In 2006, our founder, Duane Morrison, was looking to buy a franchise in the property inspection industry. At which time, many homeowners were going into foreclosure and the real estate market was softening. He knew success would depend on marketing through networking and providing excellent service at a competitive price. To his disappointment the franchise opportunities did not offer sufficient training programs to build a successful multi-inspector company.
Their focus was not on relationships, unparalleled professionalism, technology, and business management. As a result, he was determined to make these missing principles the driving force behind Morrison Plus Property inspections.
In January 2007, he took out a small business loan and started the company from his home. Later in August, the real estate bubble burst and there was a run on his bank. It was a tough time to start a new inspection business, especially when sales depended on people buying houses in a struggling real estate market.
Fortunately, he decided to diversify sales by acquiring national accounts. As a result, in the worst real estate market downturn ever recorded, he sold approximately $60,000 worth of inspections and the first year was a huge success!
During the following years it took the real estate market to recover, Duane hired and trained new inspectors and invested profits into marketing. Year after year, sales increased and Morrison Plus Properties Inspections has become a well-known branded multi-inspector firm.
It has been 10 years in the making and our proven system has made Morrison Plus Property Inspections America’s Premier Property Inspection Company! We are excited to now share this proven system with other ambitious individuals who desire ownership of a proven brand.
