Jaffar did the full inspection right after we close, and we are so impressed with his professionalism, knowledge, and... expertise. He has tremendous experience in construction and is extremely knowledge about the building industry. He provided us with an extremely detailed report after the thorough inspection. He even took extra time to come back to our house and re-take some of the photos which were not very clear when he took them during the inspection, and we are very impressive with how dependable and detail-oriented he was. The report he provided is extremely detailed and has a lot of pictures with illustration showing how things should look like in the right way, which I found extremely helpful and easy to understand. I would definitely hire Jaffar again when we need another inspection in the future.read more

Great experience! Even before I hired Jaffar, he had given me pointers and things to think about when considering the... property. He was very responsive, professional and attentive to detail. The inspection was a 1970s home with updates at different time points. He provided a lot of explanation about the items he listed in his report that has enabled us to prioritize issues. His in depth knowledge of residential construction is a huge asset and it's clear he finds it very interesting. I learned a lot and have a higher level of comfort that I understand the property I'm purchasing.read more

This was not my first home inspection but was the best. The inspector did a great job walking me through the entire... process and took the time to explain big and small issues as we were talking together. When that was completed, he started the documentation process and provided a detailed report. This was an older house and I was nervous. Performing the inspection gave me the peace of mind on the good and the bad about the house. I highly recommend his service.read more

Jaffar performed my pre-drywall inspection, and I am so glad he did. Throughout the process, he was dependable,... detail-oriented, and responsive. While one may think these qualities shouldn’t be hard to come by, in this current housing market, it is almost impossible to find! Every interaction with Jaffar was pleasant. Who knew one of the most manageable parts of buying my home would be the inspection process! If you’re looking for someone to perform an inspection for your home, you can stop looking because he is one of the best inspectors in the area!read more

Mr. Ahmad really helped me out when I needed it- the offer deadline on a house I was interested in was brought forward... to 5pm that same day and I had not conducted a home inspection: he answered my call on a Sunday at 11.30am, pulled up permits and home information to get an overview, came out at the time agreed, completed a thorough as could be inspection and identified some issues within a 45 min window we had. He was professional, kind, courteous and very knowledgeable. My agent (who wasn't able to find someone at such short notice) was also impressed. I would definitely recommend Prudent.read more

Jaffar Ahmad performed an inspection for my clients on a townhouse in DC. He was referred to me by a colleague who has... used him many times. He was prompt, courteous, professional and a great guy. He was extremely knowledgeable which stems from his extensive background in the building industry. His presentation on the issues he found was helpful, informative and educational. Jaffar is one of the best inspectors I have used in my 32 years in the Real Estate business! I look forward to using him again. Pam P.read more

We had Jaffar do three home inspections for us as we were shopping to by a home. He is incredibly thorough and clearly... very knowledgeable. He shared a ton of his knowledge about the systems and maintenance intervals and expected lifespan of various systems and structures. He saved us from bidding on homes that would have been a lot of extra work and he also helped us feel comfortable about bidding when we finally found the one. I would highly recommend Jaffar to anyone looking for an home inspector and will use his services again every time we have the need.read more

We used Jaffar to inspect a home we were planning on purchasing. He was incredibly thorough, so much so that my Uncle,... who is a contractor, said he's never seen an inspector that was so worth the money. He was meticulous, didn't hesitate to go back to the property to get more information, and even offered to stop the inspection at the start to save us money when he quickly identified something rather large was wrong (We went through with it, but it was very nice of him to give us the option). While we didn't end up moving forward with purchasing that home, we will not hesitate to use Jaffar for any home we plan to purchase and I highly suggest that you do so too!read more

I cant emphasize how happy we are with Jaffar’s service. He is the consummate professional: accommodating, prompt and... his integrity is beyond reproach. He provided us with an educational experience that left us equipped to make solid decisions about a homes value and his thorough report provided us with an excellent plan to address whatever home issues need to be resolved. His advice on what to prioritize will have saved us thousands of dollars and ensure the prolonged value of our home. Simply put, he is the best home inspector I have worked with in 20 years of frequent moves.read more

As a first time home buyer, Jaffar made the home inspection process very easy and stress-free. He explained everything... I needed to know before committing to the inspection. And during the inspection, he made sure to point out any issue that he found, big or small. After delivering the inspection report, he went ahead to explain the significance of each item, and even counseled me on how to approach a credit negotiation on some of the items. Because of his inspection and counseling, I was able to save a lot of money! 5/5 Recommended!read more

Was a very good inspector, and answered all my questions about the property we were about to buy. Very knowledgeable on... all types of construction, especially with remodeled old buildings, which allowed him to point out EVERY single possible issue that might need correcting in the future as well as things that needed corrected immediately. Highly recommended.read more
