Pillar to Post Home Inspectors
What does your company do and how does it benefit REALTORS®?
As part of your community, Pillar To Post™ is pleased to provide our local customers real estate professionals, home buyers and home sellers with a home inspection service that brings to the buying or selling of a home unmatched quality, precision, integrity, and professionalism. We call what we do The Moment of Truth. It is the moment when the emotion of buying and selling a home meets the reality of the issues of that home. Our work is to communicate effectively, knowledgeably, efficiently, and openly about the condition of a home. We understand that our customers trust us to inform and educate them about what we see and what we find, and this is a trust we hold in the highest regard.
Why do you do what you do? Why should a REALTOR® hire you?
I have a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and worked in the industrial equipment manufacturing industry for Genie a Division of Terex Corporation for 20+ years in multiple technical leadership roles, most recent as Global Engineering Change Program Manager. I took a voluntary separation from a great company (both people and products) in 2019 to travel with family and focus on remodeling our home. I really enjoy all aspects of home ownership (almost all – the unplanned failure/expense I can do without). When exploring opportunities for my next chapter, leveraging my hobby interests and career experience was a key part of my focus. Home Inspection fit the bill for me, opportunity to be part of the home ownership process for others, continue to learn, variety of work content and locally based. The next question was start from scratch or partner with a proven leader, Pillar to Post is the largest home inspection company in North America, not that biggest is always best, but I liked the investment and application of technology and track record of continuous improvement, not being content with just being #1. I chose the team approach.
