Michael's Testimonials

We’ve used Mike Baltrush’s services many times over the last few years on multiple properties (investments and homes) and we keep going back because he does such a great job. He’s always early and very professional, and can even dumb down some of the technical “stuff” so that we can all understand.

R. Marx Wayne, PA

Mike Baltrush was AMAZING! Taught us so many things first-time homebuyers should know! We highly recommend Mike B!

T. Piergrossi Philadelphia, PA

We had a great experience with our home inspection and Mike Baltrush. Even though we didn’t end up following through with the home, the inspection taught us a lot in terms of what to look out for in the future. Mike was very patient, thorough, and descriptive as we all went through the house together. We ended up using ValueGuard and Mike for our 2nd try and the experience was just as great the 2nd time around!

A. Mishoe Philadelphia, PA

Mike Baltrush was very impressive… even to my husband who is an engineer. He was punctual, professional and knowledgeable. Mike explained everything he was doing and what he was looking for. Mike spent a lot of time with us and answered all our questions and concerns. He pointed out many items we had missed. We feel he did a thorough job and are completely satisfied with the results. In addition, we had our report in hand first thing Monday morning. Our inspection was Saturday afternoon. We would highly recommend Mike and would definitely use him again.

A. Beilecky Phoenixville, PA

Mike was courteous and thorough. He communicated clearly and answered my questions about how we might correct some of the defects we discovered in the home.

T. Geiger Glenside, PA

Mike Baltrush at ValueGuard was excellent. Very comprehensive and communicative. Also available after the inspection to answer questions. Additionally, ValueGuard reports provide cost estimates which can be very useful and are not included in all inspection reports. Would highly recommend.
