12K Inspections & Still Growing

Born in England Ivan Mose (the fonder of Mose Home Inspection Services) immigrated to Canada and worked as an electrical engineer for Pratt and Whitney working on high profile military projects. “That was an exciting time for me. As a child I wanted to join the Navy, working on those ships was a childhood dream come true. Once I even got carried off the deck of a ship in a storm dangling from a 30-foot cable by a helicopter. That is a story for another day.”

That’s not me but that’s what happened, except at night, during a storm!

After 30 years working behind a desk, Ivan decided it was time for a change, but a change to what? One day while bored and looking for things to do around the house he asked his wife what do I do now? Anne his wife who was reading the local paper said “Why not take a course on home inspection? You like to work around houses and there is an advertisement for a course right here. Great idea, he thought. After all, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Ian took the courses and received his certification and started to look for work.

When to Expand Your Team?

The business was slow in the beginning, but after being interviewed by the Montreal Gazette in 2006, the phone started ringing off the hook. Ivan realized he needed help, his daughter in law was just beginning her first maternity leave. “I’ll get her to help me answer the phones until things calm down” he thought. She is still working for Ivan today.

When my daughter Carol joined the roster of inspectors we represented, it became clear to me that we were a d

Here are some signs it may be time to look for help in running your inspection business:

  • You are charging appropriately for your services but you are turning down inspections because you are too busy.
  • You are feeling a little burnt out, inspecting all day, writing reports into the night and sometimes on weekends. Ignoring family and other priorities.
  • Your office work is piling up, sending reports, filing your taxes…
  • You have little time for sales and business development.
  • You want to add additional inspection services but don’t have the specific skill sets and/or licenses.

There’s a huge demand for female home inspectors in our industry, and it isn’t being met. According to The American What kept him moving forward was the desire to do more and do better. It was exciting to see how far the business could grow. Mose Home Inspection Services now has over 10 home inspectors that work under Ivan’s tutelage.

“It was scary in the beginning, taking on the responsibility of having people depend on the business to earn their living.”

Amazing experience with Carol Mose who helped me with a pre-purchase inspection! She was very approachable and... observant, and informed me of all her first impressions on-site. This gave me greater understanding of any conditions as I was able to ask any quick questions on the spot. Her reports are the most thorough that I've seen and include diagrams to help explain what any physical signs mean and potential consequences. Could not have asked for a better inspector!read more

Carol was wonderful to work with for our pre-purchase inspection. She was professional, thorough and communicative,... taking the time to explain her findings as we went through the house. After the inspection, we felt we had clear knowledge of the condition of the house (both pros and cons), allowing us to move forward with the purchase with confidence. Highly recommend!read more

Everyone we talked with was really informative and helpful. Michael was our inspector and was phenomenal.
