Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Twin Falls, ID.
Walt did a great job in helping us negotiate with a very difficult seller. In the end, we got the best deal possible and are very happy with our decision. I would highly recommend Walt and The Hess Team to anyone looking to buy or a sell a home.
My mother's house was on the market over a year during the time the housing market was virtually at a standstill. He worked tirelessly to keep the listing before the public and follow up on any leads. I think the thing I appreciated the most was his availability and knowledge of what makes a property listing move in a market that was stagnant. His support during this time was both sensitive and professional.
Walt Hess was the best Real Estate agent we have ever had because he was professional, faithful to us as sellers, considerate of the buyer, knowledgeable, and a great problem solver.
Walt always went the extra mile for us as sellers. He helped us to look at the options that were best. Do we rent our house or list it? He handled getting renters in and out of the home when it wasn't selling. That is not a simple job. Making sure the people are treating the house properly for resale or that it is working and warm enough in the winter took many trips out to the home.
When the not so considerate neighbor plowed up the horse shoe driveway he went to the county, title company and other experts to be able to understand and represent our rights. He was on the phone talking to the neighbor and telling me when I needed the lawyer.
His encouragement was vital many times in our relationship. When my husband died he made me feel like he wouldn't give up on the tasks at hand which was down sizing to live within my means.We listed on and off with him in a time span of 5 years.
His professional input was very very valuable and appreciated. Walt made me feel like I had a brother helping with hard decisions.I have and will continue to recommend him to friends and acquaintances.
