"I use Jim Mello and have been using his services for at least 15+ years because I trust him. I trust his evaluation of the existing condition. I trust his suggestion to repair issues giving clients all their options. I always believed he says and does what's best for the client and stands by his work. I love working with him and referring him to all our agents and clients."

"Here is why I've been using him for about 10 years to investigate homes for me... he has consistently shown the following:1.  Straight forward communication:  Jim is easy to understand when he is explaining the drainage and foundation conditions that he's been asked to evaluate.  His tone is friendly and non-alarmist.  It's clear that he knows what he is talking about.2. Fair bids:  When Jim bids a job, he is fair minded, and it is evident that he is NOT out to gouge clients.  His written reports and bids are easy to read, and they make sense.3.Professional:  Jim is on time, prepared and professional.  I know that I can count on him."

"Jim is on my (very) short list of trusted structural and drainage inspectors/experts to call during buyer inspections as well as for post close of escrow work, if any. He consistently provides excellent customer service and is a pleasure to work with. He is great at explaining structural and drainage challenges to prospective buyers and helping them understand the various repair options, if any are needed. He is one of the best!"

"I use Jim because I love him!!  We go back a very long time and I’ve found Jim to always be so pleasant, to be so calm, to not be an alarmist and to be fair.  He has an amazing ability to present his findings to both sides and have both clients trust his recommendations and trust that he is not just looking for work.  Jim is honest!!"

Need any other adjectives??  Jim is the BEST!!
