"I signed with Kathleen after interviewing a number of realtors because she stood out as the most professional and knowledgeable in the area. Going through comps, she pointed out plot, design, neighborhood, and feature differences - the same ones I had myself. Most of the others just pushed a high comp number that was going to be impossible to meet for my property.
We talked about me possibly moving out of state before the house was even listed and she was confident she could coordinate everyone for me (she did). The property required significant updates and I have the design capabilities of a rock, so she helped me with recommendations on what to prioritize, where the best value for the updates would be, what colors and flooring are in demand, and basically everything a single guy has no clue about. The pricing among those she recommended was among the best I could find and her go-to guy for updating and correcting past work was exceptional.
Every time I tried to reach Kathleen, she got back to me quickly. She created a schedule that ensured everyone could complete their work in time to show the house. I don't know how she pulled it off, but it ran well and she knew where everything stood. I did not worry about anything that was on her plate.
Kathleen put in a lot of work for this property - much more than this simple review can cover. I fully believe that had I chosen anyone else, I wouldn't have been able to accomplish the same things in the same time frame at the same cost for the same selling price.
I would hire her again." - Springfield, VA, October 2020
"Dear Kathleen, June 12, 2019
I want to thank you so very much for all of the help you recently gave me regarding the sale of my home and the purchase of my new condo in Burke Centre. As you know, I had not moved in 34 years and when you told me that I had to declutter, declutter, declutter because we were having an open house in 3 weeks, I thought that I would never be able to meet that deadline.
But with your guidance and help, I somehow managed to get all of the renovation tasks you suggested accomplished and want you to know how appreciative I am for all of the expert contractors you recommended. They were all extremely competent and professional and quickly accomplished the work that needed to be done in order to get my home on the market.
I especially appreciate your help during the staging phase, and in loaning me a beautiful comforter that transformed my "Grandmother" bedroom into a more appealing attractive modern look.
I felt that you were there for me every step of the way throughout the whole process and somehow it all came together when we managed to sell my home over the asking price and in less than two weeks.
It was a pleasure working with you. Thank you again and take care!"

“Marsha and I would like to thank you for the outstanding job you did in marketing and selling our house in the South Run development in Fairfax Station. I have worked with many realtors over the years in selling my primary residences and investment homes I’ve owned, but none of them comes close to you in providing the level of services and expertise that you offered.
You earned our trust from the start.
The staging you did using furniture, curtains, vases with flowers, etc. made the house look far better than before. The marketing brochure including the pictures you fantastic photographer took was first class.
We were very pleased and excited to get a full price offer on the first day the house was on the market. Based on your advice we went forward with the open house on the weekend since the first offer contract had not been finalized. And we were glad we did. The first offer contract did not go through and we received four (4) additional offers by the end of the night the Open House was held, all significantly above our asking price. There’s no doubt in my mind that this result would not have occurred without all your planning and efforts.
Throughout the process it became evident that you were looking out for our best interests and were striving to achieve not just a satisfactory result, but the best possible result for us. Your level of effort, detail, enthusiasm, can do attitude, and commitment was above anything else we had previously experienced or expected. Thanks so much!"

“We would like to let you know about our excellent listing and sale experience of our South Run home with Kathleen Quintarelli. While she was not the only realtor we interviewed she was by far the most knowledgeable, well prepared and enthusiastic about the South Run community. Her market analysis and advice on setting our sales price, was key in making this a successful experience. Throughout the sale and closing process she showed attention to detail and great energy. She was a joy to work with and helped us get top dollar for our home, selling it within 2 days of listing with multiple offers, raising the selling price above list. We did our part in making the home immaculate, updated and decluttered and she did the rest. One thing that really endeared us to her was her enthusiasm for our home and a “can do” attitude.
It was a great comfort to know that before our first open house we already had offers. However, Kathleen waited until after the open house to allow other interested people to make an offer also. Kathleen kept us informed throughout the process and rapidly responded to all of our questions. As I look back on this sales experience I am amazed at what a painless and exciting experience it was. If anyone plans to go with another realtor other than Kathleen – you are making a big mistake. When we left the settlement table we knew that everything that needed to be done to protect us, the sellers, had been done by Kathleen and that all documents had or would be filed properly.
We are happy to join the Kathleen fan club.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful job Kathleen Quintarelli did in arranging the recent sale of my Fairfax Station home. Kathleen is knowledgeable, practical, savvy and honest. She is excellent at giving realistic advice as well as keeping her clients apprised of current market conditions.
Having interviewed several other local realtors prior to listing with her I feel the best choice was made by far. Kathleen has no motives other than doing the best job possible as your real estate agent. Having been out of town during much of the listing period Kathleen provided me with the highest level of service, support and professionalism. Kathleen is trustworthy and her attention to detail throughout the entire sales process was very comforting.
I would recommend her highly to anyone considering the sale or purchase of a home in our community. Kathleen was instrumental in making what seemed like an enormous task, manageable, enlightening and satisfying.”

“Laurie and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for the exceptional job that Kathleen Quintarelli did as our listing agent. We had previously listed our house with a different realtor for four months before taking it off the market. Since we live in the South Run Community, we were aware of Kathleen so we scheduled an appointment with her in December. She was very honest and frank in discussing what we needed to do to sell the house. We followed her advice and the house sold almost immediately after the new listing.
Kathleen’s professional and personable approach and complete understanding of the real estate market provided us with a sense of confidence that our house would sell quickly. We were not disappointed. I would highly recommend Kathleen to anyone that was seeking a listing agent.”

Before we say goodbye, Paul and I want to express our heartfelt gratitude to you in helping us sell two houses: my parents’ home in Fairfax Station, VA and our own home in Springfield, VA. From our first meeting, you impressed us with your professionalism, honesty, expertise and helpfulness. It is obvious that you enjoy your career in real estate and you bring that enthusiasm and cad do attitude to every aspect of your relationship with your clients. You are truly remarkable in how you handle the myriad details of getting a home ready for sale, handling the advertising, showing the home, negotiating a contract and finalizing a sale. In fact, you have become my inspiration of demonstrating complete composure in the most demanding stressors!
Other realtors see your sales results and think that you have all the luck. Paul and I know that you’ve worked very, very hard for that “luck” to happen. We know that you are fully committed to helping each of your clients, working closely with them to achieve their goals, as you did with us. You always made us feel as if we were the most important people on your list. We could reach you whenever we needed you and unfailingly, you were able to answer our needs.
In closing, we want to say that it has been wonderful working with you. You began as our realtor, but you’ve become a trusted friend and advisor. We’ve enjoyed working with you so much! Our only wish is that you could help us find our new home in Colorado. We’ll miss you!"
