"This is the second property that I have sold through Debra and Mike they are the best. The process of listing to the sale of the property went very smooth. The whole time I was living in Florida. They kept me informed with progress from the signing of the contract the inspections and the closing. If you want your property sold do not hesitate to contact the Burke team." Marshall Berger

"We chose to go with Debra by her presence on signage in our neighborhood but you know that doesn't guarantee her group's expertise--We were not disappointed! From the minute Debra and her team came to our house, we knew we were in good hands. Not only does she understand the neighborhood, she understands the current market and our home. She made the listing and showing process so smooth that we had to keep up with her! Her team also made the negotiation process with the potential sellers smooth. I would definitely recommend Debra and her team for your Budd Lake real estate needs!" Annette Girondi

"Debra and her team were excellent in our transaction. They were consummate professionals and I would recommend them to anyone! They kept in constant contact throughout the deal and really helped keep everything together so we could close. They were especially helpful during home inspection process." Brain & Patricia Jordan

"We decided to call Debra Burke after seeing her name attached to many listings over the years. When we sat down with Debra and she was very knowledgeable about the market and what steps needed to be made to get the best price for our home. We liked her team approach handling the transaction from listing to closing. Our home sold in less than a week, Debra and her team handled all the details while we were away." Paul Nickl

"Debra and her team are great to work with! Because they are the experts, we followed her suggestions on price and getting the home ready for prospective buyers. The result was, it went on the market Friday afternoon, had showings over the weekend, and had a buyer by Monday!!! And a holiday weekend no less! This was the easiest home sale process we have been through, all thanks to Debra and her team" John Vella

Debra and Mike, Thank you so much for all your help, we are glad the closing went smoothly and we are happy we were able to pack everything in time for the closing. It was not easy. Thank you for selling our beautiful home so quickly. I knew I chose the best agent to sell our home when I called you. We appreciate everything you all did. We would definitely recommend you to our friends and family. Best Steph and Ron Oringer

We cannot thank you enough for making it happen. Debra, you and your outstanding team of professionals proved what top class service means. Haritha and I will be ever grateful to you and Debra. Both of you above all are extremely nice, candid and respectful. We wish you both nothing but the very best. Once again, Thank you ....Vinu & Haritha

I have to say from beginning to end my experience with the Debra Burke team was excellent A1! Her responsiveness and her teams is immediate. Debra and Mike Burke both were available for me at all times even helped me with my photo shoot... They made me feel comfortable and at ease with the sale of my house and they know the market very well . I am very happy with the sale process and the amount my home sold for. I don't think I could have sold my home for the price I did and in THE AMOUNT OF TIME with any other realtor. I tell everyone I know to use the Debra Burke team.-Tami Bonner

The Burke Team was tremendous in supporting the sale of our home in Mount Olive Township, NJ. We had already moved to another state and so were going through the process remotely. Both Michael and Debra were wonderful in providing assistance that went above and beyond the normal role of a real estate agent. They assisted with recommending and facilitating contractors needed to complete the list of repair/upgrade items that were produced via the inspection. The Burke Team was readily accessible, responsive, and exhibited genuine care and empathy throughout the entire process from finding a buyer to the actual closing. We would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to sell their home.-Ed & Elana Tworek

The Debra Burke Coldwell Banker team are beyond description. I have sold five houses in my lifetime. No other Real Estate Team came close to comparison . Because of their background my house sold within one week of listing. The house presentation and picture video of the 33 year old house bloomed like a fresh flower as if being just built and move in ready. The property sold for the listed price and any concerns, legal or otherwise were masterfully and promptly handled.-Leslie & James Haget

I would strongly recommend Debra Burke, her husband Mike, and her team. They approach real estate in a very unique way. They only work with the seller. This allows their organization to give exceptional service to the seller of the home. Debra and Mike specialize in different aspects of the selling process. I felt this expertise gave me, the seller, a definite edge in the marketing and sale of my home. I would add a category listed above (Honesty). This is critical to me, and the Burke's honesty and candor were both refreshing and appreciated.  –Pat & Ethel Paciello

We have sold four homes over the years. Debra Burke handled our latest and the process from beginning to end was by far the smoothest we've ever experienced! From the initial consultation to the final closing, Debra Burke and her team handled every aspect of the sales process with professionalism and integrity. If you are buying or selling in northwest New Jersey Debra Burke is the agency to use!  -Mike & Chris Prettyman

Debra Burke and her team were absolutely fantastic to work with!! She and Mr. Burke were always receptive to our calls, texts and emails. They stayed on top of the sale from start to finish and worked as an advocate for their client. Choosing Debra Burke and her team was the best decision we could have made.  –Harold & Karen Wittes

After a few years of talking about selling our home of 45 years we finally made the decision to do it. The next big decision was to find a realtor to trust with our treasure. After all, this was the home where my children were born and raised. I did some research and decided to call Debra Burke. From the moment we met she put all our fears to rest. She had a plan, explained what she would do and what we needed to do. Within a week of being on the market we had many people looking at our home and actually got an offer on the house. The marketing was great and she correctly priced the house to sell. She and her team were there through out the whole process. I can't say enough about the way we were treated. If you are thinking about selling your treasure, call the Debra Burke Team. Sincerely, Jackie and Bob Vidal

It is never easy to make the leap to sell and purchase a new home and we were fortunate to work with Debra Burke, Mike Burke and Kim Wyche. Team Burke not only helped us find and close our new home they also helped us market and sell our existing home. Debra, Mike and Kim worked to make sure the process went smoothly and all steps toward closing were done effectively and efficiently. The team quickly addressed and provided clarity for any issues or questions that may have been raised and more importantly Team Burke was supportive, honest and very attentive during all aspects of the transactions.  

If the time ever comes when we will be looking for a new home, there isn't any question on who our realtor team will be and we highly recommend for all of your real estate needs.

-Paul and Tricia Ciavolella

"YOUR Positive Connection for Positive Results”…

I remember seeing the statement above on the marketing material a couple years before we listed our home with the Debra Burke Team. I remember reflecting back on the statement above, after the Debra Burke Team had three offers on our home within three days! We did have such a positive experience from start to finish and wanted to take time out to write our expressions of gratitude – The Debra Burke Team is amazing!

The Debra Burke Team is simply the best! We wished the team was in Arizona to help us with our relocation.

Thanks again for your expertise, warmth, and positive professionalism. We love your all.   Ryan & Emily Florek

Hi Debra,

Thank you for all of your help selling my parents home in Chester. This was a very stressful time for our family and your team really came through and helped in every way possible. This allowed us time to take care of the health needs of my parents while the house was being marketed. We needed a quick sale and that is just what we got when we put the property into your hands.

One of the things I appreciated the most about working with you and your team was your unending support regardless of the circumstances. Your team approach worked seamlessly and there was always someone there on your end willing to help us.

We wish you all of the best!

Sincerely, Terry Keyser

So as you know selling or buying a house can be a challenging process, and making sure you are working with the "right" agent can make all the difference.

From my Initial call to Debra Burke I had a feeling I was about to be working with a true professional. From my initial meeting at her office she took me thru the process on what she and her Team would do to help me sell my home quickly and get me top dollar. I have seen homes on the market for months with no movement, so this was music to my ears. Once we decided to work together things took off fast. Debra came to my home, took pictures, and offered great suggestions on "de-cluttering" to make sure my home would show well. She even had great contacts for sub-contractors to do some painting, a great attorney to assist with closing…she was a 1 stop shop. I can't tell you how much this helped - it saved me tons of time, phone calls and reduced my stress throughout the entire process. Once home was posted we had great traffic thru the house and 3 offers in the 1st week. 

Deb's Team did not stop there - as we addressed items on inspection list her Team walked me thru this process. They would talk me thru each point, give me Advice which helped me make good decisions to make sure we addressed each item to ensure we stayed on track to get my house sold. After putting house on market in early June my house closed and sold by mid SEPT. If you are searching for the top agent who knows her market and what to do to help you either sell or buy a home look no further - Debra Burke and Team will make it Happen for you. Thanks Debra.

Sincerely, Ken Vanemon

With the expertise and marketing of our home, you were able to sell our home within 6 hours after listing. You have an aggressive marketing campaign and are dedicated to selling homes!
Your knowledge of the market in the area is outstanding. We can not thank you enough for a smooth sales transaction and representation!
Thank you again: Tony & Mary Ranieri

Our thanks to the Debra Burke Team for their help, guidance and professionalism in getting our home listed, prepped, positioned and sold!
The entire Team, including the people recommended to help with everything from inspection, to testing, to the closing process, were friendly, service oriented and knowledgeable. They made our priorities theirs, and were committed to helping us get our home sold!
Debra and Mike’s guidance and advice in particular, were “spot on” in terms of determining the right sale price, staging our home for showing, negotiating contract terms and managing the process through to conclusion.
It was clear from our experience that the entire Team takes pride in their profession and desires to do what’s best for their client. As a result, we are not only glad we chose Coldwell Banker but grateful that we got to work with the Debra Burke Team.
Sincerely, Bill and Joan Turnbull

Mike and Debra sold our house in 3 days! Need we say more? They know the market well and know exactly what they are doing. They are very professional and yet warm and friendly at the same time. I would use them again for any future real estate transaction.  Frank and Katie Katsigiannis

Hello Debra and Mike,
We wanted to thank you for your help with selling our house. We had a great experience, now at the new house - relaxed and with a peace of mind. We'll definitely be referring you to our friends as a best Realtor team in the area! 
Maria and Dmitry Samoilov

I have had the pleasure of working with Debra and Mike Burke regarding the sale of two homes and one purchase. Beginning with the listing of my first home, I could tell that Debra was extremely professional and very knowledgeable of the current market conditions and sentiment. Her proactive marketing strategies brought many prospective buyers to my home. 
Mike Burke handled the negotiations with me for the offer on my second home with the same professionalism and advice as Debra had.
In this most recent sale, due to the frigid weather this winter, a pipe burst in my home. As an absentee owner, you cannot imagine the stress this caused. Mike Burke was there every step of the way for me. He took care of coordinating the repair of the pipe, restoration services needed and the sheetrock and insulation repair.  Following that, he checked the house every day until closing to ensure that there were no more issues. I couldn’t ask for better attention and assistance than that. I feel he went above and beyond and I am truly grateful for what he coordinated for me.
Ever since my first experience with Debra and Mike Burke, I have recommended them to anyone who inquired about who I used for my needs or asked for the name of a realtor.  Both Debra and Mike are knowledgeable, honest about realistic prices and expectations, proactive, supportive, personable and very approachable. I could go on but let me just say that even though I have moved out of state, I will continue to recommend Debra and Mike to anyone with any real estate needs in the area because I believe they are the best team. 
Ami G.

Dear Debra,
Thank you so much for helping sell and buy our latest home.  Your professionalism and positive attitude helped us to understand the many unfamiliar processes and allowed us to not get overwhelmed in such a stressful time.  We appreciate all that you and Mike did to seamlessly go from one home to another...I wouldn't trust anyone else!  Rosemarie Kinney

I wanted to thank you for your help in negotiating the sale of our house and purchase of our dream house. When we started to prepare to sell our house, you staged it so well we almost didn't want to leave it!  The mailers and brochures were amazing and obviously everyone else loved them too! When our needle in the haystack came on the market, we relied on your expertise to put together a competitive offer.  There were so many other offers on the house and your guidance was instrumental in getting our offer accepted and we can't thank you enough for that! 
Your team was amazing through the whole process: responding quickly to emails, taking us for multiple visits to the house, recommending professionals to help us along the way and even replying to late night texts!  The services you provided were first rate and while I hope we will not have to move again, if we do, you will be my first call!
Thank you again for everything!  Dani and Chris Marangon

We are writing to express our high regard and appreciation for our recent home-selling experience with real estate agent Debra Burke.  Debra represented us in our recent home sale in Mt Olive, NJ.
Debra Burke guided us through the entire process, from staging a home for sale, to ensuring we had a smooth selling experience. We credit Debra with a smooth, stress-free home-selling experience.
This is our third sales of property, and never had we had such a pleasurable experience. Debra is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our NEW dream home without her.
To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Debra and her expertise and we recommend her highly and with great respect.
Sincerely,  Pete and Diana Ganzer

Dear Debra;
Judi and I would like to thank the entire Debra Burke Team for the excellent service provided in selling our home.  Your market analysis and listing recommendations were accurate and insightful.
The frequent market update emails were particularly helpful.  We never had the "what's going on" feeling, and the few times we did call, you were always available.
Finally, having Michael walk us through the closing process was a reassuring experience.
We recommend the Debra Burke team at every opportunity.
Best Regards,
Jack and Judi Isler

My husband & I had a very positive experience in selling our home through you & your team. Your initial sales visit gave us a good overview of what to expect throughout the process and after that, Mike followed through & was responsive and helpful with all of the details through the final offer and sale. We would definitely recommend your & your team. Val Grady 

The Debra Burke team was professional and very helpful in buying and selling our home. 

Kim was an absolute delight to work with in buying our new home. She was so knowledgeable, patient and organized. She made every effort to be there for us and answer our questions/concerns. We could not have done it without her!

Our family would highly recommend the Debra Burke Team.

Kind Regards, Sonia D'Souza

Dear Ms. Burke and associates of The Debra Burke Team,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful support and guidance provided Mark and I on the recent sale of our home.  From the initial contact throughout the sales process, we were confident that our house would sell quickly (and it did!).  The expert advice and guidance your team provided us throughout the process, enabled us to set the right selling price and to position the house in a way that helped set us apart from other homes on the market. 
Collectively, this is our third experience with the Burke team, now totaling  2 home sales and one purchase.  We thank you for the expertise and professionalism exhibited during each of these transactions, all of which resulted in a satisfying outcome. 
Sincerely, Lisa E. Williams

This ALL would not have happened without your help ---- THANK YOU,  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Debra!!!!!  You truly have become a real blessing in our lives!!!  We are so very grateful to you!!! It was ALL perfect, and we have YOU and Michael to thank for that!!!! We hope ALL is well with you two and your family!!  Please just remember -- if you are ever out this way you are ALWAYS welcome in our home!!!!
BJ and Walter Jahn

Thank you so much for guiding us through this difficult housing market! Your suggestions and recommendations made the process easy to navigate and re-assuring. We couldn't have done this without your advice and assistance every step of the way. Thanks again for everything!  Will and Dien Zhou

Hello Debra and Mike,

We want to thank you for your excellent job you and your Team did with the sale of our home. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your Team.  Barbara and Stephen Babich

Hi Mike, Thanks so much. You did an excellent job getting the appraisal at or above the selling price. Larry Debolt

Thanks for all the professional help - Your expertise and experience in dealing with Corporate relocations, availability to answer questions, calm and professional demeanor, pragmatic guidance in prepping our home for the sale and knowledge of the local market for setting the listing price resulted in not only our home being sold in just one day but also for above list price!
For this we are very pleased and have no hesitation in recommending your services to all potential customers. All the best for the future!  Fareed and Ann Mohammed

We used Debra Burke and her team for the sale of our home in Flanders in April, 2013. We sold the house in 27 days. Debra’s marketing efforts ensured that we had someone looking at the home almost every day for those few weeks. Her team helped us to close, helped us make appointments with the township and finally, helped the new owners to the closing. 
We would highly recommend Debra and her team for anyone selling in the Flanders/Chester market. We found her professional, honest, hard-working and effective.  David and Sonja Vallillo

We were very pleased the way Debra Burke handled the sales promotion, the sales effort and the negotiation as such when selling our house.
Marketing and preparation - very professional work in preparing property pictures and brochures. The web site to the property was professionally done.
Pricing was set in accordance to our expectations and was lowered following a clear strategy in a step by step approach. We negotiated with potential buyers maximizing the obtainable price.
The paperwork was executed in a timely fashion. We would highly recommend Debra and her Team.  Herwig Bachmann

Having had to move a few times, we have witnessed firsthand the shortcomings of “in-experience.”
We found the Burke Team to be professional, trustworthy and organized.  Their knowledge of the market, market trends and wealth of experience in the business of buying and selling real estate allowed us to make informed decisions.
We were completely satisfied with the Burke Team.  Gary and Diane Osmond

Debra Burke was our realtor during one of NJ's most difficult real estate markets ever.  In the year that Debra was our representing agent, she gave us crucial advice about how to present our home for maximum results, during a time when there were hundreds of homes on the market all at once in the Chester area, many of which were just sitting unsold, and continuing to decline in price.  

Debra emphasized the importance of showcasing the beauty of our home, not the contents that it contained.  Debra communicated everything to us in a very professional, positive and precise manner, in order to get the best results possible in a tumultuous market.  At times we felt stressed when our home wasn't selling as quickly as we would have liked.  However, Debra was always positive, reassuring and calm, and her excellent knowledge of the market always gave us a sense of comfort, that if anyone was going to sell their home, we were, when the right buyers came along!

Debra has an excellent relationship with all of the realtors in the Morris County area, and she did a superb job of attracting positive excitement and interest in our home amongst the area realtors, which in turn, brought a number of prospective buyers through our house!  Debra had a realtor open house, as well as several subsequent open houses, which brought many interested buyers through our home.  Also, you could always count on her to follow up promptly with the various realtors, representing these buyers.  She continually communicated to us the pros and cons of what people thought about our home, and did that in such a tasteful and useful way, that it actually strengthened our position in the marketplace, by following some of the feedback, which we received!

In the end, Debra was a friend, as well as our realtor.  We were very fortunate to have had a couple of very strong offers at the same time, in a dismal market.  Debra coached us with our strategies, in how to negotiate with both buyers.  This guidance helped to make it very clear to us, which buyer to go with, and which buyer would enjoy and love our home as much as we did, in the ten years we lived there!  

We were one of just a few house sales in our price range, during the month of August 2009, in Chester, NJ, and we have Debra to thank immensely for that success!  We got the results we were hoping for in the long run, with the sale of our house, while many other homes in our price range, continued to remain on the market, and decline in value.  

The time it took to sell our home was probably a little longer than it would have been, if the market conditions had been more favorable.  However, we sold our home to a lovely family, received a fair price in a rocky market, worked with a wonderful, professional realtor, and had a happy and successful conclusion to our home selling journey!  We highly recommend Debra Burke as a realtor, who gets maximum results, in any prevailing real estate market!
Carolyn and Jeff Schwarzwaelder

I´m writing today to express our gratitude and appreciation for our real estate agent Debra Burke.
Her professionalism in dealing with both the buyer and seller is unheard of these days. We only wished that we knew about her years ago when we were purchasing our first home!  One thing that we loved about Debra is how comfortable she made us feel.  There pretty much wasn't a question that we felt we couldn´t approach her with.  We could always count on her for her honesty and prompt service.
Debra is very knowledgeable in current market values and was wonderful on providing us great advice on how to stage our home for the maximum potential dollar value.   Even in a slow housing market, we received quick and multiple offers from many buyers.  The website they provided for our house was exceptional and we received many compliments from our friends and family. 
There´s no doubt in our mind that we would definitely recommend Debra and her wonderful team for any potential buyer or seller!   Thank you, Debra for holding our hands through this crazy housing market!! We couldn´t have done it without you!
With Best Regards,
Joe & May Chan

To whom it may concern!
I am sending this note to Debra for her to use with any of her current or future clients.
I have bought and sold 8 homes throughout the years.  I have to say that the most difficult sale I ever had to make was the sale of my home.  The market was dropping and fear of pending collapse was in the air.  Debra is the most professional individual I ever worked with in any of these sales or purchases.  She explained exactly what we needed to do in order to sell the house and move in our desired timeframe.  She worked with us through every phase of the sale and ensured everything was completed in an accurate and timely manner.  We were very pleased and quickly became aware that all we had to do was listen and we would reach our goals.  Please listen to her advice, even if it is not what you wanted to hear, she knows what she is talking about.  Debra knows the business, the market and what it takes to make the sale happen.  Once again, I give her the highest praise possible and wish I could use her services any time I purchase or sell a home.  Thanks Debra for all of your help and professionalism.If anyone would like to discuss my experience with Debra, her team or her abilities, please write me at dan.brown@verizon.net or call me at 214-287-7623.  Thanks, Dan Brown

Hi Debra and Thank You, Thank You, Thank You,
I can start the many nice things I want to say about you by wishing that you were down here to help us with the North Carolina end of our real estate transaction like you did on the New Jersey end.  You know that this is our 11th relocation in the last 35 years so we have some experience with the process but it is a new challenge every time.  This is the first relo we have had to do all on our own - no company support or involvement!  If it were not for your understanding of the current psychology of the psychotic real estate market and your well-informed handle on real estate, our 41 day sale cycle would never have happened!

This is a different market than we had previously experienced and you knew it would take a different attitude and approach for a successful sale.  Your value started with insight into what needed to be done to get our house ready for market - what was worth doing and what wasn't.  This saved us from spending time and money that we would not have recouped. When we were ready, you did a fine job of taking pictures of our home; you have a real talent in that area!

Next came the marketing expertise of your team.  You marketed it professionally and thoroughly, including the development of a separate web site for our home.  Your team understood the technology, insuring that our house would be seen by as many web searches as possible.  You and your team followed up with the realtors who showed the house to get feedback and improve our approach. 

Debra, we were proud to have you representing us and it was always a pleasure to see you.  Thank you for coming by often to make in-course corrections or answer questions we had.  You are THE BEST!! 
You helped us get past our dreams about what we thought our house should be worth and to a realistic understanding of what the market would tolerate.  We call that 'tough love'.  We were on our way to retirement and really needed to sell our house for 'big bucks' but once we told you that our strategy was to get to North Carolina before Christmas, you told us what we had to do.  We did it and sure enough, we celebrated Thanksgiving here!

Thank you so much!
- Susan & Matt Mengel

If you are looking for a real estate agent in New Jersey, I would highly recommend Debra Burke, of Coldwell Banker. Debra Burke is truly professional in all phases of her work. She sold our house, her marketing plan was very effective as we encountered a swarm of potential buyers/lookers during our first open house. She made all the important arrangements and contacts for staging our house and spared no expense when she advertised it. It was a real pleasure working with her. If you want a real professional for buying or selling a house call Debra Burke. She manages the process to ensure everything happens on time and when a last minute issue arises, she takes care of that, too. Her recommendations for professionals to do repairs have been great and I have yet to ask for a referral that she cannot provide.

She has performed above and beyond, since we lived out of state, we depended on her and she was always accessible to us. Debra would be available at the home and handle any problem that needed to be resolved. She would always have a smile, and made us feel comfortable in our decision in selling our beloved New Jersey home. Her experience in the New Jersey real estate market makes her a great resource for either the first time buyer or an experienced buyer that needs help finding just the right home.

We truly thank Debra Burke and we recommend her to all who wish to have a true happy experience when selling or buying a home.

John and Pauline Blasena

Dear Debra,

We would like to say thanks for helping us through the home buying process.  Having a realtor who lived in the area we were looking in was tremendously helpful as who would better know places to eat or contractors to trust than a local.  Your staff was very helpful as well which helped reduce the stress of trying to buy and sell a house at the same time.  We hope to enjoy our new house for years to come.

It is with great pleasure to recommend Debra Burke as your Real Estate agent. She has all the skills required to serve your needs as your agent. She is overly competent, professional and fulfills the real estate contract with utmost respect.
Debra has been my agent for the past year. We have had countless phone discussions, emails and she has completed details on my home that were way beyond her call of duty.
Debra is personable, thorough and can handle herself with dignity in a given situation.
This last year has proven to be a struggle for the housing industry and with that, Debra has always been positive and provide the seller´s with appropriate advice in reference to the house.
I would highly recommend Debra as a superior real estate agent!
Sincerely yours,
C. Dellostretto

Dear Debra,
I would like to thank you for the outstanding support you provided through our home sale. Marketing the house so well in very difficult market conditions, but also being such a great support in dealing with very demanding circumstances, and guiding me through to a successful conclusion.
Your willingness to deal with the required testing and inspections while I was out of the country was so valuable to me.
Thank you very much for your terrific support.
Best Regards,
S. Hammond

Our home is one of our biggest financial investments.  We view our personal finances as our own business; give it the priority it deserves.  So when interviewing realtors for selling our home, we did not want a so-so realtor, we wanted the best. 
And we got it in Debra.  We found her passion, determination and dedication to us reassuring that we made the right choice.  Our hearts were invested into our move, and the decision on where we planned to raise our family.  Debra understood that and put her every effort into marketing our home, following through on every request we made. 
Debra runs a consistent business, has strong follow through and has top notch support team with Heather at her side.  We were always a priority to Debra, who answered our phone calls or returned our calls in a timely manner.  There were days where we were on the phone several times a day every day of the week.  This is not some side job for this realtor, this is her business! 
When we got into a shaky situation with the buyer, Debra was there, getting down to the real issues with the buyers realtors, and making the action happen!   She did so much behind the scenes at time that we had no idea how much she truly did for us!   Her words and direction helped us get through the tougher times of this wonderful adventure.  While every moving story is full with some turmoil, we count our blessing that Debra and Heather were by our sides as we experienced our incredible dream come true when we sold the old and bought our new home.
 You are making a wise choice when you choose the Burke Team!

Dear Debra,
Sorry it´s been a while since we touched base, but it´s been quite hectic getting settled into a new life down here in Baton Rouge. 
I can´t believe you got our house in Budd Lake sold, not once, but twice even in this challenging market.  The outstanding marketing campaign really brought heavy traffic into our house and several offers.  You were always quick to give us feedback, and kept us up to date with what was going on, even when we moved to Baton Rouge.  I honestly can´t thank you enough.
I truly believe the only reason that we did get a fair price for our home was due to your efforts and expertise in how best to get the word out about it, and work through any last minute necessities-like the well water test, the landscaping, and questions from the buyer.  It was a great relief to both my husband and I that we picked such an outstanding realtor to handle our home sale.
Thank you so much again Debra!

Yours Truly,

Dear Debra & Michael,
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful way you have treated my family, both in selling my previous home and in finding and purchasing my new home.
You both took the time to get to know myself and my children, and our needs and desires in terms of a new location.  You took to heart our need to move quickly and to find just the right house that would not only make us very happy but also make it affordable too.
Scheduling was never an issue and you both went completely out of your way to make yourselves available for us to see new houses whenever I would call, even at the last minute.
It was truly a pleasure working with both of you.  I would never hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know.  In all honesty it was like working with family and I will always be grateful for your help during such a difficult transition.

Dear Debra,
Sheila and I can not thank you and your entire team enough for all of your hard work and dedication throughout the entire process of selling our home.  Although we decided to list our home just as the market was changing, you managed to put our minds at ease every step of the way.  You were confident when we were doubtful and you were supportive when we were anxious.  But most importantly, you were right every step of the way and turned negative times into positives by selling our home for close to our asking price while most other homes on the market sat for weeks and months on end. 
Thank you for helping Sheila and my three babies in New Jersey while I had to start my new job and relocate to Texas.  Thank you for helping me from afar with all of the property improvements issues, attorneys, open houses, contractors, landscapers, realtors, home inspectors, Township Officials and their issues and thank you for always answering the endless phone calls and the long list of emails.
We signed a contract for a professional and knowledgeable realtor that would sell our house quickly and for the best price possible - we got all that and more - we got compassion, caring, understanding and most importantly we got a friend.  Please do not hesitate to use me as a personal reference for you or your team.  I would be happy to pay you back for some of the endless phone calls and emails.
M. Medina

I hope this finds you and Mike doing well.  Kim and I are really looking forward to our upcoming move.  Things are moving along really well.
I just wrapped up the financing with Bob Bannon today, and I just wanted to tell you what a great job he did. He totally exceeded my expectations and really made some terrific recommendations.  Thanks for getting us together with him.
You've got a great team, they've all been top notch.  Kim and I are really fortunate to have you looking out for us!  Looking back I realize that fate's a great thing, had I not jogged past that house in Chester 8 years ago and called you and Mike, I'm quite certain Kim and I wouldn't be moving into our dream home in just a few weeks.
Thanks again for all your help and hard work, hope you and Mike will be able to join us for dinner soon in our new home.

Dear Coldwell Banker Realtors,
I would like to take this time to thank Debra Burke for her real estate expertise.  I have utilized her services in the past for two transactions and always find her to be knowledgeable, attentive to details and always pleasant to do business with.
J. Nocilla, Jr., M.H.A.

Well it has been a month now since we moved into our new house and we absolutely love it! Both the house and the neighborhood is such a good match to our family´s lifestyle, it feels as though it was custom tailored for us!
On behalf of Mark and the family, I would like to thank you for taking the time to get to know us and for keeping the overall real estate process so simple. Your approach was extremely professional; instilling an immediate level of confidence in me that you were looking out for our best interests.   The very first round of properties that you presented us, I felt were custom tailored to what we have vaguely described on our "wish list" and the end result was that we found the ideal house/neighborhood for our family.
You clearly know the business and were  an absolute delight to work with. Know that we appreciate the time you took to help us find the house, your overall professionalism and that you are on the top of our professional recommendation listing to friends/family should they find themselves in need a realtor.
Best Regards,
L. E. Williams

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding job you did as our realtor.  You were truly a pleasure to work with from our initial meeting through the sale of our home. 
You provided us with extensive comps on the area and gave us an honest and realistic assessment of the value of our home.  Your expertise helped us price our home competitively and sell our home in a very reasonable period of time.  We appreciate the detail you put into the creation of the marketing materials for our home and for the assistance you provided in showcasing our home to potential buyers in the area.
Thank you to you and your team for being prompt in responding to any questions we had and for providing us the realtor feedback from each of the showings of our home.  Your professionalism and service are remarkable.
J. McDonald

On behalf of my Mom, Aunt Jeanne, and myself especially, we would like to thank you for your excellent work in the sale of my Aunt Gertrude´s house.  Without you the sale of this house would have been more of a nightmare than it really was.
Despite the fact that I reside outside of New Jersey the sale of the house went extremely well due to your experience and helpfulness.  Everything that could possibly go wrong in the sale of a house went wrong in the sale of this house.  You generously offered to coordinate all the work and inspections and did so efficiently and smoothly.  You were always available for any questions I had and went above and beyond what a real estate agent is expected to do.  For that we thank you very much.
Throughout the entire house selling process we have been impressed with your thoroughness, kindness, honesty, and knowledge.  It will be our pleasure to recommend you to anyone wanting to buy or sell real estate in the New Jersey area.
Again, thank you for assisting us in this venture.  And good luck to you in your future.
L. Blum


We would like to thank you for the exceptional service you provided in listing our home.  Your knowledge of the area and superb marketing skills sold our home above asking price in less than 2 weeks.  We appreciate your responding to our questions so promptly.  Your professionalism and kindness helped to make our relocation less stressful.  We are pleased to recommend your services.
R. & S. Marlier

I wanted to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for all your help in selling my house.  You were always available whenever I needed advice and offered excellent suggestions.  It also helped that you put this on the internet.
I would gladly recommend you.

We recently bought and sold a house in Tewksbury with Debra Burke representing us for both transactions and what a pleasure it was! This was the second time we dealt with Debra within a 5-year period and we were so glad we chose her again. She is a thorough professional, very pleasant to be with, who made a very difficult time so much easier to deal with. I would recommend Debra to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house, and as a matter of fact, I have!

Well, our latest home sale is complete thanks to you!
I have to say that each time we buy or sell a home, you somehow manage to surprise us and that's why we keep coming back. We thought you were crazy when you told us what you were going to list our house for, way too much. But as always, you surprised us and the house sold for the full asking price and in  just nine days! Thanks again for the "hand-holding", outstanding knowledge and professionalism.
P.S. We will be living in our current home until "death-do-us part".If this should change I'll be calling you.

With Debra as our Realtor, we sold our house in Chester for close to our asking price in less than a week. While such a quick sale was amazing in itself, it does not begin to describe the prior 2 years of time and effort put forth by Debra on our behalf. Debra acted as the go-between for us for the extensive property improvements (house repairs, landscaping, and clean up), the contractor estimates, the appraisals, the listing of the house for sale, the showings, the inspections, the offer, and the closing. Even though it was often an unpleasant and difficult situation, Debra dealt with the issues quickly and thoroughly with patience, understanding, and compassion. She was knowledgeable and professional, and never failed to promptly respond to every phone call and Email.
In contrast, my house buying experience was a 3 month nightmare because the house was not listed with a Realtor. It was a "for sale by owner", no one had lived in the house for 3 years, extensive repairs were needed, and the seller lived out of the area.
I now realize how invaluable a Realtor is and how fortunate I was to have had the benefit of working with such an excellent realtor as Debra Burke.

Debra impressed us from the start when she kept searching for a home that met our very specific needs. Her professional manner put us at ease and did not make us feel that we were pressured into making a commitment. We certainly recommend you to anyone needing the services of a real estate agent.
F. & S. Kaenrath

You tuned into our dreams, put us on the right track with affordable financing, and brought terrific experience, energy and attention to working with us. You gave us an edge in a very competitive market. You followed through with genuine "whatever it takes" appreciated superior performance and dedication.
K. Yvinskas & H. Zerler 

My husband and I would like to express our gratitude for having had the pleasure of working with Debra Burke from our office. She assisted us in selling our home in Tewksbury and our experience with her was professional, amiable and productive. We have since recommended her several times to our friends and business associates and know that several successful sales have resulted from our recommendations. 
G. & J. Raimo

Our experience with our realtor, Debra Burke, was more of a partnership than a realtor/buyer relationship. She really listened to what we had to say. Debra gave us all the information we needed in order to feel comfortable with our decision. We never felt rushed and really appreciated the time and patience.
G. & N. Molina

We are thrilled with our new home! Without your work, perseverance and extra help, we would not be here. We always felt confident in you given your professionalism and friendly attitude.
J. & C. Harvey

This brief note is to thank you for helping us with so much useful information and guidance as we went through both the sale and purchase of our property. Each time we encountered something new and started to panic, your calming guidance led us to the proper path. You can be sure we're holding your business card to share with friends.
J. & L. Martin 

Debra has gone above and beyond her duty in providing her best service to me. She always took extra care in handling every detail. I feel she is an asset to your company.
D. Carroll

It has certainly been a whirlwind experience. Decisions- selling and buying with such speed will long be remembered. You certainly made the transition easier!
A. Woolley

We just wanted to thank you for all your hard work in selling our home. We are convinced that your "little helpful hints" on the presentation of our home and how to improve the "curb appeal" got us the best price and a quick sale. Thanks again!!
P. & K. Canavan

Thanks so much for all your very professional help in selling our home. We always knew we could count on you!

Prior to signing up with any Real Estate Agency, I was determined to employ the management practices I learned in my 32 years working for the U.S. Government.
I actually interviewed several "agents" before I selected you to represent me in the listing and sale of my home.
Most of the agents I interviewed started their conversation with "How much do you want us to list the house for?" My response was "How much do you think you can get for us?".  Three agents, after taking a tour of the premises and consulting recent sales of similar homes in the neighborhood, came up with a listing price within $5000 of each other.
As you may remember, my interview with you was conducted in the same manner. However, you did surprise me in that you suggested asking more than the listing price I had in mind. I even harassed you during one telephone conversation to justify your suggested listing price. The net result was that you listed the house for $30,000 more than the other agents.
As it turned out, you were correct and the house sold for $20,000 more than the listing price your competitors thought it should be. The price received for the house set an all time record for the neighborhood. I understand that since the house was  sold seven months ago, homes in the neighborhood are now going for more than they were going prior to my sale.
I made a wise choice in selecting you as my agent and I am taking this opportunity to thank you once again.
Mr & Mrs J. Roskoff

Karen & I would like to thank you for all your help in locating and purchasing our home. We never used the services of a Broker before and did not know what to expect. Were we surprised! You helped us find our house, and guided us every step of the way.
Six weeks from our first meeting, we were living in our new home! We would certainly recommend you and Coldwell Banker, to anyone who is looking for a new home.
Thank you again,
G. & K. Fox

Debra always seemed to be on top of things.  Since this was my first time selling a home, she not only provided her expert advice, but also seemed to genuinely care about her clients.  Although she had other clients, she always made us feel that we were on her top priority by always being there for us and promptly answering all our emails and phone calls.
Debra's expertise in the real estate field and marketing is exceptional.  She was always professional and always made sure all of our questions were met.
Thank you soooo much Debra!!!
Joe and May Chan

Debra made sure I was well informed of buyers' status prior to our attorney, which helped us in the hectic process of selling our home.
Norman Boris

Dear Debra and Mike:

 I am writing to comment on your agency’s performance during the recent sale of our house in Randolph, NJ.  In January of 2016, my wife Trudi and I listed this house with your agency.

 The service that you provided was outstanding.  You were instrumental in getting us a purchase contract within 6 weeks, and a closing within 3 months.  All of your activities were conducted in a highly professional manner and your responses to our questions were timely and complete.  For example, when we quickly needed contact information about the buyer, you provided it within ½ hour.

 Selling a house is a complicated and stressful activity.  But you minimized this stress by providing us with excellent support throughout the entire process.  And we will certainly recommend your agency to any potential new customers.

 Trudi and I wish you continued success with your business.


 Robert Sherman

According to Debra's reputation and ranking as the number one realtor in my area; I decided to meet with her and was extremely impressed with her ideas and knowledge; therefore, I decided to list with her and was not disappointed. Debra's team and marketing approach is extremely effective throughout the sales process. Debra lived up to her outstanding reputation!

Phil Ryan

We were referred to the Debra Burke Team by a former neighbor, I thank God we made the right decision. Debra & Team allowed our goal of selling our home a reality; she is honest, meticulous and was responsive to our communication and concerns. Follow her tips and advice, she will not steer you wrong, leave it to the pro. Thank you Debra

In June 2019, our 86 year old mother listed her home in Flanders, NJ with Debra Burke having met with her some time prior and selecting her as her preferred realtor.  Our dad passed away in 2018, and given mom's age and the fact that she had never sold a home before, this was an overwhelming  process for her.  I reached out to Debra early on to let her know that myself, (in Arizona), and my brother ,(in Illinois), would need to assist mom throughout the escrow process.  Debra was very understanding and patient and included me every step of the way.  This was a challenging and time consuming escrow, (the house itself is 57 years old).  By count, I received 40 e-mails from Debra during this time, and we talked by phone about as many times as well!  Thanks to Debra and her team, escrow is now closed!
