Cameo was recommended to us by a general contractor and we were so glad to have found him. Larry was awesome!

THANK YOU SO MUCH !!

                                                       ~ M. Peek May 15 2013

I had a very good experience with Cameo Home inspections. Everything from booking an inspection to the delivery of the report was efficient and professional. I especially appreciated the Inspector's explanations to all my questions and certainly learned more about home maintenance from him. I would recommend this company to anyone.

                                                      ~ Mr & Mrs. Cain      April 2nd 2012

As a first time homebuyer, our realtor recommended Jim from Cameo Home Inspections, to help us determine what the condition of the property was in.

Super glad we did! We were looking at a 1905 Victorian Craftsman, which we knew needed some work. Well, turned out it needed A LOT OF WORK. Jim saved us from a true money pit with his comprehensive 70+ page report.

When we found our next prospect property a month later, we hired Jim again. This house was a 1908 Victorian Craftsman. Jim came out, worked over the property, declared it in much better condition house than the first, with mostly routine maintenance, and a few important issues needing to be addressed.

The level of professionalism and thorough detail Jim provided gave us confidence in our decisions. He returned our calls promptly when we had last minute questions. Jim, with Cameo Home Inspections, saved this first time home buyer time and money! Thanks guys!

 ~ Robert R.     June  9th 2019

Larry came to inspect a 24-YO property with a single large outbuilding.  His comprehensive review of the property took over three hours.  I think the prices were pretty reasonable for that much time spent, Zena, and the report itself was comprehensive and clearly written.  His comments tipped us to require additional inspections before we finalized a contract to buy the property.  In comparison to all the reports for property my family has purchased over the years, I would rate the report received from Cameo as one of the best.  Further, Larry has offered to come by to discuss his report when we take possession of the property.  Finally, another plus, Renee was charming on the telephone and extremely helpful.

~ Dint D    Sept 3rd 2019

I had a home built for me over last spring and finished up this past summer when it came time to get a home inspection my realtor suggest Larry, and I am glad I did. HE was beyond professional and was very easy to talk to. At no time did I feel like it was talking down to me or miss leading. To be honest, I think Zena's review is based on not doing research on costs before hiring someone as well as not understanding that you don't need to get on a roof if you can tell it looks bad from the ground and anyways what's the standard for "A lot of life left". Larry went above and beyond what I expected and did an excellent job pointing out things that I would have no thought of looking at or doing. As well as educating me on things I would need to go in the future, and he even offered to come back and do another inspection after the house was 100% complete so that we were covered. I would recommend him any day.

~ Kyler L.   April 2nd 2016 

Working with Larry is always a good experience.  His knowledge, experience, integrity and commitment to his industry are so critical and beneficial to his clients.  He is always willing to do further research as necessary on inspection issues, and an added benefit to me, as an agent, is the clear, timely and professional report he produces.

~ Sue Wise, Realtor
Coldwell Banker, Olympia

 

A great experience from start to finish. Excellent communication from Renee in the office and my inspector, Jim, really went above and beyond for me. He is 100% professional-knowledeable, thorough, no nonsense and personable to boot. Highly recommended.

Larry, having been doing this longer than anyone else in Thurston County, has the experience and education to make accurate and insightful observations. That is why I use them to get a second opinion when dealing with problems or purchasing property. 

As a real estate agent of 13 years, I was trained to give several names when making a recommendation for a service provider. But, when I have the need to recommend a property inspector, I only refer one name, and that is Larry Stamp of Cameo Home Inspections. I am present at all my clients' property inspections. I know when I see a thorough inspection and a poor inspection. Larry performs a thorough inspection and touches all components of the home. He has great rapport with my clients. He provides them with extra information they need to know to properly care for their new home. And when he finds a problem, he calls it as he sees it, and that is what he gets paid to do. The part an inspector plays in the home sale/purchase process is quite significant and a key component to protecting your investment, and Larry plays his part very well. Thanks for all your hard work, Larry.

I really like to recommend Larry Stamp @ Cameo Home Inspections to all of my clients.  His honesty and excellent communication skills make the home inspection a pleasant experience for my clients.  He calls it as he sees it and is very willing to explain things that make it easy for my clients to understand.  My clients have all expressed a positive reaction to the home book he provides, also.  I have worked with Larry for about 3 years, and even used him on my own purchase of a rental home."
