His wife, Janet, a Salida native and long-time local business owner, was voted 2007 Woman of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce. A close-knit family, their grown son and daughter-in-law and adorable one-year-old granddaughter live in Colorado Springs. In 2002 Bob retired from thirty years in the automotive business and became a full-time Realtor. In 2007 he was named Salesman of the Year at First Colorado Land Office. Bob feels privileged to be of service to his clients. His extensive knowledge of the area and high ethical standards make him an extremely informed and honest broker. An easy-going, direct, and friendly person, he gives prospective buyers and sellers a strong sense of comfort and support as they go about the challenging and exciting business of finding, investigating and negotiating Arkansas Valley properties.

- It’s a great day. The house sold today and now we can all get back to normal life. I think you would say this was one of the most difficult processes you’ve ever been through in selling Real Estate. Without you and your persistence and professionalism this would never have happen. You stuck with me the whole way when you could have walked away. You went beyond the call of duty to represent my interest and those of First Colorado Land Office. You had to deal with the Court house, Lawyers, Department of Motor Vehicles, State Tax department, Banks, Renters and probably a whole lot more that I’ve forgotten about. I want to give you my sincere Thanks for everything you’ve done. You’re going to have some time on your hands now that you don’t have to listen to my daily phone calls asking some pretty outrageous questions.Steve Graves
- It was a pleasure working with Bob Burkhart in selling our family home. He was professional & knowledgeable every step of the way. He went the extra mile in preparing the CMA. It was not easy since the house was one of a kind. Selling the home that had been in our family for almost one hundred years was an emotional task but Bob made it go smoothly!Mary & Steve McAnally
