More About Me

My name is Bob Walter. I am a Coldwell Banker agent in Elk Grove. I love helping people sell and buy homes and try to treat them the way I wish I was treated as a consumer.

Communities I Serve

I have lived in the Elk Grove area since 1985 and I am extremely familiar with the market in Sacramento as well as communities such as Folsom, Rancho Cordova, El Dorado Hills, Citrus Heights, Orangevale, Fair Oaks and much of the rest of El Dorado and Placer counties. Moreover, if you prefer an agent who is based in those communities -- or virtually anyplace else in the country and much of the world -- I can help you hand-pick a top-notch agent who undoubtedly will serve your needs.

Personal Background

Prior to joining Coldwell Banker Realty, Bob Walter worked for decades as a columnist, reporter and editor for newspapers in Tulare, Clovis, San Luis Obispo, Modesto and Sacramento.

As a Sacramento Bee business reporter for more than 10 years, he specialized in residential and commercial real estate and development. In his role as a columnist in The Bee's regional sections, he became a familiar face in neighborhoods from Elk Grove to Folsom, and throughout Sacramento and El Dorado Counties.

Walter comes from a short line of Realtors. His mother was a broker-owner for many years in the Bay Area and his father held sales and brokers licenses.

Walter has lived in the Elk Grove area since 1985 and has been in the Camden Passage neighborhood with his wife and two grown children since 1991. The family has attended Sun Grove Community Church almost since its inception and Walter coached his children, along with hundreds of other Elk Grove youngsters, in softball and baseball since they were six years old.

Community Involvement

I have coached hundreds of youngsters in baseball and softball leagues around Elk Grove since 1999, when my daughter turned 5, and have played in recreational softball leagues even longer.

My family has attended Sun Grove Community Church almost since its inception in 1991 and we have been immersed in Sun Grove and Elk Grove Unified School District activities approximately forever.


This is from one of my current clients, past clients and favorite clients, all rolled into one (or two). I helped them sell a rental last year and later played a crucial role in getting them into a wonderful home on five acres in the country. Perfect for training hunting dogs!

Bob Walter worked his magic on selling our rental house. He was professional and gave us accurate advice about what we needed to do to sell this house. He was able to get great photos that showed the highlights of this property. We were blown away by the house selling in two days! We had multiple offers to choose from and we accepted an offer that was over the asking price. Our neighbors were pleased to see that this sale helped raise the value of their properties as well.
Bob also helped us buy our dream property in the country. We had to compete with other offers, but Bob used his knowledge and skill to get us this property. His connections to the lender and being able to work tactfully with the seller's realtor were integral to closing the deal on our dream home!

Thank you for making our dreams come true!
