Did you know that besides being a family-owned business legacy, Homecare Inc has been remodeling in Bloomington, Minnesota, for 60 years? As a family-owned small business, it humbles us to think about the countless clients in Bloomington and the surrounding area that have trusted us with renovating their homes.
Founded in 1960 by Stanley Earl, Homecare’s focus has always been residential remodeling. Stanley managed building and construction, and his wife served as the bookkeeper. Their son, Steve, grew up alongside the business and learned lessons from watching his parents work.
After graduating from Southwest High School in Minneapolis, Steve attended the U of M to pursue a career in Corporate Advertising. Upon receiving his degree, Steve began working for his dad until he found an advertising job. While Steve may have thought advertising was his future, he fell in love with the family business, and has been with Homecare ever since!
Stanley taught Steve so much about running a company. The greatest nugget of wisdom he internalized was, take care of your business, and it will take care of you. Eventually, Stanley retired and officially passed the company down to Steve. Taking on the family business was not without its challenges, but Steve embraced that things in this industry are never the same from one day to the next.
Steve’s ethos is simple; residential remodeling is interpersonal at its core. It’s about building relationships based on mutual trust. Steve also cares about his community. He not only does most of his work in Bloomington but lives there too, and it’s where he raised his two kids. (In fact, he’s a member of the Bloomington Athletic Association’s Sports Hall of Fame for coaching youth!)
If there’s one thing Steve wants clients to know about him, it’s that he prides himself on being an honest contractor who cares about them and his team. His favorite part of what he does is taking on tough building challenges and seeing satisfied clients at the competition of a project.
Steve and his team plan to continue working and remodeling in the Bloomington area for years to come. They’re invested in this community, and look forward to serving many more of its wonderful residents! Thank you to all of our past, present, and future clients. We do what we do because of you!
