Testimonials

"We could not be any more grateful for the work Alex put into selling our home. We made a quick and BIG decision to move to Austin,TX to be closer to family. As overwhelmed as we were, Alex helped us stay at ease from start to finish. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable, easy to reach (even when she was on vacation) and always handled everything with a smile. If there were any issues or concerns that we were confronted with, Alex immediately guided us in the right direction. You clearly love what you do. Thank You Alex!"



"Alex has helped us rent our condo on two occasions now, and I will continue to call her every time we need to do it again. She is great, goes above and beyond her role and does so with a smile. She will give you good recommendations and suggestions and she makes the process easy to navigate. She is great at listening to your concerns and figuring out how to best move forward based on your goals. I would highly recommend Alex for renting or buying/selling a home. Thanks again Alex!"



"Alex helped us buy our first home, and we couldn't have asked for a better person to work with! She is extremely knowledgeable and is able to explain every single step of the process in a way that is easy to understand and not overwhelming. Her response time is lightning-fast, which was a huge help for us landing our starter home in a hot neighborhood. We felt more than comfortable deferring to her expertise on a number of issues. She also provided referrals for our mortgage lender and home inspector, both of whom were fantastic! Beyond her skills as a realtor, she is just a great person. She is thoughtful and funny, and never made us feel silly or uncomfortable for asking questions or expressing our opinions. I could go on and on about how great it was to work with Alex. We are extremely grateful, and would recommend her to anyone!"



"Alex was a great ambassador as my agent in selling my home in Hyde Park From our first meeting and pricing discussions through the closing process, her guidance and feedback was incredibly helpful. I was fortunate that my house got multiple offers in less than a week on the market. I would urge sellers to listen to Alex’s advice and use her recommended partners. I can’t thank Alex enough for how smoothly and quickly everything went from beginning to end!"



"Alex is my hero. She helped me through the entire process, answering all my questions or pointing me to the right places for answers. She was my champion, listened to everything I wanted, and helped me find my first home. 10/10 would hire her again."



"She was really helpful in the entire process of me and my roommates finding the right apartment for us. She has great communication and did everything in her power to answer all the questions we had regarding the apartment."



"We were not having any luck finding a renter for our 4 bed/2 bath unit and were quite concerned heading into the winter season so we asked Alex to take over our listing. She immediately pulled up comps and expected market times for similar listings in our neighborhood giving us a true understanding of price point and market lead time. She kept our expectations realistic but competitive at the same time. She hosted numerous showings and one mini open-house which yielded us a couple applications to choose from. We are glad to say she was able to find us a great tenant in the most difficult of times (and quicker than the average market wait time!). Alex always kept us posted with activity, was upbeat and professional, and maintained a positive outlook. She guided us each step of the way and answered any questions we had very promptly. I would highly recommend Alex to guide you through a time that would otherwise be very stressful, whether it be renting, buying, or selling a property. Thank you Alex!"



"Alex was great to work with. Selling a home that you've lived in for 23 years is not a process I want to ever repeat. Alex was professional, organized and kept me on task. She made a horrendous process bearable. Thanks Alex!"



"Alex was wonderful to work with! She managed both our sale and purchase. She closed the sale of our condo while we were out of the country and hard to reach, and we were so happy to have her managing this. In regards to purchasing, Alex had many insights into different neighborhoods, which was super informative. She was both patient and proactive about researching questions we had, and tapping into her network. We found a home we absolutely love and are grateful to have had her guidance and insight in this process. Thank you Alex!"



"Alex Burki did an absolutely fantastic job. Not only was she the picture of professionalism throughout the entire sales process, but she was also extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and an overall pleasure to work with. The end result literally couldn't have been better - we accepted an offer above our asking price in less than a week on the market. Thank you again Alex!"



"I'm so thankful for Alex! Just moving to Chicago from Colorado Springs and I really needed someone who knew the city well. She was able to answer all of my questions thoroughly and thankfuly met me on extremely short notice and a tight schedule. I will recommend Alex to all of my family and friends in the future. This was such an enjoyable and easy experience when oftentimes moving to a large city is incredible intimidating. She took my stress away."



"From several doors opening to one happily closed, Alex created a seamless experience that was not only warm and inviting, but also poised and professional. Her understanding of the real estate and rental landscape was very useful to us as our lack thereof would have made decision-making difficult. Alex took great care to note our wants and needs, then matched our requisites to several high quality homes promptly. We were able to find a lovely home in the time frame we requested, which was admittedly very short. Alex is also very flexible with respect to time; she is willing and happy to accommodate her clients late into the evening. We couldn’t be more pleased with our choice in an agent!"



"Alex is absolutely the reason why we're in the house we're in now. Looking for a rental with a short window, she was relentless in sending searches, scheduling showings and following up in a timely fashion. When a house didn't seem right, she didn't hesitate to tell us, always having our best interests in mind. We would absolutely work with her again!"



"As a first time home buyer, of course I was intimidated by this whole process, especially since it is a seller's market in Chicago... everything was going off the market so fast! Alex was amazing and helpful every step of the way and made it so easy for me. Literally all I had to do is show up where she told me to and I found my first house (a 2-flat in Avondale) within a month! She also had many wonderful recommendations, and directed me to a mortgage lender who was able to close on my FHA loan in 30 days! Based on all my research before the process started, especially with FHA loan, this process should have taken months! I am so excited to be in my new home in time for summer BBQ's. Thanks so much Alex for everything! You made this whole thing so simple and I'm so happy to finally be a homeowner!"



"Alex was very professional, easy going, and patient with my decision making process. She took me step by step through each process to ensure I had a clear understanding of what to expect. I felt very comfortable as a first time buyer working with her."



"As first time home buyers completely new to the process, Alex was very helpful in walking us through the process and helping us figure out exactly what type of home was right for us. We probably visited more than 30 properties in a range of areas before finding out home, and Alex was helpful along the way in pointing out details we should be looking at, and helping us narrow the search until we found our home. She was helpful through the offer and closing processes as well, always available with answers to questions whenever they came up.

I'd definitely recommend Alex to anyone looking to buy a new home."



"Alex made my first home buying experience a snap! Thanks for all of your help through this process, especially with your great recommendations for lawyers/inspectors/etc. We love our new home and appreciate all you did to get us in there."



"Alex is a wonderful agent, always thinking about, and acting on different ways to get potential renters to see our place. She took initiative on listing and placing paid ads on many different websites as well as on social media. She made helpful recommendations based on her experience that panned out beautifully. Additionally, with us being out of town during the renting process, she was super helpful with anything we needed to get done in Chicago. She made us feel that renting our condo was as important to her as it was to us. I would gladly (and enthusiastically) recommend Alex to anyone looking for a truly professional, trustworthy, reliable partner in buying/selling/renting a property."



"Working with Alex was a joy. Our search was conducted via long distance and from the start Alex strove to learn our needs. She also made a point to validate her understanding of them in case things had changed. When we visited in person she accommodated our schedules and always had a list of properties available for us to preview virtually in advance of our travel. She visited multiple properties on her own to assess if they fit our needs so our visits could be as productive as possible. Alex anticipated changes in our priorities and surprised us with several properties that fit our emerging needs, including the one we purchased. Alex is a true professional and a wonderful person to work with."



"Alex was a pleasure to work with in the process of selling our condo. She is smart, professional, effective and responsive. We were concerned that it would be difficult to manage all the details from out of town, but she made it incredibly easy for us. Her communication was prompt and efficient. I recommend her without any hesitation."



"My husband and I recently bought our first home in Oak Park together. We happened to meet Alex at an open house in January. We had been struggling to find a real estate agent who meshed with our personalities but would also be responsive and devote enough time to us. As well as someone who could help us navigate the tricky waters of being a first time home buyer. Alex met all of that criteria and more!! She was amazing!! When she met us she knew we weren’t certain about location or type of house we wanted. She gave us plenty of options both throughout the city and in Oak Park. It was so helpful to find someone who knew both areas very well. She helped us through the process each step of the way and always had great suggestions and ideas. It was comforting knowing we could count on her and had someone by our side. I’d recommend Alex in a heart beat to anyone searching to buy in the Chicago area!! Plus she even brought us donuts to our closing!! She’s the best! You can’t go wrong with Alex!!"



"Alex is wonderful! She was very patient and thoughtful in the homes she showed me. I’m so grateful for her negotiation expertise as a first time home buyer. Alex showed me comparable homes in the area and checked off all my must haves in a home. She is a real estate agent for life!"



"I had the pleasure of working with Alex this year when I sold my house. I was recently widowed and Alex made a very difficult time in my life a breeze. She was responsive and respectful to my needs. Two days on the market and we got a full price offer. Getting the deal to closing was another thing. Thanks to Alex and her vast knowledge of real estate, I was able to make my move out of state prior to closing without a worry. I will recommend Alex Burki to anyone who is in the market to purchase or sell their home."



"Alex Burki is the best real estate agent I've ever worked with. My wife and I had to sell our home in Chicago after I received a job offer in Milwaukee. I wanted to go with an agent that was either a friend of a friend or someone who I knew personally. Alex was new to the business, but I've known her and her husband for almost 15 years. From day one, Alex was completely invested in helping my wife and I through the sale process. Within one or two days she had a competitive market analysis completed for our house based on recent sales in our area. Overall we ended up selling at a great price in a very short amount of time. I would most definitely recommend Alex to anyone, including friends and family, who need a real estate agent in the Chicagoland area. We honestly could not have had a better experience selling our home. Thanks again Alex!"



"My experience with Alex as our realtor was perfect from start to finish. She not only did excellent and diligent work in marketing our house for sale, she provided us with VERY helpful tips and guidance through the process. As the agent for our purchase as well, it did not take long for Alex to be 100% in sync with our personal tastes and what we were looking for in a new home. After our offer was made, she stayed in contact with us through the entire process (and beyond) to ensure everything was on course. I could not have asked for anything more!"



"I'm so thankful for Alex! Just moving to Chicago from Colorado Springs and I really needed someone who knew the city well.

"Working with Alex was always a pleasure and truly a collaborative experience. No matter how frantic the people around her, no matter how tight a deadline loomed, Alex was calm in the face of the storm. Unruffled and collected, she stayed focused and got the job done. She is adaptable, creative, open to others' ideas, and a joy to work with."



"My experience with Alex was great. She is personable and knowledgeable. Alex is also flexible and patient. She took us to see at least thirty homes until we found the right one. I have recommended Alex to others and would utilize her services again!"
