Terry McGee, the new Director of Franchise Development for the WIN Home Inspection franchise, brings years of experience in the franchising world

WIN Home Inspection is pleased to welcome Terry McGee as our Director of Franchise Development. Terry has spent many years developing franchises and expanding companies, and he knows how to franchise aggressively.

WIN Home Inspection is one of the fastest-growing home inspection franchises in the country and is ranked as a top franchise opportunity by Entrepreneur magazine, Franchise Business Review and by G.I. Jobs. WIN stands apart from  competitors by offering a consistent, professional home inspection service that home buyers appreciate and real estate agents respect. Training, technology, and marketing support help franchise owners develop loyal relationships in the real estate industry that lead to a steady stream of customer referrals.

Terry has managed national and international development for several service related franchisors over the last 19 years. He has managed discovery days and training sessions, overseen marketing and sales teams, developed follow-up procedures for lead and sales generation, managed lead generation programs, conducted webinars on lead generation, and ensured legal compliance with franchise agreements.

“I’ve known about WIN for several years before joining their team,” Terry says. “I researched WIN and checked out the housing and home inspection industries. I also asked our Strategic-Partners how well their business was doing. Through all this I saw what WIN had to offer.”

Terry expects franchise candidates to contact WIN’s Strategic-Partners while researching the business because they confirm what Terry already told them: Terry enjoys the simplicity and strength of the WIN model, and franchising with WIN doesn’t cost much and doesn’t need infrastructure.

“When they’re making validation calls they’ll hear what I already told them. A very simple question to ask Strategic-Partners is, ‘Would you do it again?’” Terry says. “Across the board everyone told me yes. WIN is a good business not only because of the industry’s strength but also because of the support WIN has to offer.”

Home inspection is one of the fastest-growing segments of the real estate franchise industry. The National Association of Realtors says 99% of its members recommend an inspection, and 77% of all home buyers hire inspectors before making their purchases. As home sales increase, so does the number of inspections.

“The first quarter for 2015 showed us up in double digits,” Terry says. “Overall, system-wide, the numbers are fantastic. Our name is continuing to grow in the industry. Realtors and real estate companies love what we’re offering — the professionalism and the efficiency of our reporting. The effect we’re having with our clientele and our Strategic-Partners is growing every day.”
