Twenty-four NOVA Members WOW Home Show Attendees

EDITED BY ASHI STAFF

The NOVA chapter promoted home inspections and the chapter on two fronts at the 2007 Spring Capital Home and Garden Show, February 22-25, at the Dulles Expo Center Chantilly, Va. With 24 members volunteering to help, the chapter had a presence both in the exhibit booth and on stage, presenting “Home Inspector to the Rescue: 10 most common issues homeowners will face during their next home inspection.”

The presenters were:

Brad Strange
Brian Koepf
Mike Stephens
Greg Caudill
Reggie Marston

“We filled the hall with about 100 people,“ ASHI member Reggie Marston reported. “At the end of the presentation, we had so many questions on home inspections, the management had to throw us off the stage so the next presenter could get on.“
