Our History


Ray Ali, the son of East Indian & Italian immigrants, owns and operates Housemaster Of The Bronx, a national residential and commercial property inspection franchise. Ray was born in the lower east side of Manhattan and later moved to the Throggsneck section of the Bronx, where he completed his education in marine engineering.

He started his engineering career as an engineer in tankers and cargo ships which gave him the opportunity to travel the world.  Ray later decided to return to the Bronx, where he ultimately was responsible for property inspections and repairs for The Archdiocese of New York.

During his time with the Archdiocese, Ray decided to start his own company doing home inspections. That was over 20 years and over 7000 inspections ago.

During your inspection, Ray will go over the main systems and components of your home, such as the roof, the heating system, the plumbing, the electrical, etc… He will let you know the condition of each component as well as how to maintain or repair if needed.

If you have any questions or want to make an appointment for an inspection, call Ray today at 718-518-9870.
