specializes in the best our area has to offer – luxury golf and waterfront homes. He uses his extensive knowledge of the outstanding golf courses and communities in our area to forge key relationships and connect sellers with the right buyers. A deep listener and strong negotiator, he devotes his full attention and resources to each client through and after the sale.
Chris graduated in Florida before returning to his home state of Massachusetts. He worked as a sales manager with Verizon for two decades, overseeing 24 stores and managing 100+ employees. His experience in client relations, project management, negotiation, and financial analysis has given him the tools he needs to succeed in today’s fast-paced real estate environment. “I’ve learned to move quickly between these roles,” says Chris. “I’m comfortable handling complex, multi-tasking situations.”
GOLF AND REAL ESTATE
As a scratch golfer, Chris is a familiar and welcome face at the most prestigious courses in the Palm Beaches. While in Massachusetts, he worked his way up the ranks of the Massachusetts Golf Association where he competed on the tournament circuit and participated in many state amateur championships. In Palm Beach he has earned the respect of golfers and staffers on dozens of our area’s courses and is the current club champion of Frenchman’s Creek. Chris knows the members, the courses, the caddies, and the “personality” of each club like the back of his hand. He works to find the perfect match for his clients’ lifestyle, golf style, and home style.
HARD WORK + BEST TOOLS = SUCCESS
Chris’ strong work ethic is matched with the most thorough marketing program any Realtor can offer. Echo Fine Properties’ dominant Google presence, in-house IT, in-house photography, in-house social media, buyer concierge, full-time administration, exclusive database of 85,000 subscribers, Palm Beach Post presence, gorgeous marketing materials, and networking in other communities, coupled with Chris’s unmatched selling skills, assures the best deal for his clients.
INTEGRITY ON AND OFF THE COURSE
Chris is meticulous about taking care of every detail long before any problems arise. He is always available for his clients, makes the most of their time, and has their best interests at heart. “On the golf course, a handshake means as much as a contract”, says Chris. “Word of mouth is how I’ve developed my relationships in business and in life for more than 30 years. I believe trust is everything. It’s the key to being liked and respected. When I give a friend or client my word, they know I mean it.”
CHRIS BURKE SETS RECORD PRICE FOR THE NORTHERN PALM BEACHES
By the builders of the famed owners of the Fontainebleau comes SeaGlass. SeaGlass is the first condominium to be built in Jupiter Island in nearly 20 years. Tucked away with 360-degree views of the most desirable vistas such as the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal, and nature reserves.
The Jupiter Island Condos are located on a stretch of beach just 3.6 miles long, set away just like its own private island. SeaGlass is the utmost in contemporary luxury design from the sleek exterior to the 2-story entry. And the Penthouse with 5323 living square feet is the best of the best. Open concept and all Impact glass floor to ceiling. Imported select marble flooring. All top of the line Miele appliances including a wine column in the kitchen, along with Italian stone countertops. Giant master with double wardrobe closets and frameless steam shower. Direct private access terrace. And only the Penthouse has its own private rooftop terrace to look out over 170 linear feet of Atlantic Ocean frontage.
The building itself pampers its guests with a 24/7 attended doorman through its gated entry. Private poolside cabanas are available by the oceanfront infinity-edge heated swimming pool, sun shelf, and heated relaxation spa. Residents enjoy a yoga & meditation lawn, and a fitness center with state-of-the-art weight training and cardio equipment. Mingle by the Club Room with catering kitchen, lounge seating, and game area or by the Outdoor Social Terrace and BBQ sand fire pit and day dock by the River’s edge. And for your furry friends you’ll find a private dog walk area and bathing station.
The Ocean at this stretch is the most beautiful on the entire East coast. After a sand belt the water goes down 20 feet, and you’ll see sea turtles and every tropical fish with a rainbow of colors amongst the limestone coral formations. Enjoy the most amazing sunrises on the Atlantic Ocean side and unforgettable sunsets daily on the Intracoastal.
A full-time staff is on hand to facilitate your arrival and lifestyle needs. This is a place to slow down and enjoy life with your family and friends. Further along are the estates of Jupiter Island. Jupiter Island is known for having the highest per capita income in the United States. It is an understated Island with elite travelers and celebrities. Totally secluded, but within a short drive over the Jupiter Island bridge is some of the best shopping, eateries, golf courses, and boating (marinas with large yachts close by) around. Palm Beach International Airport is just half an hour away as are several small private airports.
Now how did Chris find SeaGlass for his clients? I interviewed Chris to find out.
Almost 2 1/2 years ago, some new clients wanted oceanfront property directly on the sand. North Palm Beach County was their #1 choice. They had explored the West coast of Florida as well, and after some time, made the decision the East coast was their preference.
We started out touring Singer Island and a couple of buildings on Jupiter Island. They really liked the beauty and privacy of Jupiter Island. However, we just could not find the right product. A year later, they came down again and were prepared to give Singer Island a closer look, although I knew from their body language and sense of excitement that JI was really their first choice from our previous visit the year prior.
I am an avid bike rider and my travels generally take me along the coast of Jupiter Island because of the beauty and privacy of the island. One particular day while riding, I noticed a sign that I had never seen before, on a fence that said, “Coming Soon” SeaGlass…Luxury Condominiums. I was very intrigued and immediately thought of my clients.
Two months later while they were in town visiting Singer Island and potentially making an offer on a new construction project, I had told them what I found on Jupiter Island and asked if they may want to see where and what it was that I had uncovered. In the meantime, I had had several conversations with the builder/GC of the building at Sea Glass and told them I may have someone who will want to hear more on that project, understanding of course it was still 2-3 years away from completion. That was at 12:30 on a Thursday back in March of 2018. I picked my clients up an hour later and we met “Phil” at the location and spent two hours with him going over the very infant plans of the 21-unit building.
Well after 4 more trips down over those 2 years, and a half dozen meetings with “Phil” and the actual developer from Miami, we signed a contract back in January of this year for the Penthouse unit.
Needless to say, my clients think I am a “GOD” for finding them this very special property. They are over the moon excited and have sent me another client that is showing major interest in the same development as well.
Simply by knowing my area and what products are at my disposal, I can educate and assist all my clients whether it be a 150,000 single family home or a 10M oceanfront property. I do not discount service to discounted homes. I receive as much joy helping every client whatever the price range. I am passionate at what I do, and my clients recognize that. After all, 99% of my business comes from incredibly happy satisfied clients over the years of a very successful Real Estate career.

“Hi Jeff, I just wanted to share with you how great of a job Chris Burke did helping me find my home in The Preserve at Bay Hill Estates. Chris spent a lot of time figuring out all of my wants and needs. Knowing the area as well as he does, he had three to five homes that he thought I would be very interested in. But he made sure that I looked at many more to make sure that we didn’t leave any stone unturned. And when it came time to start negotiating with sellers, it was all about my needs. Chris just knows the market so well. No matter how much I liked something, he would not let me overpay and made sure that I got the best deal possible. Chris also helped make the financing a breeze and he also made sure that he was there for every inspection that was needed so he could answer any question that could possibly come up. He even went as far as meeting the movers at the house when our furniture was delivered. I am now in a home that I never dreamed was possible thanks to Chris. When the time comes for me to sell my home and purchase another one, I would never consider using anyone but Chris! ”

“My husband and I just purchased a home at Frenchman’s Creek. We could not have been happier with our broker. Chris Burke was amazing and great at what he does! He was absolutely delightful to work with, extremely knowledgeable, sincere, patient and honest. Most importantly he listened to us and our needs and took us to appropriate properties not wasting anyone’s time. Since Chris lives at Frenchman’s Creek and is an avid golfer he knew the community inside and out. With his friendly and outgoing personality, he introduced us to everyone that crossed our path. Even when I called to ask him about the “men’s gin game” he was able to answer all my questions! We were nothing than pleased with his expertise and we credit him with a smooth and stress-free buying experience. Thank you Chris! ”

“Chris Burke from Echo Fine Properties found us a home on the championship golf course at PGA and sold our home at PGA all in one month. He was always in tune with our wants and must haves. He negotiated a great deal for us and with the help of his team got us top dollar for our home. He answers calls and texts immediately and even while on vacation stayed in touch with us as we had a lot of questions about selling and buying a home. We couldn’t have had a more engaged realtor on our side than Chris Burke and I can’t sing his praises too loudly. If you are buying or selling a home in the Palm Beach Gardens area you can do no better than Chris and Echo Fine Properties. ”

We will be referring all our friends looking for property in this area to you!! ”

“Chris: You are right on!! One of the last things I noticed is that this home was not constructed as CBS. It was frame and concrete. Using your advice to stay away from any home that is not CBS we decided that this one would not work. The basic design of the home was not bad. But frame construction will not work. Very pleased that you are representing us and not looking just to make quick sale. Your approach will grow your business and make lasting friendship with your clients. Good work! ”
