What Our Clients Say

“J.W. Burke and Co. is a best in class boutique brokerage firm led by Jonathan Burke. I have known Jonathan for decades and have found him to be a person of both high integrity and talent. He is quick at understanding his clients goals and delivering excellent results.

J.W. Burke & Co. has represented us on acquisitions and sales. They always do their best  to bring excellent execution. On the leasing side, they have represented us as landlord and have also represented tenants on projects we were involved.  In all instances he brings intelligence and integrity to everything he does.”

Kenneth Bernstein, President & CEO
Acadia Realty Trust

“I have been the CFO of Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts for 26 Years. One of my main responsibilities has always been site selection and the negotiation of business terms for all Tiger franchises.  About 1 year after starting I did my 1st deal with Jonathan Burke and for the next 25 years J.W. Burke & Co. has been our exclusive broker.  While we were pioneering and sculpting the boutique fitness platform over the past 25 years, J.W. Burke & Co. was guiding the ship…all facets of transactions from site identification deal negotiation renewals, relocations.  We have become a team where he knows exactly what are needs are and delivers without much assistance from our side.  He is the best closer in the business and I have some tough asks and he always manages to get it done.  We have forged a business relationship based on honesty and  trust.  We are very happy to have him on our Team.”

“I had the pleasure of doing 2 deals with Jonathan in 2017. Both deals were extremely complicated because they both involved a great deal of construction and challenging delivery conditions. His unique trait is that he simultaneously brought sensibility to the tenants when it came to their asks, and fought relentlessly for the things they cared most about. Without this balance, we would not have closed the deals. He was creative, worked honestly and tirelessly, and I look forward to doing more business with JW Burke & Co.”

“Jonathan and Lena are superheroes. Seriously, if you don’t believe us, you can check out their capes in person. We were in need of a strategic location in the Flatiron/Chelsea area and they hit it out of the park for us. To clarify, not a home run, but a grand slam. They not only helped us find an off-market gem (ground level, four retail windows, a location to die for) that was 30% below our budget but helped to negotiate the lease—to our benefit—and further shape the vision of our concept through the use of space. The way they envision “space and layout” was genius. They are truly masters of their craft. They more than took care of us, and what should have been a stressful process was actually quite enjoyable. So if you’re looking for a similar experience, then look no further.”
