"Vince Walk came highly recommended by a good friend of mine.
Vince was excellent! We are first time home buyers and he guided us through every step with patience and wise advice, and felt more like a family member than a real estate agent. Vince helped us make the best decision for our family, and helped us find our dream home. We are so grateful we met Vince, he made our experience one to remember!
We absolutely loved working with Vince, he responded immediately to all of our questions, and made time for us to view homes at the drop of a hat.
Our closing was smooth and friendly.
I hope I get the opportunity to recommend Vince to friends and family so they can have a great experience buying or selling a home!"
Elizabeth Grandview, MO (Buyer) Sat, 14 Nov 2020 08:39:10 +1000
"Vince was easy to work with and did a great job explaining the home buying process to me as I was a first time homebuyer. Vince was always accessible and would schedule house showings in a timely manner, most of the time we were able to view the house that day. I would recommend Vince to any first time home buyer or any home buyer in general, buying a house can be overwhelming but I never felt overwhelmed because Vince kept us in the loop on everything and took the time to explain things along the way. Overall I had a great experience working with Vince Walk and I know many others have as well."
TJ Midiros, Kansas City (Buyer) Tue, 03 Nov 2020 00:45:40 +1000
"Vince (and Barbara) Walk were a gift to our family. In what was a very difficult time of transition moving across the country we could not have asked for a better agent duo. They made us feel like family and made the home buying experience a lot less stressful for us given the circumstances. Their patience with us throughout was quite remarkable. I would recommend Vince to anyone and rest confidently in his ability to navigate what are often challenging circumstances in the home buying experience. He will make sure you find the right home!"
Lauren and Kourtney Seaman (Buyer) Thu, 22 Oct 2020 03:25:13 +1000
"Vince was very attentive during the entire sales process both to our needs as well as our buyer's requests for information. His attention to detail and calm, cool demeanor helped keep things on an even keel despite the seemingly chaotic process of selling our home.
If you're selling and/or buying a home, Vince Walk and his team went over and above to make our experience as effortless as possible. We could not have asked for a better team!"
Kurt & Angie Johnston, Baldwin City, KS (Seller) Thu, 01 Oct 2020 01:33:34 +1000
"Vince is an outstanding, knowledgeable, and most importantly--highly effective. My family is incredibly grateful to have had his assistance. From the first meeting through closing, our property was priced right, had excellent traffic, and Vince consistently went above and beyond."

"Vince did an excellent job assisting me with the long distance purchase of my new home."
Alexandra Goddard, Buffalo Grove, IL (Buyer) Thu, 10 Sep 2020 04:19:30 +1000
"There really are not words to adequately express how well Vince takes care of his clients. We’ve been in the metro area for almost 4 years, with no family support of our own in the area; Vince took care of us like we were one of his family, so we didn’t feel alone in selecting a home. Vince knew which house we were going to pick before we even knew which house we were going to pick. That’s how well he knows and understands his clients.
Two years ago he helped us find a home to provide us with stability in a brand new city and now he has helped us achieve permanency in a forever home. You can’t put a price tag on the support you receive when you work with Vince. We’re blessed to have him in our lives and have had the opportunity to work with him on now two home purchases. We will recommend Vince to anyone we can!"
Kate and Kelby D (Buyer) Mon, 07 Sep 2020 10:52:52 +1000
"Vince is amazingly thorough, available, professional, and hard working. I would highly recommend Vince to any buyer/seller."
Cody - Kansas City (Seller) Mon, 24 Aug 2020 23:47:06 +1000
"Vince was very attentive to what I wanted in a house. When I had a question, Vince always found the answer and got back to me immediately. I would highly recommend Vince to family and friends."
Dusty Wilson, Basehor KS (Buyer) Thu, 13 Aug 2020 22:23:10 +1000
"From the moment we met Vince and his wife we were impressed with their professionalism. Vince took my specific circumstances into account and crafted a sales plan to meet them. It was obvious that Vince really cared about helping us sell our home and that we were not just another sale to him. As a wounded veteran, Vince went out of his way to help us sell our home. He was honest, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of selling home. He could not have made the process easier for me. My words fail to convey the true extent of my gratitude For all he did for me."
David Holden, Lenexa Ks (Seller) Sun, 09 Aug 2020 09:35:52 +1000
"Buying a home can be a nerve racking and scary experience. Working with Vince, those feelings never came into my mind. Vince's knowledge, experience and professionalism made the searching for and finding of a home easy and comfortable. I trust Vince's advice and experience and it truly felt like he was helping a friend or family member instead of just another client. I would recommend Vince to anyone and I know that I will be going through Vince again the next time I decide to find a home. Thank you Vince for everything you did and all of your help along with way."
John, Overland Park (Buyer) Thu, 06 Aug 2020 23:03:36 +1000
"Vince made the process seem very simple and fun for us. We have heard so many friends talk about the stresses of finding a home but Vince knew it was a huge milestone in our lives and ensures us that we would have a good time and find the perfect home. He was a great fit as our real estate agent.
Vince is very thorough when it comes to details and that was comforting to know he was reading the fine lines so that we did not have to worry about any issues. As first time home buyers, we didn't know what to expect but Vince was very upfront with what to expect in the process and what would be coming up next.
Vince was very calm and attentive to detail throughout the entire process. He was just as excited as we were to see houses whether or not he could foresee that they weren't the perfect fit. He explained each part of the process to us multiple times and made sure we knew what was most important when finding the proper home.
We always felt comfortable asking questions and always knew he was giving us the advice that was in our best interest. Logan Walk sent us all the information we needed regarding schools and utilities in our new home. When you're overwhelmed with details its was reassuring to know that he had gathered all this information for us.
I cannot say enough about how awesome Vince was during our buying process. He made this process so easy and fun for us. Every moment that we were excited he was excited for us as well. Every moment we were frustrated or disappointed he reassured us that we would keep trying. I could really tell that Vince was going above and beyond to help us find our home and even triple-checking all of the details so that we didn't have to worry about missing something. He was very knowledgeable about the process and the homes. Vince taught us a lot about what to look for in regards to significant damage or concerns. He was so easy to reach anytime we had questions and even if he couldn't answer them he was able to point me to the right person who could. After hearing so many home buying horror stories from friends I knew we were in good hands with Vince."
Rebekah Hampton, Olathe, Ks (Buyer) Thu, 06 Aug 2020 23:01:08 +1000
"Vince took the time needed to discuss my family's needs and wants for our new home. I can tell that he truly cares about the happiness and outcome of the entire process for his clients. We had multiple meetings with Vince in person and on the phone to get our process started. He was extremely responsive, helpful, and willing to explain things that needed explaining. He followed all the necessary protocols during the COVID pandemic, and worked his hardest to make this process seem "like normal" for us. That was very much appreciated since there are a lot of things to consider, and being in a pandemic just adds to that. I would definitely use Vince again and would recommend him to any friends or family that need help in the area.
Dan Smith, Olathe (Buyer) Mon, 03 Aug 2020 01:28:38 +1000
"Vince was/is amazing. He really knew his material and the market. We trusted Vince which made our home shopping experience from across the country go smoothly. Vince was well prepared during our house hunting trip and we couldn’t have been happier with the experience and results."
Anonymous (Buyer) Thu, 09 Jul 2020 22:03:24 +1000
"We would recommend Vince to any of our friends and family because of his professionalism and down to earth attitude. He takes care of all the details and makes a stressful situation run smooth. We will forever be grateful for him."
Tuff & Josie Hermreck, Shawnee, KS (Seller) Sat, 20 Jun 2020 00:37:31 +1000
"Vince was amazing! His communication and understanding throughout the process was exceptional. He worked around my schedule and sold my house very quickly. He is the best in his profession and I definitely recommend him to others!!"
Lacey Daly (Seller) Mon, 15 Jun 2020 04:41:15 +1000
"We had excellent communication with Vince at all times and he made it clear that he was available to answer any and all questions. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt like we were his only client but we knew that was far from the truth. The house sold in 72hrs and everything went very smoothly. We had lots of question about closing and Vince helped us every inch of the way we probably asked the same question twice but thankfully Vince is a patient man! We highly recommend Vince."
Dan and Maureen Johnson, Olathe, Kansas (Seller) Sat, 13 Jun 2020 00:17:03 +1000
"nice and trustworthy guy
very detail oriented."
charles. OP, KS (Buyer) Fri, 29 May 2020 04:56:18 +1000
"Vince was outstanding in every aspect of our purchase of our new home. He went out of his way to assist us in areas I’m not sure were even part of his job. We had not moved in 26 years and through all the emotions and lack of knowledge on procedures on our part, Vince was the perfect person to guide us along. I would have to write a book to describe our feelings towards Vince regarding his assistance through this journey. We feel like we’ve made a new friend with Vince, and how often does that happen in business transactions! Would definitely recommend him over and over again"
Jeff & Patty VanHara, Basehor Kansas (Buyer) Wed, 20 May 2020 01:19:48 +1000
"Vince was an exceptional and knowledgeable realtor. Our process was quite lengthy from beginning to end. Vince was attentive and extremely helpful through the entire process. We are so thankful we chose The Walk Team and will highly recommend their real estate services to anyone. Thank you Vince for helping us build and purchase our final dream home."
Mark Bonham (Buyer) Sat, 16 May 2020 02:44:53 +1000
"We couldn't have any been any more pleased with the professional and courteous manner Vince Walk helped our family with the sale of our residence, and the purchase of our new home. Vince spent a lot of time with us even before the listing and was very attentive with our questions and provided excellent feedback on how to prepare our home for sale. In the middle of our sale, and our next purchase, we found ourselves in the middle of the pandemic. Vince was always just a phone call or text away, and we don't know how we would have made it through the stress of the changes we had to make because of the lock down without his guidance. We knew we were in good hands the entire time because of the great reputation Vince has built with his honest and trustworthy service, and he certainly didn't disappoint. We would recommend Vince to anyone looking for a caring and personable realtor."
Doug and Kristi, Shawnee (Seller) Tue, 14 Apr 2020 22:42:06 +1000
"Vince was selected based on recommendations and knowing his quality of work. He exceeded all of our expectations even though we had recommendations that gave him high praise already. He was always a text or call away throughout the listing and sale process and very responsive to our questions and concerns.
Our family could not have asked for a better person to get us through this process. Vince was everything we were told to expect and more."
Andy, Shawnee, KS (Seller) Tue, 07 Apr 2020 06:50:11 +1000
"I felt I was in good hands with Vince Walk as my realtor. He gave us great advice in preparing my house to be sold and through the entire process of selling it and purchasing my new home. He communicated with us every day in the process and helped us make decisions on anything we asked about. His expertise in handling our sale and purchase gave me great confidence that I was being well taken care of.
Vince made the process of selling a home I had lived in for 30 years and purchasing a home I hope to live in for a long time very easy and satisfying. Our family had great confidence in him at all times. We heartily recommend Vince to anyone who is seeking a caring, personable, and experienced realtor!"
Kathy Knoche, Shawnee, KS (Buyer) Fri, 03 Apr 2020 02:12:39 +1000
"My husband and I are not from the area and don’t know many people. My colleague recommended Vince Walk and after meeting with him it seemed a perfect fit. The process was quick and easy. Vince always was timely in response and always answered our questions. With being first time homebuyers he was patient in explaining everything and definitely made us feel like friends. We are so thankful and we are so happy to have our dream home. Thank you!"
Aubrey Westphal, Kansas (Buyer) Wed, 19 Feb 2020 10:36:39 +1000
"Vince Walk did a terrific job of making us feel taken care of during the home selling process. He was very patient with our slow process, yet quick to answer any questions we had, and he did a great job of serving as a transaction broker for us. I felt very comfortable in his hands! He even went above and beyond and found us a new realtor in Tucson, over 1,000 miles away from our old city.
Our sale was unusual in that we had a relative willing to buy our home for cash, thus negating a lot of the usual process.
Vince was fantastic and we were very happy with him! Would recommend him highly to anyone!"
Tracy Goodrich, Shawnee, KS (Seller) Sat, 08 Feb 2020 13:42:50 +1000
"Vince Walk was not only our realtor but quickly became our friend. He was always available and had our best interest in mind."
Jaime Schonfeldt, DeSoto (Buyer) Thu, 30 Jan 2020 01:28:29 +1000
"Vince Walk is one of the nicest, honest, hard working person we have met. It is hard to put your trust in someone you don’t know, but we couldn’t have had anyone better!
Vince Walk was highly recommended and did not disappoint.
Vince Walk took care of every detail and his knowledge and expertise to negotiate was so impressive! We felt like we were his only client.
This was a big step in buying this house and moving to a new city and Vince was there every step of the way to help us through this. We put our trust in him and he couldn’t have done any better job. We also made a great new friend through this experience and would highly recommend Vince and this company!!"
Susan and Greg Ayers Shawnee KS (Buyer) Thu, 16 Jan 2020 00:22:55 +1000
"Vince with Walk Real Estate Group was hands down wonderful to deal with. Vince was always accessible by phone day and night. Vince would always answer questions and get me the requested information. Walk Real Estate Group is truly there for YOU and will work hard on your behalf. The home buying process can be a lot of work, but Walk Real Estate Group made it as easy as possible, keeping me in the loop of exactly what needs to be done and when. I highly recommend Walk Real Estate Group to anyone looking to purchase a home!"
Aaron, KS (Buyer) Fri, 27 Dec 2019 17:09:57 +1000
"I certainly will be recommending Vince to anybody needing an agent.
This whole experience was great. Vince was a pleasure to work with
There was another offer on the property. Vince recognized how to make our offer so we got it."
Martin Fleming Overland Park (Buyer) Sun, 22 Dec 2019 13:26:54 +1000
"Vince was the first of three contacts to get back to me with stats, testimonials. This was my uncle's home. He passed in April, I was executor and lived on the East Coast - 1,300 miles away. I have never bought, sold or owned a home. Vince held me every step of the way - with honesty and compassion and integrity - as if he were a family member--as if it was his own home! He sold the car for me, provided me with reliable and trusted probate attorney, vacant homeowner agent, and every "fixer-upper" necessary to get the home ready for listing. The home was on the market less than 2 weeks. I only came out to the property in July - from there he guided me every step of the way - always answered the phone, emailed me with all updates and to just check in. You don't need to search any further. He's the BEST!"
Barbara E. Shola, Fairfield, CT, Administrator Estate of Victor A. Babu (Seller) Thu, 19 Dec 2019 02:44:03 +1000
"Vince was terrific in every aspect of buying and selling our old home. He was always available to answer any questions and really easy to work with. He was very diligent when looking at houses and always available to work around our schedule. I would highly recommend Vince to anyone looking to buy or sell a house."
Brad Todd, Olathe (Buyer) Tue, 17 Dec 2019 03:01:22 +1000
"I will not purchase or sell a home from anyone besides Vince Walk. He came highly recommended from friends who have purchased homes with Vince so I was confident with his abilities and chose him on purpose. He exceeded every expectation I had and made this entire process so much easier than it could have been. Vince showed us tons of houses and was patient through every single one. He worked around our schedule, which was huge because we do shift work. Vince was easy to reach and timely with responses. He was able to answer any question we had through the process. He was very kind and understanding when we withdrew an offer on a house after the inspection showed some significant issues. He took it personally because he knew how upset we were. Vince worked so hard to help us find our house and ended up finding us a house that worked out better than the first one. We wouldn't trust anyone else in this process and look forward to getting to work with him in the future. Vince is amazing at his job and anyone would be lucky to have him in their corner!"
Mandi and Josh, Merriam (Buyer) Sun, 24 Nov 2019 05:17:17 +1000

I really enjoyed working with Vince. The purchase of my home was very easy.
Vince was very responsive to all of my needs.
I had a great experience with Vince and have since passed his name on to my friends."

"Buying a home is scary! Vince and the Walk Real Estate Group made the entire process simple and easy. He was there every step of the way - from the first meeting to the very end!"
Chuck & Denise Seawood (Buyer) Sun, 27 Oct 2019 14:59:12 +1000
"We listed our home on a Thursday, had multiple offers that day, and under contract by Friday! Vince and Barbara are exceptional in providing honest feedback and advice in a market that is overrun by deception. Their customer service and willingness to be flexible and understanding in such stressful/scary/exciting times provides the needed assurance that a home buyer/seller needs. As a previous client, as well as friend, of both Vince and Barbara, I would not consider anyone else in the Kansas City area as my realtor.
I would recommend anyone to the Walk Real Estate Group, whether a first time buyer or an experienced one, Vince and Barbara will be in your corner to provide first rate customer service and ensure you will not be alone on your journey!
Thank you for everything Vince and Barbara!!!"
Chris and Sabrina, Overland Park (Seller) Tue, 15 Oct 2019 06:18:16 +1000
"Great customer service! Vince always returned my calls, texts, and/or emails promptly. I always knew I could count on Vince to be there for me when I need the help. After losing my husband this was my first house to sell and a house to purchase on my own. I had many questions for Vince and he always made me feel as if I was his most important client. I highly recommend Vince and Barb!"
Cindy, Basehor area (Seller) Mon, 14 Oct 2019 11:48:46 +1000
"Vince is the best Realtor I have used. He was quick to respond to questions, seemed to be very established in the area, and had great contacts for services we needed."
Zach P (Buyer) Tue, 24 Sep 2019 07:30:25 +1000
"We chose The Walk Real Estate Group because of their great reputation from many friends of ours at church. Vince was definitely the right choice. We embarked on a journey to find the perfect home since we were now empty nesters and he showed us lots of choices. In the year it took us to make up our minds he sold a home to our son and a home to our daughter. Obviously we're team Walk! So now Vince and Barbara Walk aren't just our realtors but also our friends. Their patience, kindness and encouragement made this a fun experience!"
Carole Ann Fleming (Buyer) Tue, 10 Sep 2019 06:37:12 +1000
"We listed our home on a Friday, had multiple offers by Sunday night. We made an offer on our current house on Saturday, offer accepted by Monday. He gave solid advice about staging/selling, and was very gracious with our schedules (I'm a nurse and work on-call, so making appointments is always tricky). I am particular (read: "difficult"), and Vince respected/honored my must-haves/deal-breakers in stride.
No doubt, A+, would hire again (and again)!
He is patient, professional, made himself available on short notice, and is very knowledgable in his field.
Vince knew specifics about bidding, contracts, etc. and it was reassuring when he suggested using an escalating bid clause that we'd never heard of, to give us an edge on our bid for current home.
We've known Vince for years, and know him to be trustworthy/professional."
Revonna Johnson, Kansas City (Buyer) Sun, 08 Sep 2019 12:25:00 +1000
"Vince is a great guy to work with. Communication is a priority for him and he keeps you in the loop every step of the way. He was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend his services to anyone who needs to sell their home"
Deb Beauchamp (Seller) Tue, 06 Aug 2019 05:16:04 +1000
"Vince was patient, knowledgeable, and professional. His communication with us was strong every step of the way. We always felt he was looking out for our best interests. His attention to detail was top-notch in everything from the paperwork to the pictures for the listing to communicating with the other agents. Thanks to Vince, our buying/selling process was smooth!"
Marcus & Erin Fizer, Shawnee (Buyer) Mon, 05 Aug 2019 05:44:46 +1000
"As a first time homebuyer, I believe we made the greatest decision in choosing the Walk Real Estate Group. From the very beginning our needs were heard and we were offered the opportunity to look at many homes. In the stages of making an offer, we felt as though we were making a great decisions in the matter of feeling prepared and informed of the process ahead. All questions were answered in a professional and timely manner. Every step of the way through the process we were given information where we did not feel overwhelmed or confused. Everything that was relayed onto us was crystal clear and made sense even to someone who has never tried to buy a home before. Great service, great people, great experience. Very very pleased and am recommending to all friends/family"
Mr. and Mrs. Heriford, Shawnee (Buyer) Wed, 31 Jul 2019 00:45:27 +1000
"If you make the choice of the Walk Group to help sell your home you know that you made the best choice possible. We have used Vince Walk before and having the added addition of Barbara this time around made it a bonus. They are both great, trustworthy and knowledgeable!
We had no issues that Vince couldn't handle
Vince and Barbara were easy to talk to, they listen well to our needs and were very accessible."
Jayme Resnik, Lenexa Kansas (Buyer) Tue, 30 Jul 2019 02:40:21 +1000
"The Walk Real Estate Group was more than wonderful to work with. The home-buying and selling processes can be lengthy, tedious, and frustrating at times, but Vince Walk made both buying and selling a home as pleasant as possible. I was most impressed with Vince's helpfulness, knowledge, and punctuality. He was very responsive and so accommodating despite his busy schedule. Vince gives 100% in his work and treats his clients like family. My overall experience working with The Walk Real Estate Group was so much easier and enjoyable than I ever anticipated and I'd gladly choose them for any of my future buying or selling needs."
Jannel Nickum, Merriam (Buyer) Sun, 21 Jul 2019 13:00:27 +1000
"Thank you Walk Real Estate Group. My wife and I greatly appreciated the manner in which Vince dealt with us as a client and a friend. His knowledge of the current real estate market greatly assisted with our selling decisions. We are confident we got the most out of our house sale which is credited to Vince. Thank you and we'll see you in March for the next step."
Mark and Mary Bonham (Seller) Wed, 17 Jul 2019 02:12:07 +1000
"The Walk Real Estate Group made the entire process very clear from the start. Having never bought a home before, we were completely in the dark, but after one meeting with Vince, it suddenly seemed doable. He and his associates were a pleasure to work with, and we couldn't be happier in our new home."
Ryan Palmer, Kansas City (Buyer) Thu, 04 Jul 2019 09:29:16 +1000
"Vince Walk did an amazing job! He was great about explaining exactly what was going to happen. Exactly what the costs would be. He kept our interest and price point in mind and got us exactly what we wanted! He also did an amazing job negotiating contracts and terms so we only had to put in one offer and got the house we wanted the first time!"
George and Ashton Walker (Buyer) Fri, 14 Jun 2019 09:28:49 +1000

Liz Johnson. Shawnee KS (Seller) Thu, 13 Jun 2019 12:50:47 +1000
"I was super nervous about the buying and selling process but Vince made it easy. Vince kept me informed every step of the way and was patient. I’d absolutely use Vince again and would tell others he’s a solid choice."
Rodger L. - Overland Park KS (Seller) Wed, 12 Jun 2019 01:00:34 +1000
"My wife and I were first time home buyers and very apprehensive of the whole process. From the start, Vince put us at ease with his friendly and patient demeanor. Vince took the time to explain, in great detail, the process at each and every step. He worked hard for us, going above and beyond at all times and constantly proving to us why he was the right choose and the best agent around. I would highly recommend Vince to my family and friends. His knowledge and work ethic and absolutely second to none."
Chase and Rebecca Light, Kansas City (Buyer) Wed, 29 May 2019 08:26:36 +1000
"Although I have known Vince and Barbara Walk for many years, this was my first experience working with them as part of The Walk Real Estate Group. Vince completed most of my sale and he made the entire process extremely easy and reduced my stress level tremendously. I couldn't imagine doing the work without him. My home was listed and sold for more than asking price within a single weekend. Needless to say, I am a very happy seller and would absolutely recommend The Walk Real Estate Group to others in the future."
Jannel Nickum, Kansas City, Missouri (Seller) Tue, 28 May 2019 07:37:42 +1000
"I would definitely recommend Walk Real Estate Group to anyone and everyone. Vince made the process easy and fun. He helped us sell our home in 3 days and helped us get a fair price for it. Vince helped us find our dream home and really listened to what we were looking for in a house."
Nicki Younger (Buyer) Tue, 28 May 2019 05:19:41 +1000
"Using the Walk Real Estate Group was the best decision we made regarding the sale of our home.
Vince was very proactive in finding buyers for our home. He had multiple parties interested before it even had a chance to go to the MLS listing & because of this we did not have deal having open houses. We also received multiple offers above our asking price.
We could not have asked for a better agent or sales process.
We have known Vince for 18 yrs and knew exactly of the incredible character and integrity that he has. We did not even consider using anyone else, even though we have several other friends and neighbors who are realtors. Integrity was key in our decision making process.
Vince was incredible to work with. He was proactive and beyond helpful (when he called to say the appraiser was coming my husband was out of town and I had a smoke detector that was in need of a new battery. I asked Vince if that would be an issue. He said "I'll come by and take care of it"...he even brought a battery. I challenge anyone to find that kind of service with a realtor chosen from a Yelp review.) Vince also kept in constant contact with updates throughout the entire process.
The whole process of selling our home was very easy and stress free because of Vince's expertise, knowledge & accessibility.
We HIGHLY recommend the Walk Real Estate Group."
Julia Mann, Shawnee KS (Seller) Mon, 15 Apr 2019 23:45:20 +1000
"We were new to the area and Vince has made us feel welcome from the get go. He was very knowledgeable and trustworthy. He has eased our anxieties and answered all our questions with patience, sometimes going over and beyond. He had a list of professionals lined up for us to help us meet our needs, all of whom were awesome recommendations. He was very efficient and got our offer submitted and accepted in less then 24 hours. He has truly been a great pleasure to work with. Not only is he a person of integrity and great work ethic he is just as personable and friendly! As a buyers agent he did a great job seeking to serve us and was conscious to save us money. If you are looking for a realtor you will not be disappointed with Walk Real Estate!!!!"
Natalia D Shawnee (Buyer) Wed, 20 Mar 2019 06:32:53 +1000
"I have known Vince for 30 years and worked with him for 25 years. I knew from having worked with him before he would be an excellent agent. His work ethic and dedication to serving his clients was not any surprise to me. Excellent service and dedication to the client are his work ethic.
If you want results, The Walk Real Estate Group should be your choice to handle your real estate needs."

"Vince and the Walk Real Estate Group were amazing throughout the process. He ensured that we knew what to have ready for the open house and caught even the smallest of details. The photographs looked amazing and people commented on how great the house looked when it showed. I know this made the difference in getting us an above asking offer!
After the offer, Vince took care of scheduling contractors and never stopped working for us during negotiations!"

"We knew Vince Walk personally and knew his family and the kind of people they are. Vince helped us sell our prior house and did an excellent job. All communication was prompt and the process was seamless.
When it came to looking for a new house, we didn't think of any one else. From looking at dozens of houses to finally narrowing it down and picking our forever house, Vince was just a call, text or email away. We got the house of our dreams and couldn't be happier thanks to Vince and his team. Would highly recommend to anyone in search of their new home."

"My husband and I are extremely happy with the service Vince and his team provided. They were always a step ahead of us and made sure nothing was left undone. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable and by far the best agent we have ever had. We have already referred Vince to our family and friends and look forward to working with him in the future."

"Couldn't have asked for any better communication and explanation of process! Vince was amazing to work with! We love our new home and would highly recommend Vince and his team for any realty needs. The Walk Rest Estate Group went above and beyond to make sure that we found the perfect home for our family!"
Cole Bonham (Buyer) Tue, 09 Oct 2018 01:37:23 +1000
"Vince was always available to answer our questions, even after office hours. He provided us with case scenarios so that we could weigh our options. Everything was explained thoroughly and we always knew what to expect. Our house sold in hours and Vince kept us apprised of the offer, options and details of everything. We were extremely satisfied with Vince's handling of our sale.
Vince was amazing. He helped with every aspect of the preparation, listing and sale. It went smoothly and the house was sold in one day. He organized the closing, taking into consideration our schedule and members of his staff worked diligently to complete all paperwork in a timely manner.
Everyone we dealt with was polite, helpful and knowledgeable. We were pleased with the entire group and would recommend them to help with real estate needs."
Jackie Scott, Shawnee (Seller) Tue, 02 Oct 2018 08:41:42 +1000
"My daughter said Vince Walk came highly recommended by her friend. I trust my daughter so I called Mr. Vince. We talked briefly and I was sold on his knowledge of the area. Since we were moving from another state, finding someone who knew this area was a BIG deal for us. Vince never left us guessing. He always knew the answers to our questions. I'm a very non-trusting, and someone that wants what I want when I want it kind of person. Vince actually handled me and my worries like a Pro. Vince is very professional but easy to talk to. Loved that about him.
Can't say enough good things about how wonderful it was to work with so many professional men and women. Seriously in my experiences of buying and selling my houses in the past, well let's say there is always that one person that you'd rather not work with. But The Walk Real Estate Group was AMAZING!! Everyone we had contact with made buying our Dream House so easy. I would definitely highly recommend The Walk Real Estate Group!"
Sherri Trippel-Huggins (Buyer) Sat, 29 Sep 2018 10:28:17 +1000
"Quick response time was very important to my decision to switch real estate agents. Vince was VERY prompt at calling back, if he wasn't available. He would text us if he was with another client to acknowledge that he seen that we were trying to get a hold of him and that he would get back with us as soon as possible. He was so attentive. He was the best real estate agent I've ever had and this was the 5th house that I've owned. This was a new construction that started in Feb 2018 and we just moved Aug 30, 2018. He was so patient throughout the entire process. I didn't even know that there were real estate agents out there that were so knowledgeable and professional! It really was a pleasure to have gone through this process with him, on my side.
He's a problemsolver and quick thinker. He was good at easing anxiety, that occurred during the building process, because he always had answers. In the event he didn't have the answer then, he would get back with us as soon as he did have the answer. Superb customer service! The BEST customer service that anyone could ask for and that we all yearn for!
Everything went as flawlessly as it possibly could have. We sold our home and moved right into our new home, without a lapse in residence. Remarkable! Best case scenario EVER!
Friendly, professional, trustworthy, and very patient are a few of the wonderful qualities that Vince brought to his job everyday and with every communication."
Melinda Johnson, Basehor, KS (Buyer) Tue, 04 Sep 2018 06:05:40 +1000

Jill Bonham (Seller) Tue, 04 Sep 2018 00:09:59 +1000
"We had an amazing experience with The Walk Real Estate Group. We were very stressed about being first time home buyers because we knew nothing about buying a house. Barbara and Vince worked with us for months to make sure that we found the perfect first home. They were patient, kind, communicative, and never made us feel like we needed to change our budget or area we were looking in. They were very helpful and explained every step of the process to us in great detail. We highly recommend The Walk Real Estate Group, especially to first time home buyers! Barbara and Vince are simply amazing and we are beyond satisfied with the home they helped us find and purchase."
Haley and Derek, Tonganoxie (Buyer) Fri, 31 Aug 2018 12:17:14 +1000

"Vince walked us through the whole process. Made great suggestions on what updates to do to the residence and what not to waste money on. Our house sold before listing it. We were extremely happy with the whole process. Vince was there through it all, and made all the difference. I would use him again in a second!"
Mike and Stephanie Saylor, Tonganoxie,KS (Seller) Wed, 18 Jul 2018 21:48:03 +1000
"Vince was fabulous to work with! We sold our house and bought another home in the area and Vince was on top of every detail throughout the process. We appreciated how quick he was to respond to questions/issues. His attention to detail and thoroughness with our contract avoided what could have been a sticky situation with the sellers of our new home. Highly recommend Vince as both a buyer and seller agent!"
Angie, Olathe (Buyer) Mon, 16 Jul 2018 05:22:53 +1000
"Vince is a professional and friendly person to work with. If you have questions, he is available and quick to get the answer. I really appreciate his insight to possible locations and his ability to negotiate through buying AND selling! I would recommend him to anyone we know that could possibly be looking to go through the house hunting process."
Tracy Armentrout / Shawnee (Buyer) Tue, 03 Jul 2018 01:07:04 +1000
"We couldn't imagine a better realtor than Vince. He made the process easy start to finish and constantly thought of details we didn't. Vince never made us feel like we were bothering him no matter how small the detail and always got back to us right away. Vince was incredibly knowledgeable and handled a number of issues before they even got to us."
Jenelle Long, Kansas City (Buyer) Wed, 27 Jun 2018 05:00:49 +1000
"Working with Vince was one of the highlights of buying a house during an otherwise stressful time. He was patient (3 years and possibly hundreds of houses and thousands of miles) and had a genuine interest in helping me find the perfect home.
There was never a question I had that Vince couldn't answer. Additionally, if I saw a house and he wasn't immediately available to show it to me he would go out of his way to find an agent who could. Vince is warm, caring, and personable....the experience was just like I was shopping for a house with a close friend."
Khat Hopkinson (Buyer) Tue, 26 Jun 2018 01:39:45 +1000
"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."
Kate, Spring Hill, KS (Buyer) Wed, 20 Jun 2018 11:28:36 +1000

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

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."

"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."

"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"

"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
"Vince Walk went above and beyond our expectations. He was available and had good understanding of the communities we were looking in. Vince was informed but never "pushy". 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!"
Annie, Overland Park (Buyer) Tue, 12 Jan 2016 05:10:33 +1000
"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!"
Jake & Tori Blake - Shawnee, KS (Buyer) Fri, 04 Sep 2015 02:28:10 +1000
"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."
Dennis Albin Shawnee Ks (Seller) Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:32:55 +1000
"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!"
Joan Robertson of Kansas City, Kansas (Buyer) Tue, 01 Sep 2015 12:22:18 +1000
"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."
Bill and Janelle McGuire, Overland Park, Ks (Seller) Fri, 12 Jun 2015 12:47:36 +1000
"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!!!"
J. McQuaid (Seller) Thu, 28 May 2015 04:17:15 +1000
"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."
J Bayless, KS (Seller) Mon, 16 Feb 2015 02:11:10 +1000
"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!"
Jamie~ Kansas City (Buyer) Mon, 02 Feb 2015 03:21:27 +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."
