“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 Burns exceeded all of our expectations. She went above and beyond to ensure that we found our perfect home. Kristin Burns is a kind person to work with and she was very attentive to our needs. She is also very knowledgeable in the real estate business down to the minute details. For these reasons, I would recommend Kristin Burns to anyone who is leery of the home buying/selling process. Kristin Burns held our hands throughout the whole process of buying our new home. We are living our dream home due to Kristin Burns valiant efforts. ”
Sheila Moran; Dumfries, VA (Buyer)
“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)
“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 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 went above and beyond with helping us finding our new home as a first time home buyers! She's very knowledgeable and patience with all of our questions! Job well done Kristin ”
Kyle and Krystel Voigt (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)
“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 Burns is a phenomenal real estate agent! She is incredibly knowledgable about the area to include individual neighborhoods and schools. ”
Jackie Pinion, Woodbridge, VA (Buyer)
“We have worked with Kristin on two real estate transactions, over 10 years apart. We were so impressed with Kristin the first time, that there was absolutely no thought to choosing anybody else the second time. Kristin is a true professional who can very quickly understand your specific needs or wants and goes out of her way to meet them. We strongly recommend Kristin and look forward to working with her again someday!”
Jill & Jack Cahill, Woodbridge, VA (Buyer)
“Thank you for helping us sell our home. Kristin was very knowledgeable of the market and priced our house accordingly. We had 2 offers in the first day and could not be more pleased! Kristin works hard for her clients and we would highly recommend her to others!”
James and Michelle, Stafford (Seller)
“Kristin Burns is an excellent agent who will fight hard for you. ”
M Compton Oakton, VA (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 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)
“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)
“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)
“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)
“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.”
Mark and Alicia Young (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)
“Kristin Burns is extremely knowledgeable with the real estate market in Dumfries. Professional, and dedicated she always made excellent recommendations, and constantly kept me in the loop on all development. Next time I sell a home in Northern Virginia I want Kristin Burns handling my real estate needs.”
Rick Nealis, Falls Church (Seller)
“Kristin was excellent and found us the perfect house. She guided us through the home buying experience alleviating any confusion and making the entire process hassle free. I will recommend Kristin to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”
Corey, Woodbridge 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!”
