Brian was so thorough and from top to bottom gave us so much information on the property. He is also a general... contractor and gave practical advice and suggestions on what could and couldn't be possible. The inspection took three hours and we were definitely pleased with his service. We plan to use him again and will spread his number among our circle!read more

Brian was wonderful - extremely friendly and, more importantly, thorough! As a first-time homebuyer, I was hugely... appreciative of his walking me through every inch of the property, going so far as to make suggestions about how to make the most of a tiny space! Really appreciated meeting with him and his son. Would definitely recommend!read more

Going into purchasing an early 1800's home I was a little skeptical and nervous as to what we might find from the home... inspection. I have purchased a few homes and have worked with enough home inspectors to know the good ones and bad ones. Brian was extremely thorough and made my wife and I feel even better about our purchase than the initial excitement of when our offer was accepted. He walked us through and made sure we understood areas that needed to be improved upon but also noted the great qualities of the home. Brian is detailed oriented and you can rest assure you will know exactly the type of home you are getting after you have used Five Sar Homes services. Their name reflects the quality of their work.read more

This is the second time I use FSHI and work with Brian and Patrick. Both times they have been professional, timely,... communicative and most importantly knowledgeable. The first time I hired them was through a referral, and I was impressed; so when a second opportunity raised I didn't hesitate to call them again. As a person that enjoys DYI projects, I truly enjoy working with Brian because he always has tips about how to repair things and what materials to use.read more

I've used Brian for 2 home inspections now. The first one was more memorable, and proves his worth to any potential... customer. On the first inspection, Brian discovered the duplex had not one...but TWO crawl-spaces. He had to crawl through some really tight spots, and had to contend with some hazards that were left behind. He went far beyond the minimum to create a very thorough report, which saved me from a potential money pit. On the second inspection, he was just as thorough, as well as his son, Patrick...but he was totally geeking out on my place's features. I learned something new about windows, HVAC systems, and electrical paneling. If you think his fee is a little pricey, just read the above. I had no problem paying his fee the second time. You won't be disappointed.read more

Brian was great!! He and his son thoroughly went through every inch of the interior and exterior of the home. He was... impartial and informative, professional and kind. i had a last minute concern come up the night I was scheduled to sign the Purchase and Sale. I sent him a Mayday text and email. He looked into my concern, go back to me and my broker within a few hours and he really didn't have to. Definitely went the extra mile for me which I appreciate so much. I would recommend without reservation.read more

I have worked with many home inspectors through the years, but I have found Five Stars to be the best.

Highly recommendedread more

I am glad we got to work with Brian O'Boyle as our inspection specialist. Brian was thorough, detail oriented and makes... the whole process much less stressful than it should be for us first time home buyers. He took the time to go all around the property with us, taking detail pictures to be used later on in his report, explaining us in detail what needs to be repaired, improved or maintained, and what should be prioritized. He gave lots of tips and ideas about different repair and maintenance options in and around the house, which proved his knowledge also as a contractor. He is a fun person to be around, makes the whole inspection process enjoyable and educating. Brian did not shy away from crawling into deep crawlspaces in the basement when needed, and even gave us a long instruction on how to use and maintain a furnace/boiler. I would absolutely recommend Mr. O'Boyle as an inspector and am looking forward to working with him in the future on different contracting projects. Alp Cigmanread more

This was the second time using Brian as a home inspector (first was for a pre offer inspection). Brian did a fantastic... job of giving me a thorough inspection of my pending property while also explaining everything in layman's terms. I felt comfortable asking questions, and Brian gave me thought out answers. I learned a lot about the property being inspected but also a good lesson on homes in general. I've had home inspections in the past and this was by far the best experience. I highly recommend Brian and his son (apprentice) Patrick for your home inspection.read more

Brian and his apprentice Pat helped inspect our condo and we loved working with them! They were extremely thorough and... took the time to explain everything in depth so that we knew exactly what it was and why he was calling it out. Especially as a first time home buyer, having Brian take the time explain everything he was seeing and how to maintain different appliances was a huge help. They also followed up with a very detailed report that included pictures of each item. I would highly recommend Brian's services to everyone!read more

Working with Bryan and the team at Five Stars was an excellent experience. His scheduling team was helpful, responsive,... and accommodating. Bryan was extremely thorough in the inspection and clearly has a wide range of expertise. Bryan also knew that I was under a time crunch to deliver the inspection report and had it turned around in about 12 hours. Highly recommend this service, you can't go wrong. Thanks again Bryan!read more

Brian and his team are the best in the business! So far I have used Brian TWICE and will continue to use him for future... purchases. Brian has a wealth of knowledge and an expert eye. He was able to point out things that needed attention and didn't mind slowing down and explaining in detail exactly what we were looking at. As a first time home buyer I was a little uneasy but having Brian on my team made me feel comfortable that I knew exactly what I was getting into. In the end, I decided that the first house I looked at needed too much work. I ended up calling Brian two months later and the second house we looked at together was a much better fit. I feel confident that with Brian's help I am making a smart investment. Brian also includes a detailed report and because of the amazing job he did with my purchase; even my lawyer was impressed and is recommending the Five Stars Home Inspection team to all his other clients! Highly recommend for your next inspection!read more

Brian is a total pro! My wife and I who are first time home buyers recently worked with Brian. What I loved about the... home inspection with Brian is that it was like taking a class on how to be a professional homeowner. Rather than flying through the inspection and sending us a report, Brian took the time to explain every little detail to us, both the good and the bad. I was mind blown at the amount of things I never thought to look for. What we also appreciated is that Brian never got tired of the millions of questions we were asking through the process. He was mindful of our uncertainty with things and took the time to answer our questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. Working with Brian will make you feel confident in the decision you make when purchasing your new home! no need to look further!read more

I'm a real estate broker in Boston and having been in the business for nearly 2 decades, I can highly recommend Brian... as he's meticulous, detailed, knowledgeable, and will go the extra mile. And while doing all that, he makes an effort to explain things in layman's terms so that new home owners learn as well. We should call him an Inspector and Educator!read more

Last weekend I met Brian, he was a very nice, friendly and knowledgeable inspector. He explained to us every detail of... the condo during the process. I really felt that he was on our side, trying to help and find problems so we can take them into consideration during our purchase process. Also, he told us he provides construction services, which we definitely will need and we will contact him again to remodel a few areas in our condo. Thank you!read more

My husband and I are first time homebuyers. Brian was incredibly thorough, he answered all of our questions, and made... me fee comfortable enough to ask him anything. I did not feel like I had any dumb questions though I am sure I was asking very basic one. He was nice, on time (early), and the final product was a massive/thorough document with pictures and full descriptions. If we get to the point where we are ready to make some updates (and can afford it)I will definitly reach out to him, he's also a general contractor!read more
