Meet The Face Behind Walker Home Inspection
I’m Steven Walker, the proud owner of Walker Home Inspection. I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
From a young age, I enjoyed taking things apart and discovering how they work. In 1994, I managed the construction of my home and realized that quality workmanship does not happen on its own, prompting a passion in me for quality workmanship.
Over the next twenty-plus years, I went on to hold a successful career in project management. I added years of experience in hands-on home renovations, including design, complete gutting, and rebuilding of bathrooms, kitchens, living areas, roofing, decks, and outbuildings.
However, this didn’t stop me from learning more about my industry. As I kept looking up other aspects of construction, I came across home inspections. And, what I noticed was really surprising. Through my research, I realized the home inspection business in Ontario is unregulated and unlicensed, meaning that anyone with a business card, regardless of skills, can pose as a home inspector.
In 2019, I decided I could make a positive difference in the industry, so I decided to take the next step in my career. I applied my knowledge and experience to a full-time career in home inspection by starting Walker Home Inspection, which received a tremendous response.
The part of this business I most enjoy is my interactions with my clients. From the first contact through to the actual inspection, I am approachable and available to my customers. After completing and wrapping up the home inspection, I am similarly happy to sit down with my clients and answer any questions to ensure they are getting the knowledge they need.
As an individual, I believe what sets me apart from others is the clear, comprehensive, and timely way I run my business.
I attribute my success to my on-site interactions with clients, followed by the relatable, detailed, and easy-to-read report that I provide within hours of the inspection.
Receiving reviews from satisfied clients thanking me for saving them years of heartache and a plethora of repair costs has given me immense satisfaction over the years and continues to inspire me to do my best.
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also absolutely love playing with my four toddler grandchildren, who keep me young and on my toes.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things that matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
