Peter Gillespie, owner of Brass Tacks Inspection Services, achieved the Certificate in Home Inspection through Dalhousie University. This intense program offered all aspects of home inspection training and has given him a leg up in the industry. His eye for fine detail, and drive for perfection, adds to his talent of being one of the best home inspectors in HRM.
Peter began his passion with homes and construction at an early age. His father, a contractor living on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, had Peter employed on numerous home renovations and construction projects. Peter learned at a young age how the fine details and looking deeply into the problems home owners face, offered him the ability to see small issues that could potentially expand to larger more expensive issues. Basically, he got down to the “Brass Tacks” of construction at an early age. His career path took him into sales, more specifically with the flooring industry. This training and career path added to his interest in homes and construction as he continued his work with residential renovations and construction.
Peter is meticulous in his work. He looks at each home as one he would be interested in buying for his family. What is hidden within this home as a potential issue for a new home owner? What is it about this home that makes me want to put in an offer right away? Whether you are looking to purchase a home, or are looking for someone to pre-inspect your home, Brass Tacks Inspection Services is the Home Inspection Company you are looking for!
