Charleton and his crew are nothing short of AMAZING. Beginning with the first phone call and ending with the end of our walk thru at my house inspection, I was treated with real, genuine, sincere care and concern for my family and our new home. Not only is he an expert at what he does, he takes pride in his work and is very detail oriented. He is super friendly and very down to earth, all while maintaining extreme professionalism. I literally want to buy another house just so I can have him do our inspection again. You will not be disappointed by choosing him and his crew for your needs!!

Very thorough inspection. It's clear Charleton is passionate about his work. The final report was extremely complete and very helpful with making decisions regarding the purchase of our new home. I highly recommend First Choice Home Inspectors. I almost never write reviews; but this service was good enough that I will put five stars on this one.

I was truly pleased with the service provided by Charleton Goodwin of First Choice Inspectors. Upon arrival the professionalism and courteousness of the inspectors stood out. Each item was properly explained as immediate repairs or general maintenance. The additional materials provided also added a check sheet for future references to keep your home in the best condition possible. Mr Goodwin and his team were very thorough and detail oriented. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their service. First Choice was the best choice!

Great service & quality! The professionalism started with the first phone call & has continued throughout my experience with First Choice! The scheduling of my new home inspection went smoothly. They were on time & had everything needed to complete the job. I had a thorough, high quality report in my hands within 24 hours of the inspection. I couldn't be happier with the service. Highly recommended.

As a realtor, I was pleased that this company was very responsive to my client and was able to get the inspection scheduled within two days, even in this busy market. They were also very quick to get the report to my client. My client also wanted a rador test and this company also do this test. Very satisfied.

Clinton and Charleton were the best to work with. They were very thorough with their inspection and explained everything to me. Went over and showed me exactly what needed to be addressed. i highly recommend First Choice Home Inspectors.

He walked us through everything and answered all the questions we had. Very thorough and made it easy to understand what we were looking at and recommended other possible inspections we might want/need and why. On time, professional and honest about what he could and couldn’t do. His report helped us make a better decision for our family.
16:04 23 Dec 19
The company is excellent. Charleton is a very knowledgeable guy and will go over and explain to you exactly what he sees. This is the second inspection he has done for me and I will call him on the next one.

I am so happy I called around and went with First Choice. For us, it wasn’t about the best quote, but about the most trustworthy and thorough home inspection company. I believe you can tell a lot through a phone call, and each conversation I had was great, and ultimately why I decided to go with them, along with the great reviews. (Plus, it helped that they were one of the lowest quotes we received.) They were thorough and polite in explaining everything, and the warranties they offer was an added bonus! They were able to come out the next morning! Wow! I showed up towards the end of the inspection, and was provided a thorough explanation of everything that the report would list. They also walked through the house to show me things, and even taught me how to use the gas burning fireplace! I love that they explained even the smallest of repairs that needed to be done, like a slow draining sink due to clogged hair. That shows me that they really do a thorough inspection making sure you’re buying a great home! I will never use another company for my home inspections. Trustworthy, kind, and thorough! What else could you ask for?

Very Detailed, very informative, and very professional. They were able to help us next day and completed inspection promptly. Highly recommend!
11:47 10 Nov 19
I was very pleased with the amount of knowledge and expertise that the team had. They were very professional, through, and took the time to inspect my home from top to bottom. I would definitely recommend First Choice Home Inspectors. Thank you so much!

Charleton is a super nice guy. He was very thorough and explained what he was looking for those not familiar with the process. I am new to the area and was looking for some help to work on my home. Charleton provided good recommendations and references for other professionals from personal experience, if needed. (plumber, electrician, etc.) Aside from doing a detailed inspection of the home and providing a very easy to read and understandable report, the experience was very enjoyable. I would highly recommend to anyone needing an amazing inspection with great service.

This is a great company. I've used them twice and they are very thorough. Plus they're happy to take the time to explain their findings so you'll feel confident with your next steps.
13:38 13 Oct 19
Charleton was very personable and very, very conscientious. His inspection was extremely thorough and written explanation clear and educational. We have no hesitation recommending him. Also, being new to the area, we love the suggested vendors list he provided.
14:44 26 Sep 19
We had a great experience with this company and I would definitely recommend them to friends and family. Charleton, was our inspector and he went above and beyond explaining everything. He is truly a top notch professional! My family and I thank you from the bottom of our heart because we now feel comfortable and safe living in our new home.
23:51 17 Sep 19
Charleton was Amazing! He came to do an inspection for my apartment on a mold issue and he came on a Saturday before 8 a.m. no less to take care of everything for me. Super nice guy with an extensive knowledge on what's what for home inspections. Overnighted my results too. For sure top notch service. Aces in my book Sir. You can't go wrong choosing First Choice!

As a realtor I have dealt with a lot of inspectors and none of them have been as in-depth to explain the process to the home owners and explain what they needed to do in the future to maintain their home. I plan to call or recommend him to all my clients in the future. He takes pride in his work and enjoys what he does and it about helping people not about making money that motivates him
16:10 27 Aug 19
Charleton is quite knowledgeable and will walk you through the inspection process. His reports are easy to read and understand and give you tips for future maintenance. I had two small issues that came up; he did not inspect the garage the first time out (we were very excited about this garage!) but came back another day and gave us that report. And the inspection report suggested a dedicated 220 volt outlet for a dryer that we requested of the home sellers. The dryer was gas (I had no idea). But thanks Charleton for a good experience! I do feel his personality shines through and he takes his job quite seriously. He is very friendly, just a great person and quite accommodating to my schedule.

Charleton was fantastic. I walked through the house during the inspection with him and he was very thorough and explained what he was looking for and why. He gave helpful tidbits along the way. He offers a variety of recommendations for other companies and states that you don’t have to use any of them and never feel pressured to. The report he gives is very detailed and thorough with tons of pictures. Great owner and a great inspector. Highly recommend.
01:00 02 Aug 19
Charleton did an extraordinary job walking me through his entire inspection process for my first home purchase. This experience was invaluable and more like a training class included with the inspection. I'd highly recommend Charleton to new and experienced buyers alike.
12:44 30 Jul 19
Charleton Goodwin was very thorough in his inspection. He has a great personality for the job and you can definitely tell he loves his job! He went the extra mile to ensure EVERYTHING was carefully examined and explained everything as he went. I feel very confident in his work and I know we, as New home buyers, made an excellent choice.
14:43 10 Jul 19
On time, friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the work. The detailed report is great with photos of every major item. Highly recommended!
14:48 09 Jul 19
Charleton and his crew was phenomenal. I purchased a home while I was still living in Louisiana. I hired them to do the inspection. Charleton stayed in constant contact with me, he was very thorough and provided detailed documentation. When I purchased the home, I felt comfortable going through with the purchase based solely on his inspection. I highly recommend him and his company.
13:53 07 Jul 19
First Choice Home Inspections provides an AWESOME Home Inspection. Very detailed, easy to follow. I will certainly be using them for anything in the Area that our Company buys in the future. Nice work !
20:35 28 Jun 19
I had Charleton Goodwin as my Inspector and was very pleased with the information and findings with his report on the home. Everything was easy to understand and the Inspector gave suggestions about each group of findings.
14:18 24 Jun 19
I couldn't be more pleased with the professionalism and level of detail that went into our inspection. They explained everything that they found, good and bad, as well as sending us a detailed report. The staff was very respectful to the home by wearing shoe covers and other gear as not to dirty or damage the home.
04:44 15 Jun 19
Charleston is very thorough in his inspection. Very friendly guy loves to talk and will answer any questions you may have. He really made us feel, as the new future home owners, he had our best interest in mind. Really just a all around great guy.
12:02 14 Jun 19
Great service. Charleton and his team did an awesome job, they gave a good description on details and insights. Very patient with explaining and answering questions. This was my second time doing business with them, so that says the first time went well, and I look forward to doing business with him and his company again. I would most highly recommend these guys
10:51 02 Jun 19
Charleton was our inspector and he was great! Very knowledgeable and informative with the process. And he provided plenty of pictures with findings. Thank you all so much!!!
14:08 28 Apr 19
Can't say enough about Charlton and his team. Setting the appointment was very easy, and I was able to get the inspection done in only 2 days, which was great!I had specific questions about the house I was looking to purchase and wanted to speak with Charlton himself because I was told he was a mason. Charlton called me personally and answered all my questions in a very direct manor, which I appreciated!I've had inspections before when purchasing a house so I can say from experience that this was much more thorough and complete. I can't imagine he missed anything. He took the time to explain everything to me as we walk through and around the house. I had the feeling that there was genuine concern for my well being and I will certainly be using Charlton again!He is a few dollars more expensive then his competition, but I am very confident that is a few dollars well spent. The home inspection is not something I wan't to go cheap on and I believed he more than earned every penny. The home inspection is not something you wanna cut corners on. Great job! Great guy! I would recommend him to anyone with confidence.
11:58 25 Mar 19
Charlton did an awesome job. Thirty page detailed report and the flash drive of pics of the I was going to buy n Decherd. Well worth the money. Charlton saved me thousands. Without the report I would have bought the house. Since the report found was very detailed I made the decision not to buy the home. It would be cost to much to get the home to my standards. Thank you again Charlton when I find another home I'm interested in buying I will b calling you again. Thank you again for being an honest business man with morals. It was quite refreshing to meet someone who isn't just out for the money.
17:46 16 Mar 19
Charleton made the inspection process so easy. I really appreciated him taking the time to answer all question we had day of inspection and even after! I would highly recommend and will be using his services for any future needs! He truly cares about his customers. Thanks Charleton!
17:44 16 Mar 19
Charleton was exceptional and exceeded all expectations. I would strongly recommend him to friends and family. he was extremely thorough and timely with his inspection!!!
13:26 10 Feb 19
Charleton is extremely professional and knowledgeable, performing the inspection with great care and in careful detail. He goes far beyond expectations, offering several useful tips and opinions that really make you feel that he is genuinely concerned for my awareness and well-being.
14:52 31 Jan 19
Great company! We live in NJ and are buying a home in Tennessee and by recommendation from our realtor we used First Choice Home Inspection to inspect our home. We were shocked when we got the inspection report how thorough it was. He even told us how many light bulbs were out in the house. He caught things that we totally missed when we were in the home the week before even noticing a chip in the master bedroom window. Thanks so much! Highly recommend!!!
16:27 23 May 18
Charleton is the best home inspector in middle Tennessee! This guy has a passion for what he does, and on site he was amazing! They gave us warranties, free alarm installation, and a bunch of other perks that no other firm has! I highly recommend Charleton and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. They also have Radon and Mold testing too.
14:49 16 May 18
Charlton is always on "my" side with my interests and needs primary. My satisfaction is the upmost. Prompt, accurate, thorough, professional. Goes beyond just doing a job. I have a great realtor and inspector for my house purchase.
02:16 08 May 18
The owner is amazing. We bought a home that is very rural and needed someone ASAP. Be had no problem coming all the way out to do it on a weekend and short notice. He was extremely thorough, polite, and explained everything in great detail. I LITERALLY have zero complaints. Would highly recommend too anyone.
00:52 02 May 18
Charleton and Solomon were the right choice for us! They were prompt, thorough, friendly, and our report was delivered before their promised 24 hour turnaround. Worth every penny, and the only Inspectors to use in middle Tennessee!

First Choice Home Inspectors did an excellent job with my home inspection. The duo are both very thorough and take their time to make sure they examine every potential issue in your home. They also have great personalities and character. If you are looking trustworthy home inspectors in the Nashville area, please look no further. This should definitely be your "First Choice"!

I would recommend them to any looking to buy a home or someone just wanting to make sure there home is up to date.

We just purchased our first home and cannot imagine the experience without Charleton. He was thorough, professional, punctual, and extremely kind. He is very safety conscious so when he goes through your home he's always looking out for you. He educated us so much on our home so we felt very prepared to maintain it well and keep it in perfect working order. If you need a home inspected, I highly recommend trusting Charleton with your needs!
16:19 26 Sep 17
Charleton and Solomon are the best! These guys provide warranties unlike all the other inspectors, FREE alarm installation, and all the other extras that just made our decision easy! These are the only home inspectors in middle Tennessee to call when you are buying a home or property.

They did such a FANTASTIC job!!! They explained all their findings to me, while they walked me threw it all!! Very thorough and friendly :)

Charleton inspected our new home for us while we were in Florida. We were able to book the appointment over the phone, paid online, and our report was ready within hours. His inspection played a significant role in our purchase. We would recommend his company to anyone needing a home inspection or a great home inspector.
