Your agent should be able to give you a few good inspectors they have worked with in the past.

I would recommend either asking your real estate agent or interviewing several agents from the NACHI website (nachi.org) or the ASHI website (ashi.org).  Speak with them about the types of additional services they provide such as infrared camera and moisture checks.  Also, ask about the report type, some will provide digital reports with pictures and full descriptions and some are still using old style check list reports.  Make sure you are comfortable with the inspector and his/her style.  All inspectors are required to be licensed in Illinois and I always recommend making sure they are insured.
Best of luck.

Sean Bacon X-Cellence Home Inspections Google his info. He was on HGTV & an episode of Nancy Grace, AND he's extremely affordable! :)

Another good place to start is going to the ASHI website (American Society of Home Inspectors). These inspectors are at least certified. Also check out to see if they are a member in good standing with the Better Business Bureau, both are good places to start.

I think if we post a number on here they remove it. Ask your agent for a referral or look on angieslist or yelp.
