How Pillar To Post Became the #1 Property Inspection Franchise in North America
For the majority of people, buying a home is the biggest purchase they make in their lifetime. The home buying process is exciting and stressful all at once, and buyers usually need help finding a home and ensuring it is the right house for them. A key part of the transaction is the home inspection, and most buyers turn to a property inspection franchise to get the house checked out before they buy.
To meet consumers’ needs, Pillar To Post has grown into the #1 home inspection franchise in North America. Not only do we have the most franchisees and serve the most territories, but we also provide superior service to our franchisees and customers alike. We strive to exceed the expectations of owners and home buyers, and we succeed every time.
The Largest Home Inspection Franchise
Pillar To Post has been inspecting homes for almost 25 years, and during that short time we have expanded to be the largest home inspection franchise in the United States and Canada. We have more than 550 franchise locations across 49 U.S. states and 9 Canadian provinces, and we can’t stop growing.
So, how did we get to be the #1 property inspection franchise in North America? By setting high standards and then meeting them time and time again.
High Standards for Franchisee Training
Our founder, Mike Brewer, started Pillar To Post after receiving what he considered an abysmal home inspection. The process left something to be desired, and after investigating the industry Brewer discovered that there was little in the form of industry-wide training and standards. After that experience, Brewer wanted to start his own home inspection business that would take quality and training seriously.
From the moment we started franchising—just one year after we were founded in 1993—we have taken training seriously. Not only do our franchise owners and inspectors get detailed technical training in performing property inspections, but they also learn our standards of practice as well as our proven business startup and operations program. Learning all of these things through in-class and on-site training sets our franchisees a step ahead in their businesses.
High Standards for Reports
Customer satisfaction is key to Pillar To Post’s success. Giving each and every customer an amazing home inspection experience is a critical part of our mission statement, and one of the ways we achieve that is through our industry leading reports.
At the end of the day, the report is the most important part of the property inspection, because it tells potential buyers what they need to know about a home before they sign on the dotted line. All Pillar To Post inspectors give their customers computerized reports right on site, so the customer does not need to wait for the results of the inspection. Even better, we include color photos with our reports for an extra layer of detail that customers appreciate.
