    We were so lucky that we found Walter. Fortunately, our first meeting with Walter was at an open house, and found immediately he was well informed about the sellers home and most importantly all the special features of the home, the highlights of the surrounding area and thorough knowledge of associated finances. We were so impressed by his knowledge and ease of style we not only purchased the home, we listed our home with him knowing we had the best chance of selling quickly and with ease. Once listed we received an offer within 5 hours! We contributed that to not only the state of the market but the impressive photos that showed the best features of our home. Walter worked tirelessly by communicating with us through every step right through the closing. He explained methodically the closing and wire process to ease our concerns for a smooth closing. We dont believe another realtor would have the patience to communicate effectively as Walter. He coordinated every detail so we had the confidence knowing the sale would go effortlessly. We have already recommended him to friends and will continue to do so. Walter is an absolute pro.

    Real estate agent, Walter Shepherd was recommended by a friend. Best recommendation I have ever received. A true professional, knowledgeable and caring. Walter goes above and beyond. My home in Gran Paradiso, Venice, Florida listed and sold in one week all because of the way Walter presented my home. I would highly recommend Walter Shepherd to anyone in the market to buy or sell their home. Walter is a true asset to Coldwell Banker Realty. They should be very proud to have Walter as part of their real estate family.

    I was having great difficulty in selling my condo. Walter knew the urgency in which I needed to sell it. He not only worked diligently in getting my condo sold, but he also involved other agents to assist. He involved me in the process but informing me in how to stage my condo and I followed his advise. I can not give enough adjectives to describe Walter's work ethic. I have already told others about him. Thank you Walter for "all" your hard work.

    Mary & David gave Walter 5 stars out of 5
    Walter is by far the most professional realtor we have ever worked with. We were relocating from Kentucky and had little time to look for a home while on a trip to Florida. He listened to what kind of house we were looking for and pulled a number of listings for us to review in advance of our trip. He scheduled all the showings to maximize our time and while looking at each property, he listened to our comments and adjusted the list of homes to match our criteria. Because of Walter's efficiency, market expertise and regional knowledge, we found the perfect home in 5 days. And, he negotiated a great deal for us! Once under contract, Walter expertly guided us through the many steps to closing and was onsite for us for the inspections, repairs and final walkthrough. He identified local resources for the home repairs, pool service, insurance, utilities, pest control and landscaping. Walter personally reviewed that all the repairs were completed properly and even delivered the required documents to the water company. Because of his attention to detail and commitment, we were able to close on the Florida home from Kentucky. His communication skills and responsiveness to emails, texts and phone calls is outstanding. He initiated communications whenever he thought there was something we needed to know or do and we could always rely on his prompt reply to our questions. If you are looking to buy a home in this area, Walter will provide you very professional, comprehensive and outstanding service!

    My husband and I were looking to purchase a second home in Florida. we contacted Walter and he put a search criteria together and begsn to send us listings. We found the perfect townhouse and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Walter assisted us every step of the way. We live in CT so Walter took the initiative to provide us with all the necessary information. Every email or text from us was answered immediately. His patience and understanding of our many questions was GREATLY APPRECIATED! From the mortgage contact, to insurance recommendations, property mgmt. Options, homewatch services, he provided details on how to set up our utilities and cable, he went to the inspection, followed up after the inspection, did the walk through and made sure everything was flawless so we could close while remaining in CT. If you are looking for a home in the Florida area, your very furst step should be to contact Walter Shepherd! HE TRULY GOES ANOVE AND BEYOND!

    What can I say ,Walter was awesome to work with !one can imagine being out of state and selling your property is never easy. Walter was able to handle everything from A-to-Z for us and take all of the stress out of it. There were some inspection items to be done. Walter coordinated the contractors all was done in a timely manner. If you want the job done and done well I would recommend Walter every day of the week

    Walter was fantastic to work with! He is friendly, knowledgeable, and organized. He went above and beyond for me and my husband while we searched the Sarasota area, and his expertise truly shows. My husband loved finding out Walter used to work in the field as a residential property appraiser, because it reassured us we were in good hands in our purchase. Making sure we made the right investment on a property we loved was really important to us. If you have a chance to work with Walter, you are lucky! Not only a great Realtor, but a stand up man!

    The best of the best! Walter helped me purchase a new home in Sarasota. He negotiated a great deal for me with the builder, and even sat with me for hours in the design center to help me pick out all of the finishes. He checked on my home every week while it was being built and sent me updated pictures along the way. If something didn't seem right, he caught it and had it corrected by the builder before the process moved too far along. I love my home and love Sarasota. I will gladly recommend Walter to anyone looking for a great real estate agent. I got lucky meeting him!

    Walter helped me and my friends purchase a beautiful villa in Gran Paradiso. It has always been my dream to move to Florida, and after a life of dreaming, Walter helped make it happen. He worked closely with me to help me understand the area, the taxes, and what I could expect. He was also very attentive on helping me get my home owner's insurance and utilities set up. I am so glad I decided to be represented when buying new construction, as I now know Walter was able to get me a way better deal than a lot of my neighbors paid by going straight to the builder's sales people. I know he is a top agent in Venice and wins Awards, and after working with him, I can see why. He is the BEST!!!!

    Walter Shepherd was fantastic to work with, he was professional at all times. We worked with Walter remotely from Canada in the beginning and he listened carefully to our needs and helped us identify potential properties that best met our needs. When we arrived in Venice, Walter was organized and had arranged viewings of the properties that we had prioritized. He has an excellent understanding of the local environment and his ability to answer all our questions gave of greater insights that helped us with the decision making process. We would definitely recommend Walter.

    Walter is a trustworthy and patient realtor and is an expert in the Sarasota/Venice marketplace. He walked me through my first home-buying experience. I never once felt pressured to make an offer on anything. He was always there to answer all of my questions with direct honesty and guided me every step of the way. When I found the right house, Walter went above and beyond to get that house for me! He made the offer with precision, detail, and expertise - explaining in detail all the information as to why we felt like our offer was fair and did it in such a convincing and professional way the sellers couldn't say no. So much so, he got me a gorgeous house WAY under the asking price. I was amazed at the hard work Walter put into my deal and how he was able to lock down the most comfortable price for me. That takes incredible dedication and talent. He took my concerns into major consideration when crafting the deal to make sure I felt ok. Walter is not just an excellent realtor, he is an incredible person who gives over 110% to every client he serves. He is truly a class act and really easy to communicate with throughout the buying process. You would be lucky to obtain him!

    Things happen for a reason, and I am so glad the winds shifted and brought you here to Venice. I am so excited we got you this house, and I can't wait for my invite to dinner to see how you have decorated everything! It really is the perfect house.

    Walter really made this happen. I saw the property listed on its first day in the morning. Walter got me in to see it that afternoon. That evening there were four full price offers. Walter worked his magic and the next morning he called to say that I got it. I couldn't be happier. I will definitely call him again for any real estate needs. The back story is that Walter showed us many properties before we found this one. He always returns calls promptly. He was always patient and willing to call on any property that interested us. He even helped us get set up to bid at an auction for one that we tried to buy. The auction didn't work out but Walter was right back at it, working with us until we got the one we wanted. Can't thank him enough for all he has done to help us find our home in Venice.

    Walter gave us personal attention. There wasn't anything he wasn't willing to do to help us sell our house. I felt that he always had our best interest in mind when he gave us his professional opinions. His attention made it easier for us while selling our house. Wonderful working with him. If I ever buy or sell another he will be the only person to call.

    Thank you Carol for your kind words. It was a joy to work with your daughter and son-in-law a few years back on selling their land, and to have the chance to work with you and Dan was just as rewarding. I know you are going to love living so close to the grandkids, and I wish you all the best! I can't wait to see pictures of the before and after of the remodel. Thank you for trusting me in the process, and for also being a wonderful neighbor and friend!

    Walter is an amazing realtor. I interviewed other realtors prior to listing with him. Although others were competent, he seemed to rise above in his competence, attention to details and his genuine kindness. The right location and resale value have always been of my primary concern when relocating. Therefore, my homes have always sold quickly. However,Walter presented me with multiple offers after the first day of showing. One hour after public listing there were two showings. I signed with one of them. Walter literally sold my home in one hour! After an offer was accepted, Walter did not stop working. He was there every step of the way up through the final closing. I have no hesitation on highly recommending Walter. Finally, I must state that The Good Lord's help was with us throughout.

    Walter is a true professional. I have worked with Walter now on three different home purchases and he has sold two of my properties. I couldn't be happier with Walter and would recommend him to everyone I know. Walter goes the extra mile and that means the world to me and my wife as we live in NY and were not around full time. Walter made us feel comfortable in all our decisions and walked us through the entire process. He goes above and beyond any realtor I have ever worked with. Happy to have had him on our team and will always reach out in the future if we look to buy/sell again. Thank You Walter!!!

    Walter Shepherd is perhaps one of the best realtors I have ever worked with. He was very knowledgeable of the product, the area, had answers to all of our questions, which some other "open house" realtors couldn't answer. Walter is also very personable, does not rush you through, and helped us along with every step until completion of the purchase. I would highly recommend Walter to anyone looking for real estate in his area.

    We began working with Walter long distance from Ohio mid 2018 to find a new home in the Venice area. I talked with him on the phone many times and he gave us a review of all the new communities in West Villages area and recommended a few that would meet our requirements. We came down for a Month in January 2019 and Walter spent several days showing us the various communities,amenities and floor plans. We fell in love with Sarasota National and ended up purchasing a new home in that community at a great price. We have been here for several months now and have found that with Walters guidance and the information he provided us that we made the correct choice. Walter is very professional, knowledgeable and a wonderful and kind person. He is not pushy and wants his clients to be happy no matter how long the process takes. Anyone who chooses Walter as their real estate agent will be extremely pleased.
