"Kristen was amazing to work with -- she was understanding, knowledgeable, quick to respond, always available -- she walked us through each step with professionalism and grace. And made the entire experience fun! We are so happy in our new home, and cannot thank her enough for getting us here!" - Jessica and Justin
"Kristen is amazing! She communicates and responds regularly and kept her eyes open for the right house for us. She listened to our wish-list, but importantly kept track of what was most important to us as we looked...which helped us to narrow down what was truly important (in this case, a private lot). Kristen stood by us the whole time, touring dozens of homes and calming us during anxious times." - Susan and Keith
"As first time homebuyers, we were worried about finding an honest realtor who would not pressure us into buying more than we felt ready to take on. Kristen was very attentive and actively supported us in finding a home that was right for us. We always felt that we were in good hands every step of the way. We appreciated how much Kristen truly cared about us and how invested she was in the process. She listened to what we wanted and respected our financial decisions. Kristen is honest, works hard for her clients and support them in each step of the process. No question or concern was too small. We cannot imagine using anyone else!
" - Katey and Eddie
"We want to thank you so much for the wonderful result in selling our home…We really didn’t think the quality of the listing agent mattered; that all they did was put the information in the MLS and waited for buyers to show up at an open house. Our experience with you demonstrated that your professionalism, attention to detail, and a good sense of humor made the difference between selling and not selling our home…We will highly recommend you to our friends who may need a Realtor. Thank you again, you made a real difference in our lives.
" - Martha and Jack
"Kristen was the listing agent when we sold our house in North Potomac, MD. We had had a really stressful experience with our last home sale, and were a little anxious. Kristen guided us through the entire process, and her calm, confident, no-nonsense approach was invaluable, as was her experience. She explained every part of the process as we went through it, and didn’t overwhelm us with details until we needed them. She advised us on all aspects of the home sale, including when the best time to list was, how to prepare our home for sale, staging advice, and research-based pricing strategies. Not only did we have an incredible experience this time around, we had three offers! I would highly recommend Kristen for any home transaction.
" - Ruth and Paul
"Thank you so much for being the best agent on the planet! You have been so helpful on so many levels by providing great counsel and advice through some trying negotiations, as well as your willingness to take care of things like turning off the water so the pipes wouldn't freeze!
We are so appreciative of you going the extra mile." - Kelly and Marty
