Dave was incredible to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone buying a home, especially first time home buyers. He was responsive, knowledgeable, professional, and the report he gave exceeded our expectations. Dave's attention to detail is unmatched and we were able to purchase our home in confidence knowing it had been inspected by a true expert.
Andrew D. (Greenwich, NY Home Inspection 8/2017)
David was great. He came out on a Saturday morning to do the inspection on short notice. He was prompt and super thorough, I followed him around and he explained everything and answered my questions. He sent the complete report the next morning. He provided an excellent service.
Rusty W. (Colonie, NY Home Inspection 5/2017)
"My wife and I were purchasing a new model home and still wanted to have a home inspection done. I located Dave through a internet search and was unfortunately pressed
for time to get the home inspection completed. Dave was able to accommodate me with an appointment in a short time frame. On the day of the inspection I arrived early to find Dave getting started.
Dave was knowledgeable and explained everything to me. He was detailed and took many photographs to supplement his report. The report was detailed and provided the day after my inspection. If you
need an inspection done, don't hesitate to call Dave. I would hire Dave again without hesitation!"
Michael A. (Delanson, NY Home Inspection 4/2017)
"David's inspection was thorough, and he was happy to explain his process and the details of his findings. The report he provides includes not only detailed
photographs, but appropriate diagrams of proper plumbing and links to websites explaining why certain things matter. I would definitely hire him again".
Brittany S. (Albany, NY Home Inspection 3/2017)
David's inspection was very thorough and he has a great amount of knowledge regarding homes in the area. He was also very punctual, personable and reasonably priced. I
highly recommend him for any home inspection..
Jill M. (Albany, NY Home Inspection (1/2017)
Dave was extremely professional and provided an exhaustive report of every detail he could find. He also took the time to explain everything to me. I highly recommend

Working with David of HouseAbout Homes was a pleasure. He was professional, very thorough and very patient with answering all my questions. His report was received very
quickly and was lengthy and detailed. In addition to good explanations of any problem areas, it contained photos of those areas, recommendations and many helpful links to other informational sources.
I believe I will be using this report as a reference guide for quite a while.
Joann M. (Delmar, NY Home Inspection, 11/2016)
Dave's inspection and reports are the best. He is very conscienceless, throughout and very detailed. Dave not only puts the time and energy into his work he takes the time to show, explain and
answer any questions you made have regarding the inspection. The follow up is fast and timely and the full report with photo's and comments are sent to your email for you to examine.
You will not be disappointed.
Frank B. (Waterford, NY Home Inspection, August 2016)
Mr. O'Keefe is a consummate professional and expert in the field of home inspections. I highly recommend his extremely capable knowledge! When I first looked at the home we have a contract on, I had a team of friends and family who also went through with me "inspecting" as we went. Well they missed several major issues that Mr. O'Keefe did not!! This was the best money I've spent in a very long time!! Get him booked as soon as possible!
Stephanie R. (Castleton, NY Home Inspection, 5/2016)
"David is one of the best home inspectors in the area. He pays attention to detail and you come away knowing everything you need to know about a prospective purchase. I WILL use him on our next purchase."
Norman L. (Old Chatham, NY Home Inspection 4/16)
" David of HouseAbout Homes provided us with a very detailed and thorough inspection. Buying a 50 year old house comes with plenty of questions, and David spent about 3 hours going over every detail of the house. The report included recommendations, color photos of issues, diagrams, and helpful links. Well worth the cost of the inspection."
Jimmy V. (Ballston Spa, NY Home Inspection, 2/2016)
"Dave was professional, thorough, and knowledgeable. The turnaround time for his report was super fast. The report was very professional and easy to understand. I would
recommend him for your home inspection and since he saved us from buying a terrible mistake, I will be using him for our next inspection too!"
Lori F. (Troy, NY Home Inspection, 2/2016)
Last month, 12/2015, David inspected home in which we were interested in purchasing. He did an excellent inspection of the house and provided a report in excruciating detail of the property. As a result of his inspection we withdrew our offer on the home. It was a "money pit" with no bottom.
Norman L. ( Old Chatham Home Inspection, 12/2015)
"Thanks for doing our inspection for us. The report is very detailed and you were very thorough. I think you answered all of our questions during the inspection. We had a couple experts come in to give estimates on some of the recommended repairs and we just showed them the appropriate section of the report and they all commented on how good and detailed the report was.
I will surely recommend you to anyone that is looking for a good home inspector."
Joey H. (Guilderland Home Inspection, 6/2015)
"Super professional, we utilized his services in 2 homes and in both he arrived ahead of time, and in both times I have learned so much. The way Dave goes about his inspections it's not only informatiove it's highly educational. I would highly recommend him."
"David completed a home inspection for me about a month ago. He was extremely thorough, examining every inch of the home for possible problems. He alerted us to small things that had to be fixed as well as other issues that we may deal with in the future. By examining him in his work environment, it is clear that he is a professional in his field. I have no reservations recommending him for the services he provides".
I just had a very complete home inspection by HouseAbout Home Inspections. Even my bank's attorney commented on how thorough the inspection was. I would recommend this company to anyone needing a structural review for their home.
David was recommended to me through a friend and didn't disappoint. Very professional and did a very thorough inspection. If I need to have another home inspected in the future I will use him and have already recommended to others.
"Very professional! David made the whole precess simple and gave us lots of great information and recommendations. My husband and I are buying our first house and we had no idea what to expect. We have a number of other things to do in a short period of time and David took oneworry off of our plate. If you're like us, buying your first home have no idea who to call, you need to call HouseAbout Home Inspections"!

Thanks again for being so thorough. I'm really glad we found you!
Fabulous professional. On time, and took his time to inspect every detail and explain everything to us on our new home inspection. Took numerous photos. He was there nearly 3 hours and spent additional time on his own preparing a 40 page plus document outlining everything with pictures. Between his travel time, the time he was there and time spent preparing the report, I would say he spent at least 6 hours or more. Well worth the price paid. Thanks to Dave we were able to renegotiate to allow for the concerns that he found. I can't say enough about Dave. Highly recommend him, and wouldn't go anywhere else.
Laurie L. (Voorheesville, NY Townhouse Inspection)
HouseAbout Home Inspections came recommended to me by my real estate agent. And I have to admit, she nailed it.
David of HouseAbout Home Inspections was very professional. Since I was very new to the house buying and home inspection process, David spent the time to walk me through the process. He was able to work around my schedule and also interact very well with my real estate agent. The home inspection report was a thing of beauty! Lots of photographs, accessible online and very (very) detailed in its explanations and
If I ever need another home inspection in 12020 area, HouseAbout Home Inspections will be my first stop!
Mr. O'Keefe did a very thorough inspection of our new home prior to our purchase. He left no stone unturned. He was detailed in his assessment of the home, both during the inspection (to us and to the seller) as well as after the inspection, via the inspection report that he emailed us. He has also sent several follow-up emails containing good tips and best practices for repairs and preventive maintenance. I recommended Mr. O'Keefe to a coworker who also had a great experience with him. My real estate agent had a home inspector that she recommended, but we decided to use Mr. O'Keefe instead and our agent was so impressed, that she asked him for some business cards. I highly recommend Mr. O'Keefe if you are considering buying a home. He is very professional, efficient and detailed in his inspections.
Kenneth S. (Selkirk, NY Home Inspection)
I was very pleased with your services. I thought you were very thorough and not only would I use your services again but I would also recommend you to anyone that was looking to purchase a home. My sister, who is hard to please was also very pleased and commented on how thorough you are.
Kim (Albany, NY Home Inspection)
I wanted to thank you again for your outstanding service! I am very impressed with your attention to detail and grateful for your quick delivery of the report. I will not hesitate to recommend you to any future homebuyers that I encounter.
Eileen O. (Selkirk, NY Condominium Inspection)
I'll refer you to everyone I know, you did a great job for us. By the way, we're still looking for a place, so we'll give you a call when we find something.
Chris (Albany, NY Home Inspection)
Thank you again for your services. Carrie and I were both very pleased with your professionalism and appreciated the quick turn of the report. Making it available on-line is very
Dave F. (Guilderland, NY Condominium Inspection)
Thank you so much. Your report was fantastic. Dan and I thought it was the most thorough report we have ever seen. We greatly appreciate all of your time and energy on identifying issues with our new home. We will be speaking with the owners soon to see where to go from here. Thank you again for everything. We will be sure to recommend you to our future home-buying friends.
Erin R. (Albany, NY Home Inspection)
Got the report! Again, thank you for your time and professionalism. Dan was quite impressed with the time you spent inspecting the home. We appreciate your thoughts and recommendations. If we have any questions after we both read this report, we will be sure to give you a buzz.
(later the same day)
After reading this report, I personally wanted to thank-you again and will gladly refer your work to others in needing an inspection. Your photos helped understand the issues and will help in doing the upgrading and repairs needed. I have had inspections done on past homes and never had as thorough and detailed report.
Dawn K. (New Lebanon, NY Home Inspection)
David - Everything looked to be in order after your inspection. Certainly do appreciate that you reach out to the
homeowner and understand how stressful this can be.
Jill C., Home Seller (Delmar, NY Home Inspection)
Dave, Thank you very much. I read through the report you sent yesterday. It was excellent, very thorough and helpful. Thank you again.
Laurie M. (Rensselaer, NY TowneHouse Inspection)
The inspection was comprehensive and Dave does an excellent job explaining things during the inspection and the final report is thorough and timely. It is stressful enough
trying to purchase a home, but Dave provides piece of mind with a thorough and informative assessment of the property.
Chris C. (Albany, NY Home Inspection)
Thank you so much! You have been a great help to us. We will keep you in mind for future inspections for our family and friends. I will review everything that you have sent and I will email you if I have any questions. Again, we appreciate your thorough inspection and hope to work with you again.
Jaana N. (Niskayuna, NY Home Inspection)
I had David O'Keefe perform a pre-sale house inspection for me - on my current house which is up for sale. He was courteous and very knowledgeable. I definitely intend to use him to inspect my new home (when I make a purchase).
Lisa S. (Halfmoon, NY Seller Home Inspection)
Mr. O'Keefe was very professional and thorough when inspecting my current home, prior to me purchasing it. He spent several hours going over the entire house and was more than willing to answer
questions. His inspection report was just as thorough. My real estate agent was also impressed with Mr. O'Keefe's professionalism and attention to detail. I would definitely recommend him to anyone
in need of a home inspection.
Lisa D. (Schenectady, NY Home Inspection)
Mr O'Keefe preformed an inspection over an afternoon and was very professional and thorough during the evaluation. During the inspection he pointed out some of the more serious problems found and suggested corrective actions for each. He was also willing to spend time answering a few random questions about problems or questions that I had. Afterward he delivered a detailed report containing photos, discriptions, information and a list of corrective actions found during the inspection. Glad to say that as time past I am still using this report as a repair and review checklist.
I would have no reservations recommending David's service and a later date may even ask him to return and check all of the repair work.
Did a great job evaluating a commercial rental property in a strip mall. Prompt and professional. Gave me all the information I needed to determine whether the systems were working. Will use them again.
