Recently awarded Coldwell Banker’s top award, the Society of Excellence, given to only a fraction of top agents throughout the country, Barbara ranks in the top 25 agents in all of Southern California and the number one in the Inland Empire. Her energetic and enthusiastic approach to real estate and in fact all aspects of her life make her an exceptional agent who benefits from an extensive referral network. She gives 110% to assure her client’s needs are met and she derives as much pleasure helping a couple buy their first home as she does selling the Temecula valley’s finest estates and ranches.
Barbara is a tireless promoter of the area and its benefits, having lived here since 1989 when there was only one stop light in the entire valley. All three of her daughters attended local schools and Barbara was involved in the parent/teachers association for many years. She also gives back to the community where she was a founder of the local chapter of the YMCA and belongs to the Assistance League Pros, providing help to victims of domestic violence.
Barbara does not consider herself a salesperson, despite her award winning results. Her style of business is one based on service and the personal satisfaction she derives from seeing someone obtain a home of their dreams. You could say that she sells dreams rather than houses and that would be more to the point. If you work with Barbara, be prepared to have a friend in the neighborhood who will introduce you to others who have chosen the Temecula valley, and to help make you feel right at home.

Licensed since 1975 and a broker since 1977, Scott has had a multi-faceted career in Southern California real estate that is extraordinary by any standards. Spanning three recessions and many changing markets, Scott has gained valuable insight into the nuances of market shifts from buyer’s to seller’s markets and back again. While many new agents are learning about these changes for the first time, clients of the Walker Advantage Team can benefit from the depth of experience Scott brings to the table.
Scott had a storied career as a partner in a new home sales and marketing company representing many of Southern California’s most high profile projects from San Diego to Santa Barbara, selling over $1 billion and 7,000 individual homes and condominiums. As a member of the Institute for Residential Marketing (MIRM), Scott earned experience encompassing knowledge of construction, staging, landscaping, financing, incentives and professional advertising. He has brought many of these unique specialties to the resale brokerage side of the business to the benefit of his clients.
Shifting gears, Scott became an owner/partner in a Coldwell Banker franchise in the Los Angeles/Orange County area that grew to four offices and over 200 agents. As an owner of one of the top 25 companies in the United States, Scott networked with the best brokers and owners in the world as well as the leaders of Coldwell Banker, the premier brand in real estate today. The knowledge gained is not standard office meeting fair, but leading edge, industry changing concepts and strategic planning. Scott sold his interest in the company to put all his efforts into the Walker Advantage Team.
Having sold homes throughout Southern California, Scott, wife Barbara and their three daughters fell to the attractions of the then small community of Temecula/Murrieta. Scott played polo, rode horses on the local trails, hiked and biked through the foothills, played a little golf and owned a vineyard, truly living the lifestyle he elected to sell.
Dina has worked for the Walker Advantage Team since 1999, first as an assistant and office administrator and later as a buyers agent and internet referral director. Over the years she has acquired the skills necessary to understand the details involved in a real estate transaction over and above opening an escrow. Her office background and computer skills serve her clients well because she maintains constant communication with updates on available properties, and status on existing transactions. As a buyers specialist and long time resident, Dina knows the inventory of the Temecula valley like no other. She prides herself on staying on top of available properties in both the new home subdivisions and the resales in our planned communities. If you want to learn about an area, develop a long distance relationship with a knowledgeable agent without feeling pressured, yet comfortable that you have a can-do person at the other computer terminal, Dina and the Walker Advantage Team are your internet connection to Southwest Riverside County.
Born and raised in Southern California, Brian was the son of a custom home builder and as such was exposed to real estate at an early age. He became a top producing realtor in 1987 and represented buyers and sellers throughout the southland for nearly ten years before going into the building side of the business where he split his time between commercial properties and custom homes and remodeling. For the next 20 years he gained invaluable insight into what buyer’s look for in a home and what it cost to produce. This background coupled with 20 years here in the Temecula/Murrieta Valley serves his clients well now, as he has rejoined the ranks of real estate agents and is a proud member of the Walker Advantage Team at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. Both buyers and sellers stand to gain a lot from Brian’s experience as he delights in helping make real estate a positive experience for his clients.
