NEWS RELEASE   July 2013                                                                     Team Ireland & Burke is Twice as Nice              

What started out as mutual respect, turned into mutual approval as two top real estate agents both equally well known to the residents of El Dorado Park Estates, decided to pool their considerable talents and resources to join together as the team  of ‘Heather Burke and Sarah Ireland’.

For many years the duo has, independently of each other, brought families home to El Dorado Park Estates. Now they will work in tandem to serve the families and individuals who call, or who want to call this wonderful neighborhood home.

You could say real estate is in Sarah Ireland’s blood, she is after all a third generation real estate professional.  Yes, Sarah is firmly rooted in the real estate industry and she happily acknowledges that ‘real estate is all I’ve ever wanted to do’.  Because it is a true passion, she puts her heart and soul into it and that is reflected in the high level of service, professionalism and caring she provides to her clients.  Sarah is also blessed with a strong sense of style and her listings are beautifully staged to maximize visual appeal and garner top selling price.  As a resident of El Dorado Park Estates and mom to two wonderful daughters she knows why families fall in love with the neighborhood. Sarah believes in giving back to the community, and that is why she volunteers to serve the homeowners association - she’ll be Vice President of Membership this year and why she is active with the Newcomb Foundation raising money for the school’s restoration project. When you meet Sarah you’ll know why clients love working with her and why no one sells El Dorado like she does (except perhaps Heather Burke).

They say if you want to get something done, ask a busy person to do it… they obviously were thinking of Heather the quintessential ‘can-do’ lady.  Heather began her real estate career working for a mortgage broker so she could learn the business from the ground up. After satisfying her ‘need to know’ on the lending side, she moved to specializing in residential real estate.  Today she has an impressive amount of professional designations after her name and a reputation for being tenacious in getting the best deal for her clients. An advocate for utilizing technology to best serve her business and her clients, she also believes strongly in giving old fashioned ‘high-touch’ personalized customer service.  Heather and her husband are long-time residents of El Dorado Park Estates and they know the neighborhood and its environs intimately…if you don’t believe me ask their dog Maggie who knows ‘pawsitively’ all there is to know about the area from her neighborhood walks.

Both agents are delighted to team up and represent the neighborhood they both call home.  Says Heather “You know what they say…two heads are better than one” and Sarah says “Now we can be in two places at once!”  No matter how you say it, the team of Heather Burke and Sarah Ireland is simply ‘twice as nice’ for the residents of El Dorado Park Estates.
