"Our experience with Kate couldn’t have been have better. We were first time homebuyers on a strict timeline trying to navigate the D.C. housing market during a pandemic- not exactly a recipe for success. But Kate made us feel confident and knowledgeable throughout the process. She was always thinking several steps ahead and was prepared to guide us every step of the way. We were also very impressed with her reputation in the community- everyone we encountered was sure to tell us how wonderful Kate is to work with. We’d enthusiastically recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling!" - Rachael

"Kate helped us purchase our first home and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. She added value throughout the process, from helping us determine what neighborhoods would best suit our needs to advising on home inspectors and contract negotiations. Kate was patient and responsiveness throughout our 6+ month search!" - Bailey

"We are so thankful to our friend who referred us to Kate. At our first sit down meeting, she meticulously walked us through the home buying process in great detail, patiently answering our questions and modestly sharing her tried-and-trusted strategies. We worked on an accelerated timeline as we decided to jump on a house when we saw it. Kate was extremely helpful, resourceful, patient, and professional at every step of the way —it became clear early on that she was always thinking ahead and would explain things to us before we could even ask the question. Communication with both Kate and her staff was crystal clear and quick. As first time buyers, we knew early on that we were in excellent hands. If you have a chance to work with Kate, we’d say without a doubt: go for it!" - Jason

"As a first time home-buyer, I could not be happier with my experience with Kate. She was accommodating to the learning curve I was up against and was extremely responsive and detailed in her approach to securing the property in question. I would recommend Kate to anyone in the DMV area looking to purchase or sell, especially first-time home buyers!" - Gabriel

"As first-time homebuyers, Kate worked with us tirelessly to help us find our dream home, write the most competitive offer for it, and close on it in an extremely short amount of time. She is without a doubt the best agent you could choose to work with--and she surrounds herself with the best people in the business, from the lender we worked with to close in 18 days to the home inspector that did our pre-inspection the very next business day. Every piece of the puzzle fit seamlessly in this process, and it's because of Kate. We would not be where we are without her. the time we sat down to sign all of the documents at closing, we were comfortable, prepared, and informed of what we were signing and why it was on the table. She imparted so much knowledge to us each time we looked at a property with her. I could not recommend working with Kate more!" - Mark
