Testimonials

“We called around to several Realtors before having friends recommend Kristin to us. She was extremely knowledgeable about the market, the area, and was a strong negotiator when it came time to close. Kristin was confident and calm throughout our search, and used her extensive networking capabilities to help us look at houses not yet on the market. She was always available, and perhaps most importantly very intuitive. She is the only Realtor we have ever worked with that was able to get a good handle on what it was we were looking for in a home. I highly recommend her.”


“I can’t say enough about working with Kristin during the purchase of our home. She had encyclopedic knowledge of comparable homes in our desired neighborhood and guided us successfully through a competitive offer process. Kristin made herself available at all hours on a holiday weekend, which was critical in our situation. We were also very pleased with the service providers she recommended, including our eventual mortgage broker, home inspector, and closing attorney. All were thorough, responsive, and timely. We’ve recommended her already to several friends and neighbors.”


“Kristin was invaluable in helping us from home search through closing. Her knowledge of the area, community, schools, houses and residents was nothing short of amazing. I am not sure if we would have been able to get our house if not for her.”


“Kristin was referred to us by a friend and we couldn’t have had a better experience! She has an extensive knowledge of Albemarle County, she is responsive and easy to work with and she really listened to what we were looking for. She found our home before it was even listed and got us in to see it right away. The specialists she recommended were top notch as well- lender, inspector and closing lawyer were all easy to work with, honest and efficient. Five stars for sure!”


“Kristin was a fantastic agent! She knows the area inside out as a life-long resident, and is incredibly prompt, organized, and responsive. She quickly understood what I was looking for in a home and neighborhood and steered me in the right direction, with helpful background on various builders and neighborhood expansion plans and amenities. Highly recommend.”


“Kristin is awesome. She is kind, competent, responsive, caring, bright, genuine, and effective. The buying process can be laborious, but with Kristin it was effortless and enjoyable. Not only was she very capable, but she was great company in the car and during all the showings. My wife and I felt as if we had been friends with her for some time even though we hardly knew her. We will definitely seek her help if we ever move again. This was our second time buying a house, and we were quite familiar with Charlottesville, but she had lots to add and advise- always in a friendly, helpful way. We found and closed on a house quickly, which ended up being our favorite house and also at the low end of our budget! We love our house, neighborhood, and our low house payment. Huge thank you to Kristin for all of her help and hard work!”


“Kristin knew exactly what I needed to do to sell my home, and she guided me through all the preparations to do so. As a result, my house sold, for the full asking price, in one day! Kristin’s expertise absolutely made the difference in selling my home so quickly. Her professionalism, high energy, warmth and thoughtfulness are qualities that represent Kristin. Kristin is an excellent real estate agent!”


“Having moved over 10 times, you might say, we’ve seen them all. We have had excellent realtors in various parts of the country but never a Listing Agent like Kristin. From the first introduction to the close, she conducted herself with the utmost of professionalism and exhibited a high level of expertise in all matters. During the early stage, while we evaluated our demographic area’s “top listing agents”, Kristin was prepared and presented us with the most compelling case. Her listing price recommendation came in at the mid-point of an array of agents – those who threw out a high number without data to support them and those who touted their “less-than-30 day close rate / sale-price-to-list-price ratio” and were much too low in their recommendation. Kristin’s professionally prepared marketing plan was very specific to our house and was data driven. And yet, while analytical in her approach, she also possessed a very keen sense of subjectivity when it came to recognizing some of the unique features of our home and how to highlight them in the offering.

Most of all and irrespective of all these attributes, Kristin just cares. She is an excellent Listing agent and likely would be just as well, as a Buyer’s agent. Given her “All-In” nature, we could not imagine otherwise. Kristin’s integrity and professionalism is beyond reproach and we would unequivocally recommend her as a realtor.”


“We had a great experience with Kristin when we aimed to re-list our house in Ivy, Virginia after a previous contract for sale fell through. She gave tremendously helpful advice, was responsive and proactive about preparing the house for sale, and also linked us up with subcontractors who helped spruce up the place. We would recommend her to anyone who is seeking a real estate professional. She is professional, personable, and incredibly helpful.”


“We absolutely loved working with Kristin. She is friendly, professional, extremely well-organized, proactive, and easy to work with. She knows the Charlottesville/Albemarle area extraordinarily well, understands how to successfully market a house, and is very communicative throughout the process. She is wise, knowledgeable, and generally awesome. We could not recommend her more.”


“She is absolutely the best! Her advice was “right on” and she made the horrendous job of preparing the house, enduring the onslaught of showings, and finalizing the sale and move as easy as humanly possible….and much easier than we had envisioned. She was very open and honest about the pros and cons of our home, helped to establish the maximum value (after she did a ton of research!), and proceeded to find multiple offers, all within a three week period. I recommend her every chance I get. I can’t sing her praises loud enough. I recommend her without ANY reservations.”
