“Kristin is a true professional. Whenever I had a question, she got back to me quickly. Her understanding of the local market and what was required to sell the house quickly was spot on. I would highly recommend her.”

“Kristin used her years of experience to ensure we were ready to sell. She helped us understand what we needed to do to get our house ready for market and provided a list of local trusted vendors who helped us make needed upgrades and repairs. Kristin really understood the market and put together a marketing campaign focused on an on-line presence. She brought in professionals to photograph and video our home and posted the sales information on all the major websites. This resulted in a truly exceptional online presence that, when launched, resulted in immediate interest and viewings. We had multiple offers within days. Kristin then did something I had never had another realtor do for us. She contacted the lending institutions for each offer and validated that the offers we had were truly quality offers. We met with her face-to-face and she laid out all of our offers. She expertly talked us through each item on each offer so we understood all the details. We selected the best offer for us and then Kristin actively managed the process all the way through a successful closing. Through the entire process, from our first meeting to closing, Kristin was always available to answer questions and provide sound advice. She is absolutely trustworthy and a very nice person. I highly recommend Kristin to anyone and will use her again in the future.”

“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 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)

“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)
4/14/2016
“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!”
Chris and Patti Engstrom, Dumfries, VA (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'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. ”

“Kristin Burns is very conscientious and knowledgeable. She goes above and beyond what is expected.”
Brittany Blough, Hampton (Seller)

“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!”

“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)

“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 very reliable and trustworthy. She goes above and beyond to make sure the entire process from top to bottom is comfortable, painless, and an overall positive experience. I will continue to use her and recommend her as she is so caring and genuinely wants to see her clients end up in a great home that fits their needs and comfort level. ”
Chelsey Gabrielson (Buyer)

“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.”
Debbie Potratz, Arlington (Buyer)

“ Kristin Burns personally cares about selling your home for the best price. I would recommend Kristin as a realtor”
Joseph Ramseur, Dumfries, Va (Seller)

“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.”

“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.”
Denielle Velasquez, Dumfries, VA (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. ”

“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!”
