Integrity and professionalism are the distinguishing features of Kimberly Cestari. She handled all of our recent transactions (3 in the past 5 years) - it is always a pleasure working with her.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $875K in Saint Michaels, MD.
Kimberly was always available when I needed her, and helped me negotiate some difficult situations while trying to sell my parents house. She was always honest and forthcoming with her suggestions, which was greatly appreciated. She helped me to get a good price from the buyer. After being on the market for 2 years with another listing agent, she took over, after my request, and had a buyer within 4 months.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.2M in American University Park, Washington, DC.
Kimberly was great. From the start, she was attentive to our questions and our needs. She went with us on multiple home visits and open houses. She gave us her honest opinion on locations and prices. She also helped us stage, list, and sell our condo in less than a week for over asking price!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.25M in Chevy Chase, Washington, DC.
Kimberly was so wonderful to work with. She was knowledgeable about the local/regional real estate market and helped us price our home right. We initially had another agent help us sell our house last fall without success and then withdrew it from the market. After reviewing the credentials of multiple brokers we found Kimberly. She helped us time when to put the house on the market and how much to put it out for. The house sold immediately after the first open house with multiple offers. In addition to making the sell and working with us through the "under contract" period she was professional, friendly, reliable, and efficient. As busy professionals ourselves we appreciated how she facilitated the entire process of selling our house, including recommendations of how to prep the house for a sale. I do believe that her incredible knowledge of the DC/Chevy Chase area made the difference in our house being sold so quickly after it was relisted on the market. We recommend her highly.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $1.15M in Woodley Park, Washington, DC.
Kimberly helped me prepare my house for sale, including managing the process of emptying the house of furniture, things and many papers and personal collections. She advised and managed the process of upgrading the house, without major effort on my part. She managed effectively the process of making the house available privately, without even an open house -- and helped effectively during the contract negotiations process. I relied on her considerably, and was pleased at the outcome. Equally importantly, she was never difficult to get along with, nor did she make the process unpleasant or unbearable.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $1.0M in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC.
Kimberley was wonderful at getting our place sold. The marketing materials were wonderful. We had 6 offers all over asking in a matter of 6 days.
She was also wondering in helping us find a home. We had been trying over two years and she finally got us into the neighborhood we wanted and pushed the purchase over the finish line.
We would highly recommend her.

Kimberly was exceptional. I would recommend her to all thinking about buying and selling. She's a top agent for a reason. We felt as if we were her only client given how quickly she would reply to all our questions. Hopefully you get the opportunity to work with her.

Kimberly was a true treasure to work with on selling our home. She sold it within days of signing her as our agent, and before we ever even listed it. She put her vision to reality and got us exactly the price and timing we wanted. She was knowledgeable about the neighborhood and current market. We can't say enough great things about her. If you want to buy or sell in Chevy Chase, DC- you should use her!
Sold a Single Family 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.
