I already said to Marty and one of my buddies last night, that I’m eager for the first opportunity to refer someone to you because I am so impressed and happy with all that you did. I think you manage the obstacles that came my/our way with the best possible skill and strategy. Further, you tolerated and contained my reactions. That’s a unique accomplishment! Those who know me well, know all of the above is quite a compliment. Historically, I have not been a fan of brokers. You changed that with regard to your group. But your words capture my experience: “excellent” and I’m sure you noticed I have a BIG mouth and will use it to spread that around. So, I hope it becomes helpful to you as time unfolds. All the best. I am certainly appreciative of Marc O encouraging me to contact you !
"Keith, Christian and Norman,
Thank you all so much for a wonderful experience buying our first home! We learned so much from you all in the process, and we really appreciate how you patiently and masterfully answered all of our newbie questions!
We felt comfortable to take our time and make every decision with your sound advice and recommendations in mind. We appreciate never feeling rushed, or pressured in any way. Your recommendations to work with Guard Hill and Luk and Luk were excellent as well, as everyone played their part in helping this run smoothly. Norman was so professional, friendly and knowledgeable and he really taught us so much over the course of this process.
We really felt like we were in great hands, and we will recommend the Burkhardt Group to anyone who asks!
Liz and Prathap (8/24/2017)"
Thank you very much for the warm wishes. It was truly pleasure to work with you, Christian, and Norman. We appreciate all of your guidance, expertise, and support throughout the entire process. The beautiful handwritten card with the check that Christian handed to us at closing was a wonderful surprise.
I also appreciate your recommendation for Weidenbaum & Harari. Barry and his team were great.
I will definitely be sharing the positive experience we had working with you and recommend you highly!
I'll certainly keep singing your praises to any potential buyers I encounter going forward. I had a great experience with the Burkhardt group, and may continue to look for something as an investment. I'll be sure to sign in as your client at any open houses, and look forward to continuing as your client.
"Keith, Christian and Norman
Thank you for all the help and guidance through the process. We enjoyed working with you and think you have an excellent business model for people that know what they're looking for.
Separately, both Norman and Christian are amazing - very professional, responsive and knowledgeable.
I wish you the best of luck with the extended services. I have already recommended you to a few friends that are looking to get into the market, and will continue to do so

"Thanks so much to you both - it was a pleasure working with you as well... we wouldn't have gotten to the other side of this circus without you :)

"Hi Keith, thank you for everything! Everything about my experience was fantastic, and I especially appreciated your communication and how straightforward you made everything. Hopefully I can reward you with some worthwhile referrals in the future."
Bahar and I would like to thank each of you one more time. We could not be happier with the whole process. From start to finish, every single step was taken so smoothly and efficiently. We have been referring our friends to you and will continue to do so with great confidence.
Thank you for your exceptional service, and Happy Holidays!
"Dear Keith, Lance, Christian and Norman,
Please accept my deepest thanks for everything you all did to make my recent purchase of a Manhattan co-op possible. It was a pleasure to work with you all from start to finish!
To any readers, let me add my testimonial to the many that helped me decide to contact this group:
From the start Keith and his team were helpful and informative, very knowledgeable about buildings, values, and the whole process. Their strategy in letting people find what interests them on StreetEasy (why do this any other way in 2016?) and then taking it from there is brilliant. Let me just say that they really do provide all the services they advertise!
Lance made all the appointments to see properties so efficiently, and so convenient for me, then showed up on time or early every single time. When I decided on an apartment, Keith was so helpful on the offering process. We got a very good price accepted!
Then while in contract, Lance was there to facilitate my getting contractors/consultants into the apartment before closing, a tremendous head start in the renovating process. Christian took care of so much background work. Never a mistake or a problem. Perhaps most important, they were all masters of getting the Co-op Board package together, and believe me there is nothing more important to you than their expertise on this.
And then, before and at closing, Norman was incredibly helpful and fully prepared. Our closing was painless, and then Norman handed me a check for 1.5%, as in, a nice fat bonus covering so much more than my moving costs.
The bottom line is that if you are looking to buy in NYC, look no further than this Burkhardt Group, you will be happy you have them all working on your behalf.
"Dear Keith, Christian and Lance,
We just want to convey our heartfelt thanks to all of you for all the help you've extended to us throughout the whole apartment buying process. You've made a very stressful experience into a seamless and painless process and we are very grateful for the expertise, professionalism and patience that you have shown in this process. We just want you to know that we appreciate all the effort and hard work you've put into this and that we are thankful to have worked with you and gotten to know all of you. Good luck in your future endeavors and we wish you all the best!
Fikret and Sheilah"
"Dear Keith, Norman and Christian,
I just wanted to send a quick note of thank you to you guys. I really appreciate all of your hard work over the last (many) months, and getting us over line with the closing last week.
It is very exciting for us and there is no way we could have made this happen without you guys.
If we ever do this again (which we really hope to) we will absolutely be calling you guys first!!!
Adam & Ginger"
"Dear Keith, Christian, and Norman,
Thank you so much for the good wishes and for all your help getting us to our long-awaited goal.
It has been a genuine pleasure to work with each of you; the Burkhardt Group is exceptional for its staff members' responsiveness, sound advice, attention to detail, and even keels. It was immensely reassuring to know we had you on our side during a process that is always fraught, no matter how smoothly it goes. I only wish you were representing sellers when we first spoke years ago. I know you would have saved us a lot of grief!
Wishing you the very best,
Nancy and Mark"
"Hi Keith, Christian and Norman,
I'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your help and support in the last few months. I am very glad that the purchase happened in a smooth and timely fashion and also thankful for your helpful referrals (David's and Barry's teams).
I especially appreciate your patience with me throughout this process as a first-time buyer and will certainly and gladly refer your services to friends in the future.
Please accept my best wishes for a blessed holiday season and a great new year ahead. Thanks again!
"You, Norman, and Christian have been an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Honest, on point with your recommendations, responsive, and generally cool as $&!t.
We would love to meet you during your next visit to NY and grab dinner with all of you or at least a drink in our new home.
"Hi Keith and Christian,
Thanks so much for everything! Being new to the process I think it was pretty clear that we weren't sure what we were doing and were anxious about a number of things. But really glad that you were both there to guide us through the process from our initial offer to closing. Your timely responses and transparency were reassuring and the rebate is icing on the cake - now we can furnish the apartment!
Thanks again. Will definitely recommend you guys if anyone asks.
We would like to thank you, Christian, and Lance, for your excellent advice and support throughout this entire process! Your knowledge, efficiency, and professional guidance (along with top quality referrals!) are what made the whole purchase possible. We will be strongly recommending you to our friends and colleagues, and we'd be more than happy to write you a referral.
