Wow! I love to watch the posts on here, and then watch the posters back pedal when the vendor comes back with some lucrative information that makes the poster look like what Mike called the realtors.
Our industry is the most cut-throat bunch of people in any industry I know of. And, we have the gull to come on here and bash the vendors like they are the enemy. I’m amazed.
If you compare the websites and designs, information, quality, and marketing effect of the companies listed above, you’ll notice that the deal Catherine posted would be a beneficial investment, comparitively speaking.
Also, Mike owns and operates a successful inspection business, training facility (top-notch, I might add), and still makes the time to come here to post with us…think about it. How many people who acheive the level of success that Mr. Rowan has take the time to even acknowledge our presence, and we want to find the bad in that.
It’s this simple: If you want to buy what someone is selling, have at it. If you don’t, that’s fine to. But GROW UP!!! Don’t come here to bash just because you can’t see the importance of the vendors, especially good vendors. For the most part, they’ll be here when we’re gone.
I’m quite certain if you email Catherine or Mike, or call the toll-free number on one of their many websites, they’d gladly remove a name from their mailing list, not to mention educate you about the difference between the $.99 products to the reasonably priced ones. Just remember what you’re saying about price the next time you recieve a phone call from a buyer or seller wanting an inspection, and they start with “how much…” And then come back with, “well your competitor is ONLY…”
