Walt is a natural born deal maker and entrepreneur. Already working part time at 12 years old, Walt quit his job in an upholstery shop when the boss declined giving him a raise on his $1/hour pay. When he asked his parents for a loan to start his own upholstery business, they got a second mortgage and Walt received his $10,000 in start-up capital. He went on to manage the business through high school, and sold it 10 times his original investment before heading off to college in Northern California.
After college, Walt immersed himself in the commercial real estate business with a development firm in California. But, his entrepreneurial spirit prevailed and Walt started out on his own. Building Diversified Partners over the years has been a life-long passion for Walt. His professional career and success is fueled by his tireless work ethic and his tremendous attention to detail.
