Shirley Walker

Welcome Home

Shirley was born in Jamaica and moved to London, England as a teenager. A chance to study in Seattle, Washington brought her to the States. After receiving her Bachelors and then Masters in Hospital Administration from the University of Washington, Shirley moved to Chicago.  While working as a hospital administrator Shirley would dabble as a real estate investor restoring investment properties in the city, and she fell in love with Real Estate. This love has led her to her 16+ year career as a real estate agent.

Shirley does residential sales and leasing all over Chicago and still does a lot of business in medical office leasing and sales. She has found a way to stay connected to her roots in hospital administration and her passion for real estate in general. Shirley prides herself in her attentiveness, follow-through and superior customer service. Shirley has lived in the Hyde Park/Kenwood area for the past 30 years and has been recognized by CAR as a high producer in the neighborhood she calls home.

“[In a home] You’re making an investment in what could be the most important asset you’ll ever have. The right moment is when you know where you’re going to live for a while, when you find the home that fits your family, and when it’s at level that fits in with your income and ability to make a down payment and then I would get a very long mortgage… 30-year mortgage and the rate will be fabulous, and there is no sense waiting if those conditions exist."
