Past Seller's Letters
-Daina Burness is a wonderful human being inside and out. She is a trustworthy patient friend, not just a broker. She behaves you the way she would treat her own family. I have bought, rented and sold my property with her. Would do it again 100 times.
-I worked with Daina when I bought this house. She was terrific! Helped me with a variety of obstacles. She kept in touch over the years, sending greetings during the holidays. She always left a good impression.
Daina is very knowledgeable, communicative and personable. She is an outstanding realtor and I am extremely satisfied with her performance.
I would strongly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home.
Daina’s team was very helpful. DJ came to my rescue when I locked myself out of the bathroom and when I broke a hinge on my cupboard (at the last minute!). Arrived promptly and fixed the problem quickly.
-I was happy to meet you when you were selling my friends house across the street and to see how quickly you were able to sell it. I’m not good at writing reviews but I would love for others to know what a pleasure it was to work with you, and how fast mine was on the market . I couldn’t believe it when in just 5 days I got the message it was sold.
-Daina was there every step of the way. She help me fill out paper work that I was having trouble with. She was there no matter what time of day I called her. Daina will be my choice when I buy a new home. I can't say enough good things about her.
-I rarely believe, or confer a 5 rating. But this Real Estate Professional deserves one. This is the 2nd sale she has handled for me. I continue to be impressed. Every detail is followed up without me reminding her of anything. She knows the market and does her research. She is personable and Available. During the process of buying or selling a home, communication is extremely important. And she communicates well with Escrow, Buyer/Seller and their agent, as well as her client. In this last sale, I was buying a new home at the same time as selling my current home. It was a frustrating experience because my agent on the other side (purchase) did not communicate well, leaving me frustrated and just a tad angry. Daina intervened, even though she was not on the commission side of that transaction. If I were still an active Broker, I would hire Daina in a red hot moment, and I'm not easily impressed.
-Daina is easy to deal with, very professional and helpful in every way. She provided accurate information on comparable prices and guided us through the selling process. Daina has been instrumental in selling our place in 10 days and for the full price. We highly recommend Daina for all your real estate transactions.
-Daina came with high recommendations and I now know why! She made the entire process of selling my home smooth, quick and hassle free. She was very thorough in explaining and guiding me through every step and quickly resolved any issues that arose. Any questions or concerns I had were answered with complete confidence again reassuring me that I had made the right choice in Daina Burness. I will definitely be contacting her again when I decide to purchase another home and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate agent!
-Daina has provided excellent service in every respect. Even though I am based in England which provides extra complication to the sale she took care of every issue with great expertise. I was particularly impressed with her regular updates and her understanding that the customer needs to know what's going on. I would certainly recommend her in the highest terms. Thank you Daina.
-Daina is an awesome realtor. She stayed on top of all of issues and problems that we encountered during escrow and kept me in the loop at all times.
-Ms Daina Burness was an excellent professional in all aspects of selling my condo. She was proactive, knowledgeable, and supportive. I could not have asked for a better real estate agent. Thank you, Daina, you were a pleasure to work with.
-Daina is an awesome agent. She keeps on top of things and really knows her stuff. She kept me informed every step of the way and offered helpful suggestions when asked for. She got my inherited condo sold when I didn't think it would ever happen.
-Daina is an excellent Agent! She pays attention to detail and kept me informed play by play on what was going on with my property. She is very professional and one of the nicest individuals you can meet in the business. Daina went out of her way to make sure the sale of my property went smooth and she kept me informed of all the potential buyer's and their respective offers. During the most difficult time in my escrow, Daina was able to come to the rescue and offer solutions. Afterall, I was in the process of two other esrows and she was incredibly patient and professional with me. She comes highly recommended.
-I want to thank you for handling the sale of my property. I have no doubt that the expeditious and favorable completion of the sale were due entirely to the high level of professionalism and commitment that you demonstrated at all times. Your patience and understanding and the practical suggestions you made were wonderful, this meant a lot to me during this difficult period, thank you both. I will truly recommend your superior real estate services to my friends and relatives for any future transactions.

- Daina is awesome. -Daina is an AMAZING realtor!! I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thanks to her hard work and dedication we just moved into our home. She is knowledgeable, reliable, responsive and very friendly. Bottom line: Daina is no joke and only call her if you are serious about buying or selling your home.
-I would recommend Daina without hesitation to anyone who wants an agent who "helps you get stuff done" in a very pleasant and efficient manner. She was very useful in helping us find a place that met our constraints regarding location, schooling, budget, etc.. We were doing this remotely, and Daina was super about keeping us on track, and recommending appropriate counterparties and meeting with the inspectors and contractors as needed on our behalf, and even changing our name on the utility bills, etc... Also, Daina is super knowledgeable about Burbank and also was kind enough to offer her educated opinion when requested. I would recommend Daina without hesitation for anyone looking in the Burbank area.
-She was very patient as our house desires evolved over time. We finally found perfect house for us. Daina was prompt in every matter; no one ever waited for our responses, and house was closed in record time. I even had to leave the country for 4 weeks during the entire process, plus we got credit back from the seller due to discovered issues. Having good agent helped in each of these circumstances, and we are very happy with Daina. She is highly recommended.

- Our son Sam lives in CA, and we live in Michigan. Therefore, the search to find a condo within our budget, geographic area, and satisfying the needs and desires of our son who would be living in it while communicating with us across the country was a major undertaking. We had been looking for over a year and had worked with two other realtors unsuccessfully.
Daina soon got a handle on what Sam was looking for, what features were musts, and where there was some flexibility. With the number of hours Sam was working, his time was limited for going to see properties. Daina recognized this, and for weeks on end, would take the time to preview the properties, and only take Sam to those that she knew were possibilities based on his criteria. This was greatly appreciated. She was also outstanding at staying on top of things, communicating with both Sam and my husband and I.
We made another offer or two, but neither worked out. We were all feeling frustrated at the time being spent, offers that didn’t materialize, and properties that just weren’t to our liking. Through it all, Daina kept telling us that the ones we lost out on were just not “meant to be” and it meant that we hadn’t found the right one yet. Frankly, we weren’t feeling too positive about the prospect of finding a condo at all, but Daina kept at it and didn’t give up. To her credit, she never tried to talk Sam into a condo that she knew he really didn’t love, or one that he would be over-compromising on his criteria. We had the utmost trust in Daina and always felt she was in our corner, trying to find us a condo that we would be happy with, not just trying to make a sale.
Daina continued to search and in late January previewed 2 properties, both which she knew Sam would like. She was absolutely right. Sam liked the first one she showed him, but when he walked into the second one, he said “This is it!” (just as Daina thought he would).
Daina did so much beyond the call of duty, I don’t know where to begin. She knew Sam had no experience with the process, and with us not there, she took it upon herself to stand by Sam through inspection, getting bids on repairs, and the painstaking process of volumes of paperwork, escrow, etc. She always promptly answered our questions, calls, and e-mails. She was knowledgeable, and took the time to explain things to us as questions arose. She was straightforward yet kind and understanding. She helped us through every bump and turn in the road right through closing.
We consider ourselves fortunate to have had such an accommodating and knowledgeable realtor assisting us. Daina was spectacular in every way and on every front. We would recommend her highly to anyone who wants to purchase or sell their home. We truly appreciated Daina’s expertise, all her time and effort, and all she did for us.
