Letter From Attorney Daniel J. Veerman
I’ve been an attorney in Massachusetts since 1992. I’m currently practicing with a firm whose main focus is residential and commercial real estate, representing lenders, sellers and purchasers of properties throughout eastern MA.
My initial experience with Dennis Robitaille was when I purchased my first home many years ago. I resisted the initial impulse to “go cheap” with one of the checklist home inspection factories so favored by the real estate broker profession. Dennis was recommended by another attorney who insisted I use his home inspection service. This singular decision saved me literally thousands of dollars over the years and my professional association with Dennis directly benefited countless numbers of friends, family and clientele.
An example of the faith I had in Dennis was the fact we engaged his services numerous times over the years. His keen attention to detail and thorough evaluation of each of these properties not only prevented us from buying into a number of serious headaches but directly resulted in finding our dream home. It was extremely comforting to know my home inspector worked only for me and had no interest in cementing a deal or glossing over a problem with a home in order to keep the broker who refers him business happy.
Dennis also assisted my family and clients by identifying troublesome issues with a property which become the subject of negotiation with the sellers, saving thousands of dollars. His detailed narrative reports were so useful, most of my clients tell me they used them as a reference tool for years after they purchase their home.
In sum, I was extremely fortunate to know Dennis. Being present at his inspections was a learning experience in itself, and alone worth his fee. For years I referred everyone looking for a professional licensed home inspector to him. It is particularly telling that not only have I never heard a complaint, every single person has contacted me afterwards to rave about his service. I recommend Able Home Inspection wholeheartedly without any reservation, as his son Evan, now carries on the excellent service.
