About Us: The Burkhardt Group.

Our Goal
The Burkhardt Group offers cost-conscious property owners and homeseekers a flexible, economical alternative to the big Manhattan brokerage firms. Our mission is to bring owners together with buyers and tenants in the most efficient manner possible, so all parties receive outstanding value.

Our View
During the past ten years, the Internet loosened the real estate industry's information monopoly. Property listings, comparable sales, valuation models and other resources are now readily available to non-professionals. Although rising prices - especially in Manhattan - helped preserve the dominance of full-commission brokers, a new generation of data-savvy customers began to question the traditional model.

As prices become more realistic, reducing transaction costs is a priority for owners, buyers and renters. The technology that emerged during the recent boom years can be used to drive those costs down. Unlike most brokerage firms, The Burkhardt Group was built for normal times - not to cash in on an overheated market. We offer you the benefits of lower costs through technology and reduced overhead... NOW.

Our Promise
With The Burkhardt Group, you get the best value for the services you need. You never pay for extras you don't want, and we will never use your money or your property to build a fancy brand name for ourselves.

Our agents will tailor a service package to meet your personal real estate goals. When we work within the traditional commission model, we offer rebates and other rewards to share the benefits of our low overhead.

Equally important, our fee structure and compensation plan reward transparency and customer focus. We want to help you make decisions that benefit you, not a broker. By unbundling fees and narrowing the gap in incentives and prestige between sales and rentals, we encourage our professionals to remain unbiased as you consider your real estate options. Selling, buying, renting, even waiting are equally valid choices. All deserve fair consideration and outstanding service.

To ensure your satisfaction, The Burkhardt Group has assembled a team that blends deal-closing experience with technical expertise and personal knowledge of neighborhoods and properties. We equip our professionals with the same tools full-commission brokers use, and support them at every stage of the client relationship. In short, the Burkhardt Group can do everything the big firms do, at a fraction of the cost.
