Read what people are saying about Sound Choice Inspections


George Sharrett was a great inspector, very personable, approachable, welcomed questions, was clear and complete in his explanations. I believe he was thorough in his inspection. He gave me great advice, including a list of his recommended contractors—which will be very valuable in upgrading this 35 year old condo. He planned ahead and brought snacks, water, and a table and chairs for us to sit at while we discussed his findings.

With his advice, I asked the seller to make some repairs, and they will be tearing off the old roof and installing a much better, more professional roof on the addition.

Thank you George so much. Much more generous with your advice and time for my questions than previous inspectors I have had here in Olympia.

I am glad I chose Sound Choice Home Inspections to perform the inspection on property I recently purchased.  George’s decades of experience really come to the     fore in making the entire experience very smooth and effortless for the client.  His report was thorough and informative.  George is reliable and highly skilled.  I give Sound Choice my highest recommendation.

We’d recommend (Sound Choice Inspections)  you in a minute. We thought your service was great, from making the appointment to the final report. The turnaround time was fast and the service professional but warm and friendly at the same time. I had full confidence in your knowledge and abilities, and your experience as a contractor was obvious and a real plus. I feel very fortunate that we were referred to you–a home inspector with integrity, skill, professionalism, technological savvy, and great “home-side manner.”

Thank you for helping us to make an informed decision about purchasing the condo.

I am so grateful to George Sharrett and Sound Choice Home Inspections for the inspection performed on the Unity of Olympia Church buildings.  I knew that we had some deferred maintenance however I didn’t know to what extent.  A group of volunteers and I learned a lot about our buildings that day.  George is a great communicator and educator, which made our experience extremely valuable; and it was enjoyable!  We now have a clear idea of the immediate and upcoming repairs and maintenance issues for our buildings.  By catching some of these repairs now, I know we are saving money and definitely decreasing the drama.

In addition to a thorough inspection of our property, George promptly emailed the easy to read inspection report, complete with colored photos.  This provides a good “to do” list and is easily shared with others in our organization.

Thank you George!  You’re the best!!

George is professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and personable! He has a friendly, approachable demeanor that puts everyone at ease and helps to lessen some of the stress of buying a home. His previous experience as a contractor is a tremendous help; he understands how houses are built and where to anticipate problems. George presents his findings in a clear manner, both during the inspection and in his report. He takes the time to not only answer questions, but to elaborate and make great recommendations. His report is easily read and understood; he marks all his findings as “acceptable, marginal, defective, or a safety concern” then includes the details. The photos in the home inspection report are clear and marked with red arrows, leaving no questions about the problem areas. In short, George is an overall great home inspector and we would highly recommend him for your next inspection!

I first met George around 25 years ago when he was a regular customer at my grocery store: Peterson’s Food Town. At that time he was building houses and doing remodels. He was also an avid mountain climber, climbing throughout North and South America. Prior to becoming an inspector, George called me asking for advice. I encouraged him to get his Washington State Pest license and formal inspection training. Since then I have referred him to many clients. With his background he is a natural as a home inspector. George is very thorough and meticulous during his inspections and has a great rapport with his clients. I feel very comfortable referring him to clients, knowing that they will be very well taken care of.

George Sharrett did the inspection when we bought our house (new) in Olympia. He did an extremely thorough and competent job, far better than inspections we’ve had done in the past. His report detailed the results with photos. He found a number of items that needed completion by the builder, which we would never have found for ourselves. We asked him to come back for an 11-month warranty inspection, and he did a similarly complete and professional job. We recommend him highly.

George Sharrett, Sound Choice Home Inspections, has performed home inspections for multiple clients of mine. All my clients really like that George explains how things work, what’s good, and what’s bad. Clients like his written reports which he provides electronically. The reports include pictures that clearly show what is happening or needs fixed. My clients all say they’ve learned a lot from George. Every time I attend one of his inspections I learn something new. I highly recommend Sound Choice Home Inspections.

I strongly recommend George Sharrett, of Sound Choice Home Inspections, to any consumer or professional in need of the services he provides. I used to use another inspector exclusively, because of the awesome service that my clients & I received from him. When he got out of the inspection business I found Sound Choice Inspections. George hasn’t missed a beat. He is very informative & is willing to explain all of the home’s systems to the client. Most importantly, he is very personable. I look forward to working with you, George, for years to come!

I will definitely refer anyone looking for an inspection to Sound Choice Home Inspections.  George did a quality job on our inspection and even took time to assist me days after the inspection was completed.  Money well spent.
