Home Inspections Halifax / Dartmouth Nova Scotia

Home Inspector Andrew Buchanan

Andrew started his career in financial services, helping and serving  customers and has a passion for customer service. He says he quickly realized that his true passion was for real estate - design, property management, renovations, construction and home maintenance.  Having completed the Nova Scotia Realty course in 2009, and after many years of owning a full service Property Management company and working on numerous construction projects from old to new, volunteering with Habit for Humanity since 2007 and dedicating his spare time to these pursuits and experiencing first-hand the significance of receiving top notch home advice, it became very clear Andrew had a passion for home inspection services. He decided to venture into this business and says he has now ‘become the home inspector he’d always wished he had!’

His personal goal as the Canadian Residential Inspection Services home inspector for Halifax/Dartmouth is to provide clients with amazing unmatched service satisfaction, an enjoyment of the buying process, a learning opportunity, high quality defect recognition, reliable, and comprehensive information to assist them in making those ever important decisions that come with owning a home. He specializes in translating technical information into practical terms so that his customers receive not just a comprehensive report, but also a clearer understanding of what they need to know when buying a home and how to protect such a huge investment after the sale finalizes.  Andrew's customers describe him as "customer centric, knowledgable, thorough, friendly, professional, and with a knack for explaining things in a way that's really easy to understand."
