Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Chevy Chase, Washington, DC.

Kimberly and her team were amazing. Their recommended plan to prep our house and optimize its potential for sale was professional and comprehensive. No matter the circumstance, Kimberly will successfully deliver for you too.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.175M in Bethesda, MD.

We have just moved into our dream house in Bethesda, MD. As a British family who have never bought a property in the US before we relied heavily on Kimberly throughout the whole process and she did not disappoint. We were never less than 100% confident in her skills, even negotiating an extra discount / credit after our inspection. Her manner was always professional and efficient but with a sense of humor and light touch we greatly appreciated. We would highly recommend Kimberly to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $875K in Chevy Chase, Washington, DC.

We initially found Kimberly after seeing her face on many of the for sale signs around our neighborhood in Chevy Chase where we were renters. When the time came to start our house hunt, we reached out to Kimberly to help us find a home within our price range in the neighborhood. She was incredibly responsive, proactive and knowledgeable. Without her, we are quite sure that our deal would not have gone nearly as smoothly as it did and we are so thankful for her efforts. We got a really great home at a good price in our desired neighborhood. Kimberly has a deep knowledge of upper northwest neighborhoods, but I'd recommend her for any home search in the region, as she knows the system and will make it work to your advantage.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.05M in Chevy Chase, Washington, DC.

Kimberly made the process of fixing up, listing and selling our house unbelievably smooth and easy. We got a good price for our house in the middle of the winter. She was clear, realistic and high-energy. And at the same time, made us feel heard and taken care of.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $875K in American University Park, Washington, DC.

We cannot recommend Kimberly highly enough. She helped us sell a home in AU Park and buy a home in Chevy Chase, DC. She was professional, effective, and always there when we needed her. On the sale side, when our first buyers backed out without giving a reason, Kimberly didn't miss a beat. Thanks to Kimberly's tireless work, we had a new offer within 3 days that was not only above our list price, but above our first contract price. On the buy side, Kimberly helped us successfully navigate a very tough sellers' market. She never rushed us and always looked out for our best interests, even if it meant more work for her. Throughout the entire process, we were grateful for Kimberly's creative ideas, sound judgment, and excellent local connections and knowledge.

I was very pleased with her professionalism and knowledge of the industry. She did an excellent job in the manner in which she staged and listed my property and within 2 days we had an outstanding offer; which closed without incident 30 days later. very happy with the results.

Sold a home in 2014.

Kimberly got us a great price without an open house. She was very professional, helped us clean up our house for sale, and made sure the process went smoothly.

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.
