Jim left a successful career in the world of international travel to enter commercial real estate here in San Francisco. Like Alex, Jim loves the friendliness and one-on-one appeal of negotiating for small business owners.
He was born in Boston and grew up in San Diego, but has made San Francisco his home in every way. Aside from being a degenerate Red Sox fan, Jim has become a totally assimilated native. A connoisseur of the finest restaurants, he also has a Napa Valley wine collection second to none. But make no mistake—when it comes to getting you into the perfect small office space, Jim knows how to negotiate a deal for you that will make the landlord cry.
"Jim Walker is great for small office spaces. I contacted a lot of realtors in looking for what I wanted. Everyone except Jim found my size requirements very uninteresting and didn't provide the kind of follow up I was looking for. Jim helped me at every point in my search and was consistently well informed and reliable."
Mary Ann Miner M.D.
"I was more than satisfied with Jim Walker's service. He helped us find the perfect office space. He was thorough in his search for appropriate space. He always kept us informed throughout the process. He was professional in his interactions with fellow agents. He was there to reassure us when we became anxious or discouraged. I would recommend Mr. Walker to any individual in search of an office."
Nancy Marx, Ph.D.
"I needed a subtenant for our office space. It had to be someone I could share space with, not just someone who needed a set of keys. Jim and Alex found a suitable candidate in short order, facilitated the entire process, and charged a very reasonable fee. In the world of real estate, this was small potatoes, but I received Blue Chip service. Highly recommended."
Philip E. Bowles, President, Bowles Farming Company, Inc.
“Jim was exactly the person I needed to help me locate my new office space. I was under the gun, and had a very specific idea of what kind of office space I was looking for and Jim delivered above and beyond my expectations. I’m so happy with my new office; I would not have found such a great space without his help. Jim receives my best recommendation.”
Chris Hawkins, Hawkins Communications & Design, Inc.
“Jim (Walker) did a great job and I appreciate his patience and effort. I’m sure dealing with smaller tenants is a pain and half but one would never know by the way he handled it. We’ll be calling his firm again in two years.”
Alex Shvartsman, Mercury Lending
"Working with Jim has been one of the most essential elements of our success. He gave Hyper Raje Productions great directions and advice about business. A great location for a business is everything! I can honestly say that if we had anyone else look for our studio, we wouldn't be where we are today."
Chris "HypE" Mayrena, Hyper Raje Records
"Looking for the ideal office in downtown San Francisco can be quite a difficult task. DiChiara and Walker provided us with numerous listings that suited our specifications and led us to spaces that match our requirements. They not only found a space for us, but also made sure we were more than satisfied with our new office. DiChiara and Walker’s excellent service made the experience of looking for office spaces easier, less stressful, and rewarding."
