"The encouragement we have received from the HouseMaster has meant so much to me," Edna Peterson said. "I'm thankful that Alan had the vision and I had the desire to do the tasks to master the method that we have been taught at HouseMaster since purchasing our franchise."

Attendees at this year's HouseMaster Conference enjoyed sessions focused on best practices in hiring, reporting, and social media marketing; as well as the launch of sophisticated online marketing tools designed to build on the company's 2016 dynamic content marketing platform.
