Dale, if any of those association logos are ASHI, removing them will increase your business. We’ve sent every REALTOR in the U.S. an email with a link to the diploma mill’s 35 second, online application, http://www.homeinspector.org/join/application/default.aspx showing that they are a diploma mill and offering to pay them to join for fun.
We send out 1,000 times more ASHI appliations than ASHI does.
And before anyone goes off with the “association-bashing” complaint… we have a duty to the public to expose diploma mills in our industry, so don’t go there. We offer no opinion in the email blasts, ASHI’s total lack of entrance requirements says it all.
Smart agents and consumers avoid inspectors who display known diploma mill logos.
