My Real Estate Philosophy:
To provide the best in personal and professional real estate services, led by the highest in ethics, integrity and knowledge. This is not done because of clients' expectations, but because of my commitment to their service.
I will never tell a client what they want to hear if it is not reality. I will never enter into a client relationship when I know what is expected of me cannot be done in good faith. I acknowledge that I may periodically lose business because I am truthful with my clients and sometimes my competitors will tell them what they want to hear to temporarily to get their business. In the long run, I know that my honesty will prevail.
I will never lose sight of the fact that my honesty, loyalty, understanding, work ethic and creativity are what make me so very different from the real estate masses. I will always promote the best interest of my clients, and I will always disclose to my clients all facts that might affect or influence their decision. Many times, a client may disagree with my opinion, but they will never be left wondering about any hidden agenda. Anything I have to say about a property is out in the open at all times. In the end, all decisions are the Clients to make, not mine, and I will always respect their decision.
My Approach to Real Estate:
As a homeowner and having served for almost a decade as the president of the board of directors of a homeowner’s association, I have a unique insight as to what preserves and increases property values. I offer this insight to my clients as another point of view to consider.
Market knowledge and education is paramount in the agent you are working with. PorchLight provides market knowledge that is unsurpassed. This knowledge aids my clients in making the most informed real estate decision, making them feel more at ease and confident.
A minimum number of hours of continuing education are required by the Colorado Real Estate Commission for all licensed agents. I strive to at least triple the number of hours required so that I can best serve my clients with up-to-date knowledge and education.

"Working with our realtor, Craig Burns is always an exceptional experience. We've gone through multiple transactions with his guidance over the last eight years, and he always delivers above and beyond our pickiest of expectations! Craig "turned every stone" in the recent purchase of our new home, and he saved us many potential headaches down the line. His professional, yet relaxed, approach enable the home buying/selling process to actually be enjoyable and exciting! I highly recommend Craig Burns!"
"Craig Burns was amazing to work with and very knowledgeable. We were in a tough financing situation for this market. Having an FHA approval and CHFA grant for a down payment. Not a lot of extra money to put into the pot. Craig was very honest with us that with this market and the number of multiple offer situations that we may have to be patient with our search. I'm very pleased to say that we found an amazing home in a great neighborhood in just a couple of weeks. As first time homebuyers this could've been a scary process. But he answered all our questions and walked us through the process step by step. I would highly recommend him for anyone that wants a great experience buying or selling a home."
"Craig is an exceptional realtor. He does what other agents don’t do; by going above and beyond throughout the entire process. Craig is innovative in his approach as a real estate agent that exceeds expectations. The sale of our house went about as smooth as we could have imagined. I highly recommend Craig Burns for your next real estate agent!!"
"We would like to thank Craig for going above & beyond the ordinary customer service when he sold our condo. He is truly the best realtor I have met, very knowledgable & knows how to analyze the market & showcase your property to get it sold quickly. He was able to sell our place in one weekend and for far more than our asking price. Much of the time we were out of state or the country, & he took care of all of the details. We also had experience with Craig finding this condo for us 8 years ago, another example of his expertise whether on the buying or selling end of the deal. We highly recommend Craig Burns, he makes buying or selling your home a positive experience!"

"While I may not know Craig very well since I was looking at houses in Colorado from my home in Syracuse, New York rather than being with him in Colorado, I am all too happy to give a glowing report of Craig Burns, not just as a realtor but also as a person. Craig worked with my daughter and son-in-law when they bought their house in Erie, Colorado in 2017 so that is how we initially connected with him -- they liked him so much and he agreed to work with us even though we were north of his usual territory.
I don't know if PorchLight trains their realtors on all the "nice little details" or if it's just Craig's nature or, perhaps, a bit of both but I don't think I could have found a more thoughtful, attentive, "go the extra mile" realtor anywhere. His friendly, easy going personality made him a pleasure to work with and be around. From the short time I was actually with him when I visited over the Christmas holidays I felt I was in good hands with his advice and guidance in this unusual search. He was always prompt in answering any questions and connected before he left for the weekends to be sure I didn't need anything.
I am truly grateful for his help, generosity of time, and thoughtfulness during a time that is stressful for most people, let alone someone who hasn't moved in 35 years and living across the country. People should be clamoring to have him for their realtor. We were among the lucky ones!!!"
"I worked with Craig Burns (as I have in the past) and his marketing strategy was right on target! We sold the house in 4 days, after over 200 showings and nearly 100 offers (95), for more than we anticipated. Craig and PorchLight did a terrific job and we will use them again!"
