Local Couple Brings Home Inspection Company To Denver Area

December 21, 2022 // Franchising.com // DENVER, CO - "One piece of advice I know we can give, to home buyers, sellers, and realtors,” said Ted Xavier and Yvette Lo, the new owners of Pillar To Post Home Inspectors, serving Centennial, Aurora, and Erie. “Don’t skip your home inspection, no matter what!”

As far as choosing home inspection as a new career, these are industry facts: The U.S. building inspector industry, measured by revenue, is estimated to have a market size of $4.9 billion in 2022, according to global research firm IBISWorld.

Launching operations in December, the Aurora couple - Ted is 42 and Yvette, 39 - have backgrounds that will mesh perfectly with their new endeavor. And not only that, franchise ownership will fulfill some important goals for each of them.

Having come from the corporate world, Ted is looking forward to everyday life as a small-business owner as opposed to being a cog in a corporation. “In my 15-year corporate career, all my knowledge and talent was used in making money for corporations instead of supporting our community. I’m looking forward to working with people in the community and truly helping them rather than just being part of corporate America,” Ted said.

Also, a U.S. Navy veteran, Ted spent seven years handling project management in civil infrastructure and most recently was a catastrophic adjuster with several major insurance carriers. He said his understanding of what insurance carriers look for during the home insurance purchasing and claims process goes hand-in-hand with the home inspection process. “My background will help maximize customers’ home-purchasing power and understanding,” he said. “I have an understanding of various home building techniques that enables me to offer different viewpoints than the average home inspector.”

Yvette’s family immigrated to the U.S. from Taiwan when she was in high school, with her parents making numerous sacrifices to afford her and her brother a good life. “Growing up, my father was an entrepreneur who started and owned several businesses throughout the years. He always encouraged me to think outside the box. Ted and I owning a business means the world to my parents, especially my father, and it's a realization of the ‘American dream’ for my family,” Yvette said.

Yvette is a former paralegal who also has management experience in the restaurant industry. In addition, she is trilingual and speaks English, Mandarin and Taiwanese, which will be useful when working with clients. “With many years of customer-service experience, I have a deep understanding of what customers are looking for when they choose to spend their hard-earned money,” she said.
