Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, I've called Chicago home for close to 20 years. I love its beauty, diversity, neighborhoods, and most importantly, it's people!
After graduating from Indiana University-Bloomington with a degree in fine arts and art history, I began my career in fundraising and marketing for several Chicago-based non-profit organizations. It's this experience as a superb listener and communicator, along with my understanding and knowledge of market trends, which helps me create new opportunities for my clients in an ever-changing real estate market.
Buying or selling a home is one of the most exciting, exhilarating, stressful and important things you will ever do. You can trust that I will listen to your wants and needs, work continually as we find the perfect property, help you navigate a complicated process, and advocate for you every step of the way. Whether you are a first time homebuyer, expanding your family, or considering downsizing, I look forward to bringing my knowledge enthusiasm and expertise to help you reach your goals. Whatever your real estate need, I'm ready to assist you through every step of the real estate process - from negotiation final prices to handling legal issues and paperwork.
I live in the North Mayfair neighborhood on the northwest side of Chicago with my husband, three children and two pitties. In my spare time I am busy serving as President of my neighborhood school PTO, running (completed my first marathon in Oct 2018!), yoga, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and taking in all Chicago has to offer!
Clients are saying:
"Alex was the absolute best and made the buying process incredibly easy! I highly recommend working with her - she was not only knowledgable about the area I was looking to move to, but listened to all the nuances for what I was looking for, and was able to deliver. Furthermore, when my schedule shifted, she was so accommodating and incredibly patient. The process of buying can be overwhelming but Alex truly made it not only feel simple but really enjoyable."
"Alex helped me in every aspect of the home buying experience. She showed me a variety of options in many different neighborhoods that all met or exceeded my "must haves". Her recommendations for mortgage brookers, home inspectors, and attorneys are great and easy to work with. If you are looking to buy a home in Chicago there is no one better to turn to than Alex."
"Alex was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process with us first time homebuyers, new transplants to the city.. We started our search before COVID and Alex was communicative throughout the entire process so we can see homes safely and comfortable for us. When we found our new home, she was very responsive to our needs and walked us through the process from end to end and connected us to the right people to get the transaction done. Would strongly recommend her and here team to handle your home needs..we will definitely use here again (hopefully many many years from now though)"
"Our real estate experience with Alexandra Burki was fantastic! She priced our home just right and personally attended every showing and inspection at our home. This often gave us useful insight as we made decisions about offers. Alex was quick to respond to every issue and question that came up. We felt confident in her ability to guide us through the somewhat complicated process of selling our home. We cannot recommend her highly enough!"
"Alex is a true real estate pro! We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with her. She was available when we needed her, was able to answer all of our questions quickly and ultimately provided us with great insight for our condo purchase. She knows the Chicago neighborhoods well. Don’t hesitate to contact her if you’re looking for a home in the Chicago area."
