- P.A., November 2018
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.
- J.E., August 2018
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
- S.F., July 2018
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!
- A.D., Boonton NJ, July 2018
Thank you for your friendly manner and for being very helpful!
- K.A., June 2018
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.
- N.V., June 2018
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.
- U.B., May 2018
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 !!

I would highly recommend Tony for your next home inspection! Thank you Tony for all of you hard work ! You are very much appreciated.
