We have been responsible for several hundred Continuing Education Courses for local real estate agents, and these training sessions help agents understand home related subjects. Local Realtors frequently ask us to participate in training sessions and conduct these classes – proving that they trust our knowledge in the home business.
Optional Services In Addition To Home Inspections
In addition to the best home inspection possible we also offer added services to our customers. These can be done at the same time as a home inspection, or they can be arranged individually. Services that we offer include:

A thorough home inspection will usually require between two and four hours, and then the inspector will print out the inspection report and color photographs on site. Clients are welcome to attend and participate in the home inspection process, and our inspectors will take all of the time needed to answer any questions and address any concerns.
What Our Customers & Realtors Tell Us
“Very thorough, friendly and informative when explaining the outcome of our home inspection.”
— David & Victoria R., Clients
“The team at Pillar to Post has done over 40 professional home inspections for me and my clients over the past 4 years. They are always very professional, thorough and are not alarming to my buyers. They just did an inspection for me this week and found an extensive list of repairs that the seller’s “other” pre-sale inspector missed. My buyer’s were going to pass on investing in an inspection because the seller had done a pre-listing inspection several months ago. My clients were very thankful I insisted on investing in their own “Pillar to Post” inspection, when they realized how many items the seller’s inspector had overlooked. I recommend Pillar to Post to all my clients and will continue to. This business is challenging and the team at Pillar to Post always provide great service to my buyers, leaving me with one less thing to worry about.”
— Randy Bylsma – Principal Broker, Coldwell Banker
“Very professional organization; very thorough and expedient with the inspection; report prepared at end of inspection”
— Brian & Marni C., Clients

“You are quick to respond, do very thorough inspections and give great client care! Thanks Chris and Pete!!”
— Nora Cochran, Zip Realty
“Pete did an outstanding job! As new homeowners we were nervous about the inspection as well as understanding the systems in our home. He did a tremendous job explaining making things easy to understand and give us the confidence we needed to move forward. I would recommend P2P and Peter to anyone who asks.”
— Matt & Renee O., Clients
“Always do the best inspections. Inspectors are very detailed in their reports and always very friendly. I also think that the on the spot printing of the report is also above what I have seen anybody else do. Very professional.”
— Heather Wright, Coldwell Banker
“Chris lived up to his reputation as being professional and thorough with his inspection. Due to some of the findings from the inspection, my wife and I decided that we should not purchase the home. We found it extremely important to pay for an inspection up front versus having to deal with several issues for years to come.”
— Stefan & Brigitte S., Clients
“The friendly, knowledgeable, honest inspectors. We like the idea that the customer can ask the inspector questions about the items that need added attention and they willingly discuss the issues with them. We also appreciate the inspection being printed ‘on the spot’; the customer doesn’t have to wait 3 days to get the report in their hands. We have used Pillar to Post for about 14 years.”

“Professional and Friendly inspectors, with good knowledge
The instant report in a 3 ring binder with color pics of issues. Then later the same day, I get a copy of the summary sent to me. Makes creating a repair addendum very easy and understandable of issues, I don’t have knowledge about. I have help now on my “wording” of what repair needs to be done, I just refer to page 3 and which item needs to be done.”
— Donna Schroder, Oregon Realty

I will always recommend Pillar to post.”
