After already earning a certificate of training through Carson Dunlop, I decided to hire Gary for his one on one training and mentoring before doing my practical license test inspection. 3 days with Gary were every bit as, if not more, valuable in backing up months of book work. Gary has a huge amount of knowledge and a very wide breadth of experience. The training was worth every penny and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for training for anyone, and he’d definitely be the guy I would want to hire to inspect a home I was buying. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience.
Many thanks for your review and comments. Just the fact that you were prepared to travel from Edmonton, stay over in Calgary and attend training in Okotoks, speaks volumes about what we offer. You will make a great inspector as you possess all the right qualities, detail and attitude that are required in order to make a good inspector. Your test inspection report was very well constructed and very detailed. I'd actually go as far as to say, it was far superior to reports I've seen from inspectors currently running around Calgary and Okotoks and carry the designation of a CMI; it's laughable!
Gary inspected a house for us recently and cannot recommend him enough. He was very thorough and flagged all issues no matter how small they may seem. He produced the report for us the next day and went the extra mile with following up and supporting us in any way he could. In the end he saved us money and flagged an issue that otherwise may have gone unnoticed. If we ever need a home inspection in the future we will definitely be using Gary again!
Gary inspected a house for us. He is very responsive to emails and text messages, patiently and clearly answers questions, and very good at explaining things to a lay person. You know that he is in your court when you observe how thoroughly and meticulously inspects the home. The home inspection report was completed the morning after the inspection and was very well done with pictures, some video and clearly written descriptions of issues and recommended actions/followup. Gary found several issues with the house and one of the issues would have costs thousands to address. We plan on using Gary to inspect the another house in the near future.
Many thanks for the review Lena, it was a pleasure working with you. I'm also pleased we were able to save you lots of stress; not to mention $20,000.00 plus dollars!
I look forward to inspecting your new home. 'Good Luck' with your search.

Gary helped reviewing the work of another inspector that made claims that were not supported by the evidence/observations and provided everything I needed to resolve the issue. If you need a real expert - Gary's the guy with the experience referred to by other inspectors.
The statements and claims made by the 'Certified Master Home Inspector', in his report, without proper evidence, tests or foundation and based on what would seem, nothing more than pure guesswork, were too ridiculous for words! I'm pleased we were able to assist you in disputing his claims and that you were able to move forward with your legalities.
Thank you for the review.
