Franchisee Friday: Pillar to Post Home Inspection
“I am pleased to be able to redefine myself in a new and unexpected way and have an independent career with Pillar To Post in the highly sought after Los Angeles County,” said John Schroeder. “This area is my home, and I hope to help many families and real estate professionals make the right decisions during the process of buying and selling their homes.”
(Sherman Oaks, Calif.) John Schroeder, a retired 52-year-old Emmy Award winning broadcast professional switched careers and started his new life as a Pillar To Post Home Inspector®. For more than 24 years, Schroeder produced thousands of on-air and radio promos and launched the NFL on a major sports and programming network. When the network downsized and eliminated jobs, Schroeder was left without full time work. He researched many career and business ownership opportunities and chose Pillar To Post, a well-established brand and highly-rated franchise company where he could be his own boss.
Additionally, Schroeder has always had a very strong interest in architecture and design, so working in the real estate field was attractive to him, especially in Los Angeles County, his home base for nearly 29 years. Schroeder is now formally trained by Pillar To Post in all areas of home inspection including radon detection, mold detection and pesky termite detection.
“My previous experience required great dedication, focus, and attention to detail, plus familiarity with the local market,” said Schroeder. “These traits are key to my new career as a home inspector,” he said.
Last year, as in the last decade, Pillar to Post Home Inspectors was widely acknowledged and heralded for its strong growth – it added 78 new locations throughout North America in 2016 alone. It is ranked Number One on Entrepreneur Magazines Franchise500® in its category and is always near the top on franchisee satisfaction rankings.
