued the report, and the report matched exactly what we’d gone over. There’s a reason he was recommended! I would also recommend him.” Anne Sablatura Norfolk VA
“Andy provides a very thorough inspection! not only does he give you information about things that need to be repaired, but he gives you information about things you may want to upgrade and why. I know more about this house than I do any other house I lived in! Using anybody besides Atlantic house Whisperers is just foolish.” Kathryn Christian Chesapeake, VA
“I echo the past comments of previous clients. The service provided was done professionally and the report was very intensive and consistent to what home-buyers really need to know. The video presentation backs up very well his report. His insights on recommended repairs and replacement advisories are right on coupled with good source references to every category of items needing attention. Andy’s service is very well worth the cost and I would recommend him to any home-buyer in this area.” Reynaldo and Delia Ginete Virginia Beach, VA
“Andy was very thorough in his inspection and his overview of items that needed attention. He was very professional and cordial, and I would definitely use him again in the future. Thanks for a well done job.” Tanya Brothers Virginia Beach, VA
“Andy was recommended by our realtor. I was unable to attend the home inspection, but thankfully our husband was. This is our first home purchase so we are not very familiar with the process, let alone all of the possible issues that come along with a home inspection. Thankfully Andy was extremely thorough and took the time to explain certain issues to my husband while they were there. Andy was able to make us feel at ease with what absolutely needed to be fixed and what were “rookie” mistakes. Through the comprehensive and thorough report, I was able to understand as well and have complete confidence that our home will be safe. Thanks for everything! Highly recommended!” Jeffrey and Erica Midgett Virginia Beach, VA
“This is our third home that Andy has inspected. He inspected our home in Suffolk when we sold last summer and we were so impressed that we used Andy to inspect our Condo in Virginia Beach. So, naturally, we used Andy to inspect the Condo we are currently buying. He is very through in his inspections and answers all questions in a professional manner. His on site summary was very professional. He used his computer to cite areas of inspection with results and recommendations. His written report was through and professional and promptly submitted. He is highly recommended.” Roy Coulliette Virginia Beach, VA
Andy did a great job. His resultant report was both quick and very thorough. William Oden Portsmouth, VA
“I was very impressed with Andy. He is professional but also has a great personality. I felt comfortable asking questions. Andy is very thorough, leaving no stone unturned. He did the house inspection in the morning, had his report on his laptop with lots of pictures. He reviewed his report before leaving and I had the final report by that evening. Purchasing a house, especially an older house, is a huge decision and not to be taken lightly. Andy’s inspection helped me in making an informed decision. Thank you!” Dianne Benton Suffolk, VA
“Mr.Andy Rider is a very amazing person.. I watched him as he conducted the inspection on the house and he really goes into every detail of the house …and amazingly after the inspection, he will show you all the pictures that he took from the house ..and explained everything in the pictures in detail … so I would be able to understand every single detail of the problems that he found and that really help decide if will continue to purchased the house or not….thank you Mr.Andy Rider….” Maria Boco Virginia Beach, VA
“Andy inspected our home this spring, and we are very happy with his service! We were first time home buyers that were purchasing a property from across the country. We were not able to make it in for the home inspection. Andy sent a very thorough report, video, and addressed our concerns over the phone. He is very knowledgeable about houses, and gave us great insights into the home. I would strongly recommend using him for your home inspection!” Carlos and Cassandra Trinidad Virginia Beach, VA
“We absolutely LOVED working with Andy. He was friendly, knowledgeable and explained things to us in a way we could understand. He had a great sense of humor & allowed us to ask questions. I feel he did a very thorough inspection of our house & found even minor things that could have been overlooked. The price for the inspection was also very reasonable & he provided a great slide show after the inspection that was helpful. I would definitely recommend Andy!!” Thomas and Kacie Zawistowski Virginia Beach, VA
“Andy has done not only one but two inspections on homes I’ve purchased and I can honestly say he made me comfortable moving forward with both purchases. He was exceptionally thorough from beginning to end and even suggested which repairs could wait and which should be addressed sooner. I can be a bit of a helicopter at times but he welcomed me into every space he worked (that wasn’t too small). Would highly recommend him to anyone needing an inspection.” Sabina Holder Virginia Beach, VA
“Andy was very thorough and he made sure I understood the entire process and not to worry that he will be taking a lot of pictures that is all part of the process. This is our first time buying a house and I am very pleased with the.experience and the results. I will definitely highly recommend Andy for sure.” Gerry Fisher Virginia Beach, VA
“We thoroughly enjoyed working with Andy on the inspection of our new home. He was professional and friendly. We felt comfortable asking questions and all questions were answered to our utmost satisfaction. He showed a vast knowledge of home construction, wiring, heating, building codes, etc. that we knew we were getting the best advise for our money. His summary presentation was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Andy and Atlantic House Whisperer to anyone who needs a professional and thorough home inspection.” John Miller Virginia Beach, VA
“This is the second time I have gotten Andy to inspect a house for me, and he was awesome once again. I have recommended and will continue to recommend him again and again. thank you for all your help.” Trent Raiford Zuni, VA
“Our overall experience with this inspection by Andy was very positive. Very thorough and professional. He basically had the report completed by the end of the inspection to include photographs. He made suggestions on items that really weren’t critical at all, but helpful. The presentation he made at the end of the inspection was very good, running through the report on his laptop. The inspection was in the morning and we had the final report that afternoon! Excellent! The reason you have a home inspection is to have a trained professional give you a credible opinion on the condition of the most critical components of a home, and Andy provided that along with the confidence that we were purchasing a solid home. The additional (free) service of running a recall check on all appliances is a great bonus. Very happy with the company and Andy. Was well worth the money paid. Very competitively priced. Would recommend to anyone looking to purchase a home.” Craig and Jeanine Krenz Virginia Beach, VA
“I agree with all the below. Andy is meticulous. He inspected the home I want to buy as though it were his own. He detailed the problems in the order of concern and timeliness as well as things that would bear watching in the future. He even went so far as to explain the reason why not to put a storm door in front of a wooden door…something that i never knew!
I liked that he had pictures to go along with his report, and i look forward to reading it.
Andy is a busy man, but well worth hiring to do something as important as a home inspection.
Thumbs up and 4 stars from me!” Pamela Dudgeon Suffolk, VA
“Andy inspected my home earlier this month and did an excellent job. His inspection was very thorough and he was very knowledgable in a wide range of areas. I would definitely recommend him to friends looking to buy homes in the future and think the way he performs his inspection, explains his findings and prepares his report is excellent!” John Mazur Carrolton, VA
“Andy’s inspection saved my wife and I from a costly mistake. He discovered several issues not readily observable from a walk-through alone. Based on Andy’s inspection report, we were able to withdrawal our offer. And, a few weeks later, Andy performed another inspection on a different house that is in much better condition. Beyond the detailed written reports, I especially appreciated the on-line slide show summaries. They say pictures are worth a 1000 words. Pictures of issues discovered along with Andy’s voice-over description of the concern serves to explain problems in a manner that non-construction / carpentry experts can easily understand.
If we should ever require another home inspection, Andy will be our first call.” Jeff and Lisa Warner Carrollton, VA
“This was the first time I’ve ever purchased a home inspection. Andy was great. Very friendly to begin with and totally had my best interests in mind the whole time. Extremely knowledgable. His inspection was thorough and well documented. Made the process of starting conversations with the seller much easier. Thank you Andy!” Jim Esposito Suffolk VA

“Money well spent. Though our new home is new construction we wanted a home inspection conducted. Communications from AHW were timely and informative and the onsite inspection was thorough and personable. Highly recommend!” Matthew & Melissa St. Clair Suffolk
“Andy recently inspected what I hope to be my future home. He was professional and thorough. This is my first home purchase so my emotions are running wild…from happy and excited to nervous and overwhelmed. Andy took the time to explain everything to me in detail and provided me with general information about homes and answered all of my questions without hesitation. Andy’s professional, yet jovial disposition made this a great experience. I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing a home inspection. Thank you Andy and Atlantic House Whisperer!” LaTresha Barksdale Portsmouth
“Andy was friendly, thorough and detailed oriented. He allowed me to follow him around, ask questions, and make general comments without being annoyed. At the end of the inspection before he departed he provided a short slideshow of the items he identified which provided time to ask additional questions before seeing the written report. He was able to complete the detailed report within a few hours the next day (even on a Saturday). Everything was completed and presented in a professional manner. I would definitely recommend Andy to my friends and family to use.” Walter and Rebecca Sibley Virginia Beach
“Andy recently did a home inspection for us this past weekend and I must say he was very friendly, detail oriented and professional at all times. With this being my husband and I’s first home, we were extremely nervous and not sure what to expect. Andy quickly calmed our nerves and was quick to answer any questions we had, as well as explaining what he was finding throughout the inspection. We were presently surprised at the end of the inspection with a thorough presentation and video slideshow to incorporate the pictures of the things needing fixed. The turnaround time to get our home inspection report was super quick and that was the icing on the cake. It was nice not having to wait several days or weeks to get our report. Andy and Atlantic House Whisperer will come highly recommended to anyone looking for a home inspector!” Justin and Meghan Hartung Suffolk
“Andy recently did a home inspection on a home my son and I want to buy. He was thorough and very willing to answer all of our many questions. We feel like we learned so much and are now confident in our choice of this home because we have a better picture of the home’s condition. Some issues were obvious, but others were not apparent to us–Andy made sure we knew about and understood them all. I would recommend Andy to everyone, whether you are purchasing a home or already own a home–he will help to you to know all about your home!” Ava White Portsmouth,

“As a first time home buyer I was super nervous and had no idea what to expect when it came time for the home inspection. Andy was truly amazing. I was able to follow him around, grill him with questions, and left feeling as though I learned so much new information. He was extremely thorough and paid every attention to detail. He was very up front and honest about everything he found and gave me a truthful idea of what to expect from each situation. The slideshow at the end as he talked me through everything was nothing I was expecting and every bit a surprise. It was fantastic to see it all put together and presented in such a professional way. Andy clearly takes pride in his work and will be recommended to every person I know!” Valerie Delgado Chesapeake

I surely hope that Atlantic House Whisperers realize what a tremendous asset you are to their company!” Eddie Jones Portsmouth

You are a true professional in every sense of the word, and again we thank you.” Ariel and Amy Matienzo Virginia Beach
“Thanks Andy for coming out and inspecting my house. Totally thorough job. It made things so much easier for me. Your attention to detail and timely work put you at the top of your profession. I will certainly be using you for all future home purchases.” Erwin Vaughan Chesapeake
Just wanted to let you know again how awesome your work is. I told one the guys (Brian Griffin) I work with about you. Glad he was able to use your services. He just told me that his realtor will be referring you to all his future customers.
I’m going to keep telling people about AHWhisperer. I couldn’t have had a better team! You, Nate, Marcie from Atlantic Bay Mortgage, THE A TEAM!!!
Thank You“, Antonio Benitez Newport News
“My wife and I met Andy at our new home and he showed up on time and was very friendly. He explained the entire process to us and then got to work right away. Andy is very detail-oriented and focused. He inspected the entire house with care and attention to detail. He provided popcorn, candy, and water which was very thoughtful and just made the entire process extra special. After Andy was finished inspecting the home, he presented us with a slide show of the pictures he had just taken of each and every room, and explained what he discovered. He was able to point to the areas in the pictures while he discussed what he found. This presentation provided much needed information both verbally and visually! He also answered all of our questions with helpful and informed answers. All of this was on the actual day he did the inspection! We also received his report, (pictures and all) via email afterwards! Andy is extremely knowledgeable, efficient, and professional! We would definitely recommend him to anyone in the market for his services!” Logan Manning Chesapeake
“Mr. Andy Rider, this is Leah Beschier from the home inspection at 601 Pond Lane, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for doing such a thorough inspection of our home. When we bought our first home a few years ago, the home inspector only took about 20 minutes to go over the house and after we bought it we found a LOT more issues than he did. I was just so impressed by the amount of time you spent and work you did for us, and how you broke it down frame by frame for us. My family and I will recommend you to anyone we know that will be buying a home. Thank you so much for everything!” Leah Marie Beschier Chesapeake
“As a first time home buyer, I did not know what to expect from an inspection. Andy thoroughly explained the whole process in a way that I would understand.

His friendly persona is another plus, and makes it easy to recommend him to my friends!” Lela Waller Portsmouth
“Andy was extremely thorough and efficient. His presentation and report were excellent and easy to understand.

“As a first time home-buyer, and my first home inspection ever, Andy was absolutely amazing.

His inspection was incredibly thorough, and his presentation of pictures at the end was really helpful. I would absolutely recommend.” Amanda Simmon Portsmouth
“Being a first-time home buyer I have to admit I was nervous about my first home inspection. Mr. Rider put my mind at ease with in the first five minutes of inspection. There was much ground to cover so I was pleased to see Andy working at a fast pace and was amazed at how thorough he was with the home. No matter what he was working on he would stop and address each and every one of my concerns throughout the entire process. While giving his final report he addressed every issue in a pace and manner that I could understand and keep up with. In the future when someone I know is purchasing a home I will insist that they use Andy Rider for a home inspection.” Enrique Sealy Virginia Beach
“My wife and I recently had our almost 100 yr old home inspected and Andy was incredible. we were unable to be present when he did the inspection but the people who were there on our behalf we MORE than impressed. after we got the report from Andy we talked to him and he explained everything to us and made sure we understood 100% what was going on since we couldn’t be present. He is absolutely incredible and my wife and I are more than pleased with him. If you are looking for an awesome inspector who knows what he’s doing and does a beyond amazing job, HIRE ANDY!!!!” Dominic Conorzona Chesapeake

The inspection was through despite claims that an inspection had previously been completed. Thank you for your time, patience and professionalism.” Danielle Richards Sanders Portsmouth
“Andy looked at all the things you would expect, but did not stop there. As others noted, he picked up on things that should be done. I however added an additional challenge. I did have a question on if the floor was level, and how far off it was. He came with a laser level and we quickly documented an issue related to the fireplace weight on floor bending floor. I was able to take this to a structural engineer to get advice and back out of my contract without being stuck with a significant problem. The snacks and water also hit the spot as we drove in to be at inspection. Other inspectors have not welcomed people to be around, but he seemed to like to pass on information first hand.” Rick Hundstad Norfolk
Thank you so much for being so thorough with our home inspection! Your report is easy to understand and very complete! We really appreciate you taking the time to do such a comprehensive inspection. To be honest, Liz and I were a little nervous purchasing an older home in a place we were not too familiar with. But after your careful and detailed inspection, you placed our minds at ease. Thank you again and we hope we can work with you again soon!
Very respectfully, Eugene and Liz Mamaril” Portsmouth
