  -Attorney William Bonn, Client

"I could not have asked for a smoother or more enjoyable transaction on the sale of my home. You sold it quickly and at the price I had wanted. Thank you!"

  -Stella Goulding, Client

"We love the house and want to thank you again for all you did to make our "dream come true"! We refer everyone we even think might be moving to you."

  -Bruce and Pam Larchez, Client

"We are writing to tell you of the exceptional level of service we have been afforded by Mr. Jay Burnham and your Beverly office. We have found that one key that differentiates good from exceptional service is attention to the customer after the sale. Not only was Jay instrumental in helping us purchase an incredible antique home, he has been unfailing in his support after the sale. Jay deserves outstanding mention for his service."

  -John and Sonia Kuenzig, Client

"What convinced us to work with Jay was his knowledge of North Shore real estate. We were very pleased with his ability to maintain a high level of trust throughout the process and we would highly recommend his services."

  -Reggie Prioli, Client

"Jay Burnham could be the finest real estate agent I have ever dealt with. He was the sellers' agent for the house I recently purchased in Rockport. He treated the sellers with such kindness, respect and honesty that I decided to use him as the listing agent for my old house, also in Rockport, even though he is not a local Realtor. The experience with my sale was very positive. I feel that Jay tells the truth and that is the single most important thing to me."

  -Dr. Nicholas Della Russo, Client

"We chose Jay because of his reputation, experience, diligence and work ethic. What we liked best was Jay's care. He cared for our home, and for us. He looked out for our best interests all the time. If you listen to him and follow his strategy and advice, you'll be successful with your sale. We thank him for everything!"

  -Bob and Dorothy Rand, Client

"The best part of our real estate experience was meeting Jay. Having him represent us as a Buyer's Broker was great experience. We found him to be a person of integrity and now count him as a friend."

  -Josette Gaudreau & Gordon Sato, Client

"To sum up our experience and to invoke the old adage, Jay went above and beyond the call of duty! He is tremendously knowledgeable about North Shore real estate. He was always available and accessible when necessary - and was never too aggressive or assertive when it came to giving advice or making suggestions. He is a team player and always took prompt action (e.g., price adjustment, negotiation, etc.) after thoughtful consideration and discussion of all market factors. Not only was he knowledgeable, professional and got the job done, he was a kind and genuine friend during what otherwise could have been a very stressful, anxiety producing process."

  -Peter and Michaela Brockmann, Client

"Jay Burnham made the process of selling my house painless! I especially appreciated his professional manner, extensive knowledge and positive attitude."

  -Susan Wilhelm, Client

"Jay Burnham made a difficult situation, the sale of the 'old homestead', much more tolerable. He is a real asset to your company and to his clients. He was forthright from beginning to end and a pleasure to do business with. I highly recommend him to any and all that may need a Realtor."

  -robert C. Nyland, Client

"Thanks for your calm presence and advice through the process. I still don't understand why everyone thinks buying a house is so hard...maybe they don't have you and the fab Coldwell Banker team!"

  -Patrice Donahue, Client

"Dear Jay…Just a note to say thank you for your advice, compassion and availability. Your expertise, knowledge, professionalism and honesty were outstanding! We would strongly recommend you and Coldwell Banker …Bob and Irene Lee"

  -Bob and Irene Lee, Client

"After having dealt with another real estate company for several months, it was a pleasant surprise to discover the vast difference between companies - and agents. We don't believe there is anyone who could do a better job than Jay Burnham. We can't thank him enough for all his efforts on our behalf."

  -Henry and Carol Hincman, Client

"Jay Burnham provided the highest quality service we have ever experienced from a sales representative. He went out of his way to handle any open issues and to make the process pleasant. Jay truly understands what service is all about and he has the commitment to follow through in every way. We would definitely use his help again."

  -Ian and Anne Hayes, Client

"Having bought and sold more than 20 properties, we feel well qualified to recommend Jay Burnham as the absolute best Realtor with whom we have ever been in contact. Jay exhibits all the qualities you would expect from a top-notch broker. He is the consummate, professional real estate agent. He is enormously knowledgeable, dedicated, disciplined, and has a great personality to boot. All in all, our association with Jay Burnham and Coldwell Banker has been the very best realty experience in over 50 years of buying and selling. He “knocked it out of the park!! We feel we have made a friend for life and love him dearly."
