Hello to all,
Background: 15 years of residential and commercial insurance sales coupled with 9 years of construction prior to that.
A new partnership in the insurance office didn’t work out well and I left the industry after 15 years and thousands of property inspections for both commercial and residential properties. Although not as detailed as the average Home Inspector completes.
Career change: With a decision to make a career change and the purchasing of some rental property, I watched as a Home Inspector plied his trade. It wasn’t long after, materials from AHIT and Kaplan-ITA were on their way. I did look into attending a Home Inspection school/seminar but decided to go with the Home Study route.
A few days ago I completed my first Home Inspection and slugged my way through the Home Gauge software without looking into the Help options or the online manual.
Yesterday I deposited my first check.
Being a “New Guy” is nothing new to me personally. I’ve worked on commissions for 15 years and in my mind woke up unemployed every morning. As I become better at Home Inspections and earn more, I fully intend on becoming a paid member here and downloading informative videos as I grow.
For now, the consensus between the wife and I are to invest the earnings back into the business as we go, increase the advertising and marketing efforts and allow the business to build upon itself.
I thank you for your time and patience and hopefully I might be able to answer insurance questions for you, as I might have industry specific questions to ask of you!
Again, I find this site to be highly beneficial and look forward to becoming a bigger part of it in the future.
Respectfully for my first post,
