About Kate

Passionate about renovation and remodeling, Ekaterina “Kate” Mikhaylova had fallen in love with real estate long before she turned it into a successful career.  With a degree in finance and a professional background in complex financial negotiation and deal-brokering, Kate is perfectly poised to offer her clients far more than the average real estate agent.  After working with clients from countries across Africa, Asia, and Europe, she appreciates diverse cultures and works well under pressure and tight deadlines.

Kate participates in local long distance running races and welcomes an invite to a 5K any day.  She enjoys cooking international dishes, working out, swimming, traveling, and learning about other cultures.  Kate is fluent in Russian, speaks Portuguese, and is learning Spanish.

Kate’s goal is to give every client high-quality service in Washington DC, Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Delaware.  A Washingtonian for over two decades, Kate owns a second home in Ocean City, MD which allows her to serve clients along the Atlantic coast in addition to her home base in DC. 

Kate is excited to bring her extensive knowledge about home renovation to make sure you get the most out of your sale or rental, and, if you are looking to buy, to find the home that fits your needs the best.

TESTIMONIALS:

★★★★★ "I had a wonderful, trouble-free experience with Kate. She came recommended by friends and they were absolutely right. Kate took care of all the aspects related to the sale and the entire process ran smoothly. She advertised the property ahead of time inside the agency and among her network, spiking the interest of potential buyers. We had several offers before the official open house and sold above asking on the day. Everything, from moving my stuff to staging, correspondence with the title company and navigating the system as an international was taken care of with great professionalism. Yes, if you are employed by an international organization in the DMV area, Kate is the person to work with!" - Inga

★★★★★ "I was selling my Foggy Bottom Washington DC apartment in a remote mode (I was in Europe), and I would highly recommend Kate. She is cheerfully (yet unobtrusively) proactive and resourceful in proposing solutions which wouldn’t have occurred to you otherwise. Ideal for an inexperienced buyer or seller. For instance, she proposed to repaint and unclutter the apartment, which paid off beautifully. She also helped to fix many minor things in the property, as well as in getting rid of tech trash (massive amount in my case). She is a trusted mentor and guide in finding relevant service providers (if needed) from the first to the last step. I have not only done a long postponed sale with a good price, I enjoyed the experience and leant quite a bit in the course of it. Again, highly recommended." - Yevgeny

★★★★★ "Kate is a wonderful real estate agent. She is very knowledgeable of the real estate market dynamics and helps her clients navigate very effectively through this super competitive environment. Kate is very pragmatic and offers very valuable insights and advice that go above and beyond the regular TORs for a real estate agent (she helped us with contacts of mortgage reps, insurance agents, contractors, gardeners and even gave us ideas and advice on home decoration). She is punctual, detail oriented, proactive and very resourceful." - Edon

★★★★★ "When we decided to put our house in NW DC on the market, a colleague had referred to Kate. She has returned our call immediately and we set up an interview. While we had given her no information besides the house address, she has come fully prepared. A year ago we went through a sales of the house in VA experience with what turned out a terrible agent, and Kate was the total opposite at every step of the way. What was a nightmare experience in selling the house in VA was quite an easy and fun process with Kate. All in all, I highly recommend Kate. Not only she is a delightful person, she will also get the best deal for your money, whether you are buying or selling it. She had been a super successful professional in her previous carrier and she has brought that attitude and professionalism into her new business of real estate." - Maria

★★★★★ "Fantastic professional service -- first to sell the house at an amazing price and with no hassle and then -- to buy a new one in a very tough market. Extremely efficient knowledgeable on a variety of important subjects and putting her knowledge to action in a non-self-imposing way: from market analytics to helping at all pre- transaction transaction and post-transaction stages. Very easy to work with and very reliable." -Leo

​​★★★★★ "Kate was very helpful and caring when organizing the sale of our townhouse. She was very attentive to detail and tried her best to understand our exact needs. She consulted with her colleagues on our specific case because our home was in unusual neighborhood that had its own specifics. She made the process of the sale very clear and took a lot of burden away from our shoulders. Recommended a reliable contractor that did great job with painting the home also a great decorator who didn't charge much but made out home look attractive to the perspective buyers. Throughout the whole process she was very professional punctual and genuinely caring. I would recommend Kate to anyone looking to sell buy or rent a property in DC metro area! Thank you Kate!" - Vee

​​★★★★★ "I first met Kate because she sold my neighbor's house. He highly recommended her as an agent. When I hired her I had tenants in my house and Kate new all of the legal documents that needed to be produced. She found a buyer for my house before it was listed because of her networking skills. Kate is smart honest professional and knowledgeable. She was with me every step of the way no matter how often I contacted her. We have become friends. I highly recommend using her as your agent." - Vera 

 ★★★★★ "Kate helped me to sell my DC coop. A lot of work went into getting my place ready for sale. Kate worked as hard on my little co-op apartment as she would for a million dollar property. She guided me through the extensive renovations and relieving me of the hassle of being a landlord. My life is so much simpler now!" - Esther

★★★★★ "I had the opportunity to work with Kate over the summer when she put on the market my unit. The experience was great: Kate went out of her way to have the property ready was always available and made the process as smooth as possible. I would definitely recommend Kate to anyone selling or renting out a property. Thanks again!!" -Andrea
