BJ was very helpful during the inspection. He was able to show me how to operate the fireplace, sprinkler system etc. Great experience.
- K.H., March 2017
I would HIGHLY recommend BJ and his company to anyone needing a home inspection. Not only were they extremely professional and detail oriented but they also were friendly and more than willing to answer any questions we had during the process. The report if thorough, easy to understand and includes tips on maintenance which is extremely helpful since we are first time home buyers.
- A.G., March 2017
It was a pleasure meeting you. You did a great job and the report is very professional, very detailed and well done in general. The only thing I was a little not pleased with, was the unfriendly way the person whom answered the business phone spoke to me the couple times I called, it even made me think about reconsidering our already scheduled appointment. But I decided to take my chances and hope for a good inspection, which surpassed my expectation. Thank you.
- P.N., Jacksonville FL, February 2017

I have used inside out properties 2 times in the search for my new home. Bernarr was always on time and exceptionally thorough. He went above and beyond going through the property with a fine tooth comb and the report I recieve was easy to read and follow. There was also great information included in the report for preventive maintenance on several items in the home. I will always refer Inside Out Properties to anyone that needs a home inspection. I am 100% satisfied with the outcome and the exceptional service I received.

SUPER - Fast, Thorough, Reasonable, and Knowlegeable.
- D.P., September 2015
Bernarr is one of the most competent and thorough Inspectors I have worked with in my whole Real Estate career. He takes the time to talk to my customers about potential issues and what it would take to correct them. His team makes my job easier by getting a complete house inspection done within a couple hours which frees me up to go sell more homes and each team member reviews their findings with me afterwards. I would recommend them without hesitation!
- J.C., September 2015
I was very impress at the detailed and thoroughness of the inspection as well as with the recommendations to maintain and prevent deterioration in the future. The Inspection documents that were provided are an exceptional tool to keep and review regularly. Very happy customer.
- A.H., September 2015
I was extremely impressed with the speed, accuracy and level of detail contained in the report. When I requested your services I was a little uncertain in what form the end report would be presented. So imagine my pleasant surprise when it came through. Although I am an engineer by profession I was still amazed with your graphical software tool and the thermal images along with the supporting information and recommendations made in the report. In my case the property I am buying is subject to HOA and the report graphically illustrated what observations belonged to the seller and those that were the HOAs responsibility. Thank you BJ for your honesty and sheer professionalism throughout the inspection. I would recommend your services and very competitive fees anytime. A BIG thank you from a very appreciative Brit on this side of the pond!
- P.C., Palm Coast FL, September 2015
Inside and Out put my worries to bed concerning my new home. They were very informative and educated me on a few things being that I'm a first time homeowner. Their service was greatly appreciated.
- R.K., Middleburg FL, September 2015
Was very friendly and respectful. Took the time to fully explain all issues found and their severity.
- M.E., Jacksonville FL, August 2015
I think BJ did an excellent job and I particularly appreciate his willingness to answer all of my questions prior to and folliwng the inspection. Thanks
- D.M., Mission Viejo CA, August 2015
Very thorough with great recommendations for solutions to known problems. I would definitely say that we hired the right professionals, or really, the right experts for this inspection. Thank you!
- G.C., August 2015
Great job! Very efficient and thorough inspection - just what we needed! Thank you.
- A.F., Jacksonville FL, August 2015
I was thoroughly pleased with the process from start to finish. I was able to get answers to all my questions about the process on the initial telephone call. At the inspection, Bernarr and his team were very thorough and answered all the questions I could think of as I tagged along. There was a nice balance between professionalism and personability that made the whole process very comforting. The follow-up reports were provided promptly and with more detail than I was expecting. I would definitely use Bernarr and his team again and would also recommend them to others.
- M.S., Jacksonville FL, August 2015
Inspection caught the important items and gave us the knowledge we will need to fix the small items. I am very impressed with the integration of the video with the report.
- E.W., August 2015
very detailed Inspection! I was completely sold with the use of the FLIR camera. I am a career firefighters with over 32 years experience and Bj's use of this tool was fantastic. I highly recommend the company!
- S.L., August 2015
You did a superb job on my home inspection- a high level of detail with great photos, which the builder used to make all the necessary corrections on the defects you pointed out. I never would have been able to notice all the things you picked up. The realtor suggested that I didn't need an inspection on a new home. That would have been a big mistake. Thanks again, BJ.
- R.L., Jacksonville Beach FL, July 2015
very thorough and expert inspection.
- D.C., July 2015
Fantastic information and fast service!

It really answered many of the questions we had regarding the home and the shape it's in. We were extremely pleased with services, there's no rooms for disappointment with this gentleman and his Company.
- J.M., Saint Johns FL, March 2015
Professional, courteous and informative.
- G.L., Jacksonville FL, March 2015
BJ was very professional and thorough and made multiple attempts to solicit questions. I could tell he wanted to ensure I understood why certain findings were categorized as they were (i.e. Safety Hazards vs. Structural) and what it meant to us from a financial perspective. Overall, BJ was great and we will definitely refer him to anyone we know!!!
- J.H., Saint Augustine FL, March 2015
BJ was very thorough and efficient with his inspection. His detailed report helped us really understand our new home, and even after we move in we will look at it again to make sure even the tiny details will be taken care of.
- R.E., Jacksonville FL, March 2015
BJ was my pair of eyes, on a property that we have never seen. I live in Pittsburgh, PA and have been looking,for over a year, when I found "the one" on the internet. He walked me through each step before I agreed to anything. He did exactly what he said he would do, on the inspection, returned my calls promptly and he referred me to other reliable workers, in the area. I had hoped for fair and reliable and got so much more! Sincerely, Lisa
- L.A., March 2015
Great Job!!!!! Very Helpful and knowledgeable!
- T.M., Jacksonville FL, February 2015

- A.B., January 2015
Thank you BJ! You are really good in what you do. You are an expert! A kind professional with great understanding what new homeowners go through when making a huge purchase.

- H.S., Saint Augustine FL, January 2015
He was fantastic! He helped me a lot! Thank you for everything! Very knowledgeable!
- K.W., Ponte Vedra Beach FL, January 2015
I will definitely recommend you to others looking for a home inspector. The piece of mind and items found were well worth the price of the inspection. It was a pleasure working with you and I appreciate all the advice given during this process.
- J.G., Saint Johns FL, January 2015
I would highly recommend BJ and Inside & Out Property Inspections, Inc. I am purchasing a 45 year old home so I needed someone who was going to do a good job and who knew what to look for. BJ is highly knowledgeable in not only general construction, but also roofing, plumbing, electric, wells, irrigation systems, A/Cs, and more I'm sure. He was VERY thorough, he climbed all throughout the attic into extremely tight spaces and found a few issues with the construction of the brand new roof which would have otherwise gone unnoticed. He also found an issue with the electric that could have caused a major fire. As a first time home buyer, BJ took the time to fully explain the issues he found and in terms we could understand. BJ also made countless general recommendations about ways we could improve our home ourselves by doing DIY projects. I was very impressed with BJ and couldn't have been more pleased with the job he did inspecting our new home.
- J.S., Saint Augustine FL, January 2015
BJ Johnson was an extremely professional and informative inspector. He was educational and provided clear explanations before during and after the inspection. I recommend BJ Johnson for any and all home inspection needs.
- A.I., Saint Augustine FL, January 2015
I have already recommended you to a couple at church that are looking to purchase a home. Thank you so much, your report was very thorough and informative.
- G.N., Saint Augustine FL, January 2015
I want to take the time to thank Inside and Out Property Inspectors for their professionalism and outstanding customer service during my recent home inspection. I especially would like to thank Bernarr Johnson (BJ) for his thoroughness and meticulous attention to detail. I would recommend Inside and Out Property Inspectors to my friends and family. GREAT JOB!!!!!!
- J.H., Orange Park FL, January 2015
BJ has helped numerous customers of mine and I firmly believe he is THE BEST inspector in St.Johns County. His reports are detailed yet easy to read and BJ always makes himself available to answer questions. I would highly recommend BJ to anyone in need of a home inspection. Thank you BJ for all you do!
- K.H., January 2015
BJ was very professional and knowledgeable of the process. He provided me with great options to handle the issues that were found during my inspection. He also provided me with methods on how to prevent common problems that happen over time.I trust that my new house is in great condition based on his assessment.
- A.M., Saint Johns FL, January 2015
Good job. Will be calling for any further building needs.
- D.N., Jacksonville FL, December 2014
For Deaf customers you might want to think about providing a sign language interpreter if the Deaf customer request to be presented and have questions. I was not presented during the duration of the inspection because the sellers did not want to leave their house. However, the report with pictures was very helpful. The interpreter is an option.
- C.B., Hastings FL, December 2014
Thanks for everything BJ. My only suggestion is about the report form. There was the overall summary and then the HOA summary. It wasn't clear where hoa summary stopped and the rest of the report picked up.
- B.B., St. Augustine FL, December 2014
Being an out of town buyer, I was a little apprehensive about the inspection as I had no prior knowledge about this company. However, they were absolutely amazing! Professional and thorough and I will definitely be recommending them to others!
- P.G., St. Augustine FL, December 2014
I've purchased homes before (three) and each one was inspected, the last one by a Civil Engineer but none of them could come close to Bernarr, none were ever as detailed or as comprehensive as the one done by Bernaar. His depth of knowledge, his attention to every detail, his courtesy and his high level of professionalism are impressive. A rating of 10+ is well earned.
- M.R., St. Augustine FL, December 2014
BJ was fantastic , took his time and explained everything !!!
- G.R., December 2014
Bj conducted a thorough and professional inspection with clear recommendations and a comprehensive report. We have no hesitation in using bj again and recommending him to others.
