Listen to What Our Franchisees Are Saying

Wayne DeJong

Franchisee in Vancouver, BC


Pillar To Post® is proud of the franchise opportunity that we have created. When we opened back in 1994, the home inspection industry had little continuity; home buyers had no idea what they were going to get when they paid for a home inspection. But now, all that has changed, and Pillar To Post® has remained on the forefront of it all.

Our streamlined processes and invaluable resources have made it possible for us to give our franchisees every opportunity for success. Business-minded people who like structure and support are well-suited to owning a Pillar To Post® franchise because our opportunity gives flexibility and support simultaneously. As a Pillar To Post® owner, you can live the life that you want while building the career you have searched for.

But you don't have to listen to us. If you want to learn about what it's like working as a Pillar To Post® franchisee, listen to what our franchisees have to say.

Franchisee Testimonials

“PTP360 sets me apart from my competitors. While some of my competitors still use paper checklists, PTP360 provides a visual of the area of concern, where we can note our findings and solutions. Clients who choose our Premium and/or Prestige package love the measured floor plan, which eliminates the need to get another service provider, saving them time and money.”
Geoffrey Gonneau

“Thanks to the PTP360 tour, our services were well-received and sought-after by clients who needed a home inspection while maintaining social distancing. Many have chosen to upgrade their inspection package to include our virtual tour and measured floor plans. One client from out of state used the measured floor plans to get quotes on new floor coverings, while another client used them for furniture placement. PTP360 is one of the best features I have added to the options offered in the different array of home inspection packages.”
Larry Presby
Dallas, TX
“New technologies and partnerships with companies like DocuSketch and Centriq have helped us stay ahead of our competition by operating on the cutting edge of what’s available. Programs like Centriq and PTP360 have been instrumental in keeping our clients informed on the condition of their home well after the home inspection report is sent. They have something else that’s tangible that they can constantly refer back to. While Centriq keeps them updated on the status of their appliances, PTP360 offers a 360-degree photographic tour and representation of the home, allowing clients to share their new home with family and friends as well as contractors performing work at the home.”

“My late husband and I purchased the franchise in 2016 because it was a family-friendly business. We noticed that many of the franchises were run by husband and wife teams and we liked that. When I lost my husband to cancer in 2017, I decided to run the business solo. The support and guidance I received from the main office and my colleagues was sim[1]ply amazing. Pillar To Post provides you access to a host of professionals and resources to really grow your business. My Regional Director is always available to assist in addition to monthly scheduled calls to see how I am doing. Pillar To Post is always on the cutting edge of technology and marketing, which really sets us apart from other inspection companies.”
Jacqueline Gathers
Brooklyn, NY
“Many people consider home inspection a commodity. Here, at Pillar To Post, we are different as a tool such as PTP360 helps us to set us apart from the competition. The team offers PTP360 as a standard on all inspections and we saw this as an advantage with clients. During covid, we offered PTP360 to the clients and they really liked that they could see the rooms of the house without being there for the inspection, especially military clients who were abroad and could not make it for the inspection, they used PTP360 to view the house and all of its features. When some want the measured FloorPlan, they get PTP360 Tour and FloorPlan together, its great!”
