The Best

Ted has been our home inspector for all our property purchases in and around Vancouver. We cannot recommend him highly enough--for his professionalism, thoroughness, honesty (above all), verbal and written communications. He has saved us thousands by giving us the highs and lows of the three separate condo and townhouse purchases we've made over the last 20 years. He saved us from buying a leaky condo, which we thought looked wonderful until we did the walkaround with him and read his comprehensive report. He takes time to explain everything! We wouldn't dream of moving without a home inspection by Ted. Thanks and thanks again, Ted.

Company Response

Hi Anne & Ian
I have enjoyed our history together. First of all you are very keen participants during the inspection process. That makes a big difference for me as I do enjoy not just pointing out deficiencies but providing, in a logical progression, what may have happened and what will be required to make it good again and also to maintain it. This is only possible when I spend, at a minimum, twice the industry standard inspection time. The industry has always tried to fit in 2 inspections per day. It still does but the inspectors are stretched a little thin considering they are composing an inspection report with photos during that inspection period. I’m fortunate I've been able to maintain my inspection standards throughout the years when most other inspectors are fighting over being the cheapest and the fastest, ingratiating themselves with real estate agents for referrals and producing really nice looking generic websites without samples of their inspection reports. The report demonstrates exactly what you are paying for. I’m always amused when inspectors, while trying to impress potential clients on their thoroughness, leave out the most important bit: the sample inspection report, their main product.
Happy trails...
