National Property Inspections, Inc., is pleased to announce that NPI franchise owner Bob McDonough of Atlanta is the winner of the NPI/GPI 2015 Franchise of the Year Award.
“Having started my inspection business with NPI in 2008, at the beginning of the real estate disaster, I am extremely proud of the accomplishments of my team and myself,” McDonough said. “It has been a lot of hard, but very enjoyable, work to build this business from the ground up in such a short period of time. I am especially gratified to have such a large group of highly respected Realtors referring my company to their clients. There is no better feeling in business than getting repeat referrals from people I respect. To be awarded Franchise of the Year in front of over 100 of my peers is icing on the cake!”
McDonough operates a multi-inspector company with office staff and also performs inspections himself. In addition to performing home inspections and commercial property inspections, McDonough has differentiated his business by providing mold inspections, radon testing, Phase I Environmental Assessments and winterization services to clients in the Atlanta area.
In addition to overall annual sales, number of inspection performed and percentage of sales growth over the previous year, the NPI/GPI Franchise of the Year award is based on several contributing factors:
- Overall level of professionalism
- Continuously striving to improve customer service and benefit customers by seeking additional training and increasing the knowledge base
- Acting as a role model and mentor to other NPI and GPI franchise owners
- Demonstrated willingness and desire to give back to the community
- Positive feedback from customers
“The competition was tough,” said Roland Bates, president of NPI/GPI. “Most of our franchisees had a great year. Bob McDonough has been ambitious since he began his franchise in 2008. He was intent on building a larger business rather than a one-man show. He has worked tremendously hard to expand his territory and build a multi-inspector company, and he and his team have performed thousands of inspections this year. Bob and his inspectors always receive rave reviews from their clients. Bob has truly taken his franchise to a whole new level, and we are so extremely proud to have him as one of our franchise owners.”
