"I was referred to Collette and David for the purchase of my new home in Langley/Surrey B.C. by my real estate agent in Quebec. This was a federal government transfer and I had very little time to find the right house for me at the right price.
Collette and David are a great experienced team as they complete one another very well and provide you with all the assistance you need, which includes: information on the housing market, good and bad neighborhoods, value for money of different listings, quality of the construction based on the reputation of the builder, strata history if needed and so on. More importantly, they listen to you to find out what your real needs are and are attentive to your likes and dislikes when you start visiting houses. As a result, they are able to guide you to purchase the house that is right for you, a house in which you can be happy with your family and that fits your lifestyle.
Collette and David are very patient. They understand that buying a house you can call home is a very important task not to be taken lightly. They will support you every step of the way and they take pride is making this experience a success all around.
I would recommend Collette and David to anyone I know."
"I recently listed my home in Fleetwood with Collette Burke and David Herman of Remax 2000. Due to their professionalism, attention to detail and support; all that I had been told about one of life's big stresses became exciting and rewarding.
My home was priced right, shown by confirmed appointment, and sold quckly. I would not hesitate to highly recommend this team to anyone who is selling or buying a home. Thank you Collette and David for going the extra mile so many times,"
".............we highly recommend Collette Burke and David Herman as Realtors. We were very pleased with their help in buying the house that we selected and also with the quick sale of our house. In order to buy the house we selected, we had to put a subject to the sale of our house. With Collette and David's help we were able to acheive the sale of our house in order to finalize the sale of the new house.
There was not once that we were not contacted by either Collette or David in the ongoing process of paperwork and real-estate red tape. They let us know what was going on at all times. If there was anything that we did not understand, they gladly answered our questions in a way that we did understand. We were contacted in ample time whenever there was a showing of our house. We did not feel that we were every imposed upon at any time. It has been a pleasure to do business with Collette and David. We highly recommend them to anyone who is intending on buying or selling their home,"

"Thank you so much for your care and hard work in finding Mom such a wonderful home! You are one of a kind!"
Donna and Hans
"We are pleased to recommend Collette Burke and David Herman as Realtors. They assisted us in purchasing our first home in 2004, selling that home in 2007 and purchasing our second home in 2007. In each case, Collette and David were incredibly professional and worked exceptionally hard on our behalf. They were very knowledgeable in the real estate market and went out of their way to find us exactly what we needed.
We were particularly impressed with the work that Collette and David did for us in the purchase of our second home. We had very specific criteria for what we were looking for in a house. Collette and David took us to see at least 25 different houses and helped us make offers on three different houses before we found the right one for us. They were very patient during the whole process and were always looking for the best house to meet our needs. We are incredibly happy with the house that Collette and David helped us purchase and would not hesitate to call on them again in the future."
Mike and Melanie
"We want to say a big "thank you" for all that you have done for us. You helped us during this stressful time but the outcome was amazing! We love our house!"
Phil and Christine
"Collette, I wanted to write to let you know how much John and I appreciate the time and dedication you gave us to find our new home in Fleetwood.
We really feel that our home search must have been quite challenging, given that we were not entirely sure of which location in Surrey we wanted to be, and for this you gave us never-ending patience and professionalism. Your expertise in the house market and your knowledge of the new school our children woudl be attending was invaluable and could not have been provided by any other Realtor. Your responsiveness to all our questions and patience to our repeat visits of houses was outstanding.
Collette, all in all, I cannot really say enough about how we appreciated your help in finding us our new home-from when we first met right up until the present day you have been a very helpful and reliable Realtor. We would not hesitate to use you again in future, nor would we hesitate to recommend you to any and every one."

“The Herman Burke team worked tirelessly and professionally through the sale of our home and purchase of a new home, during a period of complex market conditions. They helped us understand the current market conditions and attentively walked us through the home valuation, staging, showings and offer negotations processes in a stress-free manner that greatly enhanced the selling and purchasing experience. We have worked with the Herman Burke team previously and they continue to meet and exceed our expectations. I highly recommend them for your real estate needs"
— Rob and Tracy
Collette went above and beyond and was responsive, thorough and knowledgeable, giving us the sale (and purchase) we hoped for.
She and her team responded well to our specific needs, focusing always on the end result and key steps needed to get there.
We'd recommend Collette Burke as a strong choice for anyone selling or buying in Surrey.
John and Teresa
David and Collette are very knowledgeable and experienced in the real estate business. Matt and I are first time home buyers who are new to this process and had no clue what to expect. They patiently guided through this journey, explained everything we needed to know and were there for us no matter what time of day. The market we were in was tough for first time home buyers. Just when we thought we had no options left, they helped us secure our home!
David, Collette, Dan and Adam were a pleasure to work with. They are truly genuine, kind and we couldn’t imagine having to navigate this intimidating and life changing process without them.
We can’t thank you enough!
Matt and Vivian
In the Fall of 2017, I was notified that I was being transferred from Ottawa to Surrey. As this was a Federal Government move, I needed a realtor that would be able to dedicate all of their time and resources to my wife and I during our five day house hunting trip. Collette and her family welcomed us to the Surrey area with open arms. Collettes entire family absolutely went the extra mile in finding us our perfect home. They took lots of the stress of home buying away from us by truly listening to our needs and wants for our new home and found us our dream home in the most perfect area for our family. Not only did we meet an incredible family of realtors, but my wife and I met some great new friends!! I will absolutely recommend Collette and her family to everyone I work with in the Federal Government!
Andrea and Jason
Collette, Dan and Adam were all wonderful to work with in buying our house. They all worked together to make sure that the labor intensive process of looking for a house went as easy as possible, they were always willing to look at “one more house”. They really quickly got a feel for what we were looking for, they consistently had great insights, and were always looking out for us. With their help we found the perfect place for a great price.
Collette was wonderful to work with when we sold our house. She was helpful not only with helping us set the right price for our condo, but she took the time to provide her input and help with staging our apartment to ensure that it showed to its fullest potential. She was reassuring and made sure she kept us updated all the way through the process. She was patient and helpful no matter the time of the day, or how silly the question was. We sold our condo in a week for the full asking price, we couldn’t have asked for more.
Brianna and Jonathan
Collette and David were fantastic Realtors and helped us through every step of our journey to buy our dream house. They worked hard to find places that met our long list of requirements, and patiently helped us navigate the overwhelming housing market over the many months of our search. We were always confident that they would represent our interests at every step of the way. They are very knowledgeable about all parts of the process and we would highly recommend them to anyone!
Karin, Nicky, Lara and Chris
We cannot recommend Collette, Adam, and David enough. They worked tirelessly, coming up with effective strategies to help sell our home in what was a very challenging market. Their combined years of experience, and forthright approach helped to allay any anxieties that we may have had. Herman and Burke are an excellent team to have at your back and besides that, they’re just genuinely really nice people.
Laura and Shawn
Thank you Collette!
Collette and David were so very helpful and patient during our home search. We were not sure which area we wanted to be in, and they were so helpful in giving good advice in sorting all the options out. Collette always responded promptly to any questions we had, and was always ready to show us any home we were interested in. When it came time to list our home, the whole team helped out with the marketing and open house. The house was sold quickly, which reduced any stress we might have had. Collette and David are always professional, easy to work with, and very patient. We highly recommend them to anyone.
Donna and Gary
"David and Collette were recommended to me by a co-worker, I couldn't have found a better team. I was a first time home buyer and knew next to nothing about the process, Collette guided me through everything with the utmost patience and knowledge. She helped me find the perfect home for my needs, I couldn't be happier. She also led me to a Fantastic Mortgage Broker and Home Inspector. If you are looking for a good Realtor, this is the team I would recommend."
It has been just a year since we purchased our home with Collette. She said “the right one will come”, words of advise I heard several times while we searched the market for our new home. Our adventure with Collette started Oct 2017 and it took us on a wild ride. We lost out in several biding wars and withdrew our offer after reviewing the reports on one property. During our journey Collette always went above and beyond, including her family when she was unable to attend a viewing. The professionalism the Herman & Burke team showed us was above and beyond anything I have ever experienced. I have referred them and will continue too. The business friendship has turned into a personal friendship and I feel very honoured to have them in my world.
Truly amazing family and wonderful people.
Thanks for your all the patience during the journey and the right one did come!
Love Michelle & Kim
