“Seniors’ Real Estate Social Worker” is a perfect title for Hilary Walker. According to the Google dictionary, social work refers to “work carried out by trained personnel with the aim of alleviating the conditions of those in need of help or welfare”. In our experience, Hilary works tirelessly to alleviate the unique conditions that make moving so difficult for seniors, and she is trained in real estate to represent their best interests in the sale of their home. It takes a special person to be able to understand the challenges seniors face when confronting the prospect of moving at their late stage in life. Managing them with respect and dignity and assuring their interests are being met is a delicate balance. Hilary seems to do this with ease.
We would highly recommend Hilary Walker to anyone looking to sell their home and, more specifically, to seniors faced with the daunting task of embarking on these changes late in life.
Hilary was such a joy to work with! She did a fantastic job listing my family’s condo. The property photography was also top notch. Within a couple of days of listing, there were multiple offers on the table. My wife and I picked one and Hilary handled every detail flawlessly. This was by far the smoothest real estate transaction I’ve ever been a part of. If you’re looking for a realtor who pays attention to you, maintains excellent communication, and is friendly and knowledgeable, Hilary is the one!
Hilary could NOT have been more helpful! She was hired to help my parents sell their home, but she went well beyond that duty! She calmly walked them through every aspect of the moving process and, when questions arose outside her realm of expertise, she helped them connect with the proper professionals so the issues could be addressed and explained satisfactorily to the them. She made sure they knew how to proceed, and why. Hilary patiently worked with them and prompted them to take on each task as it arose. We truly believe our parents would be sitting in that home to this day, wringing their hands with worry and having more and more difficulty managing the physical upkeep of their home, if it hadn’t been for Hilary’s comforting, assertive, and professional demeanor.
Hilary was also very professional with strong communication skills at all times. She went above and beyond her role as a realtor several times as she intervened in negotiations with their lawyer. She facilitated conference calls with the lawyer, them and their son (or two), to get legal paperwork handled in order to keep moving in a forward direction. She asked pertinent questions, made sure the answers were clearly understood, and strived to create deadlines to ensure accountability. In addition, she helped them connect with businesses to handle in-home sales and auctions to explore options to clear out the home.

We have bought and sold more than 12 homes in Canada and the United States of America. Which means we have been exposed to a variety of persons and personalities in the real estate business. Needless to say, we have not met anyone who cares so very much about the needs of her clients as Mrs. Hilary Walker!! She has demonstrated such humanitarian qualities, more than we can express in words. She does not care for the financial gains as much as she cares for the well being of her clients!! Hilary, is unique in her approach to making sure the people she comes in contact with are well taken care of! whether it is selling a piece of property, or recommending the purchase of a home! Predicated upon these qualities, we would recommend her to any and everyone who needs to buy or sell his or her property!! She will make sure you are well taken care of in every way.

Hilary Walker is an awesome realtor and I recommend her to first time home buyers or seniors or anyone else who appreciates a professional who pays attention to detail and listens to her clients. Hilary found the perfect house for me and my family after listening to all of our wants and desires. She answers questions kindly and asks questions gently. She will hold your hand throughout the entire process. Don’t trust your family’s future with just anyone, trust Hilary.
“Having worked with a number of real estate professionals over the years, I can honestly say that Hilary Walker has unique qualities not found in many. Ms. Walker assisted me in attempting a concurrent out-of-town house sale and in town house purchase, both of which were complicated. She listened carefully, researched what was unfamiliar to both of us and collaborated closely with the other realtors. All of this was done with great patience and tact at a time when she had a number of other demanding commitments. I highly recommend Hilary Walker’s professionalism, focus and elegance.”
