Bio:

A Kentucky native, Anne Burkin began her career in real estate nearly a decade ago at the beginning of arguably the most difficult housing market in U.S. history.  Undeterred by market conditions, Anne quickly become a top Westside agent and was named Rookie of the Year during her first year in business.

Known for her tenacity and discretion, Anne represents clients in Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Santa Monica, Malibu, and beyond with a focus on luxury properties.

She lives in Malibu with her husband and two children.

What do you do best?

Put my clients at ease.  Whether you’re buying or selling, real estate transactions are incredibly complex and stressful for everyone but I know how to keep everyone calm so they can make the best decisions.  Also, my clients also know that behind closed doors I’ve got their backs.  Their interests come first no matter what.

What makes you the best?

My clients love my low-pressure style and work ethic.  I consistently go the extra mile for them.

How will you stay the best?

I’m really tough on myself and have high expectations for the level of service I provide.

Biggest success?

Coming from a small town in Kentucky to living in Malibu and working the luxury market in Los Angeles.

Most challenging moment?

My husband and I sold our own property a few years ago and I was the listing agent - my husband the client.  That was a doozy.
