A Winning Combination

Welcome to Buy Wise Inspections, Sonoma County’s premier inspection company and a BOARD CERTIFIED MASTER INSPECTOR. After decades in public safety and service – firefighter, building inspector, lab analyst, and code enforcement officer – founder Juan de la Cruz realized he had a unique set of skills and insight desperately lacking in the private inspection industry. With a passion for helping others, coupled with decades of experience and training related to building science, Buy Wise Inspections was born.


Buy Wise Inspections is dedicated to placing the needs and interests of our clients first while simultaneously elevating the standards by which all home inspection companies operate. You will benefit from our passion and continuing education and training. We never stop learning, staying on top of the latest developments, tools, and technology available to deliver unparalleled quality and expertise.
We are trusted and recommended by real estate agents, lenders, and others who understand that longevity in business is driven by honesty, integrity, and the referrals that come from happy customers. It’s our role to ensure you sell, buy, rent, or renovate informed, empowered, and confident in your decisions. By putting people over profits and creating a culture of improvement and growth, Buy Wise Inspections challenges its employees, referral partners, associates, and friends to join in creating a stronger community for all of Us.

Wisdom is the result of knowledge coupled with experience. Courses, certifications, and training are great, but application of that knowledge is what brings about true understanding. It isn’t enough to know how a structure is built and the nuances of the materials used to make it. Our having been in hundreds of buildings in various stages of construction, modification, decay, and distress, means that you’ll benefit from the wisdom we bring to your inspection. Your safety, comfort, and investment are our utmost concern!
