I would use Ron again in a heartbeat.
My family has been involved in residential and commercial real estate for many years. The property inspection process is absolutely vital to every real estate transaction. If you are not dealing with someone you know, the quality of reports can be less than desirable. I was a bit hesitant about getting an inspection done on a commercial property by someone I didn't know. However, I was lucky enough to contact Ringen's Unbiased Inspections. Ron Ringen is without question a true professional. His attention to detail and knowledge of his job was much more than I had expected. By the time I received my final report, I knew every inch of the property I was looking to purchase. In addition to top-notch recommendations and excellent photos, I felt completely confident that I was more informed than your average purchaser.
I highly recommend Ringen's Unbiased Inspections to anyone who desires an honest and thorough inspection done at a very reasonable price. I would use Ron again in a heartbeat.

I don’t know how to thank you enough for the help you’ve given Roy and me in buying our first home.
I don’t know how to thank you enough for the help you’ve given Roy and me in buying our first home. Your comprehensive inspection report with all the pictures and detailed notes is a valuable guide that will prioritize all future improvements we do. Most of all, your report and expert advice helped us to be confident in determining the true value of the home while we were bidding on.
Our first time home buying experience was a little rough. The realtors we worked with did not have our best interests in mind. They pushed us to close the deal and tried to dissuade us from understanding the extent of pest damage and the condition of the HVAC system. In their eyes, helping us uncover the true condition of the home simply prolonged escrow. But you, on the other hand, encouraged us to take our time and find out everything we wanted to know about the home before we finalized a price with the seller. So, much to the chagrin of the realtors, we took our time and got second opinions and advice. We found out the pest company who worked with the realtors was pulling the wool over our eyes. Frankly I don’t know how those people can sleep at night. You were the primary reason we avoided a lifelong nightmare of buying a cute, over-priced house with hidden problems. How do I thank you enough? We are both so grateful we didn’t trust the inspector that the realtors brought in! Choosing to work with you instead saved us literally thousands of dollars.
Lastly, I am grateful to you for working so closely with our contractor to make sure recommended work gets done quickly and correctly. Thank you for making so much of your time available for follow up calls, advice and recommendations. You have saved us additional thousands of dollars by coordinating repair work with other honest home repair professionals. Your services are so valuable - we need people with such high integrity to stay in the county.

I am impressed with the thoroughness and professionalism I found in each instance
In my relatively short time in the real estate business in Tuolumne County, I have had the opportunity to experience working with Ringen's Unbiased Inspections on three transactions. In each transaction I represented the Buyer.
I am impressed with the thoroughness and professionalism I found in each instance. In my opinion, these traits, combined with the neutrality provided by Ringen's Unbiased Inspections, make an inspection by this firm an essential component of any real estate transaction. The reports detailing the results of each inspection were: provided in a timely manner, clear and concise, and easily understood by my client. The reports easily made it possible for the client to make an informed decision on the purchase of the property.
The benefits of an inspection by this firm are equally important for a seller. Advance knowledge of the true condition of a property can help ensure a smooth transaction by determining obstacles, if any, needing correction prior to entering a contract or that will become negotiating points during the initial stage of a contract. I believe so strongly in the advantage of a seller having an inspection in hand prior to entering a purchase contract that I do not think I would take a listing without the seller having this inspection at the time a listing contract is entered.
For these reasons, I would not hesitate to personally recommend Ringen's Unbiased Inspections to any party involved in real estate transaction.

It is a great asset to have one of Ron’s detailed reports to work from.
Going about our busy lives it seems we grow unaware of deterioration and attention required of our greatest investments, our homes. Small oversights become large repairs in short time.
I occasionally run into someone who has used Ron as their home inspector. Ringen’s Unbiased Inspections reports are detailed and straight forward. As a handyman, his report makes my job easier and quicker, and therefore less expensive for the customer. Even in my own home, I knew I was growing blind to issues I was living with each day. In calling Ron, I knew I was going to get the brutal unbiased truth from him; the truth I needed to keep my investment healthy.
Whether you are hiring repair work done or able to do the work yourself, it is a great asset to have one of Ron’s detailed reports to work from.

You truly live up to your motto of “Your inspector for life”.
Dear Mr. Ringen: I am writing to thank you for the wonderful service you did for me. It's nice to know that there are still honest people that perform excellent service in our current world of chaos and unreliability. I commend you for your true unbiased inspections of the homes I was interested in. Your inspections and reports are thorough and precise not only for the buyer, but the seller as well. You truly live up to your motto of "Your inspector for life".
I am sure that someday I will again call upon you to inspect future properties. Until that day, it will be my pleasure to recommend your services to anyone who needs a home inspection.
I also wanted to thank you for personally caring about my situation and for your understanding and patience that allowed me to buy a home and go through escrow without worrying about the inspection payment process.
Respectfully yours, Susan M. Tinsley
Ron is easy to work with, professional and knows his business.
I engaged Ron to assist me with finding an answer to difficult pest and structural issues on a project I was a contractor for. Ron was very responsive, knowledgeable and brought some calm methodology to a volatile situation with a buyer of a property who would not accept the conditions of the project. Ron went out of his way to come up with suggestions and ultimately offered advice that helped me work with the buyers for a solution. Ron is easy to work with, professional and knows his business. I highly recommend Ron.
I would not hesitate to use your services again and would highly and completely recommend you to anyone interested in a fair, honest and impartial analysis
Dear Ron, When my wife and I were considering buying a Bed and Breakfast in Jamestown we felt the need for an inspection of the property from top to bottom in order to apprise ourselves of what we were getting into. Since the building is over 100 years old I had no idea what to look for or what to expect. Fortunately we were smart enough to contact you for this peace of mind.
After dealing with you over the last 2 weeks I can honestly say I have learned more than I ever thought possible. You performed not only a termite inspection but also a complete home inspection as well. While I was completely impressed with your thoroughness and professionalism in this process I was even more thankful for your openness and honesty in communication with me. Your patience and ability to explain the details of your findings did much to set my mind at ease. It seemed that you always had time to talk to me and never talked over my head or down to me. This is a unique talent and one that made a huge impression on me as a consumer.
As a lay person in the area of construction, home inspection and repairs I needed someone I could trust to give me a fair and honest assessment of the situation. You have fulfilled these requirements far above my expectations. Any major investment of this size always bears a certain amount of risk, both known and unknown. I feel that your involvement in the process has greatly reduced a major portion of this unknown risk for me and made more visible the reality of the entire situation. Trust is something that must be earned. You have certainly earned mine.
I would not hesitate to use your services again and would highly and completely recommend you to anyone interested in a fair, honest and impartial analysis of the condition of any property or structure. Thanks again Ron for all of your help.
Sincerely, Kenneth A. Spencer
I felt like I was in great hands
Ron possesses a great deal of knowledge and is able to deliver the knoledge in a very user friendly way, along with the use of technology. I felt like I was in great hands the whole time. He invited me to participate with the inspection, and walk around with him so he could explain everything in detail as we were looking at it and let me ask questions. Considering how hot it was that day and how dirty some of the places were that he had to crawl into, Ron truly left no stone unturned. He checked every nook and cranny that he could access and explained things along the way he thought I should know. He took his time, did not rush, and even went back to double check a few concerns he had before ending the inspection, he stayed much longer than expected. He even made himself available via email and cell phone to answer more questions as they arise. I truly wish there were more professional individuals around today that take pride, care and concern in their work as Ron does. I will not hesitate to use Ron's services again or to refer him to friends and family.
I had no idea how completely thorough your report would be.
I had no idea how completely thorough your report would be. Not only a great report, so detailed with pictures, but extra comments for easier understanding plus additional conversations to help me understand. And also a second booklet for the pest inspection. It took three readings for me to get the full picture as this house really needs work and you were always there at the end of the phone line.
I thank you so much Ron and I will always be grateful to Carol Griggs of Frontier Property Management for referring you to me.
In appreciation, Gloria Cowan
We were very satisfied with his 40+ years of construction knowledge and attention to detail through 6+ hours of inspection.
It was a pleasure working with you Saturday. We are relocating from the bay area to Copperopolis to a home we have had since 2000. We wanted to get a complete house inspection top to bottom for peace of mind. I found Ron online and set an appt. We were very satisfied with his 40+ years of construction knowledge and attention to detail through 6+ hours of inspection. Ron knows the rights and wrongs of a structure inside and out. Aside from some deck work and minor improvements, Ron's professionalism helped us to begin turning a house into a safe and comfortable home. We highly recommend Ron for your inspection services.

Mr. Ringen has inspected five homes for us in the past six months for the purpose of identifying investment opportunities
Mr. Ringen has inspected five homes for us in the past six months for the purpose of identifying investment opportunities. His inspections are absolutely the most thorough in the industry, easy to read, and a clear guide of what the buyer is getting into. If you want an inspection that will gloss over the problems do not hire Ron, he will find every little potential problem so you know what your cost to fix really are.

Thanks for the very thorough and detailed report.
Ron, thanks for the very thorough and detailed report. You certainly do a better job than any other inspector I've worked with. We'll be in touch I'm sure.
