Customer Testimonials

“I have used Bob Petersen for over 20 years and will continue to refer him to my customers. I know I can trust Bob to use his years of expertise to give buyers a good understanding of what they are buying. He gives reasonable and practical explanations of the issues and the remedies. He also gives buyers good suggestions on routine maintenance of their new home.”

— Diane Kennedy, ABR,CRS (Coldwell Banker United)

“Precision Inspection lives up to its name. My wife and I retained Bob Petersen twice as we looked for a new home. His careful reports helped us decide when to pass and when to proceed. Thanks to Bob Petersen we backed away from one place that needed a lot of work. When it came time to consider another potential home, Bob reinforced our positive impression. He also brought a few important items to our attention. Now we are proceeding eyes wide open. When an inspection has required additional consultation, Bob has directed us to the most professional handymen, plumbers, and a/c technicians in Austin.”

— Jason Brownlee (Political Science Professor, UT Austin)

“Bob Petersen is far and away the best inspector I have worked with. His attention to detail is matched by his professional demeanor. While many inspectors address only the items dictated by the State, Bob will go the extra mile to offer helpful suggestions to my clients in easy to understand terms….which my clients appreciate.”

— Luke Graves (Broker, Luke Graves Realty)

“Bob is the most professional and knowledgeable inspector that I have worked with in my 13 years in real estate. He tells it straight in a way that even the most inexperienced buyers can understand. He is the only inspector I’ll use for my personal real estate transactions.”

— Steve Addamo (Addamo Realty Services)

“Best experience I have had working with anyone on my homes during my seven years in Austin. The five stars comes from repeated, outstanding experience with Precision Inspection. The work is professional and the reports are clear, with digital photos of problem areas… Whether you are selling or buying – or you just want strategic advice on home maintenance and improvement – Precision Inspection will provide superior guidance. Highly recommended.”

— Jason B (Raleigh, NC)

“Bob was great. He recently inspected a home I’m thinking about purchasing and he did a wonderful job of explaining the process, identifying issues and helping me understand the severity. Definitely recommend Precision Inspection for anyone looking to buy a new home.”

— Joshua S (Austin, TX)

“Recently had to schedule an inspection at the last minute right before the end of the year. Bob was punctual, professional, and full of precise photos pointing out flaws in the home. He was very thorough (practically proctological) and patient with his explanations, and gave innumerable suggestions about preventive measures to help me enjoy the home for years. Here's the best part. I received the report the same day as the inspection, and I really needed it to allow me to close. I hope he is enjoying New Year’s because he graciously allowed me to encroach on Christmas. This guy is unbelievably thorough. You will know what you are buying.”

— David P (Austin, TX)

“Precision Inspection was a valuable asset to me in my Austin relocation and home purchase. Bob was responsive and instructive throughout the entire process. His report was so detailed that I was able to use it with contractors to schedule and assess the work effort. This piece was invaluable in being able to assess an accurate value of the home and the ensuing repair costs. I would recommend and use his services again and again.”

— Sherry R. (Austin, TX)

“I have nothing but high marks for Bob Petersen and Precision Inspection. He is on my recommended list I make available to all by clients. I have also used him for my own personal home inspections. He is trustworthy, knowledgeable and always prompt for his appointments. He is reliable, dependable and very professional.”

— Joany P (Austin, TX)

“Bob Peterson, at Precision Inspection, has been the Austin Silent Market Group preferred property inspector for over twenty years. And we market many homes that could use some TLC. Rather than simply scaring our clients with all the home’s glaring issues, Bob communicates, in no nonsense terms. Bob makes sure the client understands that the repairs needed are usually reasonable and not too uncommon for the age of similar homes. If on the other hand, major issues emerge, Bob is the first to point out the concerns. And that is the information we want our clients to hear. Keep up the great work, Bob.”

— George Sears McGee (Austin, TX)

“Precision Inspection conducted two home inspections for me. Both were professional and thorough. The first inspection uncovered enough to keep me from buying the property. The second inspection scored me a new roof from the seller’s insurance company when Bob found hail damage. Extremely satisfied, the report is easy to read and replete with pictures showing examples of his findings. I definitely recommend Precision Inspection and will use them again myself.”

— Wynne H (Austin, TX)

“I recently had an inspection done by Bob Peterson (Precision Inspection)on recommendation of our realtor. Bob was very thorough, professional and extremely knowledgeable. He gave us some money saving tips on improvements to the property we are planning that will more than pay for his inspection fee. I will definitely use Bob on future property purchases.”

— Mike H (Dallas, TX)

“Our realtor recommended Bob Petersen for an inspection on an investment house. We liked his service so much we had him inspect another house for us as well. He was on time, thorough, and very knowledgeable. He answered all our questions and offered some great advice on being a land lord. His list of recommendations for service providers was very helpful. Every person we used from his list provided quality service.”

— Sheryl S (Austin, TX)

“Bob, thank you for your time today. Taking the time to show me the little things that you did, was so nice and appreciated. Those little things may seem small now too you, but not to me. I'm extremely impressed with your knowledge and customer service. I thrive to bring the same service to my profession. You were fast, efficient, and most of all very professional. Let me know if there is anyone I can brag to about your customer relations and great service. My wife, realtor, and I greatly appreciate it. ”
