OAKLEY, CA - HouseMaster, the first and most experienced home inspection franchise in North America, announces the opening of a new location in the East Bay region owned by Cliff Olson.

Olson brings more than 25 years of experience in management and sales. He takes pride in outstanding customer service and loves to educate customers on the systems in homes. He has owned several businesses over the years, and most recently has been a successful real estate agent in the local market.

“As a real estate agent, I’ve noticed a deep hole in our market – our local area lacked an inspection company focused on the needs of the buyer,” Olson said. “My background and experience is very unique for the home inspection industry. I come at it from a real estate transaction viewpoint - I uniquely understand buyers, agents, and the transaction process. Because I am very well established in the local real estate community, I have developed a trust and positive reputation that carries into my inspection business.”

As a veteran of the real estate community, Olson did his due diligence in researching and selecting the right franchise fit.

“Researching the industry, I wanted to partner with the absolute best,” Olson said. “HouseMaster stood way above any other franchise opportunity. Not only are they the oldest and biggest – but everyone associated with the franchise cares deeply about what they do, and desire to help make others successful.”

Olson resides in Oakley and services area from Discovery Bay in the east to Walnut Creek in the west. Service areas include: Brentwood, Oakley, Antioch, Discovery Bay, Bethel Island, Pittsburg, Bay Point, Concord, Clayton, Martinez, Pleasant Hill, and Walnut Creek. His wife and younger daughter are contributing to the business in operational roles and he has already brought on several inspectors to service the area, with more hirings in store as the business expands.

HouseMaster provides homebuyers and sellers an independent, third-party, professional evaluation of the visible and accessible condition of the major elements of a home. HouseMaster’s guaranteed inspections enable potential homebuyers and sellers the opportunity to make educated real estate decisions. From interior systems such as plumbing and electrical to exterior components like the roof and siding, HouseMaster Home Inspection includes the evaluation of the visible and accessible major elements of the home.

HouseMaster is known for its strong commitment to customer service. With more than 315 franchise areas across North America, HouseMaster holds a Net Promoter Score of 92 (a customer satisfaction ranking higher than Apple and Ritz-Carlton). Franchise Business Review has named HouseMaster a top franchise brand in its franchise owner satisfaction category since 2009.

“We’re thrilled that Cliff joined our franchise family and are excited for what’s in store as he builds his business,” said HouseMaster President and CEO Kathleen Kuhn. “He is a prime example of what we look for in franchise owners: He is dedicated to quality, he is knowledgeable, and someone who excels at building relationships with people.”
