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.

“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!!”
Tom Carlson, Manassas (Seller)
“Super impressive knowledge and analysis of property and sales with demographics and market data. Only have the highest regard for Kristin Burns and her work ethics and professionalism. Response to questions was quick. Good not have been better! I don’t believe anyone could have done as well for us as she did. ”
Sharon Medlock Bristow VA (Seller)
“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. ”
Alex Rada, Stafford County, VA (Seller)
“Can't say enough about how Kristin took care of every aspect of the sale. 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. ”
Wedgie (Seller)
“ After our first meeting with Kristin Burns we felt she was the right agent to work with based on her local knowledge of the market, extended experience in real estate and great personality. These attributes continued throughout the entire process of selling our home. 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! ”
M Rodriguez, Manassas, VA (Seller)
“Kristin Burns is beyond knowledgeable and professional. She is a pleasure to work with. She answered any and all questions that we had. Kristin is such a delight to work with. ”
Jackie Pinion, Manassas (Buyer)
“We were very pleased with Kristin Burns when we sold our home in 2017 and purchased our new home in 2020. She also found a home for our son 2018. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and has an excellent understanding of current market conditions.”
Alicia, Woodbridge (Buyer)
“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. ”
Jill Cahill, Montclair, VA (Buyer)

Kristin gave me excellent advice on how to prepare the house to sell quickly and was there every step of the way to help. I highly recommend Kristin Burns. She is professional, competent and highly knowledgeable. Kristin provides clear advice based on her years of experience when selling or buying a home. She is also remains calm and gives her time to make you feel like you are her only client. Kristin's assistant, Christine, is very capable and helpful. I appreciated her help with the process. My experience with Kristin was seamless. I always felt like I was in good hands. Kristin is a top notch agent.”
Cindy Housewright, Montclair VA (Seller)
“Kristin Burns provided an unparalleled level of service to our family with our real estate needs. We were so impressed with her level of service we used her to buy our home 12 years ago, eventually sell that same home, and to sell an investment property. We could not have been more pleased with each transaction and how seamless she made the whole process. Of note, her marketing and selling of our rental property occurred with us already moved to a different part of the country - she took care of everything. You would be hard pressed to find a more experienced and knowledgeable real estate agent in the area. She made everything so easy and comfortable for us, and she got us top dollar for the homes we sold. We sincerely hope we can find an agent half as skilled as Kristin in our new state.”
Joe Williams (Seller)
“ I am so thankful that I had Kristen Burns for my agent. The way she handled selling my mother's condo showed her empathy, knowledge, experience and resilience. Kristen's marketing strategies, negotiation skills and attention to details ensured the process was a lucrative one for us. She was always available, quick to get back to me. Kristen rose above every situation and delivered the best results. She was patient with us, explaining the settlement process when circumstances warranted and set our minds at ease. The buyers agent presented several finicky issues, but with Kristen's excellent negotiation skills, knowledge and ability to handle difficult situations, she came up with acceptable solutions for all parties involved. Settlement process went well once the buyer's mortgage company finally approved the loan. We could not be happier we chose Kristen as she exceeded our every expectation. We will definitely refer Kristen to our friends, family and colleagues who need real estate assistance in the future.”
Diana Shelton, Dumfries, VA 22025 (Seller)
“Kristin was top notch. She became a trusted advisor and I trusted her judgement, confidence and competence completely in what was required to sell my home....and the result was the proof that she did what she said she could do. I Thank you Kristin and am now a walking advertisement for you. ”
Larry Hammack, Dumfries, Virginia (Seller)
“Kristin was a top notch sales agent, with a ton of experience in the realtor market. She was able to answer any question we had and address all of our concerns. Top notch sales team working with Kristin ”
Wayne Johnson, Alexandria (Seller)
“We found Kristin Burns on Angie's List and called her because she had great reviews. From the moment we began communicating with her, we knew she was the agent for us based on her clear communication, her sincerity in listening to our needs, and her knowledge of the market and the area. We couldn't have been more pleased with Kristin and how she handled our sale. We living outside the country while selling the house. We had renters who had a complex move-out situation and a serious medical procedure right as we received an offer. Kristin responded to all these challenges with patience and professionalism...they didn't phase her and she overcame each of them. Not to mention she had to deal with the challenges posed by the COVID-19 restrictions. From the our first call all the way to closing, Kristin was the ideal agent. She listened to our needs, provided us with a comprehensive market analysis, helped us price the house properly, created a masterful marketing plan, guided us through the offer process, and got the house sold in the midst of the COVID-19 health crisis. We've dealt with three other agents on past houses...Kristin was by far the best agent we've worked with. We give her our very highest recommendation.”
Brandon Wilkerson, Viera, Florida (Seller)
“Kristin is an outstanding agent! She came to our first meeting with the recent homes sales, data on pricing our house, and a timeline to get our house on the market. And she also had a great list of local contractors who she's had a good experience with for use to use. Kristin emphasized that the sooner we could get our house ready, the better because there were very few houses available in our price range, so we really pushed to get our house ready. Kristin had the photographer come on Tuesday, our house went live online on Thursday, we had 18 showings and six offers by Sunday evening! Outstanding - all thanks to Kristen's knowledge and planning. We've told our neighbors when they want to sell their house they need to call Kristin!”
Mike Otterblad (Seller)
“Kristin Burns is the best real estate agent that I have ever used through multiple home sales and purchases. She is friendly, helpful and gives excellent advice. She has been my advocate through each purchase/sale to make sure that my interests are well represented. I highly recommend her to all my friends and neighbors!”
jB Hess Woodbridge, VA (Seller)
“Kristin did a great job helping my family with the sale of my sisters home. She was knowledgeable and professional. She was very familiar with the area and knew how to price the home to sell. I highly recommend her and would use her as my realtor again! ”
Ginny, Dumfries, VA (Seller)
“Kristin listened to and met all my needs in selling my home. She held my interest at heart so that I didn’t have to worry. She is the perfect combination of a knowledgeable, talented agent, and a great person!”
Katrina Best - Woodbridge (Seller)
“Kristin was highly knowledgeable in the area we were looking and helped guide us all the way. I knew I could trust her judgement when we toured a few houses that maybe weren't quite the right ones. We waited as she advised us and found a house that is absolutely perfect for us! She was great at communicating with us and other realtors to find out the information we needed and secure the deal we got on our house. I would highly recommend her to anyone, and if we ever move, we will go back to working with her again. It was an absolute pleasure working with Kristin.”
Will, Montclair (Buyer)
“Kristen’s vast real estate experience, ability to deal with others, negotiating skills and even temperament were of a huge benefit when purchasing our new home. In addition, she was able to design a computer program specifically to our specifications that notified us immediately of any home that came on the market fitting our criteria ( in our case, within 15 mins. of our daughter). She came with us to the writing of the contract, walk thru, and settlement. As this was the fourth home we have purchased, we are experienced home buyers. My husband and I were so glad that we decided to use Kristen for the purchase of our new home. Kristen is great! We would highly recommend her to first and many time home buyers.”
Susan and Gary Clay (Buyer)
