Irvine >G.W. Burke & Associates
Don't Do Business with them. They give you false promises and once you sign with them you are on your own. THEY DO NOT WORK FOR YOU, they will put you aside once they get money from the insurance company. We had a terrible experience with them and their contractor. They will BS you and give you the run around.
Better Business Bureau Accredited Member with an A+ Rating.
updated**I would strongly urge Jose G. and John H. to contact the Better Business Bureau about a complaint so it is something we can respond to and resolve (if valid) as opposed to leaving some disparaging remarks on a citysearch website. We have an A+ rating with the BBB and have been in business for over 15 years--this doesn't happen by ripping people off.
My name is Peter Sanger and I am the Office Manager of G.W. Burke & Associates. I have worked for the company since its inception in December of 1997. Mr. Burke has over 25 years of insurance adjusting industry experience. Our company has negotiated thousands of insurance claims in the best interests of our homeowners. We currently have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and are an Accredited Member.
Suffering a fire loss or any type of major property claim is a stressful and hard time for the owner. We are able to relieve the burden for the homeowner and handle all aspects of the insurance claim. We use industry specific vendors to write estimates of damage and repair that are accepted by insurance companies for negotiation.
Mr. Burke personally does each and every Total Loss Inventory on our client's contents and does not sub-contract this out to minimum wage workers.
We work with several relocating firms to get our clients in a temporary house or hotel while repairs are being finished, many times loaning clients money to cover these expenses until they are reimbursed by the insurance company.
We are very successful in what we do, as evidence by our claims history and the fact we have been in business for over 13 years. It is an absolute fact we get our clients a higher settlement with our assistance than what would've been offered by the insurance company. It's not always easy fighting for every penny and sometimes it causes necessary delays, but it is in the best interests of our clients.
We are required by the Department of Insurance to show full transparency with our contract and disclosure forms. We go above and beyond in our presentation to gain the trust of our clients and make them feel comfortable their interests are being protected. We're not successful unless we can successfully negotiate insurance claims.
Like in any business, you cant please everyone and I do not want to discount a couple of negative reviews as we are always striving to be better. We hope you consider G.W. Burke & Associates as your public adjuster if you ever have a need for our services. Thank You.
BEWARE OF G.W..
Yea they are all a bunch LIARS!!!! Dont use there service, you will REGRET it... your better off using your insurance company, they will keep your insurance money.. what they say and what they do are not the same, there out to get your insurance money to keep it for themselves, they care less about the victim and there loss SO DONT USE G.W. CROOKS!!!! thats what there name should be ( G.W. CROOKS & ASSOCIATES)
If you sign with them you still have 3 days to CANCEL!!! ask around about them you will see for yourslf
Run as fast as you can!. I am sure that the glowing reviews are by gw burkes employees or even the big burke himself. His representative lied straight to our face just to get us to sign. Then when the money finally came in the big burke himself lied to us. You are made to feel all important (and it works because youre going through a disaster and are pretty f'ed up, I mean come on our house just burned down) and as soon as they get paid youre on your own. If we had know then what we know now we wouldve just taken our chances with the insurance company. GW Burke made our bad situation worse.....BEWARE
Thank you.. Seldom does one find a person who is both understanding and compassionate, and efficient and competent, during a difficult and trying time.
GW Burke & Associated Helped me. Just want to say thank you to GW Burke & Associates for making this process much easier for me to handle. Not only did they take care of everything for me...they got me much more back than my insurance company was planning on settling for me. I would recommend this service to any of my family and friends who experience this type of loss...They are the BEST!
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE SIGNING. If you have signed there is still time to get out within three days. DO IT NOW. Though they do get more money from the insurance company than you would by yourself. However, between them and their inhouse contractors, they pocket most all of the money. They make many promises about temp housing then send you a bill if you complain. IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME ... just call thier own references. When they first come out they give you a packet with some previous clients or References... call them at least half of them had bad experiences.
I work for GW Burke -Our client's admission, WE GET MORE MONEY FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY THAN BY YOURSELF. The assertion we pocket most of the money is incorrect. We are required by law to provide an authorized contract and full disclosure about public adjusters and the options available. He also said--we swoop down on fire victims and take them for thousands. We are licensed and bonded by the California Department of Insurance. Please call our references and read our testimonials.
Gw Burke Saved me from a horrible insurance fire claim. My insurance company applied the 3 D's to me which stand for Deny, Delay and Defend, they gave their estimate on my house which was a ridiculos low figure, It was bad enough having my house burn down, I didnt need the aggravation of the insurance companies bs, to go with it. I hired GW Burke and Associates to handle my claim, not only did they get a fair amount for my claim, their contractors did an outstanding job of rebuilding my home, I would recomend their services,
Contracts mean little.. These guys are currently under investigation from the state of CA. They keep money that is not theirs and ignore contracted rates. It is very difficult to litigate, so just warning you. You will win, but it takes a lot of time and money to get help. They cost far more than they save.
I am aware of our previous client Ms. Holmes and unfortunately this was a bad experience for both parties. We did get her a maximum settlement after she hired us, but later said she would've gotten it without our help and brought litigation against us. My office would be happy to discuss the matter further to any potential clients. Her claim about us being "investigated" is false. Clients are free to contact the D.O.I. to resolve an issue they may have with us.
