“David and Tommy were awesome! They were both extremely polite and professional. As first time home buyers we really were not sure what to expect from the inspection process, but they took the time to explain everything to us and made us feel comfortable.

They allowed us to walk around the property with them so that we could see everything they were inspecting.

They were very thorough and took a lot of pictures so that everything would be properly documented. These guys were trustworthy, honest, knowledgeable and reliable. They answered any questions that I had and I truly believe that their inspection revealed a lot that prevented me from making a costly mistake!

I will highly recommend them to anyone I know who is purchasing a home in the Nashville or Knoxville areas. A++++”

“Tommy was very prompt and courteous. He did a very thorough inspection and allowed my husband to follow along with him and ask questions which he was more than happy to answer. He also gave us his number for any future questions and we were able to contact for referrals for some other things we needed to have reviewed on the house. We would definitely use this company again!”

“Tommy Kirby rocks. He has worked for us a couple of other times and is always on time, honest, friendly, and knows his stuff. He goes out of his way to be helpful. I highly recommend him!”

“1st (Choice) Home Inspections completed our home inspection. He provided excellent customer service, in that the property was a condo that had to be inspected twice. David provided all services at no extra charge.

He also provided us, on the same day, with a digital email report of the inspection, complete with pictures and recommendations. He was thorough, professional, and very knowledgeable.

I would recommend him again to anyone! I’ve dealt with many home inspectors as a former RE Broker, and in my opinion, David Trent stands above the crowd in all his services.”

Carrie F.

“Tommy was early to arrive and completed the inspection even though there was bad inclement weather. He was very thorough, was very patient, and detailed in the report. He was honest and professional.”

Matthew M.

“Professional, friendly, thorough and honest! Would highly recommend to anyone in need of a home inspection.”

Rachel T.

“Not only did he complete a thorough inspection, he provided clear and concise information on what he was checking for and what was found during the inspection. Tommy Kirby was very thorough and professional as well personable. We will be using his service in the near future.”

“Tommy, I would like to thank you for the inspection that you did on the Edenbridge house. You did a good job on finding the little things. You are an awesome guy. You protect others from unseen dangers with their potential homes. I will highly recommend you to others that I know need a great home inspector. Once again, thanks.”

“I called to perform inspection on commercial property looking to buy. Very thorough in his inspection and produced professional report. Very competitive on price.”

Harold W.

“Provided an in depth and very detailed home inspection for my first home purchase. I was there throughout the inspection where he pointed out certain things to look for and things that could become issues in the future.

The inspector was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout this process, which until then was new to me.

The inspector was there waiting in the truck when I arrived which was great (I hate waiting). He introduced himself and explained the home inspection process in detail before beginning.

During the inspection he pointed out things that were good and bad and gave reasons for everything he was doing during the inspection.

At the end explained the findings in detail and informed me that he would email me the final report when he was finished with the other inspections he had for the day.

After the inspection I ran a couple of errands, and to my surprise when I got home he had already emailed me the report.

I highly recommend any individual who is looking for a home inspector that is knowledgeable, courteous, and very professional to use 1st Choice Home Inspection for their home inspection needs.”

Jake M.

“Home inspection completed. We actually had 3 inspections from this company in a 3 month period; 2 contracts fell through on houses we intended to buy due to contingency issues.

Tommy Kirby did all of the inspections. He was very knowledgeable, nice, pleasant, easy to talk to, and was able to answer all of our questions. He was also able to give advice on repairs and estimated costs.

All inspections went well. We arrived about an hour after Tommy had started. He finished up while we looked around and asked questions, then he went through everything he found and showed pictures of what he was referring to.

He sent the inspection report, which was very in-depth but easy to understand, within 24 hours.”

Donna K.

“Hey Tommy, Thanks for such a detailed inspection. You provided us with things we did not and probably would not have seen. Just wanted to send a reply and say thanks. We will be recommending you for anyone else that may ever need a home inspection. Thanks again.”

“…thanks for your time on the telephone addressing my questions and concerns. I will not hesitate to recommend your company to other potential home buyers.”

John S., Attorney at Law

“Tommy Kirby inspected a home we were preparing to purchase. He did a wonderful job explaining everything about the home and the report was insightful. I would hire Tommy again without a doubt.

Tommy was recommended by a mutual friend who arranged the inspection for us. My wife and I arrived at the property near the end of his inspection. Tommy went over his findings verbally and with a written report. We stood in the garage of the home talking for quite some time. He was very professional.”
