Alex performed a thorough inspection of the home we are purchasing and took the time to explain his findings as well as how to maintain the property. The results are summarized in a well organized report with suggested fixes for any issues. He also gave us a book detailing what it takes to maintain a home which is a nice bonus. We highly recommend Alex's services!

Alex inspected our recently-purchased condo in Brookline. He was extremely thorough, both in the unit itself and also inspecting the common areas, boiler, ac and garage. He gave us a detailed report only a couple of days after the inspection and pointed out things to look out for. Altogether a great experience and very helpful.

Undoubtedly the best home inspection assessment and report we've ever had. Alex is No.1. He inspected a commercial property we own - a 3-family 100 yr. old residence. His inspection was thorough and will help us in the future to keep our property in good shape. His report was organized into sections that make it easy to know what needs to be attended to now vs what can wait a bit vs. future maintenance issues. Photos were included of the trouble spots. He gave us information about how to approach maintenance and how to care for equipment that we didn't know. He interacted with our tenants in a friendly and helpful manner and with our caretaker. He called us after we received the report and said he was available to help with any questions we had. We give him an over-the-top outstanding rating. We did this home inspection for our information. It served its purpose and will save us trouble and money in the future.

Alex is fantastic! He was incredibly friendly and thorough, despite the freezing temperatures. He took the time to make sure my husband and I understood all the areas/things he was checking and also made sure we understood what to be aware of and look out for in the future. We got the report quickly and were incredibly happy with the level of service. Would highly recommend using Alex for your inspection.

We requested a full-house inspection because contractors were pushing us to pay for extremely expensive repairs. As Alex examined the house from roof to basement, he explained how the contractors were trying to bilk us, and thereby saved us a considerable sum. Throughout the three-hour inspection, Alex used a variety of high-tech tools to aid visual observations. My husband tagged along and received a master’s course in dealing with an old house’s problems. The extremely thorough final report broke everything down into useful priorities: expensive problems just waiting to happen, what should be done next, areas no longer up to current code, and lesser problems. Throughout all our questions, Alex remained patient, good-humored, highly professional, and explained everything on a level we could understand.

Alex Steinberg is a very fine consultant on basement flooding issues. He is very knowledgeable and offers some really innovative and imaginative solutions to a tough problem. From suggesting we replace shallow wooden gutters to suggesting we reconfigure the slope of the yard to sump pump. suggestions he was extraordinarily helpful to us. He is also very personable and has a great sense of humor. He suggested some very useful contractors to help us with our problems, and was very prompt with follow up when we needed it. I would recommend him without any hesitation whatsoever.

Alex is terrific. His comprehensive, friendly, and detailed review of everything we need him to assess in our property was impressive. he explained everything in easy to remember terms, his report was super-clear, and he answered all my questions. Never rushed, and in the pouring rain, Alex was great.

Alex is very knowledgeable and did a great job in helping us to understand the building issues we consulted him about (HVAC, roofing, gutters, exterior painting) and providing contacts at firms that he has worked with that could help us with the solutions we talked about.

Alex and his team were very responsive, thorough, and professional. He took the time to walk us through the inspection, answering all of our questions and outlining several options for potential updates and repairs. We learned so much about the house and home maintenance during the inspection alone. The home being inspected is quite old and Alex was very knowledgable about various eras of construction, electrical, heating etc. that helped us understand what had been updated when. I highly recommend Alex without any reservations.

Alex was incredibly responsive, and we were able to get hold of him for a next-day inspection. As first-time homebuyers (purchasing an old home!), he perfectly struck the chord of extremely informative on all the basics without ever being condescending. Alex was efficient, personable, and thorough. He really put at ease through the process, and was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend.

I hired Alex from JBS Home Inspections to handle two home inspections for me this spring - one pre-offer and one full. In both cases he was incredibly thorough and responsive, and worked with me and my realtor to find a time that worked for us (both on very short timelines). He was very patient with my novice homeowner questions, and was honest & transparent about what he was seeing in the inspection and what it could mean for me in the future. His experience with homes of all ages and construction was super helpful in producing a meticulous inspection report and providing the context for each issue both homes had, and made me feel much more comfortable with proceeding with my home purchase.Thanks again Alex for all your help & expertise!!

Alex is the absolute best. He did a thorough inspection of a 7 unit resi building leaving no stone unturned. He was patient and knowledgeable explaining everything as he worked through the units. Don’t worry if you don’t catch everything because it’s all detailed in his report. Not only does he have all the hard skills and equipment to do the job, but he is also kind and an overall great guy. AND he is reasonably priced. I will only use Alex as my inspector going forward.

We had Alex come to inspect a home that was under contract and he was amazing. He was thorough and knowledgeable and patiently described every detail to us during the inspection. As first-time home buyers we were very nervous, but Alex made us feel much more confident about the whole process. We would highly recommend him for any home inspections!

Alex was incredibly thorough, meticulous, responsive, knowledgeable, and great to work with. I would definitely hire him again!! He explained all the systems in our house, highlighted where there were risks, and produced a very comprehensive and easy to digest report at the end. His fee was reasonable and he was responsive after the service when I had questions. Highly recommend!

Alex inspected our condo in a 150 year old home, a few months after our purchase to help us look ahead to future repairs. He was very thorough, inspecting both inside and outside the condo. The report was super helpful in pointing out things that needed to be done in the near future, and things to monitor and decide later. Highly recommend for either before your home purchase or later when you might want a heads up to what's ahead in your home!

I recently had my new construction home inspected by Alex of JBS Home Inspections and am very happy that I did. Alex was very thorough in his inspection, and it is obvious that he is quite experienced and adept at what he does. He is also personable, patient, and professional. He answered my many questions and gave us valuable insights about our home. His report is very clear and easy to understand, and I found the color coding and categories helpful. He also left us with a nice “Owners Manual for Your Home,” which is also useful. In short, I highly recommend Alex/JBS Home Inspections!

Alex was knowledgeable, professional, and very thorough. As a homeowner, I was looking for a home inspector who could tell me what to expect in planning for a renovation project. I am so glad that Alex was recommended by my neighbors. He did a three-hour walkthrough of the exterior/interior of my home: poking, prodding, and sizing-up everything from the roof to the foundation, the electrical system, furnace, hot water heater, insulation, structural issues, and even minor issues. One big question that I had was how to make my home more energy efficient in anticipation of installing heat pumps in the future--and he was able to give me some important pointers. Alex produced a full report and a summary report ranging from major deficiencies and safety issues to needed repairs and future repairs. This is precisely the information that I wanted to prioritize work that needs to be done. So, whether you are planning to buy, sell, or renovate your home, I would definitely recommend Alex at JBS Inspections.

We recommend JBS Home Inspections, Inc. without any reservations.

We used Alex for a home inspection for fairly new construction, but Alex was still very thorough. He even pointed out things to watch for our future neighbors. He also explained about how every system work, and what to pay attention. It was a very educational experience for a first time home buyer. We highly recommend him.

We used Alex for our home inspection and were incredibly impressed by how thorough, patient, and knowledgeable he was. He got into every corner that he possibly could have and took detailed notes while also educating us about what he was seeing. He was communicative and punctual and answered all of our questions expertly. We not only got an inspection, we also got educated on how to properly maintain the home. We'd highly recommend Alex to any homebuyers.

We used Alex for an inspection after we had already purchased our house. He was very thorough and personable. He gave us a very detailed report, which included many actionable items to improve our new house. He was very knowledgable. It was money well-spent to get to know our new house and to ensure that we met all the safety requirements to feel comfortable living there with our family. I predict that the knowledge that he transferred to us will end up saving us money when we meet with contractors. Thank you!

I worked with Alex on two condo inspections. He is highly knowledgeable, professional and caring. He not only provided incredibly thorough reports, he took the time to share steps I could take on specific home improvement projects. I recommend Alex and JBS to anyone who wants an honest and reliable run down of exactly what is going on with their home.

We hired Alex to inspect our new home at the recommendation of our agent, and we were thoroughly impressed with the thoroughness of the inspection and the professionalism Alex brought to the entire process. He provided an incredibly helpful inspection report, available through his online portal and in PDF form, and took the time to walk us through what we needed to be aware of with the home. Even the listing agent was impressed to the point where she requested Alex's business card at the end of it. I would 100% recommend Alex and JBS to anyone looking for someone to inspect a home.

Alex was the top recommendation of our realtor, herself quite capable and experienced. My wife and I have had a few house inspections done over the years and we have never had an inspection and report as thorough and useful as Alex’s was. The experience itself was more like spending half a day with an old friend than having an inspection done by a stranger. He went over every inch of our house and property, methodically and patiently explaining everything he saw. We really appreciated how willing he was to answer all of our (many) questions and how clear, practical and understandable all his responses were. He gave us tons of helpful advice, and gave us recommendations for folks he trusts to do the work when we asked him for them. He was warm and funny, professional and responsive. After receiving the report, we contacted him from time to time with questions and he was immediately responsive. All in all, we could not have asked for a better experience nor a more useful report, and would recommend him in a heartbeat!

I will recommend JBS to as many people as is possible. Alex was incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, honest, caring and informative. His inspection of our potential home was a rare educational process which will help us set priorities, prepare an accurate time line and navigate us through repairs and renovations.. He was a delight to be with and brought professional terms and labels to a civilian level which was respectful and helpful beyond words. If I could give him ten stars, I would. There is really no one like his professional help and kindness.

We made the right decision to ask Alex to inspect our new home. He was very into details and extremely knowledgeable. He also gave us a list of valuable suggestions to improve the home. The report was generated in the same day at night with everything! Last but not least, Alex gave us a book of everything we should know about a home.

My three-unit condo association hired Alex to inspect our 110-year-old building, and we’re so glad we did! We knew the building needed some repairs, and wanted helping prioritizing those as well as getting a sense of what else might be on the horizon. Alex was great—thoughtful and professional and a good communicator. He was very thorough, especially in the basement, where he gave us an educational tour of the building’s systems and discovered (uh oh) some active knob-and-tube wiring. It was a lot of information, so I really appreciated the report with photos that arrived later the same day. It’s hugely helpful to know what requires attention soon (and why), and what can be tackled later. Our inspection with Alex was an excellent investment, in terms of both planning repairs for the building and bringing us greater peace of mind.
