Real Estate & Escrow

The Termite Guy and IRC Services Keeps Your Escrow Moving Fast!

Why make getting through escrow more of a hassle by calling several contractors, when you can solve it all and make one call to 1-877-TERMITE? The Termite Guy maintains both a B-1 General Contractors license and a C-39 roofing and waterproofing license (lic.# 771813) from the Contractors State License Board (CSLB). On any property you have for sale we are able to treat for termites AND make any repairs from wood destroying organisms (WDOs) as necessary…and our turnaround time is fast!

As a Realtor you can rest assured you won’t have to waste time coordinating several contractors to get your job done and out of escrow. The Termite Guy and IRC Services offers the highest level of professional services for real estate because we perform more termite inspections for escrow on a daily basis than any other termite and pest control company in Southern California.

We understand the real estate industry and the time constraints of your escrow. We are escrow specialists. We get termite reports returned to you within 24 hours. We offer complimentary termite inspections and are always happy to give a second opinion. In many situations we do not require roof releases on fumigations. If any tiles are broken we will fix them! Because we are licensed general contractors and roofers we make our own wood repairs and can replace any termite or dry rot damaged wood. Forget calling a painter out, we prime and paint it too! Real estate agents continue to use The Termite Guy when they have property for sale because we ARE THE BEST!

For over two decades The Termite Guy has consistently met and exceeded the Pest Control Operators of California (PCOC) standards as well as the Structural Pest Control Board (SPCB) standards for termite and pest inspections in Southern California. We inspect the interior, exterior, sub areas and attic of your home or business for signs of wood destroying pest and organisms, including termites, fungus as well as conditions that could be conducive to future infestations and infections. Reliability and dependability are musts in our industries, and two reasons why the top real estate agents choose to use The Termite Guy again and again.

Testimonials from Real Estate Professionals


Thank you very much for answering your phone yesterday evening and putting me in contact with Mark Petrick. The original company caved in once they new another company was going to get us what we needed as far as the clearance. I talked with Mark and we both agreed it was probably easier on everyone to keep this project with them. Once more you proved why you and your company are my 1st choice for termite work and I will continue to recommend your services to other Realtors. This one was the listing agents choice (and a bad one at that).

At Surterre Properties we demand the best. Personally I have been using The Termite Guy for years. In my 20+ years in real estate no one comes close to their professionalism, promptness, quality of work and courtesy. Absolutely NUMERO UNO.

Ed Gazich, Surterre Properties

You guys are great! I like dealing with both Scott Jones and Scott Rollins out of your Santa Ana office. Just today Scott re-inspected an area that I had concern (I am representing the buyer on this one). Scott had already been out there dealing with the 87-year-old seller a few times. Scott did not hesitate to go back there for me, and he got it done within 24 hours of me asking him to do so.

I will continue to use you guys and refer you.
