Group History – Dupont Walker Group Legacy with Coldwell Banker Real Estate
With a BA from the University of Utah and a Master’s degree from Stanford University, Sharon Dupont taught French at Arizona State University – and when she transitioned into real estate, it was the very same listening skills that helped her to become one of the most successful luxury agents in Arizona history.
Her achievements are numerous, including being a member of the Coldwell Banker Real Estate Hall of Fame since its inception, the Phoenix Board President’s Roundtable, Scottsdale Board of REALTORS ® Lifetime Member, and being a member of the Real Estate Foundation.
Building her business, Sharon headed a team of agents operating at the time as The Sharon Dupont Group. As an award-winning and celebrated Coldwell Banker real estate agent and a very successful business owner, it took Sharon several years to decide to bring a partner into the business, but after careful consideration as to who could carry on her legacy, she chose Wendy Walker.
A high achiever, Wendy proved herself to be an astute sales leader whose professionalism and warmth helped her work her way up in the business under the guidance of Sharon.
The Dupont Walker Group continued to flourish as its two principal partners, Sharon and Wendy, nurtured agents on their team and helped clients ‘open the door’ to their dream home.
The changing real estate market and changing lives of the two partners led to Wendy taking on a larger role and the decision to promote Wendy Walker as the steward of the Dupont Walker Group, as evidenced by the new logo. This change reflects the evolution of this dynamic team and pays respect to the legacy to top luxury real estate agent and icon, Sharon Dupont.
Sharon Dupont has achieved the type of success that many other agents dream of and while she still actively services long-time clients – many of whom have become personal friends – she feels grateful and satisfied that she has fulfilled her professional goals and therefore, has stepped down from daily operations.
Wendy continues to represent the finest properties and it was a natural evolution to update the logo to represent expanding her focus to other markets including Beverley Hills, Malibu, Palm Desert, La Jolla, Santa Barbara, San Diego and Chicago.
