“Jonathan and Kristi Burke are the friendliest and most personable people we have ever met it is just enjoyable to talk to them. They are the only people that I got excited for a "business" call from.
We were initially intending on just renting, but after talking to Jonathan about the pros and cons of renting vs buying we chose to buy. I really appreciated the pamphlet that Jonathan and Kristi had prepared it filled in a lot of information that I didn't know and made me nervous about buying. So it made me very comfortable with the idea of buying.
Robert and Chelsea, Fredericksburg (Buyer)
“Jonathan & Kristi made a perfect team. They went above and beyond in meeting our expectations and needs. Kristi was able to meet our schedule from across the country and made sure she was always available when needed. They both understood that our needs presented challenges, especially being a military family, but were honest and realistic with our requests. The whole transaction from start to finish was smooth. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to purchase a home, especially to anyone who may not be from the area, or know anyone from the area. Jonathan & Kristi where our "friend who knows a friend" in finding everything that we needed. They came to the table with all the knowledge and information from both geographical standpoint, to the neighborhood shops and real estate happenings. We are so grateful to have been referred to the Burke Team.

“Johnathan Burke, was great to work with, his knowledge of the local area and of the locals, helped with our closing. If it would not have been for his knowledge we may have lost the house we were interested in as the mortgage company required us to up our credit score. Johnathan worked with the sellers not only to give us sometime to get our credit issues in order but also to help us move into the house in a quick manner before buying....he saved us from being homeless! Johnathan is a great guy, with a good team and a great outlook on life. ”
Sean Holliday, Stafford County. (Buyer)
“Jonathan went out and beyond his duties to make my dream come through.
Jonathan doesn’t give up. He will do everything he can to make things happen. Amazing!
Thank you, Jonathan ❤️”
Asta, Stafford VA (Buyer)
“Jonathan Burke is the BEST realtor that I have ever dealt with. He makes you a part of his family and is ALWAYS working on your behalf and defends your interests. As long as I live in Virginia, Jonathan will be my realtor. The team he has made, along with his wife Kristy, is amazing! You cannot ask for a better team to assist you in all matters of real estate. ”
Steve McClane (Seller)
“They have helped my closest friends, my family and also myself in the past. The ability to come up with a game plan and stick to a schedule is something that is surprising in this day and age. Execution of said plan and exceeding expectations that are laid out in the beginning, only add to the fact that anything Real Estate related, I know who to recommend and who to call first.
When I reached out and explained my situation, I had already come to terms with expectations on the result of selling the property. There was never any discussions of "How Much" I would make. There was only discussions of "If I follow the plan laid out on Day 1" the end result would meet or exceed my expectations. I have spent weeks trying to write this since the first email about filling out this survey and I have yet to find words for the outcome of my sale. If you would have told me the day before I reached out to inquire what I should do with the property, that the property would have sold for the amount it did, I would have laughed. I would have laughed really hard. From the first moment there was confidence in the plan, confidence in the execution, even when I had zero confidence. They saw something I did not see. I still can't believe it.
They set a standard in customer care. The first question in any conversation is "How are you doing?". They understand there is nothing easy about the process, but they never let you worry about it. They exude confidence in the way they talk, the way they dress and their over all ability to stay organized even when I was not.
My overall experience was amazing. I believe the outcome could not have gone this way with anybody else. The winning Factor in this Equation is the Burke factor. If it's not in your equation, do not expect Outstanding Results.
Jason Heisler, Fredericksburg (Seller)
“Jonathan and Kristi were on point. They got us the price we wanted, the property sold quickly, and we had confidence in their experience to get the deal done. It's a scary experience selling your house, they made it easy for us. Thanks!”
Mary and Bob - Stafford (Seller)
“Jonathan kept us level headed when he needed us to do so. He never let us lose sight of the big picture during the process of selling our home. Wear every happy with the results and would choose Jonathan as our realtor.”
Brian, Oakton (Seller)
“Jonathan and Kristi were excellent. They went above and beyond to not only complete our sale seamlessly, but also make the process as comfortable for us as possible. They understood and flexed to the demands of our schedule, and made every effort accommodate us and get us the best deal. We found our realtors for life!”
Jennifer, Falls Church (Seller)
“When we first decided we were going to sell our house, I had begun asking friends for recommendations as we had a terrible experience from our last realtor. Jonathan Burke’s name came up so I called and spoke to him and I was immediately sold. He was well organized, knowledgeable, and I could tell meticulous about the way he approached everything about this business. Every time I needed to speak with him I could do so. Anytime I had anxieties or fears he would alleviate them. He got us way more money for our house than I would have ever expected. I was extremely busy during this time and when I stopped by the house to do some work, my realtor was in overalls cutting the grass and doing yard work! Who does that? The guy found his calling. He went above and beyond for us and I am so grateful for him helping us during such a stressful time. I cannot speak highly enough of Jonathan Burke. I’m him I found not only a wonderful realtor, but a lifelong friend as well. ”
Jad Rutherford from Fredericksburg VA (Seller)
“My husband and I are so pleased we picked the Burke Team to help us with our most recent home sale. Jonathan has a passion for his trade and a communicative personality to match. We had worked through a very tricky short sale, and Jonathan showed compassion and commitment 100% to the end. I would recommend anyone to use the Burke team as their personal real estate agent for their next home buy! Thank you again for helping us begin the next chapter of our lives. ”
Jessica Della Puca ; Fredericksburg (Buyer)
“What makes Jonathan Burke stand out for me was, the fact that he knew I was maintaining two households while waiting for my house to sell. He took it upon himself, to cut and landscape my yard, so that I could have more time to spend with my family, instead of running back and forth between houses on the weekend. I can never thank him enough for what he has done for us.”
Marcus and Ginger Williamson, Fredricksburg VA (Seller)
“Jon was my husband's first and only choice for brokers which was fine because I tasked my husband with finding one. Given my work and home schedule I wouldn't be the one always available for communication so it was important to have someone with whom my husband got along well. When Jon first arrived at our home to discuss selling our property, he was well prepared with a profile of our neighborhood and recent sales. Honestly, selling and buying property wasn't on our schedule until another 2 years but when he showed us how easy it was and assured us of his aid along the way, we took a chance and now we're so glad we did. He helped us sell our first home and kept us well informed about each stage of the process. He connected us with his loan officer team who were just as helpful as he. He didn't mind rolling his sleeves up and helping my husband with any repairs needed to get the property ready to show and after the inspection. He's a family man so he made adjustments to accommodate our whole family even when that meant holding my daughter on a break from home improvements or entertaining my son while we signed documents. Even in the midst of familiarity as Jon and my husband have known each other from grade school, Jon maintained his professionalism which was paramount to me. This process from start to finish took about 6 weeks, that's just awesome! I will continue to recommend Jon to any and everyone I know who is in need of a broker. ”
Jennifer Davis, Fredericksburg, VA (Seller)
“He went above and beyond to ensure the sale went as smoothly as possible. He supported me through the entire process. As it was long and got uncomfortable at times due to extenuating circumstances. He remained professional at all times and was a pleasure to work with. When I buy a home in the future, I will look to him and will also refer friends to him. ”
“Fantastic to work with, creative in coming up ideas for helping our rather complicated situation. Really appreciate the level of involvement and hard work out into helping us get our house sold and get into another house. ”
Josh & Lauren (Seller)
“I requested that Jonathan find prospective buyers by any means other than an Open House. After a quick walk-through and visual inspection, Jonathan got to work with creating the advertising materials. He did such an excellent job with spreading the word, that buyers were requesting a showing even before the For Sale sign was in the yard. Each week there were prospective buyers and realtors stopping by and the brochures available to them were top notch. The photos and descriptions were so nice in the brochure, I almost considered keeping the house (almost)!
Another thing of note is that near the end of the sale process, I went on vacation out of the country. I informed Jonathan at the start and he took control from the beginning so I could focus on packing up the house, packing for my trip with zero concerns and 100% confidence that I was in good hands. Jonathan made sure all my closing documents were signed before I left the country and that I had a power of attorney so he could take care of anything that may have come up while I was away. Jonathan sent me weekly personal video recordings on the status of the process and we had a video call while I was out of the country to celebrate virtually when the house sold!
I can't praise Jonathan enough for his top notch level of professionalism in every form of correspondance. Truly Presidential quality! The personal video updates he provides are a unique and fantastic touch that I have never seen from any other agent. Jonathan handled everything superbly even while I was out of the country. That speaks volumes to his trustworthiness and personal approach to his client's needs. I have recommended Jonathan to my family and friends and I will definitely work with him again for my next sale or purchase.”
Aliesha Pulliam - Herndon, VA (Seller)
“Much more than a realtor, working with Jonathan Burke is like working with an old friend. Jonathan Burke has sold and will continue to sell many houses however, we felt like we were his only customer throughout the entire process. A veteran, family man, and tremendous realtor, he was truly committed to us during this process and I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone needing a realtor.
It is difficult to describe "care" in business but we all gravitate towards people and businesses that care. Regardless of the outcome, Jonathan Burke cares. He embodies service before self which is an inspiring attribute regardless of the manner it shows itself. There was a 20 minute time period during this home buying process where it almost fell through. Jonathan Burke never missed a beat. within 20 minutes he talked to two lawyers, both title companies, the county records, three new homes to look at, and set up appointments to walk through two rental properties. He cares and will be a part our your home buying success.
Jonathan Burke exceeded all expectations during this process. His attention to detail, care and concern for us throughout the duration of the process provide peace of mind from the start. We purchased a home from the other side of the country in a quickly selling market and there were times he toured houses for us and sent us live video so we could see the home and make a timely decision. He is on your side and saved us thousands of dollars throughout this process. I hope he is still selling houses when my children buy their homes.
Working with the Century 21 Redwood Realty Stafford staff felt like a family. ”
Michael Pataki (Buyer)
“Back in Virginia from Hawaii. Been looking for a home for months, and I could not find a Realtor that could or would consistently help me. Mr. Jonathan Burke was the first to really listen to me. He worked hard and never gave up even when I almost did due to unavoidable circumstances on VA loan requirements. The best part of him is he was always on our side to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. I highly recommend Mr. Burke to anyone who wants a realtor who takes them seriously, cares that you, the client, gets exactly the home you are looking for, that is within your budget, rather than quickly trying to "sell" you for a commission. Sir, thank you! Your generosity and professionalism made as homeowners in a few weeks. My wife is very much happy in a house she calls now home.”
Bernard Dumfries Virginia (Buyer)
“I choose Jonathan Burke to represent me when buying my first home. He came recommended and I quickly identified why. Jonathan listened to what we were looking for and thoroughly explained our options. He assisted with negotiations, lending options and closing. He helped us get ready to move and didn't hesitate to give us helpful tips to save us time and money along the way. He has become a trusted friend and he has shown me how a true professional represents himself and his family. ”
Stephen - Fredericksburg, VA (Buyer)
“Compassionate and very service oriented. ”

“Johnathn Burke is by far one of the best real estate agents that I have ever had a excellent experience, I say this knowing I have worked in Titlw and Escrow, as well as construction, he is professional, knowledgeable , trustworthy. With the recent loss of my father, and my fiance selling his home through a diff agency, Johnathan made this a smooth and stress free experience!! ”
Kimberly A Conley & Steven Atwell Fredericksburg , VA (Buyer)
“Jonathan Burke did a great job, was consistently attentive, patient, and timely. His knowledge and experience were much appreciated. The sale wouldn't have happened without him, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.”
KA, Stafford VA (Buyer)
“Jonathan Burke and The Burke Team are hands-down the best realtors in the business. They consistently met and exceeded my expectations of the home buying process. I felt comfortable and confident that Jonathan was looking out for my best interests above all else. I trusted him to only show us homes that he himself would live in and he did so. His steadfast dedication to us was impressive and I will not hesitate to recommend him to any friends or relatives who are looking to sell or purchase a home or property.
Not only Jonathan, but The Burke Team as a whole were phenomenal to work with. If we ever need to sell or purchase another property, I refuse to work with anyone other than The Burke Team!! They're the best!!
This is worth repeating...Jonathan Burke and The Burke Team are the best realtors in the business. They are the gold standard by which I will judge all other realtors I may encounter.
Pat, Fredericksburg, VA (Buyer)
“It was really great working with Jonathan and Kristi. This was my first home buying experience, I was expecting that the whole process was going to be hard to understand and a slow process. Jonathan and Kristi kept everything rolling really smooth and made sure I was understanding what was happening. ”
Thomas Dodds, Fredericksburg (Buyer)
“Jonathan took a personal interest in me and what I was looking for in a new
Residence. He treated me like family and spent the time needed to make
Sure I found the property that would suit my needs,within the price range I was
Looking, and the location that would meet my needs. They are an exceptional
