“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)

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!”

Jeff Rapp, Alexandria (Seller)
“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!!! ”

Brittany Blough, Hampton (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.”

“Kristin Burns is the consummate professional Real Estate Professional. 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 used the most professional people to photograph our home, posted many pictures and videos on the net, and did her utmost to insure that our unique home got the most exposure possible.
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.

Jackie Pinion, Woodbridge, VA (Buyer)
“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.”

“ Kristin Burns personally cares about selling your home for the best price.
I would recommend Kristin as a realtor”
Joseph Ramseur, Dumfries, Va (Seller)
“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)

Very professional and we highly recommend her!”
Chris & Jayne Hazen (Seller)
“We have worked with Kristin on two real estate transactions, over 10 years apart. We were so impressed with Kristin the first time, that there was absolutely no thought to choosing anybody else the second time. Kristin is a true professional who can very quickly understand your specific needs or wants and goes out of her way to meet them. We strongly recommend Kristin and look forward to working with her again someday!”
Jill & Jack Cahill, Woodbridge, VA (Buyer)
“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.”
Bill Steinhardt, Montclair VA (Buyer)
