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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $750K in American University Park, Washington, DC.
We've worked with Kimberly on multiple occasions. She helped us buy our first house in DC and just helped us sell it 6 years later. We met with her on a Wednesday and had an accepted cash offer two days later. We couldn't have asked for more. We are sorry that she can't help us in New Jersey. Thank you Kimberly for everything.

Sold a home in 2014.
Kimberly represented us on both the buy-side and sell-side for our recent move within Barnaby Woods and was simply awesome. On the sell-side, we had four offers on the house within one week of listing and accepted an offer at 105% of our asking price. On the buy-side, our search took the better part of a year while we looked during a period of extremely low inventory. We considered both DC and Chevy Chase/Montgomery Country and Kimberly was equally knowledgeable and well connected in both communities. But when we found the right house, Kimberly was there for us 24/7 during negotiations and through closing. The counterparty's agent was often combative and non-communicative, but Kimberly managed the process splendidly. We are thrilled to be in our new house and couldn't imagine going through the process with anyone other than Kimberly. If you want to buy or sell a house in DC or Chevy Chase/Montgomery County, she should be your first and only choice.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Cathedral Heights, Washington, DC.
Kimberly is probably better known for single family home sales in the area. However, she was able to help with the sale of this co-op unit in Upper Northwest. Because it was a co-op (not a condo) some complexities were involved and Kimberly was able to navigate through all of it smoothly to a successful close at strong pricing. I couldn't be more pleased with her efforts.

Sold a home in 2013.
From the outset, Kimberly was on the case and was vigorous in analyzing the market, and assessing the competition and demographics. She did a thorugh review of these competing condominiums and made key suggestions as to how my unit should be presented in terms of the decore , comtemporary color schmes for the walls and trim, and the placement of plants and objects d'art that gave everything a "homy"appearance. In addition to this was the pricing tactics and estimating the sincerity or enthusiasm of the prospective buyer. It all was a well orchestrated and professional sale. My condo sold first. Kimberly is the best...knowledgable,professional, with a dynamic personality.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Chevy Chase, Washington, DC.
Kimberly is an aggressive, high energy, results oriented professional. Her experience affords her an unrivaled understanding of the area market, and allows her to develop and execute a strategy centered on maximizing equity value for the owner. My wife and I could not have been more pleased with the results Kimberly delivered on the sale of our property in Chevy Chase, DC.

Bought a home in 2013.
We weren't familiar with the area, so we knew we had a large task ahead of us. From the first meeting we had with her, Kimberly eased our anxiety and provided excellent counsel throughout the entire process. She was patient with our endless questions and couldn't have been more responsive. Her robust knowledge of upper NW DC is unmatched. She guided us through a very complicated few weeks of both selling our condo and buying our new home, all while smiling and making the stressful process fun and enjoyable. We couldn't be happier with the outcome and we highly recommend Kimberly.

Sold a home in 2013.
I am writing this review for my 85 year old mother who sold her home of 43 years in Chevy Chase, DC. After interviewing several agents we decided on Kimberly for a number of reasons. First of all, the price she wanted to go for was 50-100k higher than the other four or five agents we talked with. Secondly, her vision of what we needed to do to the house (which turned out to be perfect) and what we needed to spend ( which turned out to be minimal) was facilitated by the fact that she had all the right service contractors lined up to do the jobs wonderfully at incredible prices. Which is to say that our decision quickly paid off in watching her confident vision, instinct and hard work lead to a quick sale of our home at a price HIGHER than the asking price (which, again, was significantly higher than the other agents' suggested prices) to a wonderful family - two days after the FIRST open house! It was a home run. On a personal note, the sale of my mother's house was very emotional to her. Kimberly not only handled every business aspect of the process in a superior manner, but she was wonderfully warm and understanding to my mother during this difficult time. I was hesitant to add this, but far and away the most impressive aspect of this transaction was the fact that Kimberly lost her own beloved mother right in the middle of our work together. Although we needed this to happen as quickly as possible for a variety of financial reasons, we fully would have understood if Kimberly needed some time away (we would have waited for her). She was available to us within a day and all I can say is that, with her full listing schedule we felt like we were her only customer the whole time and with the much more serious personal issues she was dealing with, she still found the heart to help my mother through the successful sale of her house. Five stars can't expain that.

Sold a home in 2013.
Understanding the market: Our home was in Hawthorne which is a great neighborhood and a bit of a hidden gem. None of the other realtors we interviewed understood the qualities of the neighborhood. Kimberly did. In our research we discovered she had sold the three highest priced homes in the neighborhood over the previous 18 months.

Marketing: She immediately understood that our home was unusual, in that it appeared small from the street but in reality was quite large. She was the only realtor interviewed who suggested digitizing the floor plan to let buyers see the real house online.

Pricing: Kimberly understands the market and is not afraid to tell you when your expectations are unwarranted. Similarly, her straightforward logic of how to price a home and for the right buyer is brilliant and understandable.

Bottom line: House went on the market on a Thursday morning and we accepted the second bid by Thursday evening, about 12 hours!

Showed home in 2013.
Kimberly planned an extensive tour of several neighborhoods in Washington DC, Chevy Chase, and Bethesda. We found several potential candidate homes in our two-day search. We are impressed by her professionalism, willingness to help us in our search, and flexibility.
