"Walter Shepherd was exceptional in his service and knowledge."
"I feel he went above and beyond. Walter was exceptional, on target at all times, receptive, prompt, excellent communication skills."
"I am new to the area. I have no connections here, but Walter provided help with everything... referrals, inspections, and estimates. Walter Shepherd was incredibly helpful in every aspect. He assisted me with two unsuccessful offers due to issues revealed by the inspections, before we got to a completed sale, and he stood by me... always maintaining his positive outlook."
"Walter was amazing and very pleasant to work with on our new home."
"Walter helped to coordinate the pick up of auctioned items and the returning of items to us and the cable company. His assistance made the sale of the property easy. We will definitely call him in the future if the situation arises to purchase property in the area. Our listing agent, Walter Shepherd, was outstanding in every aspect of marketing the property and the closing. He was very prompt in returning phone calls and e-mails."
"Walter Shepherd treated everyone with respect throughout the process. He pays very close attention to details and follows through each and every time. We were totally pleased with his service and we will definitely use him in the future. Walter is a very professional agent who has the ability to be both personable and professional. We were completely satisfied with all aspects of our experience. He was very thorough in answering all of our questions and if needed to follow up on an issue, he always got answers without any nudging from us. Coldwell Banker is lucky to have Walter as one of your agents."
"Walter was very informative and helpful thru the entire purchase process... first class service. Thank you!!!"
Jack & Jessica G
"Walter Shepherd went above and beyond throughout the entire process. From showing us homes and properties to guiding us through the closing. We completed most of this process long distance and never had a concern because Walter was so thorough and knowledgable. We will recommend him to anyone we know that is looking for a home in the area."
"Walter did a super job getting us through some unseen problems for closing."
"Walter goes above and beyond expectations. We used Walter to sell our previous home and he did a wonderful job, so it was very easy to decide whom we would use to sell my mother-in-law's home. Walter always provided information to us in a timely manner. He suggested several things that would make the home shine and he researched the HOA guidelines to avoid any problems. He absolutely takes care of everything and makes it so very easy."
"We have so little experience buying real estate and had NO experience selling. Walter gave us great advice, stayed in touch with us, and made sure we got as much of our buying cost back as the market would allow. He was also watching out for our bottom line with fees. I couldn't have asked for a better partner in this venture. I know it is difficult to sell undeveloped land and Walter was so helpful in advising us on asking price and how to handle the comps."
J.J A & Suzette S
"Walter Shepherd is very sincere, resourceful, and has client as first priority. We have actually already recommended him to some others. He goes well above and beyond all expectations. Excellent coordination with all phases from sale to closing."
"I will never do business with but Walter, and my husband says that he has "spoiled us for any other agent." He is truly a treasure. Walter is the best agent that me or my husband has ever used. I've used agents in Rochester, NY; San Diego; and Fayetteville, AR and he is the absolute best. He's detailed, highly organized, hard working, and personable. He made our home buying experience wonderful, despite difficulties (that he handles beautifully) with an offer we placed. He was available continuously throughout our trip to Venice from Arkansas and succeeded getting us our perfect house before we flew home."
Michael & Joyce S
"Walter Shepherd was exceptional. He answered every question and after the transaction, even our buyers wish they would have had him. He is your very best of the best, and I have had many. He worked day and night and every weekend until the property was sold!"

"Walter was the best."
Jim & Marge M
"Walter was instrumental in selling our home, as we live out of state and he was always willing to help. Walter was exceptional. He was professional, well organized, and thoughtful about our requests."
"Walter went over and beyond and expectation we have ever experienced. He responded to us immediately, explained everything in great detail, was extremely professional, and even helped calm us down throughout the whole process. You have a winner here in Walter!"
"Walter Shepherd showed me many properties. All of them were wonderful properties. He assured me the transaction would go very smoothly and it did!"
"Walter did a great job photographing our condo and writing up descriptions to post online. Almost made me wonder why we were selling the place!"
"Walter is a true professional. He knows customer service. He never dropped the ball with us. Very knowledgeable and have already given his name to some friends that are looking to join us in Florida. Good man!!!"
Joe & Jeanne M
"My wife and I just can't say enough about how helpful Mr. Shepherd was throughout the process. If and when the time comes for us to need a Realtor's service, he will definitely have the opportunity to work with us. Walter Shepherd provided excellent service for us at every opportunity during this transaction. Being home in NJ for the closing and for obtaining insurance I felt very confident in following Mr. Shepherd's advice in all matters related to the purchase on our new home. He also has been quite helpful since the closing with offering to on occasion inspect the house until the next time we are there."
Jean & Larry K
"Walter made the entire experience very easy. He kept us informed and was in contact with us often. We could not have asked for a better agent than Walter. He is very personable, very knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Most certainly he is an asset to Coldwell Banker. Many thanks to Walter for everything he did for us."
Deborah & Bernie M
"Walter was outstanding. Was honest in all aspects & always kept us up to date on showings and feedback from prospects & other agents. He also gave some helpful ideas on how to present our home. Returned all of our calls promptly & always had answers to any questions or concerns we may have had. We've done a lot of buying & selling & he was one of our favorite Realtors."
"Walter Shepherd was very professional and very helpful in navigating a home purchase from 1500 miles away. My wife and I live full time in Massachusetts, so Walter handled every little detail for us and made this whole experience a very positive experience. He is first class and knows his business very well."

We are a UK based entity and Walter was very communicative in explaining the selling process in the US which we were not familiar with - this was a great help and much appreciated! Walter was very helpful throughout the whole process and assisted where it was required.
Working with Walter is exactly the experience you would want in a realtor. He listened to my needs, he is knowledgeable and was able to provide general and specific information about the area and various communities and gave me the space I needed to explore. As I narrowed in on a property, he was always available often responding within minutes of my requests. He answered my questions clearly and in a way that gained my trust as it was clear he was working to get me into the right home for me not just sell a house. I would recommend him without hesitation.
***** BEST REALTOR EVER!!! *****
Walter has been our agent for 2 home purchases & 2 home sales in the Sarasota area in the past 2 years.
He is far & away the best real estate professional we have EVER worked with in our 8 different home purchases over 30 years!!!!
Walter carefully assessed our needs, and did a great job presenting potential properties. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market & an excellent negotiator, which ensured we paid a fair price, and received the very best price when he handled our sales.
He is extremely detailed, has the most impeccable follow-up, and always goes above and beyond in every situation!!
His great relationships with builders, escrow agents, key vendors and other service providers, made a huge difference in every one of our transactions.
If you want to buy or sell a property in the Sarasota / Venice / Bradenton area, Walter needs to be your next phone call!!!!
Walter went above and beyond. Especially during and after the hurricane. He personally went to check on our property which we hadn't even closed on yet. Closing was postponed due to the hurricane. We have had a lot of Realtors in our lifetime, and Walter was by far the best we have ever had. He was very knowledgeable about anything and everything.
