Burton’s background

Prior to joining Windermere’s Seattle office, Burton served as executive vice president and COO of HER Realtors and Trident Holdings. Back in May, HER Realtors opened a new branch in Central Ohio, a 2,126-square-foot property at 3806 N. High St. At HER Realtors, he was responsible for the management and development of various profit centers including commercial, property management, relocation and lead generation/disposition. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kentucky.

“We still like to think of Windermere as a small, family-run business, but the reality is that we are now a 300-office, 10-state company and growing,” Geoff Wood, CEO of Windermere Real Estate, said. “As is often the case with Windermere, we didn’t pursue candidates for this position; rather, the right person came along who we knew would be a great addition to our company, and his skills and experience just happened to be the perfect fit for COO.”
