Brian came through for me last minute when I was in a pinch, and I couldn't be more grateful! He did a fantastic job and was incredibly thorough in his inspection. He took the time to explain what he was seeing and answered every one of my questions. His inspection report was very detailed with his notes and pictures. I now have peace of mind! I highly recommend Brian!read more

Brian was kind enough to show up during the Fourth of July holiday weekend to complete the inspection. During the inspection, he informed my Buyers of the condition of all pertinent structures and systems and educated them on the best maintenance routine for each. He turned around his detailed report in just a few hours. Would definitely work with him again.read more

Brian made the home inspection process a breeze for my family and I. He was able to book an appointment next day from when I contacted him and completely explained the process before booking to ensure we were comfortable. As I had work he was able to meet others in my family and walked them through a very thorough inspection of our new home. He found stuff that we had missed during our viewings and the report was full of very useful information that will be invaluable to us moving forward. Highly recommend!read more

Brian was extremely thorough and accommodating. As a first time home buyer the inspection can be scary and confusing. He took his time to not only do a very detailed inspection but help me understand what everything meant and give me resources to investigate further. Couldn't recommend him enough!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

I would recommend Brian O’Boyle 100%! He was knowledgable, accommodating, and professional in all our interactions with him. As first time home buyers, my husband and I have no idea what we’re doing, but even as we scheduled the inspection, Brian made us feel at ease and taken care of. He went over exactly what the inspection would entail, costs, and how long it would take before we even arrived at the property.

Once we were there, we knew we’d made the right choice. Brian was as thorough as thorough can be. He checked every nook and cranny of our house and yard, explaining what things could be an issue and what things we should just take care of when we had the time.

The inspection report we got was comprehensive without being at all alarming, full of pictures and recommendations for if things needed to be fixed immediately or if we might want to replace them down the line. Not only do we feel comfortable going forward with the purchase, but now we have a full list of to-dos for when we move into our new home!

Brian O’Boyle came to meet us exactly on time to inspect a condominium we planned to purchase. He was very thorough and inspected from the roof to the bottom of the condominium complex (garage, heating, cooling systems, electric, plumbing) and of course inspected the home. Incredibly detailed inspector, very focused and also explains his finding clearly as he goes. He definitely knows and loves what he is doing. Probably the best money I have ever spent. Not only because he discovered major problems and saved us lots money, headaches, and possibly prevented a lawsuit but also because it was such a great experience to work with him. Highly recommend Brian O’Boyle as a home inspector.

Brian O’Boyle is exactly the kind of home inspector I needed! I will recommend him to everyone looking for a thorough, reliable home inspector who goes the extra mile for his clients.

Brian was very responsive and accommodating. You know you’ve made the right choice, when he personally returns your first call, late just to make sure that “you’ve been taken care of.” Scheduling an appointment and taking care of the paperwork was a breeze. Brian gave me very helpful tips about getting some preliminary, useful info about the building (minutes of the HOA, building permits, etc). He showed up on time and did a thorough inspection of the place basement to roof. He took the time to explain everything I wanted to know about problems, repairs, etc (and I’m a neophyte so it’s not a small task). He had tones of helpful tips about how to make things more efficient, etc. His report was amazing with detailed photos (even highlighting the zones of interest in red) and comments. He’s also very responsive with follow-up questions. As I said, 5 stars all the way!

Brian O’Boyle was so magnificent to work with. He came out after 8 p.m. to accommodate my schedule. He was patient and explained useful tips that will be helpful for maintaining my home years down the road. His inspection report was meticulous and contained photographs and explanations. He responds to messages in under a minute. I would definitely recommend Brian for any future inspections!

Brian O’Boyle was excellent to work with. He was accommodating, patient and thorough. I made a bonehead move with giving him the wrong date (stress has made my brain mush), but when this snafu became evident, he still showed up on the day I needed him. He even gave me my jacket when he noticed I was cold. That is true service, and very rare.

He also caught a major potential problem with our possible new home, in that one of the systems is still functional, but will soon become a large home expense. This item is currently not technically in his purview, but he’d given me the tip to pull the permits for work done to the house from the town. After his review of it, he discovered that the septic system is almost 30 years old!

All in all, I sincerely appreciated his generosity with his time and knowledge. He explained much of what he found, as he found it, in ways that we could understand.

Thank you, Brian, for being a class act!

Highly recommended! Brian O’Boyle is very knowledgeable. Can and will give you the rationale behind everything he inspects and why. Confidently answered about 10,000 questions during and after the inspection. Still picks up my calls and is happy to hash things out with me. He made a huge and positive impact on my home purchase experience and expect that he will continue to be a resource for my family and our real estate investments in the future. Thanks Brian, I’ll be calling…

Brian O’Boyle was top notch.  I knew after talking with him to schedule the home inspection he was going to be very detailed, thorough and provide top quality service.  On the day of the home inspection, he followed through on just that.  He took the time to explain issues as he saw them along with taking numerous photos to document the issues.  His knowledge of “all things housing” was incredible and his ability to put in in layman’s terms allowed us to really understand what the issues were.  He did an excellent job writing the inspection report and delivered it on the same day.  We even communicated with him after the home inspection to follow up on some of our concerns and he was more than happy to help us.  I would highly recommend Brian to help you with your home inspection.  The house was 100 years old and I don’t think anything missed his eye.  He will give you the assurance you need for your home buying decision.

We worked with Brian O’Boyle, and he was excellent. He was knowledgeable, informative, thorough, and patient. He took time to inspect every part of the exterior, common area, and our unit (it was a three-unit condo in Somerville). He was well-versed in electric wiring, heating, plumbing, you name it. He answered all of our questions and provided us with a detailed, easy-to-understand inspection report within six hours of the inspection. He is a top-notch!

We worked with Brian O’Boyle on a home inspection for a single family colonial in Medford.  He was extremely flexible and able to schedule the inspection around our requested time.  My first impression was that he was on time and professional.  As a first time homebuyer, my parents also attended the inspection and Brian got along very well with my father, who is very experienced in carpentry and home-improvement projects.
