Neil Walter was founded in 1996 when two real estate aficionados put their heads together and combined their middle names. Bruce Walter Valentine and Mike Neil Hickey had experience in the real estate industry and were both working at Trammell Crow Company. They loved the business model that was in play and wanted to bring the same efforts to shine light on the local potential of the Tacoma area.
They started out as a small, local boutique real estate firm offering leasing, sales, property management and development services to clients throughout the South Sound Region. Valentine Hickey didn’t seem to be a fitting name for an up-and-coming real estate firm so that is why we became the flourishing Neil Walter Company that we are today. We now have two offices, one in Tacoma and one in Seattle. We manage 3.5 million sq. ft. of commercial real estate in Tacoma and our new Seattle office is thriving. Managing markets like the Tacoma and Seattle areas offers us the opportunity to solve a need in the industry. Secondary and smaller markets deserve to have access to core services with the same, if not better, quality service with lower price points. We are passionate about being able to continuously provide a locally based and relationship-oriented solution for commercial real estate clients throughout the Puget Sound.
