High Standards Guaranteed
In British Columbia, all home inspectors MUST be licensed. At A Buyer's Choice, our home inspectors not only meet the rigorous requirements of BC Certification and Licensing but we also carry comprehensive insurance. We recommend that no one ever use an unlicensed or uninsured inspector. The are still many home inspectors operating in BC without a license or insurance at all. A Buyer’s Choice Nanaimo is licensed and insured.
BC Licensed Home Inspector
Dan Allarie is A Buyer's Choice Home Inspections franchisee serving the Nanaimo, Lantzville, and Ladysmith areas. He is a BC Licensed Home Inspector and remains an associate member in good standing with the Canadian National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (CanNACHI). To prepare for the role, Dan undertook a rigorous training program via the Carson Dunlop Training Institute, which is the most comprehensive home inspector training system in North America. Dan’s hands-on home inspection experience is informed by his twenty years in the construction industry and also by his experience as a Journeyman industrial electrician. Dan is currently licensed under the British Columbia Business Practices and Consumer Protection Branch; BC License #61355.
Dan hails from Vermilion, Alberta and first began calling Nanaimo his home in 1992. Dan returned to Alberta in 2000 to embark on his electrician training as well as to gain some valuable work experience. When the Allarie family started missing the gentle island winters a few years later in 2006, they happily migrated back to Nanaimo. The opportunity to purchase A Buyer’s Choice franchise presented itself exactly six years later; a welcome change that seemed like a natural fit.
A home inspection is important to potential home owners and realtors alike. Being a homeowner himself, Dan understands the value that a home inspection can bring to the purchase & sale as well as the maintenance of the home. In addition to a full range of home inspection services (including pre-purchase inspections, potable water sampling and radon gas detection) he also offers valuable maintenance advice informed by both his personal home-maintenance practices and experience in the field. If you ask what A Buyer’s Choice, Nanaimo can do for you; Dan will tell you that a job well done is a number one priority and his mission is to, “assist, comfort, and protect” clients in every phase of their homeownership journey.
If you're not in the Nanaimo area, don't worry, chances are there is A Buyers Choice in your area.
