Kristin did a superior job in selling my house, and as I reflect on what impressed me most, I think it must have been her obvious knowledge, sense of purpose, and high confidence. I have already recommended her to a friend who is also selling.

She has established relationships with a support staff, stager, painter, carpet companies, general contractors and more, that made preparing our home for sale much less difficult than if we had to seek these contractors our ourselves.

Kristin was extremely aggressive in marketing our property. She engaged photographers who were able to take Drone shots of our home which sits on a 1/2 acre treed lot backing to a lake, with dock, Pontoon boat, beach, patios, screened porch and more. She had to fore site to see the uniqueness of our home and setting and immediately chose to do her very best to have professional photos, post cards and flyers, to present our older home in the best light. She has a very strong web presence and made sure to maximize the exposure of our home on the web. We feel this critical in todays market.

“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. ”
e.g. Paul Higgins and Emily Nak, Annandale Va. (Buyer)
“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!”
S. A. - North Carolina (Seller)
“We were very satisfied with the process of purchasing our house using Kristin's services from the beginning to the end. Kristin was very professional, polite, knowledgeable, and very responsive. It goes without saying that the stakes of buying a house for a family are very high. Kristin gives the confidence from the start that she can do the job with the expertise that it takes to handle all the important transactions. At the end of the whole purchase process we can call Kristin a friend and would recommend her to anybody.
Most of all we appreciated, her local knowledge, personable approach, relational skills and constructive guidance. A job well done!”

Maureen O'Connor, Woobridge VA (Seller)
“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.”

“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. ”
Paul Higgins, Fairfax Va. (Seller)
“Kristin used her years of experience to ensure we were ready to sell. She helped us understand what we needed to do to get our house ready for market and provided a list of local trusted vendors who helped us make needed upgrades and repairs. Kristin really understood the market and put together a marketing campaign focused on an on-line presence. She brought in professionals to photograph and video our home and posted the sales information on all the major websites. This resulted in a truly exceptional online presence that, when launched, resulted in immediate interest and viewings. We had multiple offers within days. Kristin then did something I had never had another realtor do for us. She contacted the lending institutions for each offer and validated that the offers we had were truly quality offers. We met with her face-to-face and she laid out all of our offers. She expertly talked us through each item on each offer so we understood all the details. We selected the best offer for us and then Kristin actively managed the process all the way through a successful closing. Through the entire process, from our first meeting to closing, Kristin was always available to answer questions and provide sound advice. She is absolutely trustworthy and a very nice person. I highly recommend Kristin to anyone and will use her again in the future.”
Mark and Alicia Young (Seller)
“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.”
