Templeton Walker is a successful realtor, investor, a certified personal trainer, and owns and operates the Templeton Group Arizona Real Estate, specializes in working with buyers, sellers, and investors. He has a passion for helping clients achieve their financial and life goals through real estate.  By nature, he is loyal, honest, and motivated. He works diligently to understand market trends and conditions to make sure his clients are satisfied, whether they are a first time home buyer or a high-end seller. Templeton's diligence and research ensure the best deal possible for his clients. During leisure time, Templeton enjoys spending time with his family and friends, participating in anything athletic or competitive, and reading books (usually about buying and selling real estate).

 Templeton came from nothing and was not the best kid. At the age of 18-25, he was still trying to figure out his life. He was kind-hearted, ambitious, a big thinker, and with a ton of potential but not much work. He was really wild and loves the spotlight on him. Therefore, Templeton used that energy to pivot from a hard partier to being like a potential best leader or the best mentor. But he wasn’t disciplined or mature enough to navigate his life in the right direction.  He was not investing himself sooner, but relying on the books he read until he learned to spend thousands of money to get a personal coach, mentors, and surround himself with the right people.

 Accordingly, he became intentional to pursue his passion to become an investor, so Templeton tried to become a real estate agent.  Luckily, he became the Top Salesperson of The Year for the small brokerage in his first year and has sold $5M to $6M for real estate. He strived hard because he doesn’t want to experience financial difficulties anymore. Gratefully, Templeton has been in real estate for 3 years now and has grown his wealth, achieved financial independence, and created an amazing portfolio.

 He achieved all of these because of tapping the truth and being congruent. For Templeton, the problem starts when you’re having things that are not congruent with your highest and best needs but just your way to perceived people.  It’s just a validation for your success and it doesn’t matter at all. You’re just being ego-driven and false. Templeton believes that if you’re a good human being, there is no worse feeling in your heart than feeling like you’re an impostor, feeling like you’re not living your truth or lying.

 Likewise, when you’re incongruence you’re dangerous and powerful. You vibrate at a different level and people can perceive it and feel it while bullshit vibrates at a certain level. Being anything other than yourself takes effort because to be you take no effort. It requires energy and effort and it’s exhausting to be anything other than you.

Currently, Templeton wants less for material things but more time with his family and kids. He is living on purpose with all these people that are important to him, with his philanthropy, and making a difference in the world and not just always thinking about money. The most important to him is the way his children, spouse, friends, and inner circle feel about him.  It considers a win for him.
