Ontario Home Inspector Goes Above And Beyond

WHITBY, ON – At 1:00 am on the night of August 26, Pedro Giorgana, our Whitby Ontario franchisee, received a distressing call from a frantic client. The client had discovered that the family cat was missing, and was convinced it was trapped somewhere within the walls of their home. Not knowing who else to phone for help, the client contacted Mr. Giorgana.

Without a moment’s hesitation, Pedro grabbed his infrared camera and headed over to the scene. Using thermal imaging, he was able to locate the cat within the walls of the home. Thermal imaging works by detecting the infrared radiation emitted by an object. This means that a warm object (like a wayward feline) will show up brightly against a cool background (like drywall and wood).

Once the missing cat was successfully located using the infrared camera, Pedro was able to determine where he could safely cut to rescue the trapped pet. After a stressful ordeal, the cat was retrieved and returned to its family without further incident. Pedro was even able to help the homeowners locate the opening that the cat had used to enter the walls, and plans were quickly made to patch up the hole as soon as possible.

We’d like to commend Mr. Giorgana for his quick thinking and willingness to help. It’s not every day that a home inspector gets called in for a midnight cat rescue!

A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections to Increase European Presence

Regional Director to Expand Home Inspection Offices into Poland, Slovenia and Croatia

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI) will soon be knocking on the doors of many more homeowners seeking its services throughout Europe.

The Pompano Beach-based franchisor, recognized as the world’s most professional home inspection company, announced today that it has signed an agreement to launch an aggressive European expansion strategy that will dramatically increase the company’s footprint beyond its current presence in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. 

Under the agreement, Tomas Simon, who now co-owns and operates the company’s regional office in Czech Republic and Slovakia under the brand name A Buyer’s Choice Home Experts, can market the franchise to other motivated, small business-oriented people in Poland, Slovenia and Croatia.

“Through market analysis and ongoing discussions with key players in the local real estate market, we’ve identified an incredible need for professionally certified home inspections in Eastern Europe,” said Bill Redfern, founder, president and CEO of ABCHI. “With Tomas on our team, I know he is going to lead the efforts to fill the void.”

The opportunity to help others succeed and support the local economy is what Simon welcomes the most about the investment he has made in expanding the brand throughout Eastern Europe. Prior to becoming the regional director, Simon enjoyed management roles and will bring his strong leadership skills to this new endeavor.

“When you buy a franchise, you want to feel good about the support and guidance you are going to receive. This is the point I feel strongest about, and it will be a focus of mine as I work with new franchisees in the region,” said Simon. “I am passionate about coaching others on how to get their business up and running, build sales and achieve success.”

Already, ABCHI is one of the world’s largest home inspection franchises with nearly 200 branches throughout Canada and the United States. Additionally, the company has grown into Chile and New Zealand. 

Redfern started the home inspection business in Canada in 2007, remarkably turning it into the largest home inspection franchise in that country after only two years of franchising. His track record of success stems from his remarkable attention to detail. Every ABCHI inspector is insured and certified above licensing standards, going beyond what the government requires of independent home inspectors.

NAHI - Contractor Hurt in Afghanistan Creates New Beginning

On a cloudy morning in October 2012, Adam Anderson of Satellite Beach found himself in a remote region of Afghani- stan as a private contractor on a classified mission.

Anderson had started his job with the defense contractor, which he declined to identify, just six weeks prior, and it still felt like an adventure.

Not lost on Anderson was that he was in a distant land, which was both exciting and dangerous, performing high-security work in a war zone for the company, which he declined to identify.
