“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.”

“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.

“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!”

“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 came to our initial appointment well prepared with area market conditions and various sales scenarios. We were quite impressed with her knowledge of the local real estate market and her preparation. Kristin never failed us in anything that was needed to ensure our home sold. She followed through with everything she agreed to do. We needed assistance in updating our home for sale and she directed us to the person she uses for staging. This proved to be the best advice. With the assistance of Kristin and design work from Sharon Potter with Red Chair designs, we had a home that sold in less than a week with six offers. Kristin Burns ensured that all tasks needed for closure were completed in a timely manner. She went above and beyond. We were no longer living in the area and she took care of everything! She also ensured that we got value for any expenditure and did not spend anything unnecessarily. Exemplary in every respect!”

“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. ”

“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)

“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)

“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)

“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)

“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)

“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. ”

“We were very satisfied with the process of purchasing our house using Kristin's services from the beginning to the end. Kristin was very professional, polite, knowledgeable, and very responsive. It goes without saying that the stakes of buying a house for a family are very high. Kristin gives the confidence from the start that she can do the job with the expertise that it takes to handle all the important transactions. At the end of the whole purchase process we can call Kristin a friend and would recommend her to anybody. Most of all we appreciated, her local knowledge, personable approach, relational skills and constructive guidance. A job well done!”

“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)
