“My wife and I were first time home buyers. We absolutely didn’t have a clue about the whole process except that we wanted a house which we can call our own. I remember when we went to meet Kathy for the first time, we had no clue where to start or what to look for in a house. Talking to her was so easy as if we were talking to a friend we knew for a long time. She guided us through the whole process, cleared up a lot of misinformation we had, explained the pros and the cons and much more. Soon enough we went on our first round of looking at the listing or as Kathy calls it – playdate. It was amazing to see how quickly she was able to read what I like and what my wife likes and what we both would love. Eventually we found the house we absolutely adored and I say this with full conviction that if it wasn’t for Kathy then we wouldn’t have been able CLOSE on our first home. She is an absolute champion of an agent who just gets it done.
She was so approachable and easily reachable during the whole process. I not only appreciate the patience she had to walk us through the entire process at our own pace but also all the guidance she provided us at each and every step. She’ll always have a special place in our heart as she made our dream to own our house a reality. Can’t thank her enough. You’re the best Kathy.

“I reached out to Kathy Colville, whom I worked with in 2006 and she found this home for me which was perfect for me at the time. She was just as friendly and accommodating then as now. I also worked with Redfin and ultimately decided that I trusted Kathy and her team more because they had multiple sales in my neighborhood (Countryside).
Kathy and team did a great job working with my tenant to schedule pictures and the 3D tour, home inspection and verifying that everything was confirmed with the buyers and seller. She is even helping me get rid of the sectional that is in the basement.
Lastly, Kathy and team got me over asking price so I think that should definitely be considered a success story!”

“Kathy Colville took the time to sit down with me and hear the rather involved back story as to why I needed to sell. She thoroughly explained what would likely happen under different scenarios and helped me understand how the system works. When I made up my mind on what I wanted to do, she acted quickly to make it happen, explaining each step we needed to take and making sure it was done properly. When I received some confusing information from my mortgage company she quickly contacted them to find out what they needed and why. She found that the company did not coordinate well internally and some of the communications I was getting from them were not appropriate to my case and I could ignore them. She continued to keep in close communication with me to advise me what was going on with the sale and to find out if I needed any assistance from her office in getting the house ready, in moving things out and in checking with the buyer's representative to see if he wanted any furniture items I was still needing to be rid of. This led to my being able to leave several pieces of furniture and storage cabinets for the new owner, who was grateful to get them. Kathy went with me to the closing signing and made sure all went as it should. And finally, she informed me that following the buyer's closing signing, I would be getting a relocation assistance check in the amount of $1500 which I was not expecting. Her office followed up on this and I did receive the check and it has helped me very much.”

“Kathy and her staff were very attentive and knowledgeable throughout the whole entire process of selling my home. I would definitely recommend her staff and Kathy, herself to anyone who is selling or buying a home! :-)”
Alex, Ranson WV (Seller)
“Kathy is an amazing agent to work with. It was a pleasure to have her as my real estate agent. She is very professional and efficient. She listens to your needs and opinions and offers her expert advice. She answered all my questions quickly and explained when I was confused. I felt a connection with Kathy the first day I met her and would definitely recommend her for any real estate needs.”
Joyce Baker, Harpers Ferry, WV (Seller)
“I have worked with Kathy Colville and her team a few times in my life. Kathy and her team have always been A+ with every step of the buying or selling process: I would recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area.”
Brian V (Seller)
“Kathy Colville is like family to us. This is our second purchase with her. Our needs are unique in that we are in full-time ministry. We've moved around a lot over the years, in and out of the area numerous times... Finance options have been critical at times due to the unique nature of how my income is calculated. I'm also a Veteran, so there are considerations there as well. Kathy goes way beyond the call of duty in getting to know you and to understand your individual needs as a buyer. Numerous times during the sale process she dropped what she was doing to accommodate us, and for that we are very grateful and appreciative. I highly recommend Kathy Colville to anyone who is seriously considering purchasing a new home. We won't use anyone else.”
The Peterson's (Buyer)

Joe Hutcheson Sterling (Seller)
“Actually sold my house. I had to change my realtor because he wasn't doing anything in the way of bringing in buyers and was planning on going on vacation for the winter. I need to sell fast and I needed someone great. I saw the signs in a neighbors yard and was amazed about how much advertising was being done for an open house and I walked in and said sign me up to Brandon Patrick who acted as my agent. He was awesome. He and Kathy gave me a sales pitch with backup proof and made me feel like they could actually sell my house in a hurry and based their estimates on their outstanding history. They were pretty close to their guess, the buyers took their time but they did it! The best!”
Will A (Seller)
“Kathy and her team helped me locate and purchase the property and they gained my confidence that they would be my best choice to handle the sale. They're professional, competent, thorough and efficient. After the sale I'm very happy that I again chose Kathy Colville and her team and firmly believe I couldn't have done better. I highly recommend them and wouldn't hesitate to use Kathy and her team again.”
Jim Slaight, Tennessee (Seller)
“We met Kathy at an open house when we were in the very beginning of our new home search. We had already spoken to two other realtors trying to find a good realtor to sell our home and buy a new one. It was immediately clear that Kathy was incredibly knowledgeable and thorough. She was very friendly and approachable. We left the open house knowing she was the realtor for us! Kathy was very motivated to sell our home and provided invaluable advise on how to stage our home and tips to sell quickly, and we did. We sold our home after only 10 days on the market! Buying and selling a home can be very exciting and stressful at the same time. Kathy and her team were incredibly patient, informative, and accessible throughout the entire process. Both Kathy and her team offered help in anyway possible but most importantly she was a true advocate for her client. I would highly recommend Kathy and her team to anyone who wants to sell their home, find their dream home, or both!”
Mary Toxey (Buyer)
“Kathy Colville is an exceptional broker. She and her staff were available to answer any questions we had almost immediately in all cases. Kathy sat down with us and we came up with a plan to sell the house in a way that would maximize the final sales price. This did mean we spent money to upgrade some aspects of the house. But this paid us back by getting us a much higher price for the house as well as decreasing the time the property sat on the market significantly. The contractor Kathy set up for us was professional and took care of any little issues that cropped up. Work was also completed on schedule and within budget. We have used Kathy to buy and sell our homes in the past and my Daughter has also purchased a home though Kathy based on my recommendation to use Kathy, That is how much I trust this lady … ”
Andreas Uiterwijk Ashburn VA (Seller)
“Kathy and I have worked together on the purchase and sale of several properties since 2007. Her knowledge of contracts and financing are the best in the business in my opinion. If you use her do not question her advice, it is always right on point.”
Sarah, Herndon (Seller)
“Kathy is terrific! I would use her and her team again for any real estate purchase or sale. She listens and finds the ideal house.”
Chris Crawford, Berryville, Va. (Buyer)
“Thanks to Kathy's foresight, creativity, and helpfulness, we were able to both sell and buy in what felt like record time. Not only did we get what we needed, but we got what we wanted -- and even more than we expected!”
Shannon, Leesburg, VA (Seller)
“Having worked with Lisa Glikbarg in the past sale/purchase of houses, we wanted to work with her again. As far as the factors that influenced our decision, we knew that Lisa ticked all the boxes (such as "sales record", "needs & requirements", "knowing the area", etc.).
Additionally, the staff was always helpful and polite.”
Claire, Vienna VA (Seller)
“Kathy Colville was fantastic. She listened to our wants and needs and she stuck to our plan. Previous realtor did not support our goals and, therefore, we went with Kathy.
Kathy offered to stage our home and offered some furniture to help the home stand out. She even assisted my wife during her off-hours to paint our basement with my wife and friends. She went the EXTRA mile to serve us.
Kathy Colville promoted and marketed the sale of our home on many databases which gave it more exposure. She and her staff conducted many open houses that also brought in potential buyers. Due to her efforts we received four offers. We only had to pick one.”
Michael McMullan, Charles Town (Buyer)
“Kathy is very knowledgeable and knows the market. She works quickly and is motivated and represents her clients very well. She is a top notch realtor and gets you results.”
Mark and Krista Purcellville VA (Seller)
“Kathy was friendly and helpful in many ways. I liked that she didn’t tell us to drop our price after a month being on the market. She came over and helped me paint my basement and even bought the paint! I really appreciated that!
I felt like she did all she could do to sell our house. She told me how to show the house so it will look it’s best by de junking and telling me to keep it really clean for the showings. The brochures she did up on our house was beautiful! She had us do an Open House every other week and provided a interior designer to come in to stage the house. She also brought furniture to fill in empty spots to help show the house off at its best.
I would recommend her to my friends and actually have with one friend.”
