What Realtors Say

Dean Bowring with Benchmark Property Inspection has been our inspector for the last 10 years.  We trust Dean with our clients because he takes the time to take care of them by making sure they are aware of the home they are purchasing and how to maintain it.  Dean welcomes our buyer’s questions and presence during the inspection.  He has all the tools to find any issues in each home and offers solutions to the smaller issues.  He makes himself available after each inspection to our buyers for any information they may need at a later date.  Dean is a part of our real estate family and we greatly respect his work.

As an experienced Realtor serving the south Metro Denver area, I have been recommending Dean Bowring with Benchmark Property Inspection to my buyer clients since 2011.  Dean’s attention to detail is top notch.  In the relatively short period of time he has to inspect a home, he manages to study each of the home’s mechanical systems while also taking the time to explain how those systems work to the prospective home buyer.  Dean’s vast home inspection knowledge also tells him when it is time to call in a specialist to do a more in-depth examination, which has helped a client on more than one occasion avoid a home needing expensive repairs.   His property inspection reports are always clear and concise, have many useful suggestions regarding maintenance and upkeep for the future homeowner, and are always provided in a timely manner.

I will continue to recommend Dean to clients looking for a home inspector because of his attention to detail, knowledge, and expertise.

I have had the pleasure of working with Dean Bowring and Benchmark Property Inspection over the past three-plus years.  He has worked with my buyers, evaluated potential personal investment properties and inspected homes I have bought and sold for myself.  In every instance, Dean has exceeded my expectations (and the performance of other well qualified inspectors I have worked with).  Dean’s approach is thorough with attention to detail.  His calm and attentive manner with clients provides them with confidence in his findings, and assurance that they are receiving value for their time and investment.  Every client I have worked with that has employed Dean has been thoroughly satisfied with his report, explanations and answers to their questions.  In a very competitive field, Dean’s Benchmark Property Inspection is at the top of my list and the first inspector I recommend to my clients.

Having Dean Bowring do the home inspection is the most practical business decision a professional agent can make.  Dean is courteous, knowledgeable and an excellent communicator.  His thorough home inspection puts all parties at ease.  The Realtor knows their client’s investment is being thoroughly examined, and the buyer has peace of mind with Dean’s explanation of what is a necessary repair and what is practical maintenance for home ownership.   Dean is a fantastic inspector and a top notch industry expert.

Mr. Dean Bowring with Benchmark Property Inspection has provided my clients with excellent inspection services.  He is very thorough and is helpful to my clients.  I particularly appreciate Dean’s willingness to explain the operations of the various systems associated with the homes my clients are purchasing.  He is always on time and professional.

What Clients Say

I was blown away on the level of expertise and service I got with Dean. He not only was extremely thorough and diligent but knowing I was a first time home buyer he offered me invaluable advice, educational tips, and recommendations throughout the inspection. I had an experienced home buyer along with me that also commented on how he had never seen this level of service in an inspection.

Dean I am so grateful THANK YOU!

I put in an offer on an old Victorian home built in 1888 in Denver.  I ended up getting referred to Dean and his company Benchmark Property Inspection.  He is the owner of his company and it shows as he takes pride in everything he does.  He is not only thorough, but he is knowledgeable beyond belief.  I ended up referring him to my co-worker who just put in an offer and my co-worker said the exact same thing.  He has a very deep knowledge of how houses were/are built from any time period.  

He is also super friendly.  He made me laugh a lot as we were doing the inspection together.  He will involve you as much as you want.  For me, i had 1,000 questions and he not only answered them, he welcomed all of them with great enthusiasm.  You can tell when a person wants to share knowledge with you versus when they have to because it is their job.  Dean is that person who does what he loves and it shows in his work and attitude.  Hire him!

Dean is so personable and easy to get along with. My fiancee and I are first time homebuyers, and went with Dean after a glowing recommendation from a friend. He took the time to not just do his job, but also explain what he was doing and even what we’d need to do if fixes were needed in the future! Highly recommended for others in a similar situation.

– Maddy O

Dean was wonderful to work with! He conducted a very thorough inspection of our new home. He wrote a very detailed report of his inspection and walked us through all of his observations. He let us ask lots of questions and gave us very helpful information. We really appreciated his level of professionalism. We would use Benchmark again and would recommend them to friends and family.

As a first-time homebuyer, I was extremely lucky to have had Benchmark Property Inspection complete my home inspection. I was given a significant amount of time to thoroughly go over my home and understand which areas need to be updated as well as what I can do as a homeowner to proactively care for my new home. Dean is VERY knowledgeable and more than happy to answer my follow-up questions even after the inspection was complete. I feel much more confident purchasing my new home having had the opportunity to learn from him and understand how to care for my new home for years to come.

– Kate S

Everything about the inspection was extremely professional.  Dean was also very personable, which is hard to find in an inspector.  He was very thorough and explained everything above and beyond typical inspections.  His knowledge was vast and his recommendations were noted and appreciated.

From the first moment I contacted your company, I received great customer service.  Erin cheerfully answered my questions about the company.  Dean was very thorough and took the time to explain what he was looking for every step of the way.  You guys show that you take customer service seriously!


Lakewood, Colorado

Dean was outstanding!  His attention to detail and thorough inspection was impressive, providing me with the peace of mind I needed.  His explanation of what to look for and what he found gave me an expanded understanding of home ownership.  There is no comparison to other inspectors – Dean is the best.

Dean is a pro!  This is a man who understands the importance of his task at hand.  He explained all steps taken to insure our comfort with his findings.

Dean was amazing and very thorough.  I hope I never have to do an inspection without him.  Dean took his job very seriously and that was a great feeling for a first time homebuyer.

I was very impressed with the level of customer service, professionalism and attention to detail.  Items were explained in language I could understand.  A distinct notch above the rest!

Highlands Ranch, Colorado

Dean was very thorough during our new home inspection.  The report was detailed and professional.  We had results right away to hand over to the sellers.  Benchmark Property Inspection surpassed other inspections we have had by 200%.  We will call again if we buy in the area.


Thornton, Colorado

In January 2006 I decided to list my home for sale in April 2006.  My realtor told me about having the house pre-inspected and the services of Dean Bowring and Benchmark Property Inspection.

I had my home pre-inspected and quite a few items where discovered that would have been bargaining points for a buyer and would have resulted in a reduced price offer. I chose to fix all of them except the one that would cost $1200.

When I got a contract and the inspector for the buyer did his inspection, he told the buyer’s realtor and I that he had never before inspected a house where he could find nothing wrong (except the big one). Because the house was in such perfect condition, the buyer’s realtor advised the buyer to let the big item go! My home sold for the listed price with no haggling over things that needed to be fixed.

Dean Bowring does the most thorough inspection I have ever seen or could imagine. The findings are presented in a clear, concise and very professional manner. I highly recommend pre-inspection and Benchmark Property Inspection. Pre-inspection gives the seller a real advantage in this incredibly challenging real estate market.

My wife and I recently moved from Wyoming, purchased a home in Westminster, CO and had it inspected by Dean Bowring (Benchmark Property Inspection) prior to closing. Dean did a wonderful job. He performed an extensive and meticulous inspection of our home and left no stone unturned. The inspection was done while we were still in Wyoming; therefore, we were not present at the time. Dean emailed the inspection to us the day he inspected the home and also mailed us a hard copy (in a three ring binder, not a paper folder like other inspections we’ve had performed). Dean then contacted us that day to make sure that we received the emailed inspection and to answer any questions we might have. When we moved in everything in the house was exactly as Dean’s inspection reported it. My wife and I really felt like Dean was working for us, not the sellers or real estate agent like some inspectors we have used. Dean is extremely knowledgeable, detailed and professional in what he does. Both my wife and I would recommend Benchmark Property Inspection to anyone we know. We couldn’t be more satisfied.
