Our Mission: Is to assist you in making the process of home buying as seamless as possible and to report what we discover in order to provide you with the best advantage and knowledge to make an informed decision, without alarming you. We do not base our inspections on “Pass” or “Fail”. They are an unbiased, non-invasive, non-code compliant visual examination of the foundation and basement, roof, attic, HVAC and water systems, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as the general condition of the structure itself.
I look for poor construction practices and general maintenance issues. Most importantly, I note any fire and/or safety issues that need to be addressed, and I help to educate you on the overall condition of the property.
The Home Inspection service has become a very important part of buying a home. As well, finding a good Certified Home Inspector is equally as important. Becoming a Certified Home Inspector requires many hours of learning. A Home Inspector is very much like a General Practitioner, we know a little about a-lot of things. We are generalists, we look at all aspects of the home. By having your home inspected you do not have to hire a electrcian to check that the panel is safe, a plumber to make sure everything is vented properly, a roofer, a builder, etc.. The inspection is not a pass or fail – we are there only to point out possible concerns that may require further investigation by a professional. Also, this will help with the purchasing process, you and your Realtor can come to a fair price with the sellers or have the concern repaired before entering your new home. This way you will know your home is safe for you and your family.
Your inspection covers many areas of the home as pointed out on or website www.proactiveinspections.ca , and once you receive your report you will notice it includes recommendations for improvements with many photos as well as example photos and explanations. We are also only a phone call away if you have any questions.
We are flexible with scheduling 7 days of the week for the convenience of our clients.

We have been married for 36 years after dating for a brief 9 months. We have 3 beautiful grown children, two daughters, a son, a daughter-in-law and 2 sons-in-laws and first grandchild arrived in spring of 2017. We lived in Grande Prairie for 25 years. Five years ago we were ready for a change in scenery so we moved to Vancouver Island. We had only been to the island once prior for 4 days. We were on Vancouver Island for 5 years and we absolutely loved it and believe that it is one of the best places in Canada to live! We met many new people and contacts new relationships with the people of Vancouver Island. But, with a family that is growing we felt it was time to come back to our roots. We are looking forward to meeting old friends and making new business and personal relationships.
