“Tim is fantastic. Provided an inspection of an old 4-story townhouse, from top to bottom. Very knowledgable, pleasant and easy to work with. After the inspection, the report came back only days later, and he was always available for follow-ups. I highly recommend him.”

“Great experience with Tim. He provided an inspection for a property we are considering buying and I was impressed with his knowledgeability of old brownstones and his detail orientation.”

“Tim was great! He was thorough, patient, and did a great job describing everything to my wife and I who are first time home-buyers. We are purchasing a condo in Park Slope and Tim not only looked through the entire apartment, but also the facade of the building and the common spaces. He let us know of potential issues and gave us advice on how to fix them. I would highly recommend Tim for anyone looking to purchase a home.”

“Tim provided the home inspection for a Brooklyn townhouse. He was easy to work and regularly made himself available. He inspected the townhouse inside and out and from top to bottom, pointing out "deal killer"-type issues and smaller issues, and deftly explaining means to mitigate. We soon had a report in hand. And that's where things got interesting. The seller's inspector challenged one of the more significant findings. Tim and their inspector met to examine the issues, and we were quite glad to have Tim with us. By the end, it was clear that an issue Tim had identified needed resolution and their inspector agreed. Tim's practical approach and problem solving proved very valuable. Highly recommend!”

“What a fantastic experience!! Tim from Safe Haven inspected a brownstone we were going to purchase. Not only was he on time, but professional, incredibly smart about old homes and just a general pleasure to work with. If you have any questions at all, he is wonderful about answering them and giving recommendations along the way. As this is the most major purchase we will ever make, I feel so secure in knowing that it was looked at so thoroughly. Highly recommended!”

“I used Tim to inspect our condo in Brooklyn and he was great. He thoroughly inspected every nook and cranny of our unit including all the meters and mains in the basement, the A/C unit on the roof, the roof itself and the exterior walls of the building. He tested every wall socket, every light fixture, every faucet, the toilets, the floors etc. I followed him while he did this and he patiently answered every (naive) question I asked. Throughout the process of buying our condo Tim was the only person who was 100% completely honest.
After buying the condo we later used Tim to answer more questions about the building. Again, he patiently answered every question we had with a considerable knowledge and expertise. I would definitely use him again and I would definitely recommend him to others.”

“Tim at Safe Haven did an excellent job on our condo inspection. With short notice, he was the first one on site already identifying issues. He was courteous, professional, and thorough, something of a rarity in my experience. His inspection report was clear and he additionally offered his expertise as an experienced contractor that worked in the city for decades. I would recommend him to anybody who needs an inspection.”

“Tim, owner and inspector, is amazing. I've used him twice, as has my sister. He's extremely thorough, providing tips along the way to ensure that you'll know how to maintain your new home, and leaves no stone unturned in his inspection. His write up is hugely useful, and he's extremely generous with his time in answering follow up questions. He gets my highest recommendation!”
