Jeff became of aware of Radon and its harmful effects while attending a home inspection conference in 2015 in the US. Upon further investigation, he became aware of the high levels of Radon gas in New Brunswick and decided to get involved in this new industry in an effort to reduce our local lung cancer rates.
Jeff received his Radon Measurement certification from the U.S. National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) in 2015. He was then re-certified under the Canadian guidelines (C-NRPP) as a Certified Measurement and a Certified Mitigator in 2016. Jeff, along with his business partners, Chris Franklin and Mike LeBlanc, founded Radon Repair Inc in the fall of 2016.
Jeff has been actively educating as many people as he can about Radon and its potential dangers to anyone who will listen. He has given info sessions to the local Real estate offices and is willing and available to answer all of your Radon related questions.
Jeff attended the National Radon Conference in Montreal, Quebec in 2016, where he took an Advanced Radon Mitigation course and is looking forward to this year’s conference in Ottawa where he will add more Radon education and network with Radon stakeholders from across Canada.
Radon Repair Inc. has mitigated several homes in the Greater Moncton area with 100% success rate. Radon Repair is excited to be a part of the Radon reduction movement in our area. If all affected homes in Canada were mitigated we could potentially reduce annual lung cancer deaths in Canada by over 3000!
“Putting the real in Realtor®…because people matter!”
Devon Babineau is an accomplished business woman with 25+ years in Marketing, Sales, Analytics and Negotiation with two major companies in Atlantic Canada. In her early 30’s, Devon became fascinated with home renovations and after countless hours of watching HGTV, she gained the courage to renovate her own home and started by enrolling in an Interior Design program through the Sheffield School of Interior Design in New York City. Devon also read many renovation “how-to” books and thus learned how to install hardwood flooring and tile, remove and repair walls, remodel kitchens and bathrooms along with how to install drain tile for exterior patios and landscaping projects.
At the end of her corporate career, Devon and her son purchased their first home to renovate and to resell (flip) and to ensure they understood the housing market, Devon obtained her Realtor’s® license. This venture quickly turned into a successful renovation company (The Reno Team Inc. which her son still operates today) and an award winning Real Estate career.
Devon is still flipping houses today (checkout www.facebook.com/renovate2sell for past and current projects) and is setting the pace in local real estate by creating a strong legacy of satisfied clients. Her client-centric approach combined with her extensive knowledge of marketing, local real estate trends, construction and renovation allows her to help those who purchase or sell their home maximize and realize profit.
