Meet Stephan Burke and Carol Cassis of Cassis Burke Collection at Brown Harris Stevens

Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephan Burke and Carol Cassis. Their team shared their story with us below.

Please kick things off for us, where does this story begin?
In 2013, Stephan Burke and Carol Cassis met at a Luxury Real Estate Event in Beverly Hills, California. Shortly thereafter the Cassis-Burke Collection was born. In 2014, the Cassis-Burke Collection were the first realtors in the US who sold a property successfully where the buyer converted their Bitcoin to cash in order to purchase a home. They then studied the process and gathered enough information and research to move to the next step. In 2017, the Cassis-Burke Collection invented and performed the first known Bitcoin to Bitcoin, wallet to wallet Real Estate purchase of a property in Miami, Florida. Then in 2018, they did it again! This is truly living the American Dream! With cryptocurrency, a small investment can turn into big returns, and you can buy a property! It does not matter where you went to college, or what you do, or how much money you have, with Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, you can buy a house!

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Overall, it has been a smooth road. Cryptocurrency and real estate have been exciting for us but at the same time challenging because the business is not on the same page. Title companies, lawyers, real estate brokerages are still operating with old technology.

What were they like growing up?
Stephan Burke was always curious, ambitious, positive and loved challenges. Growing up in the African Congo and spending his summers in a French Chateaux in the Bordeaux wine region, he loved to play marbles, make model airplanes, enter mathematical contests, make jokes and loved to dance.

Carol Cassis was born in Santa Monica California and grew up in Santiago, Chile. She enjoyed playing reporter from early years and study hard to get into the front of the camera. She was always interested in traveling and learning new languages. She had the chance to live in Porto Alegre in the South of Brazil learning the culture, language, and dances. She played the guitar and practiced belly dancing and samba.
