Testimonials

“We have worked with Kristin on other properties so those positive experiences were the deciding factor in selecting her again. Kristen made the stressful process of selling a much loved home as painless as possible. Her help and advice was faultless. Kristin delivers on any wish list you might have for a realtor. I would never buy or sell a home in NOVA without her help. ”

“We were leaving a home we had enjoyed for 18 years, due to health concerns. We were not sure that we were going to be able to find another home we could like as much, but with Kristin's help and positive attitude as well as encouragement, we are now living in a home we love even more! We contacted Kristin to "see if there were properties that might fit our needs". We were not even certain that we were ready to move. Kristin was more than willing to send us information on properties for sale and did not hesitate to take us to look at representative homes for sale that might meet our needs. We had certain neighborhoods in mind and Kristin was able to send us several listings in those areas as well as others she felt might work for us. We found a home we love the first day we went looking. Put our home up for sale and made an offer on the home we eventually purchased. Kristin never hesitated to show us homes even though we weren't even certain we were ready to move. Another testimony to her professionalism and willingness to meet the needs of her clients whether they are ready to purchase or not. Kristin is a true professional. She is ethical, honest, hard working and friendly. She listens, is able to calm the nerves of anxious purchasers, and truly cares about what is best for all parties in the transaction. I would not hesitate to recommend Kristin to friends and family.”

We sincerely enjoyed our association with Kristin.”

“Kristin is hard working and honest, with a strong attention to detail and a lot of experience. She takes a personal interest in her clients' well being and will give good advice, even if it hurts her bottom line. I have seen her go far beyond the requirements of her job role to help me and her other clients. I recommend Kristin to anybody who needs a realtor for buying or selling. She helped me buy two houses and she is currently my seller's agent for my old house.”

“I was very pleased with Kristins ability to keep everything organized and to provide a plan when it came to overcoming obsticles such as repairs and negotiations. She always kept me informed, rarely ever needed to call her. She would contact me first. Kristin made selling my house as stress free as a stressful situation gets. There are times I felt frustrated, but Kristin always settled me down with positive reassurance. Kristin was always there when I needed her and would meet me close to my home if needed. I live around 30 miles north of her in a heavy traffic area, so that was pretty awesome. ”

“OUTSTANDING -- 8 stars out of 5 possible!!! Kristin is personable, professional, follows-up, and follows through everytime! She went far beyond my expectations in assisting my in preparing my home to be sold, staging my home professionally, listing the home and showing the home. Here Comparative Mortgage Analyis (CMA) was "spot on" for the market and pricing! Additionally, she's been completely on top of all the paperwork and requirements through escrow and closing. I've sold many homes, and Kristin (and her team) are the BEST real-estate team I've ever used. I can't say enough, other than IF YOU DON'T HIRE KRISTIN, YOU'RE SELLING YOURSELF SHORT!!! ”

Kristin goes above and beyond to help. She is a great realtor and a wonderful person. She was readily available throughout the entire process. She kept me informed, advocated for me and supported me. I would recommend Kristin to anyone looking to buy or sell in the NOVA area. She is a wealth of information and a pleasure to work with. ”

“I've worked with Kristin with the sale of my house and was really happy and excited to work with her again, this time buying a home. I did talk to other agents to see what they had to offer, but none of them seemed as prepared or as helpful as Kristin. Kristin really understood the area and the market. When we found a home, she made sure to go over it with us and to cover anything that might come on the homeowner’s inspection. We always felt comfortable with her findings and decisions. Kristin was always there when we needed her and often she was the first to make contact when something came up. It felt great having someone there I knew I can depend on with timely and clear communication. Buying a home can be stressful, but thanks to Kristin it wasn't as bad as it probably could have been. It was actually pretty enjoyable. ”

“Kristin Burns really shined as a realtor for us, mainly in her area expertise and industry knowledge which we were focusing on and found key to making a fast and successful sale. Kristin gave us the facts and offered intelligent, useful suggestions in how to proceed. She offered her personal opinion and provided solid contractors that were also of high quality and integrity, ensuring the work got done in a timely manner and to our standards. Kristin excels at her local area knowledge of the Montclair, VA area which allows to her provide us with crucial information about how the market is performing, how other properties compare, etc at a fine level, giving us a very clear target pricing and goals to be comparable. Her performance allowed us to pick the right areas to renovate to reach our goals and listed the property at the right price to sell for best value and with optimal turnaround. Highly recommended.”
Tyler Beckett, Monclair, VA (Seller)

“Kristin did a great job of helping us prep our home and selling it one day. She was also very helpful helping us get through the inspection process and finalizing the sale. Very professional and we highly recommend her!”

“Kristin came to our initial appointment well prepared with area market conditions and various sales scenarios. We were quite impressed with her knowledge of the local real estate market and her preparation. Kristin never failed us in anything that was needed to ensure our home sold. She followed through with everything she agreed to do. We needed assistance in updating our home for sale and she directed us to the person she uses for staging. This proved to be the best advice. With the assistance of Kristin and design work from Sharon Potter with Red Chair designs, we had a home that sold in less than a week with six offers. Kristin Burns ensured that all tasks needed for closure were completed in a timely manner. She went above and beyond. We were no longer living in the area and she took care of everything! She also ensured that we got value for any expenditure and did not spend anything unnecessarily. Exemplary in every respect!”

“Kristin is the hardest working and most honest realtor I have met. Several times as my buyer's agent, she gave me blunt advice that contradicted her own self interest and helped me avoid mistakes. She could have been done with me in half the time, but she told me to wait until a house became available that was truly right for me. She advocates for her clients and will not rest until they have the best home for their needs. Her approach as a seller's agent appears to be equally good. Kristin is always busy, but she makes time for you when you need it, and she always calls you back if she can't take your call. She keeps everything organized and moving forward. You are in good hands with Kristin and you can trust her completely.”
