My friend recommended Alison Burke to assist in selling my house that I owned for 10 years. After our first conversation, I knew that Alison would be a great person to represent my interests in this real estate transaction. She was extremely positive, outgoing and someone I connected with immediately. She was laser focused on insuring my needs were met, as I had be recently laid off.
Alison made recommendations along the way but was always willing to listen and collaborate.She had a plan and laid out the steps necessary to make this transaction successful. This plan, followed to the tee, lead to much unexpected results. Alison called me the second day the house had be listed, and said an offer had be submitted. I never would have expected it, as I went away on vacation when she put the house on the market. In less than three days, the contracts had be signed.
Without Alison’s tenacious spirit and attitude, this wouldn’t have moved along so quickly. Thank you Alison for all your efforts and hard work.
Alison was recommended to me by my financial advisor. Within minutes of sitting down with her I was most impressed by her professionalism and expertise. I had a lot on the line with the decisions I was facing and Alison clearly conveyed her understanding and genuine care in helping me navigate the process. A true professional yet a joy to work with, having Alison as my agent proved to be more fun than I ever imagined selling my home and buying a new one would be. Alison is highly responsive, accessible, and her energy is infectious. She made the entire process a seamless and very enjoyable experience. Alison is not only my go to resource for everything relating to real estate, but also a great friend.
We have continued to refer Alison to everyone we know! She delivered over the top service with enthusiasm and grace. A true industry professional, Alison coordinated our entire move with white glove service. She is still our first call with anything real estate or home improvement related. What we appreciated most is that Alison never waivered in her professionalism and calm demeanor. She has so much energy and always a smile and positive attitude. We always had the sense that with Alison at the helm everything was taken care of and under control. We now consider her a good friend. Though first she was our agent and worked tirelessly to meet deadlines and make sure everything was running smoothly. We truly could not have chosen a better agent to represent us. Alison is outstanding in her skills and abilities.

Alison gave us the very best service we could have ever received. She is the real estate authority, period. Always professional, very high energy, exceptionally knowledgeable, and immediately responsive. Alison continued to demonstrate her expertise as we worked with her while selling two homes. Her skills with attention to nuance as well as industry knowledge were impressive. Alison absolutely exceeded our expectations!
Meeting with Alison for the first time I knew she was the right agent for me. She immediately demonstrated her knowledge and skill set expertly during our initial meeting. She was prepared with carefully curated information and stats and took the time to explain the process of selling my home. Alison is wonderful to work with, always very responsive, available and prepared. Her confidence in her abilities resulted in me selling a home I was ready to leave and finding my dream home for the next chapter in my life. Her expertise proved invaluable to me and it is with gratitude that I recommend her services to anyone that I am able!

We were selling my husband’s family home. It was such a stressful time and took months before we were able to get the home ready to go on the market. Alison made five trips to meet with us and help prepare the home for sale. Her interior design background helped tremendously. She was thoughtful in her direction, suggesting which repairs would make the most impact for a buyer to want to make an offer. Alison was very patient , calm and really listened to our concerns and helped clarify what to expect. More importantly we listened to her guidance and it resulted in getting the home sold for a price that we felt was fair in a reasonable amount of time. Her expert guidance and knowledge was immeasurable. We would recommend Alison to anyone!

Alison was recommended to us by friends who had worked with her several times. Interestingly she described the home buying process to be a bit like matchmaking. Alison exceeded our expectations in every sense and very clearly demonstrated her professional expertise. She expertly guided us through the process and made it fun all the way through. We knew we chose the right person for the job primarily because Alison was always there when we needed her, even sometimes when we didn’t have questions she checked in routinely and kept us fully informed every step of the way. Truthfully the matchmaking happened by us having the good fortune as having Alison as our agent. She was simply wonderful to work with and helped us realize our dream.
My husband and I relocated to Buffalo after living in several states for our military service. Buffalo is his hometown. We were referred to Alison by his family. She was not only our real estate agent, though a true friend in a town where I did not know a soul except for my in laws. Alison went so far as driving me around as we were looking for a home because I was worried about getting lost on the days my husband was not able to join us! We looked at dozens of homes before we found the one that fit our family. I learned so much from Alison as we worked together. Her technical knowledge of homes is impressive. She continued to talk to me as the process was unfolding so I felt guided and reassured. She prepared me for all of the emotions that come up during the process and helped allievate any stress I felt with making such a big move with a small child in tow. Alison was not only extremely professional and skilled but also such fun to work with! We could not have gotten through that time without her. She listened and literally held my hand through it all.

We were referred to Alison by friends who had worked with her to sell their home and purchase a new one. We were looking to do the same as our family was growing. Everything Alison coached us to do to prepare our house to sell paid off beyond our expectations. She made the entire process look effortless even though she worked long hours behind the scenes coordinating listing our home, showing us new properties, eventually writing an offer and negotiating for our new home, as well as all of the follow up with other agents, the bank, and attorneys. When the perfect house came up, she took us to see it the day it came on the market. We walked in and knew instantly just like she did that it was our dream home. Alison is so dear to us. We always think of her when we reflect on our home because she was so instrumental in us finding where we were meant to be with our family. She is still our agent for life, though now she is also a great friend, and has continued to work with other family members and a few friends. Alison is a true professional and her passion for her work shines through! We would absolutely suggest anyone looking to sell or purchase a new home should work with her!
