About Our Team

From Alex:

“Everything about the Home Inspection business resonates with who I am and what I enjoy most. I love the challenge of going somewhere new each day, uncovering the minute details that make up a home’s inner workings, and not knowing in advance what I might discover.  Then, I get to communicate my findings with my clients, whether they be realtors or homeowners, in a way they can understand and make informed decisions.  Want to understand how loads transfer down to earth, how heat is made, or electricity operates? That’s the stuff that makes my work rewarding”.

Owner and Operator Alex Steinberg

Innately curious.  Thorough and detailed.  A Natural Teacher.

Alex Steinberg started his career as a home inspector nearly 20 years ago under the tutelage of his uncle, now a well-respected air quality specialist. Soon after, armed with field experience, a passion for details, an unrelenting curiosity about how the physical world works, and a driving entrepreneurial spirit, he founded JBS Home Inspections, Inc.

Before starting JBS Home Inspections, Inc., Alex worked as a motorcycle mechanic, a welder and an elementary school teacher, all professions that require attention to detail, patience, a solid work ethic and a good sense of humor. In addition to his vast experience in the field, these are qualities he brings to his work each day.

A leader in the home inspection community, Alex taught certification requirements at the Building Performance Institute, has lobbied in Massachusetts for more equitable home inspection laws and organized a president’s round table at the most recent ASHI NE conference. He is proficient in the use of all the latest home inspection tools, including thermal cameras, combustible gas detectors and moisture meters, far surpassing the Commonwealth’s requirement for continuing education.

The bottom line is this: you simply will not find a more diligent, hardworking, well-respected and knowledgeable home inspector than Alex.
