More about Marilyn Burke

I began my career in real estate in 2004. It was a natural transition from my previous work as a weight loss coach, service provider, and teacher which involved helping others achieve their goals. Real estate is really "all encompassing" for me; and with that in mind, I developed one primary business objective: to create "a career and life by design" that fulfills my passion and purpose to serve others. My real estate journey has allowed me to mentor, coach and train others to be successful, as well as to develop and lead my team under the name Marilyn & Company. Real estate is ever changing and this has fed my need to take classes and stay current on the newest information and trends. I've also added Interior Design (currently completed courses at RISD) and Home Staging (ASP, IAHSP certified) to my list of skills realizing that the property preparation is really the key to getting ...

Marilyn Burke's Reviews & Ratings

Marilyn Burke

  • Marilyn helped me buy a home

      We met Marilyn at an open house, and I think that was a lucky day since we had a great experience with Marilyn as our buying agent. She is very professional and helpful. She always gave us time to explain the process and the next steps. She was especially helpful in navigating the issues around buying the house. We feel the only reason we could buy the house was because of her perseverance and experience. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house.

    • Marilyn Cannon Burke, is quite easily the best realtor I've ever worked with ... Her professionalism, compassion to my situation and overall expertise in her industry was simply off the charts outstanding ... Having her own personal family issue come up in the middle of the sale, she worked diligently even while away ... all without missing a single beat ... I couldn't recommend Marilyn Cannon Burke any higher or to enough people I know ... She and the Keller Williams team were a godsend to myself in a very difficult time ... When considering a listing or your own, please allow me to say that you will not have to look any further than Marilyn, nor will you be disappointed in the least ...Description of work:This my 5th home sale in my life and one under the worst circumstances of my wife's passing ... This, like many home sales, wasn't without its issues ... having set the opening market price, I received approximately 52 visits just in the first open house listing alone ... upon receiving the potential buyer information compiled, I was able to set a very competitive asking price based upon the feedback and get the home sold immediately there after ... Upon receiving an offer at the total listing price, it was discovered that the home had had some previous termite damage ... Undeterred my realtor both kept the buyer completely level headed, set my own mind at ease and sprang into action securing me both a contractor and exterminator to complete the sale all in record time...

    • Marilyn was the realtor who sold my house. because of her expert and artistic staging, which not all or many realtors can or do perform, the house sold at a price well beyond my expectations. She also repeatedly "held my hand" to overcome all of my anxieties, was always responsive to my queries, stepped in to handle interactions with the buyer and his lawyer, and recommended an excellent real estate attorney to handle the paperwork and legal questions. Marilyn also has a network of professionals to call upon, e.g., for handiwork, and speedily found service companies (e.g., plumbing and HVAC) if additionally needed. She was in complete charge of the sales process, freeing me up to focus on finding a new home.Very smoothly, from start (preparing to list and show the house) to finish (inspections leading to P&S and closing agreements, and negotiations for furniture to be left for buyer and thus not moved).

    • Re: When it comes to choosing a Realtor, Marilyn has my vote>Words are inadequate to express how happy I am with my decision to choose Marilyn to assist me in selling my house.We just hit it off!!!She made the entire daunting process so manageable. She is very skilled not only in the business world but also as a people person. She is a great problem solver as well as a generous and kind human being. Marilyn went way beyond my expectations by paying for some of the updating and decorating the house so it would show better. She invested her own money before the house sold. I would highly recommend her to others.Best regards,Alina R Canton, MARe: StagingMarilyn was my secret weapon in getting the price which I wanted by providing such impeccable staging for my house, which was not updated in 30 years - AND - she didn't charge me a penny.I love her creativity and ability to think outside the box when it comes to transforming a problem area into a positive feature. She's honest and keeps her word which makes a total package when it comes to choosing a "partner" who will look out for my interests. She's been such a blessing!With gratitude,Alina R Canton

    • Marilyn did a wonderful job explaining the process of selling my home. She provided excellent advice...from the successful auction of 32 years of accumulated belongings, through the "staging" process; culminating in an offer over the asking price!

      - Georgette Seller
    • Marilyn does an AMAZING job setting up a home for open house showings. Marilyn knows exactly how to stage a home in order to give its its greatest visual appeal and increase its market value. You can trust Marilyn as your realtor. I would not hesitate to refer my friends to her knowing that they are being placed in very capable handsDescription of work:One of Marilyn's areas of expertise is in home staging. I've seen many of Marilyn's homes first-hand and can honestly say that she does a great job transforming a home to make them show their best. From simple rearrangements to more involved preparations, Marilyn proceeds with competence and confidence.

    • Very well...Marilyn is always in tune with what my specific needs are. This is actually the second RE transaction I've made with Marilyn & Co. They are awesome!

      - Dan F Seller and Buyer
    • Marilyn is great - easy to work with, very responsive, and has a great team.Description of work:Marilyn helped me sell my condo and also helped me through the purchase of my new home (which was more complicated than originally thought!) She was very professional and always responsive when I had questions or concerns. She's very knowledgeable about the process and has a lot of great contacts to help out when additional information is needed. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a realtor.

      - Emily-Seller and Buyer
    • Marilyn was fantastic! For the sale, she painstakingly researched comps, and set the home so it looked fabulous. She has people for referral for anything the house may need. She ably guided us through the process, and we got above asking price for the house within a week after it was placed on the market She provided the same excellent care as our purchasing agent, researching the neighborhoods and comps, pointing out pluses and minuses of homes beyond what we could see, and stringy negotiating with sellers agents. We got the house that was perfect for us! Marilyn is personable, always available, and an excellent guide through the difficult process of both buying and selling. She cares deeply about her clients and their needs, and it shows in how she ensures even the smallest detail is perfect. She is amazing! We were lucky to find her, and recommend her as highly as we possibly can!

    • Marketing strategy and follow through well done.

    • My brother and I were the deemed the executors of my mother's estate after her sudden passing. It was a very difficult time for us and the process of selling a house was new to us beside being a very emotional one involving emptying out her house filled with her belongings and many precious memories. Not only was Marilyn professional, courteous and knowledgeable, she was also extremely empathetic, understanding and, most especially, patient with us as we learned the terrain of being a seller. Marilyn's expert knowledge and experience helped steer us clear of potential pitfalls; she could spot red flags we may not have, she had contacts in all areas of the industry (from buyer agent community to mortgage lenders and from movers to construction & cleaning crews). She always had our best interests in mind and made us feel like her only client when I'm sure was juggling many. We could not have done it all without her and highly recommend her.

    • To say that Marilyn is good at what she does is an understatement. She is not only professional, but she is diligent, passionate, and willing to go the extra mile. My husband and I bought our first home and had multiple hurdles we had to jump through before we were able to close on our house. Marilyn and Kathy were there every step of the way and were available to answer my questions day or night. From the moment we met at the first open house when we started our journey to even now, 4 months after we closed, she still is there for us. I would recommend Marilyn to anyone wanting to either buy or sell their house as she has your back 100%. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, and if there is a question you have that she doesn't know, she will do the research to find it and get back to you. I appreciate both of them and couldn't be happier with our home!
