Ralph was great, and I highly recommend working with him! We asked him to do a radon test in our home in Brooklyn, and the process was very clear and fast. He also took the time to look at another issue for us while he was here, which was very generous and appreciated.

Efficient and thorough. This inspection gave me a good feeling of what is in working / functional order and what I will otherwise need to ensure is addressed before closing.

Ralph was able to inspect our prospective property ASAP. He was thorough, professional and we received our report within 24 hours. The report was clear and concise. Ralph made what could've been a stressful situation, incredibly easy and seamless. Thank you.

Ralph’s knowledge of old Brooklyn brownstones is superior. Twice he has seriously helped me out and he is always on the money. Speaking of which, you will save money if you listen to him. He is patient, kind and funny. He probably can solve some problems on the phone, and he is probably often right. Besides that, he is one of the good guys!

My wife and I used Ralph for an inspection of a new build we close on next week. Ralph was quick to respond and provided sample reports so we could see the detail he offered. After inspection he called to give a rundown of the punchlist report he provided, which was extremely thorough and detailed. We're very grateful for his help and highly recommend his services!

Ralph (the owner and founder) was enormously helpful on a phone consultation I had with him regarding an inquiry I sent by email. He was extremely responsive in getting back to me and clearly was very knowledgeable on the subject matter. He had excellent advice and suggestions which I sincerely appreciated. When I reached out to him, I wanted to pay for a phone consultation but he kindly (and generously) didn’t want payment. I most certainly will use Ralph/Criterion Home Inspections when I have a need for any inspection services. Outstanding client service.

Ralph and his team were super professional throughout the home buying process. They were a voice of reason as I felt the realtors were only out to make a quick sale; CHI was a valuable asset because we had professional eyes, without a dog in the fight, to guide us in determining if this house was sound structurally without unforeseen costs down the road.They were very communicative and straightforward and we learned a lot through the process which made us informed buyers. Highly recommend them to any home buyer.

Ralph was excellent and very professional. He was extremely responsive from the very beginning, punctual and extremely thorough throughout the process. At the end of the inspection, I felt confident moving forward with my apartment purchase knowing that Ralph had completed an in depth inspection. I highly recommend using Ralph for any home inspection needs that you may have.

Ralph was recommended to me from a friend. I would 100% call him again. I had to change inspectors last minute but didn’t want to cancel on the seller as they are motivated to sell. Ralph answered my text early morning and was able to make a same day appointment. I was completely satisfied with his thoroughness and final report. Outside of the inspection he was also providing great tips for a first time home owner.

I hired Inspector Mr. Ralph Hassard to inspect my CO-OP I am purchasing on February 10, 2022. He was punctual. He's very professional. He explained every detail of what he's inspecting. The invoice he presented to me was excellent. Every picture he took he explained the issue. I would recommend him to my friends and family.

It was a pleasure working with Ralph. He was able to get into the unit the day after I called (for a new condo purchase). I felt confident with Ralph's report and he was very kind answering our questions both in-person and after the inspection. I am glad I connected with Ralph and will be sure to recommend him to anyone I know that needs a home inspection!

Ralph was extremely helpful and prompt. Within 3 hours of contacting Criterion, we booked and confirmed our appointment for the next day. He was extremely through in his inspection and report. He definitely put our mind throughout this process! If you are looking for a peace of mind in home search process, Criterion is the way to go.A+A

It was great working with Ralph. He was very knowledge and easy to communicate with during the inspection. I found that he was very good at explaining the issues he found in layman terms. He was able to pinpoint the issues which needed to be fixed immediately vs. areas which would need potential maintenance later down the line. It was very easy to schedule an appointment and he was the only one who was able to accommodate a late afternoon inspection. I received the inspection report in less than a day with all the things we discussed during the inspection. His pricing was also very reasonable given the size of the property. Highly recommended!

It was a pleasure working with Ralph. He was super knowledgeable and was eager to answer every and all of our questions and concerns. He wasn't just inspecting the house for general things, he was assessing the overall health of the house. He saw plenty of things that I would never have seen and was very helpful telling me how/when I would need to address issues. Scheduling the inspection was easy and he was always very responsive. He was able to turn around the report in less than a day, having it to me the morning after an afternoon inspection. Would highly recommend working with him!

Ralph was very friendly, professional and on-time even on a snowing day. I am impressed with his attentiveness and detailed orientation. He was quick to point out the areas of concerns during the home inspection and I learned a great deal from him. His report was sent to me on time. He is also a good business person with great networking and knows his stuff. I would definitely need his service again in the future. If I could give 6-stars, I would!

Ralph was so helpful with our new construction inspection. He patiently explained what items we should ask to get fixed within our contract, and which might need a long-term fix to watch out for. His report was so thorough and I particularly appreciated how he marked the issues with painter's tape, which helped us see everything at once and prioritize what to include in the contract. Would highly recommend Ralph for any inspection!

Ralph was punctual and extremely professional throughout the inspection. He gave me great feedback about what he observed during the process and provided a detailed report later that night. He gave me a fair price and over delivered. Would not hesitate to recommend or use again!

Ralph was great! Easy to schedule with, punctual, and - most importantly, extremely knowledgeable. He took the time to answer our many questions, and identified lots of things that we'd never have spotted without him. He turned around the final inspection report extremely quickly, and with great detail. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ralph to others
