Testimonials

"Katie has been my realtor through one home sale and two home purchases. I wouldn’t use anyone but Katie. In my most recent home purchase this spring - in a ridiculously competitive market - she made herself available as soon as anything I wanted to see hit the market, she advised me properly on how to make an offer, she coordinated urgent pre-offer inspections, walked through inspections with me and pointed out things to be aware of I may have missed otherwise. She held my hand through the entire process and made a daunting and scary situation manageable and doable. Months later Katie still responds immediately to my requests for referrals for service people. She’s just incredible!!!" - Melissa, Arlington

"Katie Loughney is truly the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She found us a house within our price range in a seller’s market when virtually nothing was coming on the market. She sold our condo to a buyer that offered to sign a contract “sight unseen” before it hit the market. Her advice was spot on and she knew exactly what the right selling price was and how to negotiate the best price for our purchase. She was in constant communication with us and responded quickly and patiently to all our questions. Katie seems to have very good relationships with her peers, which we’re sure was helpful in negotiations. We were out of the country in the middle of the sale of our condo and she made sure everything went smoothly, which lifted a big weight off of our shoulders. Even after the sale and purchase, we have kept in touch and Katie has helped us with referrals for work in our new house. She truly cares about her clients and we are so appreciative of everything she’s done for us. We very highly recommend Katie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!" - Gustavo & Jill, Arlington

★★★★★
"Katie and her team are true professionals. Her calm and caring manner is just what I needed as I downsized from my home of 38 years to a two bedroom condo. With her excellent knowledge of the housing market, she guided me through every step from getting the house ready to sell, setting the right price and advising on financing. She patiently answered every question and never pressured me to make a decision. When looking a condo, she quickly assessed what I wanted and only presented me with the right options. I found exactly what I wanted the condo I purchased. Katie and her team are the BEST! " -Antoinette, Alexandria

★★★★★
"Katie was absolutely wonderful to work with during our search and purchase of our first home. She was responsive, patient, and kind throughout the entire 5-month process. We confidently put our trust in her and never felt pressured in any way. Her wisdom, knowledge, and determination were invaluable as we navigated the competitive market of Northern VA. I can’t recommend her highly enough!" - Stephanie & Matt, Falls Church

★★★★★
"I highly recommend Katie. She was extremely professional, and a very calming presence during the hectic home buying process. She always made herself available to attend showings and provided helpful information. I already referred Katie to friends and she was able to help them quickly find a great home as well." - Michael, Annandale

★★★★★
"If there was an option for an A+ rating we would have selected that instead of just "A." Katie was such a delight to work with. We didn't know what to expect, not having purchased/ a house 25 years, but Katie made this process so easy, transparent, and successful! Questions were answered promptly and thoroughly, the process was laid out advance and updates were timely, and best of all Katie, and her assistant Liz, were upbeat, positive, and great to work with. You won't go wrong working with them!" - Nanci & Bryan, Alexandria

★★★★★
"Katie is a consummate professional and my spouse and I had the good fortune of being referred to her through a friend. Three attributes in particular make Katie an exceptional real estate agent: she always kept our best interests in mind, which means that she never pressured us and took took her role as an impartial advisor very seriously; she was exceptionally responsive on all matters large and small, even going so far as to arrange for a member of her team to show us a new listing in very short order during her brief absence; and her calm and unflappable demeanor is downright refreshing. Stop searching and choose Katie Loughney. You'll be working with the very best in the business." - Brad & Miguel, Arlington

★★★★★

★★★★★
"Katie and her team were an absolute delight; the quality of their work is outstanding. Katie is truly a knowledgeable professional --- and a quiet force. She comes prepared, she provides thorough and informed answers to all of your questions, and really aims her professional advice on what is best for YOU -- not in getting the deal, like we have experienced with other realtors. We first saw Katie selling the house across our street. It was remarkable the amount of effort she and her team put into getting the house ready. It less than five days. Soon thereafter, we decided to start working with a new realtor (we had been working with our previous one years) -- having seen the standard that Katie set her clients' first-hand. We interviewed five different realtors before we made an informed decision to work with Katie. Here's why -- each of the other realtor's showed up and gave us lip service. They claimed they would find us the perfect house and sell ours at the perfectly high price. Why? Because. Trust them, they said. See, but here's where Katie was different. She showed up with spreadsheets, market analysis, sample marketing material, and an entire presentation designed around the of our unique property. Who knows how long it took her to make, but the work she did earning her MBA became apparent then. We weren't in a rush; in fact, we wanted to take it slow and make the right decision, which is difficult in this market. We looked at a few homes, and she took notes. Yes, literally, she took notes. Then she started pulling listings that she'd though we'd like -- and we told her what we liked and didn't about each listing. She listened, like really really listened. We then saw some more properties, and wham... she found one that was coming on the market in a couple of weeks. She reached out to the selling agent and was able to get us into the house to view, pre-market. She took us back time and time again that week, as we made our informed decision. We brought in contractor after contractor, literally spending countless hours there, to see if we could add the addition that we wanted. Thankfully we could and went forward with the . The purchase of our new home went off without a hitch -- thanks to Katie. And, the of our old house was so quick and easy, it is surreal that it even happened. Again, it was pre-market at an above-market price -- and again, Katie acted in our best interest, not hers. Potential buyers and sellers, I can not recommend Katie and her team highly enough. She really has set the bar at a whole new level residential real estate this market. We will gladly work with her again." - Carrie & Charlie, Arlington

★★★★★
"My fiancé and I just closed on our first house and went with Katie at a recommendation from a family friend and we couldn't be more satisfied with our decision. From walking us through the entire process step by step to helping us navigate the feeding frenzy of the current market, Katie's experience and professionalism helped us secure a beautiful home. Katie showed us dozens of homes and helped us put together several offers before one was finally accepted. Her good humor and near constant availability for after-hours questions, contract writing, and last-minute showings were crucial in making the whole home-buying process as painless as it could be at a time when buying a home can be extremely stressful. Additionally, a variety of thoughtful personal touches made it clear why she's one of the most awarded realtors in the region. We would wholeheartedly recommend Katie (and her excellent team!) to anyone looking to purchase a home in the DMV area. " -Chris & Ariel, Annandale
