Mark was very prompt, professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. He took the time to fully explain everything he found in the inspection, and gave us recommendations on what to do about each item. Highly recommended.  Chris Herzberg


Your inspection of my Dad's house allowed me to make all the repairs prior to having an appraisal of my own and putting it on the market. Mark's inspection of a home I was interested in on <street address> helped me decide to back out of my offer (excellent call). Kudos to Mark! Give him a raise 😊   Theresa Nalty


Mark did a thorough inspection of a new home and I received a detailed report within hours of the inspection!  Samantha Yin


Mark inspected our home during option period and inspected our roof after we purchased our home. Mark was very knowledgeable and provided a very professional, impartial assessment of our home. He was very kind and took his time during the inspection to explain things to us. He was also very responsive and open to providing his contact information. After our inspection, he gave us advice on how we should proceed with the home sellers. I would highly recommend Fox Inspections and Mark especially!!  Alexander Bui


Mark Denton with Fox Services did a wonderful job inspecting our condo, AND he got us the report in just a few hours. Thanks Mark and Fox!  Traci Vogiatzis


Sandy Tello Review


Went well and received good responses from inspector on materials and new home construction work already done. Also received tips about other construction questions, such as drainage from next door homes and possibilities for attic storage spaces, as well as things to look for and be aware of when stucco is added to exterior. The inspector was focused on completing a checklist and taking pictures, but once done, he provided a verbal summary of his finding, and was open to any and all questions we still had. We had a completed written report (email and text) within 4-5 hours. Mark Denton was experienced and efficient, and looking forward to using Fox for our final inspection before closing.  Sandra Tello


Mark Denton was very professional and thorough with our home inspection, he explained in detailed the major issues of our potential buy. We also used the pool and HVAC inspection from Fox. I highly recommend Fox Residential Services Group to do all your home inspections!  N Chin


My wife and I just left our inspection with Mark. Mark was great, thorough and honest! The house had much more bad than good. While our realtor is going back to see what can be done we will likely be pulling our offer. I know you have a buyer protection plan where it's $100 off the next home, is there a time limit to that? i.e. 7 days, 14 days etc? Steve Schnell (Office Reply: the Buyer Protection Plan $100 Off the next inspection is good for 90 Days.)


Mark did a wonderful job. His response was timely professional and thorough which is everything one would look for in a home inspection. I would surely recommend this service to home buyers if asked.  Bryce Whittle


I used Fox Inspections for a structural inspection shortly after having my house leveled.  My inspector, Mr. Denton, was detailed, extremely knowledgeable and communicated the workmanship errors and issues clearly.  He took time with me and my house, obviously cared about the condition of my home and followed up with me promptly.  I am most grateful to him for uncovering the critical issues and deficiencies that I could not possibly have seen hidden under the house, as well as, those that required a trained eye to spot. Elle B


Mark Denton was very thorough and detailed with the inspection report. I highly recommend using Mark for a home inspection. Sean Weigner


I always recommend Fox for my clients as I am in the real estate business, but this time I hired them for a home I am considering to buy.
I was pleasures to hire Fox for the general home and stucco inspection. The process to schedule an appointment was very easy and the team in the office are very easy to work with.
Mark Denton done a very thorough general home inspection. He came on time and started the work right away. After he finished, he took his time to go through the report. The next morning we received the formal report and it covered all our needs.
Riccardo has done the stucco inspection. He as well has done an outstanding stucco inspection and took the time to review the report with us and provide his recommendations.
Keep it up Fox inspection. Haitham Rabadi


Mark D. gave us a detailed, informative report of our house including photos. We were not able to attend the inspection and had many questions. He answered them all patiently and effortlessly. Mark worked with our realtor and then we all had a conference call while he was still at the house in case we needed him to check anything else. We were very satisfied with the efficiency and thoroughness Fox provided. Also, they helped set up a termite inspection that was also satisfactory and convenient. Michele Dressendorfer


I'd like to personally thank Mark for the pre-pour inspection.  Mark was extremely thorough and explained the issues with my wife and I in detail.  Mark went above that and helped me understand what I need to do should the builder refuse to repair detrimental issues.  I'm sending you this email because I think it's important to know when you have a good employee who goes above and beyond.  Thanks again and we'll be in touch for the next phase. Adam & Cynthia


Mark was our inspector: he did a great job. He was very knowledgeable and was able to point out pertinent items to notify our builder before final walkthrough! The report was very detailed and timely! Would use them again. Matt Lines, 832-454-4244

Stefani was very helpful and professional in getting the inspection scheduled quickly and at a time that worked for me. This is the second time we've used Fox Inspection - the first time for our primary residence and this time for an investment property.

In addition to the inspection itself it was very easy to schedule the inspection quickly and in a time that worked for me. Contact info for drawing - Allyson Caire

We were very impressed with how thorough the inspection was. We felt our inspection was important to the inspector, Mark. We felt that he was looking out for our best interests and that we could trust him. He went over everything in his report in a very friendly, professional manner with just the right amount of detail to inform us but not overwhelm us with items that may not need immediate attention. Thanks again, Mark! Kit & Grace Williams

Very good Service and Mark Denton was a great inspector.  Devang Mehta


We had the pleasure of working with Mark Denton as our inspector. This is the first home that we have built from the ground and it is especially dear because we also intend it to be the home where we retire. Mark was very thorough and explained every aspect of the inspection in detail. I appreciate his patience in ensuring that I understood the technical aspects and ramifications that could ensue should certain issues not be properly addressed. As I have no technical knowledge of the building process I appreciate his plain talk delivery instead of a lot of professional jargon. His patience and kindness speaks volumes and I truly felt that he wanted to ensure that we received a quality product for our home. There is nothing different or more I can possibly imagine for the inspection process.  Cynthia Turner


Mark was very thorough and efficient. We did not buy the house because of the issues Mark uncovered. We thank Fox for saving us from future problems.  Keith Thompson


I want to thank the services of your team today and the efficient delivery of these reports. We are extremely pleased with their thoroughness and Mark did a great job of explaining his findings and walking us through his report. Dana Buchan

Mark Denton and Shawn McCleney did a great job diagnosing our AC problems on 6/11/16. Thorough diagnosis and very professional, with well documented findings.  Pat Bodin


Mark was very thorough - I was pleased with the entire group - despite the crazy weather. I'm bummed the house didn't work out - but thanks you guys, I'm not buying a lemon! Alex Winn


Inspector Mark was great. He brought snacks and drinks and was very thorough. David Ogletree


We had both a general house inspection and a termite inspection on a house that we're purchasing. Both were incredibly professional and very informative. Mark Denton was our inspector and I appreciate his attention to detail, and his taking the time to go through everything with us. He also followed a couple of days later to make sure we didn't have any additional questions. While some of the things he discovered sounded a little scary to us as first time home buyers, he was able to settle our nerves by explaining what should be expected for a house of that age and why most weren't as scary as they initially seemed. I would definitely refer my friends and co-workers to Fox for all of their needs and plan on calling for AC service as soon as we take ownership. Karin Rabe


I recently had a home inspection performed by Mark Denton on a new construction. His work was very thorough and he made him self available to discuss the details as soon as the report was completed. Despite me not getting back to him until about 9:30 on a Friday night, he took time to go over the report and answer questions. Unfortunately, there were code violations and multiple other concerns that were uncovered during the process. We live in CA and obviously have many obstacles trying to purchase a home over 2000 miles away. We have encountered lots of resistance with everyone we've interacted with during the process except for Mark. His attention to detail and objective assessment of the home has fostered confidence in our decision making. The well being and safety of my family is my first priority. Mark's work has helped make sure that the things most valuable to me remain protected. He was very diplomatic in his presentation of the code violations and items of concern, while still making sure that we understood the importance of the findings and what components were priority. 

 In closing, we are very appreciative for Mark's work and are confident you realize what an asset he is to your business. 

 Best Regards,

Mark with Fox Residential Services inspected a home for me yesterday. They were very professional. Mark showed up on-time and stayed until the job was complete.

Byron performed the termite inspection yesterday as well, and he called me this morning to follow up. I highly recommend Fox Inspection Services for Home Inspections.Kelly Land

Mark Denton did a great job on my home inspection!  Ben Yoesel


Had a great experience. All the inspectors were friendly, knowledgeable and were not agressive with sales pitches (only offered when I asked). Mark Denton was my lead inspector and I appreciated the time he spent with me to explain the findings and what could be fixed easily vs what would need a professional's attention.  Michael Kerby


Mark Denton recently completed an inspection for us. He was great!

We were very pleased with the inspection that was done on a property we were looking at. Mark Denton did a very good job & took the time to explain all of his findings and answered all our queries. The report was very thorough and professional and had detailed description and photos. We received it early the next morning which was really very fast. I would definitely use Fox Inspection Group in the future and will recommend them to friends and family. Totally worth the money.  Mahesh Kurup


Very good and thorough inspection. And also a speedy typed response. Makes buying an old home less worrysome. Mike, Mark and John were all great.  Chuck Tanner

Mark was the best and extremely knowledgable- highly recommend! Jessica Meyer



The report was perfect, provided all the supports we needed to understand, and gave us a great to-do list of items we never would have thought would need to be remedied.

I'll be sure to email you to let you know whether the sellers will be fixing the big ticket items on the "pig with lipstick slapped on it." 

Thanks again for being so thorough with our inspection. I'll be sure to refer you to anyone I know who is in the market.

All inspectors were wonderful, I told Mark the only thing he could do to make it better would be to pay for my inspection. haha I actually enjoyed having them, they were so helpful.
