Chris was great. I was unable to be there for the inspection but my agent went in my place. I received the report within 24 hours and was so happy at how thorough he was! It was definitely worth every penny (which was very reasonable to start)! From scheduling to the end every step was easy and fast. The only suggestion would be to set up an online secure payment method but by check is easy too :) Thank you!!

Great inspector. Would definitely use him again. Detailed and thorough report. Only negative thing I will mention is that the sprinkler system was not addressed or tested. Besides this, a great guy to work with.
- B.S., June 2020
He was wonderful! Explained everything clearly and made sure we understood and saw everything he found. Greatly appreciate his work.

Very thorough and meticulous inspector. He reports the facts, not opinionated. Reminds me of my younger days when I was a government inspector
- R.J., June 2020
Very good inspection
- M.S., June 2020
Chris Brown is wonderful! He is extremely efficient and knowledgeable. He was kind and patient while explaining the results of his inspection and clearly let me know what items were urgent and which I had more time to complete. I felt confident in his conclusions, level of expertise and demonstrated competence. He is warm, personable and really seems to enjoy the work he performs. I highly recommend Chris Brown to inspect your home and am grateful to have had his support!
- A.L., June 2020

- L.Q., May 2020
Chris was very thorough and detailed. He explained everything so I understood the report and his findings. He was very friendly and professional. I would definitely use Chris again.
- P.S., May 2020
Quick, easy, and thorough. You couldn't ask for a better combination. Chris did a stellar job inspecting the house and was very attentive when communicating the results to me. He also made me much more confident about the property which was especially important to me considering this is my first home. I'll continue to use his services in the future and I highly recommend others do as well.
- B.K., April 2020
On the very last day of the "Stay at home" order taking effective, Chris did the inspection on our targeted house, and soon provided us with a more than expected detailed inspection report, just the kind of information that we needed to make our decision about buying the house or not. His service was amazing. Thank you, Chris, wish you stay in good health during this difficult pandemic time.
- K.J., foster city CA, March 2020
Chris is excellent. Highly recommend!
- C.G., March 2020
The best he was Diligent very observant Observed a lot of issues that I would’ve never seen without him and save me money in the long run greatly appreciate it thank you.
- M.V., February 2020

- G.C., February 2020
Very thorough and helped me to understand all of the items he found. Enjoyed working with Chris.
- T.C., January 2020
I liked working with Chris and through inspection. I will be using him on a 2nd home inspection within the next year
- O.P., January 2020
Very happy we had the inspection, things we wouldn’t have thought of were inspected.
- K.O., December 2019
Chris provided us with just the kind of information that we needed to make our decision about buying the Longmont house. His reports confirmed that the risks of making the wrong decision about a house requires a deep look below its surface. This look is what Chris's inspection and reports gave us - even though it was a sad ending to our hope that this home would be the one for us. His service was amazing. Hopefully, the next one he inspect for us confirms that we are in the right place. Thank you, Chris.
- J.W., Carmichael CA, December 2019
Chris is absolutely the best! With residential or commercial, you wont be disappointed. Always an extremely thorough job. Will use CP Properties for all future inspection needs. Thanks Chris!
- C.L., Sacramento CA, November 2019
Chris was extremely knowledgable, professional, and helpful to us as first time homebuyers going through our first inspection. He was very patient in answering questions after the inspection and making us feel comfortable with everything we were looking at. Definitely recommend.
- M.J., September 2019
Chris was very personable. He explained in detail his findings after completing his inspection.
- K.B., September 2019
Good job. Very professional. Completed in timely manner. Report sent very same day. Thank you.
- T.R., September 2019
Chris did an amazing job with our home inspection. He is incredibly knowledgeable and thorough, and we had a great experience working with him. I highly recommend Chris and his services, we will most certainly be contacting Chris for any future needs.
- M.S., August 2019
We had Chris come to our property that we were SELLING and he was so thorough and "caught" items that we didn't even know about when we bought the home 3 years earlier. Because of his thoroughness we asked that he be our home inspector for the property we were BUYING. Chris came out and again worked his magic (in OVER 100 degree weather, mind you, and in crawl spaces and the like), and ultimately saved us tens of thousands of dollars (not even joking here) with his findings. We will ALWAYS recommend Chris and use him for our home inspections from here on out. Thank you!!
- H.N., July 2019
Chris was very professional and thorough. His report was comprehensive and his suggestions on maintenance techniques and future care of the homes was in depth, proactive, and appreciated. I feel very confident that my home has no hidden surprises and that Chris will be available for consultation if any occur. Thank you Chris for your attention to detail and personal service.
- B.B., July 2019
Chris was great! We appreciated his expertise and tips on how to get things fixed up to code. Chris was very personable and down to earth, and kindly addressed all of our questions (as first time homeowners, we had a lot!). Chris went out of his way to make sure the house was fully inspected, and his report was very thorough. He even offered his expertise by phone if we should run into any questions while remodeling- now that's going above and beyond!
- A.P., July 2019
Thank you so much Chris for coming on a holiday I cannot express enough appreciation. The inspection was very through I?m so please this was worth every penny and I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to have a home inspection. Buying a home is stressful in itself but knowing you found things that would not normally be detected puts my mind at ease that we will be safe and happy. Thank you so much for your expertise you are awesome!
- K.M., July 2019
Chris was prompt and really helpful in explaining the things he had seen. He also gave us insights as to how difficult certain fixes would be so we could navigate in our decision what we could handle ourselves and what perhaps we needed assistance on.
- R.H., July 2019
Chris you did an excellent job of explaining stuff to us you were very professional and I wanna thank you for the thorough inspection
- M.A., June 2019
I would highly recommend Chris Brown for an inspection. He was extremely thorough and took the time to walk through the property with me and explain all of the action items. He was very informative and I felt confident I knew everything going on with the property. Thanks Chris!
- K.K., June 2019
Chris was very personable and professional. 10/10 would recommend.
- S.S., June 2019

- N.R., March 2019
My fiance and I are in the process of buying our first home, which can be daunting - but Chris made us feel at completely at ease during the process of walking us through our home inspection report. He is very honest, thorough, and full of knowledge. Our realtor swears that Chris is the best around, and now we know why. Thanks for your help, Chris!
- B.M., March 2019
He did a really good job explaining his findings even with my 2 and 3 yr old making a bunch of noise. He was professional. And I was able to go online, and view the details of his inspection soon after our meeting with him.
- K.K., February 2019
Chris was on time, did a very thorough inspection and in the process I learned a lot. Use Chris, you will not be disappointed!

- J.G., Sacramento CA, May 2018
My fiancee and I were in the process of purchasing a house and when it came time for home inspections, CB Property Inspections came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. Within a short amount of time requesting an appointment, I was contacted. When Chris came and did the inspection and re-inspection, he was very thorough, helpful, knowledgeable and detailed in his reporting and write ups. I would recommend that anyone looking for a quality property inspector choose CB Property Inspections. Chris took the time to sit down and report his findings and the report was ready almost immediately once he had finished his inspection. We could not recommend Chris and his team enough to anyone.
- M.G., April 2018
Fast, thorough, and professional! Not knowing much about homes, I was delighted to have Chris Brown take the time and explain in common language the issues he found with my home. Jayson Gottman
- J.G., February 2018
Loved that he was early for the inspection and very detailed.
- T.K., Davis CA, November 2017
The Best !
- J.K., West Sacramento CA, November 2017
Chris did a thorough and diligent inspection for us and took the time to explain his findings and answer our questions. And we had a lot of questions. Better still, our first inspection with Chris yielded a deal-breaking defect in the first 10 minutes. We called off the sale right then and there and Chris didn't charge us for coming out. We chose Chris to do our second inspection and we'll call him again if we ever need an inspection in his coverage area again.
- E.S., September 2017
Friendly. Was able to explain to me what he found without me being lost in the sauce.
- J.D., September 2017
What an incredible experience with Chris. Thorough, pleasant and professional. I can't recommend him enough.
- K.S., June 2017
more than on time & professional. great service.
- J.K., February 2017
Very thorough inspection!
- J.F., August 2016
Chris Brown from CB Property Inspections was on time, professional, informative, and provided a summary onsite immediately after his inspection. A complete report followed, as promised, with comprehensive details on his findings. An additional benefit of the CB Property Inspections' report format is that it doubles as a homeowners' reference tool to all systems in the home - a MUST for the homeowners' library to support and guide solutions to future issues or plans for future renovations.
- A.K., May 2016
Totally professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and punctual. He answered all the questions that I had fully and in a way that I could clearly understand. I got the report the same day as the inspection and it looks great. He shows pictures of all his comments and has a full explanation of each item. His office staff was very helpful in scheduling too. I will surely recommend him to my friends and family.
- T.D., April 2016
Chris was thorough in his inspection and explained the report in detail to me in person, and the report is similarly detailed, easy to follow, organized, and illustrates his thorough process. Highly recommend!
- C.C., May 2015
Mr. Brown was on time and waiting for us, before our appointment time. As far as we could see he was thorough and very professional in his inspection. His presentation to us was also thorough, complete with pictoral representations of what things needed repair. He was meticulous in his recommendations as to how to repair the items. An addditional asset is his ability to give us all copies of his report right at the time. He was courteous and respectful at all times, and even appreciated our sometime warped senses of humor. Thank you Chris. We will recommend you with no reservations to others in need of your service. Susan Reid
- D.R., March 2015
Excellent, does a very thorough job. Explains everything very comprehensively to the buyer.
- G.W., Sacramento CA, February 2015
This seasoned ol' man was wonderful person and a professional to the core. Craig and his son Chris are the best team of licensed inspectors that I could have wished for inspecting a house with crawl space and remodeled by unlicensed contractors with many code violations. Their professional report was very useful for rectifying those violations to ensure safety and bring in the cozy home feeling. Also, they have a good friendly disposition to explain most technical codes to a laymen. To me average is 5 and very good is 7. A 9 from me is like dancing with the stars...
- J.S., October 2013
You and your staff are very professional and informative. I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Thank you so much.
- J.S., August 2011
Thank You for your time for the inspection. You pointed me in the right direction to get the things corrected and the home in living condition. Gary.
- G.B., April 2011
Great Experience. Extremely knowledgeable. Fast Reports. Would use Craig again. John Kane - Kane Realty & Parkside Property
- J.K., West Sacramento CA, March 2011
Craig and Chris' quick response time and reasonable pricing is exactly what I need for my clients. They are unbelievably thorough, but because of their experience they know what items are something to cause concern and what should be added to the "honey-do" list. I always call CB when I need an inspection.
- S.C., February 2011
Your Sone is the best
