The Wall Street Journal and REAL Trends, Inc. rank Walt Danley as the top selling real estate agent in Arizona, according to its “The Thousand: 2013 Top 1,000 Real Estate Professionals” list released June 28, 2013. Danley is ranked No. 37 in the U.S. for individual sales volume, having sold more than $137.7 million in residential real estate in 2012. “The Thousand” list is comprised of third-party data and honors the top 1,000 real estate professionals and teams in the nation.

Walt Danley is the president and namesake of Scottsdale-based luxury residential real estate brokerage, Walt Danley Realty. The firm is Arizona’s affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate and boasts the largest inventory of million-dollar estates within Arizona. Danley has sold more than $2.5 billion during his over 35-year career, and has been ranked in the top one percent of real estate agents nationally every year since 1977.

“Being listed amongst the top real estate agents in the nation is an honor and very humbling,” states Danley.

Walt Danley Realty Launches Commercial Brokerage Division

Scottsdale-based luxury residential real estate brokerage Walt Danley Realty announced the formal launch of its boutique commercial brokerage division, Walt Danley Commercial.

“We chose to launch the division now because we see great opportunities,” said Tom Snyder, designated broker of Walt Danley Realty. “Across all spectrums of metro-Phoenix’s commercial real estate industry, we are experiencing a recovery cycle after several years of downturn.”

Snyder adds that unemployment is down to a four year low, new housing starts are the highest in four years and homebuilder confidence is up.

“With conditions such as record low interest rates, multifamily prices rising, considerable activity in investment grade properties and home foreclosures declining, we feel confident that now is the right time to enter the commercial real estate market,” he says.

“Our commercial division is an extension of our residential real estate brand,” says Walt Danley, president of Walt Danley Realty. “Commercial is the natural progression for us as many of our clients are investors and business owners. We look forward to servicing our clients in all of their real estate needs with our signature customer approach.”

Notably, Danley has made business decisions like this throughout his career to ensure his clients receive “white glove treatment.” When Danley was a single real estate agent, he referred business to agents outside his market area.

Then, according to Danley, rather than risk clients not receiving his high standards in service, he decided to establish a team of agents to cover a larger market area and keep that business; which later led to the founding of Walt Danley Realty.

Danley will remain at the helm of the firm’s luxury residential real estate offering, and Snyder will head its commercial division.

Snyder has experience in both commercial and residential real estate, and previously owned his own real estate brokerage for nearly 30 years. He has served as a CFO, as well as in other executive roles for national and international corporations. Snyder has serviced clients across the U.S. in site selection, planning and zoning, financial analysis, construction and leasing.

Walt Danley Commercial recently hired Guy Donahue, a real estate veteran with more than 30 years experience, as its Commercial Realtor. Previously, he was instrumental in the planning, implementing and building of the 1,000-acre master-planned community, The Ocotillo Community and Golf Course.

“It’s an honor to join such a prestigious and well-known brand,” Donahue said. “The marketing support is second to none and we’re looking forward to assisting Danley’s current clientele with their commercial real estate needs.”

Services through Walt Danley Commercial include:

• Commercial land sales

• Office building sales

• Office leasing

• Medical building sales

• Apartment sales

• Residential land sales

• Retail center sales

• Industrial land sales

• Industrial building sales

“Our commercial division will follow the same customer-centric business model that has been so successful in our residential space,” Danley added.

AREA Awards 2012: Lifetime Achievement Award

The Arizona Real Estate Achievement (AREA) Awards — selected by a panel of industry experts — honor the state’s best and brightest real estate companies, real estate agents, real estate brokers, mortgage companies, bankers, home builders, individuals who give back to the community, and those in the real estate business whose careers have left an indelible mark on the community and on the industry.

AREA AWARDS: LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Winner: Walt Danley, Walt Danley Realty

AREA Awards: Walt Danley, Walt Danley RealtyWalt Danley began his career in real estate in 1977 and has single-handedly grown his business into a multi-million dollar luxury boutique firm in Scottsdale. In 2006, Danley was named one of the “35 Most Influential in Luxury Real Estate” by Unique Homes Magazine, a list that included Donald Trump and Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke. That same year, Danley sold more real estate than any other agent in the state of Arizona.

In 2011, The Walt Danley Group — previously affiliated with Coldwell Banker and Realty Executives — established its own brokerage firm and renamed itself Walt Danley Realty. This independence allowed Walt Danley Realty to become an exclusive affiliate with Christie’s International Real Estate, a move that has given Danley’s team of agents unprecedented exposure on a global level. The firm continues to earn some of real estate’s most coveted awards and consistently completes the highest dollar amount of transactions compared with other Phoenix-area realtors.

Walt Danley Realty is considered an industry leader among real estate professionals due to Danley’s longevity and inspired success for more than 30 years in the residential real estate industry. Specializing in finding talented agents with varied backgrounds, Walt Danley Realty has helped former CEOs, businessmen and businesswomen find their passion in the real estate industry by mentoring them. The agents are each involved in professional and charitable organizations where they serve as panel members, board members, event organizers and volunteers. As a leader in the industry, Walt Danley Realty is a go-to source among media members, both on the regional and national level, who want the highest level of knowledge and insight into the local market.
