“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.”
Kathy & Terry Pavlak (Buyer)
“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)
“Kristin Burns exceeded all expectations during the sale of my property. She's an expert in the local market and easily handled other agents questions and anticipated every issue. She is highly recommend if you want an smooth real estate transaction for top dollar.”
Chris Jones, Woodbridge (Seller)
“I interviewed Kristin going into this strictly as a job interview. I selected her and 3 other agents with same or comparable stats. It was obvious from the very beginning who the front runner would be (Kristin). I soon brought it down to 3, then days later 2. I had a set of questions ready for both candidates; but, I already knew in my heart who my winner was. I don't think I have had ANY agent say no to open houses but she did. I had never had an agent that impressed me as much as she did so I put her through one more test. We had already moved to Florida to retire so I had my son meet with her. Just as I suspected he approved also. I just felt by our conversations she would and could GET THE JOB DONE!! My husband and I have had no regrets! She has handled everything that was thrown her way like a true professional plus some. She is a beast when it comes to her job!!!! I have never met someone that has such a strong love for their work, until now. She knows her job inside and out and it really shows in everything she does. I am so very pleased and honored to call her a friend. Although we have never met, I will make it my job to come face-to-face with such a unique and wonderful human being! What else can I say but WOW. ”
Ron and Brenda Kremer, Mulberry, FL (Seller)
“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! ”
R Sexton, Tampa, FL (Seller)
“Kristin is hard working and honest, with a strong attention to detail and a lot of experience. She takes a personal interest in her clients' well being and will give good advice, even if it hurts her bottom line. I have seen her go far beyond the requirements of her job role to help me and her other clients. I recommend Kristin to anybody who needs a realtor for buying or selling. She helped me buy two houses and she is currently my seller's agent for my old house.”
Bill Steinhardt, Montclair, VA (Buyer)
“I would recommend Kristin to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. She is very knowledgeable of the rea estate market trends and always works to get her clients the best possible results when buying or selling. ”
Wally McCoy, Fairfield, CA (Seller)
“Great agent who will have your back and go to bat for you. ”
M Compton, Oakton VA (Seller)
“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. As we have mentioned, Kristin is extremely professional, ethical and dedicated to her clients. We would absolutely recommend her to our friends and family seeking to sell or purchase a home.”
Kathy and Terry Pavlak, Gainsville, VA (Seller)
“I am always trying to refer friends and associates to Kristin. She knows the market, and she is realistic about what will sell/not sell/what is a sound price, etc. And she isn't like some realtors who just talk about appearances, she knows about home systems and structure, which is WAY more important than appearance.”
Mary Kate Vasquez, Dumfries, VA (Buyer)
“Kristin Burns is an excellent agent who will fight hard for you. ”
M Compton Oakton, VA (Buyer)
“We are 100% happy with the service Kristin provided. She is knowledgeable, attentive, and organized. A totally professional experience from start to finish!”
Becky Schwarz, 15519 Barrington Pl., Dumfries, VA 22025 (Seller)
“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. ”
Ray Palmer Las Cruces New Mexico (Seller)
“Excellent experience! Great communication, honest feedback, great attitude, and could tell she was an expert in the area. Will use her again in the future! ”
Charlie Teague, Woodbridge (Seller)
“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 Burns was absolutely tremendous on every level! ”
Anonymous In Dale City (Seller)
“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. ”
Kathleen O'Connor - Gainesville VA (Buyer)
“Kristin's integrity is amazing. Her guidance to me in preparing my house for sale was spot on. She did a great job negotiating with the buyer.”
Maureen, Dumfries (Seller)
“ Kristin Burns personally cares about selling your home for the best price. I would recommend Kristin as a realtor”
Joseph Ramseur, Dumfries, Va (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)
“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!”
Mara (Buyer)
“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. ”
Debbie in Arlington (Seller)
“As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous about the entire process. Having Kristin Burns as your realtor is kind of like having a friend with you every step of the way who knows exactly what she is doing. She was professional & knowledgeable & not afraid to tell me her honest opinion (which I greatly appreciated!). She has an excellent reputation for a reason! ”
Karina Page, Montclair (Buyer)
“Kristin was very considerate in her sales plan and her projection of the market was excellent. I also appreciate her understanding of the requirements necessary in preparing the house for sale and considerations for my elderly parent's needs. The sales experience went very well and I would recommend Kristin. ”
Dan Hurley, Chesapeake (Seller)
“ To sell your house quickly and for top dollar requires only 2 steps: 1 hire an outstanding realtor 2 follow the advice of that realtor 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. ”
