Our Mission: We equip and empower property owners, present and future, with inspection services that support informed decisions.

At Southern Brothers Inspections, we provide general home inspections in Jacksonville, Florida and surrounding areas including, but not limited to, Duval, St. Johns, Nassau, Clay and the Beaches. Our vision is to inspect every home in Jacksonville!

Our core values are Education, Integrity and Craftsmanship. Each of these values is evident in our partnership with homeowners, realtors, buyers and sellers. We have learned the difference between a house and a home. Our founders have been on every end of a real estate transaction, from buying to selling, from framer to builder, from architect to engineer. Each has it’s role, but none more important than the hands and feet of the homeowner, who truly make it a home.
