Veteran Chooses Pillar To Post Home Inspectors® as New Career

"One piece of advice I know I can give,” Trae Brown a Clarksville resident and the new owner of Pillar To Post Home Inspectors serving northern Tennessee and southern Kentucky said. “Don’t skip your home inspection, no matter what!”

As far as choosing home inspection as a new career, these are industry facts: The U.S. building inspector industry, measured by revenue, is estimated to have a market size of $4.9 billion in 2022, according to global research firm IBISWorld.

Brown is a United States Army veteran whose background is in supply and logistics. Brown has always dreamed of opening his own business. Veterans represent 14 percent of franchisees, and they prove a good fit for the franchise model because veterans possess strong leadership skills and a thorough understanding of being part of a team. Franchises also operate on proven systems and defined procedures and the military training that veterans go through allows them to easily adapt to a system and find success in franchising.

“The attention to detail I learned while serving in the Army will definitely help,” Brown said. “And I take a hands-on approach to leadership; always lead from the front. As a businessperson, I am relaxed and looking forward to providing great service first, then the money will come.”

Brown graduated in the top 10 percent of his class and earned the highest SAT score at his high school. Brown also received several awards while in the Army and holds a FAA Part 107 drone license.

“I compared Pillar To Post Home Inspectors to a lot of other franchises when researching business opportunities,” Brown said. “Their company values stood out, as well as their great use of technology.”

One of the many reasons Brown chose Pillar To Post Home Inspectors, is the innovative technologies the company recently introduced. These advanced technologies, along with the business model, provide an exceptional home inspection with unique and innovative features that are all delivered within a seamless brand experience. The new features further highlight Pillar To Post Home Inspectors’ standing as a visionary in its industry. The package is now known as the Ultimate Home Inspection and it’s revolutionizing the home inspection industry. So much so that the company was just awarded the much coveted Best Innovators title by Franchise Update Media in the category of “best customer service tools”.

Brown enjoys gaming, gardening, spending time with family and personal finance in his free time. Brown is also looking forward to becoming more involved in the community and possibly getting family members involved with Pillar To Post Home Inspectors.

“Something I’ve been lacking is a community. After leaving the military I would like to start volunteering at my local soup kitchen,” Brown said. “And I would love for my husband to work with me one day. Additionally, my mother and sister may help with small things from time to time.”
