"★★★★★
"My wife and I are profoundly grateful that Catherine Burgess agreed to become the real estate agent for the sale of our house in the Newlands region of Boulder. Catherine was always amiable and always very well-informed about the latest trends—a talent that turned out to be important because the market took a rather significant turn just before we were ready to sell. She was able to back up her pricing recommendations with a sophisticated analysis of very current data. (You can see how well she can size up the local market by signing up for her email newsletter; the email address is available upon request from the Burgess Realty office.) Catherine would respond immediately and effectively to our questions and requests for assistance, and she was often backed up by her husband, Andrew Burgess, who’s also a real estate agent, and by Marcia, the friendly and professional office assistant at Burgess Realty. Catherine would arrange for Marcia to who send us information about resources in the local area who could help us get the house ready for market. Their familiarity, based on years of experience, with the most reliable resources in the local area especially important when a few problems developed in getting our house ready for market. But that’s all behind us now. Some nice people bought our house! We’re thoroughly pleased with the attentive services we received from Catherine, Andrew, and Marcia at Burgess Realty."

★★★★★
"Catherine, Andy, and Marcia are amazing! They helped us find our new home that we love and made the process as go as smooth as possible. They also helped sell our old home quickly despite the current uncertainties in the market. Catherine and Andy provided great advice to help us make key decisions in the buying/selling process. And Marcia was so good at keeping everything organized and making sure all the documents and data were flowing to the right people on schedule. Just an absolute pleasure to work with all around."

★★★★★
"Andy, Catherine and the entire Burgess Group at Compass were such a pleasure to work with...Not only are they very knowledgeable about the area and the home buying process but they make the experience so easy and seamless for their clients. We were able to put our full trust in them and let them guide us appropriately...This is the second time we have entrusted the Burgess Group at Compass with our search for the perfect home. Once again, they did not disappoint. We would never use anyone else and highly recommend them to the first time or seasoned homeowner. We love our new home!"

★★★★★
"Andy Burgess was a huge help to us being able to acquire an investment property in Boulder County recently. His knowledge of the market place and getting answers to all our picky questions when it came time to make an offer made us feel comfortable and informed throughout the process. I would highly recommend Andy to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the area."

★★★★★
"Andy was great to work with. Extremely prompt and proactive. He provided all of the information I asked for and answered all of the questions I had. I went from asking Andy if he had time to work with me to closing on a house within 3 weeks. Highly recommended."

★★★★★
"Burgess Group proved to me over and over again how critical it is to have an experienced and professional realtor on your side in the home buying process, especially if it is your first time. Our work with Burgess began with a meeting with Andy to learn if we were a good fit. By the end of that meeting, we knew we had found a great team of real estate professionals! Andy was an incredible resource through all the home tours, teaching us what to look for and helping us figure out how much different repairs or modifications would cost. Once we were ready to put down an offer, Andy was a powerful negotiator who fought for our needs and got us an outstanding deal on our first home. Andy took time even through an injury he suffered to be a source of advice and wisdom that helped my wife and me make the best decisions. Catherine saw us through the final stages of closing. Her knowledge and experience with the process were so helpful, and her advice and warm, professional demeanor helped calm our closing day jitters! Marcia went above and beyond to call inspectors and make arrangements with the seller to get us through the inspection process. She also never hesitated to answer our questions or help out when we needed it. I highly recommend anyone trying to purchase real estate in this fast-paced, hectic corner of Colorado consider giving Burgess Group a try. They treat you like old friends and give you the very best of their professionalism, experience, and insight. Thanks Andy, Catherine, and Marcia!"
