The company

Local business, not a franchise

Desert Diamond Home Inspections is a privately owned local Tucson business. We are not a franchise. Your money stays within the community.

Honest and ethical

We are proud to run an ethical business with honesty and integrity. Customer service comes first and we work hard to make our clients happy.

We do not give kickbacks to realtors for referrals (pay-to-play). In addition,  we do not accept kickbacks from other professionals we recommend. Recommendations to and from us are solely based on reputation and quality.

LGBT friendly

We treat all our clients equally, regardless of their age, race, religion, gender or any other personal preferences. Really, we do not care which bathroom you use or for what reason. Just wash your hands, please.

Military/LEO/First responder discount

We appreciate our brave members of the military, law enforcement, and first responders, who risk their lives for others every day in the line of duty. Show your military, LEO, or first responder ID and receive a discount on your inspection fee.

Dog friendly

We love pets. As long as they are friendly, we are happy to have your dogs around. The inspection might take a little longer though due to belly scratches and playing fetch. We also support the Pima Animal Care Center. No matter whether you are looking for a new companion of the canine or feline persuasion, or a place to volunteer your time, please consider visiting the Pima Animal Care Center first.

Highly rated

Our customers love us, the quality of our work, the attention to detail, and the amount of time we spend with them. Check out our reviews on Facebook for some client testimonials.

The Home Inspector

Alex Byron - Home Inspector
Alex Byron – Arizona Certified Home Inspector # 60786

I have been a licensed home inspector in Arizona and inspecting houses full-time since 2015. I inspect homes in the greater Tucson area including Marana, Oro Valley, Sahuarita, and Green Valley.

I am a certified ASHI home inspector. ASHI is the American Society of Home Inspectors, the most respected professional association for home inspectors in North America. Being an ASHI member means that I have passed the most rigorous technical examinations in effect today. No other professional society can match the credentials of an ASHI inspector.

I abide by the ASHI Code of Ethics which has integrity, honesty, and objectivity as its core principles. This means I only work for you, the client, and have only your best interests in mind.

I enjoy talking to you, the client. At the end of each inspection, I will take you on a tour of the house and show you any important issues I found, where the shut-offs are, how to change the air filters, provide various home maintenance tips, and most importantly, answer each and every question that you might have.

The most frequent words clients have used to described me and my work are professional, thorough, friendly, and beyond expectations.

Before becoming a home inspector, I enjoyed a successful career in the computer hi-tech industry spanning almost two decades. I worked hands-on with computers and writing technical documentation, providing help and instructions to computer users around the world.

I also bring to the job my German sense of organization and attention to detail, technical aptitude, ability to explain technical concepts in an easily understandable manner, and passion for helping people.
