Just a quick note to let some of you who are wondering if the Nachi Websites work. They do!!!
I'm one of those horrible newbes that some people write about. I joined Nachi last Sept. and have done no advertising, other then letting a couple of friends know I was doing home inspections. To date I have done 113 inspections, 90 + have come from various websites or referrals from clients that first found out about me from a Nachi site. I had planned on only doing 50 inspections the first year since I wanted to gain experience and learn without the pressure of deadlines etc..
I work fulltime Monday thru Thursday and do inspections on Friday and Saturdays. I always let people know what my schedule is and so far nobody has objected.
I visit the Nachi site at least three times a week and use the test questions and the online exam to see where I need to study more. I have attended several chapter meetings, the closest one is 500 miles away until this fall when one is starting only 350 miles away. Having met Nick at these meetings I have only found him helpful and very knowledgable. I have emailed Nick many times with questions and always received thoughtful (sometimes humorous) answers.
Can Nachi improve? Yes!
Has Nachi improved? Constantly!
I personally don't care if the "N" stands for "Nick's". Nachi works and from what I see has taken home inspections as a profession farther into the future than ANY other association.
