“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)
“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!!! ”
Jon C (Woodbridge) (Seller)
“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!”
“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.”

To sell your house quickly and for top dollar requires only 2 steps:

Kristin is, by far, the best realtor we have ever dealt with. Our house sold in less than a week for the full asking price. The settlement went through without any complications. My deepest thanks go out to Kristin Burns and all she did for us. ”

Brittany Blough, Hampton (Seller)
“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)
“We had never sold a home before and gave our trust to Kristin based solely on her outstanding Angie's list reviews and our initial interview with her. We followed all of her recomendations and were able to sell our home at a fair price and within a reasonable amount of time. We moved out of the area and Kristin handled everything for us which involved managing contractors fixing up our home including replacing the roof, landscaping, sump pump installation, etc.). Basically we gave her the keys to our house, moved to New Mexico and she sold our home for us including going to closing! (all we had to do was sign some online forms). I can't imagine how the service Kristin provided could have been any better and would definitely recommend her to anyone living in the Woodbridge/Dumfries area.

“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!”
Keith and Wendy, NC (Seller)
“Kristin was very considerate in her sales plan and her projection of the market was excellent.

“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. ”
Leslie Ruth Stallknecht, Dumfries, Virginia (Seller)
“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.”
Mike G., Manassas, VA (Buyer)
“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 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.
