Montreal Home Inspector
“When you buy a radio, or a car, you get a manual. With a house, there’s no owner’s guide. We [home inspectors] are like a mobile manual for houses. We point out the problems, but we also give people an explanation of how things are supposed to work, and advice on who to call when it doesn’t. Through us, people get a much better outlook on what they’re buying. I enjoy telling people how things work.”
Charles called on the Mose Inspection team to help him with the purchase of his first three buildings before gutting each one from A to Z, including updating the electrical and plumbing systems. He learned a whole lot, and loved every minute of it. “I had a fun experience renovating. You’re creating something, putting together a work of art. I love to look at the whole system, but also the fine details, the finishing.”
His passion for renovation and houses led him to enroll in the Vanier Home Inspection Program and become an inspector himself. “I have a passion for it.” he says. “I love houses. I love seeing something different, something new every time.”
Charles is a people person. With ten years of working as an attendant with Air Canada, he’s a skilled communicator, and enjoys making sure people are well taken care of. He sees between 500 and 1000 people a flight. He likes to talk, to express his ideas. “It’s an important skill for a home inspector too.”
With a lot of experience buying homes himself, Charles puts himself into the shoes of the buyer, and makes sure they know what they’re getting themselves into. He provides detailed reports and takes the time to ensure the buyer understands any problems a home might have, and how those problems might be fixed.
Charles is a fully insured member in good standing with the AIBQ. He speaks and can provide reports in English or French. He also speaks Spanish and Portuguese.
