Matt Cottenham General Manager at Trademark Inspection Services, LLC

Matt Cottenham

When I started the company I had a couple of visions I wasn’t willing to compromise on. First, was to provide not only the most accurate and thorough inspection around but to also provide a top notch customer experience. Second, was to create a company and atmosphere I would want to work at by continually showing every team member how much they are valued. In the last 11 years I feel we have accomplished just this. Though we could have grown quicker, as a team we were never willing to compromise our integrity. I am proud to be part of this great team.

I enjoy talking to the customers and getting excited for and with them. Buying a new home is  a happy but stressful time. When I congratulate the client they get very excited. I like being a part of that excitement if only for a few minutes.

I think that maintaining a whatever it takes attitude to all requests sets us apart from our completion. I try to convey that message to all networking groups I deal with. I like to play golf and bowl, I am in leagues for both. I enjoy supporting the company wherever I can. Although we have not been able to, we do like to travel. I really like family gatherings, as we get older it seems harder to get everyone together. This may sound boring but we get by.

As a Realtor with 18 years of experience, I have attended (too many to count) private home inspections with an array of inspection companies.. AND “Trademark Home Inspection: is by far the BEST..  Their Inspectors and Office Staff are personal, knowledgeable and experienced in the field. The Owners are hands on and always available. The resources they offer even after the inspection is astounding; on their website: database of “trusted” contractors, DIY info and MORE. If you need to refer to your inspection report years later they are always willing to help.  The Inspectors explain in detail their reports and educate the buyers and/or sellers (about repairs, maintenance of the home) , the pictures and videos are high quality that are attached to the inspection reports. “It’s one stop shopping” with Trademark from just a basic inspection to sewer scopes, mold testing, pest inspection and more. And YES I have personally used them on homes that I have purchased.

Nevin Hill

The decision to refer Trademark to my clients is a no brainer. I have had the pleasure to work with their entire team over many years on over 100 transactions. They are honest, responsive and high-level. Exactly the caliber of service my clients expect of me. Trademark’s inspectors are especially fantastic at helping already nervous buyers understand that no home is perfect and are able to deliver not so great news clearly and professionally. I am not looking for a home inspection company to help “keep the deal together”. I am looking for a trusted advisor that both myself, my team and my clients can rely on. Trademark is that trusted advisor. It also helps immensely that Trademark can do it all…from the basic home inspection, radon testing, wood destroying pest inspection, mold/air quality testing, sewer scope and recall check. One stop shop to make it easy for both me and my clients. I am sincerely grateful to have Trademark as such a valuable resource!

As a local realtor I choose Trademark Inspection Services because they truly care about their clients and the home they are buying. Every inspector is very thorough and takes the time to check absolutely everything. They then take the time to go over any issues or concerns they see with the buyers at the end of the inspection. If they notice something during the inspection, they let the buyer know immediately. They also offer a 90 warranty on their inspections which is not like any other company. They also check all appliances for any recalls so the buyer is aware. They definitely offer you any information needed to make sure the buyer is satisfied and purchasing the property with confidence.
