Testimonials

“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! ”

“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!”

“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.”

“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!”

“OUTSTANDING -- 8 stars out of 5 possible!!! Kristin is personable, professional, follows-up, and follows through everytime! She went far beyond my expectations in assisting my in preparing my home to be sold, staging my home professionally, listing the home and showing the home. Here Comparative Mortgage Analyis (CMA) was "spot on" for the market and pricing! Additionally, she's been completely on top of all the paperwork and requirements through escrow and closing. I've sold many homes, and Kristin (and her team) are the BEST real-estate team I've ever used. I can't say enough, other than IF YOU DON'T HIRE KRISTIN, YOU'RE SELLING YOURSELF SHORT!!! ”

“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. ”

“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. ”

“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 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. ”

“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. ”

“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.”

“ 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. ”

“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! ”

“We had not met nor heard Kristin before we found her on Angie's List. When we met with her she was knowledgeable and was willing to tell us the truth about what we could expect from her and the market. The house sold in less than 5 days -- and we had 2 offers. We sincerely enjoyed our association with Kristin.”

“Kristin helped us with our home remodeling and painting as we prepared our home for sale. Her expertise helped to present the home at its best and therefore got us the best price. She was always professional and well acquainted with the industry and market and always made us feel like we were her most important clients.”

“I had purchased my home with Kristin 7 years ago. She handled the human aspect from every angle, size, how much we had to do renos, the fact that we were a growing family, and potential resale or rental in the future. I have had experiences with other brokers and agents on both ends of the purchase and sale and Kristin is without a doubt the best agent I have ever worked with. That being said, it was a natural choice to come back to her for the sale of my home. She walked me through the process and did an excellent job and delivered everything she promised! Everything about Kristin on a personal and professional level is top tier. I fear I may have been spoiled with a home sale process that took 6 weeks and had the house on the market for 2 days before it was under contract and less than 30 days to close”
