As a professional in the business of real estate, be it a real estate agent or broker, real estate attorney, mortgage lender, insurance provider, appraiser or whomever, you understand that building harmonious business relationships with clients involves in part giving solid, reliable advice.
Providing outstanding advice pays off with less fee resistance, more repeat business, more referrals to new clients, and an overall feeling of satisfaction for both you and your clients. This also applies to referring professionals in other fields. Your clients are looking to you as an experienced and trusted advisor who will recommend only those who offer the best service or product.
So when it comes to referring home inspectors, it makes good business sense to seek out and recommend qualified professionals. With the exception of British Columbia who now require mandatory licensing our industry is for the most part unregulated, this can be more difficult than it sounds. After all, anyone can print up some business cards and pass him/herself off as a "professional" home inspector. That's why referring only qualified professional home inspectors who are PHPI/National Certificate Holder™ is a prudent choice. Your clients deserve nothing less.
Regardless of where you do business in Canada, from British Columbia to Newfoundland, there is a PHPI/National Certificate Holder™ ready to provide you with qualified and competent home inspection services.
