Former Marine Finds Perfect Career Fit: Will Bring No. 1 Home Inspection Brand to Jacksonville, Crystal Coast

Bookmark and Share Hubert, NC - March 12, 2020 -

(Hubert, NC) --Having served as a Logistics Officer in the United States Marine Corps for 11 years, Tiffany Tigh considered herself a jack of all trades. And when she combined that background with her bachelor’s degree in architecture, she found the perfect fit for a new career with Pillar To Post Home Inspectors®, the No. 1 home inspection company in North America. Serving as both active duty and reservist, the 34-year-old Tigh was stationed everywhere from Quantico, Va., to Savannah, New Orleans and Southern California – as well as here at Camp Lejeune – while also deploying to Afghanistan from 2011-2012. A resident of Hubert, Tigh launched operations with Pillar To Post Home Inspectors in February, serving the greater Jacksonville area up through the Crystal Coast from Surf City to Beaufort and north to New Bern.

Tigh had been wanting to transition into the home construction/real estate field when a friend related a bad experience with a home inspector while trying to sell a home, which piqued her interest in the industry. “My position as a logistics officer in the Marine Corps translated well into home inspection. I had been a generalist in my field – a jack of all trades – which is exactly what a home inspector is,” Tigh said. “I know myself well enough to know I needed help in terms of the business side of starting a small business and that’s where Pillar To Post Home Inspectors came in.”

Pillar To Post Home Inspectors is the brand to which more than three million families have turned to for more than 25 years to be their trusted advisor when buying or selling a home. Consistently ranked for 23 years on Entrepreneur Magazine’s annual Franchise500®, Pillar To Post Home Inspectors is enjoying its eighth consecutive year as No. 1 in its category on that coveted ranking. In addition, the company has 5-Star status with VetFran, a program offered by the International Franchise Association that provides discounted franchise fees to veterans.

“Pillar To Post is very veteran-friendly and many of the other franchisees I’ve met through them are veterans, as well, and they have quickly become my mentors and friends,” Tigh said. “I get the camaraderie I had in the military, in a field I’m passionate about, serving a community of military families.”

A professional evaluation both inside and outside the home is at the core of Pillar To Post Home Inspectors’ service. Pillar To Post Home Inspectors input data and digital photos into a computerized report. All information is provided to clients in a customized binder for easy reference, allowing homebuyers or sellers to make confident, informed decisions.
