Working with Ralph was a breeze. He was very responsive over the phone and text, and he was willing to come out to do an inspection with less than 24 hours notice. Ralph took the time to explain things as we went through the inspection and did not rush through anything. Ralph got us his report the next day and was available for follow up questions. I would highly recommend Ralph to anyone in Brooklyn who needs an inspection done.

I had a great experience with Tom. He showed up early, we ended the inspection early, but it was a very thorough inspection. He caught everything I could've hoped for and was a nice guy to interact with. I know a lot of people in NYC don't get inspectors, but I am very happy with my decision to do so. Highly recommend!

Working with Ralph was fantastic. He was able to come out the next day to inspect, was on time, and was very personable. He walked us through everything, kept it real, and was just overall great to work with. And on top of all that, he was cheaper than the other folks we called! Highly recommend.

This was my first time hiring an inspector. It was incredibly easy to book and was given information up front about what to expect. Ralph was very professional and kind… he even left his shoes outside without me having to ask after seeing I don’t allow shoes in the house. The inspection was informational as the defects were clearly pointed out and I was provided information on how I could potentially fix them. The final report was delivered promptly with photos for me to reference later on. Recommend!

Ralph is fantastic! He is punctual and thorough! He inspected two homes for me and he does not leave any corner or crevice unchecked. His attention to every detail won’t leave you with surprises come closing day. He is also easily accessible, he answers emails and messages for any questions regarding the report. He is the best inspector I’ve worked with and I will be using him for all my future properties!

Ralph was on time, efficient and did a super thorough inspection of our prospective property. He took time to answer our questions, explain everything to us, and gave us tips on how to prevent future potential problems.

Ralph was responsive and explained the entire process to me as first time buyer in NYC. He made sure I saw all the issues that needed to be addressed both immediately and in the long term . If you need a home inspection call him - he is knowledgeable of old buildings,, he is professional, he is honest, and priced right for this service.

Ralph was fantastic and I highly recommend working with him! As a first-time buyer, I was very nervous about the inspection but Ralph made the process seamless. He was diligent and extremely detailed during the inspection and was very patient in answering my many questions. He had a full report to me within 24 hours of the inspection.

Ralph was so professional, friendly, and got us our inspection report on the same day as our inspection! He pointed out things I would have never noticed so I am so thankful to have had this inspection conducted. Our agent also commented that he was awesome and thanked me for introducing him to her. Highly reccomend!

Ralph was great! Very thorough, helpful, and explained everything both while we are at the site and in his report. He also was very patient as the selling agent wasn't able to arrive until 45 minutes after the appointment time. Never complained once. Instead, he was very friendly and professional. I highly recommend his services.

He diligently discovered multiple issues that can now be fixed before closing.Issued inspection report was very professional with many photos and issued within 48h.Next time we do a transaction we will be sure to call Ralph again!

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.

Working with Ralph was a great experience. As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions. Ralph was patient and thorough with me. I would recommend Criterion to others!

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!

Ralph was very professional and responsive. He showed up on time. His rate is fair and his inspection was thorough. I had a report the same day. Great guy to work with.

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.
14:56 26 Mar 22
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.
20:27 28 Feb 22
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.

Ralph is a professional and a very efficient inspector. Quality reporting and fast service. Thorough and easy to work with. Inspected a condo for us and had report back almost immediately. Highly recommend!

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.

Working with Ralph was exceptional. He analyzed every inch of the house and was very meticulous. He was very detailed throughout the inspection process and took the time to pin point to me areas of concern. I appreciated his level of expertise and was very pleased with his service. I would 100% recommend any new home buyers to work with Ralph, I received my report within hours of inspection and he was happy to answer any questions I had! Thank you Ralph!

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 such a pleasure to work with. He responded quickly, and during the inspection, he was not only meticulous but also instructional. He went over all the details with me, answering questions, and giving advice where appropriate. Very professional and would highly recommend!

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!
17:26 25 Feb 21
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!
03:03 18 Jan 21
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!
14:53 07 Jan 21
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
