Michael K. Walker, Esq. / Founder, Principal
As Founder and Principal of Walker + Associates, Mike relocated to Seattle from Southern California in 2007 with a desire to bring a higher standard of professionalism to the real estate industry.
A former corporate attorney in the entertainment industry, Mike spent over ten years negotiating complex commercial transactions involving the purchase and sale of business assets. Now, Mike draws on this experience to deliver an unparalleled level of professionalism and negotiating expertise to residential clients during what is, for many, the most important financial transaction of their lives.
Mike earned degrees in Business and Law from Pepperdine University located in Malibu, California. He maintains active licenses to practice law in California and sell real estate in California and Washington. He currently lives in Bellevue, Washington and Palm Springs, California with his husband and their Golden Retriever, Barqley.
Bailey, Chief Napping Officer (2002 – 2014)
Bailey was a founding member of W+A and served proudly Chief Napping Officer. His primary duties included carrying his own leash, sharing his toys and treats, and enjoying lots of afternoon naps. After 13 years of wonderful service, Bailey retired from W+A to that great dog park in the sky in 2014.
Quincy, Chief Greeter (2015 – 2016)
Quincy joined W+A in 2015 as Chief Greeter and warmed the hearts of everyone who met him. After only a year of service, a better opportunity poached Quincy from W+A. (We suspect it was Bailey offering more money, better benefits – and the chance to play all day every day.)
Barqley, Goodwill Ambassador (2016 – Present)
Barqley joined W+A in 2016 as Goodwill Ambassador and his primary duties include welcoming new clients and sharing hugs and kisses. When he’s not working, Barqley loves swimming, chasing balls, and playing tug-of-war. He is proud to follow in the footsteps of his Uncle Bailey and Brother Quincy.
