Our Company Culture

At Walker & Dunlop, you’ll find more than a workplace. You’ll find a professional home.

Invested in your future—and fulfillment

If you’re looking for an opportunity to be empowered, become your best self, and see the results of your work contribute to shared success, you’ve come to the right company.

Across Walker & Dunlop’s 28 locations, you’ll find our employees collaborating on projects and business goals, progressing in their careers, volunteering in their communities, and supporting each other personally and professionally. We work together to achieve aggressive goals that we wouldn’t be able to achieve individually. It’s that camaraderie that makes our people so special, and makes colleagues feel more like family.

“What I love most about Walker & Dunlop, and my team specifically, is the genuine concern about your overall well-being as a person and a friend, not just an employee. This company is a family that truly takes care of its own.”

Ashton Monacelli

Company leaders set the tone through their words and actions. They keep employees in the loop about company strategy, goals, and growth. They drive a culture of mentorship, transparency, and support you ll feel every day—from your core responsibilities to your longer-term career development, through each and every interaction you have.

With our low turnover, high tenure, countless promotions from within, numerous employee referrals, and significant year-over-year compensation increases, it’s no surprise that Fortune Magazine has named Walker & Dunlop among its best places to work five times. And we’re just getting started.

We Believe in the “Play Hard” Part, Too

At Walker & Dunlop, taking the time to connect, recharge, and celebrate is always on the agenda.

Always on Our Game

W&D continues to be at the top in its field. Our rec softball team took to the field to prove they are #1, and won the league championship in their inaugural year–together as a team.

Company-wide Bonding

Annual events like our summer outings, year-round office socials, volunteer activities, and friendly costume contests help build strong connections with your coworkers.

Annual Extravaganzas

Cap off each year with a company-wide gathering–all expenses paid–with 3 days of training, team-building, and a holiday gala at sites like the National Portrait Gallery.

While the company has grown exponentially, the close-knit family and culture of Walker & Dunlop remains the same, and the employees are there for you when you need them. I can’t imagine working anywhere else!”
