Testimonials

We consider ourselves blessed to have found Kathryn to represent us for the sale of our townhouse. We weren't sure at first if we wanted to rent or sell, and she spent a good deal of time with us at first discussing both options, including specific numbers for each scenario to help us make an informed decision. From day one, it was clear that she had our best interests in mind--unlike some of the other agents we've met, who are simply looking for a quick and lucrative sale. Simply put, Kathryn earned our trust off the bat, and that made the entire process much less stressful. Once we decided to sell, she offered expert advice on how to prepare the home to increase its value. She said she would do some "simple staging" with a few "things she had on hand." So add modesty to Kathryn's list of qualities; the house was transformed into a place I wished I had been living in sooner! We had to move up our timeline significantly after finding our current house in Florida, and Kathryn had no problem keeping up. She took photos herself, and they were clearly professional quality. After the listing went live, she coordinated viewings and an open house. A day later, she came over with an extremely well-organized spreadsheet summarizing the ten offers we had received in two days (!) and walked us through each one, explaining the relative strengths and weaknesses. She also made many specific suggestions on how to respond to the buyer agents to elicit an even better offer. We ended up selling at $20K over our listing price with optimal conditions in the contract. Kathryn's attention to detail, knowledge, and friendly, positive attitude make her an excellent choice for an agent. The only room for improvement would be for her to get a license in Florida, so that she could represent us if we ever need to sell again!

I enthusiastically recommend Kathryn Horner. When I made the decision to sell my first home, it was bittersweet and overwhelming as I was planning a wedding at the same time. However, choosing Kathryn was the smartest decision I made. She met with me and my contractor to provide suggestions on what repairs and updates would have the biggest impact on showing the strengths of my home. I followed all of her recommendations and was blown away by the resulting photos following the detailed and tasteful staging, which made my home shine. Every step of the way there was clear and responsive communication. The pre-marketing efforts generated a lot of buzz and interest in my home prior to listing. Once active, Kathryn coordinated many viewings and held an open house while I was out of town. When I returned from my trip, after just one weekend I had 6 strong offers and even more coming. In the end, I was able to accept an offer that was $22k over listing price! I had tears of joy at that news! If the idea of selling or buying a home sounds daunting or overwhelming, I strongly recommend you reach out to Kathryn as she is fantastic at what she does and will make the process easier than you could imagine.

Kathryn made our buying experience in Old Town Alexandria a true pleasure. At the first showing, Kathryn was unobtrusive, while also being available to answer questions. When we asked for a second look, she accommodated our schedule and made sure to have answers to the few questions we had. She helped us make a solid offer and negotiated a quick back and forth to secure our house in this very hot market. When I became frustrated with my lender, Kathryn suggested a local lender who was equally as helpful and knowledgable as she was. The closing agents Kathryn suggested were also high quality and had everything prepared on time. We were all able to work together to close in just under 30 days, which was amazing. I have previously purchased and sold three other properties over the years and this particular purchase process was far and away the easiest. Painless all the way around! They say purchasing a home is one of the most stressful events in a person's life and I honestly believe that Kathryn's knowledge, organization, connections, and approach took all the stress and guesswork out of it. I highly recommend her and will absolutely call her first if we ever need real estate services again.

Kathryn was absolutely wonderful to work with - I was in a unique situation of having to quickly find a place from out of state for a career change, and she jumped through hoops to move the application and approval process very quickly and act as a go-between for myself and the property owner. She is a great communicator, very professional and knowledgeable, and went out of her way to research and answer the many questions I had. I would highly recommend working with Kathryn for any real estate needs - I know I’ll be calling her when I’m ready to buy!
