    I am a 100% satisfied first time First Advantage customer. Wade arrived on time, was very thorough with his home inspection, highly professional and pleasantly very personable as well. I did a lot of research prior to hiring First Advantage and could not be any happier with both the business experience and my very comprehensive highly detailed home appraisal that was emailed to me promptly as promised the very next day in PDF format and by request, a complementary mailed printed copy was included as well. If anyone needs an honest and accurate very comprehensive professional home appraisal, I highly recommend hiring this second-to-none in the industry home appraisal company. Thanks Wade. It was a genuine pleasure doing business with you. If I ever need another home appraisal or meet anyone else who needs one, expect to hear back from me or them again. Best wishes to you and your family.

    Was prompt, professional and answered all of my questions. Would definitely recommend. Offered to answer any more of my questions after his departure. Out of the four (4) Home Advisor appraisal services that I selected for a quote, First Advantage was the only one that responded.

    HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

    HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.
    To find more licensing information for your state, visit our Licensing Requirements page.

    Seal of Approval

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
      HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
