About Me

When I work with clients, it's a partnership. We work together as a team built on trust, honesty, commitment and communication.

I have found over the years that I have a passion for helping buyers and sellers navigate one of the most important decisions they will ever make during their lives. Not only is this an important financial investment, but it's also a personal one. I love to see the ways their home choice impacts their lives for years to come.

The educator in me wants to take time to walk my clients through each step. I do my best to simplify the process so they feel confident they understand each piece of the puzzle and make informed decisions.

Testimonials

“In our first meeting with Kristin it was clear she was knowledgeable. She was not only honest with us about what to expect but gave us thorough tools to research for ourselves. Every step of the way we felt fully informed and confident we were giving the best offer. Kristin gave us 110%. She was always available for questions and kept us in the loop for any and every development. I have never felt so supported. If she didn't have an immediate answer to a question, she'd find it as quickly as possible. She kept us focused, informed, and motivated. I never felt judged nor stupid for the questions I'd ask. I already have recommended Kristin Burns to several people. She genuinely cares about your needs and boundaries.”

“Kristen Burns exudes professionalism, knowledge and provides the highest level of personal attention. From our initial meeting, it was readily apparent that Kristen would care for us during the sale of our property like we were members of her own family. Through every step of the process of selling our home Kristen exceeded our expectations. Kristen listened to our needs and gave excellent advise. She made suggestions of improvements we could make to our home that would enhance our selling price and steered us away from areas that would not. She gave us access to her list of preferred contractors, stagers and trades persons. We were able to make necessary modifications in a short turn around time with wonderful results. Kristen developed a pricing strategy and marketing plan that exceeded our expectations. Her use of a professional photographer and internet real estate sites brought our home to many prospective buyers. We listed our home for showings on Thursday and on the following Monday we met to select our home buyer from multiple offers. The sale of our home went through seamlessly. We are completely satisfied with Kristen Burns. If our only child were buying or selling a home, we would trust Kristen Burns to be her agent.”

“Kristin helped us buy this home 12 years prior. She was instrumental in giving us advice on preparing and staging to ensure we would get top value for our home. We did and then some! Kristin is extremely professional and knowledgeable, well prepared, and excellent at communication. She also helped us on our search for a new home. She helped us tirelessly search until our situation took us out of her area, but she was supportive throughout the referral process and we are happily settled. I can’t say enough about Kristin’s heart for this job and her clients. You will not find anyone better!”

“July 16, 2021 Kristin Burns Century 21 Redwood Realty 5199 Waterway Drive Dumfries, Virginia 22025 Dear Kristin: We wanted to pass on our heartfelt thanks and sincere appreciation for the outstanding support and assistance you provided to us during the recent sale of our home in Dumfries. In all phases of this endeavor, your efforts were exceptional in every respect. It was an arduous process for us to make the decision to sell our home, made even more challenging by the many friends we had made in this wonderful neighborhood. Your expert insight helped us immensely. We were impressed with your professional abilities and individualized approach. This diligence takes considerable time and energy and helped pay dividends through the resulting sales contract. Your candor during the process and your ability to engage us on a personal basis - rather than succumb to the one size fits all technique, was noteworthy. We also wanted to pass on our personal gratitude for the splendid work done by the Century 21 Redwood Realty Staff. Their outstanding assistance throughout was invaluable and helped make the inescapable paperwork burden less emotional. In closing, we recognize that in many instances individuals often receive more credit or blame than they deserve for their actions. Being part of a resolute and effective team makes the journey easier, but you deserve acknowledgment that we hope to convey with this correspondence. Pease accept our sincere thanks for your dedication, compassionate assistance, and remarkable efforts as an advocate for our family. Sincerely, Chris Philbrick ”

“When I called, Kristin came over to our house despite it being her busiest season, she fit us in. She listened to our specific needs and helped pinpoint the best houses to look at. Everything went smoothly in a time sensitive situation and we found what we were looking for. She explained the current market, suggested how to proceed, and was open to all ideas we had as well. I felt supported, and I knew I could trust her to have our best interests in mind. I don’t know how she does it with many clients at once but somehow she made me feel like we were a top priority. We have bought and sold houses in the past and it is rare to have such a busy agent make time to answer all our questions.. Kristin is the exception. She was always there to answer calls and texts. I would recommend Kristin Burns to anyone. ”

“I had worked with Kristin Burns over 12 years ago to sell my previous house and buythe house that I am now selling and her guidance was always spot on, so I never considered any other realtors this time. I first discussed selling my home with Kristin over a year ago, knowing that there were things that would need to be updated or improved. She was able to guide me in determining which things were most critical and which were not important and was also able to provide me with references for contractors who all did great work on these improvements. The end result with a quick sale and multiple offers above asking price show how well she knows the market and what's important in selling a house. I would strongly recommend Kristin to any other buyers in the area. Her knowledge and understanding of the market is excellent.”

“Kristin has been a great help for 2 properties. In both cases, she worked and walked with us through the process. She helped us see what things we needed to have corrected before we put it on the market in order to maximize our price point. We are very happy to have had her as our agent and would use her again. She sold the property in a weekend at well over the asking price Kristin and her office have been great throughout the process and we have been very happy with them. We would recommend them to everyone!!”

“In the challenging Arlington condo sales market during COVID, Kristin Burns has once again worked her miracles. I must sound like a broken record when I recount her expertise, ethics and empathy. She has handled so many real estate transactions for me in the past 15+ years that I've lost count. I would never consider using anyone else in NOVA and I recommend her unequivocally to my friends. Just as I wouldn't perform surgery on myself, I wouldn't attempt to handle one of the most important financial and lifestyle transactions of my life without a professional.”
Debbie, Arlington VA (Seller)

“Kristin walked me through the entire process from our initial meeting and presented me with a timeline of what things would happen, even though I was three-thousand mile away. She was prepared with graphs and charts that explained how the market was trending and how my home is compared to others within the surround area all within the initial meeting. She listened to my concerns and assured me that everything will work out and they did. I wasn't just another client to her. She genuinely wanted to make the entire process and the decision making simple and easy. If your looking for a relator who will make the entire selling process simple, easy and less stressful, than Kristin Burns and her teach is for you. ”

She covered all the bases, answered all the questions and provided valuable advice and direction in a complicated transaction, After all you don't sell a house every day so having an agent to help the seller navigate the process is key, she took care of all of that for us. ”

Not only did she sell our house in 2 days, but she was always keeping us up-to-date with everything so we felt more involved. She made everything so easy and seamless. We are so grateful for the kindness, professionalism and efforts to make the transaction so easy. Thanks for the great experience! ”

“Kristin has helped me buy three properties and sell four. She works harder and smarter than any other realtor I have met. She knows the local market intimately, and when I asked her to find a house and later sell it an hour outside her normal range, she did her research and stepped up to the challenge. She is always available for questions, and usually completes documents within an hour or two. Her negotiating skill has proven essential in every purchase or sale I've made. I recommend Kristin to everyone I know.”
Bill Steinhardt, Reston (Seller)

“We have used Kristin for a few other real estate transactions, both as a buyers and sellers agent - we will never go with another! Kristin is knowledgeable, friendly & diligent and represents her clients well. Not only is she a great agent, but she becomes a lifelong friend who stays in touch long after the transaction is completed. I would recommend her to anybody looking to buy or sell. ”
