Geoff has been inspecting houses for over two decades. With almost nine years experience as an insurance adjuster specializing in property insurance, Geoff’s responsibilities included investigating the cause of loss or damage on claims, organizing and managing general contractors, gathering quotes, reconciling quotes and generally overseeing the entire restoration process ensuring overall customer satisfaction. As an adjuster Geoff also did many inspections, reporting to the underwriting department about the condition and insurability of the properties.
After nine years as an adjuster Geoff went to the general contractor side of the insurance industry. There he worked for two companies over a 14 period as a Senior Project Manager. As a PM he looked after the whole job after the initial intake. From inspection of the loss or damage, coordinating any emergency repairs, quoting on permanent repairs, running the projects, managing field techs, or sub trades to the completion of the project and the Customer Satisfaction sign off. Through the years in the insurance and restoration industry Geoff has become proficient in writing detailed reports.
Away from work Geoff likes to keep busy. He and his wife Cheryl have two grown kids. He coached hockey in Ajax and Oakville for over ten years. Geoff and Cheryl like to get away in the summer visiting Ontario Provincial Parks with their two dogs. Contact Us!
