About Us

Walpole isn't just our job, it's our way of life.

Burton Realty is a small family owned business founded in 1994, run and staffed by locals who love where they live.

The Burton family came to Walpole in 1927 as part of the land settlement scheme that opened up the area for farming and bolstered the Walpole township. Joe Burton grew up in Walpole and began selling property out of Denmark in 1978. In 1994 he founded the first Real Estate office in Walpole, with the intent to provide a local perspective for those captivated by the area.

Burton Realty provides corporate sponsorship for a number of community and sporting groups in the area, as well as sporting events such as the Pioneer Cup and the Walpole In The Trees Regatta.

These local ties give us a great insight into the Walpole regional community, and allow us to offer anyone purchasing a property in the area a year’s free membership to either the Walpole Yacht Club or the Walpole Country Club. We feel that part of our responsibility in selling you a property is to help you connect with your new community, and provide a smooth transition into small town living.
