Testimonials

Kate was a great advocate to have while finding a home in a difficult market. She was always very upbeat and positive, and helped us find a great home in the school district we were looking for. We are so grateful she was able to help us with this experience. Kate was always a pleasure to deal with and made herself available to us anytime we needed.

Stephanie, Oakton, VA
We were very nervous about purchasing a home in the Northern Virginia area. Working with Kate Christofides made the whol e process, from start to finish, very easy. She was available and made the time to answer all of our questions. She always responded to our calls, texts, or emails either immediately or shortly after. She linked us with all of the people needed to finalize the sale. She was able to give us good feedback on the value of our potential purchase, as well as trying to have it suit our family’s needs. Moreover, She was able to secure a wonderful purchase price. Which made us even more confident in her. As a military family, she was a recommendation from another military family, and we will recommend her to our friends and family. She is simply the best.

Kate Christofides is one of the most professional realtors we have ever worked with. She went above and beyond for us ev ery step of the way. Because we lived in Texas, Kate saved us hundreds of dollars on airline tickets by taking care of so much on our behalf. When we did fly into Maryland, she personally picked us up from the airport and drove us around the area to help get familiarized with everything before meeting with our builder about the house. The building process was a breeze thanks to her. Every request we had, she took care of it and we can’t thank her enough!!! Kate is one of a kind We really appreciate her!

As a first time home buyer, I felt as if I was in perfect hands. I feel like Kate could sense when I was unsure of what something meant or what I could do, and give me examples and explanations that helped give me enough information to make my own informed decision. She was very nice and was available at all times whenever I needed her. If I ever buy a house in the area again, I would without a doubt look for Kate to be my realtor.

She was very personable. From the first phone call I knew she was it. Other realtoras that had contacted me decided to j ust text message and send multiple, unhelpful emails before calling and introducing themselves. The fact that its the first thing that Kate did, made me what to work with her more.

Kate has helped other family members in the past and she is a complete professional who is smart and intellectual to un derstand what exactly the clients maybe looking for. Kate is the best agent possible. She assessed our busy lifestyle and stayed up to Mark with all closing needs. She was there to guide us throughout the process and always available, be it a text or call late night or be it a showing over the weekend. She rocks Kate’s professionalism made the difference and definitely the deal. She is a truthful and knowledgeable realtor and we are already in process of selecting another home with her help. I can’t imagine going to another realtor at all.

I was a first time home buyer and Kate took me completely through the process from start to finish. She was always avai lable to take my questions and was extremely knowledgeable about the local market. She got me a great deal on exactly the house I was looking for and I would recommend her 100%!

Mike B, Elkridge, MD
Kate is amazing and the best real estate agent I have worked with in the last 12 years!! I have purchased three times, i n different states, but working with her made me feel at ease. After several military moves across the country, I decided to settle down and buy a home in MD in 2014 when I started working at JBA. Fortunately, she was also up for the challenge when I had to sell it due to unforeseen circumstances in 2017/2018. She has always made herself available to thoroughly discuss what is needed for a smooth transaction. She has a tremendous amount of industry knowledge and if she comes across something she doesn’t know, she finds out and responds FAST. The selling process took longer than anyone expected, at no fault of her own, and it was under contract in a matter of days!! Kate made sure I was kept in the loop and understood each step in the process. Not to mention the fact that she invested a lot of her time, even during the holidays, to ensure we had the best chance possible of selling during the winter months. Kate has a heart of gold and truly cares about her client’s needs and desires when it comes to buying or selling your home.

I've known Kate since 2002. She's been one of a handful dear friends of mine. Of those friends, I'd say very few of them I'd trust with my life. One of them—just one—I'd trust with finding, securing, and brokering my house. Just to be clear, I'm talking about Kate! In all seriousness, I went into this transaction about as dumb as one can be. I placed all trust in Kate's judgement for all aspects, from knowing exactly what areas we wanted to look for (i.e. listening to our needs) to how to craft the very best offer and through the entire process. She's even going to help me move! (She doesn't know that yet... and don't count on that for you!) In another way to put it, the first offer we put on a house—in one of the most competitive areas in the DC area—we won. This was because of Kate.

Kate Christofides always made herself available to us during the house hunting process. Being from out of state, we woul d arrive with little notice and Kate was always there to help us. Her knowledge of the local area and schools was invaluable.
Review by
Chris Thomas, Vienna, VA
Kate is one of the best realtors we have worked with. She is friendly, responsive, and knowledgeable. Being a long-dista nce client, Kate assisted us in finding our home after our first offer fell through. She toured four additional houses for us and walked us through the inspection via video chat. We were able to close on a house in less than a month largely due to Kate - she didn't let a single thing slip through the cracks. We would definitely recommend her, and will use her again for future transactions.

Jerome Lovato, Rockville
We were referred to Kate by my husband's colleague who used her during their home buying experience. After sitting down and meeting with her, we felt very confident we would be taken care of very well, and we didn't feel as though we needed to seek out another broker or real estate company. Kate was an incredibly professional, friendly realtor with whom we had a good working relationship. She is excellent at communication, ensuring all our questions and concerns were dealt with in a prompt manner. We have absolutely no negative feedback regarding our experience with her - our home buying experience was A+ from start to finish!

Review by
Kenny Robinson, Falls Church, VA
Kate is quite the example of excellent customer service with a highly personable approach and an incredible amount of lo cal knowledge. Not only was Kate extremely responsive, accommodating, and knowledgeable, she was able to find me a home in a matter of weeks allowing me to close escrow by the time my lease ended. She was a joy to work with and very experienced about the whole process. She was able to explain everything in a way that put my mind, as first time home buyers, at ease. She was always available, day or night, and really went above and beyond in terms of helping me each step of the way. I would definitely recommend her!

Kate kept us on track and was extremely knowledgeable of every step of the home buying process. She answered all of our questions in a very timely manner and guided us through the process. Could not have asked for a better person to guide us in our first home buying experience. Kate was referred by a coworker based on their positive experiences. During our first conversation she was really engaged in identifying our needs and desires for our first home. She was extremely personable and understood the important factors for our family. She knew what to ask and proved she was experienced which was important. I plan on recommending Kate to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home. I could not have asked for a better person to guide me through my purchase. Kate knew every step and made buying a home easier. We always felt Kate had our best interests in mind when giving us advice and information.

Sergio, Severna Park
Worth stating over again (x3) -- Kate is/was simply phenomenal in all aspects of our sale -- professional, knowledgeable , quick to reply and answer questions, and on and on I could go. It's also worth noting she's one heck of a negotiator and always, always had our best interests in mind. More importantly, she's one of the nicest persons around. I would strongly recommend Kate to anyone, for any real estate need, period!

Kate was Awesome
Review by
Bill, Stafford, VA
Kate was an invaluable teammate during our home buying experience. As a military family with kids there are two big conc erns during every move; that is balancing quality childcare/schools and finding the right place to call home within our price-point. Kate's knowledge of the local communities were very helpful. I flew out to the D.C. area to look for home and she showed coordinated for several showings (>15) on Saturday so I could fly out on Sunday. Kate was very organized and provided personal attention to help us find the right home without any added pressure. After finding the right home, Kate was instrumental in keeping us informed on issues, documentation and the timing of the multiple service inspections and vendor repairs for an track closing. Kate's experience, energetic charm, no nonsense negotiating skills and quality communication skills were also extremely useful since much of the process was conducted from several states away. Kate was the right fit for our home buying experience and we would highly recommend her to anyone especially our inbound military friends and family.

Scott and Melissa
My husband and I highly recommend Kate Christofides! We selected Kate from PCSGrades.com for her outstanding reviews. K ate was very helpful and willing to go all out to make sure we got what we needed. She freed up her entire weekend to accommodate us, and showed us more than 20 houses in a single day to meet our limited time in the area to select a home. Kate was extremely communicative during the entire process, often calling during our lengthy Military Transfer process just to see how we were doing. She showed interest in the sale of our home across the country, as well as our children and general well being. She was extremely professional and timely throughout the process. We will be looking Kate up again when it is time to sell the house for the next transfer.

Kate, Kurt and I are so glad we went with you. Not only are you an amazing listing agent, you are an amazing person. W e are so glad we met you and got to know you in such a short time.

We were looking for a house with land. We got the pleasure to meet Kate through a friend and right off the bat she was s howing us houses and helping us out. After searching for houses and found the house we loved, Kate jumped right in and started negotiating the price to where we needed it. She is a fighter for her customers and was so nice and very very helpful throughout the entire process. She has the knowledge and is always a phone call away to help out anyway she can. We are so glad we had the pleasure of working with her and finding our perfect home.

I can offer no higher praise than to say I will recommend Kate Christofides to anyone I know needing an agent. We felt c ompletely confident in her abilities, and appreciated her honest advisement. Kate has been more than just a real estate agent; she has been a dearly valued friend and partner.

Mike Landefeld, Springfield, VA
Kate Christofides was very professional, had a great understanding of what we were looking for, and her communication wa s very exceptional. We have already recommended Kate to several friends in the area. In my family's perspective, she really went above and beyond and we will be extremely comfortable with working with her in the future. As first-time home buyers, she broke things down for us at a level that we'd understand what was going on through every step of the process.

Valdez Family - Columbia, MD
Kate Christofides.....is a wonderful person and determined to make her clients happy! From the first meeting with Kate, she made my family and I feel very welcomed. Kate was like a long time friend, part of the family - Kate was very nice and easy to talk too from day 1. Kate is GREAT, WONDERFUL, FANTASTIC....I have nothing but nice things to say about Kate and I'm always trying to refer people. Kate was a BIG help, I continuously told her how much I appreciated her - helping me find my home for a good price (and the good insights - mortgage payments, decor shopping).

Sharita Smith, MD
Kate was referred to me by a friend and she did a great job helping me find a home! She was available evenings and week ends to work around my schedule and was always available to take my calls. We found the perfect house within a week and closed in a month! I would highly recommend her to my friends looking to buy a home!
Review by
Mary Edmonds, Springfield
Overall, our experience has been great. We became close with Kate and her family during the months leading up to the sal e of our property and we will truly miss being around them, as our original plan was to stay in the DC area until my employment was moved to a different state. As a buyers agent, Kate tirelessly researched properties that would fit our tastes in the DC area and took us around on several occasions to view them. As a sellers agent, she was very assertive from the beginning when we told her that we wanted to list our condo for sale. She immediately began helping us prepare for the sale by running comps in the area and compiling all necessary information to list our property. The collateral she produced for our fliers were spectacular and the coordination and communication throughout the selling process was stellar. She expertly negotiated a highly favorable contract for the sale of our condo which ended up being the most expensive property to be sold in the community at that time. We have already recommended her to friends and family who are also or are thinking of getting in the market. If we were staying in the area we would use her as our buyer agent as well, but since we are moving out of state Kate took the extra step to coordinate and interview several buyer agents for us to find the perfect one that would help us meet our desires in a new home. She knows what she's doing and she's great at what she does!
