Client Testimonials for Kristen Jones
I first met Kristen when attending an open house at Ford's Landing in July of 21. She left an impression on me with her vast knowledge of the market. Fast forward to March we were relocating from Phoenix to Old Town and needed to find a place very quickly. Kristen and Sabrina are the dream team of real estate in Old Town. Kristen is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the area. She spoke with my husband and I on the phone for a whole hour to talk to us about options we have for buying without contingencies. Kristen will answer all calls and messages immediately! We found our house in Old Town within 2 weeks of working with Kristen. We are making the transition now from Phoenix and she is still super responsive and wants to help us make our move as seamless as possible. If we want to get things done quickly and work with a realtor that will get things done quickly, Kristen is your person.
You can’t find a better agent then Kristen! Sincere, family oriented, and thoroughly knowledgeable on the process and market; Kristen helped my family get the perfect home at a competitive price point through her expert negotiating skills. We wouldn’t be in our great house and community without her. She is the absolute best, a known entity in the Alexandria market, and a great advisor through the home buying process. Thank you Kristen!
Kristen was extremely helpful in finding a nice townhouse for us a mere 25 min away from my work at The Pentagon. Sure beats the drive from Front Royal. The price was right and closing was so painless. On the ball. I highly recommend her and will again to anyone.
Our story with Kristen and Sabrina speaks to the importance of working with a realty team that has deep local knowledge. We knew the area in Old Town where we wanted to purchase a home and had been researching the market intensively through various sites for weeks. A friend had put us in touch with a different team of realtors who specialized in the DC market rather than Old Town. We had had an initial conversation with them. There was one particular house that was at the top of our list. The initial realtors encouraged us to move on because the asking price was at the high end of our budget and they didn't think that there was any way we could get the house within our budget. After hearing about our initial experience, a different friend who lives in Old Town had heard wonderful things about Kristen and strongly encouraged us to work with someone who had deep knowledge about the Old Town market. We had an initial conversation with Kristen and it was abundantly clear that she had insights into the local market (e.g., local zoning and recent permitting activity) that our prior realtors just couldn't. To make a long story short, during a holiday season Kristen made time for us, arranged for a viewing, and ultimately an inspection of the house we were initially interested in. Kristen gave us excellent advice while putting together an offer and navigating subsequent exchanges with the seller. She consistently made sure that we fully understood our options, offered guidance, and that we were making decisions that were right for us. In the end our offer was accepted under the asking price while everyone else was Christmas shopping. Kristen’s knowledge of the seasonal nature of the Old Town housing market proved to be critical. Since the purchase Kristen and Sabrina (Director of Operations) have also connected us with trusted people to do additional work on the house, transfer utilities, and make the transition as seamless as possible. We are so fortunate to have worked with Kristen and Sabrina!
Kristen was our agent for selling and buying our home-- and we are beyond thankful to have had her expertise through the entire process! We followed her advice on getting our home market ready, listing our home, negotiations & everything in between; and sold our home for so much more than we imagined. On the buying end, she listened to all our concerns & wants & found us our perfect home that checked ALL the boxes. Given the crazy market, we are still blown away how seamless the selling & buying of our home was, ALL thanks to Kristen Jones. We highly recommend anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home—to contact Kristen ASAP!
Kristen is fantastic! She was our agent for both selling and buying in a highly complicated and competitive environment and we couldn’t be happier. We especially appreciated her low-key demeanor, patience, and responsiveness—amazing responsiveness! This is critical in such a dynamic housing market. She also knows Alexandria like it’s her home — because it is. Kristen also effectively leverages the other experts needed to make it all happen — she has a very broad network of professionals and top notch chief of operations. It’s the full package. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much Kristen for all your help and your hard work you've done to help us sell our home in a short time. We are grateful to have you as our agent and couldn't be happier with the way everything worked out. Highly recommended!!
I had the pleasure of working with Kristen on both the buy and sell side of my transactions. She spent the time to understand my “must haves” and delivered the perfect property for me and my family. She is the right mix of flexibility and assertiveness across the board, which resulted in the sale of my former home in less than two days, above asking price.
Kristen has lived and worked in this area for nearly 25 years and is intimately familiar with the real estate market and trends. She's an expert and works SO hard for her clients--my husband and I feel very lucky we connected with her when we moved to Old Town a couple of years ago (and were initially renting in order to learn the area). Kristen is passionate about real estate, the community, and its residents and small businesses. Not only is Kristen incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and immediately responsive, she's also a truly kind and genuine person who cares about her clients and gives 100% every single day. Kristen helped us find our dream home in a very challenging real estate environment. We have no doubt that we were successful because Kristen represented us. She is by far the BEST agent we have EVER worked with (and this covers five home purchases over 26 years and three different states). We recommend Kristen to everyone we know. She is the total package. 10/10 in every way!
Kristen was very helpful in my search and negotiating my home purchase. She gave great advice, responded quickly and was patient with my questions throughout this process. She had great recommendations for securing a mortgage loan in this crazy market. Kristen is very knowledgeable and savvy, responds right away and has great contacts in the local area. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell in VA/DC area.
Boy were we lucky to run into Kristen at an open house. Not only did we end up buying our new home with her, but she also sold our existing house. Throughout the entire process, Kristen and Sabrina brought an unparalleled combination of market knowledge and superb customer service. Buying and selling a home can be stressful, especially in a very dynamic market environment. Kristen’s smooth touch and keen insights really made a difference for us. We bought the house of our dreams in our target Old Town neighborhood, and we sold our Gainesville house in a day for well over our expected price. Kristen’s guidance helped us navigate both smoothly. We were constantly amazed at how promptly Kristen answered a text or a question, regardless of the time. She clearly surpassed all our expectations, and we couldn’t be happier with our choice of an agent. Thank you, Kristen, for making this process a real pleasure.
Kristen and Sabrina made my first-time-home-buyer dreams come true!! Sabrina was SO flexible and scheduled a ton of places to tour in order to help me figure out what I was truly looking for. She was patient through ALL of my questions and kept me optimistic after multiple opportunities didn't work out. I started looking in January and thought it would take me until the end of the year or longer to find something I loved in my price range and in the area I wanted. But, with Sabrina's and Kristen's assistance, I was able to purchase an AMAZING condo in the perfect area within 3 months!!! I can't thank them enough!
Kristen made our first home buying experience seamless. She really honed in on what we were looking for and was able to get us the perfect house at a price that we could afford. If you want a painless (seriously!) home buying experience in Alexandria, she's the best person to represent you -- bar none.
Kristen made searching for and purchasing a home in this difficult seller's market a simple, streamlined process. She found and negotiated my dream property within my desired price point, and helped smooth out big and small issues with finesse. Her expertise and networking skills are unrivaled. If you want to work with a consummate professional on your next home purchase or sale -- call Kristen Jones!
Kristen and Sabrina were absolutely great!!! Very happy I choose them to help me find a home since I was out of the country before moving into the area. I received constant listings, status updates and check-ins, very helpful in every step. Thank you!!
I was having a hard time with my first agent and luckily made the switch to Kristen after a few weeks. Not only did she make me feel like mine was the only listing she had, but she sold my house in only 3 DAYS!!!!! She was not only able to sell my property that quickly, but was able to sell it above asking price. I had always been under the impression that real estate agents are a commodity, but after this experience i have never been so wrong about something. She and her co-worker Sabrina made the entire process effortless on my end. This was my first time selling a property and I will never work with anyone else in the DMV area.
Kristen was recommended to us through a friend of a friend as a realtor who knows what she is doing, is smart, is on top of things, and has a strong work ethic. Thanks so much to our friend of a friend for leading us her way because Kristen is all of that and more. She makes the house hunting and buying process less stressful through her sincerity and humor and ability to get to know us and then how to guide the process. Her negation skills are top notch and she is a professional with a heart. Thanks, Kristen.
Kristen Jones always kept our needs and goals in the forefront of her guidance and professionalism as she took us through this intricate process. She is an absolute gem!
Kristen Jones is our agent to the stars! She has transformed our home to be sold in less than 48 hours!!! What an incredible job to get it market ready!! I know she will sell it quickly to a lucky new owner! What a professional she is and we feel so comfortable in her capable hands!
Kristen made finding the property and the buying process seamless. She heard what we wanted in a replacement rental property and the timeframe that we were on due to the 1031 exchange. Her diligence and savvy in this market was reassuring in helping us find the right property and a timely closing.
We have been through many home sales and we both rate Kristen way above average. The details, research, approach, experience and friendliness she shows is absolutely beyond other agents. A new-home-shopper or a family wanting to sell would be very lucky to have her on their side!
Kristen was the selling agent on our new home that we purchased in September. She is professional, trust worthy, knowledgeable, helpful, responsive, and made us feel valued as well. We would highly recommend using her as an agent either as the selling agent or the buying agent!
Kristen is an excellent real estate agent. She has an upbeat attitude in a sometimes stressful job. She always contacted us immediately and worked to obtain buyers quickly. In fact, we were able to sign a sales contract before the house went to market, and she found buyers who took the house without requiring further renovations, thus saving us much time and expense.
Without doubt one of the best realtors we have ever worked with. Kristen is smart, understanding and knows very quickly what your requirements are and does not waste anytime with properties that do match your criteria. She is responsiveness and her communication and follow up is incredible. A true professional and an absolute delight to work with. Kristen is a rock star and we would not work with anyone else in Alexandria.
Proactive and detail oriented. Great negotiator. Provides the highest level of customer service and is able to quickly provide contractors/vendors to complete inspections and repairs. She was my agent on two condo purchases and quickly found a tenant for one condo.
Kristen Jones is the best agent I have ever worked with. She is personable, professional, and knowledgeable. She knows how to get the job done effectively and timely. I would recommend her to everyone looking to buy or sell their home.
With the Thanksgiving weekend behind me I have been reflecting on things I am thankful for with my new home on the top of my list.
Frank and I were looking to buy a home and narrowed our search to Old Town. We went to an open house at 738 Fords Landing Way and met Kristen. She was warm and engaging despite folks mulling all around. I e-mailed her the very next day and asked her to help us find a home, which took all of three weeks. We bought the first house we saw – 738 Fords Landing Way.
The process was so easy despite the lack of inventory last summer. Kristen clearly knows the neighborhood and could not have been more helpful in showing alternative properties and providing the pluses and minus of various locations. It didn’t matter as I knew I was going to buy 738 Fords Landing Way. The negotiations with the owners took five minutes and it was done. That’s when Kristen was truly invaluable. She helped me with finding a contractor for some modest renovations and arranged for all third party tours. Even after closing Kristen continues to help us with resources.
The home buying experience was such a pleasure from the initial search to the closing and move. I feel incredibly lucky and it all started with the right person to assist us.
McEnearney is the best in Old Town due to professionals like Kristen."
Kristen's efforts and results on our behalf throughout an extraordinarily difficult period commencing several months prior to closing, even helping with move in, were well beyond anything we expected.
