2 Day HG Training Next Month in Florida!

HG is offering Free Training on Friday and Saturday, October 28th and 29th, at the InterNACHI Florida show in Melbourne, FL. The show requires you to register ($149-$169), which gets you food, great speakers, and networking opportunities with other inspectors. InterNACHI welcomes all inspectors from any organization to their convention. HG decided to offer this 2 day training free, and wants to thank Nick Gromicko, Michelle, and John Shishilla for hosting the event! Register and bring your laptop with you.

I will cover beginning to advanced topics. This training will be lightly structured, informal, and breaks will vary depending on the events at the show. Send me an email if you plan to come and if you want to request any topics you want me to go over at the training. russell@HomeGauge.com

Vegas Show!

In less than 2 weeks we'll be in Vegas at what promises to be the best show on the strip!

Casey and O'Malley are known for making trade shows fun! Besides, you can double down while you are there and get your money back....like me...yea. Pssst. Sean is hoping to bring a couple of Android phones and a preview of HG (before beta) on the Android. Come to Vegas....and have some fun, you deserve it!


Warranty Progress

HomeGauge's all new 1 year home warranty is growing in popularity! This warranty protects the home inspector and agent more than any other home warranty on the market. We have some marketing materials for you to give to your home buyers and agents. You can print out your own (link below) and we are also making up some high quality info cards for you to give to your home buyers. Most of the sales we are getting are from home inspectors who point out the offer directly to their buyers at the inspection. Remember, the HomeGauge Extended Care Home Warranty is different because it guarantees the home inspection up to the terms and conditions of the policy. In other words, if the home inspector inspects a covered system and does not recommend repairs... if that item needs repair, we pay for the repair, period!

Download the warranty marketing page (pdf). You can print it out or email it directly to your customers. You can also attach the pdf to your report with a "Home Warranty Offer" link. Call us and we will show you how to auto attach it.
