Walter Bering Bio

Successful Realtors, like the best houses, are built on a strong foundation, and that's why so many buyers and sellers choose Walter Bering to represent them in the purchase or sale of their most precious commodity...their home. At the pinnacle of a real estate career that spans 38 years, Walter has been a consistent top producer with Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty. He has been the company's #1 Producer in 2007, 2011, 2013 and 2017. He is a consistent Circle of Excellence Award winner and a member of the Hall of Fame. Year after year, the Houston Business Journal has recognized Walter for his participation in some of the largest home sale transactions in Houston.

Walter specializes in Houston's most prominent neighborhoods, including River Oaks, Tanglewood, West University, Southampton, and the Memorial Villages. Since many of these homeowners also own country properties. Walter has expanded his reach to outlying areas such as Round Top, Texas.

Marketing luxury properties with a personal touch is Walter's specialty. Walter believes that there are no two transactions alike. We are moving people…not homes. Each transaction is as unique as the personalities involved. Secrets of Walter's success are his creative marketing and advertising approach, luxury branding, persistent follow-up, experienced negotiator, superior market knowledge, and many valued personal and business relationships. With these qualities, it is no wonder that his reputation in the Houston residential real estate market is iconic.

In a sense, Walter's real estate career reaches back six generations to the first Bering's who emigrated from Germany in the 1840s. The family arrived in Galveston and then Houston via the bayou, intending to take an oxcart on to Llano County. "The story goes," laughs Walter, "that either the wagon broke or the ox did not understand German, so the family settled in Houston." Whatever the reason, it was a fortuitous beginning for a family career in Houston real estate.

The Bering's purchased a farm in what is now West Houston for 50 cents an acre, bordered by dirt roads which, today, are Westheimer Road, Post Oak Boulevard, Voss Road, and Interstate Highway 10. The family was instrumental in the expansion of Houston's western suburbs, planning and developing subdivisions in the Memorial area and several sections of Tanglewood, areas where Walter built his early real estate career.

Some of Walter's first memories are of the realty business started by his grandfather and father, Bering Realty Corp. As a teenager, Walter mowed the lawns of the company's listings and served as the company janitor. "As a child, I learned my first telephone skills when the office telephones would roll over to our house after hours," he says. After graduating from Tulane University in 1979, Walter joined the family firm, becoming a top sales agent as well as the office manager, relocation director, and, eventually, the designated broker. Walter's 16 years of experience at Bering Realty Corp. were excellent training for his successful career at Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty.
