What Does a Good Home Inspection Mean?
Meet Yvette Lo + Ted Xavier of Pillar to Post
Hi Yvette and Ted! Can you introduce yourself to our readers? Tell us your full name, and your background/ your story leading up to owning your franchise of Pillar to Post.
Hello! We are Yvette Lo and Ted Xavier, husband and wife team at the LoXavier Team at Pillar to Post.
Ted is a Navy veteran who comes from a background with multiple degrees and licensing in Project Management specializing in infrastructure engineering and catastrophic adjusting for several large insurance companies. (He helps rebuild your home when the big bad wolf blows it down)
Yvette worked in hospitality and restaurant management, and later on became a litigation paralegal for over a decade. We’ve always wanted to have our own business and be a great employer. Home inspection allows us to combine both of our expertise, and more importantly to help people, so we decided to purchase a Pillar to Post franchise.
While there are other PTP franchise in Denver area, we are proud to be the only minority owned PTP franchise in the entire state of Colorado.
What services does ‘Pillar to Post’ offer?

Below are a couple of examples—
Jickson C.: “As a realtor who will likely be selling the properties my clients buy I prefer home inspectors who are very thorough but not alarming. Ted and his team does a great job of doing exactly that. They also take the time to dig in when they start noticing an issue, so you have proper information. Highly recommend.”
Katherine M.: “Ted and Yvette are THE BEST! Guarantee you won’t find any better, personally or professionally. Not only are they reliable, detailed, fairly priced, offer excellent customer service but really go the extra mile to calm nerves, answer any and all questions. As an agent, I won’t use and or recommend anyone else.”
Are you from Colorado? Which neighborhood did you choose to call home?
We both have lived in multiple States and multiple countries.
While we’re not from Colorado, we’ve had the chance to work in the Denver metro area for different projects and fell in love with it, so we decided to settle in Colorado about 3 years ago. Colorado has so much to offer, from the beautiful front range to the rich tapestry of diverse group of people.
We absolutely love it here!
What else would you like Denver to know about your company?
We are grateful to be a part of our clients’ real estate transaction. While it is serious business, we have the privilege to get to know our clients on a very personal level, to learn about each of their stories, and even developing friendships. On top of the technical part of the job, this is the part that we absolutely enjoy the most.
Having a home inspection done is a great investment FOR your investment. It gives homebuyers negotiating powers for seller concession. For example, this past year, with our wonderful realtor partners, we were able to help two of our clients saved over $110k (each) off of the listing prices!
How would you describe the personality or “Vibe” of Denver?
If Denver is a person, they are very chilled, loves nature and easy to be friends with.
Like an onion- not that they make you cry, but they’ve got layers! (Shrek reference, anyone?)
