Scott helped us with our first home purchase and we would strongly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home. He was diligent, punctual, and went the extra mile to ensure the addition on our home was properly permitted. We leaned on him a lot during the process and he walked us through each step.

We chose Scott to sell our beloved Madison home of nearly 25 years. He offered great advice on everything from which home repairs to make before listing, to how to best stage the house, to how to navigate all the complications that can come up while considering an offer. The pictures, virtual tour, and drone flyover Scott commissioned were creative and beautiful, and he helped us set a realistic price that fit our needs. The result was that he was able to get us an offer in a matter of days. And best of all, he was a pleasure to work with - no high-pressure tactics, and we always felt he was genuinely more interested in our well-being than in simply closing the deal. We would use him again in a heartbeat!

Buyer Client

As first time buyers moving to WI from out of state, we were rather apprehensive about how to find listings and judge properties. From our first phone call with Scott, it was clear that not only was he highly knowledgeable about the Madison market, but that he strove to listen to our needs and make us feel comfortable in this new transactional landscape. That first call was not at all a sales pitch, but an open and honest conversation, which left us feeling much better about the process moving forward.

As we began looking at homes, Scott did a great job of finding us listings that fit our budget, location, and neighborhood qualities. He was very helpful about helping us strategize when to visit Madison, and what to expect as the market changed. When visiting houses, Scott was a never-ending source of knowledge, with a very methodical approach to discussing both details and the big picture of the pros and cons of each listing. He was quick to recognize and point out any signs of damage or poor construction, and was very knowledgeable about what to expect of houses of certain vintages in Madison.

When it came to making offers, Scott was a great impartial observer, letting us debate our own pros/cons, but was also extremely helpful in discussing offer strategy in the framework of our resources. He did all the paperwork, and was also helpful in terms of being present for our home inspection and other key steps along the way to closing.

All in all, Scott was amazingly kind, honest, and knowledgeable--a great resource to first time buyers. Whenever we enter the market again, Scott will be our go to guy!

Without Scott Walker I don't think we would be living in the house we are. As first time home buyers we had no idea what we wanted or what was realistic. With an impressive amount of patience and honesty, Scott walked us through house after house. At each place he took the time to thoroughly review the pros and cons. After showing us so many houses I don't know how he maintained his positive attitude but he did and I am grateful because my husband and I are now living in a house that, even after 7 years, I never want to leave. We have referred 2 other families to Scott and both have been extremely happy with him.

Scott walked us through the whole process of selling our home. He helped us decide what repairs to make/prioritize on the house, took care of the listing (took the listing pictures himself), and referred us to a stager and handyman he recommended. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the whole process.

We actually had an unusual scenario happen where a buyer got cold feet after signing all the legally-binding paperwork agreeing to buy, but we didn't panic because Scott knew exactly how to handle it. This was an amazing experience compared to the agent we used to buy our home, who wasn't very professional.

I truly wish we still lived in the Madison area so that we could work with Scott next time we have real estate to buy or sell!

We engaged Scott to help sell our two homes, one in Madison, one in Stoughton, and find a new home in Evansville (WI). Scott was knowledgeable, helpful, respectful, and lovely to work with. The Madison house was updated, but he recommended that we bring in someone to help stage it. The house sold in under 48 hours. The Stoughton house was a bit of a pig. Scott helped us apply the lipstick and it sold a lot quicker than I would have expected. I would also note that the Agents for the buyers had nothing but good things to say about Scott and knew him by reputation. The house we found in Evansville was challenging in many aspects including the seller’s agent. The inspection uncovered knob and tube and some dangerous wiring. Also, the appraisal came in under the selling price so there were some tricky negotiations with cranky sellers that Scott handled like a pro! He's the best!

Scott was wonderful to work with when we were selling our home and making a retirement move to a condo. We looked at a variety of places and Scott was wonderfully helpful with noticing and pointing out things that might be an issue or with ideas on how to use the space. We wanted to settle on a new place before putting our house up for sale so after successfully finding a place, Scott went to work on selling our house. As timing worked out, we were on a trip to Germany while the house was on the market but Scott was wonderful keeping us up to date on what was going on with the house sale. And our house sold while we were gone. A really quick sale in the range we were looking for. Couldn't have been happier with our experience with Scott. Integrity, professional, hard work, great sense of humor, smart -- all around great guy to work with.

Born and raised in Madison, I am enamored with its unique attributes and diverse surrounding communities. Every day I gain a greater appreciation for all this area has to offer. I'm not alone in thinking this is a great place to live, Money Magazine recently declared Middleton the #1 place to raise a family and the greater Madison area, in general, continues to accumulate accolades on a national level.

I understand that buying and selling a home can seem intimidating and make even the most intelligent person completely confused. In a world where many real estate agents and lenders seem to speak a foreign language, I strive to be your interpreter allowing you to make the most informed decision possible. After all, buying and selling a home is a very important and often complicated process. My experience in dealing with numerous transactions, along with my knowledge of Madison and the local market allows me to make your real estate experience as painless as possible...and even a little fun too!

There is no doubt that I get great satisfaction out of being able to put my energy into helping people identify the positive features in homes while avoiding costly pitfalls. Whether you're a first-time homebuyer needing some extra education or a seasoned homeowner, know that through listening to you I hope to not only meet your real estate needs - I plan to exceed them!

Remember, there's no place like home!

Seller Client

We sold our house with Erin in 2018 and it was a wonderful experience.  She was the guiding and stabilizing force that we needed during this stressful process.  From advice on staging the house to creating the amazing online post for our listing, her experience and expertise was incredibly helpful from the onset and the entire process was seamless and pain-free.  She was always available, and never made us feel like we were burdening her.  Her approach was thorough and proactive, so we were never surprised by any part of the process.  Her dedication to us and our listing resulted in an accepted offer within the first week!  She continued to support and guide us through the process until our closing.  Having her in our corner was critical for the success of our sale.   We would (and have) absolutely recommend Erin to friends, family, and anyone thinking about buying or selling a house.

My husband and I were first referred to Erin Prohaska, by one of our family members.  Since then, we have been through two house sales and purchases. We have found Erin to be the ultimate professional in all of our interactions with her.  Her attention to detail, honesty, up- front but caring manner has been outstanding. Erin has been our advocate in all our negotiations with the buyer/sellers. She is not just there for a sale but has your best interest in mind at all times. We have recommended her to all of our family and friends.
Now, she is not just a realtor to us but a part of the family.

We were introduced to Walker Real Estate through family members.   Best decision we made was to sell our house working with this company.  We worked with Erin Prohaska and she made selling our house painless.  She was very professional, available to us for questions and on top of the entire process.  She never pressured us, instead always let us be in the driver seat regarding the sale.  We not only met an incredible company to work with, we made a friend through the process.  We would not hesitate to call Walker Real Estate to help us through another home sale or purchase.

When I was preapproved for a mortgage, I instantly thought of Erin!  Houses were flying off the shelves when we started looking.  There was a house we found that was only on the market for a couple hours, I told Erin we would like to see it.  She did what she does and made that happen within a couple more hours.  We saw the house, fell in love and made an offer.  It was accepted!  She was unbelievably helpful in explaining the process and going through all of the paperwork to help us feel comfortable.  Erin is nicest, most kind person I think I have ever met and her clients are her #1.

Seller and Buyer Client

There aren't enough words to describe how fortunate we've been to have experienced buying and selling two houses with Erin!  Whether purchasing or selling, Erin invested herself into making sure our family was taken care of.  She helped guide us through purchasing and selling of our first home as homeowners. We were always informed, could reach out to her anytime, and never had to wonder if there was anything we were missing. Erin took care of EVERYTHING!
We threw some curveballs at her over the years and she always went the extra mile to find the answers.  Erin sincerely cares about you throughout the entire experience as if you were her own family.  For us, Erin is more than an agent that has helped our family through the home ownership journey, she's someone we easily call a close friend. 
 
Can't recommend her enough...Thanks Erin!!
