Buying or selling a house is an exercise that can be fraught with anxiety. Sometimes you need a calming influence, or more importantly, a voice of reason when it comes to making what is one of life's big decisions.
In that situation, you want to turn to someone like Jack Zaczek, 48, who owns a Pillar To Post Home Inspectors® franchise, the brand to which more than three million families have turned to for 25 years to be their trusted advisor when buying or selling a home.
Zaczek is a retired veteran who spent more than 20 years in the Navy. Attention to detail and a sense of calm in times of stress are hallmarks of any veteran, and Zaczek certainly has the credentials. He retired as Navy Chief and was an Airframe and Flight Control Technician, certifying H60 Sea Hawk Helicopters safe for flight during eight "yes, eight" deployments to the Persian Gulf in direct support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom campaigns.
"The attention to detail the Navy taught me inspecting aircraft directly contributes to the high level of attention I give each home inspection I perform," said Zaczek who serves homebuyers and sellers throughout Duval, Flagler, St. Johns, Putnam and Nassau counties in Florida.
While Zaczek has the requisite mindset required to be a successful home inspector, he also has the knowledge. Before joining the Navy in 1997, he worked in construction building custom homes in Oregon. "Pillar To Post is the perfect fit for me. I love the profession and take great pride in my own home," Zaczek said. "Being a home inspector gives me the opportunity to help out and be involved with my community."
Pillar to Post Home Inspectors is a popular franchise brand among veterans like Zaczek. The franchisor is a member of VetFran, a program of the International Franchise Association that helps vets purchase franchises and it has achieved 5-star status in that program, the top ranking possible. In 2018, one-third of new Pillar To Post Home inspectors franchisees were military vets. "Pillar To Post Home Inspectors has been ranked as the No. 1 home inspection franchise, and I'm proud to be a part of this winning team," Zaczek said.
