KW Real Estate Planners

A Real Estate Planner is a licensed real estate agent that is certified and has the knowledge, training, and experience to compassionately guide a real estate owner in ways to create generational wealth, minimize taxes and facilitate the goas of the family.

Why The Burk Team?

Do you already know a Real Estate Agent? The answer for most people is Yes. Often there is a family member or close friend who has a real estate license, or even someone you have used in the past. What we often see is people focusing on the current need to buy or sell their home, and missing out on how the purchase or sale fits into their long-term real estate strategy and reacting later in life. As a Keller Williams (KW) Real Estate planner, our approach to real estate is different. While a Real Estate Agent will focus on finishing the current transaction a Real Estate Planner helps ensure your current purchase or sale and future decisions you make throughout your lifetime help to achieve your long-term real estate goals. You will be amazed at the difference. a Real Estate Planner can make.

"Dana and her team are top notch. Her years of experience and her impeccable work ethic make working with her an absolute pleasure. I highly recommend Dana for anything to do with Real Estate."

"1 word FANTASTIC! Dana and Alan were awesome. Dana helped us sell our 1st house that we had outgrown and were looking to leave because of the area. It took a little while, 6 months, but we finally found our place. There were several times I wanted to just throw in the towel, and Dana and Alan were so encouraging and informative. Selling was easy, but buying was up and down...We'd find a place we really liked and then interest rates would go up, or we'd lose out to another buyer, but we were told to just stick with it and don't settle thinking we needed to; something would eventually come around that was right for us and yes it did! We found a cute little 3-bedroom, 1 bathroom house on just under .25-acre lot. It's perfect for our family."

  -Rachel Lyn Rogers, Client

"I first contacted Alan Burk in December 2016 about relocating to Salem. Over the next six years, Alan was very patient with me in many ways. He taught me about Oregon real estate, details one needs to know when building outside of city services, and so much more! I greatly appreciate Alan’s patience because it took years to finally find, not one but two, properties to make our Oregon relocation dream come true! Thank you, Alan, for being patient, for being a great teacher, and encouraging me to “look at everything.” I was concerned about wasting Alan’s time looking at some properties, but that was never a concern for him."

  -Ruth Fee Lemmon, Client

"The Burk team was extremely helpful in navigating the process of purchasing a home. They laid out step by step what to expect, they helped communicate and solve problems with all the various entities involved. They were patient as it took us a long time to find the house and they were exceptional in getting us the deal in such a competitive market. I would certainly use them again."

Keller Williams Capital City


Hi, I'm Dana Burk.  My husband Alan and I have been helping our friends and clients buy and sell real estate in Salem Oregon since 2003.  

Alan was a contractor in his previous career and lends that view on homes when working with our home buyers. 

Dana was an industrial engineer and manager prior to real estate and brings strong negotiating and organization skills to the table.

Together we bring a wealth of knowledge to help you with your real estate needs.

We have a special heart for first time buyers and teach a home buying class with our favorite lending partner.

We enjoy helping our clients and friends as they transition through life. We help with your real estate needs from that first house, to a growing family, to children going off to college, to moving to a smaller home or even into assisted living.

Having a mom with dementia has given me a passion for our seniors. We have many services to help them as they age and we are Senior Relocation Specialists and Senior Real Estate Specialists.  We are partnered with a senior move manager and an organizer that can help you go through your things and de-clutter.

We love real estate and this beautiful area that we call home.  I am a sixth generation Oregonian and think we have the best of everything in this state.  We have the Pacific coast where we love to fish, clam and crab. We have the beautiful Willamette Valley that can grow just about anything from berries to vegetables, flowers, and lots of trees and fruit trees.  We can ski and play in the Cascade mountains.  We have high desert and the beautiful Columbia River. I think my favorite place where I grew up is Joseph Oregon.  The Alps of Oregon. We have hundreds of parks and lots of lakes to fish and camp.
