Gary was incredibly flexible - as we had a bit of a crazy schedule to work around. He was easy to reach when we had to adjust times, and was amazingly accommodating! Through out the inspection he carefully explained things and patiently answered our questions. We have dealt with other inspectors in the past who have whipped through the house and while the inspection may have been completely accurate, we felt as though we were being a pain asking questions as the inspector was definitely rushed. Dealing with Gary was completely the opposite. He took us through the inspection and was extremely thorough. This was a house that had lots of renovations to do and he gave us very detailed information about the house as well as shared his opinion (as a good friend or member of the family would do). He went above and beyond in every way, including contacting us well after we had received our report to let us know about a product on the market that could help us remedy one of the concerns we had about the house. Gary was instrumental in helping us make the decision of whether or not we wanted to go through with this purchase and we are writing because we want to share with others the excellent service he gave to us. Hopefully this is our last home purchase, but if not, we will definitely seek Gary's services again.
Gary is very professional and thorough. It was a pleasure to deal with him on two occasions. He explains each step with you and will answer any and all questions you have. He makes the home inspection process very understandable. His written report and photos are very detailed and informative.
Thank you for your review. It was nice meeting you both and being part of your journey from another province to Alberta. I'm glad we were able to eventually find you a nice home - minus the 'Gas Leak' of course! :-)
The home inspection provided by Gary was detailed and thorough. We would recommend Gary to anyone looking for a "top notch" home inspector who is experienced and detailed. Not only did he provide us with a well written and detailed inspection report, but he also answered numerous questions for us before and during the inspection. His level of service was excellent. He helped us to really understand all aspects of the home we were purchasing including questions we should be asking during the home purchase process. If you want someone who is experienced, knowledgeable and detailed and who will conduct a home inspection that you can really trust, then hire Gary.
Hi Vern & Kaye,
Thank you for your review and comments. It was a pleasure meeting you both and 'Good Luck' in your new home; it really is a superb spot and home!
We used Gary Rose at Sherlock Homes Inspectors for multiple pre-possession inspections of a new home that we built and we are tremendously happy that we did. I don’t normally write online reviews, for a number of reasons. However, the exceptional job that Gary did really demanded one.
There is no doubt that Gary Rose is eminently qualified – his long list of technical qualifications and accomplishments speak for themselves. However, it is his integrity, attention to detail, and the genuine support that he gave us that set him apart in our eyes. It was really great to find someone that shared our views on quality and who was a trusted partner in a very stressful process.
He did a fantastic job in his inspections – helping to identify many items that needed remediation – and took a lot of time to explain things in a way that someone without any construction experience can understand. He also bent over backwards to accommodate requests (e.g. last minute scheduling), even when his personal commitments would have made it easy for him to find a reason not to. He exemplifies what it means to be a trusted professional.
Gary really should charge more for his services because the peace of mind he provides is priceless. Not only will we continue to use Gary throughout the post-possession inspection schedule of our new home (and beyond) but Gary will also be inspecting homes for our loved ones in the near future.
Thank you for your review and comments, it is much appreciated.
The attitude of senior site management, of the Okotoks new home developer, leaves a lot to be desired. Their lack of accountability, responsibility and continual excuses to address issues, created by them, is incredible!
The fact that drywall is not square and there s a very noticeable bulge in the main ceiling area of the lounge due to their poor planning and building practises and that the Radon system is not installed to current standards, to then be told by them that this is all within the tolerances and acceptable by the Alberta building code, this is in addition to the issues discovered and repairs carried out so far, is beyond belief!
It never ceases to amaze me, how New Home Developers and their constant lack of accountability, quality and standards, are not stated in their glossy sales brochure at the point of sale; but then to be open, honest and transparent, about rectifying future issues, they d never sell a property!
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
