  • You did a very thorough search and we were rewarded with success. (2017)



    You did a great job today! I was very stressed after having lost this ring, and clearly was in the dog house at home. I deserved it (I guess).

    I appreciate your availability and willingness to come to my home on relatively short notice. Watching your search process was very interesting, and it was clear that you have strong discipline in your process. You did a very thorough search and we were rewarded with success.

    Great job, and thanks so much for helping me find the way out of the “dog house” after a week. I enjoyed talking with you afterward, and hope you continue to have great success in your future.

  • Jonathan. You’re the man! (2016)


    Jonathan. You’re the man!

    I’m the one who called to see if you’d be willing to come out. You went above and beyond driving out to assist us with the lost keys.


  • I cannot begin to thank Jon as well as let all of you know this is a real service and it is definitely a life saver (2016)


    Thank you Jon for finding my sentimental silver ring in the snow!

    I lost my ring, it flew off my hand and landed somewhere in a patch of snow. I googled ring finder Detroit and to my surprise Jon’s name came up.

    I thought why not call and see if he could help because the only way I’m going to find my ring in a couple feet of snow will be with a metal detector. He responded within 15 minutes.

    Very nice man, came over to where I was staying within the hour. Still didn’t know what to expect but was hoping for the best. Jon came and by the time I came back from my errand he found my ring that I had been searching all morning for.

    It was a very special ring to me and this incredible gentleman helped me reclaim a ring that belonged to my mother and when she passed I put it on.

    I cannot begin to thank Jon as well as let all of you know this is a real service and it is definitely a life saver if you are trying to find an item you really do not want to part with.

    I paid what I thought was appropriate and he concurred. Definitely grateful that he came so fast and was able to help me find something that continues to stay on my hand. Thanks again! He’s really great at what he does!!!
