SUMTER, S.C.--(Dec. 1, 2017) – HouseMaster franchise owners, Joe Boyle and Kevin Watford, received the Home Inspection Excellence Award at the company's annual conference held October 18-21 in Itasca, Illinois. The Home Inspection Excellence Award Award is given to honor those owners who reach the milestone of being in business for 25 years.

"First, I would like to thank all of the realtors that had the confidence to consistently recommend HouseMaster in our area for 25 years. I would also like to thank my partner Kevin Watford for helping our company grow and achieve the Presidents Club level once again!" Joe Boyle said, "I realize (after 25 years) as more things have changed,  that many things have stayed the same. 25 years ago, we were writing reports on the new HouseMaster Express reports. These reports were new, innovative, and industry leading - I felt like I was part of a family. Now 25 years later, we have the HouseMaster Cloud. It is new, innovative, industry leading and I still feel like I am part of a family.  Of course, there have been many other improvements, innovations and industry leading concepts in the past 25 years, but there is one thing that always has stayed the same -  we are a part of the HouseMaster family. Thank you Kathleen and the HouseMaster family."

HouseMaster President, Kathleen Kuhn, and corporate members hosted the conference and event honoring the successes of franchise owners from the past year and celebrated their lasting impact on the home inspection industry and the consumers they serve.  

"To celebrate a milestone of 25 years is quite an achievement," Kuhn said. “Joe and Kevin are dedicated business owners and committed to serving their customers at a high-level. We are proud to have them as part of our HouseMaster family and celebrate this milestone with them.”

Conference attendees enjoyed sessions focused on new programs and initiatives designed to help customers, including the company’s new home management system, HouseMaster Cloud, which offers customers an easy way to manage and maintain their homes with the help of online document management, maintenance reminders, recall alerts, and more.

"This year we are elevating the performance of our owners and raising the bar in the home inspection industry with HouseMaster Cloud," Kuhn said. "HouseMaster franchise owners will be better equipped to help agents build and keep relationships and homeowners organize, protect, and improve their home. This will make HouseMaster the leader in the home inspection industry."
