"I am writing the letter of recommendation for Jory Burton. I met Jory in connection with the sale of my uncle's home. My uncle passed away in early 2016 and left his home to my sister and me. As we both live on the East coast, we agreed that keeping the home in the family was impractical and thus sought a realtor to assist with the sale. Jory came highly recommended by my uncle's synagogue. After interviewing several realtors, we engaged Jory.
The sale of my uncle's home was an emotional experience (the house was in the family for almost 40 years) and Jory was very sympathetic. Furthermore, not residing in California, Jory was able to educate me on the ways of the California real estate market (very different from New York) and to provide a very accurate estimate of the value of the home and supported his assessment with comparable transactions.
Jory helped ready the property for market by obtaining bids for painting and landscaping and by coordinating these services to ensure a smooth transition to the market. Jory’s marketing strategy was unparalleled. He exposed the property to the market by print and digital media and had amazing photography and marketing materials.
Jory was straight forward, attentive, effective and realistic. He immediately understood the various issues associated with the sale and his experience was critical in what was a rapid sale and closing. On top of that, his superior negotiation skills got me $200,000 over ask, 4 offers, all cash and a quick close.
Jory routinely goes above and beyond. He was always available and made sure that I was always informed of developments both large and small. He updated me after each open house and as offers were received. He also provided valuable insight into the various buyers and how to assess the offers.
Should I ever need a realtor in the Los Angeles area I would not hesitate to use Jory again." back to top
"To whom it may concern,
My husband and I recently purchased our first home in Los Angeles with the incredible assistance of our trusted broker, Jory Burton. I had known Jory for several years prior through mutual business contacts, and had always heard of his knowledge and professionalism, so when we decided to relocate from New York City to LA. we knew we would be in great hands engaging him.
To say we were in great hands would be a gross understatement when it comes to Jory.
Not only did he have a difficult set of circumstances that he expertly worked through (we had found a house that we had to move extremely quickly on in a multiple bidding situation. we were in NYC and much more ... ) but he also was incredibly patient. thorough and informative as we went through the process for the first time · from 3000 miles away.
Jory's knowledge of the Los Angeles real estate market and all of the nuances of making a deal are unmatched, he is tough when he needs to be and does not skip a beat when it comes to his clients. He is clearly passionate about his job. we very much appreciated him becoming personally invested in us and doing what it took to get the best possible deal done on our behalf. He is incredibly detail oriented and dexterously navigated the post accepted-offer process by our side. Jory was always available and accessible to us, I joked with him several times that I truly felt like I was his only client (which I knew to be far from the truth). He was realistic and straightforward and he got us everything we wanted and more.
It is rare to find a service provider who operates at the highest level in both skill AND dedication. Jory demonstrates that rare combination. I would highly recommend Jory to any business contact, family member or friend. I believe he is the best real estate broker in the world and I look forward to working with him for many years to come.

"I have bought, rented and sold houses with Jory for over fifteen years. He and I have gone through easy and also extremely challenging transactions. I have always been impressed with Jory's ability to calmly assess the situation and respond appropriately. It is a very valuable attribute during a time that can be emotional for the buyer or seller.
He has been a friend during and after the process. He is extremely professional and thorough in his marketing and follow through. Jory makes each of his clients a priority no matter how large or small the price of the home. I recommend Jory Burton for his knowledge and experience and also his demeanor and work ethic." back to top
Randy Pliler, JT Real Estate
"My company, JT Real Estate, is a property investment and management corporation of which I am a principle. We have been using Jory Burton for all of our real estate transactions since late 2005.
We have been involved in 14 successful sales transactions including both buying and selling of properties. Several transactions required backing out of the transaction due to unforeseen conditions or discoveries that would not allow us to modify or use the property as planned. We have also been involved in 9 lease transactions and some of these transactions required backing out of due to confidential circumstances that did not allow publication of reasons. Almost all of these transactions required a high level of confidential issues; either a high profile client (end user) or a situation, which did not allow Jory to talk or to market the client or transaction. All were handled with his full support. This is most definitely not true of other agents we attempted to use in the past. Property sales required special security and advertising limitations as well as screening of viewers entering the property. All were done with success and knowledge of the market place.
Jory has been asked to go beyond that which is customary, drop everything and even return from vacation to participate in a transaction. He has always been available and kept our clients identities confidential. We call on him at a moments notice and he remains available." back to top

"Jory Burton is the definition of a true professional. His dedication, perseverance and customer service will always exceed your expectations. He does what he says and then delivers more. It is so nice to have a Realtor who works with intense integrity to get the job done. I absolutely refer and put my name to Jory Burton." back to top
"I've worked with Jory on multiple purchases and sales since the 90's. No one works harder for their client. More importantly, he listens to what I want â€“ I don't think he showed me even one place that wasn't a possibility." back to top

"Iâ€™m an attorney and journalist in Laurel Canyon and have been in my house for over ten years, and am pleased to recommend Jory Burton in the highest terms for his service as a Realtor. Jory represented me when I bought my first house.
He was recommended by a friend, and did an amazing job. At the time, I didnâ€™t know whether I wanted to live in the hills, the flats, which neighborhood, what type of house, etc. Jory sent me on my own to a dozen or two properties, telling me â€śnone of these is for you, but I want to know your reaction to each.â€ť This was an wonderfully successful strategy. I learned a lot about my needs and desires, and chose to live in the hills.
As a result, Jory only had to take me to three or four properties. That was so few that I asked him to send MLS listings for every property in my price range, so I could double check why his list was so short. He was right â€“ I could tell that virtually all of the other properties were wrong for me.
As for the remaining properties on the MLS list, Jory was familiar with almost every one â€“ even in a hot market where there was an enormous number of properties on sale â€“ and explained why they too were wrong. There were only one or two that he didnâ€™t know, but when I visited them on my own, Jory was once again right. They too were wrong for me.
Also, Jory knew the listing agent, and had a good enough relationship and intuition that I was able to get the house at only $5,000 over asking price, which I felt was an amazing result in a very hot market.
In short, and in my experience, Joryâ€™s knowledge of the available inventory is fantastic, as is his intuition about what works for a client and what the buyer will accept. I never imagined that my first house would be so right for me. But it was, and is.
As for doing the deal and obtaining the loan, it certainly helped that Iâ€™m an attorney and former applied math and computer science major, and that a friend had recommended a lender. That background helped me with areas that I imagine are outside an agentâ€™s purview. Iâ€™d imagine, though, that ten years later, Joryâ€™s knowledge and connections in those areas too has increased.
Again, Iâ€™d recommend Jory without reservation. I had a great experience with him, and I believe and hope that you will too." back to top
