ASHI is also a large political association, donating money to any state RE association, lobbyist, politician, all to promote state HI licensing, and any other RE interest. ASHI buddy-ups with most RE offices, to promote their so-called agendas. This is why RE office brokers push their agents to suggest ASHI inspectors to clients, so as the ASHI HI has more money to donate to ASHI causes, which benefit the RE’s.
However, with ASHI members dwindling in droves, some RE offices are starting to wake up. I recently was invited, yes, to that KW office where they never let me in for any reason for years. This is a large 200 agent office in a high traffic location in KC. Seems that they are thinking the other way, finally.
