Kathryn helped my partner and I buy our beautiful waterfront vacation property. This is the third house I’ve purchased and the third realtor I’ve dealt with and I could not be more impressed with Kathryn. Not only is she knowledgeable of the area and all the nuances of buying a river front property but she has the business skills and forethought to guide and protect you both financially and emotionally. :-) I would highly recommend Kathryn!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Hague, VA.

We recently purchased a new home and couldn't me more pleased with our experience working with Kathryn Murray. From the day we met Kathryn, I knew she would be my realtor. She was the most courteous, professional and knowledgeable of anyone we found representing the Northern Neck of Virginia. After just two visits with Kathryn, she knew us both very well and took the time to invest in what we liked and what would meet our joint needs which was not always aligned! For anyone not currently residing in the Norther Neck, Kathryn proved extremely knowledgable of the community and the local resources. She went above my expectations in regards to helping find the right resources to assist us in all aspects of our home buying experience. Look no further, Kathryn is the best!

Showed home in 2015 in Browns Store, Heathsville, VA 22473.

Kathryn takes to time to understand what you are looking for, she doesn't just parade you around to houses. She does her research, accommodates schedules does not push the sales. An excellent home buying experience. Thanks.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Hague, VA.

Kathryn is extremely knowledgeable about the area in which my sister in law's vacation home was located. During the listing period, Kathryn took care of many things such as arranging to have the water turned off, repairs made and exterior maintenance as we are located several hours away. Kathryn was always prompt in her replies and updating us on activity at the house. Kathryn is a true professional and was magnificent in handling the sale of the home. I recommend her highly.

Kathryn did an excellent job selling my land during a time when land was not selling, she did an analysis to help me decide a price. I would use her service again

Bought a home in 2014 in Westmoreland, Kinsale, VA 22488.

In the Spring of this year, I became interested in buying a modestly priced lot with a nice view of the Potomac River in Kinsale, Virginia. But, the first problem I faced was that I had little knowledge of the local area other than the fact that it is a beautiful rural place.

Knowing that we needed professional help in our search we contacted Kathyrn Murray because of her consistent 5 star ratings on Zillow. As it turned out, this was one of the best decisions we've made in quite some time.

Kathryn was thoroughly professional, energetic, experienced and extremely well qualified as a real estate agent and expert in the local area. Se knew which neighborhoods would or would not meet our needs and she respected the fact that we were pursuing a dream with a limited budget. But, in spite of that she found a beautiful lightly treed lot with a great river view at a modest price.

That said, we were intimidated by the risks and the buying process, because the lot owner didn't know if a water hookup was available or not. Nor did he know if the lot was big enough to build on or if a septic permit could be acquired. A negative answer on any of these three key parameters would have been an immediate showstopper.

Kathryn immediately went to work and did a substantial amount of research on our behalf. She quickly found out that we could indeed get the water hookup, septic permit and actually build on the lots small footprint. It was her effort and initiative that made this deal work for us. We simply could not have successfully bought this lot without Kathryn's efforts. She did the homework, reduced our risks and made a nearly impossible deal work. She did so for a very small commission, and with utmost professionalism. We are indebted to her for her efforts on our behalf.

Kathryn Murray did a tough job and did it well. If you are seeking a real estate professional in this area, she is the best of the best.

Bought a home in 2013 in Bundick, Lottsburg, VA 22511.

Kathryn was a delight to work with. She was always there - not trying to sell me a house - but to find one that fits my needs. She went out of her way to see that all went smoothly - at times at her expense. If you are looking in Northern Neck for property - I recommend you look her up.

Bought a home in 2014 in Browns Store, Heathsville, VA 22473.

My wife and I had began looking for properties over a year ago. We started to check into different areas to see where we wanted to move depending on cost of living and school systems. We decided that the Northern Neck was the area we wanted to move to after looking around for a bit. We started working with Kathryn Murray as our realtor to try and find home in Northumberland or Richmond county. She was very knowledgeable about the area. We looked for land lots to begin with. After looking at several land lots we decided that we would get more for our money if we went with a home that was already built. Kathryn was very patient with us and very helpful. As we were first time home buyers there was a lot that we did not know. Once we had found the home that we wanted Kathryn continued to stay by our side. She even went to closing with us to make sure that everything went ok and that we understood everything that we needed to know. Kathryn is one of those rare people who uses her job to help people and is not just in it for the money. She has even called to check on use after we had moved into our home to make sure that everything was going ok. I would recommend Kathryn to anyone looking to buy a home or land. Thank you Kathryn for everything that you have done for our family.

Bought a home in 2013 in Brook Vale, Lancaster, VA 22503.

I first contacted Kathryn by email to ask a question about one of her listings. At the time I was a Maryland resident looking for a property in Virginia and I really had no urgency to find something. When she responded, not only did she provide me with all the details I wanted, but she also let me know that she would give me plenty of space and time to contact her if and when I wanted or needed to. Well, that clinched it for me. I liked her style and I told her so! And thus began our search.

Although it took me a while to get moving, when I finally got in gear I realized how invaluable and important her advice was. She has an appraiser's eye; she really gets into a property pointing out details (problems and solutions); she knows the area inside and out; and, she's got contacts to help with just about any possible issue. She's truly a wealth of information. She's also fun!

While we collaborated in finding properties, I have to say that Kathryn went the extra mile to find out what I wanted. It really got to the point that I could rely on any of her suggested showings to be generally on the mark. When I finally decided to buy a particular property, I relied on her help to get things done. Because I was in Maryland (and about three hours away), I can't tell you how grateful I was to have Kathryn there to point me in the right direction, and in more than a few situations, I was lucky to have Kathryn take charge. She helped pull together a team to get things done.

I have been really pleased with all of Kathryn's help in finding a new home. She's always been available, ready to roll! She's got a wealth of knowledge about the area. She knows how to get things done and she's got the uncanny ability to assess people and situations. I want her on my side in any situation! Couldn't have done this without her!

Bought a home in 2013 in Ramey Fork, Warsaw, VA 22572.

We recently relocated to the Northern Neck after living in a highly populated area for many years. As many people do, we began our home search online and it became clear to us from the beginning that we needed to not only find the right home, but an outstanding real estate professional with in depth knowledge of the local area to guide us in our search. We feel truly blessed and fortunate to have found Kathryn Murray. Kathryn is an absolute professional with great knowledge of the area. She not only helped us to obtain our dream home, but also helped to troubleshoot potential issues that could arise and provided guidance and forethought throughout the process. Kathryn is an excellent communicator and kept us informed with each new piece of information as it became available. Our home purchasing situation was rather unique and Kathryn made what could have been a rocky transaction with many perils into something that was smooth as silk. She is very trustworthy and knowledgeable and provides clear guidance without being forceful. We would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone searching for a home in the Northern Neck region.
