HomePro Okanagan President's Message
Thank you for visiting our site. Since beginning HomePro Inspections in 1990, the founder Owen Dickie had been performing inspections in the Okanagan longer than any other inspector. Throughout this time, his desire has remained the same. To provide our clients with an education about the home we are inspecting using only HIABC qualified inspectors.
Since we began, HomePro's customer satisfaction level is unsurpassed. This is due to our attention to detail, our willingness to explain what we see and friendly and helpful office staff. From your first contact with HomePro, you will find us helpful and professional.
If possible, we want you, our client, to participate in the entire inspection with us. A home inspection is an educational experience and when it comes to your next home, distance education may not the best method of delivery. The report that we provide is comprehensive and complete providing solutions to concerns discovered as well as explaining required maintenance.
Once again, thank you for visiting our site. If we can help you please contact us. We look forward to working with you.

HomePro's History In The Okanagan Valley
HomePro Inspections opened its doors in the Okanagan Valley in September 1990. Home inspections were basically unheard of at that time. In fact HomePro was the first Okanagan Home Inspection company to be established and stay in the industry. Homebuyers were unaware that this type of service existed and in fact most Realtors did not understand or believe home inspections would become a part of almost every Real Estate transaction.
Training was not available in Canada nor were there any credible associations or Canadian Standards of Practice in 1990. HomePro’s home inspectors traveled to Falls Church Virginia for class room training and on site inspections. In the last few years our inspectors have trained through programs offered by HIABC (Home Inspectors Association Of British Columbia.
ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) Standards of Practice were used until Canadian Standards were adopted in the mid 1990’s.
HomePro has played a pivotal role in the education of the public and Real Estate community in the last 27 years. We have always felt our role was to educate our clients and therefore we encourage client participation for the entire inspection. This gives our clients the opportunity to ask many questions and really understand the information in the written report the HOMEBOOK. We hold educational presentations for Realtors on a regular basis to help them understand technical issues that their clients may encounter.
The reporting system the HOMEBOOK is used in hundreds offices across Canada and the US. Each affiliate office is independently owned and operated. It was one of the first reporting systems developed in the US and many other reporting systems have been fashioned after it since.
The professional manner that HomePro conducts business with Homebuyers, Vendors and Real Estate professionals is evident in our track record of over 27 years inspecting Okanagan Valley buildings.
