Happy Clients Make Us HAPPY!
They have helped my closest friends, my family and also myselfin the past. The ability to come up with a game plan and stick toa schedule is something that is surprising in this day and age.Execution of said plan and exceeding expectations that are laidout in the beginning, only add to the fact that anything RealEstate related, I know who to recommend and who to call first.When I reached out and explained my situation, I had alreadycome to terms with expectations on the result of selling theproperty. There was never any discussions of “How Much” Iwould make. There was only discussions of “If I follow the planlaid out on Day 1” the end result would meet or exceed myexpectations. I have spent weeks trying to write this since thefirst email about filling out this survey and I have yet to findwords for the outcome of my sale. If you would have told me theday before I reached out to inquire what I should do with theproperty, that the property would have sold for the amount it did,I would have laughed. I would have laughed really hard. Fromthe first moment there was confidence in the plan, confidence inthe execution, even when I had zero confidence. They sawsomething I did not see. I still can’t believe it.They set a standard in customer care. The first question in anyconversation is “How are you doing?”. They understand there isnothing easy about the process, but they never let you worryabout it. They exude confidence in the way they talk, the waythey dress and their over all ability to stay organized even whenI was not.My overall experience was amazing. I believe the outcome couldnot have gone this way with anybody else. The winning Factor inthis Equation is the Burke factor. If it’s not in your equation, donot expect Outstanding Results.
Jonathan kept us level headed when he needed us to do so. He never let us lose sight of the big picture during the process of selling our home. Wear every happy with the results and would choose Jonathan as our realtor.
Jonathan and Kristi were excellent. They went above and beyond to not only complete our sale seamlessly, but also make the process as comfortable for us as possible. They understood and flexed to the demands of our schedule, and made every effort accommodate us and get us the best deal. We found our realtors for life!
When we first decided we were going to sell our house, I had begun asking friends for recommendations as we had a terrible experience from our last REALTOR. Jonathan Burke’s name came up so I called and spoke to him and I was immediately sold. He was well organized, knowledgeable, and I could tell, he was meticulous about the way he approached everything about this business. Every time I needed to speak with him, I could do so. Anytime I had anxieties or fears, he would alleviate them. He got us way more money for our house than I would have ever expected! I was extremely busy during this time and when I stopped by the house to do some work, my realtor was in overalls cutting the grass and doing yard work! Who does that? The guy found his calling. He went above and beyond for us and I am so grateful for him helping us during such a stressful time. I cannot speak highly enough of Jonathan Burke. I found not only a wonderful REALTOR, but a lifelong friend as well. “
My husband and I are so pleased we picked the Burke Team to help us with our most recent home purchase. Jonathan has a passion for his trade and a communicative personality to match. Our purchase was a very tricky short sale, and Jonathan showed compassion and commitment 100% to the end. I would recommend anyone to use the Burke team as their personal real estate agent for their next home buy or sale! Thank you again for helping us begin the next chapter of our lives.
What makes Jonathan Burke stand out for me was, the fact that he knew I was maintaining two households while waiting for my house to sell. He took it upon himself, to cut and landscape my yard, so that I could have more time to spend with my family, instead of running back and forth between houses on the weekend. I can never thank him enough for what he has done for us!
Jonathan was my husband’s first and only choice for brokers, which was fine, because I asked my husband to find one. Given my work and home schedule, I wouldn’t be the one always available for communication and it was important to have someone with whom my husband got along well. When Jonathan first arrived at our home to discuss selling our property, he was well prepared with a profile of our neighborhood and recent sales. Honestly, selling and buying property wasn’t on our schedule until another 2 years but when he showed us how easy it was and assured us of his aid along the way, we took a chance and now we’re so glad we did. He helped us sell our first home and kept us well informed about each stage of the process. He connected us with his loan officer team, Pete Griffin and Leslie Query-Jackson, who were just as helpful as he was. He didn’t mind rolling his sleeves up and helping my husband with any repairs needed to get the property ready to show and after the inspection. He’s a family man so he made adjustments to accommodate our whole family even when that meant holding my daughter on a break from home improvements, or entertaining my son while we signed documents. Even in the midst of familiarity as Jonathan and my husband have known each other from grade school, Jonathan maintained his professionalism which was paramount to me. This process from start to finish took about 6 weeks, that’s just awesome! I will continue to recommend Jonathan to any and everyone I know who is in need of a broker.
He went above and beyond to ensure the sale went as smoothly as possible. He supported me through the entire process. As it was long and got uncomfortable at times due to extenuating circumstances. He remained professional at all times and was a pleasure to work with. When I buy a home in the future, I will look to him and will also refer friends to him.
Fantastic to work with, creative in coming up ideas for helping our rather complicated situation. Really appreciate the level of involvement and hard work out into helping us get our house sold and get into another house.
I choose Jonathan Burke to represent me when buying my first home. He came recommended and I quickly identified why. Jonathan listened to what we were looking for and thoroughly explained our options. He assisted with negotiations, lending options and closing. He helped us get ready to move and didn’t hesitate to give us helpful tips to save us time and money along the way. He has become a trusted friend and he has shown me how a true professional represents himself and his family.
Back in Virginia from Hawaii. Been looking for a home for months, and I could not find a Realtor that could or would consistently help me. Mr. Jonathan Burke was the first to really listen to me. He worked hard and never gave up even when I almost did due to unavoidable circumstances on VA loan requirements. The best part of him is he was always on our side to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. I highly recommend Mr. Burke to anyone who wants a realtor who takes them seriously, cares that you, the client, gets exactly the home you are looking for, that is within your budget, rather than quickly trying to “sell” you for a commission. Sir, thank you! Your generosity and professionalism made as homeowners in a few weeks. My wife is very much happy in a house she calls now home.
Much more than a realtor, working with Jonathan Burke is like working with an old friend. Jonathan Burke has sold and will continue to sell many houses however, we felt like we were his only customer throughout the entire process. A veteran, family man, and tremendous realtor, he was truly committed to us during this process and I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone needing a realtor. It is difficult to describe “care” in business but we all gravitate towards people and businesses that care. Regardless of the outcome, Jonathan Burke cares. He embodies service before self which is an inspiring attribute regardless of the manner it shows itself. There was a 20 minute time period during this home buying process where it almost fell through. Jonathan Burke never missed a beat. within 20 minutes he talked to two lawyers, both title companies, the county records, three new homes to look at, and set up appointments to walk through two rental properties. He cares and will be a part our your home buying success. Jonathan Burke exceeded all expectations during this process. His attention to detail, care and concern for us throughout the duration of the process provide peace of mind from the start. We purchased a home from the other side of the country in a quickly selling market and there were times he toured houses for us and sent us live video so we could see the home and make a timely decision. He is on your side and saved us thousands of dollars throughout this process. I hope he is still selling houses when my children buy their homes. Working with the Century 21 Redwood Realty Stafford staff felt like a family.
I requested that Jonathan find prospective buyers by any means other than an Open House. After a quick walk-through and visual inspection, Jonathan got to work with creating the advertising materials. He did such an excellent job with spreading the word, that buyers were requesting a showing even before the For Sale sign was in the yard. Each week there were prospective buyers and realtors stopping by and the brochures available to them were top notch. The photos and descriptions were so nice in the brochure, I almost considered keeping the house (almost)! Another thing of note is that near the end of the sale process, I went on vacation out of the country. I informed Jonathan at the start and he took control from the beginning so I could focus on packing up the house, packing for my trip with zero concerns and 100% confidence that I was in good hands. Jonathan made sure all my closing documents were signed before I left the country and that I had a power of attorney so he could take care of anything that may have come up while I was away. Jonathan sent me weekly personal video recordings on the status of the process and we had a video call while I was out of the country to celebrate virtually when the house sold! I can’t praise Jonathan enough for his top notch level of professionalism in every form of correspondance. Truly Presidential quality! The personal video updates he provides are a unique and fantastic touch that I have never seen from any other agent. Jonathan handled everything superbly even while I was out of the country. That speaks volumes to his trustworthiness and personal approach to his client’s needs. I have recommended Jonathan to my family and friends and I will definitely work with him again for my next sale or purchase.
I don’t have enough words to explain just how amazing The Burke Team is. From the moment we met Jonathan, we clicked and he really understood what we were looking for. From that point, he helped us through every step on the path to buying a home. He explained everything thoroughly, was available almost all the time to answer questions, get information for us, and sometimes even just to chat about how excited we were. He’s kind, friendly and extremely professional. I’ve rarely seen such amazing customer service. I highly recommend Jonathan and the team he has built to help homebuyers (new and seasoned) with all of their needs.
I have to say, that my experience with Jonathan Burke was nothing short of fabulous. From my first meeting with Jonathan to the last signature at closing he has been the best, most thoughtful, informed and professional real estate agent I have ever worked with. I should not imply that his care ended at the closing table because Jonathan has continued to care for me and my family even since our closing a month ago. Jonathan used his exceptional negotiating skills to get me a home that appraised for over $8,000 more than what I paid, and he got all of my closing costs paid and a new carpet. He did mention that this does not happen every time, but I will tell all of my friends and family members to call Jonathan Burke for all of their Real Estate needs.
Jonathan and his wife, Kristi, are an amazing team. Jonathan was extremely helpful every step of the way and went above and beyond to get things done as well as make it as seamless as possible. The skill and expertise of this team are absolutely outstanding. They truly look out for and treat you like a person, not just a number. Their team is absolutely outstanding. I would hands down recommend them for any home buying or selling needs you have.
Looking for value? Jonathan and his wife, Kristi, are a force for good. I am so impressed by their commitment to service and consistent outreach. They understand that if you take care of PEOPLE, people will take care of your BUSINESS. It is an honor to work with professionals like Jonathan and Kristi. I highly recommend their quality services!
I couldn’t ask for better service. Jonathan and Kristi know the real estate business inside and out, they know the local Fred/Spotsy/Stafford area like nobody else, and they know who to call for everything you need to make your sale/purchase easy. I will use them again, and you should too.
I honestly cannot say enough good things about the Burke team. They will work tirelessly for you!
Really enjoyed working with the Burkes. Thanks for all your help and guidance on the purchase of my first home.
Jonathan helped us negotiate our lease for our new commercial space. He was instrumental in getting things done when the listing agent was dragging their feet. He was there to open the space up every time I needed to get in and meet with the contractor. I couldn’t ask for a better agent. We will be using him for all of our real estate needs, residential and commercial alike.
Kristi and Jonathan really looked out for me during this first time home buyer adventure. I’m pretty picky and they handled it with positive attitudes! Now I’m watching my brand new home being built and really couldn’t be happier. They helped a young professional understand what home buying is, and made sure every “i” was dotted and “t” was crossed before I signed anything. I am forever grateful!
Being a military family and first-time home buyers, the very prospect of purchasing a house seemed very daunting. Luckily for our family, Jonathan and Kristi were there to make everything as stress-free as possible. They didn’t just try to get us into a house, they took the time to get to know us as people, learn what’s important and place us in a community and home that is more than we could have ever hoped for. They fought for us and our needs & wants every step of the way without ever compromising or questioning our decisions. What’s more, their good nature did not stop once the papers were signed. Being a military family themselves, they understand how daunting it can be moving to a new town where you don’t know anybody or anything; which is why they provided us with locations for local grocery stores, fun spots and gave us a full tour of the downtown area. We did not just acquire realtors; we have gained lifelong friends and any military members moving to the N. Virginia area should look no further.
Outstanding team! Kristi and Jonathan worked with us on the purchase of our first home, and the process couldn’t have been smoother! I was a difficult customer with many questions on our first home purchase and they were very helpful in explaining the process as we continued through it. When the time comes to sell, I will definitely be calling The Burke Team!
If I could give The Burke Team more than 5 stars, I would. Within 3 days they were able to do more than everyone we had dealt with in the past few months combined. Excellent across the board.
I couldn’t be more pleased with the results from the Burke Team. I had my house listed with another local realtor for 3 months and had no calls. As soon as I hired Kristi and Jonathan, that changed. They made great suggestions for improvements, got professional pictures and a video done and on the internet. The house quickly rented once these energetic, professional realtors came on board. They have even followed up with me after we got the renter in place just to see how things are going. When I decided to sell after my renter, Jonathan and Kristi helped us sell the home, and lifted a huge burden off our shoulders. Great experience.
Jonathan Burke is by far one of the best real estate agents that I have ever worked with. I had an excellent experience, I say this knowing I have worked in Title and Escrow, as well as construction. He is professional, knowledgeable , trustworthy. With the recent loss of my father, and my fiance selling his home through a different agency, Jonathan made this a smooth and stress free experience!!
Jonathan Burke did a great job, was consistently attentive, patient, and timely. His knowledge and experience were much appreciated. The sale wouldn’t have happened without him, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.
Jonathan Burke and The Burke Team are hands-down the best realtors in the business. They consistently met and exceeded my expectations of the home buying process. I felt comfortable and confident that Jonathan was looking out for my best interests above all else. I trusted him to only show us homes that he himself would live in and he did so. His steadfast dedication to us was impressive and I will not hesitate to recommend him to any friends or relatives who are looking to sell or purchase a home or property. Not only Jonathan, but The Burke Team as a whole were phenomenal to work with. If we ever need to sell or purchase another property, I refuse to work with anyone other than The Burke Team!! They’re the best!! This is worth repeating...Jonathan Burke and The Burke Team are the best realtors in the business. They are the gold standard by which I will judge all other realtors I may encounter.
Jonathan took a personal interest in me and what I was looking for in a new residence. He treated me like family and spent the time needed to make sure I found the property that would suit my needs,within the price range I was looking, and the location that would meet my needs. They are an exceptional couple and I am glad they were my real estate team.
Jonathan and Kristi Burke were very professional from start to finish and really took the time out to make sure that I felt like I was their number one priority when finding a home. I am beyond impressed with Jonathan and Kristi and their level of professionalism, I will continue to use their services when looking for or selling future homes. Jonathan and Kristi answered ALL of my questions and made sure to return every single phone call that I asked, I have never received such professional service else where my experience was painless and I completely trust that these two agents will provide me with excellent future service!
As a first time homebuyer who has dealt with realtors in the past, I was nervous based on my past experiences. Previously, we had put off buying a home due to horrible realtors. 2 years later we decided to try it again and were recommended to Jonathan and Kristi Burke by my brother. I took the bait and what a big catch. Jonathan and Kristi Burke are not only the best realtors out there but they are wonderful people who truly care about YOU. The fact that they are FAMILY oriented broke the ice for me right away. I felt great in their hands and I saw them ALL the time. They were Knowledgeable, Friendly, Professional, Responsive, Caring and at times Funny. They made sure that we unequivocally understood everything before, during, and after. When I called, they answered. If they didn’t answer, I always heard back from them quickly. When looking at homes they would have an eye for things that I totally did not see! In turn, we appreciated them even more. They looked out for us and made this a walk in the park. I will use them for rest of my life and I will encourage friends, family, and co-workers to do the same. They changed my stereotypical outlook I had on realtors based on my previous experiences. Truly a diamond in the rough. Phenomenal experience! Thanks so much! We look forward to our future with you.
We want to personally thank Jonathan and Kristi Burke for their awesome support to find the right house for us. We think you two are the best in the Area. You both worked tirelessly to help us find our house. From searching to taking us around the area, understanding our needs, and just that perfect help in getting us where we need to be on finding our next house, you and your wife make a great team. I would be happy to recommend you and your wife for anyone needing to find that perfect place! Anyone wants recommendations on why you two are perfect, have them contact me anytime and I would gladly tell them why your team is the best. Thanks from our house to yours.
Jonathan and Kristi were absolutely fantastic! They listened intently to what my husband and I were looking for in a property and they did not fail us at all. We were kept informed through every step of the process. Our calls were always answered and returned in a very prompt manner. Jonathan and Kristi are the epitome of professionalism. Jonathan gives sound and realistic advice to his clients. This is a dream team, folks. They have the knowledge, motivation, and a network that rivals anything I have every seen before. Jonathan and Kristi went above and beyond for my husband and I. Usually after the sale of the house, realtors disappear, but not the Burke Team. They stay in contact to make sure all is well. I am over the moon about these two. You absolutely will not be disappointed with this team.
The Burke Team has been absoultely outstanding and helpful in every step of the way, throughout our process of buying a home. Without Jonathan’s skill and expertise we would have been completely clueless with the little details when purchasing a home. I couldn’t believe how much he helped us and truly made it all about the customer. He was a great negotiator and made sure he did everything in our favor to give us everything and more!!! At the end of the day, Jonathan was not just our realtor, but also our friend. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better. His strive, dedication, and willingness are what makes this team #1!!!!! Anyone looking into buying a house CALL THEM! Thank you so much for all that you do & did for our first home!
Jonathan and Kristi are the most honest, sincere and caring people I have met. They are the definition of character and integrity. They live their faith, love their family and community and will give you the shirts off their back. They are the “salt of the earth” kind of people. I have every confidence in their ability to help their clients with all real estate needs, and that they will go above and beyond in all circumstances.
My best buddy from the Army, Jonathan, and his beautiful wife, Kristi, are dedicated professionals. They are an inspiration to me that if you put your mind to it, YOU CAN SUCCEED!!!
Jonathan Burke and his wife have a very unique business. Not your typical realtor… If you need to sell your house, buy a house or just need some information , please get in contact with him -he provides a service that is very rare!!!
