Kris Burley

As a Buyer's Agent, I specialize in helping home buyers realize their dream of home ownership. I pride myself in keeping my clients fully engaged and educated throughout the home buying process and beyond. My goal is to be their expert negotiator, adviser and Realtor for life. That means that I work tirelessly to make their experience as efficient and stress free as possible while delivering the best possible results. Having been in the Real Estate industry since 1995, I have gathered vast experience with negotiations, industry relationships and a high level of knowledge of the local Real Estate market to ensure that my clients very best interests are secured.

Being a native Oregonian and living in the Portland Metro area for most of my life, I truly believe in Oregon's way of living. I get out as often as I can to enjoy all that Oregon has to offer, whether it's a day at the coast, a stroll thru NW Portland, shopping at Lake Oswego's Farmers Market or an afternoon hike. Outside of work I love to travel and what I value most is time spent with family and friends.

Client satisfaction is my #1 PRIORITY!

Wouldn’t it be nice to know that buyers touring your home have already been pre-qualified before they schedule an appointment? We know how frustrating it can be to make your home show-worthy. You may spend countless hours cleaning, only to find that the buyer coming through “needed one more bedroom or didn’t like white painted or stained woodwork!”

Over and over again, buyers touring homes listed with the Schwab Home Team have a good prior understanding of the value of his listings. They are prepared by viewing multiple professional photos, virtual tours, drone flyovers, feature sheets, property specs, and other information deemed important so that when the buyers tour, it feels like they are in the home for the second time. This is one reason why we provide a proven team of the highest quality professionals to complete the marketing package.

Like most industries today there is a compelling Need in real estate for specialization. For this reason, our team has a dedicated buyer’s representative, Kris Burley. Kris specializes in knowing the inventory on the market and matching it to our client’s needs. Without a doubt, and in this market especially, Kris works diligiently to uncover potential homes for our clients. Whether searching the internet, touring properties, showing properties to other clients, or simply reaching out to fellow brokers, she gets it done.

Time is of the essence! Over the years Kris has developed exceptional skills and insight into the buying process. This translates into objective and timely advice. It may be as simple as structuring the offer terms in a certain way through proven approaches to negotiating that get the deal signed. It may be dealing with home inspection issues that threaten to undermine a transaction, solid advice on boundary issues, radon, underground storage tanks, mold, siding and so on.

It may also be simply finding the right financing at the best pricing through our network of experienced mortgage brokers.

Suffice it to say buyer’s representation today in this complex market makes more sense than ever.
