As first home buyers who had just moved to Ballarat and knew nothing about the local area, we were thrilled to find Rick! From the first time we called him just to check the rates he charged for housing inspecions he was a weath of knowledge and incredibly helpful and professional. Rick came along to many open houses and gave us initial "walk through" information on the houses, as well as sales data. This information was invaluable when looking at purchasing a house as it gave us a very good initial picture and allowed us to make informed decisions about each property.
Once we found our perfect home Rick completed an incredibly detailed report on the property including photos of the bits we couldn't see (like inside the roof and under the house!). Once we received the report he also followed up with a phone call to discuss the details contained in his report and allow us to ask as many questions are we liked.
We found Rick to have an amazing knowledge of the local area, housing and building, all of which he was very happy to share with us. We can't thank Rick enough for all his help in purchasing our first home, he turned what could have been a very stressful experience into an incredibly exciting and positive one.
Now whenever we meet people who are buying a house in the area the first thing we say is "you have to call Rick!".

To Elim Property Inspections,
We wanted to pass on our gratitude to you for providing such a thorough and comprehensive property inspection for our recent house purchase in Ballarat. Eventhough the property was less than 5 years old, your inspection susequently showed several areas requiring attention. By having the report to take back to the Vendor, we were able to highlight these areas that needed repair prior to settlement date which has saved us thousands of dollars in the long term.
We found Rick to be completely professional and incredibly approachable when we had any questions or need to discus the Property Report. Every query and request was followed up in a timely manner and we are incredibly thankful that we employed Elim Property Inspections' services!
We will most certainly use Elim Property Inspections for any property purchases in the future.

Dear Elim Property Inspections,
Just a small note to say a HUGE thank you for the property inspections that
you have done for me recently. They were very thorough and professional,
and I have been thrilled with the quality of the report which you sent me
on each house.
I would highly recommend your service to anyone purchasing a property.
Thanks & Kind Regards
"For first time buyers, and out-of-town buyers at that, our
pre-purchase inspection was the smoothest part of the whole house-buying
process. With just a phone call, Rick was able to organise the property
inspection through the agent, complete the inspection and email through
the report - all within 24 hours. Rick's knowledge of the Ballarat
area, comprehensive assessment of all the property's features, flaws and
potential combined with his willingness to discuss the report at length
was invaluable. It gave us a definite advantage in the negotiation
process. I highly recommend Elim Property Inspections."

Further to our conversation on Saturday I just wanted to again thank
you for the inspection report for our house purchase. As first time
buyers, you have put our minds at ease and we particularly like the
fact that we do not have to climb up into the roof space with the
spiders to see the issues with the heating!

Rick was friendly, honest, thorough and professional. I received a
comprehensive report with photos and phone summary. I have used Elim Property for four houses and will continue to call on Rick for future
investment properties. I recommend Elim Property to anyone who wants a
thorough and friendly house inspection. Thanks.
