    If your lucky enough to get Kyle for a realtor you are very fortunate. I first encountered him 2 years ago when I was considering a move to Salem. He spent time showing me various neighborhoods that matched my price range and amenities (I recommend taking the survey on the website so he has a reference to start from). I recently bought a small 70 year old bungalow that is pretty much a time capsule in need of some updates. I can honestly tell you that Kyle is highly respected in the local real estate community and contractor industry. He holds esteem among his peers for his integrity, experience and savvy, know-how, professional ethics, and his kind nature. Even my mortgage lender complimented him. As a result, closing on my house was amazingly easy and matched the timeline Kyle set up at the beginning of the process. He also set me up with contractors to do the updates. I can't express how grateful I am for his steady pace, competence, availability, and willingness to show me the ropes to home improvements. Thank you, Kyle!

    Melina was with us for months while we prepped our house for sale, got it listed, and then sold. I can't imagine using any other realtor. It was our first time selling a house and there were a lot of moving parts (with renovations/repairs and a cross country move in the middle of things), but Melina guided and supported us every step of the way. I appreciate doing business with someone who is honest, realistic, and doesn't over-promise. I could tell Melina was all of those things from the first time we met with her and we trusted her completely from that moment on. Our sale was complicated, but we ended up selling over asking. I'm sure Melina doesn't miss our incessant texts and questions, but we definitely miss talking to her now that the house is sold. :) If you're looking for a realtor that won't pull the wool over your eyes, won't promise you the moon on something they can't deliver, but will give you their honest advice and counsel with your best interests at heart, then you can't go wrong with Melina Tomson and Tomson Burnham Realty. Highly recommend!

    Love, love, love Melina! She has helped us with both investment properties and our own home, exhibiting knowledge of the Salem real estate market approaching prescience, while simultaneously being personable, patient, and fun. She has exceptionally deep knowledge of all the neighborhoods in Salem, performs initial walkthroughs with the eye of an inspector and someone who understands remodels and restorations … because she’s done them herself. When we weren’t able to get to a property fast enough in this hot market, she sent videos of every aspect in which we were interested. And she somehow knew what we wanted before and better than we did. Amazing real estate agent.

    We worked with Kyle to buy a house in Salem, and he did a great job despite the challenges of working largely remotely with a buyer in a different city. He narrowed down our search quickly to the neighborhoods and houses that fit our needs. During viewings, he provided very useful input about the advantages and disadvantages of homes and locations. And when we found a house we liked, he helped us put together an offer that prevailed in a very tight market. While the house was under contract, Kyle advocated for us before we even asked, working with the seller to split the costs of for certain repairs - not an easy thing in a market as tight as this one. If we ever sell the house, we'll call Kyle.

    Buying a house site unseen is a daunting proposition. Kyle was able to help us navigate the epic transition of a cross-country move from house to house! He took the time to get to know us and guided our virtual house hunt across 3,000 miles and 3 time zones. Kyle was able to leverage his deep knowledge of Salem and brought such attention to detail that we knew we could trust his judgement. And the timing worked perfectly!

    Salem Oregon real estate agents at Tomson Burnham

    In an industry where being large is coveted, I am intentionally small. Tired of watching brokerages be in the business of hiring agents rather than the business of serving customers, I realized that I needed to run my brokerage differently than other companies.

    Armed with a vision, I launched Tomson Burnham, LLC in 2007. My vision: To have a brokerage representing only excellence in real estate representation to consumers. A true real estate brand in which a consumer can hire any agent at the firm and get nothing but excellence. To fully embrace the words real estate advisors and redefine what hiring a real estate agent means to consumers.

    I won’t make claims that I am the largest brokerage in the area because I’m not, by choice. I won’t claim that I have the most agents in town because I don’t, by choice. What I will claim is that I aspire to be the best and insist that the agents at my company set this same standard for themselves. Any agent at my company has to commit to standards of service. Consumers want real estate advisors: real guidance in the transaction.

    No scripts or slick sales pitches are used, just genuine, good representation. Consumers want good quality and effective marketing for the sale of their home. Consumers want more advice on a home purchase than “here is the kitchen.” They want a proven track record of quality. We provide all of this to our clients.
