Dear Mr Steve La Rosa,
I just want to give you a belated thank you for your very thorough home inspection. Your attention to detail and identifying any building code irregularity issues was truly appreciated. Your report gave me much more comfort knowing more in detail of what I was purchasing. Being in California during the purchasing period, your “eyes” and home construction knowledge was critical in my decision to make an educated offer to the seller. After 7 months, I have not had any unexpected surprises of being the new new owner of the property. Your professionalism and always being readily available to answer my questions gave me such peace of mind during the whole purchasing process. Thank you again.

Thank you so much for inspecting our new house and we are truly satisfy with your work. We didn’t have much time for some reason and we had to ask you a day before the inspection. You were busy but you made a time for us and you did a wonderful job for us. You didn’t just check the house but took time and you tried to teach us things we should know. It was nice to see you and we really appreciate your job for us. Thank you so much again.

We can’t say enough positive things about Steve LaRosa from Rodan Inspections. Steve was thorough and gave us useful information and great advice while having our inspection done. As first time homebuyers being new to the process it was reassuring to have someone so knowledgeable doing our home inspection. Steve’s sense of humor made a usually nerve wracking experience much more enjoyable. We would recommend Steve’s services to anyone looking for a wonderful home inspector. Thanks Steve!!!

Having lived through a house hunt that should probably be documented somewhere in the record books as one of the longest and most painful of its kind, we would like to express our sincerest “Thank you” for the support Steve La Rosa provided throughout the process. After spending 11 months looking at, quite literally, every home for sale in my town and having found “the one” … five times – we are happy to report that we have finally selected and settled into our new home.
The thing that most gratifies us at the end of this long journey is the comfort we have in the quality and safety of the home we ultimately chose. Steve La Rosa of Rodan Enterprises Inc played a major role in the decision we made to buy the home that we did. Steve went above and beyond at every step along the way – and in most cases his support extended well beyond the services of a typical home inspector. I would actually classify Steve’s role as much more of a full service “Home Purchase Consultant” providing insight and guidance around every aspect of our home search – not just a mechanical inspection of the fundamentals. He helped us disqualify homes that would ultimately not fit the lifestyle of our family over the long-term as well as focus-in on the specific elements of concern in those homes that did fit the bill. His consultation around safety and health issues was of paramount importance to us and our young family.
We can say with all sincerity that Steve ultimately helped us make the right decision about which house to build our future in. We would without hesitation recommend him to anyone looking for a truly reliable partner in the home purchase process. Clearly he is the best in his field!

To Whom It May Concern,
My finacee and I hired Rodan Enterprises to inspect two historic Victorian homes as a part of our home buying process. Mr. Steve La Rosa was a pleasure to work with from the early stages of our acquaintance to the date we signed a contract for our new home. Mr. La Rosa was always prompt, thorough, respectful, and most of all helpful.
Being first time homebuyers that fell in love with old houses, my fiancee and I were anxious to find an inspector with specific knowledge of older homes. We found Rodan Enterprises through an internet search and could not be happier with our discovery. From day One Mr. La Rosa kept in contact with us concerning our questions and appointments. He returned phone calls promptly and always made time to answer any/all our questions on the phone, through email, and in person.
Mr. La Rosa made a detailed inspection of both homes, scrutinizing everything from the roof, to the foundation and the grounds. He explained his findings to both my fiance and I in language we could understand. I truly appreciate the time he took to explicate his findings to me, as I have no prior knowledge of construction. Mr. La Rosa was patient and unambiguous in our conversations. As part of the inspection, Mr. La Rosa emailed us a copy of the written report and mailed us a hard copy as well. Included in his hard copy was additional information concerning the hazards of lead paint, buried oil tanks, mold, and asbestos. Mr. La Rosa’s knowledge and professionalism made our first home buying experience educational and pleasant.
It was a pleasure to work with Rodan Enterprises and it is without reservation that I commend him to your recommendation.

Dear Mr La Rosa,
I have to say that with all the headaches and complications in purchasing a home for the first time, it was definitely a pleasure to have one aspect that went smoothly, quickly, and without a problem. It was so easy t contact you and you were readily available to meet our needs. You were able to do the inspection within five days of our first phone call and the report was in our hands shortly after the inspection. The company’s report was so thorough and detailed that it put our minds at ease about our purchase. I would definitely recommend your company to any and all that may need a home inspection in the future and will definitely not hesitate to use you again in the future. Thanks for everything you did.

I wanted to say a big thank your for the service that you offer. Normally, when seeking professional services, I rely on personal referrals, however after visiting your web site and reading other testimonials, I felt comfortable in giving you a call.
As a semi-experienced home buyer, and someone familiar with other inspectors, I have to say I was very happy that I chose you. The on-site inspection and subsequent report exceeded all of my expectations. I believe your personal experiences in the home buying process makes you exceptional in what you do. I would be happy to refer you and also use your services again.
Anand & Melissa M
I wanted to take the time to THANK YOU for your services. Your experience as a home inspector was very evident in your professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail. The final inspection report that you produced was very organized and provided me a great deal of insight into the current state of the home I was interested in. As a first time home buyer, the whole process was very confusing and stressful in the beginning. However, working with you was a pleasure and really alleviated a lot of the confusion and blindness. I’m happy to inform you that due to your report, we were able to negotiate several thousand off the asking price of the house!
I can assure you I will be recommending you to my friends and family.
Thanks again for all your help.
Both my husband and I were totally satisfied with your professionalism, and your knowledge of home inspections was outstanding. We are first time homeowners and in todays market, homeownership can be very scary. You were able to let us know what had to be taken care of immediately to keep our family and home safe, and still put us at ease. We cannot thank you enough, just for that…
It was a pleasure to have met you and your very unique personal touch. Your report was more than thorough, but also easy for the layman to read and understand. Thank you again, and best wishes for a successful year.
Valerie & Theodore N
We just wanted to say thanks for pointing us in the right direction. We would have purchased that first house you came to without even realizing the consequences. We really appreciate you explaining the consequences of that mess and helping us by inspecting our beautiful new home. A much better decision!
Scott & Lisa M
We could not have been happier with anybody else inspecting our home. You were so thorough and efficient we really appreciated it. Since we have never done this before you really made the process that much easier for us. Thank you for your honesty and your professionalim. We would recommned you to anyone we know who is thinking of buying a house.
Thanks again! We really appreciate it!
Staci & Billy S
Thank you for doing such a wonderful and thorough job. Yes, I did realize some of our issues and we will have to address them BEFORE I sell this place. We appreciate all your hard work, and I will definitely refer you to any buyers needing your services.

Steve was extremely thorough and detailed oriented, with an emphasis on home safety. He described issues to me in a manner I was able to understand in order to make conscientious decisions. For items that required follow up, he carefully explained as though it were his own home he was discussing.
He was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to my family and friends for a home inspection.
Hi Steve, thank you so much for the wonderful and thorough report. I now feel absolutely informed about the home I am considering to purchase, and I am super excited about the next step in the process of becoming a homeowner!!! It was great seeing and working with you as well.
Thank you Steve for your help. Your expertise will aid us greatly with the purchase of this home. IF the deal falls through, you can be assured we will be in contact in the future for another home of our choice.
The inspector from Rodan made my first home inspection a wonderful experience. He quickly relieved any stress I had about the situation, and he made me feel at ease and comfortable asking any questions. He took his time, was extremely thorough, and allowed me to walk with him so that I knew exactly what to give my attention once I bought the house. I would highly recommend using Rodan to inspect your home.
Steve did a great job! His thoroughness was rewarded in discovering some MAJOR issues. (Issues that I could not have financed once the house was in my possession.) His willingness to answer questions AFTER the inspection, both onsite on follow-up calls, pays tribute to his integrity and passion for assisting me in making an informed and educated decision. He was friendly throughout ALL of our interactions as well as prompt in responding to any and ALL questions.
Steve at Rodan Home Inspection is a thorough home inspection professional whose in-depth reports will save you time, money and fustration in your home buying process. My husband and I used Steve/Rodan for our pre-contract home inspection and again at our final walk-through. Steve’s reports are clear and easy to understand. They are prepared quickly and contain color photos of all points of interest. We were originally advised that we did not really need to use an inspector because we were moving into new construction. However, Steve picked up on several issues that we would have never noticed had we done it on our own, issues that would have cost us a lot of money to fix had we not been made aware of them until after we moved in. I highly recommend hiring this outstanding inspector for your next real estate purchase.
Steve is a dream to work with absolutely on target with a great personality filled with a passion to get the job done right! He will always be recommended in my book.
Rodan Home Inspections was a god send!! My inspector Steve was thorough and extremely knowledgeable. Steve’s fun-loving personality and professionalism made me feel at ease through this stressful home buying process. Steve went through the entire inspection with me step by step and answered all my questions. He was so great I used him twice!!
Steve’s informative and easy to read report saved me money!!! It covered everything step by step of every aspect of the home inspection including pictures. The summary page was fantastic. It provided me with the highlights of the areas I should be concerned with including recommendations.
I really enjoyed working with Steve and would recommend Rodan Home Inspections to everyone!!
Steve it was a pleasure to meet you as well. I appreciate your candor relating to the inspection. Yes it would have been nice to pay a lower price but I believe you did a thorough job based on what was available. If it is in Gods plan for us to buy this house, I will certainly take you up on the final walk thru. I await your report, and what it says. I am concerned w/ the skylights for leaks because we may not change the roof immediately and we can’t live with a roof leak. I would like to keep lines of communication open with you as I am not a handy guy and this stuff is not my specialty. I was impressed by your earlier work for Merry and as I said I will recommend you to my clients.. Lastly the flowers were extraordinary what a personal touch that both my wife and I will not forget. As we sit at our kitchen table this morning and look at the beautiful flowers we both think of Rodan Inspection Services. Keep up the good work its not often that you find someone as conscientious as you are.
Steve thanks again. We signed contracts yesterday on the property. You have our recommendations. We have plenty of friends who will be buying homes and all will be advised to call you for their inspection.
Joe & Doug
Thanks again for your thorough and meticulous inspection. I have not had the chance to review it, but I will soon. Thanks for highlighting the deficiencies that we found. Kindly email a copy of the report to my lawyer. I will sent you her email address. Thanks again.
Likewise, it was a great pleasure meeting you yesterday.
I skimmed thru the document. It was very detailed and again thank you very much for performing such an outstanding inspection job.
I will let you know if we have any additional questions or concerns.
However, it appears that we may want to just walk away from this house, because of the termite situation, plus some of the more minor issues you have noted, added to the owner’s unwillingness to fix anything.
