As Professional home inspectors in the Central and North Okanagan and East Shuswap since 1996 we are committed to assisting home buyers, home sellers, and real estate agents determine not only the true condition of a home, but how to maintain it. If a home is in excellent condition, that is exactly what we report. Those with any immediate problems or concerns will be listed in specific and helpful detail. Buyers and agents understand that an unbiased thorough inspection and the best service possible is important, and that is why we are highly trusted by buyers, sellers, and real Estate agents alike throughout the Okanagan/ Shuswap.

What Clients Say About Our Services
“I and my team of Kelowna Real Estate professionals are often asked by our clients to recommend a home inspection company. As Realtors we are discouraged from recommending any specific company. However, Pillar and Post is one name we always give our clients for Okanagan Real Estate inspections.
We are pleased to say that we can always count on a professional home inspection, with excellent reporting and explanation of the results, any time any of Pillar to Post’s inspectors is involved. Our clients have been, without exception, impressed with the quality of the inspection and professionalism of the individual home inspector whenever they have used Pillar to Post. It is nice to know we can always count on a job well done whenever Pillar to Post is involved. This helps us deliver the type of exceptional customer service we promise our clients.”

“To David Kilby who did three houses for us. Not sure if you will remember us David, Dennis and Terry, our last house you did was on Rutland road. You did wonderful work and when you said this house was in great shape in your overall report you were right. We are still enjoying every day that we wake up in it and hopefully will be here for a very long time. Anyway, thank you for your great work, your great sense of humour and being there when we needed you.”
