  2. We will reschedule the inspection if the inspector is showing signs of illness.
  3. We will clean our hands thoroughly prior to and during the inspection.
  4. We will keep a safe distance, not shaking hands or elbow bumping.
  5. Whenever possible, we will wipe down doorknobs, faucet handles and work surfaces.

We appreciate your trust during this challenging time. We will continue our mission of ensuring confident home ownership with a particular focus on the health and safety of all of our customers.

Welcome to Pillar To Post. As part of your community, we are pleased to provide our local customers real estate professionals, home buyers and home sellers with a home inspection service that brings to the buying or selling of a home unmatched quality, precision, integrity, and professionalism.

We call what we do The Moment of Truth. It is the moment when the emotion of buying and selling a home meets the reality of the issues of that home. Our work is to communicate effectively, knowledgeably, efficiently, and openly about the condition of a home. We understand that our customers trust us to inform and educate them about what we see and what we find, and this is a trust we hold in the highest regard.

About Kristin Short:

Kristin Short found her interest in becoming a Pillar To Post Home Inspector years ago when she purchased a home in La Grande, Oregon. Her Pillar To Post Home Inspection was so impressive and positive, that the idea becoming an inspector stayed on her mind as she honed her customer services skills in other industries. Her primary goals are to provide excellent customer service and a positive experience for the home buyer, home seller or real estate professional.

In Kristin’s spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family and keeping up her kids’ school functions. She also loves the outdoors and can be found hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, riding horses and dancing with her better half every chance she gets.
