WIN’s 30 Years of Legacy

2023 marks 30 years of legacy for WIN. Our legacy is built by our 2 million+ satisfied clients, 200,000+ Realtor relationships, and 270+ franchise owners (better known as our Strategic Partners or SPs). WIN is committed to fostering and nurturing these long-lasting relationships to help improve the health, safety, and well-being of our communities.

WIN Home Inspection began with a passion and a mission to improve the traditional home inspection experience. By the early 2000s, WIN had expanded to nearly 75 SPs and 6 internal team members. While we came from humble beginnings, WIN was always a front-runner, becoming the first inspection company to computerize report writing and one of the first companies to adopt tablet-based computing as early as 2000. Since then, WIN has rapidly expanded to become a nationwide brand and is driven by a team of 45+ support staff worldwide.

While we continue to grow, we continue to invest in technology, people and infrastructure. WIN is built around core values of commitment, innovation, integrity, and investment, which led us to deliver actionable insights and exceptional customer service to clients and real estate professionals.

How WIN Became a Trusted and Established Brand

WIN has helped entrepreneurs thrive while building a rewarding business of their own in the recession-resistant home inspection industry. We differentiate ourselves from other franchises in the market by offering the largest support team, the lowest start-up cost, and all training, marketing and coaching in-house to our franchise owners.

Every home inspector at WIN is certified, insured, consultative and professional. We are sincere in our approach and offer support and guidance for all our services. WIN is committed to helping SPs stay ahead of the curve by ensuring our SPs can educate clients about the condition of their home and help them make informed decisions regarding their most valuable investment.

We offer industry-leading training, marketing, and mentorship to our Strategic Partners to help guide them on their path to success. Our focus is to help them drive business growth and enhance customer experience.


WIN offers one of the best ongoing training programs in the home inspection industry with year-round training for 35+ essential inspection services. We provide an intensive bootcamp training program, including a pre-bootcamp, which is a two-week immersive experience to learn the technical aspects of home inspection and other critical services, three weeks of classroom and field training, and a post-bootcamp to get technology, systems, marketing, and databases ready for business launch.

WIN also offers support and training throughout every stage of business ownership and is always there to guide and coach our Strategic Partners.

WIN is the only home inspection company with in-house training approved by TREC for 15+ value-added ancillary services. SPs also receive technical training, industry certifications, and continuing education credits and ongoing coaching to help them build a rewarding business with confidence.


We offer the only end-to-end marketing program in the industry. WIN SPs have access to the largest marketing team in the home inspection industry and provide support for digital and email marketing, paid ads, print collateral and coaching for in-person meetings. We invest in measurable marketing methods to help generate leads by providing a personalized website to build a strong local presence, along with search engine optimized digital content, which is integrated with Facebook and Google.

Our digital and print marketing collateral is the most innovative in the industry, uniquely designed to target various audiences, and is continually refreshed to help you stand out.


WIN is continually investing in the success of its SPs by fostering a community based on mutual respect and care for one another. WIN’s annual business conference, or WBC, is one of the biggest platforms for Strategic Partners to network, engage in camaraderie and learn from one another.

Michael Bergren WIN Home Inspector“Attending WBC has been a fantastic learning experience. I’ve learned so much from networking with other SP’s on how to effectively market and create new business over the course of the year. I’ve also gained a ton of insight into the importance of building a digital presence and am now equipped with the knowledge to put that initiative into action!”
