Having grown up on the South Side of Chicago and attended DePaul University, Maureen has had the opportunity to live in many of the city’s greatest neighborhoods. After graduating college with a finance degree, Burk started her career trading baskets and ETFs for a proprietary options firm in Chicago, then moved to Philadelphia for a decade-long stint as an institutional equities broker. This opportunity allowed her to work with some of the brightest and successful minds on Wall Street and showed her how hard work, personal relationships and strong negotiating skills are integral to successful business dealings.
Maureen’s passion (and sometime obsession) for home design and renovation, coupled with her interest in improving how people use their living spaces, made her transition from finance to real estate an easy and natural one. Maureen brings her keen eye for transformation and potential to every transaction; she has personally remodeled numerous homes and designed an award-winning kitchen.
Backed by Keller Williams’ advanced real estate technology, Maureen’s market expertise and relationships with industry vendors allows her to give her clients a seamless, efficient experience from start to finish.
A converted Philadelphia Eagles fan, Maureen resides in Glen Ellyn with her husband and 3 children and actively supports Hephzibah House, Bridge Communities, Glen Ellyn Newcomers and Glen Ellyn Juniors.
