    My Client Testimonials

    We were really impressed with Larry's homework he did in preparation for meeting and working with us, and he is really professional. Larry is a real go-getter, and it was obvious in how he prepared for meeting with us even the first time. Larry was totally accessible responding to us and keeping us informed all the time--even well outside normal business hours. ~ Lucy & Ron - Anchorage
    Thanks for all the patience and support! A full story into 2020 story! We will remember for ever... and you helped us through this ~ Franco Prats, Argentina
    Larry was professional when presenting a plan to market and sell the property. He understood the challenges of dealing with sellers who would be out of Alaska and explained how we could communicate to finish the sale. He observed the repairs that were needed before listing the property and offered to follow through with the workers we selected. Larry provided EXCELLENT support during this sales process complicated by winter in Alaska and COVID which added to the time this property was on the market. He was patient with questions and provided options for marketing this property. Larry responded promptly to all calls and emails. He followed through on providing necessary paperwork. He also called to remind us when documents needing signatures had been emailed. ~ Edna Chapman (from Anchorage, Alaska and now living in San Antonio, Texas)
    Larry Burke was fundamental in being able for us to find out home within a set of prerequisites. Guiding us in all avenues related to the home purchase and allowing us to understand the process made it possible for us to achieve the near impossible, meaning finding our (perfect) home and closing it in time for our international shipment to arrive and not having to go through temporary storage arrangements. We wouldn't have been able to get settled so quickly if it was not for Larry and his extraordinary skillet on the market. ~ Wouter Smith, Anchorage.
    Larry sold my mother's property and is very knowledgeable about the market and is always available to answer questions/concerns! Larry is very knowledgeable and always answers my questions. He went above and beyond with this sale - when the broiler went down and was leaking water, Larry kept checking on it until I could get back to town to get the plumber there. I will recommend him to friends and relatives! Excellent, very friendly! Excellent job again!! Thank you!! ~ Billye and Ron Sepe
    Thanks Larry for being so pacient during the whole process with the 4 of us, I can imagine how hard to manage a family of 4 with 3 of them speaking almost no English. We finally got to the end and we are happy with our new home, enjoying right now! Hope we can work in the future together again for selling or buying. And have our pending wine tasting: ARG/US/Italy :) ~ Franco Chesta Prats, Argentina
    Larry Burke was extremely helpful during the sale of our home. He was consistently available and overall knowledge of the local market was superb. I would strongly recommend Larry Burke to any of my friends or family looking to sell or purchase a home in Alaska. ~ Joe Wentworth Salem, Oregon
    I was selling my mother's home, so it was important to choose someone that understood that aspect. . I felt very confident and at ease with the way Larry handled this transaction! Larry made sure to explain every aspect of the offers, negotiations, closing, etc. I never felt uneasy during this process! The sale of my mother's house went so well, I have Larry selling my home. ~ Billye Sepe Anchorage
    Larry was amazing just want to thank him for all he did. ~ Alice
    We were buying from out of town. Larry personally went to several potential places and toured them with us via FaceTime. His knowledge of neighborhoods and market trends was invaluable. He even helped us out with recommendations for remodeling contractors once we did purchase a place. He is a person with patience, honesty and integrity (so is his entire team). You can find a better team in Alaska. ~ Maria Mandich - Fairbanks AK
    Larry was great to work with ~ Norm Anchorage
    Larry was very professional and courteous in helping me find the right place that fit my needs. I shopped online from Phoenix, AZ and Larry did a walkthrough with a few properties via face time till I found the right home. Ive since moved into my dream home and couldnt be happier with the exceptional service provided by Larry. I will definitely use Larry again and tell my friends as well. Thank you Century 21 and an even bigger thank you to Larry Burke! ~ Dawn
    Larry Burke was an outstanding realtor. I couldnt ask for anything more from him. I understand my home buying experience was abnormal but Larry was able to adjust and provide us with exactly what we were looking for. My wife and I were both so satisfied with our experience and were impressed with how flexible he was. Thank you, ~ Michael Hermann, Anchorage
    Larry was considered of my needs not the commission he could make from my purchase of my home. I find a home affordable and under my prequalified quote. I work with an agent before him that was trying to make me buy the most expensive home so they could have a bigger commission. They was not concerned about my wants and needs. Larry was very knowledgeable and also available to talk or show me homes within my preferences. He took my wants and need above his own. ~ Natalie Moore Anchorage Alaska
    Century 21 Realty Solutions (Midtown Office) was with me every step of the way. From my initial home inspection to code updates, handling remodeling projects, to sale and closing. Always professional and dedicated to helping "me". I couldn't have found a better Broker. ~ Jean Shaindlin, Anchorage
    a great guy that works hard to get you what you want and need. ~ will anchorage ak
    A kind and giving person that treats everyone with up most respect. Before he was an aquantence, but now he's a friend. ~ Connor Mobley, Anchorage
    Larry was extremely helpful. He kept me fully informed about the progress of the house purchase. Communication was made thru texting and emailing- it made the process easy and efficient. Larry treated my like family. This was my first home purchase and it couldn't have gone any smoother. ~ Pamela Brandner, Anchorage
    From the start, Larry was extremely professional and cared about what my family wanted/needed. Larry took the time to find us options that were realistic, within budget, and in quality areas. I could not have asked for a better experience and will most definitely recommend Larry to friends, families and acquaintances. ~ Brad Horton, Anchorage
    Larry is hands down the best real estate agent my husband and I have ever dealt with. I can't say enough good things about him. Unlike other agents that will try and stay towards the tip top of your budget, Larry understood that we were just trying to find the perfect home for our family for the most affordable price. He also took an interest in how much we were paying in closing costs, along now with other fees our mortgage company was trying to charge us. Why? Because he wanted to make sure we weren't getting ripped off. He ended up saving us a lot of money and made us more savvy buyers. He cared about us from the first second we became his clients, all the way up to us signing the papers. We even have come to him with questions since and he's still as prompt as he always has been. We are truly thankful for him! Be smart, hire this guy! ~ Darcy M. Palmer, AK
    I believe Larry Burke is an honest person and has a lot of integrity and that is why we sought him out when my wife and I chose to purchase a home. Larry Burke kept me kept me up to speed on any developments during the entire process and answered any and all questions in a manner which I would understand. Also, there wasn't a time when he wasn't available to answer any of our questions or discuss the overall process. I have and will continue to recommend Larry Burke for anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. My overall experience was fantastic! Thank you again to Larry Burke for facilitating and making the process of purchasing of our first home as simple and stress free as possible! More so, giving my kid and I a yard to play in!!! ~ Jason L., Anchorage, AK
    Larry helped these first time home buyers all throughout the process. His knowledge, patience and insight were invaluable to us! I would recommend Larry to anyone thinking about purchasing a home. ~ John Johnson, Anchorage
    A colleague in my office (Air Force officer) referred me to Larry. Another critical factor in selecting him was his familiarity with VA Home Loans. For any future real estate transactions, Larry will be my agent. I would recommend him to any friend or colleague who plans to buy or sell real estate. He was responsive, patient, and personable. ~ Mark Knarr, Anchorage, AK
    Experience with military personnel and their unique circumstances. Larry was able to handle each and every transaction for my purchase. Additionally, his file sharing and document signing processes were very clear, concise and convenient. As a recorded buyer in Alaska, I would recommend that future buyers first consult Larry prior to selecting a lender. In retrospect, I would have chosen his lender over the institution that I chose. Larry understands the local market as well as the lending process and his advise is particularly sound. ~ TG
