"Thanks for a very thorough inspection and a detailed report that I would not have imagined.  It would be my pleasure to refer you to other villagers." Harvey and Beverly Fixler

"Just had our 1-year home inspection by Harwood Inspection Services (Brian Harwood: 352-638-6288) and could not have been happier.  I am sure there are many excellent, qualified inspection services in The Villages, but I can't see how Brian Harwood could be topped.  Brian spent 4 1/2 hours inspecting our house and came up with a comprehensive "punch list" which he submitted to The Villages Warranty Dept. on our behalf the same day as the inspection.  He took hundreds of photos and documented some major flaws (roof and attic insulation) as well as minor finishing detals only a seasoned expert who know what they were looking for would find.  In addition to the document sent to the Warranty Department, Brian also sent us a 102 page document not only detailing every shingle flaw, but also how to maintain our home!  I only regret that I did not have Brian inspect the home when we first purchased the home.  Should you chose Brian before your 1 year is up, I suggest you plan ahead as his services are in high demand and he may book a few weeks out."  Mark and Kate Carey


"Good morning Brian, Don and I would like to thank you so much for your diligence in conducting our 1 year inspection. You arrived early, mindful that we have inside cats when opening doors. You have an easy personality, ready to answer questions and I was amazed at how thorough you were. The reports were way above anything we were expecting. If any potential client asks to talk to a client of yours before contracting you, we would be more than happy to speak to them.  Again Thank You.  Kind regards." Don and Julie Crayne

"Thank you so much for the incredible inspection! I appreciated you taking your time and being so patient while answering questions and explaining everything to us.  You are amazing!" Annie Seigworth and and Jacob Whitehead

"Hi, Brian, It was a pleasure to meet you. Thank you for the report and helpful home maintenance tips, which we will be sure to follow.  We were already impressed with your attention to detail during the inspection of our home. Now that we've seen your final report we are even more impressed! You obviously enjoy what you do and take great pride in your work. We are so happy we chose you to do our inspection and will most definitely recommend you to others any chance we get.  Best regards." Bill and Bonnie Brooks

"Brian, it was a pleasure doing business with you, thanks for you thorough and detailed  report.  I've gone over it a couple of times and will print out a hard copy for myself to make it easier to for me to focus on the recommended repairs. I would happily recommend you to others when needed.  Thanks again,  Dave Deck"
