"We had a great experience with the Burton/Wood team as our realtors. They helped us buy our first condo (negotiating a multiple-bid scenario successfully) and then four years later, when we were ready to make the leap to a SFH, they helped us secure the one we wanted in the suburbs and sell our condo for a healthy profit (the condo sold after one pre-listing showing). The purchasing of our new home involved a lot of back and forth with the seller, but Meg and the attorney she connected us with navigated us through to the finish line. She also introduced us to a fantastic mortgage broker who helped us secure the best rate and provided a one-time free renegotiation of the rate because the rates were trending down. The Burton/Wood team provides a fantastic full service for your buying & selling needs" - michael kreuser12

Meg was absolutely wonderful! We were first time home buyers and had zero to no clue how to even go about buying a home - especially the very beginning phases. I was recommended by a friend, as I didn't even know where to turn for finding a realtor, and I couldn't be more thankful for that referral. She provided A LOT of recommended viewings (one of which we ended up buying), was always willing to answer questions and did so in an extremely timely manner, and basically was our go-to for support and ongoing assistance throughout the entire buying experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! :) - Paige Fox ★★★★★
"Russ was incredibly helpful while I looked for my first home. I was a novice to all things real estate and Russ guided me through every step of the process. He took me to multiple showings a week for 2 months until I found my perfect home. He provided great guidance on how I should negotiate price, and successfully helped me through a multibuyer bidding war to secure my new home. I highly recommend Russ's services!" - workmana919

"It really has been a pleasure working with Meg. I was fortunate to be referred to Meg by a friend and I'm very grateful as she has helped me through several chaotic twists and turns over the course of about 2 years. I was a first-time buyer and Meg could not have been more patient throughout the whole process. She always had great insight into the areas that we were looking, and I always felt like she truly wanted to find the best place for me. Meg is an incredibly hard worker and has clearly earned the respect from peers in the industry. On multiple occasions I had individuals (lenders, agents, attorneys, etc.) who commented on how much they enjoyed working with Meg. Couldn't be happier with my new place. Thank you for all the help Meg!" - kevindbeyer

"Russ helped us find our first home and we are so grateful! As first time buyers, my husband and I were very nervous approaching the Chicago suburbs market. Russ guided us every step of the way, from introducing us to the various suburbs to driving us to countless showings, putting us in touch with our lender, and then negotiating our contract with a tricky seller. Having grown up here, Russ is clearly an expert on the Chicago market and we are so appreciative that we had him to help us navigate this process. Thank you so much, Russ!" - courtneytodt

About BurtonWood Residential
For Meg Wood and Russell Burton, it’s about putting Chicagoans into their dream homes. As Compass brokers and founders of BurtonWood Residential, this energetic husband-wife duo helps buyers and sellers throughout the city, from trade-ups and out-of-town purchases, to investors and first-time homebuyers. Whether a client is selling their home or looking to buy, Meg and Russ fiercely—absolutely, unequivocally—do all they can to advocate for their clients’ best interests. “Every transaction has highs and lows,” says Meg. “We lose sleep so our clients don’t have to.”

It all starts with getting to know each other. Before any property tours or offers, Meg and Russ begin with a conversation—an opportunity to make sure their clients feel informed, empowered, and confident going forward. No pressure. No stress. And plenty of space to ask questions. It’s a client-first experience through and through, one that has helped Meg and Russ earn Top Producer status from The Chicago Association of Realtors each of the past seven years. 

Over the past few years, Meg and Russ shifted strategy when it comes to listing homes for sale. They know what buyers are looking for and have innovated to make their listings pop to minimize sales time while maximizing profit. Meg and Russ partnered with Jenn Desjardins (staging and design guru) and have heavily invested in pre market home prep to highlight their listings space and unique features and the results speak for themselves.

As members of Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Realtors, Meg and Russ care deeply about the communities they serve. Because, at their core, they want what their clients want: quality time with family in a safe place to call home. So, when they’re not tossing keys to their clients on closing day, they’re at home playing with their daughter, Tessa, or roughhousing with Annie the Vizsla.

Oh, and cheering on the world-champion Cubbies, of course.
