A big shout out to Shelly Daley Clark, Nicki, and the team at Cardinal Surveying. Thank you for answering all my dumb questions and providing exceptional service–getting our house staked so quickly even when the weather didn’t cooperate and making sure we had everything we needed to break ground and get our build underway. Totally awesome team to work with!

Sue Hayden Stites

Congratulations to Justin and Danielle on the closing of their new home today. What a wonderful couple to work with. We had some survey issues having to do with the neighbors fence – thank goodness Shelly Daley Clark and her team at Cardinal Surveying discovered that it was over on this property by almost three feet. Boundary surveys are the most protected way to go. Thanks again Justin and Danielle – best wishes for many years in your new place.


You are truly head and shoulders above the rest, I am glad to call you my friend. You and Will are true assets to anyone that works with or knows you.

Cardinal Survey is one of the most amazing companies I have had the pleasure to work with. Professional, courteous and hardworking. They have always taken great care of our clients as well as my own personal survey for my home. They genuinely care about their clients and that comes across in their work.

Very impressed with the low costs and the accuracy of this land surveying team. They quickly helped us document and present a survey to our neighbors who were disputing my fence line and where the easements exist. Thank you for the fast help Cardinal Surveying!

Paula Bross

Love me some Shelly Daley Clark of Cardinal Surveying. Yesterday, she walked me through something on the phone, and today, when we could see the relevant documents, she helped me in less than ten minutes learn how to assist my buyer. The information now makes sense and my buyer is comfortable with the situation. How about that for customer service!!!

Laura Cannon Bieker

The Cardinal Surveying & Mapping Team are true professionals who exert superb customer service and offer nothing less than 100% accuracy. They have an excellent reputation in the industry and always go above and beyond to help their clients!

Laura DeVries

I just wanted to thank you again for your outstanding presentation last night at our ASHI meeting. I learned more from you than any speaker in recent memory. Perhaps it was because your subject was relevant to my profession, but your style of plain speaking, fact based information was well received and appreciated.

10 out of 10 (Google only has five stars to click on)! I was shopping around for flood insurance, and discovered that I needed flood elevation certificates. Shelly and Will Clark helped me through every step in the process, including explaining what the certificates were for, how they could benefit my premiums (or hurt them), scheduling the work, and then walking me through the data on the final certificates. They also discovered one of the properties wasn’t technically in the flood plain, and filed to have it removed, which only took a day! They were extremely prompt in getting back to every email or phone call I placed with them. They were honest, highly responsive, and very customer oriented. I could not have been happier, and will definitely use them in the future when the need arises!

William Hartman

I hired Cardinal to do a stake survey for a fence install. They contacted me immediately after my request and performed the survey within a couple days. The work was very professional and the stakes were placed perfectly and permanently. I was kept well informed through e-mail and my questions were answered completely and in a prompt manner. This company is professional and courteous and I can highly recommend them for residential work.

I refer Will and Shelly at Cardinal Surveying to all of my customers when they are wanting to perform a survey. The staff at Cardinal are courteous, timely, and provide excellent information to my clients. Will and Shelly are also pillars in the community donating their time and efforts to various charities in the St Charles and surrounding areas. If you need any surveying or map, give them a call.

One trend I am seeing that I am concerned about is the number of transactions where the buyer waives ordering a survey. I am concerned because of the survey issues we see and our goal, of course, is to always make sure buyers are protected. I understand the trend and it is based on cost. I know what happens, however, when a buyer who does not get a survey ultimately sells. Their new buyer orders a survey and there are encroachments or other issues uncovered by the survey that adversely affect the new transaction. So, if a buyer does waive ordering a survey, it is important that they have been given the options and have been informed of the benefits of having a survey and survey coverage on their title policy. In any case, it is food for thought and something I think is very important.

Cardinal Surveying is a company that I never think twice about using. Being in real estate, it is important for my client to understand how vital it is to get a survey before purchasing a home. I always use examples of a couple specific situations where Cardinal Surveying has come through for me and saved the day. One situation involved a property that had been conveyed with the wrong legal description 18 times. The previous surveyors and title companies used the wrong subdivision plat. The other situation involved a buyer that was buying a house and 2 lots, however, the title company only had the legal description of one lot. So if Will hadn’t done the survey and noticed this error, then my buyer would have legally only purchased the one lot. In both situations, Shelly & Will, went above and beyond to correct the error and make sure my clients were taken care of. They are so great at what they do! They are charitable, professional and really care about their customers and community…what more could you ask for in a small business! Thanks Will & Shelly for all that you do!
