Steven M. Crist - Owner/Repairman

Who We Are:
The Maintenance Shop is a locally owned and family-operated business established in 1994. Owner Steven M. Crist has nearly 30 years experience in the home repair and property management industry.

Steve started in the home repair industry in 1985 as a maintenance helper at a 400+ unit apartment community after completing a one-year course in Building & Apartment Maintenance from the National Association of Home Builders; Home Builder's Institute. He completed this course in eight months at the top of his class. Because of a life-long interest in locks, he attained a certification in locksmithing during this time as well.


Since then Steve has attended numerous seminars in the field of property management and home repair, managed and supervised maintenance of rental property up to 450 units, and completed several thousand work-orders and repair requests. For information on what repair tasks "The Maintenance Shop" can do for you please visit our "Services" section.


The name "The Maintenance Shop" comes from many years of working in apartment communities that had a location on the property called the maintenance shop. This shop contained everything needed to complete any task on the property. Steve wants customers to feel that by calling The Maintenance Shop they have the same advantage; one shop that can handle any repair need they may have.
