Default Important update about Porch.com's purchase of Inspection Support Network (ISN).

After Porch.com purchases ISN, InterNACHI's founder Nick Gromicko purchases a stake in Porch.com:

As many of you know, I was very vocal about the concerns I had about Porch.com (America's largest repair contractor) buying out two of the inspection industry's vendors. First, they bought up HON (Home Owner's Network). Then, very recently, Porch.com bought up ISN (Inspection Support Network). In an effort to preserve the integrity of our profession, especially with regard to consumer data, I took action that places me in a position where I am more able to assure that consumers won't be inadvertently harmed. Today, October 4, 2017, I purchased a portion of Porch.com.

WOW!!!
I was only joking earlier on FB when I said you were just going to have to buy Porch. I am always amazed at the lengths you go to in order to protect our industry and consumers.

Thanks Nick

Enough of a stake that you have any say in what they do?

Thanks Nick. You're a good man who cares about our industry and I respect you to no end, because of that. Really quick I'd also like to say Thank You for caring for all of those children at Christmas. I read that the other day and man to man, you're an alright fellow. I've talked to you for a lot of years now and you are in my top 5 favorite people of all time. Love you to no end and then some. I pray for you, your family, staff, animals, InterNACHI membere, etc. often and I just wanted to say: thank you for being the 1 and only Nick Gromicko. Love your brother Ben as well and your sons. All of you have been nothing but good to me in so many ways. I've laughed along the way. Stay safe. Wishing you the best.

One of the measures Porch has agreed to is to install a "Wall of Checks" in my office at InterNACHI in Boulder, Colorado. These are 100 signed, blank checks. If I hear of a client of an InterNACHI member who has a complaint about Porch, I'm authorized to take down one of the checks, fill in the name, and send it to that consumer. Porch has agreed to replenish the checks as I use them to resolve any complaints about Porch. I will regularly report to InterNACHI members the status of the Wall of Checks.

Excellent tactical move. You and NACHI are truly a great force for the inspection industry. Since so many of us are one man operations, it's like you are helping each person individually. Thank you for all you do.

Dennis and Nick, when is this ever going to happen? Make it happen if at all possible. It is much needed and will be appreciated by the majority.

Wow, so then, you technically own a percentage of ISN. (even if it's not directly).
