Advanced Home Awareness Home Inspection – Winner of Angie’s List Super Service Award – Three Years Running!

Each year, Angie’s List awards this honor to companies that have provided outstanding service based on member feedback from the previous year. The most recent award given was for the 2015 calendar year. Less than 5% of the companies on the List earned this distinction.

Every one of Advanced Home Awareness Home Inspection’s reviews on Angie’s List since joining Angie’s List has had an “A” rating.

Read what one client posted on Angie’s List:

“Upon the recommendation of our real estate agent, we engaged David Tontarski of Advanced Home Awareness Home Inspections to¬†perform¬†an inspection of¬†a nineteenth century¬†house that we hoped to buy in¬†the¬†East Avenue Historic District in Rochester, NY, and to¬†furnish a prompt but comprehensive report of his findings.

Our inspector, David Tontarski,¬†had already arrived and¬†busied himself examining the exterior of the¬†house and the inside and outside of the detached two car garage before the appointed time, when¬†my husband and I came on the scene.¬† After the introductions, he explained in some detail the advanced level of training and considerable experience that¬†he possesses, and instilled confidence that we had chosen the right¬†person to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the property.¬† He¬†described the process he would follow, and then spent another 3 1/2 hours¬†moving frequently¬†between¬†the home’s basement, the first and second floors and the¬†attic level¬†to check the operation of the home’s¬†two furnaces, central air conditioning system,¬†electric wiring, plumbing fixtures, windows,¬†vents, etc., etc., etc.,¬†¬† Every so often, as he encountered us roaming the house, he would call our attention to some¬†deficiency¬†or other that he had found, explain its significance and how it could be remedied or improved.

His written¬†inspection¬†report, which he completed less than 48 hours later, was nothing short of astounding in¬†it its length and level of detail, and included a wealth of useful recommendations.¬†¬†In short, we found Mr. Tontarski¬† to be the consummate professional,¬†whose expertise and hard work greatly enhanced¬†our knowledge¬†of the house.¬†¬†We¬†expect to have occasion to call upon the knowledgeable, personable Mr. Tontarski in the future.”

Comments from Mr. Tontarski (Dave):

Receiving this award from Angie’s List was very gratifying, as the reviews posted on Angie’s List are made by verified Angie’s List members. (think about it…..most other online reviews can be written by anybody….including the home inspector themselves). As Angie’s List provides free listings for businesses, the reviews posted on their member’s website are not paid for in any way. Yes, Angie’s List does offer enhanced marketing services, designed to get your online presence more noticed, but I have never paid for this. It is my excellent customer reviews posted by Angie’s List members that provides me the high profile on Angie’s List and that won me this award.

As a home inspector, nothing would please me more, than receiving all of my referrals from past satisfied clients, and Angie’s List has allowed me to move closer to this goal. Less than 10% of my business is now derived from realtor referrals, and this is great, as there has been so much written about the potential conflict of interest that exist when a home inspector’s business is reliant upon getting future referrals from realtors. I work solely for my clients, and not the hope or promise of receiving future realtor referrals. I highly respect the small percentage of area realtors that do refer me, as I believe that this demonstrates their focus on ensuring that their clients learn as much about their new home as possible, and receive the best home inspection services available.

Thank-you to all of my customers that have made this award possible and thank-you for referring me to your friends and family. I promise to continue to provide the best home inspection services available to everyone that you refer my way.
