Sharondale Academy defends against fraud allegations!
I’m not sure how this is going to go, but I can no longer sit quietly
by, and watch the culmination of nearly forty years of faithful service to
the Canadian public, go down the drain. My personal reputation, and the
hard earned reputation of both my inspection business, and my inspection
training facility has been slandered in a highly visible media.
My name is Harold J. Lowe C.M.I…I own and operate both " Eagle-
Eye Healthy Home Inspections ", and " Sharondale Academy of Arts and
Trades " in the Toronto, Ontario, area, and in the region of Durham. I’m
very proud of my success in both inspecting, and in training! I operate
both businesses with the utmost of integrity.
No student leaves my establishment half trained, with dreams of
quickly becoming a millionaire! Quite the opposite is true. There is
absolutely nothing on my website that could be construed as being
" False advertising " , if taken " in context ". Every word is 100% true
in my opinion, and from my personal experience.
I teach " due dilagence " to my students. They are told over and
over, and over again that unless they take everything they’ve learned
and aggressively apply it , undaunted by slow, or no forward progression,
for weeks, or months; they will never succeed.
On the other hand; if they apply all they’ve learned, and actively,
and aggressively market themselves, and never, never, never, never
give up; they will succeed…Period.
Luck plays a big role in how quickly you move forward in any
business. Making the right connections, getting on the preferred lists,
being able to do lots of presentations, and lots and lots and lots of
good old-fashioned hard work, and door knockin’, go a long way to
bringing financial success to your home inspection business, as well.
As far as Mr. Horton goes; I will not comment at this time, due
to the possibilities of legal action for libel and slander. Enough to say
I have a long list of very happy former students; some of which are
way past the so-called three year lifespan of the average inspector.
Here are two emails from current students, who are very upset
about all the unfounded attacks on my integrity, and my ability to
teach the students in a meaningful way…

Re: Harold Lowe ( Sharondale Academy )
To whom it may concern,
Mr. Lowe has been my teacher for the past six weeks.I can
truthfully say that Mr. Lowe is a wonderful teacher,with great
integrity, and extremely dedicated to his job.
He has a light humour that allows you to feel comfortable, in a
safe, and unbiased environment.To others, he is an educator,
but to me, he is a peer who motivates you to succeed.
Therefore, I can say, he is a great teacher!
Yours Truly, Pam Griffith

I am writing this note just to let you know that during my time
spent with you, in this course, not only am I learning how to
become a great home inspector, but also how to be respectful to
any client that might not be so nice. Harold; you are one of the
best teachers I have ever had the priviledge to be taught by, and
I hope to have the priviledge of even working with you in the future.
I will definitely recommend your course to anyone, and
everyone who asks.
Yours truly, Paul Dewling
I think those references speak more than I could ever say in my
I am truely sorry Mr. Horton was dissatisfied with the training he
received. He is more than welcome to repeat the course, in the new
format, and with the new curriculum, as long as he is willing to sign
some sort of promise against conspiring to bring dissension into the
class he attends. I will not go through that, ever again!
I have to say how very disappointed I am with those of you who
judged me and my school, without ever asking my side of the story.
I refuse to engage in the childish, and judgemental accusations that
have been lavished on me. I’m above that!
Hopefully, I will not lose too much business over this, but whatever
the case, I will continue to do my very best to raise the standards in
this industry, and help produce the finest inspectors, the industry has
I look forward to meeting some of you, out there, when Nick
comes to my birthday party, on August 14th, 2008. I think he
mentioned something about possibly doing a seminar, while he was
here in Toronto.
This is all I will say on the matter. I will not be drawn into any
mud slinging contests by any of the mouthpieces out there.
By the way; I’m a C.M.I. because I darn well earned it!
Harold J. Lowe C.M.I…
… and proud of it.
