The personalities of this dynamic duo complement each other beautifully. Carla enjoys educating her clients. She's frank and humorous but firm and completely dedicated to those she works with. Jim, her wingman, is the voice of reason. He attends showings and home inspections, and steps in during difficult negotiations with sound advice when needed. The couple's in-depth knowledge of neighborhoods is a great asset to their clients. They are known for their honesty and for going the extra mile.

Listening is instrumental to the Walkers' success. "In real estate, if you do not hear what your clients are saying and understand what is most important to them, they will not be your clients for long," Carla observes. "We truly listen. We want to provide them with as streamlined and stress-free experience." However, it's respect that makes the Walkers stand out. "We respect our peers. We're not in competition with anyone," emphasizes Carla. "We all need each other. The smart thing to do is to work together keeping our clients' interests in mind, and get the job done. That is what our role is!"

During off-hours, Carla is deeply involved in philanthropy. She's currently the first vice president of the Gold Coast Neighbors Association and has served as president of the House of the Good Shepherd Women's Board, among other boards. She loves fast walking, spending time with friends, traveling and having a great meal. Jim enjoys golf, good friends and spending time with family.
