What clients are saying...

Carla Ostrowski

“My husband and I recently purchased a home with the assistance of realtor, Greg Burke. We were particularly impressed with Greg’s advice on how to negotiate a realistic and fair price.

 Greg made himself available when we had time and was willing to show us around over a period of several months and discuss various options within our price range in the geographical areas we had specified. His suggestions indicated that he was listening to what we had requested and did not waste our time with unsuitable listings.

 Whenever we had a question or left him a telephone message Greg quickly responded with the answer. If he didn’t know the answer to a question, he did the necessary research, found out and let us know.

 We also appreciated the lawyer Greg recommended. We found him reasonable priced and very thorough in reviewing then translating the legalistic language in the purchase documents into words that we could understand. We feel confident that Greg is trust worthy and he repeatedly demonstrated that he had our best interests at heart.

 Once we found our beautiful new home and wanted to put in an offer, Greg’s calm manner was very reassuring in keeping us objective during the purchase transaction which can be a very emotional time. Greg patiently explained the real estate jargon in the fine print of the various documents that we needed to sign. Thank you, Greg and I wish you success in your future endeavours.”

“We were concerned about putting our property up for sale during what everyone was calling a  buyers market.  Greg took the time to research and educate us on the sales history and pricing of comparable properties in the area, and helped us set a realistic asking price.  He put together an attractive advertising package that presented the property to its best advantage.  Upon receiving two offers, Greg negotiated the sale which resulted in us receiving above asking price, all within 7 days of listing.  In a depressed market, we think this is nothing short of amazing.

 We are impressed with Greg’s professionalism and the great service he provided us.  We would recommend him to anyone considering selling or buying a home.

 Thanks Greg,”

“I was amazed at how effortless and easy Greg made finding my new home. He was very informative and the price he negotiated for me was way below what I expected to get it for. Greg not only helped me with finding and negotiating price and terms on the property I decided on, he helped me with every step of the process until I was moved in! I am so happy in my new home and would highly recommend Greg to any of my friends or family. Thanks again for everything,"

“It is without hesitation that I recommend the professional real estate services provided by Greg Burke of Pemberton Holmes Real Estate brokerage. In October 2005 Greg sold my home within one day at an above market price.

 Prior to the sale he provided me with all the required explanations and advice in order to place the home on the market appropriately. He took action expeditiously and placed the home on the market in a short time frame after initial discussions.

 His follow up with appropriate persons related to the sale was excellent. An added bonus is that Greg has many contacts that can assist with other related events, such as Legal Services, moving services and mortgage services, all at reasonable costs.

 I would not hesitate to use Greg again in any home sale or purchase. He has provided excellent service.”

Grant & Sarah Smith

“My Husband and I were referred to Greg by friends of ours who suggested that he would be able to help us sell a property we had. Greg was very knowledgeable about the current real estate market conditions in Victoria and helped to educate us and prepare us with all the necessary facts and resources that would be pertinent to our property. With his expertise, Greg informed us on the comparables in our area and together we priced it accordingly.

 Greg always kept us updated on the status of our any offers that were brought to the table, and was always available to us.. Greg brought two interested parties to us and was able to encourage multiple offers. The end result was that we sold our home in under two weeks and received above our asking price in a down market.

 If you want your home sold quickly and want to be educated with your investment, we highly recommend Greg Burke as your Realtor.  Thank you Greg for all your guidance and assistance in this important step of our lives, we couldn’t have done it with out you!”

“When I decided to buy a home in Victoria few years ago, a good friend of mine highly recommended Greg as the realtor I should work with. After meeting with Greg, he spent many hours viewing perspective homes with me and educating me on which ones offered better construction quality, location, schools, and about most importantly, which properties would have a good upside potential for resale. After familiarizing me with the Victoria real estate market, Greg helped me to find an excellent property which met all of my requirements and negotiated a very good price for it. He then made arrangements for the building inspections, helped me arrange attractive financing rates, introduced me to a great lawyer and every other step along the way until I was settled into my new home.

 Since then, Greg has helped me buy and sell three other properties and all of them have been not only good experiences, but profitable ones! I have already referred Greg to several of my friends and will continue to do so with confidence.”
