Katie Burkard PREC*
Partner / Real Estate Advisor
Katie is a spirited entrepreneur. In 2003, she dove head-first into the real estate industry. Given her insatiable drive for success, it was no surprise her career took off like lightning. Katie uses her innovative mind to solve the puzzles of real estate sales and her tenacious attitude pushed her, in 2003, to co-found one of Vancouver's largest specialty loft companies, VanCity Lofts. Just three years later, as the 'B' in Blu, Katie co-launched Blu Realty, a modern, boutique brokerage.
Clients easily get a sense of Katie's passion for finding the best. In fact, she thrives on the chase through Vancouver's unique and vibrant neighbourhoods to capture that distinctive connection between home and home owner. She takes pride in her talent for listening and when you add her unwavering dedication it's easy to see how she builds lasting friendships with her clients.
When it comes to negotiation Katie has a natural touch ensuring the best possible deal for her clients. Now a seasoned real estate agent, she relies on her expertise and instinct to place herself in the Medallion Club-Vancouver's top 5% of Realtors® year after year. Katie loves the time she spends consulting with the city's most influential boutique developers in helping launch and sell products that meet market demands.
Katie's work ethic is evidenced by her drive to wake at the crack of dawn to train for her next sporting event--a triathlon. While her interests are worldly--like sharing a glass of French Bordeaux--she is committed to supporting local businesses and young entrepreneurs that share her passion for business. Katie happily fills any reprieve from work with a leisurely bike ride around the seawall.
