My wife and I are moved to write this letter in appreciation to our Real Estate agent Walter Wallace.
Recently our dear mother had passed away and we were tasked with having to part with the family home in Scarborough. There were many fond memories surrounding us in this house that we couldn't quite give up and the thought of having to deal with real estate and all the others issues that present themselves when leaving memories behind. This was very overwhelming for us.
Through a friend, we were introduced to Walter Wallace. From the moment we met him he was respectful of our concerns. He treated us with respect and dignity from the outset. He told us clearly and precisely what each step in the process was going to be so that we both understood completely.
My wife was not well during the sale period and he went out of his way to accommodate us by driving to wherever we asked him to complete paperwork etc. He acted in a very professional manner and at the same time making us feel like he was a close friend who was acting in our best interests.
When it came time to actually sell the house we were well informed and confident in what we were in for. This was all from Walter's assurance. There were houses in the area that had signs on the lawns for several weeks but he told us that we had a beautiful house and that we should just wait and see what happens. He was very confident in knowing that our house would sell.
Our house was sold in six days from the day it was listed for above market value. We couldn't have been happier. It was amazing!
From my wife and I, "Thank you Walter!". You made our experience a stress-free pleasant experience.

Walter was our buyer's agent when we purchased our first home, and then, several years later, we asked Walter to sell the same home so that we could follow our dreams and move across country. This was possibly the smartest thing we could have done.
We couldn't have been happier with the service that Walter provided. What could have been an incredibly stressful experience was seamless. Walter held our hands through the entire sales process, answering our questions and providing expert guidance. When our house sold above asking with the closing date that we wanted, we literally did a happy dance.
Walter's expertise and uncompromising professionalism made the process of selling our house simple and we have been gushing to all of our friends about our rockstar realtor ever since. Thanks, Walter!

Walter. I just wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work and passion in helping to find a property in down town Toronto. Your knowledge of the market and your patience were very much appreciated. Your desire to service our needs was tremendous from start to finish. You also proved yourself very worthy and very competent when it came time to negotiate. Thank you. Your service level was above and beyond expectations. Walter, I look forward to working with you in the future.
Walter sold our first condo. His marketing strategy resulted in more viewings than I could count and multiple offers. Because of Walter, my sister and I got a great price for our place. I was very impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and dedication. He was always on time and gave us his full attention. It was so great to work with an honest agent who obviously loves his job.
We were so happy with Walter's services. When we met him he took the time to figure out who we were and what kind of home best suited our needs! Although we initially thought that we were interested in condo living we quickly discovered through Walter's patience and efforts that we had so many more options open to us.
Walter was always ready at a moments notice to accommodate any and all viewings we were interested in, and when he sent us a listing for a new freehold townhome we quickly met and saw what is now our perfect home! with our dream kitchen!
Walter walked us through the entire process and guided us with his wisdom and knowledge. We would highly recommend his services to anyone who is dreaming of home ownership...he has a no pressure, calming business approach that has all the right qualities to instill trust and security in one of the biggest decision making processes in your life, finding the place to call home!
Thanks so much for all you have done for us Walter, you are the best!
Happy Home Owners Melissa and Russell
As first time buyers we couldn’t have navigated this huge step in our lives without Walter. Keeping both our interests in mind Walter took the time to make sure that we found the home that best suited us. His patience, humor and understanding of our needs made us feel confident and overjoyed with the biggest purchase of our lives.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Walter’s services to any of our friends or family.
Thanks for everything Walter:

I finally purchased my first home. Taking on this challenge alone, combined with shopping the Toronto housing market, can be overwhelming.
I asked Walter Wallace to be my real estate agent and I'm glad I did. Walter listened to what I said I wanted in a house and he didn't make assumptions. He knew what items were most important to me in my search and he never lost sight of them.
Moreover, when I decided to really intensify my search, Walter was there every minute responding to my text messages and answering my phone calls. He made me feel confident because I knew the instant I was ready to make a move towards a home purchase, Walter would be a step ahead and ready.
Walter also helped me tremendously with all those other challenges that exist for first time buyers such as where to go and what to do for setting up a first mortgage.
Walter was a great help back when I bought my first home last year and he's still a great help today as he's always available to answer questions or recommend someone for that renovation I'm now working on!
Thanks Walter, you made buying a house a little less scary.
We are writing to express our gratitude for your work on the recent sale of our house in East York. The level of service you provided throughout the process far surpassed anything we had experienced from the many agents we have used in past.
The time and attention you paid to us and our home was greatly appreciated. Your advice on the presentation of our home saved us thousands on the staging of our house, your expertise in marketing the house resulted in multiple offers within the short week that our home was for sale, and your handling of the negotiations resulted in a selling price significantly higher than we had expected.
We have already recommended you to our neighbours and will be sure to call you again should we return to the Toronto area.

I would like to thank Walter for the amazing service he provided us when we were looking for a home. He went above and beyond to ensure that we found a house in the area we wanted. Walter went as far as walking the neighborhood and placing flyers in mailboxes informing possible sellers that we were interested in purchasing in the neighborhood. I would definitely recommend Walter to my friends, family and colleagues. Thank you for your dedication, we are truly grateful.
