New to InterNACHI

Greetings everyone, I have been contemplating joining for a few weeks now, been super busy with my other business, but nevertheless, here I am.
Looking forward to a long and prosperous journey.

This guy also helped me make my decision: James Candelaria. Very pushy guy, I doubt he works for InterNACHI, calling me and 'interviewing" me for a few days now. He said he offered free InterNACHI membership.
When I started asking questions, how his program works- joining him vs joining directly with InterNACHI, etc- he got irritated and said he wasn’t in the business of convincing people, and ultimately hung up on me.

I’ve attached part of the correspondence between us:

Home Inspectors of America

Seems that this individual is NOT AT ALL new at this, SCAMMING PEOPLE (Correct me if I am wrong bit I seriously doubt it!) !

Take a look at Home Inspectors of America from a few years ago!!


Dont join internachi yet!!!

Will you be purchasing inspection software? Research the type of software you will want to use. I use homegauge (lots of us do).

I’m saying all this cause homegauge has a deal where they will buy you an internachi subscription for an entire year! But only if you sign up with them 1st.

i dont work for homegauge, just letting you know something i wish i was told.

…or take it from a experienced guy that HIP is the most popular for a reason. See my signature below . Home Gauge has been sold .

Plus he can get a Free Trial Bob, for free to try out.
