"I am thrilled that Walter worked with me."
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Walter Burns. In this tough housing environment, Walter arrived to my home with comparables and data that would help me make a decision about pricing and staging my home. He was not only professional but thorough- explaining me through the process and what he would do. Given the amount of real estate for sale in Hoboken, Walter also walked me through his aggressive marketing campaign for my home- this included taking professional color photos, providing glossy brochures, and utilizing multiple websites to advertise the property. He also kicked things off with an open house out of the gate. The property sold within 3 weeks of being listed with Walter - for a great price- netting a generous profit to me- and with multiple offers. After interviewing a few realtors in Hoboken from various agencies, who suggested I list my property much lower - without providing comparables, etc- and no mention of any marketing campaign, I am thrilled that Walter worked with me.
"Walter helped me stay positive"
I just completed the purchase of a new condo in Hudson County. As a first time home buyer looking to take advantage of the soft real estate market, I did not know that the purchase process would take me through a 5 month long roller coaster ride. Fortunately, I had Walter as my agent and guiding hand from start to finish. Walter was there to patiently help me find the condo that I was looking for. He was also there to support me through a lengthy and difficult loan process. Walter helped me stay positive during all the complications, and played an important role in finding the resources that made this purchase a possibility for me. His knowledge of the real estate market and genuine concern for his clients’ interests are a rare combination of qualities. I would gladly recommend Walter to anyone, and look forward to working with him again in the future.
"Such A Great Experience"
I had such a great experience working with Walter and I really want to recommend his services to any potential home buyers. We were still searching for a property to buy towards the last week leading to 4/30, in order to qualify for the tax credit. I contacted Walter on my requirements and he responded really quickly with a list of properties which met all the criteria I wanted. When I contacted him to view the properties , he would always try his best to make the viewing appointments and get back to me as soon as he can. He understands your needs and gives great advice while we are shopping for the properties. The communication is always there and his fast response to any requests definitely helped me successfully sign a contract prior to 4/30 to qualify for the tax credit. After signing the contract, Walter continues to take care of us by calling to followup at least once a week to check on the closing process. (This is unlike other agents - my bf closed with another agent and after he signed the contract, he never heard from her again nor did she recommend the required individuals to close. My bf had to find out the information through me as Walter always had me covered.) He is very resourceful and understands the closing process and is always a step ahead. Eg. once he knew that our loan is at the final processor, he had the homeowners' insurance contact me since he knew this is definitely a condition to close on the property. Whenever I encounter obstacles in the closing process, I would go to him and I always have the assurance and peace of mind that he has great advice and is always ready and prompt to help me figure out a solution or speaking/directing me to someone who can help me. This is important as I have a busy traveling/work schedule. He is honest and very pleasant to work with and is always with me every step of the process. I am very happy with Walter's services and definitely will use his services again. I also highly recommend him to my friends or any potential home buyers whom are looking to buy/sell a property.
Walter, Thank you for your assistance with our purchase,. You were very nice to work with and very knowledgeable!
"Exceeded Our Expectations"
Thanks again for helping us find the perfect condo. You definitely exceeded our expectations, and were there for us every step of the way. Not only were you were professional, courteous and patient, but you were always available if we had any questions or concerns. Equally important, your knowledge of the Jersey City real estate market was unparalleled; your excellent and well-maintained website is an example of what sets you apart from other real estate agents.
We hope to work with you again in the future.
"Walter Was Extremely Patient"
At 26 years old, I never believed I would be able to afford to buy a condo. I thought the market was either too high or what I could afford, wouldn't be worthwhile to buy. Walter was extremely patient and was willing to search for as many condos as I needed to find what I like, or even for me to see what's available. After searching for a few weeks, Walter finally found me the perfect apartment. He explained the whole process very well, providing timetables for when I needed to do everything and was always there to listen and advise if I had any problems. Walter was the perfect Realtor. He truly does understand both buyer and seller needs.
"Tremendously Helpful and Patient"
I decided to work with Walter because of his knowledge and experience in the real estate market along with his concern for my needs and what I was looking for. As a first time buyer, I felt I was making informed decisions and never felt rushed which was reassuring and something I was not experiencing with previous realtors. He was tremendously helpful and patient with me during these difficult market conditions and always made himself available to address my questions/concerns from the beginning of the process until I closed. It was a pleasure working with Walter and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
"Thank You For Your Courtesy"
Just wanted to drop a few lines to thank you for your courtesy and efficient service while I was selling my home. You made it pleasant and calm . I know I drove you crazy sometimes, but you never lost patience with me. Thank you very much. I would recommend you to anyone I know about to sell or buy.
"We Have Been Extremely Happy"
We had never bought a Hoboken condo before and were very specific in what we were looking for. Walter found it for us on our very first showing and we bought the condo that day in a multiple bidding situation! He helped guide us through the entire process from initial offer to home inspection to closing and we have been extremely happy in our home! We highly recommend Walter!
"A Wealth of Knowledge"
I used Walter to buy an investment property in Jersey City and found he possessed a wealth of knowledge about the local and national real estate market. I would highly recommend you contact Walter if you are thinking about an investment property or residence.
"An Absolute Pleasure"
It was overall an absolute pleasure to deal with Walter. He is fantastic at organization, follow-up, and communication. He guided us through an incredibly stressful period in our lives. We are very happy.
"Understanding, Considerate, and Very Supportive"
As a first time home buyer who was hesitant to leave Manhattan, Walter was understanding, considerate, and very supportive. He listened very well to my interests in a search and made me feel like we were working for a common goal. Walter never hesitated to answer my questions. His positive focus and concern for my interests were genuine. This is a rare quality. I confidently recommend Walter.
"Diligent and Entrepreneurial Spirit"
"After we lost a home in Willow Terrace to a bidding war, Walter proactively approached owners in the neighborhood who were interested in selling, but had not yet listed their home on the market. Due to Walter’s diligence and entrepreneurial spirit, we are the proud owners of a home in Hoboken. I would use Walter again and have recommended him to numerous friends."
I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did in selling my condo. Your expertise and professionalism was greatly appreciated. I would gladly recommend you to any perspective buyers or sellers that I may come in contact with. It was great working with you.
"A Very Big Thank You"
A very big thank you, Walter. Thanks to your professionalism, resilience, and dedication, we were able to rent our apartment. We will definitly continue using your services in the future.
"It Was A Pleasure Working With You"
Just writing to say thank you again for your assistance in buying our home! It was a pleasure working with you. Hope you had a great holiday and have a wonderful New Year!
