Walt began his real estate career after trading rainy days
in Portland, Oregon for our year-round sun and blue skies
in 1977. He quickly discovered that his new career was
a perfect fit. Not only was Walt named “Rookie of the
Year” his first year in the business, he also outsold the
established pros to earn the title of top company producer.
Ever since then, Walt has consistently ranked among the
top-selling Realtors in Arizona.
Walt has built his success on four guiding principles:
integrity, knowledge of the market, understanding the
needs of his clients and old-fashioned hard work. These
attributes, combined with his keen negotiating skills, have
enabled Walt to log nearly $3 billion dollars in sales- a
record unrivaled in Arizona’s luxury home market.
In addition to his numerous accolades and sales records,
Walt has been consistently recognized as a leader among
those watching the industry. He is a fixture on The Wall Street Journal’s list of the most prolific real estate agents in the country. He is also considered to be one
of the 35 most influential people in real estate – a list
that also includes Donald Trump and former Federal
Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. Walt’s expertise has
even lead to the Superior Court of Arizona naming
him a Special Real Estate Commissioner.
Walt began building his team in 2000 by hand-selecting
real estate professionals that shared his energy,
ethics and client-centric focus. That team has evolved
into Walt Danley Realty, a close-knit group of real
estate professionals who combine their specialized
talents to provide the finest real estate service in the
nation. The synergy between Walt and his team creates
an environment where success is the norm and
results are delivered.
In addition to the contribution he makes to his profession,
Walt is equally committed to improving our
community. He is a strong supporter of the Humane
Society, American Heart Association, Southwest
Center for HIV/AIDS and the Arizona Science Center.
