The Inspector Home Inspections

Professional Home Inspections


I am humbled and honored to have clients and Realtors who recommend my home inspection services to their families and friends! And it’s no small feat to be selected by more than a dozen Realtors to perform home inspections on homes they are purchasing for their own families. None of this is lost on me and I truly appreciate all of the referrals. Word-of mouth has built my business since 2011 and continues to keep me busy today. I am grateful for the reviews that my clients and Realtors have taken the time to write!

Toby is an excellent home inspector. As other reviewers stated, Toby gives a detailed report following his inspection and follows up with a written report. The quality which makes Toby the best choice is his upfront and honest explanation of his billing before you commit to hiring him. You will make the best choice for your own peace of mind if you hire Toby.

He made accommodations to get the inspection done right away. The report included suggestions of how to repair the items. No wonder my realtor and family endorsed him!

I found Toby through the Rosie on the House web site “Find a Trusted Partner” and he lived up to expectation. Booking the home inspection was made easy, even though the seller had to change the first appointment, a simple phone call to Toby and we had a new inspection date arranged. The report is clear, with lots of pictures including arrows so you know exactly what he’s referring to and of course he does a walk through and explains everything, even making suggestions for ongoing maintenance. Thanks Toby, and thanks Rosie on the House!

Toby is fantastic. Such a pleasure working with him! He was very professional, knowledgeable and thorough in his inspection, inspecting items I wouldn’t even think of. He also included an extremely in depth inspection report (same day!). I highly recommend giving Toby a call if you need a home inspection. You won’t be disappointed!

We couldn’t be happier with the home inspection Toby did for us today.  He started around 7AM and by the time we arrived (around 1030) he had pretty much finished the physical part of the inspection and was working on the report.  He discussed the main issues he had found with us and then walked us through the home to show us where certain things (filters, valves, timers, etc.) were located in the home and pointed out the issues he had discussed.  He was patient and thorough, and explained the issues to us very clearly.  We didn’t leave the home until close to 1PM.

Toby didn’t stop there, however.  I was especially impressed that, since the homeowner was there while he was doing the inspection, he had pointed out the issues he had found to the homeowner before we even got there.  After leaving the home he went to his office to write up the inspection report, which he emailed to us by about 5PM.  I couldn’t believe it when I received the .pdf version of the report – 103 pages!  And this was a report on a house that was in good condition!!  The report included pictures of everything, and started out with a summary page that was very clearly written, with the issues he felt should be addressed in red.  It then included pictures and locations of key items that we needed to know, such as the main water shut off valve, the gas shut off valve, the electrical box, etc.  The end of the report included pictures of the entire house.  The report also included recommendations to us for future maintenance.  This was an extremely well-written and complete inspection report.  

In the email that included the report Toby urged us to feel free to contact him with any questions.  After reviewing the entire report I called him around 8PM with a couple of questions.  He welcomed the additional questions and answered them promptly, again saying if anything else came up to feel free to call.  

The entire experience with Toby was pleasant and professional.  I must add that I originally had an appointment with another inspector because Toby was already booked.  When his schedule changed I immediately canceled my original appointment, mostly because the other inspector made it very clear that he did not want us to be in the home while he was conducting the inspection.  He also made it clear that he did not always go on the roof or in the attic if it was too hot.  And he did two inspections/day to Toby’s one.  Overall, I figured Toby was the better deal and I was right!  I highly recommend The Inspector home inspection services for Toby’s professionalism, thoroughness and clarity.  I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Toby just inspected the park model I’m buying in Apache Junction. I was amazed by the thoroughness of his report, in terms of rating and photographing each item, down to the smallest. He was super professional in terms of making it easy and organized for the inspection process. I’ve never felt moved to recommend an inspector before…Toby is special.

I highly recommend Toby Karlquist, inspector/owner, of The Inspector Home Inspections.  I’ve worked with Toby for years and find him to be extremely thorough, very professional, and exceptionally customer focused.  When I say Toby’s inspections are thorough, I mean he is extraordinarily thorough – he typically spends 5-6 hours conducting a home inspection that another inspector may take 2 hours to conduct.

I’ve received nothing but positive feedback from clients about his home inspections.  They appreciate his comprehensive reports with countless photos and detailed explanations and also appreciate that he is available to them for pre and post-inspection consultations.  He is always available to answer any questions they may have.

Not only do I recommend Toby to clients, but when purchasing my own home, the only inspector I considered was Toby Karlquist.

The Inspector is AWESOME!! Being a real estate agent I’ve used many inspectors and there aren’t any that get the job done like The Inspector! Toby is very thorough and communicates all his findings with our client so they are able to understand the good, the bad and everything in between! I would recommend him to anyone looking for an honest inspection.

Toby has exceeded my exceptions each and every time I have referred him to do work for my clients, I will always recommend him!

Very satisfied with the inspection and would recommend them to anyone who is purchasing a home. No exception is to small to document. Really gives you confidence in your purchase.

We are really happy our Realtor has the contacts she does as we really enjoyed our inspection with Toby. He was very thorough and patient and speaks from a place of experience. He quickly identified areas and was able to speak about the options and alternatives available for mending or repairs. Would do business again.

“I’ve bought a few houses, and had inspections done on them, and Toby is the best. I’ve used Toby twice now, and his inspections are by far the most thorough and clearly presented….”

“Toby did the Home Inspection on my last home purchase, and I was pleased and impressed by what a thorough job he did.”

San Tan Valley, AZ


“…He was far more thorough than we expected, looking at things we would never have thought to investigate. He was so good about explaining things every time we had a question (and even when we didn’t!) We would highly recommend the Inspector to anyone who asks.”

Roy – Palm Springs, CA


Toby did an amazing job with our home inspection. We are first-time home buyers, and were really worried about getting in over our heads. He came out on Sunday of a holiday weekend, which was so helpful! He spent a TON of time in the house, and was super patient with our hundreds of questions. He walked us through the entire house, and explained everything that was going into his report. He even waited at the house well after the inspection was finished for our realtor to arrive, and he went over everything again with her. By that evening, we had a 90-page detailed report, complete with pictures of everything he referred to. Buying a home is nerve-wracking, and he made us feel so much more at ease with our decision. He replies to emails right away, and has been great about answering any other questions we’ve had. I’m so glad we were referred to him, and would use him again in a heart beat!

As a first-time homebuyer, I was worried about the inspection process. Toby took the time to explain everything to me and fielded all of my questions. He provided a thorough and  clear inspection report with photographs. He also made maintenance suggestions and showed me where electrical and water cutoffs were located. Toby can be trusted to do a professional inspection.
