We found the inspection report to be very thorough with advice on small things that could be acted upon to improve the quality of the home. Meeting with Raul on site at the end of the inspection was very helpful in understanding the written report. I would suggest that prospective home buyers meet on site with Raul if possible, his explanations of what he sees as a possible problem in future are much easier to understand if actually viewing what to look for.

Thanks so much Raul for your thorough and comprehensive inspection and report, and for answering all our questions with patience and clarity. We have no hesitation in providing a recommendation of your company. Thanks again for your attention to detail.
- M.A., August 2016
Thank you for being so thorough with our inspection. Crawling into and under places that others may have not gone. All of the photographs were a huge help as well. Not only did you point out things that weren't right but gave ideas on how to remedy the problems. Your quote was cheaper then others. Your experience and knowledge in the home inspection field became very evident early in our meeting. We have had other inspectors walk around and take looks from afar but you got right into everything and for this we thank you so much!!!!!

- T.M., Kingfisher BC, April 2016
Raul you are, without exception, the most thorough and personable home inspector I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Because I am relocating from another Province and couldn't personally attend the inspection, Raul ensured that I had all the information I needed to give me confidence I needed to proceed with the purchase and gave me ample opportunity to ask questions and communicated his findings in a very forthcoming and professional manner. I highly recommend Raul and Clarion Home Inspections for any of your home inspection needs. Client satisfaction seems to be his first priority.

I was seriously impressed with the thoroughness, and attention to detail, with which Raul conducted my home inspection a few years ago, so it was natural to call on him again before purchasing another home. I remain seriously impressed. Raul goes above and beyond the typical home inspection, providing a highly-detailed report, and also providing detailed verbal explanations and answering all questions in an easy-to-understand manner. He is exceptionally knowledgeable and he clearly cares about his clients. A huge "thank you", Raul for the peace of mind provided by your home inspections. C.D. Salmon Arm

The home owner education was equally as valuable as the detailed inspection. We would use him again and recommend to anyone we know.
- G.H., Salmon Arm BC, June 2014
This was the cheapest peace of mind anyone could ask for. We are buying a home that requires a great deal of fixing up, mostly just cosmetic, but we wanted to be sure. Raul gave us comfort in the knowledge that structurally the house was sound and that we would be burdened with unexpected costs. Thanks, Raul, great job.

He was absolutely amazing at my apartment on pv rd and once again he did a very through job at my parents place on patten drive. you can tell that raul really wants the best possible assessment of his cliets property and looks at all avenues possible to discover any problem areas. Thanks again raul
- B.D., April 2014
Just the report alone stands as an excellent example of your attention to details. would highly recommend you to anyone, should they ask, or if you would like us as a reference, we would be more than willing to express our appreciation to details of all areas of our home, both the one we are selling and to the one we are buying. job well done, thank you Raul. Steve and Debbie Roy. Armstrong,BC
- S.R., Armstrong BC, March 2014
I recently purchased a home in Revelstoke from a small town in Ontario. This would have been impossible without Raul's expertise. He not only gave me a VERY thorough report on the home and any possible deficiencies and required future upgrades but he also answered my questions that were outside the realm of your average home inspector. If you want an inspector that goes above and beyond the call of duty, Raul is your man!
- R.C., March 2014
Thank you Raul. It shows that you enjoy your work and I greatly appreciate how thorough and professional you are. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for the best inspection they could possibly get. Best regards.
- F.D., Revelstoke BC, March 2014
A great job done in a timely fashion. The extensive report was in great detail and offered recommendations where needed as well as a list of priorities for me to consider. Our Post- Survey conversation over the phone lasted 1.5 hours and was really helpful. As an out-of-town buyer, I found Clarion Home Inspection, and Raul Poole, fast, friendly and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend Clarion Home Inspections to other potential buyers in the North Okanagan. Lorne Hughes
- L.H., March 2014
very efficient and informative
- D.T., February 2014

Excelent work Raul, very thourough and better than what expected. Highly recommended. JK.

- R.W., August 2013
Your inspection was extra thorough and insightful and helped me greatly in my purchasing process. I would recommend your service to anyone who wants an honest complete inspection of a home. You are indeed the man Raul!

The service was excellent Raul went out of his way to do the inspection on the home we purchased as we were only in Salmon Arm for 2 days - He was very thorough and easy to talk to! We enjoyed his inspection very much and would definitely use him again if we every purchase and for sure will recommend him to anyone we know who needs a home inspection Thank you Rayl
- K.W., Cochrane AB, August 2013
Excellent service and report. Better than expected. Joseph and Pauline.
- J.K., August 2013
I am in Calgary, my home inspection was in Sorrento, Raul was very good about phoning me and letting me know when he was going to do it and called as soon as he had completed it. He was very through and explained to me what I should be looking at in the future. I would recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection. Well done Raul.
- G.S., August 2013
Raul Poole was a very professional Home Inspector. He readily gave good advice and was very specific in explaining the cause of any problem he encountered in our home and also gave the solution to fix it. We appreciated his very approachable attitude and offered advice about any problem about our home as long as we own it. We are very pleased with his work and would highly recommend him to anyone. We found his rate very reasonable also. Thank you Raul. H&D Cro July 2/13 Salmon Arm B.C
- H.C., July 2013
I've had three home inspections done and Raul's was by far the most thorough and valuable.
- B.K., May 2013
I'm fairly new at the procedures that take place, since it was my first home purchase. After walking thru the home inspection with Raul my nerves settled and I was able to actually enjoy the experience. Raul was very helpful in suggesting ways of tackling potential issues and some of the ones we encountered. I came away from the inspection feeling a lot more confident in moving forward on the deal. Cheers Raul, there is much appreciation.
- J.R., April 2013
Since we were from out of town, our home inspection was arranged by our realtor who recommended using Raul's company. I have never seen a more thorough and professional report, right down to letting us know we would need to adjust the float on the toilet! I still haven't met Raul, but have no hesitation in recommending his company to anyone looking for wonderful and friendly service. We couldn't be happier.
- J.W., April 2013
Raul is a very thorough, friendly, professional, and accommodating. I would highly recommend Raul to anyone needing a house inspected.
- K.Q., Calgary AB, March 2013
He was very helpful with the inspection and took the time to show us all the problems he house had big or small.
- T.A., March 2013
All round a great experience to deal with! Very pleased & impressed with the detailed inspection, the communication of the entire inspection to us as well as a very well documented report. Was a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable and thorough. Was most helpful in answering all our questions & even doing the walk through with our "entourage" of family that showed up... : S. Would go with Raul again for any other inspection needed and would definitely refer to anyone looking for quality service! Thanx again!!
