PAUL DOLYNNY

OWNER/INSPECTOR

<p>After a long and prosperous career in education, I decided it was time for a change. I had previous experience and interest in construction, so inspecting homes felt like a natural transition for me. I took the required courses and started my own small business. In 2012 I acquired HouseMaster, and merged with House Guard Home Inspections. This merger, along with hard work and my understanding of the real estate market, has helped to make HouseMaster one of the top choices for homebuyers and real estate professionals in Edmonton and surrounding area.</p>
