A Note for Real Estate Professionals

As a professional in the business of real estate, whether a real estate agent or broker, a real estate attorney, mortgage lender, insurance provider or appraiser, 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 applies 
also 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.

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 and Alberta, where licensing of home inspectors is mandatory, the home inspection industry is unregulated. Anyone can print up business cards and pass him/herself off as a "professional" home inspector. That's why referring only qualified professional home inspectors who hold a PHPI/NHI designation 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/NHI inspector ready to provide you with qualified and competent home inspection services. 

The benefits of referring a National Home Inspector: The Gold Standard for inspectors

  • Clients will appreciate you referring an honest, reputable and qualified home inspector
  • It protects your clients' best interests, which reflects well on your professional image and integrity
  • It reduces the risk of buyer's remorse due to unexpected and costly surprises after your clients move in
  • It shows your clients that you genuinely care about their well being by recommending the best qualified and recognized level in Canada.
    Put a PHPI/NHI inspector at the top of your referral list today!

    Putting your clients in touch with nationally certified home inspection professionals reinforces your relationship with your clients. It enhances your professional image and lends more protection for you. The client will feel more confident with the condition of the property, and the quality of your advice. Choose a National Home Inspector and recommend him or her to inspect your client's next home; you are hiring a professional with proven ability, experience and impartiality.
