About Burb.com – The Real Estate Search Portal For Southern California Homes

Based in Laguna Beach, CA, Burb.com was launched in 2018 as a Real Estate search portal for Southern California homes.

The aim of Burb.com is to provide a locally based website to search homes for sale in Orange County and Los Angeles county, free of charge, free of advertising and free of out of date or sold listings; if you see a property listing on Burb.com it is a current listing. Our aim is to provide you with the best property search experience possible.

Burb.com enables you to search the MLS free of charge, without the need to create an account to view property information. Of course, if you want to create an account to save property searches this is an option offered free of charge as well.

When you inquire about a property listing on other Real Estate search websites, you get inundated by Real Estate Agents calling, emailing and texting you. When you inquire about a property listing on Burb.com, your inquiry goes only to one agent, who will never ‘spam’ you with unwanted contact, because that’s the way we believe it should be.

We work with buyers, sellers and investors throughout Orange County and Los Angeles county. If you’re outside of these areas and would like a referral to a great Realtor, we’d be happy to recommend someone.

Burb.com is currently only available in Southern California.

Have some suggestions for how we can improve the Burb.com user experience? Reach out and let us know using the form below.

Jenny was trained and mentored by Beverly Hills Real Estate Agent Josh Flagg, of Bravo TV’s Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles. She is coached by Betty Graham, former President of Coldwell Banker’s luxury division and manager of their Beverly Hills office.

Through a trusted network, developed over the course of her career, Jenny has access to many off-market properties (‘pocket listings’) and Coming Soon listings, and she has personally founded a website enabling Real Estate Agents to discreetly market these off-market homes. Jenny has worked with numerous distinguished clients and is experienced in handling off-market listings and real estate transactions requiring the utmost discretion, in addition to publicly marketed homes.

Born and raised in England, Jenny is well placed to assist International buyers and sellers whether they are relocating or simply searching for a pied-a-terre. Her past Real Estate transactions have included everything from apartments and single-family homes, through to listed historic homes, equestrian properties, homes in conservation areas, and even a property within a modernized medieval castle. Jenny has also personally renovated several Victorian homes.

Jenny has also personally experienced a number of traumatic life events; this gives her an enormous amount of empathy and understanding for those experiencing challenges and enables her to work with them from a point of understanding and compassion.

Jenny is the grand-daughter of celebrated British artist Norman Cornish, who told her from an early age that “those who follow will always be behind”; she has gone on to live her life by this quote, actively pursuing innovation to the point that she and the companies she has founded have received nominations for several national awards including the prestigious Inman 2015 ‘Innovator Of The Year’ award, a national real estate industry award, for which the website she founded was a finalist.

Technology has changed the Real Estate industry drastically over the last ten years; Jenny draws upon her business and technology experience to provide her clients with a blend of traditional, technology driven, and out-of-the-box marketing techniques that deliver results in today’s Real Estate market.

She lives in Orange County with her husband John and their three children. In her spare time, she designs and makes her own line of fine gemstone jewelry and volunteers her time to provide pro bono business support and mentoring to local companies and entrepreneurs (including former clients) launching their first business.

John Sharpe – Director of Operations

Born and raised in the city of Orange, John has witnessed firsthand the cultural diversity and growth of Orange County over the last four decades. From his early years traveling around the county with his father on their weekend adventures to his time working as an attractions host on the Matterhorn at Disneyland during college, John often reminisces about how a county once dominated by orange groves and eucalyptus trees has now become one of the most desirable locations to live within the United States.

While his parents were out of state and their Real Estate Agent unavailable, John had his first experience with real estate when he was called upon to “show” his family’s home at the age of 16. The home was sold due to his open house event, and a passion for real estate and development was born.

John is a dedicated listener and believes that anything is possible if you just observe and pay attention. His philosophy of; “anyone can know – the point is to understand”, drives him to deliver beyond expectations.

For many years John worked as a network engineer with AT&T. Timing and managing critical dates relating to network infrastructure build outs for billion-dollar companies along with Federal government agencies were an essential part of his daily work schedule. Fostering relationships and mastering problem-solving techniques has enabled John to deliver the quality and attention to detail that our Real Estate clients deserve.

An avid traveler, John enjoys spending time in Italy which he considers to be his other home. Wine is a deep-rooted passion and he is constantly seeking out knowledge and wisdom as he chases down some of his favorite Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the boutique wineries that produce them. He hopes to have his own vineyard one day. Formula One Grand Prix Racing, photography, writing and spending time with his family round out his many interests.

Eric The Intern.

You may meet our intern Eric at an open house or while he’s out delivering flyers, or gifts to our clients. He’s a High School student in Irvine and is considering a career in Real Estate when he graduates college.
