“One thing I know for sure,” says Joe Yaskoweak, a new franchise owner with Pillar To Post Home Inspectors, the No. 1 home inspection company in North America. “Don’t skip your home inspection during this seller’s market.” The 43-year-old Kiowa resident launched operations in July, serving homebuyers, sellers and agents throughout Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, Elbert and Jefferson counties, and Weld County, south of County Rd. 38. Yaskoweak spent two decades in retail management in the home improvement and furniture sectors but decided the time had come to focus on his own priorities, namely his family.
Said Yaskoweak, “My wife, Danielle, a Realtor with Colorado Home Realty, was my inspiration for becoming a home inspection franchise owner. My Home Improvement Management background will assist me as well, because I have a good working knowledge of the products used in homes and the products used in construction of homes. Work/life balance became a large focus for me since my daughter 15, and my son 13, seem to be growing up so fast.”
Yaskoweak couldn’t have chosen a better time to join Pillar To Post Home Inspectors, according to President and CEO Dan Steward, “We rolled out new technologies during COVID-19 like our PTP360 tour. It was instrumental in keeping our business thriving during the pandemic. Now we are focused on making sure some of our cutting-edge technologies are also used for those thinking of skipping home inspections, a very risky move,” Steward said.
PTP360 is an interactive 360° virtual home inspection tour that allows users to revisit a home anytime and anywhere from a smartphone, tablet or desktop and even share the tour with family and friends. Clients can also receive a measured floor plan of the entire home, with measurements to help with furniture fit and placement. “In the long term, PTP360 is a huge help for busy, professional Realtors, saving them time and better serving their seller, while also giving prospective buyers a far better experience,” Steward said.
Pillar To Post Home Inspectors has achieved the highest standing in various rankings of “Best in Category,” “Top 20 Franchises to Buy,” “Top 10 Global Franchises” and “Top Franchises for Veterans,” in addition to achieving 5-Star status with VetFran, a program offered by the International Franchise Association that provides discounted franchise fees to veterans. A professional evaluation both inside and outside the home is at the core of Pillar To Post Home Inspectors’ service. Pillar To Post Home Inspectors input data and digital photos into a computerized report. All information is provided to clients in a customized binder for easy reference, allowing homebuyers or sellers to make confident, informed decisions.
“I always wanted to be in business for myself eventually. When it was time, I researched several franchises before choosing Pillar To Post Home Inspectors. They were very professional, prompt and answered all my questions,” Yaskoweak said. “Their reputation of excellence and integrity aligned well with my beliefs and values. My experience in home improvement, management and sales are transferable skills that I will apply in my daily operations to be successful.”
