Kyrie H, 37206

They were friendly and courteous, but also professional, and they did a very thorough inspection. We received the reports in a timely manner. We also had sewer scope, and radon, mold, and termite tests performed. We would definitely recommend Magnolia Home Inspections to anyone buying a new house in the Nashville area!

Beth R, 37216

Having purchased multiple houses, and used multiple home inspection companies, I can truly say that Magnolia left me feeling, by far, the most confident in the condition of my new home. Would gladly use Magnolia as my company of choice.

New Testimonial 2

Nathan B, 37064

I HIGHLY recommend. Peter did an amazing job! Nothing was untouched or not explained. The report is literally 40+ pages of photos. Also, at the end of the report they give recommendations for local plumbers/electricians/contractors/etc and that's super helpful! We are super pleased and it was well worth the price for the details!
