AJF Engineering and Inspections
Creating Peace of Mind for Arizona Home Buyers and Sellers since 1996
Most of us take our home very personally. It’s our haven, our cozy place—so it’s only natural that we feel a little edgy when every nook and cranny has to be inspected to complete a sale. And that’s exactly the reason that savvy buyers and sellers rely on the caring professionalism of the AJF Engineering and Inspections team to do the job.
Vice President Sharon Wolfe-Furman notes that novice buyers may not have an understanding of the scope of an inspection. “I liken it to an annual physical with your Physician. You find out which systems are good, which things need modification over time, and what issues, if any, need immediate attention. We then recommend specialists—HVAC pros, electricians, etc., who are licensed to delve deeper into flagged systems and make needed repairs. That’s why many homeowners call us to do a pre-sale inspection so there are no surprises to derail a closing.”
Although ALF inspectors can’t ‘see through walls,’ the company offers an unmatched array of free warranties and home protection services to protect both buyer and seller:
- 90-day Limited Structural and Mechanical Warranty
- 90-day ‘Mold-safe’ Protection
- 90-day Water and Sewer Line coverage
- 5-year Platinum Roof Protection
- 120-day Radon Protection Plan
- “Recall-check” enrollment for all major appliances, HVAC, water treatment systems.
“A significant part of our business involves luxury homes, ranging from 5,000 to 12,000 sq. ft., with complex security, electrical and lighting systems, built-in appliances, and major outdoor/pool layouts. All of our inspectors have this level of expertise, regardless of the size or condition of a home.”
AJF has been the top Inspection firm in the Phoenix area for nearly 20 years. Many of their certified inspectors have been with them for decades, and they are welcoming 2nd-generation professionals into the company. President Paul Furman was selected Arizona’s first “Inspector of the Year” in 2017 by Arizona Journal of Real Estate and Business in recognition of his firm’s work “helping people make informed decisions” about their real estate purchases. “Paul and I truly enjoy working with our team, and we believe that up-beat, well trained employees retain customers who want to work with us time and time again.”
