  • "In 12 years as Agents in the Ottawa area, we have dealt with a great number of home inspectors, and there is only one name we have come to trust 100%.
    TOTALLY professional, trustworthy, and aware of the dynamics at play, Georges is as knowledgeable, detail-oriented, conscientious and thorough as he is pleasant.  Without fail, his unmatched knowledge of the building industry, codes, best practices and going rates make him our favorite choice for our clients who are purchasing or looking for pre-listing inspections.
    Tensions can run high during inspections, but Georges brings a high level of rationality and analysis to the table, breaking issues down into the realm of common sense.  He is an invaluable part of our team and we are thankful for being able to call on his expertise. 
    Thanks for all your great help, Georges!"
