KRISTEN JONES REAL ESTATE
HIGHLIGHT OF THE YEAR
A highlight of the year was renovating and decorating four homes for clients and selling them for over the list price. I love what I do, so it’s hard to think about just one highlight.
In a world where customer service is lacking in many areas, my work ethic, and hustle enable me to consistently exceed my clients expectations. Many clients refer to me as their personal concierge as they know I have high standards and am a master people connector. I am proud to say clients call me for everything from contractors, restaurant recommendations to renovation and design advice. It brings me great joy to continue to help clients many years after a transaction is over!
REAL ESTATE REFLECTIONS
Inventory is especially low, and a lot of people are choosing to do major renovations inside their homes because they do not want to lose that 3% interest rate. We will eventually see those people selling within the next year or two.
If you do good, good will come back to you.
We are professional problem solvers. There is nothing we cannot do or figure out. We have been doing design and renovation consultations this year. We are the project manager from beginning to end. We suggest tile, carpet, paint colors and tweaks to the homes that appeal to buyers.

WHAT'S IN HER BAG?
Kristen Jones: Realtor, Mom, Fashionista
Story by Liesel Schmidt
Since becoming a Realtor seven years ago, Kristen Jones has become a name synonymous with professionalism, expertise and personal service, making her one of the top agents in Old Town Alexandria and throughout the DMV. As someone who enjoys working with people and connecting them with a home that meets their needs and wants, Jones is naturally suited to the real estate industry—and it shows through her success.
“I love listening to people’s stories—their ‘why,’ where they came from and how they got where they are,” she says. “I was a teacher in my past life and a lot of those qualities transfer to real estate: patience, compassion, trust and constantly educating. The traits needed to be a successful Realtor are a natural fit for my personality. I truly love helping people and working with people of all different backgrounds. Buying a home is one of the most stressful life events and usually the biggest asset in a client’s investment portfolio. I love when my clients ping me and ask for advice on paint colors, the best new restaurant in town, recommendations for contractors or whatever else they may want suggestions for, even after a transaction has closed. I’m proud to say many of my clients have become great friends! Some clients have called me the ‘Alexandria concierge.’ They say, ‘Just text Kristen. She’ll know.’”
Jones is raising two boys with her husband. As busy as her schedule is, it can be a challenge to balance work and family. “It’s a work in progress,” she says. “We often spend our quality time on a beach, out on the water fishing and boating or on a ski mountain as a family. I love to cook and bake together with our teenage boys—the kitchen is the heart of the home!”
In her spare time, Jones loves to shop and support local Old Town businesses, do interior design work for clients and for herself, cook and bake in the winter and watch her hometown team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, with friends and neighbors in the fall.
"Being a strong woman has enabled me to cut through the tall grass faster. My grit, hustle and passion for what I do has catapulted me to be one the top agents [in] Old Town Alexandria and the DMV. I work hard and I love what I do."
