Our Mission: We exist to equip and empower property owners with inspections services that support critical decisions.

At Southern Brothers Inspections, we provide an array of inspection services in Northeast Florida, including the counties surrounding Jacksonville, Florida.  Our reach extends to the Florida counties of Duval, St. Johns, Nassau, Clay, the Beaches, Baker, Union, Bradford, Columbia, Alachua, Putnam, Flagler and Volusia. We have a vision of inspecting every home in Northeast Florida!

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.
