- Austin W. Experience.com verified costumer

Port Orchard, WA
Nov 9, 2021

The two biggest stresses we had during our home buying process were lender driven, the first relatively minor, was a last minute change in the type of loan, the second and most negative was a delay in our closing driven by the lender’s inability to process paperwork in a timely fashion. This caused us to have to pay more money and reschedule our move... communication during this time from Walt was sparse, and we didn’t really have forewarning that this could happen until the day it fell through.

The care and detail your team gave us was top notch. Every member was very helpful and answered every question we had throughout this process. As first time buyers, we never worried about “ what’s next” or those surprise little taskers needing a signature or eyes on ASAP because Walt and his team of professionals were on it! They really care for their client/s and that says a lot especially during a time where buyers need to be in the know and they definitely do that and more! Thanks so much!

I know we aren't the only customers of Walt's team. But it was sometimes difficult to get timely answers to questions. The case that sticks out most in my mind is getting the email about the house being manufactured, which had been previously overlooked. The email said to contact the team to discuss next steps, which we tried to do, at multiple numbers, but no member of the team was available to answer our calls. We did, eventually, get a call back, and everything got straightened out.

Walt and his team made our buying process as first time home buyers smooth and simple! Their communication through the entire process was superb. They answered all of our questions and inquiries on properties promptly and honestly. Once we found our dream house they helped us put everything together and be prepared for any and all hurdles that might come our way. We thought this difficult buyers market might make our dreams impossible, but with the help of Walt and his team we achieved it!!

You need to add adjectives like Phenomenal, Great is not enough. The reason the service was so amazing Walt did everything before I had questions on what the next process was.Additionally , he's a team player and just works seamlessly with everyone on his team. Mainly he made the act of financing a house feel like you are being helped by a caring family member. If you aren't having Walt get you a loan, quit it and call Walt. He is the dude.
