Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Mountain View, CA.
Keith & Mary are awesome! We met Mary at an open house and were immediately impressed because she was so friendly & knowledgeable. She stood out from all the other realtors we'd encountered at open houses because she was so engaged & attentive.
As first-time home buyers, Mary & Keith helped us at every step through the house hunting, offer-crafting, & negotiation process. They were super patient & helpful as we narrowed in on what we were looking for. They answered all of our questions about understanding contingencies/contracts, pricing, disclosures & just really helped us understand the crazy Bay Area market.
They were extremely responsive & diligent as we crafted offers on the tight timelines requested by most sellers. They'd offer advice on crafting an offer but were never pushy, always urging us to go with what we were comfortable with.
Once we bought our house, they put us in touch with a great contractor who helped us do a few renovations (something we were also new to). They helped us navigate our HOA, as we moved in.

Oh, from where do I start? So much to say but will try to keep as minimum as possible!
I was a first time home buyer. A good friend of mine recommended me to the Walker group.
I had been in the market for a couple of months looking for homes but nothing worked out as planned. Then I met Mary and from the get-go I was impressed by her professionalism and go
getter nature. She explained me the whole home buying process well and her role in that process.
I worked mostly with Mary and a little bit with Keith. But both are experts in this field. When we finally found a home I liked, Mary was very thoughtful in framing the offer and making sure that our offer gets accepted without costing me an arm and a leg in this competitive market.
Very good negotiator. She was very diligent, very quick in responses and working on the case and getting things done. She also has a good network of inspectors which I used for inspection of my home which helped me. When I was confused in making decision, she gave me valuable advice and helped me get over the finishing line.
I have no hesitation in recommending anyone to Mary & the Walker group for your home search.
They will get it done! And my recommendation to a new home buyer is that you also do your homework and be firm in your decisions and rest will be taken care by Mary & the group.

WalkerGroup is highly professional and would recommend anybody esp. new home buyers blindly. We were also referred by one of our friends and at the end of our purchase we were extremely happy the way they handled the whole cycle of buying home.

Keith and Mary were recommended by a friend who played soccer with Mary. They are a great team ... they compliment each other so well ... Mary being thorough and diligent in all responses and house showings, Keith helping to drive the deal and negotiations 'home'. Mary is quite possibly the nicest person I have ever met ... always so friendly and never a bad word to say about anyone. I looked forward to meeting up with her at the homes she was showing because it felt like meeting up with a friend. My husband appreciated working with Keith, who was straightforward and thorough in his analysis of all documents. The Walker team was a pleasure to work with, and found us our perfect first house in only 2 months.

Primary point of contact: Sya Reschar
We are first time home buyers. We saw this house and liked it immediately and had only 2 days to decide and place an offer. And Sya was of immense help with various decisions to be made and get all the details taken care of in that short time span. Then again it was a sprint to get the loan application in and approved and get it to escrow. Sya and her team supported us all the way.
Her guidance and experience and expertise were invaluable. We could not have done it without her. Or we would still be house hunting.
I had been struggling as a prospective first time homebuyer in the very competitive Bay Area market for a few years. After practically giving up for a time, I decided to try again and eventually found my way to the Walker Group. With their help, I was able to finally find and buy my first home.
I tried a number of agents in my search for a home. Compared to others, the Walker Group is the most organized and professional team that I have worked with. They had excellent communication from the very beginning to get a clear understanding of what my priorities were as a buyer. Their communication throughout the search, offer, and closure process was always prompt and clear. I believe that I would not have been able to purchase my particular home without their extensive network and quickness.
Our property ended up going through an extended buying process due to some trouble on the seller's side. The Walker Group was always quick to get me updates on the progress of the seller, as well as coordinating our own side to expedite the process as much as we could. At no point did I feel that I was uninformed of what was going on.
Overall, I am very satisfied with my experience, and I believe that their service is a level above the other agents that I have tried working with.

I cannot recommend Keith and Mary enough - there is no one else I would trust with my Real Estate needs. I used the Walker team to sell my condo, which they timed perfectly, communicated clearly, and got me far above my asking price! I am absolutely thrilled and I cannot wait to work with them again. Stellar, just incredible work!

Keith and Mary Walker are remarkable agents. After selling our home with them last year, we worked with them in 2014 to find a new home. As this was our third home buying experience, we were very picky, which was difficult given the hyper-competitive environment in the SF Bay Area. They were extremely patient throughout the process, and never tried to persuade us on settling for something less than we desired. When others might have given up in despair (one of our offers had 60 competing), Keith and Mary were always bullish that a good opportunity would come. Indeed it finally did, due in no small part to their strong network of peers. In short, they were able to find us not just a fantastic home, but also helped guide us through negotiations to arrive at something below our 'walk-away' price - which in the current climate seemed nothing short of a miracle. Both of them are absolute experts in their field, and as I remarked in a previous review, it sometimes feels almost as though you have an unfair advantage over others when working with them. I learned a great deal from both of them throughout the process, and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a highly professional team that genuinely cares about you from beginning to end.

It was my wisest decision to choose Keith and Mary for my first home, they are extremely responsive and professional not only till closing but even after that. They immediately understood my requirement, and helped me get my dream home my expected price range. With seller's market and multiple offers on every home they managed me get my offer through even without having the highest offer.
I have recommended them to few of my friends, hope to work with them again in future.

Even though this was our first time buying a home, I am still confident in saying that the Walker Group are the best realtor team around. They were extremely patient with all the thousands of questions we had about *everything.* They always provided very clear, thorough, and timely responses to all of my 2am emails-in-a-panic (though not always replying by 3am, they're only human).
They were very patient with us as we narrowed down our search, always taking care to get at our own decision making processes and how they might find other homes that would be a better fit.
Even through closing and beyond they are a great trustworthy team that was able to handle everythin I could throw at them.
