Contact William ‘Bill’ Walker III

President at Walker Commercial Services

William “Bill” J. Walker, III is the Owner of Walker Commercial Services, Inc. Bill is a graduate of Radford University, where he earned his bachelor of science. He also graduated from the Certified Auctioneers Institute (CAI) and Mendenhall School of Auctioneering. He is a licensed Real Estate Broker and Auctioneer in Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina. 

With over 30 years of operational experience in Sales and Marketing, Bill currently oversees the selling, listing, leasing and managing of the real estate that comes through the office. Bill works directly with bankers, corporate clients and attorneys with distressed, foreclosure and REO properties. Bill travels throughout the Mid-Atlantic inspecting, evaluating and reporting about the collateral for sales or auctions. 

He was originally licensed as a real estate agent and an auctioneer in 1989, placing his license with Hall Associates, Inc. For nine years Bill designed and developed the Auction Division at Hall Associates, Inc. After obtaining his Broker License, he left Hall Associates, Inc. and started Walker Commercial Services, Inc. in January 2000. 

Walker Commercial specializes in representing corporate clients, financial institutions, attorneys, estates and the bankruptcy court in the Western District of Virginia. Walker has sold and/or evaluated property and equipment in every county in the Commonwealth of Virginia. 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, Walker has employed a full time equipment appraiser, Anthony Smithers. 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.
