Testimonials

“Kristin Burns is an incredible agent. Her thoroughness, communication, and personal attention are impressive. Our home was listed with a different agent for six months and we had hardly any interest. We had zero offers in those six months. It was a bit stressing since we were relocating and trying to buy in our new location. We wish we would have found Kristin from the beginning. She will tailor an analysis of your market area, your local competition and your home. Then she'll work with you to build a strategy that meets your personal expectations (she even took the time to walk through ten of the competitor properties). She's honest and straightforward, but always polite and professional. She'll walk you through options to show off the high points of your property and downplay any potential trouble spots. Once Kristin put us back on the market we were under contract in four days with an offer above our asking price. Once we were under contract we really appreciated her ability to lay out expectations and milestones and also help us think through actions that might be needed if things don't follow exactly as planned. She was a skilled negotiator and delivered excellent results for us at every point of interaction with the buyer's agent. She has amazing attention to detail and will try her best to provide a worry-free experience from beginning to end!”

“We consulted Kristin years ago about the sale of our rental property and were impressed with her knowledge, guidance, and approach. We chose to wait over five years to actually list our place and went right back to Kristin. She did not disappoint! Kristin provided honest feedback about what needed to be done to make our property sell quickly. She priced our house right and it sold within one week of listing. Kristin was great to work with and we've already recommended her to several friends and family members!”

“I had worked with Kristin Burns before and knew her to be a skilled and hard working agent. I also had acquaintances who had been very happy with her work previously. As always Kristin's advice was impeccable in every way including pricing, staging, negotiating, and closing the sale. We followed her advice and we are so happy with the results. Kristin far exceeded our expectations. ”

“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 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. ”

“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.”

“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!”

“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. ”

“The best agent that I have ever worked with, never panics, keeps everyone involved, does what it takes to sell the property and actually did MUCH more than she is responsible for to sell the property. I have bought and sold several properties, and have NEVER met a better realtor! Kristin is professional, calm under pressure, not afraid to call and talk to you about the process, and because I was out of town and unable to be there to handle many of the inspections and repairs, she handled it all for me. Kristin went way over her responsibilities to make sure the house showed well, repairs were taken care of, and had reliable contractors at her disposal to make the estimates and repairs. I would recommend her to anyone! ”

“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 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)

“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 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. ”

“Kristin Burns is a true real estate professional. I have trusted her with buying or selling four properties, in diverse markets and locations, and will rely on her in the future. Her abilities span all aspects of the process from dealing with a clients quirks to hard core negotiating. There is nothing she can't handle and I trust her implicitly.”

“ 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 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)

“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!”
