Professional Training: Every Pillar To Post home inspector is trained in the classroom and in the field. You can have confidence in the fact that all Pillar To Post inspectors are required to continually upgrade their skills and to keep current with new technologies and professional standards.
Shauna Barker and her son, Justin Barker, chose to open a family-owned and operated Pillar To Post home inspection team because they were ready to work for themselves. Shauna was drawn to the home inspection industry, having owned rental properties and renovated many properties in the past. She enjoys helping people learn about home care and make an educated decision when buying a home.
Another aspect Shauna enjoys about home inspection is how she’s always learning. Some of it can be humorous when you see DIY repairs or renovations, and it’s also interesting to see how home building and renovating has improved over the years.
Prior to owning a Pillar To Post franchise, Shauna was the owner/operator of a transport company, as well as the CFO for a sunglass company. In her free time, Shauna enjoys spending time with her family playing board games, card games and putting together puzzles. She loves the outdoors and spending time with friends.
The Barker family is competitive and we like to challenge each other, but at the same time encourage each of us to continually become better people.
Justin Barker teamed up with his mom, Shauna Barker, to open a family-owned Pillar To Post home inspection team. They wanted the freedom to work for themselves while helping others. What Justin most enjoys about home inspection is spending time teaching people important details about home care and helping them make an educated decision when buying a home.
Prior to owning his own Pillar To Post franchise, Justin spend years working as a diesel technician. This is where Justin learned a lot about attention to detail and quality work, which are skills he honed into a career as a professional home inspector.
In Justin’s free time he enjoys working on and upgrading vehicles and hopes to someday have a garage that’s bigger than his home.
Kris McKoon is the newest member of the Barker Pillar To Post Team. Kris became a professional home inspector because it’s a great opportunity to continue learning valuable information and it’s a career he will be able to do throughout the rest of his life. Kris loves that every day and every home is different, so he never knows what kind of house he gets to inspect. He loves to meet and help new people through their new home buying experience.
Prior to becoming a professional home inspector with Pillar To Post, Kris worked in several fields. His main goal was to receive his nursing degree and specialize in the ER or ICU, because he loves helping people. For Kris, there is nothing more fulfilling in life than helping others and brightening their day. It’s important to him to help those who need help, so they have the opportunity to enjoy life, learn, and become better.
In Kris’ free time, he enjoys getting outdoors, basketball, dirt bikes, movies, games, and really good food.
