Dear Charlie,

Thanks again for the great home inspection. I appreciate all the time you took in the house & then over the phone with me. The pest inspector was thorough, relatively inexpensive, & I feel he gave me an honest evaluation without trying to use the pest inspection as a sales call. Anyway, thanks again.

Sincerely, L.M. – Lynnfield, MA

From LinkedIn:

“Charlie Ricker is one of the most knowledgeable, professional and diligent people I have ever known. He leaves no stone unturned. In his profession, his reputation for excellence and experience precedes him. I have used his services as a home inspector and radon mitigator and can personally attest to his consummate thoroughness and professionalism. My two experiences with Ricker Associates were highly informative and very beneficial to my business and to my family. His in depth knowledge of the complete home environment, including radon systems and mold assessment and removal, certainly paid off for us. When it comes to systems installation, Charlie and his company are craftsman and painstaking in their attention to every detail. Plus, Ricker Associates follows up on every project to ensure complete satisfaction. Charlie’s integrity and dependability make doing business with him and his company a guaranteed positive outcome. His genuine and caring attitude, his determination to make every assignment a success for all involved, are hallmarks of an individual who always does his best, who is dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of his profession, and who is someone I have come to rely on. I would bet that his entire customer list all feel exactly the same way. I highly recommend Charlie Ricker and Ricker Associates.”
