WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

5 STARS
My husband and I wholeheartedly give Burke & Butler Real Estate five stars! As first time homebuyers, working with Jen and Jeanine was all that we hoped our first experience would be. From our initial Zoom discussion to closing, they were gracious, professional, knowledgeable, punctual, friendly, and extremely thorough. They skillfully managed our trepidations and questions, which helped grow our confidence throughout the process. Jen and Jeanine worked as a team to be available to us when we needed them and to provide expertise and reassurance through a sometimes frustrating process. They were patient as we refined our search and were supremely organized in arranging COVID-safe viewings after work and on weekends. During already stressful and abnormal times, they found a way to make it all feel easy. They also connected us with reliable and trustworthy finance folks and tradespeople who we will use again without reservation. We happily recommend Jen and Jeanine to anyone braving the Seattle real estate market!

Buying and selling a home can be a stressful experience, but combined with the early stages of a pandemic, well, there just aren't any words for that. My husband and I bought a home in March north of Seattle just as the state was closing down. That meant we had to list our house amidst a lot of uncertainty.

Having known both Jen and Jeanine prior to putting our Seattle house on the market, it was an easy decision to choose them to handle the transaction as they are both individuals we trust and admire. They gave us their full attention and worked tirelessly with us to get our home listed in record time. But more importantly, there was a tremendous amount of hand-holding and reassurance from both of them as we all entered a housing market never before experienced. They kept us up-to-date with everything that was developing in the real estate market, which was changing daily. We would never have made it through the process with our sanity intact without the herculean assistance of Jen and Jeanine!

Much to our extreme pleasure and relief our home sold quickly with no hiccups. We couldn't be happier with the full range of services we received from this duo and highly recommend them to any and all! - PH

As I prepared to buy my first house, the idea of working with a real estate agent was somewhat daunting. On the recommendation of a good friend, I happened upon Jen and Jeanine. I can’t imagine being happier with my experience. From start to finish, they were extremely helpful. They took the time to listen to me and learn what I was looking for in a home. They suggested great places to see, while also being available to discuss and show me places that I found on my own. Most importantly, in what became an increasingly competitive market, they didn’t push me to buy a house that I wasn’t excited about or completely comfortable buying. Jen and Jeanine were patient when I really needed it, and they were always available when I had a question. Additionally, they work with, and have great suggestions about, additional people you’ll need as you’re going through the process – including finance folks, inspectors, etc. Everyone they suggested provided full transparency on fees, costs, etc., and I was always impressed with their services, which made all my worries about the closing process less stressful. I wholeheartedly recommend Jen and Jeanine if you’re looking to purchase a house. -

Jen and Jeanine did an amazing job helping us sell our home during the Washington state COVID-19 shutdown. I had recently retired and we wanted to move out of Seattle to Bellingham. As the pandemic was escalating we had decided to hold off on the move, ...until we found the perfect house in Bellingham. When our offer was accepted and we called on Jen and Jeanine to help us quickly get our Seattle house on the market before the state shutdown. Jen and Jeanine came over that night and we defined our home sale strategy and they worked with us on what furniture we should move out of the house to get it staged for showing. Our house went on the market a few days later, right when the shutdown was announced. Jen and Jeanine did an excellent job strategizing on how best to sell our home with the unique and very dynamic marketing rules; virtual tours only, then only one agent and one buyer, etc. Our friends thought we were crazy to try to sell during the shutdown, but Jen and Jeanine had a great understanding of the market and saw that home sales were still progressing and we should still be able to get a good price for our home. With their help and strategizing we got a great offer in two weeks and closed four weeks after offer acceptance. Jen and Jeanine did a great job coaching us through the inspection report and resulting negotiation process. The negotiations were low stress and went very smoothly.

Overall we couldn't be happier with how the whole sale went. Jen and Jeanine demonstrated an excellent understanding of the market and in developing a sales strategy during these unique times. Their confidence and expertise really smoothed the whole process and kept it relatively stress free. They kept us well informed of all the process steps and even coordinated allowing us to sign the final sale documents in our new home in Bellingham. Finally, they were also just great people to work with. We're really glad we've gotten to know them more. - RH
