Buying a Home is an Emotional Experience

It's easy to become emotionally attached to a home. We're here to provide an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.

A home inspection is an objective, visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of a home. The inspection will provide you with detailed, unbiased information to allow you to make an informed decision.

We'll uncover building defects, needed repairs, or preventative maintenance issues that will help avoid costly repairs in the future. Often issues that can lead to major problems down the road can be corrected inexpensively.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Kevin from Best Inspections. What a great guy to work with! He is friendly, helpful, honest and hard working. Yes. Really, he is! You don’t meet people like him anymore. This was my first inspection and I needed someone immediately. Kevin went above and beyond for me...from meeting times, contacting the broker, to pricing. I was overwhelmed with all the little things I had to do but Kevin made this experience so much easier for me. I want to thank him over and over for making this piece of the process such a positive one.

Without Kevin's professional work, I wouldn't have the confidence to purchase 159 Western Ave. It was a great buy with John DiBlasi as my realtor and he recommended Kevin to do professional home inspection for me. I was lucky to have Kevin inspecting 159 Western to be able to make the decision to.purchase the property. Thank you Kevin so much! Your professional work and friendliness to clients will bring more business to you. I have learned a lot from you and I wish to work with you again. Thank you!
Kevin was thorough and helpful. He found problems that other inspectors missed and spent hours going through the house. He saved me from buying one house with hidden asbestos insulation. He responds promptly and shows up as promised.
Great experience! Very intensive check on our new home to purchase!!! Would recommend to anyone that needs home inspections!!

Kevin did an excellent job inspecting the home I plan to purchase. He offered me advice on how to properly maintain the home in the future while also addressing issues that will need to be repaired by the seller. The cost of Kevin's inspection gets an immediate return through costly repairs completed by the seller.
David Muniz
Kevin is excellent. His inspections are thorough and honest. He will show you everything that needs to addressed in your home and give you good advice on how to deal with the issues. After his inspection, I feel very confident in the house we have decided to purchase and will absolutely recommend Kevin to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Kevin was an amazing inspector and I would recommend him to any of my family or friends. He is a trustworthy professional and is a pleasure to work with.
Martha Fagan
My family and I have used Mr. Bestler's inspection services three times during the past year. He is very professional, punctual, and knows what he is doing. His comprehensive reports and additional explanation of the condition of the houses assisted us in making informed decisions about three different transactions. Mr. Bestler performs very detailed inspections, which are crucial for such an important investment. We highly recommend his services.
