Letters from home buyers, building officials, attorneys, property managers and bankers

*****Fred Sylvester provides a fantastic service. He came highly recommended to my wife and me. His price is extremely fair for the amount of time and professional due care that he brought to our inspection. He is very thorough and leaves no stone unturned. Fred recognized that we were purchasing our first home. He was very kind and helpful in answering all of our questions and explaining his procedures and findings. He provided a fantastic detailed write-up upon the conclusion of the inspection. It also includes contact information for highly reputable, trusted, and licensed contractors/professionals who can help correct any issue you may have or will down the road have as home owners. I highly recommend Fred, and have already passed along his name and contact information to some of my closest friends who are now in the process of purchasing their first home….Jake D. 8/16/16

*****I can't believe how thorough this inspection was! Upon first glance, it looked like the house we were trying to purchase was perfect. Accredited Building Consultants found things I would never have known to look for! Thank you for your extreme attention to detail!!!.Scott & Samantha Baker   8/12/16

*****We were very pleased with Accredited's service. They scheduled my home inspection for the next day. Fred was on site the entire day going thru everything with a fine toothed comb. Then the report was in my Inbox that evening! Highly recommend Fred!!!.....Pauline  8/5/16

*****Fred did us a very good service in inspecting our new home. He was through and personally took the time to explain each area in a very detailed form. I particularly liked his suggestions on what should we watched on an ongoing basis. This was invaluable. We definitely recommend him to anyone…. John Reisdorf 07/14/16

*****The inspection revealed several needs for repair that effect safety as well as water leaks. The information about potential problems and recommendations for maintenance will be very valuable. The wind mitigation report was absolutely worth the price to have done as it will reduce homeowner insurance premium considerablyBarb F.  03/07/16

Hello Fred,

Thank you very much indeed for the inspection that you performed on the property that I am considering to purchase. As a real estate investor this will be the third house that I am purchasing and the third house that I am having inspected. Although your inspection cost slightly more than the inspections performed on my other two properties I am writing to tell you that I am very happy with the amount of information and the details contained in your inspection. After reading your web site I had an idea that your inspection would be much more detailed. When I received your report I was very surprised. I didn't expect you to go into such detail and it really looks like you did a very good job indeed. I have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone needing an inspection. I will be asking you to do all future inspections for my properties.

Regards, Richard Scholey

To whom it may concern,

I have known Fred Sylvester, for almost three decades on both a professional and personal level. I met Fred first through my position as Chief Building Inspector for Lee County. In that position I found Fred to be an exemplary builder, conscientious and paying attention to the smaller details often overlooked in today's construction industry. I also dealt with Fred in his position as the president of the BIA (Lee County Building Association), where we dealt with each other on committees and issues relating to construction, building code compliance and local construction practices. Later, Fred and his company Accredited Building Consultants, Inc became one of the premiere inspection and consulting services, in southwest Florida. I always found Fred to be professional and of the highest integrity.

Because of the aforementioned I found it very comfortable to be associated with him in the formation of Barrier Consulting Group LLC. A company dedicated to providing property inspections requiring precise details. The inspections provide and were for the purpose of establishing appropriate property insurance discounts. I always found Fred to be thorough and complete in his assessment, and exacting in his reports. Although our professional relationship has ended, I have nothing but the highest regard for Fred, his abilities, and any construction related services he may provide.

I have known Fred Sylvester for fifteen years when I hired him as a Consultant Construction Manager to build a house in Gulf Harbour. Since that most positive working relationship, I have used his building inspection services. Fred has proved to be prompt, true to his word, diligent, thorough and honest in everything he does. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking the services he provides.

Hi Fred, Thank you so much for the excellent work you did in the inspection of the home. You saved us from investing our hard earned savings into a money pit... I notified the agent that I was canceling the contract, literally minutes from the expiration of the 7 day under the inspection clause... We will surely use your service when we identify a new property.It's good to know that there are still highly skilled, honest, responsible and extremely professional individuals left in the real estate industry, and you are surely one of the few!Again, thank you for accommodating us and doing this inspection in such a short notice. We wish you and your family all the best! Please do not hesitate to use us as reference.

Sincerely,   Mercedes Jimenez-Ramirez
