Business Development Manager
Home Shop Properties, Inc.
Walkiria’s entrepreneurial spirit has introduced her to many different types of businesses and industries. She found her way in an industry that allows her to use her business experience and charming personality, real estate! Alongside her long time business and life partner, Johan Lopez, Walkiria opened a real estate company in Downtown Methuen. Her role as Business Development and Talent Acquisition at their seven-year-old real company provides her with the opportunity to train, manage and mentor 14 real estate agents.
Before Home Shop Properties, there were other start-ups; JoWa Bar & Lounge, Walki’s Closet and Kikiboom.com are some of the businesses Walkiria today attributes her success to. These businesses from a bar and restaurant to an online women’s clothing store, have taught Walkiria that perseverance, a strong work ethic and the importance of a good support system are all an integral part of an entrepreneur’s success.
Today at their Methuen Real estate office, she pushes for sustainable homeownership and is an advocate for educating first time homebuyers with the buying process and the responsibilities that come with homeownership so that they may enjoy their home for many years to come.
Walkiria is a proud Central Catholic High School and Boston College Alumna. She serves as member on a number of local non-profit boards. She’s also very proud of her Merrimack Valley roots, she grew up in Lawrence, works in Methuen and lives in Haverhill.
