John was recommended to us, and we couldn't be happier. It was our very first home-buying experience, and John's level of expertise, combined with his superior communication skills, made the home inspection portion a breeze. He is incredibly thorough and honest, and his turnaround time for the report is extremely fast. We will be recommending him to all friends and family who are planning on buying a home in the future!

Since my home inspection on Friday, I've been raving about John to my realtor, attorney, family & friends. He did an incredible, thorough job and explained everything as we went along.

Awesome detailed reporting including notes, photos, etc. Amazing job!!

John Buckley of 20/20 Home Inspections was prompt, knowledgeable, thorough and courteous. He was also very patient in answering our many questions.

Based on our experience, we recommend this company without reservation.

My wife and I were so impressed on the details of the home inspection that John provided. His attention to the details doing the "in person" home inspection as well as the home inspection report were "above-and-beyond" of what we expected. We would definitely recommend John to anyone looking for a home inspector. Our concerns for both the major and minor points of the inspection were discussed with us in detail as well as what we needed to do to follow up on them. My wife and I are thankful that our realtor recommended 20/20 home inspection to us.
- B.L., South Brunswick Township NJ, December 2015
My wife and I were so impressed on how much detail John put into his inspection report. John does such a outstanding job with his inspections. The inspection report John prepares really helped with the decision to buy or cancel the purchase of the house. If you decide to have 20/20 Home Inspections do your home inspection, it will be on one of the best decisions you ever made. We were so happy that our realtor recommended 20/20 Home Inspections to us for our home purchase in Belmar, New Jersey.
- B.L., South Brunswick Township NJ, December 2015
John was thorough, professional, and knowledgable.
- B.G., Allentown NJ, December 2015
John Buckley = Excellent Home Inspector. John pays attention to detail. He doesn't drone on about unimportant things - he looks at everything and explains it in a manor that you can truly grasp. He is a master of his craft. We wish we met him 20 years ago - he is by far the best home inspector we have ever used. -Anthony & Vanessa Nuzzolo

- M.S., Port Saint Lucie FL, December 2015
I would highly recommend hiring John Buckley from 20/20 Home Inspection. John went through our home from top to bottom with a fine tooth comb and did not miss an inch. Did I mention this was the home we were selling and he was hired by our buyer?!? The report John wrote, which our buyers provided to us was so thorough and detail oriented. For this reason, when we found our next home there was no question as to who we would hire for the home inspection. At our home inspection, John was not only punctual (his "on time" is ten minutes early) and professional, but his inspection was meticulous. I believe that houses are not just homes, but also an investment. If you want to know what your investing in, John Buckley is the guy you want to have.
- K.M., Spring Lake NJ, November 2015
He explained everything very well, and removed a lot of the stress of the home inspection report process.

- M.L., Manasquan NJ, November 2015
Very good job John. went into great detail during inspection
- B.A., Stafford Township NJ, October 2015
John, thank you and Nick for the outstanding job you did on the inspection. I was very glad that major issues were addressed and identified, The remodel of the house was done nicely but your identifying the structural issues was very helpful to me. Just so you know that we had a builder look at the house (someone Susan Miller knew) and he thought there were structural issues that may have cost us $15,000-20,000 to repair. We decided to cancel the contract on the house. When we find another house we will be using 20/20 for our inspection. My wife and truly appreciate the job that you and Nick did. - Bernie & Joyce Lis
- B.L., South Brunswick Township NJ, October 2015
Really appreciate the down to earth approach. We had a much different experience with different inspectors on previous properties and this was by far the best. Would certainly use again!
- M.S., Toms River NJ, October 2015
John provided exceptional service. He is the consummate professional! We highly recommend him.
- J.B., Matawan NJ, October 2015
John, You went above and beyond with this inspection. I appreciate your detailed findings. With the purchase of this house we didn't have a lot of extra money to spend on repairs so your detailed report will greatly assist us in making a decision to buy or not to buy. Thanks for the great job you did.
- B.L., South Brunswick Township NJ, October 2015
Great job. Honest, professional, Knowledgeable, thorough and extremely responsive. Thx

- H.T., Pleasantville NY, October 2015
John was an excellent inspector. Very thorough, professional and polite. If it weren't for this guy I'd be in a terrible situation with a house. I would absolutely highly recommend John and use him again.
- M.L., Brick NJ, October 2015
John is a true professional. I was extremely pleased with his knowledge and how thorough he was with the inspection. He took the time to walk me through the process and answer all my questions. I received a very detailed inspection report which helped me to determine my next steps. I would highly recommend John to anyone seeking a qualified home inspector.
- J.K., East Brunswick NJ, September 2015
Complete and thorough inspection with a detailed report to ensure we understood all concerns. The pictures that show what is described as a problem with a photo of the correct way it is to be in the home is a tremendous help. Giving us the knowledge to understand the home is greatly appreciated. Thank you! Joann Gavin
- J.G., Newtown PA, September 2015
John is a true professional. His vast knowledge and expertise is apparent in every detailed explanation. His dedication and patience creates a wonderful home inspection experience. John provides an outstanding service in the best interest of the buyer.
- D.S., Tinton Falls NJ, September 2015
John is an extremely thorough and knowledgeable home inspector. He was far more detailed than any other inspector I have ever worked with and truly went above and beyond. The report is extremely detailed and John will put links and resources to help illustrate or explain things where needed. John also gave me several follow up calls as he had done some additional research on some of the issues that were uncovered and made sure I fully understood the implications of them. There were a number of major issues with the house and the sellers were unwilling to fix them and our contract was terminated. I would up renting for the time being but will absolutely call John the next time I need an inspector. I can't recommend him highly enough!
- J.V., Jericho VT, August 2015
Thanks, John for providing a valuable home inspection. Someone tried to convince us we didn't' need one since this was a new condo in a refurbished old building. However, you were very thorough and found some very important issues that require attention. Plus, you were friendly, easy to talk to and to work with. Home inspections can be intimidating for some, but you might it quite a comfortable experience. I would definitely recommend John to anyone needing this service.
- M.K., Morris Plains NJ, August 2015
In the past 30 years, I have owned 13 homes and John's inspection was by far the most comprehensive. John was pleasant to work with, as well as professional. I appreciate that he explained the difference between major and minor issues. His advice and guidance regarding corrective action was very helpful.
- E.C., Neptune City NJ, August 2015
I HIGHLY recommend John Buckley of 20/20 Home Inspection to perform a house inspection. John was at the house already inspecting the exterior before my arrival. I found John to be not only well-qualified, thorough and informed regarding all home inspection topics / issues, but willing to discuss issues detected in a friendly and forthright manner...the inspection was not rushed at all. Thank goodness I retained a home inspector of John’s caliber since there were a lot of safety issues, structural issues and a code violation or two John uncovered in the house he inspected for me. A less qualified inspector might have missed crucial issues John found. John saved me from potentially making an expensive / problem-ridden mistake had I purchased this house without knowing the full extent of all the problems. I wouldn’t hesitate to have another house inspected by him. I was VERY HAPPY with the job John did. Do yourself a favor and retain the very best home inspector…I’m so thankful I did. Thank you, John!!!!! Sincerely, Joann

- K.M., Brick NJ, June 2015
This was my second time using John after I used him for the first house we looked at. He is very thorough and easy to talk to and work with. Along with his great work, he is a great guy. Me and my family happened to end up at the same diner as him after our inspection and although we didn't see him, he paid for our bill. Now that's the kind of guy you want to do your home inspection along with the knowledge he comes with.

- N.W., Metuchen NJ, April 2015
John did a wonderful job inspecting the house we were looking to purchase and found several items that warranted further investigation.
