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 Errors and Omissions Insurance, Liability Insurance and Water Ingress Insurance. We recommend that no one ever use an unlicensed or uninsured inspector.
There are still many home inspectors operating in BC without a license or insurance at all. A Buyer’s Choice Kelowna is licensed and insured.
Licensed Home Inspector
Shane McLean is A Buyer's Choice Home Inspections franchisee in the greater Kelowna area. He also covers the Lake Country, Oyama & Winfield, as well as the Big White Ski Community.
Shane is a Nationally Certified Home Inspector and remains an associate member in good standing with the Canadian National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (CANachi). He received his certification after extensive study from the Carson Dunlop Training Institute; the most comprehensive home inspector training system in North America. He is currently licensed under the British Columbia Business Practices and Consumer Protection Branch; BC License #67604.
Shane, who is originally from Vancouver and raised in Port Coquitlam is a new resident of the Okanagan Valley. He has had a 20 year career in the construction industry as a Red-Seal, ticketed plumber, and licensed gas-fitter. The last 10 years he has worked as foreman for one of the largest mechanical contractors in B.C.
Shane’s background and work as a residential plumber and the mechanical foreman on various large commercial/ institutional projects helps him understand many facets of construction and it is now a big asset to the Kelowna area real estate community in his A Buyers Choice Home Inspection business. Some of the projects Shane has managed in the lower mainland of BC include the Olympic Curling Rink, UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and various projects at Vancouver General Hospital and B.C. Children’s and Women’s Hospital.
Shane and his wife Charlene wanted to find a way to raise their two children in the Okanagan. He wanted to be able to spend more time with the family, instead of fighting traffic in the big city. A Buyer's Choice Home Inspections - Kelowna has given them this opportunity. His ideal vacation involves family, sports, friends and great food. It’s no wonder he and Charlene fell in love with Kelowna and its surroundings.
Shane’s career goal is to operate the most successful home inspection business in the Okanagan Valley along with his A Buyer’s Choice teammates in Penticton and Vernon. So, becoming part of “A Buyer’s Choice” team seemed like a natural fit. Having the background and knowledge in the construction industry allows him to assist local realtors, comfort their clients and protect their investments.
Shane and his team look forward to the opportunity to serve Kelowna, Winfield, Lake Country, Oyama, and the Big White Ski Community in all of their residential and commercial inspection needs.
