Walker has sold over $20 million in commercial, industrial real estate and rolling stock each year for the past three years.
Walker Commercial Services, Inc. has three divisions within the company; real estate sales, real estate management and leasing division, and the equipment and rolling stock sales and auction division.
During economic downturns, the need for liquidation auctions increases. In order to meet the corporate clients, financial institutions, attorneys, estates and bankruptcy court’s needs. Over the past eleven years, Walker Commercial Services has conducted an average of four to five large equipment auctions each year.
As the increasing need for a secure facility to maintain and store rolling stock and equipment became essential, Walker purchased a 10,000 sf centrally located auction facility in Roanoke, VA.
The auction facility is situated on a 5.5 acre tract of land that is fenced with security cameras that scan and record the perimeter of the property. The security surveillance is automatically transferred to the internet. The building is also equipped with roll up doors, drive-through doors, restroom, cashier and clerking stations and wireless connection for our auction clerking software.
In addition to the equipment auctions, Walker Commercial Services, Inc. sells real estate, including commercial buildings, warehouses, large tracts of land, retail stores, medical facilities, spec homes, etc. throughout Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee.
