Here's what Gene's Clients have to say:
1RST TIME HOME BUYER ...THEY PUT MY MIND AT EASE.Gene was recommended to me by a real estate agent Ameil Gill. I'm a first time home buyer and to be honest I know nothing about owning a home. Gene was thorough, patient and extremely informative. He took me through the entire home, answered all my questions and gave me some amazing pointers. I have actually recommended Lighthouse inspections to my co-worker and she was very pleased with their service. You guys are awesome and I will continue to recommend and use your services.
