Market Knowledge, Experience, and Service
Steve and his team are the best in Burlington in my opinion. I have purchased and sold a number of investment properties in Burlington in the last 5 years and Steve has represented me for all of them. The most recent sale had numerous last-minute issues pop up and Steve and Luke took care of them so that I didn't have to worry. Steve and his team know the market better than anyone, they're very sharp, they're friendly, and they really do go the extra mile to make buying or selling a property as smooth as possible for their clients. Highly recommended.
Many of our friends were telling us that we should try to sell our house on our own and save the cost of commission that a realtor would take. We toyed with the idea but in the end decided to let professionals do what they do best. I would not call what Steve did "taking" a commission. He and his team of Luke and Keeley EARNED every bit of that commission. Steve sold our house in 3 months. Actually, he got a contract on it in a month and a half and then proceeded to take care of permits, inspections, re-inspections, plumbing, electrical, window installation, all so that we could close by the end of the year. Anyone who knows the strange, complex laws of Burlington knows what this means. If I had taken this on myself, it never would have happened. Steve and his team know what they're doing, can predict the future and made this a really seamless, easy transaction for us. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone looking to sell a duplex in Burlington.

Steve and his team excellent in every respect throughout our home buying process. I was only able to view properties at specific times due to a relocation and the team accommodated every request. I would highly recommend Steve.
Steve and his crew have set up 6 or 7 sales and purchases for me over the last several years. His knowledge, expertise , hard work, and attention to EVERY detail have made these transactions trouble free! and profitable. He doesn't miss a thing. I hardly had to lift a finger in these transactions. I recommend him to everyone.
- John, South Burlington
Steve has helped me with multiple, complicated, real estate transactions over the years. He is very easy to work with, straightforward, full of knowledge and an overall great guy. I will always use his services, well worth the money.
I have purchased two houses with Lipkin Investment Properties, their expertise in the local market was indispensable. They helped me negotiate a fair price and have continued to go above and beyond helping me determine fair market rents. I can't give them enough credit, I plan on using them exclusively in the future.
I was extremely impressed with Steve's expertise with not only the normal aspects of selling a home, he also helped me greatly to address a number of issues which without his assistance probably would've ended the sale. Steve worked with zoning, codes enforcement, and the fire safety to correct a number of issues in order for the buyers to remain interested in the property. In addition, he was able to line up people to remove a large amount of unwanted items from the garage, and another contractor to fix some things. I feel he really went above and beyond to help with items, and it also speaks to his resourcefulness in having the capabilities to handle complex and difficult properties. He was very responsive, and always called me right back if unavailable at the time I would call. Lastly, and most importantly, I truly feel he was able to negotiate the best possible selling price for my property. He really fought hard to secure aprice that I think was fair and realistic. I would recommend Steve without hesitation. He is a consummate professional, and handled my sale masterfully.

Meeting Needs Even from a Distance
“Aloha Steve, I do really appreciate your efforts in getting my multi-unit sold. Having recently moved out of state, I needed someone willing to do the running to get my property sold. From the beginning you were aggressive in marketing and getting potential buyers in to look and immediately generated offers. Once under contract the real work began to get buildings into compliance and satisfactory to the buyer. You remained calm and confident under setback and delay, meeting people after hours, even on Thanksgiving weekend. This being one of my most difficult sales, it was nice knowing I could rely on you to go above and beyond to get things done. I look forward to working with you again. Mahalo"
- Shawn Bedard, Hawaii
“It was with great pleasure that I contribute to your letters of testimonials for a job well done in selling my home in Bolton Valley. This was a challenging opportunity considering both the weather and political environment at Bolton but your persistence succeeded in allowing me to sell my home at full value, even though I was 1,000 miles away. Your efforts convinced me to recommend your services to my sister-in-law who informed me you were able to sell her home in just one day. Great job on both opportunities. If anyone is considering a Realtor to represent their property, they would do no wrong by engaging your services, and quite honestly have to be crazy to go with anyone else. Best of luck and thank you once again."

I look forward to working with Luke again."
"Thanks again Steve for all of your help in selling our house. From our very first meeting right through the closing we felt like we were dealing with a trusted advisor and a friend who was looking out for our best interests. Especially during some tense negotiations you were always cheerful and pointed us in the right direction. Thanks so much for all your help, we've already recommended you to two of our friends thinking of selling."

“I hired Steve and Luke to sell my 3 unit rental property in Milton. I have bought and sold a lot of properties over the years and it is always hard to pay the commission, But I want you to know this is one time I do not regret having to pay the commission because they did such a fabulous job. Steve was always responsive, whether I called him or emailed him or texted him he always got back to me. He did not do things the easy way, he did them the right way and it really made a difference. If you are looking to buy or sell a home or investment property you can’t go wrong hiring Steve Lipkin.”
-Diane Lemieux, Milton
"I just wanted to express my elation despite the trials and tribulations of selling property. I hope you realize the talent and perseverance of Steve Lipkin. He is not only abreast of the forms and regulations of the world of realty, he is quick to respond and, actually answers his phone when it rings; a very unusual commodity today! He made my involvement minimal, and set the whole process in a manner of ease and facility. I normally don't “megaphone” my thanks in this fashion, but I could not remain silent on this one."
- Jack Mentes, Burlington

I would recommend Luke to anyone."
"I just wanted to say thanks for all of your help on the Nye purchase. You were great to work with and so very helpful with all of our hurdles. You are a true 5 STAR realtor and will be referring you to our realty network so if we ever have any other clients up in your area we can refer them over to you. -Thanks again!"
- Kody Gilbow VA Mortgage Lender
"We both felt you were great finding us a place to live. The most important thing was that you were not pushy, you had a great selection of various properties and you didn't try and push us out of our budget like many other agents tried to do. Honestly for Max and I you were perfect.
Thank you Luke.”
