REAL ESTATE CONSULTATION
Hourly consultation services are available for complex or unusual real estate situations. For example, we analyzed the implications of a land lease renewal for a doctor owned medical office building. We also manage appraisers, inspectors and contractors on behalf of our clients.
We work with landowners, public agencies, land trusts and appraisers to facilitate land transfers for wildlife habitat and open space conservation purposes. Donation of some or all of the appraised land value can result in tax savings from charitable deductions.
When moving my business, I understood the need to have someone who was savvy in the world of real estate. His expertise was invaluable. He really helped me to get the best possible deal I could and coached me through the terms outlined in the 40+ page lease agreement. His professionalism and knowledge of real estate saved me time and frustration working with landlords, but also saved me money!

Jonathan is head and shoulders beyond any of the agents I sought help from in locating my new shop. He responded immediately and let me know that he would work for me as my advocate in finding the best situation with the best terms. He understood what I was looking for and provided a range of viable options until we found my ideal space. He offered to negotiate, and ultimately received, 6 weeks of free rent while I set up, which hadn’t even occurred to me. I enjoyed every aspect of dealing with Jonathan—he’s personable, friendly, professional and highly competent.
Jitendra Darling, Owner,
I've known Jonathan for over 25 years and I've never met a more dedicated and service-oriented broker than him. Jonathan goes the extra mile for his clients (and friends) and has impeccable integrity, always putting client interests first.
George Carver, Executive Coach
Jonathan is very knowledgeable and he knows his business! He handled all the back and forth and was with us for every step of the way. He is an easy going type, though very professional, and seems to know who to speak with to resolve any questions. I highly recommend Jonathan. He handled everything for us, was always available by phone and ultimately got us the property! Thank you Jonathan!

I had a great experience working with Jonathan on my real estate purchase. He worked tirelessly to uncover opportunities that others didn't find.
He stayed on top of the details of the transaction and always had my best interest at heart. I highly recommend him.
Lisa Levin, Homeowner
Jonathan Walker did a magnificent job for me. The buyer indicated he had a pressing deadline because of a 1031 exchange so we had to act very quickly. Jonathan knew exactly what to do, quickly determined market value, prepared the correct paperwork, and negotiated with the seller in a quick and precise manner.
He was very professional, presented me with great details regarding the property, as well as good advice. His service was excellent, his manner is very thoughtful and easy to understand and his work was very thorough.

Symmetry of Movement
My wife Colleen and I had a truly exceptional experience working with Jonathan to buy our new home. He guided us on the many financial implications and the realities of our economic situation.
When we finally found the perfect home, Jonathan jumped right in and worked with us to properly structure our initial bid, and then two more subsequent bids. We had to negotiate with the seller’s probate estate and eight other bidders and it was Jonathan’s steadfast guidance that secured the deal. His even keel and smooth demeanor helped make this tough transaction a relatively simple deal.
