  • “As a first time home-buyer I barely knew the basics. I walked into Corey's office with a volume of questions, and he took the time to answer every single one of them, thoroughly and patiently. He listened carefully to the things I was looking for in a home and guided me towards properties that matched my financial and practical needs. I felt I was in good hands every step of the way, never rushed or pressured, but always informed and supported. The place was perfect for me, and when I moved away I knew I wanted to hold onto it as a rental property. Corey was the first person I called to manage the property. I can rest easy knowing that it's being watched over, professionally and attentively.”

  • “I have known Corey Burr for many years and have used him in the purchase of two homes and the sale of another. Throughout these dealings, Corey has always treated me with the utmost respect and dignity. As a result, I trust Corey completely and have recommended him to numerous friends. His extensive market knowledge and keen ability to understand our needs has enabled me and my family to find two lovely homes and purchase both at prices that were extremely fair, with terms that were very favorable. Lastly, when we sold our first home, Corey worked tirelessly to help us prepare the house, set a fair price that attracted a great deal of interest and to market the house relentlessly. The net result was numerous offers at or above our asking price with terms that were excellent. I highly recommend Corey to anyone.”

  • “Thank you for your effective and valuable guidance in the recent purchase of my home in Chevy Chase, Washington, DC. As a first-time home buyer, I was new to the intricacies and challenges that are involved in buying a home. Throughout the process of locating and then purchasing my new home, you were always professional, patient and pleasant. Given the highly competitive real estate market, I was particularly fortunate to have you present my offer to the sellers of the home we had identified. I appreciated your steadfast support, good advice and strategic input as we maneuvered my offer among the competing offers toward a very successful result. Your advice, experience and support were essential and, I am convinced, were instrumental in my offer emerging as the one selected by the sellers. I have been very happy in my home, and I am grateful to you for the important role you played in making the dream of my first home purchase a reality. Since the time of our first purchase, it has been a pleasure to recommend you to our family and our friends across the Washington metropolitan area.”

  • “I want to thank you for all your great work helping me to sell my house on Biltmore Street last month. In a declining market, we received two strong offers and sold the house for very close to our original asking price. You have now closed five purchase and sale transactions for me over the past 14 years. Your professionalism, attention to detail, and hard work have truly made a difference in helping me to find the right homes over the years. Many, many thanks for all your diligent efforts on my behalf over the many years we have worked together.”

  • “Corey Burr has served as our realtor for several years. In both buying and selling homes over $1M, Corey has been able to guide us through the details of planning, showing, and negotiating the best price for our homes. An excellent listener, Corey is always very knowledgeable and honest in all dealings, and he can anticipate potential problems before they occur. He always has been able to make sure our homes sell quickly and at the best price. His ability to time the market and work with other realtors and buyers always seems to amaze us. We highly
    recommend Corey Burr!”

  • “I have had the pleasure of working with Corey on very distinct transactions in the past few years. In addition, Corey has always made himself available to answer any questions I might have or advise me of trends in the real estate market so that my husband and I could make the best decisions for our family even if it meant he would be foregoing a commission. In one instance, we were faced with a very difficult seller, but Corey was patient and, when necessary, firm with this individual and eventually was able to bring both sides together on a deal that all considered a success. Another time, I needed to complete a transaction with as little effort on my part as possible. Corey took control of situation and handled every step of the process from A to Z, resulting in a sale within one month over our asking price! Corey is incredibly knowledgeable, organized and has the wonderful ability to make you feel confident in the real estate decisions you make.”

  • “We send you this gift as a sincere thank you for all of your efforts in support of our house search. As we told you on numerous occasions (but surely not enough), we so valued your integrity, service, excellent judgement and counsel, and tenacity. You are a true gem in a tough business, and for that you have earned our highest regards. We have already been talking you up to friends thinking of making moves in coming months, and would like nothing more than to turn these into referrals.”
    – Kathryn and Eric Zimmerman
  • “We bought two houses and sold one with Corey, spanning five years and some major transitions in our life. In 2002, we sold our early married condo in Dupont Circle and bought (with Corey) our first baby house in the suburbs of Chevy Chase (MD). Corey sold this house four years later and helped us buy a bigger home for two kids in outside-the-beltway Bethesda.
    Our experience with Corey was exceptional. He was quickly (I am talking a few interactions) more a friend than a vendor. We came to trust him completely with the largest purchases of our life. It is a trust that he never once, in even the slightest shade, failed to honor. I always felt that Corey represented our interests and never his own percentage. He never once, despite seemingly hundreds of open-houses (I lost count), evinced the slightest impatience with our dithering. He waited until we fell in love and then he moved very fast, just as we wanted. He was also able to adapt to our changing desire from a relatively modest home to one that we may be in for a very long time.”

  • “We have worked with Corey for many years now and we have great confidence in, and truly value, his advice. We recently completed the simultaneous sale of our prior home and purchase of a new home. The ability to close both transactions on the same day was a tremendous benefit to us but also raised numerous logistical and other challenges. Corey was invaluable throughout this complicated process and was masterful in arranging all of the details. Aside from his ability to clear the various practical hurdles in closing the transactions, and although the state of the market made things difficult, Corey was instrumental in coordinating two successful negotiations in a very short period of time.”

  • “The sale of our family home in Chevy Chase was a challenge in many respects, as it meant letting go of the place of so many happy memories in an unstable real estate market. In short, Corey was magnificent throughout. Corey's extensive knowledge of the real estate market and of the Chevy Chase area; his patience, realistic optimism, and creativity; and his graciousness and consideration for others smoothed every step of our path to a successful sale. Our working relationship with Corey was a pleasure, and, although we are delighted by the sale, we will miss very much working with him. We feel blessed that Corey was on our team.”
