A former professional football player and team member of the NFL Minnesota Vikings, Blair Walsh is now part of the top-producing Gambill Team at Coldwell Banker in Newport Beach. After a prolific seven years in the NFL, where he participated in First-Team All-Pro and the Pro Bowl, Blair received his salesperson license and has transitioned into a successful residential real estate career in the affluent Newport Beach region.
Blair’s NFL background has given him many unique experiences to draw from when assisting his clients. While involved with the NFL, Blair regularly negotiated high-profile contracts with different executives. Whether he was negotiating a contract extension or a free agent contract, he had to be savvy on the market analytics and trends, in addition to having keen instincts to ensure he could negotiate the best possible deal. While real estate poses different challenges, the skill set required for each industry is similar.
Perhaps his most valuable trait is the ability to perform well in high-pressure situations. To be successful in the NFL, one must perform in the most critical of moments, something synonymous with navigating the fast-paced and competitive luxury real estate market in Newport Beach.
Blair has always had an unshakable work ethic. He honed his determination while in a dedicated training program to go from high school to playing professional football at the highest level. Over 16 years later, this mindset is ingrained into his everyday life and why he believes he can achieve anything he sets his mind to. While he is no longer out on the field in a helmet, he now channels that same ambition and passion into becoming one of Newport Beach’s elite realtors.
Throughout his 10+ years living in Newport Beach, Blair has experienced living in a variety of distinct locations, including some of the most popular neighborhoods. Plus, he met numerous affluent individuals, high-powered executives, and not able coaches throughout his seven years in the NFL. This experience has given him a rare perspective of how potential clients approach Orange County real estate within the most affluent areas.
By using a combination of social media, where he generates a high engagement with more than 30,000 followers and strategic marketing plans, Blair has an advantage in showcasing listings. He also has access to state-of-the-art drone technology and professional photograph/video editing software to offer his clients the absolute best digital and print marketing to ensure they get maximum exposure.
Ultimately, Blair is a hard-working, passionate, committed, and knowledgeable realtor who intends to deliver excellent customer service to all of his clients and assisting them in maximizing profits on their property alongside his teammates.
Outside of work, Blair is an avid golfer and passionate about fitness. He also enjoys fantasy football and acting from time to time (even appearing on the popular FX sports comedy The League). Blair also fosters a long-standing commitment to his local community and helping the underserved.
