Due to an unparalleled commitment to providing outstanding customer service as a Phoenix Realtor assisting with Scottsdale home sales and Paradise Valley property purchases, many satisfied real estate customers have submitted letters of thanks and some greatly appreciated reviews regarding my Maricopa County real estate services.

Randy Rogers

There are realtors, and then there is Bret Burke!
 
In the past 2 years I have completed 4 real estate transactions, 3 sales, 1 purchase.  The last transaction was the sale of my home which I had owned for nearly 10 years.  I interviewed several realtors after poor to mediocre experiences with multiple realtors over the past couple of years and selected Bret Burke to market my home.
 
Real estate is Bret's vocation, not his part time job, not his retirement supplement. Bret listens carefully then takes action to accomplish the goal. Bret is detail oriented, efficient and always thoroughly prepared, his fortune 500 marketing experience and professionalism show, but he is always exceptionally personable.  Bret is the kind of realtor that quickly becomes a knowledgeable partner who is 100% focused on exceeding everyone's expectations and the timely succesful completion of the transaction.  I only wish I had met Bret 2 years ago.

Amy Hood

I had a very positive experience with Bret Burke, and would recommend him to friends and family in the future. I received multiple offers within days of listing my house for sale. I credit Bret's pricing strategy as he really focused on listing at the correct price from the start. As soon as we went under contract he stayed in touch keeping me informed of each step along the way. I really appreciated his help after our inspection, helping to set up contractors and bid out the best price. Overall, selling my house was quick and painless and I credit Bret for the time and attention he spent helping me through the process.
 
  

Joseph J Sikora & Lorraine A Sikora

Bret, Thank you for your professionalism and knowledge of the local real estate market. We are convinced that the photographs and your marketing of the property were the primary reasons for the timely sale. You can be sure that if ever we should have a need for a Realtor you will be our first choice.

I had the pleasure of working with Bret when I was looking to purchase a home. My search was in the midst of the housing boom last year and properties were few and far between.

My realtor had been searching all summer, and my thoughts of finding "my house" were not very confident. I was new at the whole process, so I was a big reason for the delay in finding a home. I was leaving for a trip on a Friday and my realtor saw a listing by Bret Burke that just came on the market. The pictures were amazing and it just so happens that there was an open house that day. Since I was leaving that afternoon, I was hesitant to go look at the listing. Andrea, my realtor, was so passionate about the house, location and price - we had to take a look.

We went to look at the home and Bret was there to welcome us. There was an instant comfort with Bret. He was there to provide information, yet he let us look at the property and not feel like he was "pressuring" us - made us very comfortable.

As you can decipher, I am now the owner of the home. What was truly impressive was the assistance that Bret gave to both me and my realtor to get the transaction done. I was out of town for ten days!! This means that everything that is involved with purchasing the house was done while I was out of town - paperwork, inspection, etc. Bret was very helpful in the communicating between the sellers, my realtor and myself. Since the homeowners were on a deadline to relocate out of state. Bret was the key contact, on their behalf, to get any items resolved from the inspection/repair list. The relationship my realtor and Bret developed was fantastic! As comfortable as I was with Andrea, Bret made the experience seamless.

When I returned from my trip, I had some questions and items I wanted to look at as far as the house was concerned (i.e. possible leaks after a tremendous storm). Bret made extra time to meet us at the house and let me double check items that were on my mind.

The support Bret provided during the buying didn't end after the sale was complete. There was an issue with transferring the roof warranty. He made numerous calls to the contractor to make sure I had the necessary information to provide to them to insure the warranty was transferred properly. I know this took valuable time from Bret's schedule, yet he did it to make sure I was taken care of and happy. He went above and beyond the call of duty.

As I would 100% recommend my realtor (she was awesome), I can honestly say that Bret was equally impressive to work with on the entire house buying transaction. I still hear from Bret occasionally, just to see how things are going.

My first time home buying experience was so positive and it was mainly because of the relationship developed with me, my realtor and Bret. He would be an asset to any home seller and/or buyer.

Bret was very easy to work with and got the job done efficiently. Very responsive to any and all situations that came up. Very good at communicating with all parties immediately as needed. I also like that fact the Bret listened to me when I had opinions and needs, but also offered his advice when I wasn't sure on certain things. Bret was willing to help in any way he could and I always felt I was his top priority.


Belle Butler

I had purchased and sold several homes during my lifetime, and have never found anyone who worked as hard and as effectively as Bret Burke. He is on top of every aspect of buying and selling (we did both) and found that he offered superior customer service. I most liked the fact that he listened and did not try to sell us something so he could close the sale, rather he was more interested in our getting exactly what we wanted in a home. He was patient and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him!

 


 

Deanna & Travis Young

 We cannot say enough positive things about working with Bret, who helped us buy our first home! We are so grateful for his expertise, his impeccable work ethic, his kindness, his helping us with every detail and question, his responsiveness, and how he ALWAYS went above and beyond for us. We had doubts about the existence of the “perfect home” for our family in the desired location, but thanks to Bret, we have actually found it and couldn’t be more pleased. We couldn’t have asked for a better person for the job and feel very fortunate to have had Bret on our team.

Ellen Rosenthall

 Bret was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He was always available to answer any questions that I had regarding the sale of my property and he kept me up to date during the entire process. He facilitated a very smooth transaction and I wouldn't hesitate to refer him to anyone looking for a terrific real estate agent.

Ellen

 Bret did a terrific job helping me sell an investment property. Between pricing the home, negotiating a contract within a week and keeping me updated every step of the way during the closing process, all went very smoothly. Bret was always available to answer any questions. In addition to that, he's a really nice guy and very easy to work with!!

Janice DeWeerdt

 Bret was very attentive to all my questions. He always had time for me. He showcased my property beautifully. He was very professional in every detail.

Chris Small

 I am a first time home buyer and Bret was very knowledgeable and helped me find the perfect house. He also went above and beyond to explain anything I was confused about in the buying process. He was very patient and open to my schedule needs as i work odd hours during the week and weekends. Thanks Bret for helping me find the perfect house

Lauren & Kevin Grover

 We had a great experience buying our first home with Bret. Home buying can be a very stressful time, especially if you are a first time home buyer. Bret went above and beyond though and helped make this a happy time for us. He helped take care of little details (the ones that can all add up to big headaches) just so that it was one less thing for us to deal with. We would definitely use Bret again!

Jo Anne Downey


Bret Burke is by far, one of the best Realtors that we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He is fair, and patient, and goes the extra mile and a half, to make sure the client is satisfied and happy with the property and the transaction. Is there a property you'd like to look at *now*? He will make that happen to the best of his ability. He gives his honest opinion, and does not try to over-sell. I only wish that we knew Bret about 10 years ago, I am sure that some of our dealings would have gone a lot more smoothly.Jo Anne Downey
 

Peg & Steve Watters


Bret is very professional and detailed. He kept us informed about very step of the process. He does not just list a house, he works hard to sell it. Anyone can list a house; it's just a matter of doing paperwork. It takes much more skill to sell - and Bret possesses the skill set to do so. He is a hard worker, not just for himself but he worked hard for us. We highly recommend Bret and, if in the future we have need for a realtor, Bret is the one we'll call.

 

Greg Small


Update - I have now had the pleasure of both Buying and Selling a house with Bret. In addition to my first experience as a buyer (below), Bret went even further as a listing agent. He visited my property countless times to review the area, look at comps, offer advice on staging, etc. He was also present for all interactions with the buyers including the inspection, walk-thru, and appraisal. House had offers the first weekend and was under contract within a week. Bret was ALWAYS available for questions or updates and was very proactive with the entire process from fixing up the property to the closing. Bret was very easy to work with and got the job done efficiently. Very responsive to any and all situations that came up. Very good at communicating with all parties immediately as needed. I also like that fact the Bret listened to me when I had opinions and needs, but also offered his advice when I wasn't sure on certain things. Bret was willing to help in any way he could and I always felt I was his top priority.
