    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 Condo home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Sixteenth Street Heights, Washington, DC.

    Kimberly really is a full service real estate agent. When we talked dollars, she told us what she thought about the market and pricing, but she also listened to what we had to say and let us make the call. We were handling most of the transaction from out of town. When we left Kimberly a message she called back, morning noon or night. When there were complications she solved them. She gave great advice to get the property ready for sale. We needed a painter, she had a painter. We needed a cleaner, she had a cleaner. They showed up when they were supposed to and did great work. She really had an eye for showing the property at its best. The house sold five days after it was listed. We were very happy.  More Less

    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $775K in American University Park, Washington, DC.

    It truly was a pleasure working with Kimberly. She always demonstrated the utmost professionalism and level-headedness. She knows our market very well and as a result was able to give us solid advice to get our house listed quickly and under contract within days of listing.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.825M in Chevy Chase, MD.

    Kimberly was a fabulous agent on both the sell and buy sides of our recent move. She is thorough, diligent, knowledgeable, responsive and clearly dedicated to representing her client fairly. She worked long hours (including nights and holiday weekends) to help us with our purchase. I strongly recommend Kimberly.  More Less
