  • From his earliest childhood memory, touring builder model homes was his favorite Sunday afternoon activity. Born in Oregon, Mr. Walker moved to Dallas in 1978 where he attended Texas Christian University and earned degrees in both Finance and Real Estate. He worked full time during the day at a large Fort Worth bank, and attended the University at night. He continued his education and completed his MBA in 1988.
    Once Mr. Walker earned his undergraduate degrees, he was recruited into the management training program of Texas American Bank. In 1985, he was pleased to accept a loan officer position in the Real Estate Department of the Bank. At age 25, Mr. Walker produced and managed over $300 million in commercial real estate loans and soon became one of the youngest vice presidents in the bank’s history. Mr. Walker experienced the “wild ride” of the 1980’s Texas Real Estate market and eventually was able to share his experience with his new employer, a New York bank located in Manhattan. “Most people who survived the 1980’s real estate market either have nightmares to this day or possess a resulting nervous tick,” says Mr. Walker.
    “My commercial real estate experience definitely causes me to be more conservative when advising my clients. I try to focus them on the ultimate resale value of properties in which they are interested, both short term and long term, since circumstances and investment horizons tend to be fluid. In fact, I make an effort to sell only those properties to my clients in which I would invest my own money.”
    Licensed to sell residential real estate since 1985, Mr. Walker began selling homes full time in 1997. “I enjoy working with a wide range of buyers and sellers, with properties ranging from cottages to castles. My continued goal is to offer the same high level of service at all price points,” says Mr. Walker. In 2006, Mr. Walker surpassed his previous production goals with over $38,000,000 in total sales volume.
