- S.S., Roseville CA, December 2021
CB Property Inspections is an incredible company. Chris and Kristine make CB even more incredible. My experience was flawless. I had detailed communication along the way and Chris and Kristine are so responsive. I found them because another inspection company tried to take advantage of me with respect to pricing. The silver lining is that I found a family-owned company that is relationship-driven, highly professional, and thorough in every way. CB Property Inspections is now my go-to company. I have already recommended them to fellow commercial real estate investors. Thank you
- K.C., November 2021
Chris is the only inspector I prefer to use for my clients. He is thorough and also is a communicator. I have worked with Chris for over 14 years and highly recommend CB Property Inspections
- S.O., Roseville CA, October 2021
Chris was extremely knowledgeable and willing to share his broad scope of experience with us. He was patient and thorough in answering questions we had during his survey of our property. He was meticulous and methodical moving through the home and took note of even the smallest of details. We liked that he photographed and recorded voice notes as he moved from room to room. We appreciated his careful attention to detail and valued the clear expertise he brought to bear on our home inspection. Chris was a pleasure to work with and I would absolutely recommend his expert services to anyone needing a home inspection.
- B.A., October 2021
Happy with the overall service from setting a quick appointment and the on-time, efficient and complete. Inspection report was very organize and easy-to-read approach to address each possible issue, and with pictures! The report was given online latter that day! I was very pleased I called. Thanks!
- J.Y., October 2021
I decided to contact Chris to perform an independent inspection of my new home. I believe he did a thorough inspection inside and outside my home, including the roof, garage, fencing, and exposed pipes and utility boxes. He clearly explained his findings and recommendations. He asked for and listened to my concerns and questions. I was able to generate a checklist of items needing attention from the report Chris provided. This will be very helpful when the year review conducted by the builder is scheduled. Chris is professional and provided his reports the next day. Scheduling his services was easy through the office, which also confirmed the appoint date and time. Fees were reasonable; payment methods were clearly explained. I highly recommend CB Property Inspections and would use their services again.
- M.P., October 2021
Chris is always on time, extremely thorough, informative, and pleasant! Use him every chance I get.

- B.B., April 2021
We really had a great experience with our Inspector. He was punctual, professional and very thorough. Would highly recommend again.
- S.G., April 2021
Chris was very efficient and professional. He explained what he was looking at as he worked through the house inside and out. Chris found a couple of items I was unaware of and confirmed other items that I had suspected so the inspection was well worth the nominal cost. The inspection was of a newly constructed house prior end of the one year manufacturer warranty. I received a detailed report I was able to provide the builder so that they were able to schedule tradespeople to make the corrections prior to warranty end. I'm a happy CB Property Inspections customer and highly recommend Chris to anyone else seeking a home inspection.
- D.B., Roseville CA, March 2021
Excellent thorough inspection. This is my 6th home purchase over the years and I wish I had Chris for all of them. He is professional, personable, detailed, and sent me the report that evening.
- J.S., Roseville CA, March 2021
Our first call was to the office and Kristine was prompt to reply to my message and we established an appointment. Our inspection was time sensitive and we were promptly attended to. Chris Brown had an cancellation and was able to come sooner. Chris was professional and extremely thorough in the inspection that was done. The inspection was explained and a lot of pictures were taken to document concerns. The inspection report was available the very next day. We found the company via the internet and were extremely satisfied with the service we received. We would highly recommend CB Property Inspections!
- L.T., March 2021
Chris was very friendly and professional. He put us at ease and made sure we understood what he found, how those things impacted the house today and could impact it in the future.
- L.D., March 2021
CBPI is the most thorough and knowledgeable home inspection service I have ever seen. Chris’ experience in all systems of a home—site, envelope, structure, roof, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, fire life safety-is unmatched. For buyers, particularly of new construction homes, a firm with this level of professionalism is critical, or you risk missing important elements. We highly recommend CBPI. Dave & Caryn Slane Custom home purchase. March 2021.
- D.S., March 2021
Thanks Chris for our home inspection, you did what we wanted as Holmes on Homes would do "Do it Right" You showed and explained every inside and outside examples of necessary problems that should be looked into before our purchase. Hats off to you!!

Chris did an amazing job! Not only did he find issues with a house that was only 2 years old, he explained each one thoroughly and in layman's terms. He ended up saving us over $1000 in things that would be easily overlooked by most people (maybe even other home inspectors).
- M.D., August 2020
From booking our appointment to receiving our report the experience has been wonderful and seamless. Chris is an amazing guy, so thorough and honest. Not only was his report provided quickly, but put together in a way that was easy for us to understand. He explained all of the items as well as very easily answered any and every question we had. We would definitely 10 out of 10 recommend having anyone use his services for their inspection needs.

She is very friendly and helpful and easy to work with. She got us set up with our appointment and answered all of our questions before the inspection.
- S.S., July 2020
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!!
- A.G., June 2020
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.

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.

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.

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
