"We lucked into finding Chris and I'm sure glad we did. We met him at a showing. He's very professional and knows what he's doing but also down-to-earth and easy to work with. He did an amazing job negotiating on our behalf on our recent home purchase. We were looking for months and took up a lot of his time, but he was always there and ready. Very responsive with phone calls and texts. I'd highly recommend him."
-Dave and Chrissy Bird, Client
"I worked with Chris for more than 2 years, and he was wonderful throughout the entire process. My wife and I are very picky. We looked through dozens and dozens of homes before we finally found the house that was right for us. Chris is extremely responsive, but he's never pushy. He continually sent us homes to look at, and he was always available. I never once felt that he was bugged with our indecisiveness, even after we bailed on a property while we were in escrow. Chris is also very knowledgeable, and he negotiated well on our behalf. When we finally purchased a home, the process was smooth and easy, even though we purchased a bank-owned property (which can be a bit of nightmare). Perhaps most importantly, Chris is just a good, honest guy, and he genuinely cares about his clients. I will absolutely recommend him to others"
-Scott / Megan Tanner, Client
"Chris is extremely professional and knowledgeable with the local real estate market. He was able to handle the sale of our property quickly and with no delays. I would highly recommend Chris Walker to anyone in need of buying or selling a home."
-Steve & Janie Wood, Client
"We bought our home from Chris and it was a pleasure working with him. He was very knowledgeable about the area we wanted and diligently worked to find us exactly what we were looking for. I had very specific list and he found us exactly what we wanted. We are very happy in our home and glad we chose Chris as our agent. I would highly recommend him as a very professional agent Dan / Carolyn Copp - Client "
-Dan / Carolyn Copp, Client
"We met Chris at an open house and were so impressed that we decided to hire him for a condo we had in San Clemente. He was all over it, giving us great feedback and we sold it fairly quickly. We have had two other properties to sell since then. Chris again did an extensive walk thru with us on our home and made recommendations for us which we followed. Again, we were successful at selling this property. Recently we listed another home and Chris had multiple offers and a sale in two days. We would highly recommend Chris as we would use him if we were buying or selling any property in the San Clemente area"
-Ray & Linda Forgie, Client
"Chris helped my siblings and me sell our Moms house a few months after she passed away. With it being an emotional time for all, Chris handled every last detail with professionalism and integrity never failing to communicate with us every step of the way. Chris always had our best interest at heart and never hesitated to contact the buyers agent with any questions or concerns that we may have had. The entire process moved very smoothly with an honest and trustworthy approach along the way. I would absolutely recommend using Chris Walker to help you buy or sell your home. He will not let you down"
-Craig & Kelley Birminghan, Client
"Chris Walker sold my home in San Clemente last year. He was able to get me a full price offer within days of putting my house on the market. I have purchased and sold many homes over the years and my experience with Chris has been by far the best. Working with Chris was honestly like working with a family member. I was in a very difficult position where I was single and I worked in San Diego and traveled frequently for work. I was not available most of the time to set up showings or help with the open house. Chris coordinated all of my showings on his own and did every thing possible to ensure the house sold quickly. He is incredibly honest and fair and I would not hesitate to call him for my next home purchase or sale"
-Craig Gilbert, Client
"I highly recommend working with Chris Walker as your real estate agent. He will go over and beyond to help you find the perfect property you are hunting for. He is not only extremely knowledge with the market, but also with the process of handling the transaction from beginning to end. He is easy-going, trust-worthy & professional. He worked work hard with all parties involved to get me the best deal without any complications! Thanks Chris! My kids and I couldn't be more happy with our new home!!"
-Gina Kagan, Client
"It seems like so many realtors don't have the time for for you or don't have the expertise...Chris Walker not only invested his time with us but also hands down had the knowledge and expertise to exceed our expectations and get the job done. My husband and I were under a time crunch in selling our home. Chris took the initiative to aggressively market our home, negotiate on our behalf with winning results, all while acting with patience and integrity. It is a pleasure to recommend Chris Walker...a true professional."
-Richard & Cami Reid, Client
"Chris was very knowledgeable and responsive to our needs. We have actually worked with Chris on the sale and purchase of our last two homes and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again! His friendly, confident and calm demeanor help his clients get through the often hectic home sale and purchase processes. I highly recommend Chris Walker!"
-Dan & Debbie Carlson, Client
"Chris is an awesome Realtor. He is professional, personable, friendly and extremely competent. He delivers what he promises ... you can count on him. We would strongly and highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to purchase a home. Chris helped us find and purchase the house of our dreams. Although it was a long process because the house was a "Short Sale", Chris stayed with us through the whole process, keeping us informed of the progress every step of the way. He worked with us and the seller, the bank, the 2nd mortgage holder and he also helped us with our mortgage broker in helping us get our loan approved. Could not ask for anything more"
-John & Joan Angeli, Client
"Chris was amazing to work with. I believe we met Chris through an inquiry on a home we were looking at through Zillow and he reached out to us and gave us more attention than anybody else we talked with, and we worked with him ever since. He was very patient with us as we were on and off with looking for homes over almost a 2 year period. Over the time, Chris took the time to know what we really wanted and we ended up buying an amazing home. Since this was our first home purchase, he walked us through all the details we needed and gave us all the advice that was very helpful in our search and purchase. We would definitely recommend Chris and would work with him again if we are looking again."
-Hendrik & Trang Vo, Client
"Chris has tremendous local knowledge and was able to find us the perfect home before it even came on the market. He is diligent, honest and persistent without being pushy. He took the time to understand our needs and made sure the home was right for our family. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a house in 92673."
-Steve & Kendall Hops, Client
"We had been looking for a home for YEARS!! He was such a go-to-guy. We looked at several properties but none were "the one". Chris never gave up, he helped us to the point where we would have given up on us. Persistence pays and we eventually found ourselves in a beautiful home, in a beautiful, family friendly neighborhood. When we finally got into the process of buying this home, we were so happy to have such a knowledgeable person to guide us through all the ins and outs. I don't usually give 5 stars to anything, but I can easily do it in this case. Steve & Kelley"
-Steve and Kelley Bogusievitz, Client
"Chris was an excellent realtor and made our home buying process smooth and was a great help at every stage of the process. Chris has a great knowledge of the area we were looking at (San Clemente) and after talking with him about what we were looking for he knew right away what houses would be suitable for our family. Chris was honest with us about the houses we saw and knew great information about the neighborhoods the houses were located in. Once we found the house we liked Chris helped us with a strong offer package that ultimately got us our home. Chris was constantly in contact with us and was available at the drop of a hat to answer questions we had as we went through escrow. He would call lenders, realtors and anyone else we needed answers from on our behalf. Overall Chris made our home buying process an enjoyable and smooth ride. I would highly recommend him and will definitely use him in the future."
-Jeremy & Maya Nolan, Client
"Chris is very pleasant and professional. He listened well and also made some recommendations on what can improve the process and selling of the house. He is definitely experienced and efficient. I would highly recommend Chris Walker for your Real estate needs. I have already recommended him for my friends and family"
-David & Laila Murshidi, Client
"I highly recommend Chris as a real estate agent. I met Chris when I went to look at an open house. That house was not for me, but I ended up hiring Chris as my agent that day. Very easy to talk to and never any pressure. Plus, he knows Orange County like the back of his hand. He is very intuitive and super easy to work with. He rolled with all of my shenanigans and made the entire process painless (not just finding the house, but the loan process as well - ugh, the loan process is stressful, but Chris was always so positive) Chris helped me find my dream house - it was the third house he showed me. He knew exactly what I wanted and delivered exactly what I wanted. He didn’t waste my time showing me houses that did not match my criteria. If I ever sell my house, I will definitely use Chris as my listing agent and I am positive he will help me find another dream home"
-Tony & Stacy Previte, Client
"Chris was very professional and knowledgeable of the homes and the availability in the location that we were looking.

I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home."

He made our family dream home a reality and we will be forever grateful."
-Casey & Liz Swenson, Client
"Chris Walker was amazingly helpful, responsive, and genuinely cared about us as we went through several tough experiences in finding a new home. We ended up getting the home of our dreams for less than we expected and sold our home for more than we expected. I could not recommend him and the first class services of Chris Walker highly enough. The whole experience working with them was better than we could have imagined"
-Casey & Liz Swenson, Client
"The team at Walker Real Estate group is 100% professional and courteous. My husband and I closed on our first home ahead of schedule due to their top-notch service and expertise.

Our agent Chris Walker was friendly, responsive and helped us each step of the way. They made the process so easy and stress free. Thanks again guys!!"

"Chris Walker was an outstanding agent to work with- moving from San Francisco to Orange County was not an easy decision and the criteria I had for a home in San Clemente was a tall order- Chris really listened to me and what I was looking for and didn't waste my time showing me properties that I wouldn't like. Chris managed to find me a home that I could not dream I would get, that had everything on my list and then some (and still remain within a modest budget)- it was a competitive bid process and we were successful which really speaks volumes to his understanding of the process, the area and ultimately even the negotiating party. I would highly recommend him"

-Josh & Heather Hodosh, Client
"We had no knowledge of Orange County, let alone the San Clemente community. Chris Walker went above and beyond finding a home for my family. As an agent for Surterre Properties, he did an amazing job! The market is booming in Orange County and we must have looked at dozens and dozens of homes before finding “the one”. Chris was able to show us homes the minute they went on the market (from San Clemente to Laguna Hills). He was professional, attentive and walked us through each step with ease. His market knowledge allowed him to negotiate a great price for our new home in San Clemente! "
-Javier & Amanda Iglesias, Client

They are very good about realistically setting expectations and they were excellent at reading other agents throughout the process.

Chris was always reachable and was good about bringing his team into situations that required additional assistance"
