(would you like to submit a testimonial? click here!)





I had my soon-to-be home inspected this morning by Mr. Don Penny. 



Mr. Penny was very thorough with this inspection, and I felt very comfortable with his experience, knowledge and expertise as a professional. 



Being a somewhat anxious first-time home buyer, I was very appreciative of the time and the consideration given to me, as Don reported, and explained (in detail) his findings, and offered recommendations for maintenance and energy savings; I was left with a great sense of relief.



Excellent service!  I will certainly refer others to Mr. Penny and APHI.

To whom it may concern:


     Donald Penny was our home inspector for 419 Chimborazo BLVD, Richmond, VA.  He was extremely professional and courteous.  He took the time to walk us through everything and gave us a detailed explanation of each area he inspected.  He demonstrated meticulous attention to detail. Donald answered all of our questions and he was very knowledgable.  His inspection report was very detailed and thorough, and was completed and sent to us the very same evening.  I would strongly recommend him to our friends and family.  We appreciate our experience with Donald Penny.

My wife and I could not be happier with our home inspection. As new home buyers we feel very vulnerable and ignorant and having someone take their time to explain things was invaluable. We also felt some security with Mr. Penny encouraging us to call him with any questions further down the road. Thank you for such a thorough and conscientious job.

Don did a great inspection on the property that I was interested in purchasing. I was very concerned about the cost of repairs due to the age and size of the home. He was able to give me a good idea of the potential ongoing costs and the immediate costs that would have been necessary to make the property inhabitable. Following the inspection, Don spoke with me again at length to go over the items in the inspection report and to explain each item in the report. He also gave me a high and low range for the repair expenses. I did not end up purchasing that property but I would definitely use Don again to do the inspection on the next home I consider buying.

My husband and I were both very impressed with how prompt Donald Penny was. He was professional and was not bothered by the questions that I nor my husband asked. He gave helpful suggestions on maintaining our recently purchased home. My mind was put at ease knowing that he had gone over the entire home from top to bottom. We will recommend American Pride Home Inspections to everyone!

“I have used many home inspectors over the last four years and with each one I was hopeful I would find “the one”! Well, that had not happened until I met Don Penny with APHI. Don has always been the most trustworthy, honest, timely, and above all fast while still paying attention to every detail. The book and CD ROM are bonus materials to help assist the client and the realtor in the home inspection process…”

“As we all know a home inspection can be very stressful for both buyers and sellers. The smallest issue can turn into something huge and deals can be lost. I have personally recommended Don Penny with APHI on all of my transactions. His professionalism, punctuality, experience and knowledge have shined in every instance…For many a home will be the single largest investment made in their lifetime. So why wouldn’t you, as the agent, want to protect your clients and give them the best home inspection out there?”

"I just want to take a minute to thank you for helping me this past year with my home inspections. The service you provide to my clients is top notch. As you know, I have several businesses that I need to refer my clients from home inspectors, to lenders, to termite inspectors, to attorneys, and the list goes on and on. It is important that everyone of my referrals goes above and beyond because it is a direct reflection on my business. I have had numerous clients thank me for referring American Pride Home Inspections. The reports that you put together, the pictures, the address labels that are made, the follow up to make sure everything went well, the time frame from inspection to when I get the report, all of the total package put Don Penny and American Pride Home Inspections in a league of your own. Keep up the good work and I will talk to you soon to schedule another home inspection. Thanks again!"

This has been our first experience with this team! Being the President of a multi-million dollar company I appreciate good service. The service we have experienced with this team was excellent!!
I would highly recommend this team to anyone. Their technical experience as well as timeliness and service was superior. Additionally, their inspection resulted in more savings to us than their cost.
I am very impressed with this Company! All I can say is "Wow!"
Thank you for doing such a nice job!

I was very pleased with the time and care you took in this inspection. You went over the house with a fine toothed comb. I was also very impressed with the time you took to answer my questions and explain things to me. You showed me a great deal of respect and did not treat me as many have in the past. (Like a dumb female)I respect and appreciate your honesty, thorouhgness and apparent integrity. I would recommend you to anyone needing a home inspection.

Karen Liptrap, Colonioal Heights, VA



I just wanted to tell you what a pleasant experience it was to have you inspect my future property. You were very professional & extremely well versed on all aspects of my home inspection. I feel that you may have saved me much stress & money by pointing out the possible problems, so that I can have them addressed before closing. I would highly reccomend you to any potential Home Owners. In fact I have already done so for my Daughters Boss who is in the process of buying a home in the very near future.


Again, Thank you!

Karen Tucker, Richmond, VA



Thanks for all your help and being our home inspector. I plan to visit the home on Th. to make sure that they have completed everything - I'll need Ryan to get up under the house to check it out!!!




Kelly Lowe, Chesterfield, VA




I wanted you to know that in the past inspections we’ve had, I can’t even remember who it was that did them. My wife and I were speaking about how much professionalism and dedication you bring to your profession, with the unique customer service oriented approach. Linda really has a great team!


Thanks for the great work!
