A Buyer's Choice Home Inspections 

477 Speers Road Winnipeg MB R2J 1N1

(204) 997-3848


Problem. I am a third party company helping a home inspection franchise with 150 locations.  Many of them don't have a Google my Business listing.  Those that do and other inspection businesses are categorized correctly under "Home Inspector".  I even created a new listing for another franchisee in the US and used Home Inspector.  Now I don't have the category option for Home Inspector.  The closest thing I found was "Commercial Realestate inspector" which is close, but not really as accurate and not what home owners are searching.  


Please help! How to I get my listings categorized correctly under "Home Inspector"?
