I have and will continue to recommend Joel based on my experience during general inspection. Joel spent considerable amount of time with my wife and I as part of the home inspection - taking time to explain how to operate our home. This was not a checkbox exercise in inspecting the home rather and tutorial on many facets of the home. Joel is responsive and has assisted in addressing follow up questions several weeks following our inspection. I could not ask for more in terms of 1st time home buyer inspector.

Joel Mizrahi is the real thing. He is very professional and an absolute expert in the field of home inspection. My experience with Joel has been exemplary in every respect. He is like a trusted advisor who will give you the right guidance. He is very patient and for a first time buyer like me, he answered all of my questions patiently and gave us many tips on best practices for maintaining our home. He is very balanced in his assessment and does a thorough and comprehensive inspection. His report is very detailed with photographs and his system allows you to identify things that you want the seller to fix. Joel believes in long term relationships and he will support you even after your home inspection is done. I will recommend Joel without any hesitation and will definitely use his services in the future, if the need arises.

Joel conducted our home inspection earlier this month and our experience has been great. He went through every area of the house, along with every electrical and plumbing details. He was able to point out and explain clearly what the hazards are, what parts are done well and what are not. And also gave us a good idea of the kind of expense we could expect. The report he provided was equally thorough with appropriate pictures of problem areas. Whilst conducting the inspection he explained to us in details the working of the house, how HVAC has been configured, how water heater is working etc. With all the details in the report, we feel confident as a first time home buyer. We would highly recommend Joel for home inspections.
- P.S., July 2020
Knowledgeable and trustworthy! Highly recommend!
- C.R., July 2020
Joel, the best home inspector. His thorough inspection of home, guidance and reports helped me a lot to understand home better and negotiate. After home move in, Joel was more than 100% reachable any time to discuss the problem. In few mins (just 5 mins) of my text message, I will get a call from Joel to talk more in detail. He has greater patience, knowledge and expertise to explain. I would recommend Joel 100% for home inspection.
- S.P., Secaucus NJ, October 2019
Joel is simply AMAZING! He's kind and thorough. I hired him twice and I will again in the future when I buy houses, and I will recommend him to all my friends without hesitation. Both times, he spent 3 hrs to inspect my townhouses, and he responded to my texts and calls right away whenever I had questions. I feel that he really cares about his clients and always think from our perspective.
- X.C., May 2019

Joel is a awesome inspector. He is passionate, detailed oriented and very knowledgeable in the field. He detected the structural issues, gas leak and many other issues for the subject property. Joel potentially saved my family lives. I really appreciate his excellent services. You cannot go wrong with Joel. Give him a try, you will know how good he is. I bet you will ask for his inspections for your other properties.
- Z.L., Rego Park NY, October 2018
Joel was the consummate professional. He took his time to thoroughly inspect the property. He showed up as scheduled and delivered his finding in a timely manner. Would definitely recommend him and use him again. Thanks.
- B.B., North Bergen NJ, September 2018
There's a saying that you should never take a recommendation for an inspector from a Realtor. The idea is that a "good inspector" will be disliked by a Realtor because he will always find reasons to kill a deal. In the case of Joel Mizrahi, he is a total stickler ? but my complete confidence in his integrity and competence is exactly why I DID go through with an expensive transaction on a hundred-year-old house. Joel had already saved me from a transaction that, in retrospect, would have been a complete disaster for my family. When he explained exactly what I'd be facing in terms of hiring a "stucco guy" and a "master woodwork guy" and "custom window guy," I began to understand the totality of what I was dealing with. I'm an experienced homeowner for more than 20 years, but because of its beauty and charm, I just wasn't properly assessing what a hassle this place would be. Joel didn't try to talk me out of the buy; he simply laid out in a logical way what I'd be dealing with. I winded up falling in love with a house that was much more suitable for my family's needs. And when it sailed through Joel's rigorous inspection process, I had total peace of mind because I had already seen how seriously Joel takes his duty. He always remembers that the BUYER is his client, rather than kissing the Realtor's behind in hopes of future referrals. I give Joel my highest recommendation.
- M.M., May 2018
Thank you very much for your wonderful inspection!
- S.K., February 2018
Joel is the house doctor on call. He works very hard for his customers. He takes his time explaining and teaching ways to improve and correct the issues that he finds. Honesty is truly his middle name! I find you get what you pay for and Joel is the inspector who is worth every penny and more. He returns emails and phone calls about any issues that arises! Remember Joel works for you! There isn't another inspector out there that can match what Joel delivers. Thanks for being the best! JF November 2017
- J.F., Cranford NJ, November 2017

Very detail oriented inspector. Spends ample time for details and very patiently provides responses to your questions.
- Y.M., Woodbridge NJ, May 2017
Very thorough!
- A.D., March 2017
Joel is the most through and professional person in this field I have ever met. He is like the doctor you would like to have that will spend the time not only going over everything top to bottom, inside and out, forward and backward, and then take the time explain in layman's terms the whys, whats and options.
- M.F., Piscataway NJ, March 2017
Joel is an outstanding inspector! As first-time home buyers with limited knowledge about homes, we were nervous and needed a lot of guidance. It was important for us to find an inspector who was both knowledgeable and truly unbiased. We found Joel through an organization called IHINA (Independent Home Inspectors of North America) whereby members pledge to be objective. This coupled with Joel's stellar online reviews from prior customers prompted us to call him and sign him up. From beginning to end, we were so glad to have Joel as our inspector! He was extremely thorough in his inspection of the property. He did a terrific job in balancing the tasks of carefully analyzing the property and communicating with us along the way. He also volunteered lots of information about maintaining various aspects of the property, which was extremely helpful. Joel even found an issue that hadn't been disclosed and this repair was worth several thousands of dollars. Further, as first-time home buyers without much knowledge, we weren't always sure how to discern the severity of the inevitable findings that come up; Joel was there to put it all in perspective, and that really put our minds at ease. Joel's report was meticulous and well-organized, and even after he sent us the report, he continued to be very patient with us, making himself available to answer all of our follow-up questions. He even told us to call him years down then line when we eventually need to upgrade the water heater because he has an idea for how to install it! We will tell anyone who needs an inspector to use Joel -- he's a terrific inspector and simply a pleasant person to work with!
- , March 2017
Joel was wonderful to work with! He is professional, thorough, and practical. As first time homebuyers, my husband and I had a lot of questions about the inspection process and our home. Joel answered them and helped us feel informed about our prospective purchase! I just reviewed his report and it was detailed and the pictures are very helpful. I would absolutely recommend him to a friend!
- K.L., Jersey City NJ, March 2017
The feedback from my realtor and partner were that you were one of the most thorough inspectors they'd ever encountered. To top it off you have a great personality. I'm happy to have worked with you and will be requesting your services for any future purchases.
- B.C., New Brunswick NJ, February 2017

Joel is a wonderful home inspector. He was highly recommended to us by a friend and we were not disappointed. He was very thorough, informative, and knowledgeable. He not only made us aware of the issues that needed to be addressed before we purchased our home, but he also gave us tips on improvements all throughout the home. We will definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a home inspection.
- H.T., Mercerville NJ, June 2016
Joel did an outstanding job. He was thorough, yet focused in on the critical items. Joel arrived at the location timely, methodically and efficiently conducted the inspection, and issued very comprehensive reporting with photos within a couple of days as promised. Joel explained to us as buyers what he was examining and what he observed during the course of the home inspection. He was very receptive to questions, and answered them in terms that the layman understands. Oveall I recommend Joel as a seasoned professional who performed excellent work in a timely fashion. Throughout the engagement, from initial contact through report issuance and post reporting contact, Joel was very pleasant & cordial, and fully engaged with me. I am very happy to have engaged Joel for our home inspection and would highly recommend him. - JE -

Highly recommended. -- Keith, Princeton NJ

Called 1 day before my inspection scheduled but fortunately get a slot due to another buyer cancellation, was never expected the punctuality and professionalism.

The result is also on time.

Thanks, Joel, for your very thorough inspection of the townhouse. The photos definitely help with your explanations and suggestions for repair, etc.
- K.M., October 2013
Thank you for your service. I could not have asked for a more courteous and thorough inspector.
- H.H., October 2013
Going from a small home to a much larger, more complicated home can be a scary thing. Our new house has features and equipment that our prior house did not have and the house we are buying is older as well. Thank you Joel for not just inspecting this house to the fullest, but also for explaining and making suggestions both pre and post sale. Not only did your knowledge and experience amaze me, but I really felt like you were on MY team and gave me the practical information I needed to make informed decisions moving forward. Lastly, I really appreciated you talking to me on the phone even after the inspection was over and for the guidance you provided. I cant say THANK YOU enough time. Thanks so much Joel.
- D.H., September 2013
I highly recommend Joel Mizrahi for your home inspection.Being in the construction field for 30 years myself, I can see he knows exactly what he is doing. Along with his kind nature and attention to detail, he made the whole inspection comforting and pleasant.

- R.W., September 2012
As a first time home buyer I thought I was getting a great deal on a foreclosure property not realizing the scope of everything that was truly wrong with the house. Joel was extremely attentive to all of the details and made me realize just how many problems the house had before I jumped into something blindly and would have had a tremendous amount of issues had he not been so thorough.
- A.V., September 2012
We bought our first home 12 years ago and had it inspected by Joel. We were so impressed with his knowledge and attention to detail, that we looked for him 12 years later, as we are now getting ready to buy our second home. We wholeheartedly recommend him and his work without hesitation! Worth every penny. Debbie & Andre Bell
- D.B., August 2012

- T.S., April 2012
We were overwhelm by Joel knowledge during house inspection. Definitely will recommend him to anyone looking to buy their new home. We give him an A+ rating.

- R.F., May 2011
Joel is thorough in his inspection. He also takes the time to explain his findings and review any questions a buyer has about a property. He also offers his time for future questions relating to home improvements from the inspection as well as any property upkeep recommended during the inspection. I would recommend Joel to anyone purchasing a new dwelling.

Thorough professional, explained all the issues during home inspection. Very impressed with the detailed work, as well as the quality of the report
- S.B., December 2010
I've had two encounters w/ home inspectors previously and both times found myself being taken advantage of due to my lack of knowledge and experience on houses. Joel was very different. He was honest, thorough and patient, everything that a home inspector should be. He spent 3 hours on my 4-yr old 3-bedroom townhouse, looking into every details, explaining to us what the problems were, how everything is operated and how the house should be cared for, patiently answering our questions. The whole process made me feel that he's not only an inspector, but a friend who put my interest and safety on top of everything. I think he's a rare find in his profession.
- X.C., October 2010
Mr. Mizrahi's professionalism and congeniality was a welcomed stabilizer to an otherwise arduous process. He provided every detail necessary to negotiate the best and most fair agreement for all parties concerned.
- R.H., September 2010
Joel did an excellent job. Once he confirmed that there were no problems with the "big things" (structure, utilities, etc.) he opened our eyes to smaller issues with the potential to become future maintenance concerns or cosmetic issues that should be corrected up front. Joel had a positive approach and interacted well and constructively with the seller's representative present during the inspection. We would definitely recommend Joel as a thorough and professional home inspector.
- D.S., August 2010
Joel was very meticulous and offered useful advice.
- M.K., August 2010
We were very happy with the inspection performed by Joel Mizrahi of Metropolitan Home Inspections.
