Our free, 90 minute assessment will help you take your first steps forward and alleviate stress. There’s no risk and no commitment required.

Put an end to Confusion & Overwhelm

Getting a bunch of quotes from competing experts can be really overwhelming. Each of them will have different ideas, outline different risks, and charge different fees to achieve the same goals. If you’re not an industry expert, those quotes, and that advice, can be extremely difficult to evaluate. Read More

When building your own home, you want someone with years of experience, a track record of success, and excellent communication skills. Walden checks all three boxes. Get a much better understanding of what you need to do next to get your project started.

For example: are there cost-efficiencies to be found by building things in a particular order? Is it better to “move or improve”? It can be extremely difficult to get unbiased opinions from contractors who all specialize in slightly different areas and have different preferences! And, when there is hundreds of thousands of investment dollars on the line, it’s justified to have someone in your corner!

The Assessment Process

As you know, Walden Homes prides itself on providing extremely thorough analysis during the assessment process, ensuring no major setbacks when it comes to timelines, it also means your budget won't fluctuate drastically throughout the duration of the project.
