Testimonials

“Darcy – I had been in the insurance business for 48 years! I’ve seen a lot of reports – inspections from many different companies! I must say after reading your report, you rank with the best! Thank you!”

William Redick, Clearview, ON

“Thanks, Darcy. You’ve restored my faith in home inspectors! Your knowledge, attention to detail and thoroughness have left me very comfortable with the purchase of this home! And I even got a honey-do-list out of the deal. I’ll be very comfortable recommending you to others who require services!”

A. Rannela, Collingwood, ON

“Our first home – purchased alone as a single mom for my teen children who had never grown up in their own home – was daunting. My real estate agent highly recommended Darcy MacLeod of Brick House Home Inspection Services. I was expecting a guy.

When I saw Darcy, outfitted in pressed tan pants and a crisp white shirt, I thought I had the wrong person. The next few hours she was under, over and through the house with a laser focus. She patiently, carefully and considerately advised me on things to be wary of, offered suggestions for the future maintenance of my new home to augment my investment and its resale value, and generously gave me a list of names for service providers she trusted. No question was a silly question, and she returned free of charge at a later date to ensure I was comfortable with a few concerns before the deal went through.

Truly passionate about both her clients and her exceptional quality of work, Darcy’s reputation is surely unparalleled. The 65-page detailed report with colour photos that she sent, highlighting areas of concern and summarizing essential factors (e.g., materials used), gave me the utmost confidence in my investment.

Brick House Home is the only inspection service you should consider if you want money well spent and peace of mind. Darcy’s not only the best-dressed home inspector by far… she’s a star!”

JF, Collingwood, ON

“We were absolutely delighted by the thoroughness of your home Inspection. The report was detailed but written in layman’s terms that were easy to understand. I would highly recommend your service to anyone needing a home inspection. Thanks so much. Now we can move into our new home with absolutely no worries.”

Gayle Flindall, Collingwood ON

“Very detail oriented, knowledgeable and experienced…exceptional service!

Noda Tsamardos, Collingwood ON

“It was wonderful to meet you yesterday. We want to thank you for the incredible job you did in inspecting our new home. Your attention to detail was amazing and we know, without a doubt, that there couldn’t possibly be one thing you missed. At the same time, we found it very interesting and informative and it was even kind of fun. Thanks again Darcy.”

Barrie and Gayle Wykes, The Blue Mountains ON

“Darcy, thank you very much for your home inspection services. We were absolutely impressed! Punctual, very personable. I don’t think there was a stone left unturned, you were so thorough. You made us feel comfortable and explained everything that you were doing and the reasons why these things were important. Thank you for taking the time after to talk with us, and again going over your findings. It is obvious you know your work. We really appreciate the report you sent to us. Again, very thorough! It gave us a chance to sit and go over everything again with the pictures and explanations so we could make an informed decision. Bright, lovely lady, such a pleasure meeting you. Will definitely recommend your services. Thanks”

Judy & Don Hitchings, Collingwood ON

“Darcy – It was a real pleasure meeting you to inspect our new home. I have had home inspections done in the past but none nearly as thorough and informative as you provided. What I valued most was that I was completely involved in the entire process. You and I walked and talked through every inspection point in a very orderly plan. I was very impressed with your knowledge of home construction and home systems and your obvious passion for providing quality service for your clients. Your written report was so clear in its description with the pictures of the deficiencies and improvement recommendations that it will add lasting value for home maintenance for years to come. Thanks again!”

Tom Crawford, Meaford ON

“You were prompt, personable, thorough, direct, and I loved your energy. I also really appreciated your openness to describing everything as you went and giving tips and advice. You made it much less overwhelming! Thank you.”

Virginia Zarifi, Collingwood ON

“I work for Royal LePage Trinity, and had clients in the past hire Darcy for their home inspection. I meet a lot of different home inspectors in my business and had only met very few that I personally really liked. I found they never took the time for attention to detail, but yet still explaining what they found in a professional manor. Once I worked with Darcy, I knew she would from then on be my “go to” home inspector. Shortly after using her with a client, my husband and I purchased our own home and it was no question at all to call Darcy. She is laid back, yet her attention to detail is fantastic. Everything she finds, she explains and makes it so it isn’t scary but manageable, unless it isn’t and she tells you straight up what she found and what is the next step. I felt extremely comfortable with Darcy, and would recommend her to any of my clients, friends or family. Not only is she great at her job, she continues to stay in touch and helps with advice for repairs, maintenance and fixing. No other inspector to hire but her. Thanks Darcy!”

Jenna Davis, Royal LePage Trinity Realty, Brokerage, Collingwood ON

“Thank you so much Darcy for your incredible service. You were so thorough and helpful to us as first time home buyers and made us aware of any potential problems along with many easy and cost saving solutions. We are very thankful that you were the one to inspect our first home and we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone!”

Robert Cooke and Kathryn Easson, Wasaga Beach ON

“Darcy, the report was very easy to read and made sense as you had explained most of it when we were with you at the inspection on Saturday. We would absolutely recommend you to anyone needing a home inspection. You were a pleasure to do business with.”

Sharri and Earl Contois, Wasaga Beach ON

“Darcy did a fantastic job inspecting our home. She was very thorough, explained each area, any findings and needed fixes as she went through the house. Darcy was friendly and personable, and made our home inspection both enjoyable and very informative. Her report was very detailed (including pictures) and was emailed to us before 5 p.m. as she had promised. I would not hesitate to recommend her – a true professional.”

Kelly D, Collingwood ON

“Dear Darcy, Thank you for all your assistance and excellent advice regarding the purchase of our new home in Thornbury. Your extremely thorough inspection and report allowed us to make informed decisions. Your additional follow up regarding a possible safety issue was greatly appreciated. We recommend your service to other future home buyers. Thank You.”

Penny and Jean Paul LeDez, Thornbury ON

“Darcy was referred to us by someone else who had used her services and we are so happy that we accepted the referral. Darcy was professional, knowledgeable and extremely efficient. She was happy to have us tag along and constantly explained what she was looking at and what her specific recommendations included. Her report was detailed, comprehensive and easy to follow up. Thank you Darcy for a job well done!”

Gale and Phillip Thomas, Collingwood ON

“Darcy from Brick House Inspection Services was not just our home inspector for a couple hours, she was a support to us throughout our whole home buying experience. She happily took our calls and gave us advice before, during, and after our purchase. During her home inspection, she was thorough, professional, and personable. Her knowledge and passion for her job made it clear to us that she would not miss a thing, and we have complete piece of mind about our new home. I will now go out of my way to recommend her to anyone I know buying a home. Thank you Darcy!”

Scott and Krista Lavender, Barrie ON

“Darcy was truly amazing, great personal touch with total professionalism. Everything was explained fully, all questions gladly answered and the entire experience was a pleasure. Makes me want to buy another house so I can use her services again!”

Scott Socol, Orangeville ON

“We were referred to Darcy Macleod at Brick House Home Inspection Services by our real estate sales representatives, Rob and Angiline Dubien of Royal LePage Locations North. We were not disappointed! I required an inspection to be completed with short notice and Darcy was able to accommodate us. Her assessment was thorough and when she had completed the inspection, she spent time with me to review the findings at a high level. In less than 24 hours, we had two thorough reports (one general summary and a detailed report on all her findings) that included succinct comments accompanied by photos with arrows describing her assessment. She was available after we read our report to answer questions and followed-up with us after that to inquire if we were satisfied with the report and if we required any further assistance. My husband and I are thrilled that we chose Darcy and her professionalism and personality is a pleasure to work with. Thank you Darcy…..we are so excited to move into our new home in Blue Mountain and confident that our house is safe for our family!”

Ann Heidebrecht and Larry Deighton, Toronto ON

“Darcy MacLeod, Owner of Brick House Home Inspection Services provided prompt service and a comprehensive inspection report of our new home. She missed nothing. Moreover, her offer of continuing post-report advice is invaluable. Darcy is a professional in every respect.”

David and Jacquie Sims, Collingwood ON

“We recently employed Brick House Home Inspection Services [Darcy Macleod] to report on a house my wife and I are purchasing. We were both very favorably impressed by the level of professionalism and attention to detail reflected in the comprehensive post-inspection written report [with photographs and explanations] that Darcy provided. Recommendations were specific and well documented. As an Information Technology director/manager for the past 33 years, I appreciate the degree of commitment that makes some stand out above others as Darcy does. My wife and I also valued the human touch that put good customer relations on a par with the inspection itself. We were invited to accompany Darcy during the inspection, and noted that the inspection was very thorough. We did not get the impression that the inspection was hurried, or that it followed a “cookie cutter” approach. I have no hesitation in recommending Brick House Home Inspection Services to anyone considering a real estate purchase, or looking for an unbiased report or recommendation on future maintenance items.”

Pat and Tamara Novak, Collingwood ON

“Darcy is professional, thorough and clearly passionate about her work as a home inspector. Darcy recently completed an inspection for us that covered all aspects of the house in real detail and her final report was clear and easy to understand. We really liked the use of the thermal imaging to reveal things we would never have known otherwise.”

Marg Scheben-Edey, Broker, Re/Max Four Seasons Realty Ltd, Brokerage and John Scheben-Edey

 

“Hello Darcy; I would like to thank you very much for giving us the confidence to remove the conditional offer clause on the home we just purchased in the Blue Mountains. You were able to present a very clean report that helped us make a positive decision on our next home. Thanks for making a stressful exercise so much fun! I would be happy to recommend you to anyone that will require a home inspection in the Collingwood area.”

Darrel May, Collingwood ON

“After hearing that some inspectors don’t give full value for service, we were especially pleased with Darcy’s outstanding level of service and professionalism. Darcy’s knowledge of her industry is current and comprehensive. She identified a few code deficiencies with the electrical system and offered solutions. Darcy quickly and thoroughly researched more obscure items to ensure they met with safety standards. She performed a full roof inspection and gave us timely and easily accessible feedback. It is clear that Darcy is passionate about her business and genuinely cares about her customers. We enthusiastically recommend her service.”

Linda Brydges & Raf Moore, Collingwood ON

“Darcy made the home inspection very easy for me. She was professional and made sure I was kept informed throughout the entire process. The report she prepared was extremely thorough which helped me to make a well informed purchasing decision here in Collingwood. I would recommend Brick House Home inspection Services to anyone that wants to make sure they are making a good investment in their property.”

Gerry Kinna, Sudbury, Ontario

“I found Darcy to be very knowledgeable and thorough. She took the time to explain everything to my client and made it quite understandable in layman’s terms. She also suggested resolutions for the issues she found. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Darcy, Owner of Brick House Home Inspection Services for any home inspection and will definitely recommend her to our buyers.”

Rob and Angiline Dubien, Sales Representatives, Royal LePage Locations North, Brokerage, Collingwood ON

“I am very pleased to write this testimonial on behalf of Darcy Macleod, Owner of Brick House Home Inspection Services. My real estate agent gave me a few names to choose from and, in the end, I was most impressed with Darcy’s professionalism and thoroughness. She made every effort to explain the steps that she was taking to ensure there would be no surprises should I proceed with buying the property; and that is most certainly the case. A follow-up checklist that Darcy provided after my purchase was most helpful in completing the exercise. Thanks so much for your expertise and guidance throughout this process and I hope that your business continues to flourish.”

Joanne Steele, Thornbury ON

“We hired Brick House Home Inspection Services for a Maintenance and Repair inspection on the home we live in. A very complete service – on time, courteous, meticulous, followed up with a detailed and complete report.”

Bev & Ernie Philp, The Blue Mountains ON

“I highly recommend Darcy MacLeod, Owner of Brick House Home Inspection Services for your next home inspection. The service I received was prompt and professional not only onsite but after the inspection had been completed. I’d like to mention about the summary report that was provided to us as well. It will be a great go-to document once we get into our new home and begin working on some of the minor items. The summary of minor repair items has been an ideal quick reference sheet and doubles as a shopping list.”

Susan G. Roy, CFP, CPA, CGA, Collingwood ON

“We hired Darcy MacLeod, Owner of Brick House Home Inspection Services for a New Home Inspection. We had some issues getting action from our builder to complete the project. Darcy provided us with an excellent inspection report that allowed us to go back to the builder to get action. Darcy was extremely thorough and professional and found a number of ‘code’ deficiencies that required immediate correction by the builder. We highly recommend Darcy and would use Brick House Home Inspection Services again.”
