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.
In the last year I have hired three different home inspectors to inspect different houses.
Gary Rose was without doubt the best. Why? The report. Gary's report did not have 'filler', by that I mean advertising and general comments not specifically related to the particular house. Gary's report is organized so it's easy to read. It begins with a two page summary of the important items. On top of that Gary is personable, friendly and patient. The 'patient' is important because when you accompany him on the inspection he takes all the time you need in explaining the whys and whats of items so you have a good understanding. He 'smiles'. So you actually enjoy joining him on the inspection.
Hi Peter & Roseanne,
Many thanks for your review and kind comments.
It was very nice to meet you both; it was my pleasure to explain things as we explored your new home.
Should you have any questions when you move into the property, please feel free to contact us.
Gary has a very calm courteous personality which helped me tremendously while taking his training course. The wealth of knowledge he shared during his training program gave me the confidence I needed to move forward in my training and ultimately complete my test inspection. I was very impressed from the initial phone conversation to the ongoing emails after completing his program, thank you Gary!
Many thanks for your comments. Your ability, eagerness and practical approach to Home Inspection is superb! I have no doubt you'll become a great inspector!
