Nancy, thank you so much for working with us on the recent sale of our condo. With the uncertain market, we were especially nervous about our ability to get a desirable price in the short timeframe we needed. You did such a great job aggressively marketing our property - we were pleased to obtain competitive offers above our expected price within less than a week. We also appreciate how respectful you were of our home and belongings (even when we accidentally left some things out or forgot to take care of flowers that had certainly passed their time!!) You always took the time to explain every consideration at each step in the process, and provided excellent guidance on the decisions we needed to make. It was not only very comforting to know we were in good hands, but we also had a lot of fun in the process! Extra special thanks from Eric for calming Sully's nerves about the unique disclosures that kept her up a couple of nights before we spoke with you!!

I’ve always believed that when purchasing a home you are really buying the neighborhood. Nobody understands this better than Nancy. Nancy knows and appreciates all the various neighborhoods in San Francisco, and what makes them great to live in. Most realtors just want to close the sale and move on; Nancy takes pride in helping you find a home that fits your lifestyle and needs.

Nancy helped me understand the market and advised me towards not only a smart long-term investment but also a home that fit my style. She knew for what I was looking and when we found it, there was no question that it was a fit.
Nancy went above and beyond her responsibilities as my real estate agent. I had such a great home buying experience with Nancy that I now consider her a friend. As one expects of an agent, Nancy is extremely knowledgeable about the San Francisco housing market and helped me navigate through the at times daunting process of home buying. But, Nancy is a cut above the rest because she took it upon herself to do more than the average agent. She is someone in whose abilities I could have full confidence. In working with Nancy, I noticed that she fortifies genuine relationships with all of her clients, listening to their preferences and always keeping their best interests in mind. Nancy is exceptionally dedicated to her clients, sensitive to their concerns, and astute at helping them get the best deals. In short, Nancy will not consider her job complete until you are satisfied.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Nancy Vernon-Burke to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in San Francisco. She is a consummate professional who takes customer service to the next level. Nancy's knowledge and good humor made the process of finding and purchasing my first home fun and relatively easy. She constantly went out of her way to keep me apprised of options within the parameters that I provided, while also letting me know what else was available. She never held back her honest opinion and negotiated hard to get me the best deal possible. After just a few weeks of looking, I made a purchase in a neighborhood that I hadn't considered but was directed to because Nancy believed I would like it. She was absolutely right! I now have my perfect home in the perfect neighborhood. I am lucky to have met my "realtor-friend" Nancy and am repeatedly referring her to my closest friends.

Nancy, we so appreciate all you did to help our condo sale and ‘move out’ go smoothly and effortlessly. You really did go ‘above and beyond’. Thank you!

"Nancy made buying my first home a breeze. She went above and beyond to help us deal with a hard to reach seller and tenants that were currently living in the property in such a way that all parties involved benefited. Even now, several months after my condo purchase, Nancy is there to help me find the contractors and services that I need to help me do the renovations I have planned for my condo. I will definitely use Nancy again for my next home purchase or sale and you should too."
We just wanted to send you a note to say how grateful we are for all your hard work in helping us find our first home. It’s really exciting to finally be homeowners!
Thanks again for everything!

There is no way that I could thank you enough for everything you did to make the buying and selling of houses possible. You kindness, generosity of spirit, and warm and loving demeanor are all gifts that keep on giving. We are tremendously grateful to your for your patience and perseverance – none of this would have been possible without them. We thank you for your ongoing generosity, for everything you do to make us happy and comfortable. You truly are “one in a million” and I want you to know how much we love and appreciate you. With love and gratitude.

If you are interested in buying or selling your home, we would heartily recommend you enlist the assistance of Nancy Vernon-Burke of Zephyr Real Estate.
Two years ago Nancy sold our condo in San Francisco. She helped us price it condo right (as high as we might expect to get) and stage it for showing. She was aggressive in finding buyers; showing it at every chance, holding open houses, advertising etc. She negotiated top dollar in our sale, and went the extra mile to resolve any problem that arose.
Not only is she honest, professional and proactive, she’s a charming person and has become a friend. We are now back in the market for another condo, and Nancy is the only one we would consider to represent us.

Thanks for your amazing work in helping me sell my condominium and buy a fabulous high-rise home on Nob Hill. You held it together when I was falling apart, and you stepped in and took he reigns when other agents let things fall through the cracks. And, when the deal was done, you stuck around to help out when other agents would have hopped in their Mercedes and driven off. You helped me find a mover. You made sure everything in my new home was in working order. You even offered to walk my dog while I dealt with a life in complete chaos and transition. During the months-long events, I appreciated your unfaltering willingness to sit down and pore over documents with me – to make sure no detail was missed and that I understood every nuance of what was taking place. I’ve worked with some agents I really liked and whose performance I didn’t think would be surpassed. But you beat them all! Thanks to you, I made it through the process mostly sane, usually happy, and definitely satisfied. I hope you’re proud of your efforts!
Nancy expertly represented our interest every step of the way, from property inspections to contract negotiations to the closing table. “Going above and beyond” does not begin to describe the service that Nancy provides. Even the word “service” isn’t quite right, because with Nancy, you find a friend, not just a real estate agent. She truly provides the best balance of industry knowledge and personal attention. We cannot recommend her highly enough for any future buyers or sellers in the San Francisco area.

It was a pleasure working with you. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge, guidance and above all, time. I really appreciate all your help and the education you gave me about smart purchasing. It was a great experience, one that I will be sure to enter into again someday!
From our first meeting through close of escrow, Nancy was there every step of the way. She explained my options, took care of the details, and kept me up to date on what was taking place. She put together a detailed and workable sales strategy and it produced favorable results. She understands the market, and is a professional real estate agent in every sense of the word. I highly recommend her.
