Ratings & Reviews

Professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy! That’s who Kathy Sparks is and that’s why I recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sale a home. I began working with Kathy in 2004 during the sale of my townhouse. She was instrumental in getting a contract within three weeks and key in guiding me through the purchase of my next home. Kathy truly knows the real estate business and she displayed her knowledge and tenacity when it came to ensuring everything was as it should be at my closing. I was impressed with her expertise. So much so that when In 2007 I was ready to move again – this time to a new construction it was comforting to have Kathy by my side with her network of licensed home repair contractors, home inspectors, landscapers and loan officers. In 2009 I wanted to refinance and without a second thought I called Kathy for advice. She treated me as if I were an active client; introduced me to one of her banking contacts and I was able to refinance my home with great ease. Kathy is someone you can depend on and trust. You always feel she has your best interest at heart. Thanks Kathy!

Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $400K in Centreville, VA.

Kathy Sparks is a top notch Realtor. I would recommend her to anyone. I will contiue to use her for my future selling and/or buying of houses. I consider her my one and only Realtor. She knows her job inside and out. She was great when it came to negotiating the price when I was a buyer and a seller. She has a lot of contacts for any of the normal stuff that you might need done to the house whether you are selling or buying it, with reasonable pricing. She has many more contacts for unusual circumstances like a carpet manufacturing company who installs carpet before moving into the new house, to a lawyer when there is a lien on the house and you have 3 days to resolve this issue. The issue was resolved in time for closing. Kathy helped me buy and sell 2 houses in the past. She was very accommodating to my schedule when looking for the right house. She is a very pleasant person to work with. She is a professional. She ensures all the I's are dotted and T's are crossed. When my house wasn't getting much traffic, Kathy suggested staging my house. Kathy and her sister brought some of their staging furniture, redecorated and staged my house to sell. A short time after the staging I had an offer on my house, accepted the offer, and sold the house. Kathy is the Realtor you want.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $450K in Fairfax, VA.

I wanted to sell my home in Greenbriar and came upon Kathy's website and gave her a call. Glad I did. Kathy was wonderful to work with in her guidance through the real estate process. Kathy also staged my house and made the atmosphere warm and inviting. I would not hesitate to recommend Kathy to buy or sell your home. Happy Client

Property manage a Condo home in Vienna, VA.

Kathy moves mountains for her clients. Her job comes first - ALWAYS. I don't know anyone who has more integrity or takes her job more seriously. Sometimes I think she should unplug and pamper herself but, so far, that hasn't happened. She is very good at what she does b/c she has years of experience working in one of the most dynamic real estate markets in the world. Kathy is definitely MY agent!!!!

Sold a home in 2012 in Broadlands, Leesburg, VA 20148.

My family has now sold two properties with Kathy. She was always friendly and quick to respond to all of our questions. She helped guide us through the process and it put us at ease to know she was there for us the whole time. More than that, she had fantastic insight on what people like to see in a home when they are buying, and how we should stage our homes to give a fantastic first impression. Both of the properties my family listed sold very quickly, and without any issues along the way.

Sold a home in 2011 in Blevinstown, Fairfax, VA 22030.

Kathy was great to work with. She listened to our opinions and gave us very good advice. The condo had a contract on it the day it went on the market. We were so happy with her that we used her again to sell our daughters condo in April 2012. It had a contract a few days after it went on the market. We were very happy to have seen her website when we were looking for a realtor.

Sold a home in 2012 in Jefferson, Falls Church, VA 22042.

My name is Talal, and after trying to get a loan Modification with Chase for 2 years and been denied 3 times, i was about to walk away from my home and let it go to foreclosure.Yet, i learned online about 2 optons i might try before walking away.Short Sale or Deed in Lieu.As, i start looking online for real estate agents in my area, i came across Kathy Sparks 'web site and after visiting her web site and reading both some reviews from her former clients and a very true statement from Kathy in which she says she built her clients one a time. I trusted her statment and decided to have her as my agent/savior.She is a CDPE and she is the best agent ever we 've had.After meeting Kathy and explaning our situation to her , she gave us a sense of hope and that there is a good way out based on her solid knowledge and expertise in the Real Estate World.. Kathy was able to help us qualify for the HAFA short sale program with which, we were able to get a 3K$ relocation help from Chase and we are not responsible or liable to pay for the bank for their loss nor had to pay taxes on the forgiven debt..Kathy did a very good job on both challenging and convincing my lender to accept the short sale offer we submitted in a very short time. I still can not believe that we set a new record in doing a short sale in less that 3 months. All in all, I would highly recommend Kathy Sparks to anyone looking for a professional agent, who sincerely cares and fights for your best interests , not just looking for commissions, Someone who understands the current housing market and very aware and updated with all the currents rules and laws. I thank God i met Kathy and chose her as my agent..As a former distressed homeowner with a house under water, Kathy saved me from foreclosure, thereby, she saved my credit too.I told her the day we had the closing, that i will contact her to be my agent again to buy a place when i am ready. One last thing i would like to mention about Kathy is that she always checks and discusses all options with me and also her prompt responses to any inquiries that i had via e-mail or IM. Kathy is the best , and if you want results, go with the best.You won't be disappointed. I am indebted to Kathy for her outstanding service. Talal

Sold a home in 2012 in Donovans Corner, VA 22039.

Kathy Sparks is the consummate professional, and we are very grateful to have chosen Kathy Sparks as our real estate agent. We put our house on the market during a "changing time" in real estate and all the parties involved were in different States. She offered us confidence, dedication, and determination through the entire transaction. She was always available for us when we had questions, and she took the sale of our home very personal, as if she was selling her own. I believe that level of excellence is hard to find in a real estate agent. We always felt as if she had our interests at the top of her list. We would definitely recommend Kathy Sparks to any of our friends and family members.
