The Vorhies, Mint Hill NC
John acted as my buyer's agent to help me purchase this home and I highly recommend him to other buyers. Having spent his whole life here, John has deep and relevant knowledge of the Charlotte market that guided my decisions. He was able to walk me through every step of the process and help me stay a few steps ahead of the game. John also introduced me to the partners I needed to complete my purchase. John's mission was helping me make the right purchase for me and my goals. He was patient and helpful and I would not hesitate to use him in the future.
Mr. Schmidt, Waxhaw NC
My wife and I are new to the Charlotte area. We started working with John months before we had even moved down here and from day one he was always super responsive and helpful while never at any point pushy. John was also extremely patient with us and would give us honest feedback on homes because he was not just trying to get us into a home, he wanted to make sure we were making the best decision. We really appreciated all his time and assistance throughout the whole process. He made sure to walk us through every step of the closing and explain any areas we didn’t understand along the way. Overall, we would highly recommend others to use John Walker for any future home purchase.

Only five stars? My partner and I give him ten! Greg describes John as a true pro - a realtor who is proactive in helping his clients both find the home of their dreams and then negotiate and navigate the complicated process of acquiring it. What impressed me most was his willingness to listen, to take time to both understand our lifestyle and taste and then help us hone our wish list into what would ultimately translate into the perfect home in the perfect location at the price we wanted to pay. Because I am new to Charlotte, he spent a great deal of time showing me the relative strengths and drawbacks to specific neighborhoods, drawing on both his years in real estate and his status as a Charlotte native. I truly felt he had our backs every step of the way, not the least of which included keeping me from making a I-want-it-gotta-have-it-right-now-even-if-it's-wrong decision! John knows real estate, but he also knows people - especially his clients!
The Osengas, Charlotte NC
John is a knowledgeable and attentive agent who worked hard to get us a house in Charlotte that fit our needs. He is really the perfect agent because he did not pressure us at all, but would respond to our questions and requests right away. He really listened to what we wanted and helped us to find a house that we love. He has a good attention to detail and was able to help us to understand what could have been a complicated process. He was also happy to provide us with recommendations for other people that we needed in this process (such as an inspector and mortgage lender) who worked out great. We really think John is a wonderful agent and would happily recommend him to anyone!
The Larson Family, Mooresville NC
John was wonderful to work with. We relocated from another state and were not familiar with the area at all. We were 100% confident and comfortable with John during the entire process. If you're looking for a Charlotte agent, John Walker is the one!
The Robinson Family, Charlotte NC
John Walker was extremely helpful to me during my recent search and purchase of my new home. John was always available by e-mail and/or phone and responded quickly to any question I had. Being from out of state made things a little more complicated during the purchasing procedure, but John was there to help me every step of the way! John has a good knowledge of the Charlotte area and is great to work with. I HIGHLY recommend him for all of your real estate needs.
The Burkes, Harrisburg NC
John was not only extremely professional but so personable as well. We are so thankful for all of his help. This was a difficult time because of the loss of our dad but John made this as easy of a process as it could have been. We now consider him a friend as well as an agent. We are blessed to have found him!
The Ward Family, Mint Hill NC
John helped us in every phase of selling one home and buying another - from deciding if this was the right time for us to sell, to helping us choose the right area and house, to the mortgage/insuring and finally moving phase. He was extremely energetic and focused on getting us what we wanted, and always seemed available to answer our questions and research the few things he didn't already know. I cannot recommend him highly enough!
Denis and Martha, Charlotte NC
John was fantastic! He helped us every step of the way to find and buy our dream house. From the beginning of our preliminary search to closing the deal he was always there for us. We were relocating from out of state and John did an excellent job of familiarizing us with Charlotte. He knows every neighborhood here. I liked that John always spent just as much time explaining things to me as he did my husband. He was great with our kids, very kind and patient. John made our home search very enjoyable. When we found our house John was excellent in helping us make our offer and negotiations. He is very thorough and on top of things. He spent a lot of time with us to guide us through the home buying process. From beginning to end we couldn't be more pleased with John's services.
The Palmer Family, Charlotte NC
Our experience working with John Walker was most positive. His knowledge of the house buying process as well as his quick friendly responsiveness made our first home purchase experience awesome. He made himself easliy accessible and made every effort to explain the process with great detail which boosted our comfort level with him as well as the entire house buying procedure. He was absolutely great to work with in every way and we would recommend John to anyone we know who is looking to buy a home. He is extremely personable as well as a true master of his field.
