Industry Heavyweights Combine Resources
Pillar To Post Home Inspectors®, EXIT Realty Corp. International Announce Partnership
March 20, 2019 // Franchising.com // TAMPA, Florida - Two industry stalwarts are combining their formidable resources in a new partnership that will benefit countless homebuyers and sellers across North America. Pillar To Post Home Inspectors, North America’s leading home inspection company, has been named the Premier Home Inspection Partner of EXIT Realty Corp. International, a full-service real estate franchisor with hundreds of offices and thousands of agents across the U.S. and Canada that is at the forefront of a new paradigm that has changed the landscape of the real estate industry.
The partnership will be formally announced at EXIT Southeast’s Spring Training event in Nashville in April. The program will initially be launched in the Southeast and later expand across North America.
“We’re honored to be in a partnership with such a highly respected company,” said Dan Steward, president and CEO of Pillar To Post. “We expect great synergy between our 800 home inspectors and the real estate agents of EXIT. Our franchisees are the people who have helped us rank Number One in the home inspection category on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise500® list for 19 years in a row. It’s a great fit.”
Pillar To Post, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, is North America’s largest home inspection company, with almost 600 locations and more than 800 certified home inspectors covering 49 states and nine Canadian provinces.
With corporate headquarters in both Tampa and Toronto, Pillar To Post has risen to the top of its industry for one simple reason: a focus on delivering the best customer experience for both homebuyers and real estate professionals. Delivering a world-class customer experience has always been firmly rooted in Pillar To Post’s business model of selecting top-quality candidates as franchise owners and providing first-rate home inspection and business operations training supported by ongoing education.
Likewise, EXIT Realty Corp. International was founded in Canada in 1996 by Chairman, Steve Morris, with a unique business model that took the concept of single-level residuals prevalent in both the insurance and music industries and applied it to the real estate industry. EXIT Realty expanded to the U.S. in 1999.
“EXIT is expanding rapidly, focused on providing solutions for its regional owners, franchise owners, agents in the field and the consumers who trust EXIT with their real estate transactions,” said Tami Bonnell, EXIT Realty Corp. International’s CEO. “Partnering with an industry leader such as Pillar To Post is one such way EXIT provides outstanding services to its associates and the general public alike.”
