About Us > Testimonials
With over 1700 inspections completed in the Greater Moncton area, hear what some of our customers have to say about the service that they’d received when we’ve inspected their home.
When we decided, a month ago, to list our 70-year-old craftsman style home for sale, we thought it would be helpful to have a home inspection done by Cottage to Castle, just to avoid any surprises with out listing. Jeff provided us with a 76-page report on our home, full of photos and explanations, complete with a summary, highlighting areas of concern. Jeff made the time to meet with us and fully explain answers to our questions. He was reassuring and patient, professional and efficient. We completed the minor repairs needed for our home and were able, because of the knowledge provided in the report, to include in our property disclosure to the buyers any potential areas of concern. Because the buyers were so impressed with the thoroughness of Cottage to Castle’s work, they did not feel the need themselves to do another home inspection. The result: Our house listed and sold in less than a month. Thank you, Jeff, Jeannette and Cottage to Castle. You made our downsizing experience so smooth and easy, and because of your excellent report, the house sale went through in 23 days. Can’t ask for any better service than that!Carol & Gary
Thanks Mike. I would certainly recommend your services to any friends or family looking to purchase a home in the area!Norm
I am very pleased with the service that was provided, specifically the detailed one on one review. It exceeded my expectations and I don’t recall having that much of an in-depth of a review with previous purchases. Well done MikeFrank
I have had an inspection done today on dover rd. and I would like to let you know that I was very pleased with your service. Doug was the inspector on site and was very professional. Good work!Andrew
Cottage To Castle were excellent in helping us finalize the decision to purchase our new home. Their ability to respond to our need for a home inspection quickly was amazing! And their thorough knowledge of the good, the bad and the ugly within a home helped to educate us quickly on all the things to expect. We loved the service and the results!!
ThanksMike Randall and Kim Rayworth
My house was for sale and the new owner had it inspected by Cottage to Castle Home Inspections. The inspection was done while I was home. I was so impress with the way the inspector went about to inspect my home. That when I found a new house I contacted Cottage to Castle Home Inspection to do a thorough inspection of my new home. After the inspection was done he met me and my wife to explain his report and walk us through our new home. We are very please with the work and report that they gave. I would recommend them in a heart beat.Paul Melanson
Thanks for the great service! It was a really good experience and it looks like we will keep the old house.Jennifer
Doug was great. Very knowledgeable and a great personality.
Thanks for the great service!
I just wanted to share my positive testimonial for the wonderful service at Cottage to Castle:
Relocating to a new city and trying to find a healthy and comfortable home can be stressful for most but for someone, like me, who has numerous allergies and sensitivities, it can be quite daunting. Our wonderful Real Estate agent recommended Jeff LeBlanc, at Cottage to Castle Home Inspections, and we have used his expertise on two separate properties before purchasing our current home.
From the first phone call Jeff was pleasant and efficient and adapted his schedule to accommodate our tight deadline. After doing his Inspection of the home ( which I believe was 2 1/2 to 3 hours in each case) we met with Jeff to do a “walk-through” where he pointed out areas of concern and made recommendations on items of priority. Jeff’s thoroughness and expertise was impressive and we felt secure in the knowledge that he treated every inspection as though it were for his own family.
We then received a detailed 70+ page report with clear photos and details of each item of concern. There was also a great Summary at the end of the report which highlighted areas of concern in red. The reports themselves were very clearly detailed, concise and extremely helpful.
Jeff also took time to follow up with us to see if we had any questions or if there was anything else he could do to help in our decision-making process.Heidi Baxter
We purchased our first home this summer and are beyond pleased that we chose Cottage to Castle Home Inspections to inspect the house. Not only was Jeff professional and informative, he clearly explained all aspects of the home inspection making some suggestions to improve our home.
He was thorough going through the entire house top to bottom and we were happy to know exactly what our home offered and what needed to be addressed. Buying a house especially for the first time can be overwhelming but with Cottage to Castle Home Inspections it made it easier and we knew we were in good hands!

I worked with Jeff as an out-of-town buyer who was, insanely, buying a house in a town where the only person that I knew was my real estate agent. Not only did Jeff provide enough pictures and details to make me feel comfortable about buying a house I’d spent about twenty minutes in, he also took time (on his weekend, no less) to sit down on
the phone with me and explain all the things I had questions about. I may have his inspection report framed, and am certainly planning to use it as a checklist of things to look out for in the future. Can’t recommend him highly enough!
We would like to thank you both for your service. We are first time home buyers and some parts of the process can be a little stressful but Doug was awesome during the whole inspection process which was great and very helpful!
Thanks again!Melanie and Stephane
Jeff was very thorough and went through the inspection report step by step, offering helpful suggestions and providing trusted contacts that made me feel confident in my home purchase.
Thanks, again!Lisa Baxter
Great service, as a Realtor I 100% recommend Cottage to Castle! My clients and I both love the thorough inspection reports. Keep up the great work!Becky Babineau
I must say you better hang on to Doug the inspector, he does great work and explains everything very plain. Smart guy!!!Danny
I just wanted to provide feedback on the service I received today. I was very pleased by the inspector and the way completed the very detailed report, along with the walk-through of the house after he explained the report. Mike made me feel very confident about the choice I made in regards to the inspection as he was very knowledgeable and polite. I will refer your services to anyone I know who is looking to book with an inspector.Monique

I would highly recommend Jeff for any home inspection. From the initial contact, Jeff spent more than enough time explaining & walking through the home inspection. He went the extra mile ensuring understanding, but also following up to see if there was anything additional he could do. Jeff provided tremendous service; anyone thinking of purchasing a home should definitely give him a call. Thanks again Jeff!Patrick Chalifoux

Thank you very much to your hard work and support to inspect the house.
Once again, thank you very much and happy new year.
Thank you for the very thorough house inspection. We found it very helpful and interesting.Peggy
Je souhaitais prendre quelques minutes pour te remercier pour ton excellent service, tel que mentionné étant de Montréal je t’ai choisis parmi les quelques noms suggérés par mon agent d’immeuble parce que Penny m’a mentionné que tu avais été agent d’immeuble avant de faire des inspections. Le simple fait que tu es cette double expérience nous rassurait beaucoup ma femme et moi, car tu sais nous devions avoir une personne de confiance étant donné que nous ne sommes pas sur place.
Ton rapport, est simplement excellent, très détaillé avec plusieurs photos, et comme une image vaut milles mots il nous a été très facile de comprendre ton rapport. De plus le fait que tu es pris le temps nécessaire de bien nous l’expliquer lors de notre rencontre ne fait que renforcer notre sélection.
Jeff, ma femme Jocelyne et moi te remerçions encore une fois, et si jamais tu as besoin de références, n’hésites surtout pas à mettre nom sur ta liste !
I was very pleased with Doug. He was very pleasant and thorough and patient. I showed up with my real estate agent, my mom, step dad, and friend so he had some pressure put on him and had lots of questions. He made sure to address everyone’s questions and even had a sense of humour about it 🙂 I appreciated the fact that he drove out and back in a snow storm as well and never mentioned at all that anything was an inconvenience.
Thank you so much for your promptness and professionalism. I appreciate all the hard work.Jennifer McLennon
Yes the house inspection does seem like a long time ago. We are settling in and making this our home. We were so pleased with your service that we will definitely be recommending you to others and reach out to you if we have any questions.
Hope you have a wonderful summer!Frank and Louise
I just wanted to provide some recent feedback on a home inspection my husband and I had done with Cottage to Castle. We were extremely pleased with the service we received from Doug MacDonald. Doug took his time and thoroughly explained all the issues and potential issues that could arise from his discoveries and observations. We found the report that we received to be detailed and highlighted all the issues that we should keep an eye on and what items are in need of immediate attention for safety reasons. We will definitely not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone who is in need of home inspection and Doug far exceeded our expectations! We would highly recommend him to anyone for their home inspection.
Thank youErin & Doug Reeves
Great service. No problem recommending your services. Thank again.Wilfred Gaudet.
I’ve had numerous home inspections conducted over the years in both Canada and the USA, and this one was by far the best I have seen. It was very detailed and provided pictures and clear descriptions of any items that required attention or repair. I was very impressed with the walk-through with Jeff – he provided helpful advice and was able to answer all questions, even though our home has somewhat unusual construction. I would thoroughly recommend Cottage to Castle for any home inspection.Claire Moxon-Waltz
Jeff offers a very good service. Professional and bilingual, a full accounting orally and electronically, important information to know and all that with a beautiful personality. Strongly recommended! Thank you!!!!Martine Doucet
I just want to express my appreciation for the great work your employee, Doug, did during the home inspection of the above property.
Doug was very thorough in his review. I have been very pleased with his professionalism and respect with which he dealt with me. The final report was really well constructed and thoroughly explained to me and any defects and recommendations well explained.
I would not hesitate to recommend Doug to anyone.
Please let Doug know how pleased I was with his service.Linda Doucet
I just wanted to say that I am very impressed with your work and your thoroughness of explanation and putting clients at ease. Your report is also excellent! You have my support!
I know it’s not often we get a pat on the back, so here is my pat on the back and high five.
Keep up the great work!Josette LeBlanc - Exit Realty
Thanks Jeff appreciated! Amazing Inspection! Like your style!
Thank you so very much for all your hard work and attention to detail in the home inspection. It is comforting to know that a capable and competent home inspector has gone through the building and noted all the potential problem areas that need to be addressed. In particular, I’d like to thank you very much for working through the holiday season and preparing such a detailed document.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. I will not hesitate to use your services again for future purchases and will gladly refer your company to friends and others looking to purchase real estate as well.
Happy New Year!

Great experience, we will definitely recommend you.
Your thorough inspection definitely helped to reassure us and provided a fresh perspective. We also appreciate the contacts you gave us for duct cleaning & other services.Matt Carroll
A quality home inspector is a very key part of any real estate transaction. On the last inspection you did for me both the clients and the clients parents pulled me aside on separate occasions to comment on how impressed they were with your knowledge, home inspection skill sets and how thorough your inspections are. You made my clients feel that they were in very good hands and comfortable with the home inspection process.
Keep up the great work!Ryan Davison - Martell Realty
Thanks so much for the detailed house tour, as well as the quick delivery on the report. Once we have a chance to review it we will get back to you if we have any outstanding questions.Judy
First off, thank you so much for scheduling us in so close to Christmas. I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that was a great experience for my clients. I’m always hesitant when referring anyone for the first time, but I’m really impressed with your approach. This transaction has had a number of challenges and I was relieved that you took the time to explain everything to them and slow things down since English is not their first language. Your approach and background as a REALTOR will go a long way in your new venture. I have a stack of your cards and will absolutely be referring your services in the future.
It is a pleasure working with you, and see you in the New Year!
Cheers,Katie Friars Exit Realty Associates
