We had the good fortune of connecting with Horace Shivers and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Horace, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I started my business to create generational weath for my kids. I currently have a son Eli, 8 and a daughter Journey, 1. I wanted them to have a busniess that they could own once they finish high school that would generate income instantly and something they could pass to there kids if they choose to. I also wanted freedom to be actively involve in their extracurricular activities. Shivers Superior Home Inspection provides me the flexibilty without working a 9-5 to financial support my family and be more of a hands on parent with my wife Patrice,34.
What should our readers know about your business?
What set us apart from others is our customer service. We currently have almost 200+ reviews on our website along with over 100+ images of satisfied customers on our Facebook page. We pride ourselves on providing superior services to every realtor and customer that we provide service for. We encourage our clients to attend the home inspection to get a feel of the home and to ask questions during the home inspection. During Cov-19 we have provided masks and gloves for those that need it during the inspection. Shivers Superior Home Inspection is successful because of our availability we provide to our customers. We schedule our appointments around the clients willingness to attend the inspection. We also provide a quick turnaround with our report. Our clients have their report less than 24 hours after the inspection is done so they can make the home buying decision they need to make as quickly as possible. Shivers Superior Home Inspection recently achieved accrediation from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). I would like the world to know that SSHI is a licensed and insured company that has provided services for over several hundred clients. We like to thank all the realtors and previous clients that have played a vital role in the success of our company. We plan to continue to grow our company with more inspectors as earliest as 2021.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
If a friend was visiting me I would take him to an Atlanta Falcons football game if they are a sports fans. At Mercedes-Benz Stadium you can enjoy watching a good football team along with reasonable concession stand prices. If they are not sports fan I would take them to the Sundial restaurant in Atlanta, GA . The Sundial is were you go and have stellar food along with a spectacular view. You get a 360 view of Atlanta and you must dress business casual to attend so its a perfect place for dating and having business meetings.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My wife and my parents deserves a lot of recognition for my success. My wife has been very supportive in helping establish my business. She provides ideas and entail on things I should I apply to my business. For instance, she recently provided me a yard sign that states ” Shivers Superior Home Inspection is currently doing a home inspection and no trespassing is allowed” . The sign brings a awareness to realtors and potential homebuyers not to intrude the house why a home inspection is being conducted. My hard work and dedication comes from both of my parents. I watched both of them work on their jobs for 30+ years untill they retired. That takes a lot of dedication and will to work on a job that long.
