My husband and I have purchased real estate in CT, NY, VT, CA, GA and FL. We have never met a more dynamic real estate couple!! Janet makes it fun to look and listened closely to what we wanted.....and then found us the perfect condo which we enjoyed for several years! Then they found us a great home in Bird Key which we really loved. I recommend them both highly and their attention to detail is beyond !!

I was honored when Janet requested that I write on this wall. I found her to be engaging, intelligent and defenitely knows the real estate market in and around Sarasota, FLA. Also, she was able to direct me so I did not have to work so much. I was able to conclude a successful search and put my purchase on hold. I will be following this young lady!

We are so excited about our new home. We truly believe that had it not been for Janet Walter's hard work and diligence, this purchase would not have happened. Janet's tenacity and patience were exactly what we needed to make this big decision. She is a true ambassador for Longboat Key. We consider her a valued resource and friend.

Everyone can be a realtor but not everyone can be an honest and professional realtor. Steve and Janet are just that. They have helped me personal find what I was looking for and stick with the process until well after the closing was done. I have also seen them help clients with everything they need to make for a successful purchase. I would highly recommend the Walters.

We have worked with Janet and Steve Walter both when buying a home where they were representing the seller, and we are now listing our home with them. They are extremely experienced, professional and easy to work with. The husband/wife team brings a wide breadth of perspectives, knowledge and energy to all that they do. We did not even consider any other real estate agent!

We selected Janet after reviewing the online profiles of a number of Sarasota area realtors. Janet’s casual, professional, no-pressure approach was the reason we entrusted her with the job of finding a luxury condo for our family. The fact that Janet has lived on Longboat Key for almost 20 years and is closely connected to the community gave us confidence that she had the local awareness to guide us through the process of finding the perfect Longboat Key Waterfront vacation home. Although we were not in a hurry, and were prepared to spend months to find the right luxury Longboat Key condo, Janet helped us find the perfect property in less than a month. We could not be happier with our decision to hire Janet to facilitate the purchase of our Positano penthouse!

By listening to and getting to know her clients, Janet Walter uses her intuition to match the client with the right property. Additionally, her widespread relationships allow her to draw from many sources both from the sellers as well as buyers. Her professionalism and attention to detail combined with her relaxed, welcoming manner make Janet Walter my first choice in realtors on the Gulf Coast. I know she is always looking out for my best interests.

The Walter group is very knowledgeable in the Sarasota and Manatee County area. We worked with them on several deals on longboat key and they were very professional and fun to work with. They treat you like you are their only customer even though clearly they handle a lot of business. I would highly recommend them!

After having our home listed with another Realtor and spent many months of frustration with the lack of professionalism with them, we hired Janet and Steve, Walter Group.

The result in selling our home was significant! Janet and Steve's level of competence, professionalism, kindness, and ethics are outstanding.

Our home was sold quickly and we are grateful to have met this dynamic duo.
Thank you Janet and Steve!

Extremely knowledgeable real estate team for Longboat Key and surrounding Sarasota area. We could not have found our dream home without Janet and Steve's support. They respected our time frame and were very helpful in assisting with our research of the area. Starting with remote calls to align on our interests and the market, then tours of area via boat (the only proper way to see water front property), followed by regular updates on the new offerings. In the end, we were able to find the perfect home and navigate quickly through the negotiation and closing, Janet and Steve remain valuable friends with a wealth of knowledge about the local Longboat Key community. As Longboat Key residents, their knowledge of the market is unsurpassed and the ability begin our search in the area via Steve's boat were huge differentiators for us in finding the right home in the right location. We highly recommend the Walter Group!

Janet has been our neighbor in Sleepy Lagoon on Longboat Key for 15 years. We finally decided it was time to sell our home and based on our long-term relationship, chose Janet as our Sleepy Lagoon - Longboat Key listing agent. We didn’t realize how much was involved in listing, staging, and marketing our home, but Janet made the selling process easy and had our Longboat Key waterfront property sold, for a great price, within a week! Janet also helped us to purchase our new home and coordinated all of the details of coordinating both contracts – almost simultaneously. Janet acted quickly on a property that came back on the market after another deal fell through and treated us as if we were her only clients. She expertly negotiated the best price, leaving us room to make improvements and move within our time frame. We would definitely recommend Janet to both sellers& buyers!
