We recently completed the successful sale of our home in a very distressed Bakersfield, California housing market.

I was extremely impressed by the two people who were absolutely critical in making this transaction successful; Tina Plath with GMAC and Shay Brandon Burke with Touchstone Realty.

Tina took over the relocation coordination literally at the last minute in Chevron's transfer from Sirva to GMAC. She did a remarkable job in keeping the momentum going and minimizing any re-work on our part. Obviously we were very concerned to be so far into the process and hear of the change in relocation companies. We were extremely pleased with the outcome -- Tina did not miss a beat.

Shay BrandonBurke was simply the best Realtor we have ever worked with !! (and this is our 11th relocation in 25 years). It was not luck that we were able to sell our house in this market or that we received much more than the appraisers or other experts ever thought possible. While we held firm on our minimum - He was working tirelessly with open houses spending many of his weekends over a three month period to find us a buyer. When the purchase nearly fell through because of the Buyers agent, Brandon was able to recover the deal through his relationship with the buyers. We would recommend that GMAC include Shay Brandon Burke, Touchstone Realty on your preferred list for future Chevron relocations to and from the Bakersfield area.

Thank you again -- we could not be more pleased with how this relocation was managed.

Sincerely,
Don and Crystal Puckett

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Bakersfield, CA.

Shay was with us every step of the way in the sale of our previous home as well as the search for and purchase of our new home. We looked at many homes before our final purchase and Shay was always willing and able to work with our schedule to set up appointments to see new listings. When times were frustrating, Shay was always there for us with friendly advice to ease the pain of searching for and buying a home. He has a fun and light hearted attitude that made house hunting very enjoyable. Above all, he is an extremely knowledgeable and professional agent and we most highly recommend Shay to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Bakersfield, CA.

Shay is very professional and hard working. We had complications with the sale of our home and Shay went above and beyond in assisting us with our options. He was always looking out for our best interest and quickly found solutions to problems that arose. He is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. We will absolutely use Shay again and would highly recommend him to anyone with real estate needs. Give him a call, you will be so glad you did!  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Bakersfield, CA.

We cant say enough good things about Shay Burke. He was right on in anticipating the market and sold our house for asking price in a short time. Shay took care of our delicate needs with our tenants as well, making both parties happy. He had our best interest in mind and was able to lock in our buyer to seal the deal. His communication, knowledge and professionalism are outstanding and we will definitely use his services with any future real estate transactions.  More Less
