Testimonials

“Kristin was AMAZING! She showed up at our house with a book explaining the market in our neighborhood with our home’s info already plugged in. She explained what to expect and gave us “homework” so she could better represent our home. She was so detail oriented and kept us completely informed. She responded to every text and phone call immediately. Her kindness and confidence were so appreciated. She had us hold on until we got what we were asking and didn’t settle for the lower bids that came in first. She’s truly a pro!!!! The brochures she printed for our home were GORGEOUS! My daughter and I looked through the pages and were blown away! We joked that we wanted to buy the house in the pictures!!! From her suggestions of colors to paint our walls and the stager’s furniture and art choices, our house looked catalog worthy!!! Kristin gave us a checklist to use throughout the whole process so we always knew what came next. Her signage and print work can only be described as classy. Then during our closing she was bummed we didn’t have her favorite attorney from her title company — which is mind boggling because the lawyer we were assigned was blown away with Kristin’s work. I couldn’t help but wonder why THIS guy wasn’t her favorite since he thought she was the cat’s meow. He couldn’t believe what she got for our home during the current market. He couldn’t believe she got the people we were buying from to cover our closing costs given the market. He was blown away we were moving into our new home with $12,000 in equity from the start. I knew Kristin was good, but this guy who understood the markets better than I ever could was blown away by what she did for us. She’s the BEST!!! There aren’t enough superlatives to describe our experience with Kristin. From selling our home to buying our new home, she was the consummate professional. And as if she hadn’t already bent over backwards to help us sell our last house and buy this current one, we walked into our new home with her and she had a really beautiful basket filled with super thoughtful house-warming gifts. I will suggest her to everyone I know looking to buy or sell their homes! You can’t beat Kristin’s warmness, work ethic or results!!!! She is truly THE BEST!!!! They always had what we needed when we needed it. They were friendly and welcoming. Great group of people!!! You can’t do better than Kristin!!!”

“I chose Kristin primarily because of her frank, no-nonsense, direct, honest approach to the activity at hand. She was CLEARLY an expert; experienced, intelligent, professional, direct, and had a plan and track record. She has/had a process to sell my home. She knew her business and clearly studied and took very seriously one of the most important transactions of our lives. I had complete confidence that, with her, we'd get the very best deal on our house. I chose her over another agent with a lower commission, because I was confident she was THAT good. Her service/input/advice on what needed/didn't need to be done to/with the property to prepare to list it, the process of handing home viewing by prospects, decisions on interim offers, and the review and decision of what offer to select was simply exceptional. She KNOWS her business and I was absolutely confident that we should do everything she suggested, just as she suggested. Christine Gable was the only other staff with which I worked and she was simply exceptional as well. VERY organized and efficient. Those two seem to make and outstanding team. VERY pleased with them both...”

“Kristin Burns sold my parent's home and helped me buy the home I just sold 11 years ago. My parents home sold in 13 days and she helped me navigate through 5 offers to make a successful offer on a foreclosure at the bottom of the housing market in 2008. So when it was time to sell that home, Kristin was my first and only call. I moved to New York City before my home went on the market, so Kristin and her team stepped in to help with many things small and large since I was not local (i.e. re-installing blinds that were broken by housecleaners, letting in contractors for various inspections/repairs, etc...). I had peace of mind based on my established relationship with Kristin. Once on the market, my home got over 30 showings, 8 offers and was under contract in 4 days. She helped me navigate the home inspection process and subsequent repairs and closed in 30 days. Throughout the process, Kristin was always available, patient and helpful. If you're looking for a trustworthy, knowledgeable agent who gets great results, Kristin Burns is who you want. ”

“When it came time to sell our father's home due to his age and health, we knew it was going to be an undertaking. Our father had been receiving flyers with Kristin Burns information on them for some time, and she was located in the same neighborhood as dad. We reached out to her and immediately were impressed with her professionalism, knowledge and how down to earth and genuine she was. As we were located on the west coast, Kristin was able to coordinate other services for us such as inspections, painters and remodel contractors and a chimney service. She made the entire process so easy and it was a huge relief to our family to have someone of her talent and character on our side to help with this process. We are just so thrilled to have worked Kristin and would heartily recommend her to anyone. She is a true professional and made us feel confident every step of the way. ”

“Kristin was the most prepared, knowledgeable, professional agent we could ask for. She came highly recommended by a trusted friend and she exceeded our wildest expectations. She communicates effectively and in a timely manner; she provides useful insights for preparing a home for the market; she knows her business better than the competition. While other properties languished on the market due to improper pricing or poor marketing, ours sold in days.... twice! When our first buyer struggled with financing, Kristin was a passionate advocate for our cause while also showing compassion and grace to the struggling buyer. Her superior approach, detailed plan, and expansive market knowledge combined with class and integrity make her, in our view, tops in her field. ”

“We worked with Kristin to both buy and sell our first home. She was phenomenal! Our house sold in one day for more than our list price. Kristin provided exceptional marketing materials that I believe pushed us ahead of the competition. Plus, she was friendly and professional with every interaction we had, even when we were slightly needy first time home buyers and sellers. ”

“We met Kristin back in 2003 when she was a brand new agent. Even then, we could tell that she had a unique and special talent for working in real estatey. She helped us purchase our first home in Virginia and we readily sought her services when it was time to sell 15 years later. It's amazing to see how the real estate business has changed in 15 years with so many new online tools and features. What hasn't changed, though, is Kristin's ability to serve her clients at an extremely high level. Her attention to detail, strategic counsel and breadth of experience and knowledge of the local market are unmatched! We live in Florida now and because of Kristin's careful planning and rapid responses, we were able to sell our home quickly and efficiently. We had four offers in less than a week! If you're in the market to buy or sell in the northern Virginia area, you need to contact Kristin Burns. You'll be glad that you did.”

“ 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. ”

“Thank you for helping us sell our home. Kristin was very knowledgeable of the market and priced our house accordingly. We had 2 offers in the first day and could not be more pleased! Kristin works hard for her clients and we would highly recommend her to others!”

“I had purchased my home with Kristin 7 years ago. She handled the human aspect from every angle, size, how much we had to do renos, the fact that we were a growing family, and potential resale or rental in the future. I have had experiences with other brokers and agents on both ends of the purchase and sale and Kristin is without a doubt the best agent I have ever worked with. That being said, it was a natural choice to come back to her for the sale of my home. She walked me through the process and did an excellent job and delivered everything she promised! Everything about Kristin on a personal and professional level is top tier. I fear I may have been spoiled with a home sale process that took 6 weeks and had the house on the market for 2 days before it was under contract and less than 30 days to close”

“Kristin helped us with our home remodeling and painting as we prepared our home for sale. Her expertise helped to present the home at its best and therefore got us the best price. She was always professional and well acquainted with the industry and market and always made us feel like we were her most important clients.”

“I can not say enough good things about Kristin. We have known her for 11 years now and consider her a friend. She has helped us purchase two homes in the area. Both times, finding us something quickly, having just a weekend for house hunting. She has helped us rent out our home for 9 years, and now sell it after just 1 week on the market. She has such great knowledge of the area, is very professional, dependable, and will always go above and beyond.”

“Kristin is a great realtor who gets to know your wants and desires of a property and works quickly to find what your looking for. Kristin was a great help in a quick moving purchase. She kept us informed and was always available when we had questions and/or concerns. Her advice and recommendations were spot-on. Kristin knows how important relationships are and has built many with other professionals that will help get you the home you love. She has a great network of home inspectors, mortgage brokers, etc. for you to work with to get that home without any pressure. Kristin's dedication as a realtor doesn't stop at closing. She checks in to make sure everything is going well after closing and is always available should you have questions or concerns afterwards to provide advice and/or assistance.”

“Kristin was amazing. I am so happy I got to work with her. She made a difficult process less difficult. Kristin helped me navigate a challenging mortgage process and new home construction. 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. ”

“Thank you for the opportunity to comment on my experience with Kristin Burns and her team. I had a lot of fears going into the home buying process as a single women and having to do everything by myself. After meeting with Kristin all my fears were alleviated. She took the time to really understand what I was looking for in a home, gave me honest feedback on homes we looked at and was very knowledge about all the areas and homes we viewed. She explained to me how to understand community ratings and what to look for to find a safe community. Since I am single, that meant a great deal to me. Kristin was very patient with me regarding my lack of knowledge about the realestate market and the process. I did not worry about anything as she gracefully guided me through the process step by step. I had and have complete trust in her. Kristin is genuinely such a caring person and it was so evident that her priority was for me to find a home that met my needs and was a home of my dreams and not just make a sale. I was so fortunate to have her working for me. Again, Kristin's knowledge, skill, kindness and patience at every turn of the process is everything that anyone would want. I would not hesitate to recommend Kristin to anyone!”
