Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because McAuley Land Surveying, Inc has been in business almost ten years. The owner has been in the surveying and site construction business for over 25 years. Small job are our specialty such as fence line surveys or residential survey maps showing boundary lines and all improvements on the property. This type of service is needed and required for most Homeowner Associations when making an addition to your property such as a fence or adding a pool to your property. Most of all the work that is performed at McAuley Land Survey, Inc is done by the owner who is the licensed professional land surveyor. You can be assured that when James shows up on your job that he brings with him over 25 years of not only surveying experience but also construction experience also. McAuley Land Surveying, Inc is the ONLY land surveying company in North Carolina that is licensed by the state of North Carolina to perform construction services also..

We describe our business as Well established

Review by in Charlotte, NC
Project: Survey Property
An overall disappointment, with emphasis on poor communication. They are prompt only when their dollar is on the line. The low price is not worth all the time wasted on follow-up. It was difficult to get in touch with them, but after that they were quick and helpful in getting me a price quote. Once awarded the job, they fit me promptly into their schedule. Every step after that was an exercise in patience. 1)The team did not come the day I was told to expect them. I was not informed of the change. No one answered any of my follow-up calls or emails throughout the day. 2) The team came a different day, again without communication. I only knew when I arrived home and saw stakes on the lawn. Since I was not present, I was not able to receive a walkthrough and explanation of the property lines. An additional trip out for that costs $100. 3) By the time I got home, FIVE of the EIGHT stakes had fallen, and the back half of the property had not been staked at all, though there was some litter left behind. 4) I called the office and was told a team would be sent to fix the stakes and a surveyor would be in touch to answer my questions. Stacy was very polite and apologetic, though she also did not seem sure what had happened. Though the stakes were fixed, over a week later I still had not heard back from a surveyor. 5) I got the invoice at noon the day it was due and a past-due notice the day after. I had still not spoken to or seen a surveyor at any point. 6) I finally got in touch with the office manager. I was mostly unbothered about the whole thing until I talked to her, but she was incredibly unpleasant to speak with. She was impatient, short, and downright rude. She did put me in touch with their Field Crew Chief. He was friendly and did his best to answer my questions about some ribbons placed on my neighbor s property, but I am not sure he knew what I was talking about. I do not think he had ever been to the property. I got another invoice less than an hour later. Since the whole process had been a mess, I asked for a discount on the job. ONLY THEN could they be bothered to tell me that the no-show appointment and the confusingly half-done job had been canceled due to rain. The rude office manager informed me that I had been notified of this fact, but there was nothing in my call logs, texts, or emails. I said so, and she said they would look through their records and get back to me. Her final response lacked any further mention --much less proof-- of communication about rain. It simply said that she was certain her team had followed protocol and that she would *not waste any more time discussing a non-issue.* She reminded me --again-- about the outstanding invoice. Bad weather? I get it. Schedule changes? It happens. But any company that considers customer service a *waste of time* or thinks that failing to show up to appointments or communicate with clients is a --non-issue--; Unacceptable. I was patient and polite for free. The least they could do is scrounge up some courtesy (that the are getting paid for!) when I am the one who wasted hours of my time trying to get them to pick up the phone. And? The map that I paid hundreds of dollars for? It had mistakes. If you are looking for a surveyor, keep looking. James McAuley clearly has more business than he can keep up with.

Review by Alejandro R.
Project: Survey Property
I contacted James to do a survey on my house he was paid to come and do his job and he ended up only doing half the job. I tried to get in contact with him but he will not answer calls, text messages, emails nothing. I have even gone to the addresses listed on the page and they aren’t his. One is a ups store. If someone knows this man let me know how to get in contact with him. Thank you

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
