We just bought our first home. Tony was referred to us by our realtor and we didn't know a ton about the home buying process.
Tony is thorough, patient, kind and he definitely has his clients' interests at heart. He really took the time to explain everything he did during the inspection, why it mattered and even call out what he noticed. Like I mentioned, this process was our first for all of it. We never did any of this before and we had a lot of basic questions. Tony answered clearly and patiently, even if we may have been asking a dumb question. It didn't matter. He was there to check out our home and he wanted to make sure we knew everything.
His report was so detailed and easy to understand that it made it easier to negotiate after the inspection, moreso than I anticipated. It was clear what he called out as needing immediate repair vs, something that was less urgent and he was available for questions and answers afterward.
I think we waited less than 24 hours for the entire report, with the radon coming a little later as expected. Given the lightning speed at which it seeems we bought the house, we really appreciated this part.
I think Tony's fee was fair, especially for the attention to detail he had for every aspect of our home. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a home inspector.

Scheduled the appointment with sellers as soon I called him, completed the inspection in a very thorough manner, and submitted his report the same day. His fee was very affordable. Sf Oakland 7/18

Tony was very knowledgeable and helpful during this whole process. We are first time home buyers and Tony was able to explain everything to us in terms we would understand and help us with recommending the next steps of some of the issues we came across. He was flexible with his schedule and came early to the inspection which was great. We really appreciated and trusted his feedback and we are looking forward to our first home thanks to Tony and his expertise. We will definitely be taking his advice and fixing the items he mentioned that needed routine maintenance. I would definitely recommend Tony to any home buyer, but especially a first time home buyer!

Mr. Russo was professional, thorough, and was able to explain all areas of inspections clearly and concisely without losing the meaning of what he was sharing. It was a pleasure working with him and I would recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Very satisfied with the effort put in by Tony. We have hired him a couple of times first time for an independent home inspection and second was most recently for a town-home inspection. Tony gives attention to detail and is very meticulous in his work and that is what is most important to have a good inspection report. Will definitely work with him and recommend him.

We were purchasing a condo and needed a home inspector to complete the deal.
I checked reviews before selecting Tony. All comments were positive. Second, his price was more realistic and reasonable.
He was a little early on inspection day, friendly and professional in his demeanor. I followed him around asking questions and getting answers. He pointed out several items that needed to be addressed and explained why. His eye for detail is sharp and his same day report reflects that.
I don't hesitate to recommend Tony for any home inspection.
- R.S., May 2018
The inspection was very detailed and complete. Tony explains the functions of the home to my buyers as well.
He sends a complete report the next day.
I highly recommend Focal Point!

Tony is one of the best home inspectors I have recommended for my clients! Not only is he friendly.. he is super knowledgeable and works well with first time home buyers !! He goes threw the inspection taking photos and notes so his clients understand exactly what they are looking at. The report is received not even a day after the inspection is done. I would highly recommend Tony for your next home inspection! Thank you Tony for all of you hard work ! You are very much appreciated.

Tony was punctual, extremely thorough, and provided great information throughout the inspection.

Would highly recommend.

I selected Anthony Russo to do my home inspection because he was recommended by two others who had used him. His availability and flexibility to fit my schedule was great. The inspection was comprehensive and will be invaluable as I proceed with the purchase and repairs/upgrades he suggested. His opinion of the property condition and safety issues was most appreciated. His experience and training are evident and resulted in providing me with a high quality report.

Tony you were fabulous! I appreciate your patience with me and also the fact that you took your time to explain things not just run through the house and put them on the report. Thank you again!

Thorough inspection and Tony is down to earth and easy to talk to. One of the good guys!
- M.M., ringwood NJ, July 2016
Tony, was professional and extremely thorough, he does not rush through the inspection, but takes his time, explaining what he doing and why. He had cool tools as well, such as Infrared thermal imaging, where you can see the surface of the wall, even when there is a kitchen cabinet in front of it. And if I remember correctly, the color purple on the scanner is a sign for water or moisture. It gives the consumer before buying or renting food for thought, especially if there is visible water damage in a home or rental. If the scanner is showing purple and there is evidence of a leak or water damage, in the place, before you buy or rent, you should check behind the cabinets or walls. There might be Biological pollutants present in the walls, which can cause a health problems, especially in a place where ventilation is an issue as well. Buying a house or even renting one is a big expense, but your health and safety is priceless. Tony, is a great resource for anyone to make an educated decision, before a house purchase or rental.
