Mitch completed our home inspection back in 2020, and provided a comprehensive list of recommended repairs. We completed the urgent list of repairs prior to close. Being new to the area, I didn't have any contacts for contractors, plumbers, etc that could tackle the rest of the recommendations. Mitch graciously provided me a complete list of vendors and explained to me the details of each recommendation. It's been 3 years, and Ive been tackling projects on the list. In fact, I still refer to and use his list of recommended vendors all the time! Mitch went above and beyond and I'm grateful for his patience and support during the transition. Highly recommend!

Mitch was very thorough and informative. He was on time and friendly. Helped us understand everything we were looking at. Made sure we were informed about everything that needs work. We got the results back very quickly. He was a pleasure to work with.

Mitchell Home Inspections assisted me with the purchase of a home in November 2022. The inspector had some valuable findings and we were pleased with his expertise and ability to explain his observations. Their documentation was thorough with well-organized supporting imagery and the sellers accepted all requested repairs without resistance. We had a very positive experience working with Mitchell Home Inspections and would gladly use them again!

Mitchell Home Inspections provided the most thorough home inspection I've ever had. Nothing went unnoticed. We followed the guys around for much of the inspection, and they took time to explain what they were looking at and why the items they noted as being in need of attention were important. I sure learned a lot about how a boiler and heating system work — especially vital when looking to buy an older house! The inspection report, which we received within a day, was super-organized and included photos with arrows and recommendations we really need. We could not be more pleased with the service and depth of knowledge shown during the entire inspection. Mitch, Jim, and Nick are awesome. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mitchell Home Inspections to anyone I know.
--- Nichols S., January 2022
Very thorough inspection by Mitch and Nick. Both took the time to explain everything they noticed as they inspected. Received the report the next day with many details and photos. Great team and amazing work! Highly recommend.

Our family has been looking for a house to buy this fall. After using a not-so-great home inspector, we knew we needed a second opinion. So we did our research and found Mitch's company based on his team's experience and credentials, particularly in electrical and general construction. Cliff is professional and did a great job on our first inspection (a 70s rancher), so we hired him again for a second (an 80s rancher). His inspections were thorough, detailed, and easy to understand. We learned a lot that our other inspector missed, ranging from safety hazards to longer-term issues. Both Mitch and Cliff are knowledgeable and took the time to answer all of our questions -- and I'm very detail oriented. We will be able to use the inspection report to organize our repairs and improvements. Highly recommended!

Mitch and Nick were phenomenal! I seriously cannot sing their praises enough. They showed up to the property early and got straight to work. They were incredibly thorough and efficient. They answered all of our questions and were incredibly kind and I felt like they definitely had our best interest in mind. Buying a new home is really stressful and it helps to work with great people through the process. They truly left no stone unturned and I will be using them again in the future! Thank you both so much!
--- Mike H., August 2021
The inspection went very well. The inspector (Cliff) arrived a few minutes early. Started in the exterior & carried on. Clear explanations were offered on every system or point of inspection. The attention to detail was obvious and very much appreciated. The inspector's demeanor was professional, responsive and friendly. Finally, the report was delivered when promised (early the next morning). Clearly someone had to work on it on Friday evening. I am very happy with every aspect of the service. Thank you Cliff.
--- Michele N., June 2021
Great!! Mitch, Jim and Cliff are the inspectors and all are very professional and thorough with the home inspections. I have been using Mitchell Home Inspections for about five years and have used their services in Anne Arundel, Howard, Baltimore County and Baltimore City. They are always immediate in their response to scheduling and give great reports that are easy for the buyers to understand. Buyers are always pleased with their services!

Jim Mullins did the home inspection for my condo back in September 2020. I’m ashamed to say that I did not get around to posting a review even though he did a good job. Fast forward 8 or 9 months to June 2021 when I having water intrusion during heavy rain. Having difficulty getting straight answers as regards to the cause, I remembered Mitch's offer to contact him with follow up contractor questions at the time of my home inspection. I reached out to him, he was very helpful over the phone and offered to send Jim out the following day. Jim was very thorough in point outing and explaining the issue. He took pictures and offered to write up a report to send to my condo association without me asking for it and for no additional charge! I would definitely recommend and/or use this business again!
--- Virginia I., April 2021
Cannot say enough wonderful things about Mitch and his assistant Nick. Scheduling the inspection with the Seller was difficult, but Mitch was always accommodating. When the actual inspection was scheduled, Mitch and Nick were on time and incredibly professional and thorough. Nick willing climbed through the mist disgusting crawl spaces. They answered questions and pointed out issues while we there and then turned around a complete (72 page!) report with no boilerplate and full pictures in less than 24 hours. I have been a real estate attorney for 30 years, so I have seen a number of inspection reports, but never one so completely and pointedly prepared and explained as this one was. Also just really pleasant and nice people. Highly recommend using Mitchell Home Inspections.

1. Pre-Drywall Inspection
2. New Build Final Inspection
If you are building a new home, your builder will always say that an outside inspector is not required because they have county inspectors and their own internal inspections. Besides, its a new home right? Why would you need to inspect something that is new? While that may be true, I found the inspections provided by Mitchell pay for themselves by identifying issues and artifacts that I would have otherwise not identified. In addition, the inspection report is thorough and provides photos of the nameplates of all your appliances so that you can easily reference them when they need to be serviced. They also include tips specific to the upkeep of your home that many new home owners may not know. Its true that if you shop around you can find people that will do this type of thing on the cheap... but you will get what you pay for (I have seen this first hand). And when making such a huge investment into a new home, you do not want to take shortcuts. I put my trust in Mitchell and it has paid off.
--- Mary C., September 2019
I think this was the best and most thorough home inspection I have ever had. Mitch and Jim took their time and the report was extremely detailed. I have already recommended them to neighbors and family. Their suggestions were incredibly helpful and I would definitely hire them again I a writing this review a bit late. We did our home inspection in March but I pulled up their report to address something they identified and realized I forgot to put up a review.
--- Michael G., May 2019
Mitch, the owner, did the inspection himself. I can't even begin to heap enough praise upon him. He is very professional, personable, friendly, and amazingly thorough. He was recommended to me by a friend who does high-end home construction. Mitch arrived early and spoke with the sellers, before they left, and asked about any hidden things he'd be likely to find. He took 3.5 hrs to cover every inch of the 2800 sq feet, from the top of the chimney to the far corner of the crawl space. He'd have taken longer, only because of his thoroughness, but the sellers were getting antsy about returning home. Our property is on well and septic. Mitch subcontracts the septic tank inspection, and the company he uses also deserves 5-stars. In addition to the home inspection, Mitch inspected our chimney, wood burning stove, well pressure flow, and did a pest inspection. He can also perform a radon test (we did not need) and a water quality test, on our well water (subbed to the same company that does the septic inspection). I followed Mitch everywhere, except for the roof and part on an unfloored attic. He was quick to point out things I can easily take care of myself, and offered suggestions on potential repairs. Things don't end when you get the final inspection report from Mitchell Home Inspections. Mitch is available to answer any questions, go over the report in more detail, and due to his extensive background experience, answer any contractor questions. I've already had the opportunity to recommend him to a few friends, in the short time since he inspected our home, and will continue to do so.
--- Jonathan D., September 2018
Thorough, timely, and goes the extra mile. I highly recommend Mitch to anyone looking. Very knowledgeable on multiple systems and areas. Able to answer all my questions. Thanks Mitch.
--- Sean W., April 2018
Professional, friendly, and thorough all words used to describe Mitch and his home inspection company in other reviews and they couldn't be more right. This was the second inspection I've ever needed, and I'm 100% certain that if I'd had them on my first inspection, I wouldn't have had so many surprises with that house. Mitch was early, his inspection was impeccable, he was a pleasure to talk to, and the report came in fast. The report itself was amazingly thorough, easy to understand, and included pictures of everything. Mitch also responded immediately to email questions over the next couple days and provided knowledgeable advice. From start to finish, it was a pleasure working with him. I can't recommend his services enough.
--- Regina G., February 2017
My husband and I recently were blessed to work with Mitch and his partner in our home inspection. The amount of time and detail that went into the whole process was amazing. Being first time home buyers they provided so much detail and explanations as they went through, the house so that we understood. We received the very thorough report promptly the next day, to help continue the process with our home purchase. We will definitely recommend Mitchell home inspections to any family, and friends and even use them if ever needed in the future. Thank you so much Mitch and Jim for such great reliable work.
--- David W., January 2016
Mitch did a great job helping us through our home inspection. He is very knowledgeable and open about what work may need done on the house and the best ways to get it done. Every question we had for him he responded with a very detailed answer. He was very meticulous about the inspection and took pictures of everything. When he was finished with the inspection he left us with an open relationship saying that if we ever have any questions or need advice on a contractor that we could call him at any time. I would definitely recommend using Mitch especially if there are any doubts about a home.
--- Lindsey W., January 2016
Mitch and Jim are not only the best inspectors I have ever come across but also two of the best people. My husband and I worked with them while we were in the process of buying a foreclosure. To say the least the process with the bank was long and difficult but the process with Mitch and Jim was a shining light at the end of the tunnel! Mitch was always available to answer questions and both gentleman came out to the property multiple times to ensure that we were covered from top to bottom. Even when we had to reschedule 10 times due to the bank and eventually cancel the inspection completely they never wavered in their professional and kind demeanor. They recommended specialty inspectors and contractors we needed and offered incredible, knowledgeable advice. I cannot say enough good things about these two. When looking for an inspector LOOK NOWHERE ELSE but Mitch and Jim!!!!!!!!!!!!
--- V J., January 2016
If you want a quality home inspection with an informative, detailed, and experienced inspector, I highly recommend Mitchell home Inspections. Customer service was excellent and I've received my inspection report within 24 hours.
--- Ken W., January 2016
Mitch and Jim were great. Not only did they do a thorough inspection, they took the time to explain things to me. They are from the area so they know the types of construction common in and around Annapolis.The report was very informative and well put together.
--- Michelle H., September 2015
We worked with Mitch and Jim for a recent home inspection and radon testing in our new home. Both of them were extremely informative and knowledgable. They spent a great deal of time reviewing everything with us making sure we had a good understanding of the property's downsides as well as good points. They were both very professional and responsive. We would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking for a quality home inspector.

Anyone who is familiar with the Annapolis, MD real estate market knows that you have to be prepared to move quickly and with confidence when the right opportunity presents itself. I contacted Mitchell Home Inspections twice in a one-week period with short notice (pre-contract) inspection requests, and in both instances Mitch was able to fully accommodate our needs.
During both inspections, Mitch and his partner Jim arrived and setup early, fully explained the inspection process to me, and invited me to follow along with them as they worked through the property, home, structure, and systems. By following along I gained a considerable amount of knowledge from the two seasoned professionals, which was later documented and provided in a detailed inspection report with photos. Most importantly, I was able to obtain a "gut feeling" for the condition of the home, the amount and critical nature of required repairs, and use that knowledge to determine the appropriate offer to submit.
Mitchell Home Inspections helped us to determine which home was the right one for us while providing us the much-needed confidence to submit a strong non-contingent "as-is" offer on the home. Our offer was accepted!
I highly recommend Mitchell Home Inspections.
--- Kaycee R., July 2015
My husband and I had a great experience with Mitchell Home Inspections. These guys were extremely thorough, which was really important to me being a first-time buyer. They were detailed in the walk-through and also on the written report. The report was detailed but easy to read with photos showing exactly what the concerns were. Their inspection and formal report helped my husband and I make important addendums to our contract- stuff I wouldn't have had a clue about if they hadn't taken the time to explain it to me. They were patient and professional, taking their time to listen to our questions and responding to us. They have also been very available after the inspection for all of our follow-up questions/concerns. I highly recommend these guys- they know their stuff, get the job done expeditiously, and are extremely professional! Kaycee R.
--- Abbey B., July 2015
Mitch and Jim were able to schedule our inspection quickly, they arrived early, and were ready to start immediately. They were thorough and took their time, pointing things out as they worked. Mitch and Jim were both great about sharing concerns, as well as general home maintenance items. Their report was easy to understand, with color pictures, and even red arrows or circles on the pictures noting concerns.
We were so happy with the inspection and the report overall, and would highly recommend Mitchell Home Inspections. Our realtor took their business cards and definitely planned to recommend them to clients in the future. Abbey B.

Hello Mitch & Jim,
I can't thank you both enough for your help Saturday! I finally had the time to read over the entire report and it was everything we'd talked about. You guys are so prompt and thorough; this was a wonderful experience! Thanks for being so helpful and taking the time to explain everything and answer questions. Some of the projects I think I'll be able tackle. Of course, for the majority I will call someone :) If you have any recommendations, I'd appreciate the referral.
Thank you again for all your help!
--- Ryan F., April 2015
Thanks for getting the report over to me. Looks good, glad you labeled me in that picture too haha. After looking over the report I think I understand everything that you noted, but will contact you if I have any questions. I appreciate you both showing me what things are yesterday and taking your time to thoroughly look over the house. I definitely plan to leave you some positive reviews, but probably won't get around to that today.

First of all on one day's notice, Mitch agreed to do my home inspection in Harford County over an hour away from his normal area of operation. Mitch was punctual, even at the house before I was. When I approached Mitch to tell him who I was, he was extremely friendly and started explaining to the process involved in the home inspection. When he was done explaining the process, he asked me if I had any questions. I asked if it would be O.K. If I followed him around and asked question, Mitch's reply was absolutely. Mitch was very thorough and started inspecting the site and taking numberous pictures and notes. Mitch then moved to the roof of the home then the inside moving from the second floor to the basement. During the entire inspection, our conversations and his willingness to teach me about the various aspects of the house I was buying gave me the sense that he was doing a very thorough job. Mitch spent 4 hours doing my home inpection and wrote up a 35 page report within a day. I couldn't have been happier with the inspection that Mitch did. I would Highly recommend his services.
--- Kayla B., March 2015
Mitchell inspected every single thing. He took his time and made sure it was done thoroughly. He also included us in the inspection, showing us different things he found to make us aware.
The inspection process with Mitchell went very well. He arrived on time and prepared. He got back with us in a timely manner with the inspection report. I would recommend Mitchell, and also return to him.
---Brendan S., March 2015
Mitch completed a home inspection for some of my clients who were first time home buyers. (I am a Realtor). So it was important to me and to them to be through and explain things without assuming too much and or scaring them. He did a nice balancing act of explaining problems that were found and did not show bias towards any extremes (which is important from my point of view). The report was well laid out with lots of pictures. Overall was a solid job. Although he is newer to the inspection world at the time of writing this, he and his partner clearly know their stuff. I would be more then happy to use them again.
---Heather M., February 2015
I experienced excellent customer service from Mitchell Home Inspections. I was able to get the inspection scheduled right away at a time convenient for me. I received a full inspection report the very next day! I was pleased with the thorough inspection and the professional interest taken in answering all my questions. I would highly recommend Mitchell Home Inspections to any prospective home buyers.
---Adam W., February 2015
My wife and I were and are very impressed with the Home Inspection Services that we received from Mitchell Home Inspections. They were very friendly, thorough, and knowledgeable with all aspects of the inspection. They took great pictures (including highlighting key areas), and provided an excellent and professional report within 24 hours of the inspection. The biggest value was the education that we received during and after the inspection (especially as first time home buyers). I am a little shocked at how little we knew about the house, and am definitely happy with our decision to go with Mitchell Home Inspections.
Another thing I noticed was the home inspectors and follow on report didn't just focus on everything that was wrong. In the report, the best, the worst, and everything in between was documented and explained. I was also pleasantly surprised that they kept our original appointment time, despite 6 inches of snow falling the night before.
