If you play your cards right at this stage of the home-buying process, you’ll have a whole lot to look forward to as a homeowner—but you have to take the right precautions before making any rash decisions. That’s why Jay dedicates his career to helping his clients learn what steps they need to take in order to protect their prospective investment.

With over 20 years of experience throughout the construction and real estate industries, including owning his own contracting business in Vancouver, Jay knows how a home should be built—and he also knows what to look for in the event that something went wrong over the course of construction. Having such a strong background in construction, as well as a keen eye for detail, Jay knows exactly what to look for no matter the age of the home, whether it’s an older home, been remodeled, or had an addition added to the home. With Jay in your corner, you’ll be in position to make a smart, confident, and informed home purchase that you’ll continue to enjoy well into the future.

A Home Inspector Who Is Attentive, Responsive, and Knowledgeable

  • The real estate industry is ever changing, and it takes committed effort to stay on track and ahead of the curve—and that’s why Jay takes continuing education courses so that he can continue to provide the highest quality product for every client
  • It’s no fun to be left in the dark when you’re about to make one of the biggest investments of your life—but fortunately, Jay involves his clients as much as possible, inviting every home-buyer to be present for their inspection so that he can go over his findings in person
  • Every question deserves an answer, and Jay will work tirelessly to get you the answers you need—even if you give him a call months after the inspection is over!

Outside of his career as a home inspector, Jay enjoys working at his hobby farm, fishing, flying drones, and generally enjoying the outdoors. Jay is a member of the Westview flying club, and he loves to fly around British Columbia to do sightseeing in the mountains and the coastal regions.
