We interviewed a few different realty companies and felt very comfortable with Walt and loved the flexibility that Friends of Newport Beach Animal Shelter had to offer. We listed our home on a Tuesday and by Sunday, we had our first showing and a great offer. Our For Sale sign hadn´t even been hammered into the ground and we were already planning the inspection. I know it was the MLS listing that gave us the exposure that we needed and helped us find the perfect buyer. I´d recommend Friends of Newport Beach Animal Shelter to anyone looking to sell their home. Not only did we save over $13,000 in commissions, but Walt was so responsive to all of our questions replying to my voicemails and emails on weekends and nights. A class act – all around!

Thank you for making the MLS services possible! We gained MAJOR & IMMEDIATE exposure with our listing on . We sold our house within 1 month - in a very questionable market. You also saved us an amazing $14,250! No question - we´d do it again with Friends of Newport Beach Animal Shelter in a heartbeat! Thank you, thank you!

Dear Walt,

Thank you for all your help with selling our home! We really appreciated all the time you took to answer our phone calls and answer our questions. You took the fear of selling our home away and allowed us to save about $6,000. Deborah was fearful at first, but the time you took to help us and reassure us was well worth it in the end. We have one family friend who is currently using your business to list their home as well as many others who are now considering doing it the Flat Fee way. Thanks again!

Dear Walt,

Hi. Well the dust is starting to settle and we’re still unpacking, but we had to take the time out to drop you a line to say thank you! If it weren’t for you, we would not be writing to you from our own home. Thank you! You were the only real estate agent who took us seriously when we wanted to buy a home. Not only that, but you listened to what we wanted and didn’t wait; you went right to work finding us not one, but many that fit our requirements. You showed us the ones we wanted to see and then sat back and left the decision up to us. No pressure. It was great! It took a lot less time than we had anticipated.

Dear Walt,

Thanks so much for all your help on my home - hunt. You were very receptive to my needs and budget, and I think the condo is going to be perfect for me. Although I’ve always dreamed of owning my own home, I wasn’t sure it would ever be possible. What a great feeling!

Thanks again, and you can definitely count on a referral if anybody asks me if I know of any good real estate agencies.

Dear Walt,

I want to formally thank-you for helping market my client’s property in Newport Beach, CA. It was a lucky day when I was given your name.

Your enthusiasm and diligence in handling this matter were beyond the call of duty and your professionalism was exemplary. I have been practicing at this point for over thirty years and there are few occasions when a client has received the quality of service which you provided.

Thank-you for your efforts and I certainly hope that we have an opportunity to work together again. Moreover, I will have no qualms whatsoever in recommending any clients I have in your area to use your services should the occasion arise. Best of luck.

To Whom It May Concern,

The service and personal attention we received from Friends of Newport Beach Animal Shelter was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! They are truly a high-calibre team. Their knowledge of the local market and their key contacts in the community helped us in our search for our dream home. After patiently going through listings and explaining tax details with us, Walt Howald made sure we got the best offer for our previous home and more importantly, the best value purchase for the new one!

Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Walt Howald to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process.
