Team reviews

I was referred to The Walker Team by a Bank of America Loan Officer. I was very happy with the overall experience I had with The Walker Team. They were very transparent in every phase of the home buying process. They asked me early on what my concerns were very early in the process & continued to address them throughout the home buying process. Keith & Mary are both technology savvy & utilized various technologies to aid me in my decision to buy a house. The Walker Team was very clear to state that there was no pressure to buy a property & wanted me to feel comfortable before placing an offer on a property. They were via quick to respond by email, text & almost always picked up on the first attempt to reach them by phone. The paperwork sign off system they utilized saved me many hours & was quite easy to use. The Walker Team also provided me with a year year home warranty that has already paid for itself in the few times I have used it. I would definitely contact them if I was going to buy or sell a property.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $650K in Santa Clara, CA.

The Walker Team helped my husband and me purchase our first home. They are extremely knowledgeable about the industry and were able to answer all our questions and concerns about the house buying process. They are very responsive, always getting back to us quickly via phone or email. They went above and beyond the call of duty to take care of us and help us close on our home. We will definitely recommend the Walker Team to others. Thanks for all your help, Keith and Mary!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $875K in Cupertino, CA.

Keith and Mary helped us sold our old home and then bought a new one.

First, our experience with the Walkers in selling our old home. They choreographed the inspections, fixes, slight remodeling, staging and open house seamlessly. Everything was smooth. They even threw a lunch party for our neighbors on the day of the open house to get them out of the way of real buyers. After we had accepted an offer, they worked with the buyer to make sure that the buyer's concerns were addressed so that we could close without a hitch. Having said all that, their service is not inexpensive compared to some other realtors who charged less for their service. However, the result that we got was well worth every penny we paid for their service.

Next, our experience with the Walkers in buyer our new home. To help with our search, Mary set up an alert list for us on new listings in the area that we were interested in. That was a great help for us. When we find something that we liked, we would go the open houses or have Mary showed us the property. We must have Mary and their assistant Lisa shown us over twenty homes. We have also made five or six offers. During this whole process, the Walkers never pressure us to make offers that we were not comfortable with. In our first offer that was accepted, the transaction eventually fell through because we could not agree with the seller on credit for fixes. The difference between us and the seller was only a few thousand dollars. Yet, there was no pressure from the Walkers in accepting the seller's offer. We were very impressed. After our offer for the home we just moved in was accepted, the closing process was again smoothly choreographed.

Overall, we had a first class experience with the Walkers.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.375M in Linfield Oaks, Menlo Park, CA.

Mary and Keith are the best real estate team any buyers, especially first-time home buyers like us, could ask for. From the minute we met Mary and Keith, we were very impressed. We were well prepared and extremely well supported during the entire purchase process. We especially were grateful for how proactive they were in taking us to open houses during the weekdays, and with how thorough they were with the documentation. Because of this, we were able to submit our initial offer earlier than other parties, which was critical in purchasing our new home which we absolutely love. After the offer was accepted, Mary and Keith were invaluable throughout the inspection process (appearing in person!) and ensured at all times that we were informed and prepared, which was invaluable. We look forward to working with only Mary and Keith in the future!

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $550K in Santa Clara, CA.

Back in 2009, my wife and I became home buyers for the first time. With The Walker Team as our Realtor, we became educated in the home buying process and they delivered us our home during a tough housing market. Without them, I'm certain we wouldn't have been successful.

After some informative housing tours, we realized very quickly that buying the home you want requires a master plan, state of the art buying tools, and a complete knowledge of the administrative process; Keith and Mary provided all of these! Quickly, we targeted our home search and waited for their buying software to email us any matches. It didn't take long for that to happen and when it did we were the first ones to see the house and to submit an offer. The Walker Team fought hard for us the administrative process and got us the house we really wanted.

With The Walker Team, you get the whole package. They were always there for us answering any question that we would think of and give us exactly the feedback we needed. I wish everyone had the chance to buy or sell a home with The Walker Team!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $575K in Cambrian Park, San Jose, CA.

Keith and Mary Walker (aka "The Walker Team" went 'above and beyond the call of duty' to ensure the many extra details were taken care of during our recent purchase of a townhome as an investment. When we approached them that we were looking for a specific set of requirements (recently built, great location, higher end fixtures, etc) they looked over at each other and then to us and stated that we should definitely take a look at a specific property that had just come onto the market. We did visit and it was exactly what we were looking for and we put in an offer to buy that evening. Without a thorough knowledge of the local market this would never have happened so quickly. We were extremely pleased with every aspect of their service throughout the whole transaction. Exceptional attention to detail, great communications and the use of recent technology used in the signing(s) made this a whole lot more pleasurable. We highly recommend Keith and Mary should you be buying or selling, you will immensely satisfied with their professionalism and customer service! - John and Coco Krischer

Sold a Townhouse home in 2011 in Willow Glen, San Jose, CA.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mary and Keith both in selling my home during the low part of the recession and in purchasing a home in Willow Glen this past year. My home in Cupertino sold over asking and over a weekend. A year later they worked with me in purchasing my new home in Willow Glen, which I purchased much less than the asking price. Both of my transactions went very smoothly. The purchase of my new home was a reverse mortgage purchase and was a lot more complicated, but, they handled it so professionally and without a glitch.

I so appreciate The Walker Team in their support, knowledge and expertise and, not withstanding, the pleasure of working with them. They make what could be an incredibly stressful experience, a whole lot more palatable. They understand and exemplify the meaning of service and integrity.

Sold a home in 2011 in Monta Vista, Cupertino, CA 95014.

If you are looking for a full service real estate firm, The Walker Team is the way to go. We bought and sold a home with them and felt that the process went extremely smoothly and they took care of everything related to the sale of our home like inspections, repairs, staging etc., We very much appreciated their flexibility with meeting us after office hours and also their use of the DocuSign Tool. We were on vacation when our home was sold but we did not need to change any of our plans thanks to their use of technology. They did a great job of keeping us posted on all developments. We would definitely recommend them to our friends.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $850K in West San Jose, Saratoga, CA.

Keith and Mary were referred to us by our friends who had used them to purchase a new home recently. From the moment we met them, we felt very comfortable working with them. They worked hard to understand our needs and gain our trust. We never felt like we were being pushed or rushed into any decision. They made themselves available for all our questions at all times during the entire transaction. Another thing that we greatly appreciate was the way they worked as a team. Mary was awesome in understanding our likes/dislikes and found us a great house and Keith was fabulous in negotiating the price. Previously we had a bad experience with another real estate agent and we are glad that this worked out great.

Bought a home in 2011 in Mission College, Santa Clara, CA 95054.

In 2011 I contacted Mary and Keith when I was looking to buy a condo. They understood my needs and helped me pick out a place that met all of my specifications. They are both cool and professional, and fun to work with. They made the whole process very easy and trouble-free.
