"This is the third home we have purchased, this being the first home purchased after relocating, and we have never had such a pleasant home buying experience. Vince knows a great deal about the local area to include schools, crime statistics, and resaleability which was a great comfort when looking to buy a home and being new to the area. We love everything about our home and don’t know if we could have found such a perfect fit without the help of Vince.
I truly have never met a more genuinely kind person in my life. We had no choice but to bring our young child with us to meetings and showings and he welcomed him with open arms and took care of us like family."

"My husband is not a 1st time home buyer, but I was, Vince was great to me throughout the whole house selling/buying ordeal."
Stacie Schulz (Buyer) Tue, 19 Jun 2018 01:13:32 +1000
"Vince is a wonderful agent and made this buying experience the best I've ever had. I could not have asked for a better agent. He went above and beyond to help me find the perfect home. He's amazing at what he does."
Kasie Taulbert, Kansas City (Buyer) Fri, 08 Jun 2018 04:36:48 +1000
"Vince was the most amazing realtor you could ask for. Very knowledgeable as it was my first time buying a home he pointed out items I would have over looked. He made me aware of so much and really taught me how to find the perfect home. We went to so many open houses and to look at so many homes the market was very hot and he never complained about how many houses I wanted to go see. He went above and beyond in every sense to make sure the perfect home at the perfect price was found for my daughter and I. I’d recommend him to anyone I know buying a home especially if it’s your first home. You will learn so much and come out with the perfect home. He will help make sure everything you need is done and follow up with you often to make sure you’re good even after the closing!"
Eleanore Kansas City (Buyer) Wed, 23 May 2018 03:32:28 +1000
"We were already recommending Vince to friends and family before we bought the house. Being first time buyers we weren’t sure what to expect and the task was daunting but Vince made it surprisingly easy and understandable. Vince provided informed opinions to helps us make informed decisions and would support the decisions we made. Overall a great experience."
i. Phillips Overland Park (Buyer) Sun, 06 May 2018 09:59:50 +1000
"My husband and I have been in the process of looking and buying a house for what seems like forever. But as soon as Vince got us in touch with his team things glided along nicely. Vince was always willing to go above and beyond for our family, including driving 50+ miles on a weekend to show us houses. I would highly recommend Vince Walk, he makes us feel like more then just "clients" for a business."
Blue Springs, MO (Buyer) Sat, 07 Apr 2018 23:18:58 +1000
"I put Vince through a lot but he always had a positive attitude. It was a long and hard road to find this house but we got it. There were a lot of fun times looking at houses in the freezing cold and Vince was right out there with us. He definitely did a great job of helping me get into my first home."
Justin Walston, Olathe (Buyer) Sat, 24 Mar 2018 10:33:24 +1000
"Vince was by far the BEST real estate agent I've ever used. He was so attentive to our needs and quick to answer any questions. I will never use another agent and highly recommend Vince Walk to anyone buying or selling."
Stephanie Maile, Tonganoxie (Buyer) Wed, 21 Mar 2018 07:14:35 +1000
"Vince Walk was a real pleasure to deal with. I felt confident knowing that he had our best interests at heart and not just his commission. He has a wealth of a knowledge and was able to educate us a lot on the home buying process.
Everyone always warns you about how overwhelming the process is, but I felt at ease knowing that Vince Walk was there and wasn't going to let things go sideways.
We really appreciated his ability to give us his honest opinion about different things as well, instead of just giving the easy answer. We ended up with a great home in a great neighborhood, and we couldn't have done it without Vince Walk!"
Hassan Al-Rubaie, Kansas City, MO (Buyer) Tue, 06 Mar 2018 09:00:22 +1000
"When we first met with Vince and his wife he was very friendly and helped walk us through the processes to come. After meeting with him, we felt like he knew what he was talking about, knew how to get us what we were looking for, and was willing to put in the time for us individually which all made us very comfortable with making him our choice. Looking back, we couldn't have made a better one."
Jamie Masculine, Kansas (Buyer) Sun, 21 Jan 2018 18:02:58 +1000
"I've known Vince Walk for many years and my personal knowledge of his care and concern for his colleagues and friends was the deciding factor in working with him.
I am a first time home buyer and initially I was nervous about the process. Vince went out of his way to make sure I understood the process as we went along and to just check in with me to let me know how things were going."
A. Cooper, Kansas City MO. (Buyer) Sun, 14 Jan 2018 05:53:29 +1000
"I originally found Vince through a neighbor, he had her house under contract in 2 days. I called him just to get some info and to see what he thought about selling my house. Once it was listed it was under contract in 5 days. He worked around the clock to take us to see whatever houses we were wanting to see and was very flexible in meeting us last minute if a new home listed we were interested in. We were having a hard time finding a home as not many were on the market. He was very patient and understanding what we wanted in a home and what budget we wanted to stay within. I absolutely loved working with Vince and would absolutely buy and sell with him again without a doubt!! He sold our home quick and found us a new home that met our wants and then some!"
Madison - Olathe (Buyer) Sat, 16 Dec 2017 08:28:07 +1000
"Vince spent a lot of time helping us find the right house for us. He worked as if we were his only client. He showed us many homes. He did some extra work and ended up finding us THE home. I would use Vince Walk for buying or selling a home again in a heartbeat. I would recommend him to anyone. We couldn’t be happier!"
Ethan Walston, Shawnee (Buyer) Sun, 26 Nov 2017 04:37:24 +1000
"We hadn't bought a house in nearly 40 years, so we needed a little catching up. Vince was there every step of the way and made the whole process comfortable.
Vince gave us tips to make our "sale" portion of the transaction go smoothly and stay on track, and he really kept his game face on during the "buy" portion, dealing with the seller in such a way that we maintained a cordial business relationship during negotiations with a beneficial outcome for us.
We consider Vince a friend and wish him every success."
Dave and Paula Burger, Lenexa, KS (Buyer) Fri, 17 Nov 2017 08:03:51 +1000
"Vince did a great job in both helping me sell my house and buy a new one. He is patient, knowledgeable and understands the current market. Vince was there for every step of the home buying process and addressed all of my concerns in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Vince if you want an experienced professional who can guide you through the home buying process and is always looking out for your best interests."

Lyn W. (Seller) Tue, 24 Oct 2017 11:23:22 +1000
"I knew Vince lived in my development and that he was on our HOA board. Dissatisfied with my previous agent, I called Vince to explore whether we could work together well. Working with Vince was a great improvement in every way over my experiences in past selling/buying; in fact, I've recommended him to family and friends and would work with Vince myself again, too!
I always felt Vince "had my back" and, although I knew I was not his only client, he was always available and focused on my transaction when we interacted. Vince's calm manner also serves him well in this business."
Bonnie Anderson, Shawnee (Buyer) Sat, 07 Oct 2017 03:25:52 +1000
"Excellent Communication. Always kept me in the loop. House sold far faster than I ever thought that it would have, three days. A friend told me about Vince and I decided to go with him, and I'm glad I did. It was an overall stress free and good experience. Great work Vince!!"
Billie Briggs, Excelsior Springs, Mo. (Seller) Tue, 03 Oct 2017 13:30:53 +1000
"Vince was always available to my questions and concerns. He went over and beyond trying to find me a home."

Charles and Jenelle Long, Kansas City, KS (Buyer) Sat, 30 Sep 2017 23:28:38 +1000
"Vince Walk is an excellent agent, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. I was a first-time home buyer, and he helped me through the whole process. He was educational, knowledgeable, friendly, always willing to go look at houses when it worked for my schedule, and had a great sense of humor - a plus in my book."
Stephanie, Mission, KS (Buyer) Sat, 30 Sep 2017 01:53:14 +1000
"Our story will sound like a fairy tale, but it is a concrete example of how selecting the right realtor can make a world of difference in the success in selling your home. In our opinion, Vince Walk is the right realtor.
My wife and I decided to sell our house this summer and travel the country in our RV. We first thought about trying the “For Sale by Owner” track, but after talking with Vince about the process and his informing us of what services he had to offer, we decided to list the house with him. We were impressed with three important factors. First, Vince listened to us, really listened. He addressed all our concerns and always responded in a timely manner. Second, he made sure all the services that he offered us were provided so we could optimize the sale of our home including a professional photographer who took fabulous photos inside and out of our home with great drone photos of the yard. Third, during the entire process we felt confident that Vince had our best interest in mind and would be our advocate.
The house went on the market on July 5, and now for the fairy tale…
We had eight scheduled showings within the first morning the house hit the MLS and an asking price offer that afternoon. We will have to include that our house was in great shape, a sought-after design, overlooked a green space with a large patio, and sat in a quiet cul-de-sac, so it had many positive attributes that helped with the quick sale. Our buyers were great and flexible, and we closed in just over six weeks post offer after sailing through the mechanical inspection and appraisal (knock, knock, knock on wood).
All these steps were expertly led by Vince, which significantly reduced our stress. There were a few situations that required negotiation and that is where Vince really shines. We swear it was like he was selling his own house. Deb and I have known Vince and his family for more than 25 years. Over the years I personally have watched him research his own decisions. I won’t say he squeezes nickels out of pennies, but it is close. Deb and I wholeheartedly recommend Vince and his team to sell your house or find your new home. We guarantee you will get his best."
Larry and Deb Larimore (Seller) Fri, 15 Sep 2017 06:54:36 +1000
"Vince set up a meeting with us to go over all information covering the selling of our house. He came well prepared and organized. He continued this same level of care and attention throughout our entire house selling/buying process.
Vince is incredibly organized, detailed, and efficient. He cares about his clients. This shows through with his communication and approachable manner. He made the house selling and buying process less stressful with his clear explanations and researched based knowledge. We will most certainly use Vince's services again and reccomend him to anyone looking for a new home! Thank you Vince!
All of the staff and Remax made our home buying/selling process easy and enjoyable!"
Tara and Dan Olathe, KS (Buyer) Tue, 25 Jul 2017 00:09:57 +1000
"Vince Walk is a very knowledgeable agent and also very easy to work with. He was endlessly patient, and very generous with his time- always willing to answer questions or concerns no matter the time of day.
In my situation I had a timeline to sell my house so that I could meet the deadline to purchase a new home. Obviously this can make for a stressful scenario - but Vince was the voice of calm and reason through it all and was always positive he could sell my house in the time frame needed. He did successfully sell my home and is now working with me on my new purchase.
I can't thank Vince enough for helping me through this process and for all the knowledge, helpful ideas and recommendations he made along the way."
Lindsay Santos, Shawnee KS (Seller) Fri, 21 Jul 2017 11:11:21 +1000
"Vince Walk came highly recommended from a friend. I looked at his reviews and record and was confident he would be a great realtor to sell my house. Our situation was somewhat unique, as I live four hours away from the Olathe KS house Vince was selling for me. He understood our situation and knew that the house needed to sell quickly. Just after we decided to sell the house, Vince reached out to me and stated he was eager to get started on the process.
Vince was always available to us during the entire process. He worked non-stop, even though my home was a smaller contract and only one of his many houses. Vince was quick to respond to emails, and was available by text or phone call at any time. He did a great job of explaining the process, and providing options. I trusted that Vince had the house sale under control at all times to the very end. It was common to get email's from Vince on weekends and evenings. He seemed like he never stopped working.
I had doubts about the price of the home and the ability for a quick sale. Vince re-assured me that the house would sell and came up with a great selling price. Vince worked with us and went the extra mile several times. His crew took professional pictures and created a great online listing. Vince sold the house in a matter of hours, and worked with us through the inspection, appraisal, and closing. He managed each issue that arose during the inspection and appraisal. He was always negotiating for us and ended up selling the house for more than asking!
I would recommend Vince to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. In my experience with buying and selling homes, Vince is by far the best realtor I've ever dealt with."
Brian and Erin Schnabel - South Dakota (house sold in Olathe KS) (Seller) Mon, 26 Jun 2017 23:28:58 +1000
"My family and I enjoyed having Vince as our realtor. His honesty and advice is what we appreciated the most. He went through our house with us and gave us solid advice that we followed to sell our house in three days. Then he worked with us on the purchase of our new house. He helped us through the process with experience that we relied upon. Vince always had time for us when we needed his assistance. Buying a house is a big deal, and you have to have someone you can trust to look out for your interest, Vince Walk was that person for us. Thanks for your help Vince!"
Robert and Sheri Anderson, Shawnee Kansas (Buyer) Mon, 26 Jun 2017 13:30:17 +1000
"Vince was very involved in the process and made us feel comfortable. We were confident he was acting in our best interests. He was always available and patient with us when we had questions and did a great job advocating for us throughout the entire process.
Vince was very approachable and easy to work with. He kept us informed every step of the process and was diligent in ensuring we closed on schedule. He was understanding and made sure all our questions were answered and we were comfortable with each decision.
He was understanding of our needs and helped us find the perfect home. He was practical and helped us make smart, educated decisions during the process.
We would definitely work with Vince again."
Sabrina, Overland Park, KS (Buyer) Mon, 08 May 2017 00:10:01 +1000
"Vince's attention to detail stood out from day one. Vince ultimately became our agent for both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new home. Vince came highly recommended from respected business associates. Our first visit came in our quest to find a buyer's agent in Shawnee - the area we sought to move into. In reviewing what our family desired in a new home, Vince immediately keyed in on our requests and was in a position to promptly take action when a property caught our attention.
The story of finding our new home is fascinating and it all came together not by mere circumstance or happenstance, rather because of Vince's experience; his ability to read people and his adept skills at quickly assessing a complex situation and knowing precisely how to advance his client's interests.
During our first visit in Vince's office, I reviewed with him what our family sought in a new home. We had not yet even begun marketing our existing home, but wanted to have that first conversation with a realtor to get a good understanding of our situation and the state of the existing market. In terms of a new home, we reviewed the desired location and all the other requisites: number of bedrooms, style, property size, etc...
After viewing several available homes online, I mentioned to Vince that, in order to provide him with the best existing example of what we sought, I could point him toward a home we had noticed was on the market about 18 months prior, but was no longer available. I pointed to the home on a map and and we found the old listing online. Public information showed the home had not changed hands during that prior listing; it was simply taken off the market. I thought little of this detail; I had simply wanted to show Vince the property as a strong exemplar of the location and type of property my family sought.
Vince had the idea of knocking on the door of that home simply to inquire of the owner if they were still interested in selling. I should also add this was occurring during the holidays in December. Approximately one week after our office visit, Vince was showing us the house. The next morning, on New Year's Eve, we returned for one more look at the property. While there, we learned a competing offer was being submitted that afternoon. We had a long conversation with Vince about the price the owner was asking, the current position of the home in the existing marketplace, and our own financial situation before arriving at what we believed to be a reasonable and competitive offer. Later that day, Vince conveyed our offer. Even the details of precisely how Vince conveyed our offer were compelling; his skill at reading a situation and the people involved - that skill alone proved his worth ten-fold in our situation.
Our family sat at home, nervously eating dinner and trying to ignore the clock. As if on queue, we received a call after dinner from Vince to learn our offer had been accepted. We have been on cloud nine ever since. Vince nailed it.
The realization quickly hit that we had perhaps put the cart before the horse in finding our dream home before having a contract to sell our existing home. With that in mind, and with our limited but promising experience with Vince over the previous couple of weeks, we immediately sought his assistance as our seller's agent. In the coming weeks, he worked diligently to advise us on preparing our home for sale and, following a comprehensive analysis of the area and market, he advised us on pricing our home right (given our various priorities) and expertly marketed. His pricing and marketing strategies spoke for themselves: we not only had multiple showings in the first few days of the listing, but we had multiple offers within 3 days of listing and a signed contract within the first week. We couldn't have been happier.
From the first visit, Vince had a clear grasp not only on our priorities in finding a new home, but also in our priorities in navigating the entire process - from a desire to lessen the disruption to our young children to a desire to not have our existing home languish on the market for weeks on end, Vince worked non-stop -- both behind the scenes and in communicating with us -- to keep us at ease and get the job done. I cannot sing his praises enough."
Jacob G,, Shawnee (Buyer) Mon, 10 Apr 2017 23:32:34 +1000
"I have known Vince Walk for 15 years as a friend and neighbor. I know he retired after 30 years of exemplary service as a public servant. I also know he is a man of faith who adheres to the teachings of Christianity. He has all the characteristics I was looking for in a realtor. He is patient, conscientious, accountable, knowledgeable; and most importantly a man I could trust. The homes he has listed in our neighborhood have sold quickly. He is not pushy or boastful, however, I know he has an impressive track record. I felt confident in Vince's abilities to sell my house. In addition,he is a nice guy who is fun to spend time with and has a great sense of humor.
From the very first time I contacted Vince about selling my home, he has been nothing less then exemplary. He is extremely responsive and client driven. He followed my lead when I was ready to sell. He explained each step in a way that did not overwhelm me. I knew I could trust him to look out for my interests. He is truly a man who wants to help people and who cares. He made the entire process easy and was extremely calm and reassuring. I was very impressed with his knowledge and people skills. He has a keen sense of people and how to get their cooperation. Selling a home can be unsettling and Vince always reassured me before getting to the point of his calls. He went the extra mile to help me through the entire process; providing comprehensive support and services. If I had a problem, Vince was always there to help.
Whenever I had a question Vince got right back with me no matter what time of day or night. I always felt that he treated my concerns as a priority, no matter how busy his schedule was. I had complete confidence in him and his knowledge and experience. He always offered excellent advice to protect me and my interests.
My experience was remarkable. The support I received from Vince was truly amazing. My husband and I were married for 34 years. Prior to his recent death we had sold several homes in the course of our marriage. This was the first time I sold a home solo. I felt that Vince backed me up the entire time and took care of everything I needed. I truly depended on him and he did not let me down. He was my lifesaver during this entire process. I can't say enough good things about Vince and what an important role he played in this process. He provided the comprehensive services and support I needed during what could have been a very stressful time. I have no hesitation about recommending Vince to others."
Gail Murray, Shawnee, KS (Seller) Thu, 06 Apr 2017 22:48:57 +1000
"Vince was able to read our situation well. Although we recognize all the variables at play (the market, pricing, how long we were willing to wait for a contract, etc...), our absolute priority in the sale of our home was a quick contract. We know we could have held out longer and hoped for a higher price, but our absolute priority was time. Vince recognized this priority and came through. He listened to our concerns, understood our anxieties, and kept us at ease throughout the process.
Vince nailed the marketing and sale of our property. He was constantly in contact; was responsive to all of our inquiries, and the bottom line is that we had multiple offers within the first few days of marketing the house.
Vince was proven correct time and again in the recommendations he made to us and the critical decisions we entrusted to him; we were under contract within four days at a price we were pleased with."
Jacob Gontesky, Tonganoxie (Seller) Thu, 06 Apr 2017 02:31:40 +1000
"When selecting a realtor, I insistent on working with someone who would communicate efficiently, quickly, and understood how to negotiate. Vince was always professional and his communication skills were excellent. We always knew where we stood with any aspect to the sale of our home. I cannot compliment Vince enough.
Vince was patient and professional the entire time. He always had our best interests at heart, and even when we had questions he was there to answer them."
Ethan Stover, Olathe KS (Seller) Wed, 29 Mar 2017 03:24:55 +1000
"Vince, I can't thank you enough, what was asked is what we received 100%...I honestly have not 1 bad thing nor a questionable thing about our final outcome, like I said 100% satisfied and DEFINITELY recommending you to anyone I associate with buying or selling a home,
Thank you so much"
Bobby Dahalic, KANSAS CITY, KS (Seller) Mon, 20 Feb 2017 12:05:35 +1000
"Vince was fantastic from the moment we were introduced. He is warm and welcoming manner which creates a wonderful home buying process. He carefully listened to our wants and needs and directed our search in a way that made it fun and easy. He has the patients of Jobe as I know my texts and calls would drive a less patient person crazy. He has an extensive list of vendors to assist in selecting mortgages to qualified contractors if needed. Vince Walk did everything in his power to be at the ready when I called for viewing or with questions or concerns. Once we selected our home he wasted no time in preparation of the contract, which allowed us to secure the home of our dreams. He stayed by our side during the mortgage process, inspection, and closing and after to make sure even our Home Warranty was in place. He is quick to respond to phone calls, texts and emails. Vince Walk is truly a DREAM Realtor!!
Vince Walk is a Dream Realtor that I will refer as often as possible!"
Jeff and Dorene Henderson, Kansas City Missouri (Buyer) Fri, 03 Feb 2017 08:51:13 +1000
"Vince was incredibly kind and patient as well as supportive and knowledgeable. He communicated every step of the way and truly felt like family throughout this process. I am excited to refer my friends and family to him because of his diligence in his work and because he's an all-around awesome guy!"
Kelsey Simmons, Strawberry Hill, KCK (Buyer) Thu, 12 Jan 2017 13:00:52 +1000
"All I can say is what a fantastic experience. Vince treated us like family and he was 100% available when we needed him. We were high maintenance as new home buyers and he never made us feel like we were bothering him. Vince listened to our every need and he took the time to explain certain things that we didn't understand. He never made us feel rushed or silly for asking a question that most people may already knew. I could not have asked for a better realtor. He would move as fast or as slow as we wanted. We felt like he really wanted to make us happy with the home that we chose and we are extremely happy!!
Vince really told us to make sure that we loved the house before we purchase it and he offered to show us a house a second time if we desired. When it came to Negotiating he gave his opinion and why but made sure that we knew that it was our decision. He never pressured us and that was the most important part of all for Alanna and I.
We just wanted someone who had our best interest at heart. Vince was patient from the beginning and he walked through the entire process with us from day one. He made us feel very at ease with the type of life changing experience."
Alanna & Scott , Olathe (Buyer) Tue, 12 Jul 2016 02:00:12 +1000
"We are very fortunate to have worked with Vince Walk during our home buying process. Vince is extremely accessible and knowledgable; he made our purchase an enjoyable one. We never doubted Vince had our best interests in mind throughout.
Vince went above and beyond what I would consider to be typical broker responsibilities; he took extra steps to ensure our family was completely satisfied with our prospective home purchase.
Vince's attention to detail and transparency with us, his clients, really set our minds at ease. We would recommend the service of Vince Walk to any of our family or close friends; it was an excellent experience!"
Kyle & Nami, Olathe (Buyer) Mon, 11 Jul 2016 12:26:29 +1000
"My experience with Vince Walk was great. To start, I was a first time home buyer and had tons of questions and concerns. He answered all of my questions and explained everything in layman's terms. He responded to all of my texts/emails/phone calls immediately, and set up viewings as soon possible. Additionally, I was a very particular buyer and he was incredibly helpful and patient with me. He never tried to push a property on me or pressure me to look at something I wasn't interested in. Thanks to Vince I finally found a home I love in a great neighborhood. I've already recommended Vince to my friends and family and recommend him to others without reservation."
Carissa Land, Prairie Village, KS (Buyer) Tue, 05 Jul 2016 06:28:44 +1000

He acted as a great sounding board as we processed through finding the best house and neighborhood for our family in our price range."
Ben Sander Kansas City, Ks (Buyer) Tue, 07 Jun 2016 02:17:28 +1000
"Vince was always there for us either by phone, text or in person. He even did FaceTime home visits for us! Living in another state could have complicated our search but Vince went over and above to help make our purchase easy.
Best we have ever had! Very patient and helpful. We highly recommend Vince!"
John and Jayme Resnik. Shawnee, Kansas (Buyer) Sat, 19 Mar 2016 02:16:35 +1000
"We were recommended Vince Walk by my father and it was the best decision we could have made.
Vince is an amazing agent. He is a pure professional but has the personal touch that puts him beyond other agents. Vince walked us through every step, giving us great advice while making sure our decisions were our own. We felt confident, informed and in excellent hands with Vince.
Vince knows this business to a great extent and was always speedy and timely with communications and updates. We never had to wonder what was going on.
We will recommend Vince to anyone looking for a new home and he will be our agent when we decide to look for our next home."
Mike, Overland Park, KS (Buyer) Tue, 02 Feb 2016 14:53:30 +1000
"From the first conversation I had with Vince Walk, I knew he was going to be my realtor. As a first-time home buyer on my own, I was anxious to start the process as I didn't know much about it, and I was unsure if I even wanted to work with a realtor (from a negative past experience.)
I just happened to speak to Vince by calling on a property I drove by - that particular house wasn't the one for me - but as we spoke for about 20 minutes on the home-buying process and what I was looking for, I felt a huge sense of ease and trust with him. He didn't rush our conversation and he answered all questions I had, even the "dumb" ones of a first-time buyer! I was on a pretty tight deadline to find a house before my current lease was up, and he assured me that we had plenty of time to find the one for me.
He was very knowledgeable in the area I was looking (particularly Shawnee Mission schools and the Nall Hills neighborhood) and was happy to look into any property I found on other websites or driving around. He always offered his honest opinion on properties and I really felt like I had a true teammate helping me and caring about finding something I'd love. I never once felt like he was trying to make the most money or put his professional needs above my client needs - something I had unfortunately experienced from another realtor in the past.
My budget for my new home wasn't huge for the area I wanted to be in, so there weren't a great amount of properties in my price range but he never made me feel discouraged or told me to look in a different area - he said just to be patient and that I'd find one.
Through the entire process - finding properties, scheduling showings, looking more than once at a few properties, diving into finding one, negotiating an offer and all of the things that go with it - Vince was supportive, patient and genuinely had my best interest at heart. He never pressured me to hurry or to go out of my comfort zone (in terms of price), and he was quick to answer my (long list of) questions anytime I text, called or emailed him.
He was basically holding my hand throughout the process - from finding "the one" to sitting with me at the inspection, celebrating at the closing with me and even telling me when to call the utility companies when I was close to moving in. He was comforting, trustworthy and an all-around kind-hearted person to work with, especially during such a stressful process.
I recommend Vince to anyone who asks me about a realtor - I'm in a house I absolutely love, at a monthly payment I'm totally comfortable in, and so thankful for such a positive and supportive experience with him. Thank you Vince!"

"From the very first time I communicated with Vince over email, and then in person, I knew he was the realtor for us. His "relaxed professionalism" style was a perfect fit for our family.
If there was a "went above and beyond" option for every single one of the above items, I would've selected that. His work deserves to be called something more than excellent.
Vince is a dream realtor! He's soft around the corners but direct and a realist! His honesty, insights, and overall demeanor were invaluable throughout the process of selling and buying our homes. Many realtors out there feel like stereotypical "sales people" but Vince does not. He's a straight shooter, down to earth, practical, honest and hardworking guy. There is no better realtor for our family, and I'm positive we aren't the first to feel that way and won't be the last. Thank you, Vince for all of your hard work, dedication and friendship throughout this entire process!"

"Vince was willing to listen to any of our concerns, and always easy to get ahold of if we had anything we needed to discuss with him. We could not have asked for a better real estate agent."

"My daughter is a very discerning judge of character. As a neighbor, she has always liked & trusted Vince. She was certain he would give his highest level of attention & service. I can't imagine anyone better protecting me in negotiations or providing me with appropriate choices when important decisions needed to be made. He saved me money & headaches & gave me complete peace of mind. I believe his choices for a mortgage company, roofer, home inspector were second to none. I think Vince Walk will give all his future customers this level of service because this is who he is!!!!!
I think I've previously said it all. I thought he was TERRIFIC !!!!! I could not have found a better agent to represent my interests. He will go far in the real estate industry. He has one happy customer in me. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone!!
He is all of these & more.....he is the kind of person that many of us strive their whole lives to attain & that's no "Bologna".
There was really no need to speak to any of the other ReeceNichols staffers as Vince Walk was always on the job. Who needed anyone else!"

"We received a flyer in the mail from Vince Walk the very day we decided to contact an agent. Because he resides in our same neighborhood, we felt he would be a logical choice for our realtor.
Vince did a great job of selling our home. He was always available if we needed something or had questions. He maintained a positive and professional attitude throughout the entire process. We were very pleased with his performance.
We did not have to deal with anyone other than Vince during our home sale process. He was always available when we needed him."
Michael Schmidt, Shawnee KS (Seller) Tue, 30 Jun 2015 04:43:54 +1000
"We found Vince Walk to have those rare qualities that seemingly are hard to find these days: integrity, dedication, and the willingness to go beyond what is required.
Mr. Walk was always available to us by way of phone or text and responded in a timely manner. He communicated with us often by email to tell us about things that needed to be taken care of or to remind us of things. Even after the sale of our house, he checked with us several times just to see how things were going and to ask if we needed anything.
We moved out of state. Mr. Walk had other resources that he was able to bring into play that helped us find another quality agent. These resources also were valuable in getting our home ready for the showings.
Selling can be stressful. Vince understood this and his confidence that we/he could get everything to work out was comforting.
I would recommend Vince to any of my friends or family without hesitation.
Thanks so much, Vince."

"My brother and the good lord put Vince Walk in my path. Vince had the perfect marketing strategy put together to get my house noticed and we had 3 offers in the first 24 hours. And BONUS it sold for above asking price! He worked with me while I was out of state, and Vince kept me informed every step of the process by phone, texting and email.
I will sing Vince Walk's praises from the mountain top and recommend him highly to all I know. You have a fantastic agent and you are lucky he chose your team, he's going to make you a lot of money and have fun doing it too! He's a good honest, hard working man.
I don't know who was more surprised that the house sold in 24 hours me or Vince. But one of the reasons it did go so quickly is because Vince didn't waste anytime promoting it. I'll always be thankful to you Vince! You are a ROCKSTAR!!!"

"I think I chose very well. Vince went above and beyond in assisting me in the sale of my previous home and the purchase of my new one."

"I spent 6 months using someone else before I switched to Vince and I'm glad I did. He really went above and beyond to make sure my property represented itself as best as it possibly could while I was away."

"Being first time home buyers, we were a little nervous about buying a home. We chose to work with Vince Walk because we were specifically looking for a Realtor who would let us move at our own pace. We didn't want someone who was going to "sell" us a house. We wanted someone who was going to help us find the house that was perfect for us. We never felt pressured or pushed in one direction, yet when we asked Vince for his opinion he was always direct and honest with us. You always hear these nightmare stories about buying a home, but with Vince the process was painless. He was able to walk us through the process step-by-step and handled everything with promptness and professionalism. I would not hesitate to work with Vince again in the future and I plan on recommending him to anyone I know who is looking for a Realtor."
JD Greer Kansas City, KS (Buyer) Thu, 12 Feb 2015 20:26:16 +1000
"Vince was on top of things! Being our first home, we had no idea what to do, ask, expect, etc, and he led us with fervor. He gave us a lot of confidence, reassurance, and guidance, and it was clear that he genuinely had our best interests in mind. I can't recommend Vince enough!"

"Vince did an outstanding job with the process of helping us find our dream home.
He was very knowledgeable about the area and helped us get the home for the price we wanted!"
Chris, Overland Park, KS (Buyer) Tue, 27 Jan 2015 02:54:24 +1000
"I would recommend Vince. He was very knowledgeable and worked to find just the homes we wanted to see. When it came time to make an offer and buy, he made that entire process as easy as possible."
Joe Mazzei, Shawnee (Buyer) Thu, 15 Jan 2015 09:11:16 +1000
"When i initially emailed vince walk & another realtor about a property I was interested in Vince was prompt with the information & went above & beyond & provided more informative information on the property than asked for. He was the first to respond & with more information. He made himself available to view the property at our convenience & was not pushy."
