Roberta “Robbie” Walker brings 19 years of experience and leadership in real estate sales, development, commercial and residential property management. She has thrived in non-profit community and economic development and brings a cross-sector perspective having managed teams in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. During her tenure with Southwest Housing Solutions, she managed both residential and commercial mission-driven projects, fostering neighborhood economic development in Southwest Detroit and throughout the region.
Most recently, Walker led a team as a Realty Specialist at the Army Corps of Engineers managing large-scale, multi-million-dollar projects for the federal government. In that role she expertly navigated bureaucratic processes, managed negotiations and contracts, federal acquisition of property, infrastructure development and stakeholder engagement.
Walker earned a Bachelor of Arts in Business and Managerial Economics from the University of Michigan, Dearborn. She is a member of the Michigan Association of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, Greater Metropolitan Association of Realtors, previous Board of Directors member of the West Bloomfield Optimist Club and is a licensed real estate broker.
Known affectionately as Robbie, she is passionate about the economic power of real estate, particularly in underserved communities. While Walker has managed many million-dollar projects, she is particularly proud of her work matching small-scale entrepreneurs with commercial spaces, and many homebuyers with the homes of their dreams.
