Students then moved into the owning and operating your own business training and software training portions run by Sarah Turner the New Zealand Operations Manager.
Our new trainees have attended or are in the process of attending live inspections with currently trained and operating inspectors to master the hands-on process of home inspecting. They gain hours of practical real life experience they will apply in the operation of their business.
Bill Redfern completes Bone Island Triathlon in 16th place out of 600
A Buyer's Choice Home Inspection CEO and founder Bill Redfern continues to bring our system an Ironman's attention to detail and dedication. Our franchise is actively growing and advancing already in the beginnings of 2014, and our home inspectors are achieving milestones.
You might say that Bill is helping us "outpace" the others. In fact, he recently finished an incredible 16th out of 600 participants in the Jan. 25 Key West Bone Island Triathlon. Bravo, Bill!
He bested his previous half Ironman time, completing the Key West endurance event -- a 1.2-mile (1.9 km) swim, a 56-mile (90 km) bike ride and a 13.1-mile (21.1 km) run -- in 5 hours and 9 minutes. Bill finished second overall in his age group.
A Buyer's Choice Home Inspections held it's Annual Kick-off Regional Meetings at the Home Office in Pompano Beach, Florida on February 6 & 7.
It was a very productive workshop session that provided clarity and momentum for all in attendance. Formal execution plans were made for many exciting and industry exclusive ABCHI programs for our franchisees in 2014. All Canadian Regional Owners were in attendance as well as remote participation from Regional Owners in Chile, Czech Republic and New Zealand.

HARP (Home Affordable Refinance Program) started in 2009 as a government-sponsored program for homeowners to refinance from their high-interest rates, underwater mortgages and declining home values. HARP 2 came around two years later to help an even broader spectrum of homeowners in trouble.
But homeowners such as Marcus John of New Jersey are hoping that HARP 3.0 comes around soon to help millions more that couldn’t qualify for the first two programs. But no one knows exactly when that program, if ever, will come about. Some experts are predicting when something new might be available, and others are skeptical that it will happen soon.
