Kimberly Cestari has been hooked on real estate since she bought her first house right after college. Since that time she has fine-tuned her eye for detail in a career as an interior designer and bought and renovated two homes in the District. And now she's sharing this plethora of hands-on talents and experiences with home buyers and sellers as an award-winning, multi-million dollar producing Realtor in Miller's Chevy Chase North office.

Couple this with her print and internet marketing background for Marriott International and Discovery Communications and Kimberly is a walking, talking house of knowledge in what it takes to prepare a home for sale or to find the right home to purchase. She knows how to make a good impression before, during and after a real estate transaction. Since moving to the metro area in 1998, Kimberly has learned a lot about what makes a house a home.

Ask Kimberly to help you make the kind of impression people won't forget, by calling her at 202-966-1400 x3340 (office), 202-253-8785 (cell) or emailing her at KimberlyC@LNF.com

Kimberly lives in Chevy Chase with her husband, two daughters and adopted dog, Chevy.TESTIMONIALS:

Working with Kimberly Cestari, you find yourself in an oasis of calm in the storm of the home-selling process. Kimberly is professional, unflappable, strategic, and unrivaled in her knowledge of the Chevy Chase market. She was always ready with whatever we needed -- usually before we knew we needed it. She offered sound guidance when we asked for input, and ensured we stayed in control of the decision-making. In the face of what can be a complicated, personal, and angst-ridden process, we found peace of mind with Kimberly's ability to guide us through to results that were better than we could have hoped for: multiple offers above asking-price within days of listing. Working with Kimberly to sell our home was the best decision we could have made. ~Janet and Allen Hodur/Leonardi ~

If you're going to spend as much time with your real estate broker as we did, you get to know them pretty well...Kimberly is creative and fun to work with as well as being incredibly honest and forthright. In addition to those qualities she is exceptionally responsive, she was available to us on weekends and evenings and was a great resource for us during both our moves. We have referred Kimberly extensively to our friends and family and will absolutely return to her should we decide to buy or sell again in the Washington DC area, I highly recommend her. ~Sarah and Archie Smart ~

We lived in our DC home for 10 years and decided to sell and relocate to another city for an employment opportunity. From the start of the selling process, Kimberly was very detailed in helping us stage the home, market it, and deal with the additional steps required by the relocation company. We appreciated her communicating with us almost daily and keeping us abreast of market changes. She helped us navigate through one of the biggest transitions a family can go through. ~Torod & Sabrina Neptune ~

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for making the home-buying experience so painless. It couldn't have been easier or more pleasant, and that's all because of you. Thanks for everything.
~Tim and Quincey Grieve~

Josh and I wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work in helping us get into our first home. From writing the offer letter in a way that elevated our offer among the other 5 that were submitted, to helping us deal with the termite situation, the phantom air conditioning units, and then of course responding to the last minute changes on the seller side so that we still get to closing on time - we honestly couldn't have done it without you. We appreciated your attention to detail & responsiveness throughout the entire process. We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know in the area looking for a real estate agent, and look forward to working with you in the future when we outgrow our new house. Thank you again!
~ Katie and Josh Wilson ~

      Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.55M in Chevy Chase, MD.
      Kimberly is very professional, knowledgeable and is a pleasure to work with. She has the utmost integrity and a very good sense of the market. She priced our house in a difficult market and was able to bring us multiple contracts. She is very responsive, as is her excellent support staff. I recommend Kimberly highly and without reservation.  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $875K in Chevy Chase, Washington, DC.
      Kimberly is the dream realtor. Over the course of a year and a half, she helped us find a home in DC. We were living out of town, making the entire process harder since we had to cram a lot of work into a few short trips to DC. Kimberly was always available to us, super patient, and never put any pressure on us to sign anything. The entire relationship was based on trust and mutual respect. She's the consummate professional.

      Once we found a house we wanted, Kimberly went to work for us with a zeal that made us feel confident. She walked us through the negotiations and her work during the inspection stage was way above and beyond the call of duty. There was not a call or e-mail that wasn't responded to within a matter of hours. We have no idea when she rests or sleeps, but we are tremendously grateful for her non-stop attentiveness.

      The other thing to note about Kimberly is that she is genuinely passionate about her neighborhood and the District as a large. She is involved in the local community and a tremendous resource as we begin our lives here. She's a friend we've come to depend on, and we can't recommend her to others highly enough.

      Sold a home in 2014.
      I found myself unexpectedly in a "for sale by owner" situation. Ms. Cestari was actually the buyers' broker, but nonetheless on numerous occasions helped me navigate the process. While I certainly knew all along that "closing the sale" was in her best interest, I still was very, very impressed how she treated me---in a kind, courteous, and professional manner, well beyond what would have been necessary for her to do.  MoreLess
