    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Bartonville, IL.

    Creighton has been absolutely incredible for us so far! He convinced us that it was the right time to market our home nearly 7 months earlier than we had planned it and we definitely don't regret it! Within 22 hours of putting it on the market, we had a buyer! In addition, Creighton was able to negotiate our dream home for the exact price that we wanted and was able to quickly resolve the few minor issues that came up during the home inspection. While we are currently dealing with a "difficult" buyer for our home, I firmly believe that Creighton will be able to resolve any issues with our best interests in mind. One of the things that we really liked about Creighton is that he never once tried to upsell us into a different home; he only showed us homes we asked to see, was honest with what he thought was a reasonable price for the home, and was quick to point out items that would be beneficial to us while bargaining with the seller. Up to this point, I would HIGHLY recommend Creighton as an agent and would definitely use him again in the future.  More Less

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in East Peoria, IL.

    The Burrell Dream Team is amazing!!! I gave them a challenge and the concurred it like it was no beal. I am a single mother with one income, less than perfect credit, first time home owner and little to put down. The dream team lead me in the right direction, held my hand through every step and was able to help me accomplish my dream. They are wonderful, understanding, professional and knowledgeable in all that they do. I highly recommend Crystal Hayes, Creighton Burrell and the rest of the dream team!!! Thank you  More Less

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Peoria, IL.

    Be very wary. He comes off very helpful, but ends up just dropping you. Another agent ended up helping me and helping me close on my house. She was introduced to me as his "closing coordinator" but ended up being an agent with 7+ years of experience and clients of her own!

    - The home I purchased was a foreclosure. He did not notify the listing agent that there was going to be an inspection so she was not able to get the water or gas turned on. We had to come back for a second inspection which was an additional $100. I was told by my new agent that she would ensure that Creighton paid for the additional inspection, as it was his fault that the inspection was not completed last time. I did eventually get my money for the $100 inspection, but my new agent ended up giving me a check and she made Creighton pay her. I was told at my closing that he had just paid her, which was about a month later.

    - My home closing was delayed because the affidavit stating that I was receiving a grant was not given to the bank - something Creighton should have put in the contract. This issue was compounded by the fact Ellie Mae went down the day before my closing. Had the contract been put together properly in the first place, I would have missed the Ellie Mae fiasco completely.

    Overall, I would NOT recommend him to anyone else. I have told other friends who are in the market for homes to steer clear.
