I am a real estate broker. Ed has completed well over 50+ inspections with my buyer clients. He gets the most positive feedback from my buyers and they have the utmost respect for him and his work. I trust Ed's judgment. He got certified way before certification was required. Even if you are not buying a house you should use him at least every now and then to give you a good inspection of your house to help you in your knowledge of your home and what you should be paying attention to your home maintenance! I highly recommend him!

Ed was incredibly helpful and very knowledgeable throughout the home inspection process. He was very thorough and really took the time to explain every detail of what he was including in his report. The full pdf report that he sent to me (within just a few hours!) was very thorough with photos and detailed notes. It helped form a clearer picture for me in terms of what potential maintenance I could expect in the future and also helped me prioritize these things for my budget. I'd recommend Ed to anyone! He was easy to work with, prompt and detail-oriented. Thanks, Ed!

- Allison H.

Ed did a great job inspecting our 1st ever home. I found him through a google search. We contacted some of the big companies to do our home inspection and never heard back. I emailed Ed and got a response back within the hour! I'm happy to support a local business. The price was great and the inspection report was detailed. I recommend Ed to first time home buyers because he walked my husband through the house and was informative.

- Katie M.

I am a RE/MAX Realtor who recommends Forté Home Inspections frequently to my buyer and seller clients. I have received very positive feedback from clients on his thoroughness, ability to answer their questions and his detailed report with photos. Ed additionally makes him self available to answer any questions I or my clients have after the inspection has occurred. Highly recommend.

- Connie W.

I had a fantastic experience with Ed. Along with inspecting every inch of the house, he also suspected some major issues with plumbing and went the extra mile to call co-workers and plumbing companies regarding the potential issues. Due to Ed’s concerns, we brought a plumber out a few days later and Ed was RIGHT. I’m looking forward to working with Ed again on our future house!

- Noah S.

Ed just inspected a home for one of my clients. I immediately got a text from him introducing himself when he was asked to do the inspection. He also sent a follow-up email the day after the inspection and was very helpful. Also, a very personal guy. A+ experience!

- Christian C.

We had an amazing experience with Forte Home Inspection! As first time home buyers, Ed went above and beyond, being overly thorough and making sure we felt comfortable with everything he was speaking to. We would never buy a home without an inspection from Ed, could not recommend him enough.

- Nathan H.

As first time home buyers, we really appreciated Ed's thorough inspection. The PDF was very, very detailed. It helped us understand our home better. Thanks, Ed!

-Michelle N.

We asked Ed to complete a home inspection for a house we are under contract with. Extremely professional service even when we needed to reschedule. He was very knowledgeable about many things within the home that was inspected and explained things so they were easy to understand. Definitely have Ed inspect your home or your future home!

- Rebecca D.

We're out-of-towners looking for homes in the Delaware area and when we found one, I contacted Ed at Forte to complete the inspection for us. I was a little nervous not being able to be present for the inspection, but once I received my report all worries went away. Ed did an extremely thorough job in his inspection, complete with annotated pictures and explanations of everything he found weather it was acceptable or not. Not only that but he also spend a good deal on time on the phone with me afterwards explaining everything he saw during his inspection. No matter if you reside locally or remotely from the Delaware area, Ed is your guy for home inspection. Thanks Ed!

- S C.

We just recently hired Ed and were really happy with the results! He has a very solid background for his job, which doesn't seem to be a requirement in Ohio, and is really informative as he takes you through your new home to discuss his findings and suggestions. We couldn't be more pleased and highly suggest him. And he's a really nice guy, which helps!
