Review by in Short Hills, NJ
A trusted friend highly recommended John, and that was the reason we first met. I had a crisis in residential project which required both architectural and structural helps. Couple of architects I talked didn't want to take it or simply charged huge amount money which could kill the project, and they don't have all the skills. Without any hesitation, John jumped into the project, and he save my project. He is a solid strategic thinker and truly a rare breed: exceptional licensed experience in BOTH architecture AND structure; entrepreneurship which always put customer's interests as first priority. On top of that, he's extremely creative. He always on top of things and really willing to go the extra mile to make customers success.

John went above and beyond for us. He prepared plans for a co-op remodel and he was professional, and knowledgeable. He had the plans ready in about a week, which had us moving forward with the project quickly. Service was excellent. Could not have been happier!!

Review by in Cortland, OH
Project: Inspect a Home
We had home inspection completed by Residential Realities Professional Engineer, John in Sept 2016. The entire process from initial contact, coordinating an inspection date between us (the buyers) and the sellers, completing the inspection, follow-up conversations summarizing findings with both parties, and report completion took less than a week! John was professional, thorough, knowledgable and able to explain each bit of the inspection with ease. We accompanied him during the inspection (Approx 2hrs) and he addressed each concern we had and provided practical suggestions for any issues discovered. His report was well written and addressed immediate concerns, and those that would need to be addressed in the future. Both the inspection and the report exceeded our expectations for what we expected for a general home inspection. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Excellent, excellent service.

John is truly amazing. I was in a really tough situation related to my home where we found some major foundation issues during our final walk through. The sellers were being difficult and wouldn't even let us into the property. John was simply exceptional - he offered to look at pictures we had and asked a lot of questions to give us an informed view of what he though the problem might be. He spent close to an hour talking on the phone and answering all my questions. Best of all, at the end, he didn't take any payment for his advice as it was on the phone. Truly a very nice guy that wants to do good by you. I would hire him in a heartbeat.

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.
