For real estate agent Marshall Walker, of The MarshallWalker.com Group, Inc., a typical day can involve anything from selling homes to running meetings to...mowing lawns?
"It's important to take care of details, even the ones that you don't normally see real estate agents taking care of," Walker says. "One Sunday, a buyer client pulled up to his new home in a moving van and found me mowing the lawn! I just wanted the new owner to be happy."
Walker began serving people long before he entered the real estate business. He was an auto mechanic specializing in Rolls Royce and Bentley motorcars for 18 years, until arthritis forced him to switch careers. After being involved with several real estate transactions, he decided that a career in real estate might be just what he needed. And with that thought in mind, he started in November 2003 and rapidly developed one of Charleston's premier property Web sites.
Always thinking outside the box is what sets Marshall Walker apart from the typical real estate broker. He has renovated a gas station near Hampton Park into an Internet café and sales office, Walker has turned a vision into a reality.
"In 2005, I was in London and visited a real estate office that operated within an Internet café," Walker says. "Today I've completed the environmental cleanup and renovation of an old gas station to ultimately house a neighborhood gathering space and real estate office where people can come hang out, search the Internet for homes, and visit with our sales staff."
"In spite of the negative media, the real estate market is alive," Walker says. "We are investing heavily in expanding our business and growing our team despite the market."
In addition to his residential activities, Walker and his team have produced a relocation package and booklet as part of his corporate services division that is now a growing segment of his company.
This new division is introducing itself to area businesses to help with their employees real estate needs. Businesses receive a custom benefits package that offers lender incentives, an attorney and a home warranty package at no cost to the employee or employer.
In addition to the relocation team Walker has also created a "loss Mitigation" team of agents certified in Short sales and foreclosures. "This is a large part of the market" Walker says "When I started seeing our friends and nieghbors losing homes I decided it was time to get involved, get certified and start trying to help homeowners either keep thier home through stimulus loans, protect equity in the foreclosure if they have any, and help them protect their credits as well as they can." Much of this help comes in the form of directing homeowners to the appropriate legal or tax advisors.
"Staying ahead of the technology curve is the difficult part" Walker says " with our new office we have started at the ground level incorporating cloud computing technolgy - this way we will always be agile enough to provide the services one will come to expect from a Full Service Real Estate Brokerage"
