Neil Walter is CEO of ERA Brokers Consolidated, a real estate brokerage with nine offices between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City and over 400 agents and staff. The firm uses a proprietary technology platform called ARTI to publish monthly market research and manage more than 1,600 property units for its clients.
Walter also serves as CEO of NAI Excel, which focuses on commercial and investment real estate. He specializes in special use assets, investment properties, development land and REO properties. Walter is a charter holder with the CFA Society of Salt Lake and the CFA Society of Nevada.
In 2019, Walter wrote a blog for RISMedia’s Housecall entitled “3 Ways to Help Investors Create Value Without Waiting on the Real Estate Market.” He recommended that real estate agents and advisors emphasize to investors the benefits of following a consistent, long-term strategy; focusing on properties that have been on the market for a long time and have been overlooked; and encouraging clients to pursue value-added strategies, such as updating, improving and repositioning properties.
Walter taught finance and economics at Dixie State University. Before pursuing a career in real estate, he worked on the Natural Gas and Power Trade Floor at ConocoPhillips, where he built risk management models and priced structured products. He worked at a tech startup before attending graduate school.
Walter has served on the boards of directors of two Utah charter schools. He is also a member of the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Nominating Committee.
