Make Nicole Kempinski your real estate agent!
Whether you are looking to buy or list a home, Nicole Kempinski has the right combination of talent, skill, work ethic and emotional intelligence to make the purchase or sale of your home go very well and exceed your expectations. I know this to be personally true given my working relationship with Nicole during the last few months; my wife and I bought the perfect home for us despite significant challenges the market presented, our specific needs, and…my Type A personality–admittedly I am difficult to work with at times but Nicole was simply awesome.
A little context: My wife and I asked Nicole to be our real estate agent in April after a series of failed working relationships with other real estate agents who just didn’t make the cut. We were looking to buy a home and piece of property with unique characteristics suitable for horses and farmland, and in a market price range which limited our options based on our budget (despite being cash purchasers). Nicole accepted the challenge and, after closely listening to our needs, went right to work. Part of our need was to see a few places that might work, recognizing that given our budget, we might not find everything we wanted in a home. Nicole showed us a number of places from South King County to Lewis County; we even bid on a few and then changed our minds. Nicole stayed flexible understanding how high stakes the home purchase was for my wife and I; we were using a significant portion of life savings to buy a home and property—this was high stakes for my wife and I.
Along the way, Nicole proved herself tenacious and further reaffirmed that our selection of her as our agent was the right decision. She demonstrated top-notch people skills, an ability to research, to listen and ask questions, and to negotiate with other parties. On this last point, I bargain for a living and Nicole knocked it out of the park for my wife and I on the perfect home—an old farm house my wife always dreamed of owning, on almost 20 acres, with a shop for me and my hot rod projects. I cannot begin to tell you how happy my wife and I are about the home and about selecting Nicole as our Real Estate Agent. We highly recommend her, whether you are looking to buy or sell a home or piece of real estate. She is an outstanding agent!
We highly recommend her
Toni did an outstanding job helping my wife and I search for a home near Fort Lewis. Professional, knowledgeable, and courteous, Toni went out of her way to meet our needs. We highly recommend her.
By far the best experience I have had!
By far the best experience I have had in my house hunting. Not only was Cory professional, he was always available when I had questions.. will recommend to all my friends.
If you’re looking for a real estate broker, I highly suggest Cory Burger
If we need to purchase or refinance a home, Cory Burger is our go-to guy! Cory became our agent back in 2006 and over the course of 11 years, he successfully helped me and my family get into three different homes and refinance one. He’s easy to work with, quick to respond, happy to show you a listing at the drop of a hat and is a really great man over all. I enjoyed my experiences with him so much that I, myself have decided to go into real estate. And even though I’ll be his competitor, he’s been kind enough to mentor me.
Another great thing Cory brings to the table is his network of people. From mortgage brokers who can help you finance your new home to inspection agencies who can help you make an informed choice on purchasing your new home to property managers who can help you rent your previous home, he’s got it all! Having a resource like that makes the process of home purchasing/selling quick, efficient and pleasant.
If you’re looking for a real estate broker, I highly suggest Cory Burger…at least until I become one!
Outstanding first-class service
In the world of real estate transactions, trust and reliable consistent service are the pillars of a good business relationship. I have either purchased or sold 6 properties during the last 10 years in Olympia, and have repeatedly returned to Doug and his office, because of the outstanding, first-class service and trustworthiness which characterize every transaction. I recommend every member of his stellar team unconditionally!
Very professional and understanding!
We found our dream home and Nicole was there to help us through it all. She answered all our questions, and even when she didn’t know the answer, she would find it. Very professional and understanding!
Very professional and helpful
I had no idea everything that was involved in selling a house. Burger Professionals walked me through each step of the way. They are very professional and helpful. I have enjoyed the experience of working with this agency. Thank you for all your help and the quick sale of my home.
I wish every broker I work with was this good and pleasant to work with!
I’m so pleased to tell you what an amazing experience I had working this transaction with Cory. It was an extremely challenging deal for both of us. From our first conversation, we set the tone that we would work together towards a common goal of closing this home. This transaction was challenging literally until the day of recording, and even after! If I didn’t have Cory’s contagious positive attitude, I’m not sure it would have happened.
He was a pleasure to work with, and as each obstacle came up, he maintained his positive demeanor and continued to work hard. He was diligent and obviously working very hard for his client. I would absolutely refer any of my clients in your area to Cory. I have every confidence they would be in the best of hands. I could go on, but essentially, I wish every broker I work with was this good and pleasant to work with. If my wife and I weren’t brokers ourselves, I would fight to have him help us sell or buy a home!
Cory is the best by far …
Cory is the best by far Realtor we have came across. He helped us through this process go very so smoothly. He’s a great positive energy and personality vibes was awesome. He helped us during our process of 5 months while our home was being built and it’s beautiful. He was available all hours of the day even weekends and answered any questions we had asap. I also liked how quick forms were signed through emails electronically and fit perfectly in our busy schedule. I couldn’t have chosen any other Agent. I appreciate also how much his team has put in and got us the best rate locked in and they do their best to fit your needs. I recommend highly, we are so grateful to have had him as our agent.
An excellent job in marketing
Burger Professionals has done an excellent job in marketing and selling our house. As an out-of-State owner, we had to do everything by phone, fax, email, or Fed-Ex. They had to coordinate with my property manager as well as a non-compliant rental tenant. Though this house was average, and was in rental history for six years, I am convinced that I got a fair market value for my home, and that it was done professionally and quickly. The whole team assisted with the processing, overcoming some difficulties concerning showing the house, complying with local laws for septic, moisture intrusion, etc., and coordinating final repairs. Their explanations of the process, all over the phone or by e-mail, were excellent. Their photo of the home for ads was superb!
Her expertise, knowledge and wisdom are unsurpassable
I would like to take a moment to write you regarding our experience with Toni. Toni came into our lives over a year ago when my husband was in the initial stages of looking for a home. It was merely a dream at that point in which we had not really planned to fulfill in the near future, much less actually achieve it.
Somehow, my husband found Toni. He looked through her listings she was sending us, for a year, occasionally taking a moment to show me a home he thought was maybe in our realm of possibilities. I would look and say, “OK, that’s nice”, and go on my way, not giving it a second thought because you see, I didn’t believe it was possible. I felt that my husband was doing what he always did, dream.
We eventually came to a fork in the road where my husband convinced me that maybe we could do this. He got a little more serious about looking, and even started emailing Toni. During the year that we were kind of sort of looking, Toni was amazing with my husband. She was patient with us, and never once pushed us to do anything we didn’t want to do. Toni answered all of my husband’s questions without ever getting impatient or even treating us like we were obnoxious children, (and I promise you, we were!). She held our hands and walked with us on this new adventure and took care of us every step of the way. Toni has great people skills! She never pushed us to do anything. She advised and gave us opinions and real life situations that she’s come up against. Her expertise, knowledge and wisdom are unsurpassable. She knew what we could and couldn’t afford, and when all was said and done, we had a new home built from the ground up.
Toni not only is our real estate broker, but we consider her to be a friend, for through this process, we became friends and in my opinion, friends don’t steer you wrong. She’s honest to a fault whether she’s telling you good things or even things we didn’t want to hear, but when all was said and done, Toni does right by you.
Toni, thank you for who you are and all you do. Kevin and I do not hesitate to give your card to anyone we know is looking to buy or sell.
Cory is everything you want in a real estate professional
We worked with Cory Burger to buy our new home, and we can not recommend him highly enough. We started the process in February, and looked at several homes in rural Thurston County before deciding to build new. We didn’t close until July.
Cory was with us every step of the way. He was engaged, knowledgeable, and always available when we needed him. Cory is everything you want in a real estate professional!
Burger Professionals is very knowledgeable about the real estate market, and did an exceptional job of marketing the property. They are always kind, and very courteous when you need to contact them with a question, or just to ask about progress, which you rarely need to ask because they keep you very well informed. A great team to work with!
We really can’t say enough good things about Nicole
We had a long drawn out process searching for our new home in WA. Nicole, at Burger Professionals, made the journey fun and interesting. She was always available and most helpful.
Our job situation changed the area which were looking for a home twice and Nicole took this in stride and continued to work for us. We ended up purchasing a HUD home. This was another arduous process but again Nicole was right alongside of us the entire way.
We really can’t say enough good things about Nicole. She was an awesome Real Estate Agent and we would wholeheartedly recommend her!
An experienced, dedicated and knowledgeable real estate professional
We recently moved into our new home, and are totally delighted in the process and outcome of a very potentially stressful ordeal.
We were very lucky to have Cory Burger from Burger Professionals, handle our real estate transactions for us. He was very educated in the process, but also went above and beyond expectations by being very available for home viewings, writing up offers, explaining the process and advising on how to proceed. It was a very long relationship because of the fact that we had to sell the home we were currently living in.
Cory would literally drop everything to immediately show us a home we wanted to see, and there were very many homes as we were determined to find exactly what we wanted.
He was always available immediately by phone, and the few occasions he wasn’t, he would return our call within a few hours.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for anyone looking for an experienced, dedicated and knowledgeable real estate professional.
A high level of professionalism
We would like to express our appreciation for the high level of professionalism you demonstrated in marketing our home in Lacey, recently. We had not anticipated the property would sell as quickly as it did.
Your diligence in marketing online resulted in a quick sale which allowed us to move forward with the home we were purchasing out of State. We greatly appreciate the courtesy you showed to prospective buyers and to us.
It is refreshing to work with a broker that will go the extra mile to complete the sale when so many agents are content to list a property and wait for someone else to sell it.
Nicole was on top of everything
We were put in touch with Nicole Kempinski by our son and daughter-in-law. Nicole was their agent when they purchased a home in Gig Harbor this past spring. They absolutely raved about their experience with Nicole, and recommended her to my husband and I when we decided to relocate to the PNW as well.
From the very beginning, we found Nicole to be attentive to our needs, was on top of the market where we were interested in moving, was readily available at all times and is a very nice person. When we scheduled our first visit to the area, Nicole had lined up all the homes we wanted to see (and there were many) and then spent two whole days getting us to and through them.
In total, Nicole wrote three offers for us and two were on the same home and that was the home that we really wanted. It was a very difficult negotiation, one that went on for a number of months, but through it all, Nicole was on top of everything including the other agent. She kept us continuously informed, and eventually we closed. We would highly and gladly recommend Nicole to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks Nicole….
They are far and away the best
This was our 2nd home selling and buying experience with Burger Professionals. Both have been exceptional. Doug and his team are indeed professionals in every way. They are by far and away the best. Their advice and coaching throughout the process made it quick, effective and painless.
She is knowledgeable, responsive, professional
Nicole helped us find our Gig Harbor house this Spring, and we love it. She is knowledgeable, responsive, professional, and a really nice person! Now she is helping our parents move up too! I highly recommend this agency.
She is an outstanding agent!
Whether you are looking to buy or list a home, Nicole Kempinski has the right combination of talent, skill, work ethic and emotional intelligence to make the purchase or sale of your home go very well, and exceed your expectations.

My personal experience was above and beyond what I ever would have expected
Burger Professionals was referred to me as someone who had done a fantastic job not only with buying a home but also with selling a home. According to my referral, after staging the home he was selling according to the suggestions, he didn’t want to leave it!
My personal experience was above and beyond what I ever would have expected. I had the pleasure of working directly with Doug, the owner and operator. My options in purchasing a home were limited at best. Doug was ever patient with my plethora of questions and concerns. Every e-mail, text, and phone call was well received and promptly replied to with thorough, detailed answers and explanations.
Doug is one of the most genuine people I have met. His staff was warm and friendly. Their enthusiasm during the closing of my home was contagious. If I ever find myself in need of a real estate agent again, Burger Professionals will be my first call.
Your ethics and follow through when questions came up after the sale was nothing short of fabulous!
This is a belated thank you for helping us find exactly the house we were looking for in Olympia. I was a little stressed at the thought of relocating from one State to another and after e-mailing back and forth with you and giving you our “wish list”, you were able to immediately zero in on the perfect location for us, and only took us to properties that were completely our taste, style and price range.
When I went off the “deep end” and fell in love with a location, but thought I could magically renovate those things that I didn’t like, you very gently pointed out that what I was suggesting could be much more expensive than I was realizing and gently redirected me.
Your astute negotiation skill once we found the house we wanted to purchase was impressive. We absolutely love our new home and our location. Your ethics and follow through when questions came up after the sale was nothing short of fabulous.
I have only had 2 other experiences selling and purchasing homes, but both were filled with anxiety and disappointment both during and after the transactions were completed. You have restored my faith and we will always be grateful.
Her marketing strategies were top notch
On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to thank you for all that you did to sell our house. As you know, we were somewhat “under the gun” to move and sell our home in Olympia, but we were not willing to sacrifice the profit from the sale of our home.
Your willingness to negotiate, expertise, and marketing strategies were top notch. Not only did you assist my family in the pursuit of our dreams, but also the buyer’s family.
Thank you again!
I couldn’t have asked for a better real estate broker
As first time home buyers, the process was a bit overwhelming, so we appreciate everything Punalei has done for us. From start to finish it’s been a wild adventure and she was thorough and helpful throughout the whole process. I couldn’t have asked for a better real estate broker! I will recommend her to any and all family and friends. I am positive they will feel just as blessed as we did to have her on our side.
They don’t get any better than Toni Greenwood
After interviewing several Realtors in the South Sound area, I recently selected Toni Greenwood as the agent best suited to sell my home. I’ve never regretted that decision. Her professionalism, marketing expertise and negotiation skills are just a few of the things that make Toni an exceptional Broker.
One of the most important things I did was to follow her advice regarding the ‘staging’ of my house. I made the few simple changes she suggested, and was amazed at the difference it made in how my home ‘showed’ to prospective buyers. My house sold after only two weeks on the market.
To say that I am pleased with the work she has done would be an understatement. There are many Brokers out there, but in my book, they don’t get any better than Toni Greenwood.
They absolutely over delivered in every way!
The team at Burger Professionals are absolutely incredible. Our agent, Cory Burger, worked with us every step of the way to ensure we prepared our home in the best possible way to ensure we would receive the best possible offer after listing. Everything from the optimum price, the staging, photos and every other question we had was not only answered, but explained in detail as to “why”.
These folks definitely know what they are doing and we felt taken care of throughout the entire process. And on top of all that, we had an above full price offer on our home 15 minutes after listing! But the team didn’t stop there, they continued to work with buyers and we received four more offers just in the first few hours on the market. Ultimately, we signed an incredible offer that was well beyond what we could have hoped for only four hours after listing the home!!
We can not recommend the team at Burger Professional highly enough. They absolutely over delivered in every way, and we are thrilled with the experience and outcome.
They are indeed the best office in town!
Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home, you will get the best customer service with Burger Professionals. Doug Burger strives to provide top-of-the-line training for all the brokers, and as a result, the customer service is excellent. I listed my house with Burger Professionals, and due to the beautiful photos posted on the multiple listing, and the attention to detail, my house sold in one day and I made an offer on a condo out of town. They juggled the details so effortlessly, that it all came together in a seamless manner. I would recommend their office to all my friends. They are indeed the best office in town.
They know their stuff!
Working with Burger Professionals is a real treat! They are not only great real estate brokers, but are compassionate problem solvers. They indoctrinated us before we ever went out to look at homes. During this meeting they interviewed us and determined what we were qualified for as well as where to look. The first neighborhood we went to was hitting the nail on the head! We ultimately wrote an offer which was negotiated with ease and I cant tell you how well we were treated by the entire Burger Professionals staff! What a great experience this has been.
We have been so impressed with this company
While we were still deciding if we even wanted to move to the area, Cory was so helpful, patient and available to answer all of our questions. He didn’t even know if we would ever be clients yet he took the time to answer every question.
When we decided to buy, we worked with both Cory and Nicole. Nicole tirelessly took us out to any place we wanted to see and answered every question. After she helped with every aspect of our purchase, we had her sell our other house because we knew we could count on her!
Toni knows the market and how to quickly overcome the obstacles
I am happy to provide a testimonial for the service you afforded my family during our waterfront search and purchase. For others looking for a relentlessly focused real estate partner, I recommend Toni Greenwood.
Having searched over a year myself for waterfront property, Toni found the perfect property for our family in less than a month. Toni’s real value was the advice and strategy she provided to have our offer selected over two other equally competitive bids. Toni knows the market and how to quickly overcome the obstacles.
The strongest endorsement for Toni is that I refer my friends to her. By the way, we love our waterfront home and Toni made it happen!
Nicole always conducted herself with honesty, dignity, and integrity
We just bought a house in Olympia, Washington with the help of Nicole Kempinski, an agent from Burger Professionals Real Estate Agency. We were searching for a suitable house in a very good school zone as we have two (2) small kids. Nicole was very diligent in responding to our needs. It wasn’t easy to find a large house in a good school zone and close to Madigan Army Hospital where my wife works. We tried buying a house in Tumwater first, but it didn’t happen because the inspection showed serious problems with this house. Then, we tried buying a house from a builder in Lacey and that didn’t go well either as the builder was using deceptive practices, and at the end we decided to walk away from that deal.
Nicole never gave up on helping us to find the right house. She was always accurate, diligent, and quick in responding to our needs. We never felt that she was in it for the money only. She was always genuinely interested in finding the right house for us, and she enjoys her line of work. She constantly and around the clock was in communication with us even on weekends and late at night. We had a great and pleasant experience with her and we will definitely use her services and talents to sell this house that we just bought in about four (4) years from now as my wife will be transferred to a new Army Base somewhere in U.S. Even after “Closing,” Nicole continued helping us get settled in the new house as we were moving from Texas. Nicole always conducted herself with honesty, dignity, and integrity. My wife and I give Nicole and Burger Professionals “Two (2) Thumbs Up!”
Very professional, personable and diligent
I have had several real estate transactions with Punalei, and have found her to be very professional, personable and diligent when getting the job done. I appreciate that in someone – good solid customer service. Burger Professionals seems to have that going for them – solid professionals.
A competent professional broker!
Thank you for a job well done! You found the right house for your client; facilitated the purchase agreement; and shepherded all the processes needed (including several glitches and changes) to make a prompt closing of the purchase.
We would gladly recommend you to anyone looking for a competent professional broker!
