Retired Scottsdale Fire Chief & Chairman of the Scottsdale Building & Fire Advisory Board
I have worked in the public safety field for over 30 years and for over 20 years worked for the Scottsdale Fire Department as the Fire chief. Also, I served as the chairman of the Scottsdale Building and Fire advisory board for 2 terms.
Over the years I have had a number of contacts with various home inspectors who claimed to have the knowledge and training to inspect the various components of a home and write a report that should give buyer's peace of mind as to the construction of that home.
I choose to accompany Mr. Bray on his inspection of my home to verify or dispute his findings as to the compliance to all codes enforced in the City of Scottsdale. I found that Mr. Bray not only knew the codes but knew how to apply them to the construction of the house. He was well versed in the various differences between codes in cities across the valley and had taken the time to understand where to apply these codes. It was very evident that he not only knew the building standards but also had a long history in the home construction industry.
Over the 5 hours Mr. Bray spent inspection my home he displayed a professional knowledge of the components of a home necessary to provide a report that should give you peace of mind that the job was well done.

My wife and I were introduced to Brewster of Probe Specialists during the summer of 2013. We had a small window of opportunity to make a purchase in Paradise Valley, and needed to work with a responsive and highly competent home inspection company. Brewster?s attention to detail and tenacity proved to be more than worth the investment, not only did he give us peace of mind with our final purchase but highlighted a significant defect with a prior house we were under contract on saving us tens of thousands of dollars.
I would highly recommend Brewster's services.
During the construction of our home, Probe Specialists served as our inspection company from slab to finish. They did an excellent job of pointing out any discrepancies and assisted with change orders. They made our builder pay attention to details and were very knowledgeable about the building standards and specs. I would recommend Probe Specialists to anyone seeking a comprehensive home inspection.
I just want to take a moment to let you know how impressed I am with your services. First, your company was flexibility in immediately scheduling the initial inspection and accommodating my hours on the final inspection. More importantly, your thoroughness in the inspection was outstanding. You identified issues that hadn't been identified by the original owner's inspector. Your impeccable service didn't end there however. You prepared the most professional report with pictures and a layman's explanation for me to understand. Lastly, your assistance in introducing me to the mechanics of my new home during the final inspection was greatly appreciated. You can count on me referring future clients to your service.
I just wanted to thank you for such an EXCELLENT recommendation. Brewster was phenomenal! He was very thorough and priced very reasonably. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an honest inspection of their potential home. Not only did he provide an in-depth report(photos included), he went thru the checklist with us and explained how to fix the minor repairs. He went above and beyond his job?s requirements. I am very grateful to you for your recommendation and to him for making my first home buying experience, an extremely informative one.
We really appreciated having someone of your caliber working on our inspections. Quality is a great form of art.
